Baltimoreans were saddened to learn this week of the death of Blythe, the female peregrine falcon who since 1985 had nested with her mate Beauregard on a 33rd-floor ledge of the USF&G Building in downtown Baltimore. A maintenance worker discovered her body on the roof of a building half a mile away during a routine roof inspection. The apparent cause of death was injury and starvation.Blythe raised more than two dozen chicks in her downtown aerie, helping to replenish the nation's depleted falcon population of which there are fewer than 100 nesting pairs east of the Mississippi River.

The 14 children sat at tables in the cafeteria at George D. Lisby Elementary School at Hillsdale and made reindeer antlers. Using pre-cut antlers of brown foam paper, the girls decorated them with adhesive Christmas designs that included candy canes, snowflakes, snowmen, peppermint candy and holly leaves. "The girls are making the antlers for a fundraiser," said Kathy Blythe, the counselor at the school for the past 17 years. "They will sell them all week, then everyone will wear them on Friday, which is Reindeer Day."

Not since Ewa Podles, the contralto powerhouse from Poland, blew the roof off the joint two years ago has the audience for Shriver Hall Concert Series been as jolted by a human voice as it was Sunday night. New York-born mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe, whose credits include the 1999 Richard Tucker Award, filled the space with a sound that was exceptionally, excitingly grand in size and vibrancy. You just don't hear voices with that kind of visceral impact every day. Even though the timbre in this case might not be the warmest around, Blythe avoids stridency, even in all-out mode.

Although Fallston field hockey coach Alice Puckett felt confident about her team coming into this season, she knew the Cougars had plenty of question marks. For example, even though several experienced players were returning, Fallston had lost five starters and 13 players overall from last year's 8-6 team. The biggest concern was how quickly everything could come together. The Cougars certainly have pleased Puckett so far, getting help from older and younger players at both ends of the field.

It was part of the territory of the fictional outlaw of Sherwood Forest, Robin Hood.It was also known in English folklore as home to a people of breathtaking stupidity.
