Schmidt says that's a possibility and that residents should no longer shut their eyes to the fact.Mr. Schmidt's comments, in a written opinion approving a small retail center in Maryland Line, have angered many residents, who found his words insulting.

Millions in federal funds are to be spent in Maryland to help protect Smith Island, Crisfield and other coastal communities from devastating flooding like that caused by last year's Superstorm Sandy. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced Thursday her department would dole out $162 million for 45 restoration and research projects to help Atlantic coast communities fend off storm surges and rising sea level.  The restoration projects focus on shielding marsh and wetlands at wildlife refuges, but studies are to be funded that would improve flooding and storm resilience of coastal communiites as well.

Maryland Line Volunteer Company No. 45 was Bob Humphrey's home away from home. Humphrey volunteered at the firehouse for 27 years. When he was not responding to calls along the rural roads of northern Baltimore County, he and other longtime volunteers gathered in the firehouse, reminiscing. The firehouse has long been a center of community life in Maryland Line, whose 300 residents live along a 3/4 -mile stretch of York Road. Residents hold dances and bingo matches at the station. Many of the volunteers went to school together at Hereford High and live next door to one another.

I knew Stefon Diggs threw out the first pitch - it was high and wide - at the Orioles game Sunday at Camden Yards.  In his defense, his strategy was to aim high.  You never want to bounce one in front of the plate. “I think he tried to throw a cutter and it cut a little too much,” head coach Randy Edsall said. What I didn't know is that he met Orioles outfielder Adam Jones. “He said that's his favorite Oriole player of the current team. So he was jacked up about it,” said Edsall, who brought the whole team to the game.

As much attention as there has been surrounding the return of Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown from a season-ending knee injury a year ago, there's also been interest in those assigned to protecting him from their positions on the offensive line. Sophomore tackle Mike Madaras found himself talking to reporters after Thursday's open-to-the-media practice in College Park, but much of the attention evolved from a recent two-week suspension for violation of university rules. Madaras wouldn't talk about his transgression - politely redirecting inquiries to coach Randy Edsall - but said he will try to take positives away from it. Currently listed as a starter, the 6-foot-5, 295-pound lineman said, “I wasn't happy when it [the suspension]

The undisputed No. 1 team in Division I, Maryland is enjoying the fruits of its labor after Saturday's 12-10 upset of Loyola, the reigning national champion and the previous top-ranked squad. Off to their third 3-0 start in the last four seasons, the Terps are widely regarded as the team to beat thus far, but coach John Tillman wants to make sure that those accolades don't overinflate the players' assessment of their progress. “The confidence thing is always a tricky thing,” he said during his weekly conference call Tuesday morning.

Almost immediately after he pledged to Maryland last July, Kingsley Opara was listed by several recruiting services as a "soft commitment. " It was a label Opara -- for several months, at least -- found to be accurate. "I knew I was going to have a big-time senior season," Opara said. "Other schools would come and be attractive to me. I kept the door open if a school I really liked came. " The two most attractive schools to Opara were N.C. State and North Carolina. The three-star prospect said he liked the Tar Heels, but not quite as much as the Wolfpack, so he decided against visiting Chapel Hill.

As if Maryland's offensive line needed another issue, the Terps will be without senior guard Bennett Fulper for Saturday's homecoming game against N.C. State. Two other offensive lineman are also in the injury report. Sal Conaboy (ankle) is doubtful and Justin Gilbert (knee) is questionable Fulper has turf toe and also seems to have an ankle problem. He had started every game for the Terps this season at left guard. Junior Josh Cary is likely to take his place. Also out Saturday: safety Matt Robinson (groin)

If Davon Johnson of West Baltimore hits Saturday's $325 million Powerball jackpot, he wouldn't be the sort of tycoon who blends into the crowd. He'd hire a pair of bodyguards (California-based Platinum Protection Group charges $35 an hour for one unarmed guard), move straight to Beverly Hills (where the average house costs $1 million) and throw down cash for a jet (a 43-year-old Gulfstream at Aircraft Shopper Online can be had for $585,000, and prices go up from there). In fact, the more Johnson and his half brothers, Frank White and Meech Tucker, talked about all the ways they'd spend the cash, the more tickets Johnson bought.

Kelly Elizabeth Norton, 30, of the 900 block of Beaver Bank Circle pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in July after an autopsy showed she had given birth in July 2000 to a healthy baby girl who was breathing on her own before she was killed. Norton, who was sentenced Tuesday, received the maximum term for second-degree murder from Baltimore County Circuit Judge Thomas J. Bollinger Sr. Public defender Gayle Robinson said Norton had no prior criminal record.
