A large, two-alarm fire burned in an abandoned lacrosse ball factory in Kingsville on Monday afternoon, bringing between 80 and 100 firefighters to the scene, according to a Baltimore County fire spokesman. The old factory belonged to the Belko Corp., a rubber manufacturer, but has been abandoned for years, said Lt. Paul Massarelli, the spokesman. Fire personnel were first dispatched to the factory, near the intersection of Jericho Road and Woodberry Place in the Franklinville area, about 3:35 p.m., he said.

Tom Rowe, like many in Baltimore, woke up conflicted on Friday. When he opened his closet but got no answers, he took to Twitter. "Purple or orange?" he typed. "I'm torn. " With the Ravens kicking off their season Monday and the Orioles on a jaw-dropping winning streak that many believe could lead to postseason competition, Baltimore's fans find themselves in the happiest of conundrums, torn between the tradition that is Purple Friday and the sudden chance - pushed this week by the city's mayor - to give Orange Friday a whirl.

Reservoir's two-time All-Metro frst-team selection Amanda Jackson will likely miss her senior season while recovering from knee surgery in the spring. Jackson, a versatile forward who also saw time at midfield and defense in her first three years, tore her anterior cruciate ligament playing club soccer in early March. With her rehab going well, there's a slight chance she may be able to return to the field near the playoffs, but Reservoir coach Josh Sullivan said she would have to be at 100 percent.

A strong case could have been made for junior quarterback C.J. Brown's being the player the Maryland football team could least afford to lose this season. Not only is Brown the most experienced player at the position, he is the only quarterback to have played in a game for the Terps. How much Maryland misses Brown will be learned quickly after it was announced Wednesday that he would miss the entire season with a knee injury suffered during a noncontact drill at practice Tuesday night.

The old Trailways Bus depot on Fayette Street was crowded, dingy, filled with a dubious clientele and gruff bus drivers. But as it is torn down, I'm sentimental about it. I became inured to its gritty but essentially harmless nature. In time, it became a symbol of non-expense account, third-class travel, the kind that fits a Baltimorean's pocketbook. And now, at the beginning of the vacation season, I think of all the times I bailed out of town via a cheap ticket aboard a Trailways coach.

Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, underwent successful surgery on his torn Achilles tendon Tuesday afternoon, but his availability for the 2012 season remains a significant question mark. The surgery was performed by noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte,N.C. "After some recovery time, [Suggs] will begin the process of rehabbing the area," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement released by the team Tuesday night.

When team officials announced last week that Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs had torn his Achilles tendon, former Ravens offensive lineman Wally Williams understood what Suggs was experiencing. Nearly 15 years ago at almost the same time, Williams tore the Achilles tendon in his right, or plant foot, while backpedaling in off-season drills. He returned in six months to start the final 10 games of the 1997 season. Suggs, 29, is expected to have surgery Tuesday morning.

Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada will decide this week whether to have surgery to repair a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow or attempt to rest and rehab it. On Monday and Tuesday, Wada was examined in California by Dr. Lewis Yocum, who removed bone chips from Wada's elbow after the 2007 season. Yocum, the Los Angeles Angels' team doctor, confirmed the tear and has recommended surgery, according to Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette.

One of the key cogs in No. 1 Aberdeen's run to its second straight state final four, senior guard Lakeia Hayden is the Eagles' floor director. Although more a shooting guard, she ran the point last season and now shared those duties with freshman Kierra Palmer. She combines smart play and a keen eye for her teammates with a lethal 3-point shot. Hayden, who has played this season with a torn meniscus and a partially-torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee, averages eight points and three assists for the Eagles (25-1)

Orioles Gold Glove right fielder Nick Markakis, who has been bothered for months by what he initially thought was a deep bone bruise near his abdomen, had surgery Thursday to repair an abductor muscle and his rectus abdominis, also known as the “six-pack” muscle. Despite the extensive muscle damage, Markakis hopes to play in exhibition games by mid-to-late March and expects to be ready for Opening Day, April 6 at Camden Yards against the Minnesota Twins. He has already spoken to manager Buck Showalter about a potential plan that will ease him into spring training, which begins in earnest with the exhibition opener March 5. “Spring training is what it is. I think if I get two solid weeks in at the end of games, I'll be fine,” Markakis said.
