TWO AND A HALF years after the explosion aboard the battleship Iowa that killed 47 sailors, the event remains a tragic mystery. What changed dramatically Wednesday was that the Navy acknowledged it could live with the mystery. No closer to a definitive explanation, it announced that it had repudiated its original charge that one of the crewmen who died was responsible.The evidence, some of it washed overboard as survivors cleaned up and attended to the dead and injured, remains bafflingly incomplete.

Last week, Thomas Rhett walked with his wife through a Nashville Walmart in search of an electric dog fence. While strolling the aisles, the 24-year-old country singer-songwriter passed the music section and spotted his debut album, October's “It Goes Like This,” on the shelves. “There's a Walmart literally every five miles from here to Seattle, Washington,” Rhett said on the phone afterward. “Knowing that your face is on all those racks in Target, Best Buy and all those places, it makes you feel very, very small.” As his star has grown among the country ranks, Rhett - who plays a free Power Plant Live concert on Friday to celebrate the opening of new country bar Tin Roof - has embraced humility.

Three famous men died on Nov. 22, 1963. The one getting the most attention, understandably, is John F. Kennedy. Less so the other two: Aldous Huxley, author of the futuristic novel "Brave New World," and Clive Staples Lewis. Of the three, it was Mr. Lewis who not only was the most influential of his time, but whose reach extends to these times and likely beyond. His many books continue to sell and the number of people whose lives have been changed by his writing expands each year.

Thousands of miles away from his new baseball home, Jones is wondering what his future holds, too. He has already talked to longtime Ravens star Ray Lewis about the linebacker's experiences as a professional athlete in Baltimore. He has met Jim Palmer and knows plenty about Brooks Robinson and Cal Ripken Jr., though he's interested in learning more.

Along the asphalt roads of the Villages of Tall Trees apartment complex, young Anthony Lawston ran nightly wind sprints for football training -- past the drug dealers, prostitutes and crackles of gunfire.For Anthony, the seediness of that Essex neighborhood was all too familiar. Born to a mother who was addicted to crack cocaine -- and was later imprisoned for drug dealing -- his football skills had helped him push forward, toward a goal of playing in the National Football League. So even on those crime-ridden streets, he kept running, despite the gunfire.

For most of the year, Daniel Wubah is a dedicated department chairman at Towson University, overseeing 700 biology students, 25 faculty members and cutting-edge research on fungi and cow stomachs.But this week, the Ghanaian native will trade his academic hat for ceremonial kente robes and gold trinkets when he returns home to assume the role of opanyin, or ruler, of a farming village of 9,000.It is a double life that Wubah -- who lives in Owings Mills with his wife, Judith, and two children -- has led since 1994, when his grandfather died and he inherited the top post in Gyinanadze, a medium-sized Ghanaian town whose rhythmic name means "resting under a big tree."

On the Orioles' rushing players to the majors [Sidney] Ponson, [Luis] Matos, [Larry] Bigbie and [Jerry] Hairston: more time in the minors would not have made a difference in these cases. Can't make a purse out of a sow's ear. Matt Riley was rushed to the majors. If I remember correctly, the O's had a set of circumstances ... they were out of arms and brought him up to fill a hole. Perhaps most important in a young player is the elusive "makeup." Generally that means maturity and humility to go along with a calm and subtle confidence.

In more than 20 years of coaching, Ken Niumatalolo has watched many players develop and grow. And even though he is in the midst of his second season with Keenan Reynolds, the Navy coach is quite impressed by the sophomore quarterback. Niumatalolo shared a story about Reynolds after he threw for a career-high 233 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 51-7 demolition of Delaware Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium . “We eat by class - seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen - and we start off with the starters,” Niumatalolo said.

By coincidence, last Easter I was in St. Peter's Square in Rome as Pope Benedict XVI delivered what turned out to be his final Easter Mass as head of the Catholic Church. A week from Sunday, the new pope will deliver his first. Expectations for Pope Francis are high. The Argentine, formerly Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, is the first Jesuit pope, and the first from the Americas. Here's hoping he will lead the church into a more transparent and progressive era. But hoping is not the same as hopeful.

Crystal Sewell knows what she wants to see in the next pope: a combination of the last two. "I'm a conservative soul," the 29-year-old Reservoir Hill woman said Monday after the midday Mass at St. Alphonsus Church in downtown Baltimore. "I feel like John Paul II had this particular zeal for youth and that brought the youth closer to the Church. Benedict took over with instilling older traditions into today's youth, which brings a whole new focus on what it means to be Catholic today.

Rejected first draft of Donald Trump's final announcement about his political intentions in 2012. First, let me say how proud I am of myself for heckling Barack Obama until he produced the "long form" of his birth certificate, something no white president managing two wars and a budget crisis has ever been asked to do. At long last, the national debate can move on to other idiotic conspiracy theories, which I may or may not exploit to...

The impending restart of peace talks between Palestinians and Israelis here in Washington Thursday calls to mind the many opportunities that slipped through the fingers of peacemakers in the past. What is essential now is to avert the mistakes of those talks — especially the pride and haggling that dragged down hopes of millions of people for a better and peaceful life. I was sitting in the front row in Sharm el Sheikh on Oct. 16, 2000, when President Bill Clinton came out for a press conference, flanked by Ehud Barak for Israel and Yasser Arafat for the Palestinians.

Ravens fans should apologize to team Now that the Ravens have been eliminated from the playoffs, their fans should offer the team some sort of apology for putting on it the desire to exact revenge against the Colts. The Ravens are not here to fight our war by proxy. We stood by the Ravens all these years only to abandon them as we put our desires ahead of theirs. As a Colts fan from years past, I am well-aware of the pain caused by their abandoning the city, but that is something that really needs to be put to rest.

Baltimore lawyer and sports agent Ron Shapiro reaches into his pocket and pulls out a Ravens business card reading "Special Advisor to the Owner." Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti says he created the title to demonstrate that Shapiro holds a significant, if little-known, place with his football team and in his life. Quietly, Shapiro - better known as Cal Ripken Jr.'s agent - advised Bisciotti during the buyout of former owner Art Modell under which Bisciotti took control of the Ravens in 2004.
