Devin Cook's community college lacrosse coach said that the 20-year-old, a business major who was active in lacrosse leagues around the city, wanted to use sports as a way of getting a scholarship and completing college. He had recently earned enough - he worked two jobs - to buy a car and was taking his fellow lacrosse players at the Community College of Baltimore County home after a game last Thursday night. They were stopped in the car on Wilern Avenue in Park Heights when a gunman killed Mr. Cook and wounded his passenger, a fellow lacrosse player.

When conductor Marin Alsop won a MacArthur "genius" award, she was in the throes of the most serious crisis of her career. And the very public vote of confidence that the award provided gave her the boost she needed to face down her naysayers For author and historian Taylor Branch, the financial windfall meant he no longer had to work quite as many part-time jobs to support his family during the 24 years it took him to complete his trilogy about...

Loyola Maryland assistant coach David Metzbower will join North Carolina's lacrosse coaching staff as the offensive coordinator, multiple sources have told Inside Lacrosse. Metzbower will replace Pat Myers, the Tar Heels' former offensive coach and recruiting coordinator, who was let go in May and has since been hired at Penn.

As an attorney for the disabled and a wheelchair user himself, Dale Reid knows how hard it can be for a person who can't walk to perform the simple act of voting. For the next year and a half, Reid will be able to concentrate on changing that. As one of 10 "community fellows" to be announced today by the Open Society Institute in Baltimore, he will receive a grant to work full time investigating the accessibility of the city schools, churches and union halls that serve as polling places.

For midshipman Duncan Mamer, the skipper of a Navy 44, the waiting was the hardest part of the 19th biennial Annapolis-Bermuda Race. "The prevailing conditions for this race were mostly just lots and lots of light air," said Mamer, a Caldwell, Iowa, resident and rising senior on the Naval Academy's varsity offshore sailing team. "Whether it was on the Chesapeake [Bay] or half an hour from the finish line, we definitely spent our fair share of time drifting around. "The biggest challenge was definitely just always trying to keep the boat moving.

Whatever roster moves the Orioles make this week or next will be independent of what happens with third baseman Manny Machado, since it looks like his situation won't be resolved soon. Machado is appealing the five-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball this week after he threw his bat in Sunday's loss to the Oakland Athletics. The Orioles were considering several roster potential moves in case Machado dropped his appeal or his hearing was held during the upcoming road trip to Tampa Bay and New York.

The late, great New York senator, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, famously said, "You are entitled to your opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts. " That sentiment, however wise, seems sadly quaint in an era when many Americans strongly prefer a "reality" that conforms to their opinion, not to objective facts. A fresh case in point is Marco Rubio, the boyish Florida senator who is considered a serious contender for the U.S. presidency in 2016. Sunday, on ABC's "This Week," Mr. Rubio said, "I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it," adding that he also did "not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it, except it will destroy our economy.

Today the Towson Library is an impressive three-story brick and concrete bastion of literacy with a tower-like rotunda, a faux dragon in a faux fish pond, and enough space to accommodate the administrative offices of the Baltimore County Public Library system. The library chalked up 475,495 visits during the last fiscal year. It remains one of the busiest branches in the BCPL system. But in 1936 its beginning was less than propitious. The first borrower was a gentleman who took out a book on taxidermy, according to a history written by Corky Ives, branch manager from 1980 to 1998.

Faith is making a comeback among liberal Democrats, but they still have a ways to go. First, some history. Hoping to attract some Evangelical Christian votes more than 20 years ago, former vice president Al Gore wrote that the biblical story of Noah and the Ark could be paraphrased in modern terms, "Thou shalt preserve biodiversity" ("Earth in the Balance" p. 245). Mr. Gore also claimed the first recorded instance of pollution was when Cain killed Abel and Abel's blood "falls on the ground, rendering it fallow" (p. 247)

Del. Don Dwyer is spending his final day in jail Sunday, completing a 60-day sentence for his 2013 drunken-driving and drunken-boating convictions. But while that debt to society will be paid, the Anne Arundel Republican acknowledges there's a political price that may yet come in next month's GOP primary - in which six challengers are vying to oust him. "They're all targeting me," said Dwyer, who has represented a Pasadena-based district for three terms. District 31B has two seats, and both Dwyer and fellow GOP incumbent Del. Nic Kipke are seeking to hold on to them.

COLLEGE PARK - The last time fans saw Deon Long, the Maryland wide receiver lie sprawled on the Wake Forest turf before being driven away by ambulance for what turned out to be season-ending fractures of the tibia and fibula in his lower right leg. It was a game that lives in Terps infamy. Fellow receiver Stefon Diggs - the team's best-known player - suffered a broken fibula in the same, excruciating 34-10 Maryland loss in the seventh game of 2013. "It was freaky, it was real freaky," Long said of having the team's top receivers, who had combined for 66 catches, suffer similar season-ending injuries in the same game.

A man taking a series of photographs on a MARC train in Odenton on Tuesday morning was briefly detained by federal agents after raising concerns among fellow passengers. The man, who has not been identified, turned out to be a self-described "train enthusiast" who represented no danger, said 1 s t Sgt. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, which assisted in the short-lived investigation. Just after 8 a.m., the No. 419 train made its stop in the Odenton MARC Station just as the station was being checked by a Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR)
