Two Baltimore city lawmakers have proposed legislation that would draw funding from the state's lottery revenue to support expanding early childhood education programs. The legislation would create a program called "Race to the Tots," -- named after the federal "Race to the Top" program- - and allow local districts to compete for grants that would "stimulate innovation for and expand access to high-quality early childhood education in Maryland," according to a release sent jointly by the bill's sponsors Sen. Bill Ferguson and Del. Sandy Rosenberg.

A new neighborhood in River Hill village is showing all the signs of an age-old "Not In My Back Yard" battle.But the source of the dissension among new neighbors is not a big, intrusive project. It's a proposed children's playground -- usually a staple of Columbia communities.The originally proposed site for the new tot lot, some residents say, would diminish their property values, impinge upon their privacy, threaten their security and attract rowdy teen-agers.But some of these opponents' neighbors say they're missing the whole point of living in Columbia, a sense of community.

A 4-foot wooden sign posted near the now-closed Lake Elkhorn tot lot screams: "Don't let C.A. Take Our Playground Away !!!!!" The Columbia Association has posted its own signs, declaring the playground closed after the CA board's directive last week in response to a toddler drowning at the nearby lake last fall. But parents yesterday ignored the signs. Instead, as more than a dozen children played on the equipment, the adults lamented the fate of the popular play area. "Removing the playground is way overkill," Amy McDaniel, who has two children, said of the CA board's decision to close the playground indefinitely as it decides what to do next with the structure.

Editor: On behalf of the officers and members of the Havre de Grace Ambulance Corps, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to our fifth annual Toys for Tots campaign this season. Our goal this was to fill, from front to back, all three of our Medic Units with new, unwrapped toys. I am happy to say that we were able to fulfill that goal for the U.S. Marine Corps' Reserves Toys for Tots Foundation so that hundreds of boys and girls could wake up on Christmas morning and have a brand new toy under their Christmas tree.

She and another bartender ended up collecting $700 for toy purchases that night.
