laurae@herald-mail.com A Hagerstown man met with Maryland's lieutenant governor Thursday, urging the state to spend more money on adult literacy. Statewide, about 1 in 5 adults function at the lowest literacy level, Brad H. Keller said. "That means they can't pick out two pieces of information from a newspaper article, find an intersection on a street map or read a bus schedule," he said. In Washington County, that definition applies to 17 percent of those 16 and older, said Keller, public policy chair of the Maryland Association for Adult Community Continuing Education.

Michael Steele interviewed and observed students who do Tuesday at Washington County Technical High School. Steele was in Hagerstown as part of an education fact-finding tour. Counting Tuesday's visit to the Technical High School, he has hit 20 of the state's 24 school systems, according to his itinerary. Gov. Robert Ehrlich in September created the Governor's Commission on Quality Education to study accountability, school-community links, best practices and early childhood programs.

Rep. Benjamin Cardin (D) and Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (R) - the candidates seeking the seat of retiring Sen. U.S. Sen Paul Sarbanes - might be best known to Western Marylanders for their dueling puppy dog ads. But fluff aside, Cardin offers a solid, documented track record of sound policy, while Steele has yet to define himself for the voters. Admittedly, running as an outsider when your party has a lock on insider status allows for little wiggle room. Steele has consequently been tiptoeing a tough line, hoping voters will notice his winning personality and ignore the fact that he hasn't said much of substance about much of anything.
