Alice C. Steinbach, the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for The Baltimore Sun, whose work captured the wonder and grace of people and places around the world, died Tuesday of cancer at her Roland Park Place home. She was 78. In her more than two-decade career with The Baltimore Sun, Ms. Steinbach took readers into close communion with her detailed profiles of the rich and famous from the world of entertainment, literature, politics, society and the arts. In a later career as a travel writer, her work took readers on strolls through places like the colorful back streets of Paris' Left Bank or, as she wrote, "the impossibly crowded Uffizi art gallery" in Florence.

Growing up on the Eastern Shore afforded Alex Stinton plenty to describe. The subjects surrounded him: the sounds, the wildlife, the water. The boy who grew up reading in the bayfront community of Wittman, and later dug into William Wordsworth, has parlayed his skill for prose into the nation's largest undergraduate literary prize. Stinton, a senior studying English and creative writing at Washington College, took home $61,382 as the winner of the Sophie Kerr Prize during a ceremony Tuesday night at the Enoch Pratt Free Library . Jurors noted Stinton's knowledge of classical works, which was prevalent in his poetry.

Richard Ben Cramer, a former Baltimore Sun reporter who later became a Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent for The Philadelphia Inquirer and an acclaimed author chronicling the lives of politicians and legendary sports figures, died Monday of lung cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Mr. Cramer, who was 62, lived in Chestertown. "Richard's work as a gifted writer and deeply principled journalist made our Republic a better place; made us a stronger, more compassionate, and more understanding people," Gov. Martin J. O'Malley, a friend, said in a statement released Tuesday.

In a career filled with wonderful performances, Julianne Moore gives what may be her best in The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio, as a 1950s housewife and mother who raises a family on the strength of her ability to write catchy advertising jingles that win contests. What makes Moore's performance so remarkable is that she has to play an idealized mother, warm, nurturing, patient, smart, perfect in every way imaginable - especially in comparison to her worthless husband (Woody Harrelson)

The dust has finally settled on Sun Magazine's annual photo contest.We received, oh, about a zillion entries. On the contest's last day we were hopping up every few minutes and running down to our lobby to retrieve yet another last-minute entry.We didn't mean to keep you in suspense but it took time to sort through such a large number of pictures. Do you know how many zeros there are in a zillion? (Enough to fill a U.S. Postal Service box many times over, if you must know.)The good news is that our capable judges finally returned from their summer vacations and made their selections.

Who didn't we know at last weekend's big Maryland Art Place bash? It seems that's what happens when you feature 45 of Baltimore's uber-cool females -- glammed to the max -- in your invitation. MAP's annual art exhibition and auction took on the persona "Women of MAP" this year. Even Mother Nature, at her cold and rainy worst, couldn't keep some 300 folks away from MAP's home at Power Plant Live! Let's see. Look in one direction and you'd see Nancy and Lou Grasmick, Joyce Scott, Donna Crivello, Lynn and Tony Deering, Carole and Bean Sibel.

The plaque hangs on the wall of the doctor's office, proof of its worth to Greg Brouse, 1981 grand-prize winner of the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the National Football Foundation Scholar Athlete award. "My kids can't believe I was either a scholar or an athlete," said Brouse, who is now an oncologist in Monroe, N.C. "I think that, quietly, they make fun of me, but at the same time, they'd like to do the same for themselves. " Brouse, who starred at Centennial, turned 50 this month.

As a child, Kathryn Manion used to sit on her father's lap late into the evenings and read with him. That, said her father, Jim Manion, didn't last long. "She quickly began to read on her own," he said, adding jokingly, "I guess we weren't reading fast enough. " Not nearly. Tuesday night in New York City, Washington College senior and Clarksville native Kathryn Manion received Washington College's Sophie Kerr Prize for her body of short stories and other creative work. At more than $58,000 this year, it is considered the most lucrative undergraduate literary award in the country.

The morning after an independent filmmaker heard he's been given a $25,000 arts award, he tried to assess what the check would mean. Matthew Porterfield, who walked away with the Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize on Saturday, worked seven years as a waiter at the Chameleon Cafe in Northeast Baltimore to support himself as an artist who made films the way he wanted. In his top-earning year, he once made $30,000 as a kindergarten teacher. Many years he made less than $12,000, despite high critical praise for his cinematic treatments involving the lives of people living in the Northeast Baltimore, where he was born and still resides.

I told some friends that Tomas Tranströmer had won the Nobel Prize. Some responded, "Who?" and others said that it was cool that someone in Baltimore had won the Nobel. This latter group, of course, had heard the local hubbub and were thinking about Adam Riess at the Johns Hopkins University, who (along with two other physicists) was awarded the Nobel in physics for showing that the universe is still expanding. Mr. Riess was able to infer this by observing close by and further away supernovae.
