Maryland officials are coming out with a high-tech, hard-to-duplicate driver's license aimed at thwarting underage drinkers and others with criminal intent. And it comes in colors. Although the state's driver's license was in the news recently because one of the president's daughters got caught with a fake Maryland ID at a Connecticut bar, Motor Vehicle Administration officials say they have been planning a makeover for the past couple of years, bowing to the computer-age technology that has turned document forgery into a cottage industry.

The congregation that owns the 140-year-old West Baltimore church, destroyed last week by lightning, is fending off multiple foreclosure threats because of the delinquent water bill and an alleged mortgage default on the 9-acre property the church owns in Southwest Baltimore, according to court records.

When Jim Maguire returned to his Pikesville home recently after a week out of town, he found a reminder from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration to renew the registration on his car waiting in the pile of mail. "I was just going to set it aside and look at it in another month," the longtime Marylander said. "I just assumed it didn't apply to me immediately. " Luckily he didn't, because it did. Maguire, 53, was one of thousands of Marylanders who were sent notices to renew their vehicle registrations days before their tags were due to expire.

Branch offices of the state Motor Vehicle Administration could not complete some transactions for about an hour yesterday morning because a glitch kept them from connecting with the agency's mainframe computer, officials said. The glitch was the result of a software update over the weekend and was discovered when branch offices opened at 8:30 a.m. yesterday. The problem was fixed and the system was back up by 9:35. MVA offices were shut down for a day in August when the agency's computers crashed because of a computer virus.
