While Carroll County has zoned hundreds of acres for industrial development, environmental and geographical issues make much of the land difficult to develop. A tour of 14 sites last week showed members of the county's Economic Development Commission the situations "firsthand." "The tour helped put issues into perspective," said Robert G. Holmes, commission director. "We were able to see firsthand the environmental issues, the topography and other impacts. You think you have 500 acres in a property, when you actually have much less."

Federal officials announced Friday a major expansion of the “ urban waters ” initiative they kicked off in Baltimore nearly two years ago, adding 11 new blighted water ways around the country to the seven they've already pledged to help clean up and redevelop, including the Patapsco River. Representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency and 12 other federal agencies gathered for the announcement this time in Grand Rapids, Mich. A group of kayakers there has teamed up with a private engineering firm to push a $27 million white-water park on the Grand River flowing through the city's downtown.

Given how low the expectations were for President Barack Obama's highly publicized trip to the Middle East, it may not be saying much to declare that he exceeded them. But given the precarious state of Israeli-Palestinian relations, it would also be easy to underappreciate just how crucial his efforts may prove to be in the long quest for a lasting peace in the Middle East. When Mr. Obama arrived in Israel, he faced many who believed that the possibility of a two-state solution was on its death bed, if not gone already.

In times like this, a nation finds out who its friends are. Those who claimed Clinton hit Sudan to distract from his sins and those who denounce Sharon for overreacting ain't seen nuthin' yet. To hit Afghanistan is one thing. To do the Taliban tangible harm is quite another. Now people may quit trying to build the tallest building. Defeat the terrorists. Go back to work.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller has called for the establishment of a center in Baltimore for the state's top two public research universities to seek funding of joint projects — a step toward his eventual goal of "reunification" for the institutions. The Calvert County Democrat also called for the Baltimore and College Park campuses to run more joint programs at the University of Maryland's Shady Grove campus in Montgomery County, indicating that he has not given up his long-term aim of merging the three under a single banner.

Networks should pay Coley Harvey Orlando Sentinel With the reforms announced last week, at least we can finally say the NCAA is no longer crawling around aimlessly on its hands and knees. The big boy diapers may remain, but at least the association has taken its first baby step. Applause for the proposed move to pay student-athletes a $2,000 stipend, and further applause for the multiyear scholarships they can now sign. The only problem is this: Who will fund it all?

With the first Maryland TechCrawl kicking off tonight, Heather Sarkissian and John Trupiano hope to bring some attention and excitement to those Baltimore-area startup companies that are busy creating high-tech products. The TechCrawl will be a "show and tell," where high-technology product makers pitch their companies' wares to an eager audience of discerning investors, potential partners and curious journalists, organizers said. Each company will have a booth and a home plate - visitors to their booths will step up to the plate and immediately be "pitched" by a company representative for 60 seconds.

You can want your newspaper to be objective, but in the case of the New York Daily News, it decided just to object. And what the News is objecting to is New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas. The newspaper printed "Fire Isiah" signs Saturday, after a fan was tossed from Madison Square Garden for holding up a sign with the same message. The full-page sign came with instructions: "to be held up during next Knicks blowout." Sort of news you can use. Rock the vote So here's why you don't want your daughter dating a top-flight college quarterback.

There is a real tangible sense of relief emanating from a lot of people - outside of New England, that is - because someone other than the Patriots is in the Super Bowl. Everybody knows the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick-Scott Pioli stories by heart from the previous five years. The Colts do bring something completely new, starting with their quarterback's big-game reputation. Remember last week when Brian Billick said he faced a lot of nights waking up at 2 and 3 in the morning replaying the mistakes from the Ravens' playoff loss?

A dozen goats arrived in a war-ravaged area of western Uganda 11 years ago, a gift from a charity based in Little Rock, Ark., that would quickly provide villagers with milk and income. One goat from that herd helped send a village daughter to college in the United States. "My family received a goat and that is where my story begins," said Beatrice Biira, 21. Biira will tell that story as she participates this weekend in a reunion in Carroll County. The gathering honors volunteers for the Heifer Foundation, a humanitarian organization which has, since 1944, helped 7 million families worldwide with gifts of livestock.
