Republican Charles J. Corcoran plans to cross party lines Tuesday for the first time in 39 years to vote for a Democrat: Susan B. Gray, the feisty challenger in the Howard County executive race.The 67-year-old retiree from Fulton is mad. He believes Howard's government under County Executive Charles I. Ecker betrayed him with its major zoning changes in 1993 -- changes that would increase the density of development and alter forever the rural character of western Howard.And Ms. Gray's candidacy -- and a related referendum that would give voters a say in zoning changes -- have now provided Mr. Corcoran and many others a slow-growth political banner around which to rally.

Most business owners believe in their products, and Alexa Corcoran is no different. Except that she also lives on the meals made by her Maryland enterprise, Let's Dish!, a meal-assembly store that has nine locations in the region and plans for more. Customers at the store put together their own meals to cook at home. "Since 2004, we have ... created over a million dishes," says Corcoran, 34, who invested in the business with her husband, Rick, and a couple of friends. "It's a concept that came when people were saying they wanted easy and convenient meals but also healthy."

FLORENCE Corcoran of Louisiana was in the eighth month of a high-risk pregnancy when her obstetrician ordered hospitalization. But, even after another doctor concurred, court papers allege, Ms. Corcoran's managed-care insurance company wouldn't pay for it -- instead it provided 10 hours a day of home care. A few days later, while the at-home nurse was off duty, the fetus went into distress and died.That might sound like a lawsuit waiting to happen. But, when Ms. Corcoran tried to sue the insurance company, arguing that it had sacrificed her well-being for the sake of saving money, a federal appeals court handed down the bad news: Under the provisions of the 1974 Employment Retirement Income Security Act, the federal law that regulates employer-paid health benefits, Ms. Corcoran could not sue for damages based on pain and suffering.

They were two men on business trips, both fathers of young children, both people whose warmth and energy drew the notice of their communities. And by the vagaries of fate, the two Howard County men - Paul Stidham and Mark Congdon - were both passengers on US Airways Express Flight 5481, which crashed moments after takeoff yesterday in Charlotte, N.C., killing all 21 people on board. In Maryland, as elsewhere, the accident turned a routine day into disaster for loved ones and colleagues.

Painter Sam Gilliam likes to remember his formative years during the early 1960s, shortly after he arrived in Washington from graduate school at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. "The people I hung out with were moving around the art scene trying to figure out how you get to the top," Gilliam recalled of the countless late-night discussions with painters, musicians, dancers and other artists in Washington's cafes and jazz clubs. "We all wanted to know how to be real artists." In 1968, Gilliam hit upon a solution that was as elegant as it was radical: He simply stopped stretching his abstract-expressionist-style canvases on traditional rectangular wooden frames and instead began draping them in loose folds from the wall or ceiling in ways that combined aspects of painting, sculpture and architecture.
