Today, the Maryland Conservative Action Network (MDCAN) is hosting a daylong conference in Annapolis entitled "Turning the Tides. " Those scheduled to attend include Republican state Dels. Nic Kipke and Neil Parrott, Frederick County Board of Commissioners President Blaine Young, and former Republican candidates for federal office Dan Bongino and Ken Timmerman. Unfortunately, instead of selecting a legitimate conservative activist as headline speaker, MDCAN has chosen Pamela Geller, the leader of a designated hate group and one of America's most virulent Islamophobes.

When former Gilman star Cyrus Jones Jr. finished sorting through his 40-plus football scholarships following his senior season, he concluded Alabama was the right place for him. This time of year, the big game in front of him, is why. "One of the main reasons I wanted to come to Alabama was to have a chance to play at the highest level and compete for a national championship every year," said Jones, who has made an impact in his freshman season...

Stuck in their first three-game losing streak since 2009, the Ravens have maintained there is no need to panic because the team has already clinched a playoff berth in the AFC and has a one-game lead over the Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC North title. A win against the New York Giants on Sunday would assure the Ravens of the No. 4 seed and a home contest in the first round of the postseason. Even so, there's a sense of urgency in the Ravens locker room to snap the skid and inject a little confidence into the organization.

The National Weather Service issued coastal flood warnings for many parts of Maryland until 8 a.m. Wednesday. The affected areas are southern Baltimore County and Harford, Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties. Baltimore and Harford Counties should expect high tide levels 2 feet above normal. The other areas are expected to see levels 1 to 2 feet higher than usual. The tides will likely bring inundation of shoreline areas and large waves at high tide could make flooding worse, according to the weather service.

A Baltimore City Council committee on Thursday approved the sale of up to $35 million in bonds to help finance Under Armour's expansion of its Tide Point corporate headquarters. The Budget and Taxation Committee unanimously approved the sale of the bonds. The measure is to move to the full City Council on Monday. The council last month voted unanimously and without discussion to approve tax increment financing for the project. The deal allows the city to issue bonds to pay for infrastructure improvements on and around the waterfront campus.

The Baltimore City Council made the right choice Monday in unanimously approving an important provision in the deal that will retain Under Armour's corporate headquarters at Tide Point and allow the maker of branded performance apparel to greatly expand its presence here and add as many as 1,600 new jobs over the next decade. Under Armour is Baltimore's fastest-growing large employer, and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was also correct to "protect this house" and take the necessary steps to enable the expansion, which is expected to include a new 80,000-square-foot office building and retail outlet in the short term and eventually an office building three times that size and an 800-space parking garage, as well as athletic fields and walking trails.

While the Orioles brass is exploring options to improve the club through the trade market, executive vice president Dan Duquette has repeatedly said he likes some of the options he has down at the minor league level. So as the second-half of the season gets underway, we're taking a look at the reinforcements down on the farm. Here are five players from Triple-A Norfolk you could see brought up to help the Orioles through the stretch run.   LHP Zach Britton: This one's automatic. The Orioles need a fifth starter to pitch Tuesday's game against the Twins in Minnesota and all signs point to Britton being that guy. Britton is coming off his best minor league start of the season Thursday, when he threw seven shutout innings and allowed just four hits while striking out six. The Orioles have been able to go with a four-man rotation for the past few weeks because of a bevy of off days, but they open the second half with 30 games in 31 days, so they'll need a fifth starter for the long haul.

Only in minor league baseball could you find an event titled “Salute to Bacon Night.” On July 13, the Norfolk Tides -  the Orioles' Triple-A team - are attempting to set the record for largest BLT ever created as part of this bacon-themed night. The sandwich is going to be more than 300 feet in length, topping the record of 224 feet and 3 inches that was set last year in Missouri. The sandwich won't go to waste, though. Slices of it will be for sale throughout the game, with all proceeds going towards the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia.

Brian Matusz is making a case to come back to Baltimore.  The lefty was named the International League Pitcher of the Week today after his first start in Triple-A Norfolk on Friday. Tides outfielder Nate McLouth took the honors for Batter of the Week. Matusz tossed a complete game shutout in a 4-0 win over Charlotte, surrendering four hits and a walk while striking out four. Eighty-one of his 114 pitches were strikes, and he outdueled rehabbing Phillip Humber, who threw a perfect game for the Chicago White Sox earlier this season.

The Orioles made it official earlier today, recalling right-hander Chris Tillman from Triple-A Norfolk to start in today's series finale against the Seattle Mariners. In 16 games (15 starts) for the Tides in 2012, Tillman is 8-8 with a 3.63 ERA. He has 92 strikeouts and 30 walks in 89 1/3 innings. Tillman takes the roster spot that was made available when the Orioles optioned Steve Johnson to Triple-A Norfolk after Tuesday night's 5-4 victory over the Mariners. Johnson, a St. Paul's graduate, was recalled from the Tides on Monday, but he didn't appear in a game in the major leagues.
