Maryland dug, scraped, clawed and hauled its way back toward a semblance of normal life - at least on main roads - as a break in the weather gave residents and workers an opportunity to remove snow without more falling on their heads. Many secondary roads and neighborhood streets were still covered in snow - and might still be today and Saturday - after the second of two storms to pummel the state in a week added 20 inches or so in many areas. But interstates in the Baltimore area were fully cleared to the pavement, in some cases for the first time since Maryland's ordeal by flakes began late last Friday.

When the Mays Chapel planned unit development was approved by Baltimore County, part of the agreement was that there was to be a school built as part of the project. Since it is sorely needed now, the county should build a school that serves the area. It has been many years since this agreement, but the county hasn't fulfilled its promise. There are many children who are living in the area considered Mays Chapel. While it is true that one of the closest residential areas is a retirement community, that should not affect where a school is located.

Officials at two Washington, D.C.-area hospitals said Friday they had isolated patients over fears of Ebola after the nation's first case of the deadly virus was confirmed in Dallas this week. But officials at one of the hospitals, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville, determined late Friday that their patient had malaria, not Ebola, hospital officials said in a statement late Friday. Howard University Hospital quarantined a patient who had recently traveled to Nigeria out of "an abundance of caution," officials said.

While Baltimore County officials were deciding whether Michael Williams was fit to continue teaching, he was assigned to a dusty, windowless room at a Pulaski Highway warehouse that held old textbooks, surplus computers and other materials. He, along with a dozen or so employees, sat at a long table reading detective novels and playing Trivial Pursuit. Sometimes they would fall asleep until supervisors, watching from a security camera, came in to wake them up. Williams, who had been accused of touching a girl on the cheek with a yardstick, was paid his full salary plus benefits for more than a year to show up at the warehouse when school was in session.

Shawn Taylor has been on the football coaching staff at Robinson High School in Tampa, Fla., since 2001. The school has produced former Alabama star Javier Arenas as well as other successful Football Bowl Subdivision players. For years, Taylor said, dozens of colleges would stop by and check in about players during the spring. Maryland wasn't really a presence, he said. This year, in particular, is different. The Terps have been down there. They are coming up in conversations.

A shipment of aluminum sheets from China had to be fumigated at the port of Baltimore this week after a snail species never seen locally before was spotted on the outside of a shipping container, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The Acusta sp. snail species could have posed "a significant agriculture threat because they cause damage by feeding on agricultural and horticultural crops as well as native plants, thereby lowering crop yields and crop quality," CBP officials said Wednesday.

Ever wonder why your neighborhood streams and rivers look so muddy after a heavy rain? A recent survey of construction sites in the Baltimore area found less than a quarter of the exposed soil being worked had been properly protected from erosion. The survey, involving staff and volunteers from 22 different environmental and community groups, found widely varying but generally poor controls on mud pollution being used at building sites in Baltimore City and the five surrounding counties.

As the Board of Education gave its blessing last week to Superintendent George Arlotto's $163.4 million capital budget request, officials said some projects in the budget may affect coming redistricting efforts in the Annapolis area. Two elementary schools in the Annapolis school cluster, Rolling Knolls and West Annapolis, are among facilities targeted for upgrades as part of the capital budget plan. West Annapolis Elementary is the subject of a $24 million modernization that will increase enrollment capacity from 274 students to 314. Construction is underway, and the renovated school is expected to open in August 2106.

As health officials fail to contain West Africa's Ebola outbreak, recent scares at two Baltimore-area hospitals highlight the need for hospitals here and across the United States to prepare space and equipment for what some consider inevitable - the arrival of the deadly virus here. While experts say the chances of an epidemic spreading in the U.S. are low, there is a real possibility that someone could come down with Ebola after returning from a trip to Africa, they said. Hospitals routinely ask patients with flu-like symptoms whether they have visited that continent recently.
