As last weekend's performance of the Lewitzky Dance Company attested, the new Gordon Center for Performing Arts is a well-appointed theater nicely suited to viewing dance.With good sight lines, comfortable seats and a stage that could hold Ms. Lewitkzy's company with ease, the only thing out of whack was the sound of the stage manager's directions, which could be consistently heard over the music.Ms. Lewitzky, a veteran choreographer who has a solid following for her abstract works, presented three dances for her Los Angeles-based company.

Maryland officials should get more economic bang from the Wallops Flight Facility — just over the line in Virginia — by capitalizing on space tourism and the potential from unmanned aircraft, according to a new study. The report, commissioned by the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, said the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's complex on Wallops Island already has an effect on Maryland's Eastern Shore. But there's potential for more. One possibility: attracting more people to see rockets blasted into space from Wallops.

"Zod Wallop," by William Browning Spencer. St. Martin's Press. 288 pages. $21.95 You don't have to be twisted to write for children, but it helps. By all reports Lewis Carroll had more than a soft spot for little girls. A. A. Milne appears to have been a weird father, Roald Dahl, a monster.Harry Gainsborough, the hero of "Zod Wallop," is squarely in the tradition - a tormented, guilt-ridden soul who writes books for kids and suffers a delusionary sense of his own power. The guilt stems from the death of his beloved daughter by drowning, which causes him to lose his heart, his mind, his ability to write and his wife.

Georgetown had won 14 consecutive games in this series until Mount St. Mary's won 14-6 on March 12. It was the Mountaineers' first victory over the Hoyas since 1991. Mount St. Mary's, which was on the wrong end of a 16-3 rout by No. 11 Maryland last Saturday, is trying to avoid its first 0-2 start since 2011. That task might be even more difficult considering the players who contributed to the 14 goals and six assists in last year's win have all graduated. This will be Georgetown's season opener.

A strong ebb current, a heavy chop, and gusty breeze from the north added up to a real challenge for the 67 starters in Saturday's Magothy River Sailing Association 17th Annual Race to Baltimore.Some sailors coming up the bay from Annapolis to the starting area north of Baltimore Light found just getting there on time to be more of a challenge than they could manage, in fact, and were so late for their starts they went on to the Inner Harbor finish rendezvous without sailing the 14.3-mile race.

Electronic Arts' Def Jam Fight for New York is a gritty, urban fistfight. You fight in a New York underworld of thugs and gangsters, trying to make a name for yourself. Each win earns you cash to spend on clothes, jewelry, tattoos and trinkets. You can get up to four players involved in a fight, but there's no online play. The fights are plenty of fun, even against the computer, and button-mashing does no good. To win a match, you have to knock out your opponent, and to do that you have to execute a specific move.

Once upon a time, when a journalist's dream was more apt to center on the Great American Novel than lucrative dot-com opportunities, a young writer named John Douglass Wallop III tried his hand at fiction. He was so serious about his craft that he gave up journalism to work in his father's Washington insurance agency, selling policies by day and writing at night. His first book, "Night Light," received some nice critical notices, but it came and went without much fanfare. In 1953, he was at work on a second book, when he set it aside and dashed off, in just three months, a novel devoted to his lifelong obsession: the Washington Senators.

Big red is right. This blend of zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon and valdiguie packs a wallop as it delivers a mouthful of spicy, robust, meaty flavors with hints of chocolate, blueberry and tomato. It's a little rustic, but graceful nevertheless, like a man who can wear cowboy boots with a tux and carry it off.

This week, a commercial "freighter" rocket that began its journey into space last Wednesday about 35 miles south of Ocean City is due to dock with the International Space Station, delivering 1,300 pounds of cargo. It will eventually be loaded up with trash and sent on its way to burn up on atmospheric re-entry over the South Pacific. Cygnus isn't the first unmanned rocket to be launched out of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va., which has been in the research rocket business since World War II. But it may be among the most highly anticipated.

A commercial rocket launch that was scheduled for Wednesday but aborted has been pushed to Friday, at the earliest. The next attempt is "tentatively" set for Friday, assuming that issues forcing the delay are resolved, according to Orbital Sciences Corp., the Virginia company behind the launch. NASA hired Orbital Sciences to ferry supplies to the International Space Station via an unmanned spacecraft. The launch was scrubbed because of " a premature separation of a launch pad umbilical connection to the Antares upper stage used for data communications," the company said.

The five-rocket launch scheduled for Wednesday night at NASA'sWallops Flight Facility is now slated for Sunday night -- but keep your eye on that launch schedule. The launch date has changed three times now: first to Friday night, then to Saturday night and now to Sunday night. If the weather still isn't right, the date could change again. The clear skies needed for launch also allow for a view of the rockets from across the East Coast. Observers will be able to see white clouds the rockets are emitting into the jet stream to help scientists study its wind patterns.

The visitors center there will open at 10 p.m. Wednesday for spectators. The rockets are being used to study the winds of the jet stream. Once the rockets reach the intended height, they will release milky white clouds that scientists will be able to see from space.

The Ravens trounced the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, and there are indications they are peaking, but it is hard to tell. You like what you saw out of them. They had balance on an offense that produced 146 yards rushing and 227 passing. The Ravens' defense physically dominated the Colts up front with four sacks, while holding Indianapolis to 167 yards of total offense. But here's the rub: The Colts are terrible. They are pathetic and one of the worst teams in NFL history, including some of those from Cincinnati.
