As the school year ends, teachers reflect, reminiscing about their favorite students, reveling in their successes. Nostalgia lingers as books are packed, lessons stored, and students' notes of appreciation are scanned and filed on a flash drive as "artifacts" - an outcome of the Common Core. While this year brought complaints from colleagues over everything from teacher accountability to lavatory access during school reconstruction, I realize my year lacked something much more poignant than political policy or bladder relief: chalk.

Three fingers in the air to signal your call, The no-huddle offense is moving the ball. The defense is surging, we hope for no sack Of our beloved Ravens quarterback! Fickle fans booed you at M&T, But you came back strong and convincingly. From the shotgun, and on the run, You looked downfield for Dennis and Anquan. Relentlessly you brought us back, Our faithful Ravens quarterback! In cold, cold Denver and at one mile high, You said, with under a minute, "Never say die!"

U is for understands as in she understands what her constituents want. R is for rewarded as in Maryland will assuredly be rewarded in making her our next governor.

The weatherman says, "…we're in for some snow!" Don't know how much yet, still a few days to go. The "event" edges closer, everyone starts to perspire As predicted accumulation goes higher and higher. The first snowflake falls. Traffic comes to a halt. Home Depot's been raided of shovels and salt. But snuggled at home, anticipating the storm, We've got milk in the fridge, firewood to keep warm. I wake the next morning, and blink my eyes hard At the blanket of snow on our house, cars and yard.

Iowa steak fries, gay rights rallies. Your personal holy grail, a national prize awaits, you think, while your Maryland constituents wonder aloud, where is that fink? Whatever happened to making the land of pleasant living a place so desirous, and a governor whose so-called intent was to inspire us? A once-proud state is now very divisible, while your aspiration to higher office has made you quite invisible!

"The glory and the freshess of a dream . . ."-- William Wordsworth, from his ode on immortality, 1807If, after having been cut by the Baltimore Orioles, Dave Johnson needs help finding consolation, he can turn to Wordsworth, who, though an unlikely locker room companion, can comfort any hard-luck baseball player with his intimations on passing glories. Jim Palmer should have read it years ago.Wordsworth's ode might be a bit grandiose for the fine, good men who sat through the summer at my favorite bar in Govans, necks craned to the overhead TV, grumbling about the Orioles and cursing the terrible pitching staff, which included Dave Johnson in a particularly lousy performance as the struggling artist.

LAUREL -- A typical response of French visitors i International Village the past week has been a shrug of the shoulders with one hand pointed forward, palm down, then jiggled so that at first the thumb is elevated, then drops as the little finger goes high.The gesture seems to suggest a meaning of "so-so," or mayb"no real feeling." Then again, few of the French horsemen at Laurel Race Course for the $750,000 Budweiser International today are able or willing to speak English, and often hide their feelings behind the language barrier.

Although I have lived in New Jersey for nearly 60 years, I still explain my strange loyalties by saying "You can take the boy out of Baltimore, but you can't take Baltimore out of the boy. " While I left Charm City for good in 1955 (long before the advent of that moniker), I still subscribe to Major League Baseball's Extra Innings so I can watch the Orioles on TV all summer. And for years I tried to put a hex on the Indianapolis Colts for sneaking out of town with our name in he middle of the night.

I will be voting in favor of gay marriage come Election Day. Here are my sentiments on the subject in poetry form. Ah, this too shall pass - all the fuss about marriage. Cast to the dogs everyday - that institution - by married men and women - fighting over children like dogs barking over bones - fighting over house keys, car keys, bank accounts - airing tons of grievances for onlookers and lawyers as spectator sport before laying to rest in divorce caskets their vows - "In sickness and in health, for better or worse, for richer or poorer," a bunch of lies rolled out for the ceremonies in church.

Like a lot of people in Nagano, Rick Gentile hasn't seen the sun much recently, but that doesn't mean he isn't feeling some heat.Gentile, the executive producer of CBS' Olympic coverage, is taking some barbs from back in the United States over what the network has been showing so far, as well as some criticism over the number and placement of commercials during Friday's opening ceremonies telecast.To the first charge, Gentile, who will be leaving the network after the Games, pleads guilty, but with a good reason.
