As Baltimore police continued to search Wednesday for the driver of a truck that struck and killed a bicyclist this month at a downtown intersection, an attorney representing the victim's family said a surveillance video shows that the vehicle "just abruptly took a right without a turn signal," causing the collision. About 11:40 a.m. Aug. 4, John R. "Jack" Yates, 67, of Charles Village was riding south on Maryland Avenue when he got tangled in the rear wheels of the truck at West Lafayette Avenue.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Indiana coach Cam Cameron denied rumors Saturday that he would leave to become an assistant coach with the Detroit Lions. "Both of my feet are planted at Indiana University," Cameron said. "We've got a job to get done, and we're not as close as we need to be to getting it done. "I don't know where that stuff comes from." Cameron coached at Michigan with new Lions coach Gary Moeller. In Cameron's four years at Indiana, the Hoosiers have yet to finish with a winning record and have a combined mark of 13-31.

A group of bicyclists gathered at a downtown intersection Sunday evening to dedicate a "ghost-bike" memorial to a 67-year-old cyclist killed last week in a collision with a truck. At least 50 people observed a moment of silence to remember John R. "Jack" Yates, whose bike became tangled in the rear wheels of a truck at Maryland and West Lafayette avenues while on his way to the University of Baltimore nearby to drop off a document. As a memorial to Yates, a tire-less bike painted white was chained and locked to a traffic pole at the site of the fatal accident.

Because of her current state of "wackness," her general lack of flavor and soul, hip-hop and I have barely been on speaking terms lately. The thug-isms and minstrel-like "pimpalicious" fantasies she celebrates more and more these days are straight-up boring. (And I'm not even going to get into how destructive those warped images can be.) But a Chicago rapper with a slight lisp, a sharp mind and a razor wit may bring us back together again. Enter Rhymefest. His major-label debut, Blue Collar, landed in stores last week.

Marty Glickman, who died this month at the age of 83, was among sports broadcasting's most influential figures, working behind microphones for more than 50 years and developing descriptive phrases, such as "top of the key," that are now part of the language. He mentored Marv Albert and tutored Bob Costas, and yet despite a reputation for painting word pictures with precise, animated diction, he rarely found himself called to the national stage. Part of the reason may well have been anti-Semitism.
