Dave DuGoff gives reasoned plea for dollar coins ("Sensible change: Switch to $1 coins," April 26). I am all for it, but for some reason, the U.S. has made dollar coins almost like quarters, and as a result, no one will use them. Has anyone ever thought of looking at how other countries do this? For example, a similar coin in the United Kingdom is much smaller and thicker than other coins and can easily be differentiated by feel or vision. What's the matter with us? Judy Rhoades, Catonsville

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

Republican Rep.Roscoe G. Bartlett, who is fighting to retain control of Maryland's 6th Congressional District, posted his best fundraising quarter in years on Friday, but was nevertheless outraised by his Democratic challenger, John Delaney. Bartlett, a 10-term incumbent, has been improving his fundraising effort and collected just over $372,000 in the past three months, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission Friday. But Delaney, a Potomac banker who beat the party's pick in the April primary, is expected to raise slightly more than $450,000 in the same period, his campaign said.  Bartlett is in the race of his political career this year after lawmakers in Annapolis redrew the 6th District to be more friendly to Democrats.

With Towson featuring nine new starters on offense and five on defense, many expected this year's team to be a much different group from last season's squad that advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game. That difference is especially stark when considering how the 2014 Tigers have struggled to finish off opponents. While last year's team won 11 of 12 games in which it had the lead or the score was tied after three quarters, the current squad has lost two of three games in which it had the advantage or the score was tied heading into the final period.

1st Mariner Bancorp said Friday that it lost $3.1 million for the first quarter, or 48 cents per share, as the Baltimore company continued to see deterioration in its real estate loan portfolio. For the corresponding quarter last year, 1st Mariner lost $3.278 million, or 52 cents per share. Nonperforming assets in the first quarter rose to $65.1 million, or 4.72 percent of total assets, up nearly $25 million from a year earlier. That increase is largely due to bad loans in residential construction and development.

Provident Bancorp's profit jumped 35.6 percent in the third quarter, as revenue from loans and fees for services grew at double-digit rates.

Diluted earnings per share rose a penny to 54 cents, but were a penny shy of Wall Street estimates, according to Nelson Information/Thomson Financial. Shares of Provident closed at $32.84, down 31 cents, but they are up 21 percent since June 14, when they traded at $27.13.

General Motors Corp.'s recovery moved another step forward yesterday as it posted a loss of $115 million, or 20 cents a share, in the third quarter, a huge improvement from the loss of $1.7 billion, or $2.94 a share, a year earlier. Excluding charges related to its recovery plan, GM earned $529 million, or 93 cents a share, almost double the 49 cents a share forecast. It marked the second straight quarter in which charges translated gains into losses for the No. 1 automaker. "Our turnaround efforts are well under way, reflect significant progress and are having a large impact on the bottom line as evidenced by a $1.6 billion improvement for the quarter," said GM Chairman G. Richard Wagoner Jr. Fritz Henderson, GM's vice chairman and chief financial officer, wouldn't venture a guess on when GM expects to post a profit clear of charges.

Net income was $50.1 million, or 35 cents per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $36.1 million, or 26 cents per diluted share, in the corresponding period last year. "While our mission is not fully accomplished, we are pleased to return Legg Mason to profitability," Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Mark R. Fetting told analysts during a conference call.

Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley considered the beginning of the third quarter the pivotal time for his Greyhounds Friday afternoon, even though they had a lead on St. Frances at the break. The No. 3 Greyhounds started the game with 21 straight points, only to watch No. 12 St. Frances cut the lead to five on a couple of big plays in the final minutes of the first half. Locksley, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound quarterback committed to Florida State, guided Gilman on a long scoring drive to open the third quarter and that sparked a 42-16 victory over the visiting Panthers in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opener for both teams.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised the late-game adjustments on defense in Sunday's 23-21 win over Cleveland that kept the Browns off the scoreboard in the final quarter and gave the offense the chance to complete its comeback. "That's what won the game, the resolve of our guys to finish the game - probably spearheaded by our defense in terms of the three-and-outs," Harbaugh said. "I think we had three out of four three-and-outs at the end, and two in a row in the fourth quarter.

Throughout the Baltimore City school year, student success will be measured in the traditional ways, through test scores and grades, and, for high school seniors, by whether or not they graduate. While tracking such standards is vital to understanding student achievement and progress as well as the success of our school system as a whole, another key indicator deserves far more focused attention: attendance. For students to succeed in school, they have to be in school. And not enough of Baltimore City students are attending school as much as they should.

LAKEWOOD, Ohio - The pressure was on the Gilman football team before it even stepped onto the field for the season opener Sunday afternoon. Facing St. Edward (Ohio), one of the top-ranked teams in the country, in front of a nationally televised audience, the Greyhounds knew they'd be in for a test. And the Eagles lived up to the billing - starting strong, finishing stronger and breezing to a 38-7 victory. "I don't think we prepared for anything. We got walloped … absolutely hammered," Gilman coach Biff Poggi said.

The Ravens will maintain their tradition of having starters playing into the third quarter during their third preseason game Saturday night. Some starters might just play until halftime against the Washington Redskins at M&T Bank Stadium. This will be the last preseason game for the starters, who will be rested during the fourth and final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints next week. “We're there stamina-wise, there's no question about that,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

The Ravens could ill afford another injury at cornerback, but that's exactly what they got barely three minutes into their game tonight against the Dallas Cowboys . Jimmy Smith , their top healthy cornerback, came down hard on his back defending a long sideline incompletion to Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant . Smith got up after the play and slapped himself on the helmet but then he went immediately down to his knees. Flanked by the team's medical staff, he ultimately walked gingerly back to the sideline, where he was spitting out blood before he was ultimately taken to the locker room.

Integrated Health Services Inc., the nursing home operator with headquarters in Sparks, reported substantial losses yesterday for the quarter that ended March 31 -- hardly a surprise, because it filed for bankruptcy reorganization during the quarter. Any sign of turnaround would be at least one or two quarters away, as the company prepares its reorganization plan and awaits the results of increased Medicare payments. Medicare cuts, which had their greatest impact last year, pushed several other nursing home chains into bankruptcy as well.

Provident Bankshares Corp., the Baltimore-based parent of Provident Bank, reported yesterday 30 percent increases in net income and earnings per share for the second quarter that ended June 30. The performance would have been even better had it not been for a $10 million write-down related to WorldCom Inc. bonds in the bank's investment portfolio, the bank said. Provident also said yesterday that its board of directors declared an increased quarterly cash dividend of 21.5 cents per share, payable Aug. 9 to shareholders of record at the close of business July 29. This is the 35th consecutive quarter the bank has increased the dividend, which was 21 cents per share in the first quarter of this year.

At first, Baldwin Homes didn't build green. Then it dipped its corporate toe in - one home here, another there. Now the Gambrills company is constructing an entire green neighborhood. It's the story of U.S. home building writ small. Green accounted for 2 percent of the new-home market in 2005, according to a report by industry data provider McGraw Hill Construction. By last year it had ballooned to 23 percent - nearly a quarter. "I don't think green is a niche market anymore," said Michele A. Russo, director of green content at McGraw Hill Construction.

Coach John Harbaugh said Thursday that he expects to play his starters for about a quarter on Saturday in Dallas, when the Ravens play the Cowboys in the second of four preseason games. “We'll have some play counts for a few guys, including [quarterback] Joe [Flacco] and some of the defensive players, but we'll see how it goes,” Harbaugh said “Basically, [the starters will play] about a quarter.” There will be some exceptions, he said, just as there were last week against San Francisco.
