Minnesota Vikings running back Leroy Hoard has always been good for some tough yards and a lot of laughs.Two years ago, he was the Ravens starting running back walking around Baltimore and being identified as a Canadian Football League player. Since then he has bounced around to two teams, traded in a red Lamborghini for a black one and leased three different apartments at the same time in Cleveland, Baltimore and Minneapolis.Hoard's career has come full circle, this time playing in Baltimore against the Ravens instead of for them.

The cremated remains of 240 dogs recovered in an animal hoarding case in Montgomery County four years ago will be buried in a brief ceremony Tuesday at the pet cemetery at the Baltimore Humane Society in Reisterstown. Shelley Janashek, a volunteer for a dog rescue group who was a witness in the case, asked the society for the burial. "I didn't want them to be trash," said Janashek. "I don't have the money to bury this volume of animals. " Wendy Goldband, a spokeswoman for the society, said as far as anyone knows this is the first time the 86-year-old organization has conducted a burial for remains found under these circumstances.

Just because Ravens running back Leroy Hoard has played in a Pro Bowl, that doesn't necessarily make him a pro bowler.But Hoard is giving it his best shot, trading in his helmet and shoulder pads this week for a monogrammed bowling shirt and a pair of those funny-looking shoes.An avid bowler, Hoard received a "special exemption" by the Professional Bowlers Association that has allowed him to compete along with the best bowlers in the sport in the Greater Baltimore Open at Country Club Lanes in Rosedale.

A Baltimore criminal defense attorney has been charged in U.S. District Court with tax evasion and other financial crimes, according to records unsealed Tuesday, more than four months after his home and office were raided. Stanley Needleman, 69, is accused of “hoarding” $1.3 million in cash payments from criminal defense clients over a six-year period in order to conceal his income from the IRS. Needleman was charged by criminal information on Aug. 16. It is common for prosecutors to charge a person by criminal information if they expect the defendant to plead guilty.

The table in Jack Samuels' Fells Point office is piled two feet high with books, papers, scientific journals and grant applications. Samuels' wife likes to tease him that he has a hoarding problem, just like the people he studies. In reality, those stacks of paper might hold a remedy. Samuels, an associate professor of psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University's School of Medicine, is the go-to guy nationwide for researchers seeking to understand the biological basis of hoarding — an intense, irrational drive to collect items in vast quantities, coupled with an inability to discard even objects that are worthless or broken.

I am not a hoarder, I can say with authority. But then I start feeling like Richard "I am not a crook" Nixon. Hoarding can be a matter of degree, and although I do not have a room full of empty pizza boxes, I do have a box of cassette tapes and another of record albums, and we no longer have a cassette player or a turntable. I spent a recent Saturday clearing out junk from my back basement, and afterward felt an incredible lightness of being. But I was unable to let go of my cross-stitch projects and the box of 125 different colors of thread.

This week at the city's typically sedate Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, there's been much barking, furry things tearing at top speed though the lobby and — don't tell Marin Alsop — a wee puddle in one of the backstage hallways. Shedding, too. It's pretty safe to say that's also a first for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. The BSO is letting its hair down a bit for its annual Holiday Spectacular, which this year prominently features trainer Tony Hoard and his famous show dogs. Any fan of "America's Got Talent" will remember Hoard and Rockin' Rory, who caused a television stir last year by making it to the semifinals, where Rory's high-flying canine tricks left plenty of disappointed singing and dancing humans in his wake.

A Laurel nurse was sentenced yesterday to 15 years in prison for trying to kill her ex-husband by stabbing him in the buttock with a syringe containing a drug so potent it is used in the execution of convicted murderers -- and so easily absorbed that its presence usually goes undetected. Donald Hoard, a hospital records coordinator from Greenbelt, had gone to his ex-wife's house in March 2004 to pick up their son when Ann Hoard attacked him with the syringe and said, "I want my son back," an Anne Arundel County prosecutor said.

It didn't take long for Keith Goganious to make a mark with his new team.On Thursday, the Ravens filled a pressing need for a healthy linebacker by signing Goganious. Three days later, Goganious contributed two, first-half tackles in the Ravens' 17-10 victory over the New Orleans Saints."I was just making sure I was lined up where I was supposed to be. I haven't played in a game since December," said Goganious, who is in his fifth year and last played for Jacksonville in 1995. His last game was a loss against the Cleveland Browns in the regular-season finale, when he intercepted a pass and finished the year with 132 tackles.

Like many U.S. companies, Micros Systems cut costs last year and boosted profits this year. The Columbia-based maker of computerized sales systems for restaurants and hotels earned $32 million last quarter. That was nearly a third more than its profit for the same period in 2009, thanks partly to overseas growth and a nascent U.S. recovery. With about $600 million in cash and short-term investments, Micros has added more to its cash hoard in the last year than all but five other publicly trade Maryland companies, some of them substantially larger.
