WASHINGTON COUNTY -- A battle over the measurement of wealth is pitting two metropolitan counties against the rest of Maryland. At issue is when the state should compile "net taxable income" data from tax returns to calculate state aid. If the measurement date moves from Sept. 1 to Nov. 1, as has been proposed before, it would shift millions of dollars away from Baltimore and Montgomery counties to other counties. Washington County Public Schools would have gained as much as $3.8 million in fiscal year 2008, according to Anthony Trotta, the school system's chief legal counsel.

SMITHSBURG - One might wonder how a girl from New Hampshire could find her way to a small town in Washington County, Md., and feel so much at home. Krystina Gaudio grew up in a family where her dad was involved in emergency medical services for 20 years. "EMS comes so naturally to me," she said. So when the 22-year-old was exploring career possibilities, it was no surprise that she would gravitate toward helping others. "A friend recommended the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus, program," she said.

ANNAPOLIS - Tuesday's announced closing of a troubled Baltimore County state facility for mentally challenged people will not bring new dangers to a similar facility in Hagerstown, a state Cabinet secretary said. Rosewood Center in Owings Mills, Md., will be shut down once all of the patients are relocated, which is expected to take 18 months, Gov. Martin O'Malley's office said. A main concern at Potomac Center on Marshall Street in Hagerstown is whether it will get any of Rosewood's clients with criminal backgrounds.

ANNAPOLIS - Hagerstown's Potomac Center for mentally retarded people was bracing this week for an influx of clients from a troubled Baltimore County center targeted for shutdown. State investigators have alleged abuse and neglect at the Rosewood Center in Owings Mills in Baltimore County. The state's Office of Health Care Quality last month banned the Rosewood Center from admitting anyone new until late February. Potomac Center employees expect that mentally retarded people - including some who committed crimes - will be diverted to Hagerstown, possibly right away, said Freida Forrest, a Potomac Center direct care worker.
