Patricia R. Amass, a retired Carroll County educator and volunteer who focused her efforts on those living in Third World countries, died Monday of abdominal cancer at Carroll Hospice's Dove House in Westminster. She was 78. "Pat defined the statement of what a professional colleague and a dedicated teacher is. We need more educators in this world who had her sort of dedication," said Francis "Skip" Fennell, professor of education at McDaniel College and a friend of nearly 40 years.

WASHINGTON -- If they leave office at the end of their terms next year, 165 House members could pocket $41 million in leftover campaign money for personal use, says a study made public yesterday.But if they stay in office beyond 1992, federal law would prohibit them from using the money for anything but expenses related to their campaigns or public duties.The study, by the Center for Public Integrity, a non-profit research group based in Washington, found that the House members amassed these "golden parachutes" because most had such weak opponents, if any at all, that they barely used their campaign treasuries to win re-election last year.

The Morgan State football team found its rhythm on offense in the first and fourth quarters of its Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener against Norfolk State. It was the middle stretch that proved to be the Bears' undoing Saturday. The offense had minus-1 yard in the second and third quarters combined, and the Spartans took advantage with 20 unanswered points en route to a 27-21 win before an announced 856 at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore. Morgan State, which has lost its first five games of the season for the first time since 2000, racked up 234 yards and three touchdowns in the opening and final quarters but could not overcome its own crippling play in between.

I gave my company an eight-week notice. I had planned to use that time to look for another job. But after I gave notice, my manager informed me that he would let me know at the end of the week if the company still needed my services. If he lets me go right away, can I collect unemployment? He said I wouldn't be able to collect because I had resigned. He can huff all he wants. But if he dismisses you before your designated quit date, you may well be entitled to unemployment benefits to cover the weeks you expected to work.

As Barack Obama prepares to be sworn in for the second time as president of the United States, he faces the stark reality that little of what he hopes to accomplish in a second term will likely come to pass. Mr. Obama occupies an office that many assume to be all powerful, but like so many of his recent predecessors, the president knows better. He faces a political capital problem and a power trap. In the post-1960s American political system, presidents have found the exercise of effective leadership a difficult task.

On the cusp of joining Phil Anthony (1999-2002) as the only players in Goucher's history to accrue 200 points in a career, Kyle Boncaro said he knew, but didn't know. Allow the senior attackman to explain. “I had a sense of it probably toward the end of last year,” he said Wednesday. “But this season, I was more focused on team play rather than individual records.” After racking up 10 points on seven goals and three assists in the Gophers' 27-7 shellacking of Southwestern on Saturday, Boncaro needed three more points to reach 200, and he did that on his second goal of a 30-2 thrashing of Dallas on Sunday.

With his 10-yard run late in the second quarter of the Ravens' 24-16 eventual win against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday evening, running back Ricky Williams became the 26th player in NFL history to amass 10,000 rushing yards in a career. Williams, who carried the ball six times for 28 yards and has gained 10,009 yards in 11 years, is just one of three active players to have reached this achievement. (The New York Jets' LaDainian Tomlinson and the Kansas City Chiefs' Thomas Jones are the others.)

I read Eileen's Sunday column about how former Gov. William Donald Schaefer amassed millions with interest. It's clear that the former mayor, governor and comptroller enjoyed some perks --- eight years of free housing in the governor's mansion, for example --- that most public employees do not. And Schaefer received a pension for his public service, something many of the newest entrants into today's job market won't have. But Eileen shows that Schaefer also made choices that worked in his financial favor.

A Carroll County man pleaded guilty Monday to distributing child pornography after he attempted to provide more than 900,000 videos and images to an undercover federal officer, some of which documented toddlers being sexually abused by adults, the Maryland U.S. attorney's office announced Tuesday. Brian Furches, 37, of Manchester, entered the plea after he attempted to share the images with the officer on Nov. 27 last year, according to a release from the prosecutor's office. The undercover officer downloaded about 471 files of child pornography, a small fraction of the more than 2 million images and videos Furches had amassed since 1995, officials said.

Some of Maryland's most intense political contests of the year are unfolding in Baltimore County, where candidates are gathering cash to position themselves for county executive, the County Council and the state legislature. County Councilman Kevin B. Kamenetz has a $1.1 million balance in his campaign account, up about $300,000 since late October, according to finance reports filed this week. While the Democrat who represents Pikesville, Ruxton and surrounding areas hasn't formally announced he's running for the open county executive position, he's continuing to raise the money his campaign treasurer has estimated will be needed for a contested primary against fellow Democratic Councilman Joseph Bartenfelder.

WESTMINSTER - In a move that might seem elementary in its simplicity, Carroll officials have combined state and federal early education programs this year. The result is pre-kindergarten classes that have filled up like seats at a New Kids on the Block concert."We have a long waiting list," said Patricia R. Amass, Carroll's coordinator of compensatory programs. "We have almost as many children on the waiting list as we have enrolled in the classes. People are already signing up for next year."
