President Barack Obama has come under fire from Hispanic groups who say he hasn't done enough to enact comprehensive immigration reform and that his administration has deported record numbers of undocumented immigrants. Neither charge is wholly justified: Mr. Obama's pleas to House Republican leaders to take up an immigration bill passed by the Senate last year have been met with stony indifference, and though the total number of deportations on his watch has been higher than under previous presidents, they have been declining rapidly in recent years.

The editors of many local Patch websites were among a large number of employees reportedly laid off by the news company Wednesday, under a national "restructuring" by its new owner. Investment holding company Hale Global agreed to assume majority ownership of Patch from AOL earlier this month. The exact toll among Maryland's sites remained unclear, but several local editors confirmed — some on the condition of anonymity — that they had been let go. Some employees still were waiting Wednesday to see what the conditions of their severance would be, and if it would include a non-disclosure clause.

The last two weeks have been tough for President Barack Obama. But for the American people, and our freedoms, it has been much worse. We found that our government has been targeting conservative groups for significant scrutiny in applications for IRS tax-exempt status. We also found that the Justice Department had seized phone records of the Associated Press without providing required notice. This was after the AP had delayed, at the government's request, releasing a story until the embargo had passed.

Navy linebacker Brye French had never met Brendan Looney, only hearing stories about the former academy lacrosse star and his two brothers from longtime coach Richie Meade. Then one day during French's sophomore year, Meade told his team that the eldest Looney brother had died in Iraq. French, who had come to Navy to play both lacrosse and football, began to understand the reasons he was in Annapolis when he heard about Looney's death in a helicopter crash. It was further clarified for French when the lacrosse team attended the funeral of Navy SEAL from Silver Spring.

Highway crews are scheduled to complete work Monday night on a temporary patch of eastbound U.S. 50 that was buckled by 11 days of intense heat. A 50-foot-long crack squiggled across three left lanes near U.S. 301 in Prince George's County on Sunday afternoon, forcing officials to shut down all but the right lane and the shoulder to motorists. The break lifted one slab of concrete and reduced another piece to rubble. "It was less dramatic than it sounds, but clearly, we had to take traffic off of it," said David Buck, spokesman for the State Highway Administration.

Lazy eye is often mistaken for eyes that cross or wander, but some patients with the disorder don't show these symptoms. Dr. Lisa Abrams, a pediatric ophthalmologist at Katzen Eye Group, talks about how lazy eye is diagnosed, who gets it and how it is treated. What is lazy eye? "Lazy eye," amblyopia, is often misinterpreted as an eye that crosses or wanders. These conditions can be associated with "lazy eye," but the real meaning is an eye that does not see as well as it should.

At the beginning of the year, the Port of Baltimore was on a roll. At Seagirt Marine Terminal, the ribbon was cut on a 50-foot-deep berth financed by a $1.3 billion public-private partnership between the port and Ports America Chesapeake. The investment positioned Baltimore to be a major East Coast port of call for the larger ships expected in 2014 when the Panama Canal's expansion is completed. The port was doing record business: 9.55 million tons of cargo over the past fiscal year and a surge in the cruise business, too. The biggest concern was about how the port would find room to expand - and even that challenge looked like it would soon be met at Coke Point, the former iron ore pier at Sparrows Point, with plans to convert it into an automobile terminal and replace some of the 2,000 jobs lost when the steelmaking facility went out of business last year.

A new urban park is bringing a patch of green to a once-blighted corner of Broadway East, a project organizers hope can be a model for improving the quality of life and reducing pollution in other distressed Baltimore neighborhoods. Trees are to be planted today at the corner of Gay and Federal streets, on a third of an acre where until a few years ago 18 mostly dilapidated rowhouses had stood. Community and nonprofit leaders, elected officials and others who live, worship and work in the area are expected to be on hand to help with landscaping the New Broadway East Community Park.

No one player makes - or breaks - a team. That is especially true for No. 11 Maryland, where the concept of team is emphasized in nearly every comment from the players and coach John Tillman. John Haus is one of the Terps who fully endorses that model. But if anyone is looking to cast blame for the team's recent offensive woes, the senior midfielder is prepared to absorb the criticism. “I think all over, we've been low in production. As a senior, I take some of that on my shoulders,” he said Tuesday.

WE'VE ALL encountered those little extra dips and bumps in the road, where the new black asphalt tells the story of recent utility work in the road and a hasty patch-up. It's those dips and bumps that help keep car mechanics in the money. I recently heard from Marian Hein about bad patch jobs. "One of my pet peeves is when contractors must dig up a public road to hook up to utilities and fill the trench back up only 90 percent less," Hein said. "Then the driving public has to put on the brakes to avoid putting their cars out of alignment."

Orioles reliever Pedro Strop said he's never lost his confidence even through some rough outings in the first three weeks of the season. And the Orioles' confidence in Strop to preserve a one-run lead in the eighth inning of their 4-3 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday night was rewarded in turn. “That was huge because that was the game right there,” Strop said afterward. “I've been struggling lately and that's good to have some confidence back, and I feel even better because I gave my team the opportunity to win. Who knows?
