Erica L. Green's article, "City gets 'C' on school reform" (Aug. 25) cites a study by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, identifying that organization as a "nonprofit organization that conducts research in elementary and secondary education reform…". That's like saying a report by the Republican Party, a non-profit organization, has been critical of Governor Martin O'Malley. The article should have said that the Fordham Institute is a right-wing organization tied to charter schools and anti-union activities.

Maryland has yet to make a decision on whether quarterback C.J. Brown will play against No. 20 Ohio State on Saturday. However, Brown has been practicing this week and has looked good in practice, according to sources. Brown suffered a sprained left wrist during the Terps' win over Indiana last week. If Brown does not play, Maryland will turn to backup quarterback Caleb Rowe, who was 12 of 18 for 198 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions after replacing Brown against the Hoosiers.

The Orioles have competition in the quest to sign Grant Balfour. They are one of three teams who have made the 35-year-old free-agent closer a two-year offer, according to an industry source. Among the three offers Balfour is considering, one includes a vesting option for a third year. That option is not from the Orioles, according to a source. The Orioles appear focused on finding a resolution one way or another with Balfour before making offers to other closing options, but the years of the deal seem to be the sticking point, according to a source.

Maryland likely will be without promising redshirt freshman wide receiver Taivon Jacobs for an extended period of time. Jacobs suffered a meniscus injury while battling for a pass during the first quarter of the Terps' 52-7 win over James Madison on Saturday at Byrd Stadium. Jacobs will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the full severity of the damage. However, he likely will miss a minimum of four weeks, according to a source. The injury is another hit to Maryland's receiving corps.

Searching for a power bat to upgrade the major leagues' worst offense, the Washington Nationals yesterday acquired heavy-hitting Alfonso Soriano from the Texas Rangers for outfielders Brad Wilkerson, Terrmel Sledge and a minor leaguer, according to an industry source. The deal is pending Wilkerson's physical, the source said. Soriano, Sledge and minor league pitcher Armando Galarraga passed their physicals, the source said. Nationals general manager Jim Bowden would neither confirm nor deny the report.

The MRI on Orioles third baseman Manny Machado's left knee is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Baltimore, according to a source. The Orioles won't know anything about the severity of the injury or his future until after they learn the results of the MRI, the source said. He's expected, at the least, to miss the final six games of the season. Machado injured his knee in the Orioles' 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday afternoon. With one out in the top of the seventh inning, the 21-year-old, All-Star third baseman crumpled to the ground after awkwardly hitting first base while beating out an infield single.

The quarterfinal matchups of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday will be sold out, a source said Friday. A late surge among fans of the United States and El Salvador teams pushed sales from 15,000 last Sunday to an expected crowd of more than 71,000 for the game this weekend. The interest in the game was partially attributed to the U.S. national men's soccer team's first appearance in Baltimore since 1997, but also due to the passion of the El Salvador team's fanbase, the source said.

The Orioles may attempt to ramp up their pursuit of Fernando Rodney, the best free-agent closer still available, but they hadn't done it as of Thursday afternoon. According to an industry source, the Orioles and Rodney's representatives have not had any dialogue in weeks while the club narrowed its focus to starting pitching. That's contrary to several Internet reports Thursday that said the talks between the Orioles and Rodney had heated up. That's not the case, the source says, but perhaps it could be in the near future.

The blocking scheme the Ravens will use today will be the same as last season, according to a team source, who also said that both running backs, Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, still have not fully recovered from injuries suffered in the preseason. According to the source, several players met with Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday following the Ravens' 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Ravens have the 27th-ranked rushing game in the NFL averaging only 72.7 yards per game.

As the Orioles head into the All-Star break, they do so with a managerial situation that remains in flux and rumors that continue to swirl about their leading candidate soon taking over. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail and ESPN analyst Buck Showalter met again this weekend, at least the third time they have discussed the managerial opening, an industry source confirmed. But there has not been a formal offer, and there likely won't be one until the end of the week at the earliest.

