DETROIT -- As left-handed reliever Andrew Miller spoke to the media in the clubhouse hallway Sunday night after the Orioles' American League Division Series clincher in Detroit, he was interrupted by a bellow. "You did it, Andrew," said the excited voice. "You did it. " Miller smiled and shook hands with the giddy man to his right: Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who acquired Miller in a July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Whether you're an Orioles fan or you just happen to run the organization, it's hard not to be pumped about what Miller has done in his two-plus months in Baltimore.

When I came to Baltimore-based Erickson Living to work as a public relations summer intern, I imagined I would enrich my professional experiences and skills but never dreamed I'd walk away with such a wealth of knowledge on memory care, memory health and memory fitness. With more than 5 million Americans now suffering from Alzheimer's disease, the timing could not have been better to help raise awareness for the Erickson Living-managed Charlestown retirement community's Memory Support Program and funds for Alzheimer's research.

You don't need to be a ballerina to get the muscle tone and posture of a dancer. At the Bel Air Athletic Club's barre class, you'll navigate the same waist-height handrail prima ballerinas use for warmups, no pointe shoes required. “With barre, it's really the perfect exercise for a woman's body,” says Lori Berry, a fitness instructor at Bel Air Athletic Club who teaches barre. “In the beginning, you use 3- to 5-pound weights, and again, it's isometric movements, so you may be working your biceps with a smaller range and it's less weight.” Whereas Pilates, a more commonly known workout, works with a smaller number of repetitions and focuses on the quality of the reps, barre is the opposite, according to Berry.

There are always studies showing how many people are obese and overweight. Well if more places around the world had free classes, such as yoga or biking, more people would be out getting into shape. It all comes down to money: People who have enough money can buy memberships in order to work out, but people that lack money are unable to do so. When one doesn't work out they will only gain weight. No matter how healthy you eat, there are many factors that contribute to how healthy you live in life.

State lawmakers and educators are right to be concerned about how much time it presently takes to clear or dismiss teachers accused of misconduct. When teachers are yanked out of their classrooms for months or even years while allegations of wrongdoing are investigated, both they and their students suffer from the absence. Maryland's school districts need to expedite the process by which such cases are resolved, but they must do so in a way that is fair to teachers while protecting the vulnerable young people entrusted to their care.

Kelly Johnson has worn an Orioles uniform for just two weeks, but he already owns his own little part of Oriole Magic. Derek Jeter, who was Johnson's teammate for most of this season with the New York Yankees, was the main attraction this weekend in his final regular-season visit to Camden Yards. As has been the case in Jeter's other final stops this season, the Orioles pretty much rolled out the orange carpet for him, giving him a U.S. Navy captain's hat, a bushel of steamed crabs, an oversized crab mallet, a custom-made cake and a $10,000 donation in his name to the Miracle League of Manasota (Fla.)

Your headline on the Jan. 3 letter, "Columbia Association official says club is a solid investment," seems like an eerie echo from the past. This rosy prediction for CA's high-end fitness club recalls the myth CA staff  were promulgating 20-some years ago about the Fairway Hills Golf Course. That's Fairway Hills, as in the golf course that, since its opening in FY'96, has lost money every year, for a total of $8,637,000. This is a far cry from what CA staff projected when they sought $5.2 million from the CA Board to develop Fairway Hills.

After the pain of Towson cutting its men's soccer program in March 2013 had subsided, Kay Banjo was faced with a life-changing decision: He could go pro and try out for Major League Soccer or finish his undergraduate degree and then use his final year of eligibility elsewhere. It was a no-brainer. "My dad has always been big on education, and I know I'm not going to play soccer my whole life, and I need to have something to fall back on," Banjo said. "I had one more semester to graduate.
