When Howard County's school board met in closed session to talk about extending school Superintendent John R. O'Rourke's contract last month , County Councilman-elect and lawyer Ken Ulman was among the meeting's harshest public critics. "I find this matter to be quite troubling and just think these actions clearly violated the intent of the law, which is to be an open process," Ulman told The Sun last month . But Ulman's comments resonated in an unexpected way because his firm, Hodes, Ulman, Pessin & Katz, is defending the school board in court against a citizen's open-meetings lawsuit.

When Michael and Lois Hodes began collecting five years ago, they had one main goal -- find something unique with character. Today, their 27-room house in Roland Park is stuffed to the brim with interesting and unusual furnishings and accessories. Walking through the rooms is like taking a tour of a mini-museum. In fact, Mrs. Hodes sometimes refers to herself as a curator.For starters, a seven-piece salon set of 18th century French furniture sits near the fireplace in the living room. The settee and six matching chairs are gilded and upholstered in the original tapestry.

The owners of WLG Legends Radio said yesterday that they will sell the company's stations, WWLG 1360 AM and WASA 1330 AM, to Mangione Enterprises, pending FCC approval.The stations' primary owner, Michael C. Hodes of Hodes, Ulman, Pessin & Katz, P.A., said he purchased WWLG in 1993 and WASA in 1996 as advertising vehicles because the firm focused on elder and estate law. The firm has since expanded its practices, and Hodes said it doesn't make sense to focus on one advertising outlet.The stations broadcast pop standards during the day and sports in the late afternoon.

People often love their pets as much as they do any family member. Sometimes even more. So, it's not unheard of for pet owners to want to make sure that when they die, their pets are provided for. For a long time, the law hasn't made this easy. Animals are considered property and can't inherit assets. And even if, say, a pet owner left money in a will to a relative to care for a dog, there's no guarantee the caretaker will spend the cash on Fido. But times are changing. Thirty-one states and the District of Columbia now recognize pet trusts, which allow an owner to name an animal as a beneficiary.

TAKOMA PARK - Larry Hodes had the do-it-yourself concept, the steel pipe and all the time an early retirement allows, yet something was missing. He went looking for it on a recent Saturday at the local tool lending library. Where else to spend such a sublime spring day but inside a trailer the size of a large Dumpster, fenced in chain link and barbed wire? The sun didn't shine on these many saws and hammers, nor on the workbench where Hodes spent hours pursuing visions of a dolly to wheel his canoe from place to place.

Lane Hodes doesn't mince words. "The 'looking for a husband' concept baffles me." Don't get her wrong. The 26-year-old University of Maryland law student likes men, and she'll probably get married one day. But Hodes, like many unmarried women these days, is enjoying not being in a serious relationship. She didn't wait for a boyfriend to give her jewelry. When her birthday came around, she bought herself a diamond bracelet. And last year, Hodes vacationed in Las Vegas by herself, gambling in the casinos alone.

Mr. Hodes said the station has not been profitable, but would begin making money after its administrative overhead was merged with that of WWLG and its parent Legends Broadcasting LLC. The Harford County station should also be helped after it adopts WWLG's big-band nostalgia format, he said.
