The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.

One moment changed everything for Max Major. From the age of 12, the mentalist has been practicing the art of magic. But it wasn't until he turned 18 and saw his dad hypnotized to quit smoking that he realized magic was more than just clever tricks - it involved understanding the human mind. "That was like real-life magic to me," said Major, 30. "And I wanted to learn everything I could after that about our mind and the way that we're wired!" Major, who lives in Washington but is originally from Carroll County, is bringing his stage show "Think: An Evening of Mind-Reading and Magic" to the Theatre Project at 8 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. and 9 p.m Saturday.

The Orioles have reached the All-Star break, and Caleb Joseph can't believe he's still on the team. Joseph, who made his major league debut May 7, has emerged as the regular catcher in the lineup since Matt Wieters went on the disabled list in early May. Since the Orioles traded for Nick Hundley on May 24, Joseph has played in 11 more games than the seven-year veteran. "It's pretty fast-moving," Joseph said. "Before you know it, you're in the big leagues, and then it's the All-Star break, and you're still in the big leagues.

Standing in the home clubhouse after the shortest outing of his career, Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen pondered why he has given up so many home runs lately, including three in a 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday afternoon. After allowing just three in his first eight games of the season, he's yielded 12 in his past eight outings. Chen tried to answer the question as honestly as he could, but the truth is that he doesn't know why he is suddenly elevating pitches and why the opposition - including a struggling offense like the Rays' - now is making him pay. “For every game, you don't want to give up any home runs.

When first-time House candidate Jonathan Goff Jr. was learning how to fill out a campaign finance report, an official at the Federal Election Commission handed him a sample filing from one of the most prominent members of Congress. The name stamped on the front: Eric Cantor, the Virginia Republican and then-House majority leader. "I was astounded," said Goff, who is running against incumbent Republican Rep. Andy Harris in Maryland's 1st Congressional District. "This was big money.

Item: Washington is abuzz with the shocking defeat of House majority Leader Eric Cantor in a Republican primary. David Brat, a tea party-inspired college professor with little money but plenty of energy, pulled off the historic upset. Most of the mainstream media coverage focused on Mr. Cantor's support (albeit tepid) for a set of immigration reform principles that some on the right interpreted as "amnesty" - and that such support was the primary cause of his loss at the hands of an unknown, underfunded candidate.

Freud once said the greatest works in literature involved parricide: “Oedipus,” “Hamlet” and “The Brothers Karamazov. " I'm not arguing that George R.R. Martin's “A Storm of Swords” should be placed in that canon. But I am arguing that when Tyrion kills Tywin in Sunday's “Game of Thrones” the show is invoking some major literary themes. Season 4 of HBO's “Game of Thrones” came to an end with a strong episode titled “The Children” that culminated with the murder of the Lannister family patriarch, who was killed (embarrassingly)

The principals of the Towson-based development firm, who have deep roots in the region, have drawn on those ties to build political and financial support for large-scale projects. Its latest proposal would plant a $250 million mix of offices, apartments and stores between Federal Hill and M&T Bank Stadium.
