Baltimore-area venues would stage Olympic events under a Washington, D.C.-based group's plan to explore a bid to host the 2024 Summer Games. "Our intention is to have this be the entire region," said Robert T. Sweeney, president of DC 2024. "Quite honestly, we can't do it without Baltimore. Baltimore is a big partner in our game plan. " DC 2024 formed several months ago and has been working behind the scenes to build support for a bid, Sweeney said. The group has reached out to Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, Virginia Gov.

Does John Leopold have Sheila Dixon to blame? He'll have plenty of time — 30 days to be specific — to contemplate such a cosmic question, as the former Anne Arundel County executive serves out the surprise prison sentence he received Thursday for misconduct in office. The not-quite-hanging judge who found him guilty on two counts of misconduct and ordered him locked up was Dennis Sweeney, who in 2009 presided over the trial of another public official gone wrong: former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon.

Those who criticize the John Leopold case - that it was "too much squeeze for too little juice," a waste of taxpayer money - should read the 40-page memorandum by Dennis M. Sweeney, the judge who presided over the Anne Arundel County executive's trial. It is a superb document that navigates through foggy territory - how and when an elected official deploys the police officers provided by taxpayers for his protection - and draws a clear line between the criminal and the just creepy, between use and abuse.

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold must stand trial on allegations that he misused his police detail for personal and political gain. Judge Dennis M. Sweeney ruled Monday that a jury will hear all five counts leveled against Leopold, who is accused of dispatching his security detail for tasks that ranged from compiling files on perceived political enemies to ferrying Leopold to sexual rendezvous. Sweeney's ruling denies Leopold's effort to throw the case out of court before the scheduled Sept.

In 1992, when a pair of car thieves in suburban Maryland kidnapped a baby and dragged the child's mother to her death, Judge Dennis Sweeney's biggest free-press/fair-trial worry was ensuring that jurors didn't read the newspaper or listen to television or radio reports about the case. But in 2009, when Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon was brought up on corruption charges, Judge Sweeney — summoned from retirement to hear the case — had to contend with the "Facebook Five," a group of jurors who "friended" one another during the trial.

After losing by just one try in the 2010 MIAA championship game to Loyola, the Mount St. Joseph rugby team entered this past season with one goal in mind: to not let history repeat itself and, in turn, win the program's first conference title. The team used the 2010 championship defeat as motivation all season, and players donned shirts emblazoned with the game's final score and the words, "Not this year. Gaels rugby all the way. " The Gaels lived up to the message printed on their shirts and followed through with their goal, defeating Calvert Hall, 29-24, on May 18 in the MIAA rugby championship.
