Nice of you to write an editorial calling on Larry Hogan to define his agenda ( "The Hogan agenda, according to Brown," Sept. 16). OK, good point. But shouldn't the media be covering this election fairly to help voters decide between the two candidates? I read your paper daily, and I have no idea what Mr. Hogan is about or even much of a sense that there is a governor's race going on. My question for you is: If Mr. Hogan spells out his agenda in the woods and The Sun doesn't report what he says, will anyone hear it?

There could not have been a better argument for more debates between Maryland's two candidates for the U.S. Senate than the contrast between the final presidential debate and the local confrontation, which followed one another Monday night.The second and third presidential debates were each livelier and more informative than the one before, as the candidates reacted to each other and to public critiques of their previous performances. If the debate between Sen. Barbara Mikulski and her opponent, Alan Keyes, had been the first of a series, we could look forward to greater enlightenment.

Michael Anthony Peroutka and David Whitney, who are vying for the same seat on the Anne Arundel County Council, are members of the League of the South, an organization whose stated goal is the secession of Southern states. Peroutka also believes elected officials should return to a "Biblical worldview" of the founding fathers, and Whitney preaches at his Pasadena church that God is essential in government and that current political leaders are "wicked and corrupt. " Such views and affiliations have landed Peroutka and Whitney on a list of "extremist candidates" compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based nonprofit that tracks hate groups.

I am appalled at the two candidates for the upcoming Primary Election in June, one in each of the two major parties in this county: a Republican and a Democrat. The Republican is County Executive David Craig. He ignored the needs and petitions of voters in the southwest corner of the county: Joppa and Edgewood, District A in not championing the purchase of the Joppatowne pool property that would have ultimately served all of District A not just Joppatowne. Instead, [he championed]

Before Democrat Parris Glendening and Republican Ellen Sauerbrey get too deeply into their sound-bite campaigns for governor, they have an obligation to tell voters where they stand on critical problems confronting this state. Not in 30-second responses, or in political charges and counter-charges, but in detailed discussions.The two candidates are poles apart on many matters: Mr. Glendening is a mainstream Democrat; Mrs. Sauerbrey is a staunchly conservative Republican. They view government quite differently -- Mrs. Sauerbrey believes in minimal intrusion, Mr. Glendening favors an activist role to solve problems.

WHEN THE TWO candidates for president eagerly proclaim their mutual endorsement of the Golden Rule, as George W. Bush and Al Gore did last night, you can probably forget about a revealing exchange of views. Perhaps that outcome could have been predicted. Maybe it was even the objective. While some observers were looking for the candidates to assert their strengths and flash their grasp on leadership and the issues, caution ruled and probably left matters where they were in most national polls, dead even.

THE DEMOCRATIC presidential candidates have a problem and it's not just President Bush. To run a credible primary campaign costs about $25 million. How can a candidate raise that kind of money in a recession when few people believe George Bush is beatable?The solution for the Democrats is to change the rules of the game right now. Two candidates need to join forces and run as a team, a presidential-vice presidential ticket.With the right two candidates, the team would possess tremendous advantages in the primaries.

The recent article, "Gansler, Brown clash over domestic violence proposals (Oct 29), pointed out to your readers where two candidates stand regarding domestic violence, so how about giving me an opportunity to express my thoughts on this issue? Unfortunately, I have been a victim of domestic violence. I know first hand what it is like when a spouse hits you, spits at you, attempts to scratch your eyes and uses verbal abuse as well. My experiences from this dreadful situation serve to validate the importance of getting out of those horrendous circumstances immediately.

We need fresh voices with bipartisan ideas in Annapolis. After attending a Howard County candidates forum in Savage on May 21, I heard two such voices running for a District 13 seat in the House of Delegates - one from each party. Democrat Najab Siddiqui had the soft-spoken insight of a local business owner, job creator and professional engineer. His desire for excellence in both the county and the state was well evident. He provides a sound choice for those party voters who want change in their district representation.

Anne Arundel County could have a new chief for its troubled Police Department within weeks, as County Executive Laura Neuman said she has narrowed the search to two Marylanders. Neuman declined to identify the top candidates but said this week that she might name a new chief within a month. "It is my intention to hire from outside because we've had some systemic issues within the department," she said. The new chief will be the third in about a year for the 670-officer department after the resignations of James Teare Sr. last summer and Larry W. Tolliver in May. The new hire will be the first permanent police chief named by Neuman since her appointment in February to complete the term of John R. Leopold, who resigned after criminal convictions that including directing his police protection detail to perform personal and political errands.

Elections are like thermometers. They're good for gauging the social and political temperature of where we live. That's why I was a little alarmed by the results that came out of the race for the Howard County Board of Education on Nov. 3. I would classify it as a low-grade fever, a sort of creeping bias that has infected the community.Of the four candidates who ran for the board, only two could win.Sandra French and Linda Johnston, both of whom are white, won by large margins, garnering 47,170 votes and 39,082 votes respectively.

Holt and Nevin better choices for school board The citizens of Carroll County are extremely fortunate to have four highly experienced, intelligent and educated candidates for our two school board positions. However, The Sun's editorial endorsement of school board candidates Lisa Breslin and Tom Hiltz neglected to identify the key issue that separates the four candidates -- their positions on the new Westminster-area high school ("Breslin, Hiltz for school board," editorial, Oct. 24). Given the great public mistrust and dissatisfaction of our present school board, it is most surprising that the two candidates The Sun endorsed insist that the county proceed with the construction of that school.

Loyola said it will announce on Friday its choice to replace former men's basketball coach Jimmy Patsos. Villanova assistant Raphael Chillious is a finalist for the post, according to a source with knowledge of the search. Loyola assistant G.G. Smith is also a finalist, the source said. Chillious, who is originally from Olney, joined Villanova coach Jay Wright in August 2012 following three seasons at Washington. He played at Lafayette, graduating in 1996. Smith, the son of Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith and a former player at Georgia, has been with Loyola for six seasons as an assistant.

The Anne Arundel County Council deadlocked Thursday night over a vote to appoint a replacement for the seat vacated by former Councilman Daryl D. Jones. With more than 100 rounds of council votes, the council remained tied on two candidates. Republican Councilmen Derek Fink, of Pasadena; Councilman John J. Grasso, of Glen Burnie; and Councilman Richard B. "Dick" Ladd, of Broadneck, voted for former state Sen. Michael J. Wagner. Democrats Jamie Benoit, of Crownsville; Chris Trumbauer, of Annapolis; and Republican Jerry Walker, of Gambrills, supported Marine Reservist Peter Smith.
