On Monday, the Chesapeake Executive Council signed the Chesapeake Watershed Agreement, a collaborative effort across multiple states to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay. But the celebration of the watershed agreement may be premature. Down the road in Congress there is an effort under way to strip the protections of the Clean Water Act from small headwater streams that feed the bay with cold, clean water. The federal government recently proposed a rule to clarify a politically charged Supreme Court ruling which undermined 30 years of protection of the Clean Water Act for small headwater streams.

As a previous small business owner, I agree with Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot and others who want to dismiss the idea of using a state loan (as well as Baltimore County taxpayers' money) to renovate The Greene Turtle in Towson ("Don't fear this Turtle," Aug. 21). What makes this business so special to acquire county and state money? I live in Harford County and see every season the fall of local establishments. That's the gamble you take when owning a business. The family owners should look on their side and think "what are we doing wrong?"

I was disturbed on multiple levels after reading Dan Rodricks ' recent article, "Two years after Maryland court ruling, pit bulls on attack" (April 26). Not only does Mr. Rodricks feed into anti-pit bull hysteria for the sake of sensationalizing a hot-button issue, but his piece can hardly be called journalism due to its questionable methodology. Mr. Rodricks' "research" for this piece is based upon a "game" that he calls "Pit Bull Google. " He writes, "Anyone with access to the Internet can do it. " Apparently, anyone with access to the Internet can also be a journalist!

There's much more than just Bibles at the Cokesbury Christian Bookstore in Maple Lawn. While customers can certainly pick up Christian study aids, cards, jewelry with inspirational sayings and plenty of commentaries and devotionals, the bookstore also carries an eclectic assortment of volumes on global and social issues. On its shelves one can find a copy of “The Indispensable Guide to End-of-Life Care” by Sharyl Peterson, get some help from “Revolutionary Parenting” by George Barna or energize playtime with “101 Great Games for Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers” by Jolene L. Roehlkepartain.

IN '83 I was on the lam, flagrantly flirting with the law in malls, movie theaters, public parks and restaurants.The closest I came to arrest was when a security guard suggested that I might want to take my modest state of undress into the ladies' room.Intimidated, I complied, despite the fact that there were more nudes on the walls of the museum I was visiting than in your average health club locker room.Yes, I breast-fed in public, often in Chinese restaurants, where I felt guilty not about my exposure, such as it was, but about the way I sometimes dripped oyster sauce on my baby's head while I moved food from my plate to my mouth.

The Maryland Senate unanimously approved a bill yesterday that would guarantee women the right to breast-feed their children in public. The bill, backed by the state's nine female senators, was prompted in part by an incident involving a Reisterstown woman who was asked not to breast-feed her child on a bench in a toy store. The measure will move to the House of Delegates. About half the states in the country have such laws. Approximately 60 percent of new mothers in Maryland breast-feed their babies, according to the state health department.

Lessons from the holiday season:Never feed a child a peanut butter sandwich just before showing her how to play solitaire on the computer.Never take the favorite stuffed animal into the rest stop, no matter how much the boy begs. You can add fifty or sixty miles to a journey by doing that.Never buy a gift toy that has a label boldly proclaiming "over 400 pieces" and a fine-print caution, "some assembly required."Always buy extra batteries, any size.Never feed the dogs chocolate.Don't ask who ate the last piece of Christmas cake and didn't even put the dish in the dishwasher: you'll never find out.Learn a wacky song -- "Percy the Puny Poinsettia" was my favorite last year.

Sayers Jones Dickinson, who worked in his family's feed and grain business for 42 years, died Thursday at the Gilchrist Hospice Center in Towson of double pneumonia. He was 88. With his brother and an uncle, Mr. Dickinson started the Virginia-Maryland Dairy Feeders in Baltimore in 1934 and served as vice president until retiring in 1975. The business, which shipped animal feed worldwide, was later renamed Sherwood Feed Mills. Mr. Dickinson, who was known by his middle name, was born and raised on a farm near Fredericksburg, Va. His father was a state legislator and general store owner.

