Next week will mark one year since North Carolina teenager Phylicia Barnes, later found dead in the Susquehanna River, disappeared while visiting relatives in Baltimore for the holidays, and the anniversary is triggering renewed interest. Investigators have been tight-lipped, with little developments since the summer, when The Sun first reported on July 7 that the FBI was seeking access to Facebook accounts as part of a child pornography investigation. Anticipating media inquiries, Maryland State Police sent out this statement today describing the investigation as "actively continuing" but declining to reveal any progress: INVESTIGATION OF THE MURDER OF PHYLICIA BARNES CONTINUES (BALTIMORE, MD)

Columnist Thomas F. Schaller's sobering commentary on American politics concludes that the deep divisions between blue and red states may require Washington to shift more power back to the states and allow voters to "more closely tailor policies to their partisan liking" ( "Adapting to a politically divided nation," March 18). Notwithstanding a concession of power by Washington, we are already seeing states like Maryland take the initiative with respect to issues of importance to its voters.

No one expected Brian Roberts to throw down the gauntlet on Friday and set a date for his return to the Orioles lineup. No one, really, expected any hard answers about his recovery from multiple concussions. It's not that kind of thing. The finish line is a moving target, so the most Roberts was willing to say during his news briefing after the Orioles' first full-squad workout on Friday was that he is getting closer to it -- if only inch by inch - and he is encouraged by his recent progress.

The Ravens are trying to reach closure on left tackle Jonathan Ogden's contract extension, as both sides will continue to talk over this weekend. Marvin Demoff, Ogden's agent, and Pat Moriarty, the team's chief negotiator, have exchanged several proposals, and the team reported yesterday that progress has been made. But the Ravens wouldn't commit to having a deal reached in the next few days. One Internet report speculated that the extension could be worth close to $28 million over four years and include a signing bonus in the $12 million range.

Second baseman Brian Roberts will be in uniform when the Orioles take the field for their first full-squad workout Friday at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, but it remains to be seen how much he will be able to participate in the early drills. Manager Buck Showalter met with him on the field after Thursday's final pitcher-catcher workout and said the progress that Roberts has made in his recovery from two concussions has been “very encouraging.” “We'll see what tomorrow brings,” Showalter said.

Wide receiver Lee Evans, who was inactive against the St. Louis Rams because of a left ankle injury, said that he is making definite progress, but not enough for him to say for sure that he'll be out there Sunday night against the New York Jets.  "Obviously, it feels better now but you can't say it's all the way back," said Evans who didn't participate in this morning's walk through. "We're still going to take it one day at a time and be smart heading through this week and heading into the bye week.

How is it really going in Afghanistan? In his recent testimony before Congress, Gen. David Petraeus reported substantial if fragile progress and conveyed a can-do attitude reflecting confidence about our prospects. Yet press reports and other organizations and individuals on the ground seem to grow more dispirited by the month. Are they looking at the same war? They are. But they apply very different standards, and so they reach very different conclusions. Soldiers are trained and equipped to fight.

So apparently, Barack Obamais finally done evolving. That, you will recall, was the president's word for the process of reconsidering his opposition to same-sex marriage. Last week, after being publicly and inadvertently (?) prodded by his vice president, Mr. Obama announced the results of all that cogitation. He told ABC News he has "just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married. " It was a historic statement from a historic president, a moment of political courage from an administration that has provided fewer such moments than you would like.

Bobcats @Wizards Saturday, 7p.m. TV: Comcast SportsNet His return was somewhat unexpected and his contributions were greatly accepted, but after making his season debut Wednesday night, Nene was dejected. All season, the Washington Wizards big man had to be the one to console his distressed teammates after disappointing losses, providing encouraging words to keep them motivated. But after the Wizards suffered a heartbreaking 101-100 overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday — a defeat in which they led with 7.3 seconds left before Hawks guard Kyle Korver hit a go-ahead 3-pointer, and led again after time expired before referees waved off a tip-in at the buzzer by Martell Webster — Nene had little to say. His left knee wrapped in ice and his sore left foot resting in a bucket of ice, Nene stared at nothing in particular in a stunned silence, wondering how his team could be 0-10.

Ordinarily, a four-game upswing in the win column would be cause for delight. But even after rebounding from a 6-9 overall record in 2011 to go 10-6 this past season, St. Mary's isn't fully satisfied with the program's growth. In fact, coach Chris Hasbrouck said the coaches and players won't be content until they break the seal and capture the program's first appearance in the NCAA tournament. “They're not going to be satisfied until we make the tournament,” he said. “That's what they've put on themselves, and I wholeheartedly agree.
