In a rowhouse kitchen near Patterson Park , a small pennant-shaped Cuban flag hangs from a cabinet above a pot of garlic and onions warming in wine, vinegar and water. Smudged and worn, the fringed banner used to hang from the rearview mirror in the Chevy pickup of Octavio Norman, a Havana-born nurse who worked at Mercy Medical Center , lived most of his life in Baltimore, and died here not long after his 59th birthday in January of 2012. Into the garlic and onions, his daughter, Elizabeth "Beth" Norman of South Collington Avenue, soon adds a simmering mix of green tomatoes, sweet red peppers, diced green bell peppers and herbs.

Taylor Murray had been waiting for this moment for two years. After trying out for the 2011 USA Basketball under-16 women's national team as a 14-year-old but not making the team, the Annapolis Area Christian rising junior had this year's tryouts circled on her calendar - her second shot to prove herself as one of the nation's top players. After four days of workouts last month in Colorado, Murray learned on May 27 that she was on the team. C.H. Flowers' De'Janae Boykin, one of Murray's former Amateur Athletic Union teammates, also made the squad, which will compete in the FIBA Americas U16 championships in Cancun, Mexico, from Wednesday through Sunday.

TRAVEL

In June 2009, my husband Sam and I slammed down the hatchback of our Honda CRV, the interior bulging with containers of Legos and books, school supplies and board games, and a box of shoes, a tin of Old Bay in the glove compartment. On the roof was a plastic carrier with as much clothing as we could stuff into it: the necessities of five soon-to-be expatriates. Everything else was in the basement of our Lutherville home, with a new family moving in at the end of the month. Our mission: to give our three children a taste of life in a foreign country, where the language, food, and culture would be vastly different from suburban Baltimore.

Even if you're not yet ready to retire, San Miguel de Allende is perfect for a vacation or long weekend getaway. Getting there United and American airlines offer connecting flights (via Texas) to San Miguel's two closest airports, Leon/Guanajuato (BJX), 90 minutes away, and Queretaro (QRO), one hour away. Round-trip airfares start around $600. Multiple airlines offer flights to Mexico City, which is three hours from San Miguel. When to go January may be the sole inclement month to travel, and even then it's nothing compared to a typical Baltimore winter.

To anyone who has followed the Orioles the past few days, I know what you're asking. Why in the world is it taking so long for Orioles reliever Luis Ayala to decide whether he's going to pitch for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic? It's a reasonable question. We've been waiting for that news going on three days now. Hopefully, we find out this morning. But the thing is, we're not really waiting on Ayala's decision. From talking to him, it sounds like he wants to represent his home country.

Orioles reliever Luis Ayala has decided he will not pitch for Mexico in next month's World Baseball Classic.

While five Orioles players plan on playing in the WBC   - center fielder Adam Jones (United States), pitcher Pedro Strop (Dominican Republic), infielder Jonathan Schoop (Netherlands), catcher Chris Robinson (Canada) and catcher Allan de San Miguel (Australia)

Michael Phelps' latest love interest is 22-year-old Sarah Herndon, according to an interview with the waitress/model from California (the same description as his previous flame, Megan Rossee, whom he dumped just after Christmas). He and Herndon met in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, just before Christmas; fished for lobster in the Bahamas after the holidays and had an evening of sushi and "Zero Dark Thirty" back in Baltimore. Here's a report. By Hugo Daniel For Coleman-Rayner Michael Phelps charmed his latest love interest on a romantic lobster fishing trip - jumping into the water and joking, "This is my home, too, you know.” Sarah Herndon was whisked to the Bahamas by the Oympic champion for a romantic five-day break of fishing, snorkeling and tropical sunsets.
