Mutual funds are supposed to be a simple way for the common person to invest, but that doesn't mean the average investor understands the basics of how they work. For proof, check out these questions from the reader mailbag: My 401(k) just changed the funds in the plan, and my money was moved from an S&P 500 fund worth about $100 per share to another S&P 500 fund where the shares are worth less than $40. It's supposed to be the same index, so how could the price be so different? Did something bad just happen here?

Dave Trembley isn't running a boot camp. He wants that understood. He's the Orioles' manager, not their drill sergeant. But watch how his players march to the back fields during spring training, which begins with the first workout for pitchers and catchers today. Listen closely as Trembley barks commands, sending in motion a collection of pitchers and hitters who are joined together for the common cause. Notice how crisply everyone moves from one station to the next beneath the hot South Florida sun. This is the way Trembley has envisioned his first spring in charge of the Orioles since the 2007 season came to a merciful end and he has been allowed to start planning ahead.

Fewer Americans are reading, especially for pleasure, according to a report from the National Endowment for the Arts. The report links the decline in voluntary reading to lower academic test scores, a potential for poor professional performance and decreased social engagement. Those consequences signal the need for smart interventions by schools, parents and communities. That would certainly be true in Baltimore, where standardized reading scores drop off in the middle grades and too many school libraries are either woefully inadequate or nonexistent.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- President Pervez Musharraf ended Pakistan's six-week-old state of emergency yesterday, restored the constitution and announced that he believes that emergency rule saved his country. He also said coming parliamentary elections would be "absolutely fair and transparent" and invited international observers, despite widespread fears that the elections would be fixed in favor of Musharraf and his supporters. "Some political leaders are talking about rigging when the elections take place on Jan. 8," Musharraf said in a 25-minute speech to the nation last night.

For the first day at his new job, Doug Howard took a Carroll Area Transit Service bus to work from Eldersburg to Westminster. "I thought that would be a good way to start," said the transit service's new executive director. But what if he needs to leave the office? "There's a fleet of buses if I need to go anywhere," he said. CATS, Carroll County's primary transportation service, has been without an executive director since mid-May, when Neal Roop resigned after holding the reins for the last six years, said Holly Hutchins, board of directors' president.

Ricky Treanor plopped himself down on the bench with a smile. The nearly 75-minute workout was over, and sweat poured off his forehead, but the 9-year old Annapolis boy still gripped the basketball. A star center on a team that dominated a local basketball league, he is part of the Fundamentals First camp operated by the city Department of Recreation and Parks that gets kids in shape and sharper for the winter basketball season. "It made me a better center, and I can shoot better," said Ricky, who also attended the eight-week camp last fall.

The bad news for Karen Williams was that she had to miss soccer practice. The good news was that she still got her kicks in. The Forest Hill resident skipped out on her coed indoor soccer team to challenge Ravens guard Jason Brown in a little punting contest at M&T Bank Stadium last night. Williams and Brown stood at the 15-yard line and tried to boot the football between the uprights. Williams 1, Brown 0. "This is my first time coming to the stadium and being on the field," Williams said.

Tyler Martz stood clutched a football in his left hand and waited for a coach to yell out a signal. The 12-year-old Gambrills resident dropped back five steps and looked for someone running a slant pattern over the middle. He threw a perfect strike. Tyler repeated the drill over and over at GORC Park on Monday night, one of three two-hour practices the 110-pound team holds every week. The complexities of football require that many physical actions be performed almost without thinking.
