The mishandling of thousands of documents at the Baltimore office of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs delayed payments in excess of $25,000 to some veterans, according to new details made public Monday by the department's inspector general. Agency auditors reported widespread problems with records management in Baltimore in a three-page memo released in advance of a congressional hearing Monday evening. In one incident, they said, an employee was seen last month carrying veterans' claims folders in suitcases back to the office from her home.

Q: There must be ways to encourage children to pick up their rooms. Our two sons live in a constant disaster area. The bedroom they share is small, but it would work if they'd just put things where they belong.P.S. They are 11 and 9. Is there any chance they'll outgrow this phase?A: Having lived through two who could have been the prototypes of your sons, I can only suggest that neatniks are born, not made. However, there is hope, I hasten to add: You must encourage tidiness at every opportunity (you could compliment them on keeping a neat ceiling, for example)

High ceilings make modestly sized rooms look larger and more appealing. However, the scale and lack of dimension of such rooms make built-in storage systems very difficult to place without overwhelming the space.For this family room, interior designer and space planner Eileen Brown came up with a solution for storage in the form of a simple, fireplace-framing storage system built by Village Woodworks of Finksburg. While one side of the cabinetry houses an entertainment system, the other stores liquor and linens, and includes lighted display shelves.

It has not been an especially good year for the 70-horsepower outboard that has occupied the transom of the 16-foot boat that is set under a tarp at the end of the driveway.The starter went bad and was rebuilt. The in-line fuel bulb developed a minuscule leak and was replaced. The spark plugs, FTC seems, have been replaced more often than in past years. But, then, it has been in saltwater and freshwater use for 10 years and one has to expect that parts will go bad.All in all, 10 years is not a bad lifetime for a chunk of milled aluminum -- and with basic storage preparation, I fully expect that next spring, with new fuel in the tank and a fresh charge on the battery, the three-cylinder Mercury again will rumble to life and run reliably through another season.

Works of art can be said to exist fully only when they are put on view. It's the encounter with the viewer that makes art, well, art. And there are certain, straightforward ways we expect those encounters to occur when entering a museum - paintings hanging on a wall, sculptures resting on pedestals, that sort of thing. Photographer Gregory Vershbow toys with those expectations in an intriguing exhibit at the Walters Art Museum , "Site Unseen. " Contemporary exhibits are not a Walters specialty; this one fits beautifully into the venue.

The new electronic storage retrieval system will alleviate the need for maintain paper or "hard" copies of approved plans and will assist DILP inspectors in accessing documents while in the field on assignments.

As a parent of a child who will be entering the Maryland public school system next year, I was troubled to learn that some Maryland public schools are utilizing a program called PalmSecure to scan the palm and vein patterns of our children to pay for school lunches. School officials claim that this system is needed because a palm scan takes less time than asking a child to scan a meal card or utilize old-fashioned cash and coins. While school officials allege that the palm and vein images of our children are not stored, once data are created electronically they are saved in some type of identifiable format that may be utilized in the future for purposes that were never initially imagined.

In the garden with Mr. Bee, Lou Boulmetis: Storing the harvest Much of our surplus garden produce is given away to family and friends. But plenty is also stored for meals that will be prepared during the upcoming winter — because I really don't want to wait until next summer to savor the flavor of my favorite varieties. Fortunately, many fruits and vegetables can be kept reasonably fresh for months, without going to the trouble of canning or drying. At our place, for instance, onions and garlic have been in storage for two months, and they will still be edible nine months from now. Other types of produce can easily be stored, too, providing that certain guidelines are adhered to. What follows should help.
