It's amazing how quickly months of caked-on tunnel grime can be whisked away with a jug of Soot-B-Gone and a $250,000 Mercedes-Benz. The potent one-two punch is how the Maryland Transportation Authority keeps tiled walls in the Fort McHenry and Baltimore Harbor tunnels glistening from the beginning of April through Thanksgiving. For the overnight scrubbing operation, workers mix the anti-soot soap with hundreds of gallons of water and place the solution on the backs of two bug-eyed, German-engineered trucks called Unimogs.

Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps plans to enter a six-week in-patient treatment program after his recent drunken-driving arrest, he and his agent said Sunday. The move should help his legal case and boost his public image as he seeks to keep a swimming comeback alive, legal and sports experts said. In statements on social media Sunday morning, Phelps told his fans that he plans to take time off to "attend a program" and focus on his personal life. "I recognize that this is not my first lapse in judgment, and I am extremely disappointed with myself," said Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history.

Carole Caines of Pasadena heard of an old saying about the "dog day" cicadas, the annual variety that start singing in the hottest days of July or August. When they pipe up, she says, "count (X) days, and that will be your first frost." But she forgot how long to count. I've heard 45 days, or six weeks, which might work for the Midwest, or Garrett County. Not here. Six weeks gets us to mid-September. East of the mountains, average first frosts are in October.

When thunder rumbled recently, I did not care that my swimming laps would have to be postponed. My hope was that the rumbles would continue and move closer to home. They did. Winds whipped up the hill and rain poured. Water gushed like rivers from the downspouts, and with it my resolve to install rain barrels. We had had only a trace of rain in six weeks. The ground was hard. Trees, lawns and plants were brown. This has been a schizophrenic garden season. With abundant spring rains, homeowners and gardeners were slow to realize the need to water late this summer.

Baltimore issued more than 16,000 speed camera tickets in less than two months this year before shutting the troubled program down over a programming error, according to figures posted by the city. The numbers offer a detailed statistical look at the recent performance of the program targeted this year by state lawmakers. Officials started issuing the $40 tickets for the first time this year on Feb. 20, the figures show. But they announced on April 16 that they had again stopped citing drivers amid reports that one of the city's new cameras had been programmed with the wrong speed limit, resulting in hundreds of erroneous tickets.

For Baltimore sports fans, now is the early spring of our discontent. Could it really be that just six weeks ago, we were living in sports fandom ecstasy? The Baltimore Ravens were parading down Pratt Street hoisting a Vince Lombardi Trophy, having won the Super Bowl , the highest honor in U.S. professional sports. There was even a bit of afterglow leftover from the Orioles' surprising season and playoff effort, the first time Baltimore's Major League Baseball franchise had reached the post-season since 1997.

Donald Hill-Eley has always told his Morgan State football players that life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond. Now, after enduring as strange a few months as any college coach could fathom, Hill-Eley is striving to live by his own lesson. In late November, following the Bears' third straight losing season, Hill-Eley accidentally received an e-mail outlining the university's plan to seek his replacement. For almost six weeks after that, as rival coaches ramped up recruiting for 2013, he heard nothing official about his status.

It takes a lot to force Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis from a game. He's played the past few days with a deep purple bruise on his left bicep from taking a pitch there last week in Toronto. When he was recovering from surgery on his right wrist, manager Buck Showalter's toughest task was making sure Markakis didn't sneak off and start swinging a bat prematurely before the stiches from his surgery healed. So when Markakis walked off the field just moments after taking a 92-mph fastball to his left hand, the Orioles dugout knew something was wrong.
