ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters is scheduled to see Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday in Pensacola, Fla., about persistent soreness in his right elbow, the club confirmed Tuesday. Wieters started at designated hitter in Tuesday's series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, going 2-for-5 with a run scored. Backup Steve Clevenger started at catcher in Wieters' place. After the game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter offered little insight into the injury, but he said Wieters has been receiving treatment for the elbow and received an MRI during the day off Monday.

PENSACOLA, Fla. - Gov. Jeb Bush toured the devastated city of Pensacola yesterday, the Day after Ivan, to see firsthand the fury unleashed by the deadly hurricane. The storm left hundreds of thousands without power, shattered infrastructure and killed at least 39 in the United States - 14 in the Sunshine State alone. It also claimed at least 70 lives in the Caribbean before crossing the Gulf of Mexico. The storm's remnants were dissipating over the southern Appalachians yesterday. And there was more good news as the National Hurricane Center downgraded Tropical Storm Jeanne to a tropical depression and predicted that it could remain far out at sea. The local CBS affiliate had planned to air the season premiere of Survivor last night, but it pre-empted the program for coverage of Ivan.

PENSACOLA, Fla. - The Florida Panhandle - an endless vista of deep, lonely forests and clean beaches - is usually a pleasant place, but Hurricane Ivan introduced danger, uncertainty and astonishing disarray. Even something as simple as a drive from Mobile, Ala., to the far side of Pensacola - usually a straight 70-mile dash down Interstate 10 - became an eight-hour crawl through a minefield of severed power lines, splintered trees and debris in the aftermath of the violent storm. The interstate was not an option on Thursday night.

After taking a year off from school, former Forest Park shooting guard Quentin Judd has finalized his plans for a return to the classroom and the basketball court. Last week Judd, who averaged a team-high 19 points for the Foresters during the 2010-11 season, signed a letter of intent to attend Pensacola (Fla.) State College on a full basketball scholarship. “I'm proud to be a part of this moment. This sets the precedent for all of you to get through the door," Forest Park coach Greate White said to his team after Judd's signing.

PENSACOLA, Fla. - After threatening the worst, Hurricane Dennis relented yesterday, calming slightly and then making a right turn just before a landfall that largely spared Pensacola and other heavily populated parts of the Florida Panhandle. Coming ashore east of Pensacola yesterday afternoon, Dennis caused widespread flooding and power outages, closed main highways and bridges, and sent about 1.8 million people along the Gulf Coast fleeing to safety. Dennis, with winds of about 115 mph, made landfall at 3:25 p.m. on Santa Rosa Island, between Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach.

While his friends and former AAU teammates embarked on their college basketball careers, Antoine Myers toughed it out at prep school and then junior college, wondering if he'd one day join the ranks of Baltimore natives playing Division I ball. “To see what they were doing and see where I was at, knowing that I could be there, it kind of hurt my feelings at first. I was down on myself,” said Myers, a 2009 Forest Park graduate who did a fifth year at Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass., before heading to Pensacola (Fla.)

To the casual local basketball observer, it may have seemed unlikely that Forest Park would be able to duplicate the success of its 2010-11 season. The Foresters lost their top two scorers off a 17-6 team that fell to Northwestern in the title game of the Baltimore City Division II title game. Sharod Hartgrove , who averaged more than 17 points as a junior, transferred to Digital Harbor in the offseason, and Quentin Judd , who scored 20 per game, graduated. Forest Park coach Greate White , however, was confident that his 2011-12 squad could be similarly successful.

PENSACOLA, FLA. -- The schedule for the GOP's Florida Victory Rally said President Bush would be introduced to the crowd by the Republican Party's nominee for governor, Charlie Crist. The president was there, but Crist was not. And the White House signaled its unhappiness. With Bush receiving poor marks in opinion polls, some Republican candidates have indicated that they do not want to appear with him in public. Crist's campaign said that was not the case in this instance. It said the candidate had no need to spend his final campaign day in Pensacola, the site of yesterday's rally, because voters there tend to be conservative and already support him. Still, Karl Rove, Bush's chief political strategist, made a remark to reporters about Crist's decision to appear in Palm Beach and other cities instead.
