Early voting has begun for the June 24 primary election. School is ending, summer vacations are starting and voter turnout is predicted to be low. As a busy mom, I am happy to have had the opportunity to vote early, and to vote for Wendy Royalty to represent District 1 on the Howard County Council. She is exactly the person we need to represent our community. Wendy is an engaged parent with two kids in the public schools and a lifelong history of community activism and she is ready to represent us, our families and our communities.

A French country chateau on a private island sounds like something from an episode of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," but it can be found as close by as the Gibson Island community in Anne Arundel County.

"This house is an absolute treasure," said Ellie Shorb, listing agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

This may be Charm City, but the PR outfit promoting Prince Edward's visit wasn't sure the Baltimore press corps had the polish to cover royalty. So IMRE took it upon itself to play Henry Higgins to newsroom Eliza Doolittles.

Fans of Internet radio: Stay tuned. In an eagerly awaited decision, the U.S. Copyright Office yesterday rejected a proposed royalty on online music that threatened to put many Internet broadcasters out of business. The copyright office now has until June 20 to make a final decision on how much Internet radio stations must pay recording artists and labels for playing their music. "I'm happy, but it's a mixed blessing," said Gregor Markowitz, who runs the online folk station Hober.com in Takoma Park.

Some mom-and-pop and public Internet radio stations are worried that new royalty fees could put them out of business or hinder the amount of music content they can afford to broadcast. A decision this month by the Copyright Royalty Board, a three-member panel of judges under the Library of Congress, would significantly increase what radio companies pay to air music over the Internet. The added fees, which are paid to both performers and their labels, could fundamentally change the burgeoning Internet radio industry.

Igen International Inc. said yesterday that its fiscal third-quarter loss narrowed as revenue grew and litigation costs were offset by a payment from its rival in a breach-of-contract suit, Roche Diagnostics. Based in Gaithersburg, the maker of diagnostic tests said it lost $9.2 million, or 48 cents per share, on revenue of $10.4 million. That compares with a loss of $16 millon, or $1.04 per share, on revenue of $8.5 million in the quarter that ended Dec. 31, 2000. The company said the 23 percent increase in quarterly revenue was due to increases in royalty income, product sales and contract revenue.

In his recent commentary on patent pools, David Balto takes issue with Blu-ray Disc patent pool One-Blue ( "Patent Pool abuse deserves scrutiny," Jan. 7). Mr. Balto suggests that One-Blue should have lowered its royalty rates as the retail prices of Blu-ray Disc players have come down. His assumptions are wrong. The idea that royalties should be calculated as a percentage of the price of products incorporating the patents is incorrect. In our modern economy, technology is an essential, autonomous input into our products, with its own value and price.

DONORA, Pa. — This downriver town has long endured the drooping narrative of Rust Belt endings, in which most of what is gets dwarfed by most of what used to be. But it has never been a place where people have trouble getting to the point. The little business at the edge of Donora is called Beer, Butts and Bets, so no one will mistake it for the regional office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. I wolfed a burger the other day at a breakfast and lunch place called, helpfully, Breakfast and Lunch.
