The media need to stop perpetuating the lie that the purchase of the Orioles by Peter Angelos kept the team from being moved ("Evolving legacy," Aug. 2). Sure, some fans were paranoid, but pay them no mention. No owner was going to move the Orioles at a time when a new, highly lauded stadium was in its second season, it was packed with sellouts every night and the Orioles were the only major professional sports team in a market the size of Baltimore.

The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore on Friday named Joel Tinsley-Hall as its new executive director, effective immediately. The decision comes amid tensions between the community and the center, and after a community-led interview of Tinsley-Hall last month became contentious at times. Tinsley-Hall, 39, is an 8-year Army veteran and a former supervisor of the University of Maryland's Harbor City Unlimited residential rehabilitation program for patients with mental illness.

At 6 feet-7 inches tall, Paul Farragut never had any trouble making his presence known. His looming stature, hang-dog expression and balding pate were all unmistakable trademarks that telegraphed his comings and goings.For five years, he has served as the Howard County councilman from District 4, never the best-known or the most prolific of legislators, but solid. He generally voted with his Democratic colleagues, but rarely cast the lead vote. His dependability was overshadowed only by his good-naturedness.

The acting executive director of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore has dropped her bid to become the organization's permanent head, even as the search to fill the spot continues. Kelly Neel's announced departure from the GLCCB, effective Oct. 3, surprised the group's board of directors, which had short-listed her as a finalist among a narrowing pool of contenders for the permanent job, said Mike McCarthy, the board's president. McCarthy said there were "points of contention" between the board and Neel, but he didn't think "it was at the level that she felt her value was questioned.

Sonja Santelises stood before a room of Baltimore educators whose faces were filled with angst as she spoke about a rigorous new curriculum that would soon change everything they thought they knew about teaching. Three years later, when she pulled up a new English and language arts curriculum aligned with new standards - known as the "common core" - that will be rolled out this year, a room of educators erupted into cheers. "That didn't mean that everything is perfect, because there's no magic bullet to this common core thing," Santelises, the city schools' chief academic officer, recalled recently.

This week's elections had the unintended effect of pushing to the back pages a worrisome report concerning the future of one of Prince George's County's top unelected officials, School Superintendent John A. Murphy. On Tuesday Murphy was named one of three finalists for Kentucky commissioner of education, and the P.G. schools chief announced that he was actively looking for another job. The news raised concerns that Murphy's departure could stall improvements in the county schools at a crucial time.

There are tears in my eyes and aches in my heart as I have just completed reading some newspaper articles on the outbreaks and explosions currently occurring in Iraq ( "Militants make gains in push to reach Baghdad," June 12) as well as numerous TV programs with varied opinions. Unfortunately, it is my opinion that all of this contemporary strife, death and unhappiness to mankind in this area could have been completely avoided if only President Barack Obama had not exposed some of his selfish, personal and political characteristics when he announced he was withdrawing all of our military forces and sending them home at the end of December 2011.

With Baltimore starting the search for its next police commissioner, a key official in the city's crime fighting efforts also departed City Hall this week to lesser fanfare. Sheryl Goldstein was rarely at the public forefront but almost always involved in the agency's biggest initiatives in her role as director of the Office on Criminal Justice. Perhaps more importantly, she was able to get those initiatives paid for amid tight budget times. As a key advisor to former Sheila Dixon and an ally of Police CommissionerFrederick H. Bealefeld III, she may be as responsible for the city's shift away from so-called zero tolerance policies as anyone - resulting in a precipitous decline in arrests.

The McDonogh boys soccer team finds itself in a familiar spot, ranked No. 1 in The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 preseason poll. This season, the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champions have another talented team, led by All-Metro senior midfielder Connor Smith. But there's one big difference: Longtime head coach Steve Nichols moved on to coach his alma mater, Loyola Maryland, leaving assistant Brandon Quaranta in charge of one of the country's most prominent programs.

As usual, the Super Bowl champions suffered a drain of talent in the offseason. But that won't stop the Seattle Seahawks from winning a second straight NFL title. Repeating as champion is difficult, so much in fact that the last team to do it was the New England Patriots after the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The Seahawks also lost two offensive starters in free agency, and they cut two on defense to alleviate salary cap concerns. But Seattle is still loaded, especially on defense, which should carry it to the Super Bowl where the Seahawks will defeat either the Denver Broncos or the Patriots from the AFC. The Seahawks have allowed the fewest points in the league the past two seasons.

Normally, a blowout win against the New York Yankees is celebrated with abandon at Camden Yards. Add in that Monday's 11-3 victory separated the Orioles and the Yankees even further in the American League East race and that one of the offensive heroes was beleaguered slugger Chris Davis, and you'd have almost the perfect scenario for Orioles fans. Except that that feel-good vibe took a hard tumble in the third inning when 22-year-old third baseman Manny Machado collapsed in the batter's box after a swing and had to be helped off the field.

WASHINGTON -- It's kind of an unwritten rule hereabouts that if you leave a high-profile public job, you go quietly, and with a bouquet from your boss as you go out the door.That is, no matter why you depart, the standard operating procedure is for the real reason to be sugarcoated so that nobody's reputation is unduly tarnished, neither the kicker nor the kickee.When Les Aspin was given his walking papers as secretary of defense, for example, his departure was officially cast as a mutual decision.

You have to be of a certain age now, your mid-30s at least, to even remember the midnight trauma of March 28-29, 1984. But to fully appreciate the hard, numbing slap of that snowy night - how much it hurt, once upon a time - your memories of the Baltimore Colts would have to go back further than the 30 years since they packed up and moved to Indianapolis. For this old story to have any meaning anymore, you'd have to remember the last good years of the Baltimore Colts, the Bert Jones-Lydell Mitchell years, at least seven seasons before the move.
