Once again our elected leaders in Baltimore have shown that you don't have to be the brightest bulb in the room to have enough common sense to appoint a search committee to find a new city police chief. Two or three of the panel members now lead their own police forces, so they know what best practices are and what it takes to lead the fight against crime. Joe Heming

A lesson that has been learned during my 80-plus years of reading The Sun is that berating an editorial is more therapeutic than productive. Nevertheless, it is incomprehensible why even the revolting title of the "Draft Freeman" (Aug. 22) editorial was published inasmuch as the body of the piece failed to provide any logical basis for your view that you, or anyone else, should have the right to condemn or override a decision made by Freeman A. Hrabowski III not to become chancellor of the University System of Maryland.

University of Maryland Baltimore County President Freeman A. Hrabowski III says he is not interested in becoming chancellor of the University System of Maryland. That is a shame. He is extraordinarily qualified for the job, and if he could do for the entire system what he has done for UMBC, Maryland would benefit enormously. He has spearheaded innovative new approaches to teaching and learning, particularly in math and the sciences, and he has fostered the kind of linkages between students and employers that Maryland needs to grow its innovation economy.

After more than 50 years in one room, the town has outgrown Town Hall.Two large desks, several file cabinets and a long conference table fill the 12-by-15-foot former living room of a house at 1 W. Broadway. Add office equipment, and there's barely enough space for residents who have been attending council sessions in increasing numbers lately.Steps at the entrance, a narrow doorway and the lack of a bathroom make it inaccessible for disabled residents.And it's noisy."If people are talking in the office and you are on the phone, you can't hear anything," said Town Clerk Kathleen D. Kreimer.

The process to select a new chief executive to run Baltimore's beleaguered convention and visitors bureau is seriously flawed, heightening the odds that the wrong person will be hired for the job, national experts say. To begin with, those experts say, the atmosphere has been soiled by the decision to have its ousted top executive, Carroll R. Armstrong, help choose his successor. Even more troubling, the search for a top executive has been launched without the search committee knowing the details of what is believed to be a critical report on the organization's day-to-day operations.

Incoming University of Maryland president Wallace D. Loh said Wednesday that he expects to play a significant role in selecting the school's next athletic director, even though his appointment is not effective until Nov. 1. Loh's role might be unofficial -- for example, meeting with the athletic director finalists before Nov. 1 and offering his blessing to the top choice. "These are the kinds of searches that one has to move very quickly. One can't say, 'Well, we'll wait until the new president arrives,'" Loh said in a question-and-answer session with media members the day after his appointment was announced.

His title will be dean, rather than the previous, longtime designation of director, in keeping with JHU's practice with its other academic divisions.

The Orioles apparently are inching closer to the selection and hiring of a new head of baseball operations as the clock begins to tick on what could be a very important offseason for the struggling franchise. Toronto Blue Jays executive Tony LaCava was back in Baltimore on Monday to meet with owner Peter Angelos, according to team sources, but there has been no indication the club is about to announce a replacement for former president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail, and club officials are not ruling out the possibility that more candidates will be interviewed later this week.

But Leach was interviewed extensively. University president Wallace Loh met with him apart from the search committee.

WASHINGTON — Quarterback Danny O'Brien — the Atlantic Coast Conference rookie of the year — said Wednesday that he will remain at Maryland despite the ouster of head coach Ralph Friedgen. O'Brien, a redshirt freshman, was close not only with Friedgen but with offensive coordinator James Franklin, who left last week to become the head coach at Vanderbilt. There was speculation that O'Brien might wait to see who Maryland hired next before committing to returning. "I'm going to stay," O'Brien said.
