An Ellicott City man died over the weekend after an accident on the Tough Mudder obstacle course in West Virginia, the first such death in the three-year history of the outdoor run that bills itself as "probably the toughest event on the planet. " Avishek Sengupta, 28, was with a half-dozen friends on the course Saturday when he encountered the "Walk the Plank" obstacle, in which participants jump into a deep pool of muddy water 15 feet below a wooden platform. Sengupta jumped in but did not resurface and was later flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., where he was taken off life support Sunday.

The crash of a 477-foot tanker into a coal pier in Baltimore in 2012 — which cost millions of dollars in damages and injured a dockworker — was likely caused by the "high rate of speed" at which operators tried to maneuver the ship into Curtis Creek, the National Transportation Safety Board said in its final report on the incident, released Friday. The findings could have implications in pending litigation, though the majority of the damages — those claimed by CSX Transportation, the Jacksonville, Fla.-based railroad that owns the pier — have been settled out of court.

While none of the Bobcats had any idea what it meant, they all knew what was coming next: a chest bump of epic proportion. That's how Bel Air coach Scoop Kelly celebrated a big goal, his passion for lacrosse and for his beloved program on full display in a sudden burst of excitement. But the big goals that would have called for Kelly's sideline celebration haven't been the same this season.

Please understand that I am not complaining about speed cameras. If drivers do not wish to have their pictures taken, there is an easy method to avoid the inconvenience: do not speed. I am complaining about the location of a specific speed camera — the one located on South Rolling Road, across the street from Catonsville High School, facing so as to catch speeders heading in the direction of the I-195 Park & Ride. Three times, I've been traveling west-bound when a vehicle set off the camera.
