Reliever Mark Hendrickson might have had the best full season of his seven-year big league career in 2009, but he is taking a pay cut to remain with the Orioles. He couldn't be more content with his decision. "We had some options out there, but it is one of those things where you really can't put a price tag on what it means to be at home," said Hendrickson, who married this offseason and lives year-round in nearby York, Pa., with his wife, Cortney , and stepdaughter Hannah . "To go home and live a normal life off the field, that plays a huge factor into it. Plus, it's a good team.

Veteran running back Justin Forsett was so frustrated and disheartened following an injury-plagued season with the Jacksonville Jaguars last year that he began contemplating alternate careers and a potential exit strategy from football. Now, the Ravens and Forsett are glad he didn't pursue business ventures or player development options. The diminutive runner displayed his determined, tackle-breaking running style Sunday during a 38-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers at M&T Bank Stadium, rushing for a game-high 66 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.

Unlike the tea party, Democrats do not demand absolute ideological purity. But we do have certain core values that those who claim to be our representatives in Annapolis should be expected to share. So when a politician like Jim Brochin repeatedly takes positions that fly in the face of these values, it is hardly a misrepresentation to call his party affiliation into question. I mention this in response to a recent letter complaining about negative mailers from Mr. Brochin's opponent, former delegate Connie DeJuliis ( "DeJuliis is sliming Brochin," June 7)

Are you glad the Orioles are bringing back Sam Perlozzo in 2007? It's important that they do, for stability. But it won't matter much if the team is not upgraded. Bob Melhorn Baldwin I'm neither glad nor otherwise. Too many empty promises, losing seasons and overall franchise incoherence has simply created a numbing sense of indifference. Bill Piccirilli Lutherville I wasn't happy when he got the job. Why would I be glad they're keeping him? [I'd be glad] if they would bring back Davey Johnson, but Peter's ego is too big for the right decision.

Here's a question. If -- and this is a big if -- the United States could dispatch a swarm of heretofore secret super-drones to find and kill every member of the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram, would you be in favor of doing it? I'll even modify it for those of you who are squeamish about killing terrorists who slaughter men, women and children with abandon. What if the drones could simply paralyze the terrorists long enough for the U.S., or the Nigerians or some duly authorized force of U.N.-sanctioned "good guys," to apprehend them?

If you had arrived at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Saturday after a week of solitary confinement, you might not have noticed anything amiss. The tents were up all over the parking lot, and the tailgate parties were in full bloom by mid-morning. The crowd of 38,225 that filed in for the unusually early 11:30 a.m. kickoff was the biggest in the history of Jack Stephens Field. In other words, everything seemed perfect for the renewal of what has become a great rivalry between the Midshipmen of Navy and the Falcons of Air Force.

BOSTON -  Orioles right-hander Darren O'Day returned to the mound in Thursday's series finale against the Boston Red Sox, hoping the pain, numbness and tingling in his fingers are behind him. The reliever entered in the bottom of the 8th inning and retired the only batter he faced, Mike Napoli , on a grounder to third. He was then replaced with a left-handed batter coming up. O'Day received injections in the right upper palm and right wrist to reduce the inflammation in a tendon that was causing a pinched nerve in his hand, an injury that had been bothering him for nearly a month and forced the Orioles to shelve him last week.

After more than 100 pitches, the fastball had lost some steam and the breaking ball that baffled batters earlier in the game didn't have the same snap. South River senior pitcher Scott Mitchell, his dirty jersey showing the effects of an already demanding day, took a deep breath as pitching coach Gary Gubbings approached the mound for a second visit in the seventh inning. "Can you get this last guy out?" Gubbings asked as he looked the No. 5 Seahawks' ace in the eyes. Mitchell's response was quick and direct: "I got him. " With two runners on against No. 10 Severna Park in an Anne Arundel County matchup, Mitchell threw a high fastball that Falcons second baseman Danny Fulton swung through for the third strike to end the Seahawks' 2-1 win in early April.

The following letter was sent to Maryland State Senator Barry Glassman. A copy was provided for publication. I write regarding the Second Amendment debate in Annapolis. I applaud your stand in defending the Constitution. Perhaps my experiences may help you frame some response to folks who have never carried a gun or faced one, in why merely the presence of a gun can save lives. I am 62, a small farm-owner in Forest Hill, retired from the gas station business, where carrying a revolver saved my life several times, though I never fired a shot in 20 years.

Former members of Congress from Maryland, they rebounded from election losses to find new ways to continue their service. And several of them now report a kind of relief at having left the endless fundraising, the unrelenting schedule and the partisan rancor behind. "When you take inventory, after you've been through it all, you'll find that life is quite nice," says Morella, 81, the Montgomery County Republican who spent 16 years in the House and now heads a bipartisan organization of former lawmakers.

During recent election cycles, the turnout of early voters at Carroll County's only early-voting polling place, the Westminster Senior Activities Center on Stoner Avenue, was at times so light that the campaign volunteers and poll workers easily outnumbered voters. Not so this time around. At around 11 a.m., on Oct. 31, the parking lot at the center was nearly full, and spaces were at such a premium that motorists entering often had to wait for someone else to leave to get a space.
