Teachers unions: Verizon, Comcast need to do a better job at getting internet to the students who need it | COMMENTARY

All children deserve the opportunity to learn, but the coronavirus pandemic is testing our ability to provide the necessary resources for them to access this right.

A lack of access to the internet is shutting out many students completely. The solution is no-cost, high-speed internet for all students and educators. Internet giants Comcast and Verizon have the power to meet that need. Advertisement Online learning is...

Nobody asked, but here’s a suggestion for a statue to replace the one of Christopher Columbus in Baltimore | COMMENTARY

Nobody asked, but here’s a suggestion for a statue to replace the one of Christopher Columbus in Baltimore | COMMENTARY

Nobody asked me, but if I was of Italian ancestry — and I am, on my mother’s side — I would see the as an opportunity to honor an Italian-American who has lived an honorable life. And a statue of someone from Baltimore who has served the public good would be even more suitable. Here’s an idea sent my way from Melanie Hood-Wilson, a Baltimore educator: Replace the statue of Columbus with one of — the former Nancy D’Alesandro of Albermarle Street, Little Italy, the daughter and sister of Baltimore mayors and a history-maker as the first woman to serve as Speaker of the U.S. House of...

Five times law enforcers could have arrested Donald Trump but didn’t

Five times law enforcers could have arrested Donald Trump but didn’t

Advertisement If he is confirmed, the longtime U.S. Attorney for Maryland, Rod Rosenstein, will oversee this investigation, since Attorney General...

How a West Baltimore nursing home has zero COVID-19 infections | COMMENTARY

How a West Baltimore nursing home has zero COVID-19 infections | COMMENTARY

Here’s a key question for the Rev. Derrick DeWitt, director of the Maryland Baptist Aged Home in West Baltimore, a 100-year-old nursing facility that has had no coronavirus infections: What was the moment you realized the threat was real and that you had to take action to protect your residents and staff? “Right after President Trump said we had 15 cases and it would soon be down to zero.” Advertisement I dare not put words in a Baptist minister’s mouth, but it sounds like he listened to what the President of the United States had to say, then decided just the opposite would be true. “It...

As businesses close, Baltimore ponders Inner Harbor’s future: ‘The status quo is not going to work’

The two-story Barnes & Noble bookstore stood over Baltimore’s waterfront for more than two decades, a one-of-a-kind spot to browse, gather, work or sip coffee among thousands of book titles and CDs in a former steam-generating plant. The store’s in the Power Plant complex hit hard, followed by the closing of the restaurant Dick’s Last Resort.

Supreme Court blocks release of Robert Mueller grand jury documents

Supreme Court blocks release of Robert Mueller grand jury documents

The Supreme Court on Wednesday temporarily prevented the House of Representatives from obtaining secret grand jury testimony from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.
