Last week in Annapolis, House Republicans gave a classic something-for-nothing pitch to mend Maryland's $1.5 billion deficit. On the surface, it sounded pretty reasonable - restrain the growth of state government and taxes won't have to be raised. But as with most anything of consequence, the devil is in the details, and the GOP plan is short on specifics. Setting aside the $600 million the plan anticipates from the licensing of a whopping 15,000 slot machines at a half-dozen unnamed venues (surely a dubious proposal on many levels)

The Oakland Mills Tiger Sharks, the team with the fewest members in the Columbia Neighborhood Swim League, had won only one meet since 1993 entering Saturday's competition against the Clary's Forest Sundevils. But they are back in the win column, thanks to a 307-296 victory over the Sundevils at the Swansfield pool. Tigers Sharks head coach Brandon Thornton, 24, remembers the victory 14 years ago when he was a 10-year-old swimmer on the team. He watched them win once more as an assistant coach in a meet against Clary's Forest in 2003.

Six-year-old Jalen Knight is proud to be a Tiger Shark. The Oakland Mills Tiger Sharks, the team with the fewest members in the Columbia Neighborhood Swim League, has won only one meet since 1993, but its members never lack spirit. "[I] just try my best and have fun," said Jalen, who is learning from coach Brandon Thornton. A sergeant in the Marine Corps Reserve, Thornton missed the 2004 swim season while serving 10 months in Iraq. Upon his return, the league placed Thornton with the Pointer's Run Piranhas, a large team that lost only one meet under his leadership.

A possible contender to be Baltimore's next schools chief has faced ethical questions during his tenure as the No. 2 school official in Philadelphia. Gregory Thornton was one of two top Philadelphia school officials who went on a trip to South Africa in the summer of 2004. The trip was partly paid for by an education software company, Plato Learning. Later that year, Thornton and the other administrator who went on the trip signed off on a no-bid, $926,000 contract for Plato, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

A top Philadelphia school official, Gregory E. Thornton, is in the running to become the chief executive officer of Baltimore's school system, according to sources close to him. "I know he is a front-runner," said Paul G. Vallas, the departing CEO of Philadelphia's schools. Baltimore school board members have declined to name the candidates they are considering. Thornton was the deputy superintendent in Montgomery County before leaving in 2004 to become the chief academic officer in Philadelphia, the No. 2 position there.

The Sun's Andrew A. Green recently offered a comprehensive, historical account of Maryland's structural deficit. You know what that is, right? It's the difference between committed spending and expected income. When legislators commit to spending not covered by anticipated income, the state has a structural deficit. Over some lengthy period, the built-in shortfall has become the governmental version of the weather: Everybody talks about it, but nobody does anything about it. Actually, that's wrong.

Moving to bring the 2007-2008 city schools budget into compliance with state law, interim schools chief Charlene Cooper Boston yesterday said she planned to reshuffle budget money to provide prekindergarten for more low-income city 4-year-olds. The state's so-called Thornton legislation requires that school systems offer prekindergarten to all low-income 4-year-olds by the 2007-2008 school year, and it is providing millions of dollars for them to do so. In the budget proposal before the school board, Boston included $820,000 to add prekindergarten classes at eight schools.
