Westminster football coach Brad Wilson keeps a handful of adages on 3-by-5 index cards affixed to the the wall above his desk, including one that sums up his favorite style of offense: "When you're on, pass, and when you're off, pass until you're on. " This fall, the No. 5 Owls have been about as on as they can get. Their aerial attack has gained 325 yards and scored more than five touchdowns per game en route to a 10-0 record and the top seed...

Brandon Hamschin grew up next door to a dairy farm in rural western Pennsylvania. So when this 31-year old engineer headed south to work in an applied physics lab in Laurel, Md., he knew a complete change was due and willingly opted for city-life. "I was fairly homeless before I moved here," he recalled. The applied physics lab put me up. " His search for houses online paid off when he found a small, two-story row house with basement and rooftop deck on a quiet street in the east Baltimore neighborhood of Canton.

After playing most of the season at midfield or in back, Gilman's Sam Wancowicz asked whether he could move up to forward with his team down a goal in the second half of Thursday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinal against No. 1 Archbishop Curley. Gilman coach Jon Seal, not liking what he saw from his No. 5 Greyhounds in the opening minutes of the half and also taking note of some dangerous runs Wancowicz made earlier in the game, gave his standout junior the thumbs up. Wancowicz took over from there.

Two Army veterans, who tended to comrades injured in battle in wars that were more than two decades apart, received long overdue military honors Friday before an audience of family, friends and some 200 members of the Armed Forces at Fort Meade. Dr. Charles E. Rath Jr., an Army captain and surgeon 67 years ago during World War II, and Charles Shyab, a medic during the Vietnam War 45 years ago, both received the Bronze Star from Col. Jeremy Martin, commandant of the Defense Information School at the Army post in Anne Arundel County.

There have been Mullinixes farming in western Howard County for more than a century. Nearly three decades ago, as a mark of their commitment to working the land, the family sold the development rights on their farms to the state of Maryland. Now, though, brothers Mike, Stephen and Mark Mullinix say they want out. Not out of farming, necessarily, but out from under a state program that limits how they can use their land - a move that worries preservationists. "We're trying to generate income from other things, and [state officials are]

This fall, Glenelg (17-1) went into the field hockey season without Alyssa Parker, one of just two girls to ever finish a high school career in the nation with more than 100 goals and 100 assists, and captain Mary Kate Olson. Together they accounted for most of Glenelg's scoring in back-to-back championships over the past two years, whether it was scoring the goals or assisting on others. In the Class 2A title game Saturday, five different players scored as the Gladiators continued their run by winning a third straight title, 5-1, over Poolesville.

Torrey Smith's 26-yard touchdown catch from Joe Flacco more than a year ago capped the Ravens' first season sweep of the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2006. But the reverberations from that play may resonate a good deal longer. For years, Heinz Field in Pittsburgh had become a graveyard of sorts for the Ravens, a place where AFC North title runs and postseason aspirations were laid to rest. Since the stadium opened along the Ohio River in 2001, the Ravens have lost 10 of the 14 times they have traveled there, including three times in the playoffs.

Hari P. Close III was convicted of first-degree murder Thursday for fatally stabbing his 1-year-old son and hiding the body in the home of the boy's mother, the Baltimore state's attorney's office said. Close, 26, was sentenced to life in prison with all but 50 years suspended. James L. Rhodes, Close's attorney, said his client maintained his innocence and entered an Alford plea, which acknowledges that prosecutors have enough evidence to gain a conviction. "It was a sad case all around," Rhodes said.

Until this episode, Dr. Arden was the most evil man running around Briarcliff. That title now belongs to Dr. Oliver Thredson, who is finally revealed as Bloody Face. Ryan Murphy did a great job hiding the identity of Bloody Face to this point. Thredson seemed to be the most genuinely humane person working in the asylum, which isn't saying much considering its run by former Nazis, other killers and a promiscuous nun who hit a young girl while driving drunk.  So how did we come to find out that Dr. Thredson is doing his best impression of Buffalo Bill?

M. Veronica Mack from Baltimore was looking for a recipe for making Czarnina, a traditional Polish duck soup, like the one her mother used to make when she was young. Like most Czarina recipes her mother's not only called for a live duck but the duck blood as well. Mack said that these days it's difficult to find a source for live duck and almost impossible to find duck blood. She was hoping someone would be able to share a recipe for the soup that had a satisfactory substitute for the blood.

Most of the 27 Navy seniors who will honored before Saturday's final home game against Texas State have contributed to the team's success on the field the past four years. But those who have made limited appearances - or even none at all - seem to share in that experience as much as those who have had starring roles. Matt Shibata, who came to Annapolis from Honolulu, has been in for a "handful of plays" at wide receiver. Offensive linemen Evan Campbell and Beau Haworth , who came from nearby high schools with the same football dreams as their fellow plebes, have not played a single down.

The No. 7 Fallston girls soccer team made it clear throughout Saturday's Class 2A state championship game that it wouldn't back down against two-time defending champion Middletown. In an evenly-played game dominated by defense, it took a perfectly placed shot coming with 23 seconds left before the Knights from Frederick County had the needed goal to successfully defend their championship. Junior midfielder Mary Pritts solved the defensive puzzle, taking a feed from Mary-Kate Afzali and firing a shot from 22 yards that found the lower left corner.
