Excessive drinking among college students is a public health problem that is larger than just the colleges and universities. It is a problem for our entire state. The more than 270,000 students attending college in Maryland comprise a large and critical segment of our future workforce. This is why I was proud to work with the leadership and staff of the Maryland Collaborative to Reduce College Drinking and Related Problems this legislative session to ban the sale of extreme-strength "grain" alcohol.

I've had more of these games this year than in my entire [coaching] career."Down two goals in the second period, the Rangers scored five third-period goals to rally for the win.Joe Paterson scored on a two-on-one break for a 4-3 Binghamton lead at 5 minutes, 42 seconds of the third.

Let's try to be kind. "Sons and Daughters," the new CBS family drama that debuts at 10 tonight on WBAL-TV (Channel 11), is, well, awful.It is hard to say which is worse -- the acting or the writing.There is one real actor on-screen, Don Murray. He plays Bing Hammersmith, the patriarch of the Hammersmith family, which is at the center of this weekly drama. But Murray's work is lost in a sea of performances that register at the level of bad dinner-theater acting. The ensemble of mumbles and stumbles is led by Lucie Arnaz, daughter of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

Many of the 5,283 inside the Carrier Dome watched in near-silence as the reigning national runner-up got demolished. Even Maryland coach John Tillman was "shocked" by the final score.

Catalina Byrd's early-morning tweets last Saturday tell a tale of TV change. “I said I was going to bed hours ago,” one tweet written shortly after midnight began. “But then 'House of Cards' got me all caught up.” A little over an hour later, she wrote again, “After episode 3 goes off, I have to call it a night ... but tomorrow I'm right back on it …” Later yet: “I made it to episode 5 …” Byrd, a Baltimore journalist (@CatalinaByrd), is one of many who spent last weekend on the cutting edge of a new way to watch TV - or, more specifically, a new way to watch TV shows that were never on television - in the topsy-turvy world of massive media transformation these days.

Soon after hearing that Hostess Brands Inc. was shutting down for good, Lisa Renee Clark wasted no time dashing out to the Wonder Hostess Bakery Thriftshop in Glen Burnie. But by midday Friday, she was almost too late. The Twinkies had sold out. Supplies of Wonder white bread were dwindling. And the shelves appeared bare of Ho Hos. Finally spotting two boxes of the cream-filled snack cakes, Clark snatched them up. "So many fun, good things from my childhood are going away," said Clark, 43, a self-employed production assistant and camera operator from Pasadena.

Michael K. Williams, who played Omar in "The Wire," is talking about his years of drug abuse and saying he's surprised it didn't lead to him ending up in a body bag. Williams tells the Newark Star-Ledger that while he was playing Omar in the Baltimore-based HBO series, he was doing cocaine and marijuana and hanging around with felons on some of the scarier streets of Newark. “I was playing with fire,” Williams tells the paper. “It was just a matter of time before I got caught and my business ended up on the cover of a tabloid or I went to jail or, worse, I ended up dead.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- In 1937 at Rancho Santa Fe Country Club, a first-year tournament called the Bing Crosby Professional-Amateur took off. Well, "took off" might not be exactly the correct phrase. Floated away is probably more accurate. It rained so hard for three days that some of the bored players spent time shooting ducks on a pond near the 18th green. When the players grew weary of that, they shot at the hat belonging to Bing's brother, Larry. Sam Snead won the fledgling, rain-splattered, one-round tournament and its $500 prize.
