As the fall campaign season opens, Republican Anne Arundel County executive hopeful Steve Schuh has three times as much money as his Democratic rival, George Johnson, according to campaign finance reports filed this week. Schuh, a state delegate from Gibson Island, has $225,321 in cash available to spend, compared to $72,348 for Johnson, a former county sheriff from Pasadena. Schuh and Johnson are among the Maryland candidates who filed reports Tuesday detailing their fundraising and spending from June 9 through Aug. 19. Johnson has been building his campaign after getting into the county executive's race late, while Schuh has been rebuilding his finances after a hard-fought Republican primary against incumbent County Executive Laura Neuman.

Leslie Johnson walked into the Prince George's County Council chambers Tuesday morning, and began her usual routine — joining her colleagues in prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. Although most of the council didn't know it, she had just handed in a resignation letter. Minutes later, she left through a back door. It was Johnson's first appearance in public since she pleaded guilty last week to destroying evidence in a federal investigation of county government corruption. At the time, Johnson said she would stay on the council until her sentencing in October, prompting vociferous objections from fellow politicians and the public.

The Anne Arundel County state legislative delegation wants to be generous to Sheriff George Johnson -- but not that generous.The delegation is pushing a bill to get Johnson a two-step salary boost to $55,000 by 1999, and to ensure that his salary keeps up with inflation after that, the lawmakers decided he should get an automatic 2.8 percent pay increase every year thereafter.But Dan K. Morhaim, a Baltimore County delegate, pointed out to the county's House and Senate representatives yesterday that the wording of their bill for Johnson allowed for an endless cost-of-living increase.

I would like to point out - because Americans should savor this sort of fleeting thing on the anniversary of the nation's birth - that an accused crack dealer in a long, black T-shirt and an accused stock swindler in a fine, black suit sat in the same dock within minutes of each other yesterday afternoon in a federal courtroom in downtown Baltimore. Nathan Chapman's name appeared on the docket next to George Johnson's. The men, both from Howard County, did not appear to know each other.
