In 2006, when Eugene Semenov was an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins University, he volunteered at the medical clinic of Baltimore Rescue Mission, which provides free medical attention to people who are homeless. He couldn't help noticing that the record-keeping system was stuck in a pre-computer era, with volunteers tasked with taking vital signs and gathering information. The result was a lack of standardization, and a system of physical paper, which could not be transferred electronically to other doctors.

As he stood in front of hundreds of kids last year at his football clinic at Calvert Hall, Ray Rice made a promise to those in the crowd. “When I make promises, I like to keep them,” the Ravens running back said today. “I made a special promise. We said that we were going to bring a Super Bowl back to Baltimore.” The comment was met with loud cheers by those who attended the second annual Ray Rice Day in Baltimore. “Being involved in the community is just something that, winning the Super Bowl or not, I know I'd be out here doing Ray Rice Day again and I'd be telling the kids the same message every day,” Rice said.

The Baltimore Bohemian isn't your usual sports club. The team splits a case of beer at practice, it wins national championships and it plays sports you've probably never heard of. The Baltimore Gaelic Athletic Association, or BGAA, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The Bohemian, as the organization is commonly called, is separated into four teams that play traditional Irish sports such as men's and women's Gaelic football, camogie and hurling. But while that sounds like a league for displaced Irishmen - and it is to an extent - the Baltimore team is predominantly made up of people trying the games for the first time.

Dr. Joseph Peter Gutkoska, a former longtime professor and director of reading programs at Towson University who was also a decorated Korean War veteran, died Tuesday of heart failure at St. Joseph Medical Center. He was 81. Born in Baltimore and raised in Highlandtown, Dr. Gutkoska was 16 when he dropped out of Patterson Park High School to enlist in the Marine Corps in 1944. He was sent to the Pacific, but because Dr. Gutkoska was underage, he was not allowed to participate in landings.
