I agree with the Safe Surrender program ("Hundreds seek Safe Surrender," June 20). First of all, it provided a comfortable environment for the people with nonviolent crimes to get their lives back on track. Second of a, it provides a safe haven for people. Finally, everybody who turned themselves in received " favorable consideration." The program gave everyone a chance to do what is right and make better lives for themselves. People will have a second chance. One of the people mentioned in The Sun, Nakia Parrine, was wanted on drug charges for about four years and finally decided to turn herself in so she could get a job to support her family.

President Obama's new policies on nuclear weapons definitely will make us less safe. He just virtually tossed our nuclear deterrence out the window, as he is counting on the so-called good will of our potential enemies. His new strategy renounces the development of any new nuclear weapons and is also overruling his own defense secretary's policy. This faulty strategy is a severe change and shift from those of his predecessors as he seeks to revamp our nations nuclear posture, and this comes in a time in which rogue nations and terrorist organizations like Iran and North Korea have become a greater threat than traditional powers like China and Russia.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin displayed his sense of humor Tuesday when asked if Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones needs to watch out for him on the kickoff team Thursday night. "No, I won't be," Tomlin said with a laugh during a conference call with Baltimore reporters. "Tell Jacoby he's safe. " Tomlin was fined $100,000 by the NFL last season for sideline interference when he nearly collided with Jones, jumping out of the way at the last moment to avoid colliding with the Pro Bowl return specialist.

Diana Pilleris said Jeff Cupp broke into her apartment and stole $200. Baltimore police arrested him, charging him with burglary and destruction of property, and he spent three days in the city jail. The day after he posted bail, Cupp jumped on an airplane and flew to Germany with his girlfriend. He failed to appear for his trial, and a judge promptly issued a warrant seeking his arrest. That was Sept. 15, 1981. The warrant was never served, and most of the paperwork appears to have been lost.

The show opens with text telling us that last night was about the best year of their lives, but that tonight will be "The worst night ... " I really hope that's not true for any of these people. The opening number is all the female pros and troupe members dancing to "Run the World (Girls)" by Beyonce. This routine singlehandedly keeps the red fringe industry going for another year. Tom comments, looking over at the women taking their bows, "I love this job. " And we love you, Tom. Quick clip montage of last night's dances.

My children are not permitted to watch television during the school week. Unless, of course, they are driving me crazy. Then they can watch all the TV they want.But it has to be public television.I imposed this condition when I found my 8-year-old daughter watching VH1 and reruns of "Golden Girls." "At least I'm not watching MTV," she protested.Well, I thought, it's only a matter of time before they are watching Oprah and Ricki Lake while I'm trying to get dinner on the table. So I gave them a choice: public TV only.

With my job as a cartoonist and columnist for one the nation's biggest newspapers comes a modicum of minor celebrity, but I can't imagine a big market for naked pictures of myself. This is not the case for true celebrities, such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, who, along with as many as 100 others, had private nude photos of themselves stolen from Apple's iCloud storage system and posted for public perusal online. Whether the hackers who did this were out to make money or simply to prove their technological prowess, they caught the attention of the FBI, which is now investigating.

Actress Lena Dunham of HBO's "Girls" called it no less than a sex offense. But some men who wanted to see even more of the photos were furious an any attempt to remove them, calling it a violation of their right to free speech. They believed they were entitled to see these women naked.

Q: Howard County now has two dog parks - one in Ellicott City and one in Columbia. What do we need to know before taking our dog? A: I think dog parks are a great idea, especially in urban and suburban areas where it's not safe to let dogs run and play off-leash. Still, dog parks are only as good as the humans who take their pets to play there. It all starts with the rules, which promote safety for both humans and pets. Howard County's dog parks prohibit the following within the fenced off-leash areas: kids under age 12, smoking and eating, dog treats, glass containers of any kind, dogs in heat, puppies under 4 months old, and animals other than dogs.

Opening the Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf to geophysical activities represents a unique opportunity for the nation to assess available resources and to do it in an environmentally responsible manner ( "Some Md. lawmakers oppose seismic testing," Aug. 4). Seismic survey activities are temporary and transitory and are the least intrusive way to explore the earth's geology and its dynamic processes. Seismic surveys provide the needed information about the value and location of key resources, enabling the government to evaluate the information and make informed decisions.

The crisis may have eased in Toledo , but the toxic algae in Lake Erie that contaminated the water supply for 500,000 people in Ohio continues to plague lakes and rivers across the country, including here in Maryland. Lake Williston, a swimming hole for a Girl Scout camp in Caroline County, is off limits this summer because of  dangerous levels of a toxin in its water.  So is 75-acre Lake Needwood in Rock Creek Regional Park in Montgomery County.  Same for Northwest Creek, a 100-acre impoundment on Kent Island in Queen Anne's County.

If only the bank had lasted as long as the safe. First National Bank of Hampstead opened in 1910 and closed during the Great Depression. But the 6,000-pound cannonball pedestal safe sat there until last week, when a demolition crew hauled it away to make room for a new police station. After protecting money and treasures for decades, the elegant sphere could end up as scrap metal unless someone comes forward with a very strong concrete slab and a lot of cash to haul the safe. "There's no place in town we can put it," said Hampstead Town Manager Kenneth Decker.
