Two soldiers involved in an altercation outside a Baltimore nightclub in which a gun was fired twice into the air could miss their deployments to Iraq this week after their attorney failed to get their trial postponed until the end of their 15-month tour. Pfc. Denario Wesson, 19, and Spc. Joshua Johnson, 24, will have to stay behind and face possible jail time, said their attorney, Arthur M. Frank, who sharply criticized prosecutors yesterday for pursuing the case and "carelessly disregarding" his client's duties to the American people at a time of war. At a hearing Monday, Judge Charles A. Chiapparelli left the final decision on a 15- to 18-month postponement to a city prosecutor, who rejected it. Earlier, according to a tape of the hearing, the judge had asked, "Do we need this kind of a bad guy to be in our Army?

AMERICANS, ONE frequently hears, yearn for a renewed sense of community, the loss of which has had implications well beyond nostalgic hearkenings to a simpler, more civil time.For example, a study of the 1995 heat wave in Chicago that killed nearly 600 people found more severe hot spells at least twice in the early 20th century, but far fewer deaths.But in those days, fewer elderly people -- the prime victims of heatstroke -- lived outside extended families, or were so averse to cooling off on front steps because of crime fears, the researchers found.

Chun King Corp. will close its Cambridge food processing plant this summer and eliminate 173 jobs as part of a manufacturing consolidation under a new owner, officials said yesterday.The announcement comes in the wake of a purchase of the Chun King name and trademark last week by Hunt-Wesson Inc., a California-based food concern that makes such products as Wesson Oil and Hunt's Ketchup.Hunt-Wesson is considering transferring the Chinese canned-food manufacturing operations, which generate estimated annual sales of more than $25 million, from the Eastern Shore to a plant the company owns in Ohio.

A gem of a tipKeep your ears open for ways to save money! For less money and a bit more effort, you can save tens of dollars by making your own earrings.Here's how: A basic, dangling earring consists of an ear wire ohook, a pin-like base, and all the beads you can hang on it. And often you can make four or five pairs for the cost of a single pair of boutique-bought earrings.At Create-A-Hobby at Columbia Mall, for example, beads -crystal, plastic, wooden, metallic or seed -- cost from 2 cents per bead to about $5, says Anne Regan, store manager.

Everyone knows a shopaholic. Perhaps you're one yourself.Generally, society treats shopaholism as a rather cute, rather endearing trait. We fondly tease shopaholics about their behavior. Many people actually brag about how much they shop, and it's also become rather trendy to complain about paying off large credit card debts.Carolyn Wesson would like all that to stop.Her new book, "Women Who Shop Too Much" (St. Martin's Press, $9.95), at first seems like a joke, a weak attempt to satirize the self-help tomes in bookstores.

WASHINGTON -- Smith & Wesson, America's largest manufacturer of handguns, has issued a "clarification" of its landmark pact with the federal government that would effectively eviscerate many of the gun controls trumpeted by the Clinton administration. Smith & Wesson's interpretation -- posted quietly on its Web site -- has forced the company back into talks with the administration that could lead to a protracted court battle. Administration officials dismissed Smith & Wesson's interpretation as more of a public relations gambit than a genuine change of heart but said they would be willing to go to court to force Smith & Wesson into compliance.

As the National Rifle Association launched an attack on his gun-lock bill, Gov. Parris N. Glendening confidently predicted yesterday the landmark legislation will pass -- and said he's trading public money for votes to make sure that happens. Glendening said he was using his control of pork-barrel spending to ensure victory for his gun-safety legislation, which is scheduled for a critical House committee vote today. "I will use the full resources of this office to save the lives of our children," the governor said.

AMERICANS may get safer guns after all. Smith & Wesson's agreement last week to settle lawsuits with the federal government and 28 local governments not only protects the company -- it has also changed the debate over gun safety. The agreement -- which contains many of the reforms President Clinton has asked Congress to approve -- sidesteps the congressional logjam. Smith & Wesson agreed to restrictions such as background checks at gun shows and designing guns so children can't fire them.

Tell me, is there anything more irritating than people who are relentlessly cheerful in the morning?I'm talking about those people who begin each day with a broad smile and a gooey Richard Simmons-like perkiness no matter how ungodly the hour.I'm talking about those people who exhibit boundless energy and unfailing good humor without having to down 27 cups of strong coffee.God, I hate those people.I hate the holier-than-thou tone behind their good spirits. I hate the way they flaunt their cheerfulness at a time when others can barely put one foot in front of the other.
