Shawn Pleffner, 24, took a lead off second base at the minor-league complex of the Washington Nationals at Viera, Fla., on a 72-degree day. The former Arundel High School standout was among a group of four top minor-league prospects working on leads on fly balls. "Get a secondary lead. Get a good one," shouted Gary Cathcart, an instructor in the Nationals' farm system. It might seem at first glance that Pleffner, a 6-foot-5, 225-pounder with the build of an NFL linebacker, would be better off just honing his skill at the bat. But learning to run the bases is among the tasks the first baseman faces on the east coast of Florida during spring training sessions that begin around 8 a.m. "A good example is Cal Ripken Jr. ," Pleffner said of the Orioles' Hall of Famer.

When developers promised to build a $38 million, 700-seat elementary school in Odenton, Anne Arundel County officials embraced the proposal as a way to ease overcrowding in other area schools. They even tentatively gave the school a name: Evergreen Elementary. But plans for the school have met an obstacle. The Forks of the Patuxent, the community in which the proposed development is located, refuses to lift a covenant that the land be reserved for adult communities. Forks resident Patrick Padilla, 42, said residents who declined to lift the covenant requiring 55-and-older properties were concerned that a new housing development around the school would generate more traffic and crime without the age restriction.

A lawsuit alleging that the ex-president of the Odenton Volunteer Fire Company sexually abused two former volunteers when they were teenage recruits and that their complaints went unheeded has ended in a six-figure settlement. "In the world of public entities, it is particularly significant settlement," said Joyce E. Smithey, attorney for the men, who were unnamed in the lawsuit against the fire company and Anne Arundel County. The settlement, reached in the spring, plus a recent end to a dispute over legal fees, wraps up a lawsuit filed in January 2008 based on allegations of sexual wrongdoing that one accuser said began in 2003, when he was 19, and the other said started in 2004, when he was 16. The lawsuit was a significant factor in the county's decision not to insure volunteer companies for anything beyond fire and rescue operation as of last July 1. "The whole thing about being an insurer is to have some say over how to limit the risk," said Anne Arundel County Attorney Jonathan Hodgson.

When Airman Steven Doty was the first to rush to the scene of a downed helicopter in the Nuristan province of Afghanistan, he didn't consider the possibility that he might have been putting his own life in jeopardy. On May 3, 2010, a Russian aircraft bringing supplies to Kalagush, a military base that had been the target of several attacks, dropped suddenly to the ground as a result of mechanical failures. Doty, who worked at the base, leaped into action after observing the crash on a monitor at the base's joint operations command center.
