Offering an emphatic response to what he perceived as an attack on his organization's integrity, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on Monday rebutted a recent report saying that the organization engaged in a “pattern of misinformation and misdirection” following Ray Rice's arrest in February. In an unusual, nearly 50-minute news conference that brought the national media to the team's Owings Mills training facility, Bisciotti again acknowledged the organization's faults in how it handled the fallout of the former running back's assault on his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator.

Many Maryland legislators were making happy returns to the General Assembly Wednesday, but nobody -- not even Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller -- could approach the record held by Baltimore County Sen. Norman R. Stone. The Dundalk Democrat marked his 50th opening day in the Asembly, where  the 76-year-old Democrat made his debut in the House of Delegates in January 1963. Four years later, he moved up to the Senate, where he has been a fixture since Lyndon Baines Johnson was president.

The Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics, which has on its plate the case of whether to discipline Sen. Ulysses Currie, met in closed session for about a hour Tesday but there was no word on what it will do about the Prince George's County Democrat.  Among the reasons given for the closing was "possible discipline of members of the General Assembly. " Legislative ethics adviser Bill Somerville  stepped out midway through the closed session. Since Somerville isn't taking part in prosecutorial matters, the panel likely moved on from confidential advisory opinions to discipline questions.

With the season for legislating over in Maryland as of last Monday, the season for raising cash for campaigns has begun. For the next nine months, until the General Assembly convenes in Annapolis Jan. 8, candidates for the legislature, governorship and other statewide offices will be making an all-out push to fill their campaign chests before next year's session puts a damper on such activity. Lawmakers and statewide officials are forbidden by law to raise money during the annual 90-day session.

The Aug. 10 workout at which Morgan State football player Marquese Meadow fell ill was a one-hour, non-contact session geared toward conditioning, a university spokesman said Wednesday. Meadow, a freshman on the Bears' football team, died Sunday of heat stroke after spending two weeks in the hospital. Morgan State spokesman Clint Coleman reiterated Wednesday that the school believes all proper procedures were followed by the coaching staff and athletic trainers. He said Meadow was attended to by a trainer after becoming disoriented toward the end of the Aug. 10 session, during which players were not in pads.

There were no real fights between the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers during a joint practice session Saturday at the Ravens' training complex. The closest they came to a skirmish was a brief shoving match between Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee and 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu. And that didn't seem to surprise the father of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. "The amazing thing is these teams that get together, they normally do the two or three days before the game, and then you play the game and get on the plane and go home," said Jack Harbaugh, a retired former football coach at Western Kentucky, Western Michigan and Michigan.

The 113th Congress has just slinked out of town for a five-week summer recess, leaving behind its lowest public approval rating in 25 years, according to the latest Washington Post/ABC News Poll. A majority of voters surveyed -- 51 percent -- expressed disgust with their own legislators for their inability to do their job. Only 41 percent said they were pleased with their representative, contradicting the old cliché that voters dislike Congress as a whole but revere their own congressman or congresswoman.

Netdao Yutakon of Nashville, Tenn., was still shaking her head, getting used to the lightness two days after her waist-length hair was chopped off to meet Naval Academy regulations in time for her freshman year. "It was like losing a best friend," said Yutakon, an 18-year-old graduate of Hume-Fogg Academic High School in Tennessee, as she fiddled with the locks that now come just below her ears. At least Yutakon was spared the razor. One by one, members of the freshmen class who didn't have their hair cut before Tuesday saw their locks vanish with the quick work of a barber - a ritual that was among their first tastes of academy life in Annapolis.

The mission concludes April 30, after the 90-day session has drawn to a close.

Others spending big bucks last session included the Maryland Retailers Association ($619,000) -- the group beat back attempts to hike amusement taxes. The amounts were reported by the Maryland State Ethics Commission, which compiles reports on lobbying in the state.

HOUSTON -- Catcher Matt Wieters' second light throwing session was successful, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. It was much like his first session on Friday, when he made 25 throws from about 75 feet while playing catch with bench coach John Russell. The Orioles are optimistic that Wieters, who is on the disabled list with right elbow discomfort, can return this season and avoid surgery, but Showalter said, even in the best-case scenario, he wouldn't expect Wieters to return within the next two weeks.
