Nobody asked me, but someone — and it might as well be me — ought to tell Martin O'Malley to curb his enthusiasm over the blue crabs making a comeback. It's great that the count is the best in more than a decade, but the Chesapeake Bay is still a mess, and the last thing we need is a governor crowing about a resurgent resource. Next thing you know, there's a battle with watermen over extending the season and increasing the catch. When something's in abundance, the human instinct is to fully exploit it. Been there, done that.

More than 150 years ago, famed philosopher Henry David Thoreau published his iconic book “Walden,” which chronicled his two years living as one with nature in a cabin set on Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Today, some travelers who seek a Walden-esque experience still want 21st-century amenities and perks. At Blue Moon Rising, a new eco-friendly vacation village nestled in the mountains of Western Maryland, they'll find the best of both worlds. Following a soft opening in fall 2013, the retreat officially opened to guests June 27. Tucked away on 15 wooded acres replete with towering oak, hickory and hemlock trees, various flora, fauna and a quiet stream, the property boasts 14 environmentally conscious, compact and energy-efficient cabins (ranging from 300 to 450 square feet)

After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

TELEVISION coverage of the Orioles' games these days finds the camera reaching out beyond the stadium to make the point that the stadium is, happily, located downtown, well within the old city. Frequently, the camera finds its way to, and comes to rest at, the old Bromo Seltzer Tower building -- sans the "blue bottle." All of which has been leading to suggestions from fans (and this newspaper) to the city fathers that they "bring back the blue bottle."That's not a bad idea, but it will take some doing.

Has Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Maryland overstated its net worth by as much as $100 million? Has it squandered millions on new, poorly-managed subsidiaries? Has it hidden money-losing ventures from state regulators and even from its own board of directors?These are now critical questions. The U.S. Senate permanent subcommittee on investigations issued a scathing report in September accusing Maryland's largest health care insurer of doing all of those things and more.According to the Senate report, Marylanders covered by Blue Cross-Blue Shield have received bad service while their premiums have jumped more than 25 percent a year.

The biggest hit of the night during Friday's Orioles-Athletics game at Camden Yards came during the seventh-inning stretch, when a bare-chested fan ran onto the field. He ran around as the Baltimore City Police closed in on him. He ran down the third-base line and slid face first into home plate. He got up to the cheers of fans. And then he went down just as quickly - a blind-side tackle from plate umpire Jeff Kellogg. The fans erupted again.

Today's blue-rinsed club ladies still had their natural hair color the last time blue had any kind of fashion cachet. With the exception of former first lady Barbara Bush, who tried to give it a boost, blue has been the color of the fashion-impaired and bus drivers.This spring, blue is back like a bolt.Ralph Lauren cuts it clean and clear, in all shades of sea, sky and jewels in an icy shantung trench, sapphire leather jeans or an aqua jersey slink.

TORONTO -- Moments after their 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, the Orioles finally found out who they would face in the American League Division Series. It had been a 12-day wait since the Orioles clinched the AL East. But inside the visiting clubhouse of the Rogers Centre, as the Orioles packed their bag for the trip home to Baltimore - it wasn't baseball, but NFL football on the televisions. The Orioles believe they are ready for the Detroit Tigers, who will travel to Camden Yards to open the ALDS on Thursday.

TORONTO - Much bigger goals lie ahead for the Orioles, and their final regular-season series here is less about winning games than about fine-tuning for the postseason. Still, the Orioles don't want to trudge to the postseason. Following their 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Saturday, the Orioles have lost three consecutive games for the first time since being swept at Wrigley Field five weeks ago, and for just the second time since the All-Star break. The loss also ensured that the Orioles will finish the regular season with just their third road series loss since the break.

They chased the Los Angeles Angels down to the final three days of the regular season for the American League's best record, but following the Orioles' 4-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night...

In the past month, Johns Hopkins has routed Randolph-Macon (42-3 on Sept. 6) and Moravian (33-14 on Saturday). But the Blue Jays also had a 27-20 win over Centennial Conference opponent Susquehanna on Sept. 13 that was closer than expected. So which game is an accurate indicator of the Blue Jays' potential? Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff isn't sure. “I still think we're a work in progress,” he said Wednesday morning. “If we play a clean game with no turnovers and minimize big plays defensively, we can play with most people and certainly in our conference.

Fashion houses have renamed our colors, making plain old green a more stylish-sounding celadon, turning brown into cappuccino, changing white to stone.So that sweater you got from Aunt Betty for Christmas just isn't your color and you want to exchange it. OK, but first you've got to figure out what color this color that's not your color actually is.Green? Not a chance. If it's out of this year's Eddie Bauer catalog, it could be celadon. Or basil. Or alpine green, dark pine, cactus, mallard, juniper, dark spruce or thyme.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has been showing a lot of love for the bicentennial of the Battle of Baltimore and the poem Francis Scott Key was inspired to write after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry. The BSO celebrated that anniversary on Sept. 13 during the nationally televised Star-Spangled Spectacular concert at Pier Six, then kept the theme going for its annual gala, an all-American concert held Saturday night at Meyerhoff Hall. There was a good deal of novelty on the short program (in between dinner and dessert offered for premium gala-goers in a tent set up outside)
