The temptation, upon hearing the news that Maryland has fired the prime contractor building its troubled health insurance exchange, is to echo Rep. John Delaney's question: What took so long? Indeed, there have been signs for months - dating to even before the site's launch - that Noridian Healthcare Solutions was not up to the task. Switching from that firm to the Columbia-based company credited with fixing the federal site would seem like a no-brainer. But the truth is, this move is unlikely to be a panacea for Maryland's exchange, which still faces grave challenges in the weeks leading up to the end of open enrollment on March 31. Noridian was chosen as the exchange's lead contractor through a streamlined procurement process in early 2012.

A Maryland congressman and a candidate for governor - both Democrats - called on Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration Monday to publicly disclose the feasibility of abandoning the state's troubled health insurance exchange in favor of the better-performing federally run website. In a letter to state health officials, Rep. John Delaney noted that the federal site, despite its own problems, is signing up new patients for coverage faster than the Maryland Health Connection. Delaney asked health officials to publicly weigh the pros and cons of switching systems.

State officials announced Friday that they had fined an Eastern Shore farm couple $4,000 for improperly piling sewage sludge near a drainage ditch. But the Department of the Environment declared it had closed its investigation of the Hudson farm in Berlin with no further action because its inspectors could not say the farm was responsible for pollution found in the ditches draining its land. State inspectors had detected high levels of bacteria and nutrients in the ditches, which ultimately drain into the Pocomoke River.

Despite a painful left shoulder strain that makes it difficult for him to put on his clothes or move too quickly, wide receiver and kick returner David Reed said surgery is a last-ditch option that he's trying to avoid. “We're trying not to go for surgery because that would mean that I would be out longer,” he said prior to Wednesday's practice. “I'm trying to avoid that as much as possible. Hopfeully, it will just settle down after a week, and I'll be able to start strengthening it and everything.” Reed, whose left arm is in a sling, said he suffered the injury when an unidentified Tennessee Titans player delivered what Reed called “a cheap shot” during a kick return that was downed in the end zone in the fourth quarter.

Baltimore Police are doing away with use of the term “stop and frisk,” though officers will continue to be able to use the controversial search tactic. Baltimore's Deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said that national controversy over the New York Police Department's heavy use of the practice has led to a negative connotation from which police must distance themselves. “Anybody in any department that would keep that name, in my opinion, would be remiss,” Rodriguez said in a recent interview.

Efforts to avert the "fiscal cliff" offer great drama, but they won't solve Washington's budget woes and could precipitate another recession - or worse. The Budget Act of 2011 requires the president and Congress to agree on a nine-year, $1.2 trillion deficit reduction program, or annual defense and non-entitlement outlays will be automatically cut $107 billion on Jan. 1. At the same time, the Bush tax cuts, payroll tax reductions and other assorted programs expire. Altogether, $136 billion in annual spending reductions and $532 billion in additional taxes could trigger cataclysmic consequences for the economy.

As JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound took the stage for WTMD's First Thursday concert in Mount Vernon this past June, the rain came. But instead of allowing the dark clouds to damper the mood, lead singer Jayson Brooks saw an opportunity to make an impression. The magnetic frontman worked every inch of the stage, encouraging the crowd to clap along as he cleanly hit falsetto notes. When the rain stopped and a rainbow emerged, it almost felt as if Brooks had willed the clouds away.

Ditch almost didn't make it to the Republican National Convention - not because of Tropical Storm Isaac, but rather a missed deadline.

But after making up his mind, the 73-year-old Vietnam veteran learned that the deadline to put his name on the ballot was only hours away. There wasn't enough time.

Rock 'n' roll has never had a rulebook. Dylan Baldi, the 20-year-old Clevelander responsible for indie-rock buzz band Cloud Nothings, is the latest songwriter to take preconceived notions of his music and flip it on its head. Cloud Nothings began as a solo project in 2009, when Baldi was a teenager holed up in his parents' suburban basement. He recorded short bursts of crude-sounding punk songs, with just enough pop shine peaking out from under the reverb haze. Passed-along mp3s caught the attention of Carpark Records, also home to Baltimore's Dan Deacon.
