There was lots of drama Sunday at the LPGA's Kia Classic in Carlsbad, Calif. Not only did Sweden's Anna Nordqvist rally for a one-shot victory, but Lexi Thompson gave the U.S. team a huge boost for this summer's inaugural International Crown at Caves Valley Golf Club. Thompson's strong finish of four birdies on the last six holes - including one on the final hole - lifted the 19-year-old Floridian to ninth in the Rolex World Rankings. It also helped give the four-player U.S. team the No. 1 seed among the eight countries that will be represented in Owings Mills in late July.

Tucked in a corner of an older shopping center in Ellicott City, from the outside, White Oak Tavern is unassuming and nearly anonymous. But that's just the facade. Inside, White Oak (named for Maryland's state tree) is warm and food-centric, with an impressive craft beer selection and a well-executed menu that shines a light on local farmers. Scene & Decor White Oak's space is open and airy, with a large bar to the right, a dining room to the left and, in keeping with the "oak" theme, wood everywhere, from the floors to the benches to the walls.

- As Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette sat in his office at the Ed Smith Stadium complex on a sunny afternoon earlier this month, overlooking a well-manicured cloverleaf of fields, a bitter winter seemed like an eternity ago in more ways than one. Duquette and the Orioles went through a relatively stagnant offseason that left fans frustrated and experts predicting a fifth-place finish in the American League East. He had to defend the lack of moves as recently as the first day of February at the team's FanFest event, promising that the Orioles wouldn't go into Opening Day without improving the club.

Del. Rudolph C. Cane bid farewell Friday to the House of Delegates, saying goodbye to the chamber where he's represented the Eastern Shore as its first African-American representataive for nearly 16 years, an advocate for diversity and the interests of his region. The soft-spoken Democrat from Hebron, 79, had previously declared his intention to retire at the end of his fourth term. But he departed a little more than a week before the 90-day legislative session ends because he's scheduled to have back surgery on Monday.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 27, 2014
It's the kind of power play that crops up when voters aren't paying close attention. The Republicans Harford County elected to the Maryland House of Delegates have introduced a legislative measure that would give them standing in certain matters that are decided by the county's Republican Central Committee. Ordinarily, it's the kind of move that has all the significance of re-arranging the deck furniture on a ship that isn't in any danger whatsoever. The reality of local politics is that the county central committees have rather limited roles in matters of public policy.

Throughout the month of March, we celebrate the history of American women whose contributions blazed trails for women's empowerment and equality. We look to the past to commemorate their stalwart determination to break down barriers in the face of adversity; and we look to the future as we continue this legacy of our mothers and grandmothers. Against social convention and often legal restraints, women have created a legacy that expands the frontiers of possibility for generations to come.
