Calvert Hall's football team is fully recovered from an injury-riddled 2013 season. The Cardinals proved as much in Friday night's 35-24 win over No. 3 Franklin, the defending state Class 3A champion that returned 18 starters. After Calvert Hall won last year's inaugural meeting between the schools, 24-14, the Indians were determined to take their first win over a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference team, but the Cardinals scored 15 points in the final 6:55 - a safety and rushing touchdowns by Tim Smith and Kevin Thomas - to put the game away.

Leonards' not the only door knocked down My house, like Andrew Leonards', was wrongly raided by the Baltimore City police in October, 2008. Not only did I receive no sympathy from the department's "Flex Squad," but the lead detective was rude and very dismissive of my claims. After coming home from work that day, I was stopped just short of entering my home, when an elderly neighbor informed me that the police had knocked down my door earlier that morning. My front door appeared normal at first, but I soon discovered that the lock was busted.

Maryland Live Casino officials pounded through a wall near the facility's high-stakes slots and table games rooms Thursday, revealing the construction going on inside a 14,800-square-foot addition that will open next month with 52 poker tables. The ceremonial sledge-hammering marked the public introduction of poker director Mike Smith, a 20-year-veteran who has been chatting with area poker players in online forums. He has sought their feedback on how the room should be run — from which games should be played to how tournaments should be structured — and is working through final details.

WHATEVER legitimate disagreements exist about Baltimore's demolition program, one thing should be clear: A building isn't empty if a neighborhood anti-poverty program is operating inside it.But apparently, that axiom isn't so clear to city housing officials, who were embarrassed last week after they knocked down a building that the South and Southeast Development Center was using for its food and clothing distribution program.The city was supposed to tear down 13 N. Eden St. Instead, it demolished 13 S. Eden, where the program was housed.

Quarterback -- B Anthony Wright played well within himself and the system. The Browns did him a big favor by not blitzing often. Wright made some really nice and tight throws to the outside of the field. He still stares down receivers, but he made an improvement over last week. Offensive line -- B Left tackle Jonathan Ogden and left guard Edwin Mulitalo were good at the point of attack, but Mulitalo has to do a better job of sustaining blocks. Right guard Keydrick Vincent and tackles Orlando Brown and Tony Pashos were good holding their blocks for cutback runs.

Todd Pletcher knew there were rumors. When you're one of the winningest trainers in the game who just happens to condition a fifth of the Kentucky Derby field, there are going to be rumors about your horses. He hadn't heard specifics, like the one about Verrazano, the 4-1 second choice on the morning line, not eating this week. But he refuted it Thursday during a measured session with reporters outside of his barn. "All my horses are fine," he said. "People saw them train.

After Hunter Machin bowled his first 300 in late January, he celebrated in a pretty nontraditional way: He went home and took a nap. But Machin's perfect game was anything but traditional - after all, he was only 12 years old. While most of his fellow seventh graders at Dundalk Middle School are focusing on homework and playing with friends, Machin is busy at the bowling alley, winning tournaments against kids more than six years his senior and...

When, a couple of days ago, I suggested accepting they  as a singular to provide the epicene pronoun English otherwise lacks, there was the sort of brouhaha that one encounters whenever some minor idol is toppled from its plinth.  It occurs to me that the comments fell immediately into the stereotyped responses in disputes over usage and that I could report them here, perhaps using them as a template for responses to further kerfuffles....

Jodi Fader, a condo owner at Baltimore's Ritz-Carlton Residences at the Inner Harbor, will tell you there's nothing like knocking out a few walls to welcome in a world of light and water views. "We've been watching this property develop for the last 11 years," said Jodi Fader who, along with her husband, Brian, was the first to occupy the ground floor, wrap-around unit. "We made architectural changes to make it more like a home. " In addition to opening rooms off of a main hallway to allow for a more circular flow, she and her husband added wood paneling in the kitchen and great room, chose wide-planked, old wood flooring to contrast with the marble of the entrance hall and kitchen area, wallpapered the dining room with a hand-painted scene of Chinese-inspired birds and foliage, and finally, integrated antique family pieces with her transitional decor.

While gun rights advocates are understandably pleased about the Supreme Court's decision this week to overturn Chicago's ban on private citizens keeping handguns in their homes, it's far from clear how far this ruling pushes current law. Certainly, it's no surprise in light of the court's decision to strike down a similar Washington, D.C. prohibition on gun ownership two years ago. In essence, the court's conservative majority has merely chosen...

He missed on a couple of passes that could have yielded more points, but that will get better in time. The only question: Why did coach Brian Billick wait so long to make him the starter?Running backsA-Starter Errict Rhett ran hard during the brief time he was in the game, and replacement Priest Holmes gave the offense a fresh pair of legs and a boost when Rhett was injured.
