In his January 18th piece, "New Md. Rules on Stormwater Assailed," Tim Wheeler describes the content of a Smart Growth Task Force meeting at the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) where members of the development community came out to oppose new regulations aimed at tightening pollution control standards on re-development sites. Having been at the meeting, I wasn't surprised so much by the overwhelming sentiment from the development community; they don't want to have to pay the cost of making their projects pollute less.

A committee of the Rodgers Forge Community Association worked for about a year to come up with the recommendations, which the full board approved in September, according to immediate past president Stu Sirota. "I think this shows that Rodgers Forge is a progressive neighborhood that cares about its history and maintaining the architectural integrity of its homes, while still being able to allow a modern and innovative green technology," Sirota said.

Harassment, intimidation and sabotage are a major reason why women do not enter or remain in jobs in the construction industry, according to a provocative and hard hitting study on women in construction by the National Women's Law Center. Women are openly discouraged from participating in the industry, and there is a dearth of opportunities. Discrimination is the order of the day. Jobs and union memberships are passed around to male friends, brothers and in-laws (women construction workers refer to the network as the "FBI")

The government is also creating a website, NotAlone.gov, that it says will help victims file federal complaints and access data on federal investigations.

A comment on Facebook responding to one of my posts recommending revisions in the Associated Press Stylebook  raises a couple of issues worth examining:  Here's what bugs me: the idea that a style guide should, or is claiming to, apply universally. That's not the purpose of a style guide. Every book, magazine and company should have its own style guide - often based on AP or Chicago, sure, but tailored to that project's needs. To say the AP stylebook is "wrong" doesn't make sense.
