The state Board of Regents will delay searching for a new president of Coppin State University until 2015 and instead announced Tuesday a two-year contract for the interim leader, who was brought out of retirement to overhaul the ailing Baltimore institution. Officials said the move to "official" president gives Mortimer H. Neufville the teeth to make the sweeping changes necessary to improve academic and administrative operations at the historically black college, which has the lowest graduation rate in the state, about 15 percent.

More than two dozen Johns Hopkins University students and staff painted the corridors of the 29th Street Community Center on Saturday as part of the school's annual President's Day of Service. Among them was the university's president himself. Crouching on his knees with brush in hand to cover a few hard-to-reach spots on the walls outside the center's main office, Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels modeled roles he wanted students to play when he launched the community service day in 2009.

After reading Dan Rodricks' column ( "Why prevent immigrants from being president", Aug. 17) I wondered if he eavesdropped on my family's dinner conversation last weekend. My husband and I have four children - three biological and one adopted. "What do you want to be when you grow up?" is a favorite conversation starter in our house. The answers have ranged from a Broadway star to a priest to NBA player to trash truck driver to writer. Sunday night my youngest son, in all innocence declared, "I'm going to be president!"

I notice how positive articles about Sarah Palin seem to really get her critics stirring ("Palin for president? Very funny," Nov. 28). Not only does the comments section seem to be overwhelmed, but letters to the editor surface as well. As a Palin supporter who hopes she runs - and wins - in 2016, let me respond to the usual snark that surfaces. She's not qualified. Compared to whom? Barack Obama was a junior senator from Illinois before running for president. In Alaska, Ms. Palin accomplished everything she set out to do in two-thirds of the time.

For those of us born immediately after World War II, there is a distinct possibility many of us won't live to see another Republican elected president. As we drift into senescence, George W. Bush's tenure in office may be fondly recalled as a time "when we used to elect people called Republicans to the White House. " The reason is simple. Contrary to the values on which the Republican Party was founded, today's GOP has become the party of exclusion, espousing fear and ignorance. Will Hispanics and African-Americans soon forget?

The head of the Baltimore County school administrators union said the majority of misconduct cases against administrators can "be resolved more expeditiously. " Speaking at the county school board meeting on Tuesday night, William Lawrence, executive director of the Council of Administrative and Supervisory Employees, suggested that the union and the county work together on resolving cases more quickly. Currently, administrators and teachers can spend weeks and months investigating a teacher for misconduct, sometimes while they sit in a warehouse.

The Baltimore City Council on Monday unanimously approved Federal Hill Neighborhood Association President Eric T.

Costello, 33, a New York native, is an auditor in the U.S. Government Accountability Office. After the council vote, he was sworn in by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and took his seat representing the 11th District, which includes Federal Hill, Bolton Hill and downtown.

In the wake of President Barack Obama's declaration of war on ISIS and the fact that several dozen ISIS members with American citizenship are believed to have already re-entered the country, along with the near simultaneous multiple failures of the Secret Service to properly protect Mr. Obama, I believe it is time to do with the White House what was done during World War II. During that era the roof of the White House was protected by both sandbagged machine...

Columnist Jules Witcover claims that "many fellow Democrats" were of the opinion that President Barack Obama lacked a spine but that his recent call to the international community "to step up to the challenge of global terrorism" now suggests he has acquired one ( "U.N. speech may indicate a tougher Obama," Sept. 29). In my opinion President Obama has always had a spine. For example, while still a senator he condemned the madness of the Bush administration's wars. Later he called for closing down the Guantanamo concentration camp.

Bus drivers, dispatchers and other public transit employees in Baltimore will vote for a new local union president next week, following the ouster of their elected president by national union officials. Union officials said Janice Murray was removed as president of the 2,600-member Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1300 because she owed the organization $200 in travel expenses from six years ago. Murray's victory was appealed by a rival candidate, the local's former president, who said unpaid travel expenses invalidated her candidacy.

As I view the constant protesting by residents of Ferguson, Mo., nearly two months after a police officer fatally shot an unarmed teenager, I know that it's only a matter of time before the streets of Baltimore are filled with the same sustained clarion call for justice that has rocked the once inconspicuous Midwestern city. On the surface, the city of Baltimore and Ferguson are worlds apart. With a population nearly 30 times larger than Ferguson, Baltimore is a major American city and cultural hub. From Francis Scott Key to H.L. Mencken to Thurgood Marshall, Baltimore has produced more than its fair share of American icons.

Secret Service director Julia A. Pierson did herself no favors this week when she appeared before a House subcommittee to explain why her agency so badly bungled the job of protecting the president. There's no excuse for the repeated lapses in security that put the president's life at risk, nor for the agency's attempts to hide the seriousness of the incidents afterward. Ms. Pierson finally acknowledged that today when she submitted her resignation as head of the agency. In the days leading up to her departure, Ms. Pierson had promised a thorough internal investigation of the matter, but that's not good enough.
