Hiring will likely continue at a slow pace through the end of the year, the job placement firm Manpower reported in its latest quarterly survey. Of the 18,000 employers who participated in the study, only 7 percent plan to expand their workforces. But in the Baltimore region, Manpower says, the outlook is brighter. Andrew Francis, branch manager of Manpower's new Baltimore office, talked recently with The Baltimore Sun about hiring expectations locally and what sets the region apart from much of the nation.

I am glad to see the Sunpaper via Tim Wheeler has again cast some light on the gas/Marcellus shale exploration and land leasing problems in the western part of our state ("Second thoughts on gas leasing," Jan. 1). It should come as no surprise to us that the drilling operators and contractors refuse to reveal the down side of their operations or the shortcomings of their property leases; one has only to look at our neighbors to the north and what has happened to their water supplies, their roads and streams.

I read the article "City police shuffle ranks, seek national accreditation" (Dec. 31) with a vested interest as a retired Baltimore City police officer. The awarding of "accreditation" for police agencies is not a new concept and existed well before my own retirement, some 16 years ago. The process of being certified as an accredited agency is exhaustive and covers literally every function within the department. To prepare the agency for this certification is a labor- and time-intensive undertaking, involving participation at all levels.

SAN FRANCISCO - U.S. employers are likely to maintain a brisk hiring pace in the third quarter, according to the quarterly Manpower Employment Outlook Survey. Twenty percent of companies surveyed intend to hire workers in the third quarter on a seasonally adjusted net basis, matching second-quarter hiring plans that were the most optimistic since early 2001. That's up from a net hiring outlook of 7 percent a year ago, said Barbara Beck, executive vice president of North America operations at Manpower, a staffing company.

Despite a substantial increase in police manpower in Baltimore's Eastern District, that crime-ridden part of the city has experienced a 70 percent increase in homicides from January through last month. Significantly reducing homicides has been a central theme of Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris' administration and an initiative in the Eastern District was one of his first projects aimed at achieving that goal. Norris poured more than 100 extra officers into that district two years ago in what police later called a successful drive that reduced homicides by nearly one-third last year.

We've been hearing a lot about a talent shortage in the labor market. But where exactly is the shortage in talent? Because, seriously, it's hard to avoid layoff news coming from all corners of the work force these days. Case in point: Circuit City fired 7 percent of its hourly workers last week. It plans to replace them with lower-paid employees. But recruiters and employment experts say job candidates increasingly have the upper hand in the job market as employers compete for talent.

AITA SHAAB, Lebanon -- To enter southern Lebanon these days you drive down roads where traffic is directed by young men in gray Hezbollah civil defense corps T-shirts and past bulldozers from the Holy War for Reconstruction Co. Hezbollah has emerged as the lead player in the cleanup in southern Lebanon. It has the volunteers, owns the equipment, and has spent years burnishing its image as a champion of the people. Men who were fighting Israeli troops days ago are working beside the Lebanese Red Cross on the grisly job of pulling bodies from the rubble.

The crime-averse O'Malley administration had to admit last week that, so far this year, crime is up over last year. The 4 percent overall increase represented upticks in nearly all categories of crime - including murder - and in all but three of the city's nine police districts. That's pretty much an across-the-board sweep, and some districts saw double-digit spikes in violent crimes. The numbers are, of course, worrisome, but a snapshot of crime in February showed even steeper increases.

WASHINGTON -- Pentagon officials are considering cutting as many as 34,000 soldiers -- the bulk of them from the National Guard -- at a time when U.S. ground forces are stretched in Iraq, according to defense officials. The proposed cuts are part of a reduction in the growth of defense spending over the next five years ordered by the White House. The manpower cuts stem from a decision by top Army leaders to sacrifice troop strength in order to provide money for new weapons systems and other equipment, said defense officials, who requested anonymity.
