In Maryland's newly redrawn 12th legislative district - which slithers from southwestern Baltimore County to West Columbia in Howard County - the race for the State House is pretty neatly divided along county lines. All four Republicans in the race live and work in the smaller Baltimore County portion of the district, while every Democratic candidate works in the larger Howard County side, and three live there. The district's geography has the underdog GOP candidates decrying what they perceive as gerrymandering to diminish their county's voice.

Kasemeyer has been a resident of District 12 long enough to legally run for the office.Responding to a complaint filed Oct. 20 by the Maryland Republican Party, a state prosecutor's investigation last week concluded that Mr. Kasemeyer had moved to a Columbia condominium he owns in early March, about eight months before the Nov. 8 general election and in time to meet the six-month requirement for residency under state election law.David P. Maier, Mr. Kasemeyer's Republican opponent, asked the state Republican Party to look into whether Mr. Kasemeyer met residency requirements for the district, which includes west Columbia, southern Ellicott City, Elkridge and southwestern Baltimore County.

The 12th state Senate District straddles two worlds.To the west is meticulously planned, predominantly liberal Columbia, with its cul-de-sacs, swimming pools and community centers. But the eastern part of the district includes such older, more conservative working-class communities as Lansdowne and Arbutus -- the core of incumbent Sen. Nancy L. Murphy's support.Now, Edward J. Kasemeyer, a Columbia Democrat and former Howard County state senator, is trying to unseat Ms. Murphy, 64, a Catonsville Realtor and 12-year Democratic lawmaker, by rallying the diverse new district around one issue: gun control.

With a possible gas tax increase looming in the fall special session of the Maryland General Assembly, the battle between Howard County's Democrats and Republicans over state spending erupted anew at a Chamber of Commerce breakfast forum. The event Wednesday at the Doubletree Hotel in Columbia, billed as a look back at the recent General Assembly session, turned instead into a battle of competing visions. The special session is supposed to deal mainly with redrawing congressional district boundaries based on last year's census, but legislators also expect to decide on some way to raise more money for transportation projects after years of draining the fund to plug holes in the budget.

Local governments may escape having to pay a share of burgeoning teacher pension costs next fiscal year, but not for long, according to all but one member of a panel of state legislators who spoke to the Howard County League of Women Voters. If true, that shift in costs could eventually mean higher property taxes for county homeowners, since local governments are just as short of cash as the state is. Some, like Del. Guy Guzzone, are still hoping the economy, and thus revenues, will improve enough in the next few years to prevent the cost shift.

The idea that a huge partisan divide separates Democrats from Republicans in the Maryland General Assembly seemed absurd at the Howard County Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative wrap-up discussion last week. The Senate's majority and minority leaders - Republican Allan H. Kittleman and Democrat Edward J. Kasemeyer - blew rhetorical kisses at each other, and Del. James E. Malone Jr., a Democrat, spoke of his close relations with at least one conservative county Republican. "Warren Miller is one of my best friends in Annapolis," Malone said at the breakfast event at the Sheraton Hotel in Columbia, noting that conservative and moderate Democrats often work together with the vastly outnumbered Republicans.

Many Howard County members of the General Assembly are using their summers for professional travel, going as near as Washington and as far as Kazakhstan. While Del. Guy Guzzone attended a weeklong seminar in Washington last month, state Sen. Allan H. Kittleman is preparing to go halfway around the world for a cultural exchange trip to the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan with Maryland schools Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick and others. This large, former portion of the old Soviet Union, skewered a few years ago in the comedy film Borat, will host the Marylanders from Friday to Aug. 16. Kittleman, a Republican, said he is looking forward to it. "I've been very involved with literacy in Maryland," he said.

Stung by public backlash, a growing number of lawmakers are considering the repeal of a new law requiring that all Maryland homeowners apply for a tax credit they previously had received automatically. A bill heard yesterday by the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee would restore the automatic protection homeowners have had from being taxed for the full value of their homes when property assessments rise rapidly. Last year, the General Assembly unanimously approved the new law, which requires that all homeowners apply for the Homestead Tax Credit.

Schuster, 70, a real estate agent. If we had to choose between the two, our favorite would be the spunky Mrs. Schuster, whose motto is "been there, done it."

Rarely does a week go by without a headline demonstrating the ethical quandaries posed by political fundraising. Most recently, Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold drew attention for receiving more than $100,000 at a fundraiser hosted by Sallie Mae Executive Chairman Albert L. Lord, who, four days later, won a key approval from the County Council for an 18-hole golf course he's building. "No quid pro quo," insists Mr. Leopold, and indeed, the proposal had no apparent opposition on the council to overcome - but the timing stank.
