As a subscriber, I always enjoy your articles about saving energy, and I have a few comments about the article "Programs help Marylanders save on electric bills," June 25. First of all, I agree with the PSC to not make me pay for the smart meter just to tell me how much I use and for them to eliminate meter readers. If they want to automate my bill then they should pay for the new meters. I am very aware and efficient when it comes to giving BGE any more money than I have to. I have done everything possible to cut that amount down.

Armed robbers grabbed a man's electronic reader in Severn and fired a shot into the ground when he tried to take it back, then struck him with their car as they sped off, Anne Arundel County police said. Police said the man told them around 4 p.m. Sunday that he was reading on his Kindle when two men approached him from behind. One demanded the reader, shoved him to the ground and took the reader, and the second man pointed a gun at him when he tried to take it back, and fired into the ground, police said.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. There have been times when D.J. Reader thought he might be close to making a college decision, but it seems the highly sought lineman from Greensboro, N.C., is going to go the distance. “I think it's probably going to go until Signing Day,” said Reader, a 6-foot-4, 320-pound senior at Grimsley High.

Letter to The Aegis | March 7, 2013
Editor: In The Aegis Feb. 27, you did an excellent job showcasing Harford County Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as well as the National Chapter. The color used highlighted that special touch to the article. Congratulations on reaching a perfect balance with the lighting on our dark skin! There was a time when photos taken of dark skinned individuals were unrecognizable due to no or very little flash used and no compensation made when the photos were printed in the newspaper.

I kept reading the Howard County Times' review of Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's production of "Taming of the Shrew" waiting for the punch line. Just like the production, which I saw with my family on June 23, I waited patiently through all the overacting and slapstick for the moment when they would tell us how silly Shakespeare's morality play about the inferiority of women was. It never happened. Given Chesapeake's modern and funny interpretations of Shakespeare, I looked forward to bringing my daughters to this play.

Your letters are the lifeblood of this column. It's time for the readers of this column to have the last word ."Your column about those 'accommodating' people who keep the rest of us hopping, trying to guess what they really want from us, cracked me up because I saw my submissive, indecisive, oh-so-accommodating, oh-so-powerful mother in every sentence," wrote a Dallas wife and mother."

It's time for equal time -- time for the readers of this column to have the last word.From Louisville, Ky., a letter came this month that began:"Your recent article about leaving children home alone disturbed me a great deal."Isn't it bad enough that so many children are home alone all summer? Isn't it bad enough that so many children are home alone at night because their parents have business meetings, dinners, bridge games, bowling or whatever?"Now you come along and encourage parents to trust their instincts in determining their child's ability to remain home alone for hours every day. Don't we have enough problems with children today without encouraging more parents to leave their children alone?

It's time for equal time -- time for readers of this column to have the last word -- and this month you wrote to me about the ways our childhoods can affect our adult relationships, the trials of being "imperfect" working parents, sacrificing one's personal life for a career, and perfectionism.After a column about the ways our childhoods can affect our interactions with people in our workplaces, a 46-year-old marketing specialist wrote: "I read your article just after pitching what can only be described as a 6-year-old's temper tantrum."

There is no substitute for a child's first experiences with that concrete object called a book - smelling the aroma of the pages, rubbing fingers along the binding, feeling the smoothness of glossy paper. Nor is there a substitute for the positive feelings transmitted to a child by a reader who cares and who invests books with personal value.When you read to your child, you give these very real and concrete gifts that encourage reading:* Warm feelings aroused by the closeness between you, the reader, and your child, the listener.

It's time for the readers of this column to have the last word, and this month many of your letters were about pesky co-workers, bumpy homecomings and stressed-out bosses.After a column about resolutions for people who work together, a reader in New Orleans wrote, "Thanks for the resolution about telling co-workers how you feel when your feelings are hurt."I had been starting all my sentences [to myself and others] with 'That so-and-so did this,' and 'That . . . did that,' instead of saying to her, 'This is how I feel . . .'"I put a copy of your article on this co-worker's desk, circled what you had written, and wrote beside it, 'My feelings are hurt.
