I appreciate The Sun's editorial in favor of going slow on natural gas drilling from shale deposits ( "Go slow on shale drilling," Feb. 14). This risky drilling practice involves injecting chemicals more than a mile deep at high pressure to fracture rock formations and extract natural gas. Experience shows that it can lead to contamination of drinking water supplies and other environment damage. Some people want to go forward with this type of drilling in Maryland as quickly as possible, as if we would lose the chance if we don't drill it all right now. But the gas has been there for hundreds of millions of years.

Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

Baltimore County CouncilmanKenneth N. Oliver is right to proceed cautiously in rezoning the former Solo Cup site in Owings Mills until more is known about its effect on traffic. State transportation officials have begun two major studies of traffic along the Reisterstown Road corridor, a key area that is already congested. Until we know what fixes are needed to relieve the gridlock - and how much it will cost as well as where the money will come from - the last thing Baltimore County should do is add another 400,000 square feet of retail space.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ravens running back Bernard Pierce ran hard through the middle for a pair of first downs in the third quarter Sunday, displaying no effects of a quadriceps injury that had hampered him for the past few weeks. Despite Pierce gaining 13 yards and 12 yards on his first two carries, the drive stalled and he would see limited playing time overall in his first game back. Pierce finished with 30 yards on four carries in the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Aboard the North Avenue bus — The woman in the khaki cutoffs with the close-cropped hairdo might not have expected her Hollywood moment to occur while she was riding the Number 13 bus. But if that was the venue chosen by Providence, she was determined not to miss her chance. "You should put me in your play," she told her two seatmates as they bent over a laptop, conferring seriously. She'd never met the pair before they all had boarded the bus together. But that was before the woman learned that Ira Gamerman and Jayme Kilburn were working together on a play.

Just the other night, the local news reported two stabbings. In light of all the recent knee-jerk gun legislation, where is the outrage and legislation for knife control? Knives should be banned. Knife owners need to be licensed and finger printed - so that when someone stabs someone, as happens in Maryland on a regular basis, the police know whom to go after. There should be consistent and fair legislation for such crimes. If there have to be draconian gun laws here, then judging by the news there should also be equally strict knife control laws in Maryland.

I am appalled by the Baltimore Sun's coverage of the recent incident in which a black teenager was allegedly beaten up by a member of Shomrim ( "Tension in Park Heights," Dec. 5). Our justice system requires a presumption of innocence until proven guilty by a court of law. Yet your reporters chose to totally disregard that basic tenet, tried and convicted a young man with no prior criminal record and then chose to interview rabble-rousing clergymen to justify their "verdict" and try to create a rift between the black and Jewish communities.

The state's biotech tax credits drew more than 180 applications within three minutes of the window opening for the $8 million available this fiscal year, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development said Thursday. The credits go to investors pumping money into fledgling Maryland biotechnology firms in need of capital. The credits will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis to those that qualify — thus the rush. Initial credit certifications will be issued within 30 calendar days, DBED said.

In a game they desperately need to win, the Ravens will experience life without Terrell Suggs on Sunday. That it comes against the unbeaten Indianapolis Colts, with unstoppable Peyton Manning flinging touchdown passes, makes for an even more dire setting. It took nine games, three straight losses and a dreadful outing on "Monday Night Football," but the Ravens are back in a neighborhood they appreciate. Underdog is a profile that suits them. After 105 straight games, Suggs, a three-time Pro Bowl linebacker/defensive end, will sit out Sunday with a sprained right knee ligament.

The Baltimore Orioles' second home playoff game against the Detroit Tigers is scheduled today for a first pitch at 12:07 p.m., so fans may be using light rail to get to Camden Yards between the morning rush hour and noontime. The Maryland Transit Administration says commuters should expect increased traffic on I-95/I-395 in Baltimore, and is also warning people that post game traffic will impact the afternoon rush. People are encouraged to use light rail to get to Camden Yards.

