A life-sized stuffed Naval Academy mascot who's stood atop its owner's vehicles before many a football game, was stolen from a car parked at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis during Saturday's Navy-Indiana matchup. "It's almost like losing a pet," said owner Ronald Carlberg, Naval Academy Class of 1961 and a retired Air Force colonel. Carlberg, 73, recalled that his wife and daughter bought the white goat - dubbed 'Fearless' - several years ago, when it was part of a department store sweater sale display.

Robin Williams was one of the most original, daring and troubled comedians to ever work in television. When he first burst on the screen, you held your breath as you watched him dance out there on a manic tightrope of improvisation. But after a while, you stopped wondering how he did it and learned to just enjoy the high of seeing him soar. The 63-year-old comedian and actor was found dead Monday at his home in Tiburon, Calif., north of San Francisco. The cause of death is suspected to be suicide by asphyxiation, according to the Marin County coroner's office.

The scherzo of Shostakovich's Cello Sonata is as fearsome as music for that instrument gets. Within the raucous, drunken, dance-of-death confines of this movement, the cellist must play a series of eerie harmonics in which the left hand moves up and down the fingerboard at something like the speed of light, while the bow arm must move just as quickly, hitting the treacherously positioned notes with just the right amount of pressure.In her cello recital last night in Friedberg Hall, Sharon Robinson sounded as if she were not in the least intimidated by this passage.

Bellavance, an educator, social activist, and patron of the academic and arts communities who was also an outspoken advocate for the Eastern Shore's Hispanic community, died July 24 of cancer at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center in Richmond, Va.

NEW YORK -- Win or lose, her summer vacation ends at Louis Armstrong Stadium. It should always be this way for a 15-year-old tennis player who is still fresh and fearless.

She knocks off defending champions. She climbs up the rankings like a student skipping grades and heading straight to graduate school.

Disturbing, maddening, often confusing, but also charming, engaging and challenging in all the best ways - first-time writer-director Miranda July's Me and You and Everyone We Know is an absolutely fearless film that isn't afraid to push an audience's buttons. There's a lot to like here, perhaps just as much to dread, but a tremendous amount to admire. At its core the story of Christine (July), an insecure performance artist pursuing a tentative relationship with Richard (John Hawkes), a wary and emotionally stunted shoe salesman, Me and You is really about how people talk and relate to one another ... or don't.

The nominee as Public Service Commission chairman would be walking into a job where millions of dollars in corporate revenues, the pocketbooks of citizens across the state and the political interests of Maryland's most powerful leaders are affected by his every decision. It's a situation he knows well. Gov. Martin O'Malley's nominee for the job, Steven B. Larsen, made his reputation as a fearless regulator four years ago when as Maryland insurance commissioner he rejected the conversion of CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield to a for-profit company, a deal that he argued shortchanged consumers in favor of lavish executive bonuses.

"Fearless" is really a date with an angel.Certainly one of the most peculiar films to reach a mass audience through the sluice gate of the studio system in recent ** years, it's unabashedly religious, though in a circumspect way. In fact, it's so polite in its embrace of faith that if you don't pay attention, you may not see God's hand in anything.In the '30s there was no shame at all in invoking the celestial choir and the Big Guy himself to help out in dicey moments: a glissando of harps, a splurge of backlit clouds, a No. 9 filter on the arc lamps to give the actors the translucence of Rubens nudes, and -- bingo -- a movie miracle.

ROME -- She cornered ayatollahs and challenged dictators. She was glamorous, fearless and always provocative. Oriana Fallaci, Italian author and globe-trotting journalist whose interviews produced piercing portraits of world leaders for decades, but who in later years channeled her energies into bitter diatribes against Islam, died Friday, her publisher said. Miss Fallaci, who never married and had no children, was 77 and had been suffering from cancer. She died at a private hospital in Florence, where she had arrived recently from New York, aware that her health was failing, the RCS publishing group said in a statement.

