SOMERS, Mont. -- Let me just say for the record that I own a fur coat. Of a condition that could kindly be called ''vintage,'' this beaver-pelt coat came into my possession on the occasion of my wedding, a time when my attitude toward nature could kindly be called ''urban.''I remember thinking what a shame it was that the beauty of the Rocky Mountains should be troubled by all those grizzly bears, ++ and I wondered why anyone would want more rather than fewer of them.After moving to Montana, however, neither my urban outlook nor my marriage stood the test of time, and the beaver coat, growing moth-eaten in its storage box, has outlasted them both.

“If you can walk, you can jump,” says Danny Serpico, whose new business venture relies on the fun (and vigor) of bouncing. The 31,000-square-foot Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park -- more trampoline than flooring -- has a lineup of activities for a variety of ages. Dodgeball, basketball and a foam pit appeal to teens and tweens for special events on Friday and Saturday nights, while toddlers get their own special jump time on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. “It's a safe environment that you can bring your family and friends,” says manager Serpico, a Columbia native.

Columbia resident James M. Stuart has avoided a possible jail stay in a legal battle over his housekeeping, settling his dispute with Columbia Association authorities before it got to a judge.Stuart faced a contempt of court charge after being sued by the association for allegedly violating strict aesthetic rules, known as covenants. At issue were algae on the side of his house in Owen Brown, a trampoline-turned-planter in his back yard and a 1974 Corvette that CA officials thought was out of commission that he kept in the driveway.

Matt Hamel took a class three years ago at Emilia's Acrobatics, Gymnastics and Cheerleading in Columbia that introduced him to gymnastics' multiple events. He also learned a little bit about the trampoline. Konstantin Gulisashvili helped teach that class and was on the lookout for good athletes to help build a new competitive trampoline team in the area. He pulled Matt aside after one workout and quietly asked if he would be interested in joining. Matt accepted the offer and rapidly became a force in the trampoline world.

WALL STREET is not the economy. Repeat, Wall Street is not the economy.With the Dow Jones average bouncing around like a kid on a trampoline down Friday 171 points, up Monday 110 points, flattening out yesterday after plunging 95 points around the noon hour the mantra cited above is a good recipe for sanity.The economy marches to the beat of a thousand drummers as investors, big and little, use everything from corporate analysis to tea leaves to Delphic utterances from the Fed to ascertain where the cacophony is leading.

SYDNEY, Australia - It's hard to imagine an 86-year-old man who responds to the nickname "Hands." But then, you've probably never met George "Hands" Nissen, the one-time carnival performer who earned a living performing on his hands instead of his feet. Nissen is the father of the trampoline and the Abner Doubleday of an honest-to-goodness Olympic sport. "I'm a ham," Nissen said last night, as the sport he helped create made its Olympic debut with the women's trampoline. That's right, an Olympic schedule already overloaded with what some consider such "trash sports" as beach volleyball, synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics has found room for gymnastics trampoline.

Mention trampolines to orthopedic surgeon Hugh W. Baugher and he thinks fractured forearms, sprained ankles, broken necks, pure lunacy."I've got neighbors who are intelligent people up the hill," he says impatiently. "They have MBAs from Stanford. I told them they were crazy [to own a trampoline]."They finally folded it up when all three of their children were in casts."In Dr. Baugher's Ruxton neighborhood -- and in back yards across the country -- trampolines are sprouting like mushrooms after a summer rain.

So you live in a Columbia house where you raised your son and put a trampoline in the back yard so he could exercise his asthmatic lungs. Besides your home and family, your other source of pride is your 1974 Corvette that you keep under a $300 custom cover in your driveway.The home has fared pretty well in the past 21 years, but you get seasonal patches of algae on the side of the house, which you clean every summer. The trampoline has broken, and since your son is going off to college your wife decides she wants to hang plants on the rim.Little did you know that the algae, the trampoline and the Corvette could land you in court -- even in jail -- for allegedly violating Columbia's strict aesthetic covenants.

Kudzu, the vine, is an insidious plant, but "Kudzu," the musical, is a gentle, amiable creature.This light satire of things Southern, receiving a pleasing world premiere at Ford's Theatre in Washington, is a joint venture by Jack Herrick and Bland Simpson, two members of the string band the Red Clay Ramblers, and Doug Marlette, the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist whose comic strip about a teen-age boy named "Kudzu" is syndicated in 300 newspapers,...
