The first time Ben Heppner encountered opera - on a television broadcast when he was growing up in Western Canada - it all sounded totally alien. Years later, he not only got over that initial impression, but found himself hailed as one of the greatest gifts to the world of opera in a long, long time. If you go Ben Heppner, accompanied by pianist Thomas Muraco, will give a recital at 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Shriver Hall, the Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St. Tickets are $19 and $39.

I had the chance to catch up with WWE Hall of Famer Bret "Hitman" Hart. In the video interview, the Excellence of Execution talks about traveling through treacherous weather conditions while driving a van full of wrestlers for his father, Stu Hart, during his Stampede Wrestling days in Western Canada. He also talks about the discomfort of wrestling outdoors in extreme heat, especially India, where a match with Yokozuna results in one of the grossest things he'd ever seen in a ring during one of his matches.

Ah, the quintessential time-honored family road trip. Maui's Road to Hana? Sure, a nice family drive. The breathtaking Mount Blanc circuit of France, Italy and Switzerland? Without doubt, a family bucket list candidate. But for my tastes nothing can hold a candle to the diamond ring of family circuit routes. Leaving from Vancouver, British Columbia, this fantabulous trip northeast to the Canadian Rockies, then west to the Pacific Ocean and then by ferry back to Vancouver will squeeze reluctant oohs and aahs from the moodiest, most text-addicted teen.

For the 6,000 Catholics attending Youth and Family Encounter 2002 at the Baltimore Convention Center this weekend, the emphasis was on family, and was never more apparent than at a Mass celebrated yesterday morning by Cardinal William H. Keeler. Hundreds wore the event's signature yellow T-shirt with "Family" encircled on the back. Couples prayed with their children and grandchildren. Most of those in attendance were members of an international conservative movement known as Legion of Christ and a branch of the organization known as Regnum Christi.

Another so-called "Alberta clipper" storms is expected to pass through the region starting Monday afternoon or evening, potentially affecting the evening rush hour.

COMPLETE this sentence: I would be interested in a presidential candidate who: 1) would give us a first model instead of a first lady, 2) would be dogged by old photos of himself in a Speedo and feather boa or 3) thinks -- or at any rate once thought -- the United States should annex western Canada to get more white people.The Reform Party started out as a cracked egg laid by the cackling Ross Perot. This time around, it shows signs of frying itself.The pity in this theater of political absurdity is that the party never really honored the many desperately earnest folks to whom it seemed to promise an alternative to the influence-peddling, money-grubbing and slick insincerities of workaday politics.

This morning's light snowfall came as a surprise to many and snarled the morning commute, and more systems like it could be on the way over the next week, forecasters say. Signs aren't pointing to any major storms, though. National Weather Service forecasters are calling for snow chances Saturday night into early Sunday as well as Monday night through Wednesday, in what the weather service's Baltimore/Washington office is calling an "active winter pattern. " For the Saturday-to-Sunday event, accumulations of 1-2 inches are expected across the Baltimore area.
