In the wake of Russia's increasingly belligerent behavior in Ukraine, President Barack Obama delivered a ringing declaration of NATO's support for the Baltic countries Wednesday in the capital of Estonia, a former Soviet Republic and current NATO member that also has reason to fear Russian aggression. Mr. Obama vowed the U.S. and NATO would honor the alliance's pledge of collective defense and back it up with a beefed-up troop presence and air patrols. He also pointed to NATO's decision to create a rapid reaction force and pre-positioning of military equipment in the region as evidence of the alliance's resolve to defend its members.

Here's an indication of how People reported this "exclusive" news: After not quite three years as a special correspondent for NBC News - and with just a little while until she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expected to become parents - the former first daughter is now leaving that position, she tells PEOPLE in a statement, "to continue focusing on my work at the Clinton Foundation and as Marc and I look forward to welcoming our first child.

I just started working as a part-time bartender on weekends. My co-workers tell me that part-timers don't have to declare tips. But colleagues at my full-time job said I should always declare tips. Who's right? Your full-time pals are right. The Internal Revenue Service considers tips income, and you must declare them. "Part- or full-time, they do have to report their tips," an IRS spokesman said. If you receive at least $20 in tips a month, you should report them to your employer, who will withhold federal income taxes and taxes for Social Security and Medicare.

WASHINGTON -- Ross Perot took to his favorite forum yesterday, talk television, with a new twist to his on-again, off-again designs on the White House.The Texas businessman said he might want to run for president, but not because he actually wants to be president. Instead, he said, re-entering the race would make it easier to buy television time from the networks for commercials pushing his prescription for the ailing economy."Interestingly enough, I'm trapped," Mr. Perot said on NBC's "Today" program.

"We're transitioning to security and stabilization operations," said a senior Defense Department official. The president is likely to caution that even though combat has essentially ended, the threat of armed opposition remains, and he will not formally declare victory.

NEWBURY, England -- World War I began as most wars do with patriotic fervor and predictions of a quick end. It lasted four years. While the match igniting the "war to end all wars" was lit by the assassination of Austria's Archduke Ferdinand on June 28, 1914, formal declarations of war occurred 100 years ago on July 28 (Austria declares war on Serbia) and Aug. 1 (Germany declares war on Russia, and Russia on Germany). Aug. 1, 1914 will be commemorated Sunday at a charity event to benefit current British war veterans at Highclere Castle, the site of the PBS series "Downton Abbey.

A Baltimore jury failed to reach a verdict Tuesday in a high-profile murder case, leading a city judge to declare a mistrial in city prosecutors' first battle with what they say is a murderous group within the Black Guerrilla Family gang. A juror who declined to give her name said a majority on the panel had been leaning toward acquitting David Hunter, an alleged BGF member who was charged with murder in the broad-daylight killing of heroin dealer Henry Mills on Greenmount Avenue three years ago. At its heart, Hunter's case was a simple matter: The jury was asked to weigh the credibility of eyewitnesses to Mills' June 2011 death.

Within months of the first shots of what was to become America's Revolutionary War, Maryland mustered troops to join the Continental Army and help newly appointed general George Washington drive the British from Boston. But the willingness to support the armed struggle did not correspond with an inclination toward independence. As was the case generally throughout the colonies in 1775, Maryland's leaders remained steadfast in their hope for a redress of grievances with Great Britain and a peaceable reunion with the crown.

Commentator Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. missed a seminal fact in his recent column on public prayer ( "Freedom of, not from, religion," June 1). To wit: The Senate unanimously ratified the Treaty of Tripoli in 1797, whose Article XI read in part that "the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion. " That was more than 200 years ago, and it's another reason why that period in history was known as the Enlightenment.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake keeps saying that retaining wall that collapsed on 26 t h Street was tested a year ago and declared sound ( "City officials still unclear on responsibility for railroad landslide ," May 7). But just because they said it was sound doesn't mean that it was. Apparently the engineers were mistaken. Just because they are employed does not mean that they are good at their jobs. Apparently they are not good at their jobs. Therefore, instead of sticking behind engineers who were demonstrably wrong, maybe, a mayor in a leadership position should fire the mistaken engineers and hire better ones instead of denying reality to cover up the issue.
