THERE THEY sat. A sporting relic in a small glass box. The pair of crumpled, black, high-top cleats Johnny Unitas wore during his last game as a Baltimore Colt. Someone had left them on a table in the press box hours before the NFL's greatest quarterback was honored in a pre-game ceremony at Ravens Stadium yesterday. The sight of those cleats was enough to send a chill down your spine. At least mine, anyway. Everyone talks about that "Golden Arm," but that arm was only as good as Unitas' iron will, his competitive fire, his radar read of the defense and, yes, the feet.

I want to thank The Baltimore Sun and Jacques Kelly for that wonderful obituary for my sister Vivienne Shub (Sept. 18). No one was closer to me than Vivi and I feel her loss most keenly. But as you brought together the many ways she worked her magic on the Baltimore theater scene, I had the sense that my grief was shared and that somehow made it more bearable. I was delighted when Vivi's son told me he looked up as he drove by the Charles Theater and saw Vivienne's name on the marquee.

Editor: Thank you for publishing the tribute to Ms. Janice Paulshock just prior to Mother's Day. Those of us who know the Paulshock family would agree that both Janice and Robert are truly inspirational. Despite their enormous challenges they faced as a family they have raised three wonderful children as evidenced in Brooke's tribute. Brittany and Bobby are equally as talented as their sister, Brooke, but more importantly each one of them are kind and hardworking young adults. Janice's and Robert's sacrifices and commitment to make sure their children did not miss much during their difficult time is a testament to their strong family network.

Every performance by jazz singer Rene Marie is an act of validation. Sixteen years ago, she faced an ultimatum from her then-husband - abandon music or get out. She chose the latter course, and went on to enjoy an international career. Her musical journey continues as Marie brings her Eartha Kitt tribute to Creative Alliance this weekend. Given her self-confidence and dynamic personality, Marie is a natural to delve into the legacy of the sexy, indelible Kitt. Although Marie can purr seductively through a song, she doesn't try to imitate Kitt.

Every year we hear complaints from merchants or residents who don't like Honfest for a variety of reasons. This is fine. The good news is that we all have the ability to choose the festivals (and businesses) we wish to support (or not). The even better news is that if we all have the opportunity to create our own festival, honoring whatever we want to honor and placing restrictions on whatever we want to restrict (or not). We just have to be willing to take the initiative and risks involved, develop and grow the creative idea, do all the hard work, garner volunteer support and sponsorships, deal with the city's permitting process, put up our own capital and then start all over again for the next year.

Tribute shows can be engaging and illuminating when the person being honored matters and the people doing the honoring are a little deeper than the usual celebrity suspects. That's the case on the AMC cable channel with The American Cinematheque Honors Samuel L. Jackson. The annual award goes to an artist who has made a significant contribution to the motion picture industry. Director George Lucas will present the award. His presence alone accounts for more than twice the normal brainpower at most Hollywood gatherings.

After reading John Patterson's commentary on bullying, my newspaper was wet with tears ("A lesson for life: Be Tim Hillman," Aug. 17). For those of us who were bullied as youngsters, our school years were long, daunting and painful. What a relief when someone strays from the "cool crowd" to become a friend, respecting and accepting you for who you are, not judging based on status. A slight smile and ego boost to propel you along. We strive to do good and to live a life of purpose.

While the Washington Wizards have removed virtually all traces of Gilbert Arenas from Verizon Center, one teammate found a way to get his suspended teammate's nickname visible Sunday before the team's loss to the New Orleans Hornets. DeShawn Stevenson took to the court during pre-game warm-ups with the words "AGENT" and "ZERO" written in red capital letters on tape wrapped just above his ankles. "He's still a part of the team, right?" Stevenson said. "He's still part of the team, he's my brother, so I'm going to stick to him through rough times.

The Hampden ice cream shop that gave us "Crunch Davis," a tribute flavor to Oriole slugger Chris Davis, and "The Heisenberg," a farewell flavor in honor of the end of "Breaking Bad," is at it again. The Charmery is hoping to give Ravens running back Ray Rice a little nudge on the field with a tribute flavor named the Ray Rice Krispy Treat, which it describes as "a beautiful fresh blueberry purple base with rice krispy treat chunks in it.

On Friday, Belvedere Square will help pay tribute to the late Nelson Carey, the owner of Grand Cru, a European-style wine bar that has been one of the longtime anchors of the North Baltimore marketplace. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., during Belvedere Square's weekly free   Summer Sounds   concert, merchants such as Atwater's, Ceriello Fine Foods and newcomer Tooloulou will be serving a different version of Carey's favorite food -- the hot dog.  Guests will be asked to make a $5 donation for each hot dog, and the money raised will be used to help finance the college education of Carey's daughter, Paige.

The video prepared by St. Agnes Hospital for the development of the property once known as the Cardinal Gibbons School was impressive ( "Some neighbors unhappy as plans coalesce for Cardinal Gibbons," July 1). It is apparent many people are committed to making several of the former school buildings and the property a model for the community, the state and the nation on how to revitalize a neighborhood. However, this was not the model provided the faculty, staff and students when the Archdiocese of Baltimore announced the closure of the school in 2010.

The new memorial and museum commemorating the worst attack on the continental United States in history stands starkly as remembrance of that morning in lower Manhattan nearly 13 years ago when terrorism rained down on the Twin Towers from those two hijacked jetliners. The complex at Ground Zero of that enormous tragedy recalls and honors the 3,000 Americans and others who perished, as well as the service of the thousands of selfless firefighters, police and other first responders who valiantly raced to rescue them at peril to their own lives.

I wanted to scream after reading the editorial about Ron Smith on Friday ("The voice of reason," Nov. 25). To say The Sun's editorial board is not often in agreement with Ron in matters of politics and government is a given. Ron's ideas are reasonable and formed by basic common sense. The Sun's ideas are usually absurd, partisan and predictably wrong. To link Ron with Rush Limbaugh and Fox News is absurd - more predictable Sun style. You were correct that he is not captive of the dogma or talking points of the right, as The Sun carries the water of the far left daily.

Even though the Orioles have made plans to honor late public relations director Monica Barlow as part of a pregame ceremony on Opening Day, players would like to have another way to remember Barlow on the field throughout the season. That's not the easiest thing to do, because Major League Baseball has strict uniform regulations that prevent players from making alterations to uniforms on their own. The Orioles will honor Barlow - as well as team investor and Baltimore-born novelist Tom Clancy, former Gold Glove outfielder Paul Blair and 10 other members of the Orioles family who passed away since last Opening Day - during a pregame video tribute Monday before the Orioles play their season opener against the Boston Red Sox. Barlow died Feb. 28 after a nearly four-and-a-half - year battle with lung cancer at age 36. But Orioles first baseman Chris Davis said this past week that Barlow meant so much to them as players that they have discussed ways to carry her memory onto the field with them during every game.

Picture a Victorian mansion in move-in condition that could function as a bed-and-breakfast, a home for a growing family, or just a place for anyone hankering for a bygone time. This 19th-century home at 114 Washington Ave. in Chestertown on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay fits the bill. "What I like best about the house is the enthusiasm with which the owners researched [the home's history] and tried to restore it as authentically as they could," said Terry Stafford, an agent with Keller Williams American Premier Realty LLC and the listing agent for the property, which is priced at $675,000.
