Return Home

It was so quiet at BWI Marshall Airport Saturday morning, you could hear a little girl in pink singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" as she and her family awaited their luggage at Carousel 3. Unlike the two days leading up to Thanksgiving, when the way out of town was clogged and people were so uptight you could have driven nails with their bodies, Saturday was as relaxed as a pair of jammies with feet. Returning passengers congratulated themselves on their scheduling choice.

NASCAR driver Justin Boston watched his first stock car race in Dover, Del., and he'll be returning there Saturday - this time, behind the wheel. Boston, of Sparks, made his Nationwide Series debut in the 300 last Saturday in Sparta, Ky., finishing ninth out of 40 drivers, but his second race in the top-tier minor league series will be at a location closer to his heart. "It will be really cool to run there for the first time after watching there [while] growing up," Boston said this week.

The Orioles are back home after their first losing road trip of the season and will open an 11-game homestand Monday night against the Tampa Bay Rays. They still maintain a six-game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League East, but the standings have the potential to become bunched up again quickly. And Chris Davis continues to struggle at the plate. He was 2-for-22 with eight strikeouts in the six games in Chicago this past week. The Orioles scored just four runs in three games against the Cubs at Wrigley Field, including one run over a 16-inning span after Saturday's rain delay, and the offensive problems can't be pegged just on Davis.

SARAJEVO, Bosnia -- The most critical -- and probably least feasible -- part of the new Bosnian peace agreement is the right it gives refugees to return home.Few diplomats, human rights experts or refugee officials believe that the provision will work. Its failure would leave a festering sore that many predict will erupt into war again in a matter of months or years.A handful of "confidence-building" refugee-return projects have failed miserably in the past several weeks, with dozens of families blocked from going home.

Graduating from college marks a significant step into adulthood. So it may seem paradoxical that for many grads, moving back home immediately follows. About half of college graduates plan to return home at the end of school this year, according to a 2007 survey from MonsterTrak, a job search engine for students. The stampede home is not a new trend; an equal proportion of students said they planned to move home last year. And plenty of studies show that grads face steep hurdles to becoming financially independent, from student loan balances that average about $20,000 to rising rents for apartments.

Parbadee Ann Bisnath is finally going home. For 24 days - since a judge ruled that her ex-husband had threatened to kill her with a knife in front of their children but declined to order the man to leave the house they share - the Owings Mills woman, her son, two daughters and their Jack Russell terrier have been living with her attorney. They left their own home in late September after Baltimore County District Judge Bruce S. Lamdin refused to order Gordan Bisnath to stay away from his ex-wife and their house, even though the judge found that the man had previously abused Ann Bisnath and vowed on Sept.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- To the cheers of supporters who set off celebratory firecrackers and flung pink flower petals, the party of exiled former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto announced yesterday that she would return to her homeland Oct. 18. It is not known whether Bhutto, who has been in exile in London and Dubai for nearly nine years, would return as nominal ally or nettlesome rival of President Pervez Musharraf. Also not known is whether she might be imprisoned on active charges of corruption.
BEIRUT, Lebanon -- The Ethiopian Consulate was filled this week with young women, almost all of them maids and nannies trying to get back home. And at the Iraqi Embassy, yet another bus pulled up with poor laborers seeking passage back to Baghdad, hoping to return home even though it means returning to another war zone. Throughout the Lebanese capital, embassies and consulates are attempting to extricate fellow citizens from the fighting that began July 12. For Western nations such as the United States, the effort has involved the costly use of ships or helicopters.

Jose Camacho's goal seemed simple enough: Leave Guanajuato, Mexico, for Baltimore, work hard enough to earn $10,000 and return home after a few months. But once he reached $10,000, he yearned to make $15,000 or more. Before long, a few months became five years. Today, Camacho, 50, lives here with his wife and three children, and he earns more money laying cable than he could back home. The most important attraction for people such as Camacho, who enter the United States illegally, remains economic opportunity.

I said yesterday in the Coffee Companion, where every weekday we recap the local sports headlines, that the Orioles cursed themselves by saying a six-man rotation was a possibility. Well… - Chris Tillman failed to get out of the second inning for the second time in four starts, as the Orioles fell to Texas, 8-6, in the final game of their 11-game road trip . Needless to say, the team is ready to come home for a 10 games against the A's, Red Sox, and Blue Jays. - The Orioles didn't have a pick last night in the first two rounds of the MLB draft, but here's what their 2013 draft class is doing . - Maryland pitcher Jake Stinnett, who is expected to start Saturday in the school's first-ever NCAA Super Regional against Virginia, was selected No. 45 overall by the Cubs . - Stinnett's teammate, St. Paul's alum LaMonte Wade, has been a key cog of their Super Regional run with more than just his bat. - In some leftover news from OTAs, John Harbaugh had some praise for second-year defensive lineman Brandon Williams . - Plenty of Belmont Stakes advances, with rivals trainers explaining how California Chrome could lose , and other Triple Crown contenders who fell short explaining what the horse is in for. We also have our betting tips for Saturday . Can't stand the Heat - I was watching the draft, so I didn't see the basketball, but apparently the Spurs pulled the old "hot gym" trick on Miami in a 110-95...

