Recently I received my tax bill from Baltimore County and was surprised to see that my taxes went down – or did they? The total tax bill decreased by $675 because of lower assessments, yet my amount due increased by $161 over last year's amount. How could that be, I wondered, until I compared last year's bill with my current bill. The Homestead Tax Credit, which is calculated on assessment, was $858 higher last year than this year and, coupled with the increased water distribution charge and the increased sewer service, my amount due increased.

When it comes to thinking about people with Down syndrome, Katie Hudson wants the world to take a cue from her 6-year-old daughter, Maddie. "She always says, 'We're all a little different, and that's what makes us the same,'" Hudson said. "She gets it. " That's why Maddie will be walking in honor of her brother, Logan -- and more than 400 others will make strides for inclusion and awareness for people with Down syndrome -- at the First Annual Baltimore Buddy Walk on Nov. 2 at Padonia Park Club in Cockeysville.

Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen, who will get Monday's Game 3 start, said through an interpreter that he's not considering the importance of the game or where it might rank in his career. “For me, I want to keep it simple. It doesn't matter to me whether we're ahead or behind,” said Chen, who hasn't pitched since allowing five runs in 3 2/3 innings on Oct. 3 in Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Tigers. “My job is to go out and pitch a good game. It doesn't change whether it's 0-2 or 2-0.” There are two things in Chen's favor heading into Monday night.

The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

All Orioles manager Buck Showalter had to do was watch the Kansas City Royals' comeback win over the Oakland Athletics in the American League wild-card game last week to see how dangerous his team's AL Championship Series opponent can be on the base paths. The Royals erased a four-run, sixth-inning deficit by running circles around the Athletics, stealing a postseason-record seven bases in the game on their way to a 9-8 win in 12 innings. They've been successful on 12 of 13 stolen-base attempts in the postseason heading into the ALCS.

INDIANAPOLIS -- It wasn't long before Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck discovered the location of Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb . Once Luck found Webb, he began regularly peppering the veteran cornerback with a series of short-to-intermediate passes to his receivers. Webb allowed no touchdown passes or deep completions, but Luck completed several passes on him for first downs during the Colts' 20-13 win on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. That included the bulk of wide receiver Reggie Wayne 's seven catches for 77 yards along with a 16-yard completion to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks in the fourth quarter two plays before Luck rushed for a 13-yard touchdown.

"I'm feeling pretty pumped right now," said Liberty quarterback Austin Bode, who threw for two touchdowns in the win. "I thought this was a great battle throughout the entire game.

Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop listening to the Orioles on the radio on the front porch. Grandpa keeping score with pencil and paper. The yells of the fans floating over from Memorial Stadium. Chuck Thompson saying, "Ain't the beer cold. " Kids falling asleep on the ride home from the game. For many Baltimoreans, the story of the Orioles is the story of their family. It's a way for fathers and sons to talk, for mothers and daughters to connect, for grandparents to pass down traditions. Through the dark years of losing seasons, these families kept the Orioles magic alive.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday praised Joe Flacco's decision-making, especially his ability to deliver the ball quickly when under pressure on third down, as one of the things that contributed to one of the quarterback's better games in recent memory. Flacco threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns with a quarterback rating of 137.4 in the Ravens' 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, with a good chunk of that production coming on third down. “He made plays, and especially third down-and-long plays when he had pressure coming at him,” Harbaugh said.

An early goal by No. 4 Loyola Blakefield's Gavin Barger put top-ranked McDonogh in the unfamiliar position of playing from behind for the first time this season. The Eagles responded by dominating possession and then scoring a goal in each half for a 2-1 victory in a key Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game. Nicolas Brown had a goal and an assist for McDonogh, which has been scored on just three times in nine games this season. "We talked all year how there was going to be difficult situations in this league this year," Eagles coach Brandon Quaranta said.
