Adjunct faculty members at the Maryland Institute College of Art voted to unionize this week, creating the first union representing part-time faculty members at any four-year college in the state. The MICA adjuncts began organizing in March amid dissatisfaction with what some lecturers called shaky job security and insufficient wages. Mailed-in ballots were tallied at the board's Baltimore office Tuesday by a representative of the National Labor Relations Board, with witnesses from MICA's administration and the part-time faculty committee observing the process.

Larry Webster arrived at Bloomsburg (Pa.) on a basketball scholarship. Now, after switching sports two years ago, the Elkton native is leaving the Division II school as a burgeoning NFL draft prospect. Teams are intrigued by Webster, 6 feet 6 and a lean 252 pounds, because of his pass rushing potential and athleticism. In two seasons on the football team, he piled up 88 tackles, 26 sacks, 31 tackles for losses, an interception and three forced fumbles. He also caught two touchdowns lining up at tight end and returned a blocked punt for a touchdown.

Devan Hibbs' lacrosse career was supposed to be over. As she lay motionless in a hospital bed, just hours after two foot-long rods and 12 screws were inserted into her back to prevent scoliosis from damaging her vital organs, Hibbs' body was swollen beyond recognition. "It looked like she had just been in a terrible car accident," said Dave Hibbs, Devan's father. "It was that serious. I never imagined she'd be able to play again. We just hoped she'd be able to recover and live a normal life.

The University of Baltimore will offer free tuition to college students in their final semester if they can finish their degrees in four years, the school announced Tuesday. The unusual break could boost the college's flagging graduation rates and reduce student debt loads. Dubbed "Finish4Free," the deal is to be offered to this fall's freshmen when they reach their senior year, school officials said. They were unsure how much it would cost the university. In-state students now pay about $3,300 in tuition each semester; out-of-state students pay $9,000.

Jacoby Jones was in the middle of his free agent visit with the New York Giants Wednesday when he had an epiphany. “Honestly, when I was up in New York, I was walking around and I think I came to my senses really,” Jones said Thursday after signing a four-year contract with the Ravens that could be worth as much as $14 million. “It wasn't about money. It was the fact that this is probably the one place that would let me be myself, the city, the state, the organization, the coaches.

It has been a hectic 48 hours for former Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones, whose hard work during his four years in Baltimore was rewarded with a five-year, $33 million contract from the Indianapolis Colts shortly after free agency began Tuesday afternoon. After the deal was finalized, the Colts flew Jones on their private jet to Indianapolis and he wined and dined with Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, the former Ravens defensive coordinator, on Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning, he was in the Colts facility taking physicals and meeting with his new coaches.

Towson's story was neatly summarized on the black T-shirts players wore during warm-ups. “Started from the bottom,” the shirts said in block lettering, along with “1-31,” the team's record two seasons ago. Left unsaid was that this moment - the second-seeded Tigers' opening game in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament Saturday night at Baltimore Arena - offered the promise of the next significant step in their ascent. Towson hadn't won a CAA tournament game in four years until it wore down foul-riddled James Madison and prevailed, 80-71, behind 18 points by two-time CAA Player of the Year Jerrelle Benimon and four 3-pointers and 21 points by sophomore guard Four McGlynn.

SARASOTA, FLA. -- The Orioles made their four-year deal with right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez official on Wednesday afternoon, setting the stage for a Thursday morning press conference to introduce the club's top free-agent acquisition. To make room on the 40-man roster for Jimenez, the Orioles designated right-handed pitcher Liam Hendriks for assignment. “We're looking forward to him joining,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.  “I'm not going to say [he's] competing for a starting job. I don't want to insult your intelligence.

SARASOTA, Fla. - After sitting idle through the offseason, the Orioles finally struck with a long-awaited impact signing on Monday, just days after settling into spring training. The club agreed to terms with free-agent Ubaldo Jimenez - one of the top starting pitchers remaining on the market - to a four-year deal worth a guaranteed $48 million, according to a club source. For an Orioles team that lacked headline free-agent signings in recent years, this deal - which is pending a club physical - is monumental and historic.

Tuesday marks the fourth anniversary of the Supreme Court's Citizens United v. FEC ruling, when the court ruled that corporations can spend unlimited amounts to influence elections. Our democracy is built on the basic premise that people - regardless of gender, creed, geography, states or religion - are politically equal. One person, one vote. The decision four years ago opened the floodgates for big money in our elections, enabling a small number of mega-donors to drown out the voices of average Americans.
