Negotiators working on a new management structure for the troubled Baltimore City schools will meet in Annapolis today, with the status of teachers union contracts emerging as a key impediment to a final deal. Bill drafters worked through the weekend on the framework of emergency legislation that could set the stage for a $42 million state loan for the school system. But the draft had several holes -- such as what powers a new oversight authority should have, and whether the panel would have the ability to alter union contracts.

Her arrival coincides with Gov. Martin O'Malley signing the bill, which passed the General Assembly unanimously this month. It aims to ease Maryland veterans' transition from the military to civilian jobs and universities, as well as help veterans and military spouses get professional licenses for more than 70 jobs when they move here.

Getting representatives from at least a dozen Arab countries to Annapolis today for President Bush's Middle East summit was no small feat considering America's reputation in the region and the unlikely prospect of substantive change in the Israeli-Palestinian relationship. But Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice could advance the peace agenda - and her diplomatic credentials - if she secures Syria's involvement in the process beyond the one-day meeting. Ms. Rice, who has taken on the peace process as her personal project, has an opportunity to reverse the Bush administration's isolation of Syria.

In 1973, inspired by a speech given at the University of Maryland by consumer crusader Ralph Nader, law student Jim Cubie gathered some of his classmates in an attempt to put into practice what Nader was preaching, that students, with help, could carry out significant social change. They worked to protect tenants from unfair landlord practices, to protect children from faulty toys and to protect the environment. "Back then it was just a collection of broke law students, basically," recalled Baltimore Circuit Judge John M. Glynn, who was recruited by Cubie in those years.
