Nearly a year after Maryland announced its athletic teams would leave the Atlantic Coast Conference to join the Big Ten in 2014, ACC commissioner John Swofford said in interview Wednesday that there is no ill will despite lawsuits that are pending between the school and the league. During the ACC's men's basketball media day in Charlotte, N.C., Swofford told The Baltimore Sun, “I wish them well. I hope that it turns out to be a good decision for the people of Maryland. We have moved on in our way this year [with the addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame]

State could scare private buyers away Gov. Martin O'Malley upping the ante by introducing legislation that would grant the state the authority to acquire Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park under eminent domain could discourage private buyers concerned about the state's power to seize the properties ("A bid to save tracks, race," April 8). For years, naysayers have been preaching pessimism and gloom about the horse racing industry, and Mr. O'Malley's actions only provide them with more ammunition.

The Sun editorial board never fails to agree with every tax and fee our governor thrusts upon the citizens of Maryland ("The rain tax sham," April 18). The governor has created 37 new taxes and fees during his seven years in office, and though he claims to have made cuts in the state budget, the facts show the budget has increased substantially. Rather than ask questions, The Sun prefers to take a few cheap shots at a report done on Fox News, which actually researched the story.

WASHINGTON -- A television ad attacking Representative Roy P. Dyson, D-Md.-1st, for taking "special interest" donations is being denounced -- not by Mr. Dyson but by his opponent, Republican Wayne T. Gilchrest, who says he wants the ad canceled.The ad, slated to run in Salisbury and on cable television throughout the district for a week starting today, is the handiwork of the Free State Republican Fund, a Maryland-based political action committee dedicated to electing Republican candidates.

To a condemned man it cannot make any great difference whether he is gassed or shot, hanged or electrocuted. The end is the same. But it does make a difference to the persons called upon to carry out a public execution. They want, for their own sakes, to get the work done in the quickest, surest, least unpleasant way possible. That, we believe, is why Warden Vernon L. Peppersack, of the Maryland Penitentiary, told legislators at Annapolis yesterday he preferred gas to hanging in the "miserable job" of putting men to death.

With the stunning -- and overwhelming -- defeat of state Sen. Frank Kelly and two other uncompromising Senate opponents of the right of a woman to choose to have an abortion, voters of Maryland spoke decisively yesterday in favor of a public policy which permits abortions generally within the framework of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision of Roe vs. Wade.That was the decision which established an unlimited right toabortion in early pregnancy. But the court as reconstituted by Ronald Reagan has now reneged on the commitment in Roe vs. Wade -- throwing the contentious issue squarely back into the political arena of the state legislatures.

The news from Chicago sent a jolt through 501 N. Calvert St., the home of this newspaper, its suburban offices and the communities across Maryland that it has served with distinction for 171 years. The owner of the Baltimore Sun Media Group and other Tribune Co. newspapers filed yesterday for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection to reorganize the company's heavy debt. Perhaps not since the days of the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904 has this newspaper felt so at risk from events outside the building.

It is an affront to the people of Maryland that David Duke -- an ex-Nazi and former Ku Klux Klan leader -- would believe he could muster significant support here for his presidential campaign. But it is even more of an affront to the state's newly empowered Republican Party that a man who has spent virtually all of his life on the racist fringes, decrying the decay of American culture through race mixing and what he calls "the Jewish question," would have the audacity to call himself one of their own -- and, worse, to expect any sort of support.

THE RANDAZZO and Dreyfus families would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many people of Maryland -- friends and strangers alike -- who cared enough to give their time and support in our period of grief. Your letters, cards and calls of sympathy, food, flowers and contributions to the Ronald Randazzo scholarship fund are greatly appreciated. There were so many people who contacted us, some without leaving their names or addresses, that we felt this letter would give us the opportunity to thank each and every well-wisher in a way you'd be sure to see.We would like to send a special "thank you" to all members of the armed forces, American Legion, Knights of Columbus, fire departments, county, state and harbor police who came to express their sorrow, and who provided for an honorable viewing, funeral and procession to the cemetery.

I and other retired veterans residing in Maryland will soon be seeking another state in which to live due to the disproportionate impact of the state's new tax legislation on retired veterans. Having served my country for more than 25 years, I find that the People's Republic of Maryland views me as wealthy merely because I have gainful post-retirement employment in addition to my previously-earned retirement income. I moved 16 times in my military career, so I'm well versed in voting with my feet.

Text of President-elect Barack Obama's remarks in Baltimore yesterday: Hello, Baltimore! Thank you, Baltimore! To Quincy Lucas, thank you for the wonderful introduction. To Governor O'Malley; to Baltimore's own speaker of the House, and partner with the soon-to-be Obama administration, Nancy Pelosi; to members of Maryland congressional delegation; to Maryland state and elected officials, to the best possible vice president-elect anybody could possibly hope for, Joe Biden; and to his even more wonderful wife, Jill Biden; to the people of Maryland and the people of America, thank you. We began this train trip in Philadelphia earlier today.

I wonder if the politicians and pundits who have lately taken to belittling community organizing really know much about this work, which has been at the center of some of the most important achievements of my life. I first started as a community organizer in 1994, when I was in college working on my associate's degree. For less than $20,000 a year, I walked through the communities of Baltimore every night to educate people about state and federal decisions that were being made that affected the quality of the water in their communities.

My fellow Marylanders, thank you for coming together today to mark a new day in Maryland. And thank you for the work we will do together to make our state stronger. Stronger, together, as one Maryland. One Maryland united by our belief in the dignity of every individual. One Maryland united by our responsibility to advance the common good. One Maryland united in our understanding that there is a unity to spirit and to matter and that what we chose to do in our own lifetimes does in fact matter.

Don't impose costs of care on business I was delighted to see the "Wal-Mart law" overturned for two reasons ("Court voids `Wal-Mart law,'" July 20). First, it was obviously doomed to fail because it conflicted with the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA. Second, health care is a benefit or perk. When you choose to apply for a job, you are told what your salary and benefits would be. If you don't like the mix, you can look somewhere else. Despite all of this, state Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael E. Busch wasted money getting this doomed legislation passed, and then overturning the governor's appropriate veto, as they wanted to force Wal-Mart to pay more for health care.
