For Mark Bowden, writing a book about the 1958 pro football championship game between the Baltimore Colts and New York Giants was a return to his roots. Bowden made his name writing prize-winning articles for The Philadelphia Inquirer and best-selling books such as Black Hawk Down, his reconstruction of a disastrous U.S. military raid in Somalia, and Killing Pablo, his chronicle of the manhunt for Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. But before all that came Baltimore. Bowden was 13 when his family moved to town in the mid-1960s.

If Tanya Fermin hadn't been stood up and Brandon Jones hadn't taken a job that left him no time to meet women, both might still be single, wondering if their prince (or princess) was ever going to come.Back in February 1996, Brandon, a customer-service representative for Zurich Personal Insurance in Timonium, was working an 11 a.m.-to-8 p.m. schedule that often went into overtime. "Most of the people I work with are either married or far beyond my age," he says. So there was no hope his job would lead him to the woman of his dreams.

Even classical music aficionados hear Peter Schickele's name and automatically think of a hilariously clever comedian responsible for unleashing the music of the infamous P.D.Q. Bach on an unsuspecting world.But while the world's funniest musicologist has won fame via laughter in P.D.Q.'s immortal works such as "Iphigenia in Brooklyn," the "Pervertimento for Bagpipes, Bicycle and Balloons," and the semi-lovely "Shleptet in E-flat," most of his music is no laughing matter.Indeed, Schickele is a serious composer as a Candlelight Concert audience will find out Saturday evening at 8 when the composer takes the Smith Theatre stage to perform with the Lark String Quartet.

The aisles of Bass Expo at the Cow Palace in Timonium Friday afternoon were filled with fishermen testing the latest and best in tackle, related equipment and boats. At the back of the building on the state fairgrounds, Jim Lark was testing the waters to see how well his own idea would float.Lark is president of a fledgling nonprofit organization named Fun Fishing Without Barriers, Inc. And amid the fishing pros, rows of vendors and the crowds of recreational fishermen, his group's project is unusual -- to provide recreational pond fishing for the physically disabled.

WHEN BALTIMORE County Detective Ed Spragg came into work yesterday morning, his computer had already been set to display the photo - the one in which he's lying on his back on a tennis court with a 700-pound bison looming over him. "Twenty-five years on the force, and this is what I'll be remembered for," he said, unharmed in the encounter but quickly up to his neck in ribbing. Actually, it was nice to see Baltimore make the front pages worldwide for something other than homicides, drugs or other urban ills.

A walk along West Centre Street might provide the usual downtown stimulus these days - the whooshing noise of traffic, the sight of pedestrians coming and going - but head east across Cathedral, and you're liable to feel, for a moment, as if you've stepped off the curb into quite another realm. A sense of space and emptiness, an odd calm, beckons the eye upward. High above the street, anchored to a blank wall, a vinyl mural - 24 feet high, 36 feet across, bolted in place to minimize flapping in the wind - depicts, across a simple field of gray and white, a single, open hand.
