Pedersen, who led the State Highway Administration through the two biggest projects in its history, said Wednesday that he will step down at the end of the month to travel with his wife and explore other professional opportunities. The soft-spoken, well-respected Pedersen, 60, whose retirement after 81/2 years as state highway administrator and 29 years with the agency takes effect June 30, said the decision is personal and does not reflect any policy disagreements with the administration of Gov. Martin O'Malley.

THERE ARE topics that just don't get discussed around thoroughbred barns, at least not within earshot of reporters on the Triple Crown trail. The trainers' insecurities. The horses' ailments, treatments and shortcomings. Owners who push hard. Such touchy subjects almost always are dealt with privately. But those rules are ignored around Griffinite, the longest shot in Saturday's Preakness at 50-1 on Pimlico's early line. The winner of the Lafayette Stakes in Kentucky last month comes with no shortage of potentially delicate subjects, but don't worry, it's fine to bring up any of them.

Maryland's highway chief says the speed cameras deployed in work zones around the state aren't generating enough fines to cover their operating costs. And he couldn't be more delighted. "It is worth our having to come up with additional money to cover the costs," State Highway Administrator Neil J. Pedersen said Wednesday at a news conference to promote safe driving in work zones. Since the camera program began last fall, Pedersen said, his employees and contractors have noticed a decrease in the number of vehicles going more than 10 mph over the speed limit in work zones.

The State Highway Administration closed one of the two bridges leading into Ocean City to truck traffic Wednesday afternoon after inspectors found deterioration of one of the girders that supports the structure. Highway Administrator Neil J. Pedersen said he ordered the emergency restrictions, which will bar vehicles heavier than 6,000 pounds from the Route 90 bridge, after receiving recommendations from staff and consulting engineers. He said the bridge remains safe for passenger vehicle traffic but that anything larger than a pickup truck would be diverted to the U.S. 50 bridge.

The best 3-year-old filly in America ran yesterday at Laurel Park. That statement comes from Ernie Paragallo, who happens to own the filly, Amazing Buy. The daughter of High Yield, whom Paragallo bought one year ago for $350,000, won the $75,000 Wide Country Stakes for her third triumph in four starts. Based at Aqueduct, Amazing Buy has won two stakes already this year. "She's as good as any 3-year-old filly in America right now," Paragallo said. "She's the best filly I've owned." Paragallo, who lives on Long Island, campaigned two outstanding colts: Unbridled's Song, who won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile in 1995 and Florida Derby and Wood Memorial Stakes in 1996, and Artax, who was champion sprinter in 1999.

The State Highway Administration stripped nine procurement officials of their government--issued credit cards yesterday - months after auditors found that they purchased supplies at exorbitant prices. SHA Administrator Neil J. Pedersen took the action one day after coming under fire at a General Assembly committee hearing for leaving the cards in the hands of employees who paid up to 28 times the retail price for common janitorial and maintenance items. The auditors said Tuesday that three state agencies spent $1.4 million to purchase goods at inflated prices from 17 suppliers, including a Florida firm that has been accused of bribing thousands of civil servants in state and local governments across the country.
