Republicans in the House of Delegates are scrambling to rebuild their leadership after Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. announced yesterday that the House minority whip will become the next chairman of the Public Service Commission. Del. Kenneth D. Schisler's appointment as chairman occurs one day after Ehrlich nominated House Minority Leader Alfred W. Redmer Jr. to be Maryland's new insurance commissioner. The loss of the top two House GOP leaders has touched off an intraparty squabble over who will lead 43 Republican delegates.

Ending a contentious leadership struggle, Republicans in the Maryland House of Delegates elected by a two-vote margin Del. George C. Edwards as the next minority leader, bypassing a rival whose running mate supports abortion rights. Edwards, of Garrett County, and his choice for minority whip, Del. Anthony J. O'Donnell of Southern Maryland, narrowly defeated a ticket headed by Del. A. Wade Kach of Baltimore County. The campaign to lead 43 House Republicans was marked by accusations of mudslinging, including accusations that Kach's running mate, Del. Adelaide C. Eckardt, was unfit to become the minority whip because she supports abortion rights.

Republican Del. Wade Kach has formally announced he will challenge Baltimore County Council Todd Huff next year. “When I look at the Third District, I see a need for an experienced, tested legislator to deal with the challenges we face,” Kach, who was first elected in 1974, said this week in a statement. “I believe that by moving from the House of Delegates to the County Council, I can bring the kind of responsive public service that the citizens want and need.” Huff, a Lutherville Republican, was elected to the council in 2010.

Someone who steals property worth more than $300 in Maryland can go to jail for up to 15 years.But a custom home builder who walks off a job with $20,000 or more of a customer's money -- leaving an unfinished house full of defects and subject to liens from unpaid subcontractors -- risks no more of a criminal penalty than a $1,000 fine and/or a year in jail.Anyone with doubts need only ask Yolanda Bruno of Columbia, Alice Frascoia of Calvert County and Alan Downes of Berlin in Wicomico County.

Four years ago, Democrat Stephen C. Kirsch faced off against incumbent Dels. A. Wade Kach and Martha S. Klima, both Republicans, for the two House of Delegates seats in District 9A and finished third by more than 7,000 votes. Since then, the northern Baltimore County district has been redrawn, renamed 5B and refashioned into a single-seat district. But Kirsch has returned to try to unseat Kach, and this time, he said, his chances of winning are better than ever. "I started campaigning in May 1998 and I haven't stopped at all," said Kirsch, a Baltimore lawyer who lives in Phoenix.

Del. Wade Kach, a Baltimore County Republican, told The Sun this morning that he will switch his vote and throw his support behind Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill to legalize same-sex marriage. Kach said the change in heart came after considerable deliberation. He plans to put out a statement at 10:15 a.m. The move puts O'Malley closer to the 71 votes he needs for passage in the 141-member chamber, but it is still unclear that supporters have the numbers they need. Lawmakers will begin debating the marriage bill this morning.

IT WAS the second semester of freshman year at Salve Regina University in Newport, R.I., and John Kach, then 18, and a member of the basketball team, was in great shape. Until one night, when he developed a fever of 104 to 105 Fahrenheit and flu-like symptoms. His girlfriend wanted to take him to the hospital, but he said no. After all, Kach was a guy and, as he puts it, "a guy's not going to go to the hospital for a high fever." But by 5 a.m., he was fading in and out of consciousness.
