Two years ago, Republican Del. Neil Parrott and MdPetitions.com had become so adept at petitioning Maryland laws to referendum that some Democrats, Gov. Martin O'Malley included, urged the General Assembly to make it tougher to do. How foolish that looks now. Over the weekend, the conservative group came up short in its efforts to petition to referendum the transgender rights law passed this year by the legislature. MdPetitions.com had only to produce 18,500 signatures by midnight on Saturday - a goal the organization had little trouble meeting previously when it petitioned same-sex marriage or Maryland's version of the Dream Act in recent years.

Coming across a reference to Steve Buttry's excellent advice for tightening stories in a 2011 post at The Buttry Diary , I was particularly struck by his remark about the failure of stories when they are written for sources rather than readers I want to talk today about some of the things implicit in that invaluable maxim, write for the reader, not the source . A reporter can write about establishing the essential balance of...

TAMPA, Fla. -- Left-hander T.J. McFarland has been scratched from his scheduled start at Triple-A Norfolk on Monday night, and he likely will join the Orioles for their series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Tuesday, according to an industry source. Following Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field, Orioles manager Buck Showalter expressed concern about the overuse of his bullpen, especially since Tuesday begins a span in which the Orioles play 13 straight days and 26 of their next 27 days.

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.

A source close to Williams, 69, confirmed multiple media reports that the former Terps coach will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The brain injury Navy slotback Will McKamey suffered Saturday in Annapolis came during a noncontact practice drill, his parents wrote in an email distributed by an athletic department spokesman at the academy Monday. McKamey, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound freshman from Knoxville, Tenn., was airlifted from the practice field to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he underwent surgery and, as of Monday, remained in critical condition in a coma. The first padded drills of spring practice typically do not include any contact, and McKamey "did not sustain a bad hit or unusual or extreme contact in practice," his parents wrote.

Holding a whiteboard, the University of Maryland, College Park students scrawled their complaints and posed for a picture. "My name is Justin and I spent $114 on ONE textbook," a student wrote. "My name is Jeff and I spent $736 on textbooks," wrote another. The images, posted online by the Student Government Association in recent months, are designed to highlight the rapid rise in the price of college textbooks over the past decade. This semester, the University System of Maryland is exploring ways to bring that cost to zero with "open-source" electronic textbooks — the latest experiment in changing the way students in Maryland and across the nation are taught.
