Steel yourselves, ladies. Words like rollers and setting are about to re-enter your beauty vocabulary.Hair is getting longer, softer, wavier and curlier. The pretty, girly-girl locks of the '50s and '60s are back, but with one big difference, thanks to new hair spray formulations.Retro hair won't feel like a boat pillow without the cover. It will feel good, look soft to touch, and, according to Charles Booth of La Coupe, it will have "memory." Which means that after being caught in a high wind, hair will snap back into place.

In roller derby, a name says it all. The Hazard County Hellions, Harford County's only roller derby team, chose a name that seems wild and mischievous, a stark contrast to the responsible citizens who form the team. In this sport, theatrics are just as much a part of a match as athletics, and its players, no matter how shy or timid they seem by day, take on sassy, aggressive alter egos when they lace up their skates. Formed in 2013, the co-ed team is part of MADE (Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor)

Few players can torment a fan base like quarterback Joe Flacco. Sunday afternoons in Baltimore during the NFL season have become an elevator ride of emotions with No. 5. We cheer him. We boo him. We love him. We hate him. Sometimes he has the arm strength of Vinny Testaverde and other times he has the brain of Kyle Boller. The suggestion here is for Ravens fans to sit back, fasten their seat belts and get the cat out of the room so you don't kick it. And, just enjoy the ride because no one knows where it's going to end. Despite playing a poor first half Sunday in the season opening loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Flacco almost rallied the Ravens from a 15-point first half deficit by throwing for 271 yards in the second half including an 80-yard touchdown pass to receiver Steve Smith with 5 minutes and 46 seconds left in the game.

It was getting too dark for Little Italy's boccie rollers to play their game on the city's Stiles Street courts late into the night. The lights weren't bright enough anymore, with leaves from the court's trees casting shadows all over the place. So they installed brighter ones. The lights have shattered a relative peace that has long existed among neighbors in this corner of Baltimore. Put up without a permit or permission, the glare from the lights was so strong that one neighbor had to staple black trash bags over her 10-year-old son's window so he could sleep at night.

As three lawyers for Maryland Live casino entered a federal courtroom Friday morning, it seemed that a list containing information on hundreds of high rollers was on the line, a trove they suspected had been taken by a former employee who had left for a competitor. But as the morning wore on, documents established that the lawyers' problem was considerably smaller. Helena Wong, a former host at Maryland Live, had emailed just 19 elite players. And Wong, who now works at Baltimore's Horseshoe casino, testified that she had gathered the names gradually in the course of her job and had not pulled off a grand heist before leaving.

Maryland's largest theme park is about to take a new roller coaster for a spin. Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro on Saturday launches Ragin' Cajun, a ride that is billed as the first of its kind at the park. At just over 40 feet, the ride isn't the tallest but it offers riders a different kind of thrill. Its "uniquely designed train cars" spin 360 degrees, traveling in circles along 1,378 feet of track. “There's nothing quite like Ragin Cajun anywhere in the region. With its twists, turns, dips and spins, Ragin Cajun is going to be the best new ride of the summer," said Rick Howarth, park president.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is largely the reason that free safety Michael Huff lost his starting job with the Ravens. Now, he's the reason that Huff will get a chance to play in the Super Bowl. It's been a rollercoaster season for Huff, the former first-round pick who signed a three-year, $6 million deal with the Ravens in late March to replace long-time star Ed Reed . However, Huff started just one game with the Ravens before he was demoted, a result of getting repeatedly torched by Manning and company in the Broncos' regular-season opening 49-27 victory over Baltimore.

It's one of those big, plush rock and roll dreadnoughts, and it's slipping down Interstate 95 toward Baltimore like a silver dollar skipping over water. This baby has everything: designer Venetian blinds, real wood paneling, two VCRs, tres chic bathroom tile that overflows into the main aisle right up to the wet bar. There are a dozen cozy bunks, a full-length mirror and, of course, rock and rollers.In this case, very hard rock and rollers: a tattoo-ridden, all-male trio of Blackhearts with large hair, excellent sunglasses and a drummer with a ring in his nose.

Atlanta.--Sunday morning in my hotel lobby I was approached by more than 20 people offering as much as $3,000 for a pair of tickets to the Super Bowl game.Sadly, I had given my extras away and had nary a ticket to sell to the men in broad hats and studded boots -- guys who looked like high rollers. ''Sorry'' was all I could say to the lawyers and bankers and small businessmen from Buffalo, Rochester and other New York towns who just had to see the Buffalo Bills erase the stigma of being automatic losers in the great football extravaganza.

As the end of 2013 approaches, seldom has a domestic issue so dominated the political center stage as Obamacare did this year. The president's health-care insurance law has ridden a policy roller-coaster and will still have a huge question mark hanging over it in 2014. From the very start of Mr. Obama's presidency, the Republicans in Congress took dead aim at what became the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama was able to get it enacted only with solid Democratic support in 2010, while his party was still in control of both the House and Senate.
