Nick Hirsch swirled yellow and blue acrylic paint around inside a clear glass Christmas tree ball. The rich colors gleamed with a metallic sheen, still clearly yellow and blue in spots, while blending in others to a bright shade of green. When the 8-year-old Finksburg boy finished his craft, Susan Harry, a program specialist with the Westminster City Recreation and Parks, looped a piece of red ribbon through the ornament's cap, replaced it and helped him package the ball with blue tissue paper in a plastic bowl.

WASHINGTON - Iraq's military is significantly smaller and more poorly equipped today than it was a decade ago when it was routed in the Persian Gulf war but it retains the ability to inflict casualties on American-led forces should President Bush decide to forcibly remove Saddam Hussein from power. Still the largest military force in the gulf region, Iraq could blunt or at least slow a threatened attack with chemical and biological weapons, an urban warfare strategy and the fierce resistance of Republican Guard units and internal security forces who have the best training and equipment, American and British military analysts say. The Iraqi army, made up mostly of conscripts and down to 430,000 men from a high of nearly 1 million at the time of the gulf war in 1991, is said by defectors to suffer from morale problems in all but its most elite units.

One afternoon, as I was driving to my home in Guilford aftercompleting several errands, the announcer on my car radio reported that the temperature was 102 degrees with the humidity at 42 percent. It did not surprise me, therefore, to notice a number of women walking along the street with their umbrellas up. This provided them protection, in a small way, from the direct rays of the sun.At the Civil War memorial service which was held at the monument in Loudon Park Cemetery June 1, there were a number of lovely ladies dressed in Confederate costumes, complete with hoop skirts, be-ribboned bonnets, lace fans and fringed parasols.

Whether you purchased perfect holiday gifts months ago or you are palming off household bric-a-brac as presents this year, keep this in mind: the way the item is wrapped matters. In fact, the cheaper the item, the more important it is to show that time and care was considered with the packaging. "When you give a gift, it is more than handing something to someone and saying 'I spent money on you,' " says Melanie Nerenberg, marketing director at Kate's Paperie, a New York-based paper boutique.

In "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," "The Grouchy Ladybug" and "The Very Busy Spider," author and illustrator Eric Carle makes insects appealing. Here Carle answers some of the questions children write to him.Why do you use small creatures in your books most of the time? When I was a small boy, my father would take me on walks across meadows and through the woods. He would lift a stone or peel back the bark of a tree and show me the living things that scurried about. I think in my books I honor my father by writing about small living things.

Next time you travel, try using plastic dry-cleaner bags to keep clothes from getting crushed. Cut the bags into shapes suitable for blouses, sweaters, etc. Then fold the clothes over the bags. You'll find they trap enough air to prevent wrinkling. And pack extras; they come in handy for storing wet bathing suits and dirty laundry.* In some cases -- with knit pants, for example -- it's easier to roll the pants and plastic together. This takes up less room and is a guarantee against creases.
