I have no objection to the numbers of people who enjoy the local ritual of tubing on the Gunpowder River. ("Tubing tiff," July 31). I experienced it years ago, and it is a wonderful way to spend a lazy summer afternoon. My wish is that the tubers leave the landscape exactly the way they found it. Many people leave their cans or food wrappers behind, marring the otherwise breathtaking landscape along the Gunpowder. How tough would it be to take along a bag in which to put trash?

Veteran mailman Jeffrey L. Shipley turned his apartment into a repository of pilfered postage, authorities say, as he took letters, magazines, Netflix videos and even a Mother's Day card from the homes on his route. Shipley, who worked at a Postal Service facility in Catonsville, "failed to deliver, embezzled and stole over 20,000 pieces of mail," according to federal charges filed against him last week. He faces one count each of mail theft and delaying the mail. Neither Shipley nor his attorney could be reached for comment.

This week, I received my notice about the monthly street cleaning and I applaud the Mayor's office for rolling out the much needed service but is it enough ( "City street-sweeping expansion to rely on cooperation, not enforcement," March 20)? I bought my home in an up-and-coming community in 2012. I love it there and am looking forward to the growth of the neighborhood. However, I was not prepared for the rat infestation. I seldom use my backyard as I have heard them try to gnaw their way into my home.

The trash bags went out at night within arm's reach of the sidewalk for routine trash collection in Cambridge on the Eastern Shore. The next morning, they were gone. But six times in 1997, police, rather than the trash collector, took them without a search warrant. In a long-established law enforcement practice commonly used in drug and espionage cases, the police sifted through the garbage, hunting for evidence of illegal drugs. They used the cocaine residue they found to get a search warrant for the house.

COLLEGE PARK  - For Maryland running back Wes Brown, part of the process of returning to school after he was arrested following a confrontation with police last summer involved speaking to youth groups about not making the same mistakes he had. That was the "best" part of the process, he said after practice Saturday at Byrd Stadium, but more of a reality check came when Brown returned to his former high school, Good Counsel. For four hours a day, to fully understand what he had lost, he did custodial work.

Baltimore plans to give more than 9,000 households huge plastic trash cans on wheels - complete with tracking devices to prevent theft - under a pilot program that, if successful, could lead to a $10 million citywide expansion. The plan is aimed at fighting both litter and rats. The city's Board of Estimates is expected to approve the $578,000 test venture Wednesday. "Not having a trash can is actually a very big factor in rat infestation," said Valentina Ukwuoma, head of the Bureau of Solid Waste.

First things first: Grantland has a terrific look-back at Hunter S. Thompson's "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved. " I always start the Derby primer with a link to this story -- and by always, I mean I also did it last year -- and this adds even more context to how the story came about. A very popular question I receive from fellow Baltimoreans upon my return to our fair city by the bay is: How does the Derby compare to Preakness? The answer I ended up giving usually went something like this: The Preakness debauchery seems to be compressed into one day and in one spot, the infield, where once upon a time people ran across the portable toilets for sport.

City officials urged patience Wednesday as Baltimore police investigate an officer's conduct after the shooting death of a 13-year-old girl, and the new police commissioner said he hoped the probe would conclude soon. Officer John A. Ward will not face criminal charges in the March death of Monae Turnage, prosecutors said this week, a decision rendered two months ago but not announced to the public. As that investigation began following the shooting, a law enforcement source said police had found the rifle used to kill Turnage in Ward's personal car. State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein declined Wednesday to go beyond remarks that his office lacked information to move ahead with a criminal case against Ward, who was engaged to a half sister of one of the teenage suspects.

Here's the bad news about Sandy Point State Park's new "trash free" program, which had its first real test over the long Memorial Day weekend: Park rangers had to collect 10 to 15 truckloads of trash bags that 12,000 visitors left strewn across the beach and picnic grounds.And the good news? That was 80 percent less trash than was hauled away on Memorial Day weekend a year ago, before the state Department of Natural Resources got rid of trash bins at all state parks and started handing out recyclable trash bags and making park visitors responsible for hauling away their own garbage.

Two city youths charged with fatally shooting a 13-year-old girl in the chest and then hiding her body under a pile of trash in an East Baltimore alley admitted to their respective roles in the killing Tuesday afternoon in juvenile court. A 13-year-old boy tendered an admission — the juvenile court equivalent of a guilty plea — to a charge of involuntary manslaughter for accidentally shooting Monae Turnage in March. A 12-year-old friend admitted to being an accessory to the crime for helping move her body.
