There was lots of drama Sunday at the LPGA's Kia Classic in Carlsbad, Calif. Not only did Sweden's Anna Nordqvist rally for a one-shot victory, but Lexi Thompson gave the U.S. team a huge boost for this summer's inaugural International Crown at Caves Valley Golf Club. Thompson's strong finish of four birdies on the last six holes - including one on the final hole - lifted the 19-year-old Floridian to ninth in the Rolex World Rankings. It also helped give the four-player U.S. team the No. 1 seed among the eight countries that will be represented in Owings Mills in late July.

Dan Rodricks has done it again ( "With Democrats like these, who needs GOP?" March 27). He just hates the people who have done the most for the country and have been paid properly for doing so. Now, he can't stand the thought of those people being able to pass their wealth on to their descendants without the government (federal and state) snatching part of it. We should recognize that the various governments have been taking part of their earnings for years, probably most of their lives.

Baltimore County officials, former Negro League Baseball players and fans enjoyed "opening day" a few days early Thursday as the county formally unveiled the Hubert V. Simmons Museum of Negro Leagues Baseball in the Owings Mills branch of the Baltimore County Public Library. At the ceremony, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz honored the late Hubert "Bert" Simmons, who played for the Baltimore Elite Giants in the 1950s and for whom the museum is named. Audrey Simmons, his widow, and Ray Banks, a lifelong friend of Simmons, thanked the county for facilitating the museum in the community - five years after "Bert" Simmons' death and 73 years after he began playing baseball in the Negro Baseball Leagues.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 25, 2014
Commentary is absolutely in order on last week's decision by the powers that be in the management of the high school athletics programs in Harford and Cecil counties to do away with the upper vs. lower division so-called title games. But what to say? One possibility: It's about time. After all, had the practice been done away with after the first season or two of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference, maybe the odd custom could have been chalked up to a paperwork mistake in devising the league.

Bus drivers, dispatchers and other public transit employees in Baltimore will vote for a new local union president next week, following the ouster of their elected president by national union officials. Union officials said Janice Murray was removed as president of the 2,600-member Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1300 because she owed the organization $200 in travel expenses from six years ago. Murray's victory was appealed by a rival candidate, the local's former president, who said unpaid travel expenses invalidated her candidacy.

Last April, Kip Berman was in Baltimore, playing his first-ever set without his indie-pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart behind him. It had been two years since the release of “Belong,” Pains' scope-widening second album, and a nervous Berman was unsure how the solo set would go. To his surprise, that Baltimore performance returned Berman to his simpler songwriting roots. “The best songs are the ones you can play by yourself on stage,” Berman said on the phone last week from his Brooklyn, N.Y., apartment.

Developers of the Foundry Row retail project in Owings Mills say they are on track to start construction this summer on a $140 million shopping center featuring Baltimore County's second Wegmans grocery store. In an opinion issued this week, the county Board of Appeals upheld an administrative law judge's earlier decision to approve the development at the site of the former Solo Cup plant on Reisterstown Road. And Thursday, officials at Greenberg Gibbons, the center developer, said their company has settled a lawsuit that Solo Cup filed against it involving damage to energy plant equipment on the 50-acre property.
