Rita Custer, of Aberdeen, has always been self-reliant. A former assistant manager for a Rite Aid Pharmacy, she is currently living on unemployment due to prolonged illness. She is also raising two sons, age 11 and 16. Her oldest, Justin, has Down's syndrome and has been the victim of bullying in his own back yard. For many years, Custer's wish has been for a place where her sons could play in safety. Justin is a client of the Arc Northern Chesapeake region, and after his mother suffered two strokes, the organization stepped up to help.

Pickles Pub, located across the street from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, has long been synonymous with opening day.

But at 10 a.m. on April 5, hours before the Orioles host the Minnesota Twins for the first home series of the season, the Deck at Camden Yards - a new, outdoor beer garden at the Hampton Inn - will open next to Pickles. Deck partner Fritz Brogan says the latest addition to Washington Boulevard will open for Orioles home games, Ravens home games and special events such as the Grand Prix.

Recent news coverage of the U.S. Postal Service's proposal to end Saturday mail deliveries has focused mainly on the public's reaction to the change ("For mail carriers, Saturday routes roll on - for now," Feb. 10). What has scarcely been mentioned, however, is the elephant in the room: The main reason the Post Office is in trouble is not a decline in first-class mail but two laws passed by Congress. The first was the 1971 Postal Reorganization Act signed by Richard Nixon. This required that the Post Office be run as independent agency that makes a profit from its services.

Picture a house magnificently perched on a hill in Cockeysville with windows overlooking a garden oasis in the foreground and, beyond, a rippling one-acre lake. There is not another house as far as the eye can see from the top of a stone staircase leading off the home's large deck and winding along an alpine garden path to a swimming pool and gazebo. The path continues onto a stone bridge over a cascading stream with a 17-foot drop over waterfalls sliding toward a pond. Beyond the pebble path, a fanciful teahouse rises up from a grassy plain.
