It's been more than a decade since Maureen Rogers helped relocate the Burtonsville Players - a nonprofit theater group that's performed in the Laurel area for more than 35 years - to the Laurel Mill Playhouse on the west end of Main Street. Well established on Main Street for her networking as the little theater's public liaison and artistic director, Rogers has taken on another job toward the other end of the street. Last year, she was hired as administrator of the Laurel Board of Trade, and works in the group's small, tucked-away office on Main Street.

When I tell my students that most of the work of a copy editor is to take texts that are flawed and leave them merely mediocre, they look faintly stunned. (I get that a lot.)  Most journalism is routine, therefore average, therefore mediocre. There should be no shame in the simple conveying of such information, accurately, clearly, succinctly.  Journalists go wrong when they display a misplaced ambition to make routine news stories literary, typically with mixed or strained metaphors, pretentious allusions, and overwrought diction.

You could learn a thing or two riding a bus through Ann Arundel County.Take Len Adler, for instance.The president of Adler Development took the Anne Arundel Trade Council's second annual executive bus tour yesterday to scout potential retail sites, and discovered his own store.His company owns Total Crafts in Annapolis, but it also runs a store on East Ordnance Road in Glen Burnie."I didn't realize Glen Burnie was part of Anne Arundel until today," the bemused chief executive officer said after the bus of out-of-town CEOs, chamber and county officials and representatives of county businesses rolled from City Dock in Annapolis to Baltimore-Washington International Airport to the Piney Orchard development in Odenton.

Pledging that Anne Arundel countians will not be left as "orphans," two of four Congress members-elect talked tax reform, health care and the deficit Tuesday with county business people.Since redistricting parceled the county out to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th congressional districts, county residents have worried they'd be forgotten on Capitol Hill.Arundel, which has elected its own member of Congress for two decades, has no majority advantage in any of those districts."For the first time, Anne Arundel County is part of four different congressional districts and without a resident member of Congress," said Bertrand A. Mason, president of the Anne Arundel Trade Council.

It was a typical business breakfast networking meeting, like any of the dozen or so that are held in Howard County on a weekly or monthly basis. Business leaders and owners met to discuss issues they face and to exchange ideas. They also seek prayer requests. It may be this feature that makes Praise Partners International different from other business networking groups. The group, which meets monthly at Bob Evans in the Columbia restaurant park, is composed of business people who are striving to incorporate Bible-based principles into their daily business practices.

The ladies wore gloves and hats, the tables were set with the good china and the white lilies filled the front hall with the scents of spring. Nannette K. Mitchell, the hostess, had misplaced the silverware she uses for entertaining, so she reluctantly rented stainless steel flatware and served creamed chicken in pastry shells, rice, string beans, peas, baked chicken, molded ice cream and iced tea with lemon slices. Someone recited a poem, another woman played "Climb Every Mountain" on the grand piano and everyone listened attentively to a speech about justice, murmuring politely at the most rousing parts.

The Sun editorial board never fails to agree with every tax and fee our governor thrusts upon the citizens of Maryland ("The rain tax sham," April 18). The governor has created 37 new taxes and fees during his seven years in office, and though he claims to have made cuts in the state budget, the facts show the budget has increased substantially. Rather than ask questions, The Sun prefers to take a few cheap shots at a report done on Fox News, which actually researched the story.

Many successful people of today are absolutely convinced that the "virtuousness" of successful entrepreneurs and business people doing what they do creates opportunities for the benefit of all in our society. I truly don't doubt that. That is exactly how Rockefeller and Roosevelt and Kennedy and Buffett and on and on felt. These people were as capitalistic as they come. What those people had and what is missing from many today who champion this "virtuousness" is two other principles.

If experienced business people instead of lawyers were running the Maryland General Assembly, it would be a no-brainer that you don't over-saturate a limited market that depends on discretionary spending from family funds. Of course, this seems to be too difficult for the lawyers in the legislature to grasp. F. Cordell

When Heather Ziehl lost her job in sales and marketing operations two years ago due to the failing economy, she became a “true housewife.” And what started as an inside joke about the “Housewives of Bel Air” amongst friends, quickly developed into a full-fledged nonprofit organization helping people build professional and personal connections. “Our mission is basically to bring people together and create awareness about nonprofits and charities. We want to give back to the community,” says Ziehl, 34, of Bel Air. “I'm a very positive person, and I start each day with a positive quote.

In a New Yorker cartoon from thirty years ago, a man turns to another in a bar and asks belligerently, " Hopefullywise ? Did I understand you to say hopefullywise ?" There you have the hopefully brouhaha encapsulated. The Wrong People, the sloppy, trendy vulgarians who tacked -wise indiscriminately onto adjectives were the same sort who would use hopefully as a sentence adverb. It's easy to identify the Wrong People: They belong to some group we like to look down on (advertising, say, or business people in general)

Finally, Mitt Romney admitted publicly what too many Republican politicians - and plenty of Democrats, too - really think about we, the people. "Corporations are people," the former Massachusetts governor pronounced. And there you have it: Our inalienable rights, as Americans, or more broadly as humans, turn out to be neither special nor exclusive. The unavoidable implication of Mr. Romney's statement is that corporations should have the same rights as citizens. Corporations and people are similar in some ways, of course.

It's the bump in the road to paradise, the bottleneck between you and the beach. Before you get to the ocean, you have to get over the Bay Bridge. Before you can get to the Bay Bridge you have to get past someone like Arlene Roberts. She is in one of the toll booths, waiting to take your $2.50 if only you can get through the inevitable Route 50 crush of too many cars, engines and occupants overheating. Roberts, by contrast, is the happiest person for miles around. "I like working the summers because when the traffic backs up, I get a rush," she says, eyes glinting rather devilishly, hands miming how quickly she can take your money and give back change.

In some high schools in Maryland, students who are Latino and thinking about going to college often feel isolated and insecure, always separate from the culture around them. Jesus Zelaya, 16, is the only Latino in his advanced-level classes at Richard Montgomery High School in Silver Spring. Melba Garcia, 14, is one of about 10 Latinos in her class of 300 students at school in Olney. To help students like them, the Hispanic College Fund is holding weeklong seminars around the nation, including one at Towson University this week, to help propel students to college.
