WE WERE not alone. At least as recently as 13,000 years ago - yesterday in geologic time - we humans of the branch sapiens shared the planet with a little lady and her kin of the branch floresiensis. The discovery on the Indonesian island of Flores last fall of the 18,000-year-old remains of this little lady, let's call her Flo, and as many as seven of her contemporaries shook up the experts. It dents the lay person's sense of self as well. How? Try these: We are not so much beyond the biological sculptor that is evolution.

If there was a lesson to be learned at the mule pull and mule jump at the Howard County Fair, it was this: If a mule doesn't want to do something, it won't. In the dusty ring Saturday morning, farmers called mules, cajoled them and even tried to dizzy them by leading them in circles. Some farmers jumped up in the air to encourage the beasts to leap over a plastic bar; the mules paid them no mind. "Mules are a lot different than horses," said Mary Streaker, who, along with her husband, Howard, organized the mule pull at the fair for the past five years.

Baltimoreans recognize Flo Ayres as the woman who created the radio voice of Granny Packer decades ago. "I'm probably the grande dame of voice-overs," Ayres said the other day as she was on her way to meet with her Web site designers. "I have to have a project," she said. She is now in the promotion phase of the children's CD she recently completed. Called Do-Zees and Don't-Zees, it is the result of a four-year collaboration with Lon Ephraim, a musician and teacher. In song and dialogue, she tells her audience to put their toys away, eat good foods and don't give up on what you want to do. "We nitpicked and nitpicked and if I do say, the quality is superb," she says of the effort recorded in Washington, Baltimore and Catonsville studios.

AEGIS STAFF REPORT | April 22, 2013
The latest fitness craze, FloYo (stand-up paddleboard yoga) has come to the pool at Bel Air Athletic Club, in cooperation with Ultimate Watersports. FloYo is a fusion of yoga and Pilates; the class blends the fundamentals of each discipline while incorporating the added core challenge of balancing on a standup paddleboard (SUP). Both core and flexibility training are used to lengthen and strengthen the body. If you have mastered your downward facing dog and sun salutations on the mat, you will be pleasantly surprised by the challenge of trying these same poses on the unstable surface of a SUP. Because the poses are being performed on a moving surface, you will be engaging muscles that you would not normally, and because the poses have to be aligned just perfectly for even weight distribution on the boards, you will not only be benefiting from a challenging class but you will also be improving your in-studio yoga practice as well.

WASHINGTON -- They are linked forever by their gold medals and the Joyner name. The difference is, Florence Griffith Joyner represents track and field past, while Jackie Joyner-Kersee continues to define track and field present.Flo Jo, 31, was one of a kind -- those one-legged outfits, those nails! -- but she retired after winning three gold medals in the 1988 Olympics. JJK, 29, intends to compete in Barcelona this summer and Atlanta in 1996, winning the heptathlon and long jump over and over again.

Leona Helmsley, 87 Hotel's `queen of mean' Leona Helmsley, the hotelier who went to prison as a tax cheat and was reviled as the "queen of mean," died yesterday at age 87. Mrs. Helmsley died of heart failure at her summer home in Greenwich, Conn., said her publicist, Howard Rubenstein. Mrs. Helmsley and her husband, Harry, ran a $5 billion real estate empire that included managing the Empire State Building. She was tried in 1989 on tax-evasion charges in a trial that included testimony from employees who said she terrorized the help at her homes and hotels.

MY CAT has killed three mice in our apartment. More precisely, she arrested them; I did them in with my size 8 1/2 wide boat shoe. Flo, my cat, is not humane. Cat's aren't, though they are capable of human-like affection, as dogs are. This is according to my pretty good source on cats and dogs, whose identity will be revealed below. Flo wasn't finished with the mice when I came upon them, each time in the dining room. I'm not sure what caused me to dispatch them -- a desire to end their suffering or fear they might get away from her?

In William Inge's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Picnic, the Bay Theatre folks spread a veritable entertainment banquet of delights - a visionary director, polished performances, a minimalist set exuding backyard Americana, authentic 1950s-era costumes and nostalgic music. With this stunning production, which runs through March, Bay Theatre has reached yet another pinnacle of excellence. The company's fame has spread from its 275 West St. stage to New York City, where Picnic's director, Gia Forakis, knew of the work of Bay's founders Lucinda Merry-Browne and Janet Luby.

No one could have persuaded Flo Rivelis - normal, non-wacky Flo Rivelis - to cruise along in the zany Charles Village parade yesterday and draw attention to herself. So her family tricked her into it. Lured into a black convertible under the guise of driving to a good spot to watch the fun, Rivelis, 75, ended up near the front of the long line of beehive-wearing scooter riders, waving dog-walkers, tin-can musicians and others celebrating both city life and the momentary sense of stardom.

Kyneshi Jeter, 3, still turns the heads of fellow joggers at Montebello Park, even though they've seen her run 10 miles without stopping every other day for the past month. "That girl is going to the Olympics," states a woman dressed in a blue jogging suit. "I've never seen anything like it." The Montebello regulars have dubbed her "Baby Flo-Jo" after the late Olympic champion Florence Griffith Joyner. There are those who have watched her every other day for the past month run as though she is training for the Olympics.
