Maryland is the fifth-worst state to retire, at least according to a recent ranking that accounted for climate, crime, life expectancy, taxes and the cost of living. The only states worse than here are, in order: Nevada, Michigan, Alaska and South Carolina, according to MoneyRates.com, a financial site. Best places to spend your golden years? New Hampshire is No. 1, followed by Hawaii, South and North Dakota, Iowa, Virginia, Utah, Connecticut, Vermont and Idaho. But the retirement equation is often more complex than a ranking based on raw data.

Gilman senior Kenneth Goins committed Monday afternoon to play football for Maryland. Goins, 5-foot-11, 210 pounds, doubled as a running back and a defensive end for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion and No. 1 Greyhounds, but he will be a running back for the Terrapins. He scored a touchdown in the 34-32 double-overtime win against No. 2 Calvert Hall for the Greyhounds' 10 th A Conference title. An All-Metro defensive end last season, Goins chose the Terps from among a final three that included Syracuse and Tulane.

My congratulations on your Sunday article ("Small towns, big love") about some of Maryland's small towns. It was a great article! I would hope you would follow it up with a whole series of articles about Maryland towns. The series could contain a brief summary about the town, followed by a minimum of several paragraphs and photos about each town. I believe this would stir interest in nearby travel locations, fun and inexpensive trips, and increase knowledge about our state. It might even sell more papers!

A mid-November matchup with Atlantic Coast Conference-favorite Florida State at Byrd Stadium highlights Maryland's 2012 football schedule, which the conference released Monday. The Seminoles are one of nine bowl teams from last year the Terps will face this season, and represent, on paper, the Terps' toughest test in league play. A consensus preseason top-10 team, Florida State returns 18 starters from last season's 9-4 team, including nine starters off a dominant Seminoles defense.

As I write out my check to Baltimore Gas & Electric this month, I am struck, once again, by the fact that these payments are processed out of state - in this case, Pennsylvania. Why is a Maryland utility that is a state-regulated monopoly allowed to move all the jobs (and the associated income for the state in property taxes, housing, income taxes, sales taxes, shopping, etc.) that come from payment processing out of the state of Maryland? Their answer is, most probably, that it saves them money, but it doesn't save their customers money.

Thanks for a balanced op-ed page on Jan. 4 when you had Gov. Martin O'Malley patting himself on the back for his meaningless and justly-forgotten "Believe" campaign ("O'Malley: believing worked") right next to Marta Mossburg's intelligent commentary with suggestions that could actually improve the state of Maryland ("Md. needs fewer laws, not more"). One would hope that the former writer would take a break from his voodoo financial funds-shifting and gerrymandering and read the latter one's suggestions.
