In your edition of March 20, your reader Greg Clemmer states that to cite Charles Stanley's Confederate military service is "politically correct. " Well, if political correctness is what you wish to see, you need look no further than Article III of the federal Constitution, which describes levying war against the United States as a criminal act. That's what Charles Stanley did by joining the Confederate Army, regardless of his "heritage," his motives and the good works that he did later.

The recent revelation of Charles H. Stanley's years of service (1862-65) in the Confederate Army - and his presumed support of the institution of slavery - cannot be overlooked in the selection of a name for the new Laurel library. The fact that the site adjoins Emancipation Park, a focus of activities involving the African-American residents of the Grove, greater Laurel and Prince George's County, is both ironic and significant. The park is the site of the annual celebration of Emancipation Day, which marked the end of slavery in America.

I find it unfortunate that the Prince George's County Library Board believes it needs to remove Charles Stanley's name from Laurel's newly expanded and renovated library when it reopens. Citing Stanley's Confederate military experience - he served as a private in Company B, 1st Maryland Cavalry, CS - -is not only political correctness run amuck, it ignores and defies the post war contributions this man made to his community, his state and the United States for nearly a half century after Appomattox.  After the war, Charles Stanley returned to his community to farm and teach school, studying law in his spare time, being admitted to the Maryland Bar in 1869.

As a Laurel resident, I read with great interest the Feb. 20 article in the Laurel Leader and the letter to the editor from Lindsey Baker Feb. 27, regarding the Laurel Library branch retaining the Charles Stanley name after a new building is completed. In addition to his public service, Mr. Stanley was an American Confederate Civil War veteran, having served as a private in Company B of the First Regiment, Maryland Cavalry from 1862 to 1865 (Archives of Maryland 2002). In their letter, the Laurel Historical Society references how important "it is to understand the history of our community, in order to create a better future.

A decade-old loan forgiveness program with Morgan Stanley will move forward Wednesday after Baltimore's spending panel agreed to give the company more time to meet its job-creation goals. The Board of Estimates, controlled by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, approved modifications to the plan without discussion. The city and the New York-based investment bank agreed in 2003 to expand an operations center in Baltimore based on economic development incentives. The city agreed to loan the company $3.25 million - half of which could be forgiven - on the condition that Morgan Stanley created 1,500 jobs by 2018.
