After two very expensive (to taxpayers) trials, Roger Clemens is found guilty of nothing ("Jury acquits ex-pitcher of all 6 charges," June 19). When will theU.S. Department of Justice stop this nonsense and waste of our resources with this grandstanding and justification of a job? F. Cordell, Lutherville

A tropical cyclone named Edouardo on Sunday strengthened into the fourth hurricane of the 2014 season, but it's not forecast to strike North America. The storm reached Category 2 strength early Monday morning, with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph as of 11 a.m., according to the National Hurricane Center. It is about 655 miles east-southeast of Bermuda. Hurricane center forecasters expect Edouardo could become the year's first major hurricane by Monday night. The last Atlantic tropical cyclone to reach major hurricane status, with winds of at least 111 mph, was Sandy in 2012.

The New York Stock Exchange will purchase renewable electricity certificates from a Constellation Energy subsidiary, the company announced Wednesday. Constellation NewEnergy Inc. will produce wind energy at certified facilities in the United States to match the approximately 28 million kilowatt-hours used annually by the stock exchange, according to the announcement. By supporting this renewable source of electric power generation, which will displace generation using conventional fuels, the exchange will avoid production of more than 57 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

I read with interest the recent article on the proposed magnetic levitation train running between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore ("Billions lined up for 'maglev,'" Sept. 4). The term, "maglev," is not an obscure high-tech term. It is, at best, something of a portmanteau like "telephone" or "Internet" and every bit as hard for the "average" person to "figure out. " The term is at least 40 years old, so I'm not sure why the "headline writer" felt it necessary to "enclose" the term in "quotes" unless he or she feels that the "majority" of the "readership" is "stupid" which may even be "true" but does not excuse The Sun for dumbing down its content to reach the "lowest common denominator.

My thoughts on a few things that, by themselves, won't make a complete column but will do nicely when combined: First of all: what Hollywood writers' strike? Hollywood writers have been on strike how many days now? Does anybody really miss 'em? There are only three shows that I give a darn about. One is 24, the action-thriller starring Kiefer Sutherland. I'm still hooked on the series, even though last season smacked suspiciously of a recycled product. The second is the bad-cop/worse-cop series The Shield.

Detroit -- WHEN MY colleagues, the reporters and lower level editors of the Detroit Free Press, walked away from their desks at 8 p.m. last Thursday night, I was not with them.They carried their floppy disks and Rolodexes, ready to trade the tools of their profession for picket signs, as another newspaper strike began.I, on the other hand, had more domestic duties to attend to. Early that morning a woman from the day care center that my son attends had called to say that with a temperature of 103degrees, Allen had to leave.

The region's Red Cross chapter says the union representing 50 employees involved in blood drive operations has threatened to strike next Friday if a new contract is not reached. Teamsters Local 311 sent a letter of intent to the Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Blood Services Region warning of a work stoppage, an action the nonprofit agency labeled "irresponsible" and a potential disruption to blood collection operations to aid areas ravaged by Superstorm Sandy. The local, chartered in 1952 and headquartered in Baltimore, did not return requests for comment.

Up to this point, sanctions against Iran have only caused it to accelerate its drive to build a nuclear weapons capability, with the stated goal of wiping out Israel. As long as Russia, China and India trade with Iran and are willing to pay the currently inflated prices for its oil, there will be no cessation of Iran's drive to build a bomb, and any sanctions imposed by the U. S. and its allies will be ineffective. Meanwhile, Israel is living under the threat of annihilation. The window of opportunity is rapidly closing for an effective military strike against Iran.

From a logistical standpoint, Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez hasn't had a particularly stable season. He has dealt with one stint on the disabled list, pitched out of the bullpen once and twice was demoted to the minor leagues as part of the club's continual roster tweaks. If Gonzalez keeps pitching like he did Wednesday in a 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, though, he'll ultimately end up with just one destination next month: The postseason. That's his ultimate goal after an elevator of a season.

The Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University opens its school year this week with about 600 students, 150 faculty members and a new dean. Fred Bronstein, who started on the job in June after six years as president of the St. Louis Symphony, is the 16th person to take the helm since the music conservatory was founded in 1857. His title is different, though. The designation was changed to "dean" from "director," established before the conservatory became affiliated with JHU in 1977, to make Peabody consistent with the university's other academic divisions.

If the first political ad for the general election is any indication, the battle for the governor's mansion may take a negative tone, some political observers say. Democrat Anthony G. Brown released a 30-second TV spot Friday that takes a swipe at his opponent's economic policies, saying Republican Larry Hogan would "take Maryland families backwards" if elected governor. Brown has put at least $23,000 toward airing the ad in the Baltimore market this weekend, according to reports filed with regulatory agencies.

Orioles pitching prospect Mike Wright was one strike away from throwing a no-hitter for Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday night in a 5-2 win over the Durham Bulls. Wright came as close as possible to tossing a no-hitter, allowing a two-out double to Mike Mahtook on a 1-2 count in the ninth inning. Earlier in the inning, shortstop Alexi Casilla committed a throwing error with two outs on a play that could have ended the game. After allowing the double to Mahtook - which also ended Wright's shutout bid - he was replaced by right-hander Brock Huntzinger.

CHICAGO -- After the Orioles opened up their largest division lead in nearly 17 years with a 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, the visiting clubhouse of U.S. Cellular Field was loose. Players sang along to the lyrics of the Zac Brown Band's song, "Free," as it blasted from the speakers after the Orioles -- sparked by a magnificent start from right-hander Chris Tillman -- extended their American League East advantage over the New York Yankees to 8 1/2 games. It's the club's largest lead in the division since Sept.

Longshoremen who went on strike last year at the port of Baltimore claim they are not liable for related losses sustained by their employers, in part because a coastwide labor contract banning such strikes does not apply to them. The claim was made in a federal court filing by Jennifer Stair, an attorney for the International Longshoremen's Association Local 333. The dockworkers union was sued last month by port employers for $3.86 million in damages — the amount arbitrator M. David Vaughn determined the employers lost during the union's three-day strike in October.
