Every performance by jazz singer Rene Marie is an act of validation. Sixteen years ago, she faced an ultimatum from her then-husband - abandon music or get out. She chose the latter course, and went on to enjoy an international career. Her musical journey continues as Marie brings her Eartha Kitt tribute to Creative Alliance this weekend. Given her self-confidence and dynamic personality, Marie is a natural to delve into the legacy of the sexy, indelible Kitt. Although Marie can purr seductively through a song, she doesn't try to imitate Kitt.

VAL D'ISERE, France -- A big, broad-shouldered Austrian long shot won the men's downhill of the Winter Olympics yesterday, a fitting resolution to a day at the races that was nothing if not strange.The first of 56 skiers to come down a stunning and controversial course loaded with speed-killing turns, Patrick Ortlieb, a 24-year-old from Bregenz, finished five-hundredths of a second faster than France's Franck Piccard. Another Austrian, Guenther Mader, was third.AJ Kitt, considered the United States' best medal hope in any skiing event, finished ninth.

It's one race on one day but it could forever color the career of AJ Kitt, the American who would be king of the men's downhill.For nearly three years, now, Kitt has been among the skiing elite, attacking mountains and taking on the world's best in places like Val d'Isere, France and Kitzbuehl, Austria.He has won some World Cup medals. And had a few taken away under circumstances layered with intrigue and mystery.But this is his moment to race free and perhaps win the 1994 Winter Olympics men's downhill on a slope of ice and snow called Kvitfjell.

FRIGATE BAY, St. Kitts and Nevis -- Greenpeace activists went ashore yesterday in motorized rubber boats to plant cardboard tombstones on the beach in protest of the killing of nearly 2,000 whales a year despite a global ban on commercial whaling. St. Kitts police, armed with tear gas and machine guns, quickly arrested the 10 activists, although the protest was peaceful. The demonstration was aimed at spotlighting what Japan says is whaling for scientific research and the support that Tokyo has won from smaller countries here at the International Whaling Commission's annual meeting.

Jordon Kitt had always been a man who worked with his hands - as much for creative release as for income. He started by mastering a potter's wheel when he was 12 and grew up to work on a pottery production line in his early 20s; later he built wooden stairs for homes and offices. But in 1992, he was diagnosed with systemic lupus - a strain of the autoimmune disease that often leads to debilitating arthritis - and Kitt knew his tactile pursuits were in jeopardy. But five years ago, after the worst of the joint inflammation and pain had set in, he found an unlikely artistic outlet, one his fingers could handle: Kitt became a quilter.

Except for their inexplicable embrace of Jerry Lewis, the French can be counted on for extraordinarily refined tastes in the arts. French composers, for example, have for centuries produced work of exquisite craftsmanship and intrinsic beauty. There may be layers of darkness and trouble beneath the surface of the notes at times, but the angst, overwhelming tragedy or just plain bleakness that underlies a lot of German material is all but impossible to find. Three distinctive styles of French music, each with its own elegant approach to expression, were addressed by the American Chamber Players Saturday evening for the Candlelight Concerts series at Howard Community College in Columbia.

The shoe fits. Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote "Cinderella" for television, but the theatrical touring version now at the Mechanic Theatre suits this 1957 musical as perfectly as a dainty foot gliding into a custom-made glass slipper. The production - adapted for the stage by Tom Briggs and directed by Gabriel Barre - isn't just a charming diversion for the kids at holiday time, however. It's also got a dash of sass and sophistication, as well as a new theme about the Fairy Godmother's relationship to Cinderella, which contributes an added level of poignancy.
