Anti-abortion activists at the Johns Hopkins University who had fought to form an official club have been fully recognized, clearing the way for them to use the institution's logo and raise cash on campus. The university announced Wednesday that an earlier decision by the Student Government Association to block the group, Voice for Life, was reversed by a panel of student judges. The issue has set off a storm of debate over free speech and whether anti-abortion "sidewalk counseling" constitutes harassment at the private university.

They donned hairnets and gloves and branched off to various tables to form assembly lines to package and ship about 10,000 dehydrated meals destined for people in impoverished areas overseas. Students said they hoped some of the food would head to victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Visayas region of the Philippines last month. The effort marked the third consecutive year Hammond High School has staged a meal-packing event.

"Senator Getty was phenomenal last year in his dedication to helping the students," said Angela Bladen, a 2012 graduate of Francis Scott Key High School who served as the student representative to the county Board of Education during the 2011-2012 school year. During the 2012 legislative session of the General Assembly, the student government association initiated a legislative proposal that would make the current practice by which a student representative serves on the Carroll County Board of Education a requirement under state law. The Carroll County Senate Delegation introduced the proposal as Senate Bill 660. The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 47-0 but died in the House of Delegates.

Persistent budget cuts have created turmoil at the University of Maryland, College Park this past fall, prompting a student demonstration over the removal of one administrator, complaints about a lack of clear explanations from the provost and a sense of dread among faculty who say they're asked to do more with less. The state university system has cut more than $100 million from its 2010 budget in response to shortfalls in the state budget. As the system's largest campus, College Park has taken the biggest hits and will have to cut about $48 million by the end of the fiscal year in June.
