Recent news has really made me want to speak out about our government and how it prioritizes things. Finally, Congress has passed something of a budget, but how can they think that it will help the economy if they don't extend the unemployment benefits for so many people? There are so many homeless, hungry, sick and poor people in our country. What really disturbed me was when the president stated that he would like to see a gay or lesbian winner in the Olympics this year. How can he even say something like that when there are so many other needs in our country?

R. Alonzo "Lonz" Childress, a civil engineer whose career with the Baltimore County Department of Public Works spanned more than 40 years, died Saturday at Johns Hopkins Hospital of complications from an infection. The Taneytown resident was 72. "Lonz was one of the most pragmatic and even-keeled persons that you'd ever meet. He was good at getting to the bottom of problems," said Brian L. Childress, a nephew who is a civil engineer with D.S. Thaler & Associates. "He always maintained a steady course and never got worked up. He could solve engineering problems without ever getting out of sync," said Mr. Childress, who lives in Perry Hall.

Ermis Sfakiyanudis is chief executive of Annapolis-based eTelemetry Inc., which makes computer gear that helps companies monitor and thwart employees' Internet use while they're on the clock. He's also a huge soccer fan and the son of Greek immigrants who spent 90 minutes in the office last week streaming the Greece-Nigeria World Cup match on ESPN.com. The irony isn't lost on him. "Three games a day, 90 minutes each, minimum. … It becomes a real time-suck," Sfakiyanudis said.

The federal government will run out of money to deal with the influx of Central American children crossing the U.S. border illegally this summer if lawmakers fail to approve $3.7 billion in emergency funds, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told a Senate panel Thursday. Meanwhile, federal officials planned to assess a former Army Reserve site in Westminster as a possible shelter for some of the children, according to a document obtained by The Baltimore Sun. The Obama administration has considered - and rejected - three other sites in Maryland.

You open the cupboard under the sink and expose your awe-inspiring arsenal of commercial cleansers, bleaches, polishes, paints, strippers, solvents, removers, deodorizers, disinfectants, detergents, abrasives...

Ron Landy of Woodbine informed me about an incident where he had water flood over his basement door threshold, and he's worried that it will recur even though the builder made improvements to the drain. He wrote: "I recently moved into a new home with an areaway - a stairwell leading to a below-ground basement. The bottom of the well has a drain that leads directly to the sump pump. ... During a serious storm in early July, we had 5 inches [of water] in one hour, the drain was overwhelmed, and water seeped under the door to the stairwell and damaged the carpet in the finished basement.

IT WASN'T the dog fur, or the dryer lint, or the scraps from laundering the rag rugs that clogged up the main drain leading from Karol's house to the sewer connection at the street."

The way John Naumann Jr. sees it, Baltimore County officials caused $30,000 in damage to his home because they ignored a leaky storm drain for 10 years -- and he wants them to pay up.Naumann claims that the underground drain, which runs between the two houses he owns on Goldenwood Road in Rosedale, is responsible for erosion that led to an unstable foundation under one home, cracks running up the walls and across the driveways, sloping sidewalks and sinkholes.But...

A Sykesville man was found dead in a storm drain Wednesday, police said. Robert L. Hawk, 54, was found along the 500 block of Md. Route 140 before late Wednesday morning, police said. An area business owner was mowing the lawn when he spotted Hawk's body and called the police shortly before 11 a.m. Responders arrived and pronounced Hawk dead at the scene, police said. Police said Hawk had likely crawled four feet into a drainage pipe to lie down, and a folded shirt was found beside his body.

Lane closures on eastbound Route 50 in Annapolis that began Tuesday night for repairs to a partially-collapsed drain pipe beneath the roadway will continue Thursday, according to the State Highway Administration. Planned closures on Wednesday night have been delayed due to expected thunderstorms in the area. The collapse caused a sinkhole to form in the roadway in June, but was only addressed with a temporary fix at the time. The work ahead will include full closures of the eastbound highway near the exit for Aris T. Allen Boulevard, the SHA said.

Here's a no-brainer for you: Your memory doesn't have to get worse with age. In fact, you can actually grow the short-term memory portion of your brain -- and possibly even stave off the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Or so says Dr. Majid Fotuhi, a Harvard- and Johns Hopkins-trained neurologist who has operated a brain center in Lutherville for the past two and a half years, and who this winter opened an even larger brain center in Columbia, a 6,000-square-foot facility on Charter Drive, behind Howard County General Hospital.

The walk home from school is what I remember most. It should have been a lighthearted schoolboy stroll for a sixth grader on a cloudy and mild Friday in late November, filled with visions of the weekend ahead and the long Thanksgiving holiday just a few days away. Instead, it was a mournful plodding along a route I had walked daily, yet, on that afternoon, my surroundings seemed somehow alien. The remnants of crisp fallen leaves crackling under foot served as constant reminders that, with each step, my childhood was palpably draining out of me and being left behind to evaporate into memory.

The office of Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot recently released a report suggesting that Maryland students start school after Labor Day so that families can take one last summer-fling vacation, thereby giving the state a nearly $75 million economic boost. I haven't crunched any numbers on the topic but, as a parent with school-age children, I believe the report's glowing financial projections fail to take into account several factors that work against this predicted surge in tourism-related dollars.

I recently spent a long, intimate session with a "P" trap.A P trap is a piece of pipe that sits under the drains of most sinks. It looks like a sideways letter P, but it also looks like a backward J. So you can ask for it by either name at hardware stores, and either way you can be corrected.I had seen a P trap on television. It appeared as "the source of the clog" in commercials for drain cleaners. In these commercials, the drain cleaner liberated gunk from a curved piece of pipe, the P trap, and sent the clog fleeing down a connecting drainpipe.

Capers are tiny, unopened buds of a flowering bush that grows in Mediterranean regions. They give a piquant little bite to sauces or salads and are often used as garnish for fish or meat. To release their flavor in sauces, coarsely chop capers before using. Bottled capers packed in vinegar will keep for months in the refrigerator. Drain off the liquid before using. If you prefer a less salty taste, rinse and drain capers before using. Salt-packed capers stored in glass or ceramic containers will keep for several months at room temperature.

As the first heat wave hit the city mid-week, at least four schools ran out of drinking water, city school officials confirmed. The Sun received emails from around the city reporting that schools hadn't received deliveries from water companies--and for years, school water fountains have been off-limits due to contamination. City school officials confirmed that due to delivery back-ups, three schools contacted the district Thursday morning regarding their water supply: Mt. Royal Elementary/Middle, Arlington Elementary and Roland Park Elementary/Middle.
