The Warriors will reportedly replace head coach Don Nelson with assistant Keith Smart with the move coming on Monday at the team's media day. Several media sources reported the move Thursday. Nelson, who has one season and $6 million left on his contract with the team, will reportedly resign and agree to a settlement package. It'll be the first big front office move for the Warriors under their new ownership group. The 70-year-old Nelson is the NBA's all-time wins leader as a head coach.

Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

At the Towson University football team's home opener late last month, the loudest cheers arguably came for the smallest athlete on the field. With the current Towson gymnastics team by her side, 24-year-old alumna Kacy Catanzaro stood in the endzone and waved to the roughly 8,000 fans in attendance. "Let's go, Kacy! Let's go, Kacy!" the student section began to chant as Catanzaro — dressed in a black top, denim shorts and boots pulled up to her knees — flashed her megawatt smile.

From 1979 to 1984, Chinese sculptor Hou Rong worked at the site of the 210 B.C. grave of Chinese emperor Ch'in Shih Huang Ti, where an army of 6,000 terra cotta warriors and horses was discovered in 1974. The sculptor, who made numerous reproductions of the figures, is now in this country, working at Towson State University toward his master of fine arts degree. One of his life-size reproductions of a warrior is currently on view at the Folk Art Gallery, along with other contemporary works.

Anyone can understand that sharing experiences helps people bond, especially when it involves an outdoors activity. But doing so by teaching wounded veterans to kill innocent whitetail deer with bows and arrows is inhumane and should stop ("Helping veterans to recover with hunting," Aug. 11). Helping our nation's wounded warriors rehabilitate is a noble calling. Taking them into the woods together, rebuilding their self-confidence, enjoying a sunrise, and watching wildlife can only help.

Root for Don Nelson. Root for him as you did for Raymond Burr and those peasants in the first "Godzilla" movie. Root for him not to fall to the monsters of greed, immaturity and selfishness supposedly threatening the tranquillity we have known as the Fan-tastic game, the NBA.They come with frightening names like Isaiah Rider, Derrick Coleman and Chris Webber, and the notion is that their behavior is pushing the NBA periously close to the basketball apocalypse.I'm...

If you are black and have done business with the city or the state - or have even thought of it - you probably know the name Arnold Jolivet. If you are a politician who has anything at all to do with granting government contracts, you definitely know that name. People like me, on the other hand, who go about our lives without giving a thought about procurement processes, probably know nothing of the man that a city official, a construction contractor and a staunch critic of city government admiringly described to me as a warrior.

She stands just five-feet tall and weighs less than some pumpkins, but that didn't stop Kacy Catanzaro from dominating last night's episode of "American Ninja Warrior. " A Towson University grad, Catanzaro became the first woman to complete one of the final obstacle courses and advance to the show's ultimate challenge, Mt. Midoriyama. Catanzaro, who is apparently 95 percent muscle and 5 percent beaming smile, used skills she honed on Towson's gymnastics team to tackle obstacles such as the salmon climb, the swinging frames, the spider climb, and other feats rarely seen outside of a Spider-Man film.

Chesapeake's Drew Spinnenweber has pitched like the ace he is all year. Friday night was no exception. The senior worked himself out of jams in the first and fifth innings and struck out 13 batters to lead the No. 4 Cougars of Anne Arundel County to a 2-0 win over Montgomery County's Sherwood (15-8) in the Class 4A state title game at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. Spinnenweber helped his own cause with a double to start off the third. It was the only inning the Cougars scored in, and the only extra base hit in the game.
