Editor: Your two stories in the editorials on Wednesday, June 22, are right on target. The first one about lessons unlearned never ceases to amaze me how the county government never listens or learns from past experiences. In reference to the reality check needed story, this one has also been proved over and over again. Can't believe it but you are right again! Thanks for pointing this out for all to see. Nothing gets accomplished when it is needed …only if it is politically correct or in a line to help the ones running for office.

Thousands of miles on the road this summer and fall have afforded me the opportunity to observe a variety of political ads from across the spectrum. Herewith, observations from the heartland: I assume the relentless Democratic campaign to demonize the conservative Koch Brothers and their "Americans for Prosperity" organization has been poll tested, but I still don't get it. Driving negatives against someone (or something) that few people recognize violates a core tenet of political advertising.

Tom Clancy is not the rough-tough human tornado that his gripping, action-powered thrillers might suggest.The multimillionaire king of espionage novels that translate into blockbuster movies ("The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games" and now "Clear and Present Danger") weeps at sad scenes onstage or on the screen, counsels children in the throes of terminal cancer and will not, under any circumstances, allow himself to be coaxed or cajoled onto a roller coaster."Just thinking about a roller coaster makes [ill]

INDIANAPOLIS -- It wasn't long before Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck discovered the location of Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb . Once Luck found Webb, he began regularly peppering the veteran cornerback with a series of short-to-intermediate passes to his receivers. Webb allowed no touchdown passes or deep completions, but Luck completed several passes on him for first downs during the Colts' 20-13 win on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. That included the bulk of wide receiver Reggie Wayne 's seven catches for 77 yards along with a 16-yard completion to wide receiver Hakeem Nicks in the fourth quarter two plays before Luck rushed for a 13-yard touchdown.

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.

I agree with the article in "GOP rallies against earmarks" (Nov. 17), and I urge the Maryland delegation in Washington to get behind this effort. I have always thought that if you had a favored project that was a good and important project, it should be presented on it's own, and in the light of day, for the other members to vote on. I don't understand how anyone can defend the earmark practice. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said "I am not going, personally, to back off of bringing stuff back to Neveda.

Update: Kohl's is the latest retailer to announce it is opening doors at midnight on Black Friday in Baltimore. And the retailer says it will remain open 24 hours on Friday.

Of the 12 Johns Hopkins players who have caught passes thus far, more than half of them are wide receivers. In fact, the top four in receptions and yards are wideouts. But in just four games, sophomores Quinn Donaldson and Bradley Munday have emerged as senior quarterback Braden Anderson's favorite targets. The 6-foot, 190-pound Donaldson leads the No. 10 Blue Jays (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference) in catches (18), yards (301) and receiving touchdowns (three)

It's not every day a helicopter lands near a high school football field to drop off a major college football coach on a recruiting trip. Thursday afternoon, Penn State coach James Franklin made such a splashy entrance at Woodlawn to see a couple of Franklin's top prospects. While recruiting by helicopter is nothing new for the Nittany Lions coach, it was something new for the Franklin high school players he was there to see. Indians coach Anthony Burgos said Franklin was looking at senior offensive lineman Patrick Allen and junior wide receiver Steven Smothers.

Eight years ago, Dian Corneliussen-James had surgeons cut out half of her right lung, a risky procedure she believes saved her life. Though she thinks the surgery saved her from death from metastatic breast cancer , which had spread to her lung, she said she is "terrified to go off" the drug, Faslodex, that doctors say could be keeping her alive. Her survival has prompted doctors and others to call her and patients with metastatic breast cancer like her "outliers" because they don't know why some patients with the incurable disease live a long time.

Several months ago, Baltimore Inspector General Robert H. Pearre Jr. quietly decided to dedicate an agent solely to investigating workers' compensation and disability fraud within Baltimore's police and fire departments — and this week investigators announced charges against a former city officer accused of bilking taxpayers out of more than $30,000. It's an effort Pearre plans to continue in future months, city officials said. Pearre has negotiated a deal with the police and fire departments to fund a full-time position in his office digging into what he calls "uniform fraud" — a move he expects to "bear significant fruit," he wrote in a recent report.

It's shortly after 1 p.m. on a Saturday in Druid Hill Park. Several dozen young people, many decked out in trim-fitting athletic gear, gather under a pavilion. A plastic storage bin is stocked with cans of Miller Lite and Bud Light. Two grills are smoking burgers and hot dogs. Justin Timberlake's song "Mirrors" mixes with picnic table chatter as a Frisbee zings back and forth during a game of Polish horseshoes. These people have all volunteered to have a good time. Since last February, Volunteering Untapped has held a volunteering event every month with a nonprofit, immediately followed by drinks and networking.
