A Republican candidate for Baltimore County executive has asked to recount ballots after he lost the party's primary by a margin of only 18 votes. Tony Campbell, of Towson, made the request Thursday, according to county election director Katie Brown. Following the June 24 primary election, Campbell barely trailed candidate George Harman, of Reisterstown. "It is important for citizens in a democratic republic to know that their votes count," Campbell said in a statement. More than 20,000 votes were cast in the race, and because the margin was so slim, officials did not finish counting all ballots until Monday.

I was close to 40 when I discovered how love really feels. The object of my affection was a French bulldog, sold to us as Oliver and rechristened Grisby. His color was officially designated "fawn piebald," which meant he had very pretty markings of light brown and white, about half of each. His fur was short and soft, and his large, expressive ears were light brown on the back, dark pink inside and could seem almost translucent in the sunlight. His mouth was wide and when he trotted along with his pink tongue hanging out, it formed a permanent smile.

WASHINGTON - The presidential election is over and Sen. John Kerry has conceded defeat, but the wheels are nevertheless in motion in Ohio for a recount in the state that put President Bush over the top. The recount is being pressed even though the Kerry campaign has no hope or expectation of reversing the result. As of election night, the president carried Ohio by more than enough to avoid a mandatory retabulating of the votes. The tally gave Mr. Bush 51.1 percent to Mr. Kerry's 48.5 percent, far in excess of the one-quarter of 1 percent winning margin that under state law would require a recount.

The photos of author Robert Timberg in recent years aren't as horrifying as his memoir leads readers to expect. His eyes are direct and unflinching, and his mouth expresses wry amusement. He has the kind of wrinkles normally found on a 74-year-old man and a patch of skin across his nose that at a casual glance appears sunburned. There's nothing about Timberg's appearance now that could be described as freakish, nothing that would cause young children to howl in fright. It's taken Timberg more than 35 operations - including one without anesthesia - and 47 years to achieve that face, and he's still not entirely reconciled to it. There are moments even now when he looks in the mirror and is first startled, then furious.

WASHINGTON - Very late in the Florida election dispute, members of the state Supreme Court raised the notion of a total statewide recount as the proper solution to awarding the state's 25 electoral votes and hence the presidency and that it was probably too late to conduct it. The same point had been made by Circuit Court Judge N. Sanders Sauls in his sweeping rejection of Vice President Al Gore's bid to have up to 14,000 "undervotes" in Palm Beach and...

MEXICO CITY -- Rejecting the principal demand of the leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Mexico's highest electoral court ordered yesterday only a limited recount of votes in the disputed July 2 race for president. Outside the tribunal building, Lopez Obrador supporters called the judges "rats," "traitors" and "sell-outs." They vowed to expand protests that have paralyzed downtown Mexico City. And one party leader warned ominously that the tenor of the demonstrations might change.

NOW I WANT to hear Ellen R. Sauerbrey challenge Al Gore's right to a recount. I want to hear Ron Smith and Tom Marr, and all the radio talkers who make their living out of the back pocket of the Republican Party, make the distinction between Sauerbrey's right to a fair count and Gore's. The Florida mess isn't just about the democratic process, is it? It's about whose ox is being Gored. If your candidate came up short, you make the case for every person's right to have his vote counted.

MEXICO CITY -- Elections officials began recounting yesterday nearly 12,000 disputed ballots from the last month's presidential election, while supporters of second-place finisher Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador expanded their civil disobedience to a blockade of three bank buildings. The recount was ordered last week by a seven-judge tribunal that has the final say over election matters. A new president must be declared within a month or the results of the July 2 election are void. Lopez Obrador and his lawyers filed appeals to the Federal Electoral Tribunal claiming errors and fraud steered the election to Felipe Calderon, who won by less than a percentage point.

