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.

Sophomore center Jordan Williams will look to continue his streak of seven straight double doubles against a Colgate squad coming off its first win of the season on Sunday. Williams is the first Maryland player to post seven consecutive double doubles since Joe Smith accomplished the feat in 1995.

In the Feb. 26 and 27 editions of The Sun , the newspaper attempted to support two issues that had previously been rejected by our state government. The issues were gay marriage and abolishing capital punishment. It appears that now our governor and many of our legislators are ready to support gay marriage and abolish the death penalty. What bothers me the most about these issues is the manner in which The Sun and our legislators are attempting to justify their position. They are attempting to justify gay marriage by claiming it is a civil rights protection, and they are attempting to justify abolishing the death penalty by claiming it doesn't give closure to the victims.

Recent letters have trashed Maryland as a business friendly state. As the founder of one of Maryland's largest engineering firms employing about 1,000 engineers and scientists, we have found Maryland to be the ideal place to locate and grow a business. Businesses in the 21st century seek good markets, a skilled labor force, good schools and universities and a high quality of life in which to raise a family. Maryland is unparalleled in meeting these requirements. Jack Kinstlinger, Baltimore

As a businessman, I am proud to live in Maryland, a state that shows compassion, equality, fairness and intelligence in its governance. Lawmakers' recent action on gun control, marriage equality, death penalty repeal, infrastructure finance, school construction and tuition rates for undocumented immigrants make this an ideal state to call home. Jack Kinstlinger, Baltimore
