BGE sincerely thanks each and every one of its 1.2 million residential and business customers for displaying patience and understanding through BGE's massive restoration efforts following the widespread and devastating effects of Hurricane Irene. Please know that we appreciate the intense frustration that results from being without electric service, as daily tasks become progressively more challenging without power into our homes and businesses. We also understand that many routines and lives were interrupted as families, neighbors and friends came to the aid of those who experienced outages.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has spent the majority of the first two games running fly patterns and operating as something of a glorified decoy. The former Maryland star has been targeted 10 times and has just four receptions for 60 yards and no touchdowns. He drew one defensive pass interference penalty against the Pittsburgh Steelers on cornerback Cortez Allen that led to an Owen Daniels touchdown. Smith said he's not concerned about his workload and expects to get his touches as the season goes on. "I'm playing my part, and I know the ball is going to come more than it has been," said Smith, who caught a career-high 65 passes for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Through the end of the year my wife has an excellent health insurance policy for low income families. But due to the way we replied to health questions when applying at healthcare.gov, her application was connected to Medicaid, which I know she does not qualify for in Pennsylvania. We have called the Gov Help hotline multiple times and even contacted a local "application assister," but to no avail. So the end result is that we are qualified by income for a generous premium subsidy but do not see the tax credit reflected in premium prices when browsing the health care plans.

While I believe that many of Baltimore County School Supt. Dallas Dance's intentions are noble, I take issue with the means he has employed to implement them ( "Stop beating up on county school superintendent Dallas Dance," Aug. 25). His actions not only have left many people frustrated and upset with the superintendent but caused a significant part of the community to mistrust him over his stonewalling, the lack of real dialogue and transparency at meetings and his repetitive meme of "looking forward to working with the community" that is never realized.

With second baseman Ryan Flaherty struggling at the plate, Orioles manager Buck Showalter has deflected the attention to highlight Flaherty's improved defense. But in Thursday night's 6-2 loss to the Royals, Flaherty placed the spotlight to himself. After a sixth-inning third-strike call that ended the frame with a runner on second in a 4-2 game, the normally cool-headed Flaherty slammed his helmet and bat to the ground in frustration. “He thought it was a strike, I didn't,” Flaherty said.

I agree with Howard Bluth's frustrations over the obscene inequalities of wages, unemployment remedies, the continuous-without-break money chase, the influence of money in politics, etc., but I differ with his remedy of not exercising his franchise, and especially the suggestion to vote for a third party candidate to express one's disgust with the status quo ("Voting is an exercise in futility," Oct. 18). Enough people did that in the race between Al Gore and George W. Bush, and that resulted in eight years of the Bush administration, a huge escalation of the national debt, a greater disparity between the rich and the poor, and a totally fabricated reason for a protracted war in Iraq!

Towson's 10-9 overtime setback to Marist on Friday night wasn't just the team's fourth mark in the loss column. It was a missed opportunity. After opening the season with three consecutive losses, the Tigers thought they had turned the corner with back-to-back victories over Mercer and Mount St. Mary's. But the lack of execution against the Red Foxes was puzzling to Towson coach Shawn Nadelen. “It's frustrating because I thought we had executed at a pretty high level against Mount St. Mary's offensively, and I was looking forward to having our guys do the same thing,” he said Monday morning.

CASPER TAYLOR had much to be happy about as the General Assembly closed shop last week after its 90-day run. Yet his comments were tinged with frustration and regret.He's been speaker of the House of Delegates for five sessions, and they have been productive ones. Especially under Gov. Parris N. Glendening, the legislature has played a crucial role in rewriting major administration bills.Loyal and far-sightedHad he wanted to, Mr. Taylor could have handed the governor stinging defeats. Instead, he has remained loyal.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush walked a fine line yesterday between joining national outrage over the acquittal of four police officers in the Los Angeles beating case and finding greater fault with the rioters who took out their frustration through lethal violence.It was a balancing act that reflects competing demands on the president from his conservative political base and leaders of the black community who say he is insensitive to police brutality."We tried to be equal . . . but eight people are dead," the White House spokesman, Marlin Fitzwater, said before the death toll had climbed higher.

