Jim Roberts, director of safety, security and transportation at Bon Secours Health System, dresses for work not in a uniform, but in a crisp suit and tie. That way, the public knows it's dealing with a manager, says Roberts, 51, of Severn. Even in his old line of work, Roberts, a retired Army officer who also worked in the defense contract industry, says that has always been the practice: "Managers dress as managers. You represent yourself and the organization you work for." The security force employees Roberts oversees do wear uniforms, but "not the kind that can be mistaken for law enforcement," he says.

Ken Ulman is not a dictator and doesn't own Howard County's properties ("Howard bans sales of sugary drinks on county property," Dec. 12). The citizens of Howard County own the county's properties. The citizens should have the say on whether legal sugary drinks should be banned from the properties they own. Banning legal substances is a bad idea. Freedom should be true freedom, and legal substances should stay legal. Legislators and executives need to stop taking away our freedoms.

A contested proposal to rezone part of a 32-acre tract on U.S. 1 in Elkridge near the community of Harwood Park will be withdrawn, according to the sponsor, Howard County Councilman Christopher J. Merdon. The withdrawal was announced at last night's County Council public hearing. "I was trying to make things work and get the place cleaned up, but I can't do it without ... the property owner," Merdon said. "We can't force him out. We can't force change on him." The landowner, Jim Roberts, whose decades-old business is considered an eyesore by some, vowed yesterday to clean up and screen his land with either a fence or trees.

The paintings of Robert Jones and Jim Condron, who studied with renowned Baltimore artist Grace Hartigan at the Maryland Institute College of Art, both affirm and refute the old saw that the apple never falls far from the tree. Condron's finely drawn, large-scale abstract landscape compositions, with their warm, earth-tone hues and strategically placed, expressive drips, seem like easy continuations of Hartigan's own quasi-figurative, all-over style, albeit by slightly different means.
