Andy Joyce drove his tow truck just after midnight to a West Baltimore service call, where he met a mother and small child waiting with their disabled vehicle. It was Nov. 1, 2010, and the 23-year-old had only worked a few weeks for Gordon Kelly's Quick Response towing company. It was the end of his shift. The mother and child got a ride from someone as Joyce lowered his truck's bed to tow the Dodge Durango near Mosher Street and Druid Hill Avenue. About two hours later, a passerby noticed the truck's door open, engine running, and Joyce slumped inside.

Anne Arundel County police say a Glen Burnie teenager who had been missing since Friday has been found unharmed. Brandon Lamont Hinton, 14, left his home on Continental Drive on Friday morning and didn't show up for school that day. Police investigated Brandon's disappearance as a runaway, but classified the case as "critical" because of his age. His family posted fliers around Glen Burnie over the weekend. Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said Monday that Brandon had been found and was safe, but offered no other details.

Inc., owner of The Daily Times in Salisbury, filed a lawsuit in Worcester County Circuit Court to force Ocean City to release the name of a 17-year-old drowning victim from Parkville. A number of the newspaper's readers have already expressed outrage at the litigation, with one letter writer describing it as "wrong, just plain wrong" and others questioning what possible public interest is served by knowing the name, particularly given that the victim's family has specifically asked that it not be released.

In the first month of Baltimore's tough new youth curfew, about four kids a night were picked up by police - a smaller-than-expected number that supporters say shows the law is working. City officials say the figures - which show that police issued 120 curfew violations in the program's first 30 days - indicate that parents and children have gotten the message that young people need to be inside at night. "The message has gotten out," said City Councilman Brandon M. Scott, who sponsored the curfew bill.

Blood smeared the white door and concrete slab outside a rowhouse where a teenager was gunned down early Thursday, the second 17-year-old killed in Baltimore in as many days. The killings of Keith Powell in Northeast Baltimore early Thursday and Adrian Gilliard in West Baltimore on Tuesday night pushed the number of youths killed this year to a dozen. The total has surpassed the count from all of last year, when 10 juveniles were killed. Baltimore police and city leaders have spent the last several months developing laws and programs — including a more restrictive curfew — aimed at protecting African-American youths from violence.

A contributing factor in the chronic sleepiness of teens is daylight saving time. When daylight saving time is in effect, if you rise at 6 a.m., it is really 5 a.m. It's no wonder they are tired. Daylight saving time is an archaic custom that is intended to fool us into moving our schedule an hour earlier. With the phasing out of incandescent lighting, it serves little useful purpose in the 21st century. Why not at least return to standard time when school begins? If we let teens sleep until the sun rises, they may not be so drowsy or cranky.
