Eric Cicora can do something that some teen-agers think only their parents can do. He can make money appear out of thin air. At age 16, the Columbia resident is an accomplished magician who performs shows in the area. Cicora won first prize in the junior stage competition in August at Tannen's Magic Camp in New York and was named Stage Magician of the Year in June by the Columbia Society of Young Magicians. For Cicora, who is scheduled to perform Sunday at the "Stars of Tomorrow Magic Show" at Kahler Hall in Columbia, the accolades are the result of hours spent studying and practicing magic.

Ah, Cal Ripken's No. 8, you say. Nope. Despite being a living legend who's played forever 15 or so miles up Interstate 95, Ripken's a bald, old guy who at 39 is decrepit enough to be father to Swartz's kids.
