Something like

  % I hate all capitals
  \section{Model Parameters}{
    These are one of the following
     \item bla text
     \item blo more text
     \item blu still more

or rather 

  % I hate all capitals
  \section{Model Parameters}{
    These are one of the following
     \item{bla}{text about bla}
     \item{blo}{more text........}
     \item{blu}{still some about blu ...}

will work, I hope.
