In a recent commentary published in The Sun, Morgan State University President David Wilson described in glowing terms a multimillion-dollar NASA grant his institution won three years ago to conduct advanced climate and Earth sciences research. Mr. Wilson called the contract, which could total $28.5 million over five years, the largest federal research grant ever awarded Morgan and a milestone in the school's quest for national recognition as a major research institution. He dismissed as mere "glitches" and "growing pains" any compliance issues Morgan had experienced in administering the grant.

Erin Sharp arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport a little less than two hours before her 9:40 a.m. flight to San Diego on Sunday, timed so that her 11-month-old son would zonk out on the plane and they would arrive home with the afternoon to spare. Instead, Sharp wouldn't leave the Anne Arundel County airport for another nine hours, she said, after an enormous ticketing line for Southwest Airlines caused her and other passengers to miss their flights and the airline couldn't immediately get her onto another.

On Tuesday night, the momentum of the Orioles' September push for a postseason berth took a hit in the eighth inning of a 7-5 loss to the New York Yankees at Camden Yards. Instead of pushing the Yankees to 2 1/2 games back of them in the American League East standings and cutting the Tampa Bay Rays' wild-card lead to 1/2 game, the Orioles did their part to bunch the wild-card standings once again. With a win, the Orioles would have ensured that the Yankees couldn't pass them in the standings here at Camden Yards and also would have clinched a season series win over New York.

COLLEGE PARK -- There was a fleeting moment, as Marylan and Georgia Tech were taking their first steps, when you thought Cole Field House might just shatter at the seams last night.Exree Hipp, one of the Terps' splendid class of freshmen, had taken and made the first shot of the night, a three-pointer, and moments later he had the ball back on the wing, bent his knees, jumped to the sky and let a shot go . . .Five-zip, a shattering din -- and why not? A young Terps team was on a seven-game winning streak and starting a new conference season -- really a new life, free of probation and blessed with new legs -- and if these freshmen were really going to be this terrific, this fearless, well, there would be no limit to how high they could go.There was only one problem: the 39 minutes left in the game, during which the young Terps were blistered, blasted and all but blasphemed, reminding any fan entertaining thoughts of an NCAA bid about the devilishly tricky existence that is life with freshmen in college basketball.

In an effort to resolve what he and others have described as "growing pains," Baltimore County schools Superintendent Joe A. Hairston met Friday with the leadership of the national nonprofit behind the district's first public charter school. Hairston sought the meeting with Virginia-based Imagine Schools to clarify several issues that emerged in the first year at the Woodlawn-area charter, which did not make adequate yearly progress this year. County and charter school officials have acknowledged challenges in establishing how Imagine Discovery fits in the system and how the district can provide support to a school it authorizes but doesn't control.

In a year when three new teams and 14 new officials joined the Canadian Football League, the growing pains are hard to miss. And it's not just in Shreveport, La., where the Pirates staggered out of the gate, and Las Vegas, where the Posse plays to thousands of empty seats.Through the season's first six weeks, officiating in the CFL has ranged from silly to inconsistent to bizarre.Silly? That was Baltimore halfback Charles Anthony getting flagged for "objectionable conduct" against Toronto in Week 1. He handed the ball to an Argos receiver after an incomplete pass.

If you can't swallow the idea, let alone the sight, of Joanna Kerns (the mom on "Growing Pains") as a Southern seductress, you are going to have a very hard time getting into "The Nightman" (9 p.m. Sunday, Channel 2).The film is directed by former "Hill Street Blues" policeman Charles Haid with an abundance of arty angles. It sets up a familiar, if sordid, love triangle involving Kerns, as the 37-year-old widow Eve, who runs a fading summer resort on the shores of a Georgia lake; Jenny Robertson as daughter Maggie, 17 and yearning for carnal experiences; and Ted Marcoux as 27-year-old Vietnam veteran Tom, who arrives to take the job as night manager of the resort, not fully aware of all his duties.

TORONTO - When the Orioles inserted two rookies into their starting rotation this season, they knew there would be some rough times ahead. Those times have arrived. After rookie left-hander Garrett Olson allowed seven runs in 3 2/3 innings Wednesday night, the club's starters' ERA jumped to 5.08, worst in the American League. "Probably four of the five guys starting now have less than a year and a half worth of starts," pitching coach Rick Kranitz said. "We can't lose sight of that. When they stumble, hopefully they learn from it and can keep moving forward."

