Cara G. Becker, a Towson University student and entrepreneur whose spirit of volunteering began in her childhood, died Monday of leukemia at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Towson resident was 21. "In her young life, Cara Becker touched so many people, in such special ways, which is why 2,000 of them came to Baltimore Hebrew Congregation [on] New Year's Day to listen to Cara's favorite songs, to see her infectious smile and beautiful face on the video," said Richard Sher, the Baltimore broadcaster and longtime family friend.

Freeland, Md. -- LAZY MID-DAY on the old farmhouse porch finds Roger Caras refereeing a disagreement between dogs, accepting a job to lecture on venomous snakes for the New England Aquarium, taking that call from a humane society official and another helping of salad, consulting the telephone man about installing another line and explaining his new job as president of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.One of America's most famous animal lovers -- he's spent 30 years writing about them and almost as long reporting on them -- Caras does fit the portrait of the true dog fancier: He's a man impervious to drool and generous with the dog biscuits.

I NEED to say a couple of things today in appreciation of two men who left us this week -- Jack Collins, in every way a model of the good man, mentor and teacher, and Roger Caras, one of the world's leading advocates for animals and the environment. I admired them both -- one for his leadership, the other for his craft. They both tried to build a better world -- one as an educator in a small town, the other as a journalist in the global village of television. A few years ago, I was surprised and delighted to learn that Roger Caras, in semiretirement, had bought a farm in northern Baltimore County.

Both the WWE and World Heavyweight champions walked out of Sunday's Night of Champions pay-per-view with their titles in tow. Sheamus cleanly put away his rival Alberto Del Rio, while CM Punk retained his title after a controversial double-pin with John Cena. But as Paul Heyman was quick to point out on tonight's Raw, in a situation like that, the champion is to be declared the winner. Both challengers, though, laid claim to another shot at the title, so General Manager AJ Lee put all four men in a tag team match that she said could have ramifications on who could possibly get a rematch.
