Rocket's rough ride Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune Roger Clemens is going down, just like one of the 292 guys he struck out in 1997, the year many people believe he became a steroid cheater. I have a strong feeling he's going to be convicted of lying to Congress. Clemens will try to discredit his former trainer, Brian McNamee, and he might succeed. But how's he going to take away the testimony of Andy Pettitte and possibly others who will say they knew that Clemens had used banned substances?

The chief of psychiatry at New York's famed Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center says Americans place a "terrible burden" on themselves and their families when they conclude that something in their own personality has brought on or worsened their cancer.The burden is unfair and unsupported by facts, said Dr. Jimmie C. Holland. "It's enough to get cancer without thinking you brought it on yourself."So far, she said, there is no conclusive evidence that our state of mind has any power to cause cancer or to change its outcome.

Providing incentives to our best teachers to instruct our students with the greatest needs will improve these children's education. Rewarding teachers for their exceptional efforts in improving outcomes for these students will help keep them in the classroom ( "Time to talk tenure," Aug. 24). We already do that in Maryland. A teacher with the highest performance evaluation rating for classroom work can be assisted in the repayment of academic debt with a Nancy Grasmick Teacher Award.

Ray Lewis' paid endorsement arrangement with a paging company has been put on hold as the company awaits the outcome of his murder charges in Atlanta. "We wish him the best and we hope justice is served, but we're disappointed the incident ever occurred," said Frank Lynch, chief operating officer of TSR Wireless, a Fort Lee, N.J.-based seller of pagers and paging services. Lewis has been among a handful of athletes the firm has used over the past year to appear at new store openings around the country.

The Pigskin Picking Pup doesn't want to talk about last week. None of us do. He went to sleep before the game finished, perhaps dreaming of a miracle. But he woke up on Tuesday, disappointed. "Teddy was beside himself," his dad said, "knowing he should have been 4-2 instead of 3-3. " But just the same, he's back this week, with another -- hopefully more accurate -- prediction for the outcome of this week's Ravens gave against Arizona. Go Ravens! Go Teddy!

Why was there so much shock and surprise at the low voter turnout in last Tuesday's primary elections ( "By the numbers: Tuesday's primary turnout among Maryland's lowest," June 25)? It had nothing to do with the time of year it was held or with the weak list of candidates. It was due to one thing and one thing only: Maryland is a one-party state. I voted in the Republican primary, but to my chagrin I already know what the outcome will be in November. Will I vote in November?

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Barely two months after trading for Gold Glove catcher Charles Johnson, the Orioles are scheduled to argue against him in an arbitration hearing inside a Tampa hotel suite today. The outcome could be the second-largest judgment since the owners and players instituted the process.Johnson, who won a controversial $3.3 million judgment over the Florida Marlins last February, is seeking $5.1 million compared with the Orioles' offer of $3.9 million.Barring a last-minute compromise, which Orioles general manager Frank Wren described yesterday as unlikely, a panel of three arbiters must choose one of the two figures.

FULLY 93 PERCENT of Quebec's eligible voters turned out for the referendum on sovereignty. They really cared. The outcome was so close -- 49.44 percent in favor but 50.56 percent opposed -- that nothing was decided.Technically, the bid failed. The procedure pledged by the Quebec government will not go forward. But the separatists' gain from a 60-40 loss 15 years ago was so great that their message is to continue. They have no incentive now to make Canada work.Separatists' view in any country is that if you lose a plebiscite, you hold it again and again until you win it, and the first win will be permanent and irreversible.

Minimally invasive surgery leads to fewer infections and other complications than traditional open surgery but not all hospitals are regularly offering such procedures, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University.  The researchers looked at a database of more than seven million hospitals stays at more than 1,000 hospitals and found laparoscopic methods were underused in several specific surgeries -- appendectomies, colectomies and hysterectomies, which studies have shown have better outcomes when they are done using minimally invasive techniques.

The U.S. Supreme Court delivered a setback to the Obama administration Monday by ruling that the owners of private companies may refuse on religious grounds to offer employees insurance coverage for birth control. In a 5-4 ruling, the court's conservatives found that the requirement for contraceptive coverage tied to Obama's signature health care law ran afoul of a 1993 law expanding religious freedom. The decision, written by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., could have implications not only for secular companies but also religious organizations that are seeking a more complete exemption from the same requirement, including the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catonsville-based Catholic charity.

Saturday's 9-6 loss to Patriot League rival Bucknell was an exercise in déjà vu for Navy coach Rick Sowell. For what seemed to be the umpteenth time, the team played well enough to win, but failed to execute when it mattered the most. “We feel like we've been preparing well, but we've got to continue to tweak some things,” said Sowell, whose Midshipmen (1-2 overall and 0-1 in the conference) have dropped five consecutive Patriot League games and nine of their last 10 contests.

"I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Peter Angelos and Andy MacPhail for the opportunity to serve as manager for the Baltimore Orioles for the past three years. The results on the field were not what any of us would have hoped for, and I understand that the organization felt the time was right to move in a different direction. While I am disappointed at the outcome, I feel it was a privilege to wear the Orioles uniform each day and I thank all the fans for their tremendous support.

St. Mary's (7-3 overall and 4-0 in the Capital Athletic Conference) is riding a five-game winning streak. The Seahawks haven't dropped a game since March 14 when they wilted in a 7-6 decision to No. 8 Denison, but all three losses have occurred on the road. Stevenson, which is ranked sixth in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, has won its last four contests. The Mustangs, who are 7-1 against their league rivals and have won the last six meetings, are 6-0 at home this season.

Beyond the political debates over the Affordable Care Act is a bipartisan consensus about the future of our nation's health care system. Across the political spectrum, officials and experts agree that we must shift from a near exclusive focus on treating people when they get sick to a balanced approach that also promotes health and wellness. Such a shift will both reduce costs for families and small businesses and keep many Americans from dying of preventable causes. Our health care system's heavy reliance on "fee-for-service financing" generates lackluster outcomes, despite ever-increasing costs.
