I live in the Canton neighborhood in Baltimore, just a few blocks away from where the 26-year-old woman was brutally attacked and raped and nearly killed ("Va. crimes lead back to Baltimore," Dec. 23). I heard this horrifying story and could hardly imagine such evil taking place on that lovely snowy Saturday. I was very relieved to hear the rape suspect was arrested, but I could not help but be angered that he ever was allowed to come to Baltimore in the first place. I am not going to go into detail about what should have happened; the good news is he was caught and hopefully will never see the light of day. I want to fervently request that the people of Kilmarnock, Va., give the $10,000 reward to the rape "survivor" in Baltimore since she did in fact find the suspect for them.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been shuffling his pitching staff all season. If he can find a way to get a starter some rest or bring an extra pitcher into the bullpen for a day or two, he'll do it. The obvious result is that his relievers, for the most part, have maintained their health while pitching effectively. Heading into Saturday's game against the New York Yankees, Orioles relievers had the fourth-best ERA in the American League and sixth-most innings pitched. Only closer Zach Britton was among the league's top 10 in appearances, with 66. Darren O'Day was tied for 25th, with 62, and neither pitched in Saturday's 3-2 loss.

As residents of Baltimore County, we were asked several years ago to participate in the recycling program. We were asked to get separate trash cans and mark them to indicate recycling. The glass and papers are sorted, and I assume the county profits in some way, but most important, these items do not find there way into the landfill. On recycling pickup day, however, I have noticed most of my neighbors do not participate. Maybe the county should reward those who do in the form of a property tax break.

Providing incentives to our best teachers to instruct our students with the greatest needs will improve these children's education. Rewarding teachers for their exceptional efforts in improving outcomes for these students will help keep them in the classroom ( "Time to talk tenure," Aug. 24). We already do that in Maryland. A teacher with the highest performance evaluation rating for classroom work can be assisted in the repayment of academic debt with a Nancy Grasmick Teacher Award.

The idea of "debt relief" ("Time to forgive us our debt?" Oct. 5) is disheartening and disturbing. Ideas to assist people who lost their jobs to keep their homes are compassionate and have merit. Rewarding reckless, spendthrift spending habits is disgusting to anyone who sacrificed, scrimped and saved to buy a house within their means, went to a college they could afford, or (God forbid) paid cash for their needs!

Ronald Reagan famously asked Americans, "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" in a 1980 debate with then-President Jimmy Carter. They weren't, and Reagan, a Republican, went on to win the 1980 election in a landslide. Baltimore City residents are not better off than they were two years ago, or four years ago or even 10 years ago. In the last decade, tens of thousands of people have left, along with their jobs, shrinking the tax base. And poverty is at 26 percent, up 20 percent from a year earlier.

Has any creator in the realm of musical theater ever considered each syllable of text, each note and harmonic turn as deeply as Stephen Sondheim? His intense focus, his drive to find and express inner truths about the complexities of life, art and heart yielded one of Sondheim's most personal works, "Sunday in the Park with George," which has received a rewarding revival by Signature Theatre to launch the company's 25th anniversary season. I don't think it's stretching a point to see an autobiographical undercurrent to this 1984 show, which came along just a few years after the ill-fated "Merrily We Roll Along," perhaps Sondheim's most celebrated failure.

What a message these so-called lawmakers are sending to government workers by authorizing billions of dollars more to the Department of Veterans Affairs ( "Veterans vent about poor VA medical care," July 29). The spending suggests it's OK to falsify government records and steal taxpayers' dollars in the form of bonuses because we will give you more money and, by the way, you may be fired or demoted but not prosecuted.

Anne Arundel Community College's Opera AACC concludes its five-performance run of Charles Bizet's "Carmen" at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at Robert Kauffman Theater in the Pascal Center for Performing Arts. One of the world's most popular operas, "Carmen" got a twist in this production with dance movement integrated in a tale "told through a feminist lens," according to the program notes. It's an approach that may not reflect everyone's conception of how Bizet's masterwork should be presented, but the production was indeed worthwhile.

Jeff Lewatowski trudged upstream, the chilly, knee-deep Gunpowder River flowing around his waterproof overalls. Following the inside curve of a bend, he picked a likely looking spot and settled in, much like the trout he planned to catch. "They want to take advantage of the bugs," said Lewatowski, 39, who lives in Havre de Grace and guides fishing trips around the state. "They get very excitable the more bugs there are on the water. … They compete in a spot in the creek to sit. " May through June is sulphur mayfly season, with thousands of mayfly nymphs swimming up from sunken logs and rocks to molt and flutter away for their brief adult lives.

In regard to Dan Rodricks ' recent column on the minimum wage and tipped workers ( "Questioning wage law built on the kindness of strangers," April 18), I was following along with Dan's arguments up until his last sentence, "and I thought that in America we like to see extra effort rewarded. " In a previous paragraph, Mr. Rodricks laments the huge gap between the country's wealthiest 10 percent and everyone else and questions why we legally limit the amount of compensation food industry and hospitality workers might get. If he feels strongly, as he should, that the government should not be limiting the amount of money anyone can earn, why is he OK with limiting the amount that the wealthiest 10 percent earn through confiscatory and punitive taxes and tax rates?
