Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon's chief of staff, Demaune Millard, is taking paid leave of absence, a decision he made Wednesday after accusations surfaced that he assaulted an ex-girlfriend. "He wants to do what is right for himself and for the mayor," said Dixon's spokesman, Scott Peterson. Peterson said that Millard had planned to take time off after the city budget process concluded this week. Peterson said he does not know how long Millard will be on leave. Elizabeth C.

Clemens Crossing third-grade teacher Sorsha Mulroe grew up in the Philippines. Her husband, Triadelphia Ridge fifth-grade teacher Kevin Mulroe, once studied in Spain. When they married four years ago, the couple honeymooned in Morocco. Though they loved their jobs teaching in Howard County, the Mulroes' experiences in other countries gave them a wanderlust that they never could seem to shake. "Once you get sand in your shoes, it's always there," said Kevin Mulroe, 29. When the two learned that they could take a two-year leave of absence to teach overseas, they set their sights on Italy, London and Sorsha's home country.

We are far from learning all the facts about Anne Arundel County Police Chief Col. James E. Teare Sr.'s involvement, if any, in the alleged misconduct described in the indictment against County Executive John Leopold. But we do know enough to have serious questions about what he knew and when, and to worry about the effective leadership of the department while those questions remain unanswered. In light of Mr. Teare's refusal to answer substantive questions about the matter, and the evident dysfunction in county law enforcement, the chief needs to take a leave of absence until this case is resolved.

Whoever raised concerns with Harbor Bank over the mayoral candidacy of its employee, Baltimore Councilman Keiffer J. Mitchell Jr., didn't do the city or Mayor Sheila Dixon any favors. The complaints led this week to his being placed on an unpaid leave of absence in an action that smacks of political intimidation. Harbor Bank President Joseph Haskins Jr. isn't saying who complained, just that he decided to rethink keeping Mr. Mitchell on the payroll as a business development officer after receiving "too many calls" that questioned Mr. Mitchell's mayoral ambitions and his work at the bank.
