Herbert "Hunky" Matz, a Baltimore lawyer known for his warmth and wit, died Wednesday in his sleep. He turned 100 years old in January. Relatives say his upbeat demeanor won him friends and admirers and surely contributed to his longevity. They say he was proud to be a Baltimore man, having been born and raised near Patterson Park along with nine siblings. He graduated from Baltimore City College, where he was captain of the basketball team and later inducted into the Hall of Fame and invited to be graduation speaker.

Despite a federal judge's order that the Carroll County commissioners stop praying to Jesus at their meetings, Commissioner Robin Bartlett Frazier reached into history and summoned George Washington to aid her cause last week. "I beseech thee, for the sake of him in whom thou art well pleased, the Lord Jesus Christ, to admit me to render thee deserved thanks and praises for thy manifold mercies extended toward me," Frazier intoned, saying the words were once offered to God by Washington.

COLLEGE PARK -- With four minutes left in Saturday's Class 3A state title game, the City boys basketball team was beating Westlake by two points with its perfect season on the line. Coming out of a timeout, coach Daryl Wade sent out a small lineup, spread the floor and told his group to be patient. Mostly swinging the ball around the perimeter, the Knights' next two possessions ate up a good chunk of the remaining clock before senior guard Kamau Stokes found an easy path to the basket for two more points with 1:41 to play.

Police believe the father of an 11-year-old girl abducted her from the Dundalk home where her mother was found dead Thursday morning. On Friday police had obtained an arrest warrant for 38-year-old Timothy Howard Virts in connection with the death of Bobbie Jo Cortez. The Amber Alert issued Thursday for their daughter, Caitlyn Marie Virts, remains active on billboards throughout the region and told motorists to be on the lookout for a black SUV. Investigators believe the girl is with her father.

The game was over for everyone, except Rodney Elliott Jr. His team down by 20 points with time quickly evaporating, Elliott Jr. came off the bench determined. He brought the crowd to its feet, sinking eight consecutive 3-pointers and sending his team home with an improbable victory, much the same way his father used to do for Gary Williams at Maryland in the late 1990s. Except this game wasn't played in College Park. It was in 2002 at a youth development center in East Baltimore, and Elliott Jr. was just 7 years old. "I just started crying on the bench for no reason," Elliott Jr. recalled.

When the father-and-son team of Michael Vaters Jr. and Sr. go out for a ride together, people notice. That's what happens when what you're riding is a six-ton Monster Jam truck, complete with 60-inch tires and a steel cage where the driver's seat should be - a truck that seems to divide its time equally between being airborne and smashing other cars and trucks beneath its tonnage. This weekend at the Baltimore Arena, the Vaterses will be joining about a half-dozen of their Monster Jam brethren for the sort of rip-snorting good time that can be realized only when massive machines go flying through the air, groaning and snorting in a sort of Transformers-like scenario.

By now you probably know that comedian Sid Caesar died today at the age of 91. But judging by the paper-thin pieces I have been seeing on the web this afternoon, I am guessing many readers might not understand how seminal he was to the history of television and sketch comedy. Caesar deserves some cultural context and honor for the fearless and pioneering figure he was. Live television burned him up within a decade, leaving behind a guy addicted to amphetamines, downers and alcohol.
