WASHINGTON -- Less than two months after President Clinton's legal defense fund shut down, his allies unveiled a new fund yesterday that will employ more aggressive fund-raising tactics and accept much larger donations.The new fund will seek donations, where the previous one passively awaited contributions. Gifts to the original fund were limited to $1,000. The new limit will be ten times that level. But neither Clinton nor Hillary Rodham Clinton will be involved in fund raising.Ongoing legal battles over sexual misconduct charges, Whitewater, campaign fund raising and the Monica Lewinsky matter have left the Clintons with "enormous and ever-mounting legal expenses," now totaling $3.2 million, said the fund's founder, former Democratic Sen. David Pryor of Arkansas.

A lengthy hearing with close to two dozen speakers delayed a County Council vote last night on a bill to create Anne Arundel's first private agency to raise money for recreational projects.The proposal had been the subject of intensive lobbying, and passage of a bill in the Maryland General Assembly last night allowing the county to create a revenue authority to control money raised for recreation programs.But after more than two hours of council members' questioning county officials about the proposal, and testimony from opponents, it appeared possible that the members would introduce several amendments on the bill to create the Recreational Revenue Authority -- which would require a new public hearing and put off a vote.

The hottest Facebook trend right now is ice. The "Ice Bucket Challenge" became a fundraising bonanza in recent weeks for the ALS Association, which has garnered about 107,000 new donors - about 31/2 times the number of people who have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Those who research and treat the rare neurological disorder, better known as Lou Gehrig's disease, aren't even sure how many people knew what it was before the challenge. "This has been the biggest bang for our buck," Rita Sattler, an ALS researcher in the Robert Packard Center for ALS at Johns Hopkins, said about the money and awareness from the campaign.

Several months before his bat toss drew national headlines and a pending five-game suspension, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado wanted to find a way to give back to the city of Baltimore. The 21-year-old had attended a few charity events in the offseason and decided he wanted to hold one in his in-season home, and so on Thursday's day off, he held the first Manny Machado Celebrity BaseBowl bowling tournament to benefit the Baltimore City Recreation and Parks' Play Baseball summer program.  “I'm Miami 305 to the heart," said Machado, referencing the city's area code, "but Baltimore is my city, too. This is where I play, this is where I live half the year, so any way I can give back to this community here, it's a great way and opportunity to do it.” With a decision on his suspension appeal looming - he had his appeal hearing before Wednesday's game - Machado was eager to put the events of the past two weeks behind him. “It's been a long 24 hours,” Machado said.

Students at Broadneck High School assemble each year for a theater production, but this year's offering, "Les Miserables," carried a special meaning and mission. Director Emily Cory decided to use the performance as an opportunity to talk about and raise awareness of the subject of suicide, and to give students a chance to share their feelings and views on the subject. "Les Miserables" suited this intention, as one of the main characters commits suicide. Students staged performances at the Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park on Thursday, with proceeds benefiting the Youth Suicide Awareness Action Team, a group launched by the Anne Arundel County Partnership for Children, Youth and Families in 2008.

But for the first three months of next year, a handful of candidates for state office will catch a financial break without lifting a finger thanks to Maryland's prohibition against fundraising while the General Assembly is in session.
