THEY HELD congressional hearings last week on a bill which would require a seven-day waiting period before a person could purchase a gun. Witnesses were divided into two groups: Those who had either been wounded by a gun, or had had a relative killed by one, and were in favor of the bill; and National Rifle Association lobbyists and Justice Department officials who were against it.I've never understood why anyone would object to waiting seven days for...

Maryland has won five of six meetings in this series and took home a 12-8 victory over Notre Dame on Saturday. The top seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, the Terps are just 11-14 in semifinals and are seeking their first title-game appearance since 2011. Rookies in the ACC, the No. 4 seed Fighting Irish did not advance out of the semifinal round of the Big East tournament in 2012 and 2013. No. 10 Notre Dame (6-5 overall and 2-3 in the league) finished ahead of No. 7 North Carolina and No. 8 Virginia in the league standings, but the team is in danger of missing the NCAA tournament.

"I just left an AA meeting," People magazine quotes the 20-year-old actress on its Web site yesterday. "I haven't had a drink in seven days. Or anything," she says. "I'm not even legal to, so why would I? Her publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, respond yesterday to a message from the Associated Press seeking comment.

With a 6-5 win over Navy on Friday night at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, No. 5 Johns Hopkins won its third game in seven days, and coach Dave Pietramala said afterward that the team is physically exhausted. “Three games in seven days is a lot,” he said. “… I think we need a rest, and I think we need it right now. We made a decision that we would give these guys two days off. Do you want to prepare for [Wednesday's home game vs.] Villanova on two days? No, you don't, but they play tomorrow.

This is Don Hetz's life: He sleeps a little late on Saturdays, he knocks off a little early on Sundays to see his family, and he works almost every other waking hour of the week. Hetz installs and services home heating and air-conditioning systems. Most of his clients are remodeling rowhouses in Canton, Fells Point and Federal Hill. The jobs are backed up two to three weeks, and he may need to start turning people down. Reluctantly, he hired a second helper. To fend off competing offers, he had to pay the new guy a percentage of the profits.

On this date in 1881, Baltimore began a week that wouldn't cool off. For seven days, through Oct. 3, the overnight LOW temperature in the city never slipped below 72 degrees. (Average lows are in the 50s.) All seven of those daily "high minimums" from 1881 stand as records, though one was tied in 1954. The four from Sept. 27-30 are among 10 record-high minimums for September.

On the seventh day, even the meter readers are supposed to rest. Under an exception thought to date to the time of "blue laws" that required closings on Sundays, Baltimore parking meters are not supposed to be in effect then. But meters at the Inner Harbor say otherwise, and meter readers issue 200 to 300 tickets on Sundays, as they do every other day of the week. Those who pay to park there Sundays -- and those who pay tickets for failing to do so -- might keep their money in their pockets if they knew more about the law. Marc McDowell, a host at J. Paul's restaurant who plugs $10 in meters when he works Sundays, wasn't happy to learn he has missed out on a freebie.

As the No. 1 seed in the America East tournament, the UMBC women's soccer team enjoys the luxury of getting a first-round bye and waiting until Sunday to meet either No. 3 seed Hartford (10-5-3 overall and 5-3-0 in the conference) or No. 6 seed Vermont (6-8-3, 3-3-2) in a semifinal at Retriever Soccer Park in Catonsville. The layoff is one that coach Leslie Wray said the team is looking forward to. “I feel like it's well-needed. We need to rest,” she said Monday. “We don't have a very deep bench, and we're asking a lot of all the players to put in a lot of minutes, hard minutes and stressful minutes.

Here's the scary thing about the news that the Maryland State Police has found 30 cases in which gun dealers decided not to wait for the state to complete a background check and handed firearms to people whose criminal histories made them ineligible to own them: It's almost certainly just the tip of the iceberg. For the sake of public safety and any pretense they have to moral authority, gun dealers must immediately stop releasing guns before background checks are complete. The number of applications for firearms purchases has risen to unprecedented levels since the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., in December and the ensuing push for tighter gun laws in Maryland and elsewhere.

The mutual decision to postpone Wednesday night's showdown between UMBC and Maryland means that the top-ranked Terps will now have seven days between their last contest (March 2 at Duke) and their next one (March 10 vs. Stony Brook). It's the longest layoff of the regular season for Maryland, and coach John Tillman acknowledged some concern. “I think kids, you get them in a rhythm and get into a kind of systematic repetition and I think kids really flourish in that,” Tillman said Wednesday.

With rapt attention, 4-year-old Alexis Gamble fixed her eyes on three teenage girls, bare-footed in vibrant-colored dresses, as they danced to traditional African beats on Saturday, the fourth day of Kwanzaa. The Gamble family, of Owings Mills, lights a candle each day of the seven-day holiday that was created in 1966 by Eastern Shore native Maulana Karenga to reflect on African culture. They were among more than 350 who turned out for the annual celebration at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum.

The Frederick News-Post plans to revive its Monday edition, which was suspended nearly three years ago in a cost-cutting move, and will return next month to seven-day publication, the newspaper announced Wednesday. The Monday edition, to restart Feb. 6, will have its own design and features and will emphasize business and sports coverage, publisher Geordie Wilson said. More than 100 papers in the United States have eliminated publication days in the past few years to save money, but Wilson said readers in the Frederick market "have made it abundantly clear that they want the print edition of their local paper on their doorstep seven days a week.

A mug of fresh-brewed coffee in hand and someone else cooking breakfast at the campsite: the perfect recipe for planning the next adventure. Or an I-told-you-so, in-print and on-line humiliation that will live until I die. Which could be, well, as soon as Wednesday night. The premise, as sketched on a grease-infused paper plate, is fairly simple.
