With deadlines looming for a projected opening date, the developers of a Victorian restaurant in the town's 106-year-old train depot got a reprieve from the Maryland Historic Trust yesterday on an easement problem that has plagued the project for months.Jack Saum of Eldersburg and Charlie Cullum of New Windsor, the restaurant's developers, have been unable to restore a section of the building's outside platform due to easement constraints placed on it by the trust."We were going to restore the platform, but the trust indicated we couldn't do that because a portion of our platform is 6 inches higher than the original, and they're requesting we lower it," Saum said.

The North and South squads entered Saturday afternoon's Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic tied at 4 wins all-time. Maybe it was only fitting, then, that the ninth edition went to overtime. The South, which trailed by as many as seven goals at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium, didn't lead for a single second of regulation Saturday, but it got a goal from Sykesville's Mikey Wynne just 49 seconds into the extra frame to seal the 17-16 comeback win. "We had a ton of confidence," Wynne, a Notre Dame recruit, said afterward.

The state public defender's office says that it deliberately underestimated its funding needs in recent years in an effort to stay within the Glendening administration's "unrealistic" spending constraints. In a reply to a critical report by legislative auditors, the agency acknowledges under-budgeting in some areas while using an "artificially high" estimate of staff turnover to hold down its budget requests. The result, according to auditors, is that the agency has consistently been unable to operate within the budget enacted by the General Assembly.

The city is looking for ways to ease the property tax burden on hundreds of homeowners who received unexpectedly high bills last month, officials said, as Baltimore reckons with past errors in a popular credit for historic renovations. The tax increases, which can be in the hundreds or thousands of dollars, have hit more than 300 people who had been underpaying because of miscalculations. Henry J. Raymond, deputy director of the Finance Department, cautioned that the city's options are limited.

Paris.--The critical importance of institutions to political stability is evident in three cases in the headlines at this moment: the Russian, French and Italian.What is most striking about the convoluted political conflict that has gone on in Moscow, pitting Boris Yeltsin against a parliament led by its speaker, Russian I. Khasbulatov, is that it has taken place almost entirely within the fragile political and judicial institutions of Russia today.It has only briefly and tentatively gone to the street -- and drawn back.

THE IDEA made perfect sense. Baltimore and Howard counties were building high schools. Why not share designs and contain costs, especially at a time when construction prices are rising astronomically? A school for 1,500 students cost $24 million just two years ago; it could total $40 million this year. Construction prices are soaring as the demand for quality contractors and building material far exceeds the supply. Each year, the state's Interagency Committee for State Public School Construction estimates the square-foot price of building and renovating schools.

The General Assembly's failure to move forward with the re-regulation of the electric industry this year is surely not the final word on the subject. It certainly doesn't indicate any sudden embrace of deregulation, the dubious enterprise that proved to be. More likely it reflects the challenge of getting lawmakers to seriously address a topic that is both substantively complex and fraught with high-voltage politics. Gov. Martin O'Malley didn't help matters much by submitting the legislation so late in the session.

Convinced that Baltimore County has too many run-down older homes and apartments that might attract troublesome tenants, the Ruppersberger administration is moving to create a local cash fund -- free of federal constraints -- to finance demolitions and renovations.County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger's proposed capital budget earmarks about $4.2 million for that purpose, including $1.1 million left from bond referendums. In addition, a $2 million bond issue for community improvements will appear on November's ballot.

When units from Ellicott City's fire Station 8 roll out on a cardiac arrest call, each crew member already knows who will start chest compressions, who will operate the defibrillator and who will provide artificial respiration to get oxygen flowing to the brain and heart. It might sound like an obvious plan. But the advance coordination is part of a new effort by Howard County's first responders to get quicker and more efficient help to those in urgent need. "Believe it or not, this is groundbreaking," said Dr. Kevin G. Seaman, the medical director of the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services.

Baltimore Fashion Week may be under way, but the showcase of models and designers is missing its star announcer. Due to contract disputes, Ted Williams, the homeless Ohio man with the golden baritone who became an overnight sensation earlier this year, won't be manning the microphone this weekend, organizers said Friday. Fashion Week founder Sharan Nixon said she canceled Williams' contract because he made last-minute requests which soured the deal — accusations Williams' camp denies.

Demonstrations at Tiananmen 20 years ago grew out of a paradox that had been building in China since 1978, all through the era of rapid economic reform. To achieve its aims, the Chinese Communist Party wished to liberate people economically while continuing to constrain them politically. A version of this same tension persists today. Following the disastrous Cultural Revolution (1965-1970s), the party no longer could base its legitimacy on Maoist socialism. Marxist-Leninist ideology was virtually dead.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- The director of Shifa Hospital, which with 600 beds is the largest in Gaza, has an abrupt bedside manner when it comes to describing the ailments of his institution. Offering no comfort, promising no silver linings, Dr. Ibrahim el Habbash matter-of-factly listed the hospital's growing list of problems. Doctors there are rationing their dwindling stocks of anesthetics by postponing all elective surgeries, said Habbash. Nurses have nearly run out of bandages. Breast cancer patients are receiving just two of the three chemotherapy drugs they need for treatment.

The Patuxent Research Refuge, long a popular and free-of-charge destination for Howard County Scout troops, school trips and family outings, is cutting back its hours and activities because of budget constraints. "We have reduced the number of programs we offer here," said Brad Knudsen, manager of the 12,750-acre federal research refuge since 2001. The Scout workshops, which always fill up within minutes of opening for registration, will be cut to six in 2006, from more than twice that number in previous years.

The county's first professional modern dance troupe could use a few more fans. MSDC Dance Company entertained a small - but fortunate - audience at the Anne Arundel Community College Humanities Recital Hall last Friday. Baartman featured works dealing with political corruption and manipulation. The title refers to Sara Baartman, a South African slave around the turn of the 19th century who was subject to inhumane treatment. Dance pieces first interpreted Baartman's life, then moved to explore the plight of contemporary women.

Proclaiming a "fiscal emergency" in one of the nation's richest counties, the Howard County executive said yesterday that he will have to raise taxes next year even though he intends to cut government spending by 10 percent and hold the line on budgets for schools, libraries and the community college.Executive Charles I. Ecker would not say how much higher the property tax rate will be for the fiscal year that starts July 1, but he noted that simply matching the current year's $286.4 million budget would require a 64-cent increase in the tax rate, $2.49 for each $100 of assessed value.

Russian jet attacks heighten U.S. fears WASHINGTON - The destruction of two Russian airliners in suspected suicide bombings Aug. 24 has alarmed U.S. officials, exposing a gap in airport security that authorities here have identified but not yet closed. "It is sort of your worst nightmare come true," said Rep. John L. Mica, a Florida Republican and chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Aviation. "Even though it has happened thousands of miles away, it just ushers in a whole new era of potential problems and disasters."
