Editor: I think most would agree Harford County Executive David Craig's decision to give a bonus to Harford County teachers is most appropriate and deserved.  What raises concern, however, is whether Mr. Craig has the authority to use public funds in such a manner? We as Harford county tax payers paid more tax than was necessary to fund the county's budget which resulted in a tax surplus. Can the county executive utilize that surplus of public funds to give bonuses to his county employees?

The Federal Reserve, the nation's central bank, was established by Congress to regulate the money supply - that is, the value of the dollar, credit and interest rates. And for years now, it has undertaken extraordinary and unprecedented actions to lift the economy out of the Great Recession and to boost recovery. Recent efforts have included keeping the key short-term interest rate at zero and engaging in "quantitative easing," an aggressive program of buying bonds and mortgage-backed securities and thereby pumping trillions of dollars in liquidity into the financial markets.

Of all the magical folkloric stories that used to be part of growing up, none has a more intense appeal than the saga of Robin Hood. Just thinking of it can make all those grown-up children who devoured the storybook retellings - and drank in the wonders of Douglas Fairbanks' 1922 spectacle or Errol Flynn's 1938 swashbuckler - feel refreshed and rejuvenated. The noble outlaw who fights for the commoners of England while King Richard the Lion-Hearted gets mired in the Crusades, Robin Hood embodies youthful idealism in action.

Silent films are never really silent. They speak through literal communication, as when frames of dialogue or plot detail pop up on the screen, and, of course, through even the slightest changes on an actor's face. They also speak through music, a key ingredient since the glory days of silent movies in the early 20th century. Scores were composed to complement each scene, underline each emotion. Back in the day, these scores were performed live — by orchestras in the grandest movie palaces, more commonly by an organist or pianist — as the films were shown.

"Robin Hood," at 8 tonight on WBFF-TV (Channel 45), is a real movie-movie.It has real stunts, real staging, great period detail, clever casting and lots of mud. In this telling of the adults' and children's classic, you need galoshes to survive Sherwood Forest. Being an outlaw in 12th century England required lots of mucking about.The film had been scheduled for release in movie theaters this summer. But because Kevin Costner is Robin Hood in another movie-movie scheduled to be released in real theaters this summer, this movie was sold to TV. Patrick Bergin plays this Robin Hood, and he's splendid.

THE TRAILERS did not mislead us. ''Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves'' is a thoroughly exciting film, one that is well-paced and well-staged. Its trouble is that it is really two films in one. Part of it is action with occasional comedy. The other part is almost camp.Alan Rickman is responsible for the camp. He plays the Sheriff of Nottingham, who takes over the country while King Richard is off to the Crusades.As the sheriff, Rickman is almost low comedy. His footage is exceptionally funny, but it doesn't necessarily go with the rest of the film.

Washington. -- President Clinton has provoked some outrageous cries of pain from the wealthiest precincts of America. Polite privileged people accuse him of playing ''Robin Hood,'' trying to take money from the rich and give it to the lazy poor. Crasser fat cats call him a ''fraud,'' saying he campaigned as a ''new Democrat'' and quickly reverted to the worst ''tax and spend'' president of the century.Those who are very rich and very conservative say he is a wild man who thinks foolishly that he can ''tax our way to prosperity.

In Oliver Stone's limp biopic W., George Bush is a washout as a student and a president, and brilliant as a frat boy. Other pledges during rush week cower as upperclassmen "torture" them. W., under duress, recites the names of everyone in the fraternity, nicknames included. Later, when Vice President Dick Cheney sells him on enhanced interrogation techniques, W. reasons that they sound no worse than what he went through at Yale. Although Stone has gone out of his way to say that he has treated Bush as a figure to be understood, not simply pilloried, the movie plays like a dunk-the-clown game at a carnival.

It was not a prince, but farm owner Martha Clark who rescued Snow White from her imprisonment in a dark, cold trailer at the defunct Enchanted Forest amusement park in Ellicott City this winter. Thought to be lost, sold or stolen long ago, the fairy tale figure -- made of wire, newspaper and papier-mache -- was discovered along with Robin Hood, an armor-clad villain, three fairies and some dwarf-size beds in a trailer tucked behind a stand of bamboo on a remote corner of the property. The figures will be on display for the first time in 12 years when Clark's Elioak Farm opens for the season tomorrow.

WASHINGTON - In a perfectly equitable world, would the government have passed legislation that would give older Americans a prescription drug care plan that will cost $400 billion over 10 years? To some economists, the prescription-drug benefit approved by Congress on Tuesday looks like Robin Hood in reverse. After all, there are millions of American workers who don't have any health insurance at all, yet the government has chosen to expand the Medicare program for older Americans. But while some economists on the left and right might wring their hands, younger workers don't seem to be complaining.

If there was a quintessential Robin Hood in the movies, it had to be Errol Flynn, who did ''The Adventures of Robin Hood'' in 1938 with Olivia De Havilland as Maid Marian and Basil Rathbone as the evil Sir Guy Gisbourne. Claude Rains was Prince John.Flynn, who died in 1959 at the age of 50, would never repeat the success he enjoyed as the bandit of Sherwood Forest. That was his peak movie, and the film, directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley and done in color, plays as well today as it did 53 years ago.The pace is fast, the action exciting, and the score, by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, is rich and appropriate.

Apparently nobody likes the new Robin Hood movie except the people. Critics have given it a thorough drubbing, but attendance seems to be holding up.That is appropriate. The Robin Hood story has been considered disreputable ever since reference to it first started showing up in the 14th century.The very earliest reference to ''rhymes of Robin Hood'' is in William Langland's poem, ''The Vision of Piers the Plowman," where a dying priest is condemned for not knowing the Our Father though he could recite the adventures of Robin Hood.
