WE'LL GET UP A PETITION

Change may soon be coming to her neighborhood in Fayette-ville, N.C., and Karen Williams is definitely in favor of it. So is Cami Walker, and she's confident that all five other homeowners in their subdivision will be, too. In favor of what? Why, having the road that connects their properties renamed. The current one, you see, makes them uncomfortable - "embarrassed," as Williams puts it. In case you were wondering, it's Anthrax Street. No word on why, except that the planning commission approves any proposed name as long as it is unique and neither obscene nor too long.

WELL, IT LOOKED SUSPICIOUS

Meanwhile, firefighters in moon suits were collecting white powder from the park and gardens outside parliament in Nicosia, Cyprus, after someone out for an early-morning walk reported strange markings on the ground. Some of them were in the shape of arrows, as though pointing toward a particular destination. Was it anthrax? Another anthrax hoax? Neither, it seems. At last report, the guessing was chalk used to line athletic fields, or perhaps flour. The markings apparently were put there by a local runners' club.

Cities where private planes face the most scrutiny

Flights by private planes at more than 110 US airports - among them Boston, New York, and Washington - still are banned or must conform to tight restrictions following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. In 15 metropolitan areas, private pilots must file flight plans with the Federal Aviation Administration, as if they were operating under instrument-flight rules. The new rules have grounded up to 90 percent of general aviation flights in some areas. The limited areas:

Atlanta New York

Boston Orlando, Fla.

Chicago Philadelphia

Denver Pittsburgh

Detroit San Diego

Las Vegas San Francisco

Los Angeles Washington

Miami
