Carroll Hospital Center is joining Anne Arundel Medical Center and other health systems, businesses and employers who won't hire people who smoke cigarettes or use other nicotine products. Carroll announced the policy Thursday, and it expands on a policy that bans use of tobacco products on campus. The expanded ban is expected to begin in January. Nicotine causes a wide range of health problems and is the leading cause of preventable death, hospital officials said, and is not part of the healthy lifestyle they are trying to promote.

The war of words in the race for governor escalated Thursday as Republican Larry Hogan called his Democratic rival a liar and asked him to take down a series of "slanderous" advertisements. "I've been around politics for a long time. I know it's a rough and tumble business," Hogan told reporters at his Annapolis headquarters. "This is the most deceitful, most dishonest campaign that I have ever witnessed in my entire life. " Hogan said Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's television spots mischaracterize his positions on abortion, gun control, tuition rates, taxes and pre-kindergarten.

Too many yellow ribbons hung.So even the 40-year-old Army Reserve doctor was not surprised when she was convicted last week of desertion. It was not a forgiving time in which to refuse to go to war, or to brand the whole thing as immoral.On Friday, a military jury sentenced Dr. Huet-Vaughn to 2 1/2 years in prison.

Thank you for the commentary regarding the challenge facing women in construction ( "Construction: a boy's club," July 14). I know about it from experience. From 2007 to mid-2008, I received scholarships and worker retraining at a technical school for building construction. Out of 100 students, I was one of four who achieved an associate of applied science degree during that time. I then received direct entry into the apprentice 3.5-year program to become a union carpenter. I was lucky to receive six months of work each year.

Goucher's season could have ended literally and metaphorically on April 14 when sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel died of injuries he suffered during a hit-and-run the day before. But once he had the backing of the Gabriel family, coach Brian Kelly knew the campaign would go on. What he was uncertain of was whether the same could be said about the team. “Immediately following with the Catholic game [on April 17], we were purely playing off of emotion and energy,” he recalled.

First in a series of profiles of candidates for governor Republican Larry Hogan isn't pledging to turn deep-blue Maryland red if he's elected governor. He doesn't even hold out much hope for purple. He just thinks that if he can win his party's primary, he can beat the Democratic nominee and fundamentally change the way the state does business. Since becoming the last Republican to jump into the 2014 governor's race in January, he has surged past his three rivals in both fundraising and the polls.

In bold black letters across the back of Calloway Lee's Catonsville High wrestling hoodie are two words: Bone Crusher. Take a quick glance at the senior heavyweight wrestler's 5-foot-9, 220-pound frame and couple that with his accolades as the captain and MVP of the Comets' football and wrestling teams, and the nickname is warranted. But ask those around Lee, and they have different words for him. Once that hoodie comes off, the real Calloway Lee - one they say always puts others before himself - takes to the field or mat. "I think he's probably one of the most caring athletes I've been around," Catonsville football coach Rich Hambor said of Lee, who plays defensive line and running back.

Entitled "McFadden's Dirty Dozen," the list of 12 criticisms included the assertion that McFadden, who walks with a cane, isn't "healthy enough" to serve in the General Assembly.
