Gov. Martin O'Malley found a receptive, if tiny, audience on Capitol Hill yesterday for his presentation on Maryland's State Stat system. Sen. Thomas R. Carper of Delaware was the only member of the Government Efficiency subcommittee on hand for the governor's appearance. Carper praised his fellow Democrat and the system for measuring government performance that O'Malley said could be applied to the federal government or "any large human organization." O'Malley said CitiStat, which he implemented as mayor of Baltimore, helped reduce violent crime and the exposure of children to dangerous levels of lead, improved response to pothole complaints and identified more than 5,900 vacant properties for redevelopment.

In a game where the offense lacked its typical energy and the midfield continually gave up ground, the Mount Hebron boys soccer team looked to the other side of the field to save its season. Senior goalie Brad Carper made 17 saves - most of them standard, a few spectacular - to give junior midfielder Matt Schmauder the chance to provide the game-winning goal midway through the second overtime as the No. 3 Vikings got past visiting and No. 4 Fallston, 2-1, to win the Class 3A East region championship.

In "Public schools: the state church" (Opinion * Commentary, Nov. 11), Thomas C. Hunt and James C. Carper state that it is unfair for those people sending their children to private schools to have to pay taxes that are used for public education. They make an excellent point, but they need to take their argument to its logical conclusion. That is, no one who does not benefit directly from public schools should have to pay taxes supporting public education. That means those who have no children should be exempt, as should those parents who children have graduated or have otherwise left the school system.

TWENTY-THREE hundred miles after putting the key in the ignition in Baltimore, we're finally back in the Free State. The idea was to find out what makes men around the world save their pennies to visit a bug-infested river in upstate New York to catch a fish that doesn't even taste good. The answer? "We're crazy," said Tommy Robinson of Baltimore, one of the 200 fishermen competing in the World Carp Championship. They didn't smell too good, either, but you don't tell that to a crazy man. The championship was not for the faint of heart or olfactory nerves.

There's whining. There's kvetching. And then there's carping. Put Tommy Robinson Jr. in the last category. The Baltimore angler and his fishing partner, Mark Metzger of Silver Spring, went down to Texas this spring to see if the boasting about the state's carp was all hat and no cattle. He was happy to learn that, if anything, the size of Lone Star State carp is bigger than the talk. Not only that, but the city slicker finished fourth in the Third Annual Austin Team Challenge with a total weight that included a carp that weighed 45 pounds, 9 ounces.
