The owners of Kooper's Tavern will open a third restaurant this spring in Jacksonville, in Baltimore County.  Kooper's Jacksonville is scheduled to open in early June after renovations, including the construction of an outdoor bluestone patio, to the existing commercial property in The Manor Shopping Center, which has in recent years housed Chops Restaurant & Lounge and Henry's Bistro. The original Kooper's, in Fells Point, was launched in 1997 when owners Kate and Patrick Russell renamed the former Thames Street Tavern after their yellow Labrador retriever.

Patrick and Katie Russell have done it again. In June, the Monkton couple opened Kooper's Jacksonville, their third Kooper's location and fifth Baltimore-area restaurant. Their operation also includes two food trucks. Like the original Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point and its newer sister in Mays Chapel, Kooper's Jacksonville is a happy, casual spot. With great burgers and a strong beer selection, Kooper's is a smart choice for Jacksonville. The restaurant manages to be both a lively pub and a family-friendly dinner spot.

Fullback Shaun Chapas , 26, played in six career games for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Dallas Cowboys during the 2011 and 2012 campaigns. And offensive guard Will Rackley , 25, played three seasons for the Jaguars, starting 25 games.

As a defender, Jacksonville junior Rachel Hannon doesn't contribute the big scoring numbers that make headlines, but she draws the spotlight in another way. Hannon set a NCAA record this spring for draw controls in a season. She won 131 to break the record of 126 set by Maryland's Dana Dobbie in 2008. She also broke the record for draw controls per game, averaging 6.89 to best the 6.29 of Towson's Hillary Fratzke in 2006. In addition, Hannon set a Dolphins record for most draw controls in a game with 13, just two off the all-time mark of 15 set by Virginia Tech's Allie Emala (Bryn Mawr)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- You ask why Jacksonville? Read the sign in a downtown antique store here: "If You Believe It, They Will Come. . . . We Believe! NFL."This is a city that without self-consciousness puts the words "passion" and "football" in the same sentence, that talks about itself as a "hot market."This is the little city -- relative to the other contenders in the National Football League expansion derby -- that thought it could and did -- much to its own surprise.Jacksonville was speaking in exclamation points yesterday.

It is a city split in half by a winding river which flows the wrong way, crowned by an unusual series of colorful bridges. Nearby, the mythical Fountain of Youth flows in St. Augustine, and the Rush Hours each day last from noon to 3 p.m. as Mr. Limbaugh spews forth to a legion of local dittoheads on the airwaves.As Baltimore's shock starts to fade over the astonishing selection by the National Football League to award a team to Jacksonville, rather than Baltimore or other competing cities, many in Charm City are asking "Jackson-who?"

When Ali Brennan finished her soccer career at Miami, she wasn't quite ready to give up college sports. "My mom brought up the idea about a fifth year," Brennan said, "and when I was a freshman, there was a senior at Miami, Jimmy Graham, who was a four-year basketball player and he played a fifth year for the football team, and now he plays for the Saints in the NFL. That really intrigued me. " The McDonogh graduate planned to earn an...

Surrounded by a large crowd of NFL scouts and coaches Monday afternoon at rain-soaked Johnny Unitas Stadium, Towson star running back Terrance West cut sharply to his left and adeptly corralled an intermediate pass without breaking stride. West displayed sound hands, quick feet and impressive balance in front of 22 NFL teams during his Pro Day workout. He didn't drop a pass and maintained his footing despite a steady downpour. "If I had to run on fire, I'd do it, man," said West, a Northwestern graduate who measured in at 5 feet 9, 230 pounds.

Nearly a year after Maryland's highest court tossed out most of a $1.65 billion jury verdict against ExxonMobil Corp. in connection with a 2006 underground gasoline leak in northern Baltimore County, 43 families have settled their cases rather than return for new trials. Theodore M. Flerlage Jr., a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said Monday that two groups that had been scheduled for trial this past Monday and next Monday have settled their cases. They're the latest of four groups that have settled this month, leaving about 50 cases to be resolved.

Members of the Jacksonville coaching staff became familiar faces to Nike Baltimore Elite players and coaches over the past several months. Since the spring, City wing Tim Bond and Mount St. Joseph point guard Jaylen Adams have been at the top of the Dolphins' wish list for their 2014 recruiting class. Last week, Jacksonville's efforts paid off with a commitment from Bond . On Wednesday night, Adams followed suit by pledging to the Dolphins. “It was just the right time,” Adams said Wednesday night.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - They call this the Bold New City of the South, which is a nice way of saying that all the good nicknames were already taken, but you've got to give the people of Jacksonville credit for ingenuity. They were able to convince the NFL that they could handle the huge influx of Super Bowl tourists by bringing in cruise ships to provide thousands of overflow hotel rooms. The limbo contests are just a bonus. It's a brilliant plan for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it makes me start humming the Love Boat theme every time I look out at the St. Johns River from my cushy, land-based hotel room.

Tim Bond acknowledges that he wasn't at his best heading into Nike's third Elite Youth Basketball League session in Dallas last May. The 6-foot-5, 160-pound Nike Baltimore Elite wing had sprained his ankle about a month before, but was hoping to work his way into shape in Dallas and be close to 100 percent in Minneapolis later that month. Even if Bond wasn't quite 100 percent for the latter stages of the spring AAU season, at least one college program saw plenty of positives in his game.

Adam Yates' football career is going south - and that's a good thing. Yates, 22, a field goal kicker from Sparks, flew to Jacksonville on Wednesday where he was to sign with the Jaguars. A free agent, he impressed team officials in a three-day tryout in May, despite having played only two years of organized football - as a senior in high school, where Yates led Hereford to the Maryland Class 3A championship game in 2007, and in college, where he helped South Carolina to a No. 8 national ranking in 2012.
