It's most likely that outside of the circle that once held the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum and the Chesapeake Wooden Boat Builders School, folks will never know what really happened to the decade-long partnership that was severed last month. Nor does it matter. What does matter is that what looked like, at least from a distance, had been a vibrant part of the museum is no longer. The official reason given was "the Boat school was not providing necessary support to the mission of the Museum.

George Zimmerman was not properly doing his job as a volunteer neighborhood watch captain. He had no right to follow a person and make contact with the person. If you suspect something while performing that role, you call 911 give location and stand way back, and you should not carry a gun on watch, even with a permit. How do I know this? I lived in Florida for 18 years. I was in a gated community and pulled neighborhood watch duty many times. I also had a concealed gun permit for 17 years in Florida, which is not easy to get. You get a book of laws for when you can use it. I guess George Zimmerman did not understand the laws or just did not pay attention.

Prior to the current lacrosse season, Maryland's players gathered to vote on team captains. The only representative from the defense was junior long-stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt, and it's a role he is relishing. “It's something I embrace,” he said recently. “I enjoy being a captain. It's a great privilege that I was picked by my peers to be in that situation. I really do enjoy it.” The Terps defense was ravaged by graduation, which sapped the unit of three close defensemen, the long-stick midfielder and one of two short-stick defensive midfielders.

While watching this, I can only think of one thing: Where is Captain America's helmet? I am an intensive care unit nurse at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the first trauma hospital in the world.

As a passionate aerospace buff and American taxpayer, I'm discouraged a man of Capt. Gregory McWherter's talent, training and expertise would be relieved of his Blue Angels command based on allegations of a "nasty work environment. " I've read Susan Reimer 's account ( "Where are all the heroes?" April 28) and searched the Internet for what exactly Captain McWherter said or did, and I could find nothing. The word "allegation" is everywhere, yet there's no mention of the person or persons who filed these sexual harassment complaints.

The Italian liner Costa Concordia, with 4,200 passengers aboard, piled up in January on the rocky shoreline of Tuscany, tearing out its bottom and capsizing. The death toll has risen to 25, with the recovery of eight more bodies last week. Seven people remain missing. Capt. Francesco Schettino, the Costa Concordia's master, violated one of the noblest and most sacred traditions of the sea when he did not direct the evacuation of passengers and crew. There can be nothing more terrifying for passengers than to see crew members going over the side, as has been alleged by disaster survivors, who described a scene of panic and confusion.

In Baltimore Heritage's "Baltimore Building of the Week" series, John Breihan wrote about this shipbuilder's residence, citing its design "with the dormer windows and high-relief moldings characteristic of English Georgian architecture. It was lovingly restored and adapted for modern living by the Hepner family. " In 1967, the home's tale became that of Jean Hepner's transformation of a condemned and crumbling structure to a magnificent restoration.

That honesty came through as he discussed the No. 2 Sea Gulls' surprising 8-7 overtime loss to Capital Athletic Conference foe Christopher Newport on Wednesday. “We didn't get it done on Wednesday,” Berkman said Friday morning. “We just weren't sharp. We weren't passing and catching well. We talked about a trap game all week, and we didn't play well. We threw numerous balls out of bounds playing catch with guys next to us on Wednesday that we hadn't done all season.
