The Maryland Board of Elections determined Republican Larry Hogan broke a campaign finance rule, but the panel agreed Thursday to waive the fine associated with the minor infraction. Elections officials cleared Hogan of wrongdoing in two of three charges leveled against him by the Maryland Democratic Party this summer. In the third charge, officials determined Hogan violated campaign-finance rules by not paying his advocacy group, Change Maryland, for a poll the group sold to his campaign.

The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) is currently treating a 3-year-old mixed breed dog who appears to be the victim of severe abuse. Sophia was brought to the shelter last week by city animal control officers with multiple scars on her face and head and with no lower jaw. She is also missing upper teeth. BARCS officials said the wounds on her face looked to be bite marks. Despite her extensive injuries and clearly traumatic past, Sophia is loving and sweet and still trusts humans, they said.

The State Board of Elections ruled Thursday that Republican gubernatorial candidate Charles Lollar is ineligible for public financing because he missed the legal deadline to apply. The board voted unanimously to deny the waiver request by Lollar, a Charles County business executive. Jared Demarinis, executive director of candidacy and campaign finance, told the board that Lollar missed the Feb. 25 to apply because his campaign had forgotten that was the deadline for applying for public financing as well as for filing candidacy papers.

In five years with the Jacksonville Jaguars, left tackle Eugene Monroe never experienced a winning season. Over his last 20 games played, he's celebrated just two victories. So when Monroe walked to the Ravens' indoor practice facility Thursday and spotted the giant banner of the Lombardi Trophy that hangs from the far wall, a whirlwind couple of days came into focus. "Coming to a situation like this where they're winning is unique," Monroe said after participating in the Ravens' morning walk-through.

Sam's Club is waiving membership requirements for military personnel and retirees and their families during the government shutdown.

"Military personnel, retirees and their families heavily depend on commissaries for low-cost groceries and everyday needs," Sam's Club's announcement said.  The retailer said it planned to waive the fees at Sam's Club locations near military bases until the government re-opens the commissaries.

Maryland's new handgun licensing law will be waived for the nearly 50,000 gun buyers still waiting for background checks, the state police said Tuesday. The department also deployed a new team of two dozen data-entry workers to help address the backlog, which has left gun purchasers waiting for months. Maryland's new gun law, which takes effect Tuesday, calls for handgun buyers to give their fingerprints to law enforcement and get a $50 license. An advisory letter from the attorney general said even buyers who applied long ago would have to comply with those provisions if they didn't pick up their firearm until Oct. 1 or after.

August can seem to languish, but the dog days are really long for homeless pets who've been laying around shelters for a long time. To help those pooches find their forever homes, the Maryland SPCA has reduced or waived adoption fees for its long-timers. Dogs can become long-timers for a number of reasons: they're shy or overly exuberant when meeting new people (which can be a symptom of waiting a long time to meet their lifetime loves), they're not as cute as puppies, they're not more popular breeds, or there are just too many homeless dogs competing with them for the attention of shelter visitors.
