A new Main Street restaurant is the first in Laurel's Historic District to take advantage of the state law change that allows liquor licenses within 500 feet of a church. Olive on Main, which opened April 21 in the former site of Salute Italian Restaurant, is in the 500 block of Main Street and a block away from both First United Methodist Church and St. Philip's Episcopal Church. In 2013, the Maryland General Assembly passed a law amending a state law that denied establishments to serve alcohol within 500 feet of a church.

Archbishop Spalding's Aaron Barclay celebrated his 17th birthday in a big way at Ripken Stadium. Barclay hit a 3-1 pitch down the left-field line for a three-run home run Sunday in the bottom of the third inning to help the No. 2 Cavaliers (24-4), the top seed, to a 5-2 win over No. 3 Calvert Hall (22-7) in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship game. "It was a 3-1 count, and I thought about not swinging because we had a steal on," Barclay said.

A sore ankle did not prevent Mike Chanenchuk from delivering for the Maryland men's lacrosse team. The senior attackman's goal with two seconds left in the fourth quarter propelled the seventh-seeded Terps to an 8-7 win over Cornell in an NCAA tournament first-round game at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. That score gave Maryland its first lead of the game and was enough to help the team advance to a quarterfinal at Hofstra on Saturday; it will face the winner of Sunday night's first-round contest between Bryant and second-seeded Syracuse.

When my daughter was a freshman in high school, she shared a particularly uplifting experience from history class one day. In the middle of a lesson, a senior barged into the classroom with tears in his eyes and handed the teacher a letter. A smile spread across the teacher's face as he read in silence. The teacher then turned to the class and announced that the student had just received a full scholarship to an excellent college. The teen pointed toward the window and whispered, to the teacher, "If it hadn't been for you and this school, I'd be out on those streets selling drugs.

Even a three-goal performance from Kara Burke (Dulaney) wasn't enough for the No. 11 Loyola Maryland women's lacrosse team as No. 2 host Syracuse scored the last five goals and won in overtime, 14-12, on Saturday.

And on the fourth day, the Orioles played. They won, watched it rain, and then they won again at nearly 1 a.m. with a walkoff homer by Matt Wieters in the 10th inning. After a scheduled day off Monday, followed by consecutive rainouts Tuesday and Wednesday - the first time they've been postponed consecutively since 2004, and the first time it has happened at Camden Yards since 2000 - the Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates finally played on what was supposed to be a mutual day off Thursday.

It's Latin Night. Guest judge Ricky Martin starts the show with a performance, which is seemingly live. Tom Bergeron mentions that Danica McKellar broke a rib over the weekend, but she's out there shimmying and shaking during the intros, so girl is tough. First results of the night: Danica & Val are safe; James & Peta are in jeopardy; Amy & Derek are safe. Amy Purdy & Derek Hough, Rumba Amy and her boyfriend have been having trouble during the last year and a half and the idea of a "dance of love" gets her emotional.
