Advocates of a limited bachelor's degree program at Harford Community College took their argument to Annapolis, where they encountered a buzz saw of opposition from four-year education institutions seeking to defend their turf. "This is clearly about turf. It's about encroachment," Claudia E. Chiesi, president of Harford Community College, told members of the House Ways and Means Committee at a hearing Wednesday about a bill that would allow the school to offer three bachelor's degree programs.

As the chandeliers began to swing and the ceiling panels shifted to and fro, the interviewers seated around the hotel conference table seemed uncertain how to react. Was Baltimore really experiencing an earthquake? In the middle of a meeting vital to the future of Towson University? Maravene Loeschke probably had the most reason to be nervous. After all, she was the one interviewing for the presidency of her alma mater. But in her many years as an actor and director, Loeschke had seen performers nearly flattened by falling curtains and productions marred by rain pouring through the ceiling.

HARFORD Community College wants to become the first community college in Maryland to offer four-year degree programs. If they can only get a foot in the door, officials promise, they won't aspire to be Harford University, with a panoply of bachelor's degree programs. But if Harford gets what it wants, the state's 15 other community colleges surely will seek similar authority, and eventually these schools will want the door wide open. It's that middle name - community - that distinguishes the state's two-year colleges from their four-year brethren.

The United States is in a debt crisis across the board. The leadership in Washington refuses to do what we elected them to do which is make the hard and intelligent decisions for the population. That requires actually leading from the front and not behind. Instead, the politicians take polls and point fingers. The housing industry that has driven the economy for 50 years is still mired in foreclosed homes and homeowners who are underwater with no way out. Student debt keeps rising due to ever higher college and university costs.
