After 13 years of experience in Maryland real estate, David Orso decided to use his skills to better equip those entering the housing market by writing a book. That this effort would also become a way to pay tribute to his wife was a heartbreaking coincidence. The book, "Step Inside: The Unfiltered Truth About Listing and Selling Your Home," reveals insider advice on finding the best agent, listing and pricing a home, roles of listing agents, and how to go from listed to sold smoothly.

We were saddened to hear of the accidental exposure of YMCA campers to excessive levels of pool chemicals at Camp Letts in Edgewater ( "Anne Arundel campers sickened by chemicals in pool," July 9). With proper pool design, operation and maintenance, this type of accident is preventable. Ideally, the pool water pump and pool chemical feeders should be operationally linked to prevent sudden influxes of excess chemical following a lull in pumping. Accidents like the one at Camp Letts could be avoided in the future if pools are designed and operated according to specifications in the new Model Aquatic Health Code.

Heaviest and tallest went first, so they could support the lighter ones on the other side. The strongest person, who could climb over by himself, went last. "We didn't have any rush-ins and failures," counselor Kyle Felix told the group, before congratulating them on a job well- done. The group of 14 teens are in the middle of a new two-week, leadership-in-training program at Camp Letts in Edgewater, run by the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington.

Ten-year-old Marlee Orr spent three days canoeing with friends, observing deer in their natural habitat and sleeping in a rustic cabin last week. Normally, she goes straight home after school. "I don't really get to run around and stuff," said Marlee, who attends Oakland Mills Middle School. But getting kids outside and giving them an opportunity to appreciate the environment is one of the goals of the school's outdoor education program. Beginning Oct. 1, Marlee and the rest of the Oakland Mills sixth-graders spent three days at Camp Letts, a YMCA facility in Edgewater.
