Frankly, we think the 2,500 young people who attended the psychedelic "rave" party at the Timonium Fairgrounds on New Year's Eve got ripped off. They paid up to $25 to dance to ungodly loud music and be dazed by whirling lights and slow-motion movies of waterfalls, and paid $3 or $4 more to drink nonalcoholic concoctions with names like Orbit Juice and Oxygen Cocktails.If getting disoriented was their goal, they could have done it for free -- by attempting to follow how Baltimore County handled the rave -- before, during and after.

With an expertly timed delayed blitz late in the first quarter Sunday, Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley shot through a gap in the Indianapolis Colts' offensive line. As quarterback Andrew Luck wound up, Mosley crushed him, popping the football into the air and into the arms of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for an interception. It wasn't the only impactful play the first-round draft pick and reigning Butkus Award winner delivered during the Ravens' 20-13 road loss Sunday.

Mike Gimbel, director of Baltimore County's Office of Substance Abuse, is worried about a 12-hour Rave party New Year's Eve that's expected to attract 2,000 teens and young adults from as far away as Montreal and Atlanta.Though advertisements for the party at the Timonium Fairgrounds say there will be no alcohol, Mr. Gimbel has asked Baltimore County police to keep tabs on the affair because of his concern that participants may bring hallucinogenic drugs and nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, which can be harmful.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons thought his team had a real chance to make a move on the Orioles in the American League East race coming back from the All-Star break. The Blue Jays were four games out of first place, but they were facing three struggling teams, two at home, while the Orioles had to start on the West Coast with the Oakland Athletics, the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners. The Orioles went 6-4 on that trip, won five of their next seven games and then took two of three from the Blue Jays in Toronto.

A rave party at Fort Armistead Park in Baltimore last weekend is being called a success not only by its sponsor but by nearby Anne Arundel residents dedicated to improving the park - trash was picked up promptly and few arrests were made. Community leaders said yesterday that Starscape, a nine-hour electronic music and arts festival that began Saturday night, hardly affected the park where 4,000 to 6,000 people from across the country gathered. "I think they did a beautiful job," said Gale Kooser, a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary who is heading a park cleanup this weekend.

Working as a librarian has taught former blacksmith and Vietnam veteran Walter Rave that the public often acts like a spoiled brat and that real librarians are servants possessed of virtue and valor.In a field that typically demands a master's degree, Mr. Rave has never taken a course in library science. And, though the public library he runs in Takoma Park has more than a few books, it really exists to lend tools -- belt sanders, drain snakes, lawn mowers, electric drills and long-handled spades.

TAKOMA PARK - Larry Hodes had the do-it-yourself concept, the steel pipe and all the time an early retirement allows, yet something was missing. He went looking for it on a recent Saturday at the local tool lending library. Where else to spend such a sublime spring day but inside a trailer the size of a large Dumpster, fenced in chain link and barbed wire? The sun didn't shine on these many saws and hammers, nor on the workbench where Hodes spent hours pursuing visions of a dolly to wheel his canoe from place to place.

Your browser does not support iframes. Nick Markakis has seen Adam Jones make his share of spectacular defensive plays over the years, so the right fielder might be the best judge of the center fielder's talents. And Markakis said after Monday's game that the double-play that Jones turned in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 9-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards might be one of the best he has seen his teammate make. With two runners on base and no outs, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria lofted a fly ball that appeared to be headed over the left-center field fence and into the Orioles bullpen.

Joe Theismann has certain characteristics he looks for when evaluating any quarterback. Size. Arm strength. Accuracy. The ability to throw on the run. There are others. To Theismann, Maryland's Class of 2015 quarterback commit, Gage Shaffer from Ridgeley (W.Va.), has a lot of those characteristics. "He's one of most impressive young men I've seen,” said Theismann, who played quarterback for the Washington Redskins from 1974-85 and has been an NFL analyst 29 years since retiring.

NEW YORK  - One of the first things Orioles manager Buck Showalter said to reporters during his pregame news conference Sunday afternoon was about right-hander Dylan Bundy 's outing for short-season Single-A Aberdeen on Saturday. "Bundy was good last night, huh?" Showalter said. Indeed he was. Bundy, 21, allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out nine in five scoreless innings against Brooklyn. Recovering from elbow ligament surgery last June, he has now allowed one run while walking one and striking out 15 batters in 10 innings in his first two rehab starts for the IronBirds.

Can we please stop holding the country hostage to crazy people? Every year a tiny number of mentally ill people go on horrific killing sprees. It just happened in California. I won't name the person because I think the media attention lavished on these horror shows encourages some of these young men -- and they are almost all young men -- to seek fame or validation through bloodshed. In an entirely human response, we get spun up into a frenzy of finger-pointing. In the aftermath of the Gabby Giffords shooting, many of the country's leading journalists and politicians suggested the former congresswoman was shot because of the "violent" political rhetoric of Sarah Palin, Rep. Michele Bachmann and other tea party-affiliated politicians.

The total attendance figure (13,741) was almost 33 percent more than the previous Fight Night record (10,267). The $1.182 million gate was the first million-plus night for the series.

Against Fordham, senior Peter Athens enjoyed the kind of outing of which quarterbacks dream. Athens set career highs in completion percentage and touchdowns in No. 7 seed Towson's 48-28 victory on Saturday in a NCAA Football Championship Subdivision tournament second-round game at Johnny Unitas Stadium. His 86.7 percent completion rate (13 of 15) topped the 76.2 percent (16 of 21) he completed in a 48-32 victory over Richmond on Oct. 26. And his three-touchdown showing eclipsed his previous best of two scores set three times earlier in the season.

We will know soon enough whether Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette strikes gold with the signing of former San Francisco Giants prospect Francisco Peguero, but Duquette is definitely making it clear how highly he thinks of the 25-year-old outfielder. Speaking with local media Sunday night here at the Swan and Dolphin Resort at Walt Disney World, Duquette said Peguero, who has started just nine games in the major leagues over the past two seasons, can be an everyday ballplayer at the big league level.
