My bold prediction after last week's controversial episode of "The Walking Dead" was that this week's would slow things way down in preparation for the grand Season 4 finale next Sunday evening. Well, this week's episode, titled "Us," was not exactly slow, but I doubt it will draw the crowds to the water cooler this morning either. There was plenty to keep our attention, but not quite enough to demand it. Glenn has the blinders on a bit in his search for Maggie, and his poor decision making almost cost his life and Tara's life, but this seemed to be one of those episodes where the good guys win against the odds.

JUST AS THE summer season is about to begin, Baltimore area bicyclists have cause to celebrate. The Mass Transit Administration, which not long ago banned bicycles from all of its carriers, has further liberalized its more recent policies. Under a six-month experiment, it will allow bikes on light-rail and Metro cars at all times, except the busy two hours before and after Orioles home games at Camden Yards. Buses still remain off-limits to bicycles."It's a safety issue," explains MTA Administrator John A. Agro Jr., referring to the tight seating configurations which do not allow enough space for carrying bikes.

NEW YORK -- Drivers entering Manhattan through the Lincoln Tunnel yesterday grimaced with dismay. Were all those people really walking into the tunnel's central tube? Indeed, they were - for a cause. Carrying signs calling for an end to AIDS, more than 500 activists strolled and shouted their way under the Hudson River in what organizers described as the start of a new national movement to eradicate the virus worldwide. It took nearly an hour for the crowd to move through. Many of the marchers planned to stay on long past the tunnel's western terminus in Weehawken, N.J. Their destination was Washington, where - after three weeks of walking - they plan to meet other marchers from across the country on Nov. 4 for rallies throughout the nation's capital.

State Highway Administration engineers yesterday unveiled what might be the peacemaker in an 18-month battle over where Route 100 will be built in southern Ellicott City.In a closed-door briefing with the Howard County Council, county administration, state legislative delegation and federal regulators, highway designers presented the newest alignments for the six-lane highway, along with their respective impacts to homes and wetlands.The newest route would avoid houses in the Hunt Country Estates subdivision off Route 103 and steer much farther from condominiums in the Village of Montgomery Run than a previous alternative.

This winter's ice storms and wet weather will tack a few extra months onto the construction timetable for the Route 100 connection with the Baltimore-Washington Expressway and Interstate 95."We're running a little behind," said Valerie Burnette, spokeswoman for the State Highway Administration. The link with I-95 is now expected to open in two years.Contractors on the 7-mile, $120 million four-lane highway extension have had to focus on sediment and erosion control during the wet weather.

ALBANY, N.Y. - A 4-foot-deep, T-shaped cavity dug from weedy ground in the shadow of Interstate 787 overpasses here may reveal well-preserved stonework of what was once the nation's most important transportation artery. Two professors from Union College in Schenectady say that after two years of searching, they have found the 160-year-old eastern terminus of the Erie Canal in the vacant lot near the Hudson River in Albany. `Buried quite carefully' "Previous studies said that the canal was destroyed from Cohoes on down," said Denis Foley, a Union research professor in anthropology, who joined civil engineer and assistant professor Andrew Wolfe for the project.
