Brown's campaign reported that it had raised $813,000 in less than three weeks, more than three times what his closest competitor took in. "Wow," Donald Norris, chair of the public policy department at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, said of Brown's haul. "That is stunning.

It is bad enough that Carnival Cruise Lines would ask for an exception to the EPA requirement that its ships use cleaner fuel, but to threaten to take its business away from Baltimore is blackmail: The governor should have shown stronger character and not fallen for this ploy ("O'Malley lobbies EPA on fuel rules," June 16). This is just another case where states or counties try to influence businesses to come or stay in their jurisdiction because they believe the jobs they offer nullify the sordidness of these nefarious deals.

As mentioned in yesterday's column , Daniel Bryan's rehab wasn't going as well as hoped.  On Monday's RAW, that was made official when the Authority vacated the title and announced it would be put on the line in a seven-man ladder match. They announced the first two participants of the match quickly, saying Alberto Del Rio earned his shot last week, and also put Randy Orton into the match.  Later in the night, Sheamus and Cesaro also earned their shots in qualifying matches.  You can read about my early thoughts on who should win the match in yesterday's column, but there are two questions that remain after RAW. The first is who will the three remaining competitors be?

The commission voted 3-2, with Chairman Michael K. Powell one of the two dissenters, to relieve the regional Bell companies from having to share their lines at cut rates with Internet service competitors, but would require them to continue to lease equipment to competitors for telephone service.

Laurel resident Susan Habig won gold in the doubles finals of shuffleboard in the 65-69 age category in July at the National Senior Games in Cleveland, Ohio. In individual shuffleboard, Habig came in sixth and her partner in doubles, Marcia Long, of Sweetwater, Tenn., came in seventh, but together they brought home gold medals in doubles. The two competitors had just formally met at the games. Once a year Habig qualifies for shuffleboard in Maryland, but she doesn't play the rest of the year because there are no courts to practice on nearby.

Major health insurer CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield has asked the state to let it increase its rates in the individual marketplace by as much as 30 percent on average next year, but two competitors want to lower what they charge people who don't get coverage through an employer. The requests were released Friday by the Maryland Insurance Administration, whose officials emphasized that they could require modifications. The agency cut significantly the rate increase CareFirst had requested for this year.

The weather is heating up and so are the Orioles hitters, which should make for a very entertaining summer in the wide-open American League East. Enjoy it while you can. The Orioles are looking more and more like the resourceful 2012 team that ended the franchise's 14-season playoff drought, and the addition of big-swinging Nelson Cruz has given the lineup additional swagger while the team works through a series of early season injuries. Whether that means this is the year when the Orioles make a serious run at the World Series remains to be seen.

As "Bronco" Billy Gowan made his way back to the stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday night, the Louisiana-born, Kentucky-based trainer looked and acted as if his horse, Ride On Curlin, had just won the 139th Preakness. "I'm happy. He never quit. My horse run as hard as he could, but old [California] Chrome kept running, too," Gowan said after Ride On Curlin followed up a disappointing seventh-place finish in the Kentucky Derby with runner-up honors in Baltimore.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - When Art Sherman reached the barn at 5 a.m. Sunday, the day after the Kentucky Derby, he found his star pupil still slumbering. “I didn't want to wake him up,” he said of California Chrome, the newly garlanded champion of Churchill Downs. “I know he'd had a hard day.” The 77-year-old trainer looked wide awake, walking crisply around Barn 20, though he professed to be “numb” to the previous day's triumph. He said the enormity probably won't hit him until he finds a few moments alone in his lounge chair, outside the family home in Rancho Bernardo, Calif.

In recent years, Maryland has seen many local banks acquired by out-of-state rivals. A little over a decade ago, the state had 139 banks based here, with 20 of them separately chartered affiliates of Mercantile-Safe Deposit & Trust Co., according to the Maryland Bankers Association. Here are a few of Baltimore's most prominent banks that have been bought up over past three decades. Provident Bank (1886-2008) Provident, which had been based in Baltimore since the late 1800s, had long prided itself on its independence.

Shearwater Sailing Club's annual Twilight Race last Saturday evening was a lovely one, despite dire weather predictions calling for rain and no wind. The precipitation held off and moderate 12- to 14-knot breezes sent the fleet of 109 starters in 15 classes up and down the bay.The three PHRF A divisions (IMS, PHRF Sport and PHRF B), along with the J/30s, sailed a 20.12-mile course, while the rest of the fleet competed on a 13.47-mile version.First to finish was Paul and Kathy Parks' Mumm 36 Sundog, clearing the line just after 8:30 p.m. But with Ben Michaelson and his crew on his J/44 Quintessence coming in 5 1/2 minutes later, to correct to first in PHRF A-0, the Parks -- who had lingered near the finish to check their status -- found themselves in second by about 30 seconds.

Fred Schumacher knew the race was worse than he thought it would be when he watched a group of Marines climb into a pickup truck and quit after the first few checkpoints. The first JFK 50 Mile race Schumacher ran, on March 30 1974, offered a particularly difficult challenge in the 34-degree weather and steady rain that turned to sleet for part of the event. Schumacher, a 66-year-old retired Army officer from Frederick, said he had decided to start the race out of complete ignorance.
