Laurel Park $100,000 Sprint more likely for Ben's Cat Owner-trainer King Leatherbury said Saturday that he is leaning toward entering Ben's Cat in the $100,000 Sprint at next Saturday's Jim McKay Maryland Million but won't make a decision until he handicaps both the Sprint and $125,000 Turf. Ben's Cat, who could become the first horse to win four Maryland Million races, is pre-entered in both races. Leatherbury, 81, says that if his decision is clear-cut, he will not cross-enter the horse, as he did last year.

At some point, UMBC coach Don Zimmerman will consider retiring and riding into the sunset. But even he isn't sure when that will happen. “I enjoy coming to work every day, and I think this job is certainly challenging,” the 61-year-old Zimmerman said Monday morning, days after the university announced agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Zimmerman that will keep him with the Retrievers through the 2016 season. “I'm excited for the challenges, and I'm going to keep going as long as UMBC wants me.

Wednesday's front page was a lesson in vision for Maryland. In one corner, Freeman A. Hrabowski III is named as one of the 100 most influential people in the U.S. by Time for what he has been able to do as president of the University of Maryland Baltimore County. In the opposite corner, Del. Anthony J. O'Donnell encourages the General Assembly to leave the state's "doomsday" budget in place. The reason we are facing doom is that Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller "ran out of time" in doing the one job that the legislature has to get done - passing an annual budget.

I disagree with your assessment that the University of Maryland, Baltimore County needs a name change ("The checkmate club," April 13) for one simple reason: brand identity. The goal of any entity that provides a product or service is to differentiate itself from the competition. Universities and colleges are no different and each strives to develop an academic uniqueness that can be identified with that institution. Many years ago, at a time when UMBC was an unknown college often considered a second rate institution relative to the state's so-called flagship university, the faculty and staff at UMBC considered those very name changes that you suggest, MIT (Maryland Institute of Technology)

Letter writer Raymond Hoff bemoans what he calls UMBC's "doomsday" budget, which is really a "live within your means" budget ("UMBC excellence imperiled by 'doomsday,'" April 23). Mr. Hoff complains that UMBC faculty and staff have not had a cost-of-living increase in three years. But he should be happy to still have a job - a luxury not available to legions of unemployed Marylanders, some of whom have been unemployed for three years. He talks about academics who have moved out of the state and the difficulty of hiring replacements for them.

The just-completed Performing Arts and Humanities Building atop the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, makes quite a statement from almost every angle — the sun-reflecting, stainless-steel-wrapped Concert Hall; the glass-enclosed Dance Cube jutting from the structure; views of the downtown Baltimore skyline from upper floors. Phase one of the project was finished two years ago; phase two wrapped up in time for this week's start of UMBC's academic year.
