Maryland Zoo in Baltimore zookeeper Crystal Duff, 31, is asked all the time whether penguins would make good pets. Her answer is "no. " "They look super cute and cuddly, but they're not the nicest birds," said Duff, who lives in Perry Hall and has worked at the zoo since 2009. Duff has experienced a few penguin bites, but still really likes her job. At the newly unveiled Penguin Coast exhibit, she not only watches over the 54 endangered African penguins, she cleans up after them.

Developers of a large senior living complex in Annapolis have more work to do before their proposal can gain preliminary environmental approval from city officials. On Friday the city sent developers of Crystal Spring Annapolis - a proposed mix of senior housing, townhouses and shops on 180 acres - a lengthy list of revisions that need to be made before the project's forest conservation plan can win approval, an early but key step in the process. Crystal Spring would include 350 apartments and cottages for seniors and 75 beds for nursing care and assisted living.

Richard Gere talking Tibetan politics, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon analyzing U.S. immigration policy, Geena Davis wearing a dress only she could wear plus wooden tributes and lots of kitsch.The telecast of the 65th annual Academy Awards last night was very, well, Hollywood in its stranger and flakier moments. But, more than anything else, it was a surprisingly flat TV show.Maybe it was just that expectations were so high after Jack Palance's one-armed pushups and Billy Crystal's brilliant running commentary on Palance and the pushups last year.

I probably won't make the four-hour drive to see comedian Billy Crystal make his exhibition debut for the New York Yankees tomorrow in Tampa, but I'll definitely check the box score to see whether he goes deep against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Crystal isn't the first celebrity to suit up with a major league team in the spring, but he might be the oldest. Thursday is the day before his 60th birthday. I'd be in favor of something similar taking place at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, but I'm afraid if a big star showed up at Orioles camp, Andy MacPhail would try to trade him for five prospects.

This is hard to believe -- an Oscar telecast with nothing to really complain about.If Billy Crystal had the flu last night, maybe he should get sick more often. Crystal was funny, smart and smooth as host of the show. Following a pointless opening montage of Hollywood Past that bode ill for the evening, Crystal came on stage and turned it around in minutes with a clever parody of the traditional opening musical number.The telecast itself was flexible enough to allow for some of the genuine flakiness of Hollywood -- such as Jack Palance's getting down on the stage and doing one-arm push-ups in the middle of his acceptance speech for the Best Supporting Actor award he received for his role in "City Slickers."

It was a dead rat the detective found on his windshield of his Toyota Corolla on a fall morning, the corpse peeking out from under the windshield wiper — a sign, he thought, that his colleagues in the department saw him as a snitch. Detective Joseph Crystal had been in contact with prosecutors who eventually filed charges against his sergeant and another officer in connection with the beating of a drug suspect. The rat appeared a few weeks later. Mark Cheshire, a spokesman for State's Attorney's Gregg L. Bernstein, said that prosecutors and police investigated the incident as an act of witness intimidation but could not determine who was behind it. Attorneys for the two officers — whom a Baltimore jury convicted last week — said their clients had nothing to do with the rat. Sgt. Marinos Gialamas was found guilty of misconduct, while Officer Anthony Williams was convicted of assault and obstruction of justice, after he asked his girlfriend, Nakishia Epps, to lie to internal affairs investigators.

GAITHERSBURG - It started 7,000 miles away, in China - that was the first time Crystal Wang held a table tennis racket. "Her grandparents introduce her to this game," Crystal's father, Quandou Wang, said. Crystal was visiting them in the summer of 2007, and they took her to a local community center where table tennis abounded and an instructor suggested she give it a shot. Five years old at the time, Crystal could barely see over the table - the average 5-year-old stands 40 inches tall, and a standard table tennis table sits 30 inches off the ground.

After touring the expansion of the Panama Canal, Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Tuesday they plan to increase their advocacy for a proposed CSX transfer station in Baltimore.  "You had [Panama] President [Ricardo] Martinelli saying, 'Look, any port on the East Coast that doesn't dredge to 50-feet deep, and does not expand the size of their dock and intermodel connections, they're going to lose out," Biden said in a telephone interview from Panama with The Baltimore Sun. "Baltimore is more ready than others," Biden said, citing the port's already-deep dredging.

Crystal, the chief executive officer who presided over the recent demise of Merry-Go-Round Enterprises Inc., rebounded without much ado yesterday as the president and chief executive officer of another apparel chain, Lerner New York.The Feb. 2 collapse of Joppa-based Merry-Go-Round did not appear to be a factor when Mr. Crystal was selected to oversee Lerner, a division of Limited Inc., with $1 billion in annual sales and 835 stores geared toward working women."What he brings to the table is that he's an accomplished merchant and leader, and I think he will give clear direction to the business," said Alfred S.

CITY SLICKERS0$ RCA/Columbia Pictures Home Video$99.95"City Slickers" is slick all right -- a real Hollywood-style button puncher of a comedy that has something for everyone. It's well-crafted and predictable, but then star Billy Crystal is known for his entertainment value, not his artistic aspirations.One look at the film's credits should tell what's to come: Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandell, the writers behind Ron Howard hits like "Splash" and "Parenthood," have taken the western motif (the rage since "Dances With Wolves")
