Dylan Bundy's fast track to the majors during his first full pro season in 2012 might have some thinking that the Orioles top prospect will return to the big leagues sooner rather than later. But as Bundy prepared to pitch for the Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds on Saturday -- his second start since undergoing Tommy John elbow surgery -- the Orioles made clear that they will bring the 20-year-old right-hander along carefully. “This season is a rehab process,” Orioles player development director Brian Graham said.

As a lifelong Democrat, I am particularly proud of our progressive history in Howard County. We have led the way on every front from education and public safety to health care reform and LGBT rights. Our forward-looking vision is a direct result of a local government led by progressive Democrats. This year, I am an active supporter of Jon Weinstein for the county council's District 1 seat representing Ellicott City. However, I urge fellow Democrats to carefully consider the qualifications of some other candidates in that race.

Sixth in a series of profiles of candidates for governor. Not long into her campaign for governor, Democrat Heather R. Mizeur coined a response to the question still dogging her today: Can she win? To the pundits and the radio hosts, to donors and supporters across the state, to everyone who says she's an intriguing choice but seems a long shot, Mizeur gives the same optimistic answer: "This campaign is about breaking the illusion of impossibility. " The improbable, if not impossible, would be an astronomical ascent in Maryland politics from the House of Delegates to the governor's mansion as the state's first female governor and the first openly gay person to be elected governor in the country.

I've been thinking a lot about college lately. It's not as though it's staring me in the face, either. The oldest is finishing his freshman year in high school. The youngest is still in elementary school. Still, what's occurring on America's college campuses is on my front burner. First and foremost is the ever-escalating cost of a four-year degree - the cause of many a sleepless night for moms and dads. Tuition, fees, room and board for many private colleges has now hit $60,000 a year.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Saturday at Double-A Bowie. He will start at first base and bat second. The plan is for Davis to get at least four at bats and play at least seven innings. “I don't want him hitting leadoff and I don't want him to have the problem of getting enough at bats before he may or may not come out of the game,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “The plan is for him to potentially DH on Sunday, the 2 o'clock game, but he's going to come back here after the game tomorrow, and he and I are going to sit down and talk.

Apparently following its head rather than its heart, the activist group Progressive Maryland threw its support behind Lt. Anthony G. Brown in the Democratic race for governor -- passing on the chance to embrace the liberal candidacy of Del. Heather R. Mizeur of Montgomery County. Elbridge James, chairman of the group, said Progressive Maryland decided to endorse Brown after "a lot of discussion and re-discussion. " "We love Heather," said James, but at the end of the day the group's 24-member vote decided that Brown was the most viable candidate.

Two months after nearly one-third of the city's principals were penalized over poor student attendance, the school system has made marked progress, education officials said at a hearing Thursday called by City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke. In March, interim CEO Tisha Edwards placed 61 principals on "performance improvement plans" or PIPs — usually a precursor of dismissal that can affect end-of-year evaluations and pay raises. They were told to reduce the number of students considered "at risk" of missing more than 20 days of school.

I read with interest Susan Reimer 's April 21st column: "A gender gap in confidence," expressing concern about women's lack of confidence. In the 1960s and early 1970s, very few women went to medical school. Our 1969 graduating class at the University of Maryland School of Medicine included six women out of 125 graduates. Nevertheless the following incident occurred to the first woman surgical resident at a major hospital. The first day, when she showed up in the Operating Room anteroom to undress and gown, she was confronted with two doors: "Doctors" and "Nurses.
