A 33-year-old Carroll County man accused of beating his doctor-wife with a hammer has been extradited from Georgia and now faces first-degree attempted-murder charges, according to state police. Anthony Soligny of New Windsor was arrested last week near Atlanta on Interstate 85 in Franklin County after a deputy spotted his truck, a spokesman for Maryland State Police said. Police had set up a national alert for Soligny's vehicle. Soligny was transported Tuesday night from a Georgia jail to the detention center in Carroll County.

To lend our support to girls' education globally, Roland Park Country School salutes the United Nations' International Day of the Girl, which recognizes girls' rights and the unique challenges girls face, especially in education. This week also marks six months since 273 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped, and they have not yet been returned to their families. And on Friday, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Malala Yousafzai, 17, the youngest person ever to win the prize. Malala is the Pakistani teenager and education activist who was shot in the head by the Taliban on a school bus two years ago for speaking up for girls' education.

KANSAS CITY, MO. -- The Orioles will attempt an unprecedented climb out of a 2-0 hole as the American League Championship Series shifts to Kauffman Stadium. It won't be easy because the Kansas City Royals are a team brimming with confidence. The Royals arrived home having won all six of their postseason games - pulling out two tightly-contested wins over the Orioles at Camden Yards with their share of late-inning hits and celebratory histrionics - to put the Orioles' season on the brink.

President-elect Clinton faces a world that in 1993 is:Shrinking. By the Concorde, deep-dish television reception, by satellite telephone circuits, fax. No place is remote. The United .. States is in Somalia in part because the images of the starving were in American living rooms every day.Consolidating. Only recently, large blocs of nations were the coming thing. Even the United States seemed not large enough to face a single Europe, now taking effect. Hence the move to turn North America into a trading bloc, wedding Mexican labor to U.S. capital.

The throw-the-bums out mood of the September primary has left District of Columbia voters facing a confounding mix of new faces vying for seats in local government.The all-important mayoral contest gives voters a chance to effect substantial change in a city plagued by drugs, crime, corruption and a worsening financial quagmire. The candidacy of Democrat nominee Sharon Pratt Dixon, perhaps more than the populist, "get tough on crime" campaign of Republican former police chief Maurice T. Turner Jr., promises such change.

ROME -- Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's billionaire prime minister, made much of his money by offering soap operas and game shows and high-kick dancers on commercial television stations that drew almost half the country's viewers.For a man who won power in part by deploying his vast corporate resources in advertising and television, the unraveling his political fortunes has seemed an extraordinarily unscripted spectacle.Last week the prime minister was summoned before investigating magistrates in Milan to face seven hours of interrogation about suspected corruption at Fininvest, his business empire, an allegation he denies.

BOSTON - There are moments in Jon Stewart's hilarious send-up of civics textbooks, America (The Book), when the truth pops up like a jack-in-the-box. Consider The Daily Show comic's take on political campaigns: "Although the skills needed to woo voters are at times diametrically opposed to those necessary to govern them, the expensive and arduous process exists for a reason: to ensure that those who wish to govern are, if not the most qualified our country has to offer, the ones who want it the most."

Kansas City Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie will start a postseason game for the first time in his 10-year career when he faces the Orioles, his old team, on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium. What could help Guthrie is the familiarity he has with some of his former teammates in the four starts he has made since being traded three years ago, along with the success he has pitching against two of the Orioles' best hitters, Adam Jones and Nelson Cruz. Jones has just one hit in 12 at-bats against Guthrie in his career, while Cruz is 6-for-24 with one extra-base hit. Calling the opportunity “very serendipitous,” Guthrie said before Game 2 on Saturday that his knowledge in playing with and pitching against several of those he will face in Game 3 could be to his advantage.

Not long after his team finished a three-game sweep Sunday night of the league-best Los Angeles Angels, Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie received a text message from one of his former teammates. Orioles reliever Brian Matusz congratulated Guthrie and the two exchanged brief pleasantries knowing that they'd probably have a chance to speak in person very soon. When the Orioles and Royals meet in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Friday night at Camden Yards, no player from either team will be able to put the unlikely matchup in perspective quite like Guthrie.

Joy remembers the day that risking a few dollars for fun turned into a rush she couldn't control. It was Feb. 14, 2000, at the casino in Charles Town, W.Va. She plunked some money into a slot machine, and out came hundreds of dollars - and the start of an addiction she could never satisfy. "I went out with $30 and went home with $400 and that's all she wrote," she said. Like an alcoholic who needs more drinks to get drunk, she needed to wager ever larger sums to recapture the thrill.

While hospitalized with a fractured ankle and broken jaw, John Bonkowski reached for his smartphone to find details about the man who beat him outside a parking garage near the Inner Harbor. He typed "Officer Michael McSpadden" into Google. The results stunned Bonkowski. He found references showing that the longtime Baltimore officer had been accused in three separate civil lawsuits: of kicking and stomping a woman, of breaking a man's wrist and of beating a man unconscious with a police baton.

With a resurgence of violence in Ferguson, Mo., I am reminded of a revelation that I had over 30 years ago upon becoming an inner city police officer. I learned to accept, but not fully understand, that the perceived value to human life on the street in many of the downtrodden areas of America is substantially lower than it is to the police and many others living under better socio-economic circumstances. When the two cultures of diverse values clash it often results in those with higher self-esteem being forced to take actions they would not choose to take except out of a desire for self-preservation.

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton won't lie about it. Yes, in the past year, he considered what it would be like to wear a different uniform, to get a second chance elsewhere. Heading into last fall, Britton had struggled through consecutive rocky seasons in which a shoulder injury, lack of command and cracking confidence had thrust him into a career crossroads. Once considered a future ace, Britton weathered a brutal final month last season, pitching poorly in a spot start against the Cleveland Indians before being jettisoned to instructional league while his teammates were fighting in a pennant race.

When Morgan State tangles with Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State on Saturday, the Bears will see a familiar face - on the opponent's sideline. Donald Hill-Eley was Morgan State's head coach for 12 years, compiling a 59-76 record. His contract was not renewed at the end of the 2013 season, and Hill-Eley was replaced by Lee Hull, the former wide receivers coach at Maryland. Hill-Eley did not have to wait long for employment as Spartans head coach Pete Adrian hired Hill-Eley in March as the team's offensive coordinator.
