The Baltimore Sun won an Online Journalism Award Saturday for Matthew Hay Brown's 2013 article, " Breaking the Silence ," about American servicemen who were sexually assaulted while serving in the military. Women in uniform are more likely to be sexually assaulted than men. But because there are many more men than women in the military, there are more assaults against men than against women. And when the victim is a man, Brown's reporting showed, a perpetrator is far less likely to be punished.

State and local politicians continued the call Monday for heightened scrutiny of Baltimore police officers who are the focus of brutality allegations, urging tougher penalties for offenders and greater disclosure of internal discipline. "Police brutality is completely inexcusable. I'm going to apply justice fairly, even to those who wear a badge," said Marilyn Mosby, who is expected to be the next Baltimore state's attorney. The Democrat is the only major party nominee on the ballot, though she faces opposition in the Nov. 4 election from a write-in candidate.

Joseph F. Nawrozki III, a retired investigative reporter who served on the staff of three Baltimore daily newspapers and was a Vietnam War combat veteran, died of leukemia Saturday at his Bel Air home. He was 70. "Joe had a real instinct for the underdog. He looked into their hearts," said Michael Olesker, a former Baltimore Sun columnist who was Mr. Nawrozki's investigative partner at the old News American. "His working-class background and his experience in Vietnam informed everything he wrote.

Baltimore lawmakers and community activists called Sunday for more reforms and federal oversight of the city's Police Department after learning about broken bones and battered faces from an investigation into allegations of police brutality in recent years. Responding to results of a six-month Baltimore Sun investigation , two councilmen said they had not known that the city paid money in more than 100 settlements or jury verdicts since 2011. "The administration likes to keep some of that quiet," said Councilman Warren Branch, head of the panel's public safety committee.

As resident of Federal Hill and a member of the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association, I hope that The Baltimore Sun will examine the nomination process by which Eric Costello was selected for the Baltimore City Council ( "Young accused of favoring candidate," Sept. 25). Of 14 candidates, he is the only one with letters of opposition. One of the letters was signed by 16 people. While City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young says that the selection was made for a candidate who would represent his constituents well, the evidence clearly suggests otherwise.

I want to thank The Baltimore Sun and Jacques Kelly for that wonderful obituary for my sister Vivienne Shub (Sept. 18). No one was closer to me than Vivi and I feel her loss most keenly. But as you brought together the many ways she worked her magic on the Baltimore theater scene, I had the sense that my grief was shared and that somehow made it more bearable. I was delighted when Vivi's son told me he looked up as he drove by the Charles Theater and saw Vivienne's name on the marquee.

From: Portugal Price: $11 Serve with: Nothing; it's great by itself As a class of whites, it's hard to go wrong with Portugal's Vinho Verde. These are light, clean, dry, low-alcohol wines with a touch of effervescence. Why the Praia? It's just got a little more zing and more generous bubbles than its peers. It gives you vibrant flavors of lime, kiwi and grapefruit, and would be wonderful at a fall tailgate.  -  Michael Dresser , The Baltimore Sun

The chief financial officer of Prince George's County public schools and his wife resigned Monday, after the Maryland Insurance Administration found that the couple committed fraud on their personal insurance. The school system is also ordering "external independent auditors to confirm there are no improprieties" relating to its $1.8 million budget, according to a statement issued by board chairman Segun Eubanks and schools chief executive Kevin Maxwell. The Baltimore Sun informed school officials Friday of the insurance agency's findings that chief financial officer Colby White, and his wife, Keisha White, an auditor for the schools, knowingly submitted false information to an insurance company last year in an attempt to receive payment for a lost diamond ring that another insurer had covered six months earlier.
