As legislators convene in Annapolis for a special session on electricity rates, the leader of Harford's delegation will likely abstain from the debate, despite casting a vote for deregulation six years ago. Del. Barry Glassman, a northern Harford Republican who works as a claims adjuster for BGE, said the ethics counsel for the House of Delegates has advised him to stay away from the vote to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest. Earlier this year, Glassman abstained from voting on the House bill that passed during the regular session.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Larry Bishop drops gingerly through a hole in the roof onto the living room floor. Even with wet debris everywhere in this abandoned home, it's as if he has stepped into a time capsule sealed more than a month ago, in the last hours before Hurricane Andrew changed south Dade County forever.The coffee table is stacked with videos -- "Fantasia" and "The Little Mermaid." Next to them is a Hurricane Preparations Guide opened to a kids' page of "Weather Facts and Fun." Down the hall, the main bathroom still smells sweetly of soap and skin lotion, although a few blades of grass sprout from a mound of rubble, and the ceiling is open to blue sky.Two framed needlepoint works hang undisturbed on opposite walls in the ruin of the master bedroom.
