The top leaders of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee are seeking a resolution from the state party directing its representatives to oppose a new term for national party Chairman Reince Priebus in the aftermath of the GOP's dismal showing in the Nov. 6 election. John Fiastro Jr., the newly elected county chairman, said the party executive committee decided Monday night to seek such a resolution at the party's state convention at Turf Valley in Howard County on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. Fiastro said there was a sentiment among county party leaders that the national GOP needs new leadership in the wake of its election setbacks, which included President Barack Obama's win over Mitt Romney and the loss of seats in the U.S. Senate.

The NCAA has done more than hammer the Penn State football program with crippling sanctions. It has entered the crime business. In past situations where athletics and criminal activity intertwined, the NCAA got involved only after its rules had been violated. For example, in 2003, when Baylor basketball player Patrick Dennehy was murdered by a teammate, the NCAA stepped in with penalties when it learned the coach was paying players. Whether the NCAA overstepped its bounds in the Penn State case has been debated.

From the beginning of the labor fight with NFL owners, the rallying cry for Domonique Foxworth focused on health and safety issues — protecting players from the inherent violence of the game. When the two sides finally raised a flag of truce Monday, ending a 136-day lockout of players, the Ravens cornerback was able to revel in a victory that should make football safer for players at all levels. In itself, elimination of the football staple of two-a-day practices was reason enough to celebrate.

Domonique Foxworth has juggled knee rehab, labor negotiations and family obligations this month in his diverse role as cornerback, union leader and father. As with the knee injury that made him invisible last season, he worked mostly behind the scenes. As a member of the now-defunct NFL Players Association's executive committee, Foxworth was at the epicenter of the NFL's labor dispute. He attended mediated negotiations with owners in Washington in early March, then hurried home to care for his 31/2-month-old daughter Avery while his wife, Ashley, attended law school classes.

More than two weeks after Maryland Republicans met behind closed doors and voted to express "no confidence" in leader James Pelura, the state GOP chairman insists he's not going anywhere. And, he says, he has the votes to ensure that he isn't forced out. "I am not resigning," Pelura declared in an interview. While the executive committee, made up of 30 statewide and county officers, voted against Pelura during a July meeting, the only way to remove the party chairman is by a two-thirds' vote of the much larger state convention.

The NFL Players Association is about to find out what it's like to go into high-stakes negotiations without Gene Upshaw. Upshaw carried the union fight for 25 years as its strong-willed executive director, participating in collective bargaining negotiations as far back as 1977. His death, from pancreatic cancer Wednesday, went shock waves through the NFL and left a leadership void in the union. "The new guy will have to do what he can, but he can't be Gene Upshaw," said Stan White, a former Baltimore Colt and long-time union activist.

NEW YORK - Lloyd Ward, the embattled chief executive of the U.S. Olympic Committee, escaped an effort last night to oust him during a 90-minute conference call held by the organization's executive committee. According to a person involved in the session, a motion to dismiss Ward was raised by Herb Perez, a member of the executive committee, but was quashed because the call was not deemed an official meeting. Nonetheless, the person said, Ward's grip on his position appeared tenuous. Perez said that Ward, who was found in January to have broken the USOC's ethics code, has "outlasted his usefulness," the person involved in the call said.

Members of the Anne Arundel County chapter of the NAACP moved closer to ousting the group's leader last night, circulating a petition at the monthly meeting asking for his resignation. Already faced with a no-confidence vote by the chapter's executive committee, Wayne Jearld, in office since January, has previously vowed to hang on to the post for the rest of his two-year term. In a letter drafted last week, members of the executive committee listed more than a dozen examples of Jearld pointedly criticizing board members and other community leaders.
