ANNAPOLIS - A battle between the state and a Hagerstown business focuses on dozens of older women who stitch handicrafts in their homes. Are they employees or independent contractors? The distinction will determine whether Alice's Home & Cottage must pay unemployment insurance for the women. The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR) considers them employees, which would be covered. Business owners Alice and Per-Olof Backman, however, argue that the women closely meet the definition of independent contractor.

A Virginia development company that wants to put a 3,000-home housing development in Jefferson County, W.Va. is offering the county commissioners a 75-acre site for a new high school if they endorse the project. Considering the possible impact of the development, that doesn't seem like nearly enough. The project would be built on a 1,000-acre parcel along U.S. 340 near Page Jackson Elementary School and would have 2,100 homes, 750 townhomes and 450 condominiums or apartments. It is described in terms that suggest a self-contained community, complete with playgrounds, a network of interconnecting sidewalks and an Olympic-sized pools, all built around a new shopping and office complex.

The kids have decided to organize our house. Each day when I come home from work, another drawer or cupboard has a fresh, new look. I never know what to expect, and I never know what they are going to throw away. For a pack rat like me, the process is scary, and somewhat painful. However, I vow not to interfere because some of the stuff is theirs anyway. If they want to pitch it, sell it, donate it, who am I to stand in the way? I've also tried to avoid asking questions about the items that have been eliminated.

For a man, a week away from home means booking a flight, packing a bag and taking off. Planning for a trip rarely involves the intricacies of a woman's life, especially if children are involved. Some of today's teens and preteens have schedules that rival a CEO's. We moms are the ones making that happen. Yes, I know dads help, too, but overall moms are keepers of the calendars. So, when we go away, things tend to get a little interesting. I've been thinking of this scenario lately because I leave Saturday for a weeklong mission trip to Costa Rica, a trip I mentioned in a previous column.

Each time I read about a teen who has sent a thousand text messages in a month, I wonder where the parents are. How can a teen have time to send that many messages to friends and still do homework, communicate with family, participate on a sports team, take music lessons, read a good book and help with household chores? Yes, I know I'm from the Dark Ages. Recently my 11-year-old was observing some teens. "Mom, they don't talk to each other. They just send messages back and forth.

Before Guitar Shorty was born on a marquee in Florida, there was an aspiring blues guitarist by the name of David Kearney, who attended school by day and gigged at Florida clubs at night. He had already come a long way from having to prop his Uncle Willy's guitar against the wall in order to play because it was too big for him to handle, and an even longer way since the days he'd cry to his granny when he couldn't get Uncle Willy's guitar to work like he wanted. But it was one night at a gig that the name "Guitar Shorty" adopted David Kearney - someone had put "The Walter Johnson Band featuring Guitar Shorty" on the marquee.
