After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

For the first time, a passenger jetliner with a body and wings made of super-hardened plastics took wing Tuesday, a milestone that promises to usher in a new era in aviation. A crowd of 12,000 workers and dignitaries lining Paine Field in Everett, Wash., watched as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner roared down the runway, lifted its nose into the air and then flew north as two chase planes trailed. The plane circled over the Puget Sound for three hours, as 787 chief pilot Michael Carriker and co-pilot Randy Neville tested the 787's state-of-the-art wing and electronics systems in a series of turns, climbs and descents.

An American government exam taken by all high school students in Maryland would be eliminated next year under the proposed state budget, a surprising shift in policy that comes just three years after the test was made a graduation requirement. Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposal cuts $1.9 million from the Maryland State Department of Education budget that would pay for the test and its grading. However, the legislature could still restore the test if it found the funding. Some educators expressed immediate concern that social studies would get less attention in high schools if the test is eliminated.

Question: Please send me a soil test kit. I want to test my vegetable garden and lawn. Do I need two kits? Are they complicated? I want to get this done right away, but I've never done it before. Answer: The soil test "kit" we offer consists of instructions on how to choose a soil test laboratory, a chart of labs in our region, and a sturdy bag to mail your soil sample to the lab. The information is all on our Web site, and you do not need a special bag to mail a soil sample - a sandwich baggie works just fine.

Chants of "Let's go Maryland" began to break out at Indiana's Memorial Stadium around the midpoint of the fourth quarter. Most of the Hoosiers fans had already cleared out by that point. The Terps will face some great challenges in the coming weeks. But Maryland was dominant in its first conference game as a member of the Big Ten, beating Indiana, 37-15, just a week after the Hoosiers upset No. 18 Missouri. Indiana (2-2) entered Saturday as four-point favorites. But the Terps (4-1)

COLLEGE PARK -- Indiana coach Kevin Wilson never worked under Mike Leach, and he was never on a staff with West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. But Wilson runs the same type of up-tempo, Air Raid offense that Holgorsen learned under Leach at Texas Tech and now employs with the Mountaineers. The Hoosiers (2-1) run the ball more than most Air Raid-style offenses, but Wilson's offense plays fast and has proven capable of putting up a lot of points. Stopping that offense figures to be key for Maryland (3-1)

Your recent editorial notes that Gov. Martin O'Malley is sidestepping the country's immigration laws by allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver licenses ( "License to deport," Sept. 22). But are we safer given that there is no requirement for legal or illegal immigrants to read and speak English as a prerequisite for getting a license? The Maryland DMV's online driver test tutorial is in English and Spanish. The DMV driver's manual has a Spanish version. Why? Having drivers on the road who can only speak and read their native languages does not satisfy me that they will be able to read traffic signs and respond intelligently to law enforcement questioning should they be pulled over for any reason.

Maryland health officials confirmed Wednesday the first case of enterovirus D68, a somewhat rare type of respiratory infection that has been sweeping the country and largely sickening children with asthma and underlying health conditions. Doctors in Maryland had expected cases, though most were expected to be minor, or the equivalent of a cold that would not require medical attention. Serious cases can cause breathing problems for children. The state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said the specimen was collected from a hospitalized child and sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for testing.

Now that the NFL and the NFL Players Association have implemented human growth hormone testing as part of a revised performance-enhancing drug policy, Ravens veteran defensive end Chris Canty is hoping that ensures a level playing field. As the Ravens' player union representative, Canty voted in favor of the policy. The changes include a suspension of four games without pay for a first violation, a 10-game suspension without pay for a second violation and a minimum two-year ban for a third violation.

COLLEGE PARK  -   The Maryland football team puts together a preliminary scouting report of each opponent on its schedule during the summer, scanning through last season's film to get an early feel for what a team might look like this season. For West Virginia, the tape would have shown a mediocre team that finished 4-8 and had problems on offense and defense. A year later, the Mountaineers are much better, as Terps coach Randy Edsall and his staff saw Sunday when they began reviewing West Virginia's early-season tape.

While no standardized test can ever truly measure all that a child has learned or can do, the new Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exam represents a vast improvement over the Maryland School Assessments (MSA). Both teachers and students are ready for this welcome shift. As a middle school English teacher in Baltimore County, I participated in the PARCC English Language Arts field test this year. Students were adequately prepared for the PARCC assessment.

It's a fact of life that students have to take tests and sometimes test-givers bend the rules in order to show good results. That may well be the explanation behind a few recent incidents in Maryland where educators in three counties apparently violated state test protocols. State education officials are reviewing the incidents and think they are just isolated occurrences, not an ominous pattern. But the officials are certainly right to keep a watchful eye. Students in third to eighth grades are given the Maryland State Assessment in reading and math, and high school students are tested in English and geometry.

Orioles infielder Chris Davis, Major League Baseball's most prodigious home run hitter last season and an outspoken opponent of performing-enhancing drugs, was suspended for 25 games Friday by the league for testing positive for the drug Adderall. It was his second failed test for an amphetamine in his career. The suspension began Friday before the first-place Orioles' doubleheader against the New York Yankees at Camden Yards and will last beyond the first round of the playoffs, assuming the Orioles make the postseason.

The same simple question comes up every time another major league baseball player tests positive for a controlled substance during this era of universal testing, and it's fair to apply it to Orioles slugger Chris Davis. How could anyone be this stupid? The testing protocols are known to every player. The rules are posted in every clubhouse. There are a couple of decades of steroid scandal in the rear-view mirror and the performance-enhancing drug era is littered with players who have endangered their team's playoff chances by either failing to clear a substance with the team's medical staff or taking the chance that they won't be caught.
