The following stories have been hand-selected by the Assignment Desk at News4:

TICKET ODDS APP
Baltimore Sun: "Ever feel like you're gambling when you don't feed the parking meter or race through that just-turned-red light? Now a new website — and soon a smartphone application — will help Baltimore drivers know the odds of receiving a ticket wherever they illegally park their car, run a red light or exceed the speed limit."

SCHOOL CAFETERIAS COUNTING CALORIES
Gazette: "  The lunch menu at Rolling Terrace Elementary School in Takoma Park on March 1 featured either a whole grain soft taco with corn or a hot dog with baked beans. It also included another ingredient: calorie counts of each item. State lawmakers are considering legislation that would require all public schools, beginning next year, to publish on their lunch menus the number of calories in each product."

BUSTED
The Capital " An Annapolis burglary suspect got busted by technology yesterday. Businesses in a building in the unit block of Old Solomons Island Road had been experiencing break-ins, so one business owner installed a motion-activated video surveillance system hidden in a flower pot outside the office door."
