The administrative law judge hearing the Howard County school board's case against fellow member Allen Dyer said Tuesday that Dyer's assertion that the board has not clearly spelled out its reasons for wanting him removed is "becoming increasingly more relevant. " At the end of the session, Dyer made a motion for Administrative Law Judge Douglas Koteen to dismiss the case. "No sitting board member should have to go through this," Dyer said. Koteen, who denied a previous motion of Dyer's to dismiss, said that the matter would be revisited June 6, when the hearing reconvenes.

In its order to revoke the license of Meadowridge Wine and Spirits in the 6500 block Huntshire Drive, which was released yesterday, the county's Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board found "a pattern of violations over several years that demonstrate a failure to fill the responsibilities required of a licensee." At the hearing Oct. 12, the board heard a statement of facts agreed to by both sides revealing that no one legally responsible for the store lives in Howard County, as required by law. Untrained clerks were also caught several times by county police officers selling alcohol to underage youths.

SUPPORTERS OF House Bill 1172, which would reduce Maryland's police chiefs' power to clean up allegations of police misconduct, contend their proposal is about fairness to officers. But they can't make a case about fairness to the public, whom the police officers serve.This is a union-written and sponsored bill, supported by the Fraternal Order of Police, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union and other labor groups. It would dismantle the current checks and balances in police discipline review.
