Born in Cullman, Ala., he served in the Army for 20 years and fought in the Battle of the Bulge during World War II. He earned a Bronze Star "for heroic achievement in military action" during fighting in January 1945 in Belgium. While on duty in Italy after the war, he met his future wife, Ester Franceschini. They married in Gorizia in the province of Venetia Julia in 1949.

I read William Smith's letter again and again ( "Who needs lazy retirees?" Aug. 19). It was an incredibly good piece of satire. For those that didn't get it, the retirees who are leaving Maryland are not the lazy welfare addicts - those people stay here. Instead, the ones who are leaving are those of us who worked long and hard our entire lives, lived within our means and paid off our mortgages instead of continually refinancing to buy yet a nicer car or a bigger TV. We are the ones who saved enough money to retire without counting on Social Security.

As a retiree, I read William Smith's recent letter to the editor with equal parts amazement and sadness ( "Who needs those lazy retirees?" Aug. 19). Amazement at the level of vitriol displayed, and sadness because it appears that Mr. Smith's education did not include a rigorous course in English usage, during which he would have become familiar with the definitions of the words "handout" and "welfare. " Let me attempt to fill this lamentable gap. According to Oxforddictionaries.com, a handout is "something given free to a needy person," and welfare is "financial support given to people in need.

William Smith writes that Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column concerning the Republican Party being the champion of small business is a fantasy and sets forth his own storyline that he alleges to have a "ring of truth to it" ( "Ehrlich's small business rhetoric rings hollow," May 13). Normally, I would dismiss such cliché riddled rants for what they are worth. However, the truly disturbing part of his letter is that Mr. Smith unfortunately depicts the predominant thinking found in our colleges and universities, the national media, and the leadership of the Democratic Party.

Despite all the opinions I have read recently, I was still stunned by the anti-marijuana-legalization screed in your paper arguing we should continue marijuana prohibition because alcohol prohibition was so successful ("Supporters of marijuana legalization misread history," March 11). Say what? Do the editors even read the stuff your op-ed writers send in before you publish it? Because I can't think of one other person who has ever argued that Prohibition was a success. And I'm not talking about starry eyed liberals.

I always have a good laugh when you run your "Red Maryland" column, and the most recent exercise in pointless drivel was no exception ( "To help children, start in the womb," Jan. 31). First of all, just to state a simple yet obvious fact that seems to elude some people: an embryo is not a person and no amount of wishing it is so will make it true. A baby is born when it draws its first breath. In fact, the Bible (which these right wing ignoramuses always reference, but none of them seems to bother to read or understand)

It was sad to see formerly respected Dr. Ben Carson go on television and so thoroughly destroy any credibility he had as a person ("Dr. Ben Carson apologizes, offers to withdraw from Hopkins speech" Mar 29). But it seems to shame and dishonor is a common path followed by so many "conservatives. " Oh well, at least we'll have fond memories of the man - sort of. Now that it looks like his tenure as someone to take seriously is over, maybe he should team up with Sheila Dixon.

Smith, a career railroader who rose from coach cleaner to head the Canton Railroad Co. and was also a strong advocate for the port of Baltimore, died Saturday from complications of Parkinson's disease at Gilchrist Hospice in Towson. The longtime Ruxton resident was 83. "Bill was a mentor to me and I always appreciated the confidence he had in me," said John C. Magness, president and chief executive officer of the Canton Railroad Co. "He had a bit of an edge and like Earl Weaver, could be tough but he was always right.

The absence of cornerback Lardarius Webb will hurt this team more than inside linebacker Ray Lewis not being in the lineup. Webb was playing extremely well and had forced other teams to stay away from him. He pretty much had shut down one quarter of the field. Without him, teams will start attacking the entire field again. Cornerbacks Cary Williams and Jimmy Smith have shown improvement in the last two games, but opposing teams weren't throwing at them. When you can run for more than 200 yards a game, why throw?

Each day leading up to the official start of camp, The Sun will examine several key position battles that will be decided during preseason. CORNERBACK The competitors : Cary Williams and Jimmy Smith Breaking it down : Lardarius Webb played at a Pro Bowl level last season and was justly rewarded with a six-year, $50 million contract in April.
