In March, when the Baltimore school system was looking for a $42 million loan to bail it out of some poor financial decisions, we said that Maryland ought to put some tough conditions on any loan. We also said that state education officials, who should have been paying closer attention to Baltimore's descent into a flood of red ink, needed a shake-up of their own. They may get it sooner than they anticipated. Last week, Circuit Judge Joseph H.H. Kaplan issued a 70-page ruling, which said the state should increase its contribution to the Baltimore schools by $225 million in the next four years.

A biplane circled low and banked over a Hagerstown Housing Authority apartment complex at 55 W. Baltimore St. at around noon Wednesday. The biplane did not take off from Hagerstown Regional Airport and, as of about 2:10 p.m., did not land there, according to David Pence, air-traffic manager for Midwest ATC at the airport's control tower. The plane could have taken off from a private airstrip or one of the public airports in the Tri-State area, Pence said. The aircraft was flying low enough over the C. Williams Brooks building that markings such as its trim colors could be seen with the naked eye. Federal Aviation Administration regulations prohibit planes from flying below 500 feet over populated areas, Pence said.
