MESA, Ariz.   - Michael Phelps ended the first meet of his comeback on an odd note Friday, using his butterfly stroke to swim a 50-meter freestyle race that's never been part of his repertoire. He was swimming to tinker with his form, not to win. And the race proved a side note to a week with greater implications for the record-setting Olympian and the sport he has loved since childhood. Phelps' return sent a charge through what would have been a routine meet, and the shock waves will continue to ripple through the swimming world as long as he's around.

The Maryland Court of Appeals said Monday that the Anne Arundel County Council improperly removed a councilman from office while he served time in federal prison on tax charges in 2012. The ruling potentially opens the door for Daryl Jones to return to his seat, which he first won in 2006. Jones did not respond to requests for comment Monday, but his attorney, Linda Schuett, said, "He's very, very happy. " Jones, a Democrat who represented the northern and western parts of the county, was found guilty of failing to file tax returns and was sentenced to five months in prison.

In theory, the Supreme Court's evisceration of the Voting Rights Act sounds perfectly reasonable, even restrained. The majority opinion, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, does not eliminate the possibility that the government could require some jurisdictions to get pre-clearance from the federal government for changes to their voting systems to make sure they are not discriminatory against minorities. Rather, it merely holds that the criteria for determining which jurisdictions are covered, established in 1965, are no longer valid in a very changed world, and if Congress wants to continue the pre-clearance process, it needs to update its formula for inclusion.

Given how low the expectations were for President Barack Obama's highly publicized trip to the Middle East, it may not be saying much to declare that he exceeded them. But given the precarious state of Israeli-Palestinian relations, it would also be easy to underappreciate just how crucial his efforts may prove to be in the long quest for a lasting peace in the Middle East. When Mr. Obama arrived in Israel, he faced many who believed that the possibility of a two-state solution was on its death bed, if not gone already.

That was no small development heard the other day from the longtime president of the Maryland Senate, Thomas V. Mike Miller. The white-haired gatekeeper of the General Assembly said he would allow a vote to repeal the death penalty on the Senate floor, presumably bypassing the committee that usually blocks the legislation from getting there. This from the politician who once declared: "If there's a gallows, I'll pull the lever. If there's a gas chamber, I'll turn the valve. If it's lethal injection, I'll insert the needle.

The U.S. Supreme Court takes up the issue of racial preference in college admissions on Wednesday, and that ought to be a concern for those who believe such policies have provided countless opportunities for minorities - and enriched the educational experience for whites. There is a growing movement in this country to eliminate affirmative action on the grounds that it's no longer needed - or was even helpful in the first place. Granted, this can be a complex issue, and even the most liberal interpretations of the race-conscious policy acknowledge that a balance must be struck to make colleges diverse but also keep the admissions process fair and merit-based.

Bryant McKinnie's continued absence due to personal reasons may have forced the Ravens offense to shift Michael Oher from right to left tackle and rotate rookies Kelechi Osemele and Jack Cornell and Cord Howard at right tackle, but offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said he's not worried about not having McKinnie in camp. In fact, Cameron said McKinnie's absence has opened the door for others along the offensive line to get reps in training camp that they might not have gotten. “You just let it play out,” Cameron said.

Drunken-driving accident fatalities have been on the rise in Maryland. In 2009, 162 people lost their lives in alcohol-related crashes, a sharp increase from the year before. But time and time again, a key committee in the Maryland General Assembly has refused to support an effective prevention measure that has worked well in other states. This year could be different. The House Judiciary Committee is holding hearings this week to consider legislation intended to expand the use of ignition interlock devices that force drivers to prove their sobriety by blowing into a breathalyzer — both to start the vehicle and at periodic intervals while driving.

For more than 25 years, the highly regarded Sequoia Fund was closed to new investors. But this past spring, the mutual fund once again flung open its doors to bring in more assets. Sequoia has plenty of company. As stock prices fall and redemptions rise, many mutual funds that were off-limits for years are suddenly open. A year or so ago, about 200 out of the 7,000 U.S. mutual funds were closed, says Russel Kinnel, director of mutual fund research at Morningstar Inc. Now, it's about 40 or 50. Investment companies close funds to new investors for all sorts of reasons.

If necessity is the mother of invention, then Baltimore was a major beneficiary last weekend, as organizers of the annual Artscape festival took a pressing need for more space and turned it into a creative way to promote an emerging arts district. This year's new, expanded layout reinvigorated the 27-year-old event - billed as America's largest free public arts festival - by providing room for a wider range of activities that gave people more to see and do than ever. The expanded mix of activities, in turn, brought more people to the 100-acre Station North Arts and Entertainment District in one weekend than months of planning sessions by city agencies and consultants plotting which properties to redevelop and what uses to introduce.
