SALISBURY, Md. -- A few seconds after John Davies finished the final part of Halfway's Houdini act Wednesday night, he wondered if he'd need to pull another one. "I got mobbed at home plate and I started to wonder if I'd ever get out from under there," Davies said. That's what happens when you hit a walk-off grand slam to cap an eight-run sixth-inning rally and give your team a new lease on life. Down 8-1 to Berlin in the losers' bracket final of the Maryland 11-12 Little League State Tournament, Halfway came all the way back to earn an improbable 13-9 victory and reach the championship round against Brunswick.

Sharpsburg nearly had all the pieces in place to spark a two-out rally in the bottom of the sixth inning Saturday in the Maryland 9-10 Little League Tournament. Trailing by three runs with a man on second, Sharpsburg nearly placed another runner on first, which would have brought the tying run to the plate. Instead, a runner's interference call ended the game and gave Berlin a 10-7 victory. The back-and-forth contest was a drawn-out game that last well over 2 1/2 hours and had more than 230 pitches thrown in all. Both teams traded the lead over the first two innings before a three-run third by Berlin gave it the lead for good.

A few weeks ago, my wife and I found ourselves driving down through the beautiful foliage of Harpers Ferry road as we headed to Brunswick days.  This is the same road that my Father in law Leon travelled for over thirty years when he worked on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. As we enjoyed the scenery, we continued our trip by Sandy Hook where all the houses are built on one side of the street, and made our way through the little town of Knoxville and by the location where the old Acme store used to be. Times have changed a lot since my youth and the history of Brunswick goes back a lot further than I once realized.

It is a wild turn of events that after so many years of separation from reading theology books, there would be any interest in metaphysical speculation after such a prolonged absence. However, Joanie handed me a copy of Eric Metaxas' recent publication “Bonhoffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy - A Righteous Gentile vs. The Third Reich,” and there was an immediate desire to know more about this legendary opponent of Adolph Hitler. If you were to read this book, you would be profoundly inspired by such human goodness and sense of moral obligation.

BERLIN (AP) -- Chancellor Angela Merkel and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev crossed a former fortified border on Monday to cheers of "Gorby! Gorby!" as a throng of grateful Germans recalled the night 20 years ago that the Berlin Wall gave way to their desire for freedom and unity. Within hours of a confused announcement on Nov. 9, 1989, that East Germany was lifting travel restrictions, hundreds of people streamed into the enclave that was West Berlin, marking a pivotal moment in the collapse of communism in Europe.
