Whether she's sporting face paint, a mask or a bright purple wig, Jean Keister loves to prove her passion for the Ravens. "I try to wear something different to every single game," said Keister, who inherited her enthusiasm for football from her father. "I started off as a Colts fan, then they left Baltimore and I was not a fan of any team until we got the Ravens," said Keister, who is 46 and lives in Stevensville. "I pretty much stopped watching football during that time. " Her husband, John, is a Steelers fan, but Keister said that's no problem for her. "We got married before the Ravens were in town," Keister said.

John and Darlene Keister of Woodbine opened an indoor sports center in Howard County because they were tired of driving their daughter, Candace, to Westminster for soccer practice. "That's a long drive when it's bad weather," Darlene Keister said. Candace, 11, had been playing soccer in a local Recreation and Parks program. When the fall season ended, several of the girls wanted to continue playing through the winter months.

A MEMORABLE PLACE The view from on high By Lauren Keister SPECIAL TO THE SUN The climb to the top of Mount Burwell took an hour and a half. Quads and calves burning, my breath coming in short gasps, I finally arrived at the summit of this 12,313-foot peak in the midst of Wyoming's rugged Absaroka Mountains. Far in the distance, the Wind River range stretched out purple and hazy across the horizon. The wind became more fierce the higher I climbed, and it whipped though my four layers of clothing as though they didn't exist.
