A plea posted on Facebook over the weekend by a North Carolina woman has drawn locks of attention and within 48 hours, a resolution from Ocean City officials. Lauren Burr said that when she and her husband were dating in 2008, they visited Ocean City 's boardwalk and sealed their love with a lock placed on a post near a bench at Dorchester Street. The couple later married and started a family. Before their daughter Claire was born, they visited Ocean City and added a second smaller lock to the original one in her honor, carving a 'C' into the metal.

The presidential election of 2012 and Maryland's gubernatorial election of 2014 have much in common rhetorically in terms of their approaches to issues and spin, the two key components of political persuasion. The 2012 presidential election pitted a likable African-American Democratic incumbent president against a white, older Republican who had been out of politics for years. The 2014 Maryland gubernatorial race features a likable incumbent African-American Democratic lieutenant governor against a white, older Republican who has been out of politics for years.

When a woman refused to pay the automatic 17% gratuity at a Houston seafood restaurant named La Fisherman, she says the restaurant locked her and her party inside the restaurant and threatened to call the police. The story, which was reported by KRPC , the NBC-affiliate in Houston and began spreading on Wednesday to other websites like the Huffington Post, goes like this: The customer, Jasmine Marks, decided that the automatic gratuity the restaurant applies to checks forĀ  parties of five or more, and which is clearly stated on the menu, was null and void in her case.

You've got to be kidding about Anthony Brown being our next governor. Are we that stupid? ( "With money to spend, candidates for governor likely to launch ad blitz," May 28). The election will take place soon. We are about to have a coronation whether we realize it or not as the big money continues to roll in. Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is not a bad person but he botched the rollout of the Affordable Care Act in Maryland and he continues to support the disgraced state Sen. Ulysses Currie.

It's dyeable. It's bleachable. And it's highly sought after by thieves targeting shops in the Baltimore area and around the country. Unprocessed human hair - prized for providing women with long, flowing, natural-looking locks - has been swiped from half a dozen area beauty supply stores. The high-end hair, often sewn or glued in place to add length or volume, costs nearly $200 a bundle. Such steep prices have made the fashionable locks desirable among thieves , much like Nike Air Jordan Concords and Helly Hansen jackets.

Your editorial is wrong to advocate ignition interlocks for all first-time DUI offenders ( "Dancing around DUIs," May 20). It takes as little as two glasses of wine to get a 120-pound woman to the current .08 blood-alcohol concentration limit. At this level, she's about as dangerous as someone who talks on a hands-free cellphone. She should not be punished the same as someone with a BAC of .16 - the average for a drunk driver involved in a fatal crash. Yet that's exactly what mandatory interlocks for first-time DUI offenders would do. Instead of uniform punishments for DUI offenders, the severity of the punishment should be determined by the severity of the DUI - just as we do with speeding offenses, another major cause of roadway deaths.

While the rest of the citizens in the Free State will have the opportunity to watch the first televised gubernatorial debate among Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather Mizeur, I will have to be content watching "Jeopardy!" ( "The debate debate," May 1). That's because I live in a part of Garrett County that is an "orphan" media market - meaning someone in the federal government decided my local news is from Pittsburgh, not Annapolis, Baltimore or Washington, D.C. A democracy is based on informed citizenry, but out here we are precluded from learning about the candidates through these debates.

In the span of four days, Goucher went from absorbing the disappointment of losing to Landmark Conference rival Scranton to having the last word. After an 8-7 setback to the Royals on Saturday that prevented the Gophers from capturing the regular-season championship and the top seed in the league tournament, they returned the favor by knocking off Scranton, 8-4, in a tournament semifinal Wednesday night. The biggest difference, according to Goucher coach Brian Kelly, was the team's improved effort on defense.

Amid reports of an "active shooter" on campus Monday, Stevenson University students threw their desks against the classroom door, then prayed with near-strangers under computer carts. Just three days later, elementary and middle school students at KIPP charter schools in Baltimore were hiding with their teachers in a classroom, while police searched the building for a gunman and hundreds of parents rushed to a nearby school to wait anxiously for word about their children. There was no real danger to students or teachers in either incident.

The term around the Loyola lacrosse team is "Fletched," as in the opposing attackman got "Fletched. " Or when the Greyhouds' star defenseman runs away from two attackmen after stealing a ground ball, they both got "Fletched. " Loyola's Joe Fletcher might be the best defenseman in college lacrosse. He was the only college player selected to the U.S. national training roster for the 2014 World Cup, and he is a specialist, just like a face-off player. If you want to shut down the team's top goal scoring attackman, send Fletcher.
