One of the terrifically dramatic subplots of the NFL draft is the now-famous "Green Room." That's where the NFL invites the five or six college players most likely to be taken high in the first round to gather and wait for their names to be called so each can stride to the podium, smile for TV and hold his new team's jersey across his chest. There's lots of genuine jubilation as the players selected earliest in the draft can virtually start counting the cash, and sometimes there's a heartwarming moment - Maryland tight end Vernon Davis, for instance, bursting into joyful tears when the San Francisco 49ers made him the No. 6 overall pick two years ago. But more recently, the Green Room has also been a torture chamber for some high-profile players who unexpectedly waited and waited, hour after hour, for their turn, like the short, pudgy kid in a schoolyard game of pickup football.

Kate Parker was skeptical during a 2006 triannual pool tournament at Dundalk's Green Room Billiards club, and with good reason. "I've got a feeling we're going to Vegas," she remembered one of her teammates saying. And despite the banner adorning the lobby - "This way to Vegas" - Parker still had her doubts. "We had a shot at Vegas and we lost," she said. "So we went into the losers' bracket; we had a shot at Vegas and we lost. " Even after the two defeats, Parker and her team turned things around, going on an unlikely run. And through a combination of luck, skill and quirks in the rules, the Elkridge resident's team was off to Las Vegas for the American Poolplayers Association National Team Championship with a wild-card bid. And come Friday, and running over the course of two weekends, more than 100 teams will be competing for the same honor at Maryland's APA spring program tournament.

Art is often more about questions than answers. That point is driven home by the Sondheim Artscape Prize: 2012 Finalists exhibit at the Baltimore Museum of Art , co-presented by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts. The six artists vying for the $30,000 Janet and Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize have in common an ability to provoke. Intriguing spins on familiar sights and common objects ask the viewer to ponder perspective and meaning; in one of the rooms is a hypnotic journey into the past that raises still more questions.

Q: I am going to redecorate my living and dining room, and I'd like to change my style from casual country to something more sophisticated. Any usable ideas from the latest royal house to open to the public, or is it all too grand for commoners? Thanks.A: With home decorating the boom area in home sewing in the United States, perhaps the opening of Buckingham Palace will provide some trends, and the grand royal style of decorating will find its way "across the pond" to "the Colonies." The excitement of this first peek by tourists has piqued everyone's interest.

Visitors to the new Fairfield Inn & Suites in Baltimore may not realize that many of the design materials are recycled or that the staff is wearing uniforms made from old plastic bottles. But there are some other more obvious elements making the hotel a bona fide green building. There is the giant rain barrel, once used by the former beer brewery owner to store grain, that collects roof water runoff in the courtyard. There are the mountain bikes available in some rooms and dual-flush toilets.

Ninety years after the discovery of a vein of green marble brought fame to the small northern Harford County town of Cardiff, the stone still commands a loyal - but dwindling - following. The once-common marble that earned a place in American architectural history by gracing the interiors of national landmarks like the White House and New York's Empire State Building has not been quarried since 1982. Many people living in Harford County today aren't even familiar with the stone. But to admirers like Sam Jones of Forest Hill, there will always be a special place in their hearts - and homes - for what locals will always call "the green stone."
