Uber Technologies still has a lot to say about the Maryland Public Service Commission's plan to regulate it and other popular rideshare companies as taxi operators — and the regulating agency will hear the company out. Uber, which has said it will leave the state if the changes introduced last month go into effect, notified the commission Tuesday that it plans to appeal the proposal. On Wednesday, the day the changes would have taken effect, the commission granted the company's request to write a 60-page appeal before a decision is made.

Utility customers who oppose smart meters can defer installation of the new digital, wireless devices until state energy regulators make a final decision on whether ratepayers can opt out of the utility program, the Maryland Public Service Commission said Thursday. The interim decision comes two days after the Public Service Commission heard from dozens of customers who oppose smart meters because of concerns over safety, privacy and security. The state's three largest utilities — Baltimore Gas and Electric, Pepco and Delmarva — are in varying stages of replacing older meters with smart meters, which are intended to provide real-time data and help ratepayers monitor and control energy consumption.

Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta has waited more than four months to get back on the field. He certainly is fine with waiting a few more hours to make sure he's ready to go. Though Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was noncommittal Friday about the tight end's chances of playing Sunday, all indications are that Pitta will make his season debut against the Minnesota Vikings at M&T Bank Stadium. Before a final decision on his status is made, Harbaugh said Pitta's surgically repaired right hip and Sunday's inclement-weather forecast will be scrutinized.

MINNEAPOLIS - Despite warnings of a split by tradition-minded congregations around the globe, the American Episcopal Church took a major step yesterday toward confirming the first openly gay bishop in the worldwide Anglican Communion. By a healthy margin, the House of Deputies at the church's national convention ratified the election of the Rev. V. Gene Robinson as the bishop of New Hampshire. The matter now goes to the church's House of Bishops, which is expected to make a final decision on Robinson's confirmation today.

You never get into an argument with a Latin woman! In the final night of the battle rounds, the coaches watched the final performances, made their final steals, and completed their teams.  In just one hour, the competition heats up with the judges selecting only the best to move on to the knock out rounds. Team Shakira: Brandon Roush vs. Shawna P. "Piece of My Heart," Janis Joplin It was the battle between youth vs. experience as special needs counselor Brandon Roush faced vintage rock goddess Shawna P.

The former chief of staff for Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales told told the Senate Judiciary Committee last week that Gonzales was deeply involved in the firing of eight federal prosecutors last year, adding that the final decision on whom to dismiss was made by Gonzales and President Bush's former counsel. That description appeared to be at odds with earlier statements by Gonzales that his involvement in the firings was limited. ?I don?t think the attorney general?s statement that he was not involved in any discussions of U.S. attorney removals was accurate.

ALBANY, N.Y. - The final decision on a $460 million plan to dredge the Hudson River of toxic PCBs will be delayed by at least two weeks, making it impossible for state and federal officials to reach a conclusion on the river's cleanup by the end of September. Part of the reason is that the recent disastrous events forced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency out of its Manhattan offices and with officials there assisting in the World Trade Center cleanup, dredging has been put on the back burner.

President Obama was correct when he opined that every citizen should have health care coverage and pay for it through insurance premiums. But the very partisan law that was rammed through by the Democratic-controlled Congress without the support of the voters was in direct conflict with his campaign promise to unite the country. How much the public objected to the health care law that President Obama signed was made clear in the 2010 elections. I suspect this year's election will reinforce what the public said in 2010.

Baltimore's planning commission approved plans Thursday evening for a major development, including a Walmart store, on the site of Anderson Automotive in Remington. The decision followed hours of testimony from developers, city officials and community leaders for and against the project, which some believe would flood the neighborhood with traffic and reduce home values. The proposal now goes to the City Council for further hearings and a final decision. Rick Walker and Lawrence Cager of WV Urban Development, their attorney, Jon Laria of Ballard Spahr, planning officials and backers of the 25th Street Station project dominated the first two and a half hours of the meeting.
