Fully vested into his 10th year in the NFL, Ed Reed is still waiting for his first Super Bowl title. But the Ravens free safety isn't concerning himself about whether an 11th season is on the horizon. “I'm taking this one game at a time, taking this in stride,” he said Thursday. “The only thing I'm worrying about right now is this game, this year.” Reduced productivity and injuries have added more fire to the speculation that Reed's decision could depend on the team's results in the postseason.

Jimmy Patsos was in his first season at Loyola when Pat Kennedy, then entering his second year at Towson and coming off a 5-24 season, proclaimed the Tigers to be Baltimore's college basketball team. Other local coaches might have chuckled at Kennedy's remark, but Patsos, raised near the chips on the shoulders of Gary Williams, took it as a personal challenge. "The last I looked," Patsos said at the time, " we're in Baltimore. " But deep down, Patsos knew that Loyola could have been on Mars when it came to Baltimore players.

Whether it was on my "rural tour" of states throughout the country or at workshops with the Department of Justice to discuss competition in agriculture, time and again, livestock and poultry producers have emphasized the need for a fair and competitive industry and workable, common-sense rules to address bad actors. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently finalized a rule to implement the 2008 Farm Bill to help remedy some of these concerns. In the last 30 years, the livestock and poultry marketplace has not only become more concentrated but also more vertically integrated.

There are times when coach Mark Turgeon is a portrait of anguish on the Maryland sideline. He'll stamp his feet. He'll crouch in front of the bench and lower his head between his legs. He'll gaze up at the rafters, as if searching for inspiration. Fans might imagine that Turgeon's suffering is directly tied to losing games, but it's more complicated than that. Strange as may seem, Turgeon — the ultra-competitive former Kansas point guard who once said, "I'd fight anybody that got in my way" — says winning should not be dominating his thoughts, nor those of his young, depth-challenged team.

A statistician for the U.S. Census Bureau and a union steward for the American Federation of Government Employees, Silberstein said the pitched battle in Washington over whether to raise the nation's $14.3 trillion debt ceiling has — for the second time this year — put federal workers in Maryland on edge about whether they'll still have a...
