Daylight savings time ends Sunday, which means it's time to reset the clocks back an hour, and an added hour of sleep. "Fall back" officially occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, providing an extra hour of sunlight to the morning but losing an hour of sunlight in the evening. Spring forward, or when clocks are reset an hour earlier, is not until 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March. The only states that don't participate in daylight savings are Hawaii and Arizona, and several U.S. territories.

When Maryland Transportation Authority police charged Olympian Michael Phelps with driving under the influence last week, they had two choices about what to do next: They could release him to a friend or family member, or take him to jail. In Phelps' case, they chose the first option. After the swimmer flunked roadside sobriety tests, according to court documents, officers took him back to a police station. After he took a Breathalyzer test that registered a 0.14 percent blood alcohol level, Phelps signed some paperwork and was released to a "responsible adult," police have said.

Baltimore police were faced with a traffic tie-up this morning in North Baltimore after a vehicle struck a utility pole and knocked it over, blocking the intersection of Northern Parkway and Greenspring Avenue during a rainy rush hour. A city police spokeswoman said officers had blocked off the intersection because wires from the pole were strewn across the road. The accident caused a power outage in the area, she said. There were no estimates for how long the intersection would be blocked.

There were noteworthy developments recently regarding TNA Impact and Raw. It became official last week that Impact is expanding to two hours beginning Oct. 4. It was the realization of a longtime goal for the company, but I'm not all that excited about it. I know that TNA gets criticized for trying to jam too much into one hour, and therefore nothing has impact (no pun intended). But I like that the show moves quickly, and I think it helps keep characters fresh by not having everyone on the show every week.

Commercial photographer Peter Harholdt is a good example of the adage that if you want something bad enough, you can get it no matter the odds.The proof of that came last weekend when the Bolton Hill resident and his four co-drivers blazed their way to a second-place finish in the Grand Touring Prototype-Camel Lights division at the Rolex 24-Hour endurance race at Daytona. Overall, Harholdt's team finished 12th.Anyone who doesn't believe it can see for themselves tomorrow, when ESPN airs a two-hour special on the race at 9 p.m."

South Baltimore's Prohibition-era cocktail lounge Idle Hour has a number of distinctions to its credit: 2009's Midnight Sun Best of the Best of the Best award for Best Pickle Back Shot for one. In addition, it's one of the region's top sellers of the French liqueur Chartreuse. Idle Hour sells so much Chartreuse per annum that the producers of the rather potent herbal beverage flew the owners to France and gave them a full-blown tour of the production facility, monk parties included (yes, it's named after a monastery)

Maryland train buffs shed a tear with the mention of the initials W, B and A.The Washington, Baltimore & Annapolis Electric Railroad was the great one that got away -- a state-of-the-art, high-speed, interurban company that died so regrettably in 1935.For just 27 years, the line linked a geographic triangle formed by the three cities in its name. Its efficient passenger service was heralded as a regional showpiece of progressive engineering. It was the 1908 equivalent of the Baltimore-Washington super-speed transport that is still dreamed of today.

Recently, I was talking with a conservative friend of mine about the drama in Gaza. I knew this individual to be thoughtful about world events and staunchly pro-Israel in outlook. It was sometime after our mutual condemnation of Hamas that our conversation took an unexpected and disturbing turn. Seems my friend is frustrated with the Obama administration's tepid support of Benjamin Netanyahu's government and the Jewish voters who re-elected the U.S. president, a soft-on-Israel candidate.
