Remember when President Barack Obama stuck a federal takeover of the student loan program into the "Affordable Care Act," AKA "Obamacare"? The dirty deed was accompanied by a promise that federal control would save taxpayer money and cut off all the private sector profiteers anxious to put the screws to student loan applicants. Now comes the Federal Reserve Bank of New York with a daunting report on the grand experiment: A startling 35 percent of student loan-borrowers under 30 years of age were 90 days or more late in their payments as of December 31, up from 26 percent in 2008 and 21 percent in 2004.

Former Orioles outfielder Endy Chavez has agreed to a minor league deal with the Kansas City Royals, according to multiple reports. Chavez, 34, played in 64 games for the Orioles last year, batting just .203 with a .236 on-base percentage. He signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Orioles last December but by August was taken off the club's roster after battling injury and ineffectiveness. He was added again in September when Nick Markakis broke his thumb. After Norfolk's Triple-A season ended, Chavez returned to his family in New York City, before being summoned back to Baltimore.

PRINCESS ANNE -- By 1997, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore plans to break ground for a multipurpose, 5,000-seat recreation center. And if the UMES basketball team continues its dramatic turnaround, it just might be called Rob Chavez Arena.Yes, it is quite unlikely. But so is the Hawks' record of 14-10 (9-5 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) less than two years after Chavez inherited a 3-25 team. The Hawks, who play at home against Coppin State on Saturday, have clinched their first winning regular-season record in 12 years.

WASHINGTON -- Many Republicans wondered how George W. Bush would respond to his first showdown with Democrats. Now they know. In deserting the cause of Linda Chavez, the man who hopes to emulate Ronald Reagan pulled off an imitation of George McGovern. As the labor secretary-designate, Ms. Chavez was the most provocative Bush nominee, and the most inspired. Big Labor feared she might challenge the privileges unions now enjoy -- such as immunity from election laws and Supreme Court edicts.

He was expected to spend the night at the hospital.

LAS VEGAS -- The record-setting, six-championship fight card Don King promoted at the MGM Grand Garden on Saturday night was billed as "Unfinished Business." But for King and star attraction Julio Cesar Chavez, a more appropriate title would have been "Vindication!""People said trying to sell a pay-per-view show in the States with eight Latin fighters who don't speak English was crazy. No one else wanted it," said King. "I had to reduce my promoter's fee. But I put my money where my mouth is."

LAS VEGAS -- A month ago at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium, Julio Cesar Chavez was greeted by the strangest sound he had ever heard. The four-time world champion was roundly booed by more than 100,000 of his countrymen after being introduced at an NFL preseason game between the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Oilers.Witnesses said Chavez smiled weakly, trying to hide his dismay and damaged ego.For more than a decade, while winning his first 89 professional fights and capturing titles at 130, 135 and 140 pounds, he was Mexico's patron saint of boxing, worshiped the same way American sports fans idolize Michael Jordan.

A wild windstorm swept through the nation's capital on Saturday, tossing broken tree limbs, downing power lines and forcing thousands of suburbanites to eat dinner by candlelight. On Sunday, with the skies sunny and mostly clear, the oppressive heat that hung on all summer was finally gone and the cooler air of approaching autumn turned the city into a pleasant place. Then, Monday arrived and with it came an infestation of representatives and senators. The lawmakers are taking a break from campaigning just long enough to make sure the government does not go broke by the end of the month.

The Orioles have made two roster moves today, selecting the contracts of outfielders Endy Chavez and L.J. Hoes  from Triple-A Norfolk. To make room on the 40-man roster, they have designated right-hander Kevin Gregg and infielder Ryan Adams for assignment.       Gregg's departure came as a shock to the other pitchers on the staff , and the reliever said he was "really disappointed" to be leaving the O's in the middle of a playoff push. Gregg went 3-2 with a 4.74 ERA in 40 appearances for the Orioles this season.

The Orioles are going for their fourth straight win tonight against the Mariners here at Camden Yards. Left hander Zach Britton (1-1, 8.35 ERA) hopes to rebound from his worst outing of the season. He lasted just 2 2/3 innings and allowed 7 runs and 7 hits in a 12-3 loss to the Yankees in the Bronx on Wednesday. “He's pitched well at times, and I have confidence that he will tonight,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “He's not walling around in self pity. I can tell you that.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Orioles purchased the contract of outfielder Nate McLouth on Saturday afternoon and have designated veteran outfielder Endy Chavez for assignment. The 30-year-old McLouth was told he would be added to the Orioles 25-man roster Friday afternoon before his game at Triple-A Norfolk, just hours before a clause in his contract went into effect at midnight which would have allowed him to opt out and become a free agent. The left-handed hitting McLouth arrived in St. Petersburg, Fla., late Friday night and was in Saturday's starting lineup, starting in left field and hitting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson.

The Obama administration's continued indifference to the actions of the Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez is dangerous on several fronts ("Hugo Chavez compares his rival to Mitt Romney," July 23). President Barack Obama recently made the startling comment that Mr. Chavez poses no threat to U.S. national security. Yet the Venezuelan dictator has shown off Russian weaponry and Iranian drones and extended his country's hospitality to Hezbollah, which has been permitted to establish training camps on Margarita Island.

Orioles outfielder Endy Chavez, who struggled with injuries and at the plate in the first half of the season, was activated off the disabled list Friday. Chavez, who hit .162 in 105 at bats while missing 47 days during two separate DL stints, said he hasn't felt this healthy since spring training and just wants to put a forgettable first half behind him. “I know I had a very difficult first half. I'm trying to get myself clear and leave that in the past and just start over in the second half,” Chavez said.

CARACAS, Venezuela --President Hugo Chavez has begun forging a single Socialist party among his varied supporters, one of his recent efforts to create momentum for far-reaching changes to Venezuela's political system that analysts say will effectively concentrate greater political power in his hands. Chavez announced the plan for the single party, called the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, in a speech last month to supporters here. He reminded them of his 23-percentage-point margin of victory when he was re-elected last month to a six-year term.

This afternoon at 2 p.m., the nine-man Division I basketbal committee will gather at a Kansas City, Mo., hotel, and commence arguing over the distribution of the 34 at-large bids to the NCAA tournament. The job becomes harder when upsets occur in mid-major tournaments, and Rob Chavez is delighted that his conference is one of those making the committee squirm. **TC Santa Clara was bumped to the at-large pool when it was beaten in the first round of the West Coast Conference tournament by Pepperdine.

Barring any physical setbacks, the Orioles plan on activating catcher Taylor Teagarden and outfielder Endy Chavez from the 15-day disabled list before Friday's game against the Detroit Tigers. Chavez (left hamstring) played in his second minor-league rehab game on Tuesday -- his first at low Class-A Delvarva -- going hitless in four at bats. He is 0-for-8 in two games. He is slated to play in two more games for the Shorebirds before joining the Orioles. Teagarden (back) is slated to join Chavez in the Delmarva lineup on Wednesday.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he's hoping to get right fielder Nick Markakis (wrist surgery), catcher Taylor Teagarden (back) and outfielder Endy Chavez (hamstring) back after the All-Star break. All three could head to Double-A Bowie for rehab assignments by the weekend. Teagarden, who has been out since spring training, caught a Gulf Coast League game today and will join the Baysox on Thursday. Markakis and Chavez could head to Bowie by Friday. Teagarden's impending return is an interesting one. It appears he would join the team immediately once he's ready physically, signaling the end of Ronny Paulino's time with the Orioles.
