Anne Arundel County's former sheriff, George F. Johnson IV, is joining the race for county executive as a Democrat. Johnson, a Pasadena resident who has been the superintendent of the state's Natural Resources Police for the past seven years, will kick off his campaign Saturday. Johnson has been down this road before: In 2006, he lost the county executive's race to John R. Leopold, who was re-elected in 2010 and resigned in 2013 after being convicted of misconduct. Johnson served as elected sheriff from 1994 until 2006.

It's gotten to be that one of the hallmarks of the State of the Union address is its Seinfeldian nature. Every year it seems that the speech becomes a speech about nothing, as presidents throw out all sorts of grandiose ideas, policies and program proposals that never amount to a hill of beans, making me personally wish we could return to the pre-Wilsonian days of a written message. Just last year President Barack Obama outlined seven major policy initiatives that never even got off the ground, while the rest of his proposals have a very limited track record of success . Before the president took to the podium last night, the biggest story was about the unilateral implementation of a $10.10 minimum wage for employees working under federal contracts.

I had a chance to talk today to former Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, who signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the rival New York Yankees. Roberts, 36, can make up to $4.6 million total in 2014 if he reaches 650 plate appearances (it's an escalating bonus scale that starts at 250 plate appearances). He is coming off a four-year, $40 million contract extension with the Orioles, the organization that selected him as a supplemental first-round pick in the 1999 first-year player draft.

Stevenson became the eighth program since 1980 to capture the Division III national title, and with that, the team finds itself in an unusual position. As the NCAA champion, the Mustangs have become the biggest “get” on opponents' schedules. They also are trying to ward off contenders who would love nothing more than to saddle Stevenson with a loss and prevent the team from successfully defending the national crown it worked so hard to earn on Memorial Day weekend. “It's new for us, that's for sure,” coach Paul Cantabene said.

Ending months of speculation, conservative activist and real estate executive Larry Hogan is getting into the race for governor, running as a political outsider to "bring fiscal responsibility and common sense to Annapolis. " The former appointments secretary for the state's last Republican governor, Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., is to formally announce Tuesday evening in Annapolis that he's seeking the GOP nomination. He joins three other Republican contenders who despite launching campaigns months ago have yet to raise much money or garner a lot of attention in a bid to end Democratic dominance of state government.

Randy Edsall was a 38-year-old defensive backs coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars when wide receiver Keenan McCardell arrived as a free agent for the 1996 season. McCardell, who came from the Cleveland Browns, became one of the most valuable acquisitions in the franchise's history, amassing 499 catches and 30 touchdowns over the next six seasons before departing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Edsall had an insider's view - and occasionally a stressful one - of McCardell's development.

A former Army intelligence specialist pleaded guilty Monday to destroying his computer in an attempt to cover his tracks before flying to Africa in a bid to join the Somali militant group al-Shabaab. Craig Benedict Baxam, 26, of Laurel was sentenced in a Baltimore federal courtroom to seven years in prison on the charge of destroying records he thought could be used in a terrorism investigation. The case tested the limits of federal terrorism laws, as prosecution and defense took fundamentally different views of whether Baxam's effort to join the group in 2011 amounted to an attempt to help a terrorist group.
