What if braces were considered fashionable and could actually boost a patient's self-esteem? That was the question on the minds of the daughters of a Columbia pediatric dentist when they hit upon the idea of Bracket Ears - earrings made from oversized, surgical steel brackets that come with colorful bands to match with your braces. And further, what if a portion of the profits was tied to charitable contributions? “I never imagined I would be doing this,” says Dr. Casey Crafton of Crafton Dental, located off Old Columbia Road in Kings Contrivance.

I would like to respond to Ron Smith's column "Mideast burns, Japan suffers — Obama golfs" (Feb. 18). It managed to hit a lot of buttons with me. I question Mr. Smith's indignation over President Obama having "fun" — I wonder where his indignation was when his boy Bush bewailed the fact that Katrina had made it impossible for him to enjoy cocktails on Trent Lott's porch while people in New Orleans were dying because of Katrina....

My NCAA tournament brackets are in shambles. The South regional, in particular, looks like a vast Loser Wasteland. And no amount of Smithwicks (left over from St. Patrick's Day) can put a happy face on the horror that has been done there. Believe me, I've tried. Did I mention I had Georgetown going to the Final Four? I should probably mention that. And you know who knocked Georgetown out of the Big Dance, of course. Yes, the team that torched my dreams is none other than America's new darling, that scrappy bunch from the school no one's ever heard of, Florida Gulf Coast University, coached by Andy Enfield, who no one had ever heard of after he played for Johns Hopkins years ago. Thanks, Eagles.

Seven local boys basketball teams have earned top seeds in their respective regions for the MPSSAA postseason tournaments, which begin Friday. No. 1 Milford Mill, No. 4 Lake Clifton, No. 7 Dunbar, No. 9 Arundel,  No. 14 South Carroll, No. 15 Centennial and Western Tech are each top seeds and will receive byes in their brackets, which were released Sunday. One of the most notable developments is Patterson getting a No. 15 seed in Class 3A North. The Clippers, 15-6 and ranked No. 3 in The Sun's latest poll, did not earn one of the top four seeds in the region, which are determined by overall record.

Its very appearance can cause a sweat. Or outrageous bursts of non-work-related research. It can trigger spontaneous plagiarism from the desks of office mates. It is, of course, the NCAA tournament chart - the brackets - used to help basketball fans bet on the college games in office pools. When it shows up on printers and copiers, the symbolism is unmistakable: March Madness has arrived. But what gives the symbol its awesome power? Does the magic lie in its art or its function? "There are 64 teams - anything that can go from 64 to two is a marvel in how simple it is," said Cary Murnion, a partner at Honest, a New York design firm, who likened the chart to a hieroglyph for the basketball tournament.

The Boys & Girls Club of Westminster got some national pub last year when its NCAA tournament bracket made of sweet, sugary Peeps made the rounds online and on TV. This year, the kids of " Peeps Bracket " sent letters - with a Peep - to several top-ranked teams and asked them to email back a photo with them posing with it. They received several, including Villanova's shot of the Peep positioned inside its 2013 Battle 4 Atlantis tournament...

Antonio Harrell signed up to design and build competition robots at Dunbar High School because, he says, he "didn't have anything else to do. " Three years later, the 18-year-old senior has gotten so good at engineering robots, he's teaching Baltimore's business leaders how to use them. "He did a great job. Well, he did better than I expected he would do," Harrell said Sunday after Eliot Pearson, AOL's principal software engineer, finished operating a robot Harrell and two other Dunbar students built.

The 2014 NCAA men's lacrosse Championship Weekend at M&T Bank Stadium will have some competition right next door. The newly released Orioles 2014 schedule has home dates against the Cleveland Indians over Memorial Day weekend, as first noted by the Baltimore Business Journal. The Orioles and Indians meet at Camden Yards on May 22-25; the Division I lacrosse semifinals are set for May 24, the Division II and III finals for the 25th and the Division I championship on May 26. The stadiums share a parking lot, and schedule conflicts in the Baltimore area are nothing new. The Grand Prix of Baltimore has been canceled for 2014 and 2015 because of a Ohio State-Navy football game at M&T Bank Stadium and an American Legion convention over the next two Labor Day weekends, respectively, and the Ravens were forced to open this season in Denver because of a home Orioles game.

The Maryland men's basketball team begins a critical four-game stretch to end the regular season tonight at Georgia Tech. The Terps are sixth in the Atlantic Coast Conference at 7-7 and they have a 19-8 record overall, but they must make a statement in the next two weeks to prevent their NCAA tourney bubble from bursting. Costly losses to Virginia and Boston College have tarnished their tournament resume, scraping the luster off their win over second-ranked Duke at Comcast Center just 11 days ago. I spoke with a pair of bracketologists today who say the Terps face long odds at making the field of 68, but they still have hope for an at-large bid. “They are talented enough to be a tournament team,” ESPN's Joe Lunardi said in a phone interview this morning, singling out Alex Len and Dez Wells for praise in particular.

The Crabs Atlantic Stars of Maryland, the only East Coast team at the 12th annual Adrenaline Challenge last weekend in Del Mar, Calif., went undefeated to win their age bracket, capped by a last-minute win in the final.

Luke Shilling tied the game on an inside roll with 29 seconds to go. The Crabs won the ensuing faceoff, and coach Andy Shilling called a timeout.
