Bryant Bennett's article, "U.S. strikes at Mexican cartels in wide raids" (Feb. 25), was indeed welcome news, following the unfortunate death of the American special agent Jaime Zapata and the wounding of another agent. In my opinion, this would never have happened if our government had sealed the Mexican border years ago and eliminated the distribution and utilization of these drugs and weapons by so many Americans, young and old, which is basically far more damaging to the safety and welfare of our country than some of our overseas military conflicts when you consider they are actually destroying the hearts and minds of so many of our young people, who no doubt, will be the future foundation and salvation of our United States.

Every two-term president since the 22nd Amendment was ratified in 1951 has faced being a lame-duck upon his re-election. Barack Obama clearly is no exception. With approximately 28 months left in his presidency, the clock is running out as he seeks to achieve a favorable legacy. Unless Mr. Obama's party defies the odds and retains control of the Senate and recaptures the House in the November elections, the outlook seems dim to reverse the Republican obstructionism that has hobbled most of his White House tenure.

Just prior to World War II, while working as a U.S. Immigration Border Patrol officer on the U.S./Canadian border at Chateaugay, N.Y., my father stopped and inspected a car as it entered American soil. The man's Germanic accent, dress, behavior/deportment and foreign pronunciation of the letter "Z" (as "zed" in the word zebra) set off a red alert, and my dad informed the driver that he would have to inspect the trunk. "Oh, I forgot to tell you, I have a man back there!" the driver said.

When Jamal Cannady of Sharptown reflects on his time at summer camp, his voice warms with the onrush of happy memories and enthusiasm. Ziplining, swimming, boating — he does it all. "Things I never did before in life I get to do at camp. I like to go out on a canoe ride, go in the pool, go camping, go on a nature walk, sing songs and we do a lot of things in the woods," he said. Cannady, 32, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Since he was 2, he has spent part of his summer at Easter Seals' Camp Fairlee, a camp established to give children and adults with a spectrum of disabilities the opportunity to experience everything offered at a typical summer camp.

Hastings, the injured harbor seal rescued in Ocean City in January, returned to the Atlantic waters this morning after months of rehabilitation. The seal was tagged with a satellite transmitter before his release on the beach in the Ocean City inlet in front of a crowd of onlookers. The transmitter will allow scientists to track him and learn more about migration and feeding patterns. When Hastings was released, Aquarium spokesperson Jen Bloomer said, "He looked around a bit … then he spotted the water and headed toward it. His head was up as he went through the waves.

It's our second results show of the season; who's going home? It's got to be one of the "24 is the new 21" scores, right? That'd be Jack, Gladys, Melissa, Gavin or Sherri. I'm thinking Melissa. We start with a performance of Seal, covering "Lean on Me. " I'm, alas, of the generation that first knew this song as a Club Nouveau song . Forgive me - I have mended my ways and am now a huge Bill Withers fan. I'm perfectly fine with listening to Seal sing most anything, even a straight-forward cover like this one. Just getting my first look at Brooke's dress - I think this was the alternate design for Dale Arden's wedding dress in "Flash Gordon.

Dan McCall sells a lot of T-shirts, coffee cups and other products that tweak the government, so his designs parodying the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security were pretty typical fare. Until the cease-and-desist demands hit. The situation turned into a First Amendment primer - that it is, in fact, OK to use government agency seals to lampoon or criticize. McCall sued, his case handled pro bono by Public Citizen in Washington and Baltimore attorney Ezra Gollogly, and the two agencies agreed in a settlement to reverse course.

Even a three-goal performance from Kara Burke (Dulaney) wasn't enough for the No. 11 Loyola Maryland women's lacrosse team as No. 2 host Syracuse scored the last five goals and won in overtime, 14-12, on Saturday. The Greyhounds (15-5) trailed for most of the game until going on a 5-0 run in the second half for a 12-9 lead. The run started with free-position goals by Annie Thomas (John Carroll) with 18:26 left and by Burke 1:13 later. The Orange (18-2) answered as Alyssa Murray scored two of her game-high four goals during the run. Syracuse's Kayla Treanor tied the score at 12 to force overtime with 41 seconds left.

Previously sealed documents relating to the divorce case between Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman and her husband, Paul Volkman, were declared open last week, at least temporarily reversing an earlier order to shield the case from public scrutiny. In March, an Anne Arundel judge granted Neuman's request to seal the case without holding a hearing to determine if there was cause to do so, prompting objections from media organizations including The Baltimore Sun - and the decision to release documents until a hearing can be held.

The path that brought Nelson Cruz to the orange carpet for Opening Day introductions at Camden Yards on Monday afternoon wasn't the one he imagined months ago when he became a free agent. But if there was any doubt in his mind whether he landed in the right place, those questions were answered quickly. As Cruz ran down the carpet before the Orioles' season opener against the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox, Baltimore welcomed him with the long, exaggerated chant of his last name - “Cruuuuuzzzz” - a sound he had heard for several years from adoring fans in his former home ballpark playing for the Texas Rangers.

All season, the No. 1 City boys basketball team has been able to capably handle everything sent its way. On Tuesday, No. 9 Patterson provided a significant test through four quarters, only to see the Knights respond to each push. Omari George scored a team-high 23 points, Kamau Stokes added 14 and Timmy Bond scored 13 as City stayed perfect at 16-0 with a resilient, 69-62, home win over the Clippers.. Answers for the Knights came at both ends of the court, taking the form of a big blocked shot attempt by Bond, an extra pass by George or Bond for easy baskets and a big rebound or two from Juwan or John Grant.

Q: I have weatherstripped my front and side doors, but there's a draft coming in underneath them. How can I seal out the drafts under the doors without having the seal rub on my carpet when opening the door?A: The threshold seal under a door is often neglected when weatherstripping. It receives the most abuse from opening and closing the door and from feet and objects being dragged over it. Just a small leak there can cause cold feet in the winter and can push up your utility bills year-round.

The Randallstown boys basketball team closed out its game against Patterson in Thursday's 18th annual Basketball Academy with a couple erratic minutes of play. The No. 11 Rams had costly turnovers, some inconsistent aim at the free throw line and the big court and environment at Morgan State might have given them jitters. But the Rams' strong all-around performance, particularly in the second and third quarters, was enough, albeit just barely. Senior guard Devin Smith made one free throw with 31 seconds left, the last of his team-high 23 points, and Randallstown had two defensive stops from there to pull out a 70-69 win over No. 5 Patterson.

The pact that will facilitate the $1 billion, decade-long effort to upgrade Baltimore city school facilities was finalized today, with a unanimous vote of the Maryland Board of Public Works to approve a Memorandum of Understanding that will serve as a blueprint for revitalizing the city's dilapidated school infrastructure. The memorandum, which outlines the roles and responsibilities of state and local agencies over the course of the system's 10-year facilities plan, was a condition of the law that allows the district to orchestrate and fund 30 to 35 renovations and new structures.