Warning: Public health officials have determined that not breast-feeding may be hazardous to your baby's health. There is no such label affixed to cans of infant formula or tucked into advertisements, but that is the unambiguous message of a government public health campaign encouraging new mothers to breast-feed for six months to protect their babies from colds, flu, ear infections, diarrhea and obesity. In April, the World Health Organization, setting new international benchmarks for children's growth, for the first time referred to breastfeeding as the biological norm.

Environmental activists warn that construction of a 21-mile natural gas pipeline through northern Baltimore and Harford counties could affect the region's drinking-water system, as the $180 million project cuts across more than three dozen streams feeding into Loch Raven Reservoir. Theaux Le Gardeur, executive director of the Gunpowder Riverkeeper, has petitioned the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to reconsider its approval of the pipeline last month and order a more detailed review of the project's environmental effects.

Oh, how best to describe BuzzFeed? You could start with a recent day on the site's main page, which featured this mix of stories: "14 creepiest things kids have said about their imaginary friends"; "27 reasons 'Hook' is actually the perfect holiday movie"; and If Buzz from 'Home Alone' had Instagram. " But you'd also find serious-minded pieces on Benghazi and protests in the Ukraine. Jack Shepherd, BuzzFeed's 34-year-old editorial director, said this ever-present mix on the site reveals much about the way people experience and process media in 2013.

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, we urge readers not to forget that this year there are still hundreds of thousands of Marylanders who won't be able to count on a dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and cranberry sauce to celebrate the occasion. Far too many Marylanders don't have enough to eat, not just today but during the rest of the year as well. As we gather around the table with family and friends to give thanks for the blessing of good food and drink, it's fitting we also remember those forced to live with hunger.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts' long-awaited consultant's report on how to reshape his department and drive down crime comes to what sounds like an obvious conclusion: The city's police should focus on gangs, guns and violent repeat offenders. The 200-page document underscores the extent to which that is easier said than done - it includes dozens of recommendations for changing the department's structure, procedures and use of technology. But at its heart, it tells us what we already knew - that gun crimes are the city's most pressing concern and that focused efforts by the police can help drive them down.

Five Baltimore County farmers are experimenting to see if they can make a better cow.Twelve cows have been trucked to Richard Price's 350-acre farm in Stockton to see if fattening them up with a special diet will produce the grade of high-quality beef that fetches top dollar and ends up in restaurants in New York and dinner tables in Japan.In the face of warnings from health experts about the ill effects of eating too much red meat, the U.S. cattle industry has been in a slump in recent years, Mr. Price said.

At Bea Gaddy's Patterson Park Emergency Food Center, there's no doubting what holiday is coming.Raw turkeys line the tables, defrosting in pots of cold water. Pans of cooked, sliced turkey cover every inch of counter space. In the freezers are more full pans, along with thousands of individual portions of cranberry sauce. Most of the floor space is covered with grocery bags stuffed with instant mashed potato flakes and stuffing mix. Upstairs are two rooms with cases and cases of canned vegetables piled up.Bea Gaddy is expecting 17,000 guests for dinner tomorrow, but she's as cool as a cucumber.

Eighty pounds of chicken. Fifty pounds of beef. One hundred pounds of pasta. Those are a few of the ingredients layered into large rectangle tins Sunday afternoon during a marathon casserole-building frenzy. Dubbed Holy Casseroley, the event drew dozens of members of Har Sinai Congregation in Owings Mills and their friends who wanted to help a group of people most will never meet. The volunteers assembled 1,250 casseroles, enough to feed visitors to the soup kitchen at Paul's Place in Washington Village/Pigtown for a week.

Saturday was busy for the members of the Germantown Elementary School PTA. Parents and teachers spent the morning and afternoon shoe-horning cars into every square inch of space around the Annapolis school, handling the overflow parking from nearby Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Saturday was Homecoming, and the football game drew a sell-out crowd, including lots of fans of Navy's opponent, the University of Pittsburgh. At $20 a car - $45 for a bus or a camper - it was a big payday, too. The PTA parks an average of 575 cars for every home game, but for Homecoming, as well as the Air Force game earlier this season, the number jumps to more than 850. They used to park more than 1,200 cars on Navy football Saturdays, said former PTA treasurer Kevin Chase.
