There is that marvelous recruiting base that runs the length of the Baltimore-Washington corridor. There is the stunning arena, the Comcast Center, where kids — young men — get to play in a pro setting. Now there is the tradition that Gary Williams carved out over 22 seasons, the undeniable vitality of a top tier Division I program resurrected to new heights by the coach who came back home to do it. What's not to like about Maryland basketball? "When I take the pulse around college basketball," ESPN analyst Dave Telep said, "I think this is one job that can be dangerous to a lot of people.

To understand how unevenly the recession and recovery rippled across Maryland, consider its economic extremes. At one end, there's Anne Arundel County. Its employment base was 7 percent larger this spring than it was five years earlier, a gain of 17,000 new jobs. A major driver of that growth, Fort Meade, is now the state's single largest employer - so big it hires thousands of people each year "just because of attrition," said installation spokeswoman Mary Doyle. At the other end, just a few dozen miles away, is Talbot County.

Former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach said Monday that he felt optimistic following his second interview for the Maryland job and that he can't guess why the school did not hire him. Leach said Monday afternoon that he had not heard anything from Maryland since leaving College Park. His interview — it was his second with representatives of the school — ended last Thursday and Maryland hired Connecticut coach Randy Edsall, who was introduced to the media on Monday. "I don't really have much comment on the process or any of that.

COLLEGE PARK - Tom McMillen could hardly have been a more highly touted recruit. "The best high school player in America," read Sports Illustrated's headline in bold lettering on a 1970 cover depicting the 6-foot-11 Mansfield (Pa.) basketball star. It was a lot to live up to - high school athletes were not normally hyped the way they are today - but McMillen didn't disappoint Maryland or its coach, Lefty Driesell. He averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds in his Terps career. On Sunday, McMillen - a Rhodes Scholar who went on to play in the NBA and serve in the U.S. House of Representatives - will be among the new inductees into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in Kansas City, Mo. "I'm really proud of him," said Driesell.

For the second straight month, Maryland added jobs but saw its unemployment rate go up. The state's jobless rate rose to 7 percent in June from 6.7 percent in May, the U.S. Department of Labor said Thursday. Unemployment also increased slightly from 6.9 percent in June 2012. Maryland gained 4,300 jobs last month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics survey showed. The federal estimates are preliminary and adjusted to account for seasonal changes in hiring and layoffs. Maryland, with a labor force of 3.1 million people, was among 28 states with higher unemployment in June.

An outsider with experience in leading a neighboring state through sometimes-unpopular reforms will become the next Maryland superintendent of schools, the state school board announced Friday. Delaware Secretary of Education Lillian M. Lowery, a 57-year-old with more than 35 years of teaching and administrative experience in several states, will take over July 1 as Maryland's schools enter a year of transition. "We think we have gotten the best person that could have taken this job. She has a long track record of success on all the important education issues," said school board President James DeGraffenreidt.

Former Republican candidate for Comptroller of Maryland released the following statement this afternoon about Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposed gas tax increase: In 2010, I spoke openly about the reckless prospect of raising gasoline taxes here in Maryland. Unfortunately, our representatives in Annapolis failed to listen, and have embarked upon a path to raising the gas tax here in Maryland. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that a gas tax hike is a bad deal for Maryland families and job creators.

Randy Edsall had been in this position before, coaching his first game with a new team. But Monday night's 2011 season opener at Maryland seemed different than it had been for him 12 years ago at Connecticut, or even when he joined Tom Coughlin to help launch the Jacksonville Jaguars five years before that. To Edsall, those jobs were a lot tougher than taking over the Terps from Ralph Friedgen. "This isn't my first first rodeo," Edsall said over the summer, at the Atlantic Coast Conference media day in Pinehurst.

Your editorial advocating tax increases to fix Annapolis' job-killing spending problem once again misses the mark ("Tax increases should be on the table," Aug. 23). Government's insistence on uncontrolled, unsustainable spending has saddled future generations of Americans with record debt. Believing that significant cuts are not immediately needed is both naive and unwise. Maryland's revenues have not kept pace with the growth of the state budget, forcing elected officials to scramble to cover billion dollar-plus deficits.

Your recent editorial advocating taxation of online sales ("The digital divide," June 26) understates the legal and practical difficulties of imposing such a tax. Far from being a "subsidy" or "tax exemption" for such sellers, the current law is based on the Supreme Court's ruling that the commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution bars states from imposing sales tax collection responsibilities on companies that are not physically present in...

There's no denying the convenience and simplicity of shopping online. Successful retailers like Amazon.com and Overstock.com have become giants as a result. Small wonder that online sales have grown to an estimated $200 billion annually, or about 7 percent of all retail transactions that take place in this country. But should taxpayers be forced to subsidize the industry? That's essentially what happens now as the bulk of digital sales are not subject to state and local sales taxes.
