Back in March, the Today Show picked Baltimore for its yearlong health, fitness, and anti-obesity campaign. Six months later, four Baltimore schools have been ranked among the healthiest in the country. So do we all owe Al Roker a big thank you?

We knew that Thor, the deaf and impossibly cute pit bull puppy who was stolen from a Timonium couple, had been returned safely on Tuesday. Now we know how. According to Baltimore County police, the two suspects in the robbery (which also included the theft of electronics) made arrangements to sell the dog back to the owners. When they showed up to the White Marsh Mall parking lot police were there to arrest them.

Now, some would groan about the stupidity of criminals, but in this case at least, thank goodness for it! If the two men, both of Baltimore City, hadn’t gone along with the dubious idea of making a parking-lot transaction with people they had recently robbed, there’s no telling where Thor may have ended up.

Baltimore County police Corp. John Wachter doesn’t know exactly how it transpired, but Thor, the deaf pit bull puppy that was stolen from a Timonium couple’s home during a burglarly, has been returned!

No word yet on the 55-inch flat screen television, Playstation 3, or Macbook Pro, but Thor’s owners must be relieved that the dog ended up back in their custody unharmed. They two had raised over $1,000 on gofundme.com to use as a reward for his safe return.

They took the television, the computer, and ransacked the house. But worst of all, it looks like whoever burglarized Anna Hiken’s and Mike Lenhart’s Timonium apartment also made off with their 13-week-old pit bull puppy Thor.

There is of course the standard heartbreak that comes with an event like this as well as the fear that whoever took Thor plans to use him for dog fighting. But there’s another turn of the screw: Thor is “completely deaf,” a complication that Hiken and Lenhart fear his dognappers won’t be prepared to deal with.

Although it’s still only in the construction phase, the brand-new elementary school in Mays Chapel Park in Timonium is in need of a name. “A goal for this school is for it to be a truly community-oriented school, one in which collaboration with parents, teachers, students and the community is an important and beneficial hallmark,” Steve Coco, the school’s first principal, said according to the Baltimore Sun. “I’m looking forward to hearing from voices across our area through the process of considering and selecting just the right name for our new school.” According to Baltimore County school officials, the name must reference “a community, subdivision or street where the school is located, the geographic location of the school, a significant landmark near the school, or a deceased, prominent person who made an ‘outstanding contribution of service’ to the county, state, or country.” Which gives me a few ideas:
