When you go to the trial of the man who sank a knife into your friend Stephen's heart as he walked home talking to his mother on his cell phone, you think you've already heard the worst. But during the next eight days of evidence and testimony, you realize you were wrong: As you hear the killer's girlfriend say she punched Stephen in the mouth after he fell, and later they "felt bad" as they washed Stephen's blood off their hands, but then "got down to business," and figured out how to use his credit card to buy cocaine.

Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia has always been a regional treasure for theatergoers, but the current production of "Memphis: The Musical" proves that no smash hit is too big for Toby's to produce with pizazz. The theater's intimate in-the-round venue brings the action so close to audiences that they become part of it, expanding the emotional impact into new dimensions. With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music and lyrics by David Bryan, "Memphis: The Musical" ran on Broadway from 2009 to 2012, and captured four Tony Awards in 2010, including best musical.

I am writing in reference to Susan Reimer's commentary of Monday Feb. 22 titled, "Where Terrorist and '60s Child Converge." In her commentary she discusses her identification with areas of terrorists' distaste and frustration with America, mainly with many of its excesses. But to me, that is where America is a blessing -- not only in the excesses to choose from but also in an individual's ability to choose which excesses to participate in and the exposure to contrasts in ideals and philosophies to consider or believe in. I too was a "rebellious caged youth of my parent's narrow, middle class values."

Et cetera Nairn scores game-winner as Spirit makes playoff push Christine Nairn (Archbishop Spalding) scored the game-winner in the 67th minute as the host Washington Spirit defeated second-place FC Kansas City, 2-1, in the National Women's Soccer League on Wednesday night. Washington, playing without leading scorer Jodie Taylor , went down a goal in the 18th minute, but Kerstin Garefrekes tied the game in the 49th and Nairn put the team ahead to stay after that.

Chris Coffland did not compromise. If a job did not give him the chance to do enough good, to dig deep into understanding the human condition, he would not keep it, even if it offered money and stability. If a woman did not please his eye, stimulate his mind and share his passion for art, he could not fall in love. He would not even buy a pair of sunglasses if the label seemed tacky. To understand why the 43-year-old Baltimore native ended up killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan last week, it is important to understand that quality above all. Because settling was never in his marrow, Coffland joined the Army as an intelligence specialist at an age when most men are working 9-to-5 and driving the kids to school.

Reyes is anti-baseball Paul Doyle Hartford Courant In one of the greatest 24-hour stretches in baseball history, fans were treated to wall-to-wall drama. Everywhere, players were seizing the moment. Then there's Jose Reyes, who decided to sit on his moment. He left the Mets' game after his first-inning bunt single in an effort to secure a batting title. Reyes isn't just the anti-Ted Williams, he's anti-everything we love about baseball. Even his manager, baseball lifer Terry Collins, said he understood the jeering he heard from the crowd.

This is the story of Stewart "Stu" McCullouch III , part-time Rodgers Forge resident, retired Air Force captain, aerospace engineer, triathlete and aspiring Ironman. Sounds intimidating, but truly, if you met him you would never know most of these accomplishments because boasting doesn't suit his character. You would simply think him the most jovial, salt-of-the-earth man you ever met. And maybe you did meet him during his annual part-time residency on Stanmore Road where he would stay with his daughter.

The theater is dark and cool on a sweltering recent afternoon, the colored wigs, stepladders and old furniture in the aisles remnants of a just-ended community play. Handbills in a glass case recall a 1905 musical. The ceiling is antique tin. The concession stand sits not off a lobby, but among its 120 seats. If the Havre de Grace Opera House feels less like a Harford County La Scala than a blend of off-Broadway, the Roaring '20s and Mayberry, it might be because it has been asked to play so many different roles during its 144-year history.

They came to Power Plant Live! with American flags slung like capes around their necks, red-white-and-blue suspenders holding up their shorts and giant top hats festooned with enormous glittering stars that would make Uncle Sam blush. Fifteen minutes before the United States' World Cup match against Portugal, Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A. " filled the downtown air. Ten minutes till the start, and the U.S. soccer chant, "I believe that we will win," reached a roar. A DJ whipped the crowd into bellowing "USA" with a few anxious minutes remaining.

The timing couldn't be better. Just as "Sister Act," the musical based on the hit movie from 1992, rolled into Baltimore with habits flying and vocal cords pumping, Sister Cristina Scuccia was getting ready to win the "The Voice of Italy" TV competition with a wail through "What a Feeling" from "Flashdance. " Could singing nuns get any cuter? I confess that Sister Cristina's pushy styling leaves me cold, and I confess I expected "Sister Act" to leave me even colder. Well, shut my missal.

Current and former Ravens joined more than 1,000 fans Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium for the team's draft party, eager to welcome the next flock of young talent to Baltimore. "It's an exciting time, honestly," Ravens linebacker Arthur Brown said. "I really look forward to them being drafted and having the opportunity to see what they can contribute to this team. We're looking for guys that want to make a contribution. It's exciting for them and it's exciting for us to get the chance to bring new guys in to build the program.

Everyman Theatre has been on a roll since the beginning of 2013, when the company inaugurated its inviting new downtown space. The first full season in that venue - there's one more play left, "Tribes," opening May 28 - has been marked by exceptionally effective stagings of diverse works (three were given extra weeks to meet demand). "That's why it took so long to come up with a second season," said Everyman's artistic director, Vincent Lancisi. "I really felt intimidated by the scope of this one. " What Lancisi devised for 2014-2015 is a promising mix of three Baltimore premieres and three vintage plays.

I spent most of this week thinking about what I wanted to say in this column. But then I realized I honestly couldn't say anything better than what the Ultimate Warrior said in his final appearance on WWE Raw on Monday, just 24 hours before his death. For those who didn't see the show, or don't remember the words, here's what he said: “No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them bleed deeper, than something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever.

In early December, a Facebook post announced a change had come to a Riverside haunt: “Hey guys. It's no longer Paul's bar ... we are under new ownership but not much else is going to change.” Shotti's Point had arrived, but it was the second part of the message that mattered most. From 2000 to 2013, Paul Zang turned the Fort Avenue corner bar into a no-nonsense hangout for neighborhood patrons of all ages. I unknowingly stumbled upon Paul's one summer night in 2012, and happily played pool as the gregarious Zang chatted with regulars and Led Zeppelin played over the speakers.
