A Honduran man living in Baltimore County faces federal charges after an unaccompanied immigrant girl sent to live with him told police he smuggled her into the United States and that the pair engaged in a sexual relationship. Federal officials gave Pedro Lara Portillo, 42, guardianship over the girl, who is also from Honduras, as part of a program that places minors who cross the border alone with relatives while their immigration status is determined, according to court documents.

Jean-Pierre, a Maine coon cat, had a whirlwind of a December, but has, to say the least, landed on his feet. That's thanks to Robin McDonald, owner of the Howl natural pet food and supply store in Hampden, who's become something of a guardian angel to area pets in need. Left on the front porch of Howl in a carrier with a note, Jean-Pierre was found by an UPS driver who alerted McDonald about the involuntary visitor. McDonald took the feline inside, ferried him to a veterinarian for a once-over and flea treatment, and posted his photo on Facebook.

Tandon Doss was absent from the Ravens' 20-point loss to the San Diego Chargers, but the rookie wide receiver had a very good reason. Doss was in the Indianapolis area to attend Saturday's funeralĀ for Sherry L. Rawson-Koker, who died Dec. 11. An obituary in the Indianapolis Star described the 57-year-old Rawson-Koker as a photo archivist for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 2003. Doss said that Rawson-Koker was a guardian who took him into her home when he was an eighth grader in the Indianapolis area.

The revelation that the federal government has spied on millions of supposedly private phone and Internet communications makes President Barack Obama's headache over the IRS targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exemptions seem like a passing migraine. The leaks about the policy to the British newspaper the Guardian and to the Washington Post, provided in convincing detail, cast a president who claims to be a champion of individual privacy and a free press as just another hypocritical politician bending to intelligence-gathering mission creep.

ATHENS, Ga. -- As soon as it became apparent that Democrats had won majorities in both chambers of Congress, Harry Reid of Nevada, who will become the new Senate majority leader in January, declared: "I believe that the first order of business when we reorganize after the first of the year is congressional oversight." He acknowledged that "there simply has been no oversight in recent years." In fact, oversight has long been a neglected task of Congress. "The purpose of oversight is to keep bureaucrats from doing something stupid," former U.S. Sen. Wyche Fowler Jr., Democrat of Georgia, wryly observed after his many years in Congress.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - A judge agreed yesterday to appoint a special guardian for Terri Schiavo, the severely brain-damaged woman whose case has set off a legal firestorm in Florida. But it was unclear exactly how broad the guardian's powers will be, or how he or she might affect Michael Schiavo's ability to make medical decisions on behalf of his wife. Schiavo's feeding tube was reinserted yesterday, and she was returned to the Pinellas Park hospice where she has lived for more than three years, her father, Bob Schindler, said last night.

A Baltimore moving and storage company will pay the federal government $575,000 to settle claims that it collected union wage hikes for contract work at the National Security Agency done mainly by nonunion workers who never saw the extra money. The payment resolves a lawsuit federal prosecutors filed in September against Guardian Moving & Storage after U.S. Defense Department investigators uncovered the overbilling. Guardian did not admit any wrongdoing in the settlement reached Monday, and the South Baltimore hauler is not prohibited from seeking future government contracts.

The Guardian reported Sunday that Edward Snowden, who was working at an NSA office in Hawaii as an employee of the defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, wanted to alert the public to the programs being conducted in their name.

Naval Petty Officer Alonzo M. Gladden Jr. had been back home for only four hours last October when an unknown person opened fire on him - killing him shortly after he dropped off his grandmother in South Baltimore. Months later, his killing remains unsolved, and city police have turned to Baltimore's Guardian Angels for help with the case. On Sunday, standing amid broken liquor bottles at the corner of Hollins Ferry Road and Patapsco Avenue, the volunteers and Gladden's relatives passed out fliers and held up signs asking passing motorists for leads in the case.

"It was a horrific, horrific case. We need to look at everything that resulted in this tragedy, ..." said McCabe, who met with The Sun's editorial board yesterday.

The American kabuki dance known as the Congressional supercommittee has ended where it started, with no deal on cutting $1.2 trillion from the federal deficit. What it has mostly accomplished is to underscore why public approval of Congress as a whole is mired at a ludicrous 9 percent in the polls. At the outset, logic seemed to suggest that having only a dozen experienced cooks in the kitchen made more sense than having 535 pairs of hands in the pie. The fallacy was in believing or hoping that the distinguished dozen would manage to put aside the groupthink dominating each party and come to an agreement on a sensible compromise.
