Ryan Minor took a few steps out of the Orioles' dugout last night, turned to look inside, then jogged slowly to third base. Perhaps he was checking to make sure no one was following him.Eleven days had passed since Minor's promotion from Double-A, and already he was treading on sacred ground. He hoped only to keep from falling.Without warning, Minor took the position that had belonged exclusively to Cal Ripken for the past two seasons, ending a consecutive-games streak that stretched to eternity.

The Baltimore City Council on Monday unanimously approved Federal Hill Neighborhood Association President Eric T. Costello to fill a vacant seat, but several members expressed concern over a process they said lacked true community involvement. Costello, 33, a New York native, is an auditor in the U.S. Government Accountability Office. After the council vote, he was sworn in by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and took his seat representing the 11th District, which includes Federal Hill, Bolton Hill and downtown.

A future in the NFL is very much in doubt for running back Ray Rice after the Ravens terminated his $35 million contract Monday hours after a video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancee in February at an Atlantic City, N.J., casino. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also suspended Rice indefinitely after previously suspending the three-time Pro Bowler for two games for a violation of the NFL personal-conduct policy stemming from the felony aggravated assault case. Rice was in Maryland on Monday and is distraught and concerned about his uncertain outlook after being fired from his job and punished for the second time by the NFL, according to sources.

State Senate candidate Bill Ferguson represents all that Baltimore could be and Sen. George W. Della Jr. all that it is. Senator Della is not "old school" he is "one room school house. " Favors owed and favors given over the course of Mr. Della's career may reelect him, but it will be a great opportunity lost for Baltimore. I hope Mr. Ferguson can pull this out. Go Bill!

Atwood "Woody" Collins III, an executive vice president with M&T Bank, recently gave us his perspective on the future ("Taking a look at Baltimore's future," June 6). His view boils down to three elements: First, Baltimore's advantage of a deep-water port and its location in the center of the Eastern Seaboard. Second, the need to continue to attract entrepreneurial businesses. And third, the natural advantage of our waterfront, and its transition from industrial to residential tourism uses.

I read your article about the proposed maglev train with interest but was surprised that you did not write more about the one that is operational in Shanghai, China ( "Billions lined up for 'maglev,'" Sept. 4). It was built by Siemens and runs from downtown to the airport. I rode on it and they have a speed meter on it which gets to 400 kilometers per hour (or 260 miles per hour). It was very smooth and comfortable. One interesting thing our guide mentioned is that all of the drivers are women because the men would not go fast enough for the schedule.

First, let me acknowledge the following: The Baltimore harbor is still too polluted, too many Baltimoreans still throw too much trash in the street; we need better results from the city's public schools and more involved parents of school-age kids; we need to lower property taxes; we need to better support city businesses; we need to foster healthy morale and principled duty among teachers, firefighters and police officers, and they need to be adequately...

Last month's enactment of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), so long in the making, is a milestone. It makes important updates to our workforce training system and demonstrates national support for the expanded use of sector strategies that forge training partnerships between employers, nonprofits, foundations and public agencies. But WIOA is still just a first step in addressing the problem of connecting people to jobs. We need to build on it to establish a true and equitable apprenticeship system in the United States.

Day after day, someone somewhere discusses the state of classical music, typically with a degree of concern about its long-term survivability. This has been going on for ages, of course, but it has generated something of a cottage industry in recent years. Trepidation about the years ahead is especially prevalent and understandable right now, thanks to such things as the testy contract negotiations going on at the Metropolitan Opera and the recent labor/management battles at the Minnesota Orchestra.

Shawne Merriman dreamed of becoming either a professional football player or a professional wrestler while growing up in Upper Marlboro. While his NFL dream was completed with his retirement last year, his wrestling dream is on its way to becoming a reality. These days, Merriman also keeps busy between his responsibilities as a football analyst and the work he is doing to help grow his “Lights Out” apparel and accessory line. “When people say they're living a dream, it feels like that,” said Merriman, who was a first-round pick of the San Diego Chargers in 2005 after a standout college career at Maryland.

The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.

A century ago in spring training, a rawboned Orioles rookie stepped to the plate, swung from the heels and hit a fastball deep to right field. The ball landed in a rut in a cornfield, more than 400 feet from home plate. In Fayetteville, N.C., a historic marker notes the spot where George Herman Ruth, 19, hit his first professional home run in his first outing as an Oriole in 1914. He wasn't yet The Babe - teammates would pin that nickname on him within the month - but he surely was Baltimore's own. That Ruth began his career with his hometown team surprises many, sports historian Mark Millikin said.

John Steven Ltd. has been closed since early this week, but its owner said he hopes to have the Fells Point tavern reopened soon. Lyle Michael Farmer said he was planning to have the tavern back open this weekend but would give no details about the reason for its closing. "It's a very difficult economic climate," he said. "I'm doing the best I can. " Occupying the picturesque corner of Thames and South Ann streets, the tavern was opened by Charles "Chuck" Doering in 1978 in what was then Five Points Tavern, an old sailor bar. Doering renamed the tavern John Steven Ltd. after his son Matthew's teddy bear.
