The graduating class at Glenelg High School should be allowed -- even encouraged -- to wear the blue ribbons in remembrance of Grace McComas ( "Blue ribbons for Grace," March 26). This was truly a tragedy, but it can also be made into lessons about the importance of kindness, empathy and the potential impact of individual and group actions onto others. This cause and effect should not be pushed aside but be made relatable to life as these young people grow and learn. Not acknowledging Ms. McComas' importance in the world will decrease the impact of the lessons that should be taken from all of this.

An attempt last week by a Harford delegate to secure more money for county schools was rebuked by the chairman of the county delegation, who apologized to House leaders and said the request was out of line. Del. Susan K. McComas, a Republican, said Harford's modest school construction request had been overshadowed by other counties that "asked for the moon and the stars." She offered an amendment to Senate Bill 370 on Monday that would add about $6 million to Harford at the expense of five counties that received significantly more.

Every Saturday morning at 7:45, Vicki McComas hustles from her Fells Point rowhouse down through her storefront and out the door with map in hand. A brown metallic Mercury Pacer pulls up, and Susan Milukas, her blonde hair still disheveled from the bed pillow, honks. Neither woman has had coffee yet when Vicki squeezes into the passenger seat and Susan drives off, their adrenalin pumping at the thought of what they might find. They were in their early 30s when this Saturday routine began 16 years ago. Vicki, a potter, had just opened her Aliceanna Street junk shop, Saratoga Trunk, and when her husband balked at taking her shopping, Susan volunteered.

Big-stage events such as theKonica MinoltaFace-Off Classicat M&T Bank Stadium are usually a showcase for explosive offenses and highlight-reel goals. But four of the six participants at Saturday's Classic feature a defenseman who has been an All-American, and one of the other teams has a player who was on pace for a similar honor in 2011 before a season-ending shoulder injury. That's how important Johns Hopkins junior Tucker Durkin, Virginia redshirt senior Matt Lovejoy, North Carolina senior Charlie McComas , Cornell junior Jason Noble and Princeton senior Chad Wiedmaier are to their respective teams.
