For the past 30 years, I've been urging my students to put themselves in the shoes of people who lived in the past. So why do we make fun of Americans who do that as a hobby? I'm talking about military re-enactors like Eric Frein, the 31-year-old man suspected of killing a police officer and wounding another at a state police barracks in northeastern Pennsylvania last month. A few weeks into the manhunt for Mr. Frein, news organizations reported that he played a Serbian soldier - "Istocni Vuk," he called himself - in a unit that re-creates Eastern European armies from the Cold War era. Mr. Frein studied Serbian and Russian languages and even smoked Serbian cigarettes, as investigators discovered when they searched his home.

Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

BOSTON - For several years, I've had a quote from the late Marshall McLuhan pinned to my bulletin board that says succinctly: "If it works, it's obsolete." This just about sums up my skepticism about technological advances. Progress is not the most important product, just my most complicated. So it is with great surprise that I finally found a piece of cutting-edge technology that actually changed my life. Or to be more specific, my mother's life. Six months ago, my mother was in TV hell.

Far be it from me to dispute so great an American observer as Faulkner, but sometimes the past really is past. Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, The Sun reported on Sunday, is thinking of creating a "cold case" squad that would reopen unsolved racial crimes from the civil rights era. The point would be to apply modern forensics, as well as our more enlightened sensibilities, to right the wrongs of 40-some years ago - sort of a CSI: Mississippi Burning,...

Everyone who moves here eventually hears the same refrain. I bet even the passengers on the Ark and the Dove, the first English settlers in what would become Maryland, heard it when they disembarked on the shores of the Chesapeake in 1634: "It used to be better." What is "it?" Well, just about everything - from the city when William Donald Schaefer was mayor to the Wellesley fudge cake that Hutzler's used to sell - that once was and no longer is.

New York--"Ionce had this feeling of walking down a street in Manhattan on a very sunny day, and I was thinking that at any moment I could be looking at a street in ancient Rome, or I could be looking at a street in 1921," Oscar Hijuelos is saying. "The thing I have been thinking about lately is the past -- yesterday was the past, and so was 3,000 years ago. To me, they exist in the same space."Oscar Hijuelos has this thing about the past. Not so much his past, though he's led a pretty eventful life, but the past in general.

"Can we learn from the past? My answer is yes," said Frank Stella, an artist who has been hailed for breaking with the past, including his own.And he didn't mean learn just from the recent past, either. He meant the past of Manet and Daubigny in the 19th century, and even the past of Caravaggio and Correggio centuries before that.In town to inaugurate Goucher College's 1991-1992 visiting professor series sponsored by his friends, the collectors Robert and Jane Meyerhoff, Mr. Stella yesterday afternoon gave himself briefly but intensely to a double interview.

DETROIT -- Buck Showalter has played postseason chess several times before, and like most participants as confident as he is, he has lost more times than not. But in the Orioles' triumphant American League Division Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the manager pulled all the right strings. Before the Orioles' series-clinching Game 3 win over the Tigers on Sunday afternoon, he switched the rotation, tabbing right-hander Bud Norris to start. And down to the final two outs, he veered from the unconventional, putting the winning run on base in the bottom of the ninth with an intentional walk before allowing closer Zach Britton to finish a three-game sweep of the Tigers.

Eight years ago, Dian Corneliussen-James had surgeons cut out half of her right lung, a risky procedure she believes saved her life. Though she thinks the surgery saved her from death from metastatic breast cancer , which had spread to her lung, she said she is "terrified to go off" the drug, Faslodex, that doctors say could be keeping her alive. Her survival has prompted doctors and others to call her and patients with metastatic breast cancer like her "outliers" because they don't know why some patients with the incurable disease live a long time.

The key offensive component to the Orioles' resurgence the past three years has been the ability to hit home runs. They're never out of any game simply because they can change the tone of it with one swing. The Orioles have hit at least 200 home runs in three straight seasons for the first time in franchise history. It's a big part of who they are, but as the club embarks on its second playoff run in three years, there is a question whether their biggest offensive weapon will work in the postseason.

The political practices of the Islamic State are terrifying: kidnapping, ransoming, ethnic cleansing and, of course, beheading. These people must be vanquished. But equally frightening is the group's key premise. Like many reactionary movements, ISIS feeds upon and nurtures the dangerous notion that somehow the world, or at least the parts over which they claim authority, can somehow be restored to an earlier, idyllic era — in this case, the 8th century. ISIS can chop off all the heads members want, but here's a newsflash for them: Try as they might to reverse history, time marches in but one direction.

A near doubling in Under Armour's stock price over the past year helped drive CEO Kevin Plank past Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti in the Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans. Plank is worth $3 billion, according to the financial magazine, up from $1.7 billion a year ago. He has climbed from No. 345 to No. 327 to No. 190 over the past three years. Bisciotti, whose wealth comes both from the Ravens and the staffing firm Allegis Group, is worth $2.6 billion, ranking No. 235 on the list.

To many, Annapolis is a Colonial town, with its 1700s architecture and its links to four signers of the Declaration of Independence. But the state's capital also played an important role in the Civil War - a history that may coincide with a controversial present-day development proposal. Local historians and history buffs believe they've found evidence that thousands of Union soldiers who had been captured and then paroled by the Confederates were once housed at a site off Forest Drive.

The past is taking over the present. Reflect for a moment on what's "new." The Dukes of Hazzard. VW Beetles. Chuck Taylors.www Then consider that "Dust in the Wind" by the '70s rock group Kansas is background music for a new car commercial. It's just the latest in a long line of recent rock 'n' roll sell-outs, but you have to admit it's kind of nice to hear it again. This year Hasbro Inc. introduced updated versions of classic board games like Twister and Candy Land, and sales skyrocketed.

Any discussion of the most effective left-handed reliever in the Orioles' bullpen always begins with veteran Buddy Groom. It shouldn't end with him. Has anyone noticed B.J. Ryan's turnaround? He went into last night's game against Seattle with no runs allowed in his past six appearances, and only one in his past 10? Taking it further, Ryan had permitted only two runs in his past 14 appearances covering 10 innings, lowering his ERA from 9.45 to 4.86. "When I was throwing a third of an inning each game, I thought it might take me three years to bring it down," he said.

Mount Saint Joseph's football team doesn't need a lot of time to score points. With Nevone McCrimmon in the backfield and Jimmy Moore, Jake Dahl, Calvin Montgomery, Nick Phelps, J.T. Uhler and Kyle Offerman up front, the No. 4 Gaels had no trouble getting off to a quick start at Loyola Blakefield on Saturday. On the Gaels' first play from scrimmage, McCrimmon raced 79 yards for the first of his four touchdowns. On the third play of the next drive, the senior running back scored from 24 yards out. In less than seven minutes, Mount Saint Joseph was well on its way to a 42-19 victory in the first Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game for both teams.

Wide receiver Deonte Thompson was cut by the Ravens on Wednesday, marking the second time in the past five days he's been released. The Ravens replaced him on the roster by claiming former San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Lawrence Guy off waivers. He was cut by the Chargers on Tuesday. The Ravens need depth on the defensive line with Chris Canty and Timmy Jernigan both dealing with knee injuries. Canty didn't practice Wednesday. Jernigan has a meniscus injury that kept him from playing against the Cleveland Browns and is still hoping to avoid surgery.
