A line of potent storms prompted at least two tornado warnings in Maryland and dropped hail as large as golf balls Thursday afternoon. One tornado warning was issued after 4 p.m. in the Annapolis area, with a storm showing rotation on radar moving across central Anne Arundel County before crossing the Chesapeake Bay and prompting warnings on the Eastern Shore. Another potential tornado appeared on radar in Kent and Queen Anne's counties on the upper Eastern Shore. National Weather Service meteorologist Anthony Gigi said storm trackers would go Friday to Kent, Del., where a tornado was reported.

A lot of families around here come back from their spring breaks with deep tans. We have 217 golf balls. This column is either going to depict my family as inventive and charmingly oriented toward simple pleasures; or expose us as hopelessly peculiar. We went to a golf resort in West Virginia to meet my husband's parents, who are from Indianapolis. None of us plays golf, but we have met there over the years because it is about halfway between our respective homes. But early April is an iffy time to travel to West Virginia, or, I suppose, anywhere in the Mid-Atlantic region.

For my latest blog for The Baltimore Sun, I thought it might be fun to interview my favorite celebrity, golfer Fuzzy Zoeller. As you know if you've seen my car, Fuzzy's Ultra Premium Vodka is my primary sponsor, but Fuzzy is more than just the name behind the incredible spirit that powers our team. He's also a family friend, an Indiana boy and one of the greatest golfers who ever lived. So, without further ado, here's my Q&A with my sponsor: Me: Why did you choose my team?

Doesn't Congress have enough to do with problems in the United States than to worry about flags and golf balls on the moon ("Md. congresswoman proposes national Apollo park on the moon," July 10)? Are we going to install a camera on a satellite to watch this area so no one touches anything? If some other country does touch these artifacts, who's going to arrest them? We need to concentrate our resources on this planet rather than spending millions of dollars to protect golf balls, flags, and the lunar landing site.

So, Rep. Donna Edwards wants to spend who knows how much money we don't have creating and protecting a park on the moon ("Md. Congresswoman proposes Apollo national park on the moon," July 10). Really? How are you going to accomplish that? And among the treasured artifacts requiring this protection are golf balls. Do we even know where they are? This is a stunning example of the intellect of our politicians. Lorraine Curtis, Baltimore

Q: My circa-1880, hand-made, hickory-shaft, brass-headed, lady's golf putter was a 16th-birthday gift to my mother. There's no maker's label. How much is it worth?A: Your putter has greater sentimental than monetary value, said dealer Morton W. Olman, co-author of "Olman's Guide to Golf Antiques & Other Treasures of the Game" (Market Street Press, $20 postpaid from Mr. Olman, The Old Golf Shop Ltd., 325 West Fifth St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202, [513] 241-7797). Late 19th-century putters are common, and most old hickory-shaft clubs fetch around $15.At Sporting Antiquities' golfing memorabilia auction in May, sets of four hickory-shaft clubs, some hand-forged like yours, were relative bargains, selling for around $55 per set, well below their optimistic $200 to $300 pre-sale estimates.

I have been watching Oriole games held in Camden Yards and on the road, and the baseballs have been flying out of the ballparks like they were shot out of a cannon. Home runs are regularly being hit as far as 450 feet. If there are 10 or 11 hits in a game, at least three of them are often home runs. In Toronto's ballpark, where the Orioles and the Blue Jays recently played each other, many of the home runs were hit so hard and so far that I thought I watching golf balls being hit off of a tee. What is this, Home Run Derby or a legitimate baseball game?

Like professional athletes who get ready for their respective seasons in training camp, weekend golfers prep their games in the offseason. Some work out feverishly doing golf-specific exercises. Others take lessons to hone their swings. And more than a few simply go out and take their whacks on the driving range. Jim Kardash, who has owned and operated the Arundel Golf Park in Glen Burnie since 2004, said golfers run the gamut when it comes to conditioning their bodies - and their minds - for a game that takes its toll physically and mentally.

After competing at a high level in gymnastics throughout her childhood, Arundel senior Elyse Smidinger switched to golf when she was in the eighth grade. To say she has been proven to be a quick study is an understatement. On Oct. 25, Smidinger added to an already impressive resume when she cruised to her second straight individual girls state championship. In addition to her success at the high school level, Smidinger won the Maryland Junior Championships in 2009 and 2011 and was the runner-up in this year's Maryland Women's Amateur Championships.

The latest news on executive pay at publicly traded companies is good - if you happen to be a CEO, that is. Reflecting the national trend, at least 14 highly-paid chief executives of 19 companies surveyed in the Baltimore region saw fatter paychecks in 2010, according to a Sun analysis. We are not interested in vilifying the executives who in many cases steered their companies toward much better financial performances last year. It's entirely possible many were well-deserving of a merit-based wage increase.
