Destinations Years ago when I interviewed Olympian equestrian Joe Fargis who said he had a horse ranch in Middleburg, Va. Without looking it up on the map, I assumed it was a few hours away. A few weeks ago, I drove there and found out it's only a 45-minute drive; but once I got there, I did feel like I was hours away from Beltway and city traffic, hectic work schedules and deadlines. My destination was the 340-acre Salamander Resort and Spa, which opened August 2013 in Middleburg and is definitely designed for relaxation.

SPENDING AN EVENING relaxing in our back yard has become interesting this summer. We've had our usual crop of ants and beetles, but the population explosion of mosquitoes has everyone smearing on the bug repellent.In the past, we have survived with just a light coating of mosquito repellent. Citronella candles and torches provided extra protection against the hungry pests and added a relaxing, festive glow. We grilled, swam and ate in relatively bug-free peace.Not this year. Experts warned that we would have a bumper crop of bloodthirsty bugs this year, and boy were they right.

Everybody needs to recharge their batteries once in a while - to get away, slow down, take a few deep breaths. But not everybody wants to do it the same way. Some want to be pampered in luxury. Others would rather wander through wooded trails. Others could think of nothing better than guided spiritual retreat with like-minded pilgrims. Fortunately, you can find any of these options in Howard County, where a variety of facilities offer an array of retreat spaces for the weary, burned-out seeker of solace.

Baltimore CFLs coach Don Matthews has dubbed the day dTC before each game "Hat Day," and yesterday's session at Memorial Stadium included some creative attire.Offensive lineman Shahriar Pourdanesh has been the most outrageous. Two weeks ago, he wore a jock strap on his head. Last week, it was a red bra. And yesterday, in what could be termed a more conservative look, he wore a miniature Florida Marlins baseball cap, attached to a long string, which tied under his chin."I've already got next week's planned out," he said, "but it's got to be a surprise.

The obligatory spilly breakfast in bed, a church service, a crowded restaurant for brunch or dinner and a special outing can leave mom pleased but worn out from all that loving.

For two busy surgeons, the home they have created offers a serene retreat at the end of the day. Troy Pittman's and Michael Somenek's sleek condo at the Ritz-Carlton Residences provides a chance to relax and renew mind, body and spirit. The couple achieved this level of comfort with a simple design style: a clever use of natural and artificial light along with neutral decor and a discriminating use of color. One of their first tasks after moving in was to place every light switch on a dimmer.

After a miserable first half that left the Comcast Center crowd palpably restless, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon might have gone off on his team. He's a perfectionist, after all, and the Terps had seemed listless in the first half of a critical game against Notre Dame. Turgeon said Maryland guarded poorly (“we couldn't guard a simple down screen”), shot poorly (32.4 percent) and trailed 34-25. But Turgeon - who has been known to stomp his feet in frustration - went the other way. He told his team to relax.

The politics surrounding marijuana in Maryland have come a long way during the last few years. A law allowing token penalties for those who claimed medical reasons for using the drug was controversial less than a decade ago. Now the state is launching a medical marijuana program, and the state Senate easily passed a bill this year decriminalizing possession of small amounts of pot for any reason. Now, with polls showing a majority of the state favors outright legalization, a gubernatorial candidate is making a regulation-and-taxation scheme part of her platform.

Americans are a bunch of lazy layabouts who don't want to work and would rather live off the taxes generated by the toil of their countrymen. I hear some version of this rant repeatedly from people who believe that the American work ethic disappeared at some point in the past generation. Here on gorgeous Cape Cod, where I vacation, I've been thinking about the state of American work and workers. So let's clear up a few matters. First, American worker productivity is high and continues to rise.

On July 23, the Maryland State Board of Education preliminarily approved new public school discipline regulations aimed at generally reducing suspension rates as well as racial disparities in suspension rates. Public comment will be solicited on the proposed regulations, and the board will vote in early December. Concerns that minority students are suspended several times as often as whites have lately prompted a number of jurisdictions to consider relaxing discipline standards. The approach is consistent with a near-universal perception, promoted by the Departments of Education and Justice, that stringent discipline policies lead to large racial differences in discipline rates.

A federal court on Monday rejected political consultant Julius Henson's appeal of a $1 million civil judgment against him for an illegal Election Day robocall. The U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a decision that Henson, his company, Universal Elections Inc., and an employee violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act with a November 2010 automated campaign message to more than 112,000 Democratic voters in Maryland. In the case brought by Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler, the state argued that the call was designed to suppress black votes.

Maryland's second-highest court upheld on Monday political consultant Julius Henson's conspiracy conviction in a robocall scheme that prosecutors said was designed to suppress black votes. The Maryland Court of Special Appeals reaffirmed the conviction, writing that the case "presents us with a sad tale. " A judge wrote that Henson "and his collaborators callously attempted to manipulate members of the electorate. " Henson, 64, was found guilty in May 2012 of conspiracy to violate election law by not including an authority line from a robocall used as part of the campaign to elect Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. Erhlich lost the election to incumbent Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat.
