The Sun (Sept. 7) reported a homicide in March had occurred in the close-knit community of Pumphrey, when in fact it did not occur within the boundaries of Pumphrey. The mobile trailer park where the killing took place has no ties to the neighborhood. Pumphrey is a historic community, established in 1860. Pumphrey has been in existence almost as long as the Sun. As a longtime subscriber of The Sun, I am appalled as well as many residents of the Pumphrey community. With crime on the rise, we do have our share of small petty occurrences, as most communities do. Conversely, we do not deserve this ownership as stated in the article.

A full lunar eclipse will occur during the Full Hunter's Moon, creating a spectacle that may make the moon appear in a rusty hue early Wednesday morning. The moon will be full at 6:51 a.m. Wednesday, so it will be shining big and bright Tuesday night, though it won't be technically full yet. Just about half an hour before that, the peak of a lunar eclipse will begin. "Totality" of lunar eclipse starts at 6:25 a.m., falling just before sunrise on the East Coast. The moon will be passing within the Earth's shadow.

Just a few seconds before her coach beckoned her, Stacie, 16, was leaning on a fence at ground zero."There was a loud bang," she recalled. "I turned around and this big piece of metal was crashing into the fence 10 feet away."

It's Friday the 13th, and whenever that happens in February (in a non-leap year). March delivers another. Worse still (for the triskaidekaphobes among us), this year brings a third Friday the 13th in November. Such triple threats occur in 14 or 15 years per century. The last was in 1998; the next is in 2015. Friday falls on the 13th more than any other day. Just our luck

In the soft autumn mist, the Tokyo parks are filled with young couples strolling together, doing what, more or less, their parents, grandparents and great ancestors have all done before.It would all merge into the hazy fog if not for the jarring new act known to occur. A kiss.Traditionally, the Japanese don't. Not in public. Not, it is said, even in private. Pornographic videos are sold at convenience stores, and there's nudity on late-night television. But lip-to-lip contact is something else.

Tuesday's flooding may have been extreme, but it wasn't unfamiliar for much of the region. The low spots are well known: Compromise and Dock streets in Annapolis, Caroline and Thames streets in Fells Point. After a good rain and a high tide, they're under water. For Maryland's two largest cities on the Chesapeake, flooding that once occurred just a day or two in any given year is increasingly common - more so than anywhere else in the country, according to a recent federal study.

A freight train struck a garbage truck Tuesday morning at the same street-level railroad crossing in Rosedale where a similar collision 15 months ago resulted in a fiery explosion. The incident could have been far worse, considering what happened last year when the train derailed and the explosion caused widespread damage throughout the nearby industrial area. The CSX Transportation train remained on the tracks this time, and no one was injured in the crash at 8:15 a.m. near 68th Street and Lake Drive.

SOMETHING IS WRONG on Interstate 97, which links Baltimore to Annapolis. The past three months have seen four fatal accidents involving out-of-control southbound vehicles crossing the median strip. When these accidents occur so close in time and vicinity, something other than coincidence is at work.Prior to the two most recent accidents, state officials reviewed the highway and concluded that its design met accepted standards, according to state Transportation Secretary David L. Winstead and Col. David B. Mitchell, superintendent of the Maryland State Police.

State police say three people found dead Tuesday in a single-vehicle crash along a southbound ramp from Interstate 83 onto I-695 in Baltimore County had likely been there since early Sunday morning. Police said the crash site wasn't discovered for two days because it was far from the roadway and hidden by trees and brush. When a driver reported seeing something that looked like a vehicle in the woods Tuesday, police responded and found pieces of the car and the bodies of the three men. The discovery prompted an investigation that closed ramps at southbound I-83 onto the outer loop of the Beltway for more than six hours, from late afternoon into the evening.
