Apparently, The Sun's editors have a tough time choosing between protecting a political party or advocating common sense for the care of citizens and veterans alike. Dan Bongino's letter ( "Bongino: Sun's left-wing views show why print media are becoming irrelevant," May 31) describing the Sun as "circling the drain" is right on target. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki's resignation was plastered all over - page 9? Bill Krehnbrink - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

Both the mother and father should be charged in the case of the one-month old boy who was found buried in Druid Hill Park ("Murder charge in baby's death," March 16). The father led the police to the grave. The baby had been there since some time in February. Department of Social Services had taken away four other children. Neither of them should be let off the hook. The father must have known something about what the mother had done. I don't understand how he could have gone nearly a month and not wondered where his son was. I think he knew what the mother had done.

Imagine walking out to pick up the morning paper and discovering a gaping hole in your driveway. Or mowing your grass and having the wheel of your mower swallowed up by the earth. Or watching your children dodge a 10-foot pit as they play ball in the yard.A number of home owners in Carroll don't have to imagine any of these possibilities; they have experienced them. In the past four years, 52 of the 300 sinkholes reported to the county's Bureau of Water Resource Management were created by decaying construction debris that was buried by home builders.

Today it's best known for the pagoda, summertime jazz concerts and some of the city's best sledding. But an archaeological dig planned for Patterson Park's Hampstead Hill seeks to revive a largely forgotten 200-year-old story. While most know Fort McHenry's role in the Battle of Baltimore, thanks to Francis Scott Key and "The Star-Spangled Banner," few know or remember what transpired on the hill overlooking the harbor. Buried there could lie remnants of the trenches that helped Baltimore fend off advancing British land forces and end the War of 1812.

In many team sports, only one coach can say that the most recent season ended in a way that was satisfying. In men's lacrosse, that feeling of contentment can be ascribed to Duke's John Danowski, which is why Navy's Rick Sowell is eager for Saturday's season opener against VMI at noon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. “It's the beginning of the year, and coming off a year when we didn't have the success that we wanted, we're chomping at the bit,” Sowell said Monday afternoon, referring to the team's 3-10 record in 2013 that included a program-worst in single-season losses and consecutive setbacks (seven)

The stream of visitors who passed through the iron gates at Fayette and Greene streets this week reverenced Edgar Allan Poe's monument and grave, but then they soon drifted along the lanes and brick paths of this historic churchyard on the western edge of downtown Baltimore. This Halloween offers visitors a chance to go one better. The catacombs under the 1851 Westminster Presbyterian Church will be open Thursday. And while I am not much of a believer in ghosts, this quirky part of old-time Baltimore is a must destination for the ghost-believing or merely historically curious.

Gary Jobson is not only a Hall of Fame sailor. He is also something of a history buff when it comes to a sport that has been a big part of his life since childhood. Which is why Jobson, of Annapolis, was happy to witness this year's America's Cup competition in San Francisco Bay up close, as someone who could both enjoy the event and appreciate its historical context. For those who were busy following the Ravens, Orioles or even Maryland, Oracle Team USA came back from the largest deficit in the competition's history to win and retain the cup. Trailing 8-1 to Emirates Team New Zealand, Oracle took the last eight races to win the 17-race competition and put Jimmy Spithill, the Australian skipper who headed Oracle's crew, in the company of the sport's legendary figures.

Dudley said Shew had not shown a pressing reason to move her husband, Harry, who has been buried for nearly five years at Elkridge's Meadowridge Memorial Park in a plot owned by Marie DeFlavis, his mother."If you buried [Harry Shew] in your back yard, you wouldn't speak to each other," Dudley said of the conflicts between Shew and DeFlavis, who sat at opposite sides of the courtroom.

The cremated remains of 240 dogs recovered in an animal hoarding case in Montgomery County four years ago will be buried in a brief ceremony Tuesday at the pet cemetery at the Baltimore Humane Society in Reisterstown. Shelley Janashek, a volunteer for a dog rescue group who was a witness in the case, asked the society for the burial. "I didn't want them to be trash," said Janashek. "I don't have the money to bury this volume of animals. " Wendy Goldband, a spokeswoman for the society, said as far as anyone knows this is the first time the 86-year-old organization has conducted a burial for remains found under these circumstances.

A letter from a reader in Ruxton recommended a visit to a place guarded by entry gates and stone walls. Juliana C. Watts made her first trip to Baltimore Cemetery this month. She and a nephew were searching for ancestors interred there. She told me, "It sits way up there, as if the city is not there at all. " She remarked on its compelling physical beauty and character. I took the suggestion and returned to Baltimore Cemetery, a place I had not been for a decade. Baltimore Cemetery, where about 118,000 people are buried, is a place worth visiting.
