Angela Agnew brushed aside cigarette butts with her hand as she placed candles on the sidewalk, part of a memorial in front of her parents' Northwest Baltimore home Sunday afternoon. The litter might be unremarkable any other day, but lying right where Loressa "Ressy" Little and Leroy Agnew had tossed them every day from the porch, they served as yet another heartbreaking reminder of a couple gone too soon. Police said the two were gunned down inside their home in the 5200 block of Denmore Ave., in the Arlington neighborhood near Pimlico Racecourse, at about 1:27 a.m. Tuesday.

An apparent lovers quarrel ended violently and publicly yesterday when a Charles Village woman was chased from her home and fatally shot by her boyfriend in front of a neighbor's house up the street. The man then shot and killed himself. Police did not release the names of the victims, saying that neither was originally from the Baltimore area and next of kin had not been notified. The incident occurred about 1 p.m. in the 100 block of E. 32nd St., around the corner from a busy strip of restaurants and stores, on a day when many in the area were out enjoying the bright, summerlike afternoon.

In reference to the front page article on Oct. 7, "$1 fare eyed for free buses," I for one will not use the Charm City Circular if $1 charge is imposed; that's only one way, so the cost is really $2. I have a hybrid car, but in my opinion having a hybrid vehicle does not mean I can still drive because I use less gas and cause less damage to the atmosphere; no, it means that I too still have to drive less. The $1 (two-way, $2) charge is way more then the cost of me driving my hybrid.

Before every volleyball game, the Glen Burnie Gophers get into a circle on the court with their hands clasped above their heads and yell "Crush!"It's an appropriate ritual, because that's what usually happens in the Gophers' games, especially when Glen Burnie's Stacy Gilligan steps up to the net.Among the area's best players, the 5-foot-9 Gilligan is "killing" the Gophers' rivals at an alarming rate (10.3 kills per game)."When she goes to hit, it's almost certainly going to be a kill. I practiced with her last Monday and I'd have to admit I didn't like being on the other side of the net when she was hitting," said Glen Burnie coach Juanita Milani, who has an overall 124-58 record since she began coaching in 1978, including a 62-11 record over the last five years.

Harding told the jury in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

A Baltimore senator scuttled a contentious bill yesterday that would have limited police powers to enforce laws in the city's taverns, claiming to have successfully made her point. Sen. Joan Carter Conway, a Democrat, said she was taking the action in response to concerns expressed by community groups that the bill would make it harder for police to control public nuisances. Conway contended the bill would not have had that effect, but said it had been undermined by "all the mistruths that have been told."

The Glenelg volleyball team can always rely on senior outside hitter Rebecca Tursell to serve, dig and block. More importantly, however, the No. 5 Gladiators needed Tursell's array of power and accurate kills. Tursell, who recorded a season-high 18 kills against No. 9 Mount Hebron on Thursday, outdid herself last night as she posted 19 kills to lift host Glenelg to a 27-25, 25-18, 25-16 victory over No. 14 Atholton. Tursell, who also had an ace and an assist, was as comfortable blasting away at the net as she was using a deft touch.

One look at the Institute of Notre Dame's Brooks Webster slamming a volleyball can intimidate a lot of opponents. That happened to Chapelgate yesterday as the 6-foot middle hitter pounded out 20 kills and had 10 blocks to lead the No. 11 Indians to a 25-21, 25-19, 25-11 victory in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference match. "Starting out, we just got a little scared of her from all the rumors," said Chapelgate setter Valerie Pusateri. "We dug her up some, but they use her a lot. She's tall.

Andy Joyce drove his tow truck just after midnight to a West Baltimore service call, where he met a mother and small child waiting with their disabled vehicle. It was Nov. 1, 2010, and the 23-year-old had only worked a few weeks for Gordon Kelly's Quick Response towing company. It was the end of his shift. The mother and child got a ride from someone as Joyce lowered his truck's bed to tow the Dodge Durango near Mosher Street and Druid Hill Avenue. About two hours later, a passerby noticed the truck's door open, engine running, and Joyce slumped inside.

I would like to sit down with Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps and explain to him the permanency of death ( "Olympian Michael Phelps arrested for drunken driving a second time ," Sept. 30). In 2004, my son had just graduated high school and had his whole life ahead of him - until a drunk driver hit and killed him in November. Maybe Mr. Phelps would like to explain to me, since I have never received any explanation from the 55-year-old woman who struck my son, why he is above the law. What gives him the right to jeopardize everyone else?

In the last few weeks we've heard a lot about the Ebola epidemic and work to contain its spread and potentially tragic consequences. But influenza is a preventable infectious disease that represents a much greater risk to the health of Marylanders. Influenza (flu) is a seasonal disease that is most common in the winter and spring. Last year, almost 25,000 Marylanders sought care for flu symptoms. Anyone can get sick from the flu, but preschool age children (under 5 years of age), pregnant women and senior citizens are especially vulnerable to getting sick from influenza.

As the murder trial of a man Baltimore police labeled "Public Enemy No. 1" started this week, a prosecutor added a new twist to the case: Ramon Rodriguez was murdered, she said, because his killer had discovered he was helping police with an investigation. When authorities named Capone Chase as their most-wanted fugitive in July 2013, they made no mention that his victim was a police informant. They focused instead on the brutal details of the crime: The 21-year-old Rodriguez on his knees, shot through the head at a Greektown playground.
