If every dog has its day, yesterday belonged to Houston, a 5-month-old stray who went home with a new family and mended leg.The black mutt underwent orthopedic surgery Tuesday -- a week after a Baltimore Zoo employee discovered him limping through Druid Hill Park. Houston spent Tuesday night in the Chesapeake Veterinary Referral Center, where a $1,000 procedure was performed at no cost to his new Severna Park family.Zoo workers often stumble on stray cats and dogs, but Houston, they say, was different.

A gun shot fired during a chase whizzed several hundred feet through the Glen Burnie air Friday night police said, before lodging in a wall just four feet above a sleeping five year old. Anne Arundel County police said the incident started just before 10 p.m. when a 27-year-old man was approached by an armed man in the 7900 block of Gentle Breeze Court. The victim ran away and was chased by the gunman, who fired multiple shots, police said. One of the bullets flew across the street and went through the front window of a home in the 400 block of Secluded Post Circle, police said, only coming to rest when it struck a wall above where the young child was sleeping.

The fur may soon be flying in the County Council chambers over a proposal to license cats, just as dogs have been licensed for years.County Councilwoman Maureen Lamb, sponsor of the legislation, said she expects howls of protest from cat owners. "We do have a problem along those lines, because they will object to the fees," said the Annapolis Democrat.The measure would charge $30 for an unspayed or unneutered dog or cat and $4 for an altered pet, with discounts for veterans, the disabled and senior citizens.

She stumbled up to my porch Saturday evening and collapsed in a fluffy little heap next to the garbage can.I was getting out of the car when my neighbor's children found her. We clustered around in a solemn circle, staring at the bloody gash behind her right ear and the crooked way she held her paw.Nobody seemed to know where the tawny, white-flecked kitten with the sad eyes came from. A couple living down the street recalled seeing her around a week ago. She was just another victim of the streets.

The issue is Bill Ripken, who, if you can believe it, doesn't want to be called Billy anymore because . . .What? It makes him seem less mature?Look, if maturity were the determining factor in deciding your name, Bill Ripken could go by Wayne or Garth and star in his own movie, dude. Bill's World would do as well.But the issue isn't Bill/Billy's name. It's him. The thing about young Bill is that people either love him or hate him. And with good cause.Some suggest that the only reason he's in the big leagues at all is because of his last name and certain influential relatives who share it. These people say the Orioles are stuck with him because if they dump Bill, then brother Cal, in a deep snit, takes off when his contract ends this year.

He was a stray from the mean streets of Hampden, with a soft spot for belly rubs that hinted at better days in the past. She was an upscale shop cat who spent her days napping in a sunny window on the Avenue. He spotted her there one day last month, snoozing among the blow-up pink flamingos and eye shadow cases. He fell in love. Since then, says Debra Stone, owner of Kiss N' Makeup on 36th Street, this white and gray tom cat has parked himself on the sidewalk in front of the store each afternoon at four o'clock, singing to his love, Mrs. Puff.

Participants will also learn how to care for colonies of community cats and working with neighbors to address cat issues.

I would like to give praise and thanks to the Laurel spay-neuter-release program, the staff at Spay Now Animal Surgery and to a few great neighbors for helping and saving ferals. I have been taking care of some ferals for about four years; they were living under a complex that is in the middle of a tear down. I kept them fed, area clean and comfortable. The spay-neuter team heard about this and came. At first I resisted and probably several times throughout, but don't! They know exactly what they are doing with the best intentions and ease for the animals.

My new book concerns the countercultural views of today's progressive Democrats. This is not your father's liberalism, and it is certainly far removed from the local Democratic Party I was exposed to as a young kid growing up in Arbutus. That Democratic Party was blue collar in orientation and pretty conservative to boot. Its platform was pro-labor, pro-life, pro-gun, and it was led by small businessmen - many of whom were longtime chairmen of legislative committees in the Maryland General Assembly.

Annapolis police are investigating the early Friday morning shooting of a 23-year-old man while he was running from a dispute, police said. Police said that it is possible that Dejuan Jacarter Hill of Annapolis was the victim of a stray bullet. He was in the 900 block of President Street and told them he was with a group of people nearby in the 1100 block of Madison Street when another man approached them and started talking with someone in the group. The conversation "escalated," according to a police spokesman, and both of those people reached into their pockets, leading others in the group to scatter.

As the Arab Spring unfolded in Egypt and other countries in the Middle East, Turkey was held out as a model for how Islam and democracy could co-exist. This week's massive civil unrest in Turkey, erupting over the destruction of the Gezi Park in Istanbul's center, raises the broader question of whether that model is viable. The response to the protests has been harsh. Police liberally used tear gas and water hoses in a counterproductive attempt to quell the unrest. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was dismissive of the protesters' demands and, showing his characteristic pugilism (he is a former boxer)

Washington. -- Several public school systems are starting late, forcing parents to seek day care and children to seek alternative sources of free condoms.For the fifth time in 10 years Chicago's schools opened late, a disruption the teachers union might face less placidly if about half the teachers with school-age children did not send them to private schools. New York's schools will open in a few weeks, maybe. Their problem is asbestos, as explained in a New Yorker magazine editorial that combines proper indignation with obtuseness.

In a recent article on gun control hearings in Annapolis ("Opinions differ on Md. gun controls," Feb. 7), Sonia Mangum of Stevensville is quoted as saying, in opposition to limits of the ammunition capacity in gun magazines, "If I am under duress, I am going to be missing and may not have time to reload. " She presents more of an argument why the capacity of magazines should be limited. How many of her bullets are being fired? How many are missing? Where are the bullets from those missed shots going?

Since the start, these Orioles have been wildly unpredictable -- and I mean that in a good way -- which is why they will go down as one of the most lovable teams in Baltimore sports lore. But there have been a few constants for a team that probably had to play name games once a week to stay familiar with an endless parade of new faces. There was Buck Showalter, the manager who has mostly made all the right moves. There was Adam Jones, who brings toughness and swagger every night.
