Baltimore County police found the body in a vehicle and notes led police to suspect something dangerous was inside.

One Baltimore Sun reader took the paper to task for its 'anti-cat rhetoric.'
After The Baltimore Sun ran an article calling cats "an invasive species" for their propensity to slay birds, one White Marsh man got the claws out.

I can assure you that here in White Marsh, they are doing a lousy job of it." He went on to say that rodents and birds were still "running and flying" around his home. The …

As his 17th season draws to a close, all things memorializing the Baltimore legend are flying off the shelves.

New legislation calls for a 75-foot minimum width for all single-family detached lots in the South Perry Hall-White Marsh area.
A change in development standards may help reduce overcrowding among new single-family homes in the South Perry Hall-White Marsh area.

A natural fireworks show should begin between midnight and the early dawn hours of Aug. 12.
A low of 67 degrees and mostly clear skies—Perry Hall's weather between midnight and the early dawn hours of Aug. 12 is well suited for the annual Perseid meteor shower. According to NASA: Each year in August, the Earth passes through a cloud of the comet's debris. These bits of ice and dust—most over 1,000 years old—burn up in the Earth's atmosphere to create one of the best meteor showers of the year. So where in Perry Hall is the best place to watch? Try the playing fields at Honeygo Run Regional Park, or the baseball diamond behind Kingsville Elementary School's playgrounds. Share your suggestions in the comments. Want to find out more about exactly what causes the natural fireworks? Astronomer and researcher Elizabeth Jeffery, Ph.D. …
