A lawyer representing the private contractor that operated the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School denied yesterday claims by the state that the company allowed conditions at the school to dangerously deteriorate and didn't adequately document all of its spending. As Correctional Services Corp./Youth Services International addressed the allegations for the first time, several key lawmakers said the state must permanently take over Hickey - or shut it down - rather than hire another private contractor to run the troubled juvenile detention center in Cub Hill.

A CARROLL County couple is as happy as can be with their nearly 6-month-old boy. He's happy, healthy and full of life. The couple is particularly pleased with the way he came into the world -- at home -- with just a midwife attending the birth.They didn't want a stressful, last-minute rush to an impersonal hospital or to be subject to many of the tools commonly used for delivering babies in this country. They wanted a truly natural birth.However, what to them was a warm, loving moment has been construed as criminal activity.

Mark Mentzer and Chester Overlock had just opened a high-style home furnishings store in the historic shopping district of Ellicott City, and the first hint of success came when customers asked if they could purchase the display fixtures, too. "We never wanted to be just another retail store," said Mentzer, the business half of the partnership behind Whats in Store. "We wanted to be a shopping experience." And the new owners are so agreeable, customers can literally take that experience home with them.
