To the surprise of no one, the Harrison twins revealed this week that they consider Kentucky and Maryland their top two schools. Aaron Harrison Sr. told ESPN.com's Reggie Rankin that his five-star sons trimmed Baylor and Villanova from their list, leaving the Terps and Wildcats as co-leaders and SMU "a distant third. " With the news of the Harrison twins' final list, KentuckySports.com offered its take on where the 2013 guards stand. Harrison Sr. told the Herald-Leader earlier this week that the family had no more visits planned, though a trip to Maryland on Oct. 12 for that school's midnight madness remains a “possibility.” He said the twins would not be visiting Kentucky before making a decision.

How disappointing to see the visual summary of state spending from 2008 to present in teacher-to-pupil ratio in The New York Times . Maryland was the worst state for not putting funds back into education after the recession. We need to reinvigorate spending in our Maryland public schools. With all the new gambling money in the state coffers, we need to embrace a first-rate education. Large classes do little to stimulate minds and foster lifelong learners. The articles I read in The Sun claim Maryland has a great educational system.

Well, Comrade Gov. Martin O'Malley has literally deluged Maryland taxpayers with new taxes, fees, licenses and tolls ("Marylanders' wallets run on empty," July 2). The People's Republic of Maryland now taxes the rain that falls on your home. The "in the bag" liberal socialist media, refuses to condemn such action even while this nation is in the midst of a depression, not a recession, but a real depression! It is not only the jobs that will be lost, as more and more businesses and industries "vote with their feet" to leave this socialist Garden of Eden, no, it is more than that.

Dreary job reports coupled with the news that Maryland is projecting $405 million in less revenue for the current fiscal year and the next has caused the O'Malley/Brown cheerleaders at The Sun to put on the pompoms and go into full attack mode ( "Apocalypse? Not now," Sept. 26). Various explanations are offered either in articles or editorials rationalizing the inability to eliminate the proclaimed structural deficit, including: the sequestration, federal budget cuts, lots of other states have the same problem, the dog ate the homework, etc. Missing in the analysis of The Sun is the one explanation that is right before everyone's eyes: Maryland is spending too much money.

Speaking as a veteran who served for eight years as a Naval Reserve Officer, five in World War II and three more during the Korean Conflict, it was with tears in my eyes that I read The Sun's article, "VA falls short on helping veterans," (Jan. 27) as I sadly realized that I could have just as easily been a member of this group. In order to lend a helping hand to this national endeavor, a couple of years ago I signed up with the Wounded Warriors Project whose headquarters is located in Topeka, Kansas in order to make a monthly contribution to this worthy cause.

The call for the wild is being heard again across Maryland — though not everyone welcomes it. More than a decade after the last addition to the state's network of wildlands, Department of Natural Resources officials have proposed a major expansion of the legally protected wilderness areas, including a section of northwestern Baltimore County. They want to preserve from development, cars and even bicycles those spots that still harbor rare plants and animals, ancient trees and other remnants of what Maryland looked like before European settlers arrived nearly 400 years ago. "These are the last great places of Maryland," said John F. Wilson, who is coordinating the agency effort to name additional wildlands.
