As a resident of Baltimore County, I am opposed to CZMP Issue 5-019 filed by JC Bar (CVS). The issue is one of public safety and continued quality of life in Carney. The proposed CVS location is on Harford Road only slightly south of the intersection of Harford and Joppa roads. Having vehicles, both northbound and southbound on Harford Road, enter and exit from CVS at this point so close to the failing intersection of Joppa and Harford roads will be very unsafe. What the failing intersection does not need is another large commercial enterprise to disrupt the traffic flow at this critical point on Harford Road.

Let's agree that whatever took place on the sideline between Derrick Mason and Joe Flacco on Sunday was not exactly Tyson vs. Holyfield at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Nobody swung at anybody. Nobody head-butted anybody. Nobody bit off a chunk of anyone's ear. But let's be clear about this, too: Mason can't be going off on his quarterback the way he did, either. OK, we don't have all the details of what transpired between the two in the second half of the Ravens' 37-13 win over the Carolina Panthers.

COLLEGE PARK - For much of Maryland's season, the goal very simply was to perform better than in the game before. Coach Mark Turgeon said victories should be byproducts of playing the game properly, and he discouraged talk of winning and losing among players and coaches. But as the Terps (15-10, 5-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) prepared for Saturday's game at No. 22 Virginia (19-6, 6-5), the calculation had shifted. Turgeon is talking more now about the bottom line as the team makes a final push to qualify for postseason play.

The British Broadcasting Corporation wants to get rid of its cliches with a new style book aimed at banning tired phrases. At The Baltimore Sun, getting rid of just one cliche, such as "the bottom line," might be as tough as cleaning up the Chesapeake.Since 1990, Sun and Evening Sun writers, letter and other writers and subjects used the accountants' phrase, "bottom line" (the point of something) 2,094 times. In a July 1993 sampling of 50 examples, Sun story or headline writers used the phrase 16 times; others or people quoted were guilty the other 34 times.

Eli Jacobs says he is considering selling the Orioles because he no longer has enough time to read two or three books a week. He didn't mention the $25 million profit his group stands to make in less than three years of ownership. It probably has crossed his mind.He says he is thinking about getting out because owning a team is a venture too public and time-consuming. He didn't mention that the upcoming free agencies of Cal Ripken, Glenn Davis, Ben McDonald and Gregg Olson could cost many millions, taking a big whack out of that profit.
