Eleven years ago, Navy Capt. Barbara "Bobbie" Scholley dived more than 230 feet into the ocean to help bring back the past: two sailors killed when their Civil War battleship sank in 1862. On Friday, the Annapolis woman joined the crew members' descendants and dignitaries to usher them into eternity. The two sailors, whose remains were recovered from the wreckage of the USS Monitor in 2002, were buried at Arlington on Friday, 151 years after the ship battled the Confederate ironclad Virginia in the critical Battle of Hampton Roads, which revolutionized naval warfare.

Early on an October morning, serial stickup man Evan Foreman and his partner got to work just minutes before the two check-cashing store employees in Baltimore's Old Goucher neighborhood. The two robbers waited by the door; then Foreman drew a gun and forced a woman to let them in as she opened up for the day. They wouldn't hurt her, Foreman told her, "as long as you don't do anything stupid. " With the store's safe opened and more than $21,000 in hand, the men fled in a black Pontiac Grand Am. The attack on Gold's Check Cashing was one in a string of commercial robberies by Foreman — a campaign of "urban terrorism" as a federal judge described it. Federal prosecutors say he started out robbing drug dealers but turned to easier prey after he severely beat one of his targets with a shotgun.
