Maryland State police have charged David M. Montgomery with murder after a Westminster man was found dead early Saturday morning. Montgomery, 28, of no fixed address, was charged with first- and second-degree murder, and taken to the Carroll County Central Booking Center to await an appearance before a court commissioner. Edward C. Zepp, 61, was found dead on the back porch of his residence on the 100 block of West Main Street shortly after 4 a.m. with trauma to his neck. He was pronounced dead.

Pallotti Early Learning Center's 1999 low-mileage, light gold, Dodge minivan was stolen from their parking lot on Dec. 1 or 2. When I received the notification from the school to be on the lookout, I took it seriously as a parent. As a working member of the communications and marketing community, however, I realized we can all do more than look for it ourselves. We all have friends, acquaintances and coworkers who we talk to on Facebook or follow on Twitter.  I'd like us, as a community of parents, to engage the larger Laurel community in raising awareness for what's happened. It may only take a "friend of a friend" to lead to a tip that helps Pallotti Early Learning Center retrieve its van. With that in mind, we've taken the liberty of writing a tweet and Facebook post for you to share if you're able.  Please view them as a guideline and change them to best suit your needs.

I find Rep. Chris Van Hollen's comments very ironic about Rep. John Boehner wanting to delay on the fiscal cliff until he is re-elected Speaker of the House ("Conservatives battle Obama," Dec. 13). Isn't this the same Rep. Van Hollen, the super-committee member, who had an opportunity to craft a deal more than one year ago? What did he do during negotiations? How was he compromising in the process last year? I think he didn't. Asking a Maryland Democrat to compromise is unheard of, after all. Can he give insight as to what would be a fair and equitable solution?

As the fiscal cliff looms, two of Maryland's most influential congressmen have a message for those looking to the federal workforce for more savings: Look somewhere else. "Federal workers have already been asked to sacrifice as part of the budget cuts that have already taken place," Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House budget committee, told reporters last week. "Now is the time to ask others to help share responsibility for reducing our deficit. " Van Hollen spoke days after Rep. Steny Hoyer wrote an op-ed urging negotiators: "Don't Throw Feds Over 'Cliff.'" "Over the past two years, federal employees have repeatedly faced threats of a government shutdown that would stop their paychecks with virtually no notice," Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, wrote in Federal Times.

As Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen Jr. eyes a run for the U.S. Senate in 2014, readers deserve to know the truth about his record on Israel and Iran. Some readers seem to believe that democracy ends on Election Day, and that afterward citizens give up the right to criticize their elected officials. I disagree. As an investigative reporter - and as Congressman Van Hollen's Republican opponent in the last election - I closely examined his record. It is true Mr. Van Hollen was a co-sponsor of legislation to authorize U.S. support for Iron Dome, the missile defense system that helped shield Israeli citizens from terrorist rockets fired from Gaza.

Police in Baltimore County have charged a teenager with attempted second degree murder after he allegedly rammed a stolen minivan into a police car and attempted to run over an officer early Saturday. Antonio Rashad Green, 16, was driving a 2003 white Dodge Caravan on Bristol and Stoneleigh Roads in Towson at about 1:27 a.m. when an officer stopped him, police said. Before the officer could get out of the car, the minivan reversed and banged into the front of the police car before speeding off, according to a police statement.

WASHINGTON -- Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, locked out of pursuing a higher leadership role in this Congress, formally requested another term as the top-ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee in a letter to his colleagues Tuesday. Van Hollen, among his party's top spokesmen on fiscal issues, had been discussed as a possible candidate for a more formal leadership role. But that talk ended when longtime ally and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi decided to remain in the party's No. 1 spot.

A few years ago, Pat van den Beemt covered a small boy who was honored by the Hereford Volunteer Fire Department for giving his "earnings" from a lemonade stand, about $400, to their efforts. I just wanted to share how life has come full circle. This young boy has grown into the young man who was photographed at the SJATV-Radio Station, the auburn-haired announcer named Jack Jankowski. (North County News, "St. James Academy students tune in," Oct. 11). I am his proud mother. I noticed your byline and recall how kind you were to us during the original story at the fire department and what an impact it had on him then.
