The federal government is expected to announce its approval Friday of a plan that would allow Maryland to continue setting hospital reimbursement rates for Medicare patients and could become a national model for reducing health care costs. The decision, eagerly anticipated by state officials and hospital executives, allows Maryland to remain the only state in the nation with a waiver from federally set Medicare rates, generally considered the lowest rates paid in every other state.

The Orioles claimed right-handed pitcher Liam Hendriks off waivers from the Chicago Cubs, the team announced Monday. The addition of the 24-year-old Hendriks, however, doesn't alter the Orioles' offseason search for a starting pitcher to help solidify the club's rotation, executive vice president Dan Duquette said. Hendriks was 2-13 with a 6.06 ERA in 30 major league games (28 starts) over the past three seasons for the Minnesota Twins before being claimed off waivers by the Cubs on Dec. 13. Last season, Hendriks was 1-3 with a 6.85 ERA in 10 games (eight starts)

The Orioles added more organizational depth Monday, claiming infielder Cord Phelps off waivers from the Cleveland Indians. Phelps -- primarily a second baseman who has also played left field, third base and shortstop in the minors - played 53 games with Cleveland over the past three seasons and compiled a .159/.221/.248 slash line. He was hitless in nine at-bats for the Indians last season, but he dealt with neck and right wrist injuries throughout the year. He did not appear in a game after July 2 and was placed on the 60-day disabled list in August.

Jonathan Graham, whose father Ernest's single-game Maryland record of 44 points against North Carolina State has held up for nearly 35 years, received a legislative relief waiver Wednesday from the NCAA after transferring this summer from Penn State. The waiver allows the 6-foot-8, 220-pound junior forward to play for the Terps this season and avoid the rule forcing most transfers to sit out a year. "We're excited for Jonathan that he is immediately eligible for the upcoming season," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement.

COLLEGE PARK - For years, Ernest Graham had a wish. The former Maryland basketball star hoped to live long enough to see his number retired by the school. The bad news for Graham - whose single-game mark of 44 points remains a team record - is that Maryland has a policy of not retiring basketball numbers. It chose to give his former No. 25 to another incoming player this season. The good news is that the incoming player is Graham's son, Jonathan. "I'm more than pleased," said the elder Graham, 54. "As a child, he wore that number.

In an effort to bolster their lineup, the Orioles have placed a trade waiver claim on Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham and are attempting to negotiate a deal, according to an industry source. The Orioles have until Friday afternoon - 48 hours after making the claim - to broker a trade with the Twins, who would likely need a prospect in return. If the teams can't reach a deal, the Twins can pull Willingham off waivers and keep him on their roster. During the trade waiver process that began this month, the Orioles have claimed several players, according to multiple sources.

The Orioles continue to attempt to bring in a hitter, claiming Seattle Mariners outfielder-first baseman Michael Morse off trade waivers after doing the same with Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham on Wednesday, according to industry sources. That doesn't mean the Orioles have landed either right-handed power hitter -- at least not yet. Once a player is claimed on revocable, trade waivers, the clubs have 48 hours to work out a deal -- that would be until Friday at noon on Willingham and Friday or Saturday for Morse, depending on when he was officially claimed.

AEGIS STAFF REPORT | August 21, 2013
As nearly 38,000 Harford County Public Schools students get ready to start classes for the 2013-14 school year on Monday, Aug. 26, a number of changes in school bus routes and policies have taken effect since last year. School bus schedules and routes for the 2013-14 school year were released last week and can be found on the school system's website and in print in the Wednesday, Aug. 21 edition of The Aegis. Among the changes are consolidating some stops into a single location, the elimination of door-to-school pickup and drop-off for countywide high school magnet program students and elimination of previous waivers that permitted some students to ride a bus when they would otherwise be required to walk because of the proximity of their homes to their schools.

The impending return of switch-hitter Wilson Betemit from the injury he suffered in spring training does not preclude the Orioles from adding a designated hitter within the next two weeks, according to the club's top executive. “We have Wilson in our organization. If he is ready, and he can help us, we would put him on our ballclub, but he's not quite ready yet. He's getting closer, but he's been out for a long time,” Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said Sunday.

Closing in on the last hour before the non-waiver trade deadline and I have a quick breather to tell you what I've heard. And that's that the Orioles aren't particularly close to a deal. Now there's the caveat that things can change rapidly. And we've seen it happen before. But right now it looks like they may not get anything done. One industry source said that's not for a lack of trying. They are apparently still contacting several teams today, but they don't want to take on a ton of salary or give up their best prospects.
