Morgan State University's Board of Regents violated the state open meetings law when it did not give proper notice of a hastily convened executive committee meeting, the Open Meetings Compliance Board found this week. The executive committee, which met on Friday, May 2, posted notice of its meeting to the college's website just one day before. The attorney for the regents said the meeting needed to be called quickly and that it took a few days to settle on a place and time. The Open Meetings Compliance Board, which issued its ruling on Thursday, found that was not reasonable advance notice.

EAST WINDSOR, N.J. - The dissenting homeowners at Twin Rivers, a vast 1970-vintage housing development of 10,000 residents on the exurban plains here, say their homeowner association autocratically denies them the rights that most citizens take for granted. The homeowner association says that if the dissidents dislike like living here, in central New Jersey, they should move. Now the handful of dissenters, backed by the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, are suing the homeowner association in a lawsuit that could change New Jersey law and prove influential in other states as well.

Two Columbia Council members supportive of Columbia Association President Deborah O. McCarty were overwhelmingly defeated in village elections yesterday, tipping the city's governing board toward her critics. In an election that generated unusual interest, one of McCarty's allies won only 14 percent of the vote; another had 26 percent. "I think the message from the community is that we'd like things to be done differently," Lanny Morrison said as he prepared to celebrate his victory over incumbent Tom Forno in the Harper's Choice race.

PRINCESS ANNE - Public relations executive David H. Nevins was elected chairman of the University System of Maryland's governing Board of Regents yesterday. Nevins replaces Clifford M. Kendall, who served three consecutive one-year terms as chairman. Nevins was appointed to the board by Gov. Parris N. Glendening in 1999 and was reappointed last year by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. The chairman has no official added duties other than running meetings but is widely considered the public face of the governing board and often serves as a behind-the-scenes facilitator for key policy decisions.

"In the name of my savior, I pray," is how one Carroll County commissioner concluded his prayer to open a recent meeting of the county's governing board. Now two county residents are asking a federal judge to end what they say is the board's regular practice of opening meetings with prayers that are "frequently Christian in nature. " In a lawsuit filed this week in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, Neil Ridgely of Finksburg and Bruce Hake of Union Bridge say invocations of "Jesus" and "the savior" by county commissioners during public meetings violate the constitutional separation of church and state.

The decision last week by Morgan State University's governing board to oust Dallas R. Evans as chairman appears to have been the culmination of a bitter struggle over the school's leadership between Mr. Evans and University President David Wilson. In December, Mr. Evans tried to orchestrate Mr. Wilson's dismissal after only 21/2 years on the job by persuading the school's 15-member Board of Regents not to renew the president's contract when it ends in June. But then an outpouring of support for Mr. Wilson from students, faculty members and community leaders forced the board to reverse its decision a few weeks later.

Contrary to what some critics may say, the Morgan State University Board of Regents takes seriously its obligations as a governing board with responsibility for the overall management of the institution ("Morgan regents often 'not here,' " July 13). Morgan State's board meets the state standard for attendance at regular board meetings, satisfies the requirements of our by-laws for a quorum and otherwise invests the time necessary to effectively accomplish the business of the university.

Sparked by failing test scores at eight academically troubled schools, the city school system is considering proposals to relinquish control of the schools to local universities and other outside partners who could devise strategies for turning them around. The school board is expected to vote on the proposals tonight. Under one proposal, four elementary/middle schools in Cherry Hill would be operated in partnership with Towson University. A governing board would be established to oversee those four schools plus Morrell Park Elementary/Middle, which is already run by Towson.

WASHINGTON - The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission appears headed for a showdown with Gov. Gray Davis, perhaps as early as today, over political control of the powerful nonprofit corporation that runs California's electricity transmission grid. Responding to an industry complaint that the grid operator lacks required independence, FERC could immediately disband its governing board, which was appointed by Davis. But several observers said yesterday that such a politically provocative step seems unlikely in the heat of summer.

To win the job of Columbia Association president, one of the three finalists will have to win over a majority of the Columbia Council. But he can't count on its backing for long. Seven of the council's 10 members are up for re-election in April. At least two of them - Cecilia Januszkiewicz of Long Reach and Adam Rich of River Hill - have decided not to run. The new council takes office in May. "It is a problem, since this person will be hired by a group of people, seven of whom can change in four months," Januszkiewicz said.
