Joseph P. Hamper Jr., the last surviving member of the group of Orioles staff and investors who returned big-league baseball to Baltimore in 1954, died July 13 of a heart attack at the Blakehurst retirement community in Towson. He was 84. Mr. Hamper, the son of an auto parts manager and a Baltimore public school teacher, was born in Baltimore and raised on Belle Avenue. After graduating in 1942 from Forest Park High School, Mr. Hamper attended the University of Maryland before being drafted into the Army.

This was the year Bryan Hamper had waited a long time for. After five second-place finishes in the state tournament, the sixth-year coach led his alma mater, South Carroll, to a share of the Class 2A-1A state title with Kent Island. Hamper wrestled for the Cavaliers from 1997 to 2001 and won two individual state titles. He returned to the school as head coach in 2008 and has compiled a 103-29 dual-meet record. He also has coached five state champions and 23 wrestlers who placed in the state tournament.

The fact that South Carroll's Jason Hamper has found success this season won't surprise many people. The way he has done it, however, just may turn a few heads.Hamper was 24-8 last year and won Carroll County and region championships. He relied on power and strength to do most of his damage. But late last season and while working out over the summer, Hamper realized that finesse could have a place in his wrestling life.Hamper has delighted coach Pete Olson with his increased patience this season.

Mount St. Mary's search for its first win of the season has been complicated by slow starts. The Mountaineers (0-8) have begun seven contests with deficits in the first quarter. The only time they didn't trail was against Manhattan on March 9 when the score was tied 2-2. But Mount St. Mary's has been outscored, 27-6, in the opening periods, and the trend of falling behind early has caught the attention of coach Tom Gravante. “We understand that as a staff, and we're trying to make adjustments to have better starts,” he said prior to Saturday's 17-7 loss to UMBC.

Obviously, it was of no great significance to the on-field performance of the Baltimore Orioles when their head groundskeeper and chief financial officer announced their retirements recently. But, make no mistake about it, people such as Pat Santarone and Joe Hamper were an important part of what has made the Orioles an envied organization in baseball through the years.As groundskeeper, Santarone was more visible than Hamper, whose work as comptroller kept him behind the scenes. And, they were about as opposite in personality as their job descriptions -- Santarone more intense, outspoken and outgoing, and Hamper laid-back.

The proverbial "losing the battle, but winning the war" became apparent to the South Carroll wrestling team. The No. 6 Cavaliers placed 12 wrestlers in the top four in 12 of 13 weight classes to win the team portion of the Meade Invitational last night. But the victory was slightly diluted by Arundel 145-pound senior Mike Money's 7-3 upset win against reigning state champ Bryan Hamper. "It's bittersweet," South Carroll coach Pete Olson said of the team title. "My state champ goes down, and we win the tournament."

South Carroll wrestling coach Pete Olson readily admits that he's not much of a screamer when one of his Cavaliers is on the mat. And when Kellen Weber, Dan Patterson, Josh Wampler and Bryan Hamper are positioned in the circle, the longtime coach becomes practically silent. "There's not a lot to say to them because they know what they need to do," said Olson, who has been coaching in Carroll County since 1979. What the four wrestlers have done -- in addition to winning titles at last Saturday's county tournament -- is compile strong records on their way to earning high seeds in the Class 3A/4A North Regional tournament at Dundalk High today.

Two-time regional champions Dan Patterson and Bryan Hamper lead fourth-ranked South Carroll into today's state wrestling tournament at Western Maryland College. The Cavaliers are tied with No. 3 River Hill for the second-most number of qualifiers -- eight -- at the Class 4A-3A tournament. Only West regional champ North Hagerstown and East regional champ Old Mill -- with nine each -- bring more wrestlers. South Carroll, which lost the North regional crown to the Hawks from Howard County by three points last weekend, is powered by two workhorses in Patterson and Hamper.

A powerful storm system is likely to pummel military forces in and around Iraq with blinding sand and choking dust beginning Monday night, meteorologists predicted yesterday. The storm, from the same weather system that blanketed Moscow with heavy snow yesterday, will probably be nearly twice as strong as the one that grounded helicopters and limited troop movements in Kuwait Wednesday, private and government meteorologists said. Winds are expected to exceed 50 mph in gusts in southern Iraq, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, said meteorologists at Accuweather.

The FBI interviewed him and then just opened the door and said have a good day. No further attention was given him by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Why? When he left the United States and went to Russia in 2012 for six months, there was no questioning of him by the FBI at his return.

A nuclear scan helped doctors diagnose Animal Kingdom with the start of a stress fracture in his hind end. The injury won't require surgery, and the Kentucky Derby winner could return to full training after 30 days of rest and 60 days of light work. But his connections also raised the possibility of retirement so that the colt could be put out to stud. "Team Valor's interest is to run the horse for another year," Team Valor International CEO Barry Irwin said in a statement.

There have been questions surrounding Ray Lewis' lackluster play the past two weeks. Some critics have suggested that Lewis has become too old, but one opposing coach who did not want to be named has a different take. The coach has studied game film of Lewis from the past two games. "It's obvious that the toe injury hasn't healed completely and he can't push off," said the coach. "The toe is not ready. If you look back over Ray Lewis' career, one of his biggest assets was being able to get off blocks and run. Now, he can't get off blocks because he can't push off. He doesn't have the same juice in his legs.

The letter from Edith M.Cord about the Wilde Lake Village Center requires a response. Kimco has owned the property for over a decade during which it became increasingly obvious the Giant store would leave. The reasons for its departure are many and not because Wilde Lake residents weren't loyal customers until the end. Proactive entrepreneurship would have had Kimco working with residents, the village board and the WLBusiness Trust, a limited liability corporation, to minimize the effects of the loss of a grocer.
