Lecturing on the benefits of regular exercise won't change anyone's sedentary habits, but creating an environment that supports routine physical activity will.

"To Your Health: How Community Design Can Promote Healthy Lifestyles" is co-sponsored by the Columbia Association and the Horizon Foundation.

Dumser's soft ice cream cones were still twirled perilously high, Thrashers' french fries were still doused in vinegar, and the surf was clear and cold as ever, but there were signs of change in Ocean City this summer. In some cases, literally: Town officials posted signs along the boardwalk asking visitors to refrain from using profanity. It was an unusual move in an interesting season at Maryland's most popular resort town. The planning board discussed curtailing weekly rentals in some neighborhoods but ultimately rejected the idea.

DALLAS -- The Hillhaven Corp., a leading nursing home chain, rebuffed a hostile $1.5 billion offer from rival Horizon Healthcare Corp. yesterday, refusing even to negotiate. Hillhaven's chief executive, Bruce L. Busby, said that Horizon had offered too little and could bring Hillhaven few savings or advantages.Hillhaven has trimmed its debt, raised its stock price and readied itself for rapid growth, he said. "The offer is clearly inadequate," Mr. Busby said. "It's a flat no."In response, Horizon refused to raise its offer unless the Hillhaven board agreed to meet or furnish more information, raising the prospect of a stalemate.

Campbell Handicap at Pimlico Race Course, barely holding off an inside rally from favored Reputed Testamony.The 4-year-old was ridden by Calixto Juarez, a 20-year-old apprentice who was also winning his first stakes.

Older adults, people with mental illnesses and low-income individuals in Howard County should see improved health care services over the next few years under a new $3 million partnership between the Horizon Foundation and Howard County General Hospital. After several years of planning, the Community Health Partnership officially took shape last week with a commitment of $950,000 over four years from Horizon -- the largest grant in that philanthropy's nine-year history -- and $2.1 million from the hospital.

A $500,000 grant from the Horizon Foundation is the latest boost for Howard County's ambitious health access plan for uninsured residents. The gift provides the bulk of the $750,000 in private donations that County Executive Ken Ulman has said the innovative program, Healthy Howard, needs for the first year of operation. "To get this support is really tremendous," Ulman said. "It pretty much allows us to reach our goal." Aetna Insurance, which last week announced a discount dental services plan for program participants, also pledged $56,000.

The traditional strength of the Johns Hopkins program is showing up at the right time. With Sunday's 14-8 victory over eighth-seeded Virginia in an NCAA tournament first-round game, the Blue Jays (11-4) have limited six of their last seven opponents to under 10 goals. And with the Cavaliers going scoreless for a 20 minute, 29 second stretch and an 18 minute, 17 second stretch, the defense has shut out opponents for 15 minutes or longer 15 times this season. Coach Dave Pietramala said Johns Hopkins had better defensive showings in a 13-8 win against Albany on April 4 and an 11-6 victory over Maryland on April 12, but said the team improved as the contest developed against Virginia (10-6)

It would probably be fair to say that Navy would have preferred a route other than backing into the Patriot League tournament, as it did on Saturday. The team suffered a 14-7 loss to archrival Army, but seized the sixth and final spot in the conference tournament courtesy of Bucknell's 13-1 rout of Lafayette and Colgate's 11-9 decision over Holy Cross. Still, the Midshipmen (4-7 overall and 3-5 in the league) are in the tournament and would love nothing more than to grab a little momentum heading into Tuesday's quarterfinal against Lehigh (10-4, 5-2)

One thought kept crossing my mind and timeline last night: "Jake really is Command. " We start off the episode with a chopped monologue from Jake about what it means to be Command, and how it requires you to have no ties and no family. This is going to be bad. Elsewhere, Sally is having a breakdown during debate prep: there's a bizarre, religion-tinged ranting about Fitz being the devil, complete with cloven hooves, complete with the phrase "Yum, yum, crispy piggy. Yum yum. " It's so bad that Leo Bergen called in her pastor to help her get it together, and even he seems to doubt whether or not he can reel her in. Fitz is busy with prepping, as well, with Mellie playing Sally and Andrew Nichols as Governor Reston . Mellie makes a really good Sally, and is positively glowing while pretending to debate, which is more proof than ever that she should BE THE PRESIDENT AND NOT FITZ.

Navy's 18-5 rout of VMI last Saturday was the program's 13th consecutive season-opening win since a 9-8 overtime loss to UMBC on Feb. 24, 2001. While the victory was also notable for snapping a seven-game losing skid that ended the 2013 campaign, coach Rick Sowell said Monday that the emphasis for the team was turning its attention to this Saturday when Georgetown visits Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis at 12 p.m. “It's always...

A year ago, Syracuse was ranked outside of the top 10 in many preseason polls and closer to the mid-teens than No. 10. This winter, the program is getting the respect that an 11-time NCAA champion deserves. The Orange are ranked either No. 1 or 2 in many preseason polls, and that attention has not escaped the notice of coach John Desko. “It's such a difference for us,” he said. “There weren't any expectations last year. I don't know where we were picked - 14, 15, 16 or 17 in the country - into the season.

The Ravens aren't done overhauling their offensive coaching staff with further changes anticipated following a season where the offense struggled to regularly manufacture points and yards. Now that the Ravens have hired offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak and quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison, they still have other positions to fill. "It's going to be in flux a little bit," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday during an introductory news conference for Kubiak and Dennison at team headquarters.

Your assignment tonight -- or any clear night this week -- is to go outside after dark, look up and treat yourself to a beautiful view of six planets visible to the naked eye, including the one you're standing on.The celestial parade actually features eight planets, but a glimpse of Neptune and Uranus requires telescopes. Only Pluto is missing."It's lovely," said Lucy Albert of the Harford County Astronomical Society. "It's neat to be able to see eight planets all in one evening."This week, a waxing crescent moon will join the evening spectacular as a sort of pointer, guiding observers through the lineup.

No Line on the Horizon U2 [Interscope Records] ** 1/2 (2 1/2 STARS) Less than a minute into the first track on U2's new album, No Line on the Horizon, it's clear the Irish rockers are ready to take risks again. That much is refreshing. For all of the copies sold and Grammys won, U2's last album, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, was a safe bet. The songs were focused and vaguely reminiscent of the group's early years, but few were very memorable. Not so with No Line on the Horizon, which won't be released in stores in the U.S. until next Tuesday, but was available for listening this weekend on U2's MySpace page and on U2.com.

That 3-0 start the Towson men's basketball team got off to seems like a distant memory now. Wednesday night's 76-67 loss at Oregon State was the third in the last four games for the Tigers (7-5), who trailed by 21 points midway through the second half before keeping the final score respectable. Coach Pat Skerry said he appreciates the effort he has seen from the players but also noted that the team needs to pay more attention to the details that can determine the outcome. “We're not doing the little things for long enough stretches yet,” he said Thursday as the team traveled from Corvallis, Ore., to Fargo, N.D., for Saturday night's game at North Dakota State.
