A law professor who is teaching Maryland's public defenders to better serve their poor clients amid "crushing" caseloads is among the winners of this year's MacArthur Foundation "genius" grants.

He arrived in Baltimore in May for a year-long stint at the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, his first attempt at changing a statewide system.

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.

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.

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.

One might not associate ocean fishing with 100-pound fish, sponsorships and millions in cash prizes. But for fishing boat captain Ted Deppe, that's what it is. The 52-year-old from Crownsville, along with two crewmates and five anglers, spend much of their free time competing in ocean fishing competitions, and have been very successful - so much so that Deppe's team was recently offered a sponsorship from Under Armour, which pays for its gear....
