The Democratic theme song is "Happy Days Are Here Again," and nowhere do Democrats think that axiom applies better than in the realm of fighting crime. They recall that thanks to legislation passed in 1994, Bill Clinton put 100,000 new cops on the street, and the result was an abatement of violence. Give Democrats their way, they suggest, and we can repeat that success. Leading the charge is Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware, who sponsored that bill and is pushing legislation to hire another 50,000 officers, at a cost of $3.6 billion over six years, under the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS)

On a day when the heat index flirted with the 100-degree mark and the humidity lingered like an unwanted guest, Joan Worrall and Linda Kelly might very well have been the coolest women in Maryland. The two friends sat on their inner tubes on a tiny patch of muddy sand by the side of the Gunpowder River near Monkton, close enough to the chilly water to feel its air-conditioning effect, and nibbled on watermelon chunks and smoked salmon on crackers. On a normal day off together, they might have gone horseback riding, but it was one of those days when the National Weather Service issues dire-sounding heat advisories about proper care of children and animals.

The fate of a planned 300-acre regional park in Columbia might not be decided for at least 11 months under a ruling yesterday by a Howard County judge.Circuit Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. postponed trial of a lawsuit that has held up development of the land, which the county and state jointly purchased in August 1998 with the goal of creating baseball and soccer fields. Unless Kane throws out the suit, the next trial date would be November 2000 at the earliest.His decision yesterday surprised both sides in the suit, brought by a friend of the late Elizabeth C. "Nancy" Smith, who owned the land straddling Route 175 in the heart of Columbia.

A private foundation fighting to preserve a 300-acre farm in Columbia scored a legal victory last week that could prevent the property from becoming a regional park.Even though the outcome is months away, the latest action will give lawyers representing the Elizabeth "Nancy" C. Smith Foundation more ammunition in their fight to preserve Blandair farm.The foundation, established by friends of the reclusive Smith, is suing Smith's heirs to prevent them from selling the farm to Howard County, which has plans to build a park, replete with soccer fields and nature trails.

LAUREL -- Maryland steeplechase star Von Csadek, who is campaigning in England, was coughing at Wantage, Berkshire, yesterday, but it was considered only a minor setback.The jumper appears to be on course for the King George VI Stakes Dec. 26. That is Boxing Day in England, traditional day for the race at Kempton.The coughing will keep Von Csadek from running in a minor race at Cheltenham tomorrow. He is 2-for-3 since arriving in England Aug. 12.It would seem logical that Von Csadek is in England for the Grand National at Aintree.
