Dreams don't die, even in the worst recession in memory, which is why Sean Costello of Ellicott City brought his family to Howard County Executive Ken Ulman's annual budget hearing to bolster his plea for a 50-meter indoor swimming facility. Costello and other pool boosters, along with people from Elkridge who want a new firehouse, a larger library, a new elementary school and a potential high school site, added to the often-heartfelt pleas from people representing service nonprofits not to cut already diminished state funding.

Letter to The Aegis | April 30, 2013
Editor: All citizens of Harford County should be dismayed by County Executive Craig's proposed FY2014 Budget. Despite his claims of being a life-long educator, despite Harford County taking in more revenue than ever before, County Executive Craig has once again shown his misplaced priorities and lack of dedication to our schools. I am disappointed that the County Executive has so little regard for the hardworking HCPS staff, our schools and our students. In February, over 500 school employees stood up for our schools.

Thirty-nine of them signed up to speak, compared with more than 100 last year.

City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young had a radical thought: that the city's legislative body might actually live up to its role as a co-equal branch of government and exercise some influence in how Baltimore will spend $2.3 billion in the next fiscal year. Not every suggestion he made for what spending should be cut, what new funds should be used and what additional spending should be authorized was good. But his main priority — freeing up additional funds for recreation centers, after school programs and other youth services — was certainly valid.

Baltimore city CEO Andres Alonso told city council leaders Tuesday that the school system is not in the financial position to inherit recreation centers that are slated for closure in the city budget, after being peppered by council members about the system's ability to bail out endangered youth programs. Following a presentation on the school system's $1.31 billion budget-- presented last week and due to be approved by the school board on May 22-- Alonso was asked by City Council President Bernard"Jack" Young to clarify the system's stance on taking over rec centers, saying that he was dubious about the option given that the system doesn't even have enough money to maintain its own school facilities.

Anne Arundel County residents attending hearings this week lauded school Superintendent Kevin Maxwell's recommended $986.2 million operating budget and encouraged the school board to adopt it and the County Council to help fund it. Maxwell presented his recommendations at two public hearings. The proposed budget comes at a time when concerns over maintaining the quality of education amid a stagnant economy are high and the school system and County Executive John Leopold are at odds over per-pupil funding.

Anne Arundel County school officials are seeking public support for Superintendent Kevin Maxwell's proposed budget, which the county government has signaled will not be fully funded, during hearings and workshops next week. Last month, Maxwell recommended a $986.2 million operating budget for fiscal year 2013 that, among other things, requests authority to fill 62 additional teaching positions. School officials said the request is $49.5 million more than the fiscal 2012 budget approved by the County Council, with $33.8 million of that to fulfill contract agreements.

In perhaps the most spectacular display of public apathy in Anne Arundel County in more than 30 years, only two members of the public spoke out last night at a public hearing on the county's budget.Presumably to prevent any chance of a riot erupting between the two, a pair of county police officers wearing bulletproof vests and carrying semiautomatic handguns stood guard at the back of the nearly empty 750-seat Glen Burnie High School auditorium.There were two reporters, diligently scribbling notes.
