When Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman unveiled her proposed $1.35 billion county budget on Thursday, she described it as a package that reduced the county's property tax rate "without cutting essential services or depleting our savings. " But in a political year that has already seen sharp barbs between Neuman and her opponent for the Republican nomination for county executive, Del. Steve Schuh, the tax rate issue immediately drew a rebuke from Schuh, who called the cut "inadequate and misleading.

The county has found a way to give Annapolis Alderman John Hammond, R-Ward 1, a little time to decide which he should give up: his city post or the county's offer of a $76,871 job as its financial officer.That's fine -- as long as a little time doesn't turn into forever.Mr. Hammond had accepted the job when he was told the state constitution prohibits him from holding two public offices at the same time. Though not an elected position, financial officer is a high-ranking, cabinet-level job, thus qualifying as a public office.

Anne Arundel County officials say they will appeal an arbitrator's decision that the county must give deputy sheriffs pay raises from 2009 that were negotiated in their contract - but which the county cut, saying it needed help to solve a budget crunch. "We feel that the arbitrator did not get it right," said John Hammond, acting county executive, who added that the county will file for judicial review in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. Last month, arbitrator Andrew M. Strongin found in favor of the deputies, saying the administration punished the union in a 2009 dispute when it held back the raises.

Flash back to late 1997 and a Jon Miller book signing at the Babe Ruth Museum. The Orioles season ended with a heartbreaking playoff loss to the Cleveland Indians and manager Davey Johnson was rewarded with walking papers. Mr. Miller had — for all intents and purposes — just been fired. I told him that firing proved to me the team and its owner were willing to settle for mediocrity. Boy was I wrong. Mediocrity was too kind a word. Welcome to the new Oriole Way! John Hammond, Baltimore

As the United States coped with the fallout of its first-ever credit downgrade, officials in Maryland were taking a wait-and-see approach Monday on the possible trickle-down effects on local governments' finances. Standard & Poor's has not cut the credit ratings for Maryland or any of its cities or counties in the wake of its decision last week to downgrade U.S. debt from AAA to AA+. But Maryland is on a short list of states that credit analysts believe could be affected by the federal downgrade, because its economy benefits disproportionately from federal agencies, contracts and employees.

Anne Arundel County Board of Education President Patricia Nalley says she is "happy" with Superintendent Kevin Maxwell's $969 million operating budget recommendation, which calls for a $37.5 million increase over last year. After hearing Maxwell outline the budget at Wednesday night's board meeting, Nalley said that she was confident that the board and county executives will work together on funding the budget to keep the school system on its "journey from good to great. " Yet Nalley's optimism comes as county budget officer John Hammond, who on Thursday afternoon said he has seen "a rough outline" of the proposal, repeated earlier comments that the county will give the school system no more than a $5.6 million maintenance-of-effort increase over last year.

Take heart: Cooler air is expected today. Relief from the searing heat that has blanketed Maryland and much of the nation for the past few days is due to arrive by way of a Great Lakes air mass and a change in wind direction, said meteorologist Jeff Warner of the Penn State Weather Communications Group. The cooler air, and shifting of winds so they blow out of the east, will drop temperatures into the upper 80s and low 90s today, which is about normal for this time of year, he said. Winds from the east usually mean cooler air this time of year, he said.

They met in 1975, when Schaffhauser, who had recently graduated from the Johns Hopkins University with a degree in administration and supervision, applied for a job at Lindale Middle School.
