Alderman Ward 6
For the last year and a half, I have been working on the idea of establishing a skateboard park in the Annapolis area.
A lot of time and effort has been spent researching this project. I am at the point where I now need to know if this is what the children and parents of the area still want. I would like to get the program "rolling," ifthe support is still there.
I therefore would like all interestedparties (skaters, parents, business owners or any other friend of youth) to contact me in writing at 146 Conley Drive, Annapolis, Md. 21403.
Anyone interested in joining a committee should indicate such in the letter. If ample support is not received, I will put the issueto rest.
I am a firm believer that all of today's children need to have a safe and controlled environment in which to pursue their recreational interests.
GOODBYE TO NORTHEAST
From: Len Sokoloff
Northeast High School
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the students and the parents of the Northeast community and also the faculty at Northeast High School for the privilege of being able to work with you for these past seven years.
There is no question in my mind that the years I spent at Northeast have been the most enjoyable and fulfilling of any in my professional career.
The students that I have worked with treated me with a great deal of respect; the parents were unbelievably cooperative and supportive; the faculty, including my fellow counselors, were very concerned, caring, and professional.
You have a great deal to be proud of at Northeast.
It is with great sadness that I leave, but in light of recent events at the school, I feel that I had no choice but to leave.
Again, thank you for the wonderful years at Northeast, and maybe someday I will be able to return to the Northeast family.
