As a life-long Episcopalian and pledging member of my church, I've got some questions about the switch of Christ the King Anglican Church to Christ the King Catholic Church ("Anglican parish in Towson switches to Catholicism," June 25). One point, conspicuously absent in Jamie Smith Hopkins ' otherwise excellent report, was the question of birth control. Rev. Edward Meeks is married, but at age 64 the question of reproduction is moot. However, with so many young parishioners at Christ the King, what will the transfer to Catholicism mean in terms of these matters?

Ray Rice is not the only NFL player currently dealing with a suspension. Unless you have been living under a rock, you have heard by now that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted for child abuse after taking a switch to his 4-year-old child's back, buttocks and legs. In response to the indictment Mr. Peterson, like Mr. Rice, was suspended, then reinstated and then suspended again from playing. Mr. Peterson denies that what he did was abuse. He defends himself, says he was simply disciplining a child and that, yes, he did get carried away in that discipline.

My mother was a child abuser. I was, too. In fact, growing up, pretty much every parent I knew abused their kids. Or so many of Adrian Peterson's critics would have you believe. Mr. Peterson, a star of the Minnesota Vikings, was arrested recently for child abuse after hitting his 4-year-old son with a switch. A "switch," for those who don't know, is a long twig. I should know, having been on the receiving end of quite a few. When no switch was available, mom was also known to employ a section of the orange plastic track from my Hot Wheels.

The incoming Cecil County executive's decision to switch her party registration from Republican to independent Thursday has become a major flashpoint at the state GOP convention in Howard County this weekend, exposing a gaping split in party ranks. Tari Moore, who was elected Nov. 6 as Cecil's first executive under charter government, confirmed Friday that she had changed her registration -- less than four weeks after winning election under the Republican banner and with financial support from the state GOP. Moore said she would give a full explanation of her reasons when she is worn in Monday.

Del. Don Dwyer said Saturday that his announcement earlier this week that he is considering changing his affiliation from Republican to Democratic is no joke and that he plans to seek re-election regardless of his party. The Anne Arundel County lawmaker sent out a news release this week that he may launch a movement called "Operation DINO" -- for Democrats in name only -- to encourage Republicans in heavily Democratic counties to re-register to defeat "hard left liberals" in Democratic primaries.

In “The Change-Up,” out Friday, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds switch bodies. If you could body-switch with one celebrity, who would it be? UFC champ Jon Jones (brother of Ravens player Arthur Jones). He's smart, charming and good-looking. He hits action-figure-style moves in a fight. And he manages to catch muggers in his spare time. Who wouldn't want to be a real-life superhero? - Luke Broadwater, managing editor, b Keith Richards. I've always wondered what immortality felt like.

Orioles switch-hitting  catcher Matt Wieters was the hero of Sunday's 2-1 win over the Nationals with his two-run homer in the eighth inning. And while it continued Wieters' domination of left-handed pitching this season, it was just his second homer from the right side of the plate. Wieters' split stats are incredibly intriguing. He's hitting .413 against left-handed pitching -- 215 points higher than his average against right-handed pitchers, even though eight of his 10 homers came from the left side.

At times during Saturday night's game, No. 5 Johns Hopkins elected to defend No. 10 Maryland by poling two of the three starting midfielders in senior Drew Snider and junior John Haus. The intent was to force redshirt sophomore midfielder Mike Chanenchuk and junior attackman Billy Gribbin to dodge and initiate the offense. The Terps countered by replacing Gribbin with junior Kevin Cooper, and the move worked as he recorded a season-high two goals and added an assist in a 9-6 victory over the Blue Jays at Homewood Field in Baltimore.

In what on the surface seems like a remarkable turnaround, a number of conservative Republican Senate candidates this year are supporting a proposal to expand access to birth control by making it available without a prescription as an over-the-counter medication. Wider access to birth control traditionally has been a Democratic issue, so Republicans' sudden embrace of it seems almost too good to be true. Unfortunately, it is. This year four GOP Senate candidates in close races against Democratic incumbents have announced their support for over-the-counter access to birth control: Cory Gardener of Colorado; Thom Tillis of North Carolina; Ed Gillespie of Virgina and Mike McFadden of Minnesota.

While the Johns Hopkins football team ushers in a new season, Ryan Rice is also grasping something new: his position. For the previous three years, Rice lined up at cornerback, where he made 87 tackles, intercepted four balls, and broke up 12 passes in his career. Last fall, he had a career-high three interceptions and added 27 tackles and four pass break-ups. Those numbers contributed to him being named a second-team preseason All-American by D3football.com. But this year, Rice is moving to safety - a switch he has embraced.

Dez Wells took pride in wearing No. 32 during his first two years at Maryland, becoming only the second Terp to take the number in the nearly 20 years since former star Joe Smith left College Park as the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. Going into his senior year, Wells will finally get a chance to do something he's been thinking about since high school - wear No. 44 to honor the memory of a former Amateur Athletic Union teammate who was killed in a 2010 car crash. Though he is still listed as No. 32 on the Maryland roster, Wells said Friday that he planned to make the switch for the team's first season in the Big Ten. As members of the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based CP3 All-Stars, Wells and Detrique Baker, a skinny 6-foot-9 center who had moved to Raleigh from Texas while in high school, talked about playing college basketball together.

Since Maryland health exchange officials decided to replace their troubled website with technology used in Connecticut, critics have asked whether it would be cheaper and less risky to join the federal website. Democratic U.S. Rep. John Delaney, among the exchange's most persistent critics, said discussions with "numerous parties inside the government and in the private sector led me to believe that switching to the federal option was a cost-effective option that would help more Marylanders receive health care.

Football fans would be aghast at an umpire who moved the goal posts back while the game was still in play. So, it's no wonder city teachers are up in arms over a school system decision at the very end of the year raising the bar that determines whether they get a pay raise or not. The teachers union calls it a classic bait-and-switch and is demanding the issue be renegotiated. Given that the last-minute change could significantly reduce the chances that even very good teachers move up the salary scale, they are right to do so. If the goal of recruiting and retaining excellent teachers is to mean anything, the process for rewarding effectiveness in the classroom has got to be both transparent and fair.

After having twins four years ago, the former marketing manager for New York-based International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. was determined to press on with a career, even one that came with lengthy commutes and long workdays. But getting back into the workforce proved difficult and came with unappealing trade-offs. The Bel Air woman chose a path taken by more mothers today, choosing to stay home with the kids - reversing a decades-long trend.

They both wanted to switch Aug. 29. But WJZ-TV insisted that ABC honor its contract by providing six months' notice before switching stations.Story, 1D
