A long touchdown pass late in the game secured the victory for the Cardinals.
When Calvert Hall quarterback Colar Kuhns dropped back to pass deep in his own territory with 1:35 left in a tie game, the 93rd Turkey Bowl had all the trimmings of an upset in the making. Despite costly turnovers and penalties, a stout Loyola squad (5-5) that refused to quit looked ready to take the Cards (7-2) into overtime. The game once again revealed that regular season records in this rivalry are meaningless. Kuhns unleashed a picturesque bomb to senior wide receiver Logan Kurek streaking down the left sideline and he outran his defender for an 83-yard game-winning touchdown. Calvert Hall prevailed, 21-14. This play, "Kuhns to Kurek" will have its place in the annals of the rivalry and will be remembered for decades to come by the …

ShopRite shoppers and other Baltimore locals filled an MTA bus full of food and other non-perishable items faster than any year before, according to Mix 106.5 DJ Jon Boesche. Boesche and fellow radio personality Maria Dennis were on hand at ShopRite Saturday evening thanking generous shoppers for donating to the 19th annual Stuff A Bus food drive for the Maryland Food Bank. “I haven’t seen anything that denotes a recession or hard times. This bus has filled up quicker than any years past,” Boesche said, participating in his sixth Stuff A Bus event. He was cut off by a woman wanting to say hello after contributing an entire grocery cart full of just-bought food items. The woman handed six yellow bags to two Calvert Hall student-volunteers …

The head coaches will be the first brothers to compete against each other in an NFL game when the Ravens host the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh remembers as a child converting sleeveless T-shirts into different Big Ten uniforms and competing in makeshift football games against his younger brother, Jim. They also played basketball with a tennis ball and a wire hanger rim and threw snowballs against a tree, along with countless other contests the Harbaugh brothers would come up with. “We both competed with each other and against each other,” said John Harbaugh during a national conference call with reporters. “I know one thing: [I] couldn't have anybody tougher to compete against or anybody more challenging to compete against every single day.” That sibling rivalry will take on a whole new dimension at 8:30 p.m. Thursday at M&T Bank Stadium when John …
The Perry Hall United Methodist Church Food Pantry and the Helping Hand Food Pantry in Upper Falls distribute food to struggling families.
After more than 35 years in the banking industry, Margaret Hubbard was experienced with money. Soon after retiring, however, the 63-year-old found herself gravitating toward those in short supply of it. Since October 2010, Hubbard, a Perry Hall resident, has devoted her time to working at the Perry Hall United Methodist Church Food Pantry. "I said to the pastor, I wanted to do something where I felt like I was helping somebody else, and this is where I found my niche," she said. Hubbard is one of several volunteers, mostly retirees, who work at local food pantries serving families and individuals who struggle with hunger, despite living in relatively affluent communities. Through the recent economic downturn, Perry Hall has continued to …

It’s no picnic heading out to a big family dinner when your picky eaters won’t touch a thing on their plates.
I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole—yum, I can taste it already. The only part I’m not looking forward to is trying to avoid indigestion from the whining and bribing, all while praying that my two picky eaters eat something to appease their grandparents. Every day, I cook dinner for my husband and I, only to make a separate meal for the boys, who could survive mostly on chicken nuggets and peanut butter. On a daily basis, it’s not that big of a deal. I know they will grow out of it … eventually. But when my entire family gathers, the pressure mounts as to why my children refuse to eat or even try things. I've even contemplated feeding the boys before the holiday dinner…
