SARC, a non-profit right in the heart of Harford County, feels not only "liked", but loved! SARC was nominated by a local Liberty Mutual personal insurance agent, Lee Tayson, to participate in the "Like My Community" program, where SARC had the chance to win $30,000 based on the number of votes they gathered. On Aug. 20, after two months of online and mobile text voting, SARC came in third place, which qualified them for the $30,000. Since 1978, SARC has provided hope and resources to victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and stalking.

Reports of sexual assaults at the Naval Academy doubled last year, the fourth straight year the number has increased, according to the Defense Department. But do the findings of the Pentagon report on sexual harassment and assaults mean that such incidents are on the rise in Annapolis? Or do they show that midshipmen have grown more aware of sexual assault and are more likely to report it to authorities? Academy officials and critics alike hope it's the latter — but say it is impossible to know for certain.

As the application deadline loomed for vendors who want to participate in a fundraising event in Bel Air next month, Hazel U. Hopkins fretted that a favorite caterer might have forgotten to sign up.

The audience peers in at the world of "Ruined" as if through the chinks of a boarded-up window. Our eyes adjust gradually to the light inside Mama Nadi's brothel in the Belgian Congo.

We notice that a prostitute so brutalized by soldiers that she walks with a limp still dresses in breezy chintzes that drape sinuously over her lovely limbs.
