I went on YouTube to watch a gruesome video of a wild animal called a fisher, or fisher cat, attacking a silver fox - someone told me it would be educational, if you must know why - but I had to watch Anthony Brown tear into Larry Hogan first. It was a 30-second political ad that opened with a question: "Who is Larry Hogan?" and went on to say Hogan, the Republican candidate for governor in November's general election, opposes a woman's right to choose an abortion, even in the case of rape or incest.

A squirrel scurrying across home plate was the story of Wednesday's NLDS game in St. Louis. The critter has become an Internet sensation after it stole home on Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt, who got the loss as the Cardinals forced a Game 5 with a 5-3 win . OK, so it wasn't technically a steal of home because it ran down the first base line, but I think we can all agree the squirrel is still a smarter baserunner than former Orioles enigma Felix...

In the rare moments when he speaks candidly about running for president, Gov. Martin O'Malley uses phrases such as "fundamentally newer" and "new way of leadership" to describe his approach - language intended to highlight the data-driven management style for which he is widely recognized. But it isn't hard to read another, more subtle message between the lines: The young, guitar-slinging governor represents a more youthful crop of Democrats, while the presumed front-runner for the nomination in 2016, Hillary Clinton, might struggle to do so. As he winds down his final months in Annapolis and crisscrosses the country in anticipation of a full-scale national campaign, O'Malley has delicately tried to draw contrasts with the former first lady, senator and secretary of state without appearing confrontational - or even using her name.

By the time Graham Peck was halfway up Heartbreak Hill during the Boston Marathon, he knew he'd be all right. The Fells Point resident had gone into Marathon Monday with a goal of finishing the 26.2-mile race in 2 hours and 28 minutes. Peck, running his first Boston Marathon, had made it up and over several other hills in Newton, Mass., and knew this hill, the course's most infamous obstacle, would be his most significant remaining challenge. "I think, at that point, with about six miles to go, is when I felt, 'I'm not going to screw up too much here,'" he said Tuesday.

Mount St. Mary's is well aware that a win against Northeast Conference rival Wagner this Saturday propels the team into the league tournament as the No. 4 seed. But before the Mountaineers can focus on the Seahawks, they will get a visit from No. 8 Maryland, last year's national runner-up that will travel to Emmittsburg for a Wednesday night meeting. Mount St. Mary's coach Tom Gravante said the players should expect a very motivated Terps squad after falling to No. 4 Duke, 6-5, in Friday evening's semifinal of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament.

The roots of Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' development in running out of his team's triple-option offense go back to his own roots outside Nashville, Tenn. On a hot summer day when Reynolds was about 13, he joined his uncle and a group of older athletes Andrew Reynolds was training for a high school track team he coached. "I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'll just say I couldn't finish it," Keenan Reynolds recalled this week. "I was hyperventilating. He didn't take it easy because it was my first time out. He treated me like I was a seasoned vet out there.

As she enters her 80s, Margaret Himes looks to her garden for solace. She started the expansive garden behind her house in the fall of 1967, just a few months after she, her husband and their three children moved into the new home in Joppatowne. Himes and her then-2-year-old daughter, Patty, planted tulips in the backyard that first autumn. When they came up the next spring, Patty asked if they could plant flowers every year. Patty, who suffered from a congenital heart ailment, died later that year, but Himes continued to work in the garden.

Amelia and Thorpe Staylor's suburban garden began about 15 years ago when the former bankers downsized from a 12½-acre property in Havre de Grace to a quarter-acre lot in Abingdon. The smaller space gave them new opportunities to focus on garden design, Amelia Staylor says. But first, they had to solve the problems of a steeply sloping backyard that was susceptible to erosion. Their solution was to create three outdoor rooms and position higher plants on the downward slope. They also "borrowed" the landscape of a wooded common area to provide a backdrop to their design.

Q: An old but colorful Oriental rug covers our entrance hall, which leads to a wooden stairway, which is also in need of some kind of floor covering. We can't afford to buy antique Oriental carpeting for the stairs. Can you make an alternate recommendation that won't involve frequent maintenance?A: The category of "Oriental rugs" covers a multitude of styles as well as colors, so I'm not sure exactly what your rug looks like. I'll assume, though, that it's done in a large and geometric pattern with colors ranging from beige or red to deep blue, a fairly typical motif.

Polls may show him trailing, but Harford County Executive David R. Craig today declared himself the true front-runner in the race for the Republican nomination for governor. “In reality, I am the front-runner,” Craig told the Baltimore Sun editorial board. A poll conducted for the Baltimore Sun showed businessman and activist Larry Hogan has built on his lead since February and now is favored by 27 percent of likely GOP voters. His two closest competitors, Craig and Charles County business executive Charles Lollar, stand at 12 percent each.
