Ocean City wants boardwalk businesses to take it down a notch. The music, that is. The Town Council holds a final vote tonight on a proposal that would restrict noises and sounds from eminating more than 30 feet from the source. This includes playing music, instruments, sounds systems, karaoke - whatever your noise of choice.  Officials say the proposal actually comes at the behest of some boardwalk businesses that have complained they are being disturbed by noise from their neighbors.

Marriage equality took one of its biggest leaps forward today without anything happening at all. By deciding not to hear any of the same-sex marriage cases appealed to it, the Supreme Court immediately voided bans on gay marriage in five more states - Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Indiana and Wisconsin - and likely did so in six others that are part of the same appellate circuits. It was the largest number of states to realize marriage equality on one day, topping the three (including Maryland)

A large volume of sewage, which could be approaching 1 million gallons, spilled into a Southeast Baltimore creek throughout Thursday, said a Department of Public Works official. The overflow started about 8 a.m., coming from a pipe that leads to an underground vault in the 2200 block of Broening Highway and flowing into Colgate Creek, said DPW spokeswoman Celeste Amato. Public Works is working to re-route the sewage flow until the spillage stops, she said. When flow levels decrease enough, the department will be able to diagnose the cause of the overflow and provide a final estimate of the total spill volume.

The volume of general cargo moving through the Port of Baltimore continued its downward slide in August, with tonnage dropping more than 4 percent from the same month a year ago. The decline leaves the port nearly 13 percent below where it was at the same point in 1989.A key barometer of port health, general cargo consists of all goods that are not transported in bulk such as grain and coal. It includes autos, lumber, steel and merchandise carried in standardized cargo containers. The bulk of the jobs at the port are related to handling of general cargo.

In the mid-1970s, beginning work on the first volume of his monumental biography of Lyndon Johnson, Robert A. Caro moved for three years with his wife and indefatigable researcher, Ina, from New York to the Texas Hill Country where Johnson had grown up. "I realized that was a world I didn't understand, and I was never going to get to understand it unless I lived there," says Caro, a New Yorker. "It was a land of great isolation, loneliness and poverty when Johnson was growing up there."

Curated by the artist's widow, Louise Kerz Hirschfeld, the book includes an introduction written by the artist shortly before his death.

Ever wonder why rock concerts are so loud?Sure you have -- especially on those mornings after, when you wake up and your ears are still buzzing from the night before. It probably doesn't bother you in the parking lot after the show; heck, everybody expects ringing ears after a rock concert. But when it's still there 18 hours later, even dedicated rock fans begin to wonder about the value of too much volume.Even in the music business, most people agree that rock concerts are often ear-crushingly loud.

YOU MIGHT WANT MORE VOLUME IN YOUR car speakers. You probably wish for it in your hair. But in your clothes? In a society obsessed with slimness, can it be true that volume has sneaked its way into fall fashion, in everything from skirts to sleeves, coats to collars? It seems hard to believe, but fuller is in, and it's not really all that shocking. The plumping up of fashion has been coming for quite a while, albeit stealthily. On designers' runways two seasons ago, bubble skirts and egg-shaped dresses were the occasional artistic talk-pieces of otherwise unremarkable collections.

You could pen a thick book about the traditions and history of the Maryland and Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse teams, including colorful characters like Henry Ciccarone and Frank Urso, hard-fought games, respect, mutual disdain and a nasty bench-clearing brawl in 1977. They've met 110 times, including NCAA championship games in 1973, 1974 and 1979. They've staged tension-filled playoff games throughout the last four decades. For sports fans in Maryland, the rivalry is bigger than that rich history.

After spending several hours over two days to enroll in an insurance plan through the glitch-prone Maryland health exchange, it took another two days to cancel the policy. Agents at the CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield call center have been inundated with calls from people having trouble buying a new policy through the exchange. Maybe that's why they had little time to get me out of mine. (The insurance would have cost me more out-of-pocket than the insurance provided by my employer.)

Baltimore City firefighters were called to two fires Thursday morning amid the snow storm, but a spokesman said call volumes were lower than usual. Firefighters were called to the 1200 block of North Decker Avenue and the 2600 block of Greenmount Avenue, where firefighters had some difficulty getting into the house because snow blocked the doors, said fire spokesman Ian Brennan. "We haven't had any reports of anything freezing," he said, referring to fire hydrants. He said residents — in addition to sidewalks — should clear areas around fire hydrants to make them accessible in case of a fire.

Beloved by all for its packed-to-the-gills karaoke action on weekends and more Jell-O shots that any human fist can shake at, Walt's Inn has been one of the tried and true dive bars of the Canton scene for ages. The very last thing you'd ever expect to see there was an actual cocktail in an actual glass. Until now. Bartender Dawn Green, a Little Italy native and part-time bartender at Walt's, will frequently concoct large-volume creations with cute names to dispense to the masses.

Of course size doesn't matter. Then again, it's hard not to get blown away by the sheer magnitude of the just-published, second edition of the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Not that the first edition in 1980 wasn't a monster - 20 volumes, 16 million words and a production budget of $7 million. But the 2001 contender, with 29 volumes, 25 million words and a $30 million budget, makes a decidedly imposing statement. Weighing in at just under 119 pounds and taking up 55 inches of shelf space, the latest dictionary has clearly eclipsed its predecessor in several key areas, and not just price - $2,300 in 1980 vs. $4,850 for the 2001 set. In 1980: 22,500 articles written by 2,400 contributors from 70 countries.

Take a biographer already trailing clouds of controversy. Have him write the third volume of a monumental work about an American president seemingly destined to be loved and hated for reasons as conflicted as the author and his subject. And what you get is a donnybrook in the book-reviewing fraternity that often reveals as much about the reviewer as the book. Such has been the case about the nonfiction event of the year, Robert L. Caro's The Years of Lyndon Johnson: Master of the Senate.

As of 9:15 a.m., traffic was easing throughout the region, though volumes were still heavy on the west side of the beltway. The State Highway Administration is reminding motorists that there's a new traffic pattern in effect at White Marsh Boulevard (Route 43). The northbound exit ramps from Interstate 95 onto both eastbound and westbound White Marsh Boulevard have been converted into a single exit — exit 67. Commuters should take this new single ramp if they are getting onto White Marsh Boulevard — once you are on it, it splits to go in either east or west directions.
