Representatives of Maryland's game machine businesses lost a round in their fight against proposed state regulations they say could cripple the industry. Sen. Paul G. Pinsky, co-chairman of the Joint Committee on Administrative, Legislative and Executive Review, said his panel won't ask that the rules proposed by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission be put on hold to allow for committee hearings. Under the proposed regulations, operators would have to register all their machines with the lottery agency, pay fees for some of them and file reports on when they are moved.

The new Waters of the U.S. rule is designed to clarify that the Clean Water Act protects a variety of important waters, including seasonal and rain-dependent streams, as well as wetlands near rivers and streams. Getting it implemented will depend on support from our members of Congress for the agencies' proposal. It'll affect a lot more than your favorite crab cakes - it could save your job. Think clean water only counts when it comes out of your tap or when you dive in at the beach?

The University of Maryland, University College has a history of experimentation. With its roots in a 1920s night school, the institution expanded in the 1940s and '50s into Europe and Asia to educate military personnel. Then as the Internet flourished, it embraced online learning. Now the state university is experimenting again. This month, President Javier Miyares unveiled a proposal from a group of business leaders he assembled that would tie the university's future more closely to the private sector.

Is there a way to actually unite economic populists on the liberal left and libertarian right? Maybe not. But one promising possibility is the prioritization of American small businesses over powerful, multinational corporate dominance. The events of September 29, 2008, certainly provided a brief glimmer of hope that a hybrid ideological alliance might push back against big business. That day, the U.S. House of Representatives stunned Washington and Wall Street by rejecting the Bush Administration's $700 billion bank bailout, 228 to 205. The Dow Jones Industrial index fell 778 points in a single afternoon, a 7 percent drop.

I landed my first summer job when I was 16. The qualifications were straightforward - possess strong decision-making skills, the ability to negotiate and compromise with colleagues, and the strength to maintain a calm demeanor in the face of withering criticism. For six weeks during the summer of 1972 I was an umpire. I called Little League baseball and men's fast pitch softball games for teams in Baltimore County. Most of the other umpires were grown men, and I have vivid memories of drowning in my oversized mask and chest protector.

A sighting of a bull shark off Sandy Point State Park Monday prompted a brief closure of one of the swimming areas, but the park's manager said the popular Chesapeake Bay beach returned to "business as usual" on Tuesday after seeing no more of the wide-ranging predator. Ranger Steve McCoy, Sandy Point's manager, said a fisherman reported seeing a small bull shark around 5:30 p.m. Monday near the east beach. A ranger walked out on the rock jetty jutting into the water and confirmed seeing some type of shark, McCoy said, so park personnel moved "a handful of people" to the lifeguard-monitored main beach in another area of the park and kept a close watch on the shark.

That's real nice about Martin O'Malley raising close to $800,000 from various supporters who apparently think he could go from Maryland governor to president of the United States some day, maybe even in 2016 if Hillary Clinton decides to become a Re/Max agent. With Maryland in his rear-view mirror, O'Malley continues to travel about the country, helping various Democratic incumbents who face battles in the upcoming midterm elections. That's So'Malley - selfless and always looking out for those who struggle.
