Hal Stuart was appalled to learn his son was dunked in ice water, beaten with a paddle and driven around blindfolded in a speeding car, all part of a 2012 fraternity initiation at Salisbury University. Hoping to prevent other college students from being hazed, Stuart traveled Tuesday from Montgomery County to Annapolis to testify on a bill that would increase criminal fines for hazing. "You're letting these kids play Russian roulette with other kids' lives," Stuart told members of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee.

Two state legislators and the University System of Maryland chancellor say they support tougher penalties for hazing after a recent report detailed an extreme case at a Salisbury University fraternity chapter. State Sen. Jamie Raskin said he will introduce a bill in this year's legislative session to increase the criminal fine for hazing from $500 to $5,000. He said he was shocked by a recent report from Bloomberg that examined the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter's alleged hazing, including paddle beatings, forced drinking and making pledges stand in trash cans full of ice water.

WASHINGTON -- Washington novelist Barbara Raskin has always looked at the city a little differently. For her, it's never been a place of Great Men/Great Monuments. Perhaps that's because, upon arriving here in the late 1950s, she got to drinking Lyndon Johnson's booze and sleeping in his office.She and her first husband, Marcus Raskin, had taken jobs oCapitol Hill, which, she recalls, "seemed like a campus. I had just come from the University of Chicago and we got an apartment on First Street, right across from the Senate Office Building, in a furnished room with no air-conditioning."

The HyFlyer is flying high again. The tourist balloon that bobbed over downtown for months last year returns to the sky this afternoon for a second season after a snag over insurance rates was resolved. "From this weekend on, we'll basically be open most of the week," said Lee Raskin, who developed the attraction next to the Port Discovery children's museum. Raskin had intended to resume the balloon rides early last month. But he learned that his insurance premium had spiked from $190,000 to $360,000 as part of an industry-wide trend of rising rates, and could not afford it. Only recently was Raskin able to lower that premium by reducing the ride's liability coverage, from $30 million to $10 million.

A special committee on ethics reform set up by Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller will propose legislation that would put the financial disclosure forms of legislators and top state officials online next year and eliminate a requirement that filers be told the names of people who examine those statements. Sen. Jamie Raskin, chairman of the special committee, said the legislation has the bipartisan backing of all members of the panel. Currently, a person who wants to look at disclosure forms — which are public documents — must go to the State Ethics Commission office in Annapolis and fill out a form giving name and address.

Dr. Howard F. Raskin, former chief of the gastroenterology department at Maryland General Hospital, died Sept. 17 at Duke University Hospital during surgery to replace a heart valve. The longtime Owings Mills resident was 87. "Howard was one of the smartest men I ever knew at the University of Maryland Hospital. He was top-drawer and had the manner of a gentleman," said Dr. Jason Max Masters, who retired in 1990 from the hospital, where he had been director of medical technology.

Two Democratic lawmakers in Annapolis want to spur a debate about the influence of money in politics and send a rebuke to tea party leaders by having the General Assembly ratify the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, which required that U.S. senators be elected directly by voters instead of by state legislatures. The amendment became the law of the land in 1913 after three-quarters of the states approved it. Maryland was not one of them. Attacking the amendment has become a cause among some conservatives who believe it transferred too much influence from the states to Washington.

The Senate's first and only openly gay member can point to three reasons why the state should permit same-sex marriages: His partner and their two adopted children. Two lawmakers from opposite ends of the political spectrum want medical marijuana legalized: a conviction fortified by their battles with cancer. And a naturalized citizen-turned-legislator wants to make sure that fellow immigrants may benefit from the same educational opportunities he enjoyed. The hot-button issues before the General Assembly this year already were guaranteed to stir policy debates.

At the time, computers were primarily text-based and users had to remember a series of arcane commands to perform the simplest tasks.

Congratulations to Sarah Bloom Raskin on her appointment to the board of the Federal Reserve ("Md. regulator joins Federal Reserve board," Oct. 1). This is good news for everyone because Ms. Raskin understands that protecting businesses and consumers is not mutually exclusive. As a consumer protection attorney it upsets me when people tell me that consumer protection is detrimental for business. The opposite is true! Dishonest and irresponsible business practices not only harm individuals but businesses and the nation as a whole.
