Dawn Root's life took a serendipitous turn two years ago, one that eventually brought her to talk about her mother's death as a way to fight domestic violence. The Glen Burnie resident spoke as an advocate and survivor Tuesday at the fifth annual candlelight vigil held by HopeWorks, a Howard County agency that serves victims of sexual, dating and domestic violence. The event, held in Columbia, marked October's designation as Domestic Violence Awareness Month across the country. Root told the gathering of 40 people wearing purple ribbons that she is on a mission to speak to audiences across the Baltimore area "since living in the darkness wasn't serving me, and I realized it was time to leave negativity behind.

Stores are stocked with costumes and giant bags of candy in preparation for the droves of children who will go trick-or-treating at the end of the month. But hand in hand with the fun side of Halloween is the spooky side, and Harford County is not exempt from local ghost stories. Lisa Ryan opened Havre de Haunts Tours & Paranormal Research last year to investigate and share those stories. Through Havre de Haunts, Ryan offers a 1½-hour guided walking tour of Havre de Grace that includes a history of the town as well as local ghost stories, all of which are true, Ryan claims.

I believe that your Jan. 26 issue says it all. That you would put the governor's proposal to raise taxes and stick the county with $10 million of pension money on Page 13 while some argument on the name of a street on Page 1 speaks volumes on what this paper is about. Pete Berlowitz Columbia

I am writing to address your week of April 12 front page story about Jimmy Brooks and "The Big Game. " It should have been dubbed or named "Glory Dazes" and/or "Glory Haze. " There is a glaring problem with your feel good and/or prima donna story. He earned a full baseball scholarship during his freshman season, but failed to graduate. Too bad he squandered his opportunity. Oh, well. Party on, Sergeant Brooks. Dan Lewis Laurel

I am very disappointed at the residents of Sparrows point and Edgemere, my neighbors ("Lawsuit takes on steel mill's pollution; Residents, environmentalists want Sparrows Point owners to rid mill of its toxic brew," July 11), and especially the retired workers at the mill. They were all OK when the Point was in its heyday, and they all had good jobs to raise their families. No one said a word, because they were all working. I remember when I started down at the Point. Retirees would say to me, "Keep that mill running, so I can get my pension check."

Regarding yet another article in your paper about the Ray Rice incident, The Sun is like a dog with a bone - it just won't give it up ( "Looking for silver lining in the ugliness of the Rice case," Sept. 27). Does anyone remember that the victim of this violence married the perpetrator? Must the NFL and the Ravens take all of the blame? How about a mention that our daughters should be taught not to slap men or anyone else? Confrontation can cause violence. Not that the punch was deserved.

Talking with Boog Powell can make you hungry. By the time the former Orioles star and current barbecue master has rhapsodized about the pleasures of, say, pit beef with horseradish sauce, homemade buttermilk biscuits and grilled asparagus with rosemary, chances are your mouth will be watering. "Oh, I love food," says the 6-foot-4 former slugger, laughing heartily. "I enjoy eating a good meal, whether it's steamed crabs, or collard greens and cornbread. … But my favorite is barbecue.

The three-story brick townhouse at 115 W. Lee St. is one of the largest in Baltimore's Otterbein neighborhood. A former rectory for the long-since-gone St. Joseph Catholic Church, this end-of-group home has been meticulously restored by its current owners and is for sale for just under $1.3 million. "This house is on one of the most beautiful streets downtown," said listing agent James Baldwin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. "Lee Street is classic, tree-lined and broader than most [in the area.]

By now, just about everyone knows how much unwanted publicity the NFL has received recently as it deals with player misconduct. So I want thank reporter Aaron Wilson for choosing to report something positive regarding NFL players. Last month, former Ravens nose tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu donated a kidney to his younger brother ( "Former Ravens DL Ma'ake Kemoeatu successfully donated kidney to his brother, Chris Kemoeatu ," Sept. 16). Chris had been experiencing kidney pain since he was in eighth grade, but he fought through the pain to play out his dream in the NFL. It wasn't until after the 2011 season that the pain became too much and Chris retired.

  You can only shake your head in wonderment at cable TV when an ESPN show host gets it wrong as to what's in an investigative report that his own channel just published. And worse, it's on one of the biggest stories in the history of professional sports. That happened with Bob Ley on ESPN yesterday as he reported the results of a probe by the channel's "Outside the Lines" team into the Ray Rice elevator attack on his then-fiancée and what is looking more each day like a cover-up on the part of the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens.

The Associated Press has dispatched its annual story on the current cost of giving the gifts enumerated in "The Twelve Days of Christmas. " It is, you well know, among the holiday cliches to be deplored . The economic information, meretricious as it is, is generated each year by PNC Wealth Management, which thus gets mentioned prominently. But even more than a free ad for a bank, the story is in its own category a kind of Platonic ideal in American journalism: a light holiday feature that is guaranteed to arrive and which requires absolutely no imagination or initiative.

Imagine my surprise this morning when I pulled up Deadspin.com and saw that the sports website's main image was a fan climbing the left-field foul pole at Camden Yards. Now that's something you don't see every day. Apparently, two Orioles fans emailed Deadspin claiming they somehow got locked inside Camden Yards during a rain-out and romped around the beautiful ballpark as if it was their personal playground. They climbed the foul pole, slid across the infield tarp like it was a Slip 'n Slide, made grilled cheese sandwiches at Boog's and drank themselves silly with stolen Bud Light.

There was a time not so long ago when the NFL seemed like it was coated in Teflon. No matter who did wrong or how badly the incident seemed to damage the credibility of the sport, the NFL would crank up the image machine, put it on spin cycle and emerge with its reputation and runaway revenues intact. Not anymore. The Ray Rice domestic violence scandal, which spun out of control when the infamous inside-elevator video became public 12 days ago, continues to damage the credibility of everyone it touches and still could be the undoing of embattled commissioner Roger Goodell.

I joined Christine Brennan, of "USA Today," and Howard Kurtz on "Media Buzz" today to talk about TMZ and the performance of mainstream media in covering -- or not covering -- the Ray Rice story. I was at first surpised to hear Brennan, who knows this turf as well as anyone, say an argument could be made that it is "the biggest controversy to ever hit a U.S. sports league. " But having thought about it since, I think she could be right. #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }
