The Baltimore Orioles have passed the mid-season mark sitting on a comfortable perch - first place in the American League East with a four game lead (five in the loss column) over the Toronto Blue Jays. It's difficult to know whether to be overjoyed or deeply suspicious. Oh, we knew the birds had the necessary credentials to contend for a playoff spot going into the season after a third place finish in the division last year and second place the season before. Not even the devastating injury to All-Star catcher Matt Wieters requiring season-ending Tommy John surgery could entirely dampen expectations of O's fans who have finally put all those years of last-place finishes behind them.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Service recently certified a new freshwater-division white perch record and an Atlantic division cobia record. On Sept. 5, James Stiars of Baldwin caught a 1.7-pound white perch in Loch Raven Reservoir, breaking the previous record of 1.62 pounds set by John Williams in 2008, also in Loch Raven. "It was my first cast of the day," Stiars told the DNR. "I was using a Shad Rat crank-bait, and I thought I had a largemouth bass on the line.

Cal Ripken Jr. has played 1,436 consecutive games, but Ernie Tyler's streak puts his to shame. Tyler, the Orioles' field attendant, has worked 2,499 straight games at Memorial Stadium. His streak began Opening Day 1960 -- four months before Ripken Jr. was born.Tyler hasn't missed a pitch from his stool on the third base side of home plate since the final days of the Eisenhower presidency. Spry as ever, he's still jogging fresh balls out to the plate umpire, still retrieving foul balls off the screen.

Over the past several days, the few paths through the snowy woods had become a dozen or so as handfuls of early season anglers made tracks down to the shoreline of Blackwalnut Creek, just east of Annapolis.The word was out: The white perch were in.Blackwalnut is a shallowbackwater with a channel to the bay wide enough only to squeeze through in a canoe or small jon boat. But late each winter, the perch congregate, and the fishermen come down through the woods as they do throughout the tidewater to creeks and streams.

The paths to the creek are well-worn this time of year, when the white perch are running and a bucket brigade of fishermen are chasing.And even in this broad, shallow Anne Arundel County backwater fed from the Chesapeake Bay by an entrance channel 5 feet wide at high tide, fishermen have been catching white perch and walking out with buckets heavy or stringers full."

"The perch run is on! I drove down to Allen's Fresh on Monday and really got into them. When can you get down here?" Danny Stevens excitedly asked over the phone.Unfortunately, work interferred with pleasure and I wasn't able to join Crownsville's resident yellow perch fanatic until last weekend. We put in a little more than an hour a little upstream of Slavin's Boat Ramp on the Mattawoman Creek before our five allotted yellow perch individual limits were filled. Despite a decent run, five perch is a sad commentary of the state of what often passes for great fishing these days.

The giant reindeer perched on the shopping center roof, a phone clutched in his hoof, his red nose glowing against the smudgy December sky. Beneath him, a line of children waited for their turn to step into the red telephone booth marked "North Pole" and list their wishes. It was a new experience for the children - most of whom had never seen a phone booth before - and for many of their parents. But for the grandparents who crowded the Talbottown Shopping Center on a rainy Friday evening, it was a re-creation of some of their most cherished childhood memories.

Lady Baltimore's moving plans have changed. Once she comes down from her 190-year perch atop the Battle Monument overlooking Courthouse Square - the scaffolding is up and the project is underway - she will take up a new, indoor residence at the Maryland Historical Society Museum and Library in Mount Vernon, society officials said. An earlier plan to relocate the marble statue, which honors the Battle of North Point and the bombardment of Fort McHenry in 1814, had called for it to be relocated to the Walters Art Museum , but Lady Baltimore was too heavy for the museum's floors.

Scientists have found reproductive abnormalities in yellow perch in three Maryland rivers that are either heavily suburbanized or rapidly developing, which they say helps explain why the distinctive black-striped fish are not thriving in those Chesapeake Bay tributaries and may be linked to toxic pollution. Significant numbers of eggs produced by spawning female perch in the Severn and South rivers in Anne Arundel County and in Mattawoman Creek in Charles County failed to develop completely, according to a three-year survey conducted by federal and state researchers.

When Maureen Neunan's only child headed off to college halfway across the country, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom Ellicott City house where the two lived suddenly seemed enormous to the 56-year-old divorcee. "I decided this was not where I wanted to be," she said. "I didn't need big or grand anymore. " And so she and her friend, real estate agentr Carol Walters of Long & Foster's Columbia office, paid a visit to the Ritz-Carlton Residences at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Neunan recalled visiting the unit she bought at first sight.

When Katie Byram and her family moved to a 1920s farmhouse in Baltimore County, they were charmed by its old-fashioned wraparound porch. Only one thing would make it even better: a porch swing. "I knew our kids would enjoy it," said Byram, who tapped interior designer Katherine Crosby to sketch plans for a "bohemian" seating area. They envisioned teak furniture from Thailand, outdoor rugs, potted plants — and a dark wooden swing. While the project is still in the early stages, Byram is already dreaming of relaxing in the swing as it sways in the summer breeze.

Duke Nohe unhooked the fat 14-inch white perch from his spinnerbait lure, admired the catch and flatly proclaimed, "I fully believe that this is probably the best white perch water in the state."What Chesapeake Bay tributary were we fishing? None of them, but rather we were in picturesque Prettyboy Reservoir in northern Baltimore County.How those fish got from the Bay to Prettyboy is a mystery.The most popular theory is that the Department of Natural Resources either mistakenly or covertly planted them when they released hybrid striped bass in the reservoir some years back.

For the past hour, a cooling breeze had been rising from the south-southeast, well-spaced seas had been building and a wall of dark clouds over the western shore of Chesapeake Bay had obscured the sun.With two keeper rockfish in the cooler, it seemed wise to start the 20-minute run back to the dock from Bloody Point Light. Trimmed out at 25 knots, the center console rode easily atop the chop.The late afternoon had been fruitful. Rockfish and a handful of small blues had come readily into the chum line, and after a pair of 22-inch stripers had been put on ice, an hour or so of catch-and-release fishing had been busy.

The NCAA selection committee's decision to award the No. 1 seed to Loyola for the upcoming NCAA tournament was only the third time the program had received the top overall seed and first since 1999. Coach Charley Toomey said the No. 1 seed was a suitable reward for a team that had set a program record for wins in a season (14) and tied the best start in school history (12-0). “This is a tremendous feather in the cap for the young men in my locker room,” he said late Sunday night after the bracket had been unveiled.

One of the more remarkable traits of the Baltimore Oriole is its ability to make a home out of an odd collection of cast-offs and under-valued items — grass, bark, horsehair, wool, even cellophane and fishing line. And that's not the end of their cleverness. They are also acrobatic feeders who can snatch a meal from the most unlikely of sources. Perhaps it's only fitting that the Major League Baseball team of the same name has in the first month of the season demonstrated similar skills.
