Starting next week with its production of Nina Raine's "Tribes," starring deaf actor John McGinty, Everyman Theatre will offer personal handheld closed captioning devices for all performances. In a statement released Wednesday, founding artistic director Vincent Lancisi said that the company, "an early adopter of this new technology," is "committed to embodying the promise of our name - Everyman Theatre. " "For the first time - long overdue - we are able to invest in technology that says to the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities: 'We value you and we want you to be a part of the Everyman family' ...

The Orioles have been busy during their first spring training camp under manager Buck Showalter. But the Orioles' infield quartet of Mark Reynolds, Derrek Lee, J.J. Hardy, and Brian Roberts found some time on Sunday to stare off into space (well, unless they were all lackadaisically chasing after the same pop-up). This random photo from The Baltimore Sun's Karl Merton Ferron demands another photo caption challenge, and I'm hoping I get more responses this time around than I did two weeks ago . And that's where you guys come in, and I know you will come through with some good ones this time around.

The National Association of the Deaf said it has filed suit in federal court to compel the University of Maryland to provide captioning on scoreboards during athletic events at Byrd Stadium and Comcast Center. The association said on its website that the suit is being brought on behalf of two deaf fans, Sean Markel and Dr. Joseph Innes, who regularly attend football and basketball games. It says the absence of captioning discriminates against the deaf and hard of hearing who can't hear announcements made over the public-address system.

Alabama football coach Nick Saban was at Gilman Wednesday night to take in the Greyhounds' basketball victory over Calvert Hall . Saban, of course, is in the process of wooing Gilman football/basketball standout Cyrus Jones to join the Crimson Tide. The All-Metro Offensive Football Player of the Year is also considering Ohio State (who had assistant Luke Fickell at the game), Auburn, Virginia Tech and Maryland. But that wasn't the only star power at Gilman, as Cal Ripken Jr. and his wife Kelly were there to cheer on their son, Ryan, who also plays for the Greyhounds.

This is Netherlands cricketer Ryan Ten Doeschate. He has a jockstrap on his head. I have no idea why, but he does. So let's have some fun with this one. This photo from AFP/Getty's Manan Vatsyayana is perfect for a photo caption challenge, which is good because I have two pairs of tickets to this weekend's 2010 Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic to give away to our winning captioners. I received about 20 submissions for last week's challenge . Let's see if we can top that total this week with some clever and clean captions for this photo of a jock wearing his jock.

Answering a question by "CBS Morning News" anchor Harry Smith about women in politics, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher declared, "I regard myself as being able to hold my own."Few familiar with Ms. Thatcher's steely resolve were puzzled by this response. But for the deaf or hard of hearing, the closed-caption, written words on the screen had the so-called Iron Lady saying something completely baffling: "I regard myself as being elder of my home."For those watching CNN's coverage of the siege of the Russian Parliament, knowing President Boris Yeltsin's whereabouts depended on one's ability to hear -- or to guess.

Pro-Israel protesters picketed outside The Sun building on Calvert Street yesterday over an incorrect caption published Sunday beneath a photograph of an Israeli policeman during recent violence in Jerusalem. The group of about 75 -- organized by the host of a local Jewish radio show -- was also angry about recent Sun editorials on unrest in the Middle East, which they assert are erroneous. They waved Israeli flags during the protest and condemned The Sun for "journalistic incompetence."

My business is located at 309 Main St., in Laurel. Outback Leather is a one-stop leather shop. We do everything from custom fitting boots and saddles, to the horse and rider, to while-you-wait shoe repair. Outback Leather has been on Main St. for over 20 years, 15 years in the formally Gayer's Saddlery Building. I just wanted to thank the Laurel Leader for its article, "20th century marathons found a starting line in Laurel" (April 4). It was very generous of the Leader to put a big picture of my building that covers almost half the page, and then give credit to another business, instead of a business that has been running for 20 years, as the building in the background.

There was a photo caption in the Sunday Sun article ("Landmark Measures for Maryland" April 7) about Senate President Mike Miller, House Speaker Michael E. Busch and Gov. Martin O'Malley. The caption stated that "When the three of us are on the same page," according to the governor, it would result in the passage of the governor's "sweeping agenda. " In reality, it's more like a steamroller agenda. In reference to the so-called sweeping agenda, yes, the residents of Maryland who initially trusted the Three Ms have been "swept" under the carpet.

Images of nearly 6,000 Baltimoreans are the life's work of a photographer who documented racial segregation and early civil rights protests, and also captured candid moments of now-anonymous brides, classmates, football players and black residents of the city. But while Paul S. Henderson left what Maryland Historical Society curator Jennifer Ferretti calls an "unparalleled visual record of civil rights in Baltimore," he didn't leave behind captions. The names of his subjects aren't known, as Henderson didn't keep written files — or they didn't survive.

It's photo caption challenge time, Ravens fans. Whoever comes up with the best clean and clever caption for this Presswire photo from Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks wins tickets to the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center. I might also have tickets for the Army-Navy game at FedEx Field, but don't hold me to that.
