Schisler, the longtime spokesman and director of public relations for the old Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co., died Sept. 12 at the Blakehurst retirement community in Towson of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder.

Even as the Baltimore Police Department faces criticism over its handling of an officer caught on video punching a suspect, an outside audit of the Internal Affairs Division has raised questions about the thoroughness and fairness of the agency's misconduct investigations.

My story isn't all that groundbreaking. I'm 23, officially a year removed from the University of Maryland-College Park and walking that ever-shaky line between being a functional adult and an irresponsible mess.

Finally, someone can see through the phony NFL, the Ravens and their hypocritical "Shield of Honor. " Scott Green from Chicago in his letter in Saturday's Baltimore Sun ( "What the Ravens should have done," Sept. 13) had a contrarian view on the Ray Rice episode, but I believe he was dead on correct.

From: Marche, Italy Price: $16 Serve with: Lamb, goat, game There's a deep wild berry and game character to this wonderfully rustic but smooth wine from central Italy. It offers great flavors of blackberry, herbs and earth.

More than a million visitors were expected to land in Baltimore this past week to commemorate the bicentennial of the writing of "The Star-Spangled Banner," many of them from out of state and in need of a place to stay.

This week, the Washington Post is running a series on how police work to seize cash during car stops without a warrant or making an arrest -- and data compiled by the paper suggests Baltimore City and Baltimore County police are among the biggest financial beneficiaries of the controversial tactic. Under a federal program, police departments can get payouts when they seize cash. And since 2001 the two Maryland departments each received $7 million taken from motorists and others, according to the Post's analysis.
