Tennis, soccer champion, war hero dies at 101

Legendary tennis figure Doyle Royal has died at the age of 101. The longtime Bethesda resident lived a full life as a championship-winning soccer and tennis player and coach and World War II hero.

Parents, student-athletes hold rally for fall sports

Even with Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan giving the green light to fall sports in schools, Montgomery County is continuing to hold off.

That decision is upsetting some parents and their kids. Some families rallied Tuesday at the county executive building in Rockville, chanting “start fall sports” and “let us play.” [Fox 5]

Maryland’s dire budget projections so far have not come to pass

Maryland’s financial picture is far rosier than doomsday predictions this spring that forecast state revenue losses in the billions, state analysts said Tuesday.

Federal stimulus spending and expanded unemployment benefits blunted the worst-case scenario, keeping money circulating in the local economy and siphoning some of it into state coffers. [Washington Post]
