Kudos to the Tibbs Family of the Havre de Grace area for its recent success at theMaryland State Fair. For the first time in the 26 years Bob and Judy Tibbs, who run Shadow Springs Farm, have been taking animals to the state fair, they took six. Each won a blue ribbon. That's better than outstanding. The Tibbses are no stranger to success with their animals. In 2009, a Charolais white bull, SSF Corks 5J White Squall ET, was named Supreme Champion Bull at the state fair, then won National Reserve Grand Champion at the Keystone Livestock Show in Pennsylvania and also was the reserve grand champion at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo in Texas.

Local experts say the bovine with the snow white coat can compete against the country's best. "He walked into the barn, and I was totally amazed," said Andy Cashman, assistant manager of the Maryland State Fair. "If you are into judging, he is one for the records with all the right points.

I now keep track of holidays, anniversaries and special events almost exclusively via DVD release schedules. Thus, I know Black History Month is a few days away by the release of The Sidney Poitier DVD Collection (MGM), which collects five of the pioneering actor's films. Even taken out of its context, 1967 best picture Oscar winner In the Heat of the Night remains a stunner. Here, Poitier finally casts off the mantle of nobility he had worn for a decade to play Virgil Tibbs, a Philadelphia homicide cop who refuses to turn the other cheek to the Mississippi racists who begrudgingly beg his help to solve a murder.

Although heat ruled the day at Laurel Park, rain may have been the key to yesterday's Fourth of July feature.Casey Tibbs ventured from Belmont Park to win the $100,000 Fort McHenry Handicap, a 1 1/4-mile romp on turf. An Irish-bred son of Sadler's Wells, Europe's top sire, Casey Tibbs prefers "a little cut in the ground," said his assistant trainer, Christophe Lorieul. By that, he meant the 5-year-old horse likes turf that isn't like pavement. Lorieul said Laurel's turf, softened by recent rains, was perfect.

Rodney Tibbs and good friend Marvin Hill had reached the point where they could no longer take hearing about the devilment that is the Preakness infield. Wanting to see if reality would match the hype, the two drove from Calvert County at dawn yesterday, stopping briefly to buy a $150 camera. By midafternoon, Tibbs, 37, turned to Hill, 38, and posed, in essence, a rhetorical question. "Man, is it always like this?" he asked. In a word, yep. As Tibbs and Hill learned, the rules of etiquette, and in some cases laws, are suspended for the 90,000 people who make up the infield.

As the final day of summer dawned last week, Shadow Springs Farm yielded the birth of a lean, white Charolais calf. Farmer J. Robert Tibbs Jr. checks on the calf throughout the day as he has done with scores of cattle on this land for nearly 30 years. The cattle here will come and go, but Tibbs wants to preserve the Havre de Grace farm for generations to come. He has preserved the property through one of Harford County's agricultural land preservation programs. This month the independent Farmland Preservation Report published a survey that found Harford is among the nation's leaders in farmland preservation.

The Exonerated, a made-for-TV movie (9 tonight, Court TV) based on the off-Broadway play, tells the stories behind the headlines about flaws in our criminal justice system. Here are six heartfelt, in-depth autobiographies, conveyed by actors but based on interviews and true stories, telling of individuals falsely convicted, sentenced to death and freed many years later. The outlines of their stories are shocking enough, but Exonerated explores their intimate experiences and conveys the incalculable and irreversible human cost such injustice exacts.
