Sandy Spring Bancorp said Thursday it turned a $6.2 million profit in the second quarter, the result of its efforts to reduce problem loans during the past few quarters. On a per-share basis, the Olney-based bank holding company earned 26 cents per share for the quarter. A year earlier, Sandy Spring lost $280,000, or 2 cents per share. Additionally, the company said it repaid half of the $83 million it received in 2008 from the government's Troubled Asset Relief Program. During the second quarter, the bank reduced the amount of money set aside for losses to $6.1 million, down from $10.6 million a year earlier.

Dorothy Grubb said she feared her boyfriend would kill her. She wrote in court papers that he threatened to do that, then throw her in his truck and drive off down the road. Two years later, according to police, Clyde Campbell followed through on that threat. Police charged the 53-year-old Campbell in Grubb's death Wednesday, a day after they found her body on the side of Peninsula Expressway in Dundalk. Investigators said Campbell loaded the body, wrapped in a tarp, into his Ford F-150 pickup truck.

With the financial markets falling apart in late 2008, the parent of Baltimore County Savings Bank figured it couldn't hurt to have more capital on hand. So BCSB Bancorp applied for the federal banking bailout program and received $10.8 million in aid, believing the U.S. Treasury's stated intention that the investments would be available only to "good banks," said Joseph J. Bouffard, the bank's president and chief executive. Given the public's negative perception of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, Bouffard was thrilled last month when his Perry Hall-based company repaid the money in full, plus dividend payments it has already made, becoming the latest bank to exit the controversial program.

Not a lot to see here Friday in the Orioles' lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards. Steve Pearce is batting second and Caleb Joseph starts again. Those are the only slight changes - and they really aren't surprising at this point. Ubaldo Jimenez is on the mound tonight and he is looking for his first win at Camden Yards. Not really a good thing considering it is mid-June and he was paid $50 million over four years to be the Orioles' ace. And one last thing: Yes, the tarp was on the field here.

Annapolis Bancorp, parent of BankAnnapolis, received $8.15 million in TARP money in January 2009 and had repaid half of that last year. The company said that over the years, it paid out $1.4 million in dividends to the government.

Delmar Bancorp has no regrets about taking a $9 million investment from the federal Troubled Asset Relief Program, even though some banks have rushed for the exit. "We did it as an abundance of caution," said Ed Thomas, president of the parent of Bank of Delmarva, which serves the still-struggling Eastern Shore. "I'm glad we did it because we didn't know how deep the financial downturn was going to be. " TARP provided capital at an attractive price, he said. Created four years ago as the country's financial system teetered on the verge of collapse, TARP provided more than 700 banks with a combined $205 billion of capital by buying dividend-paying preferred shares.

DETROIT -- We're three hours before game time, and by the looks of things, there should be a game here today. It's raw - 38 degrees at 10 a.m. And it's foggy, though that fog seems to be lifting some.  The mound and home plate were covered. But the full tarp had been out in right field until 10:15, when the grounds crew placed it back over the infield. They then started shaking it again and rolling it up, so who knows? The Orioles will be a little bleary-eyed. Their plane didn't get into Detroit until about 3:15 a.m. The players didn't really get settled into the hotel until about 4, I was told.

About halfway to the other side, Mark Willaby slipped, fell and hit his head on a metal clip on the tarp.
