Your writer who calls for the repeal of Obamacare on its one-year anniversary ("One year later, time to toss Obama health care") needs to get with the program of the rest of the right wing. He has displayed his obsolescence in excoriating Obamacare. Rep. Paul Ryan, in his Republican budget proposal, assumed that Obamacare would do what it is supposed to do, namely cut the deficit significantly. Either Ryan must believe those figures must be true and tacitly endorse the estimated savings of Obamacare, or else it is just a smoke and mirrors act in order to justify even bigger tax cuts for the rich.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  STYMIE Holding, with Mr. Mencken, that "no man guilty of golf should be eligible for office of trust or profit under the United states," I am mercifully unacquainted with the terminology of the game and was unaware that the word of the week originated on the links in Scotland.  A stymie  (pronounced STY-mee)

On the same day The Baltimore Sun reported on the enormous size of Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's campaign chest, my wife, the registered Democrat in the family, received a four-page color ad trashing Larry Hogan. Seventy-some days prior to the election, the Maryland Democratic Party has chosen to trash Mr. Brown's opponent instead of highlighting Mr. Brown's qualifications and achievements. I don't mind the negative ads but this was overkill, too early in the cycle and wrong. Mr. Brown, you have been in the governor's office for a long time.

Editor's note: The Sun also plans to run an op-ed by Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan in the coming weeks.  This week, we marked the one-year anniversary of a lifesaving law taking effect, the Firearm Safety Act. But, Marylanders still stand at a crossroads between two very different futures for our state. In 2013, in response to the tragic Newtown school shooting and the all too common acts of gun violence on our own streets, we took real action to protect our communities by passing some of the toughest gun safety laws in the nation.

No. 15 Fairfield's 8-3 loss to No. 20 and Eastern College Athletic Conference rival Ohio State last Saturday meant that the Stags (11-3 overall and 4-2 in the league) finished in third place in the conference, one spot behind the Buckeyes (8-6, 5-1). And that means that the two teams will meet in the semifinal round of the ECAC tournament, which takes place Wednesday night in Denver. The quick turnaround doesn't leave coach Andy Copelan and the rest of Fairfield much time to make any changes in their game plan against Ohio State.

A candidate for Baltimore City sheriff is accusing an opponent and another man of taking his campaign signs from the windows of local businesses. In a complaint filed in Baltimore District Court, candidate Donoven Brooks said members of his campaign noticed that signs were missing from businesses along Washington Boulevard April 14. Brooks says store owners told him that opponent Richard Parker had removed the materials and handed out his own literature. Brooks also says he has security camera footage showing Rob LaPin, a Parker supporter and candidate for the House of Delegates, taking a campaign sign from a restaurant, tearing it apart and throwing it away.

The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Scienc e gave the two-term Democrat an award for his leadership in the long-running effort to restore the Chesapeake Bay and in committing the state to reducing climate-altering greenhouse gas emissions. "Governor O'Malley has listened to science in striving for Chesapeake Bay restoration and sustainable growth in Maryland," Donald F. Boesch, the center's president, said in a release announcing the award.  "His leadership in responding to climate change through energy conservation and transformation has set a national standard.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has endorsed District 2 Councilwoman Vicki Almond in the November general election - after backing her Democratic primary opponent earlier this year. It's known in political circles that Almond and Kamenetz don't always agree, and that became clear when Kamenetz endorsed Almond's opponent, Jon Herbst, in the June primary. In a press release this week, Kamenetz announced support for Almond as well as others in the northwestern part of the county: Sen. Bobby Zirkin, Dels.

TORONTO - We've reached the final game of the regular season, and we still don't know the Orioles' opponent in the American League Division Series. Both the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals lost Saturday night, so Detroit goes into the final day of the regular season with a one-game lead. If the Royals win and the Tigers lose today, the teams will play a Game 163 on Monday to determine the AL Central winner.  Before you ask, we also still don't know the start time for the first two games of the ALDS at Camden Yards.

TORONTO - Orioles manager Buck Showalter wants to see his collective group of starters in action today for the team's final regular-season game and last action before Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Thursday. Showalter initially wanted Alexi Casilla to start at third base today. He will play, but he will come in as a reserve. Ryan Flaherty will start at third base. So does that mean Flaherty will be the starting third baseman when the Orioles open the ALDS? Not necessarily.

Morgan State football coach Lee Hull has been seeing a little bit too much yellow for his liking. The Bears (2-2, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) nipped league rival Howard, 38-35, on Saturday, but not without drawing 10 penalties costing them 104 yards. It marked the third time this season that Morgan State incurred more penalties than its opponent. The team is averaging 8.5 penalties per game for an average loss of 77.5 yards. “I'm real concerned because that shows a lack of focus and a lack of discipline,” Hull said this week.

Though there still is a slight chance that the Orioles could overtake the Los Angeles Angels and finish the season with the best record in baseball, it's far more likely that they will be the second seed and will match up against either the Detroit Tigers or Kansas City Royals in the American League Division Series. So, who do you think would be a more vulnerable opponent? It might seem obvious, since the Tigers have all those great starting pitchers and the best middle-of-the-lineup hitter in the sport, but there are also reasons to fear the scrappy Royals, who have a terrific bullpen and a very balanced offensive lineup full of guys who find ways to win. Guess that's why they are battling down to the wire for the AL Central title.

When Morgan State tangles with Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State on Saturday, the Bears will see a familiar face - on the opponent's sideline. Donald Hill-Eley was Morgan State's head coach for 12 years, compiling a 59-76 record. His contract was not renewed at the end of the 2013 season, and Hill-Eley was replaced by Lee Hull, the former wide receivers coach at Maryland. Hill-Eley did not have to wait long for employment as Spartans head coach Pete Adrian hired Hill-Eley in March as the team's offensive coordinator.
