Angel, an aging 17-year-old giraffe born and raised at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , was euthanized Tuesday, officials said. Angel long struggled with leg and back pain, which worsened recently, Dr. Ellen Bronson, the zoo's chief veterinarian, said in a statement. "While we were able to provide her with pain medicine which made her more comfortable, we realized that her quality of life was declining and the decision was made to euthanize her," Bronson said. She is the fourth older female giraffe to die at the zoo since 2008.

She was buried in a small pink coffin. But before the casket closed Friday, mourners gathered at the Israel Baptist Church in East Baltimore to say goodbye to 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, whose hair, as in many of the pictures of her that flashed on the church's large screen, was in braids with little white bows. The toddler was struck by a stray bullet outside her home in Waverly a week before. Two others were also injured in the shooting. Police sources said Friday that a person of interest turned himself in for questioning in the shooting, though no charges have been filed.

The years fade behind us, but we continue to drape this hour in mourning cloth. So let's be clear about our intent: We mark the various anniversaries of John Kennedy's death not merely as recollections of a martyred president, but as a turning point in our own vanished lives.Thirty years since the shots in Dallas? Yes, but the thing that moves us most deeply is the memory of our own innocence, our own slain hopes. Dallas is where they were buried.Kennedy is mostly our point of reference. The man we thought we knew back then turned out to be somebody else, but we remember how it was in our own hearts when we heard the terrible news, and this is the thing that still stirs us each Nov. 22. Kennedy was a last fling an entire generation had with grand illusions.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Hornets and Alonzo Mourning have reached agreement on terms for a multi-year contract, an NBA source close to the negotiations says.The agreement leaves the Hornets one step shy of ending Mourning's holdout, which has kept him out of training camp, the Hornets' entire preseason schedule and the first three games of the regular season. The team still must reduce its payroll to fit Mourning's first-season money under the NBA's $14 million-per-team salary cap.Mourning, a 6-foot-10 center from Georgetown who was the No. 2 pick in the college draft last June, could join the Hornets this week if the salary restructuring is complete.

Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning had surgery yesterday to repair a torn patellar tendon in his right knee and a quadriceps tear in the same leg. The injury, which he suffered Wednesday night in Miami's overtime loss at the Atlanta Hawks, will almost certainly keep the seven-time All-Star sidelined for the remainder of the season. Because Mourning insists that this season is his last, that would mean his career is likely finished. "I lost a brother," Heat center Shaquille O'Neal said. "I lost a partner.

LANDOVER -- Perhaps the best test of whether an opponent has been rattled on the basketball court is when the job has been so thorough that the affected party doesn't realize what has occurred.As evidence, meet Duke's Christian Laettner, the rattled, and Georgetown's Alonzo Mourning and Dikembe Mutombo, the rattlers.The Hoyas' inside forces drove Laettner to distraction at the Capital Centre last night, and as a result, sixth-ranked Georgetown squeaked out a 79-74 win over No. 5 Duke.Laettner shot an underwhelming 5-for-22 from the floor and an uncharacteristic 4-for-7 from the free throw line for 14 points.

Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning tore the patellar tendon in his right knee last night against the Atlanta Hawks. Miami spokesman Michael Lissack said an examination at Philips Arena, including X-rays, revealed the injury. Lissack said it was not immediately known whether the injury could end Mourning's season. Injuries like this typically take about three months to heal. Mourning will have more tests today. Mourning, 37, is in his 15th year in the league, including 11 seasons with Miami.

At the funeral Tuesday for Justin Nicholas Diggs, family and friends remembered a child who loved the outdoors, God and helping others. Justin, a 12-year-old Pikesville Middle School honor student, was killed July 8 when a tree fell on him during a violent thunderstorm at River Valley Ranch, a Christian summer camp in the Millers community in Carroll County. Eight other children in the camp were treated for minor injuries. During the service at New Psalmist Baptist Church in Baltimore, camp program director John Zeigenfuse recounted how Justin once told his mother he wasn't calling home often while at River Valley because he was busy helping other campers.

Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn always will be linked by a splendid Sunday in July 2007, when baseball fans massed to celebrate all that was still good in the game. The pair went into the Hall of Fame together - Gwynn, the voluble hitting wizard, and Ripken, the indestructible shortstop. They seemed to admire each other as much as the crowd appreciated them both. So Ripken reacted with sadness Monday when news emerged that Gwynn had died at age 54 after an extended battle with cancer . “This is an extraordinarily sad day,” Ripken said in a statement.

From Cherry Hill to a West Side high school a few miles away, scores of families and friends turned out Wednesday night to mourn teenagers killed in recent days, and to decry persistent violence in the city. On the block where 14-year-old Najee Thomas was killed, residents attended an anti-violence rally. Standing on the curb was the boy who lost his best friend, now too scared to go to the school bus stop alone. In the back of the crowd was the attorney who came because she was touched that Najee had aspired to be a lawyer like herself.

We join with those who mourn the young people who died in the senseless shooting at the Mall in Columbia Saturday morning. And we are grateful to those police and firefighters who fearlessly responded to the scene and extend our sympathies to those injured, both physically and emotionally, as a result of the incident. Monday was a day of healing, a time to return to normalcy at the most quintessential of suburban outposts. We believe Howard County Executive Ken Ulman took exactly the right tack in choosing to have lunch at the mall's food court.

He scored 23 points, grabbed eight rebounds, blocked three shots and was 7-for-9 from the field in leading the Hoyas (19-12)

Among the distinguished heads of state and dignitaries at Nelson Mandela's memorial service, one man stood out for the wrong reasons. The event featured a fraudster on stage pretending to be a sign language interpreter. Wilma Newhoudt-Druchen, the first deaf woman to be elected to the South African parliament (and one of the few deaf elected politicians in the world) immediately demanded that the man be removed. The impostor deprived deaf South Africans the opportunity to participate with their country in mourning, honoring and celebrating Mr. Mandela and his commitment to civil and human rights - a brazenly oppressive act that drew wide outrage.

It was clear from the beginning that Andrew Hoffman was born to be a firefighter. His father and grandfather were respected members of the city force. He wore a red fireman's hat at his first birthday party. And after hiding in a freezer during a childhood game of hide-and-seek, he told a sister that if she ever thought to try that spot, she should take a blanket with her. "He was the definition of a hero. He would help anyone at any time," said a longtime friend, Corinne Remmey, after Hoffman's funeral at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen on Saturday.
