OXFORD, Ohio - With a blinding sun and a mostly empty Yager Stadium at his back, Ravens coach John Harbaugh peered into a crowd that contained so many people he wanted to thank. To his right were his parents, wife and daughter, along with other members of his extended family. To his left were about 30 of his former teammates at Miami University (Ohio). Straight ahead were a couple of rows of football fans, many either wearing Miami red or Ravens purple. It was exactly how Harbaugh wanted to commemorate a memorable and rewarding weekend.

FOR WEST Columbia artist Vinnie Bagwell, finding inspiration to create her sculptures is easy. Locating the funds to finish them in bronze is the hard part. Bagwell is the featured artist this month in an exhibit at Artists' Gallery in the American City Building. "I want to make sculptures of black people just being people like anybody else, being parents, being lovers, being friends," Bagwell said. "Often my inspiration comes from real life, sometimes from photographs and sometimes it just comes from my head."

Britcher - who finished 15th in the women's event, which concluded Tuesday - celebrated teammate Erin Hamlin's historic bronze medal almost as if she had made the podium herself.  She struggled to contain her emotions as she described what the Olympic medal - the first for the United States in a singles luge event -  would mean both to her friend and her federation.

It took a while, but New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera finally got his sendoff in what was likely his final appearance at Camden Yards. A rain delay pushed back the Orioles' ceremony honoring the retiring Rivera. But when the future Hall of Famer trotted out toward the mound before Thursday night's game - an odd sight for a player best known best for his presence at the end of games - he was met with a standing ovation. Orioles manager Buck Showalter presented Rivera with a gift from the organization, a bronze sculpture of a bat and ball, before hugging him. The piece shows the ball hitting the bat underneath the barrel, with the bat beginning to break, an homage to the success Rivera has had jamming hitters over his 19-year career.

The marriage of two disciplines, mathematics and art, may seem an unlikely union given an artist's innate desire for free expression. Meet Helaman Ferguson, whose sculpture is known for its root in mathematical design. Ferguson, of North Laurel, recently completed a massive undertaking: a 2 1/2-story, 9-plus ton bronze and granite sculpture, Umbilic Torus SC. Commissioned by the Simons Foundation, a private institution committed to the advancement of science and mathematics, the torus is being donated to Stony Brook University, in Long Island, N.Y. Ferguson, 72, who holds a doctorate in mathematics, designed umbilic torus, a three-dimensional doughnut-shaped figure with a single edge.

DALLAS -- People in Fort Worth, 30 miles west of here, have long had a pithy way of explaining the difference between the two cities. Fort Worth is where the West begins, they say. Dallas is where the East peters out.But in one enormous artistic undertaking on a 4.2-acre plot downtown, Dallas is now officially on a mission to redraw forever the boundary of the American frontier.The city is erecting a giant bronze rendering of a 19th-century cattle drive, with 70 6-foot-high steers and three trail riders herding them up a ridge and past a man-made limestone cliff a block from City Hall.

JAMES HARP, the music director at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, called the other day to ask what I knew of Baltimore-born stage and film star Francis X. Bushman. Jim will be playing the organ tomorrow for the 1925 silent Ben-Hur, which gets my vote as one of the most amazing films I've ever seen. As a child, I heard much about Bushman (1883-1966), who plays Messala, not so much because he was a big deal on the screen. The biographical details issued from my grandmother, Lily Rose, who once spotted the great Bushman and his girlfriend, actress Beverly Bayne, as they sailed down Broadway in his chauffeured, 20-foot-long, gold-trimmed, lavender Marmon limousine.
