Karen L. Stabley, who served in various high-level management positions during her nearly two-decade career at The Baltimore Sun, died of cancer Feb. 8 at her home in the city's Otterbein neighborhood. She was 56. Karen L. Terry was born and raised in Williamsport, Pa. After she graduated in 1972 from Williamsport High School, she earned a bachelor's degree in 1980 in English from Barry University in Miami, where she had been editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper. Ms. Stabley, who put herself through college, worked from 1979 to 1981 as a local news editor and writer for Viewtron, an experimental video-text project in Miami that was established by Knight-Ridder Inc. In 1981, she left Viewtron and launched Gateway, a similar video-text project, for the Times Mirror Co.; the project was terminated in 1986.

The Baltimore County Police Department plans to renovate its indoor shooting range in Lutherville after being cited for exposing employees to high concentrations of lead. Maryland Occupational Safety and Health issued the citations in May after finding that the ventilation system operated poorly and other protections against lead exposure, such as regular disposal of combustible waste, were not in place. Police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said the department is evaluating plans to improve ventilation.

No. 7 Maryland's 10-7 win against No. 10 Duke on Saturday helped the Terps improve to only their second 3-0 start in the last six years. But an area of concern has been the team's poor showings in the second halves of back-to-back contests. Maryland owned a 16-5 advantage over Georgetown Feb. 24 before the Hoyas scored six goals in the last five minutes of the fourth quarter to make things slightly uncomfortable. And the Blue Devils scored three of four goals in the fourth quarter Saturday.

From a home base in Houston, federal authorities say, a Remington native has been directing a cross-country drug operation that shipped large quantities of heroin to Baltimore, New York, New Orleans and elsewhere. Fred Douglas Brooks III, 46, had already served two federal prison terms for drug trafficking when he allegedly launched a new venture despite having betrayed a crew of Mexican suppliers by testifying against them in 2005. The latest business - a "high-level, interstate narcotics-trafficking and money-laundering operation," according to federal prosecutors in Louisiana - flourished until his arrest June 30 in Houston, authorities say. At least 16 people, including Brooks, have been charged in connection with the case; seven are charged in U.S. District Court in Maryland.

While the offense hasn't been quite as productive as it had been in previous years, Stevenson, which is ranked fifth in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, is thriving on defense. That unit has surrendered just 15 goals in three games, which is just a few more than the 12 goals that last season's squad allowed. The defense is anchored by senior goalkeeper Ian Bolland (5.00 goals-against average and .634 save percentage), but a revamped starting close defense of juniors Kyle Fendlay (11 groundballs and five caused turnovers)

Ohio State's Evan Turner scored 23 of his career-high 32 points in the second half, and the visiting Buckeyes rallied from a 13-point deficit Tuesday night to beat No. 6 Purdue 70-66. Turner scored 14 of Ohio State's final 18 points. He also had nine rebounds in his third game since missing a month with a back fracture. Ohio State coach Thad Matta said he's not sure Turner is 100 percent healthy. "Honestly, I hope about 50," Matta joked. "I think he's getting it back.

Here is the third installment of a series that checks in with the eight Division III programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Thursday's visit was with Hood. Friday's visit is with McDaniel. REVIEW The good: The 2014 campaign was not as kind to the Green Terror (6-9 overall and 3-5 in the Centennial Conference) as coach Matt Hatton might have hoped, and a contributing factor was an offense that scored just 9.3 goals per game.

The would-be developers of a residential neighborhood in Frederick are suing the federal government over alleged groundwater contamination from neighboring Fort Detrick. Waverley View Investors LLC, which owns 92 acres near the long-standing center for biological research, says "the U.S. Army's negligence in its chemical handling and disposal practices" dating back decades has led to levels of trichloroethylene of up to 42 times the federal maximum contaminant level. The corporation, based in McLean, Va., says the contamination has prevented it from realizing plans to develop the land for 732 homes.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 13, 2014
The effectiveness of the volunteer firefighters who responded earlier this week to the scene of a car fire at a commercial garage in Joppa is exemplary of why it is important for Harford County to try to figure out a way to resolve the funding issues related to providing ambulance service. It was bad enough that the fire was the result of an automotive gasoline tank that was, according to fire investigators, set ablaze by someone drilling into or near the tank. Putting out a gasoline fire is no easy task and, not only is gasoline flammable like kerosene and plenty of other petroleum products, but it is also potentially explosive.

A bill to protect transgender Marylanders from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations was filed Tuesday in Annapolis by Sen. Richard Madaleno. The bill's language is similar to that of past bills that also sought to establish a statewide ban on discrimination based on gender identity or expression, but which have all failed in recent years. Madaleno, a Democrat from Montgomery County, formally filed the bill with the Senate clerk on Tuesday, though it likely won't be considered until later this week.

Given the rocky U.S.-Russia relationship that continues to sour despite President Barack Obama's earnest efforts to, as former secretary of state Hillary Clinton once put it, hit the "reset button" in dealings with the Kremlin, today's announcement that a planned summit meeting between Mr. Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin has been postponed indefinitely was not a surprise. Mr. Obama had every reason to heed calls from lawmakers urging him to cancel the engagement; there was little point to meeting with Russia's leader just for the sake of a meeting that would only puff up Mr. Putin's prestige at the president's expense.
