Time for a brutal assessment regarding the state of immigration reform in America. Extreme partisans on both sides of the aisle - you will not like what you read over the next two minutes. Hopefully, the rest of you will chew on it for a bit. First, the GOP. The upside here is that a majority of Republicans seem to have at least some appreciation for the rule of law. In the context of immigration reform, this instinct plays out in a desire to enforce the law - just like every other civilized country in the world, especially Mexico.

DRIVE THROUGH the gates of the private educational facility known as the Glen Mills Schools, and you'll read a sign to your right paying tribute to one or more of the sports teams. The one today reads "Good Luck, Wrestling, Power Lifting, Indoor Track." There's a parking lot just to the left of the sign.

An article in the Sept. 14, 1961 edition of the Herald Argus and Baltimore Countian reported on a startling discovery made at a Catonsville dry cleaners. The finding of a .38 cal. copper coated lead bullet touched off quite a lot of excitement in this area last Thursday. It all started when Anthony Crisaufille, who operates a cleaning establishment in the 6300 block Baltimore National Pike, came across the bullet wrapped in a napkin in one of the seven pairs of pants that someone had sent to be cleaned.

I suppose it doesn't do any good to say that Tiger wasn't really a bad sort, although that's hardly a glowing testimonial now that he's no longer, um . . . with us. Look, it was an unfortunate accident. One minute he was swimming along merrily past the fake white seashell and miniature sunken schooner in his little tank, and the next minute he . . . wasn't.It happened that fast. In the blink of an eye, really.As to the circumstances surrounding Tiger's death, there's really no need to get into all that.

Despite Maryland's reputation for having the best schools in the nation, there's still plenty of room for improvement in how all 24 of its local school districts prepare their students for college and the work world. The school reform movement that has begun to turn around the prospects of students in Baltimore City holds lessons for every other jurisdiction in the state, and it's essential those lessons take hold if Maryland is to maintain its No. 1 ranking nationally for educational excellence.

When spuds were all greasers, they deserved to get kicked out of school. Deep-fat french fries and oily tater tots got the heave-ho from most cafeterias, as schools in Maryland and across the country tried to improve child nutrition. Potatoes that wanted to stay on the menu had to go to reform school, returning as low-fat, oven-baked "fries," baked potatoes or mashies made with skim milk. Now even those goody-two-shoes spuds face near-expulsion. Proposed federal nutritional requirements for the National School Lunch Program would allow school cafeterias to offer students no more than one cup of starchy vegetables per week.

Maryland education officials laid out a broad vision Tuesday for improving the state's schools and teaching corps, pledging to put the best educators in struggling classrooms while making them more accountable for performance and boosting emphasis on science, math and technoglogy courses. The promises came in a 257-page application that Maryland plans to submit to the U.S. Department of Education this year in a bid for a $250 million slice of $4 billion in federal school reform money known as Race to the Top funding.

Last week, the Maryland State Board of Education, at the behest of Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick, voted to turn the operation of four Baltimore high schools over to third-party entities beginning in fall 2007. This action is surprising and disturbing for all of us who are committed to the achievement of children in the city. The State Board of Education's precipitous decision to accept Ms. Grasmick's recommendations provided no opportunity for public comment from those who care most, are best informed and are most directly affected.

MAYOR Martin O'Malley is so intrigued by the education system in Chicago that he has scheduled a fact-finding trip to the Windy City this month. He'll find a school system that underwent considerable reform in the late 1990s under the direction of Paul G. Vallas, the city's former budget director appointed schools chief in 1995 by Mayor Richard M. Daley. In five years, until Vallas fell out of favor at City Hall and resigned, he eliminated deficits in the system's $3.5 billion budget, raised test scores (which then leveled)

Baltimore elected officials, activists and parents protested yesterday that a proposal to put a new panel in charge of the financially strapped city school system would give the state too much control over the education of the city's children. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has said he wants a greater role in overseeing the system's budget in exchange for a $42 million loan that would help the system deal with a crushing cash flow shortfall and a $58 million deficit. "Every time they give money to a system that is black or minority, they come in and they have to change everything.
