Del. Jon S. Cardin, the front-runner to become Maryland's next attorney general, calls himself an active legislator who believes "nothing is more sacred to democracy than the right to vote. " But when it came time to cast votes in the House Ways and Means Committee in Annapolis this year, the Baltimore County Democrat repeatedly failed to show up. General Assembly records reviewed by The Baltimore Sun show that during the 90-day legislative session, Cardin missed about 120 out of 164 committee votes - nearly 75 percent.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - ESPN college basketball analyst Doris Burke said Saturday that she is disheartened by Maryland's impending move to the Big Ten Conference and wishes that financial considerations didn't have to tear leagues apart. “I get that, financially, Maryland couldn't turn it down,” Burke said in an interview on the eve of the Final Four, which ESPN is broadcasting. “My question is, are we ever going to get to a point where an athletics director and a president says, 'I don't care about the money.

The pending arrival of new Ravens safety Darian Stewart comes with a scouting report. Stewart has built a reputation as a tough guy with a lot of pop and as a tackler who excels in run support. However, Stewart isn't known for making a ton of plays in pass coverage despite his above-average speed. "Good safety, good player," said retired former St. Louis Rams defensive tackle D'Marco Farr, an analyst for the organization's broadcasting team. "Good, smart, instinctive guy, underrated hitter.

The days of the conventional supermarket are numbered. Safeway Inc.'s announcement Thursday that private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management would acquire the company in a deal valued at about $9.4 billion is the latest sign from the troubled grocery industry that supermarkets have fallen out of style. The deal combines Safeway with Cerberus' Albertsons chain, creating a dominant grocery franchise on the West Coast. It also creates a grocery network of more than 2,400 stores and 250,000 employees. Safeway has more than 20 stores in the Baltimore area.

The Ravens are optimistic they will find the type of wide receiver they are looking for this offseason. And after listening to Mike Mayock's conference call on Tuesday, you can see why they are so confident. The respected NFL Network analyst feels this is “the best wide receiver draft” that he has “seen in years.” The top wide receiver in Mayock's eyes is Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins, but he predicts that Watkins will be “long gone” before the Ravens are on the clock with the 17th overall pick in May's draft.

Months before the NFL draft launches in May, the Ravens are unofficially on the clock. The Ravens are in major need of reinforcements, particularly at wide receiver, offensive line and tight end, after a disappointing 8-8 season in which they failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since the 2007 season. As the Ravens arrived Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine to evaluate college football prospects, draft analysts are praising this incoming rookie class as the kind that can provide an immediate influx of talent.

The NFL scouting combine is in a couple of weeks, unofficially starting the league's silly season. But even though the NFL draft is still three long months away, draft analysts continue to update their mock drafts.   The last time I rounded up a few notable mock drafts, back in early January , many draft analysts linked the Ravens to Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, whose size and strong hands could make him a fit. This time around, I read several mock drafts that had the Ravens taking Evans with their first-round pick.
