An article in the Jan. 13, 1939 edition of The Catonsville Herald and Baltimore Countian reported a grieving community requesting a solution. A meeting attended by more than a hundred residents of the Thirteenth District was held in the Arbutus Community Hall last Friday night, for the purpose of taking measures to prevent more tragedies such as that in which three girls were drowned in an ice-covered pond near Lansdowne last week. A resolution was passed, requesting the Baltimore County Commissioners either to fill in or fence in the ponds and ore holes in the Lansdowne, Relay, Halethorpe and Arbutus sections.

I was calm, at first, when I saw that Facebook had locked me out of my account this week. I figured I would just need to change my password, or answer a security question, and the whole thing would be cleared up in a minute. Besides, how important was my Facebook account anyway? Then I read the screen more closely - Facebook wanted me to upload a copy of a government-issued identification, like a driver's license or passport, to prove that I was, in fact, myself. A panicky feeling clenched my chest as I fumbled in my purse.

Travis Pastrana, the Maryland-born motocross and X Games superstar, has given up his NASCAR dream for now. The 30-year-old Pastrana, from Davidsonville in Anne Arundel County, announced on his Facebook page Monday that he was taking a step back after driving on the Nationwide Series for a little more than two years, writing, "I hate to quit and I hate to fail, but sometimes things work out as they should. “This past season of NASCAR has been an awesome experience. I have made a lot of great friends, had a lot of fun and gained a new appreciation for all aspects of this sport,” Pastrana wrote.

As Ravens reserve safety Anthony Levine sprinted down the field, his eyes locked onto Pittsburgh Steelers return man Emmanuel Sanders. At the time, he didn't know about the positioning of the rest of the Ravens' coverage team or what kind of contact kicker Justin Tucker had made with the ball. All he knew was that Sanders had fielded a bouncing ball 7 yards deep in the end zone and had decided to bring it out. "We were running down, and my mind says, 'I'm going to make this tackle so we would get this stop, and let's go win this game,'" Levine said.

During a dark time in her life, Baltimore artist Meg Page sought solace by a pond and took the time to look into the eyes of nature. "There was this frog, and the specks of gold in his eyes were so spectacular that my heart lifted in the moment," she said. Also in that moment, nature changed from being her comforter to being her muse, and almost 20 years ago, the career of one of the country's great naturalist illustrators was launched. "It's all right here for us, this beauty.

Presidents of the state's historically black colleges and universities said Tuesday that a federal court ruling ordering remedies for persistent segregative policies in Maryland higher education could result in new opportunities and resources for their campuses. "That could mean anything, it could mean Morgan could have a school of public health, it could mean Morgan could have a statewide center of nanotechnology," said Morgan State University President David Wilson, adding that he was still reviewing the opinion to determine its short- and long-term implications.

An article in the Oct. 3, 1963, edition of the Herald Argus and Baltimore Countian recognized the dedication of the newly built community college. In springlike atmosphere, the new Catonsville Community College was officially dedicated on Saturday, Sept. 26, in ceremonies held on the lawn in front of the old Hilton mansion, now the Administration building of the college. Two sidelights of major interest were noted on this occasion. County Executive Spiro T. Agnew made it clear that he favors spreading the county education upward toward the college level rather than downwards to kindergartners.

An article in the Sept. 6, 1913, edition of The Argus eased concerns of a woman's well-being after a false report of boating accident. The report in the Baltimore papers Monday that Miss Annette Chase of Eden Terrace, who is spending the summer at Pine Orchard, near New London, Conn., had a narrow escape from drowning one day last week while canoeing, is without foundation. Miss Chase advises The Argus that her name was confused with that of a Miss Anne Chase of Waterbury, Conn., who, with two friends – Miss Plumb and Mr. Tate , of Waterbury, Conn.- were out in a canoe about a mile off the Montowese House, Indian Neck, when the canoe was overturned by the rough water.

U.S. citizens were advised last week of a "credible and imminent" terrorist threat, but that news didn't make the front page of The Sun and was barely covered on the last page of the front section on Sunday ("Global security alert follows prison breaks," Aug. 4). We did, however, have the opportunity to read not one, but two, very lengthy articles about Jonathan Ogden's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. One article made Page 1 of both the front and sports sections. Do Sun employees communicate with one another?
