Victims advocates are expressing dismay over a decision this week by Maryland's highest court that could lead to the removal of hundreds of names from a list of registered sex offenders in the state. The advocates say removing names from the registry could put women and children at greater risk by leaving families less able to identify potential predators in their midst. But critics of the list argue there's no evidence it has resulted in fewer sexual assaults or deterred offenders from committing such crimes.

When Jamal Cannady of Sharptown reflects on his time at summer camp, his voice warms with the onrush of happy memories and enthusiasm. Ziplining, swimming, boating — he does it all. "Things I never did before in life I get to do at camp. I like to go out on a canoe ride, go in the pool, go camping, go on a nature walk, sing songs and we do a lot of things in the woods," he said. Cannady, 32, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Since he was 2, he has spent part of his summer at Easter Seals' Camp Fairlee, a camp established to give children and adults with a spectrum of disabilities the opportunity to experience everything offered at a typical summer camp.

Happiness doesn't come in a red can. Obesity does. That's the tag line from a commercial that will begin airing soon in the Baltimore area, and it's a not-so-subtle attack on Coca-Cola mounted by a group of local health advocates including Howard County's Horizon Foundation, the Maryland State Medical Society (MedChi), the American Heart Association and People Acting Together in Howard (PATH). The ad is a parody of a Coke campaign that features people handing out bottles of cola to strangers around the world in an uplifting, music-filled celebration.

This summer the folks at Bay Theatre are realizing their long-held goal of presenting a children's show during these normally dark theater months. Since the beginning of June, a delightful production of Will Bartlett's musical, "Rumple Who?" has played to enthusiastic, multigenerational audiences at Saturday and Sunday matinee performances. A whimsical favorite of Bay's founder and artistic director, Janet Luby, who was cast in the off-off-Broadway production about 20 years ago, "Rumple Who" is a gentle, upbeat musical adaptation of the familiar fairy tale "Rumpelstiltskin" that continues a long, successful run at New York's 13th Street Repertory Company.

Gary Gardner was leaving a community meeting in the Wilde Lake Village Center one night last summer when an elderly woman who lived nearby approached him. The woman was frantic, Gardner recalled. "Have you seen my husband?" she asked, showing a picture to Gardner, the deputy chief of the Howard County Police Department. The woman told Gardner that her husband, a former triathlete who was still in great physical shape, had wandered off from their nearby home. She was worried because he suffered from Alzheimer's and often left without notice.
