With Johnny Oates, the straightest of arrows, there's no personal or professional resentment toward the man who fired him. If Peter Angelos, who tied a tin can to his manager, much the way he might have summarily dismissed a research clerk, could have realized the in-depth qualities of the man, he would have given him a bonus and a new contract with a raise in pay.Most owners would consider themselves fortunate to have inherited a man and manager possessing the...

She paraded through the house, grabbing just about everything. Starting in the living room, she quickly progressed to the kitchen, wrapping up every spoon, fork and bowl. My friend Ashley was moving and her last-minute packing looked like a sporting event. "No, this won't fit," she said, trying to stuff a large oval vase into a tiny square box. I'd known Ashley since fifth grade, and it had been years since we sat and had a serious talk. The topic? Men, of course. I was going through some things with my (now ex-)

Matthew VanDyke, the self-styled "Arab Spring Freedom Fighter" from Baltimore, was a friend of the two American journalists who were beheaded by Islamic State militants. VanDyke met James Foley and Steven Sotloff during his travels in Libya, and it was Foley to whom he first confided what we all later came to learn - that VanDyke was neither a journalist nor a filmmaker when he was captured and held in a Libyan prison for six months in 2011. Instead, he had gone there to fight with the rebels who eventually overthrew dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Reporter Jill Rosen and I were stationed outside William Donald Schaefer's polling place in Fells Point well before 7 a.m., waiting with TV crews for his arrival when the polls opened. An hour and a half later, there was still no sign of one of Baltimore's most familiar politicians. We knew something was wrong. The obligatory early morning photo ops of candidates casting their vote are one of the few times you can be sure a politician will show up on time. Then we got word that Schaefer was at Iggy's restaurant in Little Italy for breakfast with his long-time friends and political allies.

On the day he was supposed to leave the farm and go to college, Bobby's mother came into his room at 4 a.m. and turned on the light. Bobby knew what the white glare meant. It was a bugle call, his mother's way of saying something bad had happened, she needed help, time for the new man of the house to get up. He didn't wash his face or mess with his hair or even look at himself in the mirror. Bobby Stiles wasn't that kind of teen-ager. He kept his hair stubble-short, and he owned only one nice pair of tennis shoes for the nights he drove into town to hang out with friends.

Like most returning members of the Towson State University football team, John Loch is eager to get the 1991 campaign under way.A 2-8showing by the Tigers last season, coupled with the threat by the administration to terminate the program because of financial problems, was more adversity than any starting freshman offensive tackle deserved.But Loch has managed to keep the past in perspective and the future in focus."We were not proud of our record last year, but we realized we were young," said Loch, an Arundel High graduate and one offour underclassmen on Towson's interior line last season.

Whoever decides when seasons start and seasons end thought wrong, in making Sept. 23 the official start of fall. Fall ought to begin, on the caIendar, when it begins in reality - the day after Labor Day, when the kids go back to school, and the car poois honk softly in the gray morning and the trips to Ocean City end and the football season starts and the smell of burgers grilling in the yard no longer wafts over lazy nights.It really doesn't matter what the calendar says. We knew it was fall the week before last when we heard the squirrels rustling in the tops of the tops of the trees and watched as a few unguarded nuts plunked on the sidewalk.

But mostly he knew one named Nineteen, No. 19, a time ago, on Harford Road.He was up in years, and there was time to remember. He'd lived on Harford Road when he was so small as not to remember anything before it. Always the 19 screeched by at day, rumbling at night.It was the streetcar that had taken him into the world. He'd seen it when he was small and knew it went worlds away.

In response to the letter from Comcast's beltway region Vice President Tom Coughlin ("Comcast provides competitive services in Baltimore," July 9), it was refreshing to find that you do exist, although your customers have no way of knowing that, especially if they have a service complaint. I have had to talk to people in Panama, Florida, Pennsylvania and finally in White Marsh. I could hardly make out what they were saying, and they had a hard time with me as well. How about some local trouble numbers that will connect to someone here in the Baltimore area immediately?

Just in time for Father's Day, I'd like to say happy Mother's Day to all the dads out there. It turns out, you are more like her than you knew. Long after the kids are grown and gone, a mother's body bears witness to pregnancy, childbirth and nursing. But researchers say the change may be most profound in her brain. From earliest times - and in primates and other mammals - females have become more focused as a result of having offspring. They are increasingly aware of the environment and the dangers it presents.

Tyler Johnson had been clean for more than two years, he wrote on his Facebook page. The 25-year-old Mount Airy man made a point of seeking out other struggling addicts, was active in local 12-step programs and spoke to high school students and young adults about living a sober life, friends said. But his life was cut short Saturday morning when he and Brianna Benlolo, 21, were killed in a shooting at Zumiez, the skate shop where they worked in the Mall in Columbia. Police have not established a motive for the shooting or a relationship between the victims and the alleged shooter, 19-year-old Darion Marcus Aguilar, who also died.

Keenan Reynolds changed the play. His coach had called for Reynolds to sneak up the middle, but the quarterback noticed that the defense was loading the box and thought he could get to the outside. With his team near the goal line, trailing by six points with seconds remaining, Reynolds figured he could score. "We were supposed to do a quarterback sneak, and I just ran outside because I didn't think it was going to work," Reynolds recalled. "I ended up scoring. " Reynolds was 5 years old at the time, and his touchdown gave the Gra-Mar Pirates the Mid-State Youth Football league championship.

The release of the last 340 hours of the Nixon White House tapes adds little to what we know by now about the first American president to resign. Indeed, the final installment doesn't tell us much more than we should have known about him long before the first tapes were ever released. Except for documenting his excessive use of profanity, his contempt for many political figures including those working for him, and his galloping personal insecurity, the real Richard Nixon was always there to be seen.

An Army prosecutor told a military judge Monday that Pfc. Bradley Manning drew on his military training to harvest hundreds of thousands of classified documents from military computers and dump them on the Internet, where he knew their release would endanger fellow U.S. soldiers. An attorney for Manning described the 25-year-old soldier as naive but well-intentioned, and said he released the materials because "he was hoping to make the world a better place. " The long-awaited court-martial of the onetime Marylander, who is at the center of the largest security breach in U.S. history, began at Fort Meade on Monday with opening statements from both sides.