Sophocleus, the defeated Anne Arundel County executive candidate, asked yesterday for a recount of the ballots in 22 precincts.The precincts are in northern Anne Arundel's 2nd and 3rd Councilmanic districts -- including the Glen Burnie area and Pasadena -- where Mr. Sophocleus, a Democratic councilman from Linthicum, had been expected to do well on Election Day in his contest with Republican Robert R. Neall.

Democrat Theodore J. Sophocleus accepted defeat in the county executive race yesterday, more than two weeks after the voters elected Republican Robert R. Neall.In a press release, Sophocleus "sincerely" wished Neall "success in the four years ahead" and announced he would not legally challenge the Nov. 6 poll results. But he stopped short of using the traditional "C-word" in a backhanded greeting delivered to the county executive-elect through a reporter."I never give concessions," he said with a laugh yesterday.

George Harman won the Republican primary for Baltimore County executive last month by 20 votes, election officials said after a rare recount. Harman, an environmental consultant from Reisterstown, will face Democratic County Executive Kevin Kamenetz in the general election. "I'm going to focus on open, honest and ethical government," Harman said. GOP rival Tony Campbell requested the recount last week after trailing Harman by 18 votes in the June 24 primary election. Officials began counting about 28,000 ballots Tuesday morning and finished that evening.

The 2013 season has been something of a wild ride for Randy Edsall and the Maryland football team. The Terps won their first four games before falling victim to another string of major injuries that threatened to sink Edsall's third season as head coach, but bounced back to become bowl-eligible and guarantee his first winning season at Maryland. The Terps will end that season against Marshall in Friday's Military Bowl at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium before making the jump to the Big Ten Conference next year.

Baltimore police believe the Friday-night spray of bullets that killed a 16-month-old boy and wounded his father was a setup, according to court records released Tuesday. Police have charged Cornell Harvey, 26, and Eddie Tarver, 20, with first- and second-degree murder in the death of Carter Scott. The child's father, Rashaw Scott, 22, was critically injured in the attack. Father and son were sitting in a red Chevrolet parked at the Cherrydale Apartments in Cherry Hill, police said, when three men wearing latex gloves fired at least 16 shots into the vehicle.

OAKLAND, Calif. - A week ago, Manny Machado was about to head onto the field from the dugout at Camden Yards when someone yelled out to him, "Hey Manny. " It's not an unusual occurrence these days for the young third baseman, who is increasingly becoming the center of attention for fans and national media. But this one was different. It was Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson who wanted a few seconds of Machado's time. "He actually called me out, 'Hey Manny,' and he introduced himself," Machado said.

MEXICO CITY -- Defeated presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador urged supporters yesterday not to give up their fight for a full vote recount of the July 2 election and announced a series of street protests to keep up pressure on authorities. Among initial actions, Lopez Obrador said he would stage protests wherever President Vicente Fox appears in public and at a rally tonight in front of the Federal Electoral Tribunal, which voted Saturday to recount ballots in just over 9 percent of the country's polling places.

I spent my first morning of spring break sitting in traffic court fighting a speed camera ticket. Good times all around, especially when you consider the great problems the city has had with its speed camera system. More than 25 drivers gathered in Judge Kathleen Sweeney's courtroom, and a whole pack of people were quickly found not guilty. Theirs were one of several cars going through intersections at the same time, and Judge Sweeney said the cameras apparently can't tell exactly which car in a group is speeding.

The recruiting battle for the Harrison twins that ended with Maryland losing out to Kentucky made me think about Lefty Driesell and some of the tales he has told over the years about going after the likes of Tom McMillen, Moses Malone and Albert King. I figured that the old Lefthander, still kicking up a storm or two at age 80, would be a great source on the subject of recruiting. I also thought it would be great to hear Driesell's stories about how he got McMillen away from North Carolina and how Malone came close to becoming a Terp before turning pro. A year after Driesell arrived in College Park from Davidson, McMillen was the biggest high school star in the country in Mansfield, Pa.  He was on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
