November 04, 1996|By Jean Leslie | Jean Leslie,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE MOUNT HEBRON High School drama department will produce "A Few Good Men," its version of Aaron Sorkin's Broadway play, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week and next.

The plot involves the trial of two Marines accused of killing another Marine during a hazing episode. The cast consists mostly of males.

"I'm so lucky with my actors this year," says drama coach Tom Sankey, who teaches mathematics at Hebron. "I never had so many talented guys come out for a show before."

The leads in the cast are James Thomas as Lt. Caffee, Holley Hancock as Cmdr. Galloway and Grant Balint as Col. Jessup. Also in the cast are Fawad Khan, Lambros Stamatakis, Eric Grimmel, Greg Walker, Jon Bae, Chad Petri, Brett Cunningham, Andrew Cruttenden, Jason Coburn, Amanda Herold, Sarah Dauber, Marie Stanton, Eli Shearn, Mike Gardner, Frank Wren and Mark Rosenberg.

Tickets cost $5, and early reservations are suggested. Call the school at (410) 313-2880 for details.

Emory United luncheon

Tomorrow is Election Day, and while you're out expressing your preferences, stop by Emory United Methodist Church, where the congregation will serve its annual fall luncheon.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., chicken salad or ham, potato salad, cornballs and green beans will be on sale.

Adult tickets are $6, children ages 6-12 pay $3 and carry-out is $6.50. Children under 6 eat free. The church is on Church Road, off Main Street in historic Ellicott City.

Elementary school artists

St. John's Lane Elementary School congratulates Chris Kinslow, whose artwork graces the cover of the 1996-1997 Student Directory.

The PTA did some hand-wringing to choose his picture over those of the runners-up: fourth-grader Clarissa Bottesini, second-grader Theresa Carr, second-grader Tommy Carr, fourth-grader Jennifer Cascio, first-grader Michael Cascio, third-grader Elly Karadimas, fifth-grader Danny Massa, second-grader Terry Pierelli and fifth-grader Natalie Walterhoefer.

Other artistic endeavors at school include the work of parent volunteers Betsy Kelly and Leslye Schweizer, who spruced up the school's front garden.

Watershed study

At a formal signing ceremony on Oct. 22, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers agreed to a feasibility study on improving the water quality in the waterways and wetlands of the Tiber-Hudson and Deep Run watersheds.

Preliminary research suggests that degradation of the water supply began in the 1800s, when the populations of Elkridge and Ellicott City soared.

The study will consider replacing or creating wetlands, improving wildlife habitat and restoring damaged stream channels.

Cooperation among community groups gained the exposure needed to enlist the Corps of Engineers' help. Kudos to the Department of Planning and Zoning's Marsha McLaughlin, Liz Calia and Steve Shirar and community activists Cynthia Hirshberg of the Tiber-Hudson Partnership and Kathy Hudson of Elkridge Community Association.

The Tiber-Hudson Partnership will celebrate by gathering at 8: 30 a.m. Saturday to plant small trees and shrubs that will provide food and shelter for eastern bluebirds in Ellicott City. All are welcome, but participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Young leaders
