ELLEN R. Sauerbrey will be elected governor Nov. 3 because she is the best candidate, has run the best campaign and will make the best governor.She is a person of fundamental decency and integrity. Everyone who has worked with her, including politicians from both parties, acknowledges that when Ms. Sauerbrey gives you her word, you can take it to the bank. She does not switch gears every time the political winds change.By contrast, Parris N. Glendening is known as a person whose word cannot be trusted.

When it comes to higher gas taxes, most Maryland businesses agree on one thing: They want a guarantee that the money designated for highway revenues will go to roads and bridges. But when the rubber met the road in the Maryland House of Delegates, some major business organizations gave away the key to the lockbox. The Maryland business community has been deeply divided on a gas tax increase. Paving contractors, concrete and asphalt companies, engineering firms and other businesses that depend on highway construction have been starving for lack of state transportation funds.

As you read the initial outcome of the first political trial regarding robocalls, you may have thought you were in one of those totalitarian countries that calls itself the "Democratic Republic" of something or other. Or you may have thought you were in the Middle East. According to The Baltimore Sun's description, Paul Schurick, a former top aide to then-governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., was found, by a Baltimore City jury, "guilty of fraud and related charges ... for his role in an Election Day 2010 robocall - a decision hailed by government watchdog groups ... " I cannot imagine anything more impressive than the opinions of "government watchdog groups.

TRY AS she might, Ellen R. Sauerbrey is having no end of headaches getting the small-but-growing Republican Party in order for November. Blame it on Howard County.First, Howard County Executive Charles I. Ecker shuns overtures to join her ticket -- first as running mate, then as a comptroller candidate -- choosing instead to keep up a campaign for governor that even longtime supporters consider quixotic.Now, Paul H. Rappaport -- the former Howard police chief who Sauerbrey put on the political map as her 1994 running mate -- is shunning her efforts to put together a full ticket for the September primary election, when Rappaport is running for Maryland attorney general.

I am writing in response to your Dec. 1 lead editorial, "Ecker v. Sauerbrey?"The gist of the editorial was a prediction that Maryland's Republicans would choose Charles Ecker over Ellen Sauerbrey. Your prediction is not surprising since you have a long history of underestimating Mrs. Sauerbrey's support.In fact, the editorial would have been downright unremarkable except for the following statement. You declared, "Where a Chuck Ecker or a Bobby Neall differs from an Ellen Sauerbrey is in the realization government isn't an evil that must be chopped down, but a well-intended institution in need of taming not maiming."

It is totally ridiculous to compare the recent conviction of Paul Schurick for vote suppression with the aftermath of the 1994 Maryland gubernatorial election. The letter writer claims as fact that Democrats cast votes from dead people, prisoners and out of staters ("Democrats aren't so clean," Dec. 8). The Ellen Sauerbrey campaign had its day in court on the issue of voter fraud and proved none of this. The only thing Ms. Sauerbrey's hired gun experts proved was that an astounding number of people in Baltimore City voted for the Democrat, Parris Glendening.

Come on Dan Rodricks , I'm sure you get a great deal of pleasure out of the opportunity to once again bash the Maryland GOP, but it isn't like the Democrats are squeaky clean politicos ("Drawing the line in cutthroat business of politics," Dec. 7). Let's not forget that Julius Henson is a Democrat. How do we know it wasn't a plot to make the GOP look bad? Did you forget the 1994 election for governor between Ellen Sauerbrey and Parris Glendening? Voter fraud charges lawsuit?

If current trends continue, Baltimore-born Nancy Pelosi will soon become the first female former speaker of the House. Congressman Steny Hoyer of Maryland would be demoted to minority leader, or worse. And Republicans might even seize control of the U.S. Senate, along with the U.S. House of Representatives. Change is coming to Washington. For the third national election in a row, voters are ready to punish those in charge for the way things have been going in the country. That much is clear.

Cutting budget won't cure woes of prison system I work in a correctional setting and I certainly agree with the authors of "Prison spending needs lockdown" (Dec. 1) that to reduce recidivism changes need to be made to make laws more fair and, ultimately, to have fewer people in prison and more in treatment-oriented facilities. Who would not agree with that? Unfortunately, Timothy Roche and Vincent Schiraldi go about their crusade in the wrong way. They seek to cut a budget that is already overwhelmed.

HAGERSTOWN - Except when they squeeze off a shot at game, Maryland hunters tend to be a pretty quiet bunch. They don't rally or boycott. They rarely engage in letters-to-the-editor campaigns or hand out literature at polling places. That could change next Sunday at the North American Rod and Gun Club. Hunters from the western and eastern ends of the state are converging here to decide how to take on Gov. Parris N. Glendening over his anti-hunting stance. The most controversial proposal would have Maryland hunters taking their business to neighboring states.

BRAND-NEW years arrive bearing brand-new anxieties. Just when we had the old year wrapped around us like a security blanket, the chilly new year shows up. It's all uncharted territory out there in the vastness of 2001, and the landscape is filled with pitfalls and potholes. Fortunately, though, help and inspiration have arrived with ... Some reasons to go on living: 1. The city of Baltimore didn't set a new homicide record last year. Drug dealers are either getting more civilized, or their aim is getting worse.
