Several toll lanes on southbound Interstate 95 prior to the Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore were closed Tuesday afternoon after a tractor trailer collided with a pick-up truck at one of the toll entrances. The accident, reported to Maryland Transportation Authority officials about 5:18 p.m., forced four lanes of traffic to be closed as hazardous materials crews responded to 20 gallons of fuel reported to be spilled on the roadway, said Tamory Winfield, a MdTA spokesman. No injuries were reported, but the lanes - No. 15 through No. 18 - could remain closed for some time, Winfield said shortly after 6 p.m. First Sgt. Jonathan Green, a MdTA Police spokesman, said the accident appeared to involve the tractor trailer, the pick-up truck and one other passenger vehicle.

When he first came to Baltimore six years ago, Towson University basketball coach Pat Kennedy figured there was a college summer league for his players to join similar to those in Philadelphia, New York and Washington. Kennedy was shocked to learn that there was nothing that closely resembled the Baker, Rucker or Kenner leagues that had become institutions in their respective cities. Kennedy made inquiries about starting one but never got far. "Summer leagues were pretty consistent, and, especially in this hotbed of basketball, I was surprised," Kennedy said last week.

As we entered Week 5 of our Moon Valley Farm CSA pickups, I realized two things have happened. First, I am not panicking as much about what to do with all the vegetables. And we're eating more cleanly. Not familiar with the term "clean eating"? Neither was I. It was one of those phrases that I'd never heard before and then suddenly it seemed like everyone was expecting me to understand it. When I filled out some paperwork at the Maryland Fitness Club a few months ago, for example, I was supposed to note how many of my meals each day were "clean.

Baltimore City workers will no longer accept appointments to pick up bulk trash, Public Works officials said Friday, making the popular service an early victim of the city's budget woes. Residents can still drop off items at any of the city drop-off centers; a list of them can be found at http://www.baltimorecity.gov. But because of potential budget cuts and loss of staff beginning in the new fiscal year, which begins July 1, officials said there may not be a sufficient work force to offer the service, even through the remainder of this fiscal year.

CHICAGO -- Consider the pickup, a workhorse given little respect.Popular culture has long perpetuated images of the pickup as the favorite mode of transportation for the National Rifle Association member, civil rights opponent, survivalist, Ku Klux Klan supporter and stereotypes of the rural inhabitant. Good only for toting hay or wooden crates -- or shotguns.No longer. Some 2,000 miles eastward in Detroit -- not to mention in Japan -- auto executives, demographic researchers and marketers know better.

As summer slipped into September, I realized I could no longer ignore the bounty of jalapenos in my refrigerator. I think I had about 24. I had lot of recipes that used one or two of the peppers at a time, but I needed something that would put a real dent in the supply. Jalapeno poppers came to mind. I'd never had one before, despite having lived most of my adult life in Texas, where the jalapeno is as common as Old Bay seasoning is in Maryland. I found a couple of recipes that looked interesting - one on allrecipes.com and one on simplyrecipes.com - and decided to try them both with some modifications.
