If you want to meet the matriarch of Maryland's most famous baseball family, just go to a minor league game in Aberdeen. There she is on dozens of summer nights — plain-spoken and tough as leather but also open, happy to talk about the thousands of games she watched as the wife of a manager and the mother of infielders. Violet Ripken — "Vi" to anyone who knows her — married a baseball lifer, Cal Ripken Sr., and raised two future major leaguers, one of whom, Cal Ripken Jr. , went on to the Hall of Fame.

THE JUNE 25 article by the chairman of the board of St. Joseph Medical Center that appeared on this page trivializes the very real concerns that the Women's Law Center of Maryland and others expressed about plans to merge St. Joseph and the Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Towson.Primarily, we take exception to St. Joseph's claim that the opponents of the merger were responsible for "misinformation" and "emotion-laden misunderstandings."Cause for concernIn fact, many people became alarmed after learning of GBMC's March 11 announcement that it would have to discontinue performing abortions if it merged with St. Joseph.

Jennifer R. Terrasa describes herself as a "multitasker." She better be right. Terrasa has been nominated to the Howard County Planning Board, and her confirmation is expected early next month. That's the easy part. After that, she'll have to display the dexterity of a circus juggler, balancing her government responsibilities with those of two jobs, raising three young children and serving on two community boards. The amazing thing is, Terrasa isn't daunted. "I guess I'm not really concerned about it," she said.

Maryland is funny looking. Dangly parts on either end, a seemingly straight-edge top and a bottom that might have been drawn by a seismograph. The middle is filled with water -- the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the country. It took Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon four years to survey their way across the state in the mid-1700s. Today, a bicyclist would need about a week. But a walker could get from West Virginia to Pennsylvania via the town of Hancock in about 20 minutes. Just start at the Potomac River, walk up Main Street, turn left onto Pennsylvania Avenue until you reach the border.

IN AN Eastern European folk tale, one of the hero's tasks is to find the center of the world. After finding treasure and defeating a dragon, the hero returns to the king to claim his prize. "But where is the center of the world?" asks the king. "Why, wherever you are standing, my lord," replied the hero. With such an answer, he receives half the kingdom, the princess and, of course, the dragon's head over the fireplace. We can feel a bit like that king here in Savage. According to the 2000 census, we are the center of Maryland and not just because we stand here.
