It was Friday afternoon, too early for the muscle boats to be making their thunderous runs into Annapolis for the parade of egos along the city docks, perhaps too hot for many other boaters to be about, and the Chesapeake was almost flat.The surface of the bay was rippled by the northwest wind, and to the south, inside Thomas Point, the gulls could be seen searching for baitfish schooling at the surface.On several days earlier this summer, we have chased the birds, caught up with them and often found them diving on menhaden fleeing the attack of larger fish feeding from below.

When Towson welcomes Maine to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday night for the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both sides, the matchup will pit two of the three teams in last year's race for the conference title. But both programs are shades of what they were in 2013. The Tigers (2-2), who advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game, absorbed a stunning 31-27 loss to Central Connecticut State in their season opener and recently won back-to-back games ito climb back to .500.

NEW YORK -- Unless there is a quick turnaround, you can expect the middle of the Orioles' lineup to suffer the same affliction that's hit the top and bottom of the batting order.That's not a rash prediction, merely an acknowledgment of the domino effect that generally prevails. It's a fact of baseball life that the sick bat disease spreads faster than the common cold.Going into the opener of a three-game series against the Yankees here last night, Rafael Palmeiro, Harold Baines and Cal Ripken -- usually the Nos. 3-4-5 hitters -- had been the only consistent producers.

The Orioles didn't need a game-ending three-run homer Wednesday night to complete their second dramatic comeback victory in three games against the Chicago White Sox. A walk-off wild pitch in the early hours of Thursday morning was enough. Looking like they were about to lose the rubber match of their three-game series against the struggling White Sox, the Orioles rallied again for a 5-4 win Wednesday on a game-clinching wild pitch in the 12th inning of a 4-hour, 3-minute marathon that also included a 1-hour, 9-minute rain delay.

Everything seems to be falling into place for the Bottom-line Orioles, who may well be looking at a perfect off-season.Apparently, a few teams finally are showing interest in Mickey Tettleton, meaning he could be signed before Dec. 9. You know which way the Bottom-lines are rooting. Here's the worst-case scenario: On Dec. 9, the Orioles and Tettleton, who has no other offers, agree to go to arbitration, and the Orioles are stuck with him for something more than $1 million. Yes, they did offer him a one-year contract earlier, but that was because they knew he'd refuse it. So, now, what if he has a good season?

Whiskey Bottom Apartments, a 1,088-unit North Laurel complex that neighbors have described as a dilapidated eyesore and magnet for drug activity, finally is getting a face lift.After nearly two years of negotiations, Krupp Companies, the Boston-based mortgage and management firm that owns the complex, has received a $32 million loan from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to pay off old loans.The deal clears the way for Krupp to spend more than $3 million of its own money to repair the worst parts of the complex over the next 12 months, HUD and company officials said.

REDMOND, Wash. - Over lunch at his home near Seattle, former Chesapeake scientist Donald Heinle recalls one of the clearest views anyone ever had of the bay. It was windless, late fall or early winter 1963, and Heinle was an observer aboard a military transport that had just scrubbed its mission of dropping paratroopers at Virginia's Fort A. P. Hill. The pilot wanted some flight hours under his belt anyhow, so he flew up and down the length of the Chesapeake. He opened the plane's huge rear cargo door, and for four hours Heinle, a doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland, had an unparalleled view of the 2,500-square-mile estuary passing beneath him. He was not just seeing the bay that day. He was seeing the bottom of the bay - nearly all of it, everywhere but the narrow ship channel, ancient gorge of the Susquehanna River.

ASIAN MARKETS have rallied in recent months amid optimism that the economic crisis is easing. Last week South Korea announced that it was immediately repaying nearly $3 billion in emergency loans that kept it afloat last year, and China successfully raised $1 billion from foreign investors -- both indicators that investors take into account in deciding when a panic is over. But the U.S. ambassador to Singapore, Steven Green, also warned last week: "I see no fundamental change in Asia over the past 90 days to justify a sustained rally in the financial markets, much less to sustain economic growth in the years ahead."

Chris Davis' ninth-inning heroics Monday night masked the reality of just how bad the Orioles had been with runners in scoring position in that game. Their offense Tuesday wasn't afforded a similar bailout -- although it came close -- in a 4-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox before an announced 20,596 at Camden Yards. Despite having ample opportunities, the Orioles were hitless in seven at-bats with runners in scoring position Tuesday against White Sox left-handed starter Jose Quintana, and 1-for-9 overall.

Five innings had passed Sunday, and the South team still didn't have a hit. "It was kind of a joke in the dugout for a little bit how we were going to no-hit them," North pitcher Peter Solomon (Mount St. Joseph) said, with a grin. "It kept on going and going, but we eventually knew they would get a hit. " The South only had three hits, though, as the North's four pitchers led the way to a 4-2 win in the annual Brooks Robinson All-Star Game at Camden Yards. Jamal Wade (St. Paul's)

We still don't know all the circumstances surrounding the death of George V. King, a 19-year-old patient at Baltimore's Good Samaritan Hospital who went into a coma after being struck with an officer's Taser during a struggle with police and security staff May 6 and died a week later. But a report that one of the officers used his Taser five times to subdue the teen should raise serious questions about the appropriateness of the police use of force against an unarmed person who was heavily medicated.

Every day I wake up hopeful that there will be a truthful story on Benghazi. I pray every day for those four men and their families ( "Anatomy of a smear," May 14). Maybe the partisanship is the cover-up and the lies by former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and President Barack Obama days later when they knew that there was a terror attack and not a protest over a video. Ms. Clinton stood with the families promising prosecution of the filmmaker, knowing full well the truth.

And on the fourth day, the Orioles played. They won, watched it rain, and then they won again at nearly 1 a.m. with a walkoff homer by Matt Wieters in the 10th inning. After a scheduled day off Monday, followed by consecutive rainouts Tuesday and Wednesday - the first time they've been postponed consecutively since 2004, and the first time it has happened at Camden Yards since 2000 - the Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates finally played on what was supposed to be a mutual day off Thursday.

The Orioles don't necessarily need an explosive offensive effort every night if they can get the kind of solid starting pitching performance they received Saturday evening from Wei-Yin Chen. They just need to make sure they get some offense - especially at home. And especially now that they are going to have to get through the next few weeks without their most powerful hitter, first baseman Chris Davis, whose MRI of his left oblique Saturday showed a strain severe enough to warrant a 15-day disabled list stint.

From afar, the recent dramatics involving "House of Cards" and the size of the film tax credit it receives from Maryland have offered intrigue worthy of a Hollywood-produced political thriller like, oh, "House of Cards. " The producers threatened to leave, some legislators threatened to seize property, and when the dust cleared in Annapolis, the overall budget for the film tax credit stood at $3.5 million less than supporters wanted. Now that a deal has been struck for the popular Netflix TV series to return to shoot a third season in Maryland, the episode has raised an important question: Is spending so much money to attract or retain film or television productions worth the expense?

It would be easy enough to look at the way the Orioles have hung around the .500 mark through the first three weeks of the new season and wonder what might have been had Manny Machado been able to start the season on time and had J.J.Hardy not temporarily been reduced to a part-time player by back and hamstring problems. It also would be grossly unfair to the three players who have stepped into that breach. Jonathan Schoop might be getting more "seasoning" at Triple-A Norfolk now if Machado were playing every day at third base.
