The House voted Friday to expand Baltimore City's needle exchange program, but not before members debated whether giving addicts access to more clean syringes could aggravate growing heroin use in the state. The measure, which passed 84-51, would lift the "one-for-one" restriction on swapping clean for used needles under the exchange program run the past 20 years by the city's Health Department. About 2,500 people have obtained 500,000 new syringes that way, reducing the risks of transmitting HIV and other blood-borne infections through the sharing of needles.

When Mario Buckley returned to Brazil on July 7, the Hilton household in Ellicott City briefly lost its international presence. This presence has become the norm for the Hiltons, who have been hosts to American Field Service exchange students each year since 1995. "Our youngest three kids have always had an exchange student in the house," said Mary Hilton, who serves as hosting coordinator for the AFS Greater Baltimore Chapter. Things will return to normal for the Hiltons in the fall with the arrival of Alejandro Seghezzi from Argentina.

Japanese cultural exchange student Minami Tajima remembers one of her first visits to an American restaurant. She and about two dozen other students from Japan visited Anne Arundel County last year, and after she befriended Arundel High School student Taylor Niemetz, the two went to a steakhouse in the Waugh Chapel area. "So this is a Japanese restaurant," Niemetz said. "They're Chinese,'" Tajima replied, referring to the cooks. Talk about cultural awareness. Still, Tajima, a student from Sagami Ono High School in a city near Tokyo, said she enjoys American food.

A Glen Burnie High School teacher will spend six weeks in Morocco this fall, learning how students who speak French and Arabic soak up the nuances of yet another language -- English. Erin Sullivan, 32, was awarded an all-expenses-paid trip last month as part of the Fulbright Teacher and Administrator Exchange program operated by the U.S. State Department. She said she applied because she wanted to learn where her students in the school's rapidly expanding English for Speakers of Other Languages program get their drive and discipline.

Military takes funds that could save crabs Concerning the loss of funding for the research project on increasing the crab population in the bay, I think it is helpful to put the amount of money spent on the project in 2007 - about $4 million - in perspective ("Md. crab project loses U.S. funding," Jan. 7). Including appropriations for the wars abroad, total defense spending for 2008 is likely to be about $2 billion a day. The $4 million spent on research on increasing crab populations in the largest estuary of the United States amounts to about three minutes' worth of defense spending.
