I believe that your Jan. 26 issue says it all. That you would put the governor's proposal to raise taxes and stick the county with $10 million of pension money on Page 13 while some argument on the name of a street on Page 1 speaks volumes on what this paper is about. Pete Berlowitz Columbia

The number of young people arrested and brought to the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) is down drastically over the past 10 years. Fewer juveniles are being placed in secure detention facilities, and plans for construction of a new juvenile jail in Baltimore City have been shelved, at least temporarily. Some contend that the reduction in the numbers of youth charged and detained is more about revised policing policies than anything else. We've seen the end of zero tolerance, and "youth connection centers" (YCCs)

I don't know whose idea it was to move the obituaries to the page after the sports coverage and just prior to the classified section. I find this placement quite insulting to the families who have lost their loved ones and want them to be commemorated. Its like y'all are trying to hide the fact that people die in this county. It's a fact of life and you can't get away from it. I would suggest that you select a much more appropriate section of the newspaper, either just before or just after the neighborhood columns.

Some foster children were placed in the care of relatives with a history of alleged abuse or neglect because Maryland's social services agency did not properly monitor local agencies, according to a new audit. State auditors found that 16 children, ranging in age from 2 months to nearly 5 years old, were put in the care of relatives despite "credible evidence of abuse or neglect" by them before or during the placements. The Office of Legislative Audits, which released the report this week, reviewed records from July 2010 to January 2013.

It's not terribly surprising that Maryland's Department of Juvenile Services has too many youths in detention who belong in treatment programs. Having large numbers of youngsters waiting to be placed in appropriate settings is a long-standing problem that has been exacerbated by last year's closing of most long-term beds at the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School without adequate replacements. In addition, the system lacks sufficient and appropriate services for youths with mental or emotional problems.

ONE COULD THINK of a juvenile's stay at the state's Cheltenham Youth Facility as a kid alternative to bail. Ideally, a child who otherwise might not report to court as scheduled is taken to the facility, spends the night, then is taken back to court for his hearing the next day. Ideally, if the judge or court master finds him to be delinquent, he is assigned a placement - a group home, a treatment center - and a suitable program slot is open. He spends that night in his new situation, on his way to his state-promised shot at counseling, rehabilitation and timely return to his home, school and community.

In discussing the placement and treatment of a sofa, I must first admit that this is my least favorite piece of furniture. Because of its imposing and, at times, cumbersome dimensions, a sofa tends to dominate a room and to make subtlety in design difficult to achieve. .Still, sofas do play a useful role in home design. They make it easy to organize a room. Once its placement has been figured out, a sofa acts like the biggest piece in a jigsaw puzzle. The other parts of the picture -- tables, chairs, lamps -- seem to fit together naturally after the major piece has been placed.

THE PROBLEM -- Richard Hillman, a former Annapolis mayor, contacted Watchdog about the placement of a stop sign on School Street near State Circle in Annapolis. He claimed the sign is 50 feet shy of the intersection, before a crosswalk that traverses School Street at an angle. Hillman said drivers must stop twice - at the stop sign and again when they reach the intersection - in order to successfully navigate the road. He said drivers frequently ignore the stop sign because they mistakenly think it controls only the crosswalk.

Everyone talks about the Scholastic Assessment Test, but the best admission ticket to America's most demanding colleges and universities is the less well-known Advanced Placement Examination.Sponsored by the College Board and administered by the Educational Testing Service (the same folks who bring us the SAT), the Advanced Placement Examination, or AP, allows students to earn college credit by proving that they've mastered advanced material in everything from Latin to calculus."If you're not prepared for the AP, you're not prepared for college," Wade Curry, director of the examination, said yesterday.

Three years ago, no student at Milford Mill Academy passed the Advanced Placement calculus exam, which made it clear that unprepared students were being pushed into the high-level class. In an attempt to change that, a dozen high school students who have signed up for AP calculus at the Baltimore County school are honing their math skills at a boot camp this week and next. And they'll get extra help on Saturdays during the school year. Tekiah Hanks, a 16-year-old who might have been picking fruit or sleeping late on Thursday morning, said she has no regrets about the summer hours she has committed to solving math problems.

   Laurence E. Block, a retired Broad Neck High School teacher, responds in this post to the Advanced Placement story that raised questions about an educational system that puts pressure on top students to overload on AP.   By Laurence E. Block I have always been amused when I hear comments that describe AP courses as "college equivalent. "  What colleges are they referring to?  Yale, Duke, and Stanford or Muddy River State?  To suggest that the typical AP course taught by the typical high school teacher is an educational experience equivalent to that offered at our nation's most distinguished colleges is ludicrous.

Although it has been more than 11 years since Memorial Stadium was demolished, much of the concrete that once made up the bygone home of the Orioles, Colts and Ravens continues to host a hotbed of activity nearly 18 miles southeast of its previous location. In 2002, approximately 10,000 cubic yards of rubble from the stadium was deposited over a 6-acre site on the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay, 3 miles west of Tolchester Beach in Kent County. Every year since then, the Perry Hall chapter of the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association has organized the construction and placement of reef balls - hollow, flat-bottomed concrete blobs with holes - on a 1-acre section of the Memorial Stadium reef.

Helen Gao is one of only 12 students in the world to earn a perfect score on the Advanced Placement Macro Economics test this past May. The 18-year-old Princeton University freshman graduated from Dulaney High School in Baltimore County last June and says she is considering majoring in economics. The College Board recently notified Dulaney and Gao's parents of her accomplishment.   "She is very humble young lady," said Phil Bressler, who taught her economics at Dulaney. To earn every point on the test, she had to answer 60 multiple choice questions correctly, as well as earn the maximum scores possible in the free-response section of the exam.
