With replacement officials continuing to work NFL games indefinitely, there is a theory that defensive players will take advantage by being more aggressive with opposing receivers to disrupt their timing with their quarterbacks. That may not be far-fetched, but Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said the coaches and receivers can't concern themselves with the holding and grabbing they can expect as they run their routes. “Defensive guys are allowed to jam you and even grab and hold you,” he said Thursday.

Bcheng Redskins' Paul cleared for contact, set to play Monday NFL: The NFL has cleared Washington Redskins tight end Niles Paul for contact, and Paul practiced fully Friday. The fourth-year veteran suffered a concussion in the Sept. 25 game against the New York Giants and is expected to play in Monday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Tight end Jordan Reed remained limited in practice with a hamstring strain he suffered in the first quarter of the season opener. His availability for Monday remains uncertain.

Ravens secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo saw the yellow flag fly into the air and immediately sought an explanation from an official nearby. Spagnuolo knew there was contact between cornerback Chykie Brown and a San Francisco 49ers wide receiver during a one-on-one drill early in Saturday's practice. What he didn't know was whether the penalty flag was for illegal contact, defensive holding or perhaps even offensive pass interference. Such uncertainty among players and coaches has been commonplace early in the preseason as teams struggle to adjust to the NFL's vow to make illegal contact and defensive holding a "point of emphasis" during the 2014 season.

I use disposable contacts that I change every day. Over the years, am I harming my eyes? Probably not, but you should have your eyes checked annually to make sure. There are all sorts of contact lenses on the market -- from rigid, gas-permeable lenses that are relatively stiff and that you change once a year, to soft, very flexible disposables that you change every day, every two weeks, once a month or once every three months. The Food and Drug Administration, which must approve contact lenses, believes all these devices are safe and effective if used according to manufacturers' instructions, a spokeswoman said.

Anne Arundel County officials have advised residents to avoid direct water contact in Lake Waterford in Pasadena after a sewage spill Friday night. The sewage overflow occurred at a privately owned pumping station at Pasadena Crossroads Shopping Center at Ritchie Highway and Jumpers Hole Road. Anyone who comes in contact with lake water should wash well with soap and warm water immediately, officials advised. Clothing should also be washed. It is generally OK to eat fish from a lake where an advisory has been issued, as long as the fish are handled properly (kept in a cool place, then cooked thoroughly)

It has been more than three years since American consumers received the right to get cheaper contact lenses, but word has been slow to spread. Since 2004 federal law has dictated that your eye doctor must automatically give you your prescription after he fits you for contact lenses. Doctors can't charge for it or make you sign a waiver. The point of the law, called the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act, is to break the domination of eye-care practitioners selling lenses. A similar rule for eyeglasses has existed since 1978.

As three lawyers for Maryland Live casino entered a federal courtroom Friday morning, it seemed that a list containing information on hundreds of high rollers was on the line, a trove they suspected had been taken by a former employee who had left for a competitor. But as the morning wore on, documents established that the lawyers' problem was considerably smaller. Helena Wong, a former host at Maryland Live, had emailed just 19 elite players. And Wong, who now works at Baltimore's Horseshoe casino, testified that she had gathered the names gradually in the course of her job and had not pulled off a grand heist before leaving.

The Aug. 10 workout at which Morgan State football player Marquese Meadow fell ill was a one-hour, non-contact session geared toward conditioning, a university spokesman said Wednesday. Meadow, a freshman on the Bears' football team, died Sunday of heat stroke after spending two weeks in the hospital. Morgan State spokesman Clint Coleman reiterated Wednesday that the school believes all proper procedures were followed by the coaching staff and athletic trainers. He said Meadow was attended to by a trainer after becoming disoriented toward the end of the Aug. 10 session, during which players were not in pads.

I agree with the sentiments noted in " Smart meter apathy" (Aug. 11). BGE showed up at my door the same week I received a notice saying they would be in my neighborhood. I didn't understand that I had to make an appointment if I didn't want them to shut off my electricity with no notice in the middle of my work day (I work from home). I refused the service. I never heard from them again. I have enough going on in my life that it did not make it to my calendar to schedule an appointment.

As Maryland considers options for cutting climate-warming emissions from existing power plants, the good news is we're already ahead of most other states in meeting new targets proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But let's not rest on our laurels. Thanks to energy efficiency programs being developed in the coming months, we can deliver energy savings to more Marylanders, benefiting all our families and communities. Now is the time to contact Gov. Martin O'Malley to remind him how important it is to ramp up work by our utilities and state agencies to deliver energy efficiency, which reduces the need to generate electricity with fuels that create the carbon pollution that harms our health and planet.

The smart meter conspiracy theorists are no doubt buoyed by the news that BGE has been unable to secure appointments to replace the old, analog meters in the homes of some 350,000 customers. But there is no reason to think this reflects some groundswell of opposition to the new technology; on the contrary, it is a clear outlier when it comes to other smart meter installation projects across the nation and even within Maryland. The smart meter conversions for Pepco and Delmarva, for example, are 99 percent complete with opt-out rates of well less than 1 percent.

WHOM TO call with which problem on which road accounts for a good 10 percent of the e-mails and calls I receive. That our local roads are handled by different government agencies only complicates things. Depending on the problem and where you've found it, you might have to call the State Highway Administration, the county Department of Public Works' Traffic Engineering Division or Bureau of Highways, Howard County Animal Control or Baltimore Gas and Electric. Complicated enough for you?

Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson says officers in his department should not have asked to meet with two Dundalk activists after they testified at a County Council work session in Towson this month. The Dundalk residents — a community association president and a former state lawmaker — have said it felt like police intimidation when officers met them at a local library to go over rules for public meetings after they had testified against county plans to redevelop the North Point Government Center.

A sewage overflow estimated at 50,000 gallons was released into Miller Run in west Catonsville, and officials have advised people avoid contact with the waste water. Baltimore County's public works department responded to the sanitary sewer overflow Monday morning. A resident discovered the sewage, which overflowed from a manhole in a right-of-way south of Baltimore National Pike and north of Quilting Bee Road. The overflow was undetected for about seven days; after cleaning roots obstructing the line, the department stopped the overflow at 10 a.m., officials said.
