A car caught fire in Mount Washington Wednesday night, sending flames as high as 20 feet in the air, according to witnesses. The fire department said no injuries were reported and the fire was put out shortly after firefighters arrived on the scene in the 2500 block of Manhattan Ave. around 8:30 p.m. The cause is under investigation, Baltimore fire department spokesman Ian Brennan said. Nikolaus Dunlap, a 14-year-old who was visiting from Alaska with his mother, said he and his sister went out on the street, saw the flames and called 911. Dunlap and his mother said they didn't see anyone near the car, which they said was parallel-parked when the fire started.

I read in The Sun that city agencies are preparing for another round of budget cuts to be submitted in next year's budget ("City agencies preparing for another round of cuts," Oct. 14). Have they ever thought of taking away the vehicles that city employees use every day on the job? Every city, state, and federal government agency gives its employees automobiles to drive to work (and I am sure for their personal use, as well). Private industry does not give vehicles to their employees.

Electric, hybrid and small cars will grab center stage at the Detroit auto show this week, as the industry adapts to a world reshaped by recession and environmental worries. Ford wants to build on success in midsize sedans and reignite small-car sales, while Hyundai aims to extend last year's triumph in budget-conscious models. GM and Chrysler will start fresh with electric vehicles but also try to boost their small-car credibility. Toyota hopes to solidify its dominance in hybrids. The new models must be successful if automakers are to reverse last year's 21 percent sales plunge.

A busy street in downtown Baltimore might be the last place one would expect to see a bocce game going on. But just before noon Friday, with traffic rumbling by, Nicole Reedy and Jeff Stump squared off for a friendly match on a swath of grass laid down where cars would normally be parked in front of their office on West Franklin Street. A few feet away, co-workers and clients chatted while sipping wine and soft drinks under a green-roofed lean-to. It was another PARK(ing)

I would like to comment on Michael Dresser's article about "bad truck drivers" ("Can't avoid jackknifing? Don't be a truck driver," Feb. 8). Nowhere in that article did he mention the bad car drivers out there that cause 75 percent of the truck wrecks across the country. Mr. Dresser seems to have a grudge against truck drivers in general. Question to him: When was the last time you actually drove 40 tons down the road and tried to stop it on a dime because of a four-wheeler stopping in front of you on short notice?

Baltimore City is at a transportation crossroads. We can move in the direction of a safer, healthier, more sustainable and economical city - the direction in which dozens of cities across America are moving - or fall back on prioritizing cars over people. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake recently selected William Johnson as the new director of the Baltimore City Department of Transportation. The priorities that the mayor and Mr. Johnson set for Baltimore's transportation future will have a significant impact on neighborhood livability and our ability to retain current residents and attract new ones.

Video of the high speed crash that killed a bystander outside Baltimore City Hall last year shows the suspect being pulled out of his overturned car and restrained by people on scene. The footage, shot from a Maryland State Trooper's patrol car that was trailing the speeding Acura sedan, was released this week by State Police. The crash occurred on April 9, 2013, and killed city finance employee Matthew Hersl, a popular Little Italy neighborhood activist and Baltimore Orioles fan who was standing outside when the vehicle careened off of Interstate 83. Johnny Johnson, 44, the Acura's driver, pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and possession of a controlled dangerous substance on Dec. 12. The West Baltimore man was sentenced to 11 years.

The sound would loudly and routinely resonate from the Bel Air sideline, a declaration of good fortune for the school's boys lacrosse team: "Yanneee!" While none of the Bobcats had any idea what it meant, they all knew what was coming next: a chest bump of epic proportion. That's how Bel Air coach Scoop Kelly celebrated a big goal, his passion for lacrosse and for his beloved program on full display in a sudden burst of excitement. But the big goals that would have called for Kelly's sideline celebration haven't been the same this season.

Officials will announce a $200,000 grant Tuesday that will be used to furnish the Baltimore County Sheriff's department vehicles with computers. The computers will allow deputies to book suspects electronically from their cars, which will save time and cut down on paperwork when the officer delivers the suspect to the booking office. Deputies, who will be able to communicate electronically, can also use the equipment to immediately log the status of warrants and other critical data.

By the time the kids are in fifth grade, many school volunteers find it time to go back to work and are no longer able to volunteer. Not so for Ron and Wendy Duncan . But then again, they're not parents of elementary students, they're grandparents! They started volunteering when their grandson started kindergarten at Oakleigh Elementary; six years later, they are still there. As the boy moved up a grade, they moved up but they also continued to volunteer in the grades he completed.
