Donald Whitby, a library media specialist at Arbutus Middle School, decided not to join the Baltimore County teachers union when he began teaching in 2001. So he was surprised when a large packet of information from the union arrived in the mail at his home in August, demanding that he begin paying union dues. Whitby and about 2,000 other teachers in Baltimore County soon discovered that the county had negotiated a new agreement with the teachers union that gives it the right to start charging a fee for the representation its provides nonmembers.

Sam's Club is waiving membership requirements for military personnel and retirees and their families during the government shutdown. The retailer said Thursday it decided to waive the fees after dozens of commissaries on military bases were closed by the shutdown. "Military personnel, retirees and their families heavily depend on commissaries for low-cost groceries and everyday needs," Sam's Club's announcement said.  The retailer said it planned to waive the fees at Sam's Club locations near military bases until the government re-opens the commissaries.

Catherine Holmes' route home in Davidsonville takes her on a quarter-mile walk in the woods, over a fallen tree, through a shallow stream and along a swaying cable bridge to reach her log-sided cabin. Then she climbs through a window to get in. Holmes locks both doors from the inside when she leaves because she's worried about what might happen in her absence. And she seldom leaves. The 54-year-old nudist is in a legal dispute with her landlord, a nudist club called the Maryland Health Society Inc., which has ordered her off the property.

Denver's announcement Thursday that it will leave the Eastern College Athletic Conference and move to the Big East for immediate membership next season could impact Johns Hopkins' search for a conference that the program can call home. The Big East was one of a few leagues that popped up as a potential landing area for a Blue Jays program that has won nine national championships, but was left out of the NCAA tournament this spring for the first time since 1971. The Big East was an attractive suitor for Johns Hopkins because the conference needed a sixth team to join Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John's and Villanova so that it could retain the automatic qualifier it had for the NCAA tournament.

Criticism mounted Thursday over the gift of a National Rifle Association lifetime membership from Anne Arundel County Republicans to a boy who was suspended from school in March when he chewed a pastry into the shape of a pistol. "It's outrageous that elected officials in our state who don't have anywhere near all the facts of this situation would choose to exploit an 8-year-old child for political purposes in a stunt like this," Anne Arundel County schools spokesman Bob Mosier said Thursday.

When he talks about the Washington Nationals, chief operating officer Andy Feffer uses words like “hip” and “fun.” That's by design, of course. Baseball likes to draw on its traditions, but it also needs to attract new generations of fans. That's particularly true of the Nats, who arrived in 2005 and are trying to embrace their newness. The team is big into social media and has been expanding the audience for its official blog, “Curly W Live.” This season, the club introduced its season plan holders to a personalized card that allows speedy entry into the ballpark without a traditional ticket.

The 8-year-old Anne Arundel County boy who was suspended for biting a pastry into the shape of a gun received standing ovation and a lifetime membership to the National Rifle Association Wednesday night. At a fundraiser for Anne Arundel County Republicans, House Minority Leader Nicholaus R. Kipke presented Josh Welch with the membership, which cost $550, during a tongue-in-cheek presentation that involved a Pop-Tart fashioned into pistol and gun safety tips. Josh's March 1 suspension from Park Elementary School for chewing a pastry into the shape of a firearm captured national attention over how seriously students should be punished for such threats.
