But now that the Office of Personnel Management has finally released its long-awaited guidelines on phased retirement, the 63-year-old Greenbelt man might reconsider.

Some numbers to ponder while waiting for the Orioles to pull out of this "slump":They have lost 24 of their last 30 games and 35 of their last 49 dating to last season.They're five games under .500 since sweeping the Braves 277 games ago in June 1997.Yes, that's a period that has included two front office regimes, numerous personnel moves and several blueprints, but still, the pattern is impossible to miss.You can keep calling their 4-13 start a slump or a phase or whatever, but the reality is the Orioles aren't a winning ballclub and haven't been for some time.

In one of the most consequential matters considered by the Maryland General Assembly this year, lawmakers approved a bill sponsored by Gov. Martin O'Malley to raise the state's minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour. Though the final measure was substantially weaker than the governor's initial proposal - its implementation was pushed back by two years to the summer of 2018, for example, and it contains no automatic adjustment for inflation - it at least recognized that the present standard is wholly inadequate to keep low-wage workers out of poverty or do much to stimulate the economy with their spending power.

The commissioners may continue to take money from the county's water and sewer expansion fund to phase in rate increases over a three-year period.The county had originally planned to double water and sewer rates in Eldersburg and nearly double sewer rates in Hampstead in just one year. Although the ultimate increases will be just as steep, the residents would pay less the first two years if the phase-in is approved.Water and sewer rates for Eldersburg residents using 18,000 gallons of water per quarter -- a typical residential use -- would increase from the current annual average of $220 to $298 starting July 1, to $378 in 1993 and $456 by 1994 under a proposal to phase in the increases.

But even with the far-reaching court decision, some worried the rights of black institutions wouldn't be protected and tried to put the judge's ruling on the books as state law.

Republican gubernatorial candidate David R. Craig released a plan Tuesday would put Maryland on a "glide path" toward eliminating its state income tax while cutting total spending by a minimum of 3 percent a year. Craig, who has been Harford County executive for the past decade, said such a move would stimulate economic growth and halt a loss of population to states with lower taxes. "We must restore Maryland to the way it was and we need a governor who knows how to do it," he said.

J. Ernest Green, musical director of the Annapolis Chorale, has been performing with his group at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts since 1985.

" Maryland Hall is housed in the former Annapolis High School building on Chase Street, constructed in 1932. The community arts hub took over the space in 1979, and its leadership team is now planning a five-year, $18 million renovation for the building, which has seen few updates in its history.

Carr, the former director of the Defense Counterintelligence and Human Intelligence Center at the Defense Intelligence Agency, was the first witness called by prosecutors in the sentencing phase of the court-martial of Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning.

A military judge ruled Tuesday that Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning violated the Espionage Act when he gave a trove of classified material to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks to publish online. But Army Col. Denise Lind found the onetime Marylander not guilty of aiding the enemy - the most serious charge brought by the government, which carries a possible life sentence. Manning, 25, could still be sentenced to decades in prison for leaking hundreds of thousands of war logs, diplomatic cables and battlefield video footage in the largest security breach in U.S. history.
