For the first time since 2010, it appears the Blue Angels will be back in full formation above graduation ceremonies at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis this spring. They'll also show up above Baltimore next fall. The U.S. Navy announced funding on Monday for the "full" schedule of its Flight Demonstration Squadron — better known as the Blue Angels — in fiscal year 2014, after sequestration grounded the jet fighter team's operations this year. A Blue Angels spokesman confirmed Tuesday morning that the team is planning to perform at all shows listed on its current 2014 schedule.

An Annapolis medical practice will pay $22,500 to a former employee who claimed she was discriminated against because she was pregnant. Officials for Annapolis Internal Medicine said Tuesday they agreed to the payment to settle a lawsuit filed last year by the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission on behalf of the employee. Jonathan P. Kagan, an attorney for Annapolis Internal Medicine, said the doctors decided to settle rather than bear the expense of defending it at trial. The doctors deny any wrongdoing, he said.

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

Editor: Colossal stupidity is the best description of our lawmakers in Annapolis who did not vote to extend the full tax credits asked by the production company of the Netflix TV series "House of Cards," filmed right here in Harford County and throughout the state. The O'Malley political lemmings are making the same kind of ideological mistakes that have forced dozens of businesses and residents to leave Maryland's oppressive tax structure, punitive regulations and single party rule; all led by a legislature held captive by liberal Democrats and a governor with presidential Obama-style aspirations.

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 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.

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.

Having circumnavigated the Americas on his own, Annapolis-based sailor Matt Rutherford has turned his attention to researching plastics' effects on environment Matt Rutherford is more comfortable on water than he is on land. As he sat recently for an interview at the U.S. Sailing Hall of Fame in Annapolis, Rutherford was clearly eager to get the next expedition for his Ocean Research Project underway. Talk about having cabin fever: Rutherford spent much of the winter cooped up in the same 42-foot steel schooner on which he and marine biologist Nicole Trenholm sailed to the Azores last summer to research the effects plastics have on the North Atlantic Gyre, one of the world's five major ocean current systems.

Johns Hopkins has dominated this series, winning 59 of 87 meetings. But Navy has won the last two games in Annapolis. The No. 5 Blue Jays (8-3) have won three straight contests after dropping three in a row. Victories over No. 18 Albany on April 4 and No. 6 Maryland on Saturday may have been enough to cement the team's bid for an at-large spot in the NCAA tournament, but a loss Friday could undo those positive vibes. Junior faceoff specialist Drew Kennedy ranks ninth in Division I at 63.6 percent (152-of-239)

To vote in November for Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown for governor of our state will likely mean MOTS (More Of The Same) from Annapolis. Mr. Brown has proven that he is incapable of true leadership, as was learned firsthand with the botched Maryland health care program. Marylanders are still patiently waiting to hear what became of state taxpayers' $125 million invested in the health care implosion. Will Lieutenant Governor Brown come forth with details about why the health program was doomed and scuttled?

Annapolis Mayor Mike Pantelides thought winning election as a Republican in a Democrat-dominated city would be hard. "The entire state was against me," he said. Governing has been even tougher. In the five months since his 59-vote victory, Pantelides has dodged an effort to cut his powers, fired several staff members and accepted resignations from several more. He's faced complaints about a lack of diversity in City Hall and endured a public flap after he was caught passing a profane note to an alderman.

I found your recent story about the fight between an aide to Del. Mary-Dulany James and his brother both alarming and painful ( "After claiming he was assaulted by 'a black man,' aide to Harford legislator James, brother charged in Annapolis fight," April 10). According to the Capitol Police report, Luke Horah stated that a large African-American male assaulted him and fled the scene. Here you have a sibling altercation that resulted in injury, but rather than tell the truth about his brother, Mr. Horah decided to implicate a fictitious "black man. " What if the truth hadn't been discovered so quickly?

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.

If voters remember anything from Martin O'Malley's first run for governor eight years ago, it's probably two big promises: to roll back a big increase in BGE rates and to end the culture of divisiveness in Annapolis to bring lawmakers together to get things done. The first promise didn't happen. But the second? Boy did it ever. Mr. O'Malley wrapped up his eighth and final General Assembly session as governor on Monday, bringing to close what is a remarkable run of success even by the standards of Maryland's powerful governors.

Expanding Maryland's fledgling law on medical marijuana proved to be one of the key issues of the just-completed General Assembly session, and an Annapolis mother proved to be a key player in the reform bill that passed the House and Senate. In the fight to gain access to medical marijuana for her 4-year-old son, Logan, who suffers up to 10 seizures a day because of epilepsy, Gail Rand put herself at the heart of the debate, starting at the opening gavel of the 90-day session when she was on hand to lobby House Speaker Michael E. Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller.
