Ann Bianco Alexander, a Baltimore actress whose successful struggle to overcome lymphoma nearly a decade ago allowed her to return to the stage, died of pneumonia Monday at University of Maryland Medical Center. She was 47 and lived in Ellicott City. She was born Ann Marie Bianco in Baltimore and raised in Catonsville. Her interest in singing and performing began in her childhood when she and her siblings put on backyard shows and used a tape recorder to script imaginary radio shows. By the age of 12, she was taking voice lessons, and during her high school years, she regularly appeared in drama club productions at Woodlawn High School.

Will Adams, freshman basketball player at Towson University, could be mad at the world about all the misfortune life dumped at his Philadelphia doorstep. There was the woman, his birth mother, who abandoned him to a series of foster homes at 3. There was the hit-and-run driver, racing through a yellow light, who dragged him and his bike a full city block, leaving Adams with compound fractures in both legs at 9. There was the cancer that ate away at his athlete's body for months before anyone knew, devouring his basketball dream when he was 18. It was as if he had a personal curse writing the storyline of his life.

Gary Jobson is having a "good day," his first really good day in a long time. The sailing celebrity - America's Cup winner, ESPN commentator and producer - walks swiftly around downtown Annapolis on an afternoon as bright and sunny as his mood. He talks eagerly about the book he's writing about racing. And, he jokes about his thin, wispy tufts of white hair, telling a guest he's sporting "the hatched-chicken look," the result of chemotherapy. For the last few months, the sailing world has been without its mainstay as Jobson, one of the nation's most recognizable sailors, has canceled appearances around the country for the first time in years.
