The day after an emotional Anne Arundel County Council meeting ended without a selection to fill the open District 1 seat, council members said they remained firm in their positions but were hoping to end the stalemate before they reconvene Tuesday. The council met Thursday night to fill the position vacated by former Councilman Daryl D. Jones, who began serving a five-month federal prison term last month. The 41/2-hour meeting was marked by shouting, a racial slur, accusations of bullying and a 3-3 deadlocked vote over two candidates.

— First came the budget debate. Next, it was the debt ceiling. Then, the FAA shutdown. Now Maryland officials are keeping a wary eye on the latest congressional stalemate over federal spending, an impasse that has the potential to put dozens of highway projects and thousands of jobs in jeopardy. When they return to Washington after the August recess, lawmakers will have less than a month to broker a compromise to reauthorize the 18.4-cents-per-gallon federal tax on gasoline and approve using the money from that tax to pay for road and bridge projects.

In one of the closest finishes in the NOOD's 24-year history, Thomas Klok won a three-way tie Sunday to earn the overall title in the National Offshore One Design regatta on the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis. Klok, of Copenhagen, Denmark, had paced the J/80 boat class all weekend aboard Guldfaxe but finished in eighth place during Sunday's final race. That showing dropped him into a three-way tie with Kevin Hayes and Bruno Pasquinelli at 53 total points apiece. Klok won the tiebreaker with his first-place finishes during races 1 and 6 in the eight-race series.

A Republican proposal for another two-week extension of the federal budget, floated on Friday, at least delays the prospect of a government shutdown. But it does nothing to resolve the underlying stalemate between President Barack Obama and House Republicans over their effort to cut $61 billion from the current year's budget. What makes matters worse is that even if the Republicans succeed in enacting all those cuts, it won't come close to eliminating the budget deficit, which for fiscal 2011 is estimated at $1.5 trillion.

An 80-minute videotape viewed by jurors shortly before they adjourned for Thanksgiving provided the breakthrough that led to Mayor Sheila Dixon's conviction, one of the jurors said Tuesday. Before viewing the tape, which replayed testimony of developer Patrick Turner and other witnesses, three jurors refused to convict the mayor on any charges, according to a 23-year-old Highlandtown woman named Shawana, known during the trial as Juror No. 3. One of those jurors disputed others' recollections that Turner had said the gift cards he gave Dixon were intended for needy children.
