Marion Elizabeth Rodgers' recent letter praising the work of Charles A. Fecher, the biographer and scholar of Henry Louis Mencken who died on January 16, was right on target. But it should also be noted that Ms. Rodgers is the author of the best and most complete overall biography ever written about Mr. Mencken entitled "Mencken: The American Iconoclast" and published in 2005.

As a theologian and biblical scholar, I wish to respond to two points made by commentator Thomas Schaller, whose disdain for using religion to underwrite war I share ( "The Islamic State's false promise," Sept. 30). The practices he attributes to fundamentalist Christians in military institutions are simply more extreme forms of the misguided religious language used to support war in general. We see this, for example, in the pervasive rhetoric of "God bless our troops" from the president on down to local newspapers, church prayer meetings and everyday conversation.

The Rev. Walter John Paulits, a long-time Baltimore-area priest and theology scholar, died June 4 from natural causes at an assisted living residence in the Pasadena area. He was 88. In a career that spanned decades as an educator, religious scholar and priest, he founded and served as pastor of Our Lady of the Chesapeake Roman Catholic Church in Pasadena in 1980 and, although he retired in 1991, was still heavily involved with the church until about a year ago. Both his academic pursuits and a practical sense informed his priesthood, according to those who worked with him. He invited experts in seminary, liturgy and ecumenical outreach to visit and share knowledge, while at the same time empowering his flock with a you-can-do-it attitude.

No one was more surprised than Katelyn Miller when the Bucknell graduate learned she had been named the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Division I Scholar-Athlete of the Year on Tuesday. Miller, who played high school lacrosse at McDonogh, had never even heard of the award -- the highest academic honor in college women's lacrosse. "I didn't even know this existed," Miller said with a laugh. "It was really exciting just because I always try to work my hardest whether I'm on the field or I'm in the classroom.

Marriotts Ridge High School senior Tianhao Gao approached taking the SAT with one primary objective: score well enough to prevent needing to take it a second time. To say she accomplished that goal is an understatement. The Ellicott City resident, who also goes by Tina, scored a 2370, just 30 points from an overall perfect score and including perfect scores (800 each) in the math and reading categories. Her efforts were enough to draw the attention of the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars, appointed by the president to annually award students with one of the nation's highest honors for academic or artistic achievement.

North Harford quarterback Nic Hammer enjoyed being a leader during his two years as a starter. He often served as a coach on the field, constantly helping answer teammates' questions about their assignments. Hammer knew those answers because he studied and learned the entire offensive playbook. That's why he became such a strong leader for the Hawks, and a big reason he was one of the winners at the 51st Annual Scholar Athlete Awards Dinner Wednesday at Martin's West. The Greater Baltimore Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame holds this dinner annually and four other players received the same honor.
