Marylanders began digging out Sunday from the great blizzard of February 2010, but they face the prospect of limited mobility for at least the next day or two - and more snow on the horizon. With highways and most major thoroughfares cleared of snow, plows and salt trucks across the Baltimore area labored to open neighborhood streets, rural roads and cul-de-sacs. Local officials cautioned, though, that it might be late today or even Tuesday before they manage to reach those who are still snowbound.

A Baltimore police officer who authorities say shot a man who attacked him in Middle River last month has been cleared of wrongdoing, Baltimore County police said Thursday. The officer was justified in his actions during the Sept. 20 incident on Red Rose Farm Road, State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger's office said. The officer was identified as Officer Michael Nolan-Anderson by the city police department and by Shellenberger's office. County police say Nolan-Anderson had gotten off work and was driving about 12:30 a.m. when one of two intoxicated men "somehow damaged the mirror on his vehicle.

Question: We will be clearing a lot of ground this spring. Do you have information on that? Answer: Try to leave as many desirable native plants as you can. For help identifying what you have, send us digital photos through our website's "Send A Question" feature. When you create bare or disturbed soil on slopes, have a plan to prevent erosion on sloped area. You don't want to lose your topsoil. Volunteer plants will move in unless you fill cleared space quickly with mulch or desirable plants.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake struck a resonant chord when proclaiming "this city isn't clean until your street is clean," reassuring residents that she is sensitive to the need for thorough snow removal in all parts of the city. That said, the state, through the MTA, could have partnered with the city to take immediate steps to ensure that the city was open, well before it was able to be completely clean. By focusing first on mass transit, clearing both rail lines and bus routes, the dual goal of keeping emergency routes open and cars off the street could have been met. An important distinction between regions that can respond to snow emergencies and ones like Maryland lies in the responsiveness of their transit systems.

Last week, the weekly Baltimore Farmers Market & Bazaar put a no-smoking ban into effect. This market has been around for 34 years, selling locally produced goods at stalls set up under the Jones Falls Expressway. On a typical Sunday, the crowds are large, the aisles tightly packed with arugula eaters. Banning smoking there is a no-brainer. You wonder why it took so long. A market that sells cheese made from the milk of Garrett County goats, bacon from hormone-free Carroll County hogs, and heirloom apples from Western Maryland is not likely to be a gathering spot for people who want their lungs filled with tobacco smoke (whether or not the tobacco was locally grown)

I should like to offer one possibly controversial addition to Roy Whitely's "The snow: lessons learned" comments (Readers respond, Feb. 20) about dealing with large snowfalls. It was triggered by another item in The Sun about the towing of cars from shopping center parking lots. Rather than allowing cars to be towed from these lots, use the principle of eminent domain to seize these lots or portions thereof for the duration of the snow emergency as short-term parking havens for cars that need to be displaced for snow clearing operations, with, of course, adequate compensation to the lot owners.

DETROIT -- The Orioles sprayed beer and champagne at each other for the second time this season, but it was almost like they were going through the motions after Sunday's heart-stopping victory over the Detroit Tigers propelled them into the American League Championship Series. Their division title celebration was more intense because it was the culmination of a terrific regular season. This time, there was the sense in the visitors' clubhouse at Comerica Park that the postseason had only just begun.

Maryland's legislature decided to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana for a few reasons. Lawmakers concluded that police and prosecutors should not be focusing their attention on what is increasingly viewed by the public as a relatively harmless vice; they expressed concern that criminal convictions related to marijuana possession were harming the employment and educational prospects of thousands of Marylanders; and they were alarmed...

As a former facilities manager at the Church of the Redeemer on North Charles Street, I am appalled at the city of Baltimore issuing fines for sidewalk clearing during recent snows at this church ( "Plenty of snow this winter brings plenty of fines, too," Feb. 26). In most city neighborhoods there is a grass divider between the street and the sidewalk. This is not true along North Charles Street where sidewalks border the street. Compressed snow from plowing becomes frozen and very difficult, if not impossible, to remove during freezing temperatures.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan - The first four confirmed civilian deaths since the start of U.S. airstrikes on Afghanistan were employees of a United Nations mine-clearing project - men working for an agency dedicated to removing the deadly aftermath of earlier wars who became victims of the latest one. "We have lost 30 workers in the last decade on minefields, but this is the first time we have lost people in the office. This is the tragedy of war," said a sad and weary-looking Syed Ahmad Farid Elmi, acting director of Afghan Technical Consultants, or ATC. A twist making the deaths even more painful, friends said, is that the tower 200 yards away that is believed to have been the U.S. target was not a Taliban transmission facility but a defunct radio broadcasting station.

A cold front that moved through overnight was forecast to bring cooler weather Monday and through the week. Overnight lows were forecast in the 50s, and highs Monday are forecast in the mid-70s, about 10 degrees cooler than weekend temperatures. Partly cloudy to clear skies are forecast Monday, with blustery winds of 10-20 mph. Calm winds are forecast the rest of the week, but otherwise the weather is forecast to be the same -- with mostly clear skies and highs in the lower 70s and lows in the 50s, and possibly upper 40s in some areas.
