Nan has gone back to work. Her oldest will soon go to college and her youngest can keep track of a house key, so it is time.And while the three boys she has been at home with for 15 years have not missed a beat since she returned to teaching, Nan's friends may never get over the loss.She will not be there for a cup of coffee after the kids leave for school -- her front porch was just the place to postpone the start of your day. And though she will be home after school (as in: "Kids, if Mommy doesn't get home in time, just go to Nan's")

My review of Sunday's sad CBS telecast of the Ravens loss to the Browns focused on the way tweets from Sun reporters provided what the network should have given viewers but didn't. Jeff Zrebiec, who was in Cleveland to write a game story for The Sun, repeatedly gave his followers 140-character word pictures during the contest that the CBS Sports cameras and direction missed or ignored. He tweeted in the first half, for example, about frustrated and angry Ravens players yelling as they came off the field.

Keith Cyphers, one of the thousands of Verizon Communications Inc. workers out on strike for more than two weeks, earned an honest day's pay yesterday, back on the job repairing telephone lines, and was downright happy to do it. The Belcamp resident, a cable splicer in the Baltimore area for the phone giant, was among the first of the thousands of Communications Workers of America members to return to the job yesterday after a 17-day strike ended at...

Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo reminded his players after a practice this week that they are not like other college football teams that can simply show up and win on sheer talent alone. "We're not like Alabama or LSU," he said. As Navy (3-2) heads to Toledo (3-3) Saturday after one of its more one-sided losses in Niumatalolo's six years as head coach, the Midshipmen need to resemble the team that beat Indiana and Delaware to start the 2013 season, as well as the one that dominated academy rival Air Force in the second half.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - As the clock ticked down toward what would have been Major League Baseball's ninth work stoppage in 30 years, many of the Orioles were oblivious to the sound. They were asleep in their hotel rooms after a late flight from Texas, and news that the players union and ownership had settled yesterday on a four-year collective bargaining agreement could wait a little longer. Jeff Conine didn't have that luxury. He participated in an 8 a.m. conference call with the players association that lasted 30 minutes.

In times like this, a nation finds out who its friends are. Those who claimed Clinton hit Sudan to distract from his sins and those who denounce Sharon for overreacting ain't seen nuthin' yet. To hit Afghanistan is one thing. To do the Taliban tangible harm is quite another. Now people may quit trying to build the tallest building. Defeat the terrorists. Go back to work.

LEAVING ASIDE the cross-claims in the high-stakes class warfare that brought West Coast docks to a standstill for the first time in 40 years, President Bush's much-anticipated move yesterday to use the Taft-Hartley Act to reopen the 29 ports was necessary. But history strongly suggests forcing the longshoremen back to work for 80 days doesn't guarantee a solution to the negotiations -- and could even delay one. Resolution still must come from talks between the dockworkers and the Pacific shipping industry, as it properly should.

IT'S HARD for me to believe that the restaurant where I used to bus tables and trade quips with legendary Baltimore Colts players will soon be filled with shopping carts. Of course, I'm talking about the Golden Arm restaurant, which was started by Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas and defensive back Bobby Boyd at York Road Plaza a generation ago.The restaurant, which Mr. Unitas sold in 1988, recently closed and the adjacent Giant Food Store is to expand into the Golden Arm's space. The store expansion and other factors are said to have squeezed the restaurant out of its 27-year home.

Labor Day weekend - the annual celebration of the American worker and our last summer fling - seems also a fitting time to review the state of working Baltimore. The facts are these: •Baltimore City's unemployment rate, as of July, is 10.8 percent. That's almost 4 percentage points higher than the state's rate (at 7.1 percent) and equates to some 30,700 adults who are actively seeking work to support their families. •When added together with those who are no longer seeking work, according to the U.S. Census/American Community Survey, a full 46 percent of the city's adults between ages 16 and 64 are either unemployed or out of the labor force altogether.

The Orioles' off day in Toronto on Thursday was as productive as they come. Right-hander Jason Hammel, regaining his strength after having a stomach virus, threw a successful side session at the Rogers Centre, so he will start tonight's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. New father Miguel Gonzalez traveled cross-continent from California to Toronto after the birth of his first child. He will start Saturday. In Sarasota, Fla., left-hander Wei-Yin Chen took a step forward in returning from a left oblique strain, throwing a three-inning simulated game.

Now that I'm back in the office full time after a few months of maternity leave, I've got to reorient my thinking and remember how to act when I'm around adults more often. I also need to return to my workplace habit of making to-do lists to stay organized. To that end, here's the Top 8 things I need to stop doing now that I'm back in the office: 1. Going to the bathroom with the door open so I can hear whether anyone is crying or up to any mischief. (Or both.) 2. Corollary: Announcing that I'm going "potty" now. 3. Going "SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

Most of the Sparrows Point steel mill employees who were laid off several days before Christmas will be returning to work, according to a union representative. "There will be a little bit [of] a trickle, but the bulk of them will be returning this weekend," said Chris MacLarion, acting president of United Steelworkers Local 9477, which represents workers at the Baltimore County steel mill. Employees who work in the initial stages of steel making will return to work first, he said.

"When I grow up, I want to be a supply chain analyst. " You don't hear these words too often - but I'm hoping that changes fast. When I was a child, my siblings and I would sit around the kitchen table and tell our parents about the jobs we might hold as adults. My mother bought me a bag with bandages and a toy thermometer; I wanted to be a nurse. Radiologic technologist, debit card specialist and, yes, supply chain analyst just weren't common terms back then. But today these jobs - and thousands more - are providing opportunities and hope to people entering or re-entering the workforce.

Forget the popular notion that everybody was a loser during the long, boring baseball labor dispute. The real umpires went back to work yesterday, and, make no mistake about it, they came back as clear-cut winners.There might have been some some anxious moments, but even the players have to be envious of the settlement negotiated in baseball's "other" labor dispute. Don Fehr, executive director of the players association, always drives a good bargain for his clients, but he'll be hard-pressed to match the deal made by Richie Phillips, his counterpart for the umpires.

Monday dawned wet, gray and windy, but Ann Varghese wanted to get back to work. Needed to, she felt, after all that had happened. At 7:15, she pulled onto Charles Street and drove out to Carroll County for the first time since enduring 55 hours in a collapsed hotel in Haiti. "Hi, everybody," Varghese, 31, said cheerfully as she walked into the New Windsor offices of IMA World Health. One by one, she hugged several co-workers amid smiles and bits of laughter. Someone clapped. Hovering over the happy reunion was a yellow balloon with a big smiley face.

Frank Voltaggio, uncle to newly minted celebrity chefs, watched them take first and second place on "Top Chef" at a swanky late-night party. Then it was off to work, stocking shelves at Safeway overnight. Most of Frederick came back to reality Thursday, the day after native sons Michael and Bryan Voltaggio completed their run on the Bravo television show. It was a hard landing for some in town, and not just for the few who overdid it on drinks at the unofficial viewing party at Bryan's restaurant, Volt.