Ray Lewis was calm but candid last night on his weekly radio show when asked about the Ravens' play-calling on offense during the second half of their 19-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. "It was as frustrating for you as it was for me," Lewis said in response to a caller complaining about coach Brian Billick's decision to have Kyle Boller throw the ball three straight times, starting with second-and-one at the Bills' 49 with less than two minutes to play. All three passes were incomplete.

Ravens backup cornerback Chykie Brown was briefly kicked out of practice Saturday morning by coach John Harbaugh after Brown booted the football in frustration following a play. Brown had a potential interception glance off his hands when he kicked the football down the field, angering Harbaugh since that would have drawn a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct if this had been a game. "Chykie, get off the field," Harbaugh said loudly. "Get off the field. " Brown immediately complied and ran inside to the Ravens' training complex before returning to practice a short time later in full uniform.

A year after Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake pledged to reinvigorate the city's civilian police review board, panel members say nothing much has changed. That's hardly surprising. The board still lacks the power to investigate citizens' complaints of police misconduct in a timely fashion, and its recommendations are routinely ignored by the department. A panel so toothless that even its own members publicly wonder whether their efforts are a complete waste of time obviously isn't accomplishing its mission as a mediator of police-community relations.

Let me present a hypothetical situation that gets to the heart of the Supreme Court's unfortunate decision on prayer at local government meetings. I'll make the setting Carroll County because that's where elected officials eagerly invoke Jesus Christ at meetings of the Board of County Commissioners. Let's say you own a piece of property in some increasingly suburbanized section of the county. You want it rezoned so you can build a convenience store and gas station. You have to convince the commissioners that the area has changed enough to warrant rezoning.

I am responding to your article "Baltimore County curriculum contract ended amid feuding" (April 27) by Liz Bowie . I am retiring after teaching elementary school in Baltimore County Public Schools for 28 years - 27 of which were fabulous, this past year a nightmare. In April, 2013 I wrote to Abby Beytin, the president of the Teachers Association of Baltimore County to say that the elementary teachers would have a tsunami of the worst order in the fall due to an apparent lack of a language arts curriculum.

The written questions from the audience of more than 100 people came fast and furious on cards read aloud by City Councilman Bill Henry, moderator of the 3rd annual Public Safety Summit at Morgan State University on Saturday. What can city police do about underage drinking, motorists not stopping for pedestrians at crosswalks, and juveniles who are arrested for breaking into homes and then end up back out on the street, doing it again? Why is Roland Park less crime-prone than Cherry Hill?

BOSTON -- Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy, who left Sunday night's game in the seventh inning with a strained right hamstring, said following the game that he doesn't know the severity of the injury. Hardy has already missed six games this season with lower back spasms, and while he has recovered from those issues, he said they might have had something to do with his hamstring injury. "Never had this before,” Hardy said. “When I came back from the back thing, I felt this hamstring was really tight.

LIKE A LOT of guys, I pride myself in having a tool for every occasion. So it came as a shock to me this week when I discovered I lacked your basic watermelon-removal implement. The watermelon, a 10- or 15-pound Crimson Sweet, was stuck in the shell of a white 5-gallon plastic bucket. How did the watermelon get in the bucket? The short answer is it grew into it, like a cucumber in a milk bottle. The longer answer is that the stuck melon was a casualty of my war with the voles. Voles, also called field mice, meadow mice, or those #@& cents%$#!

Pat Prada was fed up, mad enough to protest the only way he could - with his wallet. The lifelong Orioles fan opted against renewing his season-ticket plan in early February, convinced he should no longer patronize a club that wouldn't spend enough money to build a contender. Prada, 48, explained his decision with a sheepish grin Wednesday as he sat among fellow orange-and-black-clad faithful for a preseason rally at Dempsey's Brew Pub & Restaurant at Camden Yards. Just a few weeks after he spurned the Orioles, they spent $58 million for free agents Ubaldo Jimenez and Nelson Cruz, winning his heart right back.

Baltimore's state senators pressed police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts on Thursday to address city residents' fears in the aftermath of the spate of killings that started the year. Batts tried to assure them that he was "just as upset as you are" and that "we're going to respond. " During the meeting in Annapolis with the city's six senators, all Democrats, Batts said he has been reorganizing the Police Department since his arrival in 2012 and that, with the exception of homicides and auto thefts, crime is significantly lower overall in the city than it has been historically.
