Let's face it: Summer's over. But still, warm weather and plenty of daylight have me trying to squeeze those last few drops from the season. Read: Drink outdoors as frequently as possible. One of my favorite places to do so as of late has been at Sunset Cove in Bowleys Quarters in Baltimore County. The waterfront destination's sand, palm trees and boat slips are transformative enough to make you feel as if you're somewhere far away from life's reality. Its extensive cocktail list, filled with tiki-themed favorites and specialty crushes, make the tropical transporting even more seamless.

Law enforcement agencies across Maryland are no longer required to collect and report the race of drivers in traffic stops to the state because legislators didn't notice a 3-year-old law expiring. Police, sheriff's departments and other similar agencies also no longer have to provide the state with information about their SWAT deployments as another expiring law had stipulated. The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland decried the lapses, especially the lifting of the requirement to track traffic stops by race.

The sun is already out several fewer seconds each day since last week's solstice, but the time of sunset has continued to shift later -- until Friday. Thursday's sunset, at 8:37 p.m., is just about the latest of the year. The sunset hovers around 8:37 p.m. for about a week, shifting by a few seconds each night. We already hit the earliest sunrise, 5:39 a.m. on about June 14. The solstice, on Friday, brought the most sunshine of the year, with 14 hours, 56 minutes and 19 seconds between sunrise and sunset.

Baltimore's first sunset to take place after 5 p.m. since November occurs Wednesday evening. The last time the sun set after 5 p.m. or later was Nov. 6. Just a few days before that, sunset didn't come until after 6 p.m., but then an end to daylight savings time came. Sunsets are getting about a minute later each day this time of year, and those gains accelerate as we approach spring. Sunset will near 5:30 p.m. by the end of the month. Sunrises are also meanwhile starting to get earlier.

Sunset lovers are connoisseurs of nature's great performances -- fans of the big finish. A few years ago, some people were watching a majestic late-summer sunset from Federal Hill. At the finish, one of the spectators yelled, "That was a 10!"Great sunsets have a way of burning into memory, of separating, by degrees of light, life's good moments from the bad or just ordinary ones.Some people have a sense of sunset, a spiritual instinct that instructs them where and when to look. "Dusks seem to reach into me and pull me away from whatever I may be thinking or worrying about," says Tom Casciero, who works at Towson State University and relishes sunsets from a hilltop there.

Kathy Davis of Ellicott City brought her daughters, 12-year-old Eryn and 10-year-old Brittany, so that they could celebrate the start of summer with three of their friends.

The Davis entourage was among the hundreds of people attending Wednesday evening's Sunset Serenade concert at Ellicott City's Centennial Park.

Richard Linklater's Before Sunset is a vibrant emotional epic about a man and a woman talking as they stroll in and out of a cafe, a garden path and a tourist boat during the waning hours of a beautiful Parisian afternoon. Only the physical weather is placid. If the co-writer-director, Richard Linklater, could draw a meteorological map of this couple's romantic fluctuations, the screen would ripple with isobars and isotherms and wildly shifting temperatures.

Baltimore is experiencing the worst crime wave in recent history, yet the front page of The Sun recently featured an article headlined "Taking in the sunset with the Domino sign" (July 1). Really? R.J. Stryjewski, Baltimore

As much of Baltimore finishes its work day, the Domino sign is just warming up. Literally. Each evening, it takes 15 minutes from the moment the timer clicks on for the noble gases to be ready to paint the town red. Showtime zips through hundreds of miles of wire and 230 transformers until it makes a grand entrance in 650 elongated glass tubes bent into the shapes that spell out America's No. 1 brand of sugar. The result is picture perfect. Countless people have made the sign the backdrop for snapshots.

If any restaurant has inherited Haussner's mantle as the quintessential Old Baltimore eating place, it would have to be the Sunset, a Glen Burnie fixture since the '60s. It even has a gilt-framed reclining nude over the bar. Ah, but there's much more. There isn't quite the profusion of objets d'art and period paintings that Haussner's was famous for, or a giant ball of string, but there is art -- including a portrait of the owners, of course -- and Tiffany-style lamps and etched glass.

For Joseph P. Manck, the clock has run out - that's the desk clock he's watched count down two years toward retirement from the job of his dreams. "This is the best job," the Anne Arundel County judge says. "I said, `Let someone else have as much fun.'" After nearly 18 years in black robes - first as a District Court judge and then on the Circuit Court, where he is administrative judge - Manck is stepping down just after turning 60 and becoming eligible to retire. Technically, the job is his through July 1, but on May 23, the family photos and the model of a motorcycle will be gone.

Sherlock Holmes un-kicked the bucket way back in 1894. More than a century later, even though Harry Potter ends up on the wrong side of a killing curse, he un-bites the dust. In "Game of Thrones," Beric Dondarrion has un-bought the farm at least six times, despite having been hanged, impaled by a lance, bashed in the head with a mace and stabbed through the eye with a dagger. And that's just by the end of the third season. So author Walter Mosley had ample precedent to un-pull the plug on his most famous fictional creation, Ezekiel "Easy" Rawlins.
