Dominic D'Andrea has recently been to 13 cities as producing artistic director of the One-Minute Play Festival, but the place that really stands out in his mind? Baltimore. Sure, he's a hometown guy, but he seems to really mean it. "You'd be hard-pressed to find indie theater and arts groups as impressive as EMP, Single Carrot, Glass Mind, etc.," he said. "The guys just go for it. " And that's a good thing, since the 32-year-old Severna Park native is bringing OMPF to town for the first time this weekend (8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at EMP Collective, 307 W. Baltimore St., $15, empcollective.org )

Offering an emphatic response to what he perceived as an attack on his organization's integrity, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on Monday rebutted a recent report saying that the organization engaged in a “pattern of misinformation and misdirection” following Ray Rice's arrest in February. In an unusual, nearly 50-minute news conference that brought the national media to the team's Owings Mills training facility, Bisciotti again acknowledged the organization's faults in how it handled the fallout of the former running back's assault on his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator.

I hear people complaining all the time that there aren't enough hours in the day. Between working, sleeping, paying e-bills, answering emails, texting, household chores, commuting, fixing the car and dealing with idiots, the 24 hours of the day whirl by and there's no time to enjoy life, no time to relax with family and friends, no time to do the things we say we should do.

Let's face it: If you're going to book a trip at the last minute, you're going to get leftovers. As anyone who's been late for Thanksgiving dinner knows, if you dawdle, the choice bits are going to be gone by the time you get there. That doesn't mean there aren't bargains just days before departure, discounts on indulging your spontaneity. But the sorts of great deals that emerged in 2000 and 2001 are getting harder to find -- and many of those that remain have to be booked 10 days or so in advance instead of just a few days.

Workers stopped a leak in an old sewage main in southwest Baltimore Saturday, more than 18 hours after a rupture in the eight-inch pipe caused raw sewage to spew into the Gwynns Falls at a rate of 50 gallons per minute, according to the city's Department of Public Works. The break in the terra cotta main, in a wooded section of Leakin and Gwynns Falls park, was identified at noon on Friday, but crews did not begin working on the problem until daylight Saturday. The leak was difficult to reach because of large, downed trees, a department spokesman said.

CLINTON, Miss. -- MCI WorldCom Inc., the No. 2 U.S. long-distance telephone company, said yesterday that it will offer evening calls for 5 cents a minute, copying a move by rival Sprint Corp. three weeks ago.Shares of MCI WorldCom, based in Clinton, Miss., fell $3.8125 to a six-month low of $77.4375 in trading of 33.1 million shares yesterday, making it the most active U.S. stock.The drop is a signal that investors may be worried that the latest price cuts will hurt the company's earnings, although MCI said it could slash prices because the U.S. Federal Communications Commission recently lowered access charges, the fees that long-distance companies pay local phone companies to connect and end their calls.

Editor's note: This op-ed has been updated to reflect the correct spelling of Billie Holiday's name. The Sun regrets the error.  I traveled back to my hometown of Baltimore last weekend to reprise my role as that important historical figure, The Devil, in a rock opera about the Battle of Baltimore. This was the long-anticipated bicentennial performance of "1814!: The War of 1812 Rock Opera," a project some old friends of mine, Dave Israel and David Dudley, conceived in the bars of Fort Avenue back in 1992, before we had anything worse to do. They'd always envisioned mounting a spectacular, all-star production of the thing on the 200th anniversary of the bombardment of Fort McHenry, in the unimaginable science-fiction year of 2014.

Before Tuesday's showdown at Carroll County rival Liberty, Century girls soccer coach Sara Figuly rattled off a number of things her No. 5 Knights would have to do to come away with a win. Of utmost importance: playing hard and together for 80 minutes. Century, the two-time defending county champions and last year's Class 2A state winner, had to do just that to fend off a difficult challenge from the Lions. After Liberty tied the game with 16 minutes left in regulation, the Knights stayed poised and persistent - answering with two goals to come away with a 4-2 win that typifies their recent success.

Not sure what the over-under line was on the length of Ray Lewis's speech after the Ravens unveiled his statue on Thursday morning at M&T Bank Stadium, but no one was complaining after he talked for 31 minutes about his life, his family, his career and his teammates. Lewis has always been a great orator, so it was just a matter of striking the right balance between honoring his own legacy and honoring the other people who contributed to it. He did that well, recognizing important family members and pivotal figures in his career among the large group of invited guests that included the family of Johnny Unitas, olympian Michael Phelps and the mother of former Ravens quarterback Steve McNair.

Right-hander Jim Johnson worked out for the Orioles on Monday morning at the club's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla. He threw for about 10 minutes in front of minor league pitching rehab coordinator Scott McGregor and minor league medical coordinator Dave Walker. Buck Showalter said he spoke to Johnson on Monday, and the Orioles manager also spoke to McGregor about Johnson, who was released last week by the Oakland Athletics after compiling a 7.14 ERA in 38 games. “I think the mistake you make is thinking that you've got some magic dust that you sprinkle on him.

First the wind came, then the rain, and then the wait. While the Orioles waited through a 2-hour, 22-minute rain delay at Camden Yards, Sunday night turned into Monday morning. Inside the Orioles clubhouse, players kept watch of the clocks, ready to disperse across the country for the All-Star break after the game. “It was kind of crazy,” Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman said. “I made the joke, 'We're pretty much on the All-Star break. " Eleven minutes after midnight, the game officially was called, giving the Orioles a 3-1 victory over the division rival New York Yankees.
