Orioles reliever Brian Matusz remembers laughing when he opened the piece of fan mail in Sarasota, Fla., last month. He immediately showed the contents of the manila envelope to Orioles head athletic trainer Richie Bancells before informing manager Buck Showalter. "I'm like, Richie, can you believe this?' Then I told Buck about it," Matusz said recently, chuckling. "That's probably the most unusual, interesting item any fan has ever asked me to sign. I thought it was hilarious.

Veronica Alford had been friends with Edith Turnage for 20 years. After Turnage's daughter died in an accidental shooting at the hands of her friend's son, Alford sent flowers, balloons and a teddy bear. She asked about the funeral but never heard back. Turnage could not fathom the charges that would be leveled against her friend. How could Alford have helped drag 13-year-old Monae Turnage's body down an alley and bury it in pile of trash? How could she have arranged to hide the gun that killed the girl?

If you think baton twirlers do nothing more than march down Main Street on the Fourth of July and throw a baton up in the air, take a closer look. That's exactly what Laurel's Kristi Alford made her friends do. "They used to make fun of me all the time," says Alford, the 1996 Miss Majorette of America. "They had no idea what twirling was all about, so I made them come to a competition." Now nobody makes fun of Alford, who began twirling at age 3. In the Alford household on the Howard County side of Laurel, twirling is a family affair.

I can hear 'em now. "He's a good guy"; "He's a family man"; "He'll govern like a moderate"; "It will be so good for the country"; "He's post-partisan. " That the election of a mixed-race candidate for president sent positive messages about America around the world is without question; that the election occurred less than 50 years after the end of Jim Crow was stunning - and spoke volumes about how far we have progressed on race and politics. Yet, the entire post-partisan narrative was quite a stretch (and silly to boot)

The mother of one of the boys who accidentally shot 13-year-old Monae Turnage helped drag the girl's body into an alley behind the home and then hid the gun in a police officer's car, authorities alleged in court papers filed Friday. The new accusations against Veronica Alford, 49, place an adult squarely in the middle of what had been portrayed as a horrific but youthful mistake. The March shooting prompted outrage from community members and city officials, as well as an investigation into the actions of a city police officer.

Henry Alford, author of 2012's “Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That? A Modern Guide to Manners,” will join the Howard County Library System for its Choose Civility symposium Oct. 11 at the Miller Branch Library in Ellicott City. The writer is known for his contributions to The New Yorker, The New York Times and Vanity Fair and is often heard on National Public Radio. Alford says manners are “a perennially interesting topic to a large group of people because we've all been dealt misdeeds and everyone has a grievance.” He agreed to share more of his perspectives on civility with Howard Magazine.

After Anne Arundel County prosecutors threatened to appeal a judge's ruling that threw out her confession in a fatal stabbing, a Laurel woman entered into a plea Tuesday that will send her to prison for between eight and 10 years. Latisha Montia Adams, 23, entered an Alford plea to second-degree murder in the killing Dec. 21, 2009, of Jamal Medina, 22. That is identical to the plea her sister, Patrice Dove, made last month in the killing of Medina, who prosecutors said owed Dove money for drugs.

A Laurel supermarket clerk accused, along with her sister, of killing a man who prosecutors say owed her money for drugs entered a plea to second-degree murder Tuesday that will get her between eight and 10 years in prison. Patrice Rashah Dove, 22, cried as she entered an Alford plea before Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge William Mulford II, meaning she did not admit to killing Jamal Medina, 22, of Laurel on Dec. 21, 2009, at the Maryland City Plaza Shopping Center, but acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence against her for a conviction.

University of Maryland lacrosse coach Dave Cottle didn't have to think long and hard about the question. The Terrapins are playing their best lacrosse of the season at the right time, but they can approach new heights. "If Harry Alford could carry this team, it would take our team to another level," said Cottle, when asked about Alford's potential. That would place No. 2 seed Maryland somewhere in the same universe with No. 1 seed Virginia, which is clearly the class of a final four that also consists of Syracuse and Massachusetts.

One critical piece of a young defense has been established at Maryland, where the No. 3 Terrapins clearly have settled on a goalkeeper. First, sophomore Harry Alford earned the starting job over junior Teddy Murphy. Then, in the season opener and his first career start, Alford hung a 25-save masterpiece on visiting, eighth-ranked Georgetown. Maryland's offense on Saturday hardly took a back seat in a 13-6 rout of the Hoyas. Eleven players scored, and the Terps converted seven of 10 shots in the third quarter to take a commanding, 12-3 lead.
