Bill Lets School Board Raise Property Taxes. Legislation giving local school boards the authority to raise property taxes is picking up support in Annapolis.The proposal is unique to Maryland and allows local school boards to impose by resolution a property tax to provide funding for public school operation and expenses, 11 News I-Team reporter David Collins said. The tax is in addition to the property taxes already in place.”About 35 states have school boards that do their own taxing. We’d like to see if that format would work here,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairwoman Delegate Sheila Hixon, a Democrat.

Kickoffs Moved To 35, Touchbacks Stay At 20. The NFL will move kickoffs up 5 yards to the 35-yard line, keep touchbacks coming out to the 20 and allow the number of players in a blocking wedge to remain at two. Kick coverage players now will be limited to lining up 5 yards or fewer from the spot of the kickoff. Team owners also voted Tuesday to make all scoring plays reviewable by the replay official and referee. But they tabled a proposal to ban players launching themselves to make a tackle, and will reconsider it in May. The league’s competition committee proposed placing the ball at the 25 after touchbacks on kickoffs and banning the wedge altogether. Several coaches expressed concern about making too many changes to kickoffs, also saying bringing touchbacks out 5 more yards would affect field position too much. Coaches worried about an increase in touchbacks from the 16 percent of kickoffs last season.

Autism Study Looks At Pregnant Moms.  A Crofton family is among those across the country taking part in a groundbreaking study on early autism risk factors.The 10-year nationwide study is known as Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI), and it focuses on pregnant mothers who already have a child with autism.When the Waldman family discovered their now 3-year-old son, John Michael, has autism spectrum disorder, it was shock, especially because his older brother, Calib, doesn’t have the disorder. “I thought, ‘Well, they’re two very different boys.’ But there was a reason for it,” father Robert Waldman said.

    I am always concerned and dismayed when i hear of senseless death. Not having a functional CO detector while operating something so lethal as a generator near the home is beyond reason, but it happens all the time.

    My heart goes out to all who knew this person, for the loss is without cause except short-sighted disrespect for the Silent Killer. Too often we share living quarters with this demon, driving us dumbly and blindly towards early demise.

    It breaks my heart. Why in a sane world do we tolerate such situations where a potential death could be so easily prevented by a $20 device? It seems there ought to be law.

  2. John Frenaye says:

    There have been too many deaths this year in particular. I will boldly lay the blame at BGE and the legislators who allowed the price of electricity to escalate to the point where it was unaffordable to most necessitating these dumb moves.

    Also, most fire departments will provide and install these detectors if you are unable to afford one. They woudl much rather be out the $20 than have to end up dragging a lifeless body out of another home.

  3. Joe Lamy says:

    Is there a way to promote a community-wide effort to put this issue to rest, short of legislation?? When I think how many folks are so often gassed in their homes and the culprit almost never detected until it’s too late, the impact on our culture is far greater than anyone can count. Death is merely the tip of this monster; many times in my life and in the lives of others I have known, the impact of carbon monoxide poisoning deteriorates consciousness, eliminates the most creative elements and drags down the human potential to fight-or-fly, to short-circuited reactions and to dismal choices. Even in low levels, CO wipes out short-term memory and leaves blank and dry a mind, once a flowing river of thought.

    I should think our community – steeped in respect for our higher potentials – would find this situation completely intolerable and could, if directed by a vision of respect for life, find a way to make this health and safety standard a more prominent feature of every household irrespective of income or status.
