Baltimore, gold mine or fool's gold?First off, let's get one thing straight: Cities, not individuals or groups, are awarded expansion franchises in the National Football League. That's what the boys from Madison Avenue say anyway.So any claims that so-and-so and his consortium have the votes (backing of NFL team owners) to gain Baltimore a team are woefully premature as well as just plain false.Simultaneous with a city being accepted into the lodge, falling heir to the twin privileges of spending untold millions and losing many games, a just and proper ownership has been scouted and is knighted.

First it's the Maryland Court of Appeals decision allowing a referendum on tax caps in November -- and now comes the deafening silence. Baltimore County Executive Dennis Rasmussen, who is seeking a second term, has not publicly taken a position on what is indisputably one of the most important local issues of this election. And there's a chance that he won't.It can't be for lack of commitment. It was the Rasmussen administration, after all, that challenged the constitutionality of the referendum in court and pushed through a 4 percent cap of JTC its own as a fiscally feasible alternative.

SHELBY, Mont. -- Bedecked in the same type of straw hat, dark suspenders and black trousers his German ancestors wore, John Wurz seems an anachronism seated at his computer, tapping the keyboard to set the high-tech hog feeder at the sprawling Hillside ranch.Wurz oversees a multimillion-dollar enterprise for a colony of 120 or so Hutterites, who, like the Amish, maintain an austere communal lifestyle and agrarian traditions. Unlike the Amish, though, the Hutterites embrace modern conveniences.

Gooooooooooooooood morning, Baltimore!Four hours a morning, five mornings a week, their voices splash through shower radios, command beltway commutes and perk up offices around town with music and musings. At night, they ease our loneliness and coo us to sleep.Disc jockeys -- the aristocracy of the airwaves -- determine what, when and how we listen to music (not to mention the number of times we are subjected to Natalie Imbruglia's pop-whine about being "Torn").But like everyone else, DJs fiddle with their own radios in their off time.

Main Street residents in Union Bridge will probably continue daily treks to the post office to collect their mail.The Town Council introduced an bill last night that would prohibit mailboxes along the narrow, heavily traveled street. Without boxes, there can be no home delivery.The proposed law also would prohibit newspaper boxes or "any units not attached to the house," said Mayor Perry L. Jones Jr."With all the traffic and cars parking on one side of the street, it is just too tight to add mail boxes," Jones said.

When New Hampshire, a conservative, Republican-dominated state, takes the lead on a controversial issue, it's worth taking note. Last week, the state's lawmakers approved a resolution volunteering their state as a testing ground for RU-486, the French drug that has been termed an "abortion pill" because it prevents a fertilized egg from implanting in the womb. With RU-486, ending a pregnancy can be almost as simple as taking an aspirin. The pill is seen as a grave threat by abortion opponents, and they have convinced the French manufacturer of the drug that trying to market it in this country would result in JTC boycotts and other political troubles to the manufacturer)
