Cathy Teodosio, a 55-year-old special education teacher, has been biking in fundraising events for more than two decades, but next weekend's Ride to Conquer Cancer will be especially personal for her. In April 2013, her father, Joseph Teodosio, was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Soon after moving from Connecticut to Fells Point in October, she heard about the event - which benefits Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals. "It took several months with the move and his recovery for me to actually sign up for something like this, but I knew I had to do it," Cathy Teodosio said.

T here was one battle the late Sen. Charles McC. Mathias Jr. couldn't win during his 26 years in the House and Senate - where he had championed such historic causes as civil rights legislation, women's rights and restoration of the Chesapeake Bay while defying the Republican Party with his opposition to the Vietnam War - and that was concluding the Civil War for his hometown of Frederick. For all of his political power and acumen, Mathias was unable to persuade Congress to pay back the original $200,000 ransom (at 4¿ percent interest, compounded)

Francis Scott Key is so closely identified with Fort McHenry that the South Baltimore landmark is considered the go-to place to learn how the 15-starred American flag that flew after the fort's bombardment 200 years ago inspired him to write the poem that became the national anthem. But those wishing to pay their final respects to the lawyer-turned-poet could also head 50 miles west to Frederick, where Key is buried in a sprawling cemetery that runs along U.S. 40 where it shares the roadway with busy Interstate 70. "Key always wanted to be buried in the shadow of the Catoctin Mountains," said Ron Pearcey, the superintendent of Mount Olivet Cemetery.

Last week's trade between the Chicago Cubs and the Oakland Athletics, which sent pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for a prospect package that includes top 10 prospect Addison Russell, kicked off the MLB trade season in spectacular fashion. This week, we'll go through the Orioles system level by level and highlight players of value who could have new homes by the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline if the Orioles want to make a move.   High-A Frederick is where the Orioles can begin plucking the fruit of a strong 2013 draft for trade purposes, with some of the best-performing and more developmentally advanced players from that class getting their feet wet in the second half of the Carolina League.
