The Baltimore Museum of Art has rebutted arguments that attempt to cast doubt on its claim that a tiny landscape painted by Pierre-Auguste Renoir was stolen from the museum in 1951. The document filed Tuesday - known as a "reply" - is the most recent in a chain of filings concerning whether legal title to the 1879 landscape, "Paysage Bords de Seine" belongs to the museum or to a Virginia woman, Marcia "Martha" Fuqua, who said she bought the painting for $7 at a flea market without knowing its true value.

The Maryland Historical Society can thank document thief Barry H. Landau for some recent additions to its collection. Landau's capture at the Baltimore institution sparked a multistate investigation that ended in his conviction for stealing 10,000 "objects of cultural heritage" from museums and historical societies all along the East Coast. But two years after his guilty plea, federal investigators say they still can't find rightful homes for more than 10 percent of those pieces.

Thousands of immigrants living here without legal permission will start the new year demonstrating skills in parallel parking and two-point turns in hopes of becoming licensed drivers in Maryland. Maryland joins a handful of states on Jan. 1 that issue so-called "second-tier" licenses that allow immigrants who do not have full legal documentation to drive on Maryland roads, register cars and obtain insurance. The licenses will not suffice as federal identification. Nearly 13,000 immigrants have signed up to take driving tests in the coming weeks, according to state officials.

Although state officials have provided the public scant detail about the troubled launch of Maryland's version of Obamacare, emails and documents show that the project was beset behind the scenes for months by an array of technical issues, warring contractors and other problems. Since Maryland's online health exchange opened Oct. 1 for people to buy insurance under the Affordable Care Act - and immediately crashed - the two main companies in charge of the website have taken their fight to court, a corporate project manager was replaced and a high-powered consulting firm was quietly brought in to restore order.

James W. Rouse had a big idea that he announced on Oct. 30, 1963: a community in Howard County built on more than 14,000 acres, a swath nearly the size of Manhattan that amounted to about a tenth of the county's land. So after Rouse put out the word in a four-page news release, his key investor wanted to know: Why give it such a modest public introduction? Letters on file at the Columbia Archives show that soon after Rouse made public that his company owned the land and planned to create "the finest community … in the entire United States," he received a one-page letter from Bruce P. Hayden, a second vice president with the Connecticut General Life Insurance Co., Rouse's partner in Howard Research and Development Inc., the company that owned the land and had lent something between $18 million and $25 million to buy the property.
