ANNAPOLIS - School systems from all over Maryland lined up Wednesday for the Board of Public Works' annual hearing on school construction requests. Dubbed "the beg-a-thon" by Annapolis insiders, the event is a lengthy process, with each jurisdiction outlining its building program for the next fiscal year. So when a St. Mary's County legislator confined his remarks to a simple "do the best you can for us," Gov. Robert Ehrlich made no attempt to hide his relief. "That's why the man's been elected so many times," he said.
