The ball hit by Cal Ripken Jr. for his last home run brought $17,270 at auction this week - less than the $30,000 predicted by sports memorabilia experts. Fourteen bids were placed on the ball, which Ripken drove into the stands for No. 431 on Sept. 23, 2001. Bob Oler, of Timonium, the fan who caught it, said he would put the profits toward building his new house in Sparks. "I'd like to meet [the buyer] and tell the story of how I caught it," he says, "unless that someone wants to remain anonymous."

If the three Maryland public school educators want to hold onto a sense of normalcy after Tuesday's announcement that they are splitting a share of the record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot, experts say they should stay tight-lipped. For now, "The Three Amigos," as they call themselves, have allowed lottery officials to reveal only the barest details about their identities: a woman in her 20s, a man in his 40s, and a woman in her 50s. The Marylanders work in three different schools, as a special education teacher, an elementary school teacher and a school administrative worker.

In the narrowest sense, the issue in a case heard by Maryland's Court of Special Appeals last week involves whether the publisher and editor of a financial newsletter in Rockville has to comply with the demands of an Arizona-based company to reveal his sources and his subscribers. On that issue, the appeals court may very well agree with a lower court that the publisher must respond. But the case raises broader First Amendment and other issues, including the right of people who post negative comments on the Internet to remain anonymous and efforts by companies that are the subjects of such comments to unmask their critics.

A loophole in state campaign finance laws allowed contributors to Maryland candidates and political groups to pump $4.3 million into the 2010 election cycle while remaining anonymous — denying citizens a thorough look at the money that flows into politics. The State Board of Elections discourages candidates from using the "lump sum" label on campaign finance reports, and Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has taken issue with the practice. But it remains legal and has been used by Democrats and Republicans alike, enabling some local candidates to finance their races without disclosing large numbers of donors.
