Frank Seifert says he does not remember exactly when he got involved with Bello Machre, a Glen Burnie-based nonprofit organization that provides daily assistance and housing to the physically and mentally disabled across Anne Arundel County. Some might deem that as remarkable as his generosity -- donating $300 a month to the program for more than six years. "The Bible says if you give, you get," Seifert said. "I'm just returning what I've been given." Tomorrow, Bello Machre will express its thanks at a dedication ceremony naming one of its group homes for Seifert -- the first contributor to receive such an honor.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Remember Nick Dougherty ? How about Justin Hicks ? It wouldn't be the first round of a U.S. Open if the top of the leaderboard didn't feature at least one unknown. And this Open did not disappoint. When the week began, Rafael Cabrera-Bello simply hoped to find his golf clubs. They got lost en route from Madrid to Philadelphia, so he couldn't take part in a Monday practice round. He walked much of the course instead. So maybe practice is overrated.

Melony Ghee Griffith of Prince George's County to publicly retract her allegation that Jeb Bello, who is white and was fired several days after the incident, discriminated against her and her companion.

"When you see how lives are really changed by people caring for people," said Bob Ireland, executive director of Bello Machre, "the name takes on real meaning." Bello Machre's mission is to provide comfortable, secure homes for developmentally disabled persons and to give them a chance, while living with a trained residence manager, to experience life to its fullest.
