Long before helicopters started falling on doctors and chemical spills were threatening to wipe out Chicago, ER was a show where two guys could disappear in a game of basketball and talk about life or about nothing at all. (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/toydept)

Hannah Sheats raises goats, makes clothes and bakes items with the 4-H to show at the Maryland State Fair. But the 11-year-old Parkton girl hasn't been to the State Fairgrounds in Timonium as much as she'd like since Baltimore County public schools opened Wednesday. Hannah, who attends Hereford Middle School, thinks she'd be learning more at the fair. "At school, in the first couple of weeks you don't do anything. It's kind of pointless," she said. "With 4-H, you always learn something new. You never stop.

Dr. Robert R. Hahn, former emergency room chief at what is now the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center in Easton, died Aug. 7 of coronary artery disease at William Hill Manor in Easton. He was 93. "Dr. Hahn was a wonderful, wonderful man. He was a great patient advocate and was an advocate for the nurses. He was an advocate for education. And he was always very open with the staff," said Dottie Waters, who worked with Dr. Hahn for more than 20 years and is now a relief nurse at the University of Maryland Shore Medical Center.

"ER" has to improve.zTC Anyone who has seen even a slice of an episode of "St. Elsewhere" knows how good medical dramas can be. Let's be kind and not compare "ER," which will premiere at 9 tonight on WBAL (Channel 11), to "St. Elsewhere" just yet.Based on the fact that Michael ("Jurassic Park") Crichton is executive producer, let's just believe for now that the drama about life, death and bad coffee in an emergency room is going to get better. But based on how little improvement from the rough cut of the pilot seen in August to the finished version of the first two episodes, which I saw last week, I admit that such belief might be a big mistake.

Emergency Room 3 by Legacy for the PC is so unusual that it deserves its own genre - the doctor simulation. You play the doctor in a busy emergency room, first diagnosing patient problems (about 50 patients are included in the simulation), then deciding how to deal with them. Next, you'll see the patient and your medical tools. Controls consist of simply clicking on the appropriate tool and then clicking on the body part where the tool should be used. Once you're done, you'll fill out a clipboard with such things as the diagnosis and discharge orders before undergoing a review of your performance.

You might have heard that the Harbaugh brothers had no time to discuss the potential for fights at the Ravens' and San Francisco 49ers' joint practices last weekend. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said it was a bit of an indictment on the media that all anyone could focus on when two NFL teams got together was how often they would fight, and his brother, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, accused the media of practically salivating over a negative moment to broadcast. The teams made it three days with nary a skirmish -- wide receiver Steve Smith won the locker room pool -- and we were all left to ponder whether the brothers Harbaugh had helped the NFL turn over a new leaf on fight-free joint practices.

It was two years ago when Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco outdueled San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick during Super Bowl XLVII and was named Most Valuable Player after delivering three touchdown passes and zero interceptions. During the Ravens' joint practice sessions with the 49ers that wrapped up Monday, Kaepernick said he remained impressed with how Flacco throws the football. "I like him as a quarterback," Kaepernick said. "He just sits back there and he picks people apart.

There were no real fights between the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers during a joint practice session Saturday at the Ravens' training complex. The closest they came to a skirmish was a brief shoving match between Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee and 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu. And that didn't seem to surprise the father of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. "The amazing thing is these teams that get together, they normally do the two or three days before the game, and then you play the game and get on the plane and go home," said Jack Harbaugh, a retired former football coach at Western Kentucky, Western Michigan and Michigan.

San Francisco 49ers players walked around the Under Armour Performance Center on Saturday, following signs that directed them to destinations important over the next three days. Arrows pointed them to the dining area, the showers and the indoor training facility, which has been partially transformed to house San Francisco's locker and training rooms. Anquan Boldin didn't need the help. He knew his way around. It had been more than 16 months since the veteran wide receiver was last in the building, but Boldin was one 49er excited about the trip to the East Coast and the joint practices against the team with which he spent three seasons and won Super Bowl XLVII.

Joint practices, which the Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will participate in from Saturday through Monday at the Under Armour Performance Center, have become more popular since the new collective bargaining agreement went into effect in 2011. With no two-a-day workouts and limits placed on the amount of time players are allowed to be on the practice field and the amount of physical contact that they can have, joint practices are being used to pick up the intensity and tempo of training camp and give organizations a better way to evaluate their own players.

Now that the Ravens' preseason opener is in the books, The Baltimore Sun's reporters, columnists and editors weigh in on the team's debut in the 23-3 win against the San Francisco 49ers. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter:  The Ravens got exactly what they wanted out of their preseason opener. The starting offense gained some confidence by going 80 yards and scoring a touchdown on their only drive. The defense settled down after a rough start. And the team emerged from the game with no big injuries to primary players.

Who knows Dr. Doug Ross (George Clooney) of "ER" better than Nurse Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies), the woman who made an almost-honest man out of him?Her final assessment of Ross last week after he unilaterally decided to help a mother euthanize her dying son, violating a raft of hospital policies and promises to colleagues, came down to this: "You don't need anybody else, Doug. You are a country unto yourself. You just make decisions, ruin people's lives -- narcissism elevated to a high art."

John Leguizamo hardly seems the type of actor to be scrubbing in as one of the doctors on ER, NBC's long-running medical drama. The 41-year-old native of Colombia is best known for his edgy one-man shows (Freak, Sexaholix), his work in independent films (from Spike Lee's Summer of Sam to the new Cronicas) and quirky parts in larger movies (Toulouse-Lautrec in Moulin Rouge!). Over the years, he has limited his television appearances to late-night talk shows and the occasional HBO movie.

It was only one drive, lasting 10 plays and just under five minutes. But it was just what quarterback Joe Flacco and the first-team offense needed to kick off the preseason and the Gary Kubiak era. Flacco drove the offense down the field for a touchdown in his only series and spent the rest of the night on the sideline watching the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers, 23-3, in front of an announced 70,529 at M&T Bank Stadium. “It was nice,” Flacco said. “It felt good to get out here in a game-type situation and feel the nerves of a real game.

For three days, the Ravens will cede most of their first-floor meeting space at the Under Armour Performance Center to the San Francisco 49ers, the team they beat in Super Bowl XLVII 18 months ago. The teams will share a gym, showers, dining space and most notably, practice fields. And for several hours under the hot Maryland sun, the Ravens and 49ers will line up across from each other with jobs, reputations and scouting reports on the line. "It's going to be a great opportunity for us to improve," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
