A storm drain blew up after filling with water from a nearby water main break on top of mounds of garbage on Montpelier Street in Waverly Wednesday, a public works spokesman said. The garbage "explosion" happened when a water main break in the 3100 block of Ellerslie Avenue caused a waterline to a house to break, sending water into storm drains, said Kurt Kocher, a DPW spokesman. When the water ran into the storm drain on Montpelier Street, the storm drain was already filled with garbage, causing the storm drain to overflow — leaving a "hole" in the street, Kocher said.

After reading your "Running water found on Mars?" (Aug. 4), I started reading between the lines. Two rovers were sent to Mars in 2004. Can anyone tell me how much taxpayers funds have been spent on the hardware, facilities, equipment and support staff since then? And after all that, the most the lead researcher on the project could say was "This (finding evidence of water) is the single most bullet-proof observation that I can think of that we've made this entire mission"? That's a pretty sad return on investment.

Water still draws Amy Alcott. The LPGA Hall of Famer, famous for sparking a women's golf tradition by jumping into a greenside lake after winning the Nabisco Dinah Shore tournament, is often found churning laps at Southern California swimming pools. "I'm not a good swimmer," Alcott, 55, says, "but I enjoy being in the water and exercising. " Nor has the winner of five major championships and 24 other LPGA Tour events ruled out another leap into a lake. On April 2, in conjunction with the Kraft Nabisco Championship in Rancho Mirage, Calif., she'll host the inaugural Fresh & Easy Dinah Shore Charity Pro-Am, featuring legends such as her, Nancy Lopez, Pat Bradley and Patty Sheehan.

The Sun was incredibly forgiving in its recent editorial about Baltimore's scandalous water billing system ("Tax sale timeout," March 25), particularly since The Sun's own reporting has convincingly shown the Department of Public Works' incompetence and mendacity, its manipulation of citizens, and its outright fraudulent and systematic overbilling. People have even had their homes confiscated because of this system of incompetence and extortion, yet the mayor has had the audacity to assert that nothing can be done about this because to do so might damage the city's bond ratings.
