When the bill arrived from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, I expected to open it and see that I owed $250 by March 15. Instead it was for $286. That's $36 more than Maryland health exchange website showed my insurance plan would cost. This was the latest snafu in my quest to buy health insurance through the state's troubled online exchange, which has been beset for months by technical problems. The enrollment process took me five hours and 22 minutes and included two calls to the exchange's call center, seven attempts to enter my personal information, two computers and two web browsers.

A Kent County man swam for more than five hours through the dangerous waters of Tangier Sound this week to seek help for four family members after the boat they were fishing in capsized during a sudden thunderstorm. John Franklin Riggs III, 46, of Rock Hall left the 16-foot motorboat about 7:30 Tuesday night after several waves swamped its stern, according to a statement issued by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources on Friday. Riggs, a commercial fisherman, reached shore on Deal Island about 1 a.m., knocked on the door of the closest residence to call for help, and was later aboard one of the rescue boats that pulled his father, sister, niece and nephew from the water.

The chill of a late summer night had fallen over California's Sierra Nevada range, and all Jim Lighthizer could do was pace. Here at 10,600 feet, the trees had thinned out and a full moon lit the canyon. But the splendor hardly registered. His steps took him back and forth in front of a two-man tent. On the floor lay his 28-year-old son, Conor, a diabetic whose condition worsened by the hour. What was he supposed to do? What the hell was he supposed to do? He could go for help or send his brother-in-law.

There are certain things Navy can control as it prepares for its game against Hawaii at Aloha Stadium on Saturday. The weather, however, is not one of them. When the Midshipmen went outside for practice Monday in Annapolis, they put on sweat pants and long sleeves and worked out in the cold, windy, rainy weather. "I don't know too many things, but I know it's warmer in Honolulu," coach Ken Niumatalolo said with a laugh. The forecast for Saturday's game calls for partly cloudy skies and a temperature of 82 degrees.

That will restore the time spread between Baltimore and London to five hours, after three weeks at just four hours.
