WASHINGTON - During Bernadine Healy's tumultuous final six months as president of the American Red Cross, the nonprofit agency awarded her $1.9 million. As a result, Healy's replacement, former Rear Adm. Marsha Evans, and the agency's board have launched separate reviews of the way the Red Cross compensates its senior employees. Healy wept in public frustration when she was forced out of the top American Red Cross job in the tense and confusing aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the fall of 2001.

That's a wise move by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Police Commissioner Tony Batts, asking the feds to open a civil rights investigation into police brutality and how cases are handled here. But I have a question: She took office in February 2010; didn't the mayor recognize a troubling trend in settlements and court judgments before she read about them in this newspaper? It's a tough job, running the city; it's hard to keep track of everything. But, as a member of the Board of Estimates since 2007 - first as City Council president, then as mayor - didn't Rawlings-Blake notice damages going to victims of beatings and other appalling police actions?

The President Obama many fellow Democrats have been looking for ever since his 2008 election may have shown up last week at the United Nations. His tough and direct call on the rest of the international community to step up to the challenge of global terrorism displayed a spine they have long felt missing in action. Words, to be sure, are not action. But his demand that the rest of the world community put muscle behind its anti-terrorism rhetoric had a pointed intensity too often lacking in his previous preachings.

Maintaining an environmentally friendly landscape at her family's home in Long Reach comes as second nature to Janine Pollack, who loves gardening and the outdoors. The pluses, some obvious and some not, are numerous. They include the inherent adaptability of native plants to the area's climate as well as their ability to attract insects, which attract birds, which attract wildlife. But the primary ecological benefit - which goes undetected by most visitors surveying the natural beauty of Pollack's outdoor canvas - is the ability of strategically placed landscaping to prevent polluted stormwater runoff from spoiling waterways and eventually fouling the Chesapeake Bay. Such benefits, and the principles behind them, will explained to visitors Sept.

"To day has bin a memorable day," Emilie Frances Davis wrote in a miniature diary on Jan. 1, 1863, the date the Emancipation Proclamation became law. "I thank God I have bin here to see it. The day was religiously observed, all the churches were open. We had quite a Jubilee in the evening. I went to Joness to a party, had a very blessest time. " Davis, a 21-year-old seamstress and freeborn black woman living in Philadelphia, was jotting down her feelings about the event that came to be known as Jubilee Day in one of three pocket diaries she kept from 1863 to 1865 during the height of the Civil War. The diaries, which somehow avoided destruction, are being published now for the first time.

COLLEGE PARK - The one constant in Mark Turgeon's steady climb up the coaching ladder was building the type of reputation that most in his profession covet. It is summed up by two simple letters that for decades have described some of basketball's top minds: X's and O's. Trying to attract what once were called blue-chip prospects to programs that were off the radar because of location, league affiliation or fan interest was often difficult, making it crucial for Turgeon to outcoach his counterparts.

Given what he said recently about solving Baltimore's crime problem, one imagines Martin O'Malley charging into the dressing room of a police district station, flipping the poker table upside down and yelling, "Get off your butts, you guys, and go arrest everybody!" Except, instead of "butts," he'd probably use that other word he used in 2001 when, as the cocky first-term mayor of Charm City, O'Malley famously trash-talked Pat Jessamy for not prosecuting a case our then-state's attorney considered a loser.

Why are state officials preparing to give students the Maryland School Assessment tests this year knowing that the exams can't and won't do what they're supposed to do, which is tell educators which schools are making progress and which are not? There's got to be a better use for the $9 million it costs Maryland to administer the exams each year, and the state shouldn't be wasting money on tests that don't tell us what we need to know. Maryland has used the MSA for a decade to evaluate the performance of schools and teachers.

Baltimore's leaders are to be commended for their efforts to steadily reduce crime, improve student test scores and graduation rates, and lower property taxes. Such steps are absolutely critical to meeting Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's goal of reversing Baltimore's decades-long decline and drawing 10,000 new families to the city over a 10-year period. Yet even if all those worthy goals are achieved, no outsider - or resident - will think of Baltimore as a truly great metropolis (let alone the "Greatest City on Earth," as those bus benches proclaim)
