McIlvaine, killed Thursday in Iraq, characterized him as a man who longed to please his father, which is exactly what he did when became a Marine in 2001. Sergeant McIlvaine joined the Marines after attending Sherwood High School and graduating from a military school in Virginia. "His father was very patriotic, loved the flag and country," said Patty DeSimone, Sergeant McIlvaine's paternal grandmother, who said her grandson died in combat in Al Anbar province.

Sometimes the friends of Kurt L. Schmoke make trouble for him when they should simply shut up. It happens on Park Heights Avenue, in Northwest Baltimore, and in the city's Housing Department, too, and in an election year it does this mayor damage he doesn't need.In the 4300 block of Park Heights Ave., there once was a movie house called the Avalon Theatre, which closed and became radio station WSID, which later moved and left an empty shell, which has been rotting there for more than a decade.

METAIRIE, La. -- Republican presidential candidate David Duke says he is "proud" of his years as a Ku Klux Klan leader and still believes in "genetic differences" based on race.Duke also said that blacks and other minorities now have the upper hand in America, and that he sees "minority problems as a threat" to the white culture he loves."Obviously the scale is tipped over in their favor, and what happens is the rights of the majority come down," he said in an interview at his suburban New Orleans campaign office.

Jockey Ramon Dominguez had to find an avenue for Crafty Toast yesterday in the $75,000 All Brandy Stakes at Pimlico. The opening appeared just in time and Dominguez adroitly guided the young gray mare through it to overtake Proud Run and prevail by a head at 22-to-1 odds. Crafty Toast, trained at Delaware Park by Bruce Jackson, was supplemented to the race, which attracted most of the top female turf runners in the area. "They sent her to the farm from New York a couple of months ago with the intention of breeding her, but she started to act so fresh and look so good, they kept her training," Jackson said of Bohemia Stable.

The frenzy surrounding the nomination of Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to the U.S. Supreme Court paid a short visit to a well-trimmed golf course suburb off Route 40 in Ellicott City yesterday, where the nominee's parents and two sisters crowded around an arsenal of microphones to say how proud they all are.

On a dreary afternoon along North Point Road, the rain made tiny bomb bursts on the hood of Jim Rhoda's truck while he waited for his son outside a car dealership. Like most Americans, he was struggling to define the catastrophic events that have shaken the nation since the terrorist attacks Sept. 11. But closer to his heart, the son he now waited for - bright, handsome, a new father - is a combat Marine, and destiny has summoned him to go into harm's way as war is on the wind. Just like Jim Rhoda himself, when he was young and stood straight as an arrow and looked like a kid on a Marine Corps recruiting poster.

Editorial from The Aegis | August 19, 2014
The Cal Ripken World Series has been a highlight of summertime in Harford County for a dozen years. People in the community step up and provide housing for players, some of whom travel from as far away as is possible to get and still be on earth. As a result of this tradition, there always are some local people cheering extra hard for whatever teams are playing. It's a wonderful expression of hope for the future insofar as it brings people from many cultures together to share good times and good sports.

Ray Rice is a true role model ("NFL misses its chance to send a message," July 25). An athlete, actor or other public figure is not a role model simply because they are a public figure. They become role models only when they do something worthy of attention and emulation. Sure, Mr. Rice messed up. But he also demonstrated in full public view the absolute correct way to behave when you do mess up. And how many of us haven't messed up one way or the other? Mr. Rice has taken full responsibility for his actions, with no excuses, justifications or blaming of others.

Comment below if I've left anything out.

Your editorial "Kamenetz the kingmaker" (May 22) was misguided conjecture based on a four-month-old campaign finance report. As The Sun recently reported, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz transferred the vast majority of the funds in the A Better Baltimore County slate to another campaign in January - well before my campaign was ever listed as an affiliate. Your editorial has mislead voters into believing that my campaign is some sort of surrogate for Mr. Kamenetz. I take issue with this implication, as I have been working extremely hard over the last two years to raise money in the form of campaign contributions from family, friends, colleagues, small business owners and, yes, some developers.

Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman launched an "Anne Arundel County Proud" campaign Monday as part of her second State of the County address to business groups. During a 50-minute speech at a Linthicum hotel, Neuman highlighted people in the county who have made a difference for others, including a firefighter who rescued a child from a well and a police officer who nabbed a man who had allegedly used Craigslist to line up victims. She called them up to the stage and then removed her jacket to reveal an "Anne Arundel County Proud" T-shirt.

Thank you for that wonderful editorial about our University of Maryland women's basketball treasure, Alyssa Thomas and the team ( "Remember her name," April 1). As an alumnus and season ticket holder, I have always wondered at the lack of coverage (one never sees the weekly rankings of the women's team, despite our local team usually ranked in the top 10) and the lack of fan support. Season tickets are a bargain and the quality of play is top notch. If you were not at Comcast Center you missed a chance to watch the Terps almost beat Notre Dame and Connecticut this season.

I thought, I'll design something that works," said Arman, a 12-year-old seventh-grader who created the software program that operated a robot for the robotics club at Ridgely Middle School. "I started building things when I was a kid — a chest, a wagon. I like designing and building," said Cindy Jia, 11, a sixth-grader who helped to design and build the robot. "Before joining the robotics club, I designed one robot from parts I ordered online," said seventh-grader Noah Zipin, 13, and a team leader.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear someone say how lucky we are to have such a fine man as Barack Obama as our president, and that he gave an inspiring talk to us in the State of the Union ("Obama focuses on the economy," Jan. 29)? Instead, the pundits delight in analyzing and criticizing his speech, forgetting to remind us that he is an idealistic, intelligent and good man - a credit to the America he represents. Forget whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, rejoice in the quality of our leadership and what he demonstrates about America to the entire world.
