TEN YEARS ago, on the 50th anniversary of D-Day, Augustino "Bud" Paolino finally talked about his bloody war. He was dropped into Normandy aboard a flying coffin the night before the big invasion. He saw brutal action in France. He was wounded in Holland. He was wounded and lay bleeding in the snow at the Battle of the Bulge, with nothing but a bottle of cognac to drink. He was one of the first Americans to claw their way into Germany. But the story that choked him up was his homecoming.

DETROIT - Since the moment right-hander Bud Norris joined the Orioles in a trade last July, he has talked about pitching in the playoffs. The chatty 29-year-old finally received the chance Sunday on a blistery afternoon at Comerica Park against the celebrated Detroit Tigers offense. He seized it, throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory, catapulting the Orioles into a second postseason round - the first time they've reached the American League Championship Series since 1997.

Beth Ansell and Bud Hooven work on the open-heart surgery team at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, and doing so brought their own hearts together as friends and family saw at their Sept. 9 wedding. That afternoon at Overhills Mansion in Catonsville, the wedding began with the bride's arrival in a horse-drawn carriage. Her son, Ryder, 14, wearing a tuxedo with tails and a top hat, walked her down the aisle. There Bud waited with his daughter, Dyani Ratchford, 26. A lifelong friend of Beth's was the maid of honor, and her two sisters were bridesmaids.

DETROIT - Right-hander Bud Norris is now scheduled to be the Orioles' Game 3 starter on Sunday at Comerica Park.  Even though the Orioles had never officially announced a Game 3 starter, right-hander Miguel Gonzalez had been expected to pitch that game. Showalter left open wiggle room to tweak his ALDS rotation, and both pitchers were available to pitch in relief for Games 1 and 2. But Showater said that Gonzalez would have only been used in relief in case of an emergency. In the postseason, the next day's scheduled pitcher usually has a news conference with the media.

It is always about Bud. It was always about Bud. And it will always be about Bud. Good thing Bud is a dummy. And good thing he's such a happy dummy. Otherwise Bud's wistful poker face, far-away eyes and stiff demeanor would try the patience of Job and anyone else who meets him. And Bud, a professional tourist who lives to sightsee, has met plenty of people, all of whom he so thoughtfully calls his new friends. The guy gets around -- he's in a perpetual state of summer vacation. But if you think Rehoboth, Whack-a-mole and boogie boarding are Bud's idea of vacation, think again.

Travels with Bud "It's funny how ideas are," muses 10-year-old Bud (not Buddy) Caldwell, an orphan growing up in 1930s Michigan. "In a lot of ways they're just like seeds. Both of them start real, real small and then ... before you can say Jack Robinson, they've gone and grown a lot bigger than you ever thought they could." And the idea germinating in Bud's mind is on its way to being out of control. Bud Caldwell, the main character in Christopher Paul Curtis' Newbery Award-winning book "Bud, Not Buddy," has never met his father, and his mother died when he was 6, relegating him to a life with greedy, abusive foster parents.

Colonial Players is helping make May a merry month with "Dearly Departed," a dark comedy that takes an irreverent look at the Southern rituals of burial. Soon after the play begins, the family patriarch, Bud Turpin, keels over dead while listening to his wife read a sermonizing letter from his sister Marguerite. The David Bottrell and Jessie Jones comedy centers on how the dysfunctional family gets him buried. Television actor-turned-playwright Bottrell has created a colorful assortment of characters hailing from trailer parks, prayer meetings, Alcoholics/Overeaters Anonymous and possible candidates for the Sally Jessie Raphael or Jerry Springer shows.

From USA's description of the "Second Time Around" episode of Political Animals : "With the clock ticking, Elaine sends Bud to diffuse the Iranian hostage situation. ... "               A sharper awareness of buried metaphors might help people sort out their confusion about homonyms. Free rein , letting go of control, for example, comes from horseback riding, understanding of which makes free reign nonsense. In the Political Animals episode, Elaine wants Bud to defuse the hostage situation, to render it harmless, as one defuses an explosive device.

