Alex Ovechkin

The Washington Capitals believe they have a Stanley Cup in their future. If so, prolific scorer Alex Ovechkin will certainly be a big reason why. Ovechkin, the National Hockey League’s (NHL’s) two-time defending Most Valuable Player (MVP), has almost singlehandedly elevated his team into the top echelon of championship contenders.

The Washington Capitals believe they have a Stanley Cup in their future. If so, prolific scorer Alex Ovechkin will certainly be a big reason why.

Caron Butler

Quite a few National Basketball Association players have had rough upbringings. But few have endured the hard times that Washington Wizards forward Caron Butler knew as a kid. He readily admits to being arrested at least a dozen times as a youth.

Joan Rivers

She is the consummate professional and, at 76 years of age, Joan Rivers is showing zero signs of slowing down. Rivers, who brings her comedy performance to the Avalon Theatre in Easton on April 23rd, has lived in the limelight for more than 40 years and is the exemplary “American working gal.”

Author Ellen Weber Libby

You’ve heard of the middle child, the one who gets lost in the shuffle. And you’ve heard of the only child, who may have a self-centered view of the universe. Birth order and the number of children in a family have long been recognized by psychologists as creating significant contributing factors in an individual’s emotional development.

Veteran News Anchor Tom Brokaw

Speaking to a packed house of Midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy, legendary newsman Tom Brokaw certainly demonstrated his mastery of public speaking 101: know your audience. “If I was giving this speech at the Air Force Academy, I’d have to speak much more slowly and use much smaller words,” he said to thunderous applause.

Author, Gene Baur

Gene Baur is the cofounder and president of Farm Sanctuary, an organization that seeks to change the way people think about and treat animals. Farm animals found in inhumane conditions are rescued and transported to one of the organization’s two sanctuaries— in Watkins Glenn, N.Y. and Orlend, Ca.—where they’re held while awaiting adoption.

Ravens’ Running Back Ray Rice

The diminutive Ray Rice doesn’t look like he belongs in the NFL. The Baltimore Ravens’ running back is listed at 5’-8”, but that’s probably generous. Rice’s size, though, didn’t keep him from making the 2010 Pro Bowl at age 22. He weighs 210 pounds. He led all NFL backs in catches (74) and finished second in all-purpose yards (2,041) to Tennessee’s Chris Johnson (2,509). Rice credits Ray Lewis with helping him achieve that success in only his second season.
