A beautiful day with highs in the lower 80s and sunshine is forecast on what is the first day of school for many children across the region. Clear skies are forecast throughout the day, with relatively cool, dry air. Overnight lows were forecast in the mid-60s close to Baltimore City and in the lower 60s or possibly the 50s further out. Similar weather is forecast Tuesday and Wednesday, with sunshine both days but highs reaching into the mid-80s...

It was easy yesterday to ignore the bare trees, forget the Thanksgiving preparations and loll in the sun, dreaming summer dreams.On a day of record-breaking warm weather, people across Maryland savored vestiges of summer with all the enthusiasm that the approach of winter inspires. They ditched their jackets and lunched outdoors or ducked out of their offices early, as the temperature soared to 74 degrees at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, breaking by 2 degrees the record set 30 years ago.Neil Middleton, a senior engineer at Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., took the afternoon off to experience "what might be the last warm day of the year before it gets cold and snowy," he said.

Several months before his bat toss drew national headlines and a pending five-game suspension, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado wanted to find a way to give back to the city of Baltimore. The 21-year-old had attended a few charity events in the offseason and decided he wanted to hold one in his in-season home, and so on Thursday's day off, he held the first Manny Machado Celebrity BaseBowl bowling tournament to benefit the Baltimore City Recreation and Parks' Play Baseball summer program.  “I'm Miami 305 to the heart," said Machado, referencing the city's area code, "but Baltimore is my city, too. This is where I play, this is where I live half the year, so any way I can give back to this community here, it's a great way and opportunity to do it.” With a decision on his suspension appeal looming - he had his appeal hearing before Wednesday's game - Machado was eager to put the events of the past two weeks behind him. “It's been a long 24 hours,” Machado said.

The Italian phrase Un bel di - "A beautiful day" - resonates strongly in the operatic milieu. Poor little Butterfly, in Puccini's opera, pines for the return of the American naval officer she believes she married, singing about how he will surely come back to her Un bel di. And hapless poet Andrea Chenier, in Giordano's opera, awaits his execution during the French Revolution by penning one last verse that begins: Come un bel di di Maggio - "Like a...

The last time the starting lineup of a major league baseball team was announced in Washington's RFK Stadium, Richard Nixon was president, hot dogs cost 40 cents and nine men of varying talents, all living out their boyhood dreams, took to the field under a dreary sky for a final game as the home team, at least in this particular home. They were the Washington Senators - a team not known for generating much in the way of excitement, wins or revenue. Ten days after team owner Bob Short, bemoaning declining profits and poor fan support, announced in September 1971 that he was moving the team to Texas, just 14,460 paid fans showed up for the final game.

150 years ago in The SunJuly 6: The seventy-third anniversary of the national birth-day of our Independence passed off very quietly so far as Baltimore was concerned. The city scarcely ever presented a more quiet appearance. Nearly all the places of public business were closed, and by nine o'clock the streets appeared to be almost deserted.100 years ago in The SunJuly 5: TWAS A GREAT FOURTH -- The glorious Fourth of July, more glorious since Admiral's Schley's victory over the Spanish fleet on the third of July of last year, was duly celebrated in Baltimore yesterday.

OCEAN CITY - A beautiful day on shore did not translate into a good day for deep-sea anglers yesterday in the 29th annual White Marlin Open. Most of the 402 boats registered sized up the choppy prospects and decided by 8:30 a.m. to skip the day. Just 28 boats likely chose to go out in the 25-mph winds out of the north and seas running 5 to 7 feet. There were no changes on the leader board in the white marlin category. Jeffrey Goodwin of Glen Arm remains in first place with his 77-pound catch.

Then she watched as her teammate and sometime training partner, Tomba, won the men's giant slalom gold.

The dawn of the baseball season is an existential moment. For big market teams with owners willing to pay for marquee players, and general managers who build playoff-bound teams, it is a time of great anticipation. It's also a time of hope, albeit dim, for those die-hard fans of teams who are off the playoff pace by double digits year in and year out. Their cautious optimism is one that illuminates the human condition. French philosopher Albert Camus contended that life is absurd, that most of us are like the Greek tragic figure Sisyphus, who was condemned to roll a huge boulder up a mountain, only to have it roll back down as he reached the top. The essence of humanity, Camus argued, is in the moment where Sisyphus turns around to see the boulder once again at the bottom of the hill knowing he must trudge down to his toil once more, aware that this effort will again be both great and futile.

The premiere of the final season of "Dexter" starts off with a beautiful scene of Dexter flying a kite with his son, Harrison. And it's all downhill from there. Although Dexter's life seems to have improved since LaGuerta's death, there are several indications that this is untrue. He glances forlornly at the orchid his former lover, Hannah McKay, left him before she disappeared. Dexter increasingly has outbursts of anger, even going so far as to choke a man for simply cutting him off on the road.

For his 60th Orioles home opener, Justin Vitrano didn't dress in orange. He didn't paint his face, pull on a team cap or arrive hours early to guzzle beer. He didn't jump to his feet, scream or even clap as players jogged, one by one, onto the field. But when the announcer told everyone that after a long baseball-less winter, it was time to play ball, the 84-year-old — who might have enjoyed more consecutive Orioles openings than anyone else in town — allowed himself a little fist pump.

If you're one of those gloom-and-doomers who wondered whether you'd ever feel baseball fever in this town again, I hope you were at Camden Yards on Sunday. What a great scene this was. You had an announced sellout crowd of 45,267 in the house. You had a game against a National League team, the Philadelphia Phillies, that would be a great Interstate95 rival for the Orioles if they weren't now playing the Washington Nationals twice a year. (Baltimore versus Washington - that's still the Hatfields versus the McCoys for Orioles fans)

A golden November day under a blue sky and an air of sweet amiability at the polls and at the end of the day, we elected the right guy, no doubt about it. Yes, we can, and we did. A nation spread its wings and achieved altitude. Bravo, Barack Obama, Mr. Steady, who cheerfully did the rope lines, made the phone calls, answered the same questions 15,000 times, bounded up the stairs, delivered his lines with warmth and wit, ran a tight, disciplined army, and that, plus $700 million and an 80 mph wind at your back, is all you need to win the prize.

It's always this way in the garden: You cool your heels for weeks waiting for the weather to warm. Then suddenly in April one beautiful day comes along. The trees seem almost to leaf out overnight. And from that moment on until . . . well, probably November . . . you can never get caught up with all the work.So here we are. That one beautiful day has come and gone. And there will never again be enough hours in the weekend to get everything done. Here is a list of chores (as if you needed more)
