PHILADELPHIA -- He was an oak, and she was a willow.He plants himself in front of the net on the hockey rink, tall and strong and unyielding, and defensemen pry and prod and poke at him. But that is like trying to uproot a stump that has been in the ground a long, long time. Tim Kerr will not be budged. They slash and whack at him -- men with no teeth and mean intentions -- but they cannot move him.Naturally, then, when bulldozers are used in vain, when dynamite won't work, what is called for is a woman.

Imagine a tree so mighty that the federal government built its interstate highway system around it. Now more than 300 years old, the 68-foot-high Arbutus Oak sits amid a ribbon of highways -- southbound Interstate 95 and the outer loop of the Baltimore Beltway. For the past 30 years, folks from Arbutus, the tiny blue-collar town in southwest Baltimore County, have made their way to the grassy knoll, where the giant white oak sits next to an off ramp, to pull weeds and clip branches. "It's something that they thought was nice enough to keep, so much so that they built I-95 and [Interstate]

Three nautical miles from downtown Annapolis but seeming worlds away is the private peninsula where Mill and Burley creeks meet the Chesapeake Bay - and where 2077 Maidstone Farm Road, a nine-acre estate with 2,000 feet of waterfront, awaits its new owner. A Tudor-style home built of stucco in 1916 harks back to an era of elegant living. Touches of period craftsmanship outside and inside were provided by Italian artisans commissioned by the home's owner and builder, James Bowdoin, great-grandson of the founder of Bowdoin College in Maine.

The huge white oak, towering over the sycamores, poplars and dogwoods around it, is bent in the middle, like a spindly old man reaching for a drink of water. The tree, known as the Wilmer Stone Oak and about 200 years old, did not always look like that. In 1988, burdened by its own weight, half of the tree's Y-shaped structure split from the trunk and crashed to the ground, ending forever the symmetrical beauty that had supported the huge crown under a robust pair of legs. Even in its wounded state, though, the tree's physique remains magnificent, its 128-foot height undiminished by age or the elements.

A cherished 150-year-old oak tree that toppled in one of Baltimore's greenest neighborhoods has touched off worries that Roland Park's aging tree population might be starting to wither. It's been three weeks since the 120-foot oak tree rocked and fell in the Goldsmith family's back garden, but the impact is still being talked about, with a handful of neighborhood residents wondering whether more of Roland Park's oldest trees could soon end up the same way. "Everyone's very concerned," said Leslie Goldsmith.

In a clearing off of a wooded lane in Stevenson is a white stucco, Tuscan-style villa with ornate cast-iron window boxes spilling summer vines, looking like the subject of an impressionist painting. Inside, beyond the driveway and the arched, two-story center bay, the Iliev family - Martin and Jessica, their 3-year old son, Max, and a pair of toy poodles, Sophie and Tiger - welcome visitors to their newly built home. In a large, open kitchen dominated by a center island that's topped with a 9-by-6-foot slab of white quartz, the Ilievs recalled purchasing the 4-acre parcel of land.

For Wye Oak to continue as one of Baltimore's most well-established indie-rock acts, change was necessary. Sometime after the 2011 album "Civilian," singer Jenn Wasner began viewing the guitar - her instrument since she formed the duo in 2006 with drummer Andy Stack - as a liability. Before then, Wye Oak's clever songwriting and dramatic rock sound had propelled the group from the city's DIY music scene to success on a national scale that included song placements on popular TV shows and a live performance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

When driving down Baltimore National Pike in Ellicott City, it's easy for eyes to wander. The myriad restaurants and shops all fight for attention with colorful signs and promises of limited-time deals. It's enough to give you a headache. But tucked away in the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center - behind the defunct theme park, around the corner from a grocery store and out of view from the pike - is a bar and restaurant that is clearly interested in providing an experience not typically expected at a strip mall.

Like the song says, sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. For many Glenelg locals, that place seems to be Ten Oaks Tavern, in the Ten Oaks Shopping Center - and it's easy to understand why. Despite somewhat uneven food and a few service lags, the atmosphere at Ten Oaks is cheery, with the vibe of a family-friendly house party. Scene & Decor On a recent Thursday night, just before seven, Ten Oaks Tavern was packed. Both the bar and dining room are on the small side, warm and outfitted with comfortably familiar Irish-themed artwork.

LOUISVILLE, KY. -- Heavy favorite Untapable blazed to victory in the Kentucky Oaks Friday, a triumph for jockey Rosie Napravnik and controversial trainer Steve Asmussen . Napravnik kept Untapable a few paces off the lead for much of the run, then pulled away to win by 41/2 lengths. The performance didn't quite match Rachel Alexandra's 20-length win in 2009, but the even-money favorite lived up to high expectations. "She is magnificent," said Napravnik, who was plenty good herself in winning a second Oaks.

The Kentucky Derby is the main event, but it's possible the week's dominant star turn could come in Friday's Kentucky Oaks. Untapable is an overwhelming 4-5 favorite in the $600,000 stakes for fillies, and the question around Churchill Downs hasn't been if she'll win but by how much. Her trainer, Steve Asmussen, has been here before. In 2009, he watched his filly, Rachel Alexandra, burst onto the national scene with a 20-length victory in the Oaks. Two weeks later, she beat the boys in the Preakness on her way to Horse of the Year honors.
