While Senate colleagues halted proceedings during the special legislative session to applaud Harford County Sen. J. Robert Hooper for nearly nine years of service, county Republicans began the task of looking for his successor. Hooper, 71 and in frail health, walked into the Senate chamber Thursday, ready to work on the tax package one day after announcing his resignation. He arrived in the middle of a colleague's speech on increasing the sales tax. The Republican from Street, who has represented District 35 since 1999, received a standing ovation from senators, staff and observers in the balcony.

When 75 people attend an Anne Arundel County Republican Central Committee meeting, something is up. This week's gathering, which had to be moved to a larger venue to accommodate the expected crowd, promised political theater and did not disappoint. The result was just as promised: By a vote of 10-2, chairman Mike Collins was ousted. But before that, there was (failed) maneuvering to quash public comment, followed by a (failed) effort to limit it. Then came the impassioned speeches, telling central committee members that the future of the county and state Republican party hinged on the decision they were about to make.

Less than a year after being elected chairman of the Anne Arundel County Republican Central Committee, Michael Collins is facing a mutiny. The behind-the-scenes campaign is playing out publicly, however, through a steady chorus of statements and leaked memos posted in the blogosphere. Among those leading the charge is Brian Griffiths, a 27-year-old who lost a bid for a Central Committee seat last fall and has been blogging for more than two years at brian griffiths.com. He obtained and posted a letter sent by the Central Committee's vice chairman asking Collins to step down, and later displayed Collins' rebuttal.

The 18-hour workdays are gone. So are the early mornings spent hanging from the back of his sanitation company's garbage trucks. But, state Sen. J. Robert Hooper said he is intent on returning to Annapolis for his ninth legislative session despite a series of medical setbacks. Earlier this month, Hooper, 70, was hospitalized briefly after suffering a minor heart attack. He also had been undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer. He thought he had beat the disease last year until it returned in the summer.

Democrats find themselves in the unusual position of scrambling to find candidates to challenge the four Republican incumbents in Anne Arundel County Council races this fall.

One battleground is council District 1, in the northern tier of the county, where the candidates are seeking the seat being vacated by Democrat Pamela G. Beidle.

Red Cross thanks volunteer responders As the volunteer chair of the Central Maryland Chapter of the American Red Cross, it is my privilege to work with many dedicated volunteers. National Fire Prevention Week ended on Oct. 11, making it an appropriate time to publicly express my appreciation for those volunteers who assist with local disaster response. Many people don't realize that when the local fire department responds to a home fire, the Red Cross also answers the call. Our unsung heroes are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, often leaving behind friends, loved ones and warm beds in the middle of the night to meet with those affected by disaster.
