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).

Holtz won't suspend Irish playersNotre Dame coach Lou Holtz said yesterday that he will not suspend or dismiss quarterback Rick Mirer and linebacker Demetrius DuBose for their weekend arrests at an off-campus party, but will discipline them in another way for violating team rules.Holtz stopped short of saying whether the two first-team players would start in the season opener Saturday at home against Indiana, but indicated the two probably would play."I have every reason to believe that Rick and Demetrius due to extenuating and mitigating circumstances happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I'm of the opinion this will be confirmed in the future," Holtz said in a statement he read after practice Sunday.
