A 73-year-old woman died in Edgewater Monday after a parked car rolled down a hill and crushed her underneath, Anne Arundel County police said. Lee Sheila Mahoney was walking near the 1700 block of Chesapeake Drive in the afternoon when a parked 2010 Ford Mustang began to drift down the hill, striking her from behind and pinning her underneath. The 23-year-old owner of the car saw his car rolling down the hill, went to the car and started it, backing up without realizing the woman was trapped underneath, police said.

DEAR Bob Wilson:You probably were surprised to receive my phone call this afternoon and to learn of my desperate desire to obtain a job as a reporter with the Daily Boomerang in Laramie. (As a matter of fact, I surprised myself by calling you.) But I want you to know that I'm glad that we had our little chat because, quite frankly, until I talked to you and learned that a position might be opening in three or four years, I'd been having a truly terrible day in Baltimore.I needed to get to the post office.

Anne Arundel police say there appears to be no connection between a carjacking and two failed attempts to rob drivers of their vehicles last week in Glen Burnie - but officials warn residents to take care while the investigation continues. "There's nothing that ... indicates that these three are linked," police spokesman Sgt. Shawn Urbas said Monday. "But," he added, "any time you have a certain type of crime in a [single] locality, there is a chance that they could be connected." All three incidents took place on or along major roads in the North County community between Nov. 23 and Nov. 26. Both of the failed carjackings involved a group of attackers who were armed with a handgun.

A terrible thing happened in Waverly this month. An innocent precious little girl was taken from us due to violence ( "Funeral today for 3-year-old Baltimore girl killed by gunfire," Aug. 8). The community with politicians at their side are uniting and taking a stand to the senseless violence. But will it work? Thirty-nine years ago, an elderly women, Millie Alcarese, who lived in the same neighborhood, was walking up to Greenmount Avenue when she was jumped and robbed (stealing her pocketbook)

It's 8:30 in the morning, and the Intrepid One is cruising on St. Paul Street. All four lanes are thick with traffic, but we've got synchronized green traffic lights on our side. Life is good, and we're running on time when -- suddenly -- a backup sprouts in the left lane. It stretches from Eager Street to Chase Street.And you know what it is?A parked car, with its emergency lights flashing. We're stuck behind it, blowing our horns (that's the proper protocol, right?) and trying to wedge into the next lane of traffic.

CHICAGO -- Owner of Car 54, where are you?I feel a sense of frustration, staking out a parked car that isn't running in the bowels of Chicago Stadium. A parked car belonging to a superstar who is doing everything but talking about what everybody else is talking about -- himself.That would be Michael Jordan, of course. He goes out to win a game for the Bulls yesterday and almost scores the speed limit. Jordan scores 54 points against the Knicks, which is why I'm calling it Car 54. I can't call it my own, because the gray Mercedes 600 SEL with tinted windows is a bit out of my price range.
