Like most Americans, the Ehrlichs celebrated the return of a captured U.S. soldier from Afghanistan. What parent would not possess a degree of empathy for the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, held by the Taliban since June 30, 2009? A positive aspect of a returned U.S. soldier is the notion that the U.S. military, the greatest force for good on planet Earth, recognizes its obligation to rescue its own. It's what a civilized, just nation does in consideration of the risk assumed by its young soldiers.

Maryland developers are once again digging into plans to build near rail stations, a sign that the appetite for development projects focused on transit may be coming back. This week, developers will break ground on a new 700-car parking garage and commuter station in Savage, the first part of an 18.5-acre development anchored by a MARC rail station. In March, the state court of appeals cleared the lawsuit blocking development of State Center near a Metro and light rail stop. Construction began in April on a new headquarters for the Department of Housing and Community Development near the New Carrollton Metro.

When app developer Mindgrub Technologies outgrew its space for the umpteenth time, CEO Todd Marks did what any good tech entrepreneur would do - he turned to Google. An analysis of his employees' commutes using Google Maps and Google Earth led Marks to Locust Point, and the former Phillips Seafood headquarters. Mindgrub set up shop there three weeks ago and is set to get an official welcome from Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and a group of city small business leaders Wednesday. "We're really growing fast and we need to attract a lot of talent," Marks said, adding that many of the young professionals Mindgrub is seeking to recruit already live in the city and want to stay there.

For the seventh time in the past eight years, the defense ended a season by giving up an average of less than 10 goals. Some of the credit goes to volunteer assistant coach Ben DeLuca. The former Cornell head coach, who was dismissed from the Big Red in November, replaced former Maryland defenseman Joe Cinosky, who became the defensive coordinator at Mount St. Mary's, and joined the program in February to help defensive coordinator Ron Caputo.

Countless famous footsteps have crossed the White House's entrance hall, but on Tuesday, some of the country's top science and technology dignitaries had to dodge a hovercraft made of foam and a paper bowl whizzing across the shiny pink-and-white marble. It was built by a group of five students at Patterson High School, selected among 30 research ventures for the fourth annual White House science fair. They won a place at the event by merit of a competition they won last fall, putting them in a room with President Barack Obama and with leaders of NASA, the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health, who visited with the students and asked questions.