When it comes to graceful departures, most television series are like a magician's patter: Now you see it, now you don't. But ABC tonight presents what must be a TV first, with a "Farewell Evening" for three long-running series. Hourlong wrap-up episodes of "Who's the Boss," "Growing Pains" and "MacGyver" at 8, 9 and 10 p.m. (on WJZ-TV, Channel 13) say goodbye to viewers for good -- or at least goodbye to new episodes, for repeats of all three are already running in syndication, TV's lucrative life-after-death-experience .The vast majority of shows do not make it past an initial 13 episodes, so these three have notched impressive runs: 199 episodes in eight seasons for "Boss," 166 episodes in seven seasons for "Pains" and 138 episodes in seven seasons for "MacGyver."

The inexperience that coach Tom Gravante anticipated seeing from a Mount St. Mary's team that graduated 22 seniors last May came to fruition in Saturday's scrimmage against Richmond. The Mountaineers committed 23 turnovers in four 15-minute quarters and fared poorly overall against the Spiders, who are making their college lacrosse debut this season. But Gravante said the mistakes were not shocking. “My staff anticipated not performing to our ability for a couple reasons,” he said Tuesday evening.

Almost every coach insists that a new season brings a new team. When Tom Gravante says that about Mount St. Mary's, it is not an exaggeration. The Mountaineers graduated 22 players from last year's roster. Seven were starters, including all three attackmen (Andrew Scalley, Brett Schmidt and Cody Lehrer), all three midfielders (Bryant Schmidt, Daniel Stranix and Eric Ososki) and one defenseman (John Anderson). They also bade farewell to their top faceoff specialist (Jon Marsalese), long-stick midfielder (Mark Burns)

With 21 freshmen and sophomores on his roster, Gilman coach Biff Poggi expected some growing pains and the Greyhounds sure felt them early in last night's season-opener against Good Counsel. The Falcons took a 14-0 lead in a little over three minutes and while the youth continued to show at times, the Greyhounds settled down to make critical plays late and come away with their first win over Good Counsel in three years, 20-14, in the season opener for both teams at the ESPN High School Football Kickoff Classic at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.

There's a Starbucks and an Outback Steakhouse and a growing young tech company. Soon, a Harris Teeter grocery store and a Target will be built. All are helping to draw new residents to Canton. But where to park? "I don't know of any small part of Canton where there isn't a parking problem," said Darryl Jurkiewicz, president of the Canton Community Association. His organization has been pushing city officials for months to find solutions. The Boston Street corridor in Southeast Baltimore has become the latest ground zero for a familiar battle.

A dramatic change in how Maryland pays for substance abuse treatment programs is leaving some providers short on cash and displacing more than 200 drug and alcohol addicts, even as the state's four-year transition to a new funding system has significantly increased the number of people getting help. Providers say they're worried that the instability will cause recovering addicts to lose their tenuous grip on sobriety when at least three treatment centers close their doors this summer, as the facilities deal with the unintended consequences of a state effort to broaden services.

THEY WERE the tigers of economic development. Many investors were caught when sharper ones bet against the Thai baht, the Philippine peso, the Malaysian ringgit and the Indonesian rupiah. Thailand had tied its currency to the U.S. dollar too long, and should have let it float earlier. The baht went down one-fifth.Malaysian Prime Minister Mohamad Mahathir blamed "rogue speculators," particularly George Soros, the Hungarian-born American hedge-fund tycoon whose charitable arm is underwriting democracy in Eastern Europe and clean needles in Baltimore.

The fabled monthly meetups will still be taking place next Wednesday, in bars and restaurants from Annapolis to Westminster. And grassroots "Deaniacs" from Maryland are still heading to Delaware and South Carolina to get out the vote next Tuesday. True believers, the shock troops of Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean's campaign, say they are marching on, bloodied but unbowed. Buoyed by a still unshakable belief in their candidate, they say they remain largely unfazed by the series of disappointments and upheavals of the past weeks.

Paul Cantebene had an inkling of what was ahead for the Stevenson offense. After graduating Division III's Player of the Year in attackman Jimmy Dailey, two more starting attackmen in Neal Barthelme and Richie Ford and two starting midfielders in Kyle Moffitt and Sean Calabrese, the unit was bound to get off to a slower start in 2012. And that has indeed happened as the Mustangs have scored 26 goals through their first three contests. By comparison, they scored 49 goals in their first three games of last year.

COLLEGE PARK — At one point during the Terrapins' ugly 28-13 loss to Virginia yesterday, the Maryland band struck up "Auld Lang Syne. " It was a final mournful salute to Maryland's seniors, playing their last game at Byrd Stadium. But maybe it was a subconscious wish for this nightmare of a season to be gone, too. Oh, has this been a tough year for Randy Edsall and his players. Is it too early to refer to Edsall as "embattled?" Just nine games into his first season at College Park?
