Wide receiver Deonte Thompson was cut by the Ravens on Wednesday, marking the second time in the past five days he's been released. The Ravens replaced him on the roster by claiming former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Lawrence Guy off waivers. He was cut by the Chargers on Tuesday. The Ravens need depth on the defensive line with Chris Canty and Timmy Jernigan both dealing with knee injuries. Canty didn't practice Wednesday. Jernigan has a meniscus injury that kept him from playing against the Cleveland Browns and is still hoping to avoid surgery.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris said he was "a little bummed out" about being placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a right groin strain, but he understands the club is best served when he is fully healthy. "I want to do my job. I just want to pitch every fifth day and win as many ballgames as I can and stay healthy," said Norris, who is 7-5 with a 3.62 ERA in 14 starts this season. "I'm a little bummed out about it, but I've got to take care of it and get back out there as soon as I can. " Perhaps the club's most consistent and effective starter this season, Norris left Saturday's game at Yankee Stadium before the sixth inning because tightness in his right groin.

BOONSBORO -- The congressman, rising to extend a hand of welcome, read aloud the constituent's lapel pin: "Hate is not a family value."Across a table not nearly as wide as the ideological gap thatseparated them, Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett shook hands with David Koontz, co-chairman of the Western Maryland Gay and Lesbian Justice Campaign.For Mr. Bartlett, a conservative Republican from Western Maryland, it was one of 53 individual meetings with constituents throughout Washington County on Wednesday -- and unusual in that it was one of the few with someone who disagreed with him.For Mr. Koontz, it was a chance to tell the congressman whose election he had opposed that he was offended by the word "abhorrent" in a letter by Mr. Bartlett on gays in the military, and to ask to "open a dialogue that is on a friendly basis."

Few lawns in Baltimore get more attention than the playing field at Camden Yards. Early in the season, the grounds crew mows the ballpark grass every day, whether the team is home or on the road. Growth slows during July and August, so the grass cutters cut back to every three to five days when the team is away.

Maryland Superintendent Lillian M. Lowery informed Anne Arundel County on Friday that she will not waive five days of school for the district because of snow this year. As a result, Anne Arundel spokesman Bob Mosier said, the school district has decided to ask Lowery to allow the county to open schools on Easter Monday, making up one of the five days it needs to meet the requirement that students be in session for 180 days a year. "So, we set about trying to make what adjustments we could now," Mosier said.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Right-hander Bud Norris has talked this spring about showing Orioles fans what he can do when he is healthy and pitching at the level he demands from himself. He used the Grapefruit League to make his point, finishing a good spring with a solid effort Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins. "Felt really strong. A little windy, so you really have to control your body out there," Norris said. "I felt I did a really good job of pounding the strike zone.

A Maryland school superintendent wouldn't ordinarily give local systems a pass on the requirement that public school students go to school for 180 days a year. But these have not been ordinary times. The seemingly endless winter, with its unusual number of snow days, has raised the specter of students going to school into the last week of June. On Tuesday, the State Board of Education offered a way out. As light snow fell outside their meeting room, board members voted to give Superintendent Lillian Lowery the authority to waive up to five days of school this year for public schools and two days for private schools.

With the last out of the World Series on Wednesday night, baseball's frenzied free agent period started. Well, at least technically. There's no longer a free agency filing period. So all players who are eligible - they must have, in most cases, accumulated at least six years of major league service time and not be under contract for 2014 - automatically become free agents at the end of the World Series. The eligible players aren't officially allowed to sign with another team, however, for five full days after the World Series ends.

The Orioles traded for two starting pitchers in July, lost another starter to the disabled list and face five days off in the next three weeks. Scheduling the rotation will be a challenge, and Orioles manager Buck Showalter and pitching coach Rick Adair have been working to try and assemble the puzzle. “Rick and I were, the last couple days, mapping out things,” Showalter said. “The off days are good for the rest but, boy, they are tough on the pitching.” After Monday's day off, newly acquired right-hander Bud Norris will start Tuesday's series opener in San Diego and Miguel Gonzalez will start Wednesday - although the Orioles had Gonzalez ready in the bullpen Sunday in case the game went deep into extra innings.

An all-brick Colonial-style home nestled in the golf course setting of Turf Valley in Howard County sold at the end of May for close to the sellers' asking price of $915,000. Just 14 years old and sitting on almost a half-acre of impeccable landscaping, the 4,340-square-foot home in the subdivision of Turf Valley Vistas spent just five days on the market, according to listing agent Bob Lucido of the Bob Lucido Team of RE/MAX Advantage Realty. And while its location spoke for itself, Lucido notes that the main reason for the quick sale was the right price.

It used to be that the Maryland Film Festival was just a cool neighborhood event for Courtney Knipp - a bunch of obscure movies being shown just up the street from her home in Mount Vernon. Not anymore, not with thousands of film fans massing in and around the Charles Theatre , watching movies - 127 this year - - and comparing notes with hundreds of filmmakers from all over the world. This tiny corner of the Station North Arts District becomes the center of the film universe for one weekend every May. And that is so cool by Knipp.
