Question: I need a movable awning for sun and rain protection over my deck and windows in summer. I still want a sky view at night and passive solar heat in the winter. What is the best type of awning to use? - Paul N. Answer: There are several types of movable awnings available, but the most convenient for your needs is a lateral-arm retractable awning. It's easy to install, open and close, and it is very durable. The only support for a retractable awning is attached to the house wall, so you eliminate the inconvenience of having awning supports at the outer corners of the deck or patio.

A hula dancer stretched across a sailor's upper arm, her hips swaying whenever he flexes a biceps; a dainty heart decorating a dainty ankle; a beefy forearm proclaiming "Mother" in florid script. Think of tattoos and these are the images that spring to mind. And who wears tattoos? Bikers, truckers, hipsters - and an Oxford-educated professor of history at Bryn Mawr College. Professor Jane Caplan, 52, declined recently to show a reporter the three tattoos on her arms, which include Chinese characters and a monogram of her initials.

It was about 2 a.m. yesterday and the two boys were stranded in Riverside, several miles from their homes in Delanco and Beverly, Burlington County. John Krenzel, 16, and Bill Saltzman, 17, hopped aboard a slow-moving Conrail train, hoping for an easy trip home, police said. But by the time the heavy freight train reached their towns, it had picked up speed and was heading toward Bordentown at about 10 miles per hour, too fast for the boys to leap to the gravel and dirt beside the tracks.

When Nelson Tyler landed on the field after colliding with an opposing football player, it was immediately apparent that something was seriously wrong. Unable to move his arms or legs, Tyler, 13, was carried out on a stretcher from the Camden City Youth Football League game nearly two weeks ago. "Even before the play was whistled dead, the coaches rushed to his aid," said the Rev. Chris Collins of Camden's Little Rock Baptist Church, who coaches for Nelson's team, the Whitman Park Tigers.

I would be remiss if I didn't record the shocked disbelief among Sonny Liston's many local friends when it was learned the former heavyweight champion had been found dead in Las Vegas. Sonny's body was discovered on Jan. 5, 1971, by his wife, Geraldine, in their luxury home adjoining a country club in Paradise Valley, two miles east of the famed Las Vegas "strip. " Geraldine, just back from an extended tour of holiday visits with relatives and friends, had been away from the house for 10 days.

FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD Robyn Reid didn't want an abortion. But when her grandmother forcibly took her to an abortion clinic one wintry day in 1998, Reid figured she'd just tell the doctor her wishes and then sneak away. Instead, Kermit Gosnell barked: "I don't have time for this!" He then ripped off her clothes, spanked her, wrestled her onto a dirty surgical stretcher, tied her flailing arms and legs down and pumped sedatives into her until she quit screaming and lost consciousness, she told the Daily News yesterday.

Brothers Stefan and Tyler Delp have spent every second of their lives together. They go to the same schools, play the violin in tandem, and recently sang a duet, "Put Your Arms Around Someone," at their school's spring hop. But the boys have never seen each other's faces except for some sleight of hand with mirrors or computers. The boys, born at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital 19 years ago, are a rare set of identical twins, joined at the head so one faces forward while the other is turned backward.

Since it came out that President Reagan keeps a personal diary, congressmen have suggested that he show it to investigators to help them unravel the Iran arms deal. Now he has agreed to let them peek at certain parts. But I'm afraid they are going to be disappointed. A White House source has shown me the diary. And it's clear that the president was innocent of wrongdoing. For example, there is the first mention of Iran and arms during August 1985: "Poindexter came in and asked me what I thought of an idea to sell arms to Iran.
