Daylight saving time will end this weekend, when clocks "fall back" one hour to standard time, starting at 2 a.m. Sunday. That means an extra hour of sleep for many. Maryland State Fire Marshal William Barnard is recommending that residents change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors at the same time that they turn back their clocks. Barnard says that having working fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors can double a family's chances of surviving a home fire or instance of unsafe carbon monoxide levels.

I watched the first presidential debate with a group of wine-sipping West Coast Obama fans who were stunned by the way Mitt Romney dominated the stage. Over the 90 minutes of the debate, Mr. Romney submerged the right-wing image he had adopted in the Republican primary race and came off as a reasonable, moderate technocrat who differs with President Obama only about the means to get to the ends they both seek. For his part, Mr. Obama was pleasant and professorial, as if he were merely engaged in a ponderous academic discussion, rather than a political grudge match with enormous consequences.

With the Grand Prix of Baltimore over, workers were taking down fences, removing safety barriers and opening streets Monday with the goal of restoring the flow of traffic through Downtown Baltimore in time for the Tuesday morning commute. By 5 a.m. Tuesday, Grand Prix of Baltimore General Manager Tim Mayer said, all major streets around the two-mile circuit would be open to traffic. Only Sharp Street, which connects Pratt and Conway streets through the Baltimore Convention Center, would still be closed, he said.

John D. Danko stops in mid-conversation to note the sound ringing through the house. The small brass bell chimes from behind the face of the grandfather clock in the foyer, perhaps the same sound people would have heard in their homes while waiting for word from the battlegrounds of the War of 1812. "Back in those days, this is what they heard," says Danko, after the clock has chimed nine times on the hour. Then there's only the tick-tick-tick of the seconds as two weights and a pendulum wrought in cast iron keep the time using technology that dates to the days of the Battle of North Point and Fort McHenry's defense of Baltimore harbor.

Katie Couric's visit last week to Baltimore's WMAR proved at least one thing: She is serious about making her new daytime talk show, “Katie,” a winner. She did not do such intense promotion in the summer of 2006 even when she was about to debut as anchor of the “CBS Evening News," one of the most prestigious -- or at least historic -- jobs in television. And that kind of commitment from her means the competition in one of the most hotly contested time periods in local TV is going to be even fiercer this fall when her syndicated show debuts.

With time growing short to call a special General Assembly session on gambling legislation, House Speaker Michael E. Busch plans to huddle with his leadership team Wednesday as top Democrats assess whether there are enough votes to justify calling lawmakers back to Annapolis. Interviews with leading legislators suggest that Busch faces an uphill climb in trying to build a majority to back a measure that would allow a casino in Prince George's County and open the state to table games such as poker and craps.

The Chicago Bears' Matt Forte and the Ravens' Ray Rice were linked as two Pro Bowl-caliber running backs given the franchise tag by their respective teams. But the Bears just made sure that Forte won't have to play the upcoming season with that tag. The Ravens have less than three hours to make sure that Rice can say the same thing. The Chicago Tribune  first reported today that Forte had agreed to a long-term extension with Forte, who has rushed for 4,233 yards and 21 touchdowns in four seasons with the Bears.

For the second game in a row, Loyola went to a strategy of holding the ball and killing the clock, and for the second game in a row, the top-seeded Greyhounds had trouble with carrying out the plan. Clinging to a 7-5 lead late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's NCAA tournament semifinal against No. 4 seed Notre Dame, Loyola employed the game plan it used in the last six minutes of a 10-9 decision over Denver in the quarterfinals on May 19. The Fighting Irish were able to pressure Loyola's ball carriers and create turnovers, but the offense was unable to convert those mistakes into goals.

After more than a year of being out of big league baseball while attempting to rise above concussion symptoms, second baseman Brian Roberts is back in the game. He started his rehab assignment Wednesday in Double-A Bowie. The clock now starts ticking. He has 20 days to be activated by the big league club, though the team can halt the clock if he suffers a relapse or another injury. Otherwise, they would have to waive him, and the Orioles won't do that with their most veteran player and $10 million man. So the next three weeks are going to be interesting.

John Cena put away Brock Lesnar at Sunday's Extreme Rules pay-per-view, but now he must fight the hired gun's boss himself next month. In the closing scene of Raw, General Manager John Laurinaitis threw Cena a curveball. Laurinaitis told Cena his opponent for Over the Limit would be announced at the end of the show. But while Lord Tensai and his henchman surrounded Cena, Laurinaitis clubbed Cena from behind and announced that he would face the WWE's top superstar at the pay-per-view himself.
