Regarding job growth in Maryland, it seems to me that Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan is to keep his fingers crossed and hope that federal money keeps flowing into the state. The strategy has worked before because Maryland is home to federal agencies and installations that have kept the funding spigot open wide. It has also allowed Mr. O'Malley and other demagogues to engage in class warfare and rail against "the rich" and "big corporations" because the feds will always keep Maryland afloat, right?

Polly Purcell was hurting."It was the worst pain I've ever had," said the Mount Hebron junior.That can happen when you break two fingers.Field hockey is not a sport in which injuries are common, although plenty of bumps and bruises go with the game.A free hit, however, can be a dangerous situation. Opposing players are 5 yards away, trying to stop the ball with their sticks. Many times the free hit goes airborne, and the defensive players are just lucky to get their bodies out of the way.Purcell wasn't so fortunate last Friday when the Vikings played host to Glenelg.

Q. My husband works in construction finishing Sheet-rock. Sandpaper and spackle dust dry his hands out so the tips of his fingers are often split and painful. A friend suggested wrapping the split fingertips with electrical tape. Amazingly, his fingers healed in a couple of days. This is a trick of the trade I thought you would like to know. A.Thanks for this remedy. People also report success putting Vaseline, Vicks VapoRub, Bag Balm or Udder Cream on their hands at night and covering them with cotton gloves.

One of the fingers, which has a condom over it, could easily be mistaken for something else, institute officials decided.

A few words about Nathan Entingh's hand gun. Meaning, you should understand, not a gun you hold in your hand, but rather, the hand itself, thumb cocked and index finger extended to resemble a pistol. One afternoon late last month, young Mr. Entingh, who goes to school in Columbus, Ohio, was goofing off in science class when he raised such a "hand gun," pointed it at another kid's head, and said, "Boom. " Not a good thing to do, and Mr. Entingh, who is 10, should certainly have been reprimanded.

Weeks after officials at the state's health care exchange began blaming IBM software for the worst problems, including lost applications, IBM began pushing back, saying the state shares some of the blame. It's the latest salvo in the blame game that has been going on since the exchange launched, and crashed, on Oct. 1. In this case, IBM officials released a statement Wednesday that said the exchange also bears some responsibility for the website, which is still so troubled that officials are considering dumping it. IBM was brought in by Noridian Healthcare Solutions, the company that had been in charge of setting up and managing the exchange website until the exchange terminated it last month.

The Glen Burnie couple, in their early 20s, were pumping gas at the station in the 6600 block of Ritchie Highway just before 9 p.m. when a middle-aged man with "decaying teeth" and a neck tattoo approached the woman in the passenger seat of the car and demanded her purse, which she handed over. The suspect walked away and when the husband confronted him, the suspect pointed his finger like a gun at the husband and demanded money from him, too, police said.

Congress is at it again, doing what it does best - eloquently, with righteous indignation, and maybe more than a bit of schadenfreude, gathering together for the grilling of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Hours will be spent in the process with the "satisfactory" outcome of finger-pointing, blaming and… exactly what is the ultimate benefit to the American people, these congressman are so fond of speaking for? Imagine if this august body actually assembled to acknowledge the problem and having done so to proceed collectively toward a solution.

BOSTON - Former Orioles star and current front office executive Brady Anderson jokes that he began planning how to celebrate Chris Davis' 50th home run about three months ago after Davis hit his 30th homer of the season. "He was going to meet me at home plate and probably carry me off the field," Davis said with a smile. "At Camden [Yards], I might have," Anderson said. When Davis broke Anderson's single-season franchise home run record with his 51st in the Orioles' 3-2 win at Fenway Park on Tuesday night, Anderson was watching from the stands.

Second baseman Alexi Casilla continues to improve from the finger injury he suffered Sunday at Tampa Bay, but he is once again out of the lineup with Ryan Flaherty earning the start Wednesday against the Los Angeles Angels. “It still hurts a little bit,” Casilla said. “It'll be sore. I haven't thrown yet. I'm going to throw and see how I feel.” The switch-hitter said he is having trouble gripping the ball and applying pressure when he throws. He threw once Tuesday and was going to attempt to throw again before Wednesday's game.
