Fifty years ago Sunday, mere days before the Christmas holiday, dozens of families from Elkton and north along the northeast corridor to Staten Island, N.Y., were changed in an instant. The mid-air explosion of Pan Am Flight 214 over Elkton became Maryland's largest loss-of-life disaster. The plane, a Boeing 707, returning from San Juan, Puerto Rico, made a stop in Baltimore to refuel before continuing to Philadelphia to drop off the last of its passengers. But, Pan Am Flight 214 never made it past Elkton.

Temperatures were forecast to rise into the mid-40s by Wednesday morning in the Baltimore area as the rain continues, but gusty winds and possible snowflakes could still blow in by the afternoon to again slow those traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday. Snow was piling up in Western Maryland and across Pennsylvania on Tuesday, with travel to the Northeast expected to be treacherous into Thanksgiving Day as the storm moves up the East Coast. Those traveling by air also faced problems, with some delays and cancellations nationwide Tuesday.

State officials announced a partnership with the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center on Monday that aims to attract and grow companies that can help support space missions or adapt NASA technology for other commercial purposes. A memorandum of understanding between the state and the Greenbelt installation will help the two share industry trends, technology licensing opportunities and work force demands, said Nona Cheeks, chief of Goddard's innovative technology partnerships office. As part of the partnership, Goddard plans to host a "Space Academy" program for businesses to connect with NASA and each other on projects, whether they are related to space or not, she said.

Airline passengers may no longer have to power off and stow their portable electronics when they fly, the Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday, opening the door for airlines to lift most restrictions on how and when customers can use phones, tablets and e-readers. The agency said it believes many passengers will be able to safely use devices from gate to gate by the end of the year, as long as they are in "airplane mode," with cellular connections disabled. Some bulky electronics must still be put away for takeoff and landing, the FAA said, and airlines will have to submit their safety plans to the agency for review.

Audrey Stone doesn't hesitate when asked how long current contract negotiations will last between Southwest Airlines and the flight attendants union she leads. "As long as it takes," Stone said on a recent morning in Baltimore — a city she has called home since 2004 despite regular commutes to Dallas, where Southwest is headquartered. Stone, 36, is one of about 1,200 Southwest flight attendants whose home hub is Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, where Southwest is the largest carrier.

The U.S. National World War II Memorial opened on the Mall in Washington in 2004 - too late for most of the war's veterans. At the time of the memorial's dedication, it was estimated that only a quarter of the 16 million Americans who served in the war were still alive. Today, 68 years after the war's end, the Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that more than 600 World War II veterans die each day. Which is why three Southwest Airlines chartered flights, bearing 200 veterans from New England and New York, arrived at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport early Saturday.

I am writing to express my utter dismay at the redistricting plan to move half of the Clemens Crossing feed out of Wilde Lake Middle School, despite plans for a building expansion the following year. Wilde Lake Middle School is fed by two Title I schools and one non-Title I school, yet the plan is to remove high-income students! Although moving low-income students to high-income schools is known to be enormously beneficial to those students, that is the last thing that the Howard County Public School System would ever consider doing.
