The home at 409 Patapsco Ave. in Essex is no run-of-the-mill raised rancher. "This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a waterfront home that is fully renovated inside," said Michael Schiff, the listing agent with Keller Williams Legacy. The house, priced at $325,000, is on one-eighth of an acre. The tree-filled backyard leads down to the waters of the Back River, with views of the river from the rear deck. The open floor plan features a living room and breakfast room that opens to a galley kitchen, which measures 21 feet long - larger than most galley designs.

This weekend marks the official start of the deck-sitting season, and millions of Americans will celebrate by taking to their decks, pulling up a chair, and doing absolutely nothing. I have always found that deck-sitting is best done with a cold adult beverage in one hand. At first, as you sit there with your legs up, things may not seem that exciting. But then you have another adult beverage, and another one, and suddenly it's not so bad out there. Suddenly, the world begins to look rosier.

Now that the Orioles have clinched the American League East title, the regular season is all over but the roster shuffling. The Orioles headed into Wednesday night trailing the Los Angeles Angels by three games for the top seed in the AL while leading the Detroit Tigers by seven games for the third seed. It puts the Orioles into a bit of a baseball limbo: Do they try to catch the Angels and not give their regulars as much rest over the next 11 games, or do they forget about trying to get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, be happy with the No. 2 seed and try to spell their regulars?

After the pain of Towson cutting its men's soccer program in March 2013 had subsided, Kay Banjo was faced with a life-changing decision: He could go pro and try out for Major League Soccer or finish his undergraduate degree and then use his final year of eligibility elsewhere. It was a no-brainer. "My dad has always been big on education, and I know I'm not going to play soccer my whole life, and I need to have something to fall back on," Banjo said.

Mary MacVean of Tribune Newspapers must be a smoker ("Are we sitting ourselves to death?" Aug. 28). Her article about sitting being as dangerous as smoking cigarettes has just given the remaining selfish smokers another fallacious argument to add to, "Why don't they make potato chips and ice cream illegal?" Now they can add, "why don't they make sitting illegal?" No one reasonable person concerned about health can accept the argument that sitting is more dangerous than smoking.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has appointed a three-member panel to distribute up to $3 million to the owners of historic properties whose tax bills in coming years will be higher than what government officials told them to expect. Retired Baltimore City Circuit Judge  John M.  Glynn, City Auditor Robert McCarty, and City Solicitor George Nilson will decide which owners will get the checks, which will cover portions of up to nine years of future tax bills. About 75 property owners submitted applications that could make them eligible to receive the checks, city officials said.

Army National Guard units in Maryland and across the country are postponing drills this month to help the National Guard Bureau close an unexpected budget shortfall, officials said Tuesday. If Congress does not find the money to close the gap, they said, the drills could be canceled. About 3,900 Maryland guardsmen would be sidelined during September to save $1.5 million - part of an effort to trim the Guard's overall budget by tens of millions of dollars in coming weeks, said Col. Charles Kohler of the Maryland National Guard.

Chris Davis, who was batting .193 in 99 games through Sunday, didn't start Monday against New York Yankees left-hander Chris Capuano. But after third baseman Manny Machado injured his right leg during an at-bat in the bottom of the third inning, Davis entered as a defensive replacement at third base to start the top of the fourth. The left-handed-hitting Davis' struggles this season have been well-documented, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he also wanted to get Steve Pearce a start.

Laurel. -- I save stupid questions. Which I suppose is just a head higher than collecting stupid answers.By definition a stupid question is one that really speaks for itself -- or should. For instance:Two of you are in a restaurant sitting at a table for four and someone approaches, put a hand on the empty chair and says ''Is someone sitting here?''What the individual really means is, will someone be sitting here? But there are mature and immature ways to answer the question actually asked.

Some Republicans in Congress, having wasted the 2012 election trying to get rid of President Obama with Obamacare as their bludgeon, are now talking about crippling him in the 2014 midterm cycle by crying impeachment. With Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's ambition of making Obama "a one-term president" dashed in 2012, other GOP congressmen are also talking of trying to remove him on grounds that he is exceeding his presidential powers, on issues ranging from immigration to the minimum wage to gay rights and Obamacare.
