Thank you, thank you, thank you for finally putting out a worthy and truthful account of the Ray Rice issue and its handling by the Ravens ( "The Ravens' story shifts," Sept. 23)! I am a domestic abuse survivor and I would really like to see that this situation could educate and really help victims, survivors and abusers. I was extremely hopeful when Ray Rice was handed a two-game suspension and when it was criticized by the public, many of whom do not even really know the whole story, know Ray Rice as the man and humanitarian he is or know anything about domestic violence.

For Robert J. Rose, a single father of three living in subsidized housing in Annapolis, buying a home was a remote possibility two years ago. At best it was a five-year goal.Then a guidance counselor at his children's elementary school told Rose about a homeownership counseling program run by Arundel Community Development Services Inc. (ACDS). Rose attended a seminar in September 1995, and after his first individual sessions with a counselor his outlook changed."Once I got in there and learned of the programs that exist and what I qualified for, my five-year goal became a six-month goal," said Rose, who was living in Bywater-Mutual Homes with his children at the time.

The National Football League - the folks who first brought you the pink player jerseys - looks ready to codify punishment for players accused of beating women. According to reports leaking out all over the place, the new policy would provide for suspensions of four to six games without pay for the first domestic abuse offense and possibly a season-long suspension for a second offense. The decision was clearly made as a result of the withering criticism NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell received for suspending Baltimore Raven Ray Rice for only two games after the running back was accused of assaulting his then fiancee, now his wife, in the elevator of an Atlantic City hotel.

I had that 'name,' " Busch said as she sat yesterday in the guidance office of Wilde Lake High -- where a fight between girls preceded the death of a teacher last week and focused attention on the problem of violence, particularly among girls, in Howard County and other suburban schools.

It is hard to say which happened first in the condominium neighborhoods off Pioneer Drive -- the plunge in property values or the emergence of drug trafficking and crime that now stigmatizes the community.But there is no question that owners who bought into the Severn community, built in the 1960s and 1970s for affordable homeownership, have watched the value of their investments decline over the past decade.Many have sold out to investors who paid deflated prices, then turned two-story, brick-front townhouses into rental units.
