I used to have dozens of monarch butterflies in my garden — now almost none. How can I attract them again? Research showed that the precipitous decline in monarchs a couple of years ago was mainly because of extreme weather, illegal logging in Mexico and herbicide use, which have almost wiped out the food source of monarchs — milkweed. We can't counter the first two causes but we can plant milkweed or ornamentals in the milkweed family such as butterfly weed. Without a food source for monarch caterpillars to eat, there can be no monarchs.

One of my sons and his wife returned from a trip to Paris a couple weeks ago. They came for dinner and showed us their pictures. Of the Palace at Versailles and its magnificence, he remarked, "No wonder there was a revolution. " I had the same reaction when visiting what was then the Soviet Union some years ago. Everything grand, everything splendid, everything gilded, everything remarkable for its beauty and pleasing to the senses predated the 1917 Revolution and was constructed on the backs of the peasantry.

The Anne Arundel County school board adopted a $1.02 billion operating budget last week for the next fiscal year that includes funding for employee pay increases and the money to open a new contract school. But the panel criticized county government for taking money from the school system's health fund balance to foot those bills. The board unanimously adopted the operating budget, which falls shy of the $1.04 billion proposal that interim Superintendent Mamie Perkins offered in December.

Pat Kennedy knew what was coming. There was just nothing he or his Towson team could do about it. Old Dominion rolled to an 86-56 victory against the Tigers in Saturday's Colonial Athletic Association quarterfinal, out-rebounding Towson by a single-game tournament record 33 boards. The Monarchs (24-8), the top seed and regular-season champions, had 60 rebounds, also a single-game tournament record, to the Tigers' 27 and outscored them 44-20 in the paint. "I saw them rebound early in the season against Georgetown.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- If the Bandits do hold on for the AHL's final playoff spot, they will almost certainly look back on yesterday's game as the pivotal point in their season.The Bandits erased a four-goal deficit in a seven-minute span of the second period, and the resulting 7-6 victory over Carolina may have erased the Monarchs from postseason contention.Pavel Trnka scored the game-winner on a bouncing shot from the blue line with 7: 14 remaining for a victory that put the Bandits eight points ahead of Carolina in the chase for the last remaining playoff berth and left the Monarchs demoralized and deflated.

County schools will launch the new academic year Aug. 25, but parents seeking to enroll their children in the district's new contract school should also pay attention to another date: June 18. That's the day school officials say it needs all funding in place for Monarch Global Academy Public Contract School, which is scheduled to open in August in the Laurel area. The $5.8 million that officials say they need for Monarch Global was not specifically earmarked in County Executive Laura Neuman's budget proposal to the County Council.

The school board had voted in July to build the new charter school.

State health investigators suspect that a deadly outbreak of infections at Monarch Medspa in Timonium last year may have stemmed from "visibly dirty" equipment or two health care workers who carried the same bacterium found in patients, according to a report released Friday. The investigation found that doctors and nurses sometimes failed to wear gloves and that there was no separation of sterilized and dirty equipment. Health officials inspected the facility and interviewed patients after three infections were reported in September 2012; one of those patients, a 59-year-old Lochearn woman, died days after undergoing liposuction.

Some additional notes from Maryland's 47-10 victory over Old Dominion at Byrd Stadium: * It was a pretty large and boisterous fan contingent for Old Dominion that showed up in College Park and sat in the visitors' section. They even chanted "Let's go Monarchs. " But then they got silent as the Terps piled up points. * Old Dominion fans thought their team had a touchdown on a pass to Blair Roberts with the Monarchs trailing, 3-0. He was ruled out of the end zone. “There's no one call that was the issue in this game,” Monarchs coach Bobby Wilder said.

Maryland is moving to toughen regulations on the fast-growing medspa industry - a move designed to narrow a "loophole" and prevent deaths such as one last year following a liposuction treatment at a Timonium facility. Regulations being discussed by state officials would bar plastic surgeons from performing liposuction and other procedures in medspas and medical offices unless the facilities are inspected by the government or third-party accrediting bodies, Maryland Secretary of Health Joshua Sharfstein said.

As Monarch Academy music teacher Kenzie Turk talked about the trials of living with Type 1 diabetes, her service dog, Bear, lay nearby, drifting in and out of a deep sleep. Dozing in class isn't usually acceptable at the public charter school in Glen Burnie, but the 8-month-old black Labrador retriever had endured a busy night, waking Turk more than two dozen times to alert her that complications from the chronic disease had flared again, prompting her to take action before something went tragically wrong.

About five years ago, when the Baltimore Skipjacks were a solid third-place finisher in the American Hockey League, Jim Hrivnak was in goal nearly every game and he was one of the main reasons for the team's success.A lot has changed in the ensuing years, but for one game, at least, it was like old times at the Baltimore Arena for Hrivnak last night as he led the Carolina Monarchs to a 2-1 victory over the Bandits.The home team hammered 30 shots the Carolina goalie's way and just one of them slipped by as the Bandits were failing in their quest to escape the Southern Division cellar for the first time.

The Towson offense moved the ball against Old Dominion and actually outgained the high-powered Monarchs. But the Tigers fell behind early and simply couldn't recover in time. Towson was 10 points down before it ran a play and never caught up as Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke threw for 264 yards, ran for 71 more and accounted for three touchdowns to beat the Tigers, 31-20, in a Colonial Athletic Association game at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The Tigers beat Old Dominion, 39-35, last year en route to the CAA title, and the Monarchs certainly remembered that.
