At their Sept. 19 meeting, Baltimore County school board members voted to draft a resolution encouraging state and county officials to fund air conditioning in all schools that can support it. The resolution was on the agenda for last night's meeting, but it was postponed. The board still plans to vote on the resolution, President Lawrence Schmidt said, but members are still working with the board's lawyer to draft it. Also, some members missed the last meeting's discussion when the meeting was rescheduled because of bad weather.

(Dec. 20) Rep. Donna F. Edwards offered a resolution on the House floor Tuesday that would disapprove of Florida GOP Rep. Allen West for telling reporters recently that Nazi propagandists would be proud of the Democrats' “propaganda machine.” Reading from the resolution, the Prince George's County Democrat called comments by the Tea Party conservative “offensive” and said they diminish the memory of Jews killed in the Holocaust. The House voted 231-188 to table the resolution.

To put it mildly, Baltimore is an interesting choice for the potentially historic owners meeting this week that is expected to determine who will be baseball's next commissioner. Representatives of the 30 clubs will come together Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency for two days of meetings and politicking that could shape Major League Baseball for the next generation. That's great. We love it when important things happen in Baltimore, but we'd probably love it a lot more if the election of baseball's new fearless leader came along with an announcement that the 2016 All-Star Game will be at Camden Yards or some kind of resolution to the long-simmering television rights dispute between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals.

The top leaders of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee are seeking a resolution from the state party directing its representatives to oppose a new term for national party Chairman Reince Priebus in the aftermath of the GOP's dismal showing in the Nov. 6 election. John Fiastro Jr., the newly elected county chairman, said the party executive committee decided Monday night to seek such a resolution at the party's state convention at Turf Valley in Howard County on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. Fiastro said there was a sentiment among county party leaders that the national GOP needs new leadership in the wake of its election setbacks, which included President Barack Obama's win over Mitt Romney and the loss of seats in the U.S. Senate.

After reading the article in Tuesday's newspaper, "Stop reading this and pay attention to the road" (Dec. 27) I am more determined to take heed to sound advice regarding the mobile devices while driving, and others should, too. A law has been enforced, but it's not enough to deter harmful accidents for both the driver and other drivers on the road. I would suggest that all drivers start using common sense and consider life the most precious commodity given by God. Simple advice to all drivers is "Put all distracting devices down until you reach your destination.

The Anne Arundel County Council unanimously passed a resolution honoring the late Nelson Mandela on Monday night, after Councilman Daryl Jones made a personal appeal. Jones recalled his time as a college student in the 1980s, when he lobbied the University of Maryland to cut its financial ties with companies doing business in South Africa, which operated under apartheid at the time. Around the same time, Jones said, then-Mayor Richard Hillman of Annapolis was arrested during anti-apartheid demonstrations in Washington.

PRESIDENT Bush has taken a calculated political risk in calling on the U.N. General Assembly to repeal its notorious 1975 anti-Israel resolution describing Zionism as "a form of racism and racial discrimination." The risk is twofold.One involves the chance that a resolution of repeal, though it seems sure to pass, might do so by such a small margin as to leave in doubt whether the United Nations as an organization had in fact acted to erase an infamous paragraph in its history. The other element of risk involves timing.

Whatever roster moves the Orioles make this week or next will be independent of what happens with third baseman Manny Machado, since it looks like his situation won't be resolved soon. Machado is appealing the five-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball this week after he threw his bat in Sunday's loss to the Oakland Athletics. The Orioles were considering several roster potential moves in case Machado dropped his appeal or his hearing was held during the upcoming road trip to Tampa Bay and New York.

Rarely does Congress exclusively hold the key to America's foreign relations with a critical ally. But now, with Turkey, the only Muslim country allied with the United States in NATO, the future of Turkish-American relations is solely in the hands of Congress. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has pledged to bring before the House next month a congressional resolution formally recognizing as organized genocide the mass killings of Armenians from 1915 to 1923 in Turkey's predecessor state of the Ottoman Empire.

To hear some American hawks talk about President Obama's reaction to the Russian move into Crimea, you'd think he's grabbed Neville Chamberlain's umbrella of appeasement and rushed off to Munich. But Mr. Obama's response to Russian President Vladimir Putin's power move in Crimea can hardly be compared to the British prime minister's fateful surrender to Adolf Hitler's blatant theft of the Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia in 1938. Chamberlain was an open advocate of appeasement before it became a dirty word.

The county has 679 police officers, so the new hires would amount to 34 more officers per year.
