Before California Chrome could even reach his nose across the finish line in the Kentucky Derby, the chestnut colt's exercise rider, Willie Delgado , received a text from his biggest fan back home. “Daddy, I can't believe you just won the Kentucky Derby,” wrote Delgado's 6-year-old daughter, Savannah. Two weeks later, the 46-year-old former jockey is still soaking in the victory. But his emotions don't revolve solely around the thrill of California Chrome's chase for the Triple Crown, which will continue Saturday in the 139th Preakness Stakes.

Savannah, the new restaurant in the Admiral Fell Inn, is for people who like to think about food, talk about food, discuss the pros and cons of a wine with the waiter and linger over a meal once it's been ordered.If you like knowing that the chef herself made the blackberry vinaigrette for your salad from a whole flat of blackberries, this is the restaurant for you.If you enjoy getting the provenance of the stone-milled grits used the speckled grit cakes, pick up the phone and make your reservation now.The nice folks who run Savannah are justifiably proud of their food; they just may tell you more about it than you want to know.

The only two teams with undefeated records in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference this season -- Morgan State and Savannah State -- won't play each other until possibly the conference tournament. With 13 teams in the league and limited room in the MEAC schedule, each conference team plays 11 opponents at least once and five opponents twice in home-and-away games. That leaves each team failing to face one league opponent, and for the Bears (6-10 overall and 4-0 in the MEAC), that means no games with Savannah State (7-12, 5-0)

"I'd cast Tommy Lee Jones as Jim Williams, definitely," he says. "And for Danny Hansford, somebody like Brad Pitt . . . you know, the whole young hunk thing."Writer John Berendt is sipping coffee at the Dunhill Hotel in Charlotte, N.C., one recent morning, imagining the movie version of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" (Random House, $23), his best-selling book about Savannah, Ga.He's negotiating a sales price with Hollywood deal-makers, and though he didn't plan it that way, he concedes that the book has "all the ingredients" for a box-office hit."

You won't find Harry B. James listed among the guides at Savannah's Visitors and Convention Bureau. But no one relates Savannah's black history with more verve than this 60-something, retired U.S. mailman and longtime deacon of the city's First African Baptist church, the oldest black Baptist church in North America.The gray, stuccoed, brick church stands on Montgomery Street, overlooking the west side of Franklin Square, one of the 24 squares envisioned by Savannah's founder, James Edward Oglethorpe, in 1733.

SAVANNAH, the newest eatery to open in the Admiral Fell Inn in Fells Point, had its grand opening recently. Among the more than 700 people who stopped by for a look and a taste included lots of politicos, ranging from former Gov. William Donald Schaefer to city councilman Tony Ambridge.I am told that politicians seemed to be drawn to places where Savannah chef-proprietor Cindy Wolf and director-proprietor Tony Foreman work. They met, courted and were married while working at Georgia Brown's in D.C., a local hot spot for politicos.

Savannah G. "Penny" Vernarelli, a registered nurse who served in the Army in World War II and Korea, died of lung cancer Tuesday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The longtime Hamilton resident was 85. She was born Savannah Georgia Swaim and raised in Ironto, Va., and graduated from high school in Roanoke, Va. "People think she was named for Savannah, Georgia, but she wasn't. Her father, a Norfolk and Western Railway conductor, gave her the nickname of Penny because she was so small," said a son, Mark A. Vernarelli of Baldwin, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services and former television news reporter.

But, as always, we'll do what we can to help.* "Frasier" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- This repeat from last year places David Hyde Pierce at center stage, as he recognizes a plumber as the bully who tormented him in grade school.

The Savannah, the world's first nuclear-powered commercial vessel, will be docked at Canton Marine Terminals in Baltimore for at least the next year as crews scrub the ship of remaining radioactive materials. The sleek 596-foot cargo and passenger vessel arrived at Vane Brothers Co.'s berth Thursday, after the company won a $588,380 annual contract from the U.S. Maritime Administration to secure the vessel for up to three years. Constructed in the 1950s under President Dwight D.

According to the hospital, Outen is to fly in Monday and sing to cancer patient Bo Oliver, who's 16. She'll be singing a song she wrote in Bo's honor. The treat for Bo is the work of Music is Medicine's Donate a Song program.  Any profits from the tune called "Brave and True" will go to Johns Hopkins pediatric oncology research. Like Justin Bieber, Outen launched her career on YouTube.

Finally, a drama free night on "American Idol," and the best night to date. It's a fact, everything is BIGGER in Texas! We joined the contestants in San Antonio and Long Beach tonight and neither town let us down. Actually they both did the absolute opposite and lifted the show to a new plateau. There were no nicknames, cat fights and minimal appearances by low- or no-talent hopefuls. The show began with the return of Vincent Powell who made it to the end of Hollywood week last season -- and what a return.

On a Sunday morning, Fells Point is a different neighborhood from the bar-hopper's paradise it was just 12 hours earlier. The sun is bright and the air crisp on this fine fall day. A few tourists are already out for a stroll, and the mood is mellow.We are headed for Savannah, the high-end restaurant in the basement of the Admiral Fell Inn. It seems a shame to go underground on such a nice day, even for what promises to be an excellent brunch. But the rooms are lighter than I expected. The sun filters in through small windows and sparkles on the mimosas, orange juice and champagne that are complimentary with the meal (if you have a coupon)

I swear it's true. I wanted to go to Savannah, Ga., before that book came out. That book, of course, is "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" by John Berendt.His vivid, reconstructed account of a locally prominent murder trial and three retrials has carved for Savannah its own place in the American psyche. Among the book's fascinations is the city's isolation, cultivated in particular by members of its genteel class.So, yes, I've read that book. And it is at the request of the lender of a copy autographed by the author of that book that I have a mission while in Savannah: Find her a trinket derived from the photograph on the book's jacket.

Radio: 88.9 FM Series: Morgan State leads 6-0 What's at stake: After their 21-18 upset win over North Carolina A&T got the Bears back to .500 and undefeated in conference play, their confidence is high. Saturday's game presents a golden opportunity to push Morgan up the standings with a win. But the Bears can't overlook the Tigers because they are in the cellar of the conference.

The Baltimore Sun's front page on July 22, 1959, carried the news accompanied by a six-column photo: The world's first nuclear-powered cargo ship had been launched at Camden, N.J. The christening of the $47 million N/S Savannah was bigger than news about legislation to extend the GI Bill of Rights, bigger than a Cape Canaveral rocket launch, bigger, even, than a federal court ruling to allow the steamy novel "Lady Chatterley's Lover" to be sent...
