For the first time in more than a decade, the sprawling House of Delegates district that extends from southwest Baltimore County through Howard County is in play. With three long-serving incumbents retiring from District 12, a large field of competitors is hoping to pounce on a rare opportunity to win election in what is seen as a diverse and important district. The wide-open race has attracted 13 candidates, including two physicians, a former speechwriter for Gov. Martin O'Malley and a former state lawmaker who is financing his campaign with $85,000 of his own money.

Shopper loses her purse and finds honesty in grocery store Today I lost my purse at Save A Lot Foods in Arbutus. I didn't realize it for almost three hours and was in a panic mode when I did. I went back to the store and asked the cashier if anyone had turned in my purse and they had. The manager had locked it in the safe. I want to take this time to thank the person, who found my purse. The manager said no name was left but I want to let him/her know how much I appreciate it. This action confirms my faith that there are still many good people around.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. apparently just doesn't get it. He wants the NAACP ("An open letter to the NAACP," Nov. 17) to support government funding of a few young people so they can escape their communities like the Arbutus he used to call home. Some of us want to help all the residents of struggling communities, finding ways to enable those with "athletic and academic prowess" to stay and strengthen their neighborhoods, including their siblings who might not be offered an escape. I don't doubt Mr. Ehrlich's appreciation of the opportunity he was given.
