Middle school redistricting to be discussed


January 04, 1995|By BONTA FORMWALT

"So, what are your New Year's resolutions," my friend casually asked.

Opening my file cabinet, I retrieved a manila folder marked "1985."

"1985?" She appeared confused.

The date wasn't the issue, I explained. Resolutions need never change; they simply must be modified from year to year. For example:

1985 resolution: exercise to lose 10 pounds. This year's version: exercise right wrist by using television remote to bypass commercials featuring Jenny Craig.

1985 resolution: read editorial page of newspaper for insight into political and social climate. This year's version: read "Doonesbury."

1985 resolution: watch intellectual shows like "60 Minutes" every Sunday on Channel 11. This year's version: watch "60 Minutes" every Sunday on Channel 11. Channel 2? Channel . . . ? Never mind. Make that: abandon "Great Network Shift" and watch "Classic Simpsons" on Fox 45.

1985 resolution: prepare for children's college expenses through careful budgeting and planning. This year's version: prepare for college expenses by registering children for youth football, intramural basketball and purchasing tiny little golf clubs at Play It Again Sports.

Happy New Year, Glen Burnie.


Issues concerning proposed school redistricting for students in the Corkran Middle School community will be discussed at 7 p.m. Monday in the school's auditorium.

Principal Phyllis Cherry and members of the PTA and CAC will be on hand to answer any questions. Corkran representatives will then express the majority's concerns and opinions at the public hearing scheduled for later this month.

A proposal to ease crowding at Marley Middle School recommends that students from Glendale Elementary attend Corkran instead of Marley Middle. To avoid crowding at Corkran, students from Quarterfield Elementary would be promoted to Old Mill Middle South.
