The Baltimore County Center for Maryland Agriculture is broadening its horizons when it hosts a pair of events, one old and one new, at its Shawan Road site Aug 10. Considering the array of interests - beef cattle, goats, worms, vegetable gardens, rabbit-jumping contest, heirloom tomato tasting and scavenger hunt - involved, one might even describe the festival as eclectic. Everything listed, and a whole lot more, can be found at the Ag Center that day after both groups decided to hold their events on the same day in hopes of attracting more visitors.

El Capitan is an intimidating granite formation in California's Yosemite National Park, popular with climbers because its 7,573-foot vertical face presents such a challenge. Pete Davis has done the four-night, five-day ascent twice, which is an accomplishment in itself. And he did it with one hand. The native of Phoenix in Baltimore County was born without an arm below the elbow, but as he shows in the short climbing film "The Gimp Monkeys," he'd rather have "one hand and a good attitude" than two hands and a bad outlook.

American Rust By Philipp Meyer Spiegel & Grau / 367 pages / $24.95 Isaac English isn't given to idle speculation. Like his friend, Billy Poe, he has to learn his lessons the hard way. American Rust, Philipp Meyer's debut novel, gets its power from their efforts to do just that. The characters manage (and fail to manage) their complex lives in run-down neighborhoods, where they get drunk, argue, fight, have sex, find and lose hope, kill (by accident), attempt suicide and run away. They also struggle mightily with the meaning of love, not the romance-novel type but the what-would-Jesus-do type.

Mamma Mia!, the film of the international stage smash showcasing the greatest hits of ABBA, is like a party where everyone is so desperate to have a good time that it makes you miserable. With Meryl Streep as a former pop-rock star who now runs a decaying Greek tourist hotel and Christine Baranski and Julie Walters as her ex-band mates, the movie has a set of actresses who can sing and dance. But you won't be able to gauge their skill from the evidence here. The director, Phyllida Lloyd, encourages them to embellish their tunes with campy humor or belt them at the top of their lungs.

The two friends hung out at least twice a week. Brian O'Neil Jones, a popular high school coach, and Alfred Winborne Jr., a mortgage consultant, bonded on the basketball court eight years before they were together for the last time one night in November 2005. The two had just left a bar on a well-lighted street in Canton about 1:30 a.m. when a man approached them carrying a rifle with a scope. Winborne, testifying this week in the Baltimore Circuit Court trial of the man charged with killing Jones, said the armed man yelled a profanity and then fired four shots as the two friends ran in opposite directions.
