In today's world with so much focus on negative news, it was indeed inspiring to read Susan Reimer 's article in The Sun that told the story of members of the Naval Academy who visit aging and dying veterans to thank them for serving our country ( "Naval Academy students give aging veterans a final salute," May 4). To show members of the "greatest generation" that their efforts to preserve our freedom are appreciated shows respect and compassion on the highest level. Heartiest congratulations to all the sailors involved in this effort.

Injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was in the Orioles' clubhouse Wednesday and promised to return in late October if his teammates make it to World Series. "I'll be back, for sure," said the 21-year-old Machado, who has been in Los Angeles rehabbing since he had surgery on Aug. 27 to repair a partially torn ligament in his right knee. He arrived in Baltimore on Monday and said he will stay for the two games at Camden Yards before leaving Saturday for the club's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla. to continue his rehab.

A muscle disorder kept Dwight Wilcox from coaching when his eldest son joined the Annapolis Baseball Club about 10 years ago. But it has not kept him from helping out. He is the equipment manager for dozens of teams throughout the year. Colin McHale, a member of the club's 12-and-under select team last year, did not get much playing time, but he found a niche off the field. The St. Mary's seventh-grader is the team's unofficial cheer-writer and cheerleader. Wilcox and McHale will be honored Feb. 5 with Sportsmanship Awards from the Mid-Atlantic Recreation and Sports Alliance.

The Orioles have already given Baltimore much to be proud of this week by clinching the American League East division title. Not as well known is another reason for Baltimore to be proud of this amazing organization - for the role that they are playing in the fight against lung cancer ( "Reflecting on memorable scenes from the Orioles' celebration Tuesday," Sept. 17). When Orioles Public Relations Director Monica Barlow died this February of lung cancer, she was only 36 years old. She had spent much of her four-and-a-half-year fight against lung cancer sharing her story in the hope of bringing attention to the critical need for research, some of which helped extend her own life.

AS A FORMER bartender, I'm often struck by how little the enduring sitcom "Cheers" resembles life in a real bar.The first thing you notice is that no one in "Cheers" ever gets the slightest bit drunk -- not even Norm, the fat guy who appears to have a full beer mug surgically attached to one hand.This flies in the face of reality. Let's face it: People who spend a lot of time in bars tend to drink heavily. And if you're not drinking in a bar, what's the sense of being there in the first place?

When your father is the "Run" in Run-DMC and your uncle is Def Jam Records co-founder Russell Simmons, it's a gift and a curse to pursue a career in hip-hop. The gift is obvious: unlimited connections, a built-in brand name and hopefully some skills from Dad's DNA. But for Diggy - who raps without using his famous last name - it's the curse that makes the 16-year-old rapper's story interesting. The struggle for Diggy, born Daniel Simmons III, wasn't just the pressure of being born into rap royalty, but also growing up on camera.

Los Angeles--The taps pour real beer. But the stuff in the glass on the bar in front of where Norm sits and drinks and drinks and drinks is the non-alcoholic kind.The yellow-and-red Wurlitzer jukebox plays real tunes: "The In Crowd" by Dobie Gray, "Heartbreak Hotel" by Elvis Presley, "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" by the Platters and "I Fall to Pieces" by Patsy Cline. But the stairs behind it are fake and go nowhere. There is no Melville's fine seafood restaurant upstairs, as the sign promises.

Tonight, the late-night monarch gets an affectionate salute from another of the network's top shows, "Cheers" (at 9 o'clock, Channel 2).In an episode in which Carson and bandleader Doc Severinsen both appear, we also see subtle hints that all is not harmonious in the transition process.

The demise of the proposed inter-modal transportation hub in Morrell Park is a sad day for the Port of Baltimore and the many folks whose living depends on it. (I'm sure other East Coast ports are cheering.) Where was the leadership in Annapolis on this issue? The governor clearly wasn't interested - he was out campaigning somewhere for something. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown? Obviously not interested either. Now, about Maryland being business-friendly? Help me to understand this.

To those who follow college athletics only casually, the announcement last week that the University of Maryland will henceforth award athletic scholarships on a multi-year basis instead of year-to-year may sound like a minor change. But in fact, it's a major reform that is not only welcome but is likely to attract a legion of imitators. From the effort to unionize athletes at Northwestern University as school employees (a year-long struggle that remains ongoing) to the legal fight over whether the NCAA can profit from the images of athletes in video games and elsewhere without compensating them, how colleges and universities treat athletes — or mistreat them — has sparked a pitched battle of late.

We hereby call upon the editor of The Sun op-ed page to suspend Susan Reimer two weeks for violating the rules of rational thinking ( "Ray Rice decision appears to prompt new NFL policy," Aug. 17). She is worried that the NFL "seeks to punish not only behavior that affects play on the field but behavior not even found criminal under the law. " Her first example: "Bullying in the locker room, for example. " As a former sportswriter, Ms. Reimer should know that what happens in the locker room most definitely does affect play on the field, including when it leads a bullied player to quit the team.

Malik Smallwood lounged in front of Baltimore's Juvenile Justice Center, puffing on a cigarette and his recalling his teenage years spent in and out of the facility - he called it "kiddie camp. " Now 18, Smallwood said temptation loomed on the streets. Detention, in a way, was easier and saved him from that. Yet any attempts to rehabilitate him at the East Baltimore facility didn't do much good, he acknowledged. He had returned for a hearing on his latest juvenile charge. Baltimore law enforcement officials and child advocates have long questioned the efficacy and ethics of locking up juveniles accused of breaking the law, arguing it can doom them to a life of crime.

I have a suggestion concerning the Redskins debate ( "Facts and logic say rename Redskins," June 27), and I invite that football team to consider my little game. Think back to your family's country of origin, no matter how recent or far back in the mists of time. Call to mind some derogatory name someone from your country has been called, whether it might be "Mick" or "Gook," "Wetback" or "Polack" or anything else. Consider whether you'd like a ball team called by that name, posted over the web and print media, shouted out in cheers or derision at the stadium.

The two women who successfully challenged the constitutionality of the federal law banning same-sex marriage received honorary degrees during Johns Hopkins University's commencement ceremonies in Baltimore on Thursday. Many in the audience of students, families and alumni cheered loudly for Edith Windsor and her attorney Roberta Kaplan as they accepted the honors in person. Windsor's case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and resulted in a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act being declared unconstitutional.

IT'S LATE in the afternoon on a mid-January day a few hours before the filming of the episode of "Cheers" that will run tomorrow night. A member of its cast is being shadowed by a man in a sport coat and tie with the serious but distracted look on his face that comes when you're listening to earphones HTC connected to a walkie-talkie.He's an assistant director -- an A.D. in sitcom slang -- whose priority right now is to keep track of this actor so he can be summoned to the set when needed.

About 30 minutes after the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team had wrapped up a 13-8 victory over visiting Albany on April 4, three players were still standing on the Homewood Field turf, signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans. That trio did not represent the home team, though. They were Miles, Ty and Lyle Thompson, the starting attackmen for the Great Danes. "One of my favorite moments of the season was when we had lost that game at Hopkins and you looked on the field and there were only three kids on the field signing autographs, and it was those three," Albany coach Scott Marr said.
