Editorial from The Aegis | February 11, 2014
When the leadership of a school system makes a decision about whether to cancel classes because of bad weather, there will be criticism. Another truism of making such decisions is that mistakes will be made, resulting in even harsher criticism. Given these realities, those making the decisions should always be prepared to make their mistakes on the side of safety. Over the past several years in Harford County, the practice has been to err on the side caution, sometimes resulting in canceling schools on days when the weather ends up not posing a hazard.

Fifty years ago Friday, Orioles farmhand Bobby Floyd sat in a dugout, wondering why umpires were huddled grimly at home plate in the fifth inning of a Florida Instructional League game. Quickly, word spread. President John F. Kennedy was dead. In unison, it seemed, players and fans let out a collective gasp. "It was like all the air had been sucked out of the ballpark," Floyd said. Game over. The Baby Birds, as they were called, retreated to their clubhouse - budding stars like Paul Blair, Mark Belanger, Curt Blefary and Andy Etchebarren.

If you're looking for a 1998 calendar featuring Kate Moss or her emaciated fashion pals, steer clear of the calendar being created by Gail Leonard."There are enough calendars with skinny women," says Leonard, 41. She is wearing a slinky, black, off-the-shoulder dress with strands of gold-colored sequins. "I didn't want skinny women in my calendar."Late last month, Leonard sent a handful of Baltimore businesses and organizations a fax advertising for full-figured black women to pose for a black history calendar.

Counting the fire engines, cars, bikes, tractors, lawn mowers, horses, roller-skaters and 100-piece marching band, the participants in Dayton's parade yesterday outnumbered the watchers. But no one seemed to mind. Parading - and throwing candy to the small but appreciative audience - was reward enough. This was Dayton's day in the sun, an annual parade and picnic that brings out both the old-timers in this western Howard County town of 2,000, once an enclave of farmers, and the newcomers living in subdivisions.

Every so often, Mark Pellington can see sparks in his father's eyes, the sparks that made Bill Pellington "The Iron Horse," the defensive captain of the 1958 world champion Baltimore Colts, not to mention a devoted husband and father.But more often these days, what Mark sees in the eyes of his dad is a fog of confusion, a haze brought on by Alzheimer's disease, the degenerative ailment that has robbed Bill Pellington of his memories, and his son of the father he once knew."There was a great sense of sadness and anger, anger at my loss," said Mark Pellington.

CARSON, Wash. -- Go ahead. Make a monkey out of Sasquatch, say folks in this tiny town in the heart of Bigfoot country. That won't stop them from throwing their annual bash for the big galoot.Or from believing -- or at least wanting to believe -- that Sasquatch, the man-beast also known as Bigfoot, still exists somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. True believers haven't missed a beat since two of their flock broke ranks last month to debunk the most famous home movie since the Zapruder film.

Add another visiting celeb to the "no attitude" list. It seems country star Lee Ann Womack has such a great relationship with Baltimore radio station WPOC that she performed at a local charity event -- Harbor Daze -- last weekend for free. That's quite a pay cut. And that's not all. Putting Lee Ann in the "above-and-beyond-nice" category, she apparently was fighting a bug at the time. WPOC's Annie Sandor says she noticed Lee Ann looking a little green behind the gills. The star acknowledged to Annie that she wasn't feeling well but made no mention of it to others.

Parents of rising high school seniors with college aspirations have likely spent a good chunk of time this year experiencing that peculiar educational tradition known as the "college visit. " Even those who have already criss-crossed the country catering to the whims of a child enthralled with the prospect of attending school on the West Coast or maybe in the Northeast or perhaps Florida, or all three simultaneously, if that were only possible, may have miles to go yet before they sleep.

For you, today's Election Day. For Gavin St. Ours, a Web designer and video producer who lives in the city's Mount Vernon, and tens of thousands like him across the country, it's also Day 4 of NaNoWriMo. And possibly NaPoPoMo. And NaBloPoMo. And NaKniSweMo. And probably some other 'Mo we're unaware of. It sounds like gibberish, but they're abbreviations for National Novel Writing Month. And National Podcast Posting Month. And National Blog Posting Month. And National Knit a Sweater Month.

He is a child of the Depression, they of 9/11. He was part of the first freshman class at the newly built "Castle"; in their junior year, they would see it declared a historic landmark. At his home, Gershwin sheet music is propped up on the piano; at their senior farewell this week, they exited to the music of Aaliyah. And yet, tomorrow, when Herbert Matz takes the stage as their commencement speaker, the 76 years that separate their respective graduations will fade in the face of what unites them.

NFL owners, meeting in Atlanta, voted unanimously yesterday to opt out of the collective bargaining agreement they signed with the players union in 2006. This would mean that the NFL would conduct its business with no changes for 2008 and 2009. There would be substantial changes in 2010. And since the deal would end in 2011 instead of 2013, there would have to be a new contract to avoid the possibility of a work stoppage then. As usual with labor situations, the big picture is complex and the details infinitely more so, so let's try to sum it up. Why has this happened?

Miami-- --It is Super Bowl Media Day, which is the mother of all news conferences, and there is a guy wearing a hand puppet trying to interview Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy. Somewhere in the television hereafter, Kukla, Fran and Ollie are smiling. Pardon the obscure 1950s TV reference. It has been awhile since hand puppets were considered cutting-edge television, but everybody is looking for a way to stand out in the huge media horde that has descended on Dolphin Stadium on the third official day of Super Bowl Week.

RAVENS REPORT HOW THE GAME WAS LOST The Ravens were uncharacteristically bad on defense. The NFL's second-ranked defense gave up a season-high 414 yards and two touchdowns. The Ravens allowed Carolina to convert seven of 15 third downs (47 percent) after the Panthers were 0-for-11 last week against the Cleveland Browns. TURNING POINT One play after the Ravens cut the deficit to 16-14 on Mark Clayton's 62-yard touchdown catch, the Panthers struck back with a 72-yard pass from Jake Delhomme to Steve Smith.

TYRE, Lebanon -- The Israeli orders spread at dawn yesterday, by radio, leaflet and menacing cell-phone text messages: All civilians south of the Litani River should clear out immediately or risk death. Panicked by violence and the evacuation order, families piled into cars and poured north on one-lane dirt roads and bomb-pocked highways. Smoke boiled into the sky as bombs rumbled in the hills. Israeli jets flew overhead. As evacuating Lebanese sped past abandoned cars, they glimpsed corpses inside.
