The emergency plan to provide state insurance to people stuck because of Maryland's faulty health exchange cleared another hurdle Wednesday as a committee voted to send it to the floor of the House of Delegates. The proposal to let people join the state's high-risk pool, known as the Maryland Health Insurance Program, passed the House Health and Government Operations Wednesday afternoon, the day after the Senate approved it. The program was set to expire after the Affordable Care Act took effect, but Gov. Martin O'Malley proposed extending it and providing retroactive coverage to people who tried to buy policies through the health exchange but were stymied by the online insurance marketplace's technical problems.

Driving north on one-way McCulloh Street through West Baltimore's Upton neighborhood, you'll find boarded-up homes and graffiti, but there is also alluring character here. Unusual pinnacles and other architectural touches adorn the three-story rowhouses and corner churches that seem to hover over the road. A block over is Druid Hill Avenue, a one-way street south, and much more of the same. "In the past, the plan has been to tear down and reconstruct. But we want to preserve the old Upton as much as possible," said Ernest Green of the Upton Planning Committee.

Marcy Leonard eyed the four thick New York strip steaks that rested atop the hot grill. Occasional flames jumped up as the juices from the meat dripped below. Her two assistants stood a few feet away, concentrating on chopping zucchini, squash and tomato for a roasted vegetable bruschetta. "Forty minutes, ladies!" Leonard yelled above the surrounding chatter and other sounds of the Howard County Fair. "We've got 40 minutes." Her teammates nodded and quickened their pace. At first glance, one wouldn't know that Leonard has no formal culinary training.

Heritage area supporters said the Maryland Department of Natural Resources will have the final say on whether to include the park in the plans, but opponents said that was just an excuse to avoid the issue.

WHEN THESE friends say they go way back, they mean way back - at least 69 years. They attended Glen Burnie High School together and graduated in 1937. Several of the 150 graduates who live in the area get together regularly to plan reunions for their class. To the best of their knowledge, they are the only class that has held reunions consistently since graduation. The most recent one was held May 9 at Snyder's Willow Grove restaurant. Twenty-four classmates attended the 65th reunion.
