At 6 feet 8, 235 pounds, Andrew Fitzgerald is arguably the most recognizable big man on Oklahoma's campus. He goes to Sooners football games and “every other sporting event” on campus that he can. He is an Academic All-Big 12 honoree with a 3.3 GPA majoring in leadership and administration with a minor in history. And on the basketball court, Fitzgerald, a senior power forward, is one of Oklahoma's steadiest performers. In Norman, Fitzgerald found what he was searching for during a high school career that spanned four high schools in four years: stability.

The perennial jokes about California being sloughed off into the Pacific when the next big earthquake strikes may soon give way to laugh lines about Oklahoma shaking, quaking and sinking into the earth. A place once known for rodeos, tornados and dust storms where earthquakes used to be rare, Oklahoma now tops all 50 states in the number of tremors per year. This sudden, startling rise in the incidence of earthquakes would seem mystifying if not for the explanation scientists have come up with.

A tornado of epic proportions hit Oklahoma, which claims to have the finest weather forecasting in the nation specifically because of the tornado threat ("Tornado in Oklahoma leaves dozens dead," May 21). These forecasters note when tornadoes are imminent and attempt to save lives through warning. The day after the first tornado hit, and when all the conditions for more tornadoes remained a danger, the children were sent to school like always. Compare this to how Maryland shuts down the state merely on the rumor of snow.

A University of Maryland, Baltimore official resigned Thursday amid inquiries into allegations that he defrauded an Oklahoma university of more than $1 million in a previous job and diverted the money to businesses from which he financially benefited. Daniel Webster Keogh joined UMB in April as a director in the New Ventures program, which focuses on technology and research initiatives. His hiring came about one year after Oklahoma State University filed a lawsuit against him, alleging that he and his company lost $1.675 million paid by the university-owned research company OSU-Multispectral Laboratories.

When Oklahoma offered Charles Tapper a football scholarship in 2011, the City star had played just one season of organized football. On Thursday night, Tapper helped his Sooner teammates beat No. 3 Alabama, 45-31, in the Sugar Bowl. The sophomore made two tackles in No. 11 Oklahoma's win. Tapper, who starred on the basketball court for the Knights and Nike Baltimore Elite before exploding on the gridiron as a tight end and defensive end for George Petrides, was lured to Norman, Okla., by defensive assistant coach Bobby Wright.

For 60 years, Arena Stage has played a substantial role in Washington's cultural life. That role is sure to be bigger than ever after a multi-year, $135 million renovation that provides the nationally respected nonprofit theater with a greatly enhanced facility down by the Potomac. The transformation, designed by Canadian architect Bing Thom, is quite the eye-catcher. The original 1960s-era theaters have been gently tweaked, and a small studio space had been added. The entire complex — now officially designated Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater (named for major donors)

I have nothing to say about the murder of Christopher Lane. Except this: The killing of this Australian man, allegedly by a group of boys who were bored and could think of nothing better to do, suggests chilling amorality and a sociopathic estrangement from the sacredness of life. The fact that these teenagers were able to get their hands on a gun with which to shoot the 22-year-old student in the back on Aug. 16 as he was jogging in the small Oklahoma town of Duncan leaves me embarrassed for my country -- and thankful I am not the one who has to explain to his country how such a thing can happen.

L ive Arts Maryland delivered with gusto last weekend two performances of "Oklahoma!" that were undamaged by the delay caused by winter storms. Richard Rodgers' music and Oscar Hammerstein's poetic lyrics remain fresh and undimmed by time, gaining additional luster under the direction of J. Ernest Green. The show also featured the Annapolis Chorale, Annapolis Chamber Orchestra, nine stellar soloists, the Annapolis Youth Chorus, and a bright dance troupe from Stage Workz. "Oklahoma!"

A Baltimore man who had been a fugitive for 33 years after escaping from the state's prison system turned himself in to authorities in Oklahoma this week. Anthony Rackley, 62, is being held in the Oklahoma City jail and will likely be extradited to Maryland, a spokesman for that city's police department said Saturday. Rackley was arrested Monday after he told police he was being extorted by someone who knew about his escape, according to a report in The Oklahoman newspaper. The Oklahoma City police spokesman said Saturday that the information released by the department to the newspaper was not available.

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you got your Phil fix over the summer by watching him recreate the 1928 Tour de France on a vintage bicycle. The man does not stop. His calves do not stop. Anyway, back to the race. It opens in an Old West movie ranch and the teams arrive by stagecoach. Let's meet them. Ally and Ashley are L.A. Kings Ice Crew Girls and friends. This means that, during hockey games, they wear tiny shirts and scrape ice off of the arena; they also pose for posters.

Despite not allowing an earned run, Maryland split its two games Tuesday to start this year's Heartland Classic baseball tournament in Norman, Okla. Tayler Stiles (Bishop McNamara) set a tournament record for strikeouts in a seven-inning game with 16 as Maryland defeated Georgia, 3-0, to rebound from an earlier 3-2 loss to host Oklahoma. Stiles, who will play at Maryland next season, allowed two hits and walked two batters in the complete-game victory. The state's high school all-star team rallied to tie its first game Tuesday in the top of the seventh inning, but Oklahoma scored its third unearned run of the game in the bottom of the frame for a one-run victory.
