We take the Baltimore County Police Department at its word that its officers were just trying to give some helpful tips to a pair of Dundalk activists about the rules of decorum at County Council work sessions and not trying to intimidate them into silence about their opposition to County Executive Kevin Kamenetz's proposed redevelopment of a government building in the community. Even if the meeting earlier this month between three officers and a pair of community activists really was intended as a "polite and friendly way to discuss concerns about protocols," as the police department's spokeswoman put it, the whole business still stinks, which Chief Jim Johnson correctly concluded after reviewing the incident.

A divided U.S. Supreme Court upheld Monday the right of local governments to offer sectarian prayers at public meetings, a decision that clears the way for the Carroll County board of commissioners to restore their Christian observances. In a 5-4 decision, the high court held that the town of Greece in upstate New York did not violate the Constitution's ban on government endorsement of religion when the town board offered prayers before its monthly meetings - even though the prayers often invoked the name of Jesus and focused on other inherently Christian themes.

The Sun correctly criticized the Carroll County Board of Commissioners for defying a federal court order by opening a recent meeting with a sectarian prayer ( "A difficult balance," March 27). But one point was faulty: The editorial expressed concern that the commissioners' freedom of speech was threatened by restrictions on government prayer. Such concern is misplaced because the court made it clear that the start of a government meeting is not an open forum for free speech.

About 60 people attended the first public meeting on the county's master plan update last week, a figure planners found encouraging but local activists found wanting. "We need more turnout. The citizens have to be invested in their community or it just doesn't work," said Charles Day, a farmer who worked on the Dublin-Darlington Community Council during the last master plan review, in 1996. Residents who don't get involved, then don't like the results of the review have little room for complaint, he said.
