Los Angeles -- Soap opera stars often complain they feel like the deprived stepchildren of their counterparts on evening sitcoms and dramas. The rivalry between daytime and prime-time shows is emphasized when it comes to handing out kudos.The television academy gives out Emmys in two separate ceremonies: one specifically saluting daytime programs and the other strictly honoring prime-time shows. For the past 17 years, theDaytime Emmy Awards have been shown during the day in late spring, while the 42-year-old Prime-time Emmy Awards have been presented in an evening broadcast in late summer, usually amid more fanfare and increased viewership.

Richard Howard told a collection of community leaders at Thursday's monthly Greater Towson Council of Community Associations meeting at the Pickersgill Retirement Community.

You might have missed it yesterday, amid the hum of fans and air conditioners. But yesterday's high temperature of 92 degrees at Baltimore-Washington International Airport ended a remarkable little streak of four straight days with identical daytime highs of 90. So maybe only weather geeks care. But the last time the airport has seen such a phenomenon was nearly eight years ago - an 83-degree stretch that ended Aug. 7, 1997. You can look it up. Steve Listemaa, of the National Weather Service's Sterling, Va. forecast office, found that four-day streaks have happened only 12 times since official record-keeping in Baltimore began in 1871.

Big Bird's beak is out of joint with the folks who produce the Daytime Emmy Awards telecast.Honchos at Children's Television Workshop, the company behind "Sesame Street," where the lovable Big Bird rules the roost, are angry because the program won't be featured on Friday's Daytime Emmys telecast, depriving the publicly funded show of a much needed prime-time forum.The flap is the latest controversy for the Daytime Emmys. Late last year, a group of top daytime stars threatened to boycott this year's event unless the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which administers the awards, revamped the balloting process and cooled the show's emphasis on the steamier side of the soaps.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | October 24, 2013
There is so much that criminals do that's reprehensible, it can seem silly to dwell on the minutiae that's merely galling. Yet the insult that's being heaped on too many Harford County residents to their injury of being robbed is maddening. It's not exactly new, but the relatively recent trend that's infuriating is the increase in the number of daytime burglaries. When Harford County's decent, hard-working people go off to their jobs to earn an honest living, criminals are breaking into their homes and stealing from them.

A medic unit that had rushed to the scene of the midday shooting in Belair-Edison sat idling in the street. With the dead man's body under a sheet, there was no one to transport. Word was spreading about 49-year-old Kelvin Moyd's being shot. Relatives came running down Pelham Avenue, visibly upset and too frantic to cry. Two women burst through crime scene tape. One was bear-hugged by a male officer, who had other officers come to his aid as he struggled to keep her back. Then a man came down the street and a group of people swarmed him before he could confront an officer.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Sunday he believed his team's toughest game of their six-game road trip would be Monday's series opener in Toronto. Monday's 1 p.m. game will be the team's third straight afternoon game - a rarity. And it's also unheard of  that you come into a new city and play the first game of the series during the day. Sometime uncommon can lead to uncomfortable. But truly the test is replacing the atmosphere and excitement of this weekend's three games at Yankee Stadium with the antisceptic north-of-the-border feel of the Rogers Center.

Charged with being all down-to-earth and accessible, the first thing doctors John Martin and Briana Walton did was lose the white coats. Then they got down to business. "I'm really very surprised that so many people came out," said a smiling Martin. "Absolutely," nodded a smiling Walton. And thus it went Tuesday evening at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, as the hospital unveiled its monthly "DocsTalk" gatherings. Determined to make these informal health-information sessions as entertaining and jargon-free as possible, the hospital has come up with an approach that's equal parts "Today Show" and "Dr. Oz," but without the TV cameras.

WBAL-TV likes what it sees from the early returns on "Ellen" as its replacement at 4 p.m. for "Oprah. " Monday's premiere opened 64 percent higher than the premiere of the last season on "Oprah" in September 2010. Perhaps, most impressive is that "Ellen" was up 43 percent over Oprah in women 25 to 54 years of age, the kind of demographic the station can sell some ads on. The number of total viewers for "Ellen" was impressive. WBAL had 59,153 viewers, which almost doubled its nearest competitor, WBFF with 30,195.

Anderson's Cooper's syndicated daytime talk show opened strong Monday with the CNN host interviewing family and friends of singer Amy Winehose who died in July. He got the first interview with Mitch and Janis Winehouse, the singer's father and mother, and even made a little news with what they said -- that their daughter died of a siezure brought on by trying to detox from alcohol, not from a drug overdose. "She'd been clean for about three years," Mitch Winehouse said of his daughter's drug history.
