In his State of the Union speech last month, President Barack Obama charged Vice President Joe Biden to "lead an across-the-board reform of America's training programs to make sure they have one mission: Train Americans with the skills employers need and match them to good jobs that need to be filled right now. " We respectfully ask that Mr. Biden consider beginning in Baltimore and that he take the following into account: We have learned a...

Southwest Airlines will begin offering non-stop flights between Baltimore and Dallas in October, the airline said Monday. Southwest is based in Dallas, and is the largest carrier at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. A federal law, the Wright amendment, has restricted service out of Dallas Love Field since 1980, limiting direct flights to airports in Texas and in nearby states. The restrictions will be lifted on Oct. 13. The same day, Southwest will begin non-stop flights from Dallas to BWI, as well as to Denver, Las Vegas, Orlando and Chicago Midway.

"No one who works full-time should ever have to raise a family in poverty. " That was the message President Barack Obama brought from Tuesday night's State of the Union address to a Costco warehouse in Lanham on Wednesday morning, and it's hard to believe that there's much disagreement on that sentiment. Yet based on the reaction from Congressional Republicans, one would think that President Obama's decision to issue an executive order raising the minimum wage for new federal contractual workers to $10.10 per hour from the current $7.25 was tantamount to socialism.

COLLEGE PARK -- Nick Faust's progression from an inconsistent starter to a contributor off the Maryland bench in nearly every game played out during the second half of his team's 74-66 victory over Notre Dame on Wednesday night at Comcast Center. Faust played more of a supporting role offensively to junior guard Dez Wells, who led Maryland's comeback from a nine-point halftime deficit by scoring all 17 of his points in the second half, as well as sophomore guard Seth Allen, who added 14 in his first start since coming back from a broken foot.

Gavin Howell's season debut turned out to be perfect timing for Boys' Latin. Howell scored a match-ending pin to help the Lakers (8-1) rally past host Calvert Hall, 37-36, on Thursday in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference match. A lingering back injury from football season had kept the junior out of the lineup, but he refused to sit out another match with the win against the Cardinals at stake. Howell, a transfer from Towson High who starts at middle linebacker, pinned Calvert Hall's Nick Donatelli at 220 pounds.

Needle exchange advocates are urging lawmakers to use a coming must-pass budget bill to lift the decades-old prohibition on spending federal funds for clean syringes for drug users, supporters of the effort said Thursday. The groups are pressing members of Congress, including Senate Appropriations Committee chairwoman Barbara A. Mikulski of Maryland, to ease a ban they say does little to curb drug abuse but stymies efforts to prevent HIV and hepatitis infections caused by needles.

During the golden age of Major Indoor Soccer League in the 1980s, the game featured players who dazzled fans with their nifty footwork, creativity and individual skills. Blast veteran forward Adauto Neto showed similar form Friday night against the visiting Missouri Comets. In the second quarter, he tied the game with a side-winding, half-volley from deep in the right corner that found the top of the net. With the game still tied in the third quarter and the Blast on a power play, Neto's perfectly timed backheel pass in tight quarters found a streaking Lucio Gonzaga, who scored to give the home team its first lead.

On a Saturday morning in December, well before the sun was up, 3-year-old Bobby Mercado was up and ready to go. His destination: the North Pole. First came the long drive to Washington Dulles International Airport, a ride which, despite light traffic, seemed to take forever. As Bobby and his parents, Jean and Robert Mercado, approached the airport, a series of three large flashing signs directed them - as well as other children who were arriving - to special parking for the North Pole flight.

As I waited for Maryland guard  Seth Allen to return from a broken bone in his left foot suffered during the preseason,  I thought about last season's Duke game at Comcast Center. It wasn't just that the then-freshman  had hit the game-winning free throws against the Blue Devils with 2.8 seconds left. It was that he scored all of his 16 points in the second half. Allen - whose absence coincided with  some trying times for his teammates - is a charismatic athlete who can score in bursts.
