Maryland roadsides are abloom as never before.State workers and countless volunteers are planting wildflowers in grassy areas along highways that have been mowed in the past. Red poppies, black-eyed Susans, blue cornflowers are adding color to roadsides -- all this in the name of saving money.Since 1992, the State Highway Administration -- one of Maryland's largest landowners -- has reduced the number of acres it mows by 3,145, to 16,872 acres. "Mowed five times a year, that means a lot of time and money saved," SHA administrator Hal Kassoff says.

Do I need to keep weeding in fall? There are only a few little weeds, and wouldn't it be better to spend my time, say, pruning? A weed pulled in time saves nine - or 90. Many summer weeds are now loaded with thousands of seeds. Also, many weeds known as winter annuals start now and will explode with growth in spring. Hairy bittercress is one of these; it's is a tidy rosette now and almost a joy to pull, it's so easy. Because it has no seeds yet, you can throw it on the lawn and chop it up when you mow, adding organic matter to improve your topsoil.

Baseball's all-time saves leader Lee Smith, who retired from the Expos on July 15 because of a lack of regular work, apparently wants to return for a 19th season.The former Oriole, who will turn 40 in December, went 0-1 with five saves and a 5.82 ERA in 25 games in 1997. He has 478 saves."I just want to pitch," Smith told the Rolaids Relief Man program. "If Eck [Dennis Eckersley] can do it at [age] 43, I can do it, too.Smith added: "I was throwing 91 or 93 [mph], but it's tough to go out there and pitch every two or three weeks.

As Baltimore Police Department officials prepare for a Department of Justice probe into allegations of brutality, leaders of the local police union criticized the outside scrutiny and said it could make city streets less safe. A host of reforms, along with a strategic plan unveiled last year, shows the department is serious about improving its relationship with the community, Fraternal Order of Police President Robert Cherry said Monday. The new federal scrutinty could make city officers fearful of being second-guessed and lead to ineffective policing, he added.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- What can Chicago White Sox reliever Bobby Thigpen do for an encore?Trust me, it's impossible for him to improve on his record 57 saves. Thigpen knows this as well as I do. He had a ready answer:"I could go 35 for 35, or 38 for 38 or 40 for 40 and we win the division. It's a better year for me and for the team."A miracle scenario, nonetheless. Absolute perfection is required to rack up 35 saves in 35 opportunities. But there is a near-precedent.In 1984, when the Detroit Tigers won the World Series, Willie Hernandez, their bullpen star, had a dream year: 32 consecutive saves.

BOSTON -- Why doesn't the world care more about Bobby Thigpen? For a stopper whose 57 saves last year is a major-league record, it is a honest-to-goodness puzzlement.Well, the truth is that the Chicago White Sox right-hander is a victim of changing attitudes about saves and statistical overkill that has become a new kind of measuring stick for relievers. Nowadays, he rates as only a second-class citizen in a world that by definition should be reserved for very special people.The numbers he compiled in 1990 might have been just too staggering for the average fan to digest.

Throughout the second half, Liberty goalkeeper Josh Gursky kept the top-seeded Lions even against a relentless North Hagerstown attack.And when the Lions took advantage of a rare offensive opportunity to go up 1-0 on Jason Dunbar's goal with just under 13 minutes remaining in regulation, there was a strong sense throughout the stadium that Gursky simply wasn't going to let anything get past him.That was the case. Gursky frustrated the North Hagerstown attack and finished with 20 saves as the Lions advanced to the Class 2A, West Region final with a 1-0 victory in Eldersburg.

Lee Smith's act is getting redundant.Smith gave yesterday's sellout crowd at Camden Yards one more glimpse of his routine. Another leisurely stroll to the mound, another scoreless ninth inning, another save, another slap at the critics who declared last winter that the major leagues' all-time saves leader was finished.After he polished off Seattle in 1-2-3 fashion to clinch the Orioles' 4-3 victory, Smith responded with a typically carefree shrug when informed of his latest achievement. He became the first pitcher in history to record nine saves in a team's first 16 games.

