She stands just five-feet tall and weighs less than some pumpkins, but that didn't stop Kacy Catanzaro from dominating last night's episode of "American Ninja Warrior. " A Towson University grad, Catanzaro became the first woman to complete one of the final obstacle courses and advance to the show's ultimate challenge, Mt. Midoriyama. Catanzaro, who is apparently 95 percent muscle and 5 percent beaming smile, used skills she honed on Towson's gymnastics team to tackle obstacles such as the salmon climb, the swinging frames, the spider climb, and other feats rarely seen outside of a Spider-Man film.

For its first two-thirds, "Shattered" is a nice, elegant, completely preposterous thriller.Personal confrontations are accompanied by torrents of rain. Magnificent homes are located near the seashore, apparently so the viewer can thrill to the pounding surf. No opportunity for melodramatic embellishment is overlooked.The film starts ominously, with a car accident that almost kills successful businessman Dan Merrick.

It has to be one of the trickiest transitions in pop music. In the past several years, O.A.R. has made the jump from successful jam band to radio-friendly rock outfit. The band once known for the nine-minute acoustic epic "That Was a Crazy Game of Poker" - a smash on the college circuit - is now the band behind the platinum-selling rock single "Shattered." Back when O.A.R. first got together in Rockville in the mid-1990s, there was a clear-cut career path for musicians: Most bands signed to major labels, cranked out a couple of hits, developed a fan base and then drew on that fan base.

A museum banner above the Walters Art Museum in Mount Vernon fell Friday afternoon, shattering a giant window, drawing emergency crews and closing the museum's ticket office for the day. The sign is located on the Centre Street side of the museum, said Mona M. Rock, museum spokeswoman. No one was hurt and only one pane was shattered - though it was a large one, she said. "We're just grateful no one was injured and we'll be fine," she said. Because the ticket office is closed, Rock said, the exhibit "The Book of the Faiyum," will be free to patrons on Friday.

Before reading this, just know that there will be no mention of the Orioles' designated hitter slump in this blog post, no talk of any blown bubbles by Adam Jones or when Dylan Bundy and Kevin Gausman are coming to the big league club. So excuse me for digressing. I was just walking down Boylston Street this past Wednesday, less than a block away from the exact spot where a city sidewalk turned into the site of tragedy during Monday's Boston Marathon, one of this country's premier sporting events.

Thanks for Susan Reimer 's commentary on the shootings at Perry Hall High School ("Failing Bobby," Aug. 30). This young man seemingly didn't have a "normal" home life. To read about other students throwing food at him or ridiculing him makes me hope that those that made fun of him are not only praying for his alleged victim but also for themselves to be better friends to everyone. Anyone who ever bullied Bobby had a hand in his shattered soul. D. Taylor, Baltimore
