Lutherville native Charlie Singer is juggling school and a lifelong dream. He'll have a chance to realize that dream starting Friday. Singer, 19, is a rising sophomore at Tulane studying business and architecture. He also is enrolled in the Oakcliff Sailing Center's Sapling program, an exclusive summer-long camp that helps give 12 to 15 aspiring professional sailors ages to 18 to 30 the skills they need to succeed in yacht racing. Beginning Friday, Singer, along with seven other Sapling members, will be part of a team competing in the Annapolis to Newport Race aboard the Temptation-Oakcliff, a 50-foot yacht sailing from the mouth of the Severn River to Castle Hill Light in Newport Neck, R.I. Singer said focusing exclusively on yacht racing this summer has been a welcome change, especially because he will get to compete in his longest race to date this weekend.

A mechanical problem forced a police helicopter pilot to make an emergency landing on the football field of a local high school in Columbia on Thursday night, a maneuver that caused "significant damage" to the aircraft but injured no one, according to Howard County Police. About 11:07 p.m., the pilot and three flight officers were responding to a police call when the undetermined problem occurred, police said. The pilot, a tenured officer and certified flight instructor, "spotted Wilde Lake High School nearby" using night-vision goggles and performed the emergency landing in the field, which sustained minimal damage.

Deborah Seymour lives in Federal Hill. But working at Laureate Education Inc. and shopping and dining in Harbor East means much of her life happens on the other side of the harbor. "Between the restaurants and the retail, it is a place where you can spend a lot of time," she said. "It has become a neighborhood that you just don't leave after work. It has become a destination. " The growth along the brick-paved sidewalks has been accelerating, turning Harbor East into the city's hottest shopping destination.

A federal judge doled out lengthy prison sentences this week to members of a violent drug-dealing crew that operated on the downtown strip of bars and clubs known as The Block and killed a dancer who worked for them when they thought she was a threat to their business. Donte Baker, Tyrone Johniken and Gary Cromartie, who dealt heroin and crack cocaine together in the 400 block of E. Baltimore St., were convicted last year in the murder of Cherrie Gammon, a 25-year-old stripper and mother of two who worked at Club Pussycat.

Here's what umpire crew chief Gerry Davis told me about the delay on today's replay review on Rays right fielder Matt Joyce's eventual home run ball in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Rays: "[Orioles manager] Buck [Showalter] wanted to know whether the ball was, in fact, fair. We got together as a crew to discuss whether the ball was fair or foul, whether any of us had anything differently than [first-base ump Dan Iassogna] had. We did not. So the ruling on the field was that it was a fair ball in play.

The U.S. Coast Guard is investigating whether the body of a man that washed up against a homeowner's pier in southern Anne Arundel County on Thursday is that of a crew member who went missing from a commercial container ship late last year. Officials with the state's Department of Natural Resources Police alerted the Coast Guard of the body, which was found in Deale, about 7:40 p.m. Thursday, said Lt. Peter Francisco, a Coast Guard marine investigator. "Whenever there is a body recovered, that's cross-referenced against all missing people that the Coast Guard has searches for," Francisco said.

The final score was a bummer for the Orioles: Yankees 3, O's 0 in the rubber match of the three-game series. And the weather in Yankee Stadium was chilly and breezy, better suited for football. But the Orioles had so many nice things said about them in their first nationally televised Sunday night game in five seasons that they probably hated to leave the Bronx. As The Baltimore Sun's Ed Encina reported, Orioles such as center fielder Adam Jones made it clear they understood this was not just another game . "It's 'Sunday Night Baseball,'" Jones said.
