Pacers forward Danny Granger , the team's leading scorer, will be out for at least four weeks with a foot injury. The team said Tuesday that Granger would miss a minimum of four to six weeks with a torn right plantar fascia, the tissue across the bottom of the foot connecting the heel and toes. The Pacers say Granger won't need surgery and is starting rehabilitation. Granger left the floor in the third quarter of Saturday's game against the Clippers. Granger is averaging 24.4 points a game this season for the Pacers, who have lost nine of their last 10 games following a five-game winning streak.

College freshmen are completing their first month on campus. According to the website  The Other Freshman 15 , "The first 15 weeks of college can be the riskiest for sexual assault. ... One out of five students experience rape or sexual assault while they are in college, and in the great majority of cases (75-80 percent), the victim knows the attacker. " The  Washington Post  recently carried a front-page story about campus sexual assaults. As the father of former college students, two of whom are daughters, I was stunned by the presumptions in the story.

In response to Randall Miller's letter about the Baltimore Grand Prix, I feel I must defend The Sun ("Why is the Sun determined to kill the Grand Prix?" May 15). Baltimore is also my hometown of 56 years. For the past three years I have been a Delaware resident, but I still can't completely break ties, so I buy The Sun every day. Of course Mr. Miller may feel good about sitting back and watching the race on television for free. Who could possibly be against that? Except maybe the taxpayers of Baltimore, who are footing the bill.

Eluding cornerbacks with quick moves or tossing them aside with a mean stiff arm, wide receiver Steve Smith has been busy establishing himself as the Ravens' top offensive weapon through two games. Smith has been thrown to a team-high 25 times heading into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, making 13 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown. Signed to a three-year, $11 million contract in March, the five-time Pro Bowl selection quickly has become the featured wide receiver that Andre Johnson was in Gary Kubiak's Houston Texans offense.

First, let me say that I am not opposed to rental units in Ocean City . I live on a canal in Montego Bay and directly across from my home is a huge home rented every week during the season. I have seen some horrific antics but have never complained. They only stay for one week. I agree that either the real estate agents or the owners should enforce whatever rules apply to that unit or neighborhood. My problem with The Sun's editorial ( " Ocean City 's rental rage," Aug. 19)

Third in a summer series highlighting dream homes on the water. When Wendy and Alex Haig set out five years ago to find the perfect weekend retreat, they were torn between two different bucolic areas: the rolling horse country of Middleburg, Va., and the wide expanse of the Chesapeake Bay. "The bay very clearly won out," Wendy Haig says. Alex Haig, a lawyer and son of former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, and his wife, a managing partner for a marketing strategy company, wanted a place where they could relax with family and friends and escape from the pressures of Washington.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's plan to beautify the approaches to Baltimore for visitors arriving by rail may seem like a triumph of style over substance in efforts to revitalize the city's image. But first impressions really do count, and the mayor is right that it doesn't have to be the depressing landscape of boarded-up houses and trash-strewn yards that greets rail passengers today. In the grand scheme of things, sprucing up the route along which travelers pass as they enter the city won't by itself transform Baltimore's fortunes.

A 12-foot tiger shark may have slipped past locals, but it made an appearance in Ocean City over the weekend according to a non-profit that studies sharks. Septima a 1,000-pound, 12-foot-8-inch female shark tagged by researchers at Ocearch surfaced twice in the Isle of Wight Bay, which empties into the Atlantic at the inlet, between 2:29 and 3:10 p.m. on Aug. 1, according to tracking equipment managed by the non-profit. Ocearch tagged the mature shark on May 30 this year and has tracked its movements since, with pings along the Atlantic Coast from the Carolinas to the New Jersey area, where it was last recorded on Monday afternoon.

Cornell attackman Rob Pannell sustained a broken bone in his left foot and left during the third quarter against Army on Saturday. He won't play against Canisius tonight, sources close to the situation said. Pannell had surgery Monday to repair the damage and, while a timeline for his return has yet to be clarified, this type of repair typically sidelines athletes for at least six weeks, a source said. Perhaps most significantly, Pannell will not be lost for the season, contrary to widespread rumors.

It's a measure of how bitter the partisan divide in Washington has become that yesterday House Republicans voted overwhelmingly to authorize Speaker John Boenher to bring a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for failing to enforce a provision of the health care law that those same lawmakers have voted to repeal scores of times. Dislike of Mr. Obama runs so deep in the House Republican caucus that members are even willing to vote against their own interests if they think it will hurt the president.

Between the crises in the Middle East and Ukraine and the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, it's difficult to get domestic news on the front page this week, let alone good news. But the improved finances of Medicare deserve the public's attention, particularly given that the much-maligned Affordable Care Act is involved. Here's the bottom line: Medicare paid out less in hospital benefits last year than it did the year before. This is a fantastic development because, according to projections contained in an annual report released Monday, it means that Medicare will have enough money to continue paying for the hospital care of the elderly and disabled through 2030, which is four years longer than the federal government estimated for the program just last year.
