When Stephen Huppaty, owner of OzCorp Fine Builders, moved to Baltimore from Australia in 1997, he was intrigued by an interesting appendage to the miles of brick row houses -- rooftop decks. In the following years, these playpens in the sky would continue popping up in neighborhoods like Fells Point, Federal Hill, Locust Point, Butchers Hill and Canton. To Huppaty, it made perfect sense. In the tight confines of these neighborhoods, owners wishing to put additions on their row homes could either go back (given sufficient room)

Rep. Patricia Schroeder said after it was revealed that the Marine Corps wanted to ban married recruits, "If they are not allowed to be homosexuals, and they're not allowed to be married, what are they supposed to do, take cold showers?"It is pretty easy to have fun with the Marines on this. Certainly, the way the attempt at policy change was handled was inept. The order was issued before the commandant had cleared it with the secretary of the Navy or the secretary of Defense. So no sooner had the directive gone out than it was rescinded.

Of the 12 Johns Hopkins players who have caught passes thus far, more than half of them are wide receivers. In fact, the top four in receptions and yards are wideouts. But in just four games, sophomores Quinn Donaldson and Bradley Munday have emerged as senior quarterback Braden Anderson's favorite targets. The 6-foot, 190-pound Donaldson leads the No. 10 Blue Jays (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference) in catches (18), yards (301) and receiving touchdowns (three)

The Army Corps of Engineers said it will not issue a permit for a proposed liquefied natural gas terminal at Sparrows Point and a pipeline through Maryland to Pennsylvania until the project's developer has complied with federal wildlife regulations, prepared mitigation plans for wetlands that might be disturbed during construction and met other requests for information. The Corps is the second agency this month to question plans by Virginia-based AES Corp. to build the terminal and lay 88 miles of pipe to transport the gas. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to delay its vote on the project, scheduled for tomorrow, until concerns about habitats for the bog turtle and Indiana bat can be addressed.

A Morgan State defense that finished 2013 ranked eighth in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in average yards allowed (391.8) and ninth in average points surrendered (30.6) could be weaker after the departure of five starters. But the Bears return three of four linebackers who earned a majority of starts last season, and that group was cited by rookie head coach Lee Hull as being critical to leading the defense. “We're really counting on those guys to be the anchor of our defense,” Hull said Tuesday during the MEAC's weekly conference call.

A new policy by the Army Corps of Engineers could substantially weaken protection of the nation's remaining wetlands, federal officials and environmentalists say. Critics say that a corps letter, dated Oct. 31 and written without the knowledge of other federal agencies that oversee wetlands, retreats from a decade-old policy preserving the nation's wetlands. "This letter signals the end of no net loss of wetlands within the regulatory program," said Julie Sibbing, wetlands legislative representative for the National Wildlife Federation.
