"Clapton plays the blues."Not exactly stop-the-presses news, is it? After all, Eric Clapton has been playing the blues (or something like them) since he started making records some 29 years ago with the Yardbirds. In that time, he's paid tribute to everyone from Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters to Albert King and Robert Cray, building a reputation as one of English rock's premier bluesmen in the process.So it probably seems silly to say there's anything novel about the all-blues approach he adopts for "From the Cradle" (Reprise 45735, arriving in stores today)

Swimmers describe the race as a snarling beast that will rob them of the energy needed for other endeavors. The greatest of all time, Michael Phelps, says he'll never swim it again. Too painful. You'll hear no such talk, however, from Bel Air native Chase Kalisz. For the 20-year-old Kalisz, the 400-meter individual medley is "my baby. " Phelps will garner most of the attention Friday as he swims the 100-meter butterfly, his marquee race of the Phillips 66 National Championships.

Your editorial, "Breaking a vicious cycle" (July 14) hits the nail on the head. With U.S. youth incarceration rates the highest in the world - greater than the rates of the other 10 most developed countries combined - something is tragically wrong. It is disturbing that once incarcerated as a youth, even for less serious offenses, these individuals have an increased likelihood of returning to prison and a decreased chance of securing gainful employment later in life. As you point out, the Youth PROMISE Act offers a more effective approach to juvenile crime.

After a quietly ominous start, the first movement of Richard Danielpour's new symphony, Rocking the Cradle, explodes with pounding chords. The movement is called "Shock and Awe." The second movement, alternately reflective and anguished, has an equally strong title: "In Memory of the Innocent." Commissioned by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra several years ago, and premiered last night, Rocking the Cradle is a strong statement against the Iraq war by a major American composer. (Other performances are tonight and tomorrow morning.

North Carroll wrestler Tyler Macleod found himself in a precarious situation in the finals of McDonogh's Ray Oliver Tournament last month. His opponent, McDonogh freshman Shane Milam, had run up an 11-0 lead and, with growing momentum, was coming closer to scoring a 15-0 technical fall - wrestling's version of the "slaughter rule" - over Macleod. But Macleod didn't panic. The 140-pound senior knew he carried with him a trump card - his signature, finishing move, the cradle, and that it was only a matter of time before he found a way to catch the McDonogh wrestler in it. Sure enough, near the end of the second period, Macleod slapped the cradle on Milam and nearly pinned the freshman as time expired.

On a recent Sunday afternoon, Robert Cradle stood in the middle of a small storefront hair salon in Severn, carefully surveying the activity around him: a dozen youths armed with scissors, blow-dryers and brushes helping each other trim, shampoo, braid and shave. "Start from the roots and pull downward," said Cradle, demonstrating a round brush on a section of 9-year-old Brittany Fenwick's hair. The girl winced as her sister, Shardae Fenwick, 13, took the brush from Cradle and tugged at her thick, dark tresses.

OXFORD, OHIO -- As Kristen Visbal scanned the Internet looking for images of John Harbaugh, she kept encountering the Ravens' head coach in the same pose. Picture-after-picture, there was Harbaugh, wide-eyed and steel-jawed, standing on the sideline with his arm outstretched in the air. "Every person has a pose that they assume on a regular basis," Visbal said. "One of those for John was putting his fist in the air. It's a nice, strong position. " For Visbal, it's only fitting for Harbaugh to be immortalized in that way. The Delaware-based sculptor's bronze statue of the Super Bowl -winning head coach will be erected Saturday in the famed Cradle of Coaches at Miami University of Ohio, Harbaugh's alma mater.

OXFORD, Ohio - With a blinding sun and a mostly empty Yager Stadium at his back, Ravens coach John Harbaugh peered into a crowd that contained so many people he wanted to thank. To his right were his parents, wife and daughter, along with other members of his extended family. To his left were about 30 of his former teammates at Miami University (Ohio). Straight ahead were a couple of rows of football fans, many either wearing Miami red or Ravens purple. It was exactly how Harbaugh wanted to commemorate a memorable and rewarding weekend.

At the Oasis homeless shelter in Baltimore, a man carrying a plastic bag and a backpack hesitantly enters the cavernous, nearly empty room - its brick walls newly painted pale pink. "They told me I could get my hair cut here," he says softly. Rob Cradle warmly welcomes the man to his makeshift barber's station - his clippers, scissors, towels and aftershave neatly set up on a windowsill. Once seated in the chair, the man - whose name is Michael - closes his eyes as Cradle begins to trim with the electric clippers, finishing with a splash of aftershave and a brush of the shoulders to whisk away fallen hair.

At first it looks like another outrageous story from the unsavory annals of big-time college football recruiting: Alabama has offered a scholarship to an eighth-grader . Where will it all end? If middle-school kids are being wooed by SEC powerhouses, will precocious fifth-graders with muscles be next? Then, what, third-graders who like to smack into other kids on the playground? Except it turns out Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide are probably making a smart move here.
