Maryland's minimum wage will rise to $10.10 by July 2018 under a bill granted final passage by state lawmakers Monday. The measure goes to Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley for his promised signature. Raising the wage above the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour was O'Malley's top legislative goal during the final session of his eight years as governor, and in a statement he commended lawmakers "for giving so many Maryland families the raise they deserve.”  Maryland became the second state this year pass a hike to $10.10, the mark set by Democrats across the country seeking to address income inequality.

Beautiful September days are difficult for Basmattie Bishundat. Her son was killed on one 10 years ago. "Sometimes I hate those days," said the Waldorf woman, whose son, Romeo, was three days short of his 24th birthday when Flight 77 struck the Pentagon, where he worked. As she and other Marylanders gathered Sunday in Baltimore to dedicate the state's memorial to the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the weather abruptly shifted from sunshine to a rain that struck some there as absolutely fitting.

COLLEGE PARK -- After struggling through what he called "unacceptable" performances in the first two games of the season, Maryland football quarterback C.J. Brown declared: "As I go, the offense will go, I understand that. " Said last Tuesday without a hint of bravado, it's about as close to a boast the sixth-year graduate student can muster. Considering the way things started out for Brown and the Terps on Saturday, that statement could have bitten him. But it's also the truth, which, depending on how you look at Brown's performance in a 40-37 defeat to West Virginia (2-1)

Is Ocean City the most dangerous place to live in Maryland? Even more dangerous than Baltimore?

The meteor was visible across a dozen states, from West Virginia and Ohio to New York City and Massachusetts, according to reports made to the American Meteor Society . It produced a bright streak in the sky around 11 p.m., but few heard anything from it, according to the reports. It was large and bright enough from my perspective to mistake it for fireworks, but it was going downward," a witness in Westminster reported.

Baltimore and Annapolis are likely to suffer serious coastal flooding again before this century is over, and people and property in Ocean City and on the lower Eastern Shore face even greater risks as climate change accelerates sea level rise along Maryland's extensive shoreline, warns a new report. Drawing on new government data and projections, Climate Centra l, a nonprofit research and information group, calculates that 41,000 homes with 55,000 residents in the state are in danger under mid-range sea-level rise projections if storm-driven flooding surges five feet above the high tide line - which it did in the Baltimore area and elsewhere during Tropical Storm Isabel in 2003.

It's hard to imagine what the snarling football coaches of yesteryear — think Bear Bryant or Woody Hayes — would have made of the poetry on the helmet and sleeves of the uniforms the University of Maryland played in Saturday. But the Under Armour designers of Maryland's "Star-Spangled" uniforms, which highlight the Francis Scott Key poem "Defence of Fort M'Henry" in cursive, would like to think that the old-school coaches might have approved. The uniforms, which the Terrapins wore in Saturday's home loss to West Virginia, were intended to promote the team and inspire players and fans.

The bonus is a portion of nearly $100 million in grants the U.S. Department of Labor announced Monday. About $1.14 million of the funding is to help Maryland adopt new technologies in unemployment insurance programs.

"If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. " That little nugget of truth, also known as the "law of the instrument," can be applied to more than just tool selection. When it comes to some closely-held beliefs, people tend to see circumstances as frequently proving them correct - even when they do nothing of the kind. At least that might explain why a recently-released Gallup poll finding that 47 percent of Maryland residents would choose to move if they could - the third highest percentage among the states - is being cited by many as evidence of failed tax policy.
