Consumers plan to spend an average of several hundred dollars to upward of $600 getting kids ready for school, and plenty aren't waiting until August, the busiest back-to-school spending period. The National Retail Federation expects families with school-age children to spend an average of $635 on clothing, shoes, supplies and electronics, down from $689 last year, or $26.7 billion total.    Meanwhile, the International Council of Shopping Centers and Goldman Sachs place the average estimate per household much lower, at $285, and said a third of the shoppers polled in a recent survey have started shopping already.

An FBI investigation into whether police officers violated laws while being paid for providing off-duty security at area Staples stores includes not only Baltimore officers but their colleagues in Baltimore County, sources said. Few new details emerged yesterday after the office supply store, based in Massachusetts, confirmed the investigation on Thursday. It could not be learned whether the case has been presented to a federal grand jury. Law enforcement sources with knowledge of the probe have said the investigation centers around a group of mostly city officers - at least a dozen - and could reach into the supervisory ranks.
