Alex Brown knows just where he was in 1977, when he learned of Elvis' demise. And in 1997, when he heard that Princess Diana had died. And on Jan. 29, 2007 — five years ago Sunday — when he got the news that, after a game fight for life, a champion racehorse named Barbaro had passed away. "You never forget, when an icon goes. The enormity of the occasion is seared in your memory," said Brown, author of the book, Greatness & Goodness: Barbaro and his Legacy . In hindsight, he said, perhaps no other thoroughbred so captured the country's heart as the undefeated 3-year-old who shattered his leg in 20 places during the 2006 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico, and spent the next seven months battling for survival at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center.

Somebody died, so somebody had to pay," Hall's father, Tyrone Sr., said as he fought back tears.

After a teenage girl was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison for beating a transgender woman at a McDonald's in Rosedale, some advocates for transgender people called the sentence too lenient. "The whole incident is unfortunate and demonstrates the lack of knowledge and understanding, and discrimination against transgender people," said Patrick Wojahn, board president of the Equality Maryland Foundation. "If anything, five years may have been too short of an amount of time for the attack and the amount of hatred that was shown in the incident.

Baltimore's spending panel voted unanimously Wednesday to change the Baltimore Arena's name to the Royal Farms Arena in exchange for about $1.2 million over five years. Under the terms of the agreement, the Baltimore-based convenience store chain — which is perhaps best known for its Western fries and fried chicken — would pay $250,000 annually to the city annually for five years. The deal would roughly triple the amount received by the city for the title sponsorship when it was known as 1st Mariner Arena . That agreement, approved in 2002, netted the city $75,000 a year before it expired at the end of 2012.

BOWIE -- As a free-agent outfielder playing in Venezuela last winter, Adam Loewen hoped to show enough to earn a chance in spring training. And then he realized that his best shot to get back to the major leagues might be what originally got him there: his prized left arm. Now with the Reading Fightin Phils, the Philadelphia Phillies' Double-A affiliate, Loewen came with his team to Double-A Bowie this week. "It's like I'm starting over every five years at something different," Loewen said Tuesday.
