WASHINGTON - During Bernadine Healy's tumultuous final six months as president of the American Red Cross, the nonprofit agency awarded her $1.9 million. As a result, Healy's replacement, former Rear Adm. Marsha Evans, and the agency's board have launched separate reviews of the way the Red Cross compensates its senior employees. Healy wept in public frustration when she was forced out of the top American Red Cross job in the tense and confusing aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the fall of 2001.

Like many of his teammates in Towson's 27-24 stunning loss to Maine in the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams Saturday night, Sam Hurwitz had an unsteady performance. The junior kicker converted all three of his extra-point attempts and easily nailed a 25-yard field goal in the first quarter. But he also had a 45-yard try that went outside the right upright in the fourth quarter that preceded the Black Bears' eventual game-winning touchdown. Hurwitz, who has connected on four of six field goals this season, converted a career-long 39-yard field goal in the Tigers' 31-20 victory over North Carolina Central on Sept.

Eight people have been charged as a result of recent police raids on two Columbia apartments in what Howard County police said is a continuation of its large-scale drug investigation, Operation Clean Sweep. The arrests came more than three months after the end of the 18-month investigation, which used wiretaps, body wires, videotaping and undercover drug buys. Thirty-seven people have been arrested. After police went public with Operation Clean Sweep in February, detectives knew there would be a "next step" - breaking up drug operations that moved their business indoors, said Howard police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn.

When it comes to policing, in some places less is better than more. Fewer police departments can result in better protection and better service. In places like Ferguson, Mo., hostility toward the police would be far less likely if the parent St. Louis County had fewer police departments - or even better, only one. County governments have evolved over time by a variety of ways, with a tendency toward more centralization. The particular form local government takes matters a great deal.

University System of Maryland schools have had mixed success in improving the graduation rates of minority and low-income students, according to an annual progress report released this week. Some colleges, including the University of Maryland, College Park and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, have been able to boost minority and low-income achievement. But at other schools, the gaps between those students and middle-class whites have increased in recent years. "I was shocked to see the numbers," said Frank M. Reid III, a university system regent and pastor of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Baltimore.

Baltimore city officials belatedly disclosed Friday that sewage overflows topped 12 million gallons during last week's downpour, four times what had previously been acknowledged. It was the most untreated waste reported spilled in the city in a single day since 2006, according to state records. Top managers of the city Department of Public Works just learned Friday of three previously unreported overflows during the Aug. 12 rainstorm, according to department spokesman Jeffrey Raymond.

Erin Sharp arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport a little less than two hours before her 9:40 a.m. flight to San Diego on Sunday, timed so that her 11-month-old son would zonk out on the plane and they would arrive home with the afternoon to spare. Instead, Sharp wouldn't leave the Anne Arundel County airport for another nine hours, she said, after an enormous ticketing line for Southwest Airlines caused her and other passengers to miss their flights and the airline couldn't immediately get her onto another.

Letter writer Mark Campbell recently referred to improper Earned Income Tax Credit payments as "fraud" ( "Want to expand the EITC? Cut fraud first," July 30). While there's no arguing that the number of such payments is alarmingly high, most are made in genuine error rather than as a result of deliberate fraud. The EITC phases in and out at varying income levels, and also varies depending on marital status and number of children as well. That can cause confusion about who is eligible and how big a credit they can claim.

The problem isn't the 57,000 or so illegal immigrant children who have crossed the border recently, or the 12 million illegal immigrants who are already here. The problem is the billion or two behind them who are thinking about heading this way. Once that billion or two come to believe that we'll let them stay they'll be on their way. When that happens, America will cease to be the place where Americans live. Instead, we'll have no say in who sets up shop here. The U.S. as a meaningful entity will cease to exist.

Racial disparities in the restaurant labor force of BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport are hurting African-American employees and contributing to poverty in Baltimore, according to a study released Monday by the national labor organization Unite Here. Officials with AirMall USA, which subcontracts concessions operations at the airport for the Maryland Aviation Administration, rebutted the findings. The study, which Unite Here produced in collaboration with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, found African-American employees disproportionately work in low-wage positions at fast-food chains and in the back of airport restaurants as dishwashers and cooks, while white employees tend to fill higher-paying, front-of-house jobs as bartenders and servers.

The Social Security Administration is overhauling its internal anti-discrimination program after federal auditors found that the agency failed to establish an adequate system for handling employee claims. Auditors from the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reported in May that the Woodlawn-based agency had failed to follow regulations on addressing workplace discrimination complaints, had manipulated data to boost case completion rates and might have allowed managers to interfere in what were supposed to be impartial investigations.

Primary races settled this week reflect the underlying divide in the Maryland's minority party, pitting Republicans who stand on conservative principle against those who are willing to be more pragmatic as the underdogs in a blue state. In some cases the ideologues triumphed; in others the moderates squeaked out a victory. It's a push-and-pull that echoes fights dogging the Republican Party nationally. In Frederick, a conservative delegate toppled the state Senate minority leader by accusing him of compromising with Democrats.
