The Orioles' hope of adding a free-agent pitcher took a bit of a hit Thursday when left-hander Jason Vargas signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Kansas City Royals. Vargas, 30, has been someone the Orioles have coveted for years - former pitching coach Rick Adair had Vargas in Seattle and loved the lefty. And so the Orioles made trade overtures in three different seasons to try and get Vargas, but never found a deal to their liking. That the Orioles didn't land Vargas in free agency shouldn't be disappointing for the club, however.

Jasmine White was accepted to Morgan State University, her dream college, almost 10 years ago. But the New Yorker discovered she could not afford the out-of-state tuition. "I just started crying because I had no idea where I was going to get [the money] before class started," White recalled. Instead of coming to Baltimore, she earned an associate's degree at a community college in New York, and served five years in the Army Reserve. Now 26, she is finally enrolling at Morgan State this fall.

`TC PASADENA, Calif. -- The biggest win in American soccer history? Sure. Of course it is. Shoot, it's practically the only win in American soccer history.Before yesterday's 2-1 defeat of Colombia at the Rose Bowl, the United States had won only three World Cup games -- two when Herbert Hoover was president. The only U.S. win since 1930 was a 1-0 defeat of England in 1950 that is considered one of soccer's greatest upsets.Beating Colombia is bigger. More important. Sure. Of course it is. It happened at home, with millions watching on television, with the United States actually paying a little bit of attention to soccer for the first time.

Certain numbers just seem right. Nine innings of baseball. Seven deadly sins. Four years of college.Better strike that last one off the list. Because of the ever-growing cost of education and lifestyle choices, most students earning their undergraduate degrees this spring from four-year colleges and universities will not have graduated in four years.In Maryland, slightly fewer than one-quarter of all full-time students at the state's public colleges graduate in four years. The numbers are only a bit higher nationally for all campuses.

Seven years after the University of Baltimore admitted its first freshman class, new President Kurt L. Schmoke is considering a return to the school's roots as an upper-division college that enrolled only juniors and seniors. The enrollment growth that came with the first underclassmen in 2007 has stagnated. UB enrolls about 200 freshmen each fall, and the university still attracts mostly transfers and graduate students. In an interview Friday, Schmoke spoke of flat public funding and a need to work more efficiently.

This week, millions of young people head to college and universities, aiming for a four-year liberal arts degree. They assume that degree is the only gateway to the American middle class. It shouldn't be. For one thing, a four-year liberal arts degree is hugely expensive. Too many young people graduate laden with debts that take years if not decades to pay off. And too many of them can't find good jobs when they graduate, in any event. So they have to settle for jobs that don't require four years of college.

CHICAGO -- Struggling Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez was sent to the bullpen Tuesday, bumping him from a crowded starting rotation in a move that seemed destined to occur since his last rocky outing over the weekend in Cleveland. Before Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, Orioles mananger Buck Showalter announced his rotation through Monday, and Jimenez wasn't among the starters. He will be available out of the bullpen starting Wednesday. Showalter didn't rule out the possibility of using Jimenez as a spot starter, but at this point Jimenez seems destined for mop-up duty out of the bullpen.

 For more than 60 years with hardly a break, the Republican Partyhas chosen as its standard-bearer someone who has been able to claim it's his turn. Not since military hero Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, whose supporters so contended in 1952, has a conspicuous outsider run away with the prize. Patience nearly always has been rewarded for party stalwarts, whether it was Richard Nixon in 1960, Barry Goldwater in 1964, Nixon again in 1968, Gerald Ford in 1976, Ronald Reagan in 1980, the senior George Bush in 1988, Bob Dole in 1996, the junior George Bushin 2000, John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012.

The Social Security Administration is overhauling its internal anti-discrimination program after federal auditors found that the agency failed to establish an adequate system for handling employee claims. Auditors from the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported in May that the Woodlawn-based agency had failed to follow regulations on addressing workplace discrimination complaints, had manipulated data to boost case completion rates and might have allowed managers to interfere in what were supposed to be impartial investigations.

One popular theory of lawyer Marilyn Mosby's upset win over incumbent State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein was that race played a deciding role in the election, helping a political newcomer oust a white prosecutor in a majority-black city. But Baltimore residents voted less along racial lines than they did four years ago when Bernstein knocked off veteran top city prosecutor Patricia Jessamy with overwhelming support in white neighborhoods, a Baltimore Sun analysis shows. An analysis of census data and precinct-by-precinct election results shows that Bernstein's support eroded in South, Southeast and North Baltimore - which contain the heavy-voting, majority-white neighborhoods of Federal Hill, Canton and Roland Park, respectively.

Another day passed without free-agent first baseman Carlos Delgado choosing which team he'll play for in 2005 and beyond. Another day when rumors swirled, reports conflicted and the number of teams vying for his services returned to three. Eliminated by agent David Sloane late Sunday night, the New York Mets sprung to life again yesterday morning. The two sides resumed discussions, and it's believed the Mets have the best offer on the table - four years and more than $50 million. The Orioles, meanwhile, have increased their offer to at least $48 million over four years, industry sources said, and Sloane spoke again yesterday with executive vice president Jim Beattie.

In the four years that Jeff Shirk has coached Washington College, the program has qualified for the NCAA tournament three times. This spring, the team reached the national semifinals for the first time since 2004. That may seem like a remarkable achievement, but Shirk downplayed that feat when compared to schools that have enjoyed a certain amount of longevity when it comes to the postseason. “We were talking about it as coaching staff that it's so impressive when you consider the teams that do this year in and year out,” he said.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. is asking for its fourth rate increase in as many years, one that would raise distribution charges to residents getting both gas and electric service by nearly $15 a month on average. The utility filed the $185 million request Wednesday with Maryland regulators, who have reduced past requests significantly. BGE said it's in the middle of a multiyear effort to upgrade infrastructure in order to improve service, and it needs to cover its costs. The company wants permission to raise distribution rates - the charge for moving energy to customers - by $6.57 a month on the average residential electric bill and $8.53 a month on the average residential gas bill.
