In more than 20 years of coaching, Ken Niumatalolo has watched many players develop and grow. And even though he is in the midst of his second season with Keenan Reynolds, the Navy coach is quite impressed by the sophomore quarterback. Niumatalolo shared a story about Reynolds after he threw for a career-high 233 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 51-7 demolition of Delaware Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium . “We eat by class - seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen - and we start off with the starters,” Niumatalolo said.

The 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom was the largest political rally ever held in the nation's capital up to that time. More than 200,000 people from across the country - black and white, young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican - assembled peacefully on the National Mall to demand that a century after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed, America finally live up to its promise of equal opportunity and justice for all...

The Baltimore Summer Antiques Show returns to the convention center Aug. 22 for its 33rd season, and this year there are a couple of new twists. In addition to more than 575 international art and antique dealers and more than 200,000 items, the event will introduce Art Baltimore 2013, a show-within-a-show highlighting international fine-art galleries in the show, including Robert M. Quilter Fine Arts of Baltimore. This year there is a free mobile app, available for iPhones, to help visitors navigate the show floor — so large that a second entrance has been added.

As she stood near a skywalk leading into the Baltimore Convention Center, Holly Fawcett, a 43-year-old wife and mother from Yorktown, Va., watched as they all flooded past. The men in pink tutus. The women wearing wings and unicorn horns. The teens from places as far away as Colorado and Connecticut, sporting horses' tails, carrying stuffed ponies and high-fiving as though they've known each other forever. It was Day Two of BronyCon 2013, the "Bronies" were streaming in by the thousand, and Fawcett, in run-of-the-mill T-shirt and jeans, gazed in wonder.

As more than a hundred people gathered in the shade by the federal courthouse to protest the verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant traced a line between the shooting in Florida and the violence that has claimed the lives of scores of black men in Baltimore this year. "It would be hypocritical for us to come on this corner and cheer and shout and wave signs for Trayvon Martin and remain silent for the 120 black babies in Baltimore who have been killed with no rally," Bryant told the crowd.

Kirk Bloodsworth celebrated his 20th year of freedom Friday after he was wrongfully convicted of murder in Maryland and sentenced to death. On Saturday, he joined with activists to mark other anniversaries: 41 years since the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily halted executions and 37 years (come Tuesday) since it allowed them to resume. Dozens who gathered in front of the court Saturday want to see the death penalty permanently abolished. They kicked off a four-day vigil and fast to bring attention to the cause.

Soon after a massive tornado devastated Moore, Okla., last month, a Linthicum seamstress leaped into action, formulating a plan to help the victims. Kathy Furth began reaching out to thread-savvy friends from her parish and a local sewing organization to gauge interest. She asked them: Do you want to join forces to make clothes for children who lost everything in the disaster? The positive responses to her inquiries were overwhelming, she said. "It just spread like crazy," said Furth, owner of Sew Many Seams, a business that specializes in creating one-of-a-kind liturgical vestments.

Chanting "Free Bradley Manning" and wielding signs that read "my hero" and "Americans have the right to know," hundreds of demonstrators descended on Fort Meade on Saturday to support the soldier now facing a court-martial in the largest security breach in U.S. history. Manning, an Army private who lived in Maryland before enlisting, has acknowledged leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents, including diplomatic cables, Iraq and Afghanistan war logs and gunsight video footage of a U.S. helicopter attack in Baghdad, to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks.

Maryland's death penalty will be wiped from the books in October now that efforts to reinstate capital punishment have fallen short. The petition drive to halt repeal of the death penalty ended Friday afternoon, when organizers said they could not collect enough signatures to go forward. Meanwhile, advocates who worked for nearly a decade to end capital punishment in Maryland celebrated the final landmark in their victory. The failure is the first for MdPetitions.com, which had successfully forced a statewide vote on three laws, including same-sex marriage, in 2012.