During this first-place run, Orioles manager Buck Showalter is continually asked about the resiliency of his club, primarily the way it has been able to bounce back after absorbing injuries to key players. And he usually delivers the same answer: The Orioles don't wallow in self-pity. Instead, someone else steps up. On Saturday night, in a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins, the Orioles didn't pitch well and squandered several scoring opportunities, but they ultimately squeaked out another win, thanks to the legs of a veteran and the bat of a newcomer.

CHICAGO - The Orioles hoped to have third baseman Manny Machado back from a right knee injury sometime next month, but any postseason run for the Orioles will be without their 22-year-old 2013 All-Star and Platinum Glove winner. Machado will have surgery on his right knee next week that will end his season, according to an industry source. This would be the second consecutive year that Machado's season has ended with surgery to one of his knees. Last September, he suffered a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in his left knee that required surgery and caused him to miss the first month of this season.

Federal regulators approved new pollution limits Monday for Maryland's coastal bays aimed at restoring water quality in the shallow lagoons that serve both as playground for Ocean City vacationers and vital habitat for fish and wildlife. Like the Chesapeake Bay, the state's coastal bays suffer from an overdose of nitrogen and phosphorus, which feed algae blooms and stress fish by depleting levels of dissolved oxygen in the water. The bays have been officially recognized as impaired by nutrient pollution since the mid-1990s.

WASHINGTON - When the Orioles were discussing trades last month with various teams, they fielded requests targeting their top four pitching prospects: right-handers Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey and left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, who they ultimately dealt Thursday to the Boston Red Sox for reliever Andrew Miller. But there was another wave of inquiries this summer, too. According to multiple sources, teams asked about the availability of several Orioles position prospects, including Triple-A Norfolk outfielder Dariel Alvarez and first baseman Christian Walker, Double-A Bowie outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and Low-A Delmarva catcher Chance Sisco.

Tests conducted on Ravens starting cornerback Lardarius Webb's lower back revealed no structural damage, according to sources. Webb's back injury, which was suffered last Friday and has sidelined him since the second day of training camp, is apparently muscular. The team is expected to be cautious with Webb to avoid this becoming a chronic, long-term injury. Webb's availability for practices will be evaluated on a day-to-day, week-to-week basis. At this point, the injury isn't expected to affect Webb in the regular season and is expected to get better with rest and rehabilitation.

With the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline three weeks away, the Orioles are pursuing trade options, including an upgrade of their starting rotation. According to industry sources, the Orioles have been closely monitoring and gathering background information on Colorado Rockies veteran left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. De La Rosa, 33, is not a stranger to Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who was in charge of the Boston Red Sox in 2001 when the club signed De La Rosa out of the Mexican League.

The list of the best college basketball coaches not to have made the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame apparently will shorten by at least one name when the 2014 class is unveiled Monday. Longtime Maryland coach Gary Williams, who led the Terps to their only two Final Four appearances and lone national championship, in 2002, will be honored during a luncheon before Monday's NCAA men's title game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. A source close to Williams, 69, confirmed multiple media reports that the former Terps coach will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

BOB WOODWARD'S book about W. Mark Felt, perhaps the most famous source in the history of journalism, is a text for our democracy. Like his Watergate book, All The President's Men, it's a good yarn even if you know the plot. The characters are compelling, even heroic. And the real world stakes were as high as they get - then and now. The secret man stuff ought to be just the come-on. The book should be read as a procedural on the interplay between sources and the press - a partnership the press has neglected, at its peril, to discuss until recently.

BOSTON - Three days after designating him for assignment, the Orioles placed outfielder Nolan Reimold on waivers Friday, according to an industry source. It's likely no coincidence that the club placed Reimold, who was on the 60-day disabled list and is returning from his second neck surgery, on waivers over the holiday weekend. Clubs have 48 hours to place a claim on him before he clears at 1 p.m. Sunday. If another club claims Reimold, it must pick up what remains of his $1.025 million salary for this season, which is roughly $500,000.

In a narrow hallway on a high shelf, a sign sits next to an intricate wreath of looped vines, feathers and dried flowers. “Flowers feed the soul,” it says.  That hallway divides the front and back rooms of Natural Gatherings, Rick and Jane Barger's shop on Main Street in Bel Air. For the Bargers, that message rings true.
