The mood and composition of the Ravens' offensive line have undergone major changes after a frustrating season. Pass rushers often invaded the pocket last year, either knocking quarterback Joe Flacco to the ground or harassing him into rushed throws as he threw a franchise-record 22 interceptions. The running game was stonewalled much of the season. The Ravens averaged just 3.1 yards per carry as running back Ray Rice struggled with injuries and rarely had holes to run through.

A plumbing company employee was trapped for several hours yesterday after a trench collapsed outside a West Baltimore home, causing injuries to his legs, a city Fire Department spokesman reported. The man's identity was not available. About 11:30 a.m., a worker for Quality Plumbing was in a 7-foot-deep, 18-foot-long trench making repairs to a sewer line leading to a house in the 2800 block of Koko Lane when a portion of one wall of the trench collapsed, trapping the man up to his knees, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, the spokesman.

Sal Conaboy spoke so softly that the reporters surrounding him had to lean forward to hear. Maryland had just lost, 20-3, to Syracuse on Saturday, and the Terps ' starting center was sitting in the Gossett Football Team House auditorium and trying to piece together how the team lost for the fourth time in five games. "It's hard to win games when you don't do your job up front," said Conaboy, a junior who has started every game this year. There was plenty of blame to go around for Maryland, which had four turnovers.

As the clock ticks down on the sequester solution to the nation's budget mess, it's looking more and more like a descent into World War I trench warfare. The two partisan sides are dug in, declining to surrender inches of policy and ideological territory, while the political battlefield continues to be torn up around them. Behind all the figures on proposed Republican cuts and Democratic demands for higher taxes on the wealthiest Americans, the same basic argument remains over which much of the 2012 presidential election was fought: What is the proper size and role of the federal government in fulfilling the purposes for which the nation was formed, as succinctly laid out in the preamble to the Constitution?

I recently found myself in Howard County General Hospital's emergency room. As a lifelong county resident, I am familiar with the ER and the volume of patients that fill the lobby each day. During my wait to be treated I saw a neighbor who need to be treated for multiple bee stings and a customer coming in to deliver his first child. I spent the next eight hours being diagnosed to rule out different causes for my condition and was ultimately admitted for a severe infection to my knee and leg. From the minute I stepped into HCGH I came in contact with very dedicated professionals bent on healing their charges.

Even though two defensive linemen could be taken in the first three picks, there is a good chance that an appealing one will fall to the Ravens near the bottom of the first round next week. Penn State's Jared Odrick, the consensus No. 3 defensive tackle in the draft, fits the personality of the Ravens' defense. In commenting on Odrick's high-energy play and toughness, one team official recently said, "he plays like a Raven." Odrick was named the Big 10's defensive player of the year by the league's coaches after he recorded 43 tackles last season for the Nittany Lions.

At times during training camp at McDaniel College in Westminster, the Ravens' first defense has featured Kelly Gregg and Haloti Ngata at defensive tackle. And Justin Bannan and Dwan Edwards. And Brandon McKinney and Kelly Talavou. The ever-changing personnel is a hallmark of the Ravens' wildly unpredictable defense. But perhaps more pointedly, it's a testament to the kind of depth the unit enjoys when it comes to plugging the interior of the defensive line. Gregg and Ngata are the expected starters, but Bannan made 15 regular-season and three playoff starts alongside Ngata last year when Gregg and Edwards were lost for the season because of injuries.

River Hill senior Scott Trench is what his wrestling coach Brandon Lauer calls "a throwback" - a high school athlete who excels not at one or even two sports, but three. "It's hard to excel at the highest level nowadays in three different varsity sports," Lauer said. "But Scott brings a tremendous work ethic. You know you can rely on him to work hard, and that's why he succeeds in athletics and academics." Trench, 18 with a 3.9 grade-point average, was the kicker and tight end for the Hawks' football team that won the state Class 2A championship; he wrestled in the 171-pound weight class and finished this season as the state runner-up; and now he heads into the lacrosse season where he is the Hawks faceoff man. "He's a guy I'm going to talk to my teams about for years," Lauer said.

Those who knew him best say Francis Allen Mercilliott invited trouble. At 53, he still liked to go bar-hopping with his son, get into fistfights that recalled his days as an amateur boxing champion and occasionally drop by his ex-wife's home even though she had forbidden him to visit.And Mr. Mercilliott, who led steam-pipe replacement projects for Gaithersburg-based M&M Welding and Fabricators Inc., performed his work with a similar disdain for caution. That explains why, say his son and his friends, he jumped into an unsecured trench early June 7 at a work site on the Springfield Hospital Center grounds in Sykesville.

When Gov. Martin O'Malley proposed a voter referendum on legalizing slot machine gambling, freshman Del. Craig L. Rice opposed it because he thought the General Assembly should decide major policy decisions and not send them to the ballot box. But Rice changed his mind when fellow legislators who represent the proposed sites for slots parlors asked him to vote for the referendum. "Slots are not proposed for my district, so I deferred to them," said Rice, a Democrat who represents Montgomery County.

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The political bloc loyal to the Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr announced yesterday that it had decided to resume participation in the Iraqi parliament. Also, U.S. and Iraqi officials announced a ban on truck traffic into Kirkuk and proposed digging a trench around the northern city, where a series of bombs killed at least 76 people a day earlier. The idea of encircling the city with a trench underscored fears that the violence in Baghdad and neighboring Diyala province will overtake the once-peaceful north as increased U.S. troop levels drive insurgents from the capital.
