The Spurs moved on, and the Mavericks are done early again. Manu Ginobili scored 26 points and San Antonio survived blowing a 22-point lead to beat Dallas 97-87 in Game 6 on Thursday night, handing Dirk Nowitzki and the second-seeded Mavericks another first-round exit. The Spurs got payback after the Mavs eliminated them a year ago and will play either the Suns or Blazers in the Western Conference semifinals. "For us there was no tomorrow," Ginobili said after the Spurs finished off the Mavs in front of a raucous home crowd.

The University of Maryland and its partner of 61 years, the Atlantic Coast Conference, finally agreed on the terms of their messy divorce: a mediated settlement, announced Friday, under which the school will pay $31 million of a $52 million exit fee the conference sought. The settlement figure is the amount the ACC already has collected by withholding shared conference revenues — without Maryland's consent — to make sure it got at least a portion of what it demanded. So after nearly 21 months of litigation in Maryland and North Carolina courts, each side can walk away.

Ever wonder what happens when your pickup truck skids off an interstate highway and smacks into one of those big, gaudy green, overhead signs? Besides your headache, injuries and messed-up pickup, that is?Some of you got an inkling on the drizzly night of Feb. 23, when the southside Beltway's outer loop was shut for short periods of time. That was so crews could take down the exit sign for Route 2 to Brooklyn, as well as two other signs and the steel truss that held them aloft.You also might have experienced another dimension the next day, when you missed the same exit because the Brooklyn sign had vanished, leaving just four fat steel poles and a smaller yellow sign reminding exiting drivers to slow to 30 mph.The story's unhappy ending, however, will be known best by the driver of a certain 1992 Toyota pickup.

But the team returns seven of its top 10 scorers, three defensemen who got considerable game experience, and a goalie who opened the 2013 campaign as the starter.

Carroll County officials said Tuesday the county will pay a $1 million penalty to get out of a deal to build a waste-to-energy incinerator with Frederick County. In 2009, the previous Board of County Commissioners signed a pact with Frederick County and the Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority to build an incinerator in Frederick capable of handling 1,500 tons of waste a day. The current commissioner board decided in 2012 they wanted out of the deal, citing concerns with the cost of building the incinerator and hauling costs.

Whatever happened to Route 3 and Route 301?Aron Raskas remembers a time when the dual-name highway had its own exit on the Beltway. Seems like in those halcyon days America could afford highway signs that advertised not one, but two major thoroughfares.Today, the same exit is "no longer marked like that," says Mr. Raskas, a city lawyer. "It just says I-97/Annapolis."Naturally, Mr. Raskas is aware that the highway was upgraded and renamed to Interstate 97 a couple of years back. But isn't I-97 still the easiest way to get to either Route 3 or Route 301?

Faced with vacant stores and declining sales at Mount Airy Shopping Center on Route 27, new owner Gary Rappaport is asking the State Highway Administration to reopen two-way access to the road.Dual access to the highway is the only way to revitalize the 22-year-old center, he said. Shoppers can enter from Route 27, but cannot leave by the same route. They must exit on Ridgeville Boulevard, which many have called a dangerous crossing.Rappaport has won the support of merchants and shoppers, and in less than a month has collected 1,200 signatures to prove his point.

In an essay for the New York Times, retiring fashion editor Cathy Horyn, a powerful commentator on the industry for 15 years, wrote in praise of "practical dressing. " She began by saying that she is freshening two bedrooms in her upstate New York house but is going to paint them exactly the same colors - light green and "ballroom blue" - rather than drive herself crazy with too many choices. This decision, she said, "sums up everything I feel about style and comfort. Or should I say the revenge of comfort over style.

So here's the thing: "Scandal” won't be returning until Feb. 27. The news came out that they were cutting the season short a few episodes -- most likely due to Kerry Washington's pregnancy (CONGRATS!). But that doesn't change the fact that fans are not happy about having to wait over two months to find out what the consequences of last night's episode will be. We start off with Sally, who is still reeling from murdering Daniel Douglas. In frenzied flashbacks, we see how it happened.
