With the newly opened Horseshoe Casino Baltimore chipping in nearly $1 million a day, revenues from Maryland casinos reached a new monthly record in August, topping $80 million for the first time. The Horseshoe, which opened Aug. 26, generated $5.7 million, or more from its slots and table games in its first six days than the $4.2 million reported for the whole month at the significantly smaller Rocky Gap Casino Resort — and nearly as much as the Casino at Ocean Downs' $5.9 million.

"The Book of Mormon" may not be to everyone's taste (I've had pretty spirited correspondence from some folks who took offense), but the mega-musical had no trouble drawing crowds on its first visit to Baltimore. The result turned out to be historic. "Mormon," which features a story and lyrics by Robert Lopez and "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, just broke the house record at the Hippodrome, grossing $1,675,748.25 for the week ending March 9. Breaking house records is something of a religion for this show.

Shannon Propst finished her junior year just eight assists shy of Oregon's career record, so it was all but certain she would break it a few games into this season. The Fallston graduate didn't wait that long. With nine assists in Monday's season opener, she not only broke the career record, she also broke the Ducks' single-game assist record. Propst said she had no idea that she had so many assists until she got on the bus after the Ducks beat Stetson 20-3. One one of her teammates told her about the records.

Clayton Lambert had not given much thought over the years about his near-state-record fish - until his 12-year-old son, Colton, caught a fish that qualified for one. More than three decades after the elder Lambert's crappie came up 4 ounces short of a Maryland record, his son's 11-pound, 6-ounce largemouth bass broke Rodney Cockrell's nearly 30-year-old record of 11 pounds, 2 ounces. Colton Lambert, a seventh-grader from Huntingtown in Calvert County, was among four anglers honored for their state records at last Saturday's Maryland Fishing Challenge in Annapolis.

Preliminary temperature readings show the mercury bottomed out at 53 degrees Friday morning at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, a level that, if confirmed, would be Baltimore's coldest ever for Aug. 16 and chilliest for August since 2004. The National Weather Service said it's too early to call it a record for sure -- the day's data won't be checked for accuracy until 1 a.m. Saturday, and sometimes false readings can be discovered, said weather service meteorologist Kevin Witt.

No matter how the Denver Outlaws fare in the playoffs later this month, there's no arguing that they just wrapped up a regular season unmatched in Major League Lacrosse history. With an 18-12 win over the host Hamilton Nationals on Saturday, the Outlaws (14-0) capped the first undefeated season in the league's 13 years. The day also was historic for goalie Jesse Schwartzman (Pikesville, Johns Hopkins), who broke a league goals-against average record that he'd set in 2009, lowering the mark from 9.87 to 9.67.

The sirens blared and lights danced as a line of fire trucks rolled up a brief stretch of Interstate 83 before taking Mount Carmel Road on the way to Hereford High School. School buses and cars followed close behind to form a lengthy caravan that made a ruckus. Horns honked, arms flailed out bus windows, and there was hooting and hollering and ear-to-ear grins. It may have stirred the tiny town of Parkton, but there was no need for alarm. On that night last May, the Hereford boys lacrosse team won yet another state championship.
