The Howard County Education Association says it will not sign new contracts containing an increase in salaries until the school system completes negotiations to establish a mandatory union fee. But the teachers and support staff likely will get their raises July 1 as scheduled, even if their contracts are not signed by then. In a closed-door meeting Wednesday night, the Board of Education indicated it would grant the negotiated salary increases and health benefits by passing a resolution, according to schools spokeswoman Patti Caplan.

A half-hour after the clock ran out on the Maryland General Assembly's 90-day session, the governor and top executives of Constellation Energy Group Inc. were already sitting down past midnight to figure out a way to salvage a deal on electricity rates. It would take nearly two weeks, and a final 18-hour day of back and forth, before the two sides came to an agreement that would bring at least temporary relief to BGE's 1.1 million customers without crippling the state's largest utility and its corporate parent.

The Baltimore County school system is not waiting to move forward with a plan to improve Woodlawn Middle School. The school is still in the midst of state tests that will determine whether the State Department of Education will require all staff reapply for their jobs and commit to an extended school day and year and other changes. But county school system officials said they're putting the plan into motion because even if Woodlawn Middle's 760 children reach state performance goals this year, there's no guarantee future middle-schoolers will be able to meet ever-rising targets.

Should I throw away my toothbrush after I've had a cold? No. Nor should you waste your money on commercially available toothbrush "sanitizers" or special mouthwashes or disinfecting solutions. Thoroughly rinsing the toothbrush with tap water "does remove most of what's caught there," said Dr. Dana Graves, a professor of periodontology and oral biology at the Boston University School of Dental Medicine. And leaving the brush uncovered so it can dry between uses or using a toothpaste containing a disinfectant also helps reduce the amount of live bacteria and viruses on the brush.

Craig Burris likes to play basketball and lift weights a few days a week. Sometimes he'll work out at a gym near his home, the Bel Air Athletic Club, which he pays for out of his own pocket. But if he wants to, he can work out for free at the Merritt Athletic Club in Canton, just about a four-minute drive from his office at SmartCEO magazine in the Can Company. It's just one of the perks of his job. And it's not just because he's the publisher. Burris and all 18 of his colleagues are members of the Merritt Athletic Club.

After being sued by environmental activists, federal and state officials yesterday announced a new get-tough policy for sewage treatment plants that don't meet pollution limits meant to protect the Chesapeake Bay.

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.

It's like the superhero of library cards: flashy and vibrant in appearance, and able to leap over county borders in a single bound. Public librarians across Maryland are preparing to unleash the new MPOWER card, which gives the bearer the ability to borrow from any of Maryland's 174 public libraries. Yesterday, state officials chose the new library in Odenton - a fast-developing part of Anne Arundel County near the Howard County line - as the venue in which to unveil the eye-catching turquoise card, which presents different images as the holder tilts the card at various angles.
