Willie E. "Bill" Blackburn, a decorated merchant marine veteran and a longtime manager for Firestone Tire, died Wednesday from complications after surgery for an aneurysm. He was 81 and lived in Carney. During World War II, Mr. Blackburn was a lieutenant aboard a Liberty ship that carried supplies on the dangerous "Murmansk Run," between Britain and Russia, braving polar ice, storms and submarines to support Russia's efforts in the war against Germany. For his efforts, Mr. Blackburn received the Russian Medal from the Soviet government, which might have failed in its defense against Hitler's armies if it hadn't been for the American aid shipped to the port of Murmansk.

As talented as Brian Matusz is, the Orioles fully expected the 23-year-old rookie pitcher would have days like Sunday, when he was knocked around by the Minnesota Twins for six earned runs in 3 2/3 innings. They also carried the reasonable expectation that the lineup would hit enough to keep the Orioles in most games and take pressure off some of their young starters. In the Orioles' 6-0 loss to the Twins before a sellout crowd of 38,641 on Sunday at Target Field, Matusz authored his first poor outing of 2010.

Discoveries by Nobel laureate Carol W. Greider and her colleagues have led to advances toward potential cures or treatments for certain types of cancer, and for a growing list of diseases rooted in malfunctions of the DNA-protecting enzyme, called telomerase, that she discovered. In cancer, the overproduction of telomerase enables tumor cells to maintain unchecked reproduction, and researchers are trying to inhibit the telomerase as a way to shut down the tumor and allow it to die. One experiment involves a potential vaccine to battle runaway cell division in metastatic breast cancer.

JOHN A. BLACKBURN, 67 University of Virginia dean of admissions John A. Blackburn, the University of Virginia's dean of admissions since 1985, died Tuesday of cancer at his home in Charlottesville, Va. He had planned to retire in June. Mr. Blackburn pushed for U.Va. to boost its financial aid and abolish its early-decision admissions policy, which he believed gave an unfair advantage to students who could afford to commit to attending without first seeing a financial aid offer. He traveled extensively to promote the AccessUVa financial-aid program for students from lower-income backgrounds.

When Tony Blackburn decided to take off a year as C. Milton Wright baseball coach to spend more time with his family, he turned the reins over to assistant Joe Stetka. Under Stetka, the Mustangs did not miss a beat. He led them to the Class 4A state final for the third time since 2004 with just three returning starters. "Coach Blackburn is coming back, but I have enjoyed this and I've said all along, it's been his ship and I'm just steering it for him," Stetka said. Stetka guided the Mustangs to a 19-5 record and No. 3 ranking.
