It was the first day of camp, a busy day at the swimming pool of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills. Amid the happy splashing, lifeguard Jalina Ray spotted something that didn't look right. She got the attention of fellow lifeguard Andrew Minkin, and pointed to an 8-year-old thrashing underwater. "I originally thought it was just a kid messing around at the bottom of the pool," said Minkin, 18, a senior at the McDonogh School. "When he didn't surface after 10 seconds, I became really concerned.

1. Matt Abbott is the U.S. team's most important player One of the strongest reactions to the U.S. team's 23-man roster was the lack of a third short-stick defensive midfielder, and that criticism was exacerbated by  injuries to Dan Burns and Kyle Harrison in pool play . What it also shone a bright spotlight on is how consistent and reliable Matt Abbott is as a player. So many times, he's come in off the wings of a faceoff to make a tough ground ball look easy or pulled out of a so-so transition opportunity to calmly flip the ball to an on-subbing midfielder.

We were saddened to hear of the accidental exposure of YMCA campers to excessive levels of pool chemicals at Camp Letts in Edgewater ( "Anne Arundel campers sickened by chemicals in pool," July 9). With proper pool design, operation and maintenance, this type of accident is preventable. Ideally, the pool water pump and pool chemical feeders should be operationally linked to prevent sudden influxes of excess chemical following a lull in pumping. Accidents like the one at Camp Letts could be avoided in the future if pools are designed and operated according to specifications in the new Model Aquatic Health Code.

Thirty-five people were hospitalized Wednesday after being sickened by chemicals at a swimming pool at YMCA Camp Letts in Edgewater, Anne Arundel County fire officials said. Of the 35 patients, 31 were children age 6 to 16. None of the injuries were life-threatening, officials said. The incident was caused by a malfunctioning pump that regulates chemicals in a camp swimming pool, said Carla Larrick, vice president of operations for the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington. "The pump went out, probably due to the storm that took place [Tuesday]

Standing over a large tub, Gary Moree sorted crabs and stocked his walk-in cooler Friday at Bay Island Seafood, preparing for the onslaught of Memorial Day weekend customers. The cooler was stacked to the ceiling with bushels of Maryland and Delaware crabs and boxes of the oversized Louisiana variety. A barrel of Moree's Bay Island seasoning - a secret blend of rock salt, spices and pepper - stood nearby. "Everyone wants their crabs," said Moree, president of the family owned business that's been a mainstay in Southwest Baltimore since 1952.

MESA, ARIZ. - Michael Phelps couldn't say it enough times, even joking that he would bore questioners with his repetitive explanation for returning to competitive swimming. “I'm having fun,” he answered over and over Wednesday in his first public remarks since his comeback became official last week. Phelps, 28, will swim at the Mesa Grand Prix Thursday, his first race since he won his record-setting 18th gold medal at the 2012 Olympics. He said then he'd never be back, that he'd be relieved to live away from the pool for the first time in his life.

George Herman Ruth Jr., the pride of Pigtown, stayed in the game too long. In his last season and playing for the Boston Braves in 1935, the legendary Babe batted .181, could barely trot around the bases and stuck around mostly because he thought he'd be offered the manager's job, which he wasn't. The greatest baseball player in history retired just two months into his worst season playing for one of the losingest teams in the modern era. The sporting world is filled with cautionary tales of athletes who retired too late or staged unsuccessful comebacks.

Michael Phelps' comeback inched closer to reality Tuesday when his longtime coach said the record-setting Olympian could swim in a meet “sometime soon.” “He looks like he is definitely in shape,” Phelps' coach, Bob Bowman, said. Though Phelps has been non-committal about a return to swimming, he stirred speculation last year when he rejoined the drug-testing pool for international competition. He has also worked out regularly at the North Baltimore Aquatic Club in recent months.

Recently back from a trip to the Caribbean, Jeannie Schwartz and John Macci still had the exotic scent of orchids and plumeria lingering in their imaginations when they stepped out their back door to take in the familiar sight of their own backyard. An immaculate, newly finished stone and concrete patio and in-ground pool greeted them. But the project they had worked so hard on now seemed drab compared to the sights they had just enjoyed. Schwartz and Macci knew something more was needed to make their backyard equal to the lush tropical locales from their travels.
