HANDICAPPERS TRACKING the Annapolis mayoral race for next year have a new horse to add: Former Mayor Dennis M. Callahan has decided to make another run for the office he captured in 1985, before losing to Alfred A. Hopkins in 1989 and in a 1993 rematch. Apparently, Mr. Callahan thinks the third time should be a charm.By announcing his intention to run, Mr. Callahan has probably killed talk of a proposed charter amendment to hold non-partisan elections for city office. If Mr. Callahan decides to campaign as a Democrat, he would have to assemble an organization and amass enough money to survive a hotly contested primary and general election.

Key elements include building smaller residential centers with better treatment programs, hiring more staff and decentralizing services so different regions can decide what approach works best for them. In detailing O'Malley's plans for reform, Del. Bobby A. Zirkin and former Baltimore Health Commissioner Dr. Peter N. Beilenson said such changes are long overdue.

Dennis Callahan, a former mayor of Annapolis and the current director of Anne Arundel County's recreation and parks department, announced his Democratic candidacy for county executive before about 100 supporters yesterday at Crofton Country Club. Callahan, 64, had planned to make his announcement in the spring but said he moved up the date based on the fundraising efforts of Sheriff George F. Johnson IV, a Democrat who has more than $318,000 on hand for his campaign for executive. Callahan said he hopes to garner $200,000 for the September primary.

With all the problems facing the city of Annapolis, its once and (he hopes) future king, Dennis Callahan, should have no trouble finding serious issues to talk about. Instead, he's making a big deal over a newspaper advertisement featuring the city manager and his baby.The ad is part of a new campaign for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Maryland, which has been troubled by reports of financial mismanagement. It shows City Administrator Michael Mallinoff and his wife holding their newborn son. The text explains that Mrs. Mallinoff had to be transported from one hospital to another when she gave birth, but there were no insurance complications.

He's ba-a-a-ck.Former Annapolis Mayor Dennis Callahan is running for his old job again, sporting a new political party (his third!) and a new image that's even kinder and gentler than the mellow mode he adopted for his unsuccessful 1990 bid for Anne Arundel County executive. The independent candidate says he's changed, learned a lesson from his embarrassing 1989 defeat at the hands of that unlikely conqueror, Al Hopkins.Can we believe him? It's too early to tell. Leopards don't change their spots that easily but, to his credit, Mr. Callahan sees clearly where he went wrong -- the petty personal quarrels, the refusal to listen to others.

Notes from the campaign trail and elsewhere . . .It's time for a debate on debates, now that the so-called Annapolis mayoral forums are history.What we call debates these days aren't.That doesn't mean they're worthless; far from it. All three major mayoral "debates" -- one held Oct. 13 by several Ward 1 residents' associations, another Oct. 21 in Eastport, and last Thursday's Jaycees event -- gave us a clear sense of what Al Hopkins, Dennis Callahan and Larry Vincent stand for and who )) they are. And they were fun to watch, too.Consider some of the things we've learned through these events over the last two weeks: That God is on Al Hopkins' side.

Working with friends in the folk music scene, Max Ochs co-founded a summer concert series at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis eight years ago. He has played host ever since, volunteering his Saturdays to introduce bands, strum a guitar and read poetry during intermission to an audience of hundreds. But after Ochs made what Anne Arundel County officials say were intemperate remarks about President Bush at a concert July 12, the county told the 62-year-old former civil rights activist his services were no longer needed.
