Week Five was at the Baltimore Farmers' Market was a whole lot like Week Four but sunnier and warmer. Spinach, asparagus and strawberries were the headline attractions again, but there was more of them, and farmers said there will be even more next week. There was one big seasonal debut on April 29. Soft-shell crabs were available for the first time this year the the Baltimore Farmers' Market from A & R Seafood, $11 for two whales, $7 for two primes. Whales are 6inches and bigger, primes are between 5 and 5 1/2 inches.  A & R Seafood shares a table with Salt River Lobster, the guys with the weekly trivia question.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Among other firsts, Billy Bates may be the first man to score the winning run in a World Series game within a month after winning a footrace with a cheetah.In the tradition of a Marge Schott-owned enterprise, this is a true story.Bates is the 5-foot-7 rookie who scored on Joe Oliver's single in the 10th inning Wednesday night to give the Cincinnati Reds a 5-4 victory over the Oakland Athletics.Besides helping the Reds take a two-games-to-none lead in the Series, Bates also hopes he dispelled the notion that all he can do is outrun animals.

My 9-year-old daughter, Nyaniso, brimmed with excitement moments before the Cheetah Girls concert at Washington's Constitution Hall a week ago. That evening was sure to eclipse the previous Thursday, when I announced that we were going and she immediately proclaimed, "This is the happiest day of my life." Yet as we sat among thousands of other children and parents, all I could think was "Whose idea was it to hold this on a school night? Doesn't this twentysomething group remember when they were Cheetah Cub Girls, when it was difficult to get them out of bed in the morning after a scarce night's sleep?"

What's for dinner? Cheetahs eat gazelle, wildebeest and other hoofed animals. Serengeti Sprinter... Cheetahs are the fastest animal on land and can sprint up to 60 mph. Living mainly in Africa, the cheetah is different from other big cats because of its small head, flattened ears and lean build. The cheetah will hunt during the day, while most cats are nocturnal (night-time) hunters. Cheetahs will only drink water once every four to ten days. Do you know? How big is a litter of cheetahs?

When The Lion King officially opens tonight at the Hippodrome Theatre, in the audience - along with a delegation from the South African Embassy, local celebrities and socialites, subscribers, critics and musical theater fans - will be a lithe, extremely attentive woman jotting down notes. Twenty or so of her relatives and friends also will be among the theatergoers. But for Rachel Tucker, this is a work night. She might make a note about a dancer who isn't positioned properly, or could be better balanced on a turn, or needs more energy, or a different focus.

Former state Sen. American Joe Miedusiewski's proposal to allow nude dancing in Baltimore has sent The Block into a frenzy of sorts, leaving adult nightclub owners wondering whether naked women will save the troubled strip or put it out of business.While nudity is a concept most Block owners welcome -- dancers are currently required by liquor regulations to cover their private parts -- the threat of outside competition is not. And the naked truth is that Mr. Miedusiewski's proposal would mean just that.

AMERICAN JOE Miedusiewski is coming to the Sun building to talk about, well, nekkid women.I am a little nervous, as I usually am when this topic -- American Joe, not nekkid women -- comes up.What do you call a guy named American Joe? Do you think his close friends call him U.S. Joe? On his charge card, does it say American Express Joe?He legally changed his name to American Joe because his family owned a bar named, coincidentally, American Joe's. He's pretty lucky, actually. The bar could have been called Les Deux Magots.

FREDERICK -- As the deadly SARS epidemic swept across Asia last spring, geneticist Stephen J. O'Brien couldn't stop thinking about a 20-year-old vial of frozen cheetah tissue sitting in a backroom of his laboratory. The pinkie-sized plastic container, chilling in a tank of liquid nitrogen at minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit, holds tissue sliced from wild cats killed during a 1983 coronavirus epidemic. When investigators announced that the same type of virus was suspected of causing SARS, O'Brien wondered: Were the two viruses the same?

Betty Sherrill, named one of America's 101 most influential interior designers by House Beautiful, has a thing about leopard.Forget what you've heard about animal prints, that a little goes a long way. Sherrill has taken eight antique French chairs, covered them in faux leopard and placed them in her dining room -- on a leopard-print rug."It's practical, grandchildren-proof, simple and has impact," she explains. "And it wears well."Only a grande dame of design would call an all-leopard dining room practical.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Billy Hatcher, a regulation major-leaguer after all, is just barely good enough to believe that what he is doing is somehow possible. You know, in the realm. You get in a groove, and pop, pop, the doubles and triples fly off the bat, and the ball looks like a grapefruit, and, heck, it happens, if just never before in the entire history of the World Series.He doesn't -- couldn't really -- understand that he is an instant legend, who now can look forward to a lifetime of guest appearances at card shows across America, not to mention a shot at Letterman, or at least Arsenio Hall.

When carbon-based life forms and silicon-based machines meet, the potential for miscommunication is enormous.As Edward Stephens, former dean of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, recounted recently, when he went shopping for a computer, he thought he heard the salesman touting a "zis wheel on the bias that produces several maggots of surge amplification when snollicked to a seedy ram."The good news is that computers are beginning to have rudimentary speech and handwriting recognition skills.

RARELY HAS a hypothetical million dollars, a cartoon mascot and a TV-star dog caused so much anxiety. The fact that they recently did speaks volumes about public television and the trust it has cultivated over the years among millions of viewers.The issue was raised by a newspaper article that suggested Frito-Lay Co., the snack food producer with a plant in Maryland, was offering $1 million to the Public Broadcasting Service if it would allow a promotional spot with "Chester Cheetah," the hip mascot for its "Chee-tos" cheese curls.
