Instead of some Howard county neighbors complaining that an exotic animal sanctuary does not belong in their residential neighborhood, maybe their homes should not have been built next to the sanctuary. They should ask themselves why they bought a place next to the sanctuary. The sanctuary was there first. If they didn't want to live next to it, they should have bought somewhere else.

Bill Schroeder, owner of a bustling Italian grocery on Westminster's Main Street, doesn't know Rep. Chris Van Hollen's voting history or many of his positions. But he knows his Democratic congressman lives in Montgomery County. And he finds it appalling. "We have nothing in common with Montgomery County - absolutely nothing," said Schroeder, 56, who usually votes for Republicans. "They depend on Washington. We don't. " Two years after state lawmakers redrew Maryland's congressional map, some voters in Carroll County are still coming to grips with the fact that one of the state's most conservative strongholds is now represented by Van Hollen, a Democrat with roots in the Washington suburbs and close ties to the Obama administration.

Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala wasn't surprised his team had a tough game Saturday against Siena. This was the third game in eight days for the Blue Jays, and Siena was ready and battled through the first three quarters. But early in the fourth quarter, Zach Palmer and Brandon Benn scored 54 seconds a part to help No. 2 Johns Hopkins pull away for a 9-5 victory at Homewood Field. The Blue Jays beat Towson last Friday and Delaware on Tuesday, and they were a little tired.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown became the first candidate to join the 2014 Maryland governor's race Friday with a call to close the gap between rich and poor in education, health and economic opportunity. Before a crowd at Prince George's Community College that organizers estimated at 2,500, the Democrat outlined priorities that could have come straight out of the playbook of Gov. Martin O'Malley, Brown's term-limited partner in Annapolis. Brown is the first candidate, Democrat or Republican, to formally announce his candidacy, and he did so in uncompromisingly liberal terms - pledging to maintain Maryland's No. 1-ranked school system, to keep college tuition low and to invest aggressively in infrastructure and career training.

Here are some highlights from Buck Showalter's pre-game media session: Showalter announced the obvious, saying that Jim Johnson would get the call today if the Orioles had the lead in the ninth. He told Johnson via text earlier this week, after congratulating him on the birth of his son. “He texted me something about the baby and something else, and I said, 'Congratulations. And by the way, you're closing.'” Showalter said. “And he said, 'Yeah, I know.' ” Johnson was delayed in the spring because of  back issues, but Showalter said he believes Johnson has returned to form.

It usually isn't big news when a Big Ten team moves into the Associated Press poll. It is when that team is Northwestern. The Wildcats moved into the poll Monday at No. 25, their first appearance since January 1969, when it was still a Top 20. With Kansas again a runaway No. 1, as it has been since the preseason poll, the top eight remained the same for the third straight week. Northwestern (10-1) has won nine straight since a loss to Butler. The Wildcats, the only team from a BCS conference never to play in the NCAA tournament, were ranked for three weeks in 1968-69.

Staff writer A. M. Chaplin says she didn't know much about the military when she started this week's cover story. She'd gotten interested in the subject of war colleges when she read an article about them in The Atlantic: She had never realized they existed before. She wanted to find out more, maybe even write her own story, but she wasn't sure the subject would be of general interest. And then the war in the gulf broke out.One thing A. M. did know about the military, though, was that it wasn't terribly fond of the press.

PARIS -- The most desperate words I have ever read about Northern Ireland were written a few days ago by an eminent British commentator, Neal Ascherson of London's The Independent.''It is the last resort, but perhaps the only hope,'' he wrote. ''When the first American patrol moves up the Lower Falls, and when the Stars and Stripes flutter above the guardposts . . . at Derry, then the madness can slowly begin to drain off the land.''They are also the most futile words ever written about Northern Ireland.

I have a friend who has an adorable, unneutered 2-year-old male cocker spaniel. The dog is completely housebroken but is continually marking his territory in my house. My friend has begun to put doggie diapers on him when she takes him to anyone's house. I have found that there is no scientific proof that neutering a male dog does anything concerning his behavior. What can be done to make him stop? Actually there are several studies (University of California, Davis, ASPCA, and others)

Much of Friday's political-media online chatter was focused on Fox news hiring failed presidential candidate and pizza executive Herman Cain as a political analyst. But the big story that seemed to mostly sail under the radar was the embattled channel's hour-long, full-right-wing, all-out, let's-give-a-big-big-hug coronation later in the evening of Dr. Benjamin Carson, the famous neurosurgeon at Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital, who made headlines for what he had to say Feb. 7 at the National Prayer Breakfast.

In the film "Groundhog Day," Bill Murray wakes up each morning and relives the previous day. A similar scenario is playing out in the Middle East between Israel and her enemies. The deadly "movie" always goes like this: Israel is shelled or attacked by terrorists groups, often called "militants" by the media, each one with the same goal: Israel's elimination. After demonstrating considerable restraint of the kind that would never be tolerated by any other nation, Israel fires back.

On his first play as a college quarterback, Shawn Petty hoped to make a statement, not only about Maryland's approach to Saturday's game with Georgia Tech, but about himself. Petty - a former linebacker - hadn't thrown a pass in a game since high school. But the freshman and his coaches planned to immediately show the Yellow Jackets on Saturday that he could throw often and accurately enough to keep the defense guessing about Maryland's play selection. The Terps wanted Georgia Tech to respect the pass so that it would be unable to stack the box with extra defenders against the run. "Coming into the game, they thought I couldn't throw - knew I couldn't throw, I guess," Petty said after Georgia Tech defeated the Terps, 33-13.

Randy Edsall is having the kind of week that makes football coaches chug Maalox at two in the morning. Maybe you heard: Maryland is having issues as it gets ready to play Boston College on Saturday. The main issue is that the Terps' quarterbacks keep getting carted off the field and returning to the sidelines on crutches. Freshman Perry Hills is the latest to go down. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament in last week's heart-breaking 20-18 loss to North Carolina State and is done for the season.

Although Americans wish to focus on the anemic economy and upcoming election, the wider world may intervene. Competing claims over sovereignty in the waters around China - the East China Sea and the South China Sea - threaten to transform from rhetoric into military conflict. Territorial issues have became embroiled in partisan politics within many countries in the region, as leaders seek to bolster their domestic positions by taking a tough stand on issues related to national pride.

WITH THE enthusiastic backing of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., charter school legislation stands the best chance in five years to win General Assembly approval. If a charter bill overcomes the resistance of teacher unions and school boards, Maryland would become the 41st state to allow taxpayer-funded schools that are managed independently of school district bureaucracy. And there's a bonus: The new schools would be eligible for a share of $200 million in federal aid for charter startups.

Jerusalem -- BUSH administration officials are to be forgiven if they are, at least at this moment regarding the Arab states, adopting a modest "We told you so" attitude toward their cynics in the aftermath of the gulf war. But they also ought to take with extraordinary seriousness the other attitude in the Mideast equation -- the "We told you: No!" of Yitzhak Shamir's Israel.For there is certainly a "new world order" trend revealing itself in the Arab world, with Syrian, Egyptian and other Arab promises to end the long-standing Arab boycott of Israel in exchange for an end to expansion of the Israeli settlements.
