Despite entreaties from local United Way volunteers, Carroll seems likely to remain the only county in Maryland that doesn't offer its employees a payroll deduction for the charity.Two of the county's three commissioners said yesterday that a United Way campaign and payroll deduction would be coercive and intrusive.United Way leaders tried to convince them that employees would benefit from an easier way to donate to charities close to home."I have no problem if you want to come solicit our employees, but I don't feel we should do a payroll deduction," said Commissioner Richard T. Yates.

I absolutely support unions when it is appropriate, and I would fight for union representation when it's appropriate. What I disagree with is the concept of "union shops" where all employees must pay dues whether they belong to the union or not ( "Paying one's dues," Jan. 23). Free enterprise should be on both sides of the economy. If a union is appropriate, then let there be a union. But that doesn't mean that it is appropriate for all the workers within the designated work force.

With freedom on our minds as we celebrate the Fourth of July, our state employees will be experiencing a diminishing of their freedom. Beginning with the July 1, 2011 pay period, the state will be withholding an "agency fee" from all state employees, including the two-thirds of state employees who do not want to join the union (higher education employees are specifically excluded). This is due to the passage in the 2009 Legislative Session of Senate Bill 264, a bill requested by the O'Malley Administration which authorized the unions to negotiate with the administration the collection of service fees from non-members.

MARYLAND is not high on the nation's charts of charitable giving. For many here, contributing to worthy causes isn't a habit. The impulse is there, though. Marylanders reached deep into their pockets to assist victims of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, including many first-time charity-givers. Here, of course, the greater need is for continuing services -- and continuing charity. But after years of rising contributions, including a post-9/11 burst, the United Way of Central Maryland last year took in $3 million less than in 2001.

Just do it. Though that's the call-to-exercise ad slogan of a famous maker of running shoes, it applies to investing as well. You don't have to invest a lot of money to make a big long-term difference. Just get started and keep on going.Putting investment money aside on a regular, dollar-by-dollar, month-in and month-out basis, you'll accumulate a lot more than you thought you could. You can invest the money yourself by check. Or you can let credit unions, investment firms, banks, insurance firms or your employer do it for you through automatic programs.

UNITED WAY is the most effective, comprehensive charity drive in our area. It provides an opportunity for many people to contribute to worthy causes through a proven, community-wide umbrella organization.A large part of its effectiveness flows from a workplace payroll deduction plan that many employees choose, allowing them the convenience of making a small contribution every pay period. It is easier and more budget-friendly for those who want to support a broad variety of charities, or a narrow list selected by the donor, in a cost-efficient manner.
