Earlier today, as we were looking at the warnings of the impending White Doom from Above, I was asked to weigh in on the northeaster/nor'easter  issue.  Both terms refer to a storm with northeast winds. Merriam-Webster's Unabridged lists only the first spelling, tracing it to 1753. The Oxford English Dictionary  has a 1753 citation from the Boston Post-boy for northeaster  and an 1837 citation for nor'easter from a translation of Aristophanes' Knights .  So both have pedigree, which leaves us in the treacherous situation of basing a judgment on social, cultural, or regional factors.  My suspicion is that nor'easter  is a colloquial shortening of the original word, which is borne out by some of the evidence, such as the OED 's citation from A.J. Cronin's Hatter's Castle (1931)

When Dennis ONeal returned to his car last week after eating lunch in Harbor East, he was stunned to see a parking ticket on his windshield. And for good reason: The $32 ticket had been issued just nine minutes after he paid for a full hour of street parking on South Central Avenue. "This is an obvious error," the Canton resident said in an interview. "It's so simple. " ONeal provided The Baltimore Sun a copy of his kiosk receipt showing he paid $2 to park from 12:06 p.m. to 1:07 p.m. He also provided a copy of the citation.

Toll cheaters who use Maryland E-ZPass lanes without a transponder will get hit with a $50 fine and could have their vehicle registration suspended under a law that took effect July 1. The Maryland Transportation Authority, operator of eight toll facilities, has begun the transition to the new collection process, which officials said will plug a loophole and allow them to recover as much as $7 million in overdue tolls. "It's not about money," said Bruce Gartner, MdTA acting executive secretary.

Gov. Martin O'Malley said Tuesday that state law bars speed camera contractors from being paid based on the number of citations issued or paid - a so-called bounty system approach used by Baltimore City, Baltimore County and elsewhere in Maryland. "The law says you're not supposed to charge by volume. I don't think we should charge by volume," O'Malley said. "If any county is, they need to change their program. " In brief comments, O'Malley weighed in for the first time on criticism of speed cameras since The Baltimore Sun published an investigation of the devices, focusing on the city's network of 83 radar-equipped cameras.

For decades, Kay McConnell and her family joined those who lace up skates and take to Lake Roland in Robert E. Lee Park when winter freezes ice over the former reservoir. The McConnells' three children were on the ice as young as toddlers, one of them using an old sled as a walker of sorts. After measuring the ice to be at least 5 inches thick, with at least five days of sub-freezing temperatures, neighbors around the lake's north end would flock to the ice - so long as snowfall didn't make the surface too bumpy.

Baltimore housing officials have ended a short-lived program to label property inspectors as being in the “shark tank” or “crab barrel” based partly on how many citations they issue to property owners. Eric Booker, the assistant commissioner for code enforcement, announced the new ranking system to inspectors in an Aug. 29 email obtained by The Baltimore Sun. “It will highlight the top inspectors, the 'LEADERS', by category as well as the bottom dwellers, the 'LAGGARDS',” Booker wrote.

Everyone is a beginner at something, and we have many words for beginners: novice, neophyte, newbie, abecedarian , rookie, and today's choice tiro . Tyro (pronounced TYE-roh)
