The problem: How can residents report damage that might have been caused by county or city snow-removal equipment? The back story: Construction vehicles moved a little bit more than snow on the 5200 block of Kramme Ave. in Brooklyn Park, said Betty Smith. Smith said the equipment that dug out a big chunk of snow in front of her house dislodged a section of the sidewalk as well. "It's in perfectly good shape," she said, but the slab has been displaced about 5 inches.

Henry T. Weinstein, 76, a veteran movie producer who may be best known for trying to help Marilyn Monroe complete her last film, died Sept. 17 in Boca Raton, Fla., where he lived. He had been ill for some time, his family said. Mr. Weinstein retired from the movie industry in the mid-1990s after producing films and working in television and theater for more than four decades. He became a producer of the last movie in which Miss Monroe was cast, "Something's Got to Give," when, as David Brown of 20th Century Fox recalled later, "Her therapist said it would be better if Marilyn had someone who understood her and could deal with her."

New York -- "Next on 'Donahue': Bible-thumping parents have sex with their kids."With those words, the show was on. For an hour yesterday, the cameras rolled while five siblings, ranging in age from 21 to 39, sat beneath the bright lights of a New York City sound stage and described growing up in Maryland in a family with a history of more than two decades of incest.From the outside all looked well: Ralph Smith owned a trucking company. Betty Smith, his silver-haired wife, was "nurse of the year" at a convalescent center.

I am writing in response to the letter to the editor written by Betty Smith of Westminster, with which I am in total agreement. The letter made clear sense to me because my son was terminated after three months as a HVAC Mechanic 1. He was given no reason, only that they need not give one. He worked for a private company for five years after graduation and earned his journeymans license. He was very excited to be given the opportunity to work for Carroll County government since his father has been a federal employee for 33 years.

Betty Smith didn't want to leave her home in Eldersburg, but when businesses began opening left and right on nearby Liberty Road, she felt she had no choice. "My investment was down to nothing," Smith recalled. In 1987, she and her family moved to quiet, little Uniontown. That was the first time Smith, a Democratic candidate for county commissioner, felt her life being disrupted by the growth that has gradually changed Carroll during the past 35 years. Now, she's campaigning on the notion that she, more than any other candidate, is committed to slowing residential growth so school, water, emergency and road services can catch up. "I was so affected by it," she said.

Betty L. Smith, a self-employed marketing consultant and picture framer who quit the Republican Party to protest its gun raffle, became the third Democratic candidate to enter the race for county commissioner yesterday. The 53-year-old Uniontown resident might find the Sept. 10 primary ballot less-crowded than when she ran four years ago as a Republican. She finished eighth of 14 candidates in 1998. Smith resigned as vice chairwoman of the Republican Central Committee last summer in protest of the party's gun raffle fund-raiser, an event she called "insensitive and irresponsible."

Sun's potshots won't compromise Smith's integrity Mike Burns took Betty Smith to task for her criticism of local Republican gun raffles ("Take your best shot at this moving target," column, March 18). First, let me make it clear that as a life member of the National Rifle Association as well as the Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, I don't share all Ms. Smith's views. As a matter of fact, I'm sorry I didn't win that Beretta last year. Nevertheless, I've known Ms. Smith for years (we used to work together at the state's attorney's office)
