I am deeply saddened and angered by Mr. Imus' statements regarding the members of the Rutgers women's basketball team. These talented, articulate young women put forth a great deal of hard work and effort this past season to reach the nation's grandest stage - the NCAA title game. Throughout the year, these gifted young ladies set an example for the nation that through hard work and perseverance, you can accomplish anything if you believe. Without a doubt, this past season was my most rewarding in 36 years of coaching.

While the University of Maryland won't be able to reap most of the rewards of joining the Big Ten athletic conference until the move becomes official in July 2014, it will start benefiting from its academic counterpart — the Committee on Institutional Cooperation — this year. Officials from the university and the CIC met this week in College Park to start hammering out the details in preparation for this July, when Maryland and Rutgers University are set to join the 13-member cooperative, which includes the 12 Big Ten schools plus the University of Chicago.

A brown marmorated stink bug caught Michael Raupp's attention as it wandered around the spindly trunk of a zelkova tree. Lately, the entomologist has been noticing the pests everywhere - even on the small species of elm growing in front of a Columbia coffee shop. Raupp, a University of Maryland professor and "Bug of the Week" blogger who lives in Columbia, says stink bugs "are going to be big" in a couple of weeks. The half-inch, shield-shaped critters will be making their presence known in Howard County and elsewhere from mid-September through the end of October, when the first frost of autumn blankets the ground.

History professor Gay Gullickson opened her class on the Industrial Revolution on Thursday with a few words about a different revolution — the digital one — and its role in a tragedy on another college campus. A Rutgers University freshman committed suicide after his roommate and another student posted video on the Internet of him in a sexual encounter with another man, authorities say. "I wanted to tell them two things," said Gullickson, who teaches at the University of Maryland, College Park.

After days of mounting pressure from civil rights advocates, advertisers and the public, CBS Radio fired Don Imus from his nationally syndicated radio show yesterday. Imus' ouster came a day after his dismissal from MSNBC, which had simulcast three hours of Imus' 4 1/2 -hour show. It originated from CBS' flagship WFAN in New York and was beamed to some 70 radio stations via the network's Westwood One arm. The rapidly unfolding developments in the Imus saga were driven by increasing outrage over his April 4 reference to the Rutgers University women's basketball players as "nappy-headed hos," a term embedded with pejorative racial and sexual undertones.

WASHINGTON -- Twelve years after Republicans gained power on Capitol Hill with ambitious plans for action on energy exploration, abortion and other key issues, the GOP is wrapping up its run at the helm this week with a legislative whimper. One of the few bills that might emerge from Congress before it adjourns for the year would expand oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Yet even if the GOP succeeds in pushing the measure into law, it will be a more modest and less disputed plan than party leaders envisioned months ago The House might pass a GOP-backed bill that would require abortion providers to tell patients that fetuses feel pain, but the measure falls far short of initiatives Republicans once hoped to enact to rein in abortions, and it stands almost no chance of taking effect because the Senate has no intention of considering the bill before leaving town.
