I WAS DISMAYED to read The Sun once again take a position (editorial, June 30) supporting the killing of ''nuisance'' deer in Maryland.No matter how tightly ''managed'' these hunts are, there is always room for disaster. Last year, a deer hunt in Anne Arundel County caused a wounded deer to flee across a highway, crash into a car and nearly kill the 16-year-old driver.We should have learned by now that hunting does not solve our problems, but rather it makes them worse.Maryland citizens are legitimately concerned about deer crashing into cars and munching on their azaleas.

On  his Fox News show  Monday night, Bill O'Reilly suggested using mercenaries to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) instead of U.S. ground forces, which President Obama has repeatedly vowed not to deploy. The use of mercenaries is as old as warfare itself. Alexander the Great used them. King George III hired German mercenaries to fight for the British in the American Revolution. Today  mercenaries go by other names, like “contractor . " The president is to be commended for assembling a coalition that includes Arab states, but why are more of  our European allies not part of it?

When real estate professionals Alex Kopicki and Jeff Jacobson started a development firm roughly three years ago, they figured they knew what they were doing, so they were surprised by one of their biggest problems out of the gate. "We actually had a great deal of trouble identifying and locating our first office space," Kopicki said. "It was a real head-scratcher. " And thus a new business was born. As the real estate firm, Solstice Partners, took off, the pair started noodling with plans for a website that would make it easier for a small business like theirs to find a place to rent.

As principal of a small Southeast Baltimore school, Anthony Ruby has guided an array of first-year teachers, from the stars who seem to have an innate sense of how to handle a class to those who were so ineffective he declined to renew their contracts. When teachers aren't effective, he said, "it is not fair to our kids," many of whom are low-income and immigrant. Hundreds of teachers are hired each year to fill vacancies in Baltimore, and the majority will be newcomers to the profession.

City police officials have replaced the department's homicide chief in the wake of a string of unsolved murders this summer that shattered what had been a period of relative calm. Maj. Stanley Brandford will take over the homicide unit from Maj. Dennis Smith, who had been running homicide along with the shooting and robbery divisions since April. Putting the unit under separate command is probably the right move given the outsized role homicides play in shaping perceptions of Baltimore.

Baltimore police officials have replaced the commander of the homicide unit as two high-profile cases remain unsolved amid a recent spate of violence that saw a killing a day. Maj.

Stanley Brandford, has been pulled from his current assignment running the city's Eastern District and will temporarily oversee the unit again, officials said.

NUMB3RS: SEASON ONE / / Paramount Home Video / / $54.99 When it premiered on CBS in 2005, NUMB3RS seemed like it might just be another crime drama, albeit one featuring the FBI getting help from a mathematician to solve cases. But as the show's first season, out Tuesday on DVD, continued, it became clear that it was a little different. This is in large part because of its stars -- Rob Morrow as FBI agent Don Eppes, David Krumholtz as his brother, Charlie, a gifted professor of mathematics, and Judd Hirsch as their dad -- and the dynamic among them.

Over the years I have tried to educate the public about the disease of addiction and how a drug addict thinks and makes decisions. Let me remind the readers that a drug addict only wants one thing and one thing only - more drugs, at all costs. A drug addict doesn't care about their health, they are not fearful of the police, they aren't good parents, they can't do a honest days work and they will do whatever is necessary to get their "fix. " Therefore traditional public health methods to reach addicts and convince them to stop using drugs will not work.

If the pick-up and drop-off situation at Bel Air Elementary has been resolved, why are so many parents dropping off and picking up? It all started with the opening of school this past August, the first new academic year under a new regimen for deciding which students walk and which get bus rides to school as part of an ostensible cost-cutting measure. At Bel Air Elementary, a lot of students who had been given bus rides in the past were obliged to walk, and many parents decided to drive them to school instead.
