A small deer shook up downtown Annapolis residents yesterday when it bounded down city streets and leaped over fences as it was being tailed by police officers.About 6 p.m., residents of a neighborhood near St. John's College and the Naval Academy spotted the deer, not a common sight so near the City Dock.Causing no damage -- except to the ego of a neighborhood German shepherd -- the deer ran through the car-packed streets and eluded officers."What's a deer doing in the middle of downtown Annapolis?"

It all started the day after Michael McCrary's four-sack game against Oakland, when Tony Siragusa suggested that McCrary might be an alien.This was not just any old scoop.This was my ticket to the National Enquirer.Siragusa's comments made it legitimate to ask McCrary if he was an alien, and other Ravens if they noticed extraterrestrial tendencies in his behavior.As columns go, it offered a lot more promise than, say, another detailed analysis of the Ravens' inept play-calling.We popped the question to McCrary.

Everybody in the family remembers when John and Lillian Schaffner returned to their home on Miller Road in Butler after an evening with friends. Waiting for them was John's mother. It was 11 o'clock at night."What are you doing out so late?" the mother demanded.This being maybe a year ago, John Schaffner mistakenly assumed he could stay out as late as he wanted. He was 71 years old at the time.But his mother was 105, and mothers know better.Next week, going by the calendar and checking the various centuries of her existence, Ida Bernice "Grandma" Schaffner will be 107, and she's still paying attention to the things around her, including the lives of her son and daughter-in-law, with whom she lives, her three grandchildren and her six great-grandchildren.
