The problem: Bike Baltimore signs point the wrong way at a Reservoir Hill intersection. The back story: Mary Hayes lives in Reservoir Hill and passes through the intersection of Park Avenue and Whitelock Street frequently in her car. As a result, she had plenty of opportunities to be irritated by something she noticed there. A "Bike Baltimore" sign on the southeast corner directed cyclists to turn left onto Park Avenue. But Park Avenue actually continues north from that point, and a left turn would take you onto Whitelock Street.

An Anne Arundel County judge heard closing arguments Wednesday in the case against a Howard County police officer charged with assault in connection with a June 2013 wrong-way collision in Anne Arundel that injured a family of four. Circuit Court Judge Paul F. Harris Jr., who is presiding over the trial, said he will deliver his decision on June 23.  The officer, Symchay Kon Bendu, 29, of North Laurel, faces four counts of second-degree assault, a reckless driving charge and a negligent driving charge in connection with the June 8 accident, which occurred on a one-way road that connects Route 100 eastbound to Route 10 southbound.  The accident in question, during which Bendu's cruiser was T-boned as he attempted to make a U-turn, was preceded an hour earlier by another accident in Anne Arundel involving Bendu.

“He's headed toward Route 50. If he gets that far, there's going to be a real problem. … I don't want him to hit somebody.” Those words, from a driver on I-97 calling police about a car headed the wrong way on the highway, turned sadly prophetic early Saturday. Read full story of accident . Police were not able to catch up to the red sedan filled with three teenagers before it got onto the wrong side of U.S. 50 - heading west in the eastbound lanes - before it slammed head on into a black BMW near Route 424 south of Crofton.

I see that I have my work cut out for me.  Yesterday, as I was going over a little diagnostic exercise in my copy editing class, a student volunteered to identify an error in one sentence. "Passive voice," she said confidently. The sentence in question did not have a passive construction; the verb was in the present perfect tense: "has served. "   So I am going to surmise, as it is usually safe to do, that my students have been instructed along the way, that the passive voice is a wicked thing that, like Communism in the 1950s, can be lurking anywhere, in compound verbs, in there is/there are  sentences, in any clause that contains a form of  to be .  This misinformation is hardly limited to undergraduates.

Second of three articles about state ballot questions Ambrose "Bo" Vogt, a union construction worker from Pasadena, believes the effort to expand gambling in Maryland would create jobs in a field in which work has been scarce. But Tamara Davis Brown, an attorney in Clinton, thinks legalizing table games and allowing a casino in Prince George's would tarnish the image and economic future of the county she has called home since 1988. Both are firmly committed - Vogt to supporting Question 7 and Brown to opposing it. The referendum campaign has been dominated by the lavish spending of rival casino giants on slick advertising spots, but for some voters, the issue is deeply felt and intensely personal.

Furor surged in Maryland and across the country Monday over a Missouri congressman's comment that he opposes abortion in most cases of rape because women rarely become pregnant during a "legitimate rape. " Though Rep. Todd Akin, a Republican who is challenging Democrat Claire McCaskill for her U.S. Senate seat, later said he "misspoke," it did little to quell astonishment rolling in from women's groups, prominent members of the GOP and the president. "Rape is rape, and the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn't make sense to the American people and certainly doesn't make sense to me," President Barack Obama said Monday.
