Jim Hart and Khalil Abusakran, the two men who rescued the deer from the icy waters of the Patapsco River, deserve awards, not fines ( "Rescuers fined after freeing deer from Patapsco ice," Dec. 18). That poor deer surely would have died if it were up to the Natural Resources officers, who clearly didn't want to get involved to save her. No one should stand around lollygagging when someone else — human or animal — is in danger and they can help. I have nothing but respect for the firefighter who recently rescued a dog who fell through a frozen pond up north.

Thank you for your story today about the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and their inaction and subsequent fines against the two men who rescued a deer in the Patapsco River ( "Rescuers fined after freeing deer from Patapsco ice," Dec. 18). The story made me wonder about the culture in this agency. I had one experience with them, aside from them chasing all the fish away to check fishing licenses in the bay. When my son was about 12, I gave him a new spinning rod for Christmas and bought one for myself (it was new technology at the time — a push button atop of a conventional-looking reel)

Over the years, we have often disagreed with Del. Donald H. Dwyer Jr. on numerous matters of law and social justice. But it gives us no satisfaction to learn of the Anne Arundel Republican's involvement in a horrific boating accident Wednesday on the Magothy River. The accident caused serious injury to six people, including Mr. Dwyer, another adult and four children. Mr. Dwyer had been drinking and operating one of the vessels, the "Baja," a 26-foot runabout that collided with an 18.5-foot Bayliner and sank near Cornfield Creek.

Boating season is just getting started, but Ocean City is already dead center on the radar of Maryland boating police. The area is among the "big three" to watch this year, said Sgt. Ken Turner, spokesman for the Maryland Natural Resources Police, which oversees state boating safety. It joins Garrett County's Deep Creek Lake and the area surrounding Anne Arundel County's Sandy Point State Park boat launch as the areas with the highest number of boat crashes. Last year, the boating police mimicked state trooper strategies to crack down on violations around the "big three," a strategy they plan to bring back in force after an overall reduction in boating accidents last year.
