Go ahead and try pinning down Montgomery County Executive Isiah "Ike" Leggett about whom he'll endorse in the Democratic primary for governor. Leggett may smile politely, but he will be wincing on the inside. You might as well ask him which of his family members he prefers most. Can you say "awkward"? Leggett's dilemma: Two of the principal contenders, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur, are from his county, and he knows Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown well.

Months after two illegal immigrants were charged in the killing of a 14-year-old scholar-athlete, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett has sidestepped the controversial idea of requiring potential lawbreakers to prove their immigration status. Instead, police will send the names of all those arrested for violent crimes and handgun violations to federal immigration officials. It's the kind of compromise you might expect from Mr. Leggett, who presides over a county with the fastest-growing immigrant population in the state.

Leggett 'reluctantly' backs slots initiative Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett "reluctantly" endorsed November's slot-machine gambling referendum yesterday, the Democrat said in a statement. Leggett, who represents one of the most solidly anti-slots jurisdictions in the state, said he took the position after concluding that expanded gambling is the only politically viable solution to projected revenue shortages at the state and county level brought on by the weakening economy. "In an ideal world, state and local governments should not be dependent on such revenues to help fund critical programs," Leggett said.

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett has complained that the state's plan for accommodating military base expansion in Maryland does not address expected growth at the National Naval Medical Hospital in Bethesda. In a letter to Gov. Martin O'Malley, Leggett said the draft plan released Nov. 19 did not propose funding for highway or transit improvements that county officials want to head off what Leggett called "an impending traffic nightmare" when the hospital expands. The government's plan to move Walter Reed Army Medical Center from the District of Columbia to the Bethesda naval hospital site will add 2,500 workers to the campus.

In their heyday, the Galesville Hot Sox drew hundreds of fans to lively baseball games on lazy Sunday afternoons. The all-black team, the heart of South County's African-American community, played on a grassy field purchased in the late 1800s by a former slave named Henry Wilson. It has been 10 years since the team, which integrated in the 1960s, last suited up. And the 26-acre lot where it once played against Negro Leagues greats has been up for sale since the fall. But it just might be time to get out the bats again.

ROCKVILLE -- Isiah "Ike" Leggett's boyhood home, a shotgun shack in the Jim Crow South, could practically fit inside the modest suite of downtown offices he moved into this month after taking the oath of office as Montgomery County executive. To call where he started "humble" is to engage in understatement. To call where he has ended up "historic" is not hyperbole. Leggett, who 20 years ago first ran for office without putting his face on his literature for fear he would be discriminated against for being African-American, became the first black person to lead a majority-white jurisdiction in Maryland.

After a lively Democratic primary race for Montgomery County executive, contenders Isiah Leggett and Steven Silverman could only watch last night as returns trickled in - a process complicated by problems that caused polling locations in some precincts to open much later than scheduled. Leggett, a former County Council member and former chairman of the state Democratic Party seeking to become Montgomery's first black county executive, appeared to have a significant lead over Silverman, president of the County Council, with less than half of the precincts tallied at the county Board of Elections.
