Spencer finished with a time of 14:57 seconds, 0.11 seconds faster than Taylor Selber of Long Reach. “I was seeded first to win,” Spencer said, “so I wanted to prove to everybody that I could make it.” During the preliminaries, Spencer had to run her race a second time -- at the end of the meet -- after the hurdles fell down while she was running.

LOS ANGELES -- Roney, Roney, all the recruiters wanted Roney. Every time Woodlawn High track coach Dick Estes tried to sell his other top hurdler, he'd be rudely interrupted.Keep the dress socks, the recruiters said.Give us the three-piece suit.Only Torrance Zellner wasn't an accessory.

HOLLYWOOD -- Zoe Heller sold the film rights to her acclaimed novel What Was She Thinking? Notes on a Scandal with a simple promise to herself: "I made up my mind very early that if you sell the rights to someone, you're handing it over to someone to do with it what they will. It's a losing proposition to kind of remain proprietorial," she said. Which is not to say that she wasn't hopeful. She had known of Patrick Marber, the screenwriter hired to translate her Booker Prize finalist novel for the screen, since they overlapped at Oxford University in the early 1980s.

Brown has become one of the area's most versatile athletes during her time at Milford Mill, but she really blossomed in the past few seasons and led the Millers to a second-place finish in Class 3A at the state championship meet. A versatile athlete who can compete in both sprints and hurdles, she also runs relays and set four Baltimore County records - two on sprints and two more on hurdles - as Milford Mill won the Baltimore County and Class 3A North titles.

A proposed natural gas export facility in Southern Maryland cleared another hurdle Thursday, when a federal review found the controversial project poses no significant risks to nearby residents' safety and no major environmental impacts. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff concluded that "with appropriate mitigating measures" the $3.8 billion project could go forward to build a gas liquefaction plant, a gas-fired power plant and to convert an existing import terminal at Cove Point, on the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.'s parent struck a $6.9 billion deal Wednesday to acquire Pepco Holdings Inc., 16 years after BGE walked away from a protracted effort to buy its southern neighbor. Chicago-based Exelon Corp.'s purchase of Pepco Holdings Inc. in Washington would extend its presence substantially in both Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic. But analysts warned that this second attempt at combining Maryland's two biggest utilties could be difficult to consummate because it requires approval from regulators in three states and D.C. To make the deal more palatable, Exelon turned to its playbook for the successful 2012 acquisition of BGE owner Constellation Energy, Baltimore's last Fortune 500 company.

Significant demographic obstacles stand in the path of the state's achieving its goal of ensuring that 55 percent of its population has a two-year post-secondary degree or higher by 2025. The baby boom "echo" - a primarily white phenomenon that resulted in a temporary increase in high school graduates beginning in 1995 - is over. The number of white graduates is now declining steadily and will continue to do so for some time to come. During the upturn, many campuses raised their admissions standards significantly to take advantage of the growing pool of relatively affluent and well-prepared students graduating from high school.

Baltimore has not had an NBA team to call its own since 1973, and despite occasional murmurings of interest from city leaders, there is no sign that will change anytime soon. The city will host the Washington Wizards for the first time since 1999 for a Thursday night exhibition against the New York Knicks and Baltimore native Carmelo Anthony. Tickets for that event have sold well, with a full house possible at Baltimore Arena. But major obstacles stand in the way of Baltimore even flirting with the NBA. The league has shown little recent interest in expanding.
