Thousands of miles on the road this summer and fall have afforded me the opportunity to observe a variety of political ads from across the spectrum. Herewith, observations from the heartland: I assume the relentless Democratic campaign to demonize the conservative Koch Brothers and their "Americans for Prosperity" organization has been poll tested, but I still don't get it. Driving negatives against someone (or something) that few people recognize violates a core tenet of political advertising.

The U.S. Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay has been awarded a $30 million-a-year project to repair and modernize 27 of the service's aging medium-endurance cutters. Maryland lawmakers, who jointly announced the work with the Coast Guard, said the increased work should secure the yard's jobs for years and further cement Curtis Bay's role in national service. About 690 people, mostly civilians, work at the yard, which was established more than 100 years ago to maintain and repair the service's cutters.

The Coast Guard's newest and largest vessel pulled into the Fells Point pier yesterday, part of a national tour that federal homeland security officials say marks a watershed in the service's ability to patrol the nation's waters. The Bertholf, the first of the Coast Guard's national security cutters, is longer than a football field and stands nearly five stories tall. The biggest ship ever in the Coast Guard, it's built to do it all: search and rescue, drug busts, immigration patrol and battle.

WASHINGTON - By allegedly planting box cutters and other prohibited items in aircraft lavatories, college student Nathaniel T. Heatwole said he was testing the effectiveness of the nation's aviation safety regime after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. But his case may also become a test of the fairness of tough new charging and sentencing procedures backed by Congress and Attorney General John Ashcroft. The attorney general has been pushing initiatives to limit the discretion of prosecutors and judges in seeking and imposing sentences.

DAMASCUS - The 20-year- old Montgomery County man linked to the discovery of box cutters on at least two planes is a brainy ham-radio operator who told his college newspaper last year that he wanted to show the federal government that he was a "voice of dissent." Nathaniel T. Heatwole, now a junior at Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C., told the newspaper that he sent the Selective Service System a strongly worded letter of protest after it mailed him a form letter on his 18th birthday asking him to sign up for military service in the event of a draft.

I will leave it to the political reporters and analysts at The Sun to judge how Maryland Congressman Andy Harris did on CNN's "Crossfire" Monday night. For my money, he did just fine in his debate on Obamacare, showing what an act-like-you-know bluster mouth of misinformation and phony facts former Obama adviser and show host Stephanie Cutter is. Ostensibly, Harris was supposed to be debating Anne Filipic, a former Obama White House staffer who is now president of Enroll America, an organization signing people up for Obamacare.

The project manager at the former Patterson Park High School in Highlandtown stood atop a roof terrace and said, "This is not a cookie-cutter property. " That's an understatement. Shaffin Jetha and Chuck Nale, officials of Focus Development, gave me a tour of the Southeast Baltimore landmark it has taken me 50 years to visit. I wasn't procrastinating; I just never got an invitation to view this under-recognized Art Deco-style school that once accommodated 3,200 students. It is now being made into 138 apartments.

The fleet of Coast Guard vessels that call Baltimore home port increased by one Wednesday when the 65-foot cutter Chock arrived from Virginia. The harbor tugboat, built in 1961, was transferred from Portsmouth. The Chock and its crew of eight will be used for homeland security patrols, law enforcement and ice-breaking in the upper bay. It also will continue to be used in the lower bay. Capt. Mark O'Malley, the Coast Guard's captain of the port of Baltimore, called it "a privilege" to add the cutter to the Curtis Bay operation, noting its "long history of superior service to the mariners of the Chesapeake Bay. " Baltimore's Coast Guard station responds to more than 200 search-and-rescue incidents and conducts more than 370 law enforcement boardings annually.

On Oct. 20, 1978, the collier M/V Santa Cruz II, loaded with 19,500 tons of coal, was steaming southbound on the Chesapeake Bay when it collided with a northbound Coast Guard cutter, the Cuyahoga. The collision happened 3.5 miles from Smith Point, at the mouth of the Potomac River, near the Maryland-Virginia border.
