If you're reading this column: A. The turkey still must be in the oven; B. You're dressing to go out to dinner; or C. Your feast is history, and before you face the cleanup, you're spending a few reflective moments on the sofa.

Be thankful for our many blessings, one of which is the high-quality teaching at Severna Park High School.

After the second round of this year's 22nd annual county math competition, Severna Park is maintaining its customary lead over 33 other teams.

The school math team accrued 22.34 out of a possible 24 points. The nearest competitors were South River High with 17.34 and Annapolis High with 17. Overall scores are determined by adding the average of each school's top three individual scores to its highest team score.

Perfect scores of six were earned by Severna Park's Adam Meyerson and the Severna Park team. Earning four individual points were Joe Maloney of South River, and Steven Albert, Geoffrey Atkinson and Chris DiBlasi of Severna Park.

The third round in the year-long academic contest is scheduled for Dec. 12.
