When the Providence coaching staff decided last spring that Bilal Dixon didn't fit into its plans for the 2012-13 season, the 6-foot-9, 245-pound center quickly thought of one guy he'd like to play for in his last year of eligibility. "[Pat] Skerry was my man," Dixon said of Towson's second-year coach, a former Friars assistant. "My freshman year I redshirted [at Providence], and Skerry was the head coach of the redshirting squad. He let me play my game. We used to go at it. " Never mind that Dixon fielded inquiries from several high-major schools interested in adding a battle-tested Big East veteran at the 5. Never mind that Dixon had never heard of Towson before Skerry got the coaching job there one year before.

Schmitt's commitment has continued. She spends two days a week at Providence, a medical day care center for adults with developmental disabilities. The longtime volunteer helps clients during lunchtime and activity sessions, and accompanies them on local trips. The center says it could use more volunteers like Schmitt.

Anne Arundel County school officials last week were searching for clues to the disappearance of the entrance sign at Arlington Echo Outdoor Education Center. The sign, crafted 30 years ago from fallen red oak trees on the property, was stolen between 5:30 p.m. Monday and 7 a.m. Wednesday. The Millersville school was closed during that period for Election Day. "The sign has great value to the staff and has been widely recognized over the years," said schools spokesman Bob Mosier, who added the staff at the center has been shocked because Arlington Echo has experienced only one act of vandalism in its 38 years.

At the Captain's Corner gift shop in Loews Annapolis Hotel, it's the Providence Center label that counts.It's not that the pottery, woodwork, paintings and crafts aren't alluring enough. It's just that spending money for a work of art and helping a good cause at the same time is more appealing.All crafts sold by the shop benefit Providence Center Inc., a private, nonprofit organization based in Severna Park that has placed adults with developmental disabilities in jobs for 35 years."My feeling is that it's all very good work," said Sharon Block of Annapolis, who was admiring the crafts and searching for large pottery pieces as Christmas presents for family members.
