A longtime coach at the Baltimore swim club that has turned out several Olympians — including Michael Phelps — resigned after an allegation of "inappropriate conduct" with a female athlete was revealed, officials of the sport's national governing body said Friday. The North Baltimore Aquatic Club reported the coach, who was not identified, to swimming authorities in October 2011, according to USA Swimming, the Colorado-based governing body. The coach was forced out of the position within 48 hours after club officials became aware of the allegation last fall, and the club contacted Baltimore County authorities, a source with knowledge of the situation said.

Acting on new allegations, a Howard County grand jury indicted a science teacher on sexual misconduct charges involving a third student at River Hill High School, the state's attorney's office said yesterday. Alan Meade Beier, a 52-year-old chemistry and physics teacher at the Clarksville school, was charged by the grand jury with sexual abuse of a minor and second-degree assault involving a boy younger than 18. The charges come a month after Beier was arrested and charged with sexual misconduct in separate incidents involving two other students.

This whole scandal over Herman Cain's alleged sexual harassment of women during the 1990s is driving me crazy because the media is insisting on covering this story instead of properly vetting the candidates. Mr. Cain recently was on C-span to debate Gingrich, and it was clear he doesn't know much about government. The guy had to let Newt go first on every question because it was clear he had no clue what they were talking about. Yet the media puts a spotlight on Mr. Cain's alleged sexual misconduct instead.

The report by Politico over the weekend revealing that GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was accused by two women of sexual harassment while he was CEO of the National Restaurant Association in the mid-1990s has led to swift condemnation -- not of anything Mr. Cain may have done but of the media's appetite for such stories. Some conservative defenders of Mr. Cain, who is at or near the top in most polls of Republican voters, have compared the story to what Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas referred to as the “high-tech lynching” he received at his confirmation hearings when he was confronted with allegations of sexual harassment.

For years, basketball and football have been characterized as sports played by "thugs" or "gangsters." The prevalence of tattoos, legal troubles and a general "in your face" attitude of the players have become symbols of what is wrong with sports today. Surprisingly, it looks like basketball and football have a new partner in this dubious category: men's lacrosse. Lacrosse's image has suffered greatly in recent years after a string of alcohol- and sex-related incidents both at the high school and college level, culminating Monday with the tragic death of Yeardley Love of Cockeysville, a senior on the University of Virginia women's lacrosse team.

News item: The Orioles just went winless on their first homestand of a 2010 season that supposedly will be judged by upper management on wins and losses. My take: Well, at this rate, it probably won't be a particularly difficult evaluation process, but there are 151 games left. Might want to give it another week or so. News item: The Orioles' $12 million closer, Mike Gonzalez, just went on the disabled list with a sore left shoulder after insisting all spring that he was fine.

A once-prominent psychiatrist and pain specialist who enjoyed a national reputation and a thriving practice in northwest Baltimore County was in court again Tuesday, facing another in a string of female patients who over the years have accused him of sexual abusing them. Nelson H. Hendler, 65, whose license to practice medicine was revoked by the Maryland Board of Physicians in February 2006 after it concluded that he committed sexual misconduct with patients and dispensed drugs without a permit, settled earlier civil suits from some of the women.
