One of the principal security gates at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport is being closed in the mornings because of congestion around the adjacent Southwest Airlines ticketing counters, according to airport, airline and Transportation Security Administration officials. The shift started last week after officials found lines at the ticketing counters were blurring into lines at the security gate for Concourse B, particularly during busy morning hours. "It has to do with the safety and commingling of passengers," said TSA spokesman Ross Feinstein, who said entering and exiting through the gate had become a concern.

At Camden Yards on Friday, baseballs, the scent of sizzling hot dogs and a beautiful blue sky were in the air as the Orioles played the Minnesota Twins in their home opener. The smell of cigarette smoke was not, though, as the Maryland Stadium Authority began the enforcement of a smoking ban at the Camden Yards Sports and Entertainment Complex, which includes Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. Friday's game was the first since the smoking ban was put into effect. It prohibits smoking or carrying lit tobacco products - including cigarettes, cigars and pipes - within 25 feet of the stadium and the Warehouse, as well as in the outdoor space along Eutaw Street between gates A and H. Camden Yards was one of 10 Major League Baseball ballparks that had designated smoking areas within the ballpark last season, according to the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation.

Come tomorrow, when a federal law will require airlines to screen all checked luggage across the nation, those responsible for enforcement will be watching Baltimore-Washington International Airport. But what they will see there is anyone's guess. For weeks, airlines and airports have been preparing for tomorrow's deadline. Yesterday, Secretary of Transportation Norman Y. Mineta announced that his department chose a single concourse at BWI as the template for how luggage screening and other security measures will be handled at 429 airports.

THE FIRST TIME I met the bedazzlingest crab I ever saw was an afternoon in the mid-1980s, just off a flight into Baltimore-Washington International Airport. There in the main concourse, large as a small car, it balanced delicately on claw tips and the points of its swimmerets. The afternoon sun streamed warmly through the creature's jewel-like body, kindling olive and ivory, cerulean blue and jade and ruby-red. The stained-glass creation was an accurate crab, faithfully rendered down to the differing serrations of either pincer - the one adapted for slicing you up (for indeed, one felt like prey in its massive presence)

Concourse D at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport was closed for about an hour Friday afternoon while police investigated a suspicious item in lower level airline space on Concourse D. The focus was in an airline office space located just off the tarmac — not in public areas, said airport spokesman Jonathan Dean. As a precaution, travelers were cleared from the airline gate area on Concourse D nearest the location and the security checkpoint was closed for a few minutes shortly after 4 p.m. to alleviate congestion in the concourse.

For last year's 20th anniversary season at Camden Yards, the Orioles and its concessionaire, Delaware North Companies Sportservice, brought in local favorites Gino's Burgers and Chicken and Stuggy's to the yard along with Dempsey's Brew Pub and Restaurant , a year-round restaurant located in the stadium's warehouse, and the Roof Top Deck in centerfield, an instant fan favorite. And then the Orioles did what they did. This year is more about tweaking, upgrading and responding to requests from fans — including, the Orioles acknowledge, vegetarians who were still making do with french fries and pizza.

Officials at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport shut down two concourses for about an hour Monday morning, while investigators tried to determine the nature and source of an unusual odor. All checkpoints reopened by 10 a.m., after investigators removed what they believe was a can of pepper spray from a trash bin. Investigators discovered the item, which they are still processing, discarded in a trash can near the security check point at Concourse B. A passenger may have tossed the aerosol can before going through security, officials said.

The threat of lightning brought a public address directive to leave the ever-dampening seating bowl, and we had all taken refuge in the concourses of Oriole Park to wait out the rain delay. Red Sox fans were ubiquitous, each wearing some form of team logo, along with the smug visage that accompanies a $160 million payroll. For several years, as attendance has dwindled in the face of what now seems to be endless losing by the hometown team, the appearance of swarms of Boston fans has been as predictable as a periodic cicada infestation, as, in droves, they have taken over our lovely ballpark with a haughty air of entitlement.

Travelers passing through Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport will see extensive changes over the next two years as officials launch a $100 million renovation project that will transform the central section of the airport — including parts that date to its opening in 1950. The project, set to begin next year and to be finished in summer 2013, will allow passengers to move among concourses A, B and C without having to pass through security a second time. It will also replace a narrow checkpoint with a much larger one, which is expected to help relieve congestion during busy travel periods.
