Carroll County has agreed to pay a $40,000 penalty after a federally led inspection found the county had failed to properly protect its streams and waterways from polluted stormwater runoff. The Environmental Protection Agency announced earlier this week it had reached a settlement with the county, in which local officials agreed to pay the fine and correct federal water pollution violations found more than two years ago. The agency accused the county of failing to identify all the outfalls where stormwater runs into streams and rivers, not inspecting construction sites often enough, failing to check all county facilities for runoff controls and not providing a hotline for residents to report illegal discharges into storm drains.

Tim and Julie Rivenbark had a house, two kids and jobs they loved. But the Howard County couple also had a yearning for more experiences and fewer things.

It took a couple of years for the sensible, responsible Rivenbarks to throw caution to the wind and make the decision to leave behind the familiar and embark on an adventurous yearlong quest to see the world. Over the past several weeks, the couple sold their house and cars.

On Wednesday, the 40th season of Howard County Summer Theatre will commence, and the longtime director and his all-volunteer cast and crew will present the first of eight performances of "Les Miserables. " Sankey, who is also a math teacher at Mount Hebron High School, was one of the first in the country to obtain the licensing rights for a live performance of the full-length stage version of Victor Hugo's classic tale of redemption, which were granted to the summer theater troupe in February 2013.

Aisha N. Braveboy of Prince George's County. After a concession call from Cardin, Frosh addressed supporters at the quaint Women's Club of Chevy Chase.
