Angel, an aging 17-year-old giraffe born and raised at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , was euthanized Tuesday, officials said. Angel long struggled with leg and back pain, which worsened recently, Dr. Ellen Bronson, the zoo's chief veterinarian, said in a statement. "While we were able to provide her with pain medicine which made her more comfortable, we realized that her quality of life was declining and the decision was made to euthanize her," Bronson said. She is the fourth older female giraffe to die at the zoo since 2008.

For each of the first three games of the season, No. 3 Johns Hopkins sent out the same starting midfield. That formula changed in Saturday's 15-9 victory over then-No. 6 Princeton. Rather than sending junior Bronson Kelly to join senior Rob Guida and sophomore Connor Reed on the first line, the Blue Jays (4-0) opted to have sophomore Holden Cattoni team with Guida and Reed. The trio of Guida, Reed and Cattoni is not an unfamiliar grouping, according to coach Dave Pietramala. “In games up until the Princeton game, we've mixed and matched,” he said Wednesday.

Maryland Zoo officials say they're still puzzled by the death of a 23-year-old chimpanzee during an examination Thursday. "This was quite sudden and not something we were expecting," Rebecca Gullott, the zoo's mammal collection and conservation manager, said yesterday. "This was a very sad occasion for us because we develop strong bonds to the animals we care for." Since Sunday, Rustie, the largest of 11 chimps in the zoo's troop, had been lethargic and reluctant to eat, zookeepers said.

Geeder thinks that the SEC will come storming in like the A-team when it finds out Atlantic Pacific is propping up both sides of the market on its Romanian investment deal. At the very least, Geeder thinks he can walk away cold with a few million bucks as soon as his company shares mature.

Information Resource Engineering Inc., a White Marsh-based computer security company that has bounced in and out of profitability in recent years, reported yesterday that it dipped back into the red during its second quarter despite doubling its revenues over the same quarter of 1994.IRE reported a net loss of $391,568, or 11 cents a share, compared with a loss of $152,500, or 5 cents a share, in last year's second quarter. Revenues jumped to $1.1 million from $518,074 a year earlier, but that growth fell far short of the quadrupling of revenue IRE enjoyed during the first quarter.

Apart from one urban cliffhanger set in a parking garage - it should have an afterlife as an action sequence long after the rest of this sorry celluloid has turned to soup - the grandiose, grimly silly revenge thriller Death Sentence will mostly benefit free-form players of "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon." Bacon can now readily be linked to nonpareil macho movie star Charles Bronson, because Death Sentence is based on novelist Brian Garfield's 1975 sequel to Death Wish, which Bronson and director Michael Winner turned into a hit vigilante film in 1974.

There was a sense throughout the industry that the Orioles' decision to back away from closer Grant Balfour after his failed physical in December could adversely affect the club going forward. That reality apparently played a part in them not landing veteran starter Bronson Arroyo, who signed a two-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Arroyo will get a guaranteed $23.5 million over two years -- $9.5 million each season and an $11 million option in 2016 that includes a $4.5 million buyout.

The Orioles' frustrating offseason got a little more frustrating Friday when the front office came up short in its pursuit of veteran pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who seemed to be the best fit of the remaining pitchers available in the free-agent market. Maybe pursuit isn't the right word, since the Orioles still seem to be playing hard to get just a few days before before pitchers and catchers report to spring training. Executive vice president Dan Duquette continues to insist that he wants to solidify the starting rotation, but it's fair to wonder at this point just how much the team really wants to win this year.

The Orioles' search for a starting pitcher to upgrade their rotation took a major hit Friday when right-hander Bronson Arroyo -- one of the club's top offseason targets -- chose the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Orioles. The two sides agreed to a two-year deal that will pay the veteran starter a guaranteed $23.5 million and could be worth $30 million if Arizona picks up a club option for 2016. Personally, I believed that Arroyo was the best available fit for the Orioles. Even though he turns 37 years old this month, his track record of durability -- he has pitched at least 199 innings in each of the last nine seasons -- is exactly what the Orioles need, an experienced frontline starter who can go deep into games every fifth day. I was told Friday that the Orioles' final offer was a competitive one and that, ultimately, Arroyo decided he wanted to remain in the National League, where he has pitched the past eight seasons with the Cincinnati Reds and 11 of his 14 seasons overall.

The Orioles were in the race for free-agent starter Bronson Arroyo, one of their top offseason targets, until the very end, but ultimately saw the right-hander agree to a two-year deal worth a guaranteed $23.5 million with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.  Arroyo will make $9.5 million in each of the next two seasons, and Arizona has an $11 million club option for 2016 or can buy him out for $4.5 million, ESPN reported. Arroyo selected the Diamondbacks over the Orioles, according to an industry source who added that the Orioles' final offer was “competitive.” Ultimately, Arroyo wanted to stay in the National League, the source said.

The Orioles are in continuing negotiations with free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo, according to an industry source. They are not the only serious suitor, however, as the sweepstakes for Arroyo appears to be nearing a close. The 36-year-old, who was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts with the Cincinnati Reds last year, is one of several high-profile starters still available on the market. It was believed that Arroyo, who turns 37 later this month, was seeking a three-year deal, but he seems to have softened that stance.

Curious to know exactly how it feels to jump into near-freezing water? Ask Josh Bronson - he's done it as a Polar Bear Plunge participant for the past two years and he's prepping for a third plunge this weekend. "It can feel like anything from taking ice and rubbing it all over your body [to] being stabbed repeatedly all over your body," said Bronson, 34, who lives in Westminster. The event benefits Special Olympics Maryland and features the majority of its plunges on Saturday at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis (for more information, go to plungemd.com)

Nearly every day in Maryland, people drag themselves to dental specialists to undergo the necessary ordeal of root canal surgery. But only one was performed yesterday at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. And the 500-pound patient was a first, even for veterinary dental surgeon Dr. Ira R. Luskin, who already counts lions and antelopes among his patients. Anoki, the zoo's 11-year-old female polar bear, slept through the entire two-hour procedure, splayed on her back with a dozen humans poking, prodding and watching her vital signs.

A 28-year-old chimpanzee named Charley died at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore over the weekend. Zoo spokeswoman Jane Ballentine said an initial necropsy provided no obvious explanation. The animal's remains have been sent to the Department of Comparative Medicine at Johns Hopkins University for closer examination and tests. Charley is the third adult chimp to die at the zoo in the past two years. The others were Joe, a male about 35, of peritonitis; and Rusty, 23, a female, of anesthesia complications after severe tonsillitis, said Dr. Ellen Bronson, senior veterinarian.
