Regarding The Sun's recent editorial on the Baltimore City Public Schools $31 million shortfall, budgetary issues under any domain are very serious matters ( "Seeing red over city schools budget," April 15). Whenever a group of decision makers without strong and practical fiscal skills are the ones being relied upon for providing oversight and control for making very difficult budgetary decisions, there will always be illogical responses. Why would any competent decision maker consider depleting their "rainy day fund" for resolving operational type issues, especially when that source of revenue is not adequately funded in the first place?

A snowy winter kept the state's brush fire season at bay into March, but now Maryland forestry officials are conducting controlled burns to prevent accidental blazes later this spring. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is conducting burns at Sandy Point State Park and on Hart-Miller Island on Thursday, officials said. Trained forest service crews set the fires using torches fueled by a solution of diesel and gasoline, said  Monte Mitchell, state fire superviser with the natural resources department's forest service.

NEW YORK - This wasn't the first impression right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez wanted to give his new team or his new fan base, but the Orioles' top offseason acquisition has struggled through his first two starts with the club. Following the Orioles' 4-2 loss to New York in the Yankees' home opener at Yankees Stadium on Monday afternoon, Jimenez talked about being crippled by not being able to locate his breaking ball. The result was a short 4 2/3-inning outing in which he issued five walks and was chased from the game after reaching 109 pitches, the first time he didn't get out of the fifth inning in 11 starts dating back to last August.

It's amazing that the only way Hobby Lobby employees can get birth control is by someone else paying for it ( "Don't open Pandora's box," March 24). What is stopping any Hobby Lobby employee from paying for this themselves? I can tell you I paid for my own birth control my entire reproductive life and find ridiculous the entitlement attitude women have today.

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.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 27, 2014
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.
