Editor: I'm so tired of sitting for three or four lights just to get from Colgate Drive in Forest Hill to entrance to the Bel Air by-pass near McDonald's. There are signs that say right lane closed merge left, but no one adheres to it. They will wait to get all the way down to the light at the old C Mart and try and squeeze into the left lane, while those who adhere to getting into the left lane when directed have to sit for light after light. If you don't let them in, they will get right at your bumper so you have no choice; either let them in or you have a fender bender.

Members of the Blackburn family of Forest Hill didn't attend Sunday's Super Bowl in New Orleans, but they probably experienced the next best thing about the Baltimore Ravens' heart-stopping 34-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Scott and Kim Blackburn and their children, Brooke, 9, and Ethan, 5, were visiting Disney World in Orlando on Monday where they saw Ravens quarterback and Super Bowl MPV Joe Flacco make the traditional day after the game appearance at the Magic Kingdom. "It was cool," Scott Blackburn said by phone from Orlando, adding that the family vacation to Disney World this week ended up being perfectly scripted.
