LET'S GET THIS STRAIGHT: Howard Community College trustees have appointed an acting president to lead the campus until they choose an interim president to serve until they select a permanent president.This is one step too many in the process of choosing a leader to replace Dwight A. Burrill, who served for 16 years at the west Columbia school before his retirement took effect Monday. Worse, it is a waste of time and money.There is no need to have two people serving in acting and interim capacities -- terms that are usually synonymous.

The Harford County chapter of the NAACP is calling on a state senator to sit down with the group and outline her reasons for recently demanding the resignation of the community college's board of trustees chairman. State Sen. Nancy Jacobs, a Republican who represents southern Harford County, said Friday that she is backing off recent threats to dissolve the Harford Community College board of trustees if its chief, Bernard F. Barnes Sr., does not step down.
