Peter Hermann's column ("Nothing new about fear-of-crime complaints," Aug. 4) should come as no surprise to anyone with a modicum of discernment who watches local TV news (which I do not). Fear is their stock in trade. None of the local outlets believe their role is to inform and educate. Their sole purpose is to sell eyeballs to advertisers and they have all embraced the adage "if it bleeds, it leads." This is also why they go to full coverage at the threat of two snowflakes. Unfortunately, TV is where the majority of Marylanders get their news and they rarely question it. I live in Baltimore County and know many people who will not venture into the city for any reason.

When the first video of Ray Rice dragging his then-fiancee off a casino elevator like a slab of meat appeared, I thought, "God bless TMZ. " With TMZ's release of video today showing him punching Janay Palmer twice and knocking her to the floor, I say, God bless TMZ again and again. You can read what I wrote in February here under the headline: "Ray Rice and how TMZ counters the great American hype machine. " TMZ did the job the mainstream sports media failed to do in showing us the ugliness of this incident.

Baltimore County and Baltimore City fire departments - as well as local Zips Cleaners outlets - are supporting the annual WBAL Radio Coats for Kids campaign, which provides gently used coats to needy children and adults throughout the region. People with used coats in good condition may donate them by taking them to one of several Zips stores, where they will be cleaned free of charge and given to the campaign. WBAL requires that all coats donated be professionally cleaned.

Liberty Tsakalos, a former corporate treasurer who managed the retail shop of the H&S Bakery, the Southeast Baltimore family-owned business that was co-founded by her husband, brother and father, died Tuesday of Alzheimer's disease complications at her Harbor East home. She was 94. "She was an anomaly of her time. She was a strong woman working in a man's world, which was especially true of the commercial baking industry in the 1950s and '60s," said her grandson Michael Tsakalos of Hunt Valley.

Maryland State Police warn: beware of fake Apples. In a raid last week at Arundel Mills in Hanover, police confiscated hundreds of counterfeit Apple products being sold at the Cyberion store and the ST Tech Pros kiosk, according to state police. The haul, valued at more than $89,000, included bogus iPhones and parts, iPad replacement screens and fake Apple product ID stickers. Police are warning consumers to beware of what they're buying, and will present the results of their investigation to the Anne Arundel County State's Attorney for consideration of possible charges in the case.

I received an e-mail from a person who rents an apartment in a converted old farmhouse in Carroll County and who has what she thinks might be a serious wiring problem. She writes: "I only have working outlets in half of my apartment, and most of the time when I use my dryer, it trips the main breaker, not the breaker it is on. "On a rare occasion I will see that a light on the outlet works and then it doesn't again for most of the time. .... At one point, if I had two outlets running and/or only two lights on in the whole apartment, it would trip the main breaker.

Do they know what they're doing? Construction jobs pretty good money, but then they just end. Retail sales…many low paying, and often dead-end. White Marsh Mall…not exactly packed. It's acres of blacktop with much underused. Look out Chesapeake Bay, more runoff infused. So once in a while we may walk through an aisle of one brick and mortar. But then we look down to check on device how cheap online, and leave for best price.

Regarding Heather Patti's op-ed about the Nottingham Ridge outlet mall proposal, for the past 15 years I have worked to lighten school overcrowding in Perry Hall and White Marsh, and after my election to the Baltimore County Council I down-zoned more than 400 acres of land, blocking hundreds of new homes from being built ( "Is a mega mall slipping in under the radar?" June 13). The current Nottingham Ridge plan reverses this work to lighten school overcrowding. Approved by my predecessor, it will flood our schools with students from 1,250 apartments and condominiums, with no clear plan to build a desperately-needed middle or high school.

Open retail strife has broken out in White Marsh as the owners of the area's mall and other established retail centers foment opposition to a proposed upscale outlet mall along Interstate 95. Paragon Outlet Partners proposed building a 525,000-square-foot center with about 100 outlet stores, including brands such as Calvin Klein, Coach and Kate Spade, that would draw customers from across the region and off I-95. The Baltimore-based firm specializes in such malls, developing centers closer to population centers than outlets historically have located.

A new mega outlet mall - planned for right next to the White Marsh Mall - is being slipped through Baltimore County's development process without any public consideration by the County Council of traffic, the surrounding retail market, the environment or dozens of other potential impacts on the community. More than five years ago, developers first proposed a mixed-use project for the 88-acre property known as Nottingham Ridge off of Philadelphia Road and White Marsh Boulevard. They planned a mix of homes, office space and hotels, plus a modest amount of restaurant and retail that would be aimed at basic services for that community.

Over the years the residents of Washington Hill have brought back to life a neighborhood on the brink of decay to one that is a thriving, attractive place to live. However, in an effort to support and protect our neighborhood's continued progress and growth, we face a stumbling block created by a loophole in the city's zoning law that continues to impede our progress and harm the citizens of Baltimore. I recently endured a grueling six-and-a-half-hour wait to file a protest against the renewal of a non-conforming Class A establishment's liquor license in our neighborhood.

High ticket prices may have kept plenty of would-be concertgoers away from the music this summer, but apparently not everyone is looking for a bargain.Each month, thousands pay premiums that can total 20 percent or more of the ticket's face value when buying by telephone or at outlets other than the venue's box office."Convenience will always be the name of the game," said Ralph J. Beyer, senior vice president with Ticketmaster, which bought out Ticketron and Ticket Center earlier this year and sells tickets for 60 concert and sporting venues in the Baltimore-Washington area.

Too much information? When it comes to the Olympics, NBC hopes not. On top of its seven television outlets, the network that paid $793 million - give or take a bushel of cash - for broadcast rights also has upgraded its Web site to provide nearly instantaneous results, video and interviews. "We started putting it together in October, which was a little later than ideal, and launched it on May 26," said Evan Silverman, executive producer of NBC.com. "The traffic is beginning to build, and we'll go from zero to 60 in August."

The Pulitzer Prizes to two news outlets that cooperated with whistleblower Edward Snowden in the disclosure of widespread National Security Agency surveillance of electronic communications at home and abroad has U.S. officialdom in a dither. With the exiled Mr. Snowden harbored in Russia and widely branded at home as a traitor for leaking the voluminous evidence to reporters working for The Washington Post and the U.S. arm of Britain's Guardian newspaper, the Pulitzer committee came down squarely on the side of freedom of the press.

Your story regarding a proposed outlet mall in White Marsh quoted Allen Robertson as a representative of a community group in Bowleys Quarters that would be affected by the development ( "Developer eyes outlet mall along I-95 in White Marsh," Jan. 24). Bowleys Quarters is located several miles from the proposed site and is at least a 15-minute drive away. I would urge your reporters and editors to take a look at a map before deciding who you solicit comments from. Had you done so you would have easily determined that Mr. Robertson and his group are no more affected by potential traffic from this project than would be the residents of Towson, Essex, Middle River or other areas within that 15-minute zone.
