Andrew Miller arrived in Baltimore Friday morning with a full beard. He had come from the Boston Red Sox, where the growth of facial hair is welcomed, and a few players in the Orioles clubhouse hoped he would remain untrimmed. But Miller, the Orioles' newly acquired left-handed reliever, caught word quickly that beards "were not expected here," he said. When he met with the media about three hours before Friday's first pitch he was, for the most part, clean-shaven. "I want to fit in," Miller said.

As I look back over my 12 years as chancellor of the University System of Maryland (USM), one of the developments in which I take the most pride has been the USM's genuine partnership with state leaders in Annapolis. Now that the primary is over and the election looms, I encourage candidates for office across Maryland, especially those running for governor, to commit themselves to upholding this partnership. It has served our students, the state and the citizens exceptionally well.

Here are answers from members of the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants to readers' tax questions. The Sun will publish answers through April 15.Q: My daughter was married July 10. Can I claim her as an exemption half the time or full time for 1993?A: Probably not. The IRS does not allow partial year deductions. The only way you can claim a married child as a dependent is if the child does not file a joint return and otherwise qualifies as a dependent. But, if your daughter and her husband do file a joint return but aren't required to (e.g.

HUNTING IS a way of life in my native state of Montana, where half of all men over the age of 18 hunt. But overall in the United States, only a few enjoy this sport. In 1989, for example, 7 percent of Americans bought hunting licenses. For many urban Americans, hunting seems as distant as the nation's frontier past.Because hunting is beyond the experience of many, hunters themselves have begun to feel like an endangered species. Urbanization has reduced wildlife habitat. Environmental regulations, which hunters mostly support, strictly limit hunting opportunities.

Whether or not the Orioles use two long relievers today will determine when right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is activated from the 15-day disabled list -- and on what day he'll make his first major league start since straining his groin. If right-hander Chris Tillman has a long outing this afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays, Gonzalez will be activated to start Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said during his pregame news conference today. Otherwise, Gonzalez could be reinstated sooner to be available out of the bullpen.

When the phrases “oblique strain” and “baseball player” are intertwined, it's usually cringe-worthy. Rarely is it ever good news. An oblique strain, depending on its severity, can sideline a player more than a month. It usually is a slam-dunk DL sentence.  Orioles first baseman Chris Davis left Friday's game with a left oblique strain. After the game he said he didn't believe it was too severe, that he was in some discomfort, but, “it doesn't feel so bad right now that I can't move or anything like that.” Regardless, the Orioles will add another position player from the minors Saturday (they optioned T.J. McFarland to Triple-A Norfolk after Friday's game to create a roster spot)

— An effort to lure the FBI to Maryland could have a profound payoff for the state's economy, but the benefits could take years to materialize and the eventual impact would hinge on the way local officials handle the project, several of the state's top economists say. Maryland's congressional delegation has been pressing for months to make Prince George's County the new home of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is currently headquartered in...

A "nor'easter" storm has the potential to bring 6 inches of snow or more Thursday across Central Maryland, but accumulations will depend on the storm's unpredictable path, forecasters said. The National Weather Service placed nearly all of Maryland under a winter storm watch Monday, with 5 inches of snow possible from Wednesday evening through Thursday evening. Forecasting models suggest cold northern air will converge with Gulf of Mexico moisture off the Carolinas on Wednesday, sending a potent storm system northeast up the East Coast.

Most people lose weight during the week and gain weight on the weekends, a new study finds. Yet, researchers say it's the weekday diets that are most important for maintaining a healthy weight. The researchers at Cornell University looked at people's diets over seven days and found rhythm of losing and gaining. But they also found that those who lose the most during the week are more likely to either lose weight or maintain weight over time. “Weight variations between weekdays and weekends should be considered normal instead of weight gain,” said Cornell University behavioral economist Brian Wansink in a statement.

It shouldn't come as a shock that the top three leading scorers for the Mount St. Mary's men's basketball team (4-9) are all seniors in the guard trio of Julian Norfleet, Rashad Whack and Sam Prescott. But the Mountaineers' hopes for success this season could center on the maturation of their freshmen and sophomores. Freshman forward Will Miller and freshman shooting guard Byron Ashe rank fourth and fifth in scoring with 6.5 and 6.0 point averages, respectively. Sophomores Taylor Danaher and Gregory Graves have replaced Kristijan Krajina in the starting lineup after the senior center tore an anterior cruciate ligament in his knee against Bucknell on Nov. 26. And freshman point guard Khalid Nwandu has moved into the starting lineup in the last four games.

I was calm, at first, when I saw that Facebook had locked me out of my account this week. I figured I would just need to change my password, or answer a security question, and the whole thing would be cleared up in a minute. Besides, how important was my Facebook account anyway? Then I read the screen more closely - Facebook wanted me to upload a copy of a government-issued identification, like a driver's license or passport, to prove that I was, in fact, myself. A panicky feeling clenched my chest as I fumbled in my purse.

Leaders of Maryland's transportation industry said Monday that the state's future depends on continued infrastructure investment, beyond the $4.4 billion already scheduled for highway and mass transit systems in the next six years. Such investment will be the deciding factor between "a future of mobility and one of stagnation" in an already congested but still-growing region, Donald Fry, president and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee, said at the group's annual transportation summit.
