The two brightly colored rubber bands that Orioles catcher Michael Ohlman wears around his right wrist — one orange and the other green — serve as a constant reminder. They remind him of two high school friends, Brett Wagner and Josh Rogers, who died in an automobile accident 10 weeks ago. They also remind Ohlman to always wear his seat belt when he gets into a car. The bands read "Josh and Brett: Forever our Light. " "[They] died on Christmas," Ohlman said. "They weren't wearing their seat belts, so these [bracelets]

When Asa Bell fled the country in 2008 while free on $250,000 bail on gun and drug charges in Baltimore, the bail bond company appeared to be stuck with the tab from the state. Four years later, interest has increased the amount to $360,000 and counting. But Texas-based Financial Casualty Surety Co. and its local agent, 4 Aces Bail Bonds Inc., continue to fight the judgment with no apparent end in sight, as the companies exhaust their legal options. They have twice taken the case to the Court of Special Appeals, which has sent it back down on each occasion with the instruction that they pay up. A hearing Thursday in Baltimore Circuit Court ended with the same finding, but attorneys again vowed to appeal.

I plan to plant 20 low-bush blueberries. I've prepared the beds with leaf mulch, compost and sulfur. How do you recommend planting to maximize survival? We hope you have not purchased these plants yet, as we suggest that you plant Northern or Southern high-bush blueberries instead. Low-bush blueberries are essentially wild, woodland plants that are not cultivated so much as maintained by growers in New England. One reason it's difficult to grow low-bush berries in our area is that we have different mycorrhizae (beneficial soil fungi)

We all scream for ice cream. And soon some of us might be barking for it, too. Maryland's first ice cream truck for dogs is ready to roll to events and parks. It's the dream come true for the owner of a Glen Elg dog day care ever who's wanted to do it ever since reading about one opening in the U.K. "We love our dogs and for some of us, they are our family," says Kelvin Abrams, the owner of Tiki's Playhouse and its new Doggie Ice Cream truck. "I've been working on it and working on it and waiting for the right opportunity.

The number of city workers charged with rooting out property tax fraud and errors would triple — from one employee to three — under Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's budget proposal for next fiscal year. The "billing integrity" program, launched last spring, has focused on finding homestead property tax credits that go to owners who don't live in the homes receiving the break, which violates the rules. The Finance Department wants extra staff to audit all tax credits and investigate the accuracy of property assessments.

Here's something for Maryland drivers younger than 18 to consider: Did you know that because your parents sign a consent form allowing you to obtain a license, they can also have your license revoked by withdrawing that consent? "I knew that," said Ally Dickstein, a junior at Mount Hebron School, who recently attended a safe-driving presentation with her mother, Debby, at Glenelg High School. Howard County students must attend the presentation with their parents to obtain school parking passes.

Baltimore City Circuit Judge Emanuel Brown will decide whether a jury can see a police surveillance video that prosecutors say ties twin brothers Travers and Tremayne Johnson to a pit bull that was set on fire in 2009. The second trial in the animal cruelty case opened Friday with a series of requests by the brothers' defense attorneys for Brown to throw out key pieces of the prosecution's evidence, including the video and a gas can. Brown held off ruling on the motions until at least Monday, when the trial continues.

Ben Walsh doesn't have a lot of time to play games these days. As CEO and president of the Baltimore-based Pure Bang Games, Walsh spends his waking hours leading a team of nine developers aiming to release a new social game every few months.  The irony, of course, is that Walsh is a lifelong gamer who, if he ever took a vacation, "would sit down and do nothing but play" all the games he's been missing out on since starting Pure Bang in...

Some people purchase waterfront property with the intent of tearing down any structures as soon as possible. It's usually the land they are after. In 1991, Roy and Mary Jones purchased property in eastern Baltimore County on Middle River, one of the busiest tributaries on the Chesapeake Bay. They paid $235,000, and their intentions were a little different. They lived in the house instead of tearing it down. But after 20 years raising a family in the home, the couple decided it was time to start over.

Severna Park's girls lacrosse players celebrated just about as much after Thursday night's win over neighborhood rival Severn as they had after winning last year's state championship. In many ways, this victory was just as important. The No. 7 Falcons (4-0) held on for an 11-9 victory at the Anne Arundel Community College tournament, avenging last season's loss to Severn in the same event. After Ryan Bathras scored the game-winner with 4:36 to go and Morgan Torggler added her fourth goal of the game for a little insurance, goalie Camille King made a pair of big saves in the final two minutes to preserve the win. “This is just a big rivalry game for us,” Torggler said.
