Maryland defenseman Mike Bonanni thrives on driving his opponent into the ground. Whether it's a walloping body check or a menacing thwack of his stick, he intends to be the one left standing after the impact.So after flushing out the cuts and taking care of the bruises, Bonanni can kick back and begin countless hours of work for his business and finance courses.That's the life of Bonanni, part-time warrior and full-time graduate student, who's in pursuit of his master's degree in Maryland's MBA program.

MIAMI -- Where is the airplane?When a diver descended into the 8-foot deep, muck-encrusted tomb of ValuJet Flight 592 earlier this week, he found no cockpit voice recorder, no human remains, no substantial pieces of the jetliner.What diver Paul Toy did find was persuasive evidence to confirm investigators' worst fears: The DC-9 was virtually pulverized on impact."There is no aircraft in the pit," said Toy, who began -- and soon completed -- the underwater survey at the precise site of impact.

St. Paul Cos., the Minnesota property and casualty insurer that acquired USF&G, announced yesterday that it might cut 500 to 600 more jobs by the end of next year, a move that could include some job losses in Baltimore.The reductions were billed as a way to offset the company's falling profits in its commercial insurance business, and would be in addition to 2,000 job cuts already announced when St. Paul Cos. bought USF&G for $3.5 billion in April.Before it was acquired, USF&G employed about 2,500 people at its Mount Washington complex.

All of this talk about Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs playing Sunday against the Houston Texans is pretty funny. But, let's just use some common sense here. If the Ravens somehow lose their minds and put Suggs on the field, do you think it will be for more than five plays? Do you think he would have a significant impact? Now, ask this question: Why would the team put Suggs on the roster Sunday when the Ravens have a bye week coming up? It makes no sense. Suggs might have returned to practice Wednesday, but the Ravens will be very cautious when it comes to putting him on the field.

A consultant is recommending that Anne Arundel County quadruple impact fees for single-family homes and quintuple such fees for townhouses as a way to recoup the county's costs for roads, schools and other services. Since builders pass the one-time fees on to buyers, the increases would add nearly $9,000 to the price of a new single-family home and about $8,000 to the price of a new townhouse. But County Executive Janet S. Owens said yesterday that she doubted the increase would be that high for "pragmatic" reasons.

The graduating class at Glenelg High School should be allowed -- even encouraged -- to wear the blue ribbons in remembrance of Grace McComas ( "Blue ribbons for Grace," March 26). This was truly a tragedy, but it can also be made into lessons about the importance of kindness, empathy and the potential impact of individual and group actions onto others. This cause and effect should not be pushed aside but be made relatable to life as these young people grow and learn. Not acknowledging Ms. McComas' importance in the world will decrease the impact of the lessons that should be taken from all of this.

I am directly opposed to Fort Howard Development LLC's plans to build a 1,473-unit complex on the tip of the peninsula at Fort Howard. The impact of this project on local residents would be extreme. The highway leading into Fort Howard isn't adequate for its current usage, and this proposal would add at least five times more traffic, sewage and water disposal to this area. The resulting pollution and impact to our local waterways and on our local environment would be profound. Developers want to expand this area with a new medical clinic, restaurants, offices and living complexes to meet the needs of 1,500 families.

All of us mourn the loss of Richard E. Hug, who had a profound impact on the civic and political life of our community (May 7). I thought it might be useful to single out the incredible impact that Dick had on the formative years of the University of Maryland Medical System beginning in 1984 and continuing to this day. In our privatization process beginning in 1984, Dick was a key member of the first board of directors and, equally important to...
