Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant spurned overtures from Under Armour and will sign a new shoe deal with basketball giant Nike. "Excited and humbled to sign back with the swoosh!" Durant tweeted late Sunday, referring to the Nike logo. "We are pleased to extend our relationship with Kevin Durant, one of the most exciting players in the game," said Heter Myers, a spokesman for Nike. A spokeswoman for Under Armour did not respond to a request for comment Monday. The decision ends the possibility, for now, of an all-Maryland marriage between the reigning NBA MVP, who grew up in Prince George's County and played high school basketball in Rockville, and Baltimore-based Under Armour.

The Ravens' marquee free agent signing bounced back from a pair of quiet preseason games with the kind of impact performance he felt like he needed to have Saturday against Washington. Wide receiver Steve Smith made six catches for 80 yards and a highlight reel touchdown late in the first half, when he hauled in a 24-yard pass from quarterback Joe Flacco while sliding through the end zone. “You come here in free agency and everybody has a question,” Smith said after the game.

City Councilman Brandon Scott had the right idea this week when he said the bill he is sponsoring to toughen up the city's curfew law to require children under 14 to be indoors year-round by 9 p.m. is not about arresting kids or cutting crime rates. It's about keeping the city's young people safe, and that can't happen if they are allowed to wander the streets late at night. It's really the parents' responsibility to make sure their children are where they're supposed to be at all times, especially after dark.

Traditional higher education is no longer the guaranteed pathway to successful, prosperous careers and wealth. President Obama and governmental stakeholders are recognizing that skilled job-training or apprenticeship programs in diverse fields are the best solutions to improve economic development for generations of young Americans.

A couple of years ago, the governor of Maryland stood on a dock on South River, a bushel of steamed crabs at his feet, telling everyone it was OK to eat Chesapeake blue crabs again - sort of like the mayor in "Jaws" telling everyone it was OK to go back in the water. "I am glad to report that the population of the blue crab is now at a 19-year high," the governor said in April 2012. There was so much excitement about the comeback of the blue crab that the state launched a "True Blue" marketing campaign, identifying and promoting restaurants and markets selling Chesapeake lump.
