The Chesapeake Bay's cleanup may be delayed "several decades" by the slow pace at which farm pollution is being flushed from ground water on the Delmarva Peninsula, a new study says. The research by the U.S. Geological Survey also suggests pollution control efforts on Eastern Shore farms may need to be increased in order to achieve hoped-for water quality improvements. Using a computer model to simulate ground-water flows, USGS scientists found that when nitrogen from fertilized farm fields on the Shore soaks into the ground, it takes 20 to 40 years on average for the nutrient-laden water to make its way underground into streams and rivers.  Ground water now oozing into bay tributaries is likely carrying pollution picked up by rainfall decades ago, researchers said.

Paul Capriolo and the crew at Social Growth Technologies are looking forward to graduation, having spent years getting ready for the world outside this one-story beige building in Columbia. The Maryland Center for Entrepreneurship is not a school, but it does cultivate business and launch its charges toward bigger things. In fall 2009, Capriolo, partner Patrick Jenkins and an intern started in one office at the building; the company now has 22 employees, occupying about a dozen offices and some 5,000 square feet - a third of the space available for lease at MCE. By this summer, they expect to move to offices in Columbia three times that size.

In response to a recent article in The Sun on the Maryland Center for Excellence on Early Intervention for Serious Mental Illness, Rene Muller suggests that murder may be an understandable response to overwhelming anxiety and trauma and efforts to treat these people with medications may be misguided. In the process of putting forth this argument in his commentary, "Mental health profession falls short in stopping violence" (Oct. 28), Mr. Muller reduces the treatment of mental illnesses with psychotic symptoms to the choice between pharmacological and psychosocial intervention and does his readers a further disservice by inaccurately portraying the mission of Maryland's Center for Excellence on Early Intervention for Serious Mental Illness.
