The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments last week about the Affordable Care Act's requirement that employers of a certain size provide health care plans that pay for birth control for women. One of the plaintiffs, Hobby Lobby, a chain of craft stores in the South owned by a religious family, does not object to providing all forms of birth control. The family objects only to the IUD and two drugs commonly known as "the morning after pill" and "the week after pill" because, they believe, this device and these drugs would prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to a woman's uterus.

The strong desire to retain local control over the management of the county school system expressed this week by Superintendent Barbara Canavan is one of those general sentiments it's easy to agree with. Get into the specifics, though, and reality creeps in. Most people are all for local control until they disagree with the local people in control. Then they go to their state delegate or member of Congress or some other person elected to an office that isn't particularly local.

Each week, The Baltimore Sun will publish a Q&A with a college lacrosse player to get you better acquainted with the player and his or her team. Today's guest is Loyola Maryland midfielder Taryn VanThof, a junior who set a school and Patriot League record for most draw controls with 15 against Lafayette two weeks ago. Her career total of 157 is closing in on the school record of 180 draw controls. A native of Livonia, N.Y., about 30 minutes south of Rochester, VanThof bounced back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2012 to earn first-team All-Big East honors last season.

On the page after your chilling profile of Columbia Mall killer Darion Marcus Aguilar, whose purchase and firing of a shotgun led to the tragic deaths of two young people, a story appears in which Republican gubernatorial candidate David R. Craig announced his intention to repeal Maryland's stricter gun laws ( "Craig vows to reverse gun laws, seek sales tax break for Md. goods," March 12). That's just what we need, Mr. Craig: Make it even easier for mentally disturbed people to get a hold of weapons to kill innocents.

The Maryland women's lacrosse program can be counted on to provide instant offense when needed . That trait served the Terps well Saturday afternoon. The second-ranked Terps used a timely offense and a crushing defense to rout No. 5 Notre Dame, 16-10, in a key Atlantic Coast Conference game before an announced 1,093 at the Maryland Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. It was the first-ever game between the teams - Maryland is in its last season in the ACC before joining the Big Ten, and Notre Dame is a newcomer to the conference.

An 82-year-old Westminster woman was killed in a car crash in Marriottsville Thursday evening when her car veered off the road and struck a tree, Howard County police said. Doris Lee Johnson, of the 2200 block of Bluebird Dr., had a "serious medical emergency," an investigation found, and lost control of her car while driving northeast on Marriottsville Road near Driver Road just after 5 p.m. Johnson's Toyota Rav4 hit a tree and rolled onto its side, police said. She was wearing her seatbelt, and neither speed nor alcohol appeared to be a factor in the crash, police said.

The swiftly unfolding of events in Ukraine over the weekend saw chanting crowds depose the country's president, political prisoners freed from jail, the emergence of an interim government led by opposition figures and warrants for the arrest of former security officials who ordered police to fire on demonstrators in Kiev. The rapid developments apparently caught both U.S. and European Union officials by surprise, coming as they did only hours after those powers had signed a deal with Russia for a more gradual transition.

A Catonsville-based group of nuns on Monday filed an appeal in a case centered on the federal health care law's requirement to provide contraceptive coverage for employees. The Little Sisters of the Poor oppose birth control on religious grounds and sued last year to challenge the rule. Although the law provides exceptions for churches, the nuns were not automatically exempt from the requirement. In January, the Supreme Court issued a temporary injunction shielding the organization from the requirement, and the Little Sisters are appealing to 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver to extend that protection.

Is it fear of Maryland's law-abiding citizens actually figuring out the truth that prompts the liberal media to pass on more flawed studies as fact? The Sun's recent editorial ( "Gun control works," Feb. 20) attempts to convince us that "cherry picked" data provides clear proof that gun control works. I find a few problems with this conclusion myself. First of all, this study was performed by the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. We all know that one of Michael Bloomberg's key objectives is advocating for stricter gun control, so why would we expect anyone at the school to perform an unbiased study?

Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company and Texas Career Station located and rescued the woman, although excessive hoarding hampered the rescue attempt, Ringgold said.
