When Stephen Huppaty, owner of OzCorp Fine Builders, moved to Baltimore from Australia in 1997, he was intrigued by an interesting appendage to the miles of brick row houses -- rooftop decks. In the following years, these playpens in the sky would continue popping up in neighborhoods like Fells Point, Federal Hill, Locust Point, Butchers Hill and Canton. To Huppaty, it made perfect sense. In the tight confines of these neighborhoods, owners wishing to put additions on their row homes could either go back (given sufficient room)

State police on Friday located the second teenager that escaped May 2 from the Charles H. Hickey School in Parkville. Frederick Catchings, 17, was arrested at 9:45 a.m. in an alley at West Lafayette Street and Division Street in West Baltimore, police said.

Another 17-year-old was apprehended the following day at the Royal Farms on Joppa Road at Old Harford Road, police said.

The escape of a convicted murderer from a Maryland prison serves as a way to highlight the severe waste of both time and money in the judicial branch of government. Why must we move a convict's body to a new place to attend a court hearing? This could be done very inexpensively via Skype or any other teleconference service that allows the accused to have his/her day in court without the enormous expense, time and risks of physically moving a prisoner from place to place. When you multiply this movement to and from court hundreds (or more)

Terrell Watson has never seemed to stay in one place for long - even when he was supposed to be locked behind bars. The convicted felon, believed to be 33, was reported missing from his cell at a medium-security Nashville, Tenn., prison at 5:50 a.m. Sunday. The same prisoner, known in Maryland as Terrence Kassis Washington, also escaped from Harford County sheriff's deputies last year. Known for his brazen escapes, Watson once sawed through a window in a Louisiana prison and persuaded a jail trusty to look away while he fled from an Arkansas facility, authorities said.

Detroit is the largest city ever to seek bankruptcy protection, so its bankruptcy is seen as a potential model for other American cities now teetering on the edge. But Detroit is really a model for how wealthier and whiter Americans escape the costs of public goods they'd otherwise share with poorer and darker Americans. Judge Steven W. Rhodes of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan is now weighing Detroit's plan to shed $7 billion of its debts and restore some $1.5 billion of city services by requiring various groups of creditors to make sacrifices.

Marching in an Independence Day Parade is not supposed to be a gut-wrenching experience, but for me last weekend in Philadelphia, it was. Don't get me wrong; I love playing my waist drum, in my waist-drum troupe. It's just that July 4th always triggers memories of the day I left behind my husband and child in China, to escape to America. I recall secretly wiping away my tears so that my mom wouldn't see the depth of my sadness. I told my 1-month-old daughter, who was fast asleep, "I promise you a bright future, but for now, mommy has to leave you here in China.

Seventeen months after he became a one-day sensation by bolting free down U.S. 1, thoroughbred Bullet Catcher is set for a gentle retirement. Now 5 years old, with 20 starts behind him, the gelding is munching hay on a Montgomery County farm, waiting to be adopted. “He's just been a thrilling horse,” says owner Gina Rosenthal. “And now I really want a special person to take him and give him that good life.” Though a solid racer, Bullet Catcher was never destined to achieve fame on the track because of creaky knees.
