Once again, the American military has been insulted by a commander-in-chief who has no military experience. President Barack Obama was getting off Marine One when he was saluted by the Marines and returned that salute with a coffee cup in his hand. As a Vietnam vet I find that offensive and wonder how our current group of active military and veterans feel about it. I would rather the president not salute at all rather than do it with such flagrant disrespect. Maybe what we need is a classroom session in military courtesy for our non-military civilian leaders.

The Glenn L. Martin Aircraft Co. employed 53,000 workers at Middle River at the peak of World War II, producing thousands of aircrafts and bombers and serving as a key economic engine in the Baltimore area. But that was another era. The company — now defense behemoth Lockheed Martin Corp. — announced Thursday it will stop manufacturing at the Middle River site next year, though 470 white-collar professionals will remain there. The move marks the end of a long-term decline for the Baltimore manufacturer that helped build the region's middle-class communities and put Middle River on the map. "That plant was the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world during World War II," said Richard Clinch, economic development director for the Jacob France Institute at the University of Baltimore.

I have not missed a primary or general election since I was old enough to vote more than 50 years ago. I am well aware that political ads are frequently misleading. However, after teaching mathematics for 44 years, I am annoyed at how GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan reaches a completely illogical conclusion about the number of people who would move out of Maryland if they could. In his ad, he asks a roomful of Republicans how many of them know someone who wants to move. When nearly half of them raise there hands, he concludes that nearly half of Marylanders would move and he is troubled by it. Using this logic, if he asked the group how many people know a woman who lives in Maryland, he would have to conclude that every person in Maryland is a woman.

With school back in session, parents are breathing a collective sigh of relief. No more wet bathing suits on the bedroom floor or kids begging for snacks at 15-minute intervals. But the school year brings its own set of challenges, many of which arrive in children's homework folders. Every assignment - from daily math homework to science projects with months of lead time - raises an important question: How much should parents help their children with schoolwork? The answer, according to area educators, is that it varies: Every assignment is different, and so is every child.

The story is a familiar one for many Maryland homeowners living along eastern Baltimore County's shoreline: The appeal, initially, is in having a summer vacation cottage. That is, until the inhabitants realize that with a bit of remodeling and updating, they can live in their dream home on the water all year long. This was the case for Bill and Jo Ann Loeliger and their three children, Erin, Kelsey and Burk. Their contemporary three-story home sits high on a bank off the south shore of the Middle River near Turkey Point - a setting quite different from that of their previous home in northern Baltimore County.

A 17th century land grant formerly known as Planter's Paradise, is now the setting for 2316 Bauernschmidt Drive in Baltimore County. Here, on property once owned by Baltimore philanthropist Enoch Pratt, sits a charming example of a rural frame-and-clapboard mansion designed in the Italianate style. This mansion was built in 1909 by Agnes and Frederick Bauernschmidt, who owned a brewing company in Baltimore, as their summer home just blocks from the Middle River. Now on the market for $995,000, this manor house on three-quarters of an acre showcases a three-sided wrap-around porch with columns that support a four-sided second-story balcony.

A former high-ranking Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs official pleaded guilty to extortion Monday in federal court after falsely claiming about $1.4 million in government benefits over a 16-year period. David Clark, a 67-year-old Hydes resident, admitted fabricating documents and claims to secure federal benefits and state tax waivers for himself and at least 17 other veterans. He acknowledged making up records in his role as the deputy chief of claims for the state agency, including fake doctors' letters saying that claimants suffered from diabetes and documents listing false tours of Vietnam and awards such as Purple Hearts from 1995 until his retirement in 2011.
