Richard E. Otto, whose high-stepping strut as drum major for the Colts Marching Band entertained football fans at Memorial Stadium for more than two decades, died of leukemia yesterday at his Rodgers Forge home. He was 65. Standing 6 feet 8 inches, dressed in a white outfit trimmed in blue fringe and wearing a white cowboy hat, Mr. Otto became a memorable figure for those who attended Baltimore Colts football games. For them, Mr. Otto and the high-stepping move he originated - which he accompanied with a rhythmic pumping of his baton into the air - remain an integral part of memories of the band marching down the field to lively renditions of the Colts fight songs.

It may be time for the reigning champ of the small sports sedan category to step aside. BMW's stellar 3 series has owned the niche for pretty much forever, but a worthy competitor is growling in the wings and has the Bavarian giant squarely in its sights: Cadillac. You read that right. Cadillac's resurgence over the past decade has been nothing short of amazing. When the fearsome CTS-V set a record at Germany's fabled Nurburgring for the fastest production sedan in 2008, the antiquated Caddy catchphrase “Standard of the World” suddenly seemed a lot less hubristic.

Wood floors. Dark-red walls. Sixteen-foot ceilings. Metal pillars. A grand iron staircase. When you walk into Gardel's Argentinian Supper Club you'll want to stand a bit straighter and stare -- mouth open -- at the stunning interior. And most likely, you'll want to dance. Gardel's, which is in the old City Life Museum a few blocks north of Little Italy, does serve a full dinner and has an inviting wooden bar. But it is meant to be a place to strut to Latin tunes on the dance floor. For the not-so-smooth clientele, there are free tango lessons on Sundays at 3 p.m. The grand opening is planned for the end of September, but the club is open now for dinner and dancing.

Grab your partner. . . . Oops. Wrong dance. This is country-western line dancing -- sort of the electric slide to the latest country music sounds."The great thing about line dancing is you can come in here without a partner," said Savage resident Roger Tillman, dance instructor for Randy's California Inn in North Laurel. "First of all, it gets you out of the house. And secondly, it's great exercise -- like an aerobic workout."Five days a week, Mr. Tillman cooks up dance steps and serves dozens of amateur dancers with free lessons at the restaurant and bar. They pack the floor, toe-to-toe, stepping and strutting in their cowboy hats and boots (the western paraphernalia is optional)

Once upon a time "My favorite story is one called `Coyote's Song,' " says Kathy MacMillan, the Children's Services supervisor at the Eldersburg Branch Library. "It has a lot of howling in it." Encouraging howling, believe it or not, is good, says MacMillan. She hosts a five-part storytelling workshop for kids 8 and up. The classes cover the basics of telling tales, including expression and presentation. Howling seems to resonate with the kids. The oral performances build their confidence, MacMillan says.

Cunningham's wants to be a restaurant for all moods and occasions, for anniversary dinners and impromptu weeknight meals. That's no easy trick. The atmosphere has to feel special but not overwhelming, and the food has to be captivating enough for serious diners but not intimidating to casual ones. Cunningham's - the latest from the Bagby Restaurant Group, whose other restaurants include Ten Ten American Bistro and Fleet Street Kitchen - gets this right in so many ways.

They sold a lot of drink cups and shoes and T-shirts. At least the NBA and the shoe companies hope they did.They showed the world how to strut and preen after dunking on a Chinese center who was hoping mostly not to incur a head injury with his team trailing by 50.They won something called the World Championship of Basketball. If you enjoyed it, you probably think the American invasion of Grenada was a good war.Oh, and the members of Dream Team II succeeded in demonstrating why the NBA is getting slam-dunked with bad pub now after a decade of happy-face growth success.

Regulars know that the new JumboTron board is no suitable replacement for the old totalizator board in the infield, and yesterday the Preakness crowd came to realize it. "I understood the other board better," Carol Barney said. "The old one made a little more sense. You could tell the exactas and trifectas. I just can't understand some of the stuff on this one." Deactivated to make room for $250 canopied seats facing the track's rail, the old tote board provided much more information more often and was easier to see in both the sunshine and the shadows.

Soccer standouts Ashley Spivey and Jalen Robinson have done a lot of the things other high school teenagers do during summer break. Spivey, 16, set to be a junior at McDonogh this fall, worked on getting her driver's license and enjoyed a family vacation at the beach. Robinson, also 16 and a rising junior at Mount St. Joseph, went to a couple of movies and got in some time at the pool with friends. While making the most of their down time, the two All-Metro selections also took advantage of rare experiences that highlighted their time away from school — traveling abroad to play for U.S. youth national soccer teams.
