Republican Darrel Drown, who had the best showing of any County Council candidate four years ago, announced his re-election bid Sunday in Elkridge -- an area he has yet to represent.The Democratic-controlled council altered Mr. Drown's district more radically than any other when redrawing the lines for the 1994 election. Mr. Drown's district, which now includes Elkridge, is about 40 percent new to him. It has a voter ratio of 1.24 Democrats to every Republican.If that worries him, he doesn't show it."

Last week, Gannett Co. Inc., owner of The Daily Times in Salisbury, filed a lawsuit in Worcester County Circuit Court to force Ocean City to release the name of a 17-year-old drowning victim from Parkville. A number of the newspaper's readers have already expressed outrage at the litigation, with one letter writer describing it as "wrong, just plain wrong" and others questioning what possible public interest is served by knowing the name, particularly given that the victim's family has specifically asked that it not be released.

Incumbency, once a venerable condition for a politician, may be a plague this time around. That could have unfortunate consequences for Republican Darrel E. Drown, who is running for a second term representing the First District on the Howard County Council.Mr. Drown's northeastern county district, which includes Ellicott City and Elkridge, has been well served by his tenure. It would be a shame if residents failed to return him to the council as a result of misplaced anger.During Mr. Drown's first term, an agreement was finally hashed out over the much-delayed Route 100 extension.

Ecker twice vetoed the smoking ban, in part because it contained exemptions.

It might cost Darrel E. Drown a hefty chunk of change to take his seat on the Howard County Council next month.Mr. Drown must give up his $67,000-a-year job as budget officer for the Howard County schools because the County Charter prohibits council members from holding a job with any agency that receives money from the county. The 39-year-old Republican will make $27,500 as a councilman after he is sworn in Dec. 3 -- a $39,500 pay cut.But Mr. Drown, who defeated Democratic incumbent Angela Beltram to represent Ellicott City on the council, is taking his job loss in stride.

Anne Arundel County parents don't want their children to drown -- either physically in the water or academically in crowded classrooms -- because the school system has a tight budget.That sums up the testimony of some of those who attended last night's hearing on Superintendent Carol S. Parham's proposed $437 million operating budget -- a spending plan that would eliminate a $100,000 drown-proofing program for all fifth-graders."Our schools routinely teach children personal hygiene, fire safety, sex ed and drug awareness -- all topics that should be taught at home," said Abby Seeger, one of about 200 people at the hearing and one of about 10 who asked that the drown-proofing program be restored to the budget.

A divisive era in Howard County Republican politics began yesterday as Councilman Darrel E. Drown counted himself out of the county executive's race in 1998 and three other top party officials counted themselves as possibly in.As about 100 Republican officials and activists looked on, Drown said he wanted to be county executive but the demands of raising three sons, ages 9, 11 and 13, made the timing bad."My wife and I have decided that full-time politics, i.e. the county executive's job, is not the right job for us at this time," Drown told the crowd gathered at Mount Ida, a historic house in downtown Ellicott City.

It afflicts children who survive a near-drowning incident. And though it's uncommon, it can be fatal if left untreated, according to Dr. Melissa Sparrow, clinical director for pediatric inpatient and emergency services at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. What is secondary, or dry, drowning? Secondary drowning is a term that is used by the public, and less so by physicians.

DARREL DROWN, chairman of the Howard County Council, blundered mightily when he made a derisive remark about county employees and labor unions.Or did he?In accusing county workers of having a "union mentality," Mr. Drown left himself open to sharp criticism from public employees (not to mention card-carrying union members of all stripes.)The Ellicott City Republican's subsequent apology and squirming over the remark was undoubtedly delicious to Democratic Councilman C. Vernon Gray of Columbia.

THE SWAP OF chairmanships between Howard County Council members Darrel E. Drown and Charles C. Feaga should produce a livelier year in local politics than the one about to wrap up. Both men, it appears, will find their new responsibilities more suited to their interests. In that sense, the change should pay off for county residents.The past year on the Howard council has been marked primarily by inactivity. Mr. Feaga, long a minority voice on the body, became chairman by virtue of his party's big win in last year's election.
