ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) - Howard County school officials have disciplined a student who displayed a Confederate flag at a high school football game.

Schools spokeswoman Rebecca Amani-Dove declined to specify how the Glenelg High School student was disciplined following the Friday incident.

She says displaying the Confederate flag isn't illegal, but school administrators can take action against "anything that causes disruption."

Ken Ulman, Anthony Brown’s running mate in the Democratic primary race for governor, took a walk through downtown Salisbury.

He was making his case for his team saying that if elected they would focus on creating a competitive business climate and working with local partners.

As Howard County executive he told residents that he realized that the area was still recovering from the 2008 recession and that a Brown administration did not see a real reason to raise taxes.

But the Salisbury Daily Times reports a blog has floated the idea of Ireton joining another potential Democratic gubernatorial candidate State Attorney General Doug Gansler.

The paper reports that Ireton said that he has been getting some curious callers.

But the Salisbury Daily Times reports that Ireton did not give any hints on his future when asked about the chances of joining a Gansler ticket.
