Shelby Mercer and her Century field hockey teammates needed only the motivation of a county championship to refocus Monday as they came off a loss that ended a nine-game winning streak. Knocking off No. 10 Westminster, which had won the past two county titles and six of seven overall, took precedence over everything else. So the No. 9 Knights started with a high level of intensity and held it throughout most of the game, beating the Owls, 2-1, to clinch the county title. Century (10-2-1, 6-0 county)

John Houser III enjoyed his meal at Cafe Tuscany (formerly A Little Bit of Tuscany) more than he thought he would. He reports in his review that Cafe Tuscany was worth the one-hour drive. But, of course, Cafe Tuscany is in a lot of our readers' neck of the woods. Here's John on the shrimp picatta: "This recipe was run into the ground during the 1990s and became a culinary pariah. Here it is un-ironic and delicious, showing why it became popular in the first place. " I love that feeling of "OH, that's what this is supposed to be!

For me and many of my old school friends, sport is not about efficiency, titles and "winning" but rather about fairness and appreciation of athletic ability and the effort it takes. Instilling those values in children, whether they go on to become athletes or not, is something most parents are challenged by. Having the Ravens' training camp in a small town is right for many reasons, the biggest being the opportunity it gives the team to engage children, especially those from families who can't afford game day at the stadium.

I applaud Rep. Andy Harris for his press release expressing disagreement with using a military facility in Westminster to house illegal immigrant children ( "Harris opposes Carroll County immigrant shelter," July 11). In Carroll County there is no room for illegal aliens, and they are not welcome. There should be no room for illegal aliens in the state of Maryland. Illegal aliens take jobs from American citizens and tax our public schools, public health system, hospitals and law enforcement.
