At age 23, Malarie Burgess couldn't fit into restaurant booths, she had to buy clothes online, and she endured stares and comments from strangers, particularly children. The year was 2010, and she weighed 350 pounds. "I had kind of fooled myself into thinking I was OK," recalled Burgess, who grew up in Westminster. But then a family friend sat her down and urged her to change. "She said she was worried about my health," Burgess said of the friend. "Initially, I was very offended.

Of the articles I have read about the Exxon-Mobil station leak of 2006, it seems like every other paragraph mentions the $1.5 billion awarded to the 160 families involved in the class action suit and the amount that some families will receive. Some will receive a lot more than others because they suffered more. But of the three articles I have read, not one of them mentions how much the lawyers stand to gain out of the settlement. I hope the parties involved opt for one-third to go for the lawyers.

With career highs in home runs and RBIs, Nelson Cruz did more than enough to earn his first Most Valuable Oriole award this season. Now the question is whether the pending free agent will return next year to have a chance to win it again. “Hopefully I stay here, we work something out. Like I said before, I understand they're going to do whatever they think is better for the team,” Cruz, 34, said. “I love it here. I love the fans, I love my teammates.” Cruz, who leads the major leagues in home runs with 39 and is second in the American League with 106 RBIs, said before Sunday's series finale against the Boston Red Sox that he'll think about his contract situation once his season is completed.

Big-bucks movies -- "Sister Act," "Ghost," "Flashdance," "Dirty Dancing," to name a few -- get turned into stage musicals with some frequency. Indie films form a smaller screen-to-boards subset. Of these, "Once," based on the minuscule-budget, shot-in-17-days Irish film written and directed by John Carney, may be the most distinctive. With its eight Tony Awards in 2012, including best music, "Once" continues to win fans and strong reviews on the road. The national touring production, which arrives Tuesday to open the Hippodrome Theatre 's Broadway Across America season, launched a year ago and will keep traveling at least through next summer.

The Orioles announced their organizational minor league player and pitcher of the year award winners Thursday. And while neither player started the season among the team's top 10 prospects, both worked their way to the doorstep of the major leagues with breakout years. First baseman Christian Walker was named the team's Brooks Robinson Player of the Year, while right-hander Tyler Wilson is the Jim Palmer Pitcher of the Year recipient. Walker, the Orioles' fourth-round selection from the University of South Carolina in 2012, hit .288/.357/.489 with 26 home runs and 96 RBIs in 139 games between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk this season.
