It was a painful moment for a man of his calling."I was in shock," the Rev. A. Joseph Maskell declared. "I never had sex with a kid."That was in May, and Father Maskell, pastor of St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church in Elkridge, was describing his reaction to the first in a series of allegations that he had sexually abused students while he was a chaplain and counselor at Archbishop Keough High School more than two decades ago."It is absolutely untrue," he repeated over and over again in an interview with The Sun in his sparsely furnished rectory office.

I fully agree with commentator Ned Holstein's view that parenthood generally should be shared (" Joint custody should be the rule, not the exception," Oct. 8). As a father of two who fights for his children only because their mother wishes to control them, the courts all to often allow this to happen to great quality dads. Fathers are being cut out of our children's lives for the financial gain of others - mothers and their attorneys.

In a recent column, Dan Rodricks ("The absurd arguments against same-sex marriage," Feb. 2) failed to interact with the actual points I made in my testimony against redefining marriage in Maryland. I pointed out that "the law is a teacher" and predicted that "birth rates would fall" because "[w]e would teach that procreation is no longer a uniquely important public interest. " Mr. Rodricks responds that "gay and lesbian couples have found ways of having babies. " This says nothing about whether we would maintain a "replacement rate," or plunge into demographic crisis, like we see in Japan and many European countries.

The death of my father in February makes for a bittersweet Father's Day this year. It's strange when you no longer have to find a card and try to come up with a gift idea. But, like every day, it's an occasion to remember all the great times, all the love he offered unconditionally, the sacrifices made, the encouragement (every visit or phone call ended with his parting line, "Keep up the good work"), the contagious sense of humor. I wanted to acknowledge all of that on this Father's Day in some musical way. I got to thinking about fathers in music, and that quickly led me to one of the most moving passages in all of opera -- Wotan's Farewell from Wagner's "Die Walkure.

The retouching on the black-and-white photograph is a giveaway. The good looks of the suave young man peering out from one of Warsaw's Academy of Fine Arts student passbooks rival those of a movie star. The confident gaze, hint of a smile and darkroom-perfected complexion were all characteristic of portraiture in the 1930s and 1940s. Next to the headshot, a red ink stamp pinpoints the date first hinted at by the portrait's signature style: Oct. 31, 1939. That was the last time Jerzy Kajetanski used his bus pass in his native Poland, two months after the Sept.

Gregory A. Rapisarda has answered to the name "father" for decades, but that name will soon take on a much broader meaning. Rapisarda, a 62-year-old widower, father of four and grandfather of five, will be ordained today at the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in North Baltimore. The Rev. John C. Rapisarda, ordained in 2008, will perform the vesting honors for his own father, placing on him a cream-colored chasuble, the vestment worn at Mass. And then, for the first time in the 221-year history of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, a father and son will both serve as parish priests, according to church officials.

My father was a serious man, with a dry wit reserved mostly for those closest to him. He was a private person, and his death, because of the circumstances, was more public than anything he had ever done in his life. Sam Davis Jr. died on Dec. 9, 2009, in a fire at his home in West Baltimore. It was a tragic and abrupt end to the life of a South Carolina sharecropper's son who came to Baltimore during the late 1950s and survived the turbulent 1960s to raise three children, send them all to college, purchase a half-dozen cars and a home.

It would be refreshing if one of our esteemed Maryland criminal defense attorneys qualified to win or obtain a proper sentence would step in and replace the court-appointed public defender representing Robert Richardson III, the Bel Air 17-year-old who allegedly killed his father one year ago. While the average reader of this paper would not have reason to know it, this state contains far fewer than 20 attorneys whom a person with means would hire...

Cathy Teodosio, a 55-year-old special education teacher, has been biking in fundraising events for more than two decades, but next weekend's Ride to Conquer Cancer will be especially personal for her. In April 2013, her father, Joseph Teodosio, was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Soon after moving from Connecticut to Fells Point in October, she heard about the event - which benefits Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals. "It took several months with the move and his recovery for me to actually sign up for something like this, but I knew I had to do it," Cathy Teodosio said.

Archbishop Curley coach Barry Stitz had a long talk with his son, Ben, just prior to varsity tryouts this summer. Stitz had to explain that as the coach's son, Ben was inevitably going to be "under a microscope. " After coaching his son for Fewster F.C., a club team, the coach knew his son, a freshman, had the tactical ability to be a varsity player. The challenge would be the physical rigors of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, competing against players three or even four years older and carrying the same last name as the guy in charge.

This is Robin Williams Week in America; we are mourning the death by suicide of an extravagantly talented man who made us laugh and think. Here are some thoughts, starting with the words of an old friend whose father killed himself: "Suicide inflicts far more pain than it relieves. " My friend said this 20-plus years ago during a long overnight drive through Virginia, after the conversation had shifted to the guy topics of middle age: depression, alcoholism, women and children, and a mutual concern that we were in the process of becoming our fathers.

The Howard County trial for a 16-year-old accused of planning her father's murder has been postponed until February. Defense attorneys for Morgan Lane Arnold asked for the delay so the teen can undergo further psychiatric evaluation. Arnold is accused of conspiring with her boyfriend to kill her father, 58-year-old Dennis Lane, in May 2013. Wednesday, Circuit Judge Timothy McCrone granted the defense's request so Arnold can be evaluated to determine whether she is competent to stand trial, according to a spokesman for the state's attorney's office.

A Howard County judge sent Morgan Lane Arnold back to jail from a juvenile facility Monday, ruling that the 16-year-old should be tried as an adult on charges she plotted with her boyfriend to kill her father. Circuit Judge William Tucker told a full courtroom that Arnold, accused of helping plan the May 2013 killing of her father, well-known businessman and blogger Dennis Lane, needs intensive mental health treatment. There's no guarantee she would get it in the five years she might spend in the juvenile system if found guilty, Tucker said.

There were no real fights between the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers during a joint practice session Saturday at the Ravens' training complex. The closest they came to a skirmish was a brief shoving match between Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee and 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu. And that didn't seem to surprise the father of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. "The amazing thing is these teams that get together, they normally do the two or three days before the game, and then you play the game and get on the plane and go home," said Jack Harbaugh, a retired former football coach at Western Kentucky, Western Michigan and Michigan.
