When a police sergeant approached a black Jeep Cherokee parked on the side of Piney Orchard Parkway in Anne Arundel County, its hazard lights blinking, she thought it would be a routine check on a stranded motorist. But the encounter was the first in a series of events that ended with the motorist's death. Police said that when the sergeant approached, 41-year-old Patrick Raphael Toney, an academic adviser at Bowie State University, got out of the vehicle, threw items onto the ground and spat.

The Anne Arundel County Council can begin the process of replacing Councilman Daryl D. Jones next week when he begins serving a five-month federal prison sentence, a judge ruled Wednesday. Judge Raymond G. Thieme Jr., a retired Court of Special Appeals judge, ruled against a request by Jones' attorney for a temporary restraining order to prevent the council from selecting a replacement. Earlier this month, another judge threw out a similar request, calling it premature because Jones had not suffered harm.

The college won a temporary restraining order in U.S. District Court on Wednesday, protecting its accreditation until Sept. 12. But the college will likely have to return to court next week to seek a preliminary injunction that would extend the protection for an undetermined amount of time.

The Sun editorializes ("Best of Enemies" April 30) that the Fatah-Hamas decision to work together may doom peace-keeping efforts undertaken by the U.S. But the matter of recently renewed Jerusalem settlements by Israel and the U.S. response must not be overlooked. Israel, to the embarrassment of President Obama, has initiated new settlement activity even in Jerusalem. This is an embarrassment to our president because Fatah had agreed to negotiate a "final" peace on condition that there be no new settlement activity, including in Jerusalem.

WASHINGTON — Maryland benefited far more than most states from the surge of federal stimulus spending since early 2009. Now it could suffer disproportionately as a new Republican majority in Congress tries to make good on its pledge to shrink the size of government — an effort that could put renewed pressure on cash-strapped state and local governments, and threaten projects that depend on federal assistance. "No question about it," Democratic Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin said in an interview.

Howard County Board of Education member Allen Dyer filed a lawsuit last week against the board attempting to prevent it and its employees from deleting electronic messages and other documents, but his request for a temporary restraining order was denied. Dyer requested a restraining order Tuesday as well as a temporary and/or permanent injunction in Howard County Circuit Court, insisting that the board cease destroying documents — particularly any e-mail from board members and employees — until it has a written policy outlining how such documents should be handled.

A 32-year-old man convicted of trying to kill a police officer's husband had to be restrained by six officers during a hearing Monday sentencing him to life in prison plus 20 years, the Baltimore state's attorney's office said Thursday. Fernando Horton of the 400 block of Random Road shouted and struggled throughout the sentencing as victims spoke. A jury convicted him in January of attempted murder for shooting Asa Thomas, who's married to a Baltimore officer. Thomas had been visiting a family friend when he was shot through his driver's-side window, according to prosecutors, who said they believe the shooting was a "case of mistaken identity."

I always thought it would be fun to live in one of those cities where new products are tested. It must be neat to offer opinions about a thing still in development, knowing that someday you might look on, say, an automatic fabric softener dispenser with personal pride - "that fill line, my idea." And whenever I go to a movie preview, I dutifully fill out a little survey card. (I always write, "More dancing!") Anyway, sitting in judgment of someone else's concept is a large part of the fun of going to Punk's Backyard Grill, the lone locally owned restaurant among a dozen or so national chains that ring the Westfield Annapolis Mall.
