Nancy Hawkins from Oliver Springs, Tenn., was looking for the recipe for a cake that a woman she worked with brought into her office for a birthday celebration. It was chocolate cake that was just dumped out of the pan and had "oodles and oodles of scrumptious melted chocolate inside." Hawkins said the woman who made the cake called it an "Aussie dump cake," but she would never share her recipe. While I did not receive any responses from readers about this cake, I knew that a "dump cake" was not that uncommon.

Play like a Raven. Act like a Raven, not like Le'Ron McClain. If Mr. McClain spit on a Dolphins player this past weekend, then I'd say he bought his ticket out of town. A few weeks ago, he had a very costly personal foul levied against him at a very critical juncture in the game. In the preseason, he launched a "give the ball to Le'Ron" Twitter campaign, which could have potentially been quite divisive among his teammates. If it's truly about developing character as well as developing football players, then this one is an absolute no-brainer.

Southbound traffic on Interstate 95 was delayed for about four hours Wednesday afternoon and evening after a tractor trailer overturned across the roadway just north of the Fort McHenry Tunnel. Officials with the Maryland Transportation Authority said the truck was carrying heavy stone slabs that were thrown all across the highway during the accident. "It's not as easy as just getting a sweeper out there, because they are very, very heavy pieces," said Cheryl Sparks, a MdTA spokeswoman.

As a senior citizen, I'm offended The Sun bases political endorsements on age and social media skills ("For Bill Ferguson," Sept. 9). In light of today's average life-expectancy, Sen. George Della's 67 years is no reason to put him out to pasture. He has served the community well and will continue to do so. Several years ago I had an issue involving the Maryland National Guard and was impressed by Senator Della's concern and input. Bill Ferguson is a terrific guy, no doubt, but just because he's 27 and Twitter savvy doesn't mean he's ready for the Maryland State Senate.

Update : Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake denied Wednesday morning that the dump was paved expressly for the press conference and said the spending board's agenda incorrectly described the situation. "This work was not done in preparation for a ribbon cutting. Period," Rawlings-Blake said at a morning press conference. "It was unfortunately written that way. " Col. Alfred Foxx, head of the public works department, also denied that the work was expedited for the press event, and said that the renovation of the dump was driven by the launch of a new hazardous waste recycling program.

Common Core is the "New Coke" of education reform. The propaganda tells us that it is "more rigorous" and "deeper," but parents are getting a taste of it now and it is not as good as what we had in Howard County. There is no independent research or empirical evidence to back up the claims that Common Core is a better way to teach. Common Core has been found by many child clinical psychologists to be developmental inappropriate for children in the elementary grades. It asks children to think in ways that their developing brains are not yet capable of doing.

For several years now, Christmas tree farmer James Jett has made a nice profit by allowing parts of his 220-acre farm, at Dogwood and Wrights Mill roads, to be used as a dump. Up to 100 tractor-trailers a day ferried tree stumps and construction debris to the site near Patapsco State Park, infuriating neighbors alarmed by the heavy traffic. But until a fire was detected at the dump early last Saturday, the problem was strictly a local one.By early Monday morning, dense smoke from Mr. Jett's farm reached downtown neighborhoods -- some 15 miles away -- setting off smoke detectors and puzzling sleepy residents.

Given Harford County's tortured history with landfills, both illegal and authorized, it is hard to believe that officials have quietly allowed operation of an unlicensed dump they have known about for four years. Granted, the county made a feeble legal stab at challenging the dumping on the Abingdon cattle farm of Michael J. Kozub last fall. But it quickly backed off rather than standing up for its citizens and the environment.Only last month did County Executive Eileen Rehrmann ask the state Department of Environment, which licenses landfills, for 'enforcement assistance,' this following months of unheeded complaints by Harford residents already annoyed with the sloppy management on the nearby, now-closed Spencer landfill.

Her effervescent, adventurous spirit was the balm I needed for my annual unwanted visitor: Seasonal Affective Disorder. Liz helps you see in the dark. Liz, 25, a Reservoir High grad, took the plunge a while back and moved to Hollywood to pursue her dream of being in show business. During our talk, she was blunt about her travails.

* UPDATE on Deacon, the dumped puppy A 6-month-old puppy wound up at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) yesterday after she was dumped in a city alley, and now the shelter and animal control officers want to know who left her there. Named Deacon, the puppy was found by a good Samaritan in an alley behind Deacon Hill Court in the Brooklyn neighborhood. The person who found her said the pup was friendly and tried to get up, but was too weak to move on her own and must have been left there earlier that day. She had signs of malnutrition, an extreme case of mange that's caused lesions all over her body, and sepsis.

More information has been released about the severely injured puppy found in a Baltimore alley Wednesday: It now appears she had been set on fire. Officials at the Noah's Arks Rescue in South Carolina, where the 6-month-old pup was transported, say Petunia (formerly called Deacon) has an extreme case of demodex, or mites. And she has wounds consistent with being severely burned. She is in critical care and will remain in that condition for some time, but is being heavily medicated so her wounds don't hurt.  She was originally taken to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)

Living near Baltimore County's Eastern Sanitary Landfill is no doubt unpleasant. The facility is huge - 375 acres - and handles about a quarter of Baltimore County's solid waste, or almost 75,000 tons of trash a year. Residents of the neighborhoods adjacent to it complain of unpredictable odors that substantially diminish their enjoyment of their property. But a proposal pending in the General Assembly to allow for property tax breaks for the affected communities is the wrong approach.

A bill supported by Mayor Stephanie-Rawlings Blake that would increase the penalties for illegal dumping passed the House Thursday and moved to the Senate. The House voted 125-8 to increase the maximum jail term for dumping loads of 100 to 500 pounds to three years when it is not done for commercial gain. The current maximum penalty is one year and a $12,500 fine. The maximum for amounts over 500 pounds or any dumping for commercial gain is five years and a $30,000 fine. The measure also would also allow the Motor Vehicle Administration to impose two to five points - depending on the size of the load - against the license of a driver who uses a motor vehicle to carry out illegal dumping.

State officials have reached an agreement with an Anne Arundel County family to clean up Maryland's largest known tire dump, a decades-old stockpile of hundreds of thousands of tires rotting in ravines in Crownsville and threatening a waterway leading to the South River. The $2.5 million cleanup will be the latest in a two-decades-old effort by the Maryland Department of the Environment that has resulted in the removal of 10.6 million tires from more than 900 sites around the state.
