The report by Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot on the economic benefits to Maryland from a post-Labor Day school start deserves far more respect, attention and consideration than given to it in a recent editorial in The Sun ("One week and counting," Aug. 19). The comptroller's report follows approval of legislation in the last General Assembly session to establish a task force to study a post-Labor Day start date for Maryland public schools. It is worth noting that following public hearings in both the House and the Senate, the legislation calling for this study passed the Senate 46 to 1, passed the House of Delegates 124 to 6 and was signed into law by Gov. Martin O'Malley.

TripAdvisor has named Admiral Fell Inn , a lovely historic hotel in Fells Point, one of the Top 10 Haunted Hotels in America . Admiral Fell Inn was the only Maryland hotel to make the list of "rooms with a Boo!" TripAdvisor came up with the list by seeing which hotels had the greatest number of traveler comments referencing "ghosts" or "haunted" on TripAdvisor.com. That makes sense. Admiral Fell Inn is a Historic Hotel of America and dates to the 1700s. Plus, it's in Fells Point, which certainly has more than a few ghosts - enough for a cottage industry of sorts.

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold's proposal to raise the hotel tax to generate revenue for the financially strapped school system has drawn sharp opposition from state and local tourism officials, who say it would have a devastating trickle-down effect on the county's economy. The measure - which combined with Maryland's 6 percent sales tax would give the county the state's highest checkout fee and one of the steepest in the country - will drive visitors to competing destinations, officials predicted, saying they've seen it happen elsewhere in Maryland.

The complex in Linthicum, just north of the airport, is expected to break ground shortly before the Crowne and open in mid-to-late 2009.

Cigarette smoking would be banned in nearly every business in Maryland - including bars and restaurants - under legislation that would give the state one of the strictest anti-smoking laws in the country. Proponents call the bill heard by a Senate committee yesterday the Clean Indoor Act of 2003 and say it would go a long way toward protecting people from the dangers of secondhand smoke. Opponents call it a Draconian measure that would do serious harm to Maryland's businesses. "What we're trying to do here is give a reprieve to our citizens from the death penalty they would have from indoor smoking," said Sen. Ida G. Ruben, a Montgomery County Democrat and sponsor of the bill heard before the Senate Finance Committee.

The guy carrying a black duffel bag and walking out a door reserved for employees looked a little suspicious to Julevette Price as she made security rounds at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel garage. "Sir, can I help you? Do you have a car in the garage," she asked. The man turned and Price immediately recognized the "peanut"-shaped head and dark-circled eyes from a crime photo she'd seen earlier in the week. The man fled into a thick July 4 crowd and Price radioed to other security officers who caught him at the other end of the hotel.
