Kickers Billy Cundiff and Justin Tucker are not only on opposite ends of the spectrums in their careers, but their paths with the Ravens appear headed in different directions, too. In perhaps an indication of rising sentiment within the organization, Tucker, an undrafted rookie - not Cundiff, the incumbent - played the entire 48-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday night. Tucker made all six extra points and both of his field-goal attempts, connecting on a 33-yarder in the first quarter and a 53-yarder in the second.

You may find yourself wanting to make travel plans after seeing "Nature Visions" at the Meeting House Gallery. Organized by the Mid-Atlantic Photography Association, this group exhibit features beautiful landscapes, wild animals posing for close-up portraits, and other photogenic examples of natural abundance. One of the most imposing wilderness views can be seen in Louise McLaughlin's "Spirit Island. " Shot in the Canadian Rockies, this photo offers a panoramic view of soaring conifer trees beside a lake whose waters are so still that you're prompted to silently linger over this scene.

Now, let's not get carried away and suggest that the Terps play all their games at the Arena. There were those empty seats in the corners of the upper deck, which wouldn't have been empty at Cole Field House. Oh, and that vague burning smell that hung in the air for a while early in the first half.Ah, but it was still a fine night, wasn't it? Almost a perfect night, in fact. The burning smell disappeared. The scoreboard worked. Yes, for the entire game. The house lights didn't go black. The near-sellout crowd stirred up quite a racket, and not about the high ticket prices.

Question: What do tonight's prime-time TV schedule and a nudist have in common? And here's the answer: There's nothing * "Swiss Family Robinson." (8-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- It doesn't matter that this Walt Disney live-action film is, sigh, 35 years old now, or that John Mills and Dorothy McGuire act about as Swiss as June and Ward Cleaver. What counts is that this story was, and remains, a perfect fantasy for children: An island paradise where they get to play with animals on a free-range zoo, fight with pirates using all manner of handmade weaponry, attend "school" in the open air, and, best of all, live in the world's biggest, coolest tree house.

Ursula Oppens' piano recital at Shriver Hall Saturday night was a wonderful combination of illuminating performances. She played a Beethoven sonata from his middle and late periods, and four gems by living Americans.Her most brilliant stroke may have been eliminating the Beethoven "Opus 14, No. 1 Sonata" from the program. This made the evening perfectly balanced and avoided a marathon recital.In the first work, the "Sonata in F major, Opus 54," Oppens gave the music a wonderful unification of simplicity and complexity.

The Orioles have the fourth pick in Monday night’s MLB amateur draft, but it’s unclear who they will end up selecting. The Pirates will reportedly take UCLA pitcher Gerrit Cole first overall and the Mariners have been linked to Rice third baseman Anthony Rendon at No. 2. After those first two picks, all bets are off. Chances are the Orioles will take a pitcher, but which one depends on how the draft dominoes tumble . "Nothing has...

They know how to throw a homecoming party at Southern. First, pack the house and hold a festive homecoming ceremony at halftime citing outstanding students. Then, watch the football team earn an overtime victory over a ranked team. Southern did all of that Friday night, capping the evening with a 36-34 triumph over No. 11 Arundel (4-2). A.J. Lee, all 5 feet 6 and 145 pounds of him, stole the spotlight by running for 190 yards and two touchdowns, including the winner and the subsequent two-point conversion run. In overtime, Lee and the Bulldogs put the pressure on the Wildcats, who had rallied behind quarterback Bobby Schram to force the extra session.
