Editor: "Thank you!" This is my only way of reaching out to the gentleman that recovered my handbag from the roadway on Jan. 10, 2014. I was careless and left the purse on the top of the trunk of my car. As I left home, and turned south onto Route 924, apparently the handbag fell off. Three stops and 35 minutes later, I realized what had happened. This kind, caring, honest and thoughtful person had delivered my bag (intact) to my neighbor. He did not leave his name or any information that would enable me to thank him in person, give him a reward, treat him to dinner or even bake him a cake.

Shopper loses her purse and finds honesty in grocery store Today I lost my purse at Save A Lot Foods in Arbutus. I didn't realize it for almost three hours and was in a panic mode when I did. I went back to the store and asked the cashier if anyone had turned in my purse and they had. The manager had locked it in the safe. I want to take this time to thank the person, who found my purse. The manager said no name was left but I want to let him/her know how much I appreciate it. This action confirms my faith that there are still many good people around.

Before he even had presented the Founders Cup to the golf public, LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan noted he already had received "at least 50" e-mails from players with suggestions on how to improve the novel event. Here's one more. Let the players keep half their winnings. The other 50 percent of the purse still would be earmarked for LPGA/USGA Girls Golf developmental program. Players would be free to donate whatever additional slice of their paycheck to the cause. Win-win.

I got a new purse for Mother's Day, but I am reserving judgment. I like the purse, don't get me wrong. I actually lobbied for it. But I've been burned before, so you won't hear me gushing about this purse until … well, until I know it is The One. You'd have better luck buying me a new husband for Mother's Day. Or a new house. There's a greater chance I'd like either one of those than there is that I will like this purse. That's how tough the purse thing is. You might think it is bras.

On a March day in 1980, a high school teacher in New Jerse caught two girls smoking in a lavatory. She marched them off to the principal's office; and thereby hangs a tale that is worth reviewing as the school year begins.What are the constitutional rights of high school students? We know from Supreme Court opinions that their right to freedom of the press is limited; school authorities may control the content of a student newspaper. Their right to freedom of expression is broader; students may wear black armbands to protest a war.Students have a First Amendment right to pray voluntarily in school.

On Oct. 23, a purse was the ticket to a good time at Power of the Purse, an event hosted in Towson by the Baltimore County Commission for Women 's and the nonprofit Samaritan Women. The night's goal was to raise awareness — and ultimately money through the resale of donated purses — to fight human trafficking, an issue that commission members say has shown increasing concern in Baltimore County, and Maryland overall. Outside 7 West Bistro Grille, people were asked to drop off new or gently used purses.

I just received my complimentary approved clear plastic bag from the Ravens designed to carry my ID, glasses, cellphone and lipstick into M&T Bank Stadium ("Fans are left holding the bag," Aug. 14). This decidedly unstylish bag would not be my choice to carry my necessary items. I can only imagine that the National Football League policy that predicated this design was made by a man. No woman I know would want to carry her highly personal items in a bag for all to see. No woman wants to carry a zip-lock bag as a purse.

The Nottingham woman had ducked into a bathroom at the White Marsh Sears when she heard a voice from the adjoining stall: Her neighbor had found the toilet-paper dispenser empty. Could she pass some under the divider? As she gathered a bunch, authorities said, someone reached over the stall's door and took cash and credit cards from the purse she had hung there. It wasn't until she stopped at other stores that she realized her cards were missing. She would later find that the thieves had bought thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise with the cards.
