The Maryland and Notre Dame men's lacrosse teams entered the season having met five times in their histories. On Saturday, they will face each other for the third time in just over a month. The Terps (13-3), who are the seventh seed in the NCAA tournament, won the first meeting, 12-8, on April 19. But six days later, the Fighting Irish (11-5), the sixth seed, returned the favor with a 6-5 decision in an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinal that launched the team to its first tournament championship.

Randy Myers might technically be in the business of selling books, but he says he doesn't fret the impact the Internet or e-readers is having on the business, recently opening his second Collector's Corner comic book shop in February in Harford County. “People want to hold [comics] in their hand,” Myers said. “It's the tactile nature of the comic book that gives it more of a chance at surviving the digital age. It's not just the words, but it's the illustrations.” The shop prides itself on its selection of popular titles, such as the widely known series-turned-hit-TV-show “The Walking Dead,” the classic DC and Marvel Comics brands and small stapled comics from obscure indie brands such as Microcosm Publishing.

EVERY writer can name a person whose influence, perhaps unrecognized at first, resonates through the years. One of those persons for me was Carl Bode, a retired University of Maryland professor who died last month at 81.In my night stand lies a battered paperback copy of "The Portable Thoreau," edited by Dr. Bode. The book provides a comforting escape when insomnia strikes, and frequently goes into a bag on vacations. Henry David Thoreau, who loved to go roving, makes a good traveling companion.

FRANCONIA, N.H.-- --Bode Miller isn't this town's most famous resident. He isn't even the first Olympian from here to make the cover of a major sports magazine. His favorite sandwich at a nearby cafe isn't named for him. As a matter of fact, except for the banner above Kelley's Food Town as you swing off the interstate and onto Main Street, you might not suspect that Bode Miller calls this pretty speck of granite and deep-green trees home. And that suits everyone fine. "People give him a break when he comes here," says Steve Heath, whose family has owned the red-roofed Franconia Village Store for a half century.

I recently emailed Sen. Rand Paul to voice my opposition to his castigation of the U.S. intelligence community, and the National Security Agency in particular. I think his criticism of the agency could have a deleterious effect on the tens of thousands of dedicated patriots who work so very hard every day to protect the U.S. and defend its principles. I also stated that he likely would not get my vote, and I was eager to see whether he or his staff would even respond. Well, within a few days I received a response - not a specific response to my email, but an electronic copy of his newsletter.

Those who promote the right to carry around a handgun in public were no doubt disappointed by the U.S. Supreme Court's decision this week not to take up Maryland's handgun permit law. Certainly quite a few could be found sharing their rather disparaging views of the nation's highest court in colorful language on the Internet, including at baltimoresun.com. But what they should not be is surprised. While opponents of the Maryland law enjoyed a brief victory when a U.S. District Court judge found it violated the Second Amendment last year, that decision hinged on an overly broad view of District of Columbia V. Heller, the 2008 landmark Supreme Court case that spoke to the individual's right to own and bear firearms within the home.

Things didn't go as well as Liberty quarterback Austin Bode would have liked Saturday night when his Lions fell behind Westminster 35-0 and ended up losing 35-14. Bode completed 13 of 19 passes for 135 yards, but he didn't score a touchdown, while Owls quarterback Duke Etchison was 17-for-21 for 292 yards and three touchdowns. Bode, however, came back to get the best of his second showdown with Etchison on Sunday afternoon in the Ravens' High School Quarterback Challenge at halftime of the Ravens-Packers game at M&T Bank Stadium.

Liberty quarterback Austin Bode and Westminster's Duke Etchison look forward to showing 70,000 people that they can do more than throw a long pass when Sunday's Ravens' high school Quarterback Challenge takes on a new look. At halftime of the Ravens-Packers game at M&T Bank Stadium, the Carroll County quarterbacks will be tested for accuracy more than distance. They will aim for drop-in nets set at the 15-yard line, the 30 and the 45. Bode and Etchison get three tosses each and they can throw into any net they'd like.

Even as the Senate takes up the issue of immigration reform this week, Republicans are increasingly giving indications that the effort isn't likely to go very far. First, it was Sen. Marco Rubio's dance around the issue - repeatedly speaking out against the very bill he helped craft - and then it was the defection of another key Latino GOP member, Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho, who removed himself from the bipartisan group that was writing the House's version...

At an age when many workers are thinking about winding down their careers, Victoria Baldassano of Silver Spring says she can't afford to give retirement a thought. The part-time English professor at Montgomery College said her income has been too low for too long to save for retirement, and she's carrying about $40,000 in credit card debt racked up to pay living expenses. "It's an awkward situation to be in at 61," said Baldassano, who said she thinks more about day-to-day bills than retirement.

For awhile there, we were worried the county would end up with an embarrassing shortage of candidates in this year's school board race. Silly us. Instead of an embarrassing shortage, the field of candidates offers an embarrassment of riches. When the deadline passed last week, 15 candidates had filed to run for the three open school board seats this year, including the three incumbents. That's four more than ran in the last board election two years ago, when four seats were open, and it suggests an interest in this contest that is exactly what the board, and the voters, deserve.

The decision of Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts to retire next year after 32 years in the House is a blow to the Democratic Party, to the cause of liberal politics and to the effort bring public responsibility to Wall Street. It's also a setback to candor, wit and the fading belief on Capitol Hill that sharp ideological and policy differences can be overcome by compromise. Mr. Frank's strength has been not only his acid tongue and in-your-face style, but also his long-held conviction that Ronald Reagan was wrong in his famous dictum that "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.
