The Naval Academy is about molding military leaders, but when it comes to scaling a greased-up, 21-foot-tall obelisk, it takes teamwork. That's what propelled 19-year-old Midshipman Michael Landry to the top of a writhing human pyramid Monday. He topped the academy's Herndon Monument with a midshipman's hat after 2 hours, 19 minutes, and 35 seconds - a feat celebrated by his classmates with jumping, cheering and singing. "Plebes no more! Plebes no more!" members of the Class of 2017 chanted.

Charles Allan Herndon Jr., a pioneering broadcaster whose evening weather forecasts were a fixture of 1950s and 1960s Baltimore television, has died of complications from Alzheimer's disease. Mr. Herndon died Tuesday at Oak Crest Care Center in Parkville. He was 78. In a career that spanned more than 30 years in radio and television - and the law - Mr. Herndon was best known for the nightly weather appearances on WBAL-TV that were sponsored by the Atlantic Refining Co. For the broadcasts, he dressed in a tan-colored Atlantic service station attendant's uniform, bow tie and black-visored cap. He always ended the weather segment with a crisp salute and, looking directly into the camera, uttered the line that has since passed into local broadcasting history: "Atlantic.

The Ravens are making progress in restocking their depleted secondary. Denver Broncos cornerback Kelly Herndon, a restricted free agent, said yesterday that the Ravens made him an offer and his agent could deliver a counterproposal as early as today. "Everybody knows about the Baltimore defense," Herndon told the Rocky Mountain News. "They're always top in the league. I have a lot of respect for how they play football." A two-year starter with the Broncos, Herndon is considered a second- or third-tier talent.

The names of local NFL hopefuls Jason Corle and Warner Herndon went unheard on TV during the draft, but that doesn't mean their weekend was a lost one. Corle of Towson and Herndon of Morgan State signed free-agent contracts with NFL teams immediately after the draft, meaning they will be in rookie minicamps next month. The Buffalo Bills signed Corle, a running back, and the Seattle Seahawks picked up Herndon, a cornerback. "Warner's bigger and faster than the guys we already have here at his position," said Stump Mitchell, an assistant coach at Seattle and Herndon's former coach at Morgan State.

With a flick of his wrist, a U.S. Naval Academy baseball player from Orlando, Fla., tossed an upperclassman's hat atop the Herndon Monument on Monday, leading his 2016 classmates to launch into cheers of "Plebes no more!" amid roars from onlookers. "I was considering jumping and making it a little more dramatic," said Patrick Lien - who is a catcher, not pitcher, on the Navy team, "but I didn't want to fall and make a scene. " The Herndon climb was itself a scene: hundreds of plebes, or freshmen, charged a slickened, 21-foot tall granite obelisk at the service academy in Annapolis.

They are plebes no longer. It took two hours, 10 minutes and 13 seconds Tuesday for the freshman class at the U.S. Naval Academy to have one of its own knock a plebe's "dixie cup" hat from the top of the greased Herndon Monument and replace it with a midshipman's hat, symbolically morphing the group into 4th-class Mids. Andrew Craig, 19, of Tulsa, Okla., achieved the goal in the noisy and slippery event that drew between 800 and 1,000 plebes, officials said. Tradition holds that the student who caps the monument will be first in the class to reach the rank of admiral, though that has yet to happen.

The Naval Academy's traditional Herndon climb — a scramble to replace the hat at the top of a 21-foot-tall, lard-coated obelisk — may slip-slide away. Vice Adm. Jeffrey L. Fowler, departing superintendent of the Naval Academy, said Wednesday that the greasy climb that signals the end of freshman year every spring has an uncertain future. Though the traditional competition will take place later this month, there have been concerns about injuries as the plebes trample and tumble over each other to replace the plebe "Dixie cup" hat at the top with an upperclassman's hat. Some plebes have been hurt, but none seriously, as the midshipmen step on faces, heads and shoulders.

Delayn Partlow had a question. Looking at the empty seat beside him, Delayn put up his hand yesterday morning at Hilton Elementary School. He wanted to know whether his friend, Siedah Fields, 5, was coming to school. No, replied Patricia Barrett, the children's kindergarten teacher. Speaking quietly but clearly, Barrett told Delayn and the rest of the class that Siedah would not be coming back because she had died in a fire. "At first he just looked at me," Barrett recalled later, "and then his eyes teared and he started to cry."
