A U.S. Naval Academy midshipman died Saturday after slipping into a coma following a skateboarding injury, the third midshipman to expire due to injury in two months. Hans Loewen, 20, of Hampstead, N.C., was camping at Assateague State Park with other midshipmen when he was injured, Naval Academy officials said. He was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, but he did not wake from his coma.

Don's on the mend. Sort of. It was an admittedly slow yet steady start to the new season. That's how it should be with recovery. There was no jumping into massive transformations or profound moments of clarity. It was more of a catch-up to see how the dust has settled - or kicked up - in the past two months (in "Mad Men" time, of course). Are Don and Megan still together? Have SC&P rehired Don? Are Peggy and Joan this close to starting their firm to prove those chauvinists wrong?

Qualifying for the Boston Marathon was not on Michelle Hollingsworth's radar when she broke into a jog at the start of the Marine Corps Marathon in 2012, but it sure was 3 hours and 36 minutes later. The 47-year-old hadn't expected to cross the finish line in Rosslyn, Va., so quickly, fast enough to qualify for the prestigious 26.2-mile race that begins in Hopkinton and ends on Boylston Street in Boston. The disappointment came later, when she found that registration had closed for the 2013 Boston Marathon.

Kudos to Maryland lawmakers and the governor for taking action to remove the criminal penalties associated with the personal possession by adults of small quantities of marijuana ( "A step toward sanity on marijuana," April 14). Adults who choose to consume cannabis should not face arrest, prosecution and the stigma of a criminal record for ingesting a substance that is, by any objective measure, safer than either alcohol or tobacco. Similar legislation to decriminalize marijuana has already been enacted in 17 states, including Connecticut, Maine, Mississippi, Nebraska and Ohio.

Nearly a month after Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 vanished, a team of Maryland engineers detected the pings from a flight data recorder that narrowed the search area to a more manageable yet still vast swath of the Indian Ocean. Working from an Australian warship involved in the search, a crew of nine from Phoenix International in Prince George's County deployed a U.S. Navy listening device to the depths of the ocean in the hunt for a signal from the doomed jetliner's black box. Tapped by the Navy to assist Malaysian, Chinese and Australian officials in the search, the team and their equipment had flown from an office and warehouse in Largo nearly two weeks earlier.

BOSTON -- Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, who left Sunday night's game in the seventh inning with a strained right hamstring, said following the game that he doesn't know the severity of the injury. Hardy has already missed six games this season with lower back spasms, and while he has recovered from those issues, he said they might have had something to do with his hamstring injury. "Never had this before,” Hardy said. “When I came back from the back thing, I felt this hamstring was really tight.

Despite - or perhaps because of - the death of sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel on Monday morning, Goucher will play host to Landmark Conference rival Catholic at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Thursday. Coach Brian Kelly said the Gabriel family has encouraged the team to play the game as originally scheduled. "They're so strong in their faith that they believe there's a plan for Matthew and that he is with God now,” Kelly said on Tuesday night. “Their words to me directly were, 'Matthew would have wanted you to continue to play the game that he loved, and he would want his teammates to continue to play the game that he loved and to continue to do what you do, and that's life, to live life because he lived his life to the fullest.' He's always been a selfless human being, and he will be terribly missed physically.

The company this week released its list of the safest places to live in Maryland. Movoto said its report looked at places with populations of at least 5,000 and then ranked them based on FBI crime statistics in 2012.

I f you watch Spike TV's "Bar Rescue"you know how hard Jon Taffer's job is. Recruited by drinkeries, Taffer not only revamps bars' design, menus and business practices, but deals with bullheaded owners. He's already had to fix a pirate bar (!) in Silver Spring (!!) for the premiere of Season 2 last week. But for this Sunday's episode (9 p.m.), he attempts to fix Fells Point's J.A. Murphy's, which became Murphy's Law ... and then closed. What went down? We decided to awkwardly ask Taffer.
