State university officials took an early step Friday in approving a high-end hotel and conference center that is expected to be a cornerstone of a major redevelopment plan for the University of Maryland, College Park and its surroundings. The university envisions a 300-room hotel with at least 10,000 square feet of conference space, as well as retail and restaurants, for an underused parcel of land, known as East Campus. The town of College Park has many budget hotels but lacks something more luxurious.

Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo doesn't have a predetermined profile for his prospective slotbacks to fit, yet they all seem to be about the same height and weight, with two common traits: patience and a bit of a chip on their shoulders. The patience is needed to wait their turn, in what has become a production line of talented players who can run, block and catch swing passes out of the backfield in the trademark triple-option offense. As with most of their teammates, the chip comes with them from high school.

On July 21, 1896, the cornerstone of Havre de Grace High School was laid, a project that eventually would cost $25,000. The City of Havre de Grace contributed $8,000, and the county commissioners provided the rest. The building was put to use Jan. 12, 1897. It was condemned in 1945 because of deficiencies in lighting and ventilation and because of its narrow corridors and stairways. - Source: Our Harford Heritage : A History of Harford Co, MD by C.

Former Baltimore Mayor Thomas J. D'Alesandro III watched over the opening of the Memorial Stadium time capsule yesterday - just as his father presided in 1954, when the small lead box was tucked in the cornerstone for posterity, brimming with baseball souvenirs, business cards and the hope, as a note suggested, that the new structure on 33rd Street would stand forever. The opening of the box yesterday was a clear sign that it would not. Demolition of the last remnant of the stadium - the 10-story memorial wall - is expected to begin late next week.

The denim jean jacket survived Woodstock '94, six Grateful Dead shows, Mr. Dodd's geometry class. Look for the Pythagorean Theorem on the inside left cuff. The funky lamp adorned Dottie Hopson's living room, spring 1954. Then there's the red bowling ball Hank Collins rolled just before proposing to his future bride in the summer of 1968.The pictures of the bargains, found at Goodwill Industries stores, are real, their histories the stuff of advertising copywriters' fancy at Cornerstone Advertising in Baltimore.

On the day that workers began to take down their church, Ames United Methodist Church parishioners came to see what they could learn about the people who built the parish up 115 years ago. About two dozen members of Bel Air's oldest African-American congregation gathered yesterday morning near the busy intersection of U.S. 1 and Route 924 to watch as the 1886 church's cornerstone was removed. Inside the stone might be messages, documents, clues to the founding members, who first worshiped in Bel Air in an old warehouse.

My 16-year career in two legislatures (eight in the Maryland General Assembly and eight in Congress) included many debates on the most divisive issues of our time: Capital punishment, affirmative action, war and peace, impeachment, entitlement reform and abortion rights were guaranteed to generate partisan strife and emotional debate. No issue generated more emotion than a woman's right to choose. Intense, emotional debates produced a unique lexicon, as legislators debated the merits and implications of "judicial bypass," "parental consent," "partial birth" and the many complexities attendant to Medicaid (taxpayer)

After narrowly failing to pass a gay marriage bill this year, advocates in Maryland are putting together a savvy and high-powered campaign to persuade a few holdout delegates to embrace the issue. And they're aiming it straight at the constituency that may be key to the legislation's chances in the General Assembly and at the ballot box if it is petitioned to referendum: African-Americans. A gay marriage bill cleared the Senate this year but was withdrawn from the House of Delegates when it became clear that supporters were a few votes shy. In particular, proponents had trouble convincing some Democrats from Prince George's County and Baltimore City who were under pressure from African-American church leaders who oppose gay marriage on religious grounds.

Kenneth S. Battye, a retired Baltimore stockbroker and a lifelong proponent of the "value theory" of investing who had a career at Legg Mason that spanned 55 years, died Nov. 16 of complications from dementia at his Lutherville home. He was 97. Mr. Battye, who was the son of a stockbroker and a homemaker and raised in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, learned a lasting lesson about the value of earning and saving money at an early age. He was about 10 years old when he and his life savings — a pocketful of change that had taken him six months to save — quickly vanished.

Adam Jones flails helplessly at a slider that is well out of the strike zone. Matt Wieters grounds out meekly to second base. Nick Markakis slaps an opposite-field single, and his homerless streak continues. Nolan Reimold takes an 0-for-4 against Triple-A pitching. These snapshots have dominated an Orioles' 2010 season, which was supposed to yield substantial improvement and a more competitive team. Instead, the Orioles have the worst record in the major leagues, a manager who could be entering his final days in charge and a disabled list dotted with some of their highest-paid players.

Say your bus is laid over for a while at the Baltimore Travel Plaza. This is your first time in Baltimore, and so, you think, "I sure should get a crab cake." Say you walk away from the fast-food joints at the terminal and, guided by instinct, across the parking lot toward the Baltimore Truck Wash, and there it is: the Cornerstone Grille, one of the luckiest breaks you're likely to have on the long, lonely highway. The Cornerstone Grille might not have the oddest location of any place I've reviewed, but it's close, and it definitely ranks No. 1 as the most unusual location to offer outdoor seating - me, I could sit there all day, watching cars and trucks come and go on and off the ramps of Interstate 95. There are a few other things that distinguish the Cornerstone Grille from the majority of the restaurants that come up for review.
