Sarah Elizabeth Hancock, an effervescent and outgoing college junior whose lifelong ambition was to become a social worker so she could help others, was remembered Thursday by family and friends as a thoughtful and caring individual. "Sarah always put other people's problems in front of hers," said Steve J. Kotowski, 20, who is a materials engineering student at the University of Maryland, College Park. "She was the kind of person that if you had a problem, you could call at midnight and she'd talk to you as long as it took.

A couple of hours outside Baltimore, you're driving west toward the Pennsylvania Turnpike and are ready to take a break. You have two choices: Stop in Breezewood, Pa., the self-proclaimed "town of motels," the tacky capital of the world. Or, perhaps, take a break in Hancock, Md., for a ride on a canal boat, some antique-shop browsing, a stretch of the ole' legs on the riverside hiking trail.Wake up, you're dreaming.The Hancock alternative doesn't exist. Yet. A few restaurants in the sleepy Washington County town of 1,900 do beckon, but there's not enough there to lure most of the 30,000 vehicles on Interstate 70 from passing right on by, to Breezewood and beyond.

Ray Lewis will play through an injury, but Denver Mayor Michael Hancock isn't about to dance through one. After losing a bet to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake over the outcome of the Ravens-Broncos playoff game, Hancock was supposed to perform Lewis' signature pregame dance Tuesday. Instead, the mayor showed up with a limp. "He's injured," said Hancock's spokeswoman Amber Miller. "He was at a National Western Stock Show event last night, and he caught his boot. He seriously strained his quad.

Jay Hancock 's articles about Chesapeake Urology Associates are misleading and inaccurate ("Urologists got machine; cancer treatments soared," Jan. 15). My husband is a patient there, and receives excellent care. When he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he was given several options, including getting a second opinion outside of the practice. It was recommended that he explore the options and then decide what course of action he wanted to take. Radioactive seeds were not recommended because they would not reach and eradicate the entire cancer area.

From the Maryland Lottery: "An excited Pennsylvania couple arrived at Lottery Headquarters today, accompanied by legal counsel, to claim their $128.8 million Powerball prize. The elated twosome, who chose to remain anonymous, had the only winning ticket for the Christmas Eve drawing. The couple's Quick Pick Powerball numbers of 14, 16, 30, 51, 52 and Power Ball 19, matched all five white balls and the red Power Ball to win the second-largest jackpot ever hit in Maryland. " From a September Hancock column on people who won $109 million in Powerball, who also eventually chose to stay anonymous: "We've heard from a couple" who say they own the $109 million Powerball ticket sold in Abingdon last week, says Carole Everett, spokeswoman for the Maryland Lottery.

As the wire reports say, November's unemployment drop from 9.0 percent to 8.6 percent puts the jobless rate at its lowest point in more than two years. But there are still more than 13 million unemployed folks -- Americans who want to work, have looked for a job in recent weeks and haven't been hired. And that doesn't count the folks who have given up. If you want to work but you're not actively looking for a job, you're not counted as unemployed. Hundreds of thousands seem to have given up looking last month, which is what partly explains the drop in unemployment.

Last week the Brookings Institution updated its report on state job gaps — the discouraging difference between pre-recession employment and the number of jobs needed not only to attain pre-slump levels but to employ people who have entered the work force since the recession began in late 2007. Maryland did not fare well. While statewide employment is down 96,000 jobs from the peak, the job gap — what the economy needs to get back to normal — is 237,000 jobs, according to Brookings.

If I were the boss of Baltimore Gas & Electric I would be tempted to set up a secret plan to treat Very Important Neighborhoods differently than those of the plebes. Did the governor's lights go off? Put him at the top of the list for repair. No, wait. Put the members of the Public Service Commission first. They're the ones who will approve or reject the application by BGE parent Constellation Energy to merge with Exelon. They're the ones who are developing reliablity standards for BGE and other utilities.

I object in the strongest terms to the unfounded allegations in Jay Hancock 's column "Self-referral rules or not, business as usual for clinic" (May 17). The column is a one-sided, uninformed attack on the integrity of those who practice and work at Chesapeake Urology Associates. At Chesapeake Urology, treatment decisions are made by our patients and their families only after all available options are presented and discussed. We only do what is best for our patients. To suggest otherwise, as Mr. Hancock does, is insulting to us and to our profession.

Another decent but not fabulous jobs report. Economy added 244,000 jobs, which is the best result since May 2010. This makes more than 1 million jobs that the economy has added on net since September. And -- hurray! -- it's private-sector corporations that are doing the hiring. They're taking the cash hoards they've been sitting on and making them available to the human resources department. The seers had expected fewer than 200,000 jobs, based partly on a disappointing private-sector jobs survey that came out earlier this week and based partly on a spike in unemployment claims.
