AEGIS STAFF REPORT | April 22, 2013
Beginning today (Monday, April 22) the Maryland State Highway Administration said it will temporarily close Loflin Road at Route 7 (Old Philadelphia Road) near Aberdeen to relocate a Harford County water line under Route 7, a project that will take several months. The road closure and water line work is expected to be completed in late summer, weather permitting, the SHA said in a news release.  A detour route will direct motorists to westbound Route 40 (Pulaski Highway).   For safety and to complete the construction work, crews may temporarily close a single lane of Route 7 or Route 40 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday.  There may be occasional lane closures on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.    Motorists with questions or concerns about the project may contact the SHA project field office in Aberdeen at 410-272-1805 or SHA's District 4 Office - Construction Division at 410-229-2420; toll free at 1-877-998-0367, or by e-mail: shadistrict4@sha.state.md.us .    While SHA and its transportation partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, drivers are reminded to stay alert and look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don't follow too closely.

Over months of investigating the proliferation of speed cameras in Maryland, many of The Baltimore Sun's attempts to get data and other information from government officials were met with delays, detours and dead ends. Howard County, for example, refused to provide the license tag numbers of the vehicles that its cameras have nailed for speeding. By contrast, Baltimore, Baltimore County and the State Highway Administration - which fall under the same public-records law that Howard does - all provided tag numbers, even if it took some prodding and multiple attempts to get the correct figures.

Julie Culley had retired from competitive running, finishing her career at Rutgers burned out and banged up as a fifth-year senior. She had started the next phase of her life, coaching the women's track team at Loyola College and assisting the men's and women's cross country teams. Then she bumped into American coach Matt Centrowitz at a meet and confusion set in. "He really brought me back to life as an athlete," Culley, now 31, recalled. "He asked me why I was coaching. He said, 'You're too young to be coaching full time.

Now is the time. Early fall is when the pleasures peak in Talbot and Dorchester counties. That's when these Eastern Shore towns stop being detours along the way to the shore and turn into full-fledged destinations. There are practical advantages to visiting St. Michaels, Easton and Cambridge after Labor Day. Hotel rates plunge, beach traffic is a nonissue and the kids are, as they say, back in school. There are even a few reasons to put off an Eastern Shore trip as late into fall as you can. Migrating wildfowl begin to arrive here in late October.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman's superb performance against the Mariners Wednesday afternoon earned him another start after the All-Star break. So why did the Orioles immediately option Tillman to Double-A Bowie following their 4-2 win over Seattle? The main reason is because the Orioles want Tillman to continue pitching throughout next week's break instead of taking 10 days off. So he will start for Bowie -- he last pitched for the Baysox in 2008 -- on Monday. He will then get in extra days of rest before being activated to pitch a week from Sunday -- the first day he's eligible to return -- against the Tigers.

What do you get with some marital conflict, product placement, joking around and weepy, back-slapping man hugs? "The Amazing Race"in Italy, obviously.   Hamartia I finally get to use the word hamartia in a recap to show off my knowledge of old terminology from Greek literature! Check that off my bucket list! It means fatal flaw, and it frequently points its hamartanein finger at pride.   Ralph and JJ, the Border Patrol Agents, are full of pride (or hubris, if we are still flinging fancy words around)
