The recent code orange air quality alert is not surprising ( "Code Orange air quality alert issued, relatively rare outside summertime," Dec. 2). As I drove through Carroll County last Sunday I noticed at least five properties where large amounts of leaves were being openly burned, sending vast plumes of white smoke into the air. If it was happening in Carroll, then it was probably also happening in Frederick and other western counties. Open burning is illegal, but some people just don't like the government telling them what to do. Where was law enforcement?

The Bel Air girls soccer team came at C. Milton Wright's defense with persistent pressure that came from everywhere in the first half. Freshman forward Alexcia Kraemer made sure the hard work paid dividends for the No. 5 Bobcats as she scored two goals before halftime to send Bel Air to a 3-0 home win over the No. 8 Mustangs. "Very early on, we had to adjust to the wet field," Bel Air coach Josh Clemmer said. "We kind of mishit a couple balls and that was almost a wake-up call for us. … As soon as they figured out to strike the ball solid and play the skip on the field, they pressured up. " The win helped the Bobcats move a big step closer to clinching the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference's Chesapeake division.

I am sure I speak for most Marylanders when I say that Attorney General Doug Gansler and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown have let us down with their bickering and mudslinging and dirty political tactics throughout this gubernatorial campaign. I can't go a day without seeing an outrageously obnoxious ad on TV or receiving a slimy flier in the mail. It doesn't have to be this way. On the contrary, Del. Heather Mizeur has been a breath of fresh air since day one. She has remained positive, even at moments it might have been easy to take a cheap shot at her opponents.

Taylor Teagarden got his face crushed by three pies folllowing his walk-off home run to beat the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night. Should he also have had his mouth washed out? Teagarden, obviously surprised by the barrage at the hands of Adam Jones, Mark Reynolds and Robert Andino during a postgame interview, uttered an expletive that was audible on FOX's broadcast. No seven-second delay?

Spring starts tomorrow and brings a brief return to seasonable temperatures, but an echo of a winter that won't go away may not be far behind. Early next week, climate forecasters predict another in a series of intrusions of frigid Arctic air that has made for a brutal winter for the eastern United States. Temperature outlook maps from the Climate Prediction Center show an icy blue over the right half of the country, signifying a near certainty of below-normal temperatures. As the cold air dominates once again, there is a chance some moisture could move through, bringing more snow.

It's starting to look like there might be some Oriole Magic in the air. How else do you explain what happened Sunday at Fenway Park, which is celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year and seldom over the course of its century of existence has witnessed anything quite like this? How else do you explain the Orioles outlasting the Boston Red Sox in a six-hour marathon that would carry them into first place in the American League East and leave them with the best record (19-9)

Can Maryland afford the loss of 60,000 jobs a year because its air is too polluted? Absolutely not. That's one of the main reasons state legislators have an obligation to support the Schaefer administration's plan to require less-polluting cars by the 1998 model year, or sooner if surrounding states approve similar programs.Actually, state lawmakers have little choice: The federal Clean Air Act imposes tough requirements on states to lower their air pollution levels. Maryland must achieve a 15 percent reduction in emissions by 1997 and an additional 3 percent each following year until air pollution has been reduced sufficiently.

When Stephen Huppaty, owner of OzCorp Fine Builders, moved to Baltimore from Australia in 1997, he was intrigued by an interesting appendage to the miles of brick row houses -- rooftop decks. In the following years, these playpens in the sky would continue popping up in neighborhoods like Fells Point, Federal Hill, Locust Point, Butchers Hill and Canton. To Huppaty, it made perfect sense. In the tight confines of these neighborhoods, owners wishing to put additions on their row homes could either go back (given sufficient room)

Wednesday marks the anniversary of Maryland's tough new gun control law going into effect, and advocates are marking the occasion with a rally in Columbia. The law is getting some recognition in the governor's race, too, with Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, the Democrat, hammering at his opponent, Republican Larry Hogan, for opposing the state's assault weapons ban, the ban on sales of high-capacity ammunition magazines and "common sense background checks. " The claims are true in that Mr. Hogan opposed Senate Bill 281 of 2013, the gun control legislation Gov. Martin O'Malley pushed through (with some assistance from Mr. Brown)

Worked into a lather by outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai's lack of gratitude to the United States, HBO's comically blustering John Oliver came up with the perfect revenge over the weekend. He read aloud negative Internet reviews of The Helmand, the Baltimore restaurant run by Karzai's brother, Qayum. The contretemps started when Hamid Karzai, in a farewell speech delivered last week, thanked many nations for helping Afghanistan and its people, but pointedly left out the United States or any mention of the 2,000 American casualties incurred during years of fighting in the region.
