A Colorado woman who won a $1.2 million home in Edgewater in a $50-a-ticket raffle last January has sold the property to a local church at a bargain-basement price. "Hooray, finally!" said Karen McHale, 47, who lives in a home she built with her husband in the mountains west of Denver and never intended to move to the Mid-Atlantic. "I tell you, that was a giant rock around my neck." McHale said she bought two raffle tickets last year as a contribution to the charity that was co-sponsoring the contest, which came about when a mortgage broker teamed up with the Annapolis-based We Care and Friends, which helps at-risk youths, to sell his home.

A raffle of a $1.6 million house in Baltimore County sounded good to some people - enough to sell 12,000 tickets at $100 a pop. But organizers needed about 20,000 ticket sales to make it worthwhile, and they were hoping for 35,000. So: no raffle. Reader Steve Scarborough told me he got a refund for the two tickets he bought, but "they kept $5.96 per ticket." "I suppose that could add up to a tidy profit for them even if they only sold half of the 35,000 tickets," he wrote in an e-mail.

Dr. C. Ronald Franks has shown aggressiveness and imagination in his campaign for the Senate Republican nomination, but in raffling off a Colt AR-15 H-BAR assault weapon to raise campaign funds, he showed insensitivity and irresponsibility bordering on the criminal. The crime? Possibly aiding and abetting some criminal's acquisition of a deadly weapon that Congress has voted to ban.Dr. Franks says he would not agree to awarding the prize to a criminal or ex-criminal, but, apparently, he has taken no steps to make sure the anonymous winner is the sort of person who should have an AR-15 (whatever kind of person that is)

Douglas Ordway of Charlotte, N.C., had the winning ticket last night in the Howard County Democratic Party's handgun trigger-lock raffle. Ordway's ticket was plucked from among 1,000 $1 tickets that were sold as part of a partisan effort to draw a contrast to Carroll County Republicans, who raffled a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun in February. The raffle for the safety device came after three hours of schmoozing and speeches at the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, an annual fund-raising event for the Democratic Party.
