Can the fruit of the pomegranate be frozen? The season is very short, and I wondered if the seeds could be stored. Yes, you can freeze either the whole pomegranate or the seeds. Freezing and thawing will soften the seeds, so they won't have the crunch of fresh seeds. But they'll be good for juicing. To freeze the seeds, spread them on a flat metal pan, like a jellyroll pan, stick the pan in the freezer for a couple of hours, then slide the seeds into a resealable freezer bag and press out the air before freezing.

Members of the union representing most of The Baltimore Sun's newsroom employees voted to approve a two-year contract extension Wednesday evening that freezes wages. The union, the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, supported the extension. The Sun's parent, the Tribune Co., expects to spin off its newspapers as a separate company this summer, and Guild leaders said the current contract offers employees stability and protection. A Baltimore Sun spokeswoman said the company was happy with the results.

Temperatures were not forecast to break above freezing on Thursday, but that's not expected to last for long as warmer weather finally returns over the weekend. The National Weather Service called for a high of 32 degrees Thursday with a northeast wind around 10 miles per hour. The low Thursday night is expected to be about 26 degrees. Some freezing drizzle is forecast for Friday morning, but then high temperatures will near the 40s. Over the weekend, high temperatures are expected to hit the 50s - normal for this time of year, but a respite from the bitter arctic cold that gripped Maryland earlier this month.

The long, cold winter was good to farmers and gardeners as frigid temperatures and blankets of snow helped kill pests and moisten soil. So when spring arrived, early bloomers surged to life. Then came plunging temperatures, frost and even snow Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The winter already almost certainly means Marylanders will have to wait a few weeks longer than normal for a peach cake or strawberry shortcake topped with local produce. Now farmers are nervously waiting to learn whether two late-season frosts could damage or kill significant portions of blooming plum and peach trees, which are flowering now and particularly vulnerable to cold.

About six years ago, during a hard freeze with snow on the ground, I heard a sound like paper tearing, but louder, beyond my rear fence. It came from the direction of my neighbors' front porch. I crunched through the snow, stepped over the fence and followed the sound. A stream of water from under my neighbor's porch was tearing at the icy crust on the snow, making the racket. An old galvanized steel supply pipe under the porch had frozen and finally burst. The elderly ladies in the house hadn't heard a thing but took me at my word and let me into their basement to close the cutoff valve on the damaged pipe.

Q: I have a problem freezing my freshly-baked fruit pies. How can I prevent them from getting watery when they thaw?A: Judith Choate, author of "The Great American Pie Book," recommends freezing fruit pies only if unbaked. If preparing a pie that calls for a pre-baked filling, such as a berry filling, let that cool before placing the unbaked pie in a plastic bag and sealing. Otherwise, for such pies as apple or pear pie, prepare entire pie up to baking point. Some frozen unbaked pies can actually be baked while still frozen.

A new technique for freezing sperm-producing tissues can provide "biological immortality" for males, a finding that researchers say could have major impact on conserving endangered species, protecting research animals and preserving the reproduction ability of males who undergo intensive chemotherapy for cancer.The technique might even make it possible for men with abnormally low sperm production to reproduce.Fertility specialists now routinely freeze sperm itself, but the freezing process is tricky and unique for each species.

The National Weather Service issued a freeze watch for Central Maryland, with a cold front expected to drop temperatures by 30-40 degrees Tuesday into Wednesday. Lows could reach the upper 20s in outlying suburbs and at higher elevations, and the lower 30s in Baltimore. That could damage or kill vulnerable house plants and crops. The freeze watch is in effect late Tuesday night through early Wednesday morning. Tuesday is forecast to start off in the 60s but fall throughout the day as a cold front passes through, bringing rain and storms.

Kelly Hayes knew from the time she was in middle school that she wanted to be a lawyer, and she crafted the choices she made as a teenager to set her up to become a federal prosecutor. "The joke around my family is that I started practicing my arguments at 13," Hayes said. Hayes, 29, landed her dream job as an assistant U.S. attorney in Maryland last May and has already worked on a range of cases, including alleged bribery schemes, drug deals and immigration violations. For years, young attorneys hoping to land a job with the Department of Justice's headquarters or in the U.S. attorney's offices around the country ran into a prolonged hiring freeze.

Cloudy skies with high temperatures just below the freezing mark are forecast in the Baltimore area Thursday. Morning lows were expected in the lower 20s, reaching the lower 30s by the afternoon. Northwest winds of 10-15 mph could make it feel like the teens and 20s throughout the day. After an ice storm caused more than 150,000 power outages across the state Wednesday, about half of those households remained without electricity early Thursday morning. Baltimore Gas and Electric officials have warned that some outages may not be repaired until Friday.

As the Columbia Association finalizes its $49 million spending plan for the coming fiscal year, the huge homeowners association is considering a plan that would freeze yearly admission prices to its recreation facilities.The freeze would apply only to Columbia residents, those who already pay property liens to the CA each year. For a $180,000 house, the annual lien amounts to $657.Even if the CA votes to raise fees for residents, the increases would be modest -- in some cases less than 1 percent -- according to the proposed budget.

Despite President Obama's campaign pledge to "push the reset button" on U.S. relations with Russia, America's dealings with its erstwhile Cold War adversary recently have been anything but smooth. Moscow and Washington clashed last year over Russia's offer of temporary asylum to Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who leaked thousands of classified documents to the media. Russia has been at best a reluctant partner in U.S. efforts to resolve the conflict in Syria and negotiate a halt to Iran's nuclear program.

On the heels of a wintry weather system that dropped less snow than expected in the Baltimore region Monday, a new batch of storm watches were set for Tuesday night into Wednesday, with a quarter of an inch of ice possible northwest of the city. Freezing rain is forecast in northern Baltimore County and Carroll County, with a wintry mix expected along the Interstate 95 corridor. Overnight lows are forecast a few degrees below freezing. The system marks a wet and wintry weather pattern that began with Monday's mix of rain and snow and is expected to continue into next week, though with weather warming relative to last month's polar outbreaks, there has been more uncertainty over what precipitation to expect.
