A 44-year-old fighter sat on top of a cage with his arms in the air and a smile on his face. Moments earlier, he was looking down at his opponent, who had fallen limp to the ground after taking a punch straight to the head. James "Binky" Jones had to make sure that Biff Walizer, his opponent that October 2013 day in Shogun Fights IX, was done for good. He stared for a couple more seconds, then threw his arms up and ran to climb the cage and flex for his fans. "The Lord has blessed me, man," Jones, of Baltimore, said Thursday.

Daniel Taradash, 90, who won an Oscar for his screenplay adaptation of James Jones' best-selling novel From Here to Eternity, died of cancer Feb. 22 at a Los Angeles hospital. Best known for adapting sprawling novels and Broadway plays, Taradash's screenwriting credits include writing or co-writing adaptations of Clifford Odets' Golden Boy, William Inge's Picnic and James Michener's Hawaii. But From Here to Eternity, the 1953 film version of Jones' novel about Army life in Hawaii during the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, was the one movie for which Taradash said he received the most compliments.

With the exception of about seven seconds, the Coppin State men's basketball team played remarkable second-half defense against South Carolina State last night, holding the Bulldogs to 28 percent shooting. Unfortunately for the Eagles, those seven seconds were all it took for Mike Wiatre to drive the length of the court for a layup with four seconds left, lifting South Carolina State to a 60-59 victory at the Coppin Center. In addition to keeping the Bulldogs alone in first place in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, the win also avenged a 15-point defeat to the Eagles on Dec. 4. "We didn't come to play and they did," South Carolina State forward James Jones said, remembering the first game.

DURHAM, N.C. - James Earl Jones' commanding bass is so recognizable, even a hermit could place it immediately. It's Mufasa, the papa lion in Disney's hit The Lion King, it's Darth Vader in Star Wars. It has an air of compassion, of wisdom and omnipotence. And yet this Hollywood star spent the better part of his childhood with his mouth closed, plagued by a severe stutter. "It was so bad that I didn't speak at all," Jones, 74, told 200 students at a literacy celebration this week in Durham.

Say On Golden Pond, and you probably hear the sound of loons on a lake. But in the production at Washington's Kennedy Center, it's the telephone that grabs your attention. That's because this new revival stars James Earl Jones, the voice of Verizon, whose first line on stage happens to be: "The phone works!" Of course, Ernest Thompson's play isn't about telephones or loons. It's about family. Specifically, it's about the family of a retired English professor, his wife and their grown and estranged daughter.
