You stumble upon some extra money lying around the house - some spare change behind the sofa cushions or the equivalent. You might be pleased with your unexpected good (albeit only modestly so) fortune, but you probably wouldn't be looking to spend it immediately or think it significantly changes your family finances. Yet it appears that in Annapolis, the presence of about $229.7 million more in revenue at the final close-out of the last fiscal year, which ended June 30, may actually prompt that kind of thinking.

It's tempting to be optimistic about the level of revenue your business will generate, but the realities of your revenue stream may create an altogether different picture. Revenues are unpredictable, and taking steps to handle that stream is vital to your business success. Sales drive your quarterly budget, but revenue is the result of sales. Experts say small businesses are susceptible to losing between 2 percent and 20 percent of their revenue. So how do you minimize these losses? One critical area is tackling problems with delinquent payments.

House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. spoke recently at The Sun with Richard C. Gross, editor of the Opinion Commentary page, about the 2001 session of the legislature, which opens today. What's the major problem facing the legislature when the new session begins? The major problem is fiscal. ... [Gov. Parris N. Glendening] has very strong priorities in the fields of education, particularly higher education, and transportation and Smart Growth and public safety. The legislature has some priorities that are different than the governor's, and we are going to restructure some of those priorities and arrive at a conclusion.

WASHINGTON -- Stalled in their attempt to reach a new labor agreement, NFL owners yesterday tackled the growing disparity in shared revenues and came away with nothing more than a long-range plan. There was no compromise on a new formula to distribute more of the league's wealth, but there was a mandate from commissioner Paul Tagliabue. The 32 owners will meet once a month for the next five months with the goal of finding a compromise and an extension of the collective bargaining agreement by October.

IT'S A SHAME that the Annapolis city council never understood how municipal revenue authorities worked.If the eight-member council had, it would not have voted unanimously two weeks ago to relinquish its power to create revenue authorities.The council's rush to remove this power from the city of Annapolis' charter reveals a shocking level of ignorance about -- municipal financing. That is shameful for officials whose jobs are to determine policy for the city. It is also shocking that they made no effort to educate themselves before voting.

City grocers are asking officials to repeal a 2-cent tax on bottled beverages, saying that sales have dropped since the tariff was imposed four months ago. Rob Santoni, who lobbied against the bottle tax when it was considered by the City Council, said year-over-year sales at his East Baltimore store have fallen 3 percent since the tax was first collected in late July, and 600 fewer customers are entering each week. "They've taken away that competitive edge," Santoni said Thursday at a news conference in the beverage aisle of the store that bears his name.

A day at the zoo has been a family pastime for Baltimore parents and children for more than a century. And it's a tradition that seems set to continue now that the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore has won the official stamp of approval of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, which renewed its accreditation over the weekend after a yearlong delay during which the zoo struggled to repair neglected infrastructure, raise salaries and get on a firmer financial footing....

Imagine the woods and pastures you used to drive through, or play in, as a child. Are they overgrown now with housing divisions, shopping centers and office parks? Are they connected to the services residents need by highways, electric lines, water systems and sewer systems? You have had a glimpse at the tremendous change in infrastructure that comes as more areas of the country become developed. And in areas outside the United States, where prosperity is creating demand for modern sewage systems and turning bicycle riders into car users, the demand for infrastructure is intense.

THE DISCOMFORT caused by rocks and hard places has been oversold. A lot of elected officials who are supposed to be stuck between the two seem downright sanguine about Maryland's budget crisis. Maybe these politicians are too spineless to notice their stony reality. Looks like we need pointier rocks. Here's where things stand: Maryland is facing a long-term deficit. The state is committed to far more spending in future years than the current tax structure will finance. Two years of efforts by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and the General Assembly have failed to produce a solution, only fingers in the fiscal dike.

Sykesville cannot afford pass on WarfieldA small group has made the news stating that we "can't afford the annexation of the Warfield complex." Nothing could be further from the truth. The town of Sykesville cannot afford not to annex and develop the Warfield complex. Setting aside compelling reasons about improving the quality of life and sense community, hard economic analysis demands annexation. As you look around our town, you can see that all the planned subdivisions within the corporate limits are near build-out.

AOL, the company that introduced millions of people to the Internet, has tried to reinvent itself many times. The latest effort - like those before it - doesn't seem to be going very well. On Tuesday, Jeffrey L. Bewkes, president and chief executive of Time Warner Inc., AOL's parent company, acknowledged weakness in the business and said he was open to combining AOL with another company - "whatever configuration makes it the strongest and the most valuable." But he may have been soft-pedaling what seems to be an increasingly troublesome situation at AOL, which has bet its future on a new strategy of selling advertising across the Internet and spent more than $1 billion on related acquisitions.

The purchase of Skype Technologies SA by eBay Inc. yesterday makes strategic sense to analysts as more consumers embrace broadband services on the Internet. But the price tag - which could top $4 billion in cash and stock - seems spectacularly high for an Internet telephony service that mostly gives away its software. The software allows people to talk for free over the Internet. EBay is positioning itself as a commercial portal with a broad suite of services to attract users rather than sticking to its origins as an online auction site.
