Gov. William Donald Schaefer's place in Maryland history, despite his many accomplishments, will rest largely on his ability to enact the far-reaching tax reforms of the Linowes commission. Given the sweeping nature of these tax and spending changes, it will take a determined effort by the governor to win legislative support for these proposals during his final four years in office.Never has there been such a comprehensive look at Maryland's modern tax system. No one should expect the General Assembly to embrace the changes quickly.

Laura Mooney has made a fresh start in her second Canton home since 2003. Her idea was to simplify her life and downsize while remaining in the East Baltimore neighborhood she has lived in for the last 11 years. Her newly renovated Canton home, which she moved into four weeks ago, is a symbol of newfound liberation, she said. "This house is light, airy and clutter-free; that's my aesthetic," Mooney said. That aesthetic has a welcoming effect. A distressed wooden sign set in a wrought-iron stand at the foot of her winding staircase says it all: "Bonjour!"

 In many of the letters that have been published, the statement has been made that if you move close to Merriweather, you should not complain about the noise. Let me tell you the other side of the problem. Fifteen year ago, my lady and I thought we had found our perfect retirement home at Wyndham Condominiums. We perceived no problem with Merriweather; and at first, there was none. Sometimes you could not tell there was even a concert. Over the years, the volume of Merriweather has gotten louder so that even with the doors and windows closed, the noise is barely tolerable, but this is not the main problem.

In an article about natural gas drilling ("Md. environment chief wants more U.S. oversight of fracking," April 13), The Sun's John Fritze reports that to "extract natural gas through fracking, companies use millions of gallons of liquids," but that explanation is inadequate. Anyone interested in information about fracking for gas extraction should watch the HBO documentary, "Gasland," or drive up to Bradford County, Penn. and see the devastating results of this process. Toxic chemicals are pumped into the ground with water and sand to force the gas up. Sixty-five of the chemicals used are considered dangerous to human health.

I wonder if those who criticize BGE for the way it responded to the storm-related power outages, particularly politicians like Gov.Martin O'Malley, have ever done the job themselves ("PSC pressed over outages," July 11)? I've been there, done that, and until you have tried it yourself, how about cutting the linemen a little slack? Rolling up on a huge, downed maple tree with 2,400-volt wires tangled in the branches is not something you want to jump right into. Doing it in the middle of a rain storm doesn't make it any easier.

When Michael J. Francus applied to build a nursing home in Baltimore in 1988, banks were only too happy to finance a project whose patients were certain to bring government dollars. But by the time he got the necessary approvals from regulators two years later, the government had slashed reimbursement levels, and bankers shut their doors.He was left with the rights to build a 136-bed unit -- and the prospect of a "razor-thin" profit margin. "You don't go in the hole $5 million or $6 million to make $50,000," he decided.

The sale of 201 Beaumont Ave., a house on a quiet, tree-lined side street in Catonsville, is a good example in today's housing market that a little work goes a long way toward buyer and seller satisfaction. Marybeth Brohawn, an agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, relates the details of the transaction that brought new owners to the bungalow built in 1925. "There were two list cards for the house, the first one priced at $319,000 in April 2011," she said. "While very charming, the kitchen was small, and there was no air conditioning; over and over, people commented on that.
