Unless you suffer from triskaidekaphobia - the irrational fear of the No. 13 - you're probably looking forward to the new year. Most people do, as evidenced by the giant crowds that gather all over the world on New Year's Eve to celebrate its arrival. That's all well and good, but if you're a sports fan in this particular area, it's not quite that simple. There is a lot to look forward to, especially with the NFL playoffs set to feature both the Ravens and Redskins this weekend, but 2012 is going to be a pretty tough act to follow.

In less than a week, three bank acquisitions, one involving the parent of Baltimore County Savings Bank, have been announced in the Mid-Atlantic region. The burst of activity suggests the start of a long-anticipated wave of mergers. "The industry has been anticipating a tipping point in regards to mergers and acquisitions," said Anita Newcomb, a Columbia-based banking consultant. "Still, it's difficult to say if this is the tipping point. " At the end of March, Maryland had 77 banks, and only 14 had assets of at least $500 million, a size that many banking experts say is needed to thrive in a climate with increasing regulation and stiff competition.

After the events of Sept. 11, it might seem as if there is no place a person can go to get away from the onslaught of grim news. But locally, and in much of the mid-Atlantic region, there are many spiritual retreats that will welcome you and provide a quiet, temporary home, free from the news and disturbing images of terror and war. While these retreats are generally affiliated with a religious group, they welcome guests of all faiths. Most offer basic housing, an unstructured schedule and the chance to meditate, think or just quiet your mind in an out-of-the-way setting.

Mike Shaffer scooped up the basketball on the rebound, pivoted in his wheelchair and lofted a long, arcing pass to Robert Tucker as he streaked down the court. The ball bounced once. Tucker snatched it while guiding his own wheelchair and shot a layup. It was another two points for their team, the Maryland Ravens, as they cruised to their second win in a tournament game yesterday in Lansdowne. On the fast breaks, the pair make wheelchair basketball look easy, even graceful. As six teams battled through the 8th Annual Baltimore Invitational Basketball Shootout, the competition among players from around the Mid-Atlantic region was intense.

ADVERTORIAL CONTENT After what was easily the longest economic downturn in recent times, momentum is building and national headlines are trumpeting news of economic gains. In the residential housing sector, these swiftly-changing market dynamics certainly offer more opportunity for buyers and sellers than what we've experienced in recent years - but the recovery-driven changes in real estate have also left some consumers' heads spinning. In some areas of the Mid-Atlantic region, those who want to buy houses aren't always finding options that meet their needs at the price point they were expecting and sellers are sometimes surprised to find that their homes are on the market weeks or even just days before they receive offers.

This boxed wine, made in California for a Baltimore-based startup company and distributed in the mid-Atlantic region, fills a useful niche. In quality terms, it's a cut above most boxed red wines, though the price is correspondingly higher. And the 1.5-liter box — equivalent to two standard bottles at $11 each — fills a useful niche that that's been left vacant by most competitors. The company also makes a merlot and a chardonnay, each of which is equally worthy of a recommendation.
