Without being specific about which area of her team needed fixing the most after last year's 5-11 record, Notre Dame Prep coaches Mary Bartel and Lisa Costello said that, at least for now, they have solved the problem. On Friday in Brooklandville, the No. 6 Blazers (6-2, 6-1 league) continued to show how well they have embraced their makeover by topping No. 4 St. Paul's, 11-8, to grab sole possession of second place in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference behind No. 1 and undefeated McDonogh.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration has turned over more than 10,000 pages of documents to a City Council committee conducting a wide-ranging investigation into Baltimore's speed camera program. Councilman James B. Kraft, chairman of the committee, said he's received 10,000 to 12,000 pages of documents. He believes the mayor may turn over far more, he said. In February, Kraft delivered a letter to Rawlings-Blake seeking 31 batches of documents involving nearly all aspects of the once-lucrative cameras, which have been offline since last spring.

His letter seeks documents pertaining to former speed camera contractors Xerox State & Local Solution and Brekford Corp., as well as consultants URS Corp.

Host Ben Franklin-Masonville Cove (11-4) used a trio of 12-point scorers and switching defenses to keep No. 15 Dunbar (8-8) off balance in the second half for a 62-56 win Tuesday. The Poets, led by Keshawn Hampton with a game-high 16 points, brought the pressure in the first half and built a 33-26 halftime lead. But in the second half, Ben Franklin settled down and kept switching zone defenses every two possessions, which frustrated Dunbar and led to turnovers and the lead. Tre Henriques, Terry Page and Robert Goodwin each scored 12 points for the Bayhawks in the upset.

I was amazed by The Sun's story on Sunday about the wrong phone number on the state's health care website ( "Latest glitch on health exchange," Jan. 19). Not that mistakes on websites don't occur - we're all human - but that this one has yet to be fixed, many days after it was reported. I manage the websites of several non-profits and take care of ordinary mistakes like that in 10 minutes. Even in the federal government, where I used to develop web content, typos on web pages were routinely fixed within a day. Is nobody minding the store at the Maryland health exchange?

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.
