    In 1983, Deputed Testamony surged through the mud to capture the Preakness Stakes. He was the last Maryland-bred horse to win the race. The horse's trainer, J.

    Debbie Harry and Blondie: Still keeping it fresh, 40 years in

    Blondie is still a group. Back in the group's '70s heyday, when it was one of the biggest (and most popular) things to come out of New York's punk movement, buttons with that slogan were a reminder that the band was more than Debbie Harry, its powerful and arrestingly photogenic lead singer.

    Why is Cal Ripken Jr.'s divorce case sealed?

    When former Oriole Cal Ripken Jr. and his wife, Kelly, divorced last week, the documents were placed under seal in Baltimore County Circuit Court. That's not the case for most divorces.
