So far this season, Ocean City has seen brawls on the boardwalk, robberies and even a few stabbings. Town councilman Brent Ashley has had enough. The vocal advocate for Maryland's resort city says what's urgently needed is a return to decency. For a start, he said, people can pull up their pants or perhaps put on a shirt and shoes in the evening. Ashley is proposing a decency law for Ocean City that could be modeled on a recent law passed in Wildwood, N.J. That law calls for a $25 fine for wearing saggy pants - those that fall 3 inches or more from the waistline - on the boardwalk.

On sunny Saturday in mid-May, Caitlin Moran kicked off summer early, with friends, cocktails, and a busy grill. Moran, an Annapolis-based stylist and editorial director of the lifestyle website The Glitter Guide, is an expert party hostess - so even her backyard barbecues are handled with extra care and extra flair. At her party in May, she served sparkling sangria and instead of standard-issue burgers on the grill, she created a make-your-own gourmet pizza bar, with a variety of cheeses, meats, and fresh vegetables available as toppings.

Here we are, on the cusp of another NBA season, and what are we talking about? A repeat for the San Antonio Spurs? A new cast in Miami? Larry Brown in New York? No, we're talking dress code. Sport coats. Ixnay on the ing- blay. For one of ESPN's commentators, putting suits on the players is fine, but he wishes this had been decided a while ago. "I would like to have seen this discussed right after the season," studio analyst Greg Anthony said during a conference call yesterday. There should be a buzz about the teams and players right now, he said, and "we don't have that yet."

When a representative from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School visited Danielle Cook's class, the eighth-grader thought she fit the criteria for the rigorous college preparatory high school in Baltimore. She has been a straight-A student since preschool, is at the top of her class at Afya Public Charter School and participates in a half-dozen extracurricular activities. Then the representative described the school's dress code and its hairstyle restrictions, and Danielle realized something other than academics could keep her from attending: the 75 dreadlocks framing her face.

Often, the only relief is outdoors."I took a pocket thermostat to work with me Sunday," said Mr. Wilmouth, 24, of Sykesville.

Nothing in particular pushed Andrea Keefer over the edge. Rather, it was the daily parade of cleavage and bare midriffs, barely there miniskirts and micro-shorts that convinced the former Francis Scott Key High School Student Government Association president and other student leaders in the county that Carroll County's public schools needed a stricter dress code. "Once it gets really hot, people wear everything other than their bathing suits to school," said Keefer, 17, who graduated this month from Key and will start classes this fall at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Va. "When you see people wearing things like that to school, you know they're not there to get an education.

LONDON - A Muslim orphan who won a two-year legal battle over a school dress code that prevented her from wearing a head-to-toe garment says she has struck a blow against "prejudice and bigotry." In an interview yesterday in the Guardian newspaper a day after her court victory, 16-year-old Shabina Begum said she hoped her case had given "hope and strength to other Muslim women. ... I'm happy that I did this." But some critics fear that permitting more conservative Islamic dress in British schools could put pressure on other Muslim girls to wear the same clothing or risk being branded as not devout.

I agree wholeheartedly with Susan Reimer ("Failing Bobby," Aug. 30) that the situation with the alleged Perry Hall shooter Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. is so sad. Being a nurse and employed in psychiatric care for a number of years, I know we missed the boat on this one. Bobby was trying to let someone know by his actions that he was in trouble. All the bells and whistles were there. I certainly hope now that he can get the proper treatment. My prayers are with both families. It would also help if there some type of policy for uniforms or a standard dress code.

Writing about me for a profile in the Christian Science Monitor , Richard O'Mara quoted an unnamed colleague, "He dresses like a floorwalker. " Indeed, Tuesday through Friday, I'm at the paragraph factory in suit and tie. Only on Saturday, when a skeleton staff toils in the the echoing newsroom, do I go casual. The formality is a personal preference, from a lingering sense that a grown-up man ought to dress like a grownup.  There is no dress code for the newsroom; my fellow managers on the news desk, Steve Young and Phil Klinedinst, are determinedly casual.

NFL players love giving Bruce Laird a hard time. They call him a snitch. They call him Inspector Clouseau. They call him Colonel Klink. And those are just the printable names. That's because Laird, the former Baltimore Colts defensive back, is the uniform inspector at every Ravens home game, charged with making sure players from both teams conform to the league's strict – some would say anal-retentive -- dress code.. No socks rolled down.. No skin showing between the socks and pants.

The ripped jeans in the classroom. The cropped tops. The tight T-shirts.Frankly, they're fed up with all the sloppiness -- among some of their teachers.Saying they want a more professional look in the schools, five neat and proper teen-agers made a pilgrimage to Annapolis yesterday to urge dress standards for teachers.The high schoolers supported a bill before the House Ways and Means Committee that would set dress codes for teachers similar to those for students in some counties."We had a teacher who would wear outfits that were very low-cut," said Michelle McGrath, 16, a junior at Broadneck High School in Anne Arundel County.

It is not very professional if you wear jeans if the kids can't. Dressing professionally, the kids take you more seriously.