Fleet-footed foxes streaking across lawns have become so commonplace throughout the Baltimore region that the brownish red predators fabled in literature and sport are no longer a remarkable sight in back yards, city parks and suburban developments.Once limited to the farm and woodland, the fearless fox trots across the path of a city taxicab on Belair Road, a light rail car approaching Baltimore-Washington International Airport or the gardens behind a Catonsville or Pikesville cul-de-sac.

After Brandy Norwood gave birth to her daughter, Sy'rai, 10 years ago, she was exhausted and ready to leave the entertainment world behind. "I was like, 'I'm good, y'all. I'm good on the music industry,' " Brandy said in a recent interview. "I didn't know who I was, but my daughter was a savior for me. " Motherhood may have eventually refocused her, but the music industry requires hit songs. Although she released two more albums after Sy'rai's birth (2004's "Afrodisiac" and 2008's "Human")

Whether it was beating Illinois and Duke when he was a sophomore or Connecticut in the East Regional final to keep his college career alive, Juan Dixon always had a flair for the dramatic, and the final three-pointer of his magnificent run at the University of Maryland went down as the biggest shot of the 2002 Final Four. There was no doubt that the senior from Calvert Hall would be named the Most Outstanding Player at the climax of the college basketball season, not after he cooled off a surging Indiana team with two clutch baskets that seemed to soften the hardened Hoosiers.

Kirk Franklin is singing "Jesus Walks," the Kanye West song that lampoons mainstream radio for shunning songs about Christianity. "But if I talk about God, my record won't get played, huh?" Franklin, who performs at the Modell Center at the Lyric on Saturday, raps. "Well let this take away from my spins ... So freaking dope. " The veteran contemporary gospel singer can relate to the song's frustration, but it doesn't get him down. Franklin says part of his aim is to change the current perception that Christians are the overzealous televangelists and ultra-conservative talking heads on TV. He calls them "weirdos.

Were it not for those Bel Air Bobcats getting their rear ends handed to them by New Town last week, I would have had my first perfect week of the season. It's getting desperate here, as I've only got a few more weeks left before the playoffs roll around. Hopefully my week-nine picks will be flawless. Here's how I see everything shaking out: Aberdeen at C. Milton Wright. The Eagles proved me right by winning the big game against Havre de Grace last week, and I don't see them having any trouble getting past the Mustangs.

These weeks with five or six wins and two or three losses are starting to agitate me, but, I'm a pro, so I'll forge ahead, confident that my keen football mind will soon deliver a perfect round of picks. Last week, Harford Tech and Edgewood tripped me up, though I'm used to the former giving me trouble. I tell you, over the last three or four seasons, Harford Tech has caused me more trouble than any team in the county. In any case, here's what I see brewing in week-five action: North Harford at Aberdeen.

The mood is indigo, and it stays that way throughout her album. But newcomer Keri Noble insists that she's more spirited than her music may project. She's just keeping it real -- pure, unvarnished, emotionally naked -- on her aptly titled debut, Fearless. "A lot of times, you're much more inspired when you're not happy or sunshiney," says the singer-songwriter, who's calling from a promotional stop in Florida. "But what's most important is that the record is honest. I think maybe when you're happy, you don't stop to think about it or write about it, I guess."

Once again, your favorite pigskin prognosticator was thwarted by a few bum picks and wound up just short of a perfect record in week three. Tonight's games aren't any easier to figure out, but I'm going for the clean sheet, as always. Here we go: Aberdeen at Joppatowne. Wow, this one should be good. There's five unbeaten football teams in the UCBAC and two of them will meet on the Mariners home field tonight. I'm going with the Eagles high-powered offense to come out on top of this one. The pick: Aberdeen wins, 34-30.

Well, 6-2 is not a bad way to start the year. A perfect week would have been a big feather in the cap for this fabulous football mind, but I'll take it. Here's what we've got cooking in week-two action this evening (Friday), and what I have to say about it: Bo Manor at Aberdeen. I left my cave on the shore of the Susquehanna last Friday night just to watch the Aberdeen squad play its first game under longtime River City skipper Johnny Brooks, and I must say, the Eagles were impressive.
