WASHINGTON -- President Bush said yesterday that he was appointing Gen. Colin L. Powell to a second two-year term as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, dismissing speculation that he was unhappy with his top military adviser, who initially advocated a go-slow policy in the Persian Gulf.Mr. Bush's reappointment of General Powell, while not surprising, also underscored the president's intention to keep Vice President Dan Quayle on the ticket in 1992.The new term would begin Oct. 1 and is subject to Senate confirmation.

Baltimore County school board President Earnest A. Hines said Tuesday that he is contesting a decision by Gov. Martin O'Malley to remove him from the board June 30, a year before he believes his term is ending. O'Malley's staff informed two Baltimore County school board members, including Hines, that they will not be reappointed to the board in July. "That was what I was informed of [Monday]. It was the first I heard of it," Hines said. Hines had believed, however, that even if he wasn't given another five-year term that he would remain on the board for the next year, a crucial time because school Superintendent Joe A. Hairston's contract expires in a year.

THE ROAD TO HELL is paved with good intentions. That trite homily must be applied to the misguided attempt of City Council President Lawrence A. Bell III to stop the reappointment of Housing Commissioner Daniel P. Henson III.There was good reason for the council not to confirm the reappointment of Mr. Henson. Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke ought to have provided the council a report on a multitude of problems within Mr. Henson's department, including several cases in which housing inspectors have been allowed to abuse their positions of authority.

DESPITE SOME COMPLAINTS, there did not seem to be sufficient reason to deny another 15-year term to two veterans of Baltimore City's Circuit Court, Judges Kenneth Lavon Johnson and John Carroll Byrnes. But whatever the discomfort for the two judges, reports that the city's judicial nominating commission was scrutinizing the performance of both men -- and that the possibility existed they could be denied a reappointment -- was a refreshing change from the days when citizens felt they had no way of holding judges accountable.

THE REAPPOINTMENT of Housing Commissioner Daniel P. Henson III should not be confirmed until the mayor investigates incidents in which certain housing officials have ignored the very laws the public entrusts them to uphold.Conflicts of interest are bound to arise when city policy allows these officials to own slum dwellings that their own department is supposed to inspect. But when they also ignore or quash citations to repair these properties, this is an abuse of power that demands an outside investigation by Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke.

William A. "Pete" Welch Jr., convicted last year of firing a handgun during a post-election dispute, has been reappointed to the Baltimore liquor board. Welch's reappointment was announced yesterday in the General Assembly as part of Gov. Parris N. Glendening's "green-bag" patronage appointments to various positions statewide. Sen. Clarence W. Blount, a powerful West Baltimore Democrat, sponsored Welch's reappointment. "He got into a little difficulty, but it didn't have anything to do with his job and the office he occupies," Blount said of Welch.

Kevin Millwood figured as much. His first 2 1/2 months in an Orioles uniform have been dominated by defensive gaffes, poor run support, some recent bad pitching and, of course, a lot of regrettable losses. So as he sat in the visiting clubhouse at Petco Park on Saturday night to watch the ninth inning and resisted the urge to join his teammates in the dugout, Millwood had one prevailing thought. "I definitely didn't think it was going to be easy, by any means," he said. Boy, was he right.

Maxwell, keeping the leader of the state's fifth largest school system in place four more years. Maxwell's new contact pays the superintendent $257,000 annually and calls for the board to contribute $20,000 each year to a retirement fund, an increase over his current $238,703 annual salary. The contact doesn't contain automatic salary increases, but gives the board the option of awarding a pay increase or bonus based upon performance.

The movement to alter or defeat a zoning bill intended to create a way to redevelop ailing Columbia village centers got an unexpected boost when the county Planning Board chairman revealed Monday night that he opposes the measure. The five-member board had split 2-2 on the issue March 23, passing the zoning bill on to the Howard County Council without a recommendation. David Grabowski, an Elkridge resident with a background in construction, had been out of town that night and Vice Chairman Gary Rosenbaum said he forgot to make a prearranged call to get the chairman's vote.

House Speaker Michael E. Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller had sent a letter to the board Monday urging it not to reappoint Grasmick.
