A man in Edgewater stole a FedEx package off of a doorstep on Tuesday and tried to stab a teenager who chased him down, Anne Arundel County police said. The man, who was tall and wearing a black face mask, grabbed the package off of the steps of a home in the 900 block of Holly Avenue at around 4 p.m., police said. A 15-year-old boy living in the house chased the man and tackled him, and the man tried to cut the boy with a knife. The man missed, only cutting the boy's pants, and ran off after having dropped the package, police said.

Sometimes, the confluence of seemingly unrelated events can squeeze clarity out of coincidence. Take the news Wednesday that the Orioles' top pick from the 2013 draft, Low-A Delmarva right-hander Hunter Harvey, has been shelved for the remainder of the minor league season with an arm injury, which arrived at about the same time speculation surfaced on Twitter that the Orioles were close to a deal for Boston Red Sox ace Jon Lester. Maybe there was some fire under that smoke, and maybe there wasn't.

Recently, I learned the U.S. is sending our tuna, salmon and chicken to China to be packaged. The article I read also noted that China has the filthiest facilities ever, and I have been eating wild-caught salmon fillets for years thinking I was doing such healthy eating. I just took the package from the freezer and yep, it was a product of China. This is the last packaged fish I will buy from Aldi. Monday, I went in Giant to get a few things for my sister. She's 98 and very selective about her purchases.

Next week, the Senate Appropriations Committee will decide whether to allow special interests - rather than science - to determine which foods can be provided through the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). WIC, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, currently serves more than half of all infants born in the United States and more than 146,000 women and children here in Maryland. The WIC food package provides nutrition and breastfeeding support to low-income and nutritionally vulnerable pregnant and breastfeeding moms and children up to five years of age. The effect of nutritional deficiencies on young children can be devastating and enduring.

It is part of a five-bill package pushed by Del. Maggie McIntosh, a Baltimore Democrat, which aims to look for ways to reduce the city's high property tax rate, which is at least double that of surrounding counties.

Four-year-old Kate Grossman held out the white paper bag, one of the 500 she and her two siblings were handing out to the needy at Our Daily Bread's downtown employment center on Christmas Day. But the woman approaching smiled and shook her head. "I just want a hug," she said. Without hesitation, all three Grossmans rushed forward for a group embrace that brought the woman to tears. The Grossmans were among the 600 or so who took part in the ninth annual Mitzvah Day, preparing gifts at the Jewish Community Center in Pikesville and taking them to charities around the city.
