WASHINGTON -- All but burying fears of worrisome inflation, consumer prices inched up one-tenth of 1 percent in May as lower prices for gasoline and clothing offset increases for vegetables, used cars and the fees charged by physicians and lawyers, Labor Department figures showed yesterday.The report, combined with a similar one on Friday showing no inflation at the producer level, was widely seen as proving that prices remained in check and that jumps earlier this year were temporary and in some cases more statistical than real.

Robin Williams was one of the most original, daring and troubled comedians to ever work in television. When he first burst on the screen, you held your breath as you watched him dance out there on a manic tightrope of improvisation. But after a while, you stopped wondering how he did it and learned to just enjoy the high of seeing him soar. The 63-year-old comedian and actor was found dead Monday at his home in Tiburon, Calif., north of San Francisco. The cause of death is suspected to be suicide by asphyxiation, according to the Marin County coroner's office.

She's sitting at a table with five other Wicomico Middle School sixth-graders, and they're discussing Wilma Unlimited, Kathleen Krull's biography of Olympic runner Wilma Rudolph. It's the first of a few days Candis and her classmates will spend reading and discussing the book, and reading specialist Jane A. Long is asking the pupils to look at the cover drawing of Rudolph in full stride, then predict what will happen. "I think it'll be about a racer," says Candis.

A group of Centennial High School ninth-graders spent a prime party night - Saturday - at school. A few said they came because there was nothing else to do, others wanted to meet new friends and one wanted to avoid baby-sitting her siblings. They all appeared to have a good time playing basketball, volleyball, talking and dancing at the kickoff for Eagles SOAR (Students Often Achieving Results), an initiative for freshmen that includes the school's nickname. "A Saturday night at school means they're not somewhere else," said Mara Goron, assistant principal at the Ellicott City school.

The pace is quick in teacher Dana Kirby's classroom, a trailer behind Marley Elementary School in Glen Burnie. But the five third-graders seated around her are prepared: first for reviewing the books they're reading on their own, then back to the book on whales they've been going over in class, answering questions from Kirby and one another and summarizing what they've gleaned about how whales and their babies breathe. All in about 50 minutes. "We're going so fast," marveled one of the pupils in the "Soar to Success" program.

The jet packs - which propel pressurized streams of water to lift riders up to 30 feet above the water's surface - left Ocean City police officers "unsure of how to handle them and what to do" after they were introduced last summer, said Julie Brown, a boating education coordinator with the Maryland Natural Resources Police.

The Baltimore-based apparel maker attributed its strong performance in the quarter ended March 31 to demand for its "performance-based" athletic gear, the brand's appeal among youth and the growing success of its forays into outfitting hunting and fishing enthusiasts. "We are off to a great start in 2014 driven by broad-based strength across our apparel, footwear, and international growth drivers," founder and CEO Kevin Plank said in a statement.

The scary snow forecast was not enough to deter a decent-sized crowd from trekking to Strathmore Wednesday night for a concert by the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra led by its longtime music director Yuri Temirkanov. I, for one, would have risked even more threatening weather for the opportunity to experience this level of artistry. Many of us will never forget the magic Temirkanov so frequently ignited during his all-too-brief tenure at the helm of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, so any chance to reconnect with the conductor's soulful style is a big deal (several BSO players and the orchestra's president were in the Strathmore audience Wednesday)
