For some thoroughbreds at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday, it had been mere months since their last race. Now, as the ex-racehorses trotted onto the track, they were asked by riders not to run like the wind, but do something entirely different - circle barrels, leap hurdles or prance precisely in dressage, an Olympic equestrian sport. The horses at the second annual Thoroughbred Makeover: A Marketplace & National Symposium resisted the urge to take off when they heard the boom of an announcer's voice.

An Inner Harbor ice rink is set to open by Nov. 21, and an ongoing fundraising effort will determine how large it will be, according to the Waterfront Partnership.

The Maryland Senate moved a little closer to a majority willing to vote for full repeal of the death penalty Friday as 21 senators -- four more than last year -- agreed to co-sponsor the legislation in that chamber. This year the bill also has the full-fledged support of Gov. Martin O'Malley, improving its chances of prevailing and moving over to the House of Delegates. Twenty-four votes are needed to pass a bill in the Senate. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller has said he believes there is a majority in favor of repeal in his chamber and that he can round up the 29 votes to stop a filibuster.

Wow! What a success our 8th annual Summertime Fun event was May 21! We only made a few minor changes, and it worked out just right. Parents enjoyed playing games with their children and obtaining information to improve their quality of life. Youngsters received lots of prizes and eight went home with new bikes. Everyone walked away with smiles! This would not have been possible without the generous donations made by our elected officials, state Sen. Ed Kasemeyer, Dels.

Bob Sicard is in charge of lining up partnerships for Artscape. He's the guy who has to find sponsors willing to put up enough cash to ensure that the country's largest free outdoor arts festival remains the country's largest free outdoor arts festival. In a time of recession, in a city staring down a $121 million budget deficit, you'd think Sicard would be in a tough position. Trying to raise money at a time like this can't be easy, right? But Sicard says that he's coming off his best year ever.

I wanted to thank the North County News and Pat Van den Beemt for the wonderful article she wrote about Caring for Kids of Kenya. I would also like to thank Dotty and Jeffrey Pitts who have sponsored Justin through his high school years and now in college. Dotty was actually the one who spotted Justin on my first visit to an orphanage. She was so taken with the children she has returned to Kenya twice to visit the orphanage. Caring for Kids has been very lucky to have such generous sponsors helping to keep many orphans in school and giving these children who have lost everything a reason to live.

One sponsor asked to have its ad broadcast in a different game, according to a published report that the network did not dispute. Another requested that its ad air at a different point than originally scheduled in the Sept.

As their corporate partners express concern about the Ray Rice case, the Ravens have been reaching out — courting them anew — to try to ensure that dozens of long-held relationships and the millions in revenue they provide remain intact. In the strongest-worded statement from a Ravens sponsor yet, Southwest Airlines on Monday called the allegations of misconduct by NFL players "disturbing," adding that it was ready to "take prompt action," depending on the course of events. The club, which sent an open message to sponsors and fans Monday, wants to be certain its fabric of about 100 sponsors — both local and national firms — does not begin to unravel over questions surrounding its handling of the Rice situation.

Tonight, Baltimore becomes a casino town. With the opening of the $442 million Horseshoe Casino Baltimore on Russell Street, the city enters an era of legalized slots, table games and poker that seemed impossible just a dozen years ago. Back then, people were busy drawing lines - first no slots at racetracks; then maybe, but no table games; then state-regulated slots at five locations and then six, along with everything else. Voters got their say, both on the matter of expanded gambling and then the location of the state's largest casino, Maryland Live, at Arundel Mills.

When Howard Community College nursing student Danielle LaClair discovered that her tuition payment plan had been canceled, she didn't know what to think. As it turned out, the 28-year-old Ellicott City resident had no cause for worry. LaClair was among more than 1,300 students at the community college to receive a county government-funded scholarship designed to make college affordable for county residents in need. Howard Community College officials said the $2.5 million funding for the Pathway Scholarship Program is the largest one-time gift in school history, eclipsing the previous mark of $1.5 million from the Rouse Company Foundation in 2007.

In Howard County, it's perfectly legal to consume the biggest, most gargantuan family-size bag of barbecue-flavored potato chips at one sitting and wash it down with a case of the most sugary soda ever made. Or, if that's not your taste, perhaps something more along the lines of the Homer Simpson diet with a thousand glazed doughnuts and a 64-ounce carton of chocolate syrup. County employees can partake of this artery-clogging, stomach-distending meal as often as they'd like. So can public school students.

Joshua Cain felt miserable as his Engine 58 crew gathered in the kitchen of their Annapolis Road firehouse after a brutal blaze that ripped through several rowhouses and took hours to control. Only two months into the job as a Baltimore firefighter, he had found a dog that looked just like his childhood Belgian shepherd-poodle badly burned and not moving inside one of the ravaged homes. Cain and his colleagues sat around the kitchen table, telling stories of their own dogs. The camaraderie made him feel "like part of the team," Cain said.
