Maryland officials are coming out with a high-tech, hard-to-duplicate driver's license aimed at thwarting underage drinkers and others with criminal intent. And it comes in colors. Although the state's driver's license was in the news recently because one of the president's daughters got caught with a fake Maryland ID at a Connecticut bar, Motor Vehicle Administration officials say they have been planning a makeover for the past couple of years, bowing to the computer-age technology that has turned document forgery into a cottage industry.

The office of Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot recently released a report suggesting that Maryland students start school after Labor Day so that families can take one last summer-fling vacation, thereby giving the state a nearly $75 million economic boost. I haven't crunched any numbers on the topic but, as a parent with school-age children, I believe the report's glowing financial projections fail to take into account several factors that work against this predicted surge in tourism-related dollars.

As music videos played on flat screen TVs overhead, Brendon Lee, 7, sank into a brown cushioned stool at Shoe City on Monday while his great-aunt poked the toe of the white Converse sneaker on his left foot. It was the right shoe but the wrong size. "Your toe is right there," said Evelyn Forby, as she waited for a store associate to check in the back for something larger. New shoes were the last thing on the list as the Baltimore resident wrapped up back-to-school shopping for the boy she's raised since he was a baby.

Baltimore's top politicians are set to receive automatic 2.5 percent pay raises, following a years-old decision by an independent body. The salary hikes — which would increase the mayor's $159,380 salary to $163,365 — are tied to raises that city union workers receive each year, according to a 2010 decision by the Compensation Commission for Elected Officials. The cost-of-living increases would take effect in January following a legal vetting by the Board of Estimates on Wednesday.

In the latest political fallout for Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. of Hunt Valley, the office supply superstore Staples Inc. will pull its advertising during certain Sinclair programs in response to what it described as customer complaints about "one-sided" news coverage. The retailer said that beginning Monday, it would stop advertising during local programming on the 62 stations that Sinclair owns or operates across the country. The local Sinclair ads account for a small part of Staples' media spending, a spokesman for the No. 1 office supply chain said.
