Anything and everything can be sold online these days from cars to boats including Maryland's gem of the sea, the skipjack. Skipjacks are boats that leap in and out of the water, very much like fishes in the sea. The owner of what's being called one of the few remaining Chesapeake Bay skipjacks has posted an ad on Craigslist to sell the boat for $10,000. The skipjack (not the one pictured above) by the name of Ada Fears was formerly known as Lady Agnes in the late 1970s-1980s when it functioned as a wooden oyster dredger.

Baltimore County said Thursday it has settled three disability lawsuits filed by former firefighters and a police officer who alleged they were illegally forced out of their jobs. County Attorney Mike Field said the agreements would allow the firefighters to return to work with light-duty assignments. The police officer will receive modified retirement benefits. They will get $20,000 each in damages, as well as a total of more than $47,000 in attorney's fees, Field said. "These settlements honor these employees for their past service while also ensuring that firefighters and police officers who serve the residents of Baltimore County are working in jobs that match their physical abilities for the safety of all," Field wrote in a statement posted to the county's blog.

As traffic whizzed by on West Street, Nancy Patterson and her service dog, Mahler, rolled smoothly past homes and car dealerships until a utility pole jutted from the center of the brand-new sidewalk. Patterson negotiated her wheelchair around the pole, wincing as she got close to the road, and kept rolling, too excited to pay the obstacle much mind.
