When it comes to thinking about people with Down syndrome, Katie Hudson wants the world to take a cue from her 6-year-old daughter, Maddie. "She always says, 'We're all a little different, and that's what makes us the same,'" Hudson said. "She gets it. " That's why Maddie will be walking in honor of her brother, Logan -- and more than 400 others will make strides for inclusion and awareness for people with Down syndrome -- at the First Annual Baltimore Buddy Walk on Nov. 2 at Padonia Park Club in Cockeysville.

Barack Obama had a choice between liberalism and the Democratic Party. He chose the latter and it cost him dearly. Liberalism, as an ideology, insists that government can do good and great things for the people and the world, if the people running the government are smart liberals.The Democratic Party says the exact same thing. But liberalism is an ideal, while the Democratic Party is that ideal's representative here in the real world, and in the real world political parties disappoint.

Mark your calendars. The Tiki Barge has set April 13 as its opening date for the season. Tiki's manager Bud Craven confirmed the news Thursday. Craven is still nursing his wounds from a March Liquor Board hearing that denied his plans to build a seafood restaurant and raw bar barge right next to the existing Tiki. At the time, the board concluded that the foot traffic to the combined barges would be too heavy for Harborview Marina.  When the old Tiki Barge re-opens next Friday, it'll be back to what fans have gotten accustomed to for the past two years, Craven said.

I was deeply touched by Katherine Dunn 's article about Mike Whittles, the courageous football coach at Archbishop Spalding ("'Make every day count,'" Oct. 27). All too often, I find myself saying that one should "live each day as if it's your last," especially when hearing about another tragedy. But living that powerful statement 24/7 is another story. After reading the comments by all those mentioned in this wonderful tribute, I truly believe Coach Whittles should be an example to all of us. He can certainly add me to his list of those praying for him. As I shared my feelings with my wife, she handed me the article by Susan Reimer ("Ehrmann makes a case for building muscles and morals," Oct. 27)

Marriage equality took one of its biggest leaps forward today without anything happening at all. By deciding not to hear any of the same-sex marriage cases appealed to it, the Supreme Court immediately voided bans on gay marriage in five more states - Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Indiana and Wisconsin - and likely did so in six others that are part of the same appellate circuits. It was the largest number of states to realize marriage equality on one day, topping the three (including Maryland)

Although it's only minutes from the busiest parts of Howard County, the Highland Inn feels removed from the hustle and bustle of the area. From the pretty setting to the well-executed, classic food, dinner there is a welcome respite from everyday troubles. The Highland Inn's owner, Brian Boston, made his local reputation at the Milton Inn in Baltimore County. Like the Milton Inn, the Highland Inn is nestled in a quiet country setting. Peaceful and charming, the space, in an updated farmhouse, is a little less formal than the Milton Inn, but it is lovely enough to make a meal feel special.

But, Marylanders still stand at a crossroads between two very different futures for our state. In 2013, in response to the tragic Newtown school shooting and the all too common acts of gun violence on our own streets, we took real action to protect our communities by passing some of the toughest gun safety laws in the nation.

A limit should be set on the time it takes to clear or dismiss a teacher accused of misconduct so that employees do not remain out of their schools for months and even years, legislators and education advocates said this week. While two legislators suggested action by the General Assembly, an education advocate said some agreement could be reached between unions and school systems on how to expedite a process that is expensive to taxpayers and detrimental to children whose classrooms are staffed by substitutes.

Table tips Use rentals. Unless you love your table legs or your rug, rent a floor-length tablecloth – and perhaps seat cushions, too, Anne Berman says. Repurpose items. Sascha Wolhandler lets oversized napkins stand in as runners. They give the table a feeling of luxury, she says, although she picked them up at a hotel sale for $1 each. Sparkle and shine. Use plenty of glasses, says Wolhandler, because they sparkle so beautifully in candlelight.

This week, two organizations in which my children participate, the Columbia Clippers Swim Team (run by the Columbia Aquatics Association) and the Lime Kiln Middle School PTA, held fundraisers in partnership with Chick-fil-A. Chick-fil-A has recently been the butt of a media firestorm for its more than $5 million in contributions to anti-gay groups, including one group that is on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of certified hate groups.

Chris Tillman shies away from talking about his accomplishments this season because he doesn't want to give the inclination that he's satisfied with the steps he has taken. He had a remarkable second half, continued his emergence as a leader in the Orioles starting rotation and continued to gain the confidence of manager Buck Showalter. Tillman admits he's much more comfortable on the mound than he is talking about himself. And he knows success is fleeting over a long baseball season.
