A member of an editors' group on Facebook posed this question yesterday: "Peristalsis is a series of muscle contractions that move/moves along the digestive tract. " Move or moves? There followed a something less than edifying exchange of views and comments, some picking move  and some picking moves  as if we were in a schoolyard choosing up sides for Red Rover.  One gentleman insisted repeatedly, and dogmatically, that it has to be moves  to agree with series . He knows how to diagram sentences, he said, and his judgment is " based on more than three decades of experience that started in the newsroom of a metro daily.

The signing of a long-delayed bilateral security agreement between the U.S. and Afghanistan today means the U.S. won't again find itself in the same situation it faced two years ago in Iraq, where the failure to reach a similar accord precipitated the withdrawal of all American forces and a rapid deterioration of the security situation. The Afghans can now be assured of continued American military assistance in their struggle against a resurgent Taliban - at least for the next two years, when the agreement must be renewed.

The Frederick Douglass Honor Society has signed an agreement with a sculptor to build a statue honoring Douglass on the Talbot County Courthouse lawn. The agreement with Silver Spring sculptor Jay Hall Carpenter stipulates that the statue of the African-American orator and activist be completed by June 2011. The organization originally sought to have the statue completed during Easton's 300th Anniversary celebrations in November, but society President Eric Lowery says this allows Carpenter time to give the society the best product he can. The Talbot County Council must still sign off on the project.

Even before they signed it, a handful of Major League Baseball owners expressed deep misgivings about a 2005 agreement negotiated by Orioles owner Peter Angelos establishing conditions under which the Montreal Expos would move and become the Washington Nationals. The owners, all members of baseball's executive council, sounded like customers having second thoughts after buying something from an aggressive salesman. They questioned whether Major League Baseball ceded too much to the Orioles for their agreement to share the club's exclusive television territory, according to the minutes of a March 28, 2005, conference call released last week as an exhibit in a court case.

Cecil Bancorp Inc. and its subsidiary, Cecil Bank, have reached an agreement with state and federal regulators to take steps to ensure financial soundness.

The bank also agreed not to extend further credit, without approval by the board, to borrowers whose loans were criticized by regulators last year.

When Osiris Therapeutics disclosed an agreement last week resolving concerns from federal regulators, the Columbia biotech firm pitched it as a win. The deal doesn't require changes to its marketing of Grafix bandages, Osiris said, and also gives it the opportunity to get a biologics license that could improve international prospects for the product. But some news stories — and at least one Wall Street analyst team — described the U.S. Food and Drug Administration agreement in entirely different terms.

Hopes for redevelopment of the former Sparrows Point steel mill in Baltimore County - and the promise of new jobs - took two giant strides forward Thursday as the land was sold to a new owner who also reached agreement with state and federal environmental agencies on a cleanup plan for the polluted site. The massive former Bethlehem Steel facility was shuttered two years ago and auctioned off in a bankruptcy-law proceeding to salvage companies. The land has now been sold for an undisclosed amount to Sparrows Point Terminal, an offshoot of the Hanover-based investment firm Redwood Capital Investments LLC. Under terms of an agreement announced Thursday with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Department of the Environment, Redwood Capital will commit $48 million to clean up the property's land and groundwater, and pay $3 million to the EPA to investigate issues in the water surrounding Sparrows Point.

Former Catonsville doctor William Dando will not face trial for sexual assault allegations after agreeing never to practice medicine in Maryland again. Allegany County prosecutors dropped charges against him Tuesday, citing two factors — the "he said, she said" nature of the case and his decision to surrender his medical license. Dando had been scheduled to stand trial Wednesday in an incident in which a 41-year-old patient said he touched her genitals while treating her for an ear infection at an urgent-care center near Cumberland.

The U.S. Coast Guard's shipyard in Curtis Bay has signed an agreement to provide ship maintenance over the next five years for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Atlantic fleet. The new memorandum of understanding, announced Tuesday by Sen. Barbara Mikulski's office, extends an existing partnership between the Coast Guard and the NOAA, which studies changes in the environment for the federal government. Under the agreement, the NOAA said it expects to send at least one of its nine Atlantic ships to the yard per year for maintenance, though the agency may also contract with private-sector shipyards if the work would be less expensive.

Step increases are based on length of service. Another half-step would be given in a lump-sum payment July 1 of next year.

Johns Hopkins Hospital and the labor union that represents 2,000 service workers ended contract talks without an agreement Tuesday night, despite intervention by the governor. The talks were the first since members of the 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East labor union called off a four-day strike last week after Gov. Martin O'Malley asked the two sides to take a one-week cooling-off period. No new bargaining date has been scheduled, but neither side has said it will suspend negotiations.

Long before Marylanders knew of Clarence Thomas or Anita Hill, they had heard of the sexual harassment case of Paula Haavistola against the Rising Sun Fire Co. Now it is back in the news.After working with the volunteer fire unit in this Cecil County town for about a year, Ms. Haavistola was suspended in March 1990 after she accused a fellow crew member of having grabbed her by the crotch and buttocks after the two returned from an ambulance run. Following Ms. Haavistola's complaint, the fire company's board took the odd action of suspending both the accused and the accuser.
