Regarding Arthur Hirsch 's thorough article ("Plans for old distillery stir controversy in Dundalk," May 3), I would submit some additional relevant information. First, the rezoning of the property as requested by developer John Vontran and the meetings that were conducted on his behalf by the Dundalk Renaissance Corp. raise concerns. One of those meetings was a private one held at the DRC. That meeting was announced in an e-mail to selected members of the community sent by Scott Holupka, a board member of the DRC and a member of the Baltimore County Planning Board.

The recent coverage of police brutality in Baltimore has been unnerving ( "Civil wrongs," Oct. 5). However, the recent column by Dan Rodricks reflects exactly how disgusted I've been with every other area of city governance. Mr. Rodricks points out how the police commissioner and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake turn a blind eye to paying fines and never delving into the problem ( "Mayor should have seen troubling brutality trend," Oct. 5). But to raise taxes to cover the consequences while raising their salaries and enjoying all the "perks" of office is not fixing the problem.

I'm writing in response to Peter Hermann's article "Odd Crime Tales Rise Again In Dundalk" (May 30). Dundalk the home of the uneducated? This is what is wrong with our society. If you don't have an education, you're stupid. It takes just as much brain power to become an auto mechanic, a carpenter, electrician, a ship builder, etc., as it does to become a doctor or a lawyer. When did it begin that if you didn't become a college grad, you were stupid? Where are our trades?

Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

As school assemblies go, this one was a winner. Austin Machin listened to a Blue Angels pilot speak for an hour at the Dundalk and Sollers Point high schools Friday, walked out and said, "I am at a loss for words about how awesome that was. " The 16-year-old wants to join the Navy SEALs right out of high school, and for him, the pilot was about as good a recruitment tool as he could imagine. Students from Dundalk and Sollers Point had dozens of predictable questions for Blue Angels pilot Lt. Mark Tedrow, who is in town for the Star-Spangled Spectacular, a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore and the writing of what would become the national anthem.

If the War of 1812 is the forgotten war, then the landing of the British near Dundalk is perhaps a battle few ever knew even happened. But to thousands of visitors to Fort Howard this weekend, the Battle of North Point was vivid - they felt the echoes of gunfire in their chests as they watched reenactments of a confrontation between British forces and Baltimore militia. The Dundalk-Patapsco Neck Historical Society holds the event annually, though it grew this year in commemoration of the battle's bicentennial - just days before this week's Star-Spangled Spectacular.
