State Sen. Paula C. Hollinger, who is running to replace Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin in the 3rd Congressional District, said she has ordered new letterhead for her office after revelations that her current stationery includes her campaign Web site, a violation of ethics rules. On four letters sent to lawmakers this month that were obtained by The Sun, the campaign's Internet site was listed along with Hollinger's Annapolis office contact information and her home address. Hollinger said the listing was an oversight.

A professor at the University of Maryland, College Park is facing conflict-of- interest questions after he used university letterhead to deliver a legal opinion in his role as a consultant to a labor union. Fred Feinstein, an adjunct professor at the School of Public Policy, wrote a letter saying that California health care employees could jeopardize their contract benefits if they left Service Employees International for a competing union. Feinstein received $240,000 in consulting fees from SEIU in 2007 and 2008, which he did not mention in the Jan. 12 letter that was distributed as a flier in the continuing union battle.

In the latest mysterious episode of this year's mayoral race, Baltimore officials abruptly canceled a city-sponsored job fair scheduled to take place yesterday after mayoral candidate and City Councilman Keiffer J. Mitchell Jr. attempted to distribute a flier promoting the event. Though the flier included no mention of his candidacy - and would have been distributed by his council office, not his campaign - an official in Mayor Sheila Dixon's administration said he believed that Mitchell was attempting to politicize the job fair and decided to postpone the event until next month.

New York -- All over this country, retirement-income tragedies are in the making. Couples who counted on life insurance to create benefits for the widow or to build up retirement cash will wake up one day to a terrible discovery. The policy may lapse, or it may deliver far lower benefits than were promised.If you're counting on a policy for your old age, go back to the agent who sold it to you, or to someone in his company. Ask for a projection -- on the insurance company's letterhead -- of its death benefits and cash values for the next 30 years.

NEW YORK -- On Wednesday, Simon & Schuster announced it had bought a novel for $920,000, one of the largest amounts ever paid for a first novel, in part on the strength of endorsements from writers John le Carre and Joseph Wambaugh.On Friday, Mr. le Carre and Mr. Wambaugh denied they had ever seen or heard of the book, "Just Killing Time.""It's straight fraud," Mr. le Carre said of his purported endorsement. "It's like bringing a painting into a gallery with phony authentications from Bernard Berenson."

The 8th District congressional campaign of Christopher Van Hollen Jr. accused his Republican rival yesterday of using her U.S. House stationery for campaign purposes. During the weekend, Rep. Constance A. Morella distributed a campaign letter to the press with the words "House of Representatives" and a rendering of the Capitol at the top. The letter asked Van Hollen to join her in an agreement to keep their campaigns free of so-called "soft money" advertising funded by political party committees and other outside groups.
