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 Maryland Board of Physicians upheld on Thursday its decision to suspend Dr. William Dando's medical license based on his indictment in Allegany County for an alleged sexual assault. Dando appeared before the board Wednesday and was given the chance to argue why the suspension, issued June 5, should be lifted. A presentation from Dando and his lawyer did not dissuade the board that "there exists a substantial risk of serious harm to the public health, safety or welfare in Dr. Dando's continued practice," acting board Executive Director Christine Farrelly wrote in a letter posted to the board website Thursday.

A developer who wants to build 4,300 homes in a rural part of Allegany County and the county's elected commissioners have filed suit against Maryland's environmental and planning agencies, accusing them of illegally blocking the project. In the lawsuit, filed late last week in Allegany Circuit Court in Cumberland, Terrapin Run LLC is seeking $16 million in damages, contending that the state's denial has made it impossible to develop the 935-acre tract near Green Ridge State Forest. The county commissioners asked the court to make the agencies approve the project.

If patients in Maryland want to learn about complaints or concerns about their doctors, there is little that can be made public under state law. But that's not the case in all states. Complaints made to medical licensing boards are made public in nine states, according to the Federation of State Medical Boards. Here and in most of the rest of the country, complaints are kept confidential. The Maryland Board of Physicians makes allegations public only when it has taken action to discipline a doctor.

To become licensed as a nurse, a social worker or even to drive around dead bodies in Maryland, a criminal background check is required. But not to get a doctor's license. Instead, the state Board of Physicians asks would-be doctors to voluntarily disclose arrests and convictions. That could change as soon as next year. Already considering a background check policy, the board may move more urgently following news that it granted a medical license to a doctor with a previous rape conviction who now has been charged with sexually assaulting a patient in Allegany County.

Arguing their safe access to public lands is threatened, birders are making a last-ditch appeal to Gov. Martin O'Malley to veto legislation that would expand hunting on Sundays in western Maryland. The Maryland Ornithological Society joined horse lovers in opposing two bills that would authorize hunting deer and other game on private and public lands in Garrett, Allegany, Washington and Frederick counties. The General Assembly overwhelmingly passed both measures, sponsored by western Maryland lawmakers, on the final day of the legislative session April 7. The Maryland Horse Council , representing horseback riders, had testified against the bills during the 90-day legislative session.

COLLEGE PARK - Edmondson struggled throughout the first half of Saturday's Class 1A state title game and held a tenuous, one-point lead over Allegany at halftime. Then, Red Storm coach Darnell Dantzler adjusted. On offense, he emphasized patience, pushing his team to slow down and take its time to find a good shot. On defense, Edmondson switched out of a zone to a man-to-man. Those changes worked at both ends as the No. 6 Red Storm controlled the tempo throughout the second half and slowed Allegany's offense en route to a 54-51 victory at Comcast Center.

As we appear to be in a public-comment period regarding the proposed secession of five western counties from Maryland, I have a few additional observations to offer. But let me start with a summary of reasons for the separatist movement provided in dozens of emails from thoughtful people, many of them self-described libertarians, who support the establishment of the state of West Maryland: Residents of Carroll, Frederick, Washington, Allegany and Garrett counties are sick of the tyrannical rule of smug, liberal, socialist-leaning Democrats who live in central, urban-suburban Maryland, who support the welfare state, abortion and gun control, who raise taxes and fees or finagle federal funds for things that have nothing to do with Western Maryland while ignoring the needs of rural counties and running businesses out of the state.

Your recent editorial significantly minimized the need to explore a post-Labor Day start to Maryland's public school calendar ( "One week and counting," Aug. 19). It was disappointing that The Sun would issue such a dismissive opinion without first giving the task force established earlier this year by the General Assembly a chance to comprehensively study this proposal and issue a report. With Maryland's unique natural bounty, our state provides families with countless opportunities to spend the last weeks of August exploring the scenic mountains of Western Maryland, taking advantage of the richness of the Chesapeake Bay or enjoying time together on the beautiful shoreline in Ocean City . While the $74.3 million in direct economic activity that is lost by starting schools in August may not seem significant to some, a couple weeks of lost or diminished revenue can often be "make or break" for many family-owned businesses.

The recent series of features and editorials on the subject of Advanced Placement achievement in Maryland left an incomplete picture and unfair impression of Dorchester County Public Schools ("AP is not for everyone," Aug. 24). Over the last several years, we have pursued strategic initiatives to provide our children with a variety of program options to fulfill our mission that every child finish his or her program of study and become college and career ready. Notable among these are the construction of a new Dorchester Career and Technology Center to increase the number of technical career completer programs from 11 to 20, and securing a dual enrollment grant that has significantly increased our student participation in college credit bearing courses.
