In a homecoming of sorts, Jerry F. Barnes was sworn in yesterday as Carroll's state's attorney, officially replacing the five-term incumbent who gave him his first job in law and was his mentor and close friend.But for most of the lawyers who worked in the office under Thomas E. Hickman -- many of whom Mr. Barnes still refers to as friends -- the transfer of power looked more like an eviction.Since Carroll voters overwhelmingly placed Mr. Barnes in the prosecutor's office Nov. 8, seven of the 11 assistant state's attorneys have quit, been fired, or asked to resign, many of them in the past two weeks.

About five years ago, a judge approached lawyer Mary C. Reese and suggested that she apply for a vacant seat on the Howard District Court. She was somewhat taken aback, having never thought of herself as someone who should render judgment over people. "But then the more that I thought about it, I thought, you know, this is a job that the citizens of the state need and the citizens of the county need," said Reese, 44, who grew up in Ellicott City and still lives there. After twice unsuccessfully applying for the position, Reese has been tapped by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to become a Howard District Court judge to take the spot of Judge Louis A. Becker III, who was appointed last year to the Howard County Circuit Court.
