The tips of my red raspberry canes wilted. They've always been so healthy; what's happening? It's not lack of water. The female raspberry cane borer is a beetle that punctures the cane about 6 inches below the tip to lay its eggs, causing tips to wilt and die. When larvae hatch, they tunnel down the cane and by the second year they are damaging the base and roots. The remedy is simple: prune out all wilted tips below the larvae. You can slit open a cane to see how far they have progressed or just prune out at least several inches below the dead tip. Destroy pruned tips.

— The Ravens' promising Super Bowl journey ended in an all-too-familiar way — a punch in the gut from their fiercest rival. Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall scored on a 2-yard touchdown with 1:33 remaining as the fifth-seeded Ravens collapsed to the No. 2 Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-24, in a painful American Football Conference divisional playoff game at Heinz Field. The Steelers advance to the AFC championship against the winner of Sunday's game between New England and the New York Jets.

It seems like a very long time ago that the Orioles announced the deal to acquire Kevin Millwood from the Texas Rangers and conducted a conference call to introduce the veteran right-hander to the local media, but one thing about that evening still stands out. Millwood didn't sound too thrilled to be coming to Baltimore. It became obvious when he got to spring training that he's just a very low-key guy, so maybe we all just assumed too much about his lack of enthusiasm during that call and ensuing interviews, or maybe he saw all this coming.

The families of two Western Maryland coal miners who died in a 2007 accident filed a lawsuit Thursday against the strip mine's operator, contending that unsafe conditions led to their deaths. The $4 million suit was brought by the widows and children of Michael R. Wilt and Dale Jones. The two men were working in a coal pit in Barton on April 17, 2007, when an unstable "highwall" collapsed, raining some 93,000 tons of rock and material on their heavy-equipment vehicles. The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration cited the operator, Tri-Star Mining Inc., for violations that it said contributed to the accident.

Question: My mom's thriving gardenia started wilting, though the leaves are still green. It sits on a window sill. I'm sure it's getting winter drafts. Would the floor be warmer? Answer: The floor may not be better since heat rises. Gardenias like bright, not direct, sunlight. Try placing the gardenia on a well-lit table away from the drafty window with a steady 62-63 degree temperature. Watering could also be an issue. Advise your mother to avoid over-watering the plant, especially now in the winter when it uses less.

Every year during the NBA playoffs, Don Ohl's eyes brighten, his step quickens and his heart beats a little faster - but not dangerously so for Ohl, 73, a survivor of six-way bypass surgery. The playoffs always brought out the best in the one-time star of the Baltimore Bullets. More than 40 years later, the man nicknamed "Waxie" for his crew cut still holds the Washington Wizards' franchise record for highest postseason scoring average. In 13 playoff games for Baltimore in 1965 and 1966, Ohl averaged 26.2 points, stellar work for a 6-foot-3 guard who practically carried those upstart Bullets on his back at crunch time.
