Although Richard "Moco" Yardley was a contemporary of Edmund Duffy, they might as well have lived on different planets, with Yardley inhabiting the more daft and distant of the two. Born in Baltimore in 1903, he became a hometown institution with his whimsical cartoons.He joined this newspaper in 1923 as an artist-retoucher for The Evening Sun and before the end of the decade had established himself as a backpage local cartoonist. His hilarious insights had Marylanders laughing as frequently as Duffy's angry cartoons moved them to outrage.

Anthony Swiderski said he was sitting in his Canton rowhouse Aug. 10, 2007, watching television, when he heard a bang outside, followed by screeching tires. His car had been hit, a hole punctured in the side, and a good Samaritan had taken down the tag number of the vehicle that sped away. The first responding police officer ran the number and looked up at Swiderski with a half-smile. "I work with her. She's a cop," Swiderski, 56, recalls the officer saying. What happened during the next 17 months might be frustrating for anyone who's been on the receiving end of a hit-and-run.

Shorter sentence denied driver in crash that killed 4 A Delaware woman who in 2002 caused a car crash that killed four members of a northern Baltimore County family should remain in prison, the Delaware Board of Pardons has decided. Tishara A. Duffy had asked that the remainder of her nine-year prison term be commuted in the deaths of Wayne and Emily Abbott of Freeland and their sons, Douglas, 9, and Brian, 5. Duffy, who pleaded guilty in 2003 to first-degree assault and four counts of criminally negligent homicide, expressed remorse during a hearing Thursday for her role in the high-speed accident on Route 1 north of Dover, but the board voted not to recommend to Gov. Ruth Ann Minner that Duffy be set free.

Amid tearful and treasured memories, the singular sounds of the Glenn Miller band are once again reverberating through the ivied cloisters of Yale.It's been exactly half a century since the trombonist leader of one of the most popular civilian dance bands of his time left Yale's home in New Haven, Conn., with his military band to entertain troops overseas. In December, it will be half a century since Miller's death in an air crash over the English Channel at age 40.But for a brief, heart-stopping moment, he seems to be back, wire-rimmed spectacles and all. And not just Miller, who was an Army Air Corps major at the time of his death, but his entire band as well -- wearing the same uniforms the band wore in 1944, performing beneath the same 48-star flag Miller used during his concerts at Yale, playing the same music and even re-enacting the same radio playlets aimed at boosting enlistment.
