Madeline Johnson from Kelso, Wash., was looking for a recipe for making apricot-pineapple jam. She said she used to make it years ago, but she has been unable to locate the recipe. She said she is in her mid-80s but still likes to can and freeze. Her husband of 65 years likes to help. Amy Sadera of Parkville sent in a recipe for the jam that comes from the makers of Sure-Jell fruit pectin. It is a straightforward recipe that anyone who has some experience with canning should have no trouble with.

Commuters entering Baltimore from the south on Monday morning found themselves in a massive traffic jam amid widespread confusion about how to navigate a new construction pattern, in part due to a failure by the Maryland Transportation Authority to update signage about the change. "It was way, way, way beyond anything I have seen," said Tamory Winfield, a MdTA spokesman, of the traffic problems on northbound Interstate 95. Crews are rushing to fix the issues before the afternoon rush hour, which will include a northbound influx of fans headed to tonight's Orioles game, he said.

A huge traffic jam that stranded hundreds of holiday shoppers Thursday near an Abingdon strip mall in Harford County took more than two hours to clear, according to state police. The backup sparked a rash of complaints to area law enforcement and was the subject of calls to talk-radio programs in which some shoppers said they had been trapped on the lot for up to seven hours. State police Cpl. John Krysiak said seven hours was "a bit of an exaggeration," but some drivers might have had to wait up to two hours before getting out. "Everyone waited to go Christmas shopping at the last minute," Krysiak said.

Like commuters caught in a Beltway tie-up, Marylanders find themselves coping with the consequences of a collision that was none of their doing: A plume of warm, moist air from the tropical Atlantic has plowed into a cold front stalled in an atmospheric traffic jam. The result has been a seemingly endless succession of showers and thunderstorms, with heavy - sometimes torrential - rains that have dumped more than 10 inches on parts of the state....

Before his name was even announced over the speakers at Camden Yards, the announced crowd of 39,487 stood and gave Orioles reliever Andrew Miller a rousing ovation as he jogged from the bullpen to the mound Friday night. “Pretty cool reception,” said Miller, the newest member of the Orioles' bullpen. “I don't think I ever dreamed of having anything like that. I don't necessarily expect it again. But it was pretty neat. “At the same time, I kind of had to step down and cool off. I had a job to do. But it was pretty neat.

Lawyers for the state and gun rights advocates debated in federal court Tuesday about the government's power to hem in the Second Amendment to ward off mass shootings. Spectators crammed into a federal courtroom in downtown Baltimore to watch the hearing regarding bans on the sale or sharing of assault rifles and magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. Those provisions, which took effect in October, were among a package of measures enacted to strengthen Maryland's gun laws after 26 people were killed in an elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- After an opening five weeks to the season that included rain delays, irregular start times and early-morning flights, the Orioles were looking forward to playing three night games with no risk of weather delays under the roof of Tropicana Field. They didn't account for a 19-minute eighth-inning delay when a set of lights went out along a catwalk connected to the dome's roof Tuesday night. But when play resumed - the row of lights still out - the Orioles were finally sparked by a big hit they had lacked all night.

Monster trucks, wild animals and figure skaters draw millions to Feld Entertainment's live traveling shows each year. But some of that magic comes from an unlikely arena — an industrial complex in Jessup. Thousands of stuffed toys, flashing light sticks and elephant-shaped snowcone cups move annually through Howard County, restocking concession stands at Feld's numerous events. The company produces such popular shows as the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus, Disney On Ice and Monster Jam. "If you went to the circus and you didn't have the snowcones, cotton candy and popcorn, it wouldn't be the circus," said Feld spokesman Stephen Payne.

Most bands' backstory starts with a few friends jamming in a basement or at a club, hitting it off and hitting the road. The Benevento/Russo Duo's story sounds something like that, but ultimately it came down to lunch money. In January 2002, drummer Joe Russo scored a gig Thursday nights at the Knitting Factory in New York City. Since it paid only $100, he knew he couldn't get three more people to jam with him, so he called up his old buddy Marco Benevento, a keyboardist, and they split the pot. "We were like `all right ... $50 each,'" Benevento said.

As I've followed the news about the scandal surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, I am probably not alone in being moved by one of the stories that emerged from the release of emails among his staff. A woman had complained to The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey that her husband, who had been out of work for more than a year, was 40 minutes late to his first day at a new job because he was caught in the traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge. I wince thinking about that man watching the minutes tick by and knowing that his chances of making a positive impression on a long sought-after job were diminished.

The moment had passed more than three weeks ago for Dez Wells and Maryland. Had Wells hit one of the two shots he missed in the closing seconds of Maryland's one-point loss to then-No. 18 Connecticut in the season opener at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., the 6-foot-5 junior guard would have been noticed on the national stage and the Terps might have been ranked. Instead, both went into a prolonged funk. As Monday night turned into Tuesday morning here at the Paradise Jam, Wells and the Terps seized the moment that passed in New York.
