Motorists headed to BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport from the south may want to "plan ahead and allow extra time to catch flights" this week and through the weekend, State Highway Administration officials warned Tuesday. Temporary closures of the ramp carrying northbound Route 295 traffic onto eastbound Interstate 195 toward BWI will begin Wednesday night, the SHA said. The ramp will close at 10 p.m. Wednesday and won't reopen until 5 a.m. Thursday as crews remove damaged concrete from the ramp, the SHA said.

St. Mary's was supposed to begin the season Sunday at Roanoke. But the winter storm that dumped more than a foot of snow in and around Baltimore was even more paralyzing at Roanoke, forcing both teams to push back the season opener to Tuesday. So instead of kicking things off Sunday, the Seahawks - ranked 18th in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll - have been hitting the practice field in preparation for the No. 8 Maroons. “We had prepared and were hoping to get the game in,” coach Chris Hasbrouck said Monday afternoon.

It wasn't easy. In fact, extra time was needed. Yet despite adverse economic conditions, the 1990 campaign of the United Way of Central Maryland managed to bring in a record $31.9 million in contributions.This is wonderful news for the 300 indispensable health and human service programs that depend on funds from the United Way. As the recession has deepened, their services have been under increasingly heavy demand.Seventy-five percent of campaign contributions came from employees at the workplace, 20 percent from corporations and 5 percent from individuals and foundations.

The state task force charged with overhauling Maryland's system of school financing agreed yesterday to ask legislative leaders for extra time, putting off what is sure to be a politically contentious battle for at least a year. "We're serious about this, and to do it right is going to take some time," said Alvin Thornton, chairman of the state's Commission on Education Finance, Equity and Excellence. The request for an extra year - which is expected to be approved - came as one of the nation's leading education budget consultants told the commission that Maryland's education funding structure does a reasonably good job of ensuring equity in spending among the 24 school systems.

McDonogh sophomore attackman Trey McGee had a difficult chore just getting on the lacrosse field this season, as he battled mononucleosis during the preseason. Despite still feeling a bit under the weather, he's certainly making the most of his time on the field. The biggest proof came in the Eagles' 7-6 overtime upset of then-No. 1 Calvert Hall on Friday, when McGee scored three goals, including the tying tally to force the extra time. In his second season on varsity, McGee has received more playing time and contributed 13 goals and four assists in the young Eagles' 5-4 start.

This is an edited excerpt of an editorial from the Los Angeles Times, which was published yesterday. THE SAT has long been a hallmark of meritocracy in U.S. education, affording students regardless of station in life a chance to prove they deserve access to the nation's best colleges. However, the SAT has been battered over the years by charges that its questions played to the white middle class and that scores were easily raised by expensive private coaching. But its reputation as the best evaluation tool available has largely survived.

Temperatures are a little too warm for snow, but Maryland rarely goes a season without some of the slippery white stuff. So, it's best to be prepared. About 1 million people fall every year and about 20,000 die from their injuries, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention . Don't be too confident, says Mike Ross, author of “The Balance Manual” and exercise physiologist at Gottlieb Center for Fitness in the Loyola University Health System.

It's 6:30 in the morning, and the alarm goes off. It's time for you to get in the shower so you can get ready for work and be at the office by 7:30. Your first few moves out of the bed are slowed down when you remember that you were furloughed and there is no rush to go anywhere. Instead, you have to figure out how to deal with the eight hours that you would have typically spent at work. You grab your cup of coffee and turn the TV on to watch the news, hoping that the government gridlock came to an end, but you find that no compromises were made for thousands of federal employees to return to work.

The first day of practice arrives a little earlier this fall and public school football coaches could not be happier to get started Wednesday instead of waiting until Saturday. "For us, it's vital," said Franklin coach Anthony Burgos, whose team kicks off Sept. 6 against Calvert Hall. "We're opening our season with a team that's already been practicing a week and a half. For us to get these extra three days allows us to prepare more for our opening game. " Those three days give coaches back the time they lost last fall when the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association implemented newly legislated rules for gradually acclimatizing athletes to the sometimes-searing August heat and humidity that can be deadly when athletes are not used to it. Coaches still had three weeks to prepare for their season opener last year, but less practice time in the early days erased about 15 hours of preseason work.

Will the Maryland basketball team show improvement from last season during its upcoming trip to the Bahamas? That's what third-year coach Mark Turgeon is hoping for during a three-game, four-day exhibition tour against local competition that begins Tuesday night in Nassau. In an interview last week, Turgeon said that the extra summer practice time allowed under NCAA rules for teams going on trips out of the country has turned the Terps into a more mature group. "To me, it's more about the practices and the preparation, which the guys have done a great job with," Turgeon said.

Mount St. Mary's coach Tom Gravante is quick to point out that the team's 1-4 skid in its last five contests can be traced - in part - to an inability to control faceoffs (48.7 percent on 58-of-119 wins) and collect groundballs (105 to opponents' 127). Gravante also conceded that sophomore goalkeeper Chris Klaiber is enduring his share of struggles in the cage. Over that same span, Klaiber has allowed 55 goals and posted a .466 save percentage. Klaiber, who had the enviable task of succeeding four-year starter T.C. DiBartolo, has been particularly vulnerable against shooters who take aim at the upper portion of the net. “He's really struggling with the high-to-high shots,” Gravante said Thursday before referring to last Saturday's 17-9 thumping at the hands of Northeast Conference rival Bryant.

Every extra drop of adrenaline provided by Alex Ovechkin's game-tying, overtime-forcing tally was coursing through the Washington Capitals in extra time of Game 2 of this Eastern Conference semifinal series. They dominated play and sparked bedlam from the capacity crowd behind them, but all the momentum of that setting wouldn't keep the Tampa Bay Lightning from taking advantage of one mistake. Veteran defenseman Scott Hannan thought he could get off the ice for a change and his replacement, Jeff Schultz, would be in position before the puck made its way back to the Capitals' end. The Lightning noticed the change and quickly turned up ice. With 6 minutes, 19 seconds gone in the extra period, Vincent Lecavalier sent a shot above Michal Neuvirth's glove on a two-on-one as a result of the change to seal a 3-2 Tampa Bay victory.

I have to punch a time clock at work. If I run late and clock in eight minutes or more into any quarter of an hour, I am docked for the full 15 minutes. For example: If I punch in at 9:08 a.m., I'm docked as if I punched in at 9:15. I also catch it at the other end of the day: If I leave at 5:23 p.m. instead of my usual 5:30 quitting time, I am docked as if I left at 5:15 p.m. Is this legal? No, it's not legal. Your manager is a rounding zealot and is violating the intent of the federal labor law giving companies the right to record time in manageable intervals.
