Derrick Mason can carry a football much better than he can carry a tune. But on Tuesday, the Ravens veteran wide receiver did his best to serenade seniors at the Oak Crest Village retirement community in Parkville. Flanked by Ravens backup quarterback John Beck, tight end Edgar Jones and practice squad wide receiver Justin Harper, Mason delighted a crowd of about 75 guests with a lively karaoke show, the second time that he has chosen the community center for an unconventional way to connect with Ravens fans.

Ten years ago, a study showed that the Elkridge library needed to be more than twice its current size in order to meet the needs of the community.Then five years ago, a feasaibility study determined that renovation of the existing building would not be an option. Aside from it being too small, the branch doesn't have the classroom or meeting room space necessary or even a heating and air conditioning system that works properly. In that time, a new, state-of-the-art library was built in Ellicott City and renovations are under way to double the size of the Savage library.

Ian Chiles is thriving in the paint, shooting the ball well and inspiring fear in opponents who take shots by rejecting many of them. “You win games a lot of time with your guard play,” Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said, “but if you have a strong post presence, it is important, because those are where the higher-percentage shots come from. And also, as a defender, you have someone in there protecting against those higher-percentage shots.”   The 7-foot-2 senior center has blocked 14 shots in the past two games, including a career-high nine against Norfolk Sate on Saturday.    Chiles is second in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference with 3.1 rejections per game, and has amassed 68 blocks on the season, and 171 in his career.    Chiles also scored 23 points in Morgan State's (9-13, 7-3)

As a band played, hundreds of seniors and visitors ate slices of cake, celebrating the opening of a new senior center by filling a dining room that, in its old location, would barely have been able to seat half of them. On Friday morning, Carroll County opened the North Carroll Senior & Community Center, a 25,000-square-foot facility in Greenmount that is more than four times the size of its former location. The additional space will allow an increased number of activities for seniors, as the new building has separate areas designated for various activities, such as crafts, games, exercising and billiards.
