State environmental officials say latex paint that washed into a stream Wednesday near a footpath along White Acre Road in Columbia's Oakland Mills village poses no threat to the surrounding environment.About 7: 30 p.m., Howard County fire officials responded to a call of a "white chemical" floating in the stream near Talbot Springs Elementary School.Firefighters couldn't contain the mixture with dikes because it was solvent. But water samples revealed the liquid had "minor indications" of mercury -- which is used to prevent paint from molding in cans -- said Quentin Banks, a spokesman for the Maryland Department of the Environment.

We can't afford to delay articulating the strategic course we intend to take.Short-term conflicts and specific issues can then be debated within that context.
