I yelled at someone the other day. It doesn't happen often, maybe once every couple of years. You have to push the right buttons in proper sequence to set me off, but a state employee who works in the Maryland Board of Pharmacy office had my combination. I'll call the employee Wendy. (It just seems unhelpful bureaucrats shouldn't have names that contain more than two syllables.) My mission was simple. My wife is a pharmacist. She has a license in another state and wants to practice pharmacy in Maryland.

In less than two weeks, the Ravens' secondary will be tasked with covering the Cincinnati Bengals' multidimensional receiving corps, headlined by Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green. The Ravens are crossing their fingers that their top cornerbacks will be healthy enough to cover Green and wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Lardarius Webb hasn't practiced since July 25, when he first hurt his lower back. The Ravens are hopeful that he'll begin practicing by the end of this week, as he's made significant progress in his rehabilitation.

The problem: A pedestrian signal button in Mount Washington was knocked down and never replaced. The back story: Jon Merryman often takes matters into his own hands — including trash. The Catonsville resident said he spends the hours while his son swims at Meadowbrook Aquatic Center wandering around Mount Washington, picking up garbage that would otherwise end up in the Jones Falls. These travels recently became more treacherous. A pedestrian signal button post on the southwest corner of Falls Road and Kelly Avenue had been knocked down during the winter.

One of Center Stage Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah's bright ideas has evolved into a feature film that will be unveiled worldwide next week. The project began in 2012 when Kwei-Armah was looking for a way to celebrate his theater's 50 t h anniversary. He asked such nationally known playwrights as Christopher Durang, Neil LaBute and the Baltimore-born Anna Deavere Smith to answer the question, "What is my America?" and then turned their responses into three-minute films.

On opening night of the big, snazzy Maryland Live Casino, I took Forget-About It Money (money I was prepared to forget about) to something called the High Limit Room because I heard you could get a drink there without waiting long in line. A uniformed casino employee pointed me toward an attractive, middle-aged woman in a black dress. She was sitting in front of a $5 machine. The machine had just paid off $800. For someone who a moment earlier had won that kind of money after two bets, the woman seemed incredibly relaxed - or perhaps she was emotionally spent.

For whatever reason, some issues resonate louder with fans than people in the game. Expanded use of instant replay is one of those. While Jim Joyce's missed call costing Armando Galarraga a perfect game stirred cries for instant replay, there was little response from within the game. The internal apathy — or willingness to accept bad calls, if that's what it is — was similar to last fall, when general managers barely discussed replay after a postseason in which missed calls were a hot-button topic.

An article in the Nov. 25, 1911 edition of The Argus reported on the happy outcome for a small child in an uncomfortable situation. Flora , the 3-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Logan Pingree , while playing Sunday morning on the floor in the kitchen of her parents' home, on Winters avenue, found a small shoe button, which she placed in her ear, and, although Dr. Marshall B. West worked over the child for several hours...

"Too Slow," one of the more delicate songs on Those Darlins' new album, holds special significance for Jessi Zazu. "I wrote that when I first started dating my boyfriend," the 24-year-old singer said by phone from her home in Nashville last week. "It was just a rough time period, but that was really sweet. Whenever I play it, it reminds me of the beginning of my relationship. " It's a time for new beginnings for Those Darlins, the rock quartet that released its third record, "Blur the Line," last week and headlines the Metro Gallery on Friday.

With his team reeling from three straight losses and desperate to win every game possible over the final 2 ½ weeks of the regular season, Orioles manager Buck Showalter started unheralded backup catcher Steve Clevenger behind the plate instead of two-time All-Star and Gold Glove winner Matt Wieters in the opener of the three-game road series against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was one of those Buck-ball decisions that leaves fans scratching their heads, but the local kid made good and delivered a game-tying double in the seventh inning on Friday night at Rogers Centre to put the Orioles in position to collect that critical victory.

Toe-ing the line Uncovering history means research, but for this particular column it also involves a big toe. Past copies of county newspapers, from which information for this column are taken, are stored on hundreds of rolls of microfilm neatly labeled and stacked at the Howard County Historical Society. But the microfilm machine used to bring this information to life is a study in obsolescence. A couple of years ago there were still a few researchers who would try to extract history from this monster, but it became more and more stubborn in its old age. The chair in front of it was the machine was the site of much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Attendance at the NCAA men's lacrosse Championship Weekend has declined by almost half over the past six years, and the Intercollegiate Men's Lacrosse Coaches Association intends to do something about it. Calling the attendance nosedive a "disturbing trend," the association has announced that it has created a committee to evaluate the championships, specifically the attendance problem. "The IMLCA was formed to help build the game of lacrosse and monitor the integrity of the game, so it is with these founding principles that the IMLCA Board of Directors has determined that the Association would be proactive in addressing this disturbing trend," IMLCA Executive Director Phil Buttafuoco said in the release.

When it comes to history, Al Feldstein is an equal-opportunity collector. The Western Maryland resident has been making appearances at rallies and protests held by groups on both ends of the political spectrum for decades. When there, he makes sure to grab a poster, a picture or any other token of attendance he can find, and among his vast collection of items are some 15,000 buttons -- many of them related to the gay rights movement. Al was kind enough to share some of those buttons with Gay Matters.

Editor: There was a serious lack of monitoring at the Bel Air parking garage on Jan. 24, when I served my calling to be on the jury panel. It was one of the coldest days of this year. We were dismissed at noon and I headed to the parking garage and may car on the sixth floor. I got on the elevator alone, against my better judgment. After passing the fifth floor the elevator abruptly stopped with a jolt. My first thought was panic but I chose to access the situation and I realized there was an alarm button and a telephone button.

After tonight, we only have one night left of blind auditions left on NBC's "The Voice. " Can you believe it?! Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton have precious few spots left on their teams, and there's still so much talent to go around. Sylvia Yacoub, 19, of Michigan/Egypt, with Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)" Sylvia basically attacked this song, and handled it with power and mastery. She caught Christina's attention pretty quickly, and Cee Lo and Blake pushed their buttons soon after.
