(Nov. 21), readers should know that John Henry is a world renowned, award-winning sculptor and that Baltimore is incredibly fortunate that he has chosen our city to place one of his magnificent tower sculptures. The reader from Eldersburg (Eldersburg?), who does not even live in Baltimore, may not know this or his work in general. One has to wonder how often she will pass by Westport after John Henry's sculpture is erected and added to our growing art culture so symbolized by the Walters and the Baltimore Museum of Art .

Ron McAnally is much like the famous horse he once trained. Neither he nor John Henry would be considered the retiring types. John Henry raced effectively through his ninth year, 1984. That was unheard of even back then and unthinkable now. He was horse of the year at 9. McAnally will turn 80 in July and probably will celebrate by mucking out a stall. "It's my life, my whole life," McAnally says. "I can't get it out of my blood. " He's at the track every morning at 5:30.

Paris has the Eiffel Tower. St. Louis has the Gateway Arch. And Baltimore could soon have a monumental work of art if developer Pat Turner is successful in his quest to place a 236-foot-tall illuminated metal sculpture on the Middle Branch waterfront as a focal point of his $1.5 billion Westport development. During a meeting of Baltimore's Public Art Commission on Wednesday, Turner unveiled plans showing how the untitled sculpture, by Tennessee artist John Henry, would be placed within a traffic circle on one of the major roads planned for the Westport development.

John Henry Fischer, who as superintendent of city schools implemented the historic 1954 Brown v. the Board of Education decision without civil disruption and later became president of Teachers College at Columbia University in New York City, died of congestive heart failure Dec. 18 at his home in Westwood, Mass. He was 99. In a 25th anniversary article on the Brown case published in The Baltimore Sun, Dr. Fischer explained how Baltimore desegregated its schools with little trouble, and pointed to the fact that the city had begun to "reduce certain forms of segregation" well before 1954.

"The American people are responding with great emotion and with great pride in our system that we have seen this latest step in reconciliation with respect to our race relations. ... We have not completely reconciled within my society, with my country. But what Mr. Obama represents is the best of America." Former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell "I think that he helped to touch the core of what our ancestors had been struggling with for the last 200 years. So all of those unknown people who have struggled through slavery, through segregation and through adversity based on our race and not on our intelligence and our minds, that he now sets a new tone for people to look beyond race in moving this country forward."

When Better Talk Now walks through his Fair Hill Training Center barn, no one has any doubts about who he thinks he is. "He thinks he's the king," owner Brent Johnson said with a laugh. "He knows he's accomplished something. They walk him and he stops at every stall to take a bite of every other horse's hay like he owns the place. ... He simply exudes a confidence that says he is somebody." Better Talk Now is horse racing's version of the Energizer Bunny. At age 9, he's still going strong.
