Susan Reimer 's commentary on Ray Rice and his wife Janay was informative and balanced regarding the domestic violence video that surfaced recently ( "Janay Rice stands by her man," Sept. 10). I agree that it is not productive to take an abuser's employment and status away. Mr. Rice is attending counseling, which he definitely needs. Hopefully, Janay Rice is doing so as well. Perhaps the NFL needs to do what the Catholic Church has done in cases where serious crimes are committed by those they employ: Let state authorities adjudicate the matter while providing all relevant evidence and assistance.

When Good Counsel visited No. 1 McDonogh in a highly anticipated girls soccer showdown Monday, some of the state's top talent was on display. With that, it only took a four-minute stretch in the first half for the home team's dynamic scoring tandem - juniors Bridgette Andrzejewski and Kia Rankin - to stand out. Andrzejewski found Rankin for the opening goal with 18 minutes left before intermission and, soon after, Rankin set up Andrzejewski for...

A University of Maryland commission released its report today on how the school can best  transition into the Big Ten . I wrote two stories on this. One is on how Maryland believes the time is not right to restore any of the seven previously dropped athletic teams . The school is facing a $21 million operating deficit -- much of it because the ACC continues to withhold millions of dollars in shared conference revenues as part of its dispute with the school over exit fees.

Blacks have higher rates of obesity than whites, but doctors of black patients are less likely to counsel them on how to lose weight, according to a recent study from Johns Hopkins researchers that raises thorny questions about racial stereotypes and the stigma of obesity. The findings troubled researchers who set out to tackle what role race played in weight-loss counseling. Coaching patients to eat better and exercise can help fight obesity, but too often primary-care doctors don't have the time or don't make the effort to do so, said Sara Bleich, assistant professor of health policy and management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

ABC News, which has been making its own news this week with Diane Sawyer's Jaycee Dugard interview, kept the ball rolling Monday night with a report on the Christian counseling clinics run by the husband of GOP candidate Michele Bachmann. She refers to the practice owned by her and husband, Marcus, as the "family business. " Monday night's report by ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross shows the Bachmann family business, which has received $137,000 in Medicaid money, practicing a widely discredited form of Christian "therapy" that promises to turn homosexuals into heterosexuals through prayer.

George Roberts, principal of the high school in Baltimore County, said the school applied for the Project School Emergency Response to Violence grant shortly after the shooting took place. It will assist the school with bringing in part-time counselors, or temporary crisis counselors that could be used for tragic events, such as the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., Roberts said.

A state consumer-rights watchdog on Tuesday called for formal investigations into ridesharing companies Uber and Lyft, questioning the legality of their operations in Maryland. People's Counsel Paula M. Carmody sent letters to the Maryland Public Service Commission calling for investigations into Lyft and Uber's lower-cost UberX service, which both connect passengers with independent drivers through smartphone apps. "We have every reason to believe that the individuals responding to Uber's and Lyft's requests for drivers to provide these services are not aware that Maryland law requires them to have a license," Carmody said in a statement.

Letter writer Mary Catalfamo claims that Planned Parenthood denies any pregnant women immediate, free access to the full spectrum of information and counseling ( "Supreme Court decisions won't limit women's rights," July 9). It's hard for me to believe she hasn't researched Planned Parenthood's many guidance programs. One can find a lot of information just by searching on the Internet under Planned Parenthood. They have trained teachers who can guide anyone through each phase of pregnancy and beyond the birth of their baby.

A bill that would block a U.S. subsidiary of the French national railway from bidding to become a partner in a $2.4 billion project because of its role in the Holocaust would put federal funding of the project at "significant risk," the attorney general's office has concluded. In an opinion letter sent Wednesday, General Assembly counsel Dan Friedman told lawmakers that enacting the measure would run afoul of the Federal Transit Administration's rules ensuring open competition among bidders for projects to which it contributes money.

Last week, Baltimore Circuit Judge Alfred Nance gave a powerful boost to the cause of justice when he ruled that unless criminal defendants in the city are provided with lawyers at the time their bail is set, they must be set free until trial, effective immediately. The state has dragged its feet long enough in finding a way to comply with the Court of Appeals' two decisions mandating counsel at court commissioner hearings, and as lawmakers take up the issue again in the current General Assembly session, the judiciary needs to make clear that it won't back down on this matter.

Delonte Mohamed was taken with Satrina McDuffie's intuitive nature. She was unable to resist his "mushy side," hidden to most by a rough exterior. Within a few months, they knew: It was love. A year later, the couple are expecting a baby boy, adding to McDuffie's brood of two toddlers. Money is tight, their families disapprove of the relationship, and they bicker a lot. Still, they hope to get married one day. They're just not sure how to get there. So every Tuesday, McDuffie, 22, and Mohamed, 21, attend a counseling program at Baltimore's Center for Urban Families tailored to couples like them: young, struggling and with a baby on the way. It's part of a nationwide marriage movement aimed at combating poverty.

When Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts addressed the Roland Park Civic League last May at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, he urged members of "a sophisticated community" to find ways of using their skills and expertise to help "save Baltimore as a whole. " "We are Baltimore," he said. Now, the public school and the Roland Park Civic League are taking Batts' advice to heart. They are collaborating on a new mentoring program to help middle school students from outside Roland Park adjust to a school in an unfamiliar area.

The emotional component of the crises that occur in the city all too often winds up in a North Avenue grief counseling room. This destination for some needed healing is little known in the world of Baltimore philanthropic circles. But that will be changing. I spent time this week at Roberta's House, a comfort zone located in the heart of the neighborhoods where these sadnesses often begin. I spoke with Annette March-Grier, who named her project after her late mother, Roberta March, who was known as a loving matriarch among Baltimore's African-American morticians.
