The Carroll County Health Department sponsored its fourth annual Project ACES program in October for children in the county's elementary schools. ACES (Active Children Excel in School) is a physical activity challenge aimed at improving health and fitness by increasing daily physical activity. Pupils kept track of their physical activity for a two-week period. The goal was to exercise for 30 minutes or more each day. Activities that met the requirements included walking, playing, riding bicycles, dancing, participating in sports, or doing yardwork or housework.

Two days before pitchers and catchers report to spring training, the Orioles crossed one final thing off their offseason to-do list Friday, agreeing to a one-year, $5.75 million deal with Jeremy Guthrie. Guthrie, the club's likely Opening Day starter, was the sixth and final Oriole eligible for arbitration. His signing extends the Orioles' streak of not going to a potentially contentious arbitration hearing for a fifth straight year. Since being named general manager of the Minnesota Twins in November 1996, Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail has not gone to a hearing with a player.

Kevin Millwood was hoping to go at least three innings, possibly four in his Grapefruit League debut with the Orioles Saturday. He couldn't even get three outs. The Detroit Tigers hammered the Orioles' projected ace for six earned runs, seven hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning in their 9-5 victory at Joker Marchant Stadium. Millwood also mixed in a balk in a forgettable afternoon that saw the right-hander allow a leadoff homer to Clete Thomas and permit eight of the 10 hitters he faced to reach base.
