Get ready to help pay for road construction elsewhere in Maryland. The tolls are going up at the state Transportation Authority's two Susquehanna River bridges - I-95 and Route 40 - and it's pretty clear the money will be used to subsidize projects like the InterCounty Connector that serves commuters in the Washington, D.C., suburbs. Starting July 1, the cost to cross the Susquehanna using either the Route 40 Hatem bridge or the I-95 Tydings bridge will increase from $6 for a round trip to $8 for a round trip.

I know and like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the man who has accomplished so much while leading a blue leaning, labor dominated northeastern state. And so it was with much angst that I watched the media circus (dressed up as a press conference) in the immediate aftermath of "Bridgegate" - the revenge play wherein two senior Christie staffers ordered lane closures on the congested George Washington Bridge - allegedly to punish the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., who failed to support the governor's re-election campaign.

RECENTLY IT dawned on me that computers can help a fella out. When they are wired up and working correctly, computers can cough out stuff a guy needs to know, like how to dodge the traffic backup at the Tappan Zee Bridge and how to attack a zone defense. I am probably the last Y chromosome carrier on the planet to figure this out. But a few weeks ago, while visiting my older brother and his family outside Boston, I watched in amazement as my 20-something nephews made the computer produce information on topics ranging from the price of skis to the fastest highways.

The job looms over the Chesapeake Bay like the Bay Bridge. In fact, it is the Bay Bridge.The bridge's south span, sweeping 4.3 miles across the bay's choppy waters, needs a new coat of paint. A team of workmen is deep into the chore.It's a task likely to make a weekend painter or even most professionals feel faint -- 2.5 million square feet of rusting, peeling steel to blast, clean, patch, prime and coat. And that's only the center portion of the span.Just approaching the job each day is a challenge.

GARDINER, N.Y. - As a young man in the mid-1950s, John Atwater Bradley was so taken by the Shawangunk Ridge that he skipped the last day of a conference to hike into the wilderness. He returned 14 hours later, he said, after trekking more than 40 miles. "I didn't expect to be gone that long, but every time I saw something or found something, I just kept going," said Bradley, now 70, who tells the story of his marathon hike to friends and fellow members of the Explorers Club in Manhattan.

Shocking bulletin from the Big Apple: New York is officially agog at the Jets signing of Tim Tebow. "Linsanity" is so yesterday. Now it's all about "Timsanity. " The New York media is reacting to the Jets' controversial signing in its usual under-stated way. The New York Daily News has a cartoon of the Statue of Liberty on its cover. The New York Post ran a front-page headline that blared: "GOD HIM!" And it's all Tim Tebow, all the time on talk radio and the TV sports show.

As I've followed the news about the scandal surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, I am probably not alone in being moved by one of the stories that emerged from the release of emails among his staff. A woman had complained to The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey that her husband, who had been out of work for more than a year, was 40 minutes late to his first day at a new job because he was caught in the traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge. I wince thinking about that man watching the minutes tick by and knowing that his chances of making a positive impression on a long sought-after job were diminished.
