Celine Dion speaks of her epiphany. Not the recent birth of her first child or the career rocket of the Titanic soundtrack in 1999. The epiphany arrived two years ago as she sat in a Las Vegas casino. "It changed my life and my entire way of thinking about performances on stage." And, it turns out, the moment may also reshape the life of the evolving entertainment scene in the high-rolling desert city. Dion, who stepped away from the public concert stage on New Year's Eve 1999 to begin the role of new mother, has agreed to an unprecedented pact that will see her perform five nights a week for 40 weeks a year over three years at Caesar's Palace.

Maryland freshman Dion Wiley's summer began the day he reported to school in early June for classes, official team workouts and pickup games. When his new Terps teammates went home for a couple of weeks in mid-August, Wiley's basketball education continued in Europe. In what was the first trip out of the country for the 18-year-old from Prince George's County, Wiley was part of a regional all-star team of college players that spent more than a week in England, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.

His parents, his girlfriend and his teammates all say the same thing about Domonique Foxworth. The Ravens cornerback might look like a 26-year-old, he might run like a 26-year-old, but he thinks and conducts his life like a 40-year-old - always has. n His parents considered him more responsible than his brother, who is two years older. His NFL mentor, Champ Bailey, considered him the levelheaded one in their relationship. Whether the subject is President Barack Obama, the role of a black athlete in modern society or the NFL players union's treatment of retired players, Foxworth can deliver a well-crafted opinion.

Violence that claimed the life of a 15-year-old boy Saturday - one of three victims of reported weekend homicides in the city - brought a crowd of more than 100 people last night to the site of the killing in East Baltimore. The teenager, Dion Williams of the 3200 block of E. Lombard St., was found shot several times in the 2700 block of E. Monument St. about 2 a.m. Saturday and died a short time later at Hopkins Hospital. A dozen balloons and as many teddy bears adorned a light pole near where Dion, a 10th-grader and a football player at Lake Clifton High School, was shot.

Music may be an art first and foremost, but there's also a lot of craft involved. Particularly on the performance end, where taste and timing are worthless without the ability to implement them. After all, there are few things as frustrating for music lovers as hearing a weak voice struggle to carry a strong melody.But when dealing with virtuosos, the situation reverses. If a singer has been blessed with a voice that can do almost anything, ability matters less than taste and timing. Because there's nothing more embarrassing than hearing a great voice squandered on a mediocre melody.

Four-fifths of Maryland's highly ranked 2014 recruiting class will be showcased Saturday in the 41st Capital Classic at T.C. Williams High in Alexandria, Va. Unlike two years ago, when all five players recruited by the Terps played together, this year's game will feature two on each team. Guards Melo Trimble and Dion Wiley will represent the Capital All-Stars, while center Trayvon Reed and small forward Jared Nickens will play for the U.S. All-Stars. Joining Trimble and Wiley on the Capital All-Stars will be two Baltimore-area players, Villanova-bound Phil Booth Jr. (Mount St. Joseph)

Jared Nickens is used to being overlooked. As a high school player in central New Jersey, Nickens and his parents decided to have him reclassified as a junior in order to give him an extra season to get better offers to play college basketball. Now a senior at the Westtown School in West Chester, Pa., the 6-foot-6, 190-pound small forward doesn't get nearly the same attention as junior teammate Georgios Papagiannas, a 7-1 center from Greece. In Maryland's four-player 2014 recruiting class, Nickens is largely viewed by outsiders as an afterthought behind guards Melo Trimble and Dion Wiley and 7-1 center Trayvon Reed.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. How surprising is it that the Maryland basketball team found its way onto ESPN.com's latest NCAA bracket, and what do the Terps need to do to stay there? Don Markus: Truthfully, I had to check the date of Joe Lunardi's latest post -- twice. It was hard to imaging that Mark Turgeon's team had done anything to deserve even the 12th seed that it was given.

Mark Turgeon didn't watch the live ESPNU show in which Andrew and Aaron Harrison told the world last October that they would be attending Kentucky in 2013, rather than Maryland. The Terps coach didn't need to tune in to the broadcast to know what the  twin prodigies' verdict would be. He had been tipped off already by the players' father. At that point, the uber-competitive former Kansas point guard didn't want to have it rubbed in. He just wanted to move on. And move on Turgeon did. Recruiting comes first with Turgeon, who is extremely confident in his ability to evaluate talent and close deals.
