While at the games, she noticed more and more girls playing the sport. But they often showed up to practice and games wearing "boys' stuff.

The recent health care editorial, "The canceled policies" (Oct. 31), like many other opinion pieces published by the Sun, minimizes the latest of presidential leadership problems to protect Barack Obama.

For folks in Glen Arm, it's as much about presence as it is about absence. That's what draws them to the serene town 10 miles northeast of the Baltimore Beltway loosely wrapped by Loch Raven Reservoir and Gunpowder Falls State Park. What's absent is your neighborhood burger palace, 7-Eleven and Target. What's present is almost Wordsworthian - lush farmland, rolling roads and gentle, winding streams. Locals make a habit of impromptu trips to the tiny post office just to "see what's happening."
