I sometimes wonder if we're getting a little too over concerned about the chemicals to which we are exposed ("City stumbles on lead paint cleanup" March 6). Lead, asbestos, cigarettes, mercury, etc. are now regarded as more dangerous than a rattlesnake in your bed. Somehow I have reached the age of 80, regarded by some as normal, have paid my bills and have raised normal children, but in my youth I used to rub mercury with my bare fingers onto coins to make them shine, smoked a pack of cigarettes per day while in the service, have lived in a house with asbestos insulation and still live with asbestos wrapped heating pipes, and used to spend my working days as an electronic repairman using lead wire solder as a toothpick or as a cowboy dangles a straw from his mouth, and committed numerous other misuses of methane, chlorine, etc. So how do we explain these 90-year-old individuals who have lived likewise, two pack a day smokers and such?

There's no escaping that Saturday's 62-7 loss to Colonial Athletic Association foe James Madison was Towson's worst in program history. But the 55-point margin of defeat was the last thing on coach Rob Ambrose's mind when he spoke Monday afternoon during his weekly conference call arranged by the league. “I'm sure there's a little bit or a concern, but we've got bigger issues than what the score of the game was,” he said. “We need to overcome our injury level and overcome our youth and a little bit of finishing the game.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette isn't ready to press the panic button on rightfielder Nick Markakis. Duquette said confidently Friday he expected Markakis -- who had surgery Thursday to repair a torn abdominal muscle -- to be ready to return by the beginning of Spring Training. "The Markakis surgery is a minor sugery," Duquette said. "He should be ready to go by spring training according to the doctors. From what I know about it, I'm not concerned. At his age and the way he keeps himself in shape, he should be ready to go in six weeks.

The 56 points kicker Chris Moller posted last season to lead Morgan State included 10 field goals in 16 attempts. This fall has been a more trying time for the redshirt sophomore. Moller has converted just 4-of-10 field goals thus far for the Bears (3-3 overall and 2-1 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), but three of those attempts were blocked, a deficiency in the blocking that worries coach Lee Hull. “It concerns me a lot because you can't pinpoint just one area,” he said Tuesday during his weekly conference call arranged by the league.

Editor: It might surprise you to know that the Bel Air, Maryland residents do not want you to build an enormous Walmart Supercenter in our residential neighborhoods, a store that will destroy our community. We realize that the "bottom line" is your concern. Our concerns are: safety of the children walking to school, residents walking to a nearby shopping center and I don't believe that they would walk to Walmart, bikers and runners no matter the...

No. 2 Johns Hopkins disposed of UMBC, 12-5, at theKonica Minolta Face-Off Classicat M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, but reining in penalties figures to be a topic the team will address this week during practice. The Blue Jays were flagged for six penalties, including a pair of 60-second penalties for sophomore long-stick midfielder Jack Reilly on the same play in the second quarter. The Retrievers were awarded seven extra-man opportunities, which nearly matched the 10 man-down chances Johns Hopkins had surrendered in five contests prior to Saturday.

The characterization by Adil E. Shamoo and Bonnie Bricker ("Egypt's hopeful path," June 7) of Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate for the upcoming Egyptian presidential runoff, as a moderate is an exercise in wishful thinking. The Arabic website of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood regularly features articles denying the Holocaust and warning Muslims against the covetous and exploitative nature of the "Jewish character," extolling jihad and martyrdom, and condemning Egypt's peace treaty with Israel.

Sidle up to the bar. Or mosey or walk or run. I don't care how you get here. But I have a simple question for you, and it has been a while since we chatted: What has you worried the most about these Orioles right now? OK, granted, the club is 39-30, in second place and is just 2.5 games behind the Yankees for first. That's remarkable. No one expected it. I know I didn't.  But now that they have hung around in late June, you want to see this keep going. And just when you think it'll fade, the Orioles destroy some clubs or pull a few extra-innings victories out of a hat and make you wonder whether this can be sustained.

I just finished reading the article, "Michael Brown's parents come to Baltimore to help information initiative," Sept. 28," and I thought that I missed something in it so I read it four more times. Lo-and-behold, I did not miss anything. I just thought that perhaps the grieving parents - and I sincerely pray not only for their grief to be lessened by the many graces of God but also for the repose of their son's soul - might have thought to address that fact that since their son met an untimely death, so have over 10,000 other blacks shot and/or knifed to death in the many crime-ridden streets of our nation's cities.

