SARASOTA, Fla. -- When the Orioles officially opened training camp this morning, Jim Palmer was not in uniform. To a lot of people that wasn't a surprise, because they didn't expect him in the first place.However, the Hall of Fame righthander will be here tomorrow, committed to a full spring training trial that manager Frank Robinson has promised.It was only after an agonizing 48 hours of self-evaluation that Palmer, 45, decided to accept the Orioles' invitation. And he did so only after hearing that Robinson felt he would be a positive influence on the youthful pitching staff.

After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

"Now let's make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state. " -- President Barack Obama in his address to the nation on Wednesday. About the second point reasonable people can quibble. The terrorist army that calls itself the Islamic State is certainly trying to build a state -- and not just a state, but a super state or caliphate. They're not there yet; their delivery of social services seems spotty at best, though they do collect taxes and uphold the law (in a fashion)

Jack Watkins, who once made a daily point of greeting his neighbors, was finally so alienated from his friends and family that it took seven years before anyone knew the 75-year-old was missing, much less dead. No one reported his May 1996 disappearance, and not even his stepdaughters came looking for him. They were cut out of his life, they said, by the much younger woman he'd taken up with, a woman he told the world he planned to marry. Then he vanished. Police found his emaciated body almost immediately, stuffed inside a 31-inch-long steamer trunk and left to rot beside a Loudon County, Va., trash can near the Appalachian Trail.

WASHINGTON - A unanimous Supreme Court lowered the legal hurdles yesterday that workers must clear in order to win a jury verdict finding them to be victims of age discrimination. The ruling made clear that, if a worker has convinced a jury that age bias was the reason for a firing or a lost promotion, judges or appeals courts may not then demand even more evidence to convince them that discrimination occurred. The ruling clarifies a legal standard the court has used for 27 years to judge various discrimination claims under federal civil rights laws.

Philadelphia. -- Each time I think that every possible bizarre event that could take place in the O.J. Simpson trial has occurred, something else pops up to prove how wrong I was. In recent weeks, the focus has been so intense on former detective Mark Fuhrman's racial attitudes that one almost has to struggle to recall what brought on the trial in the first place.From the beginning I have been convinced that Mr. Simpson did the crime. Unfair? Perhaps. But looking objectively at the evidence so far presented, I can reach no other reasonable conclusion.

In what should be a cautionary example of being careful what you ask for, the Associated Press Stylebook  has tweeted an invitation to identify what people like and dislike in the new edition. The Lord has delivered them into my hands.  When I first picked up my copy of the 2014 edition, it fell open to the page bearing the convince, persuade  entry. You know, you may be convinced that or convinced of  but you must be persuaded to . ( Persuaded  can also take that , Garner's Modern American Usage  points out, but let that pass.)

With Russian troops amassed along its border and Kremlin-backed separatists in control of major cities in eastern Ukraine, the government in Kiev is facing the gravest threat to its survival since the breakup of the former Soviet Union a generation ago. Unless the U.S. and its allies can convince Russian President Vladimir Putin to step back from using the unrest there as a pretext for military intervention, it looks more likely than ever that eastern...

Shawn Nadelen found what he was looking for in No. 19 Towson's 9-1 victory over Mount St. Mary's on Saturday as the defense did not surrender a goal until midway through the fourth quarter and the offense was productive with nine goals and 40 shots. But the coach also did his best to keep the players grounded after beating a Mountaineers squad that graduated 95.5 percent of its goal scoring and has been further depleted by injuries this season. “You're excited about the win. Any win in Division I lacrosse is a good one,” Nadelen said Monday evening.

Mount St. Joseph ruled the A Conference wrestling ranks for many years before returning to the pack, but the No. 2 Gaels are making a statement this year, taking the program back to its heyday. The team (4-0) put in a workman-like effort Tuesday night at Spalding, first defeating Calvert Hall, 60-17, then recording a convincing, 45-27, win over No. 9 Archbishop Spalding.

You never know with postseason awards. They're sometimes too difficult to handicap because of who's voting and what those people consider when evaluating the best players. But I've been saying for a while that Manny Machado will win a Gold Glove this season. Those who have watched him this year - and his ability to make both routine and difficult plays seem easy - would agree. I might not be going out on a limb here, but I'm telling you definitively he will win when the awards are announced Tuesday night on ESPN2.

WASHINGTON -- The dean of Maryland's congressional delegation emerged from a classified briefing Thursday persuaded that Syrian leader Bashar Assad was responsible for last month's chemical weapons attack but undecided on whether a U.S. military strike is the best response. "What we heard today made a compelling forensic case, one, that nerve gas was used and, No. 2, that it was used by the Assad regime," said Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski. But the Democratic chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee and member of the Senate Intelligence Committee said she has more questions about the military response and is wary of involving the U.S. in a protracted conflict.

The toughest, or at least the most time-consuming and demanding, part of Cal Ripken's 1995 season is over.Playing the game has always been the most enjoyable facet of the profession for the Orioles' All-Star shortstop. Even under the tremendous glare of a national spotlight, that's been easy. And even as he closes in on Lou Gehrig's record of 2,130 consecutive games, nothing has changed about his style of play or his approach to the game.He still makes people wince every time he jams a foot into the bag on a close play at first base, slides hard into second or endures a collision in the midst of turning a double play.

Your constituents come from all parts of the country; mine from different parts of the world. Yours are driven by myriad interests; mine are simply seeking justice. Yours are young and old; mine are mostly teenagers. You call yours, "the U.S. Congress. " I call mine "the Younus family. " Mr. President, my nephews and nieces, who live in Pakistan, Canada and elsewhere, buy the fact that Syiran President Bashar Assad should be ousted and held responsible for his reprehensible actions against his own people.
