Reporter Jamie Smith Hopkins ' article on economic growth in Maryland discussed what can be done when most of the Mid-Atlantic is caught in slow growth ("A bumpy year for Maryland's economy," June 15). The antidote for slow growth is visionary leadership - and a willingness to buck regional trends. In Maryland, the prevailing view that increasing economic activity is the political equivalent of fracking must be changed. More state revenue is not always the solution. In fact, expanding the sales tax holiday can create more job opportunities.

Here we are again. Americans with leftist values bring more immorality to the world. Whatever one's view on the appropriateness of going into Iraq, strong, adult and moral Americans stay and finish their job ( "Obama has painted himself into a foreign policy corner," June 16). But again, just as they did in Vietnam, the political left acts like weak children with no moral compass. They abandon the messiness of life and our moral commands as Americans. They leave millions to the oppression, rape, torture and murder that will come from people, this time not communists but radical Islamists.

I am not unsympathetic to people who are utter failures.I realize not everyone can be a success, just as not everyone can be handsome, just as not everyone can be me.Which is what I tried to keep in mind as I watched the first week of Chevy Chase's new talk show.As I am not a TV critic, I am under no obligation to review new shows.But when certain debuts go beyond mere failure and enter the range of debacle -- Joe McGinniss' new biography of Ted Kennedy, for instance -- they take on wider societal implications that the rest of us may learn from.

Chevy Chase Federal Savings Bank, which lost $3.5 million in the first three quarters of its current fiscal year, has been found by federal examiners to have insufficient reserves on hand to meet a federal capital requirement.According to a Securities and Exchange Commission document filed Tuesday, the Montgomery County thrift had more than $330 million in risk-based capital on June 30, a little more than $27 million below the required amount. Risk-based capital, the strictest of three capital requirements, involves money set aside to protect against losses from bad loans.

Colin Cloherty was a seldom-used tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, his third team in his first two years in the NFL, when the league locked out its players at the start of a long, contentious labor showdown in 2011. A former standout at Brown, where he double-majored in history and political science, Cloherty pored over every memo the National Football League Players Association sent to its players after the union decertified and sued the NFL, and he listened intently during every conference call.

Regarding "Putin ready to invade Ukraine; Kiev warns of war" (March 1), there's little chance that Russian President Vladimir Putin will be misled by President Barack Obama's warning, since it's well known that Mr. Obama's inner circle of senior advisors relish diplomatic language. The dreadful finality about a confrontation with Russia makes Mr. Obama's warning laughable. The absence of a robust U.S. foreign policy will make it difficult to cull together a believable U.S. response.

Regarding your editorial on Maryland's historically black colleges and universities, U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake's recent ruling on the issue is an opportunity for the state to help its HBCUs garner the resources they need to succeed ( "Maryland HBCU case: A ruling without remedies," Oct. 13). The larger question is, how can the state remedy this situation without burdening Maryland taxpayers? Building larger endowments at HBCUs is the only sustainable strategy to reduce dependency on state appropriations.

There's a lot going on, and Range is as big as its name. The restaurant, open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, occupies the top level of the newly renovated retail atrium inside the Chevy Chase Pavilion.

South River junior forward Kacie Longo consistently scored goals in the regular season, contributing at least one in all but two of the team's 14 games. In the Class 4A playoffs, where the No. 4 Seahawks (17-2) meet four-time defending champion Bethesda-Chevy Chase for the championship Friday night at UMBC, however, Longo has been on fire. She scored four goals against North Point in a 7-2 victory in the 4A East regional semifinal. When the Seahawks trailed No. 6 Arundel, 2-0, in the regional championship, she tied the game with two scores in the second half and the team advanced with a 3-2 overtime win.

There is Chris Brown, these days sporting a neck tattoo that looks like ex-girlfriend Rihanna after he bloodied and bruised her. And Charlie Sheen, whose assault of his wife is somehow just another part of his troubled yet comedic persona. Sharon Love is just warming up on the issue of relationship violence. Normally soft-spoken, and by nature a sunny personality, Love grows outraged as the subject takes her from feckless celebrities to the anonymous victims sheltered by such groups as Baltimore's House of Ruth "They're hiding from these men. They're the ones hiding, and these men are running free," she says.
