Thanks for Susan Reimer 's column on Grace McComas ( "Blue ribbons for Grace," March 26). I would think it had to be hard to write. It certainly was hard for me to read. It just brought tears to my eyes and it's hard to imagine the pain Ms. McComas' parents have had to endure. The students at Glenelg High have more sense than the adults who are teaching them. I hope those adults come to their senses and allow the students to honor Grace's life with a blue ribbon. After the pain the school inflicted on her, her classmates should step-up and to know that Grace will be remembered as a beautiful girl and a good friend.

While it is commendable that Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates weeps for his dead soldiers ("Gates showing job's toll at end," June 20), his tears are nothing compared to the millions shed by families, and let us not forget the children weeping here and abroad, since the United States went to war in late 2001. If Dick Cheney had not wanted to invade Iraq already by the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001, and George W. Bush and Barack Obama had glanced at a few history books and thought about Afghanistan in connection with the experiences of Britain, Russia, and even the U.S. there during the last century, perhaps Mr. Gates and the rest of us who grieve would not be weeping now.

Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" opens the 55th season for Prince George's Little Theatre, and the production at Bowie Playhouse qualifies as the troupe's strongest start in recent memory. This is inspired theater by every measure, starting with the choice of the largely autobiographical 1968 work by Simon, which traces his adolescent years, to begin what became known as his Eugene Trilogy. Perhaps because of frequent stagings of "The Odd Couple" and other favorites at regional theaters, Simon is sometimes dismissed as a master of the one-liner but lacking in substance.

Fans were missing linebacker Ray Lewis at the end of the Ravens' last game. Lewis is out for the season after suffering a triceps tear, a rare injury with a long recovery time. Dr. Umasuthan Srikumaran, assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said triceps tears are significant injuries for athletes. What is a triceps tear and how common is this injury? The triceps is the muscle on the back part of your arm. It originates from the shoulder blade and the upper portion of the arm, crosses the elbow joint, and inserts into the ulna, a bone in your forearm.

How touching that Gov. Martin O'Malley, Rep. Elijah Cummings and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman found time to show support for the mall shooting victims on Monday ("Community begins to rebuild as Columbia mall reopens," Jan. 27). But why were these deaths any more important than those that occur almost daily in Baltimore City? Are those slaughters any less "tragic?" I dare say our caring leaders could be kept quite busy posturing in the city, but of course there are no media crews there to capture their concern for a national TV audience.

Once again the bleeding hearts of this country are crying over the so-called botched execution of a man who tortured, raped, shot then buried alive a 19-year-old recent high school graduate ("Fresh execution questions," May 1). Why aren't those tears being shed over Stephanie Neiman? She was a young woman just entering into her adulthood and all the possibilities of her future. That future ended when Clayton Lockett took her life. He never gave a thought as to the pain and horror he was inflicting on his victim.

Maryland linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield has torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season, Terps coach Randy Edsall announced today. Hartsfield, a senior from Raleigh, N.C., suffered the injury on a running play with 2:20 remaining in the second quarter of Maryland's 33-13 loss to Georgia Tech. Hartsfield, who was blocked low on the play, had started all nine games this season. “This is another tough loss for the program,” Edsall said. “Demetrius is a captain and has been a leader of this defense both on and off the field.

The day after the George Zimmerman verdict, I hadn't cried for Trayvon Martin yet. I was still stunned, kind of punch drunk from injustice. I walked into Starbucks after hearing about the demonstrations and passionate protests on Trayvon's behalf, and they were playing Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers to Cross": "Many rivers to cross/But I can't seem to find my way over/Wandering I am lost/As I travel along the white cliffs of Dover. " It's a soulful, mournful song about lost love that hits you in your gut. Like when your grandmother dies.

It's the first day of school at the Baltimore International College, and chef instructor Kurt Reuschling is urging the students to breathe through their mouths as tears roll down their faces. The incoming freshmen - decked out in crisp white uniforms and armed with shiny kitchen knives - are cutting onions. The culinary training at the school draws chefs-to-be from various backgrounds and experience. While some have restaurant experience, others are transfer students or have military backgrounds.

The Orioles received promising news Saturday after an MRI performed on first baseman Steve Pearce's strained right abdomen revealed no tear, indicating the injury isn't serious and won't force one of the club's hottest hitters to miss an extended amount of time. “Guys have so many little things along the way,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “The big challenge is deciding what's risky to continue and something you've just got to play through. … Steve was pretty frank with me and I thought we were running some risk to continue.

At the front door of a home near Holabird Academy in Southeast Baltimore, new city schools CEO Gregory Thornton and the Baltimore Oriole Bird mascot greeted a gaggle of young children with fresh uniforms and backpacks, all ready for the first day of school. Thornton high-fived the children, his enthusiasm matching that of the grade-schoolers. He gestured toward the Oriole Bird. "Do you know that he's my friend?" "Oriole Bird your friend?" a tiny girl asked incredulously. Inside, a woman shrieked with laughter as the girl cautiously shook the mascot's hand.

CHICAGO - Once an MRI revealed a partially torn ligament in his right knee, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado knew it was possible that his season was over. But with the Orioles on the verge of their first American League East title in 17 years, Machado hoped rest and treatment would resolve the injury quickly enough to allow him to be a part of a possible postseason run. Nearly two weeks after his right knee buckled after following through on a swing, however, Machado has decided to have season-ending surgery for the second straight season.

The stunning primary loss of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the first ever suffered by any congressional leader of either party, may well reflect his Virginia constituents' souring toward his personal hubris more than any cosmic policy issue. Mr. Cantor's conspicuous focus on national political aspirations, with himself widely cast as the heir apparent to beleaguered House Speaker John Boehner, obviously didn't sit well with the folks back home. Their votes were a reminder to him of Democratic Speaker Tip O'Neill's old adage that "All politics is local.

The Orioles lost their primary starting-rotation insurance Friday afternoon when veteran left-hander Johan Santana tore his left Achilles tendon in Sarasota, Fla., ending his 2014 season. At 35, Santana's playing future also may be in jeopardy "I know the rehab is significant for these tendon injuries, and we'll have to get with him and speak to him," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said. "But he won't be able to pitch for the Orioles this season. " Santana, a two-time American League Cy Young Award winner with the Minnesota Twins, in 2004 and 2006, had been rehabilitating from his second surgery on his left shoulder in a three-year span, and was on the verge of returning to the majors.

"I think this film made me more compassionate and more aware," she said backstage, holding her Best Supporting Actress Oscar. The success of the movie, and especially her success in it, has overwhelmed her, she said. "I had a dream," she said, unsuccessfully holding back tears. "and that came true.

It would be difficult to suggest that with a healthy senior Rob Pannell, No.3 Cornell would've beaten No. 1 Virginia instead of dropping a 9-8 decision in overtime at the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. But Pannell, a two-time National Attackman of the Year, would have certainly forced the Cavaliers to pay a little attention to him. Freshman attackman Matt Donovan went even further. “Obviously, he's a tremendous player and arguably one of the best in the country.
