WASHINGTON - During Bernadine Healy's tumultuous final six months as president of the American Red Cross, the nonprofit agency awarded her $1.9 million. As a result, Healy's replacement, former Rear Adm. Marsha Evans, and the agency's board have launched separate reviews of the way the Red Cross compensates its senior employees. Healy wept in public frustration when she was forced out of the top American Red Cross job in the tense and confusing aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the fall of 2001.

Regarding job growth in Maryland, it seems to me that Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan is to keep his fingers crossed and hope that federal money keeps flowing into the state. The strategy has worked before because Maryland is home to federal agencies and installations that have kept the funding spigot open wide. It has also allowed Mr. O'Malley and other demagogues to engage in class warfare and rail against "the rich" and "big corporations" because the feds will always keep Maryland afloat, right?

A Florida business bought the Belair Edison Crossing shopping center for $12.3 million this week, a deal that suggests strength in the city's retail investor market, the broker for the transaction said Thursday. “It's a significantly sized deal in Baltimore City,” said Gil Neuman, managing director of Greysteel Co. “I think there's a new sort of … revival, so to speak, of Baltimore, which is being seen nationally as a desirable place to invest.” The 16-acre Belair Road property last sold in 2003 for $4.7 million, according to reports at the time.

Tens of thousands of kids have run races on Hereford High School's cross country course, one of the most well-known in the Mid-Atlantic region and one on which many are proud to say that they have competed there. Unfortunately, the course it being ruined by the renovations with little or no thought to preserving it. With big meets, like the Bull Run or the state championships, large starting areas are needed for the large fields of runners. Now on the hillside where the runners come through at the start, there is a large gradually sloping road with 10-12 feet of fill dirt blocking the way. This has been done to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act access requirements for the baseball field.

St. Agnes Hospital lit the state's largest illuminated cross Wednesday - a seven-story structure with 792 LED lights - as it prepares to open its expanded patient facility. The 5,440-pound aluminum cross is one of the most visible parts of the Southwest Baltimore hospital's seven-year, $220 million expansion project, which includes a 190,000-square-foot patient tower, where the cross is attached. The tower expected to open in May. "This cross is symbolic of where we have been and where we want to go," said Barbara Bozzuto, the hospital's board chairwoman, who led the countdown to the lighting of the cross at the fields of former Cardinal Gibbons School across the street.

Regarding that cross in Bladensburg, when talking about the separation of church and state has anyone actually read the First Amendment to the Constitution ( "Veterans' cross in Maryland at the center of national battle," May 25)? Why is the phrase "prohibiting the free exercise thereof" never mentioned? Doesn't the First Amendment say that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances?"

Maryland health officials confirmed Wednesday the first case of enterovirus D68, a somewhat rare type of respiratory infection that has been sweeping the country and largely sickening children with asthma and underlying health conditions. Doctors in Maryland had expected cases, though most were expected to be minor, or the equivalent of a cold that would not require medical attention. Serious cases can cause breathing problems for children. The state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said the specimen was collected from a hospitalized child and sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for testing.

It was the first day of camp, a busy day at the swimming pool of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills. Amid the happy splashing, lifeguard Jalina Ray spotted something that didn't look right. She got the attention of fellow lifeguard Andrew Minkin, and pointed to an 8-year-old thrashing underwater. "I originally thought it was just a kid messing around at the bottom of the pool," said Minkin, 18, a senior at the McDonogh School. "When he didn't surface after 10 seconds, I became really concerned.

When models strut down the outdoor catwalk at The Village of Cross Keys' annual One Great Fall fashion show on Sept. 20, the sartorial showcase will be about more than hemlines and high heels. Cross Keys, an upscale enclave of residences, boutiques and cafes in North Baltimore, will utilize the occasion to benefit the House of Ruth Maryland Inc., which provides services aimed at domestic violence victims. While the glamour and beauty of fashion may seem incompatible with the ugly and violent behavior of domestic abuse, organizers are billing the event as one that, ultimately, empowers women.

David Eisenhauer quickly made a name for himself during his first cross country season last fall after his family moved here from Washington state. As a junior at Wilde Lake, he found success in big races, capping his season with a second-place finish in the Class 3A state meet. Eisenhauer has continued that success this fall. He scored a 49-second victory at the Seahawk Invitational last week and posted another big win in Saturday's Howard County Invitational at Centennial. The senior won on a cloudy morning, finishing in 16 minutes, 37.44 seconds and easily beating out Paint Branch's Lorenzo Neil (17:06.64)

Morgan State's 0-2 start has been punctuated by similar three-point losses to Eastern Michigan and Holy Cross. Another similarity involves the defense's inability to preserve leads. The Bears had a 28-21 advantage with 5:30 left in the third quarter before Eastern Michigan scored the final 10 points. They held a 26-23 lead with 3:39 left in the fourth period until Holy Cross punched in the game-winning touchdown on the final play. But coach Lee Hull said the defense's play has not sounded any alarms yet. “It's a new system, and our guys are still learning,” Hull said Tuesday morning during his weekly conference call organized by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

1. Centennial Last season: Ranked No. 1 Postseason: Class 3A state champion Outlook: The Eagles return state champ Shreya Nalubola and much of their lineup from last year's powerful team. That's good news for Centennial and very bad news for just about everyone else. 2. Hereford Last season: Ranked No. 2 Postseason: Class 2A state champion Outlook: Much like Centennial, the Bulls bring back much of their championship team from a year ago, though they did lose a few more seniors than the Eagles and will need others to step up. 3. South River Last season: Ranked No. 3 Postseason: Third in Class 4A state meet Outlook: The Seahawks lost top runner Carly Bunting, and that will hurt.
