Severna Park volleyball hitter Christi Laite traveled great lengths over the summer in an effort to step up her game. To Arizona, to be exact. The junior, in her fourth year playing the sport, was part of a team that took part in a high-level international tournament in Tucson, where she strived to build on her reputation as a dominant front-row hitter. Laite has rounded out her game with improved passing and defense, and leads the young Falcons in their quest for a second straight Anne Arundel County title.

Forget Baltimore's hot, muggy weather. Christy Larrimore is a summer breeze personified as she dashes out to grab lunch at Harvest Table, from her new job as a retail marketing operations coordinator at Under Armour. We also found out Larrimore isn't the first fashion plate in the family to be "Glimpsed." It seems her new stepdad is Jack Antwerpen, who we ran across a few months ago at the Prime Rib as he and her mom were celebrating their forthcoming nuptials. Sorry, Jack, your style is most definitely unique, but Christy's cobalt blue shirt dress, ballet flats and gorgeous tote handbag are winners.

HOW DO I look?" "As you always do ... direct and vague, sweet and ironic." That is an exchange in the new film Away From Her. It happens between Julie Christie, as a woman succumbing to Alzheimer's, and Gordon Pinsent as her husband. It is an apt and heartbreaking observation, coming as her character prepares to be committed to a long-term care facility. And though it is a line from Alice Munro's 1999 short story The Bear Came Over the Mountain, upon which this movie is based, it is impossible to believe that description was written with anyone else but Miss Christie in mind.
