THE PARENTING OF ADULT children is never more complex than during college summer vacation, when there seems to be no agreement about who is in charge. The kids have just finished nine months of doing what they darn well please, and we have spent nine months blissfully unaware of what they were doing. It is a rude shock when these two worlds collide in summer. Recently, my daughter, a rising junior in college, declined to bend to my will. When I expressed my exasperation, she said, sweetly and with a gentle hug, "Mummy, you know I always take what you have to say into consideration."

We add our voices to the outrage expressed by our fellow citizens concerning the nomination process to replace Baltimore City Councilman William Cole ( "District 11 do-over?" Oct. 2). With all due respect, that process can only be described as a complete farce. We urge the council to reject Eric Costello's nomination to fill the seat and send the nominating committee back to begin anew. In addition, the nominating committee should be directed to give full and fair consideration to all those who applied for the position and to take into consideration the letters in support of as well as in opposition to each of the candidates.

The Orioles announced Friday that right-handed reliever Preston Guilmet, who was designated for assignment off the 40-man roster Saturday to make room for infielder Alexi Casilla, has been traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash considerations. Guilmet, acquired in a minor league trade with the Cleveland Indians in April, was shuttled between the major leagues and Triple-A Norfolk frequently this season, making 10 appearances with the Orioles and 40 for the Tides. He allowed six earned runs and eight hits in 10 1/3 innings in the majors.

I'm not sure when was the last time the words were uttered by a free agent baseball player about Baltimore -- probably 15 years or so ago. Veteran left-hander Randy Wolf, who agreed to terms with the Orioles on Thursday and will be activated and available to pitch for the club Friday in New York, seemed sincere when he said it Thursday just inside the home clubhouse. "With the teams that I talked to, I was excited with the Orioles' possibilities of winning," Wolf said Thursday afternoon in the Orioles' clubhouse.

This week, Amy Reed, RD, LDN, weighs in on milk. When you are standing in the milk aisle in the grocery store, what are you looking for? Are you lactose intolerant? Do you have a milk allergy? Do you dislike the taste of certain milk products? Are you vegan? How much money do you want to spend on milk?

Like thousands of others across Maryland, our staff just celebrated our first Purple Friday of the season. We have a long-running office football pool, and each week a miniature traveling statue of Edgar Allan Poe - clad in a Ravens jersey - rests on the winner's desk as a trophy. Though we haven't converted every employee into a tried-and-true Ravens fan (yet), we all agree we're pleased the Ravens' coaching staff took swift action to terminate Ray Rice's contract following Monday's release of the video showing him assaulting his then-fiancée in February.

How would you like to receive a quarterly check from the federal government? Most taxpayers would surely be happy with such an arrangement. But here's the really good part: What if by accepting that check you were also helping your country reduce a form of air pollution that is a threat to human health and responsible for climate change while simultaneously developing a rational, sustainable energy policy? That sounds too good to be true, but remarkably, it may not be. Under The Healthy Climate and Family Security Act introduced last week by Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, companies that drill for oil and gas or mine for coal would have to purchase through auction a permit to do so. Not a dime of the resulting revenue would be kept by the government but would simply be forwarded as checks to every man, woman and child.

Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance has offered his assurances that the Loch Raven Elementary School will not be demolished. Dance wrote in response to an April 30 letter from County Councilman David Marks and members of the General Assembly who represent the Towson area. "Let me assure you that we have gone on record that Loch Raven Elementary School will be a renovation/addition," he wrote. "There are no plans to demolish the building. " The 66-year-old school building hasn't welcomed elementary school students since 1982 but Dance last year proposed moving the children of Halstead Academy to a new school on the Loch Raven site.

Maryland assistant coach Bino Ranson, who reportedly was one of three candidates recommended for the Coppin State head coaching job, is no longer under consideration, an athletic department spokesman said Friday. Ranson could not be reached for comment. Spokesman Rob Knox said he did not know who was going to get the job. An announcement will be made Tuesday. Longtime coach Fang Mitchell, after 28 seasons at the school, did not have his contract renewed last month. Ranson, who grew up in Baltimore, was one of five candidates interviewed earlier this week by athletic director Derrick Ramsey, who could not be reached for comment.

Maryland's 6-5 loss to Notre Dame in Friday's Atlantic Coast Conference semifinals was made worse by an ankle injury suffered by senior attackman Mike Chanenchuk. Chanenchuk, the No. 7 Terps' leader in goals (28) and assists (16), was shut out in that game, ending a streak of 35 straight contests with at least a point. But of greater concern was his health for the remainder of the season. Terps coach John Tillman described Chanenchuk's injury as “not bad.” “He got some treatment over the weekend,” Tillman said during his weekly conference call on Tuesday morning.

When Navy opens the season this Saturday against VMI at noon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, the team will be represented by some familiar household names like long-stick midfielder Pat Kiernan and attackmen Sam Jones and Tucker Hull. The squad will also feature some fresh faces. At least four freshmen are expected to start for the Midshipmen and a few others could contribute, too. It might seem like an alarmingly high number of rookies for a program that requires discipline and execution to run its schemes on offense and defense, but coach Rick Sowell sounded confident Monday about the freshmen's ability to perform under fire.

HALF an inch beneath the surface of this week's triumphant rhetoric about the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court's ruling in Brown vs. Board of Education is a prevailing view that Brown has a mixed, even disappointing legacy -- that it engendered dreams of racial integration that have failed to come true.That assessment is grossly unfair.The Brown decision was meant to end legally segregated public school systems and it did so, in a way that forever changed the racial consciousness of the nation.

Once upon a time, J. Bradley Barnhart worked for an American company. That was before his employer, the once-venerable Royal Business Machines Corp., turned Japanese.It started with a gradual move toward importing foreign typewriters and copiers, German as well as Japanese. Then all U.S. manufacturing eventually stopped. Mr. Barnhart, who worked in the company's Baltimore office, places the blame squarely on Connecticut-based Royal and its inability to make a competitive product.The difference between the old copiers Royal used to make and the ones sold by its new Japanese owner, the Konica Corp.
