In Maryland it doesn't pay just to watch your speed. You'd better watch where it is you're speeding. In Baltimore and Baltimore County, fewer than 10 percent of speeding tickets charge the driver with exceeding the limit by less than 10 mph. More than half go to people charged with going 20, 30 or even 40 mph faster than allowed. But in Montgomery County, police give 60 percent of speeding tickets to someone charged with going 1 to 9 mph over the limit. Only 20 percent of ticketed motorists are caught for exceeding the limit by more than 20 mph. The stark contrast among jurisdictions was revealed in an analysis by The Sun of statewide District Court records from 2006.

NORTHERN Harford County, an expanse of undulating pastures and old stone churches straight out of a Thomas Cole landscape, is, fittingly, where you'll find one of the more congenial races this election. Republican council candidate Lance Miller's cows graze on one side of a fence; the thoroughbreds of his Democratic opponent, Richard Norling, romp on the other.Mr. Norling, who chairs a committee that advises the Rehrmann administration on planning in Dublin-Darlington, is well versed on land-use matters.

FOR THE past four years, the Baltimore County Council has worked well. Instead of parochial bickering, the council's seven members have tended to agree on a broad vision for the future of the Baltimore area's largest local government. We hope this constructive approach continues.That's why The Sun supports the re-election of Steven G. Samuel Moxley, a Democrat who has represented the populous Arbutus, Catonsville and Westview areas since 1994, when he defeated Berchie Manley for the council seat.

WHY IS it that after eight years in office Baltimore County Sheriff Norman M. Pepersack Jr. keeps on doing stupid things?His battles after he first took office with then-County Executive Roger B. Hayden, a fellow Republican, resulted in the county jail being removed from the sheriff's responsibilities.Feuding got so bad that the current county executive, C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger III, made the sheriff sign a memorandum that limited his department's role in law enforcement. Interagency relations remain so strained that even though Baltimore County has its own police academy, Mr. Pepersack spends extra taxpayer money to train his recruits elsewhere.

SINCE HIS 1990 election, Sheriff Norman M. Pepersack Jr.'s imperious management style has created lots of controversy in Baltimore County. That's why it is difficult to understand why the sheriff, unopposed in the Republican primary, does not face a tougher Democratic challenge.One Democratic candidate, L. John McClernan, is a lawyer and former deputy sheriff. But he also was found guilty of failure to pay child support last year, offering mental health problems as his defense.Another candidate, Charles D. Cuddy, was a sheriff's department officer assigned to court security until he transferred to become an emergency communications technician.

PARTLY DUE to a good economy and partly due to the Ruppersberger administration's aptly placed priorities, Baltimore County has prospered the past four years.That makes life easier for county council incumbents up for reelection. The lack of public discontent is reflected in the dearth of candidates; four of the six incumbents seeking another term face no primary opposition.District 1, the southwestern area of the county, has no contested primary. Democratic incumbent Stephen G. Samuel Moxley will face John D. Manley, husband of former 1st District councilwoman Berchie Manley, in the Nov. 3 general election.

The lone candidate is Timothy J. Shearer of Shady Side.Republicans have two candidates vying for the nomination: incumbent John J. Klocko III, seeking a second term, and Patricia O'Brien Boarman, a perennial candidate from Deale.
