The recent article by Carrie Wells and Scott Calvert ("Ire grows after Towson president cuts two teams," March 24) neglected to capture the opinion of "some of Towson's most prominent and active alumni" who support President Maravene Loeschke's difficult decision to eliminate two men's sports teams. The Sun's editors should certainly be aware of alumni who understand and support the decision based on recent letters published in this newspaper. However, Ms. Wells and Mr. Calvert instead chose to focus on an alumnus who has a dissenting opinion.

Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia has always been a regional treasure for theatergoers, but the current production of "Memphis: The Musical" has a particular tie to our county with a trio of Anne Arundel Community College alumni offering stellar performances. Andre Hinds and Anwar Thomas of AACC Dance Company and Tobias Young of Opera AACC make memorable contributions to this show. Overall, this rendition of the 2010 Tony award-winning "Memphis" proves that no smash hit is too big for Toby's to produce with pizazz.

Morgan State University Alumni Association's Harford County Chapter held a meet and greet in Havre de Grace recently where the featured guest was the university's new president, David T. Wilson. Held at La Banque De Fleuve on May 29, the event was hosted by Morgan alumni County Executive David Craig and Bruce and Theresa Lewis of Total Urgent Care. Leaders of the local chapter and the national association are both hoping to increase enrollment and donations among the extensive network of Morgan alumni in Harford and Cecil counties, and having the opportunity to hear from and meet the new president certainly enhanced that effort, organizers said.

On Tuesday, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association named center fielder Adam Jones as the Orioles' recipient of the 2014 Heart and Hustle Award. The honor values athletes who “demonstrate a passion for the game of baseball and best embody the values, spirit and tradition of the game” and is the only big league award voted on by former players. Jones, along with the 29 winners from the other clubs, was selected for his work ethic and passion for baseball. “He represents all the best qualities of a teammate and competitor,” Brooks Robinson, Orioles Hall of Fame third baseman and Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association president, said in a statement.

As a former student athlete at the University of Maryland and current member of the Terrapin Club, I was shocked and angered by the University's move from the ACC to the Big Ten ("UM to leave ACC for Big Ten in '14," Nov. 20). Then I saw today's paper, revealing that of all the Big Ten schools, Maryland has the smallest endowment fund. And how much time Maryland coaches have to spend on fundraising at the expense of coaching. So while it's easy to blame the administration, it sounds like we Marylanders and Terrapin alumni haven't done a great job at supporting our university, and can blame ourselves as well.

Every time Alex Kurth spotted a Cardinal Gibbons High School classmate approaching the ITE Building at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, he would throw open the door and say, "Get in here!" with a grin and a firm handshake. "These are my people," he said. Kurth had just graduated from Lansdowne High School, but he was celebrating his three years at Gibbons, one of 13 schools the Archdiocese of Baltimore closed last year. About 80 young men earned diplomas from dozens of different high schools this year, but they consider themselves the Gibbons Class of 2011.

As a resident of Strawbridge Home for Boys in 1950, Jim Mathis, at age 13, found himself working on a full-fledged farm with cows, hogs, chickens and horses. He soon learned a few lessons. "Cows don't care what day it is. At the same time every day, when it is time to milk, they come to the barn," Mathis, now 74, chuckled. "Farming is a 24-hour, seven days a week job. (Today), there's not a farmer amongst us. " That "us" is Mathis' fellow alumni from Strawbridge, a Methodist-run home in Eldersburg where boys between ages 6 and 18 were sent to live, from 1924 to the late 1950s, either because they were orphans, or their families couldn't care for them.

LAST SATURDAY, Cooksville High School alumni got together to reminisce and look toward the future. The classes of 1939 and 1949 celebrated their 60th and 50th anniversaries at a luncheon at the Sheraton Columbia Hotel overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi. Members of other classes joined them. Organizer Roger Estep said, "It's a great feeling to be able to visit with a group of people I first interacted with 50-some years ago." Cooksville High was the first high school for blacks in Howard County.

As Maryland prepares to move to the Big Ten this summer, games against the likes of Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers - in addition to its traditional series with Johns Hopkins - are tantalizing matchups on the upcoming schedule. But who the Terps can retain from their days in the Atlantic Coast Conference could be just as compelling. For decades, the program battled with Duke, North Carolina and Virginia. And when Notre Dame and Syracuse joined the league for the 2014 campaign, the contests were must-see opportunities for fans.

For 24 straight hours next weekend, hockey players will be passing, checking and taking shots on goal during an end-of-season fundraiser to benefit wounded members of the military. "Hockey for Heroes" was the brainchild of Amy Hitt, an Annapolis hockey mom who inspired by the annual "Shootout for Soldiers" round-the-clock lacrosse game in Baltimore. "I was like, 'Man, we've got to do this,' " she said. "We've got the rink. Why don't we do it with hockey?" Hitt pitched her idea to fellow volunteers with Navy Youth Hockey, and after months of planning and seeking military approvals, the event is set for this Friday, March 15, through Saturday.

It has been four weeks since Navy added to its string of victories over Army in college football's most venerated rivalry, but the amicable athletic animosity between the nation's two oldest service academies does not begin and end on the gridiron. Their reciprocal mantras - "Go Navy, beat Army" and "Go Army, Beat Navy" - reverberate through their respective athletic programs all year round, and the intensity of the rivalry was very much on display for Saturday's nationally televised basketball doubleheader at Alumni Hall.

The LGBT community at Johns Hopkins University seems to be getting more organized by the minute. Since the spring, three new efforts to connect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students and community members have launched -- one led by university students, one by university alumni and one by the university itself. "It's the outcome of a lot of work from a lot of people," said Demere Woolway, 30, hired in July to be the first director of the university's new LGBTQ Life program . "There's sort of a confluence of things.

As the new network season arrives this week, a couple of old familiar Baltimore faces have caught my eye: Andre Braugher and Wendell Pierce. Happily, they are in two of the more promising series in an otherwise mostly lackluster field: “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (Fox) and “The Michael J. Fox Show” (NBC). Neither is the headliner. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” a sitcom set in a police precinct, stars Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta, a brilliant but impulsive young detective. “The Michael J. Fox Show” is a family comedy starring Fox as a New York anchorman who returns to the airwaves five years after retiring in the wake of being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
