ANNAPOLIS - The ordinary calico cat would be elevated to official Maryland symbol if a new bill sponsored by Delegate Kevin Kelly, D-Allegany, is signed into law this session. Maryland already has a lengthy roster of other official state animals, most with more obvious connections to the state: dog, Chesapeake Bay retriever; bird, Baltimore Oriole; crustacean, blue crab; and fish, rockfish. So why is Maryland considering a state cat? And why calico? Last spring, five then-fourth-grade students at Western Port Elementary School in Allegany County felt that it was time.

Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill to repeal the death penalty is one step closer to passage after a House committee voted Friday to approve it. The bill - already passed by the Senate - goes now to the full House of Delegates. The House Judiciary Committee's 14-8 vote to approve the bill came after Republicans offered more than a half-dozen amendments seeking to allow the death penalty for some crimes, including mass murder. One after another, they were voted down by the same margin as on the bill itself.

We both read pTC a lot as youngsters and still try to keep up with new releases.

"I'm not sure I could properly identify the 'greatest' book I've ever read. I can only tell you that the 'Autobiography of Malcolm X' was the book that had the greatest impact on my life. To a young black man growing up on Chicago's South Side, the book was a revelation, prompting me to look at myself and my world as I've never done before."- Bryant GumbelHost of CBS' "Public Eye";former host, NBC's "Today Show"From "Books That Shaped Successful People," by Kevin H.

House panel OKs effort to raise limit in small-claims court The House Judiciary Committee approved a bill last night that would increase the amount a person could sue for in small-claims court to $5,000. The effort to increase the limit from $2,500 is part of a nationwide campaign to make small-claims court more accessible to consumers and small-business owners. Both the House and Senate approved identical legislation the past two years, but Gov. Parris N. Glendening vetoed it both times at the urging of the Maryland Trial Lawyers Association.
