A Baltimore woman received a 40-year prison sentence Monday in the death of her 1-year-old grandson and abuse of her granddaughter after a judge said she rubbed methadone onto the children's gums before she put them to bed and headed off to a party. Towanda Reaves, 51, took responsibility for the boy's death but said she never meant to kill him. "This is not the intentional killing of her grandson, but those who think this was some form of tragic accident misunderstand the case, and misunderstand the jury's analysis of it," said Baltimore Circuit Judge Timothy Doory.

The Towanda (Pa.) High School baseball team was making the second stop of its senior trip to various major league ballparks when Tuesday's Orioles postponement put it behind schedule. There was no doubt in the senior players and statisticians' minds that they would come to the rescheduled game. "We were definitely coming back," statistician Christine Vendello said. Towanda coach Bill Sexton, 53, said because of flooding throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, it was an easy decision to change plans to catch all three games of the Orioles' series against the Philadelphia Phillies instead of traveling to another city.
