Raven Thompson picked through the unfamiliar acorn-shaped yellow and purple vegetables with a slightly confused look on her face. "What are these?" she inquired with a slight laugh. "They're peppers. Bell peppers. They are just in a different color," said Connor Horne, agricultural project coordinator of Real Food Farm, an 8-acre swath of land in Baltimore's Clifton Park that contains seven high tunnels containing crops, three open fields and a couple of beehives.

" Smith was among the artists chosen to perform and talk at Experience PRS, an annual gathering staged at the Paul Reed Smith Guitars factory in Stevensville.

Niumatalolo shared a story about Reynolds after he threw for a career-high 233 yards and two touchdowns in the team's 51-7 demolition of Delaware Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium . “We eat by class - seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen - and we start off with the starters,” Niumatalolo said.

As she stood near a skywalk leading into the Baltimore Convention Center, Holly Fawcett, a 43-year-old wife and mother from Yorktown, Va., watched as they all flooded past. The men in pink tutus. The women wearing wings and unicorn horns. The teens from places as far away as Colorado and Connecticut, sporting horses' tails, carrying stuffed ponies and high-fiving as though they've known each other forever. It was Day Two of BronyCon 2013, the "Bronies" were streaming in by the thousand, and Fawcett, in run-of-the-mill T-shirt and jeans, gazed in wonder.
