TYSONS CORNER, Va. - It's hard to hear the call of the wild above the roar of the Beltway. But outdoors outfitter L. L. Bean hopes customers will be listening closely today when it opens its first retail store outside Maine in one of the region's highest-octane malls, Tysons Corner Center. Will the company known for flannel shirts and down vests be able to compete in an arena occupied by Bloomingdale's, Brooks Brothers and Nordstrom, or will Bean be malled by the competition? "We don't tread into this lightly," Bean spokesman Rich Donaldson said.

MCLEAN, Va. -- With the din of Arabic speakers and the waving of the Iraqi flag yesterday, the lobby of the Best Western here resembled that of an upscale Baghdad hotel. But the festive scene of Iraqi expatriates voting in Northern Virginia for their country's first full-term parliament contrasted with the combat zone they call home. By most accounts of the voters here, the U.S.-led invasion of their country was a good thing. "Hopefully, they will do the same for others," Iraqi Mukhlis Dosky said of the American military.

TYSONS CORNER, Va. - A shopper at the Tysons Corner Center mall outside Washington yesterday saw the crush of a hundred reporters, TV camera crews and security guards and could imagine only one visitor. "Who is this?" she wondered, "George Bush?" No, it was Steven P. Jobs, co-founder of Apple Computer Inc., who made a splash showing off the company's first store in its 25-year history. The unveiling of the store - it opens to the public Saturday - caused a stir in the computer industry, where the company is one of the best-known and, analysts said, least understood.

Promoter Don King landed the first big blow in the heavyweight conflict over Nov. 4 -- when Mike Tyson and Buster Mathis Jr. goes head-to-head against Riddick Bowe and Evander Holyfield at rival Las Vegas casinos.According to a boxing source, King has reached a deal for an undisclosed sum with Rupert Murdoch's Fox Network to show Tyson vs. Mathis at the MGM Grand on Fox affiliates throughout the country. There will be no charge to view the non-title bout.This, in effect, would undermine plans by Time-Warner, the parent company of HBO, to sell the Bowe-Holyfield III bout, scheduled at Caesars Palace, on pay-per-view for an estimated $40.A spokesman for Fox confirmed that a news conference will be held in New York today to announce its agreement with King.
