Lingering effects of bad weather in the midwest a few days ago were fouling up travel out of Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport on Saturday, a spokesman for Southwest Airlines said. Dan Landson said the airline - with more daily flights out of BWI than any other carrier - was having to cancel and delay departures, as the system recovers from a snowstorm in Chicago on Thursday that grounded or delayed many flights into and out of Baltimore. Landson could not say what percentage of more than 230 daily nonstop BWI departures have been affected, but he did say the airline is bracing for further potential complications as extreme cold weather is expected to hit the midwest in the next few days.

Gov. Martin O'Malley rallied volunteers in Iowa and roused Democratic Party faithful in Minnesota Saturday during a swing through the heartland. O'Malley has embarked on a frenetic campaign to help Democrats across the country in the midterm elections and to help lay the groundwork for his own potential presidential bid.  "I'm going to be very blunt here," said Brad Anderson, a Democrat running to be Iowa's next secretary of state.  "There are few people that has been more helpful to Iowa Democrats in 2014 than Governor Martin O'Malley.

Yesterday's signing day found Maryland in a transition period in football recruiting. Not only do the Terps have three new coaching assistants but the program is looking increasingly at the Midwest for talent given its impending move to the Big Ten. Chad Wilt, the defensive line coach hired recently from Ball State, has been assigned ro recruit the Chicago and Indianapolis areas. Those were secondary areas for Maryland previously. "Coming from the Midwest, he kind of had some ties in those areas," Maryland recruiting coordinator John Dunn said.

MINNEAPOLIS - Such is the state of the 2000 presidential campaign in its final week that both Vice President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush have found themselves in Minnesota, where the Democrats have won nine of the 10 presidential elections over the past 40 years. Gore rushed here in the face of polls suggesting he might lose the one state that even Walter F. Mondale took in 1984. Bush came three days later, predicting "we're going to carry this state" and break the long Democratic hold here.

Maryland joined seven other Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states Monday in asking for federal help to curb air pollution from outside their borders, saying emissions from the Midwest and South are hurting their residents' health and their economies. The eight states petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency to require nine "upwind" states - Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Caroline, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia - to join an interstate commission that over the past two decades has yielded ozone pollution reductions in Maryland and other Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

Michigan, Louisville Coley Harvey Orlando Sentinel Many of us with our or trashed brackets want to see the lovable "Dunk City" contingent from Fort Myers, Fla., make the 10-hour trek up Interstate 75 for next week's Final Four. Conventional basketball wisdom, however, tells us that won't happen. No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast's Sweet 16 opponent, No. 3 Florida, is too strong for the Eagles; but not strong enough for the Michigan Wolverines, who will make this a three-Big Ten team Final Four.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports.   Maryland finally got an ACC road victory and has won two in a row. Are the Terps on the right track? Jeff Barker: They're getting better. But will their improvement be rapid and substantial enough for them to make the NCAA tournament field? You could argue that point either way. I suspect Maryland's NCAA possibilities will be determined by a string of close games.

Spotty rain this year has had parts of Maryland in and out of drought conditions, and the dryness may be worsening as the nation experiences its driest year since 1956. Anne Arundel County, Southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore are in moderate drought conditions, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor . To the north of the Interstate 95 corridor, most of the state is considered abnormally dry. Those zones have fluctuated through the spring and summer, with some portions of the lower Eastern Shore reaching "severe" drought conditions at times, according to the drought monitor.

As of midday Friday, forecasters at the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va., were uncertain that the Baltimore area would see any thunderstorms at all later in the evening. Without a cold front or a low-pressure system in place, they lacked the markers that would guarantee violent weather. If a disturbance did occur, however, all the heat and humidity in the lower atmosphere would serve as fuel. "We knew that any thunderstorm that did develop could become severe," said Stephen Konarik, a meteorologist with the weather service.

Our country has many problems. To list a few there are all the homes in the Midwest recently destroyed from all the tornadoes. Also, what about the future of Social Security and Medicare? How about all the homeless and hungry in our own country? How can we possibly find funding to help solve all these problems? Here's a better question: How can our president and Congress, in good conscience, keep sending $3.2 billion each year to Pakistan? I don't even know where they find this much money especially when all I read about is how the American public will need to bear the brunt of some historic budget cuts.
