Lee Evans did not catch a pass despite being targeted four times by quarterback Joe Flacco in the Ravens' 35-7 thumping of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, but that doesn't mean that the wide receiver was ineffective. Coach John Harbaugh said Evans' speed forced the Pittsburgh defense to monitor him closely, which carved out opportunities for his teammates on underneath and intermediate routes. "Lee opened up a couple crossing routes for us where he takes the top off the coverage, and if they don't run with him, Joe's going to throw to him," Harbaugh said during his post-game media session on Monday.

The Bel Air girls soccer team came at C. Milton Wright's defense with persistent pressure that came from everywhere in the first half. Freshman forward Alexcia Kraemer made sure the hard work paid dividends for the No. 5 Bobcats as she scored two goals before halftime to send Bel Air to a 3-0 home win over the No. 8 Mustangs. "Very early on, we had to adjust to the wet field," Bel Air coach Josh Clemmer said. "We kind of mishit a couple balls and that was almost a wake-up call for us. … As soon as they figured out to strike the ball solid and play the skip on the field, they pressured up. " The win helped the Bobcats move a big step closer to clinching the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference's Chesapeake division.

So far, 16 vehicles parked on snow emergency routes have been towed to the City Dock parking lot, Annapolis police spokesman Ray Weaver said. Free parking for city residents remains available at the three city garages until further notice, he said. Officials have asked that residents keep their cars off the street so that plows can get through.

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis waited nine seasons, 1,365 games and 5,966 plate appearances for his first postseason at-bat. The 30-year-old admits he was rather nervous when he stepped to the plate around 6 p.m. Thursday before a soldout, screaming, orange-towel waving crowd at Camden Yards. “Absolutely, I'd be lying if I told you no,” Markakis said. “That is part of the game, part of the job. It's a matter of controlling your emotions and staying within yourself on the big stage.” Markakis watched three pitches, two balls and a strike, before taking his first hack, smacking a 93-mph fastball from Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer straight back to center field for his first postseason single - and the Orioles' first hit of the 2014 playoffs.

Motorists along Route 24 in Harford County will experience new traffic patterns Wednesday as the state opens a nearly $40 million overpass in Abingdon, the major part of a three-year project that included improvements to Routes 24 and 924. The changes mean less congestion and a safer ride for the more than 65,000 motorists daily who pass through one of the county's busiest intersections. The Maryland Transportation Authority began construction on a 1.5-mile stretch of Route 24 from the Interstate 95 ramp to Route 924 in 2008.

AEGIS STAFF REPORT | August 21, 2013
As nearly 38,000 Harford County Public Schools students get ready to start classes for the 2013-14 school year on Monday, Aug. 26, a number of changes in school bus routes and policies have taken effect since last year. School bus schedules and routes for the 2013-14 school year were released last week and can be found on the school system's website and in print in the Wednesday, Aug. 21 edition of The Aegis. Among the changes are consolidating some stops into a single location, the elimination of door-to-school pickup and drop-off for countywide high school magnet program students and elimination of previous waivers that permitted some students to ride a bus when they would otherwise be required to walk because of the proximity of their homes to their schools.

Michael Phelps was largely forgiven for driving drunk near Salisbury University in 2004 because he was 19 years old. The charge was reduced to driving impaired, his record ultimately wiped clean by the courts. Five years later when a photo of him inhaling from a water pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana hit the Internet, he apologized again, and that incident blew over quickly as well. But what happened early Tuesday morning outside the Fort McHenry Tunnel was different. The man who possesses the most Olympic medals of any athlete in history failed a Breathalyzer test.

The energy company Dominion said Tuesday that it is exploring developing an alternate evacuation route for some residential neighbors of its proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas plant, prompting opponents to question anew assertions by the company and federal regulators that the facility poses no significant safety or environmental risks. Karl R. Neddenien, spokesman for the Richmond, Va.-based company, declined to offer details but said Dominion is "looking into" establishing an alternate route for residents living on Cove Point to get away should there be an emergency at the facility.

Chants of "Let's go Maryland" began to break out at Indiana's Memorial Stadium around the midpoint of the fourth quarter. Most of the Hoosiers fans had already cleared out by that point. The Terps will face some great challenges in the coming weeks. But Maryland was dominant in its first conference game as a member of the Big Ten, beating Indiana, 37-15, just a week after the Hoosiers upset No. 18 Missouri. Indiana (2-2) entered Saturday as four-point favorites. But the Terps (4-1)

In the past month, Johns Hopkins has routed Randolph-Macon (42-3 on Sept. 6) and Moravian (33-14 on Saturday). But the Blue Jays also had a 27-20 win over Centennial Conference opponent Susquehanna on Sept. 13 that was closer than expected. So which game is an accurate indicator of the Blue Jays' potential? Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff isn't sure. “I still think we're a work in progress,” he said Wednesday morning. “If we play a clean game with no turnovers and minimize big plays defensively, we can play with most people and certainly in our conference.

Tuesday morning in a coffee shop, I heard someone wonder why Brandon Finney, the Shock Trauma surgical technician who was shot to death Sunday night, had been standing near Lexington Market at such a late hour. What was he doing there at 11:30? The question suggested that anyone who ventured after hours near the city's historic market - notable for fresh fish and produce on the inside, and too many drug addicts on the outside - must be either up to no good or asking for trouble. But the answer, it turns out, was simple: Brandon Finney had been waiting for the bus. That's what most people do in Baltimore - the working, contributing, responsible people, that is, as opposed to the losers who degrade and debase the city with their guns and cowardice, with stupidity and recklessness.
