Letters to the Editor 8/2 Woman doesn't deserve prosecution To the editor: In the Daily Mail of July 27, I read a Pennsylvania woman is facing prosecution because of the way she disposed of a stillborn baby. First, let me state I do not approve of the callous way in which the stillborn baby was disposed of by this young lady. I must still object to this young lady facing criminal charges. She no doubt was very confused when her baby was born early; being stillborn added to her bewilderment.

ANNAPOLIS - Despite the support of two local lawmakers, an effort to repeal Maryland's motorcycle helmet law failed in a House of Delegates committee Thursday. Del. Louise V. Snodgrass, R-Frederick/Washington, and Del. Christopher B. Shank, R-Washington both voted for the repeal. But it died by a 7 to 14 vote of the House Commerce and Government Matters Committee. Gary "Pappy" Boward of Cavetown, executive director of the state's largest motorcycle group, testified last week that riders want the freedom to choose.

He looks at your chest before he looks at your eyes. She checks out your derriere as you stroll by. Perhaps you're undaunted by it. Perhaps it makes you uncomfortable. How you read the looks ultimately determines whether they are considered harassing or flattering. [cont. from lifestyle ] Unwanted glances can border on assaultive behavior, says Mike Harsh, professor of humanities at Hagerstown Community College. But there's a chance the eyes aren't focusing on what you think they are. Some people may not be fixating on your body but are gazing into the distance, Harsh says.

Does Fox end up marrying Krystal? Does Krystal end up on Team Starwolf? Does Falco quit the team and start a new team called "StarFalco"? The answer is: Yes! The ending of this game, "StarFox Command" for DS, all depends on the path that you choose. This game has a lot of new features not found in previous "StarFox" games. The first time you play, you will have to take the first path in order to obtain the key that can unlock all the other path options. But after you have the key, you are able to choose the path that you want to take instead of completing the mission they assign you. Also, when you are playing a level, you will need to defend your mother ship by drawing your ships (using the DS stylus)

Last week, I received roughly 500 e-mails, 80 percent of them junk. I'm not talking about the loan offers, opportunities to aid an African banker in dire straits by giving him my account numbers or chances to enlarge or shrink various body parts. Or the seven invitations to party with Steve-O from MTV that welcomed me to my e-mail account this morning. A filter blocks a good chunk of that trash here. Only a portion of that still gets through. The majority of the junk I receive is from public-relations people, who are offering to arrange an interview with a cook-off contestant from Rockville, Md., making me aware of a band playing in Shirleysburg, Pa., and inviting me to a book launch party in New York.

It was a Christmas miracle This is about Christmas, and my brother Ralph. I have to tell those of you who have asked about him that he is indeed alive and well. (In this case consider the word "well" loosely defined). I got Ralph, among other things, a dollar-bill tie for Christmas. Basically, the tie was designed to look like a pile of money. I bought it at a craft festival. I REALLY wanted to get him the cow-pie tie, but decided against that. I must have been in the Christmas spirit.

By TERRY TALBERT Staff Writer It's been a while since my last "Kid Talk" column, and think it's overdue, mostly because kids say the most outrageous things. Things that make you scratch your head. They give you a new view on life, and that's something we all need to do once in a while - see things differently. This is about the legendary Samantha, a.k.a. Sam, my friend's precocious 7-year-old daughter, and her pal and younger brother, Ryan. Sam and her brother were playing in the living room.

If people came with dashboard warning lights like their cars, Dr. Ingrid Kohlstadt said they might change their oil - to something like extra virgin olive, toasted hazelnut or sesame seed oil. That was one of several useful pieces of advice that Kohlstadt and other experts handed out Saturday at Healthfest, a Beauty & Wellness Fair at the Bridge of Life. "Many of us take better care of our cars than our bodies," said Kohlstadt, a physician nutrition specialist with Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. ? Scientific methods used to identify the stabbed, dismembered and decomposed remains of the white woman found in a western Berkeley County stream last year had all but failed. No one had reported the 47-year-old woman missing before or after her body was found partially submerged in Back Creek in red luggage packed with gym weights. No fingerprints, dental records or DNA samples were available to police for comparison. And no one recognized the computer-generated composite that was released to the public days after most of her remains were found Aug. 20, 2006.

MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - An attorney accused of killing his ex-wife last year and dumping her dismembered body in a western Berkeley County, W.Va., stream in suitcases he bought from Wal-Mart might testify in his own defense. "It's my intention, probably, to testify ... But I will make that decision at the appropriate time," Stephen R. Fielder told 23rd Judicial Circuit judge David H. Sanders on Thursday at his pretrial hearing. Fielder, 59, of Bunker Hill, W.Va., was indicted in February 2007 on one count of first-degree murder in the death of 47-year-old Debra Ann Fielder.

HAGERSTOWN - A wild-haired Pittsburgh Steeler and a juice box were represented Saturday as the Hagerstown Suns threw open Municipal Stadium's gates for a Halloween celebration. Among the familiar faces were Elmo from "Sesame Street," SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer. There were skeletons, a gorilla and a Spider-Man or two. "We just wanted to do something for kids," Suns General Manager Will Smith said after taking off his Darth Vader mask. The result was a few hours of free, safe trick-or-treating and partying.

In an average lifetime, you will breathe more than 75 million gallons of air - about 1 1/2 times the total capacity of the airship Hindenburg. Your intestines will process 40 tons of food. You will take 1 billion steps, walking about 77,000 miles. These are just a few of the interesting tidbits featured in a display at Valley Mall presented by Discovery Station at Hagerstown Inc. "Inside Out: The Visible Human" is a part of the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project.