The last thing a struggling passing offense needs is a matchup against a defense with a relentless pass rush. That's the scenario awaiting Towson (2-3 overall and 0-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association) when the Tigers play league rival Stony Brook at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Towson, which ranks 112th out of 121 Football Championship Subdivision teams in passing at 115.6 yards per game, meets a Seawolves defense that ranks sixth in the country in sacks with 17. But as coach Rob Ambrose pointed out, sacks aren't the only department in which Stony Brook fares well.

The letter from Dawn DiBattista regarding the shameful flip-flop of the NFL and the Ravens in their treatment of Ray Rice expresses a well-reasoned point of view that has been largely suppressed by the vitriol of the do-gooders who would impose their one-size-fits-all solution to the domestic violence problem we face in our society ( "Ravens have fumbled badly," Sept. 26). Congratulations, Ms. DiBattista, for expressing so well the notion that individual circumstances should not be ignored when punishing individuals who have violated the law. How we mete out punishment says much about us as a society.

Former Pro Bowl outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil is hoping to crank up the Ravens' languishing pass rush. Through three games, the Ravens have recorded just three sacks with two of them registered by Dumervil during a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens (2-1) are tied for 27th in the NFL in sacks. Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs has zero sacks this season and just one sack in his past 11 games, the last one coming last December when he tagged down New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Buddy Green spent a total of four days at Anne Arundel Medical Center getting treatment for an undisclosed ailment. When the veteran defensive coordinator returned to Navy football practice Wednesday, it was suggested that spending too much time watching Western Kentucky's prolific offense prompted Green to hurry back to work. "Actually, watching Western Kentucky will put you back in the hospital," Green quipped. First-year coach Jeff Brohm has installed a pass-happy Hilltoppers attack that piles up yards and points at a rapid rate.

Inside the Ravens' locker room late Sunday afternoon, rookie running back Lorenzo Taliaferro smiled and did his best to shrug off compliments from veteran teammates. Taliaferro, a fourth-round draft pick, rushed for a game-high 91 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries during a 23-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Those were Taliaferro's first NFL regular-season carries after primarily playing on special teams in the Ravens' first two games. Taliaferro provided a boost to a backfield that was missing starter Bernard Pierce because of a quadriceps injury and no longer has Ray Rice after his $35 million contract was terminated in the fallout from his domestic violence incident.

With Cary Williams apparently set to start at cornerback, speculation has intensified on who will start at the other spot in the Ravens' season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. One candidate, rookie Jimmy Smith, said after Friday's practice that he has not received any confirmation that he could be the other starter. Asked if he'd like to know sooner rather than later, Smith said, “It doesn't matter. If I'm starting, I'm starting. But I'll be going in with the same mentality anyway.” Smith, the organization's first-round pick in April, is a big, physical talent who can match up with the Steelers' speedy corps of wide receivers.

Thank you for continuing to push back against the gorilla now moving through the special session ("Las Vegas on the Chesapeake," Aug. 13). I just don't think there is enough money within the state of Maryland to support all these casinos in a fashion that makes the casino operators happy and leaves the state flush with cash. With neighboring states approving their own casinos, it is unrealistic to think that anyone will bother to come to Maryland to gamble. I think Hollywood Casino's woes are just the tip of the iceberg.

There is nothing fancy about Cleveland's offense. There are few gimmick or trick plays, they don't spread teams out with a lot of packages and the running game is pretty basic. But if the Ravens are to beat the Browns on Sunday in Cleveland, one of the top priorities is to slow that running game. It's a lot harder than it seems. "They're young with two rookies back there, but they run hard and they're different runners," said Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata of running backs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell.

As one of the shortest players on the Morgan State football team, Herb Walker Jr. has a nickname among his Bears teammates: "Smurf. " The running back, who recently confessed to being 1 inch shorter than his already diminutive listed height of 5 feet 8, has heard worse from defenses. The insults don't bother him as much as the assumptions behind them. Opponents tell Walker he's "soft. Or I don't run hard," he said. "But they'll feel me when I get the ball. " Neither label fit after the 19-year-old Walker set a school record a week ago. In Morgan State's 26-23 loss Saturday to Holy Cross, 26-23, the sophomore rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.