NEW YORK - The Orioles go into Wednesday afternoon's game against the New York Yankees still trailing the Los Angeles Angels by 2 1/2 games  -- two games in the loss column - for the top record in the American League and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Orioles have five games left to play; the Angels have four. After the Orioles were held to one hit Monday, they responded with 17 hits in Tuesday's 5-4 win . Seeing leadoff hitter Nick Markakis get four hits, including a two-run homer - his first hits since returning from taking a pitch in the right shoulder - was a good sign for the Orioles.

The flowering branches of Mulan magnolia that grace the cover of Joan Lok's new book on Chinese brush painting appear more brightly colored than in her original work, probably to catch the eye of someone browsing in a bookstore, guesses the author. The Columbia resident says she is pleased with the quality of paper used for the book and the way the reproductions of her original flower paintings neatly fit with the detailed instructions on the soft-cover book's 128 pages. And the longtime federal employee is also happy her first how-to book will be available at bookshops and at a local chain of craft stores, tapping into a marketing niche.

The sweet smell of celebration -- an odorous combination of champagne and beer -- still lingered inside the home clubhouse of Camden Yards one day after the Orioles wrapped up the American League East title. Backed by a two-homer game from Steve Pearce, there was no hangover Wednesday night as the Orioles swept the second-place Toronto Blue Jays with a 6-1 victory in front of an announced 37,537 giving the club its 10th win in the last 11 games. “That's what we do,” Pearce said of returning strong the day after clinching the division.

The Orioles' final homestand of the regular season was supposed to be one of celebration. All signs pointed to the club's clinching its first American League East title since 1997 at Camden Yards, and Friday's split doubleheader against the New York Yankees gave the Orioles a chance to take two more sizable steps toward the postseason. Instead, their clubhouse was rocked Friday morning by the news that infielder Chris Davis, one of the team's most popular and recognizable players, had been handed a 25-game suspension for a second failed drug test for an amphetamine.

The final vote did not come easy, but Major League Baseball chief operating officer Robert D. Manfred finally achieved the necessary super-majority early Thursday night to become the the 10th commissioner of baseball. Manfred, who helped steer the sport through its most volatile labor period and has been a pivotal figure in the game's war on performance-enhancing drugs, was considered the heavy favorite to succeed Allan H. "Bud" Selig when the selection process entered its final stage during the two-day quarterly owners meeting at the Baltimore Hyatt Regency.

Representatives of Major League Baseball's 30 teams were back behind closed doors Thursday morning, first in a full meeting of all the owners and then in smaller discussion groups. They are expected to begin voting to select the next commissioner by early afternoon. The owners filtered into the main meeting room at about 8:30 a.m. and split up less than an hour later. Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos arrived early. MLB chief operating officer Rob Manfred, who is expected to be selected to replace retiring commissioner Bud Selig in January, arrived minutes before the meeting began.

When I trim my shrubs, they seem to go crazy, with new branches growing in all directions. My neighbor's shrubs never do that. They look natural and graceful. How come? Pruning stimulates new growth, but you can control the direction of the growth. When you prune, cut back to just above a leaf bud. The trick is to select a leaf bud that is pointing in whatever direction you want growth to go. A bud pointing away from the plant will go outward from the plant. A bud pointing to the shrub's interior or toward a neighboring branch will get entangled and run into other branches.

The timing of Bud Selig's pre-retirement news conference at Camden Yards Tuesday was delicious. It was 20 years to the day after major league players walked out and initiated the most disastrous labor showdown in baseball history. The great work stoppage of 1994-95 turned the fans against both the players and owners, and the owner with the biggest target on his back was the acting commissioner, who would eventually become the permanent commissioner and run Major League Baseball for a total of 22 years.
