Bernstein by running to become the city's top prosecutor. In announcing her run outside the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse, Mosby spoke of violence in Baltimore that has grown out of control.

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman is seeking a do-over on his county's stormwater fees. After an earlier plan that involved calculating fees for each of tens of thousands of properties proved too difficult, Ulman is proposing a simpler set of fees. The proposal would have homeowners paying $15, $45 or $90 per year to pay for cleaning up polluted stormwater runoff that harms rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. If passed, the new fee plan would raise $13 million per year for stormwater pollution projects.

Americans' hearts going out to the victims of the marathon bombing in Boston, which means, of course, con artists will have to take advantage of that. The Federal Trade Commission is warning people to be leery of charity solicitations from telemarketers. The agency advises people to: -- Ask for the charity's name if the telemarketer doesn't provide it immediately. (This alone should be a warning sign if the solicitor isn't forthcoming) -- Find out what percentage of your gift will go to the cause.

Opponents of Maryland's tough new gun-control law said Wednesday that they will not seek to petition it to referendum and instead will back a lawsuit planned by the National Rifle Association. "This is a constitutional right that should not go to the citizens to vote on," said Republican Del.

Flanked by representatives of the NRA, Maryland-based gun-rights groups, and other Republican lawmakers, Parrott announced the plans to a crowd of 70 at a Jessup fundraising event for mdpetitions.com.
