Saturday's groundbreaking for the county's $18 million James and Anne Robinson Nature Center on Cedar Lane marks the start of work on County Executive Ken Ulman's much-anticipated environmental jewel, but there's an unhappy family drama behind the celebrations. The center will be the first of its kind in the county, and not only a state-of-the-art display of the best in green technology, but a place that Ulman hopes will help inculcate environmental and energy-saving values into thousands of county schoolchildren for years to come.

Le'Ron McClain registered his first career touchdown when he made a 13-yard catch against the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 25. But if the rookie fullback weren't playing football, his career path might have taken a different turn. You were a human environmental sciences major at Alabama. What is that? It's like consumer sciences, stuff like pharmaceutical sales and computer stuff. I liked working with computers and all that. I'd love to work at the Apple store. Who is your biggest inspiration?

Saturday night, the Maryland Port Administration held a private shindig aboard the schooner. "We take it for granted that we get to see ships in the water," says port commissioner Tom Koch, "but in the Midwest, they find a topsail schooner pretty exciting. They referred to it in the paper as a 'tall ship.

The King and I" may not seem a likely story for animation, and turning the king into a damsel-saving superhero may strike some moviegoers as blasphemy, but producer James G. Robinson isn't all that concerned.For the film executive, whose Baltimore-based Morgan Creek Productions has been putting out films since 1988, has a certain audience in mind. And if you've moved beyond middle school, you're not it."While we stay with the heart of the story, this film has been designed for basically children," Robinson says during an interview in Morgan Creek's Baltimore office.

What a week to hobnob in Baltimore. It's not often that in one week I have lunch or dinner in the company of Jay Leno, Bob Costas, Tim Russert, James Robinson, Cardinal William H. Keeler, Cal Ripken Jr., Art Donovan, Ned Beatty, Tom Clancy, and I could go on and on.The festivities began Tuesday evening, when WBAL-TV put on quite a show in the Hyatt ballroom. As most of you know, on Jan. 2, Baltimore's three major television stations change affiliations -- NBC moves to WBAL-TV; ABC moves to WMAR-TV and CBS moves to WJZ-TV.
