In forcing the government to shut down, the Republicans are ignoring the fact that the Affordable Care Act has been duly passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama, as prescribed by the Constitution. How a political party can get away with undermining the Constitution boggles the mind. Frederick Knowles, Chestertown

The energy company Dominion said Tuesday that it is exploring developing an alternate evacuation route for some residential neighbors of its proposed Cove Point liquefied natural gas plant, prompting opponents to question anew assertions by the company and federal regulators that the facility poses no significant safety or environmental risks. Karl R. Neddenien, spokesman for the Richmond, Va.-based company, declined to offer details but said Dominion is "looking into" establishing an alternate route for residents living on Cove Point to get away should there be an emergency at the facility.

There are millions of immigrants in our country who aspire to become citizens, but under our broken immigration laws, they have no way to earn citizenship. I personally know some of these hard-working immigrants, and I think it's hurting our country to keep them living in the shadows. That's why I'm calling on Congress to protect the path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States and vote in favor of reform this year. We need real solutions, and rounding up 11 million people or asking them to self-deport is not only inhumane but completely unrealistic.

Sidewalks and paths used by elementary and middle school students across Maryland will be upgraded with $3.4 million in federal grant funding, state officials announced Tuesday. The federal Transportation Alternatives Program funding will be administered by the State Highway Administration and used for 16 projects shortlisted under the state's Safe Routes to School Program, officials said. Grants under the program, which are awarded to local jurisdictions annually, are aimed at improving safety for young students who walk or bike to school.

Weather watchers described Hurricane Sandy's path as unusual as it plowed into the New Jersey coast, and satellite images may show just how strange it looked. The view from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-14 satellite shows the storm churning through the Bahamas and off the Carolinas before it makes a beeline for the Jersey shore. The animation was compiled by the Space Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. GOES-14 acts as a backup to two other main weather satellites that cover the western and eastern sides of the U.S. but because of problems with GOES-13 in the east, GOES-14 was activated for October.

I lived in a close suburb of Detroit from mid-1970 through April of 2001. During that period of time, I watched Detroit go from a city ranked fifth nationally in population to one that is now only a shell of city and is essentially bankrupt. During the 1970s and 1980s, Mayor Coleman Young tried to institute policies that failed miserably and added to the downward spiral. They included hiring policies that dictated to companies how to do business in the city that only resulted in higher costs to all involved ("Good intentions don't create jobs," May 22)

The road to meaningful U.S. immigration reform will no doubt prove rocky and difficult, but at least Washington has taken its first big step on the most critical part of the route - down the so-called "path to citizenship" that now has bipartisan support in the Senate. That's quite a change since 2010 when so many in the GOP invoked the term "amnesty" as a dirty word. That's not to suggest that the findings of an eight-person work group have provided the definitive answer for the nation's dysfunctional immigration policy, but getting four prominent Republican senators to sign off on a path to citizenship is a notable accomplishment.

I've followed the illegal immigration dilemma for decades and would like to see a rational solution to the problem ("An opportune moment for deal on immigration," Nov. 17). Today there are more than 12 million undocumented immigrants in America, and the number continues to grow. But whenever a rational person speaks out with a proposal other than "path to citizenship," they are branded a racist, bigot, xenophobe or worse. Illegal immigration involves human trafficking, misery, poverty, abuse and sometimes death.

Regarding reader Naira Soghbatyan's recent letter to the editor on immigration, it's my opinion that all illegal immigrants should be immediately deported back to where they came from ( "U.S. blocks paths to legal immigration," Nov. 13). These individuals are certainly not needed for the menial jobs such as "cleaning our toilets and doing the dirty jobs Americans won't ever do. " Why aren't such jobs assigned to some of the 47 million hungry U.S. citizens who are in our bread lines?

First baseman Steve Pearce had two hits and an RBI in the Orioles' 4-0 win Monday night against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. His biggest contribution, though, may have been in the sixth inning, when he ran hard to second base and slid toward Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts. He not only broke up a potential inning-ending double play, but Bogaerts threw the ball away, basically allowing two runs to score. “It was a big part of the game,” Pearce said. “That gave us two more insurance runs, so to me, I think that was a big turning point.” Replays showed that Pearce was close enough to the base that he wasn't going to be called for targeting Bogaerts.

The state has awarded more than $2 million in grants to improve bike paths across Maryland, including more than $80,000 to better connect West Baltimore with downtown. The new funding for the state's Bikeways Program was announced Friday by the Maryland Department of Transportation, which administers the program aimed at encouraging biking to work, school and other activities. "Establishing a modern transportation system is more than building roadways, runways and railways," Gov. Martin O'Malley said in a statement.

Since Charles Darwin wrote "The Origin of Species" more than 150 years ago, it's been known that nature's selection creates some species and ends others. But researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County suggest that another actor is responsible for driving wedges in animal populations to create new species - mothers themselves. A study published last month in the journal Ecology Letters suggests that female creatures' sexual preferences may launch an evolutionary process that can lead to the creation of new species.

Time for a brutal assessment regarding the state of immigration reform in America. Extreme partisans on both sides of the aisle - you will not like what you read over the next two minutes. Hopefully, the rest of you will chew on it for a bit. First, the GOP. The upside here is that a majority of Republicans seem to have at least some appreciation for the rule of law. In the context of immigration reform, this instinct plays out in a desire to enforce the law - just like every other civilized country in the world, especially Mexico.

What do you do when the small speedboat you're using to escape illegally from Cuba runs out of fuel partway through the Gulf of Mexico? The vessel rocks uncomfortably atop large waves. You haven't eaten in days. You know what could happen if you're caught. You fear the worst. "The first thought was, 'Wow, I went through so much just to die on the edge,'" Dariel Alvarez, 25, recalled recently in Spanish. "I was scared to come so far and fall short. " Two years later, the Triple-A Norfolk outfielder is one of the Orioles' rising position prospects, combining a steady glove in the outfield with an electrifying plate presence.

- Arguing that he needs more time to fix the nation's sluggish economy, President Barack Obama formally accepted his party's nomination for a second term Thursday while stressing that voters will face a stark choice in November that could affect their lives for decades to come. The Democratic incumbent laid out a series of goals for the economy - most of them familiar - and repeatedly said his policies would take middle-class families down a vastly different path than those of his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.

I support a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million because it's the right thing to do. Our immigration laws are broken, and 11 million Americans need our help to find a solution. I personally know some of these hard-working immigrants, and I think it's hurting our country to keep them living in the shadows. I am a first-generation American myself, and I remember the struggles of my parents. We need Congress to protect the path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States and to vote in favor of reform this year.

For Wye Oak to continue as one of Baltimore's most well-established indie-rock acts, change was necessary. Sometime after the 2011 album "Civilian," singer Jenn Wasner began viewing the guitar - her instrument since she formed the duo in 2006 with drummer Andy Stack - as a liability. Before then, Wye Oak's clever songwriting and dramatic rock sound had propelled the group from the city's DIY music scene to success on a national scale that included song placements on popular TV shows and a live performance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
