Where is the financial leadership to that people want from this legislature? Raising fees as well as taxes on alcohol will certainly be job killers in this state. People will struggle more than ever, especially those in lower-class brackets who may never recover from the damage the "Great Recession. " The state is simply getting too greedy for it own good. Instead of thinking of compassion, creating jobs, and financial responsibility, the Democratic legislature continues to move forward with reckless abandon with nothing but dollar signs in their eyes while at the same time not really caring for small business and the struggling citizens who live here.

Instead of asking for a higher bottle tax to pay for school repairs, maybe Baltimore MayorStephanie Rawlings-Blakeshould first ask Gov.Martin O'Malleywhat happened to the millions of dollars he couldn't account for when he was mayor. If she wants to sell the city's historic properties to help fund the budget, she should be asking the governor why he didn't make needed repairs while mayor. She might ask for state aid but since the General Assembly recently passed a "doomsday budget," there probably isn't any money.

Hilltop pupils get shoes Nearly 300 children at Hilltop Elementary School in Glen Burnie have new shoes as the result of efforts by Leadership Anne Arundel Flagship program graduates. A six-member group from the leadership-training organization launched a drive to buy footwear for the children after learning that some young students were wearing ill-fitting or inappropriate shoes to school. Principal Louise DeJesu and staff members measured children's feet, and the shoes were purchased and recently delivered.

If MayorStephanie Rawlings-Blakeexpects to increase the city's population by 10,000 in the coming years, she better hope she finds someone of the same caliber as Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld ("Bealefeld to step down," May 4). With defense attorneys and community activists bemoaning his zero tolerance policy, he held his ground. This city is infested with crime other than murder. Residents don't flee to the suburbs because the city is no longer enjoyable, they leave because of crime and high taxes.

Your recent report on shootings in Baltimore highlighted the tragic violence afflicting our city ("Deadly summer," June 30). From the leadership shown by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, however, it is obvious our leaders are not in crisis mode working to combat this frightening turn of events. When The Sun tracked down the mayor at a convention in Las Vegas, she provided a less than accurate comparison of our city's violence to that of other major cities. I hope her trip was were restful, because now is the time to get into crisis mode.

In response to the detention center scandal in Baltimore, it's not hard to understand who runs the jail. It is clearly known who runs Baltimore and who runs Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown. This misleading authority of slackers who hold titles should be in jail themselves. President Barack Obama can testify to what advantages can be taken today. Slackers are voted in by their peers or hired by their family and a loss takes place that the rest of Maryland clearly sees every day. Is it a wonder any system in Baltimore will inevitably fail.

Over and over again, we see that elections are ultimately not really about the issues or leadership qualities. They're about money. Whoever has the most money bribes, er, wins over the voters ("Ehrlich leads in donors; O'Malley leads in cash" and "Bernstein outpaces Jessamy in funds," Aug. 19). I suspect our nation's Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves. Mary Shaw, Philadelphia, PA

Republican Larry Hogan released his first negative television ad of the campaign for governor Friday. It hits a point already hammered by Democrat Anthony Brown's opponents in the primary: Brown's role in the flubbed state health exchange. What the ad says: The 30-second TV spot opens with footage of Brown saying "I'm proud that Governor O'Malley has asked me to lead the O'Malley-Brown administration's efforts in health care. " It then transitions to footage of broadcast news coverage of troubles with Maryland's online health insurance marketplace.

Last night, in a televised address to the nation, President Barack Obama outlined his administration's strategy for battling the terrorist group ISIS. While I support and even welcome part of his remarks - such as his firm distancing of ISIS from the true tenets of Islam, his admission that the majority of ISIS' victims have been other Muslims and his commitment of U.S. support for Syrian rebels fighting Bashar Assad's regime - there are some issues that cause concern. We must acknowledge that ISIS is born partly as a result of extensive destabilization in the region caused by America's and Britain's 2003 invasion of Iraq in search of non-existent weapons of mass destruction.

The Ravens have had many public relations blunders through the Ray Rice situation, and they had another major one Monday night. Where was owner Steve Bisciotti? And since he didn't post at a night time news conference, where were the other leaders in the organization -- president Dick Cass and general manager Ozzie Newsome? After terminating the contract of running back Ray Rice Monday afternoon, Bisciotti should have appeared before the media to address questions and publicly apologize for the poor judgment made by his franchise.

The response to crises such as the 9/11 attacks, the Boston Marathon bombings or the landslide that collapsed a Baltimore street this spring inevitably elevate the public consciousness of the professionalism and courage of police, firefighters and other first responders. But sometimes a different kind of consciousness is raised. Corruption or lawless behavior by public-safety personnel - such as the shootings and looting by New Orleans police officers following Hurricane Katrina or, more recently, the police chokehold that killed an unarmed man on a Staten Island sidewalk, caught on video by members of the community - can undo all of that goodwill in a moment.

There are endless metrics to gauge whether the United States is ahead or behind other countries. Finland does education better and cheaper. Russians and central Europeans beat Americans in alcohol consumption. But it takes only five minutes for the average American to earn enough money to buy a pint of beer -- far less time than in any other nation. And, when it comes to meat consumption, only the Australians come close to matching the amount of dead animal we eat in the land of the free and the home of the obese.

I am a member of the team that worked with University of Maryland University College President Javier Miyares and Board Chair Mark Gerencser to propose a plan to reorganize UMUC to meet the rapidly evolving changes in the way higher education is delivered worldwide ( "Transforming UMUC," July 30). In order to meet these difficult and complex challenges, exceptional leadership is essential, and Mr. Miyares and Mr. Gerencser have met those challenges with open and transparent leadership that has resulted in the formation of an exceptional plan moving forward.

Where is our leadership, any leadership? With the recent BGE PeakRewards program debacle of not preparing or managing an event that was forecast several weeks in advance, how can the utility ever survive a true emergency? It won't and we won't with this current management set! Meanwhile, Baltimore is cutting down 136 mature trees for a weekend event. Where is Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake? City residents should be crying because the current administration does not care. Somewhere, William Donald Schaefer must be crying also.

Two weeks ago I noted that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's advocacy on behalf of the farm bill working its way through Congress proved that she was just more of the same of the failed leadership that Baltimore has been subjected to over the years.  The latest stunt, as reported by WBAL-TV , re-emphasizes that point: "Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is looking for city residents to give input on how they think the city can...

Rep. Andy Harris, Maryland's sole Republican in Congress, said Friday he is seeking the chairmanship of an influential conservative caucus of lawmakers in the House of Representatives. The Cockeysville lawmaker wants to lead the Republican Study Committee, a group that has grown with the wave of conservatives — including Harris — who swept the party to power in the chamber in 2010. The caucus represents more than two-thirds of all House Republicans, giving its leader a powerful bloc with which to influence legislation.

Amid the old Terps jerseys and the "Daddy's Girls" picture frame and the College Cup posters in Sasho Cirovski's office sit the Maryland soccer coach's two bookcases. They're packed, he says, with "every coaching book you can imagine. " One book in particular stands out: the autobiography of Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson, who before his 2013 retirement won 13 English Premier League titles, 19 domestic cups and two Champions League crowns. He is, in short, probably soccer's most successful manager of all time - and by far its most legendary.
