Schmoke, said the school was considering discontinuing the freshman and sophomore classes and again becoming an upper-division college that enrolled only juniors and seniors.

A second teenager has admitted to having a role in the firebombing of a Piney Orchard townhouse, a crime that was intended as retaliation for the May 30 homicide of a Crofton youth. In an Anne Arundel County Juvenile Court hearing last week, the boy, 15, made the equivalent of a guilty plea to conspiracy to commit arson. Like the other back-seat passenger who admitted to participating, he agreed to testify against any of the others. He is scheduled to be sentenced later this month. He was released with electronic monitoring to relatives who do not live in the community, according to Kimberly DiPietro, assistant state's attorney.

In emails, on Facebook and on the party Web page, the state GOP used the logo to invite people to "an afternoon of Ravens football and Republican Party politics" during Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

The NFL will suspend first-time offenders for six games. A second violation would result in a lifetime ban, though players could file for reinstatement after one year.

After being traded in December because the Orioles didn't want to spend an estimated $10 million in arbitration on a closer, Jim Johnson returned to Camden Yards on Friday wearing the green and gold of the Oakland Athletics. “It's a little different. I mean, a lot of memories,” said Johnson, who was drafted by the Orioles in 2001, made his big league debut in 2006 and was a key member of the bullpen since 2008. “It's obviously different going into a different clubhouse. It's cool.” Johnson came back Friday not as the A's closer but as a struggling reliever who lost his closer role after blowing one save, losing two games and allowing seven runs over his first five outings.
