Demarkis Cooper (Oxon Hill) was named the first recipient. UMES is one of 18 schools to offer a PGA-approved degree in golf management, but the only historically black university with the program. The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Owings Mills club, which hosted the LPGA's International Crown in late July.

An Annapolis alderwoman wants to keep the party going a little longer by allowing all city bars to stay open until 2 a.m. The bill, sponsored by Classie G. Hoyle, Democrat of Ward 3, will be up for public hearing next month. Hoyle said it would even out the playing field throughout the city and help businesses increase foot traffic and sales. According to city code, most establishments have to stop selling alcoholic beverages by midnight, but some along West Street and downtown in the historic district and other locations are allowed to remain open until 2 a.m. "Restaurant and bar owners have said that it is very unfair that they have to close down early," Hoyle said.

When the Ravens' offensive line and fullback Kyle Juszczyk stepped in unison to their right Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers defense was convinced that a trademark outside-zone run was headed in that direction. It was a faulty assumption, as quarterback Joe Flacco sold the Steelers on his play-action fake before lobbing the football to tight end Owen Daniels wide open in the left corner of the end zone for the Ravens' first touchdown of a 26-6 victory. How Daniels slipped out for the 2-yard score during the first quarter at M&T Bank Stadium was an example of the kind of offensive balance the Ravens are hoping to build.

Nearly 3,000 businesses or business locations shut down in Maryland in recessionary 2009, the Census Bureau said Thursday. The new figures, which track employers of all sizes, also show a loss of 110,000 private-sector jobs from March 2008 to March 2009 — a bigger hit than earlier estimates from the U.S. Department of Labor had suggested. The Labor Department measured the private-sector drop at 83,000 jobs. The Census Bureau's data is drawn primarily from businesses' tax filings to the Internal Revenue Service, while the more-timely Labor Department figures come from surveys.

Fairness dictates that if one tavern can stay open until a certain hour, so should the establishment next door. This is so obvious it's hard to believe the city of Annapolis and the courts have spent so much time debating the matter.Once again this controversy has settled on Buddy's Crabs and Ribs, an eatery in the heart of Annapolis which wants the same rights enjoyed by at least eight other taverns and restaurants -- namely to hold a 2 a.m. liquor license. The City Council finally decided last summer to grant Buddy's that right, but residents appealed in court and won.Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Eugene M. Lerner ruled the council's decision "capricious" because, having denied Buddy's request before, it didn't offer sufficient reason for changing its mind.

The Orioles' dispute with Major League Baseball over television rights fees casts the franchise in a familiar role as a challenger to the baseball establishment. About a decade ago, the Orioles opposed the proposed relocation of the Montreal Expos to Washington, a city that had been exclusive Orioles television and marketing territory since 1972, when the Senators moved to Dallas and became the Texas Rangers. After bruising negotiations and the threat of litigation by the Baltimore team, baseball reached an agreement with the Orioles giving the club control of the regional television network it shares with the Nationals as compensation for the loss of territory.

What's the reason for the tempest in the teapot of Hillary and Bill Clinton's personal finances? It can't be about how much money they have. Wealth has never disqualified someone from high office. Several of the nation's greatest presidents, who came to office with vast fortunes -- John F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt and his fifth cousin, Teddy -- notably improved the lives of ordinary Americans. The tempest can't be about Hillary Clinton's veracity. It may have been a stretch for her to say she and her husband were "dead broke" when they left the White House, as she told ABC's Diane Sawyer.

About 100 people gathered for a ceremony at the Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital in Baltimore last week, but it wasn't to honor a person. Instead, they paid tribute to a dog in a way that will help pets in the future. The story starts with Elaine Mintzes, a longtime city volunteer and philanthropist who was a patient at Levindale in 2012 after suffering injuries in a fire. She remembers having a dog when she was 7; her parents gave the dog to neighbors because she didn't have the initiative to care for it. That was 81 years ago. Since then, Mintzes had no special affinity for pets, until a white poodle leapt into her room at Levindale and sparked a friendship.

To my fellow Republicans I'd like to say that three years ago, Del. Steve Schuh asked me to be on his steering committee for his campaign to replace Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold. I agreed to support Steve at the time, as I considered him a competent, somewhat conservative businessman who was active in the Republican Party. This week, however, I walked into an early voting center and cast my vote for Laura Neuman as county executive, and I'd like to explain why I changed my mind.
