PASADENA, Calif. -- In an effort to brake a ratings slide that has taken it to third place this fall behind NBC and CBS, ABC yesterday announced major changes in its prime-time lineup. Affected are such big-ticket series as "Ellen," "NYPD Blue," "Murder One" and "Relativity."Starting March 5, "Ellen" will go on hiatus for seven weeks with an as-yet-untitled sitcom starring Arsenio Hall taking its Wednesday night time period, ABC Entertainment President Jamie Tarses said yesterday.While a hiatus so soon after a time-period change like the one "Ellen" underwent last month often indicates a show is on its way to cancellation, Tarses guaranteed the show's return in May. "It's a given she will return," she said.

In March 2014, for the first time in over 40 years, a study of the therapeutic benefits of lysergic acid diethylamide - more commonly known as LSD - was published in a peer-reviewed medical journal. It showed that LSD-assisted psychotherapy significantly reduced anxiety in individuals with "life-threatening diseases," including Parkinson's disease and breast cancer . This study is part of a recent wave of clinical research on psychedelic substances like LSD and psilocybin - the psychoactive component of "magic mushrooms.

Armed with umbrellas and optimistically decked out in shorts despite the cool, wet weather, Kathy Deweese and her 9-year-old son breezed through a security checkpoint yesterday morning and prepared to resume a tradition: the annual Bay Bridge Walk. The event had been canceled the past two years, in 2002 because of inclement weather and last year because it would have diverted police from homeland security duties. "I've gone every year" it's been held, said Deweese, 45, of Brooklyn Park.

Johns Hopkins and Loyola have put their annual men's lacrosse rivalry on hold for the 2015 season. Unable to find a Saturday date suitable for both sides, the Charles Street rivals agreed to take a break next season and resume their annual series in February 2016 at Ridley Athletic Complex. With the Blue Jays moving to the Big Ten for 2015 and the Greyhounds playing in the Patriot League this past spring, Loyola coach Charley Toomey said he and Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala were intent on keeping the game on a Saturday rather than participating in a midweek contest during their conference schedules.

LAUREL PARK's most prominent day of racing, tomorrow's Maryland Million, promises to be even better this year, thanks in large measure to extra track money from uncashed parimutuel tickets that has been used to promote these special races for Maryland-sired thoroughbreds.The advertising blitz -- and a craving for live racing after a six-week hiatus -- should bolster attendance and excitement for the prestigious event. Eight of the 11 races on the card have purses of at least $100,000. The biggest one, a mile and three-sixteenths race for three year olds and up, carries a value of $200,000.

Some mothers are calling hot-line nurses for advice, he said."Having a nurse at the other end of the phone is very reassuring to a parent," he said.

Barbara Shapiro's love affair with Druid Hill Park dates to her childhood, when she passed through it daily on the way from her Ashburton home to old School 49 on Cathedral Street. And even when construction of Druid Park Lake Drive in the 1940s and the Jones Falls Expressway in the 1960s removed many of its grand entrances, Shapiro never lost her affection for the park. "I do think construction of the Jones Falls did separate the city from the park," Shapiro, 78, said the other day. She also recalled attending the city's annual one-day Baltimore Outdoor Art Festival during the 1950s until its demise in the 1970s, held on the periphery of the Druid Hill Park Reservoir.

Debbie Yow and Gary Williams are like that couple that called it quits years ago, but whenever you run into them, you still get the sense they'd like to stab each other in the eyeballs. Wow, is this a feud for the ages or what? Yow, of course, is the former Maryland athletic director who used to get along with Williams, the current Terps basketball coach, the way the Bloods get along with the Crips. But when Yow took over as the AD at North Carolina State last year, you thought maybe that was the end of the sniping between the two. Of course, by now we know it wasn't.

In my three years covering Baltimore sports, I've been able to do plenty of fun things, such as covering three Ravens playoff runs, occasionally watching the Orioles win baseball games, lacing up the skates with the Charm City Roller Girls and going one-on-one with the Baltimore Blast's leading scorer, Pat Healey. I have yet to take a legitimate vacation until now (sports bloggers typically don't have six-figure salaries and a lot of downtime). So on Sunday morning, I'm off to the Caribbean where I will be floating from island to island for seven days, showing off my beer belly and watching the NCAA tournament while drinking some frozen beverages with umbrellas in them.

Spring brings renewal, and that was the feeling among some horsemen Wednesday, when the Maryland Jockey Club released a Pimlico spring stakes schedule that includes the return of the Grade III Allaire duPont Distaff on Preakness Day and a $100,000 boost to the purse for the day before's Grade II Black-Eyed Susan Stakes. The MJC unveiled the stakes schedule after reaching agreement with the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association and Maryland Horse Breeders Association. All that remains is for the Maryland Racing Commission to approve it Feb. 15 at its monthly meeting at Laurel Park.

This week, Watchdog brings you an update on a still-unresolved problem. Update:: Watchdog reported in July about the fountain in the middle of Druid Lake, which at the time had not been working for at least a month. The fountain had been featured in Watchdog in 2007, when a lightning strike blew out its electrical system. That came after a $700,000 renovation in 2004. And then this year, as the fountain turns 50, Reservoir Hill resident Michael Baseman once again noted the absence of the streaming water, which he particularly enjoyed at dusk or before sunrise, when illuminated by colored light.

"Pulled Indefinitely." "Off the Schedule." "Permanent Hiatus." These could easily be titles for a new slate of fall sitcoms and dramas. Instead they are the most common euphemisms employed by networks when they talk about the dying elephant in the screening room - the uncomfortable truth that somebody's favorite television show is being canceled. It's a sad fact of life and prime-time television, where a show can last a few episodes (like last season's crime drama Smith) or 11 seasons (like the comedy Cheers)

Summer hiatus limits learning It's safe to predict that President Barack Obama's proposal for longer school days and extended school years will never get anywhere and quickly vanish from the media radar screen ("Obama offers education plan," March 10). This idea is almost universally opposed - by teachers, parents and most of the education establishment. Yet anyone who pays attention to international assessments knows that one of the reasons U.S. students fare so poorly is that they (unlike their peers in most nations)

Michael Phelps' three-month suspension from U.S. Swimming is officially over, and he'll return to competition next week for the first time since Beijing when he swims in the Charlotte (N.C.) UltraSwim. Phelps was suspended in February after a British tabloid published a photo of him smoking from a bong at a South Carolina party. That suspension expired Tuesday. "I'm happy to be back in the water and be back in semi-shape," Phelps told the Associated Press. He said he's lost almost 20 pounds in the past two months.
