From everything I have read about Larry Hogan, he is not a politician, at least not by today's standards or those of Maryland. Anyone following him knows that he is offering sound solutions based on hard truths instead of the panaceas that voters seem to prefer. He has also appealed to black voters to look beyond race and objectively compare his platform with that of his opponent, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown ( "Hogan, Brown differ in message to black voters," Oct. 4). Another group that he needs to appeal to is non-voting conservative whites who want all or nothing.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan threw around a lot of charges and numbers during Tuesday's gubernatorial debate. Here are some of the facts behind the accusations. • Brown repeatedly said Hogan wants to hand corporations "a $300 million tax giveaway. " Hogan has said he wants to reduce Maryland's corporate tax rate from 8.25 to 6 percent, which translates into $300 million of tax revenue in one year. Hogan contends the increased economic activity from lower taxes would eventually more than offset that loss.

I think it should be a person's own choice to do whatever drug a person chooses as long as it doesn't involve committing a crime to acquire the drug. When it comes to marijuana, we should be able to have and smoke as much as we like ( "Fixing Md.'s marijuana law," Oct. 3). People like me and many others work very hard for what we have and like to smoke at the end of the day to relax and relieve stress. Ignorant people consider us criminals for doing so. It doesn't kill anyone and it's very helpful to cancer patients going through chemotherapy or radiation treatments.

Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has been suspended one game by the Big Ten for actions after the team's loss to Northwestern on Sunday that were in violation of the conference's sportsmanship policy. As part of the penalty, the school has also been fined $10,000. Cirovski will incur the total cost of the fine, according to a team spokeswoman. Cirovski will serve the suspension Wednesday night against Virginia Commonwealth. According to a story in The Diamondback , Maryland's student paper, Cirovski "tried pushing his way toward the officials, his arms flailing and his voice booming" after the 3-2 overtime loss at Northwestern.

An overwhelming majority of Marylanders are worried about pollution in the Chesapeake Bay, a new poll finds, and most are concerned enough about the bay's slumping crabs to back a moratorium on crabbing. The survey by Goucher College found 84 percent of those contacted last week said they were very or somewhat concerned about bay pollution. Just 14 percent said it worried them little or not at all. The 708 Marylanders interviewed by telephone were only a little more upbeat about the overall health of the state's environment - 62 percent rated it fair to poor, while 36 percent consider it good to excellent.

Montgomery County officials said Tuesday they will no longer honor federal requests to hold illegal immigrants beyond their scheduled release date unless U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement can demonstrate the person is likely to have committed a crime. The decision means three of Maryland's four largest jurisdictions -- Montgomery and Prince George's counties along with Baltimore city -- have changed long-standing policies this year that treated the federal immigration detainers the same as criminal warrants.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's recent commentary on Maryland's 2013 Firearms Safety Act is disingenuous and deceitful ( "Brown: I will enforce gun safety law," Oct. 2). The law does nothing to make Marylander's safer. Maryland has had strict guns laws for the last 30 years, yet we are ranked the eighth most violent state according to U.S. Justice Department statistics. Nor did the law truly ban the sale of military style assault rifles; it banned a few models, but many "sporting rifles" with "assault style" features are still legally available.