I'm sending a big thank you to all the families on the west side of N. Glenmore and N. Osborne avenues. They shared electricity, via extension cords, with families on the east side of the streets. They also shared freezer space and made trips for gasoline. The east side of the streets were without power for almost a week. This emergency provided a perfect example of neighbors helping neighbors. Fran Sterner Catonsville

Thanks to redshirt sophomore running back Herb Walker Jr., Morgan State has the 10th-best rushing offense in the Football Championship Subdivision at 259.8 yards per game. Things, however, are not as good on the other side of the ball. While the Bears (2-3 overall and 1-1 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) rank decently in the country in average points allowed (39th at 22.6) and average yards surrendered (48th at 361.6), the defense also ranks 93rd against the run (217 yards per game)

Hampden residents are threatening to leave their famous 34th Street Christmas lights off in an effort to get the city's attention after a recent string of violent crimes in the neighborhood. A 67-year-old man was attacked and beaten unconscious Monday afternoon while picking up trash from the sidewalk at the corner of Falls Road and West 36th Street, police said. Three hours later, a man with a gun held up a Subway restaurant on Falls Road. Bob Hosier, who claims to have started the Northeast Baltimore holiday tradition more than 60 years ago, said he worries about the safety of the tourists who flock each year to see the hub cap Christmas tree and big red lighted crab.

TORONTO - The Orioles arrived home from Canada on Sunday night and will get a day off before having workouts Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter will try to hold Wednesday's workout around the same time as Game 1 to get his players on the same clock. They're likely to be the early game with the other ALDS game being played on the West Coast, but if the Orioles play at 8 p.m. Thursday, the workout likely would be around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

TORONTO -- Even though Orioles third basemen entered the final regular-season series having committed five errors over the past seven games, manager Buck Showalter isn't concerned about the position heading into the postseason. Defense has been one of the keys to the Orioles' success over the past three seasons. But since they lost American League Platinum Glove winner Manny Machado for the season following right-knee surgery in August, the club has struggled to find a steady replacement.

Your recent editorial stated that there is little reason to require a photo ID to vote ("The phantom menace," Feb. 27). But there is another way to look at this. Two of my children have been away from home for several years, yet they still show up as active voters on the rolls at our precinct, despite my telling officials there that my children have left home. The elections judge writes this down at every election. But when that information gets back to election headquarters, anyone with access could copy those names and use them to cast ballots elsewhere during early voting.

This season Ralph Friedgen matches the longest tenure of any Maryland football coach in the past 75 years. His teams have ended Florida State's ACC dominance, posted the best three-year run in program history and earned five bowl invitations. Yet entering his 10th season at his alma mater, Friedgen is clearly embattled. His Terps closed last season with seven consecutive defeats to finish 2-10, their third losing season in five years and worst since 1967. "It doesn't really concern me," Friedgen said Monday at the ACC's preseason kickoff.

As their corporate partners express concern about the Ray Rice case, the Ravens have been reaching out — courting them anew — to try to ensure that dozens of long-held relationships and the millions in revenue they provide remain intact. In the strongest-worded statement from a Ravens sponsor yet, Southwest Airlines on Monday called the allegations of misconduct by NFL players "disturbing," adding that it was ready to "take prompt action," depending on the course of events. The club, which sent an open message to sponsors and fans Monday, wants to be certain its fabric of about 100 sponsors — both local and national firms — does not begin to unravel over questions surrounding its handling of the Rice situation.

The banned amphetamine that will keep Chris Davis off the baseball diamond for 25 games has become a go-to for stressed college students and worn athletes looking for a quick boost of energy. Adderall acts like a "tremendous jolt of caffeine" that some have used to fight through fatigue before a big test or make it through a tough game, said Eric Strain, director at the Johns Hopkins Center for Substance Abuse Treatment and Research. But the drug is not supposed to be used for that and is only approved to treat a few illnesses, including attention-deficit disorder and the sleeping ailment narcolepsy.
