An influential association that represents Mount Washington homeowners has voted to take a hard-line stance against allowing slot machines at Pimlico Race Course. The Mount Washington Improvement Association decided at a meeting late Tuesday to alter its previous position on expanded gambling for the racetrack, which borders Mount Washington. The group previously said that it was opposed to slots "unless certain conditions were met" to mitigate the impact on the neighborhoods, said association President Jan Franz.

MINNEAPOLIS - The Orioles opened a 40-man roster spot Sunday when they outrighted infielder David Adams to Double-A Bowie. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the move wasn't related to another pending transaction, but he said the flexibility it created would help the club. “I know the reason in which it was done at that time,” Showalter said. “But I'm not going to broadcast it. It has nothing to do with a pending move that I'm aware of. But it does open up some possibilities … if you have somebody not on the roster that you want to bring up. It's always good to have that maneuverability, that's some of it. But why that timing?

The Maryland Terrapins are Atlantic Coast Conference champions for the first time in 22 years, and they don't have to play another game to prove it. Thanks to Virginia's come-from-behind, 87-84 win over the No. 3 Duke men's basketball team last night at University Hall in Charlottesville, Va., the second-ranked Terps clinched the ACC title without having to beat Virginia on Sunday in the final game at Cole Field House. Maryland coach Gary Williams, who has spent all 13 of his years in College Park chasing an outright regular-season ACC crown, gets to enjoy his second outright league title in 24 years of coaching.

The Orioles activated left-hander Troy Patton between the two games of the doubleheader Thursday after he completed a 25-game suspension for testing positive for Adderall use. The Orioles' first game Thursday was their 25th of the season, meaning Patton had to be activated before the nightcap. To make room for Patton on the roster, the club outrighted right-hander Josh Stinson, who cleared waivers, to Triple-A Norfolk. Stinson had a 7.15 ERA in 11 1/3 innings over seven appearances with the Orioles this year.

A day after Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette mentioned Cord Phelps as an option for the starting second base job, the Orioles outrighted the 25-year-old to Triple-A Norfolk after he cleared waivers. Duquette said once the club acquired Jemile Weeks in the Jim Johnson trade last week, it had a reasonable chance of slipping Phelps through waivers. The Orioles currently have 37 players on the 40-man roster, but will likely add reliever Ryan Webb today once he passes his physical.

The Orioles have reinstated right-hander Eric Beaulac from the 15-day disabled list and outrighted him to Triple-A Norfolk. The move is purely clerical. The major league club selected Beaulac's contract from Double-A Bowie on Sept. 1 and immediately placed him on the 15-day disabled list in a move that would have created an extra injury replacement spot for a postseason roster.   In creating their 25-man rosters for the postseason, clubs could use DL spots to add players not on the major league roster by Sept.

Geroy Simon didn't know what to expect when he signed as a rookie free agent with the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1999. Fourteen years later, the former Maryland wide receiver has torn through the CFL record books on his way to becoming the most prolific pass catcher in league history. The 38-year-old Simon holds the CFL record for receiving yards (16,188), and he tied Ben Cahoon's record for most career receptions (1,017) last week. He can break that mark Sunday when his Saskatchewan Roughriders visit the Montreal Alouettes.

Outfielder Chris Dickerson will remain in the Orioles organization as the club announced it has outrighted him to Triple-A Norfolk. Dickerson cleared waivers Sunday afternoon and could have refused the assignment to Norfolk. But the Orioles wanted to keep Dickerson -- who plays all three outfield positions -- for his versatility. And Dickerson knows that he can be back in the majors quickly, considering the Orioles make so many roster moves. The Orioles had previously been trying to deal Dickerson, who was designated for assignment July 19. Dickerson recorded a .245/.274/.412 line with four homers and 13 RBIs in 46 games, primarily as a left-handed designated hitter.

Outfielder Chris Dickerson, who was designated for assignment last Friday when Henry Urrutia and Danny Valencia joined the Orioles, has been placed on outright waivers, according to an industry source. The Orioles had been trying to deal Dickerson, but apparently could not find a deal involving the 31-year-old. If he is not claimed on waivers - teams only have to pay a $20,000 claiming fee, while picking up his remaining salary and placing him on the 25-man roster - then he will be outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.

Cartoonist Garry Trudeau's latest attempt at humor was the most despicable, vile and disingenuous display of untruth ever published in The Sun ("Doonesbury," Jan. 17). I guess Mr. Trudeau conveniently forgot how the Democrats here in Maryland pulled off the most outrageous gerrymandering act ever. And to intimate that the only way Republicans can win in the future is by suppressing votes goes way beyond the pale. Shame on The Sun and shame on Mr. Trudeau for his disgusting, unfunny cartoon.

Having successfully pushed for historic changes in Maryland laws regarding expanded casino gambling, in-state college tuition rates for some undocumented-immigrant students, and the right of gay people to marry, Gov. Martin O'Malley is now in a position to address one of the last great pieces of unfinished business of his time in Annapolis: abolishing the state's death penalty. Mr. O'Malley, who opposes capital punishment on religious and practical grounds, reportedly is considering whether to ask the legislature to take up the matter again when it meets in January.
