For nearly a quarter-century, members of the airborne electronic attack squadron VAQ-209 have launched their jets from this air base in Prince George's County for deployments over Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Earlier this month, Navy Cmdr. James King and Lt. Cmdr. Justin Van Hoose climbed into the cockpits of the squadron's last two EA-6B Prowlers for a final flight before the squadron moves this summer from Maryland to the West Coast. The Navy has ordered the squadron - the only one of its kind staffed by reservists - to join the dozen active-duty squadrons at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Washington State.

Tom McMillen has been nervously awaiting the news that Defense Secretary Richard Cheney was to deliver today.During that time, McMillen has enlisted 40 House colleagues, including the other seven members of the Maryland delegation to the House, to ward off an attempt to close any of the state's 12 military research laboratories as part of the Defense Department's plan to close military bases.Even now, at the last moment, McMillen was fielding phone calls from constituents and --ing off letters to military officials in anticipation of a decision by Cheney, who is widely expected to propose that more than 30 bases be closed or scaled back in the United States and Europe.

In a Columbia studio kitchen, two Washington state farmers pack up after preparing a luscious bowl of marinated mussels they harvested on Whidbey Island's Penn Cove. As they say their goodbyes, a clambake expert from Belfast, Maine, drops lobsters, corn and other goodies into a big pot. While cameras roll, the chef of Azul, a trendy Miami restaurant, sweeps into the studio from the airport. On a blustery morning, the warmly lighted kitchen set has become a revolving door for the guest chefs who will appear on pilot episodes of John Shields' new show, Coastal Cooking With John Shields.

I can't help but wonder why Navy Week in Baltimore was treated to a remarkable round of indifference by both city officials and this newspaper. USS Whidbey Island (LSD-41) pulled into the Inner Harbor virtually unnoticed by municipal officialdom, a remarkable reaction to a warship more than 600 feet from stem to stern. On Monday evening, Aug. 30, there was a major reception on board the host of which was Admiral John C. Harvey Jr. who, as Commander, U.S. Fleet Forces Command, is one of the highest ranking officers in the Armed Forces.

The Navy will reverse an order that has grounded three carrier air wings because of a budget crunch, Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Wash., said last night.Unexpected requirements to send additional warships to waters near Korea and Haiti this summer forced the Navy to delete flight training money for the squadrons for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year, through September.Mr. Dicks said the office of Adm. Mike Boorda, the chief of naval operations, reported the naval air squadrons will be "ungrounded" as soon as possible.
