A Baltimore County judge has ordered Essex Community College to reinstate two tenured professors, calling the handling of their firings by the college board of trustees "a travesty of justice."The college had no complaints about the abilities of the professors, Jane H. Adams and Gwen M. Nicholson, only an inadmissible, after-the-fact claim that the college had money problems, Circuit Judge John Grason Turnbull II said.The professors' attorney, Barry L. Steelman, called Wednesday's decision in the women's lawsuits against Essex "a most resounding victory, because it is rare to obtain an order from the courts instructing a college to reinstate employees."

Rossi is second on the team in points (22) and tied for first in assists (10), but said he found his stride in Tuesday's win. “I'm still getting comfortable,” he said.

I agree wholeheartedly with Linda Allman that there are some very worthwhile small theaters in Baltimore City ("The show goes on," July 6). My husband and I have attended some memorable productions through the years at Fells Point, The Vagaband, Spotlighters and Everyman Theatre , to name a few. Then one evening as we were driving through the city on our way home from a show, we were attacked by a group of teens at an intersection. Our car was damaged, but fortunately we were not. Still, I became uncomfortable going into the city and parking on the street at night.
