I agree with the Safe Surrender program ("Hundreds seek Safe Surrender," June 20). First of all, it provided a comfortable environment for the people with nonviolent crimes to get their lives back on track. Second of a, it provides a safe haven for people. Finally, everybody who turned themselves in received " favorable consideration." The program gave everyone a chance to do what is right and make better lives for themselves. People will have a second chance. One of the people mentioned in The Sun, Nakia Parrine, was wanted on drug charges for about four years and finally decided to turn herself in so she could get a job to support her family.

Lee Hull didn't need any convincing that his Morgan State defense was physical. What he had been waiting for was proof that the unit could stop opposing offenses. Hull got what he wanted in the Bears' 28-3 rout of Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday. A defense that had surrendered a combined 60 points and 53 first downs in back-to-back losses allowed just a first-quarter field goal and 19 first downs overall. After the Bulldogs (0-2) went 69 yards on their first drive to convert a 37-yard field goal, they had only one longer series, and that ended in a fumble Morgan State (1-2)

Initially it was simply amusing that those proudly sporting the slogan 'Freedom isn't Free' could, at the same time, want to restrict others' freedom of religion: witness the furor over the Muslim community center in New York. But now it's simply absurd; many of your readers seem willfully bent on miseducating themselves and anyone who will listen. Protesting against the community center/mosque because it is initiated by Muslims makes about as much sense as not flying the airline which carried the terrorists that fateful 9/11.

Morgan State's 0-2 start has been punctuated by similar three-point losses to Eastern Michigan and Holy Cross. Another similarity involves the defense's inability to preserve leads. The Bears had a 28-21 advantage with 5:30 left in the third quarter before Eastern Michigan scored the final 10 points. They held a 26-23 lead with 3:39 left in the fourth period until Holy Cross punched in the game-winning touchdown on the final play. But coach Lee Hull said the defense's play has not sounded any alarms yet. “It's a new system, and our guys are still learning,” Hull said Tuesday morning during his weekly conference call organized by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

On the last day of a program for people wanted for nonviolent crimes to turn themselves in, more than 80 people were already in line at 9 a.m. The program, which kicked off Wednesday at the New Metropolitan Baptist Church on McCulloh Street in West Baltimore, provided a chance for 985 people with outstanding warrants to turn themselves in and aimed to reduce some of the 40,000 outstanding warrants in the city. "It's been an overwhelming success," said Deputy U.S. Marshal David Lutz, spokesman for the agency.

Unconditional surrender. That's what House Speaker John Boehner has called it if Republicans go along with President Barack Obama's position that the government shutdown must be halted and the debt limit raised before negotiations over their grievances can commence. It's not difficult to see how he and his fire-breathing tea party allies might see it that way. Just as kidnappers don't normally release their hostages before the ransom demands are met, the hard-liners in the GOP believe this is the moment of maximum leverage when they can extract the most from their adversaries.

For nearly four years, Nakia Parrine had difficulty getting a job to support her family. Wanted on minor drug charges, she said she constantly looked over her shoulder, aware that any interaction with police might result in her arrest and hours at Central Booking. But in less than a few hours Wednesday, that was all behind her. As part of a program called Safe Surrender, she turned herself in, got booked, faced a judge, had the charges dropped, and began the expungement process.

The Adam LaRoche dilemma for the Orioles is an interesting one to me. But apparently, at least from those who responded to my Twitter account Monday, it's pretty simple: Most of those readers believe the Orioles need to sign LaRoche because he fills the Orioles' two primary needs: he plays a great first base and has a powerful bat. Any other variation is just an excuse. Most of you don't want to hear anything else. What I wrote Monday was that one of the things that gives - or should give - the Orioles pause is that if they sign LaRoche they will surrender their first round pick in the 2013 draft, which is the 24th overall.

It had to be a military first.News reports out of the Persian Gulf war zone told of an Iraqi soldier spinning around and around with his hands in the air trying to attract the attention of the pilot of a small plane flying above him.Only it wasn't a plane. It was a pilotless drone, called an RPV (remotely piloted vehicle), with a television camera mounted in its belly.That story -- and a second one about 40 Iraqis trying to surrender to another RPV -- made its way back to AAI Corp. in Cockeysville, where the craft is made.

Former Catonsville doctor William Dando will not face trial for sexual assault allegations after agreeing never to practice medicine in Maryland again. Allegany County prosecutors dropped charges against him Tuesday, citing two factors — the "he said, she said" nature of the case and his decision to surrender his medical license. Dando had been scheduled to stand trial Wednesday in an incident in which a 41-year-old patient said he touched her genitals while treating her for an ear infection at an urgent-care center near Cumberland.

In a little-heralded announcement earlier this week, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons declared that the Syrian government of Bashar Assad had handed over the last 1,300 tons of its declared chemical weapons stockpile to international inspectors. News reports indicate the Syrian stocks of nerve gas and other chemical agents were loaded aboard U.S. ships that will transport them out to sea where they will be destroyed. At a time when the world's attention has been focused on the escalating sectarian conflict spilling across Syria's border into Iraq, the news was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise grim situation.

An 8-7 double-overtime loss to the Rochester Rattlers a week ago left the Chesapeake Bayhawks with their fifth defeat in six games. But the play of the defense planted a few seeds for hope. The unit allowed a season low in goals and also limited a Rochester offense that had scored 18 goals in a rout of the Florida Launch on June 1. Chesapeake goalkeeper Kip Turner, an Annapolis native and Severn School graduate, made a season-high 18 saves. “Rochester scored 18 goals the week before, and we held them to seven through overtime,” Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said during a league-wide conference call on Wednesday.

This may not qualify as good news for Washington College, the Rochester Institute of Technology or Tufts - three of the four teams left in the NCAA Division III tournament - but Salisbury's suffocating defense has gotten stronger courtesy of the return of short-stick defensive midfielder Tim Stone. The senior sat out the first 17 games of the season while battling a hip injury and returned for the first time to play in the team's 12-6 victory over Frostburg State in a Capital Athletic Conference tournament semifinal on April 26. Adding Stone to pair with freshman Brendan Bromwell and back up sophomores Preston Dabbs and Davis Anderson gives the Sea Gulls (20-1)

UMBC's defense picked an inopportune time to play its worst game of the season. The Retrievers surrendered a season-worst 17 goals in a two-goal defeat at High Point on Saturday. It was the biggest offensive display for the Panthers (6-2) in their two-year history as a Division I program. UMBC coach Don Zimmerman said the defense didn't seem to have the ability to match the energy demonstrated by High Point. “We looked tired, lethargic, flat, whatever you want to call it,” he said Monday morning.
