The planning is underway in Baltimore's $1 billion-plus, decade-long effort to bring public schools into the 21st century - in fact, there's a design expo at Morgan State University this weekend - which means we have entered a seminal period in the city's history. I'm sure that sounds grandiose. So let me concede a point to the jaded and the cynical who reject the possibility of The Next Big Thing ever coming to the Queen City of the Patapsco Drainage Basin. The city's long recovery from the loss of unionized manufacturing jobs and middle-class families, the epoch of drug addiction and violence, the years of declining schools and neighborhoods - all of that has left many of us (maybe most of us)

Maryland's Child Care Subsidy program, which gives poor families vouchers for care so parents can work or go to school, is so underfunded that it hasn't met federal rate guidelines in a decade and still uses income eligibility criteria from 2001. The deficit prevents thousands of families from participating and relegates many of those who do to the least expensive care available - often the lowest caliber in terms of facilities, educational offerings and staff training. Scientific studies show the early years are some of the most important in a person's development and that children need stimulating, interactive and comforting care to thrive and prepare for kindergarten.

Two state officials said yesterday that they will press for a review of the state law setting a buffer zone between hunters and occupied buildings after a stray slug from a deer hunter's shotgun shattered the front window of a Howard County day care center. The hunters were at a farm about 300 yards - nearly twice the required distance - behind Kids Time Out in Clarksville on Wednesday afternoon when they fired at least three times, police said. "That was just too close," said Del. Elizabeth Bobo, a Howard County Democrat and member of the House Environmental Matters Committee, which proposes laws for the Department of Natural Resources.
