As I watch the election unfold, I think of the last four years with President Barack Obama. I hear all of the comparisons, the blame assigned the former president, the spin media outlets put on facts and the rhetoric the campaigns use to sway voters. In deciding my choice, there are some key factors I will use. You often hear that if you vote for Mitt Romney, you will be getting four more years of George W. Bush. This is like saying, if Hillary Clinton had been elected, she would have governed in the exact same manner as President Obama.

The sixth season of the Charm City Youth Lacrosse League begins March 29 at Carroll Park, and its continued success over the years is a great reminder of Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate and current Attorney General Doug Gansler's passionate commitment to Baltimore City youth. In 2009, Mr. Gansler founded the league to provide a mix of mentoring, lacrosse skills training and league play to underserved Baltimore City youth at no cost. The league promotes positive social interaction, builds leadership skills and enables participants to forge relationships with leaders from the Baltimore business and civic communities, who speak at league practices.

Four Seasons Elementary School fifth-grader Jewel Golston wants to be president when she grows up, and already she's putting in time learning leadership skills for the job. Jewel joined about 400 Anne Arundel fourth- and fifth-graders in the public school system's second annual Elementary School Leadership Conference on Thursday at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. County high school students from its student government association helped lead workshops at the conference, which Anne Arundel school officials say is the only one of its kind in the state for elementary school students.

Hiking with a 50-pound backpack for the better part of a day is physically demanding, but doing so up the side of a mountain is exhausting. Wendy Cirko found that out the hard way. She could have been sitting on a couch in her Bel Air home, watching TV, she said. But as she grabbed tufts of grass to help her on the steep ascent, all the while trying not to think about how far she could fall if she weren't careful, she couldn't help wondering what she had gotten herself into. All this came on just Day Three of her 77-day National Outdoor Leadership School program, a three-part trip through New Zealand that included about 40 days of backpacking, about 30 days of kayaking and about 10 days aboard a 40-foot sailboat.

Ken Niumatalolo has often said during his four seasons as Navy's head coach that developing leadership skills is more important for his players than winning football games. It was hard to tell during Niumatalolo's first three years whether the Midshipmen had their priorities right, considering that they won 27 games. But the past month has given Navy (2-4) plenty of opportunity to prove its coach right, with a four-game losing streak heading into Saturday's meeting with East Carolina (2-4)

Old Mill High School junior Nick Lefavor was elected several months ago as the next student member of the Anne Arundel County school board. And though he says he's familiar with the issues affecting county students, he's taking a couple of summer programs to fine-tune his leadership skills. Through the programs, Lefavor said, he hopes to learn much about board decorum. "I hope to learn about how to compose myself and handle myself in a professional manner," he said. "I hope to learn some more ways to relate to all people.

It's one of the signature scenes in Baltimore sports and one that could play out for the final time Sunday when the Ravens host the Indianapolis Colts in an opening-round playoff game. Ray Lewis, No. 52, circles his teammates and stomps from one to the next, pressing his face within inches of each man, looking deep into their eyes. "What time is it?" he shouts. "Game time," they chant in unison. "Any dogs in the house?" he bellows. "Woof, woof, woof," they bark before taking the field at M&T Bank Stadium.

Most high school students don't know what they want to do with their lives. That's not the case for Lauren McDaniel, a 14-year-old sophomore at Glenelg High School. "I'm very interested in the medical field," said the dedicated teenager. "I'm doing independent research, a college level-type course, on the relationship between mental illness and substance abuse." McDaniel, who has a 4.0 grade-point average, is making sure she lays a good foundation for her future by taking rigorous academic courses.

The recent health care editorial, "The canceled policies" (Oct. 31), like many other opinion pieces published by the Sun, minimizes the latest of presidential leadership problems to protect Barack Obama. Should you not be addressing the question of why we should believe the federal government is capable of managing the health care system based on the weak leadership competency demonstrated by this administration? Consider the failure of the stimulus bill to create jobs, the IRS abuse of power in targeting conservative groups, the inconsistent approach to Syria, lingering questions about Benghazi, and the lack of follow up with promised immigration and gun reform.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | February 7, 2013
When Dr. Robert Tomback became superintendent of Harford County Public Schools in 2009, he was not only an unknown from Baltimore County, but also it was unknown how he might perform. The direction of the school system's leadership structure was another great unknown. The county was making the transition from a board of education wholly appointed by the governor to a board with a majority of its members elected by the people of Harford County. The Tomback era in the school system also came about amid a time of tumult resulting from the unexpected death of the previous superintendent, Jacqueline Haas, who succumbed at 59 to an asthma attack in late 2008 during the Christmas break.

The group of Howard County teenagers used Facebook and Twitter to get the word out: They were recruiting youth singers, performers and improvisational acts to perform at a fundraising concert at a senior center. For some, the idea of teens getting together to hang out with and perform for seniors might seem as odd as the New York Philharmonic performing on the "X Factor. " For Howard County's Leadership University (also called Leadership U), it is how area high school students reach out to the county's diverse population to develop leadership and service skills.
