Thanks for your two excellent commentaries by Stephanie A. Flores-Koulish and Lionel Foster ("Lost lesson of the Indian schools," and "What we (don't) talk about when we (don't) talk about race," Oct. 5). Ms. Flores-Koulish's piece about American "Indian schools" reminds me of the effort of our European-immigrant forebears to obliterate an entire ancient civilization and culture in order to take over its land. The empire builders from the so-called "Christian" nations of Europe who invaded this continent after Columbus practiced a systematic genocide and slavery that is well documented, including in records maintained by church officials.

It's not easy to find positive things to say about the University of Maryland football team, which is 0-4 and off to the school's worst start in more than two decades.Two good things, however, are the play of a pair of Baltimore area products -- Jaime Flores and Larry Washington. Both have been honored for their hard hitting in the 49-13 loss at Penn State last week. As football people know, if you'll hit hard against Penn State, you'll hit hard against anybody.Flores, a junior outside linebacker from Poly who lives in Fells Point, won the Hammer Award for the hardest hit by a Maryland defensive player against the Nittany Lions.

A Pasadena teenager pleaded guilty Thursday to two murders after prosecutors and defense lawyers belatedly learned that he admitted several months ago to a deputy sheriff that he had shot one of the victims. The plea by Vincent Ethan Bunner, now 18, ended his trial on first-degree murder and related counts in the Nov. 12, 2010 fatal shooting of Misael Flores during a botched robbery. Prosecutors said Bunner's disclosure to an Anne Arundel County deputy sheriff came as he was being transported within the courthouse for a pretrial hearing.

Offense -- "He is going to hit. He's got power and bat speed. He's got a great, big league body. Athletic, big and strong." Defense -- "He has good hands and feet and a cannon arm. He still has to learn how to catch. Technically, he needs some work. But he's a [Rule 5] guy that went from A ball to catching in the big leagues. His defense will improve with more experience." Overall -- "He is going to be very, very good, an All-Star eventually. He's not going to be a .300 hitter, but he'll hit .275 with 20-plus home runs.

Top-ranked South River had problems with Quince Orchard goalkeeper Cathy Flores all game long. The senior keeper almost single-handedly kept the Cougars in contention during a first half that belonged to the Seahawks, and when the teams went to a shootout, she came up big again. Flores made two key saves during the penalty kicks, one on the final shot from South River goalie Jacque Sutphin that gave visiting Quince Orchard a surprising 3-2 shootout win after the teams had battled to a 1-1 tie in their Class 4A girls soccer state semifinal last night.

Frederick chemist Alan Bruce Chmurny died yesterday, less than 24 hours after he swallowed a cyanide pill in open court after hearing a jury convict him of trying to poison a former co-worker with mercury. Chmurny, who had been in the intensive care unit at Howard County General Hospital, was pronounced dead at 1:55 p.m., said hospital spokeswoman Mary Patton, who confirmed that Chmurny suffered cyanide poisoning. Chmurny's decision to swallow the pill Wednesday unnerved Howard Circuit Court officials and stunned his lawyer, Dino Flores.

LANDOVER - Edith Flores tried to look joyful yesterday as she graduated from Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring. She smiled wanly as she shook hands with her principal, as she turned her tassel and as she walked out into the parking lot amid her fellow graduates who whooped and posed for pictures. But when her mother gave her some red roses and a hug, Flores burst into tears. "I keep telling myself to be happy because I worked so hard. But I just can't. I'm not going to a university," she said, wiping her eyes with her gleaming white graduation gown after the ceremony, held at a megachurch in Landover to accommodate the large crowd.

Friends recall Flores McGarrell as an unforgettable artistic force. A performer at numerous Artscape events, he helped create a live memorial drama after the 1995 burning of the Clipper Mill in Woodberry. His teachers said he was one of the most recognized students at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he studied and taught for nearly a decade. The former Baltimorean, who was leading a Haitian arts center, died Tuesday when he dashed into a collapsing hotel during the earthquake to retrieve a computer that stored his records and artistic concepts.

Almost 200 displaced workers from Baltimore's now-shuttered General Motors factory were offered jobs this week at the automaker's plants in Wilmington, Del., and White Marsh - a move that will considerably shrink the company job bank set up two years ago to pay laid-off personnel. A company spokesman said yesterday that 170 workers would be transferred to the Wilmington assembly line where three models are made. Another 21 workers with the most seniority would move to GM's Allison Transmission plant in Baltimore County.

Washington -- Four years ago, Hilda Flores and her three small children ran across the Mexican border in Arizona at night, then boarded a plane headed to Baltimore. Flores doesn't remember much about her first ride in an airplane, just that the children cried and asked what their father - who had left to work in the U.S. seven years earlier - looked like. Yesterday, with her only child born in this country, 2-year-old Jorge, in her arms, Flores went on another journey. Along with almost 200 parishioners from Baltimore's Our Lady of Pompeii Roman Catholic Church, she traveled to the National Mall to join tens of thousands of people, most of them Latinos, to protest a bill that would make it a felony to enter the country illegally.
