Goodness knows how many unregistered pets are running around Baltimore. A lot of them, that's for sure. So maybe the citiy could take a cue from Chicago, a city that's come up with a potentially genius little scheme to get folks to register their dogs. It amounts to this: Register your dog, have a chance to win jewels. Yes, jewels. People who make their dogs legal beteween by March 31 have a chance to win the title of Chicago's Dog of Distinction. And the first place prize -- besides the title of course -- is a custom-designed Chicago dog tag with real rubies and topazes created by Sherry Bender of The Goldsmith, Ltd jewelers.

The city of Annapolis has ordered Uber, the company behind a popular ride-sharing application, to stop its service in the capital until it registers as a taxi company. Mayor Mike Pantelides said Monday it's important for Uber to follow the same regulations as the taxicabs that operate in Annapolis. "I'm happy to know there is another means of transportation that will help increase our city's mobility efforts, but I must also be diligent in insisting that they are regulated, just like our taxicabs, in an effort to keep our citizens and visitors safe," Pantelides said in a statement.

State officials say all Maryland recreational anglers must register with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration before fishing in 2010. The requirement is part of a federal initiative to help ensure the long-term sustainability of America's fisheries. Although the survey is focused on saltwater species, some ocean fish travel between salt and fresh waters, so anyone fishing in the Chesapeake Bay, its tributaries and coastal waters must register. Anglers must provide their name, birth date, address, telephone number and the regions they plan to fish.
