Editor's note: This is the first in a series of occasional features on prominent local residents and the possessions they treasure. You can get a pretty good idea of someone's journey through life by looking at the objects with which he surrounds himself. For Gary Vikan, who stepped down this spring as the director of the Walters Art Museum , those objects include a pair of tickets to Woodstock, a piece of the gate guarding Graceland, a collection of Russian icons and a miniature replica of the Shroud of Turin.

Four years ago, Kimmie Meissner marched in the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Turin, at 16 the youngest member of the U.S. team. Meissner, the silver medalist at the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships that year, finished sixth at the Olympics in only her third international competition on the senior level. A month later, she won the world title. This year, she's home in Bel Air, rehabilitating a dislocated kneecap that kept her out of competition last season and preparing for ice shows this spring.

TURIN, Italy -- On the first day of the Winter Olympics, Kimmie Meissner met Laura Bush and heard Luciano Pavarotti and Peter Gabriel sing and Yoko Ono give a reading. But the person she was talking about after last night's opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium was a U.S. women's hockey player, Kim Insalaco. Insalaco, of Rochester, N.Y., approached Meissner before the ceremony and told her that the entire women's hockey team had been cheering for her at the U.S. figure skating championships last month in St. Louis because she and Insalaco shared the same first name.

The Winter Olympics is almost over. But you knew that, because Baltimore rates in the top quarter of the nation's television markets for viewing NBC's prime-time Turin Games coverage. If you have friends in Washington, Atlanta or Houston, though, you may want to pass the news along, because they're likely not watching. Before the flame goes out and the NBC guys pack up their Armani, let's hand out a few of those doughnut-shaped (or given that the Games are in Italy, should that be zeppole-shaped?

TURIN, Italy -- Kimmie Meissner got gold-medal questions yesterday at a downtown news conference. Speed skater Chad Hedrick, who won the 5,000-meter race last Saturday, asks about her availability to skate doubles with him. Fellow long-track skater Derek Parra, who won the 1,500-meter race in 2002, asks about the difference in consistency between the ice he competes on and the ice she calls home. Talk about running with the big dogs. Meissner arrived in Turin yesterday after spending a week training in the mountain town of Courmayer.

TURIN, Italy -- Passion, pageantry and Pavarotti. All three were present in grand scale last night as the XX Winter Olympics began with a sometimes majestic, sometimes whimsical opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium. It even featured an upset. Amid a 2 1/2 -hour show highlighted by in-line skaters wearing futuristic helmets that shot flames 6 feet into the air, fake cows on rollers, dancing trees, costumes by Giorgio Armani, dancers from Milan's La Scala opera house and the incomparable Luciano Pavarotti, Stefania Belmondo, a surprise choice, was the final torchbearer.

TURIN, Italy-- --The opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics is tomorrow night. We might as well get the FAQs out of the way so we're not repeating ourselves over the next 17 days. 1. What are your first impressions? The first sign visitors see at the airport advertises the "American Circus," which was somewhat disappointing. Did I really travel 4,000 miles to watch the offseason routine of Rafael Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa? The next thing I saw heading into the city: A man pulled over on the side of the road urinating.

Lindsey Vonn was going downhill so fast - in a wholesome, epic, lucrative way - there wasn't time to wait for her to actually win an Olympic medal. Lindsey's script was penned months ago, and should her skis take turns for the Whistler worse, well, in the snow business there's always white-out. Usually in America, you need to first cry through your national anthem to activate the Olympics gold card, but Vonn's forward momentum could not be contained. She is the drink of these Vancouver Olympics (Red Bull)

TURIN, Italy-- --I clutched the baseball jersey in my hand and looked at the manhole cover near my feet. All around me, cars were zipping by without a second thought to what I was doing, how I was altering the course of history, how I was saving the Orioles' franchise from ruin. I paused for a bit and let it all sink in. The rain was still coming down, rolling off my head and finding the cracks in the ground. These cracks formed small streams, and they all funneled to the same place just a few inches from my soaked feet - the Gates of Hell.

TURIN, Italy-- --The athletes flooded the stadium in a pack, and you could see the flags poking above a sea of heads. There was no real order. The closing ceremony at the Olympics is a celebration of unity. So you watched the flags and followed the country names on the JumboTron. Hungary ... Iceland ... India ... Iran ... But wait. ... Ireland ... Israel ... Italy ... Wasn't one missing? ... What happened to Iraq? You laugh because these are the Winter Games, and Iraq sees about as much snow each year as my dining room.

Michelle Kwan will have a third chance to win an elusive Olympic gold medal. The skater who has won nearly everything -- except the sport's biggest prize -- was named to the Olympic team yesterday morning after performing her short and long programs in a closed practice session in Los Angeles. "It feels awesome," said Kwan, who withdrew from the U.S. Figure Skating Championships earlier this month in St. Louis, citing a pulled groin muscle. Kwan, 25, admittedly did not skate the performance she wants to have in Turin next month, landing just four clean triples in her long program and falling on a relatively simple double axel in the short.
