Lori's A. M. Buzz

Good morning! I'm here today for Lori, who's wrapping up her vacation in sunny California. Here in the D.C. area, we'll also enjoy a sunny and not-too-humid day, with temperatures in the 80s by this afternoon. The weekend is likely to be hotter, stickier and maybe stormier.

Stay with washingtonpost.com for the latest scores and news from the World Cup games (and drinking) starting this morning. All those soccer matches mean lots of cash for D.C. area bars, WJLA says. The Post offers this list of bars where you can watch your favorite teams.

PostLocal.com will follow all day the news of a manhunt after a Maryland state trooper was shot and killed early this morning in the parking lot of an Applebee’s. Police are searching for the suspect, who is considered armed and dangerous, and may have fled into the nearby Forestville area neighborhood.

And come back to PostLocal.com later today for coverage of first lady Michelle Obama’s graduation speech in Anacostia this afternoon, and a Maryland couple who trek into the woods to clip invasive vines and make sculptures. No, really.

If you haven't seen it yet, watch much-hyped Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg on David Letterman's "Top 10." (No. 10: To keep my focus on pitching, I sleep on a mound of dirt. No. 9: Every morning I spread Icy Hot on my toast…”)

Police are investigating why a Pikesville teenager was injured at a house owned by a suspected cult leader, the Baltimore Sun reports; she is now at the hospital in serious condition.

The Washington City Paper charts the more than 500 denials of freedom-of-information-act requests in the District in the first year of the Fenty administration, more than four times more than the previous administration.

There's a new census report out that shows the growing Hispanic population in Maryland and Virginia. Use the Post's searchable database to find stats in your area. (Go to the Post's DataPost page for all kinds of local data, including more census figures.)

Four out of five Latinos were discriminated against when they tried to rent an apartment in Frederick County, according to a nonprofit group as reported in the Gazette and the Frederick News-Post.

Some Montgomery County pools are struggling to stay afloat, according to the Gazette

Omg! DJs will be spinning all your bffs at the Wonderland Ballroom tonight, with a night of teen pop stars past and present …from David Cassidy to Miley Cyrus.

Have a fun and free weekend! For lots of free events this weekend, check the Going Out Guide and Weekend.
