Maybe she wasn't Hon material after all. Former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager and her husband, Henry Hager, vacated their Federal Hill home more than two years ago, after the power couple left Baltimore for the Big Apple. But as long as they still owned property here -- and in particular, an "exquisite 3br-2.5ba end townhouse w/garage in federal hill, circa 1880" according to the listing on the real estate site homesnap.com -- we held out hope that the Hagers would once again succumb to the charms of Charm City.

The tentative award to the low bidder for the upgrade of the area's water meters may not prove to be for the best ( "Water meter bid is backed," Nov. 5). Wouldn't it be a prudent for the award to be predicated on the successful low bidder to prove themselves by modifying a small section of the city's meters before tackling the entire area? In my humble opinion and based on what I read, it reminded me of the old saying, "When in doubt, do nothing. " Bernard E. Helinski, Baltimore

Bill Bleich calls the teachers' signing stipend a "bribe" ("Reject the contract," Oct. 13) He teaches English and drama, but he does not know that a bribe is something given to induce a person to do wrong or commit a crime. He says merit pay will pressure teachers to be less supportive of each other and act in a more self-centered way and then immediately and inconsistently goes on to say teachers are more highly motivated than administrators and selflessly devote large amounts of time to student activities.

What remains on his contract - five years and $114 million - is a crippling figure for most franchises. If they were to somehow remove the Rodriguez albatross it won't be because he purchased banned substances. The Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program precludes teams from taking punitive action beyond penalties the Commissioner's Office imposes.
