Editorial - A package we can back A new $61.5 million aid package proposed for Maryland's public schools by Gov. Parris Glendening appears to be a winner because it distributes funds on a need-based formula instead of according to an area's political clout. From what we've seen so far, this is a measure worth backing. Glendening was under pressure to come up with a new formula because of last year's out-of-court settlement, which gives the Baltimore City schools $250 million in new money over five years.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - When it comes to barking dogs, the law in Berkeley County, W.Va., will not discriminate between pit bulls and Pomeranians. If it barks, its owner is going to pay. After debating what the maximum fine should be for people who allow their dogs to bark and bother neighbors, the Berkeley County Commission settled on $250 and then adopted a barking dog ordinance Thursday morning. It will take effect Oct. 1. All three of the county's commissioners agreed first-time offenders should be fined $100.

A message from the book of Daniel To the editor: On June 27, I found a sticky note in my Bible that merely said, “Daniel 13:9.” I have been in Bible studies recently, but could not recall what the verse said, so I looked it up.  The scene described judges who made a decision, a very bad decision. It said: “They suppressed their consciences; they would not allow their eyes to look up to heaven, and did not keep in mind just judgements.” This find that I made in my Bible came on the same day that five of our Supreme Court judges handed down their decision against the natural law of marriage between a man and a woman.

If you've ever wanted to know what it's like to live somewhere else, you will today. I interviewed my pen pal, Shiv Subramanyam, 14, who lives on the other side of the world. I met Shiv though my mom and his mom. They met through Mothering Magazine, after my mom responded to an ad placed by Shiv's mom for a pen pal. When our moms met, Shiv was 18 months old, I was still residing in my mom's womb. Shiv was born in Mysore, India, and currently lives in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately: "Often times, I have an occasion to come down the street Social Services is on - Potomac - and see women going in with lit cigarettes in their hand or mouth, sometimes with a baby or toddler. They stamp it out before going in. I at times ride by this shelter, or take items to their thrift shop and it never fails - there is at least one of the people who reside in these shelters sitting outside smoking, sometimes more than one. Cigarettes are so very expensive, how can people afford them, yet they are homeless, getting food stamps, medical help, etc. I am just scratching my head wondering, about this.

"Try this test. Turn on any of the national TV news shows, except Fox News, and then face away from it. Listen and you will hear 'Barack Obama' about every 15 or 20 seconds. It's not that the media are liberal, it's just that they like the sound of his name and they love to say it. It rolls so nicely off the tongue. " - Chambersburg, Pa. "The United States does not have an official language. Thirty states have adopted English as their official language. Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia do not, but Wikipedia says they have legislation in current session.
