Brett Schmidt has turned risk into reward. Schmidt, a lightly recruited prospect from Maple Glen, Pa., concedes that he didn't have much of a lacrosse background when he enrolled at Maryland in 2007. But three seasons later, the junior has emerged as the top defenseman for the No. 5 Terps. And as Maryland (8-2) prepares to meet No. 3 North Carolina in the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament at Byrd Stadium in College Park tonight, Schmidt likely will get a crack at containing Tar Heels junior attackman and Tewaaraton Award candidate Billy Bitter.

Just seven days ago, Baltimore's sports fans, the faithful clad in orange and purple, were brimming with optimism. The Ravens were set to open what they hoped would be a bounce-back season with star running back Ray Rice due to return at the end of the week from a two-game suspension for a domestic violence incident - a penalty roundly criticized as too light. The Orioles, meanwhile, were rolling toward a division title, leading their nearest rivals by a margin they hadn't enjoyed in decades.

"Did you ever notice Mike when he came off the mound after a good inning?" asks Alex Flanagan, widow of the Orioles Hall-of-Famer who committed suicide a year ago. "He always had his head down. " That provokes a vivid memory of No. 46, the smart pitcher who studied all and fooled many of the 11,684 batters he faced over 18 major league seasons. He was the long-haired lefty with a mustache who won the American League Cy Young Award in the Orioles' 1979 World Series season. He was all business on the mound, and Alex is correct about Mike's demeanor during his walk to the dugout after most of his 2,770 innings: head down, serious, pondering what he had just done well or not so well.

Those who thought that Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown would seek to ignore the fact that he faces competition in November's general election appear to be wrong. But to say that he is engaging with Republican nominee Larry Hogan isn't exactly right either. Rather, the Democrat and presumed front-runner for governor has been busily criticizing a version of Mr. Hogan of his own invention while skating away from substantive debate about any of the actual issues in the race. It may be smart politics, but it's depressing democracy.

I support a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million because it's the right thing to do. Our immigration laws are broken, and 11 million Americans need our help to find a solution. I personally know some of these hard-working immigrants, and I think it's hurting our country to keep them living in the shadows. I am a first-generation American myself, and I remember the struggles of my parents. We need Congress to protect the path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States and to vote in favor of reform this year.

During the winter, temperatures aren't the only things that fall. In the winter months, the sun is lower in the sky, casting a long shadow on everything that the light touches. They may catch our eye from time to time, but usually we are more preoccupied. We walk and drive around, more worried about the light on other things. However, if we slow down a bit and look, the simplest of shadows can have a presence, an almost tangible form to be savored. At this time of year, with no roses to smell, perhaps we should stop and savor the shadows.

Former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. must be wondering why current Gov. Martin O'Malley couldn't have made that gaffe last week when it would have benefited Ehrlich the most: during the gubernatorial campaign. Oh, you must have read about it. O'Malley was expressing his support of proposed legislation that would permit illegal immigrants to pay what legal residents of Maryland pay for tuition at state colleges and universities. The idea is controversial, but O'Malley has said he will sign the bill into law if the legislature passes it. And in so saying, he committed what might hold up as the gaffe of the year, if not the entire decade.

What is it like to be the chief executive of Maryland on any given day? Here's a sample from the "to-do" list: meet with staffers; hold two news conferences on contentious issues up for debate in the General Assembly; end the workday visiting the set of a hit HBO television series. Sagar Gupta, 18, a senior at River Hill High School, got to see a bit of that busy schedule this month as he spent a day shadowing Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. - and Gupta loved every minute of it. On Feb. 2, students shadowed public officials as part of the state's career and technology education program.

CLEVELAND -- Both managers in the American League Championship Series would like to do away with afternoon games, the kind that drove hitters crazy Saturday because of poor visibility at home plate and also limited players in the field.The Orioles and Cleveland Indians combined for an LCS-record 33 strikeouts. Mike Mussina set an LCS record with 15 strikeouts, which Florida's Livan Hernandez tied yesterday -- in similar conditions -- in a Game 5 victory over Atlanta in the NLCS."I think 4 o'clock starts are bad for baseball," the Orioles' Davey Johnson said.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a classmate of Charles R. Larson at the U.S. Naval Academy, says the four-star admiral and former academy superintendent was a "dear friend" and "great man" who, like McCain's father and grandfather, cast a large shadow. Admiral Larson, 77, died early Saturday at his home in Annapolis after a long illness. "As the son and grandson of four-star admirals, I have long been accustomed to living in the large shadows cast by great men," McCain said in a statement Sunday afternoon.

The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland gave us an excellent window into the concerns that world leaders have about the global economy - particularly China's shadow banking system. But while the concerns may be legitimate, the expressed fear - that China will implode from the weight of the system's problems - appears overblown. Although ominous sounding, shadow banking exists in every country. In fact, the more thriving and capitalist a country's economy, the more thriving its shadow banking system typically is. What exactly is it?

The Civil War casts a long shadow. In the first year of that wrenching conflict, Maryland's lawmakers voted unanimously for a constitutional amendment to bar the federal government from abolishing slavery. Now, more than 150 years later, some legislators in Annapolis are looking to put the state on the right side of history. A Senate committee is scheduled Thursday to consider rescinding the state's 1862 ratification of the so-called "shadow" 13th Amendment, which would have locked slavery into the U.S. Constitution.

This is what is commonly called a no-win situation. A fight at a football game on Sept. 21 between Mt. Hebron and Centennial resulted in the following: two coaches and four players ejected from the game. A Centennial player sustained a broken wrist and his father then sued an assistant coach at Centennial for injuring his son. The case went to court and the assault charge against the coach was dropped. But the coach was removed. So everybody essentially loses. The biggest losers unfortunately are the youngster who was injured, the players who lost a coach in the middle of the season, and coaches and future coaches who instinctively would attempt to break up a fight, but who might now have to think twice before wading in for fear of legal action.

According to Jewish tradition, those who atone over the High Holidays for the sins of the past year will be granted peace, prosperity and life. As thousands of area Jews prepare to begin the solemn season Wednesday night amid high tensions in the Middle East, local rabbis say they've been praying that God might bestow similar good fortune on Israel. The topic of the Jewish homeland has long been an integral part of the religious observations for Rosh Hashana, which starts at sundown Wednesday, to Yom Kippur on Sept.

Shakespeare's Macbeth is a play whose title character concocts and carries out his most heinous deeds in the dark. So it's especially fitting that shadows figure prominently in the new production at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre. In director Michael Kahn's eerie vision - augmented by designer Michael Chybowski's spectral lighting - the prophesying witches first appear in shadow behind a scrim of bare trees. Later, when Macbeth revisits the witches for further soothsaying, their predictions take the form of shadows.

Several shadows, not all gloomy, cropped up at the 24th annual Spoleto Festival U.S.A. in Charleston, S.C. This popular celebration of the arts, which continues through Sunday, could not escape the shadow cast by the Confederate battle flag flying over the state capitol at least until July 1. The NAACP's call for a state tourism boycott as a result of that offending cloth took its toll on Spoleto, possibly the country's most prominent multi-arts festival....

Brendan Fowler won more than 55 percent of his faceoffs and scooped up at least 34 ground balls in each of his first two seasons at Duke, but still was not making much of a dent in terms of playing time. Then again, considering that C.J. Costabile - who won 53 percent of his draws and collected 376 ground balls en route to being named Division I's top midfielder - was atop the depth chart, Fowler was not fretting about his opportunities. “C.J. just brought a different dynamic as a faceoff guy,” Fowler recalled Wednesday afternoon.
