West Street in Annapolis is getting a nicer look with new and wider sidewalks thanks in part to the state highway administration's compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. I own property on West Street and the new sidewalks makes the main entrance to our charming, historic town look like someone cares about our great city. Once the agency finishes installing the new sidewalks, let's all do our part to make Annapolis a clean and safe city again. Bill Labros, Annapolis

More than three decades ago, 22-year-old Annapolis native Andy Teeling climbed aboard his 16-foot dory and embarked on an ambitious journey to circumnavigate the 450-mile coastline of the Delmarva Peninsula in a rowboat. After two months of rowing under the summer sun, and with his first semester of college beckoning him back to shore, Teeling's journey was stalled in Chincoteague, Va., 150 miles short of his goal. This week Teeling, 35 years later at age 57, finished the adventure.

The February 4 Maryland General Assembly hearings conducted by the Ways and Means Committee were an incredible performance of utter rudeness and arrogance. Although not surprised, at least 20 of us, both veterans of such hearings and unacquainted rookies, were unanimously dumbfounded by it. Needless to say, Chairwoman Sheila Hixson's leadership was embarrassingly lacking. We went to listen, learn and/or testify on House bills 92 and 204, a job creation and tax credit bill and a bill to create a propertyt ax assessment and appeals task force.

Just like our government, the tax-and-spend loving Sun doesn't get it ("Unfinished business," May 16). It's not really about a lousy 1 percent or 2 percent gas or income tax increase. The people of this state are rebelling against wasteful spending and ever-increasing budgets by our greedy, clueless government. If for once in their pathetic political lives, our politicians would start spending our money in a responsible and frugal manner, then just maybe we would be willing to consider an increase in taxes or fees without "hand-wringing and demagoguery" as suggested by The Sun. Here's my suggestion to our legislators: Stop the indiscriminate, wasteful spending, bloated budgets, and stealing of funds and replace all the money pilfered from our transportation fund, and maybe you would have enough money to fund needed projects without raising taxes in this depressed economy of ours.

The acting city attorney in Annapolis - who had visited the police station when the mayor's cousin was arrested - has resigned, Mayor Mike Pantelides announced Wednesday. Pantelides brought Timothy Murnane to City Hall as acting city attorney after Murnane helped oversee a nail-biter ballot count following November's election. But Pantelides was unable to get the city council to confirm Murnane as the permanent city attorney. When Murnane's confirmation came before the council in December, the aldermen elected to postpone the vote.

More than two dozen Annapolis residents are asking the city's Board of Supervisors of Elections to investigate the residency of Alderman Kenneth Kirby, who is running for re-election this fall. Kirby, a Democrat, has had repeated controversy over where he lives , dating to early 2012, when Kirby was found staying at a public housing apartment that police searched as part of a drug investigation. Kirby was not accused of any criminal wrongdoing, but the incident raised questions about his residency, because the apartment where he was staying was not his official address.

Jane Fonda was so smitten with Maryland's capital city that state tourism officials have taken to calling her "Annapolis' newest ambassador. " The actress was walking the cobblestone streets of Annapolis the other day to film a cameo in the movie “Better Living Through Chemistry," a shoot that's been underway there for a number of weeks. But unlike stars who parachute in and zip out with barely a look around, Fonda was into Annapolis, shooting tons of pictures of the historical vistas and then, later devoting a blog post to the town.

When Ward Westrick retired from commercial real estate development, he and wife Ginny were happy to sell their home in McLean and leave the density of Northern Virginia behind to settle on the Chesapeake Bay's calmer shores.

If the teacher pensions are transferred to the counties, the real losers are the taxpayers of Maryland ("A costly breakthrough," March 13). The state is in debt and can't meet it's commitments. One of its solutions is to transfer teacher pension costs. The counties, of course, do not have the money to pay for them either. Ergo, while Gov.Martin O'Malleycan claim he's balancing the budget and not raising taxes even higher, the counties will have to raise taxes to pay the pensions.

I've been doing a lot of research into investments lately. My conclusion has been that stocks are too risky because of electronic trading, bonds are too risky because politicians are incompetent, and traditional banks have next to zero return on investment. I had heard of peer-to-peer lending in the past, but discovered today that it is quickly becoming a legitimate investment option. Returns start at 5 percent and grow linearly as risk increases. It operates essentially the way banks are supposed to: borrow at X percent, lend at Y percent and pocket the difference for arranging the transaction.
