I was surprised to read that limited National Guard resources were used to drive "at least one" Baltimore City prosecutor into work during the blizzard to make bail recommendations for recently incarcerated individuals ("Snow also causing delays in criminal justice system," Feb. 9). Would defense lawyers for the poor be given the same consideration? Even when the blizzard is over and courts resume, people accused of a crime will still be denied an attorney at the initial appearance before a district court commissioner and will be left to fend for themselves.

Lyric Opera Baltimore, which scaled back from three productions to two after its 2011-2012 inaugural season, is scaling back again. Only one staged work, Puccini's "Madama Butterfly," will be presented during 2014-2015, the company's fourth season. "The board of directors definitely wants to go ahead with grand opera here, but we want to be fiscally responsible," said James Harp, artistic director of Lyric Opera Baltimore. "We want to have enough money in the bank. This will be a re-building year so we can have two productions again in '15-'16.

My mugo pine has white things on the needles like paint flakes. Do I need to address this? That is pine needle scale, a native pest that also occurs on other pines and spruce. Scale insects hide under their shell-like cover and suck out cell contents. Normally, native insects such as lady beetles and parasitic wasps keep this scale under control, but if you see a lot of white flecks, a plant could suffer yellowing, stunting or dieback. Apply a summer-weight horticultural oil twice, in mid-May and late July, when the eggs hatch over two to three weeks and little red crawlers are visible (you may need a magnifying glass to see them)

In Jeffrey Henson Scales' photo series "House's Barbershop," a tradition lovingly perpetuates itself even as it subtly changes.A seasoned barber gives a young man a radical, patterned cut of triangles and squares while another barber lathers up an elderly man for a shave the way barbers have been doing it down the ages. Towels mingle with newspapers and jars of barber stuff on cluttered counters; photographs share the walls with mirrors. This barber shop's alive with activity and conversation, and it's almost possible to hear the tales passed down from generation to generation.

Significant demographic obstacles stand in the path of the state's achieving its goal of ensuring that 55 percent of its population has a two-year post-secondary degree or higher by 2025. The baby boom "echo" - a primarily white phenomenon that resulted in a temporary increase in high school graduates beginning in 1995 - is over. The number of white graduates is now declining steadily and will continue to do so for some time to come. During the upturn, many campuses raised their admissions standards significantly to take advantage of the growing pool of relatively affluent and well-prepared students graduating from high school.

For proof that kids love pizza, have a look at Everett Stimler's "Folk Art House. " A 5th grader at Lisbon Elementary School, Stimler made this painting by applying acrylic paint to the lid of a pizza box. And several other students in a new art exhibit likewise made paintings on pizza boxes. These pizza-box-as-canvas paintings amount to just a few slices of the hundreds of pieces of art in various mediums that fill a gallery at the Howard County Arts Council for an exhibit titled "Alternative Processes — Alternative Materials.

If there is one thing Katie Boltz has mastered in high school, it is how to use every minute of her day efficiently. With five Advanced Placement classes, the Dulaney High School senior doesn't text her friends or watch TV so she can focus on homework - but still only manages three or four hours of sleep some nights. "Originally, I thought I would really like all of these classes," the 17-year-old said, adding that when she is overwhelmed, she questions the decision to take so many demanding classes at one time.

The Anne Arundel County Council voted Monday to scale back retiree health benefits for current and future county government employees, a move officials said was needed to keep the county from facing a fiscal crisis. After months of discussion among council members, County Executive Laura Neuman and union officials, the bill was approved with only brief discussion on a 5-2 vote. The bill's sponsor, Councilman Jamie Benoit, a Crownsville Democrat, said the measure "has probably involved more work than any I've worked on. " Neuman brought the issue to the forefront in September, saying the county would be "on a path to bankruptcy" if it didn't change the retiree benefits package.

Question: We found flat greenish overlapping scales on a twig. They almost look like oval fish scales. Is this a "scale" insect or eggs some pest insect that we should destroy? (A digital photo was attached using the Send-a-Question feature on the HGIC website.) Answer: These are the eggs of a katydid, a popular insect whose katy-did-katy-didn't call entertains on summer nights. A beautiful member of the grasshopper family, katydids have large rounded green wings that look so much like leaves that it is a real feat to find one. They nibble harmlessly on leaves and the occasional slow-moving insect such as aphid.

The average rush-hour commuter will pay about $3.50 in daily round-trip tolls to use the new express lanes being built along Interstate 95 north of Baltimore, according to a rate structure approved by the Maryland Transportation Authority's board on Thursday. Peak-hour rates will be set at 25 cents per mile along the 7-mile stretch for two-axle vehicles, with drivers paying 20 cents per mile during off-peak hours and 10 cents per mile during overnight hours. Those rates fall at the low end of the toll range approved in September by the board, based on recommendations from MdTA staff, who considered consultants' reports on traffic volumes and the value of drivers' time.
