Pikesville High School senior Josh Borris is working this summer, but he won't be paid. Completing a second summer as an intern at Correct Rx Pharmacy Services Inc. in Linthicum Heights, he said, is more valuable than earning money at a traditional summer job. "I want to one day be a pharmacist researcher figuring out how drugs interact with the human body," he said of his summer work at the institutional pharmacy company. "This internship is an experience for the future. " Even as fewer teens seek to work during the summer, some like Borris are pursuing internships or other experiences they hope will give them a leg up on their intended careers.

Well what do you know! The United States of America is a team player in the battle against Moammar Gadhafi. Not the owner, the coach or even the quarterback; just a linebacker.

Ehrlich Jr. — will face a roughly $1.6 billion gap between expected revenues and planned spending.

Immigration reform is the right issue — at the wrong time. It's the right issue because, now that substantial health care reform has been achieved, perhaps this nation's greatest remaining travesty is that more than 10 million people live among us in a shadow world of fear and hardship. The vast majority of illegal immigrants stay out of trouble and work hard to support their families, yet most endure poverty, hostility and constant anxiety about being torn from their loved ones and deported.

At the lectern stood Mike Shanahan , who has a five-year, $35 million contract that gives him final authority over football decisions as head coach and executive vice president of the Washington Redskins. Seated at a nearby table was Bruce Allen , the first general manager Dan Snyder has hired in 11 years of owning the team. And nowhere on the stage was Snyder, who sat next to his wife, Tanya , as a member of the audience in the Redskins Park auditorium in Ashburn, Va. It was the first time he hasn't introduced a new coach, a powerful symbol of how the balance of power has shifted within a proud franchise.

The friendship that bloomed between Ravens coach John Harbaugh and the Minnesota Vikings' Brad Childress was rooted in the meeting rooms and hallways of the Philadelphia Eagles' training facility when both men toiled as assistant coaches for Andy Reid. But that relationship was further enhanced outside the Eagles' building when the duo took part in long-distance runs during lunchtime. "I'd say we've shared a lot of the same kind of ideas about football over the years," Harbaugh recalled.
