A late-morning breakfast meeting at a nearby restaurant turned sour for me recently when I walked through the parking lot afterward and saw motion out of the corner of my eye. A dog. In a car -- a very nice, very expensive car. With one window cracked about two inches, parked in the sun. I stuck my hand in the car (risking a bite, but you do what you've got to do sometimes). It was hot -- much hotter than outside the vehicle. The little gray and brown dog hopped up to the window and panted hard watching me. There's a coffee shop that shares the parking lot, so I waited a few minutes, hoping someone would come out from retrieving their latte and open the car. Didn't happen.

C. Milton Wright track and field coach Donnie Mickey said the Mustangs have a few simple goals for senior Kelli Buck, their top distance runner. They're simple, but tough. "One thing we want is [for Buck] to win the states, particularly in the [1,600 meters]," Mickey said. "The other goal is to try and break five minutes." They're hoping that Buck will become the first Harford County girl to break five minutes in the 1,600 meters. Buck has drawn closer throughout her career, winning her second straight state crown last year in 5 minutes, 8.62 seconds - but setting a county mark with 5:02 earlier in the season.

My dog wakes me up at 5:30 every morning and won't leave me alone until I get up for her walk and breakfast. I want to sleep in during the week - how can I get her to sleep later? Unfortunately, you've trained yourself an excellent alarm clock, and the fastest and easiest way to turn that clock off is to put it in another room the night before you want to sleep late. Be warned that asking her to wait a little longer to eat won't cause any damage, but asking her to hold it when she has to go out can have messy consequences.

The Blast scored in bunches on Friday night and there were far too many for the Rochester Lancers to keep up. The biggest splurge came early in the third quarter - four goals in less than five minutes - and it gave the Blast plenty of cushion on its way to a comfortable 20-9 win over the Lancers in front of an announced crowd of 4,157 at 1st Mariner Arena . Forward Lucio Gonzaga led the way with two goals and two assists for the Blast, while...

Chesapeake goalie Kip Turner made a late save to help the Bayhawks edge the Hamilton Nationals by one goal last weekend. He came through in the final minutes once again Saturday night. Turner made six of his 17 saves in the final five minutes to help Chesapeake hold on for a 14-13 victory over the Boston Cannons, his former team, in a Major League Lacrosse game before 10,126 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The victory was Chesapeake's fifth straight and let the Bayhawks improve to 7-1 and hold on to first place.

NASA successfully launched five rockets early this morning after nearly two weeks of delays, and here's what it looked like in case you missed it. The rockets released chemical tracers that allow scientists to study patterns of the jet stream. The launch took place at 4:58 a.m. from the Wallops Flight Facility on the Virginia portion of the Delmarva. To see more images of the launch, visit the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's page on Flickr .

Eastern Shore readers -- and anyone with a computer -- can watch five rockets being launched 65 miles into the atmosphere Wednesday night into Thursday morning. NASA is planning to hold a launch between midnight and 1:30 a.m. at the Wallops Island facility in Virginia, just south of the Maryland line. The visitors center there will open at 10 p.m. Wednesday for spectators. The rockets are being used to study the winds of the jet stream. Once the rockets reach the intended height, they will release milky white clouds that scientists will be able to see from space.

River Hill girls soccer coach Brian Song has seen his share of closely-contested games against Howard County rival Glenelg with the outcomes not decided until the latter stages of games. In Monday's early-season showdown for first place, he challenged his team to start fast and not look back. They responded. Controlling the first 10 minutes and making the most of their chances, the No. 6 Hawks got early goals from Kathryn Arensmeier and Sheridan Street five minutes apart and protected the lead with poise in coming away with a sturdy 2-0 home win over the No. 5 Gladiators.

For most of the game, the Liberty girls basketball team refused to let Gwynn Park pull away. In the end, however, the Lions gave it away. The Lions weren't used to dealing with the smothering defensive pressure applied by the Yellow Jackets, and they committed 31 turnovers en route to a 64-51 loss in a Class 2A state semifinal Friday at UMBC's RAC Arena. Liberty (21-6), making its first state semifinal appearance since 1983, stayed close until the final five minutes, when the Prince George's County team forced eight turnovers.

Archbishop Spalding senior sweeper Kirsten Frank left the field at McDonogh on Friday more tired than usual. It turned out to be worthwhile exhaustion for the All-Metro standout. After Frank and the Cavaliers' defense continually shut down the Eagles' persistent attack, the visitors got an offensive spark from an unlikely source. Midfielder Francesca Springer scored with five minutes left to give No. 1 Spalding a 1-0 win over No. 2 McDonogh in a rematch of last year's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship game.

There's no time to mince words. Tonight, 16 speakers from different corners of the city's arts and culture scene will discuss a wide range of topics at a bar on North Avenue. The catch? Each one has to cram 20 slides into a five-minute minipresentation. The free event, called Ignite, takes place at the Windup Space in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District. Ignite may be new to Baltimore, but the idea has been around since 2006. Cities from Seattle to Paris have held Ignite events.
