The argument over who should take the lead in cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay cleanup misses the point that change for the better is already on its way ("Harris has it right: Let states enforce pollution law," July 19). Here in Dorchester County, the cleanup is gaining momentum precisely because all levels of government are on the same page. Sparked by the bay's new pollution diet and by assistance from the Environmental Protection Agency and the state, a group representing the farming community, city and county officials and citizens have made unprecedented progress toward putting together a concrete plan to clean up our waterways.

Every so often, there is reason to cheer a little louder both within the gates of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., and 350 miles down Interstate 95 at the U.S. Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, D.C. This year, the academy had a banner admissions class, enrolling 256 highly qualified, bright-eyed cadets who took their oaths of office under a beautiful New England summer sky on June 30th. The group, not including international cadets, boasts an average GPA of 3.87 and includes 214 varsity letter earners, numerous class presidents and many other talented young people who will lead our great nation into the next generation.

Like everyone else, I'm thrilled by the Ravens' victory - and I'm happy to be living in Baltimore ("Learning from Ravens," Feb. 5). Wouldn't it be great if our city could bottle the enthusiasm for the rest of the year? This is a fabulous place and we should constantly celebrate the positive. Baltimore is the undiscovered city of the East Coast with so much to offer. Now that our football team has famously put us on the map, we should take advantage of the incredible opportunity. The Ravens' victory may be of the moment, but now we must keep the momentum going!

Anne Arundel County officially opened a new water access point Wednesday in Shady Side, an offshoot of a citizen-led effort to increase public access to bodies of water. More than 70 residents and county officials attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Shady Side Park, and officials said attendees brought more than 30 kayaks to give the new facility a test drive. The access point - on Parish Creek, which feeds into the West and Rhode rivers - offers enthusiasts a place to put in their kayaks, canoes, inner tubes and paddleboards.

The withdrawal of Democrat Nancy L. Murphy from the Baltimore County executive's primary race is the latest in a string of recent events that has improved C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger's chances. Over the past few weeks, Third District Councilman Ruppersberger has secured the endorsements of the county police and teachers unions, the local AFL-CIO and the Battle Grove Democratic Club of Dundalk. Mrs. Murphy, once considered a serious threat for the Democratic nomination, needed those endorsements if she was to gain some momentum and give Mr. Ruppersberger a run for his money.

The proposed Odenton Town Square is the kind of development that should be replicated as Maryland prepares for the arrival of thousands of new federal workers. It is transit-oriented; it offers a mix of residential, commercial and hotel space (plus some affordable housing); and it represents public-private investment. Managing the expected growth from the military base realignment and closure process (BRAC) will be shared by state and local governments. But the state should use its power to ensure that the BRAC development revitalizes old communities and complements existing ones.

MANY OLD-TIMERS find it difficult to believe that after 25 years of false starts, more than $150 million worth of construction is under way along Eutaw and Howard streets, on the western edge of downtown. The city must now prepare for the next steps. Building a replacement for the outdated Baltimore Arena must be among them. For years, it has been evident that the 13,000-seat venue, built in the 1960s at the corner of Baltimore and Howard streets, is inadequate. Planners have identified 10 possible replacement sites, with the front-runners apparently being the existing Howard Street location or sites in the vicinity of the two stadiums farther south.

The "draft Mfume" movement is gaining momentum - and the draftee is not resisting. The former Baltimore congressman, Kweisi Mfume, has politely deflected the incessant questions about whether he might run for mayor next year. His friend, Council President Sheila Dixon, becomes mayor automatically when Martin O'Malley leaves the mayor's office in January to become governor. In recent days, Mr. Mfume says, people are all but chanting "Run, Kweisi, run." Last Tuesday evening, he arrived at a meeting of the Baltimore BLEWS, the local Black/Jewish Forum, to echoes of that same clamor.

In the aftermath of the Ravens' demoralizing 34-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers Sunday night, it's easy to forget that the Ravens had a chance to seize the lead on their opening drive. But kicker Billy Cundiff's 36-yard field-goal attempt strayed wide right, and the team never got that chance again. That missed opportunity could have been significant, according to running back Ray Rice. “It was momentum, but I'm not going to say that was the deciding factor in the game,” he said.