EARLY-JUNE Journal:START YOUNG! "Since money at 8 percent doubles every 9 years, a child who, at 18, saves $2,000 a year in an IRA at 8 percent will, at 65, have more than double the savings of someone who waits till 28 -- $1,059,000 vs. only $476,000. Thus, an early start brings $583,000 in extra wealth resulting from just a $20,000 investment."A child who saves $2,000 annually in an IRA from 18 till 26 -- and then stops -- will have more at 65 than one who starts at 28 and puts in $2,000 every year until 65 -- by $66,000 -- or $542,000 vs. $476,000.

When the whistle sounded at the end of the second half, Manchester Valley found itself in a familiar position. For the third time in three games, the visiting Mavericks would need overtime to decide the outcome, this time against Century. However, this time the No. 3 Knights and the No. 14 Mavericks failed to score and the game ended in a 3-3 tie. "My defense played our hearts out, Century has a great offensive team and the girls have speed all around," Manchester Valley coach Joe Miller said.

Ravens officials instructed employees Wednesday to save any documents, texts and emails related to Ray Rice in preparation for the NFL's investigation being conducted by former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III. The Ravens had already been told that team officials would be interviewed as part of the investigation into how Rice's domestic violence case was handled, but they had not been given any specific dates or instructions on what documents to...

I'm a practitioner of parkour and the owner of Urban Evolution Baltimore (a parkour gym), and the loss of the McKeldin Fountain from the Inner Harbor would be very unfortunate ("McKeldin Fountain, a threatened Baltimore landmark," July 31). It's rare that architecture in cities is both interesting, beautiful, and usable for traceurs, so gems like McKeldin Fountain are treasured among our community. From the beginning of my practice more than eight years ago, McKeldin Fountain has been an inspiring place.

Three Vietnam War veterans stood on the ramparts of Fort McHenry, gazed onto the Patapsco where British warships launched hundreds of rockets and mortar shells almost 200 years ago, and imagined the scene that unfolded during the Battle of Baltimore. "I know rain was pouring down, and with all the shooting and shelling for more than 24 hours, they had no idea if they were going to survive," said Chuck Gallinger, 69, of Oshkosh, Wis., who served in Southeast Asia in 1966. Gallinger and his friends - in town for a reunion of their unit, the 709th Maintenance Battalion of the 9th Infantry - had stopped for a taste of the Star-Spangled Spectacular, Baltimore's bicentennial celebration of its defense against the British and the writing of the national anthem.

Two Baltimore-area firms are planning to restore the historic Central Savings Bank in downtown, adding more shops and apartments to a once vibrant business district trying to reinvent itself as a hotbed of residential activity. Poverni Sheikh Group and Meisel Capital Partners are planning 26, mostly one-bedroom apartments, as well as 12,000 square feet of retail in the 1 E. Lexington St. property, and two adjacent parcels on Lexington and N. Charles streets. The joint venture, Central Savings Bank Shops & Flats, purchased the properties, which were built around 1900 and are connected in the interiors, as a package last month for $1.2 million, said Poverni Sheikh Group Principal Ibrahim Sheikh.

"Who is this guy?" a Towson State men's lacrosse fan asked after watching visiting Loyola goalkeeper Tim McGeeney emerge from a cloud of dust cradling one his 20 saves of the night."Where did they get this guy?" he later pondered as McGeeney snagged a shot over his left shoulder, cradled it, and delivered an outlet pass, in stride, to sophomore Derek Radebaugh sprinting down the sideline. "Is this guy for real?"Yes.In eight games this season -- six wins and two losses -- the freshman keeper out of North County High has been superb, allowing just over eight goals a game and boasting an impressive .659 save percentage.

I am so angry right now, I should get a two-game suspension. The National Football League and the Baltimore Ravens have sacrificed running back Ray Rice on the altar of their public image. His firing was cynical and expedient and has absolutely nothing to do with domestic abuse. As soon as video from inside the casino elevator was made public - confirming what we already knew from the police report, that Rice hit his then-fiancee hard enough to knock her unconscious - the team terminated his contract.
