Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs has played nine seasons, all of them with the Ravens. That's just a little bit more than half of Ray Lewis' tenure with the organization, and the Suggs spoke Thursday of the 13-time Pro Bowler's value to the franchise. “If you have the opportunity to play seven years in this league, you're very fortunate,” Suggs said. “What people don't see, what people don't understand is that he's in his 16th year, and he's still outplaying half the guys today - majority of the guys today, excuse me. Like I said, it's a different persona when 52's not in the middle, when 52's not making the calls, or 52's not lining us up. He's definitely the leader.

Wedded to the mantra that money is better spent on experiences than on the latest roll-out from Apple, we visited Ikaria, the deliciously isolated and funky island in the Aegean Sea. It so happened that all four of my grandparents were born on this hardscrabble terrain between 1890 and 1895, before landing at Ellis Island. From the time I was small, for my amusement and enjoyment, they indulged my fantasies about this dusty gem, a 35-minute flight from the capital city of Athens, but within sight of the coast of Turkey.

Midyear notes about your money: MUTUAL MEMO: "Fund performance - not the manager's longevity - is what matters," said Burton Greenwald, fund consultant. "Many managers with long experience performed badly in this bull market. Another warning: If a top-performing manager quits, watch the fund for six months, compare it with similar funds, then decide what to do." BE ALERT: "Check that your IRA beneficiary designations are properly on file as you approach age 70 1/2 because IRA trustees can lose paperwork on elections made many years ago."

Almost every morning, Ushi Okushima rises from her futon and heads across the street for a vigorous sunrise walk on a sandy Okinawan beach. Later, some friends join her for morning tea before she heads to her fields. There, swinging a 4-pound hoe, a barefoot Okushima will chop the weeds around her radish and carrot plants for hours, thinking about her menu for the coming New Year's festivities. Okushima turned 100 in August. "I never get sick, and my blood pressure is very stable," Okushima says.

Anquan Boldin is the 10th-oldest player on the Ravens roster, but the wide receiver isn't bemoaning his status in a sport that covets speed and youth. In fact, Boldin is grateful that he is entering his 10th year in the NFL. “I count my blessings every time I come out because the life expectancy in this league is about three years,” he said after Monday's practice at the team's training facility in Owings Mills. “So when you find a guy like [inside linebacker] Ray Lewis who's played 17 years or [free safety]

It's been more than a quarter century since someone other than Thomas V. Mike Miller was president of the Maryland Senate and almost a decade since House of Delegates Speaker Michael E. Busch was first chosen for his post. Today, when the two chambers of the General Assembly elect their leaders as the annual session begins, the political odd couple of Miller and Busch will become the longest-serving pair of presiding officers in any state in the nation. At a lunch gathering Tuesday of the state's top Democrats, U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer hailed the two as "the president for life and speaker forever.

In his 16th year with the Ravens and in the NFL, Ray Lewis continues to amaze with his longevity and high level of play. Some day, Lewis will take a long look at his accomplishments and decide that this chapter of his life has come to an end. And when he does make that decision, the 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker said he would consider coaching. Joking that he must begin by coaching his sons, Lewis acknowledged his interest in joining the coaching ranks. “If the opportunity presents itself to whatever opens up, it opens up,” he said Thursday.

The organization represents about 4,000 employees."We refused to negotiate," said Thomas J. Paolino, union president. "If they renege on this contract the Board of Education will lose all credibility with employees, the public and the elected officials of the county."

About a month after last season ended, Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano received a text from a friend that read: "I'm watching one of your players run in the sand for an hour. " Later that morning, another text flashed on Pagano's phone: "Now, I'm watching your player swim 30 minutes in the ocean. " When Pagano finally asked for the name of the player, it was as if he already knew the answer: Ray Lewis. The enduring face of the franchise is entering his 16th season - a feat impressive for any NFL player, much less an inside linebacker - and the secret of Lewis' longevity is really no secret at all. The 36-year-old Lewis prides himself on outworking everyone, whether it's on the field, in film study or inside the weight room.
