Dr. Frances H. Trimble, a gynecologist who had been medical director of Planned Parenthood of Maryland for nearly three decades, died Friday of pneumonia at Roland Park Place. She was 94. "She took Planned Parenthood from a highly criticized small organization at the time and made it into a force," said Dr. J. Courtland Robinson, who succeeded Dr. Trimble as medical director. "It was about women's rights and contraception, and she gave it the medical leadership to make it go. And it grew into a large, large organization.

Schmoke, council members said they first heard about the plan in December, when it it surfaced in a newspaper.

According to state wildlife managers, there are more deer in Maryland now than at any other time in history, with population estimates ranging from 250,000 to more than 300,000 -- and unless a more effective deer management plan is implemented soon, those numbers likely will increase dramatically.The Department of Natural Resources completed a series of public meetings last week in which possible revisions to the management plan were discussed and public suggestions for improvements were invited.

IT IS WITH MUCH reluctance that we quarrel with animal rights advocates. Often they play a crucial role in blowing the whistle on heartbreaking cruelty visited on all manner of creatures by thoughtless or venal humans. But in the case of Maryland's mute swans, they are off-base. Their crusade to block the state from killing some swans as part of a broader program to control their rapidly expanding population is based on a narrow, sentimental perspective in denial of obvious facts. U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who is hearing arguments in the case, should end the delaying tactics and let state officials get about their work.

I immigrated to the United States more than 50 years ago. I served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. I pay taxes, and I love this country. It saddens me that there are so many people without a job; although I am not an economist, I would like to say something about the economy as an ordinary citizen. Corporate America is making record profits; they have transferred their business to China, India, Brazil and other developing countries where profits are higher since workers in those places have lower salaries than our workers here.

When Christopher F. D'Elia was growing up 40-some years ago in the Washington, D.C., area, the nation's capital was like "a small Southern town," he recalls.Where he lived, in Arlington, Va., was at the limits of urban development. "It was country beyond there," he says. The world itself seemed much smaller then, too.How things have changed.Washington is now a sprawling megalopolis, with suburban tentacles reaching deep into the former farmland and forests of Maryland and Virginia. The number of people living in the region, which drains into the Chesapeake Bay, has grown more than 50 percent in the past four decades.

Defining LiberalFrom radio, to The Sun, to the television networks, we are constantly being exposed to the terms liberal and conservative. It seems to me that if we are to continue using these terms in our discussions of what America should be, we need to agree on their definitions.Webster's Dictionary defines liberalism as that political system which promotes "the autonomy of the individual" and "protects civil liberties."Notice, liberalism is a system involving definite economic and social goals.

CAIRO, Egypt -- They are the naysayers, the lonely jousters of conventional wisdom, and they came to the world conference on population problems to say there is no population problem.James A. Miller of Frederick, Md., is an old soldier in their ranks. This weekend, he stood in the hallways of the conference center, touting his newspaper that warned: "At stake: the future of humanity.""Amazing as it may seem, the entire population of the world can be housed in the U.S. state of Texas," the newspaper proclaimed.

The sound of caterwauling drifts eerily through my neighborhood these days, carried on the same spring breezes that scatter pollen and flower petals on the sidewalks.In March, caterwauling means cats on the streets, heeding the call of an instinct they do not question. The urge to mate is primal, and overpowering, pulling tomcats from their homes, across busy roadways and into fights.In May, caterwauling gives way to gentle mewing, as the kittens burst into this world, soft, blind and helpless.

Maryland's new deer management plan, which divided the state into four hunting regions with independent bag limits for bow, muzzleloader and firearms hunters, is intended to "tailor" the deer kill according to the need for population control.In most parts of the state, the aim is toward thinning the number of breeders by emphasizing the hunt for antlerless deer. In far Western Maryland, however, the management goal is to maintain the deer population near present levels and antlered/antlerless ratio.
