Amid all the self-congratulation at the University of Maryland over a corporate financed modest boost in mental health services for students, I'd like to demur ("UM adds funding for mental health," April 3). In the article, we're told how happy everyone is that Pepsico, which "holds lucrative vending contracts with the university," is giving $500,000 a year for 10 years to allow hiring three new psychologists and 1.5 campus health center jobs to deal with a 23 percent increase in requests for help over the last few years and a tragic recent off-campus fatal shooting.

In many ways, this season was a new frontier for the Houston Texans, who captured their first AFC South title, earned their first postseason berth, and then cemented their first playoff win with a 31-10 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday evening. So reaching the AFC divisional round is quite an accomplishment for this franchise, but just making an appearance against the Ravens on Sunday isn't the objective, according to Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson. “We want to win,” he said during a conference call Wednesday with Baltimore media.

I am writing in response to Jeremy Schwartz's op-ed defense of extending unemployment benefits ("Unemployment benefits are not like welfare," Dec. 21). He babbles on about the virtues of continuing the give unemployment benefits and tries to decry those who see these benefits as another form of welfare. Mr. Schwartz is a professor of economics at Loyola University, but not a very good psychologist. I personally know of several people receiving unemployment benefits, and they have all have told me that it would be foolish to seriously look for employment as long as they can get a free handout.

In his brief comments to the media following the Orioles' ALDS Game 5 loss to the Yankees in New York, club managing partner Peter Angelos opened the door to the idea of a contract extension for manager Buck Showalter. “If they're interested in staying,” Angelos said of Showalter and executive vice president Dan Duquette, “nobody's more interested in keeping him than I am. And certainly I speak for everyone in the organization.” Showalter's contract runs through the end of the 2013 season, but speaking with reporters on Saturday, he indicated he was fine with the status of his deal.

In his longest stretch on defense of the season, Corey Graham finished Sunday's 25-15 win against the Cleveland Browns with six tackles. But the cornerback was unable to register an interception or a pass breakup, which contributed to the sixth-year veteran feeling unfulfilled about his play. “It was all right,” Graham said Thursday. “Obviously, some things have got to be better, and I feel like I can play a lot better. I've got to find a way to make more plays. It was up and down, and to me, it wasn't that good.

The lines of players in front of each team's bench during the national anthem were shorter than usual. In Thursday night's Major League Lacrosse matchup between the last place Chesapeake Bayhawks (3-8) and the first-place Rochester Rattlers (8-3), the teams were without a combined 12 players who were competing in the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships in Commerce City, Colo. On a night when Chesapeake's season was on the line, with the team needing to win all four of its remaining games to make the playoffs, seven Bayhawks players were in Colorado.

Let's be honest. The hardest thing about evaluating the Orioles organization at the nonmathematical halfway point in the 2014 season is trying to do that without depending on the two most obvious measuring sticks. It would be easy to simply look at the American League East standings and the Orioles' strong performance over the past few weeks and give the club an "A" for overcoming several major obstacles to take control of the division. And it's always tempting to grade on a curve that takes into account just how unsuccessful this team was for so long.

Courtesy of Saturday's 16-12 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson, No. 5 Washington College became the first team to earn a spot in the upcoming league tournament. But with two more conference games remaining, against No. 20 Gettysburg on Saturday and Swarthmore on April 26, the Shoremen are eager to capture their second regular-season title in three years. “I think when you hit that point in the season when you know that you're going to be in no matter what, it's a bit relieving, but to be honest, the focus is solely on Gettysburg and trying to finish the regular season out on a high,” coach Jeff Shirk said Wednesday afternoon.

Closing the digital divide may take more than simply connecting low-income people to the Internet. There also needs to be someplace for them to go once they reach cyberspace, according to a new report. In a yearlong study, the Children's Partnership, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, found that most content on the Internet is not useful for poor people or folks with weak reading skills. With more of these people getting online, the study urges community leaders, companies and investors to develop content for their needs.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Zach Britton hasn't been told yet that he will pitch out of the bullpen if he makes the Opening Day roster, but all signs point to the Orioles left-hander heading in that direction. After a dominant one-inning performance Wednesday, when he needed just seven pitches to retire the Philadelphia Phillies in order, Britton is scheduled to pitch Friday on the road against the Minnesota Twins. That would be his fourth outing in 10 days, and he hasn't pitched more than two innings in any game.
