WASHINGTON - During Bernadine Healy's tumultuous final six months as president of the American Red Cross, the nonprofit agency awarded her $1.9 million. As a result, Healy's replacement, former Rear Adm. Marsha Evans, and the agency's board have launched separate reviews of the way the Red Cross compensates its senior employees. Healy wept in public frustration when she was forced out of the top American Red Cross job in the tense and confusing aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the fall of 2001.

Two days after Towson allowed visiting Maine to convert three fourth downs and score the game-winning touchdown in the final minute of a 27-24 loss Saturday night, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose admitted that the pain continues to linger. Faced with a decision of whether to massage or discipline Towson (2-3 overall, 0-1 Colonial Athletic Association), Ambrose said he remembers to take a page from late Hall of Fame and Orioles manager Earl Weaver's playbook. “One of the best lessons I ever learned was to listen to Earl Weaver talk about his teams -- his very, very successful teams and all of the different personalities,” Ambrose said Monday afternoon during his weekly conference call arranged by the CAA. “He would tell you that once you lose - especially the ones that hurt - you've got to love them up. You've got to remind them who they can be. And when you win, that's the time when you've really got to step on them and say, 'This is what we're not doing.' It's a way to keep them motivated and focused on the next game.

I keep reading that one detective of the 50 who handle reports of rape is responsible for one-fifth of the reports labeled "unfounded." I'd like to know how he comes to be involved in so many cases, and just how many cases he handled. Less than 200 reports spread over a 50-man unit would be four cases per detective. We're told this one detective labeled 14 cases "unfounded." How many cases did he work? Is more than one detective involved in each report? Is a small set of detectives responsible for all rape reports?

When Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was asked whether Joe Flacco and the rest of the offense fully grasp his system yet, his answer was pretty interesting. He basically said "no" and that he doesn't expect them to ever have a total handle on it. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog)

Martin O'Malley and elections officials sought to assure voters yesterday that the state can handle an increased turnout without unduly long lines at polls.

At the beginning of what would become another tumultuous week, Ravens coach John Harbaugh made an observation about the Ray Rice fallout that will never sound as prescient as it does now. "We're probably not going to get away from it, and probably rightly so," Harbaugh said Monday. As the Ravens prepared for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, their organization remained under significant scrutiny for what it did and didn't do in its handling of the Rice situation. The Ravens terminated the contract of the Pro Bowl running back on Sept.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake criticized the Police Department's handling of a high-profile police brutality investigation on Wednesday, and said she had directed the police commissioner to develop a "comprehensive" plan to address brutality in the agency. Speaking to reporters at City Hall, the mayor said top commanders should have quickly seen a video of an officer repeatedly punching a man, and should have moved immediately to take the officer off the street. "It is outrageous," Rawlings-Blake said of the conduct of the officer shown in the video, whom authorities have identified as Officer Vincent E. Cosom.

The NFL has worked on several fronts to draw in female fans: holding special stadium events for women, injecting football themes into shows such as "The Biggest Loser" and expanding lines of merchandise to include not only clothing for women and girls, but household goods such as cheese boards and stemless wine glasses. But after league officials acknowledged fumbling their response to the physical altercation between Ravens running back Ray Rice and his now-wife at a casino in Atlantic City, the outreach effort is coming under closer scrutiny.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced sweeping changes to the NFL personal-conduct policy Thursday, writing in a letter to NFL owners obtained by The Baltimore Sun that discipline for domestic violence incidents will increase significantly. The NFL will suspend first-time offenders for six games. A second violation would result in a lifetime ban, though players could file for reinstatement after one year. "Violations of the Personal Conduct Policy regarding assault, battery, domestic violence and sexual assault that involve physical force will be subject to enhanced discipline," Goodell wrote in the letter.
