Anthony Alston was appointed by Anne Arundel County Public Schools to address achievement gaps among student groups. But the executive director of the system's new Office of Equity and Accelerated Student Achievement is also well aware of gaps that exist between the school system and some Anne Arundel communities. Alston discovered some of those gaps in early June, when then-interim Superintendent Mamie Perkins created the office to monitor achievement and report to the deputy superintendent.

COLLEGE PARK -  The Maryland football team's offense attempted a reverse during practice Friday. Most of the defense flowed in the wrong direction, so wide receiver Taivon Jacobs had only one defender between him and the final 15 yards to the end zone. But that defender, senior cornerback Jeremiah Johnson, was not fooled by the reverse and came up to stop Jacobs for about a 2-yard loss. Johnson missed most of last year with a toe injury. He hurt his hamstring once he returned, an injury he aggravated during both the winter and the spring.

After a 19-6 romp over Robert Morris on Wednesday, No. 5 Maryland had a rare weekend without a game. That means 10 days will have passed before the Terps return to action Saturday against archrival and No. 9 Johns Hopkins. Maryland coach John Tillman said the break has been especially helpful for several players who have been nursing injuries not serious enough to end a season, but annoying enough to be a nuisance. “Some of the guys that have needed the rest were able to do that and get the treatment that they need and maybe get some of the rehab that they needed,” Tillman said during his weekly conference call on Tuesday morning.

Maryland men's basketball sophomore guard Seth Allen's timetable for a return to action is still uncertain, his much-anticipated season debut held off by a still-recovering fractured left foot . Will he be healthy in early January? Late January? Will he be ready when he does come back? Those are questions for which Allen might not even have the answer. What we do know is that his rehabilitation is far enough along, apparently, that he can take (and make) 3-pointers inside an empty Comcast Center.

Whether the Grand Prix of Baltimore, which will be run for a third time this Labor Day weekend, can survive depends on two factors: First, drawing and establishing fans of open-wheel racing during a time when the sport has struggled to keep people interested . Second, appeasing downtown businesses hurt by having the streets turned into a race track for the month of August. Organizers have taken many steps toward solving the first problem, moving an area for children inside -- away from the heat and noise -- and promising to book more entertainment options.

Anne Arundel County shut down its government e-mail system for the weekend, after it was plagued with delays for several days. The system was shut down at 5 p.m. Friday, and county information technology workers planned to spend the weekend fixing the system. In a statement, County Executive Laura Neuman Neuman described the problem as "ongoing and progressing delays" with e-mail and other computer applications. Neuman said she hopes the problems can be fixed by Sunday. This week, county workers and elected officials have had problems with the system, including messages that never showed up in inboxes or arrived hours after they were sent.

I did a double take reading your editorial that excused Maryland lawmakers for raiding $1 billion from the state's transportation trust fund to spend on other programs ("We all benefit from transit, and we should all pay for it" Mar 25). Let's explore the logic further. Imagine your neighborhood bank loans an individual money to start a small business. That individual changes his mind and instead uses the money to remodel his home. With a straight face, he informs the bank he's not going to repay the first loan, but expects a second one because he's finally getting around to starting that business.

Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts has myriad issues to tackle as we delve deeper into 2013. Some priorities are the open air drug markets on our streets, the vacant housing issue (which has devoured many a city rowhouse), gangs, homelessness, and finding ways to make our neighborhoods and communities safer places in which to live. The major impediment or obstacle the commissioner is facing is the inherent mistrust of many of his constituents. For some city residents, this mindset has crossed generations.

As the world struggles to deal with its two largest foreign-affairs dilemmas, Syria and Iran, resolutely standing in the way are the BRICs. That's the acronym foreign-policy wonks use for the block of nations that routinely refuses to join the multilateral world of diplomacy, dominated by the United States and the West. They seem to glory in being contrary. The nations are Brazil, Russia, India and China. Russia and China, of course, routinely veto any United Nations Security Council resolution criticizing Syria, as they did for the third time last week.
