Flights from Baltimore to Cancun will be offered under the Southwest Airlines banner starting in August, as the airline continues to rebrand routes formerly flown under AirTran Airways. The airline recently announced similar changes on flights from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport to destinations such as Aruba, Montego Bay and Nassau. Southwest acquired AirTran in May 2011. Flights from BWI to Cancun will come under Southwest starting Aug. 10, the company said. Flights to Aruba, Montego Bay and Nassau begin July 1.

Two jailers sue over firing for hair incident FREDERICK -- Two Frederick County jailers who were fired for forcing a female inmate to have her hair extensions cut have sued the county government, claiming they were wrongly terminated. The Frederick News-Post reports that former Sgt. Andrew Adelsberger is seeking $500,000 in damages, while former Cpl. Samuel Stottlemyer just wants his job back. Both were fired after inmate Sherelle Showell was pepper-sprayed and placed in a restraint chair so that a nurse could cut off her hair extensions after she refused to remove them last November.

What's so wrong with palm oil, from the palm trees that bear fruit, not coconuts? Well, if you listen to environmentalists and animal-rights advocates along with nutrition and health experts, they'll tell you it's something close to poison. Once the United States and other Western countries began condemning and banning trans-fat oils a few years ago, palm oil became a popular substitute. You can find it in shampoo, lipstick, soap and a host of snack and other foods, including some ketchups, margarine, chewing gum, candy bars and cooking oil. Oil-palm trees, as they're called, are grown primarily in Indonesia and Malaysia, and that's where the problems begin.

" Bakery owner Charles DeBaufre Jr. has made a ton of money selling Berger cookies. He should have been ahead of the game and gotten rid of the trans-fat in his product. I stopped buying anything with trans-fats in it 10 years ago - including his cookies - and I am sure there are many others like me.

If the Food and Drug Administration goes ahead with its proposal to eliminate trans fats from processed food, it could create a sticky situation for Baltimore-area sweets makers, including the company that produces famed Berger cookies. The FDA will announce a final decision on banning trans fats from restaurants and packaged products on Jan. 7, but manufacturers are already preparing themselves. The baker of the Berger cookies has tasted the future and found it lacking.

Oysterback, Maryland. -- In the full moon, the flowering peach trees look like luminous ghosts. Behind the wheel of the battered van, Duc Tran Swann sits beside the Blue Crab Tavern, surveying the sleeping village by the river. Freshly hatched from a fashionable New York art school, she has a silver stud in her nose and a wild nest of dark hair. Quickly, she shifts into gear and rolls into town, following the map on the --board until she comes to the yellow Nanticoke where her father lives; his name is on the mailbox and he is asleep inside, oblivious of a daughter he has never seen, doesn't even know he has, with a woman he thinks has been dead since the fall of Saigon.

A 911 DISPATCHER listened last week as Maria D. Rivas argued with her husband Xuang Ky "Tony" Tran. As Mr. Tran loaded and cocked the .357 magnum handgun he had bought that day, the dispatcher tried to persuade Ms. Rivas to leave the room. She tried to keep the woman talking, to buy time, but to no avail. "Stop it! No! No! No!" were the last words the dispatcher heard before two "pops" of gunfire. When police kicked down the door of the couple's second-story condominium in Columbia, Mr. Tran had already shot his wife and himself.

When the Irish-born novelist Colum McCann sits before a blank page, he launches himself into a vast, empty space. He's surrounded by fog on all sides, so he can't tell if his vehicle is right side up or upside down. The craft he's maneuvering is clunky, and the throttle sticks. No wonder the National Book Award-winning author felt compelled to write "TransAtlantic" about three fraught, historic journeys to Ireland in the 19th and 20th centuries. The first chronicles aviators John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown, who in June 1919 made the first nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean.

After buying Fractured Prune Doughnuts in January, Dan Brinton switched to an oil without trans fats to fry the chain's hand-dipped glazed doughnuts. "It's a little more expensive, but it's certainly worth it as far as I'm concerned," said Brinton, CEO of the growing Ocean City -based chain, on Thursday. Earlier in the day, the Food and Drug Administration moved to virtually eliminate trans fat, an artificially created artery-clogging substance, from Americans' diets. The move follows a massive effort by food makers and restaurant chains to remove the substance over the past decade, as consumers become more educated about risks and vote for healthier alternatives with their wallets.
