Xtra Heat served notice with a rousing victory Saturday in the Barbara Fritchie Handicap that she is still a star at 4. The final word on her 3-year-old season will be delivered tonight at the 31st Eclipse awards banquet in Miami Beach, Fla. The Laurel-based filly is a finalist for a coveted Eclipse statuette in two categories: 3-year-old filly and sprinter. A sprinter has never won the Eclipse for 3-year-old filly.

The other finalists for sprinter are Squirtle Squirt, who defeated Xtra Heat in the Breeders' Cup Sprint, and Delaware Township, who defeated her in the Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash.

Compared with the Grammy Awards, the Academy Awards have it easy. Year in and year out, the fundamental things apply in movies -- writing, directing, acting, illusion-making techniques -- and the 75th annual Oscars still have only two dozen categories. The Grammy Awards, which return to New York City tonight for the first time since 1998, suffer the perils of pluralism. Long ago, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences decided that, except for the top Grammy awards, it was unfair to pit classical music against pop, country against gospel or, more recently, polkas against Native American music.

There wasn't even any film in the camcorder, remembers Nicole Roberts' mother, Brenda. But that minor technicality didn't stop 11-year-old Nicole and her neighborhood buddies from taping - or pretending to tape - "Monsters in the Woods," which they had written, cast and rehearsed. By then, Nicole had already distinguished herself as a visual artist. When she was little, she drew people proportionately with heads, necks, arms and shoulders, while her friends drew stick figures. At Sudbrook Magnet Middle School, a teacher told Brenda E. Roberts that her daughter "really had it."

When Carlos Santana released his first album, way back in 1969, neither Ricky Martin, Backstreet Boys nor the members of TLC had even been born. So how must the veteran rocker feel to be competing against those young sprats for the Record of the Year Grammy? Probably about the same as Cher. When the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced its nominations for the 42nd annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles yesterday, the slate for the top three awards -- Record, Song, and Album of the Year -- shaped up as a battle of the ages.

An article about the Oscar nominations in yesterday's editions said that Al Pacino was the first male to win a nomination in both acting and supporting acting categories. However, in 1944 Barry Fitzgerald received nominations in the acting and supporting acting categories for the same role in "Going My Way." That practice has subsequently been disallowed by the Academy.

For years, a group of black men has gathered daily at a cigar shop across from Cross Street Market, here in Baltimore. We talk politics and sports amid plumes of pipe and cigar smoke. However, conversation halts at 7 p.m. when the quiz show "Jeopardy" begins. The wide-screen display, mounted high on an exposed brick wall, shutters conversation when the words: "This. Is. Jeopardy!" bellow from the speakers. An eclectic group of business owners, active/retired police officers, firefighters, salesmen and educators congregate and shout "questions" to the proffered answers.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. plans to announce today that it will pay $350,000 to a group of African-American job candidates to resolve hiring-diversity concerns raised by the federal government. A routine audit by the U.S. Department of Labor found substantially lower levels of African-American hires in two utility trainee job classifications than would be expected between December 2007 and November 2008, based on the pool of applicants, BGE said. BGE CEO Kenneth W. DeFontes Jr. said the audit did not find similar problems in the company's 229 other job categories.

Last season, Towson compiled a 7-4 record and captured a share of the Colonial Athletic Association championship despite ranking 85th in the Football Championship Subdivision in turnover margin. This fall, the team has been markedly better in that department. Three games into the campaign, the Tigers are tied for ninth in the nation with a 2.0 turnover margin average. The team has forced eight takeaways while committing just two giveways for a turnover ratio of +6, which is bettered only by a +11 margin shared by South Dakota State and Western Illinois and a +7 owned by Fordham.

Netflix and its Baltimore-based "House of Cards" made history Thursday as the Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced in Los Angeles. It was the first time a series not presented on over-the-air broadcast or cable TV was nominated in the major categories. "House of Cards" offered a new business model for the TV industry when it debuted in February with a full season's worth of episodes streaming online. And while the money part of the model is still being debated, the artistic excellence of the series was affirmed with nominations in some of the biggest categories: best drama, Kevin Spacey for best dramatic actor and Robin Wright for best dramatic actress.

Sisqo's mother couldn't even watch. "I'm tired of this drama," says Carolyn Andrews, Sisqo's mom, hours before the show. "I'm going to a Chris Rock movie." As the Grammys got underway last night and winners names were announced, one thing became crystal clear: There was no love in the house for Baltimore's native son. Nominated in four categories (Best New Artist, Best R&B Album, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song) largely because of his ode to women's undies, the ubiquitous "Thong Song," Sisqo was passed over at award time for other artists, who for one reason or another have been taken more seriously by critics.

“The competition starts now,” Simon said at the beginning of the episode. I guess the last four weeks have been pretend. Sixty will become 24! No more joking around, this is serious.  We've got four groups; teens, young adults, over 25 and groups. Only six acts in each group will move on. Each group will get one mentor. I call this pop culture calculus 101. First group to get the news were the young adults. Right away, they called chetah face, I mean Cece Frey, up to tell her that she's through.
