Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman, who is in his first big league camp this spring, received a special welcome to the clubhouse from center fielder Adam Jones on Sunday morning. When Gausman -- who was the Orioles' first-round pick (fourth overall) in last June's draft -- pitched at LSU, he developed a ritual of eating three powdered mini-donuts between innings when he pitched. It's a habit that he's continued in his early days as a pro with the Orioles, but he didn't do it in his final two starts of last season, and said he's considering cutting out the routine entirely this year.

Stacy Keibler plans to take a special supplement after she gives birth next month -- a pill made from her placenta. The Rosedale native and host of "Supermarket Superstar" is among a growing number of women who are returning to the ancient practice of consuming the placenta , the organ which nourishes the fetus during pregnancy. Most other mammals eat the placenta immediately after birth, as do many women in some Asian and African cultures.  Some believe that consuming the placenta can ward off postpartum depression, boost energy and speed healing, although few studies have been conducted.

The 10,000-square-foot Dunkin' Donuts would be located on Stevens Forest Road between the intersections of Santiago Road and Robert Oliver Place, which runs through the village center. The 1.7-acre lot has been vacant for almost 15 years after a gas station closed in 1999.

Medicare recipients in Maryland saved $46.2 million in prescription drug costs because of health care reform, the Obama Administration said today. The savings were achieved with rebates and discounts to ease the burden of the donut hole, when patients reach certain limits that require them to pay 100 percent of their prescription drug costs. The announcement was made as health care reform celebrates its second anniversary this week. In Maryland, 73,269 Medicare beneficiaries have saved an average of $630.19 onprescription drugs costs.  The savings came from a one-time $250 rebate check to seniors who hit the “donut hole” coverage gap in 2010 and a 50 percent discount on covered brand-name drugs in the donut hole in 2011.
