Congratulations to Steve Almond for speaking the culturally unspeakable by suggesting that we should question the fundamental nature of the game of football ( "Fans are part of the football problem," Sept. 24). In high school in the '60s, I played and enjoyed the game at an all-boys school where the varsity players were explicitly touted as "men of character" because they showed how "tough" they were. I kept my resentment of that to myself at the time but since I have come to see that my enjoyment and subsequent chagrin stemmed from the realization that football really brought out the worst in me - the adrenaline rush of permissible aggressive violence in front of a crowd.

Standing inside Vance Shoe Repair off Route 40 in Ellicott City, it's easy to see it is not your ordinary small business. While the overflowing shop space - evidence of the business' success - is what you notice first, it's the friendly environment, cultivated by owner Paul McMickings, that stays with you. McMickings died of cancer June 30 at age 63. "Paul was here to help," said regular customer Maggie Surette. "Paul didn't charge what other shoe shops charge. He would take in anything and would help anybody," Surette said.

A Carroll County commissioner has drafted legislation that would make English the county's official language — and if it passes, Carroll would become the third Maryland locality to enact such legislation this year, following Frederick and Queen Anne's counties. Commissioner Haven Shoemaker, who represents the Hampstead area, said he will ask his colleagues to introduce the proposal at the board's session Thursday. If they are amenable, a public hearing would be scheduled before a vote.

Almost two years have passed since the people of Carroll County's District 2 elected me to the office of County Commissioner. As an elected official, I believe it is my responsibility to keep the people I represent informed about what I've done - and what I plan to do to make their lives better. Therefore, I'd like to give an update on the decisions I've made through the first two years of my term as commissioner. Since taking office, I've voted for a multitude of policies and plans, but there are six key decisions that exemplify the conservative principles I campaigned on. First, I led the charge to place a limit of two terms on all County Commissioners from this point forward, ensuring that this office will never again be used to pass legislation that abuses public funds for the sole purpose of padding a re-election effort.

A recent meeting of the Board of County Commissioners — in which members discussed changing the sprinkler system requirements for residences — revealed a refreshing, enlightening and, frankly, astonishing statement from one of the commissioners. Haven Shoemaker was quoted as declaring the discussion "silly," and it concerned him that the current board's path — to streamline the process to make it easier for residential developers to build houses — was not why he was elected.