City officials promised a doubling of security on the collapsed block of East 26th Street in Charles Village on Monday after two of its 19 evacuated homes were reported broken into. One homeowner reported $250 worth of damage to a window frame after he noticed his second-story air conditioning unit had been forced into the home, according to a police report. Residents of another home reported missing nearly $1,200 in cash and other personal items - including shoes, jewelry and a laptop computer - after it was determined there had been a break-in there as well.

The New Jersey high school senior who moved in with a friend after disputes with her parents and then sued them for financial support returned home Wednesday. I described this family drama in my Monday column. Rachel Canning, who left home in October, had asked a judge to require her parents to pay her Catholic high school tuition, her lawyer's fees, her college tuition and more than $650 a week in support. A judge had refused her request for immediate financial relief but had scheduled a full hearing on the matter for April.

A tiny landscape by Impressionist master Pierre-Auguste Renoir was returned to the Baltimore Museum of Art Friday afternoon - more than 62 years after the artwork mysteriously disappeared while it was on exhibition. FBI investigators drove to the museum on North Charles Street to personally hand over "Paysage Bords de Seine," museum spokeswoman Anne Mannix Brown said. The 1879 painting, which had been held for the past 16 months in a northern Virginia warehouse for safekeeping, immediately was whisked off to the conservation lab so that it can be examined for any necessary cleaning, stabilization measures, or repairs.

In his four years at Notre Dame, point guard Eric Atkins has gone from being a steady freshman who came off the bench for a veteran team to the unquestioned senior leader - and now unlikely leading scorer - on a young team searching to find itself in its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The 6-foot-2, 182-pound Atkins, who grew up in Columbia and played at Mount St. Joseph, recently saw his role change from facilitator to first option after Notre Dame's leading scorer, fellow senior guard Jerian Grant, was suspended by the university last month for an academic issue.

Local product Gavin Floyd might not pitch in a major league game until May after having elbow surgery last season, but the prospect of his healthy return in 2014 was enough for the Atlanta Braves to sign the free-agent right-hander to a one-year, incentive-laden contract, the club announced on Monday. Floyd, a Mount St. Joseph product and former Severna Park resident, will make $4 million in base salary and could make as much as $4.5 million more in incentives, according to multiple reports.

Have you ever noticed that no matter how late you call home or return home, when you have left the children in the care of their father, they are still not in bed?Have you ever felt that you might stay out all night, return home at dawn and find the kids still awake?So, as you might guess, I was not surprised to call home from work one night at 10:30 and hear the sweet voices of my children in the background."What are the kids doing still awake?" I asked."We're playing strip poker," was my husband's response.

Lexington is a handsome little village with good buildings. - Isaac Burr, traveling in Virginia in 1804 The night was dark, the narrow country road deserted. The lights from the few houses along the way looked like distant stars. I'd never been to Clark's Lumber Yard, but I'd heard things got hopping out there on Friday nights. The Saw Mill Band, led by 82-year-old Bruce Clark, started playing at 7:30 p.m., and the dancing started at 7:31. Or so I'd been told. Quite frankly, I couldn't imagine anything "hopping" down this remote road, 15 miles north of Lexington, Va., in rural Rockbridge County, except maybe a frog or two. But then again, the Lexington area can surprise you. Bluegrass and Bach mix comfortably here, and visitors will find a thriving intellectual community in the midst of a gorgeous rural setting.

Like that of many freshmen at St. Mary's College in Southern Maryland, Ryan Breymaier's dream of becoming a world-class sailor began at the mouth of the Potomac River, near where it empties into the Chesapeake Bay. It is there that the kid from Damascus who came to play lacrosse transformed into a man who dreamed of traversing the world's seas and breaking records. But Breymaier, a 1997 graduate with a degree in economics, paused his whirlwind life - now based in northern France - to return to the school that gave him his career, helping the Offshore Team of St.Mary's students race in this weekend's 40th Governor's Cup aboard the Yellow Jacket.

The city of Baltimore agreed Wednesday to pay $100,000 to a West Baltimore family whose special-needs student died after falling from a moving school bus in 2010. City Solicitor George Nilson said school officials knew that Jeremy C. Jennings Jr., the emotionally disturbed 6-year-old, needed to be restrained on the bus but failed to do so. "A young, vulnerable child was sent off to school and didn't return home through no fault of his own," said Nilson, a member of the city Board of Estimates.
