Once again the Maryland House of Delegates appears poised to allot cuts to public mental health funding that are far more severe than reductions to any other health or disability area in the state budget, a somewhat astounding development, given that the mental health system will be serving 40 percent more people in the upcoming year than it did four years ago, while funding for care has risen just 17 percent. Appropriations Committee members responsible for the cuts to residential services for children with the most severe illnesses tell us they are simply following direction from the state agency overseeing care, which supports a transition to community over institutional care, a policy direction that is strongly supported by providers, families and advocates alike.

As the federal "fiscal cliff" approaches, an important group of Marylanders with a lot on the line has been largely ignored: children. The stakes are immense, because the recession has been hard on Maryland children, with one out of every seven living in poverty. A recent analysis by the nonpartisan Urban Institute found that nearly 120,000 Maryland children live with an unemployed parent - about triple the population of Annapolis. Compared to 2007, that's a 180 percent increase, and when you look at kids living with a long-term unemployed parent, the increase is 320 percent.

Snowmageddon it's not. The snow that's expected in Baltimore later today is not likely to amount to much, according to a meteorologist at the National Weather Service. "There's a chance of some snow later this afternoon and evening in Baltimore, but most of it will fall south of there," meteorologist Brandon Peloquin said Sunday morning, adding that there would be little if any accumulation in the area. The storm is on track to pass eastward through the Carolinas and then out to sea off the Mid-Atlantic coast, he said.

A year ago today, Kevin Anderson announced that he was firing Ralph Friedgen after the longtime Maryland football coach refused to retire. A year ago today, the mess that is now the Maryland football program began to take hold in College Park. While first-year coach Randy Edsall certainly played a major part in the team's embarrassing 2-10 record in 2011, so did Anderson. In fact, Anderson might be even more responsible. Not only did he hire a coach with a mediocre overall record (74-70)

Richmond assistant coach Jamal Brunt called Morehead State's second-round upset of fourth-seeded Louisville this year's "One Shining Moment" in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. With a win Friday night against top-seeded Kansas, Richmond, who knocked out Morehead State last weekend, could provide an even brighter one. The 12th-seeded Spiders, the lowest-seeded team remaining in the tournament, pulled off an upset of their own over fifth-seeded Vanderbilt in the second round before cruising to a 17-point win over Morehead State.

A snowstorm charging up the East Coast largely missed the Baltimore region, playing havoc with the predictions of meteorologists and plans of travelers as forecasts of up to a half-foot of snow amounted to little more than a dusting. But as temperatures dipped after nightfall, state highway officials were watching for icy roads. "You prepare for the worst and hope for the best," said Kellie Boulware of the State Highway Administration. "All in all, the fact that schools aren't in session, people are off for the holiday week, and we didn't have that many travelers on the highway gave our crews a chance to go out and throw down salt.

Maryland might be holding up better than most states, but the deep national recession walloped rank-and-file workers on the lower end of the pay scale, according to a new report by two groups. The Progressive Maryland Education Fund and the Maryland Budget & Tax Policy Institute, which both focus on low- and moderate-income families, said in the study issued Friday that these Marylanders "represent the bulk of the job losses and foreclosures." Median wages fell last year for Marylanders without a bachelor's degree, including an 8 percent drop for those with some college education.

"But when it came, I just chest-trapped it and shot it off my right foot."
