Scott Dorsey, the chairman and CEO of Merritt Properties, knows he sometimes meets raised eyebrows when he identifies himself as a developer. As a leader of a company with the largest privately held real estate portfolio in the state, it's an attitude he wants to change. "There's been a perception that we don't really need more growth," he said. "We do need growth. It needs to be done right. " Merritt Properties, which was founded by his cousin Leroy Merritt, had 12 workers when Dorsey joined in 1972 and today employs about 160 people.

After his 5-month-old daughter, Adelyn, was diagnosed with the rare brain disorder Aicardi syndrome, Trent Stroup immediately took action. He and his wife, Tina, visited several clinics to try to find the one best suited to treat their daughter. Since deciding on the Johns Hopkins Epilepsy Center, Stroup has made it his mission to raise money for the center - not only to help his daughter, but also to get closer to finding a cure for all children affected by the disorder. One major part of Stroup's fundraising efforts is the Tri To Help Indoor Triathlon For Epilepsy, now in its ninth year.

He also won the high jump and the 800. All in all, he helped Gilman score 40 points as the Greyhounds rolled to a fourth straight team title.

The investment banker, the lumber salesman, the kindergarten teacher and the meteorologist all came out Saturday for the Baltimore Ravens' cheerleading tryouts for one reason: the right to bear pompoms. Kristie Tapper of Stevensville — the mother of 1-year-old twins — was one of the roughly 250 men and women who turned out for the open tryouts on the basketball court of Merritt Downtown Athletic Club in Mount Vernon for one of the 60 coveted sideline spots. Tapper and the other hopefuls practiced their eight-count dance steps while En Vogue's "Free Your Mind" played over the booming speakers.

Lavelva Merritt was sentenced to an additional five years in prison Monday after a judge ruled that she violated her probation from an earlier drug case when she and a boyfriend attacked a Johns Hopkins researcher last year, the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office announced. Merritt, 25, was previously sentenced to 30 years in prison — with half of the time suspended — for robbing Stephen Pitcairn as he walked home along St. Paul Street in July 2010. Her boyfriend, John Wagner, was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years for stabbing Pitcairn to death during the robbery.

Lavelva Merritt, who helped rob a Johns Hopkins researcher last year as her boyfriend murdered him, was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday under a plea deal struck in May, though half the time was suspended, making her eligible for parole in roughly six years. The term is short compared with the life sentence her accomplice, John Wagner, received last month after an emotional trial in Baltimore Circuit Court, but it reflects her cooperation in the case, prosecutors said. "Without Ms. Merritt's testimony, I'm not sure whether we would have been successful" in convicting Wagner, Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein said Monday.

A violation of probation hearing for Lavelva Princess Merritt, who pleaded guilty to robbery charges in connection with the stabbing death last year of a young Johns Hopkins researcher, was postponed Friday because she mistakenly wasn't transported from jail for the proceeding. The new hearing date is set for Dec. 9, though it may be held earlier if it's combined with a separate sentencing for the robbery convictions, tentatively scheduled for late October or early November. Merritt admitted helping her boyfriend, John Wagner, rob Stephen Pitcairn of his wallet and iPhone on July 25, 2010, two days shy of the researcher's 24 t h birthday.
