" Necole Kane, who grew up on the Eastern Shore and lived in Baltimore for several years while attending Morgan State and Towson universities, is the visionary and CEO behind Necolebitchie.com, one of the hottest urban gossip websites in the country. The site, which debuted in 2007 and has built a cultlike fan following, dishes up a mix of celebrity entertainment news, pop culture, music and fashion via posts, photos and video interviews on "Bitchie TV," her YouTube channel.

In golf parlance, bodies of water are classified as "hazards. " And, we've come to learn, not only for wayward shots. For Thomas Levet, a French Open victory leap turned into a British Open withdrawal when doctors told him his broken shin requires surgery to insert screws and a plate. "However, the wonderful memory of winning my national Open will definitely keep me going through my recovery," the Frenchman said in giving up his spot next week at Royal St. George's. Call it a consolation prize.

Some restaurants serve meals; others create dining experiences. Cunningham's, the newest addition to the Towson dining scene, is the latter. Bagby Group -- which also owns Harbor East favorites Ten Ten and Fleet Street Kitchen -- knows a thing or two about running a successful restaurant. That knowledge is apparent immediately after stepping into the well-appointed dining room at Cunningham's, which balances drama and comfort both on the menu and in the space. The main dining room is divided by a few low partitions and illuminated by a variety of glamorous fixtures.

Blaine Young isn't exactly a household name in Maryland, but the prospective contender for the Republican GOP nomination has to be a bit better known in political circles after the splash he made at the annual political rite of passage known as the J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake in Crisfield Wednesday. Young, president of the Frederick County Board of County Commissioners, brought a busload of supporters to the Eastern Shore fishing port to promote his increasingly credible candidacy.

His father was an Orioles standout; his mother, a world-class swimmer. With that pedigree, was it any surprise that Austin Surhoff led Texas to the NCAA Division I men's swimming and diving team championship in Columbus, Ohio, last weekend? Surhoff, 19, a freshman from St. Paul's, was Texas' only individual winner, taking the 200-yard individual medley by a scant .004 of a second. His victory early in the meet buoyed the Longhorns' hopes and powered them to their 10th NCAA title. With his parents, B.J. Surhoff and the former Polly Winde, in the stands, Surhoff touched the wall a whisker in front.

U nder normal conditions, Sean Murphy is not an excitable boy. But the opening day of trout season was not a normal day and the fish at the other end of his line was not your garden variety rainbow trout - unless, of course, your gardener's name is Jolly Green Giant. At 10.5 pounds and 28 inches long, with a girth of 17.5 inches, the trout "looked like a salmon," when Mark Staley and his stocking crew plopped it in the Patap-sco River just days before the season opened March 27. It was so large that the Fisheries Service boys swapped their 5-gallon white bucket for a big net to get the fish from the tank truck to the river.

The serious swimmer the one who snarls as you splash around and interrupt her lap count buys a serious swimsuit. No string bikinis or thongs for her. No fancy decoration or bustier tops. She wants comfort and practicality, a suit that won't interfere with her stroke and will help cut an extra 1/8 -second off her best time. The Speedo racer-back, thank you.This story isn't for her.This is for those of us engaged in more leisurely pursuits.Maybe attending a poolside cocktail party or watching the sun set from the deck of a sailboat.

Prior to the Navy men's soccer team's first-round game in the NCAA tournament against Virginia Commonwealth University, the Midshipmen talked about making sure that their stay in the postseason wasn't a short one. Mission accomplished. Navy's 3-0 rout of VCU on Thursday night was the program's first win the NCAA tournament since Nov. 23, 1971, when that squad defeated South Florida, 3-1. The team will face No. 14 seed Wake Forest (9-5-5) in the second round Sunday at 5 p.m. in Winston-Salem, N.C. Coach Dave Brandt, who had implored the players not to settle for just simply being invited to the tournament after winning the Patriot League title, was pleased with what he saw unfold in Richmond.

One of the very best parts of the Miley Cyrus-hosted "Saturday Night Live" on October 5 was a music video. A parody of Miley's "We Can't Stop," "We Did Stop (The Government)" pokes fun at the government shutdown while holding true to the style and tone of the original. It's pretty incredible. Cyrus herself plays the character of Michele Bachmann in the video, while "SNL" actor Taran Killam appears as John Boehner. Between them, the two take full credit for the current shutdown of the government (deriving from Congress' inability to come to any sort of consensus)

Dan and Louise Runion of Clarksville may be humble antiques and art dealers working out of a bedroom-size cubicle in Frederick, but they're big in Poland. Lately they've been featured in Polish newspapers, television and radio, and were welcomed by the Polish ambassador in Washington for a champagne toast as thanks for donating six lithographs by an artist who became prominent in Europe between the world wars. Chalk it up to charity, accident and a discerning eye for art. "This was one of those remarkable finds," said Louise Runion.

Maggie is a 15-year-old indoor cat, and she loves to play in water. She climbs up on the toilet seat and splashes around. But she also splashes in the community water bowl (there are two other cats), and the water is all over the floor. She drinks by putting her paw in the water and then licking it. I am constantly refilling this self-watering bowl because she splashes it all out. How can I break her of this behavior? She's driving us nuts with the mess. She's also keeping our other (male)
