WASHINGTON -- The message on the tape recorder was shockingly profane and chillingly blunt: "I'm going to blow his [expletive deleted] brains out."More than the tearful testimony, more than the stories of women murdered or left paralyzed, the voice on Kathleen Krueger's home answering machine underscored the terror experienced by victims of stalking. For members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the taped death threat was doubly disturbing because it was directed at one of their own.Ms. Krueger, the wife of Sen. Bob Krueger of Texas, played the tape at a committee hearing yesterday to try to explain what it's like to be the target of an inexplicable obsession.

I pass no judgment on the committee members charged with picking a nominee for the vacancy in the City Council's 11th District. I do not know their situations or any pressures they may have been under. In my heart of hearts, I feel nearly all of them agreed to serve on the committee because they believed they could make a positive impact in their community and a responsible choice for the district. The City Council members serving on the committee seemed deferential to its other members as representative of the district, a district the council members do not live in or serve directly.

For three decades Dorothy "Dot" Maurer has been a major contributor to beautification efforts in the Town of Bel Air. Earlier this month, Maurer was recognized by town government leaders, associates and friends for her work with the Bel Air Appearance and Beautification Committee, which she joined in 1983. She is stepping down after serving as the committee's chairman for many years. "Everyone agrees wholeheartedly that Bel Air is the way it is because of Dot's attention to detail and the flowers," Mayor Edward Hopkins said as he presented a proclamation to Maurer during the May 6 town meeting.

QUEENSTOWN -- Amy Leaberry, a Republican Party activist, was the leading vote-getter among 14 candidates two years ago for a seat on the seven-member GOP state central committee in Queen Anne's County. She's also a 33-year-old stay-at-home mom who has three children younger than age 4, the youngest of whom, 3-month-old Thomas, is nursing. All of which, Leaberry figures, ought to have worked out just fine in a party that bills itself as "pro-family." Instead, Leaberry has resigned her post with a flurry of news releases and recriminations charging fellow central committee members with "breastfeeding discrimination."

After a heated meeting, members of the Baltimore City Democratic Central Committee have selected the director of the Oliver Community Association to replace Del. Hattie Harrison, who was the longest-serving member of the House of Delegates.  Committee members voted Friday to appoint Nina Harper to fill the open seat in the 45th District, which includes much of northeast and east Baltimore. She did not respond to a call seeking comment Monday. Scherod C. Barnes, of the central committee, said the full committee would likely approve Harper's nomination Wednesday, sending the pick to Gov. Martin O'Malley for final approval.

The Carroll County Republican Central Committee has ousted one of its nine members, but the action will have no impact on the selection of a candidate to fill the delegate seat recently vacated by Carmen Amedori, committee members said yesterday. "These are two separate issues that are not connected in any way," said Michelle Jefferson, committee chairwoman. "We removed one of our members. This was not a rift, but more of a housekeeping issue." In a meeting Tuesday, committee members followed the bylaws and demanded the resignation of their colleague, Joe Burns Jr. "This was done in executive session and we cannot discuss the reasons," Jefferson said.

The hard work of deciding which Howard County teen-agers should go to which of 11 county high schools is kicking into high gear as a citizens' advisory committee has begun the painful process this week of drawing new boundary lines sure to leave many kids and parents unhappy. In fact, some 2,000 students are likely to be going to a different high school in the fall of 2002 as a result of the mapping effort. David Drown, the Howard County school system transportation coordinator who has taken on the additional responsibility of helping the committee consider how to shape high school districts, gave the first maps of proposed boundaries to committee members early this week and is bracing for committee members' comments on his ideas Monday night.

Talk about a party living up to its name. The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore's "OUT- rageous Gala" fit the billing. Guests were encouraged to dress outrageously. Some did. And some just took in the view. Like that of Cybele the Fire Eater, clad in a leopard-print unitard, performing her act on the sidewalk as 400 guests arrived for the bash at the Maryland Institute College of Art's administration building. Oh, and let's not forget the adult cherubs, in feathered-wing finery, also greeting the newcomers.

UPDATE: A decision on this rule has been postponed until next week. The Senate Rules Committee is expected to vote Wednesday on a proposal that would shed some light on one of the darker corners of Annapolis: the committee voting session. Sen. Allan Kittleman, a Howard County Republican, made a pitch to the panel Tuesday for a proposal to record audio of the session where standing Senate committees vote on whether to kill legislation or send it to the floor. The panel gave Kittleman's proposal a respectful hearing but deferred a decision for a day. Senate floor sessions and committee hearings are already recorded and available online, but voting sessions are not. Though the voting sessions are open to the public, often they take place with nobody present except members and staff.

Seven-time Cy Young Award-winner Roger Clemens is on trial today - again - for allegedly lying to Congress, and that means the spotlight will again find Brian McNamee, the pitcher's former personal trainer. McNamee has said he injected Clemens on numerous occasions with steroidsand human growth hormone. But the man I'll be thinking about is Andy Pettitte, Clemens' longtime friend and teammate. Here's the thing about steroid cases - they have the potential to rip up friendships and clubhouses.

When Baltimore County Republicans vote in primary elections every four years, they also cast ballots for the chairman of their local party. Party leaders want to change that, saying the county central committee should pick its chief. The county GOP is the only party organization in Maryland whose chairman is elected at large. This week, state Sen. J.B. Jennings, a Baltimore County Republican, introduced a measure in Annapolis that would let the county party's central committee — rather than the general population — elect its leader.

After Dr. Mark Midei was accused of implanting unnecessary heart stents in hundreds of patients at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, a Maryland Health Care Commission committee began developing safeguards to prevent a repeat situation. But now, one of the committee's members - Dr. John Chung-Yee Wang, a former colleague of Midei's who heads the cardiac catheterization lab at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore - is himself accused of improper stenting in three separate legal claims.

Nearly half the members of Congress are millionaires, according to an analysis of net worth by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. The center found median net worth for a member of the House to be $725,000; for a senator it was $2.4 million. (The value of family homes was not included in the analysis.) Congressional freshmen - those elected in the tea party-inspired revolt of November 2010 - are among the financial elite, too. In fact, 60 percent of freshmen senators and 40 percent of rookie representatives have net worth in the millions.

Quick: Spell a 16-letter word meaning 150th anniversary. Sesqu …. icenten …. ni…. Oh, never mind. Or perhaps you got it right on the first try … without looking in the dictionary? … or doing a Google search? For the record, "sesquicentennial" is the correct spelling of this fancy word for 150th anniversary. It's the tricky spelling of this seldom-used word — let's face it: how often does a sesquicentennial roll around, after all? — that prompted the former Carroll County Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee to officially change its name.
