On Thursday, my iPad said the temperature was 75.  Daffodils and crocuses all over Baltimore bloomed. Ditto Okame cherry trees. The buds on Yoshinos cherry trees swelled, but they did not open to create the pink ballerina tutus that make Yoshinos famous.   That is a good thing. The current warm-up continued a warmer than usual winter. Much warmer than usual. So warm that for the first time since I started using Dracaena plants at the center of my summer annual containers, they did not die back in winter.

The trial for the man who authorities alleged abducted his daughter after killing her mother has been postponed until next spring, his lawyer said Thursday. Timothy Virts, 38, faces first-degree murder and kidnapping charges. His trial had been scheduled for next week, but his defense attorney sought a delay as Virts undergoes mental evaluation. Virts is accused of killing Bobbie Jo Cortez in their Dundalk home, then abducting their 11-year-old daughter, sparking a multi-state manhunt that ended when the father and daughter were found in South Carolina.

Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman wants to throw more strikes, he wants to pitch more scoreless innings and he wants to keep himself in contention for a spot in the rotation. After Friday's 3-1 exhibition victory against the Minnesota Twins at Hammond Stadium in which Tillman allowed one run in 3 1/3 innings, the 23-year-old right-hander called his spring a "work in progress. " But Orioles manager Buck Showalter was a little more effusive about Tillman, who has allowed just three runs in 8 1/3 innings in three spring games.

I recently got a letter from Jodi Navid of Ellicott City, whose new house, she discovered, was built on a natural spring. She noted that the spring pumps approximately 1,200 gallons of water every 24 hours, and she is concerned that water might get into her basement. She added that she has taken several precautions to keep her house dry. She has two sump pumps draining to back of the yard and two alarms if the pumps fail. Also she has two battery-backup sump pumps in case of power outage.

Unless you've missed the news and are befuddled as to why people keep saying you're an hour late to things, we've all just "sprung forward. " How is it springtime already? With spring comes a lot of shuffling and changes in Hampden. Every year, it surprises me at how The Avenue (and our business district in general) can keep getting better and better, but it does. And if a lot of the plans and rumors I've heard come to fruition, Hampden looks poised to grow its thriving local economy.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter spoke with Chris Davis on Sunday and expects the suspended first baseman to soon go to the organization's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla., in an attempt to stay sharp. Showalter wouldn't specify when Davis will get there, except to say he's "headed to Sarasota here before long. " Showalter said Davis likely will clean out his apartment in Baltimore - which players usually do in late September or early October - and then drop off his things at his home in Texas before going to Florida.

Crystal Spring would include 350 apartments and cottages for seniors and 75 beds for nursing care and assisted living.
