A few hundred high school juniors gathered in a ring around a hawk as it devoured a squirrel Tuesday morning at the Naval Academy. Brandishing their smartphones, the crowd groaned and cheered at the action. "Take a picture and move on," an academy midshipman shouted. It was the only blood the teens saw during their week at the Naval Academy Summer Seminar for high school students. But there was plenty of talk about warfare, and about other things that fly — such as the U.S. military's V-22 Ospreys, a tiltrotor aircraft that some of the students might one day fly. The academy's Summer Seminar, which offers three weeklong sessions in June, aims to give rising high school seniors a taste of life at the academy before they apply to colleges in the fall.

Fireworks exploded. The Olympics theme song blared, and audience members rose to their feet. The tall athlete strode to the center of the arena. Before taking the stage, Michael Phelps stopped to kiss his mother seated in the first row. No, he wasn't accepting another gold medal. The swimmer from Baltimore, dressed in a gray suit and lavender tie, was one of the celebrities headlining a touring motivational business seminar that came to the city Tuesday. Phelps told his now-familiar story of setting a goal as a child and sticking to it, allowing him to surpass his wildest dreams.

Recently, there's been a lot of focus on the financial exploitation of older adults. The FTC last month held a one-day workshop on senior identity theft , which highlighted some of the types of ID theft that older adults encounter. Yesterday, the Investor Protection Trust released an online survey of more than 600 doctors and nurses about investment and financial fraud against older adults. The nonprofit IPT offers an Elder Investment Fraud Financial Exploitation program that seeks to train medical professionals to recognize and report cases of elder financial abuse to authorities or others who can help.

The recent article "St. Mary's College: a cautionary tale for America's bloated higher education system," about the under-enrollment for next year's freshman class and why it is happening, struck me as badly written and simply untrue. I finished up my freshman year at St. Mary's this spring and feel that this article is simply wrong. As a high school senior I had absolutely no intention of going to a state school, as they seem too big and too impersonal. St. Mary's gave me the option to go to a much less expensive school than any of the six others I applied to, while still allowing me to live on a beautiful campus with a real community.

Regarding Anne D. Neal's commentary on St. Mary's College of Maryland, how sad it was to read such an uneducated piece published by a usually trustworthy source ("Campus cautionary tale," May 30). The article was a perfect example of manipulation of facts. Granted, St. Mary's is more expensive than the University of Maryland College Park and other institutions. But Ms. Neal's article fails to report that we benefit from small class sizes, which requires more class participation than sitting in a lecture hall with several hundred students.

The recent commentary about St. Mary's College of Maryland, written by Anne Neal, the president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, is troubling on a number of levels - not least of which is that it's not really about St. Mary's ("Cautionary campus tale," May 30). Instead, through a combination of outright factual inaccuracies and very selectively chosen information, Ms. Neal seizes upon the college's 100-student enrollment shortfall to hammer home one of the ACTA's core messages: that American colleges and universities are failing students by turning away from an education focused on western civilization and traditional American values.

St. Mary's College alumni are currently aware of the "crisis" in admissions, which is unfortunate and reflects a number of factors, including the admissions strategy of the new college president as well as the changing nature and economics of higher education. While this situation works itself out they are right to express concern over St. Mary's future. However, to suggest, as commentator Anne D. Neal does, that St. Mary's does not deserve to survive because of the kind of education it offers or because its curriculum is somehow inadequate, reflects a serious misunderstanding of a public liberal arts education and what the college means to its students and alumni ("Cautionary campus tale," May 30)

Sadly, the Maryland SPCA receives pets that are surrendered by neighbors of people who have passed away, because no one has made plans for the animals ahead of time. No pet lover wants to think of their dog, cat, bird, or other animal being put up for adoption, so the SPCA is hosting a seminar to help owners make plans for pets who may outlive them. The seminar will be held Sunday, March 17 at 2 p.m., and again Wednesday, March 27 at 7 p.m. at the SPCA's administrative office, 3300 Falls Road, Baltimore.

Last summer, Anna Estremsky competed in the first-ever Youth Angler of the Year contest hosted by the Maryland Saltwater Sportfishing Association. In the association's seasonal magazine, Tidelines, Anna was pictured with a 37-pound rockfish and the caption "Way to go, Anna!" Her parents, Gary and Sherry, left an open copy of the magazine on a coffee table in their Edgewater home. Anna liked the picture, and she liked the fish, but she felt bad because the magazine also listed the contest's standings, and she was in last place.