Americans should not be deterred from working to improve our health care system despite difficulties with implementing the websites of the health insurance exchanges as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Our resolve for improved health care should be stronger than ever. The U.S. has the best doctors and nurses in the world, and they work very hard, but they work every day in a broken system. We spend 40 percent more per capita on care than other countries, yet we do not provide coverage for all of our citizens.

It would probably be fair to say that Navy would have preferred a route other than backing into the Patriot League tournament, as it did on Saturday. The team suffered a 14-7 loss to archrival Army, but seized the sixth and final spot in the conference tournament courtesy of Bucknell's 13-1 rout of Lafayette and Colgate's 11-9 decision over Holy Cross. Still, the Midshipmen (4-7 overall and 3-5 in the league) are in the tournament and would love nothing more than to grab a little momentum heading into Tuesday's quarterfinal against Lehigh (10-4, 5-2)

The Maryland basketball team has teased its fans - and its coach - many times this season. The Terps have often followed promising performances, such as Saturday's 83-71 win over Florida State at Comcast Center, with perplexing ones. More often than not, the games after some of its better wins have been among the worst for Mark Turgeon's team. Will Maryland (14-10 overall, 6-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference) change its pattern Monday night here at John Paul Jones Arena against No. 20 Virginia (19-5, 10-1)

In hip-hop, momentum matters. After the success of 2012's "The Yellow Album," Los Angeles rapper Dom Kennedy knew he had captured more ears than ever before. But the 29-year-old born Dominic Hunn refused to consider his next album, last October's "Get Home Safely," his only shot at next-level stardom. "Everything is not dependent on this project or that project. It's all an evolution of growing as a person," Kennedy said on the phone from downtown Los Angeles last week. "My mindset going into 'Get Home Safely' was making a project that I could be happy with for the rest of my life and something that will test the time.

At first glance, the UMBC men's basketball team's 63-48 victory over visiting Navy at RAC Arena on Monday night might not seem critical. But since the win snapped a four-game losing skid for the Retrievers, the outcome was quite significant for coach Aki Thomas. “It was a pretty big win,” he said Tuesday morning. “We've been playing pretty well at home, and it was fortunate that we could play at home and win at home again. It gives us some momentum going into our league play on [Jan.]

TORONTO - Even though the two-run homer right-hander Chris Tillman yielded in the seventh inning was the difference on the scoreboard in the Orioles' 4-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night, the familiar flubs of an offense that continues to struggle with runners in scoring position sealed the club's fourth loss in its past five games. These Orioles don't like the comparisons between this year's club and last year's playoff team. They've long turned the page on 2012. But the marked difference between the teams was on display Saturday against a last-place Toronto team.

Six months into her historic term as Baltimore's first female mayor, Sheila Dixon has been riding high - the homicide rate is at a two-decade low, the City Council passed her budget almost untouched, and she has won praise for her work on gun control and homelessness. But yesterday a lingering, two-year state investigation into City Hall contracts that led to two guilty pleas by Dixon associates landed on her doorstep when prosecutors and police searched her West Baltimore home. Political observers say Dixon may have a harder time maintaining momentum as the probe continues.

When you consider the final score, it's hard to make the case that any one play undid the Ravens in Thursday night's ugly NFL opener against the Denver Broncos. But it isn't very difficult to determine the moment when that intangible pendulum called momentum swung back so hard it knocked the defending Super Bowl champions all the way into next week. Maybe Peyton Manning still would have picked the Ravens secondary apart if John Harbaugh had thrown his replay flag and ended Denver's first drive of the second half.

Last winter when Milford Mill football coach Reggie White started thinking about teams he might schedule for the 2013 season opener, he first considered such powerhouses as Class 4A state champion Henry A. Wise or Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference runner-up Calvert Hall. Even though the No. 9 Millers went 11-2 and reached the Class 3A state semifinals last fall, White figured that might be a little ambitious. Then, he thought about teams at the other end of the spectrum but didn't want a pushover.
