Reporter John Fritze's recent article showed what hateful hypocrites the Carroll Commissioners, Del. Justin Ready and Rep. Andy Harris really are ( "Carroll Co. officials push back on shelter for immigrant children," July 11). They are joined by the local tea party group, which suggested in an email blast to its members that the children be met by an armed militia if they are sent to Westminster. The Carroll Commissioners are quite fond of publicly praying for God's guidance at their meetings.

We thank the nameless graffiti artist in Carroll County who spray painted a denunciation of an aborted plan to house some of the thousands of unaccompanied minors who have crossed the southern U.S. border in recent months at a military facility near Westminster. He or she has told us all we need to know about what's driving the furor over these children. No, we're not going to harp on the first part of the message — "No illeagles here" — and claim that stupidity is at the heart of things.

At the funeral Tuesday for Justin Nicholas Diggs, family and friends remembered a child who loved the outdoors, God and helping others. Justin, a 12-year-old Pikesville Middle School honor student, was killed July 8 when a tree fell on him during a violent thunderstorm at River Valley Ranch, a Christian summer camp in the Millers community in Carroll County. Eight other children in the camp were treated for minor injuries. During the service at New Psalmist Baptist Church in Baltimore, camp program director John Zeigenfuse recounted how Justin once told his mother he wasn't calling home often while at River Valley because he was busy helping other campers.

The recipe is familiar, but with a fresh twist. Mix the salty, crunchy goodness of traditional munchies with the spicy kick reminiscent of Maryland's steamed crabs - and add the power of several professional Baltimore athletes for good measure - and you've got a new line of snacks with hometown flavor. Crab-inspired cheese curls, buttery popcorn and sunflower seeds are some of the product offerings from Home Team Snacks, headquartered in Carroll County. Launched in 2012, the company is the brainchild of Marc Heyman and Jeff Hinton, 49-year-old Baltimore-area natives who grew up in Mount Washington and Catonsville, respectively.
