What does a hungry biker need to sustain himself on a 50-mile trip through the wilds of Harford County? How 'bout coffee, orange juice, bagels and biscuits with sausage gravy? That's what awaited about 100 guests of the March of Dimes of Maryland's "VIP Breakfast" in the Log Cabin at Jones Junction in Bel Air. The spread was a precursor to the day's big event -- the "5th Annual March of Dimes RIDE." Some 3000 motorcyclists rode a scenic route through Harford County, having raised pledges that totaled more than $205,000 for the March of Dimes' fight to save babies and lower infant mortality and pre-term delivery rates in Maryland.

Its hard to believe the short sightedness of the Oriole management in awarding such a paltry salary to Manny Machado, third baseman extraordinaire, winner of a platinum glove award, not to mention playing his heart out for his team and fans during the 2013 season ( "The price is light," March 11). If this is the way you reward dedication, it will serve you right if he walks to another team with next year's negotiations!

Retired after 30 years working as a roofer, Allan Foster enjoyed working part time at his church and helping organize the March of Dimes' annual Great Chesapeake Bay Swim. Most evenings, the 56-year-old and his wife walked to a neighborhood store to play Keno, which is what they were doing moments before Foster was gunned down Thursday outside his Irvington home in Southwest Baltimore. Marcia Simpson-Foster, who said her husband didn't have any trouble with anyone, believes it must have been a case of mistaken identity.

With more than 50 local bands performing all around Station North and Mount Vernon this weekend, Scapescape is one of Baltimore's premier events to better understand the hype surrounding its diverse arts and music scenes. (It's also a bit intimidating. A friend of Midnight Sun, Seth, created a handy Google document to keep track of all the sets scheduled for Labor Day weekend.) I don't mean to single out a particular artist or band when there are so many worthy acts performing, so just know that Scapescape is an awesome event and we're lucky to have it. With that said, tonight could be particularly special because Jenn Wasner, the singer/guitarist of Wye Oak and her solo project Flock of Dimes, will perform two sets at the Charles Street Parking Lot (1712 N. Charles St.)

VOLUNTEERS to the March of Dimes are planning a walk from 7 to 10 a.m. on Sunday at Canton Waterfront Park in the hope of raising funds which were lost this year on the April 14 walk when temperatures dropped to 30 degrees with wet and rainy conditions.''The awful weather brought out about 7,000 of the 20,000 registered,'' says Michael Gahagan, director of development. ''We raised $600,000, which was about $300,000 away from our goal.''This Sunday's 6-mile walk begins and ends at the park, which is on Boston Street in Fells Point, and walkers will wind through Highlandtown and Fells Point.

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE CELEBRATING the holidays by indulging in all sorts of edible treats. And the March of Dimes' "Culinary Extravaganza" was certainly the place to do it. The Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel was stuffed with people stuffing themselves on all sorts of edible wonders created by about 30 local chefs -- goodies such as: chocolate-covered cheesecake lollipops, smoked salmon with zucchini slaw and toasted almonds, sliced tenderloin with...

Walk around Baltimore today and you could see Jenn Wasner's big eyes staring up at you. Wasner, who plays guitar and sings in Wye Oak and now by herself as Flock of Dimes, is the cover star for b's latest "10 to Watch Under 30" issue . In 2011, Wasner, an Owings Mills native, lived on the road, playing more than 200 shows alongside Wye Oak drummer Andy Stack. When she returned home to Baltimore, she was burned out, and even considered moving away from the city. But don't ever underestimate the power of rest.

Here are five questions as Maryland plays Marshall in the Military Bowl this afternoon (2:30 p.m. on ESPN): ** Will the Terps regularly remove a linebacker and add a defensive back to defend Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato? The Terps have often employed that strategy against other prolific passing teams, going to five - or even six - defensive backs. But here's the difficulty: Marshall can run the ball, too. It has a back, Essray Taliaferro, who topped 1,000 yards this season.

I read the whole paper June 10 but found no report of the Great Chesapeake Bay Swim that occurred the day before. My 62-year-old husband swam in the event for his eighth consecutive year and thus I have had seen the energy and excitement it creates annually. The swim is certainly important enough to warrant an article with photos in the paper. This year, more than 600 people swam the 4.4-miles distance race starting from Sandy Point State Park. Some swimmers face major handicaps (including the absence of limbs)

Fewer moms scheduled early deliveries when hospitals used a tool kit to promote full-term pregnancies, according to a research funded by the March of Dimes and others. Researchers looked at deliveries at 25 hospitals who used the tool kit and found that C-sections performed with no medical reason and inductions of labor fell 83 percent. The March of Dimes called the results promising. They said babies born before full-term are at increased risk for serious health problems.

It's the old "fair share" argument, but this time it holds even less water than usual. The Maryland State Education Association, the union that bargains on behalf of K-12 teachers throughout Maryland, wants to force all teachers — members or not — to pay union dues. The union claims educators owe their "fair share" because it must represent non-union members in collective bargaining and grievances. At the moment, 10 of Maryland's 24 school districts already require non-union teachers to pay union dues.
