Schools fail the learning-disabled Centennial Lane Elementary is No. 7 on the list of schools with the highest percentage of students scoring "advanced" on the MSAs ("How Schools Get it Right," The Sun, July 22). Unfortunately, Howard County gets it "wrong" when it comes to educating learning-disabled children. The gifted-and-talented population benefits immensely, as resources, opportunities and curriculum are plentiful for those kids. Those with learning disabilities must fight for appropriate services from an underfunded, understaffed special-education department that refuses to use the word dyslexia.

Lockheed Martin Corp. reported a $54 million first-quarter profit yesterday, beating expectations but still showing signs of slumping sales and flat earnings in its aircraft manufacturing and space systems businesses. The nation's largest defense contractor reported earnings per share, after a charge, of 12 cents for the first three months of this year, two cents higher than the average analyst's estimate. While better than anticipated, the results were down more than 70 percent from last year when adjusted for one-time charges.

"We are able to manage the changes that are taking place all around us," Hairston told the 700 school officials who gathered at Loch Raven High School. "Our successes show we are making progress in the midst of change."

State, Annapolis city and public housing officials, and residents appear close to resolving their disputes over the new Bloomsbury Square complex, which could clear the way for public housing residents to move into the state-built waterfront community. Just when remains a question, though. The latest tentative mid-August move-in date passed without residents budging from their 62-year-old public housing complex, which sits next door and is due to be razed for a $26 million expansion of the Lowe House Office Building.

This wasn't supposed to be a big year for the environmentalist movement in Annapolis, and that may yet prove to be the case. Program Open Space funds are under assault from the state Senate, millions of cap-and-trade dollars from power plants are being diverted from alternative energy and efficiency programs, and some important environmental programs have had their budgets cut (as many state government functions have). But with just a week left in the legislative session, the greenies are in a surprisingly good position to pull off some significant wins.
