Here's another thing: The attack ad on Larry Hogan that claims Anthony Brown's Republican challenger for governor wants to give a $300 million tax break to corporations at the expense of kindergartners - that's another stretch into the shady side by the Democrats, and for a couple of reasons. First of all, Hogan hasn't said any such thing yet, although, being a mainstream Republican businessman, he says he would cut Maryland's corporate tax rate, and we all know the story there: You can't be a Republican without saying you want to cut taxes.

COLLEGE PARK - Mark Turgeon's two distinct memories of Len Bias have lasted three decades. The first occurred when Turgeon was a sophomore point guard at Kansas, sharing the same court at the Greak Alaskan Shootout with a junior rising star from Maryland. "Dunked on him," the Terps coach joked this week. In reality, Turgeon recalled how the muscular, 6-foot-8 power forward scraped his head on the bottom of the backboard after going in for a dunk. "That was the first time I had seen that," Turgeon said.

Angel, an aging 17-year-old giraffe born and raised at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , was euthanized Tuesday, officials said. Angel long struggled with leg and back pain, which worsened recently, Dr. Ellen Bronson, the zoo's chief veterinarian, said in a statement. "While we were able to provide her with pain medicine which made her more comfortable, we realized that her quality of life was declining and the decision was made to euthanize her," Bronson said. She is the fourth older female giraffe to die at the zoo since 2008.

The number of young people arrested and brought to the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) is down drastically over the past 10 years. Fewer juveniles are being placed in secure detention facilities, and plans for construction of a new juvenile jail in Baltimore City have been shelved, at least temporarily. Some contend that the reduction in the numbers of youth charged and detained is more about revised policing policies than anything else. We've seen the end of zero tolerance, and "youth connection centers" (YCCs)

COLLEGE PARK -  On Saturday, Michigan coach Brady Hoke failed to immediately remove quarterback Shane Morris from the Wolverines' game against Minnesota despite Morris displaying concussion-like symptoms after a blow to the head. He then allowed Morris to re-enter the game a few plays later before finally being pulled from the game for good. In the days since, Hoke and Michigan have been the target of heavy criticism on a national level, and it did not help that Wolverines athletic director Dave Brandon acknowledged in a statement sent out early Tuesday morning that Morris has since been diagnosed with a probable mild concussion . Without critiquing Hoke or Michigan, Terps coach Randy Edsall laid out the team's concussion protocol Tuesday when asked how Maryland approaches players who display concussion-like symptoms.

If you thought the televised ads in Maryland's gubernatorial race seemed particularly negative recently, it's not just you.  New data released Tuesday ranked Maryland as having the highest percentage of negative television ads in any gubernatorial race in the nation.  The Wesleyan Media Project tracks all broadcast political ads in every statewide congressional and gubernatorial contest in the country. The group labels the content of each ad as either "negative," "contrast," or "positive.

We at Network 2000 are giving careful consideration to which candidate for governor is willing to make a sincere and honest commitment to the women of the state of Maryland. Recognizing that the next administration will have the opportunity and responsibility of appointing approximately 1,000 of Maryland's citizens to positions of authority, Network 2000 feels it is important for women in Maryland to have an equal opportunity and role as appointees. We, as an organization, raised our voice to challenge each of the candidates for governor to commit to having 50 percent of their gubernatorial appointments to commissions, committees, task forces, advisory boards and intrastate agencies be women.

Maryland senior inside linebacker Cole Farrand and junior kicker Brad Craddock were both selected for weekly honors Monday. Farrand became the second Terp in as many weeks to be named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. (Cornerback Will Likely won the award last week.) Craddock was the choice for the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Top Star of the Week. Farrand had 19 tackles, 1.5 tackles for a loss and a pass deflection during Maryland's 37-15 win over Indiana and helped the Terps limit a high-scoring Hoosiers offense to just 332 yards of total offense.
