Brothers Justin and Jeremy Batoff are about to trade in their condominium overlooking the lacrosse fields at Johns Hopkins, their alma mater, for a Greenspring Valley farmhouse. They share a real estate portfolio. They work together at the family law firm. And they fill their free time with the same pursuits - fine art, evening games of squash, fox hunts and steeple chases. "After Justin got into racing, I figured, 'There's nothing we can do alone, so how can I get involved without actually getting on a horse?

Staff Reports, The Baltimore Sun | October 3, 2014
A project to install emergency generators at the Little Patuxent Water Reclamation Plant at 8900 Greenwood Place in Savage is scheduled to begin Monday. Three 2,500-kilowatt emergency power generators and 15-kilovolt switchgear will be installed to provide a third power source for the plant, in the event the two independent Baltimore Gas and Electric power feeds are disrupted, according to a news release from the county. The generators are part of the county's $8.1 million electrical protection system upgrade in an effort to safeguard the Water Reclamation Plant from outages that could lead to sewage overflows, such as that which occurred during Superstorm Sandy.

Let's begin with the obvious: There was enough optimism at FanFest to make even the most jaded fan pull out his cell phone and order plane tickets to Sarasota. Give the Orioles credit: They sure can put on a baseball festival. And give Orioles fans credit, too. More than 10,000 of them turned out at the Convention Center on a frozen January weekend, cheerfully enduring the traffic and parking problems caused by the big snowstorm three days earlier. (Me, I think I ended up parking somewhere in Glen Burnie.)

The following is part of a speech given by Chaplain Gittelsohn when the American cemetery on Iwo Jima was dedicated shortly after the fighting ended in 1945. I think it sums up the meaning of the Memorial Day holiday as well as anything ever written: "Here lie officers and men, Negroes and whites, rich men and poor men - together. Theirs is the highest and purest democracy. We shall not foolishly suppose, as did the last generation of America's fighting men, that victory on the battlefield will automatically guarantee the triumph of democracy at home.

With the swearing-in last week of U.S. District Judge George J. Hazel, more than half the federal district judges sitting in Maryland now are appointees of President Barack Obama, marking a generational shift that reflects the state's evolving legal culture. Hazel, 39, who was sworn in Tuesday, has been told he's the youngest district judge now sitting. He could be on the bench until 2040. "I feel extremely fortunate and privileged to have received this opportunity at any age," he said in an interview.

A new manufacturing documentary that will get an advance screening in Baltimore this week suggests that average Americans aren't powerless to stop job loss in the sector. It's a simple and surprisingly old message that has seen a resurgence since the rough recession: Buy American. The independent filmmakers behind "American Made Movie" - being released Aug. 30 - say they're not protectionists and are happy to hear about foreign-owned manufacturers with factories in this country.

A new generation of female philanthropists is growing up in Howard County thanks to the Women's Giving Circle and 14 teenagers who feel as passionately about helping others as their mothers and grandmothers. The Young Women's Giving Circle formed last year as a pilot project, with the goal of teaching high school girls how to become an informed and intentional force for good in the county. Led by high school seniors Jackie Dawson, of Mt. Hebron, and Julie Factor, of Glenelg, members of the small circle with big intentions spent the past 10 months attending workshops on grant making and fundraising, interviewing and visiting various nonprofits, all so they could learn how to raise money and then give it away to a cause they care about.

I have been a member in good standing at my community swimming pool from almost the moment I knew I was pregnant. That's probably because my sisters and I grew up at a community pool. Literally. From swim team practices in the morning to afternoons of pool tag and, finally, to swim meets at night. We lived on French fries and grilled cheese sandwiches from the snack bar. Our fingers and toes were always so wrinkly that my mother felt safe sending us to bed without a bath.

Thirty years ago, the "generation gap" referred to the cultura clash between the great demographic fertility bulge of people born between 1943 and 1960 -- the "Baby Boomers" -- and the "GI Generation" (1901-1924) that fought WWII. Today, however, a new generation gap is emerging between the grown-up "Baby (( Boomers," now in their thirties and forties, and the teen-agers and twentysomethings of the age cohort just behind them.fTC The experience of these younger Americans, the 13th generation counting back to the peers of Ben Franklin, has been markedly different from that of the Baby Boomers who preceded them, according to Neil Howe and William Strauss writing in the December issue of Atlantic magazine.

Are you ready for some foosball? The 2012 Maryland Foosball Championships will be held Feb. 17-19 at the Holiday Inn Columbia in Jessup, with 150 enthusiasts of the table soccer game competing for $12,000 in prize money. According to tournament director Chun Lee, the competition that started in Maryland in the late 1980s will return after a year's hiatus. Lee said the event was not held last year because sponsor Tornado Table Soccer could not fit it into its schedule. Lee, who has been playing the popular indoor game for 20 years, said the type of foosball being played now is much faster than it was when he started.

Four-year-old Meg Bittinger can check one item off her wish list thanks to the Howard County Recreation and Parks Department: She is learning to use a bow and arrow like her idol, Princess Merida, the heroine of the 2012 Disney movie "Brave. " Amy Bittinger, who lives in Elkridge, said her daughter "is really into princesses, but I want her to have a diversity of interests. " Archery lessons would please both of them, she reasoned, and so she became the first to register her child for the February session of Lil' Archers, an introductory class for 4- and 5-year-olds that uses rubber-tipped arrows.

Two years after merging football and fashion with splashy new football uniforms, Under Armour and Maryland were at it again Thursday night. The Baltimore-based company unveiled the next iteration of its "Maryland Pride" uniforms, featuring a Maryland-flag-inspired red jersey it says will be impossible for opposing players to grab onto. The "no grab" technology was the highlight of the "Maryland Pride 2.0" uniform that debuted in a Harbor East ceremony that included Maryland band members and Ravens wide receiver and former Terps star Torrey Smith.

There are many lingering and tragic results of racism in this nation that are likely to take generations to untangle, and one is the unfortunate state of the reputation of African-American horse jockeys from an age gone by. Iris Barnes, curator and coordinator of an upcoming exhibit on African-American jockeys to be shown at Harford Community College, summarized the place these athletes should occupy in the history of American sport: "They talk...

Joan Rivers is having a manicure and a pedicure in her hotel room while juggling a phone. "I'm in Indianapolis," she says. "I just learned how to spell it, and now I'm leaving. What a waste. " This week, between gigs in Florida and Ohio, she'll stop by the Hippodrome to dispense her trademark observations on her own world and anyone, anything that catches her attention. "When I go onstage, I just talk about what's happening," Rivers says. "My life is an open book. The other day we were stuck in Milwaukee, and they lost our luggage.

There's something about "Les Miserables" that keeps me coming back. It's not that "Les Miz," running through Sunday at the Hippodrome Theatre , is my favorite musical. Far from it. It's all too easy to point out the technical flaws in Claude-Michel Schonberg's melodies (bombastic) and Herbert Kretzmer's lyrics (unsurprising). The critics have been making these arguments for the past 27 years, and for the past 27 years, audiences have been ignoring the critics. Producer Cameron Mackintosh's much-hyped new staging incorporates brighter costumes and screen projections to simulate such effects as Paris' underground sewers.

This includes lifelong fan and current WWE superstar Zack Ryder. "There's a whole new generation of fans who are, maybe watching wrestling for the first time or watching it in addition to Raw and Smackdown," Ryder said in a phone interview Thursday.
