Ask Peter Frampton why he decided to put a band together and hit the road, and his answer is surprisingly simple. He isn't heading out because he has a new album to support (he doesn't) or because he's hoping to stoke the flames of nostalgia (he isn').No, Frampton, who will be at Hammerjacks tonight, is heading out because "it's been too long.""I'm the guy who did that big live record, and I haven't been on the road," he says over the phone from New York. "Getting back on the road again makes this all worthwhile, I think."

- With little competition at home, lawmakers from Maryland are traveling farther down the campaign trail this year to influence the midterm elections. Members of the state's congressional delegation have popped up in North Carolina, California and Virginia in recent weeks to stump for colleagues in the closely fought races that will determine which party controls the Senate in January - and those that will likely set the political tone in Washington for the final two years of Barack Obama's presidency.

When gas prices hit $3 last week, Baltimore resident Michael Baker had second thoughts about traveling to New York City for a family gathering. But, heck, Labor Day is the last holiday of the summer, and Baker figured he might as well enjoy the long weekend before "things get hectic." So he and his siblings took a two-car caravan to Brooklyn, despite the higher-than-ever gasoline prices looming over their trip. "What option did we have - ride a bicycle or a scooter to New York City?" said Baker, 23, as he took a driving break yesterday morning at the Chesapeake House rest area along Interstate 95 in North East.

The Orioles are in the exact same place they were when their current four-game losing streak began - atop the American League East standings. As the Orioles open their four-game series in Kansas City tonight, they will still hold a half-game lead over the Red Sox and Yankees. The top four teams in the division are separated by 1 ½ games. Last-place Tampa Bay is just 3 ½ back. That's what makes every series so critical in the AL East. The Orioles' current skid would have been much more painful has it not been for their season-high five-game winning streak last week.

Stanford, Calif. -- After squeaking out wins at home against questionable opposition the first two weeks of the season, Navy hit the road last night, helping Stanford christen its new stadium. The Midshipmen hit. And hit. And hit some more. The result was a lopsided 37-9 victory moving Navy to 3-0 this season. Tulsa@Navy Saturday, 1:30 p.m., 1090 AM, 1050 AM, 1370 AM, 1430 AM

Quote: "You don't ever worry about the clock. There's no slowdown time in baseball." - Brewers manager Davey Lopes, on yesterday's 4-hour, 22-minute game against the Cubs, the longest in National League history. It's a fact: During their four-game series, the Cubs and Brewers combined for 69 runs, 96 hits and 17 home runs. Who's hot: The Reds' Dmitri Young extended his hitting streak to a career-high 16 games. Who's not: In his past three starts, Mets pitcher Rick Reed has given up 15 earned runs in 21 1/3 innings.

Travelers seemed to be moving fairly smoothly toward their destinations yesterday with few major hiccups on what was expected to be the second-busiest travel day of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. BWI Marshall Airport spokesman Jonathan Dean said things had "gone splendidly" for the 72,000 passengers anticipated to move through the gates and terminals yesterday. "There has not been any significant delays," he said. Some flights to Atlanta and Chicago were backed up because of weather, and others headed to airports around New York City were delayed because of heavy traffic, according to the Federal Aviation Administration Web site.

DETROIT -- After winning five of seven and taking both series in last week's homestand against the Angels and Red Sox, the Orioles hit the road today to open a six-game, seven-day road trip to Detroit and Toronto. There must not be much to do in downtown Detroit, nearly 10 players are already here at Comerica Park participating in early batting practice. Since the beginning of the 2012 season, the Orioles have played very well away from Camden Yards. The Orioles, who now lead the majors with 15 series wins after taking three of four from the Red Sox, are second in the American League with 20 wins, trailing only Boston's 21. The Orioles also lead the majors in road batting average (.279)

Stacey Chambers has always been on the move. As a child, her nickname was Go Go, because she rarely slowed down. So it comes as little surprise that Chambers, 31, would wind up running a fashion boutique out of a bus. Chambers runs Go Go's Retread Threads (the name borrowed from her childhood moniker) out of a bus from the early '90s she's named Elsa, parking at farmers' markets, at festivals and on neighborhood streets to sell vintage clothes. Chambers started the business in 2010 after she heard a National Public Radio story about how small businesses run out of traditional storefronts were struggling.

If you gotta go, you gotta go. To Super Bowl XLVII, that is. And Ravens fans have got to go to New Orleans, getting there any which way they can. Direct flights from Baltimore to the Big Easy have long since sold out, leaving fans to come up with creative travel plans. Some are going for fly-and-drive combinations, like flying into Panama City Beach, Fla., - and making the roughly four-hour drive to New Orleans. Others are taking flights to Jackson, Miss., a relatively short drive of less than three hours.

After reading the statement by Maryland State Highway Administrator Melinda Peters that construction speed cameras need to be operating even when workers are not present, I believe she needs another title: professional liar ("SHA defends speed camera program," Jan. 16). I wish we were back in the early 1800s because she would be ridden out of town after being tarred and feathered. Now that we are in civilized 2013, I guess the best thing to do with her is to fire her immediately.

The American Legion Riders from Towson Post 22 hosted its second annual fundraiser on July 8, hitting the road to benefit America's VetDogs, an organization that trains and supplies service dogs to disabled veterans at no cost. "We did very well," said event chairman Doug Hopkins, a resident of Nottingham who grew up in Towson. "We raised over $3,500, which was really good," Hopkins said. "We had a little over 50 bikes," he said, "but it wasn't the turnout I expected, because of the heat and possibility of rain.

On Nick Markakis, Orioles' 22-year-old outfielder Defense -- "He's got a bona fide right-field arm, but they should give him a shot in center field. If you put him in center rather than left or right you don't have to worry about him hitting more than 20 to 25 homers. He runs well and can cover ground in center. They put him in center one game this spring and I said to myself, `It's about time.'" Hitting -- "He has a little trouble with balls that are inside on him. He's had trouble turning his top hand, but he muscles the ball very well to left field and he puts it in play.

Early on "That's Why God Made the Radio," the new Beach Boys album released earlier this month, comes "Isn't It Time," a breezy pop song bursting at its seams with the group's instantly recognizable vocal harmonies. "The world is changed and yet the game is still the same," sings bandleader Brian Wilson. He could be singing about dancing with his favorite girl, but it's also an apt line for California's most famous surf-rockers' current state. Time has passed, but the Beach Boys' most famous trademarks - layered, larger-than-life singing, and sunny lyrics that longingly nod to fleeting summer love - remain intact.

The skies were clear and the air light on Sunday, June 3, for the first ever 5K run and 1-mile walk to benefit Assistance Center of Towson Churches. When the event kicked off on the grounds of Goucher College at 5 p.m., everyone from babies in strollers to dogs on leashes, casual walkers to runners in training hit the pavement to benefit ACTC and its outreach efforts to families in need. "We had a good turnout," said Suzanne Boellner, a ACTC board member. Some 250 people had registered to take part in the run, and Boellner estimated another 50 to 75 signed up at the start.
