The perpetrator: Sheetz gas station, Joppa. The crime: Offering a great deal on regular unleaded. The sentence: Raise prices, soak customers and pile up the profits. Maryland may have trouble protecting residents from murder, robbery and al-Qaida. But it has triumphed over the threat of lower gas prices. Since the beginning of last year the comptroller's office has received 85 allegations of service stations selling gas too cheaply, investigated 44 and ordered stores to increase prices in dozens of cases, according to spokesman Joseph Shapiro.

Erik Sheetz came down with a cold earlier this week. The spring semester is coming to a close, and the two 15-page papers that were due in his upper-level courses last week cost him plenty of sleep.Sheetz should feel run down more often.A junior at Towson State, Sheetz was the only possible choice as the East Coast Conference baseball Player of the Week. In seven games between April 22 and 28, the stocky first baseman hit an even .500 (15-for-30), with 16 RBIs, six home runs and four other extra-base hits.

When he was a little boy growing up on a farm in southern Lancaster County, Pa., close by the Susquehanna River, all Mack Sheetz wanted to do after completing his chores for his father was go fishing. The then-15-year-old usually fished alone, with a tenacity that rivaled that of the grown-ups he studied. "If I saw a guy catching fish, I paid a lot of attention to him. I watched what he did. I took it real serious. When I went to the river I wanted to catch me a big one. That's the only thing that was on my mind," the 82-year-old Churchville resident recalls while sitting in his kitchen.

Recent stories about two victims of Baltimore's continuing murder epidemic reminded readers of the pervasive pain of violent death in the city. Some officials have argued that despite Baltimore's high per-capita murder rate, the city is relatively safe for those who don't sell or use drugs. And there is also a tendency to assume that a murdered black youth had been involved in illegal activity. But Nov. 11, services were held for two innocent young black people killed by strangers for no apparent reason.

Maryland: Lending Lenders bailing out of Montgomery About 20 mortgage lenders have decided to stop doing business in Montgomery County, blaming an anti-discrimination law that will go into effect in the jurisdiction next week, according to the Maryland Association of Mortgage Brokers. The ordinance adds examples to the definition of discriminatory lending and raises maximum damages 100-fold, to $500,000. Supporters say the law is no more stringent than the federal fair-housing rules, but opponents say the wording is precariously vague.

Repeal is sought on gas-cost control Hoping to reduce prices at the pump, a group of Republican delegates is trying to repeal a state law prohibiting below-cost gasoline sales. Proponents of the repeal said in a hearing yesterday that the government shouldn't regulate prices, and that free-market competition will benefit consumers. During the spike in gas prices after Hurricane Katrina last fall, Maryland gas prices were among the highest in the nation, according to AAA surveys. "This bill would lower gas prices for all Marylanders," said Del. Warren E. Miller, a Howard County Republican who is the measure's chief sponsor.

The nation marked a holiday last week with a day off for many workers, sales at many stores and ceremonies for those who have served in the armed forces. But for Sam Sheetz, Veterans Day had a quiet, personal meaning - a remembrance from when he was a young man. When Sam Sheetz was wounded pulling fellow infantrymen out of hostile fire in Vietnam, he didn't think of the home runs he'd hit playing baseball as a youngster or the touchdowns he scored playing halfback for Bel Air High School in the early 1960s.

More than two hours before the frozen dawn, the morning rush has begun beneath the bright lights of the red-canopied Sheetz in Joppatowne. At 5 a.m., cars, trucks and vans are tethered to nearly half of the 20 gas pumps at this super-sized convenience store, their drivers anxious to get out of the cold and rejoin the stream of headlights passing on Pulaski Highway. "Pump two, you must shut off your pickup while pumping gas," a disembodied voice calls out from a loudspeaker above the pumps.
