The county's state legislators said a new plan for state legislativedistricts sent to the governor last week is much kinder to Howard County than an earlier plan, but it still slices up generous portions of Columbia, Ellicott City and Elkridge and serves them to Baltimore County.Like the current map, the plan recommended to the governor puts the county in three senatorial districts. The one recommended Dec. 2 by the Governor's Redistricting Advisory Committee carved the county into five Senate districts, two controlled by Baltimore County, one by Carroll County.

CARVING UP DISTRICT 13From: Martin G. MaddenDelegate, District 13BClarksvilleSince my election last year, I have written few letters to the editor. However, Delegate Virginia Thomas' recent pronouncements (Howard County Sun, Dec. 15, Readers write, "Thomas to testify") on legislative redistricting and her allegation that I "chose tosave the Laurel area that straddles Howard and Prince George's Counties" rather than protect the district I represent have forced me to write.I believe that an objective observer of the facts will see that if anyone is individually responsible for the unfair division of District 13, it is Virginia Thomas, not me.On Dec. 1, it was reported that Delegate Thomas was hedging her bets on her own redistricting plan for District 13, which she had submitted to the Governor's Advisory Committee.

MARYLANDERS don't like change. That's the message they give every two years in choosing their members of Congress. Only on rare occasions do they toss out an incumbent. This year, voters again opted to stick with the status quo.That was good news for Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., the freshman congressman who was targeted earlier in the year as the most vulnerable in the state delegation. Democrats could not dislodge the ambitious Timonium resident, whose adroit opposition to a public housing program in Baltimore County struck an emotional chord with some eastern Baltimore countians.

A legal dispute over who should pay to guard and escort inmates while they're in a county District Court could end up costing the state millions of dollars, depending on how a judge decides the case.Prince George's County, which has sued the state, argues that the county's responsibility ends once a prisoner is taken to the courthouse.Managing inmates while there is part of providing security at District Court -- a state responsibility, the county maintains.But the state contends that escorting prisoners and guarding holding cells is a custodial rather than a security function -- one the county is responsible for providing at its expense.

Harford County Democrats have decided not to appeal a court decision and will remain shut out of the process that sets council district lines for the next decade. Instead, they are looking to a broad review of the county charter to help protect their party's interests in the future. Democrats, who once dominated Harford, officially became the minority party last year. The party didn't field candidates in several Republican strongholds, and saw their share of the 2010 vote dip below 15 percent - the minimum eligibility standard for participation on the council redistricting commission.

Stephen L. Verch, who founded the Back River Restoration Committee, is on the ballot along with Cathy A. Bevins, who worked for years as the county executive's east-side constituent service assistant, and Todd Schuler, who is a member of the Maryland House of Delegates, as Bartenfelder — now running for county executive — was when he was first elected to the seat in 1994.

WITH CONGRESS almost evenly divided between the parties, the battle for control of the House has been the most common theme running through congressional campaigns in Maryland. Two of the most competitive House races in the country are being waged here, and Maryland voters could potentially tip the balance.

Of the three incumbents seeking re-election to the Baltimore County Council, Kenneth N. Oliver might be facing the toughest primary battle. Six Democratic opponents are working to unseat the two-term councilman. They are campaigning on how to spur economic development, improve schools and enhance public safety. Oliver is running on what he has done for constituents. With no Republican candidate in the race, the tight Democratic primary will likely determine who represents the district that includes Woodlawn, Randallstown, Owings Mills and Reisterstown.
