TEENS WHO LOVE to perform will present an "SGA Talent Show" from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at Shiloh Middle School, 3675 Willow St., Hampstead. Talent shows in North Carroll have a reputation for being well-received. Seats typically are sold out.

This, the first talent show for the new middle school, includes humorous, vocal, dance and theatrical acts.

Top of the list for humor are male pupils Ian Monfred and Brian Head impersonating pop female vocalists Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

Four Oompa-Loompas, fresh from a performance of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" at North Carroll High School last month, will present a lifestyle routine of the fictional chocolate workers. Performers are Laura Schaefer, Lindsay Harman, Kristen Duling and Candice Roe.

Vocal solos will be given by Kristi Scherbarth, Brittany Poist and Rebekah Friedrich. Groups performing song-and-dance routines include Krista Ford and Lauren Trail; Angela Boos, Sarah Fisher and Brittany Mann; and Brittany Poist, Rachel Kemp and Katie Hursey, offering a theme from "Annie."

"Canon" by Pachelbel will be performed by Nikia Sayre on electric violin and Katelyn Jarkowiec on cello. Other instrumentalists include Ian Monfred on guitar accompanying Matt Grice, soloist; and Mike Lentino, piano soloist.

Dance numbers will be performed by Rachel Kenney and Rachel Kemp, a dance with baton by Ashton Spenner, and singing with acrobatic dance by Nate Gonzalez and Mike Meagher. The dance ensemble of Brittni Stallings, Amanda Pickard, Lauren Myers and Nicole Clark will perform.

Talent show proceeds will benefit the Student Government Association at Shiloh Middle. Tickets are $4 for adults, $3 for high school age and below, and free for age 5 and younger.

Seeing politics at work

Jennifer Crumbaugh of Upperco will enter Mary Washington College in Virginia as a political science major. This spring, she whetted her appetite by spending two weeks as a page working for Carroll County delegates at the State House in Annapolis. Her volunteer stint ended in mid-March.

"I was a go-for, doing errands, getting bills, signatures, delivering messages, and sometimes attending committee meetings or hearings," said Jennifer, 17, an honor student at North Carroll High School.

She received the position based on an essay about how she became interested in politics. One student from each Carroll County high school is selected each year, and in Annapolis they meet student pages from across the state.

The pages room with Annapolis-area families for a week at a nominal cost. Jennifer was scheduled to spend a week at home to make up missed schoolwork between her two weeks at the State House.

Jennifer said she "was shown the ropes" by Del. Joseph M. Getty and enjoyed working with Dels. Carmen Amedori and Nancy R. Stocksdale.

"It was a wonderful opportunity to dig into the political world," Jennifer said.

Technology display

Pupils of Shiloh Middle School will display technology in the school and how they have learned to use it during a interpretive display from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Displays will be prepared throughout the school, and pupils will demonstrate how the systems work.

Shiloh Middle School opened in August with state-of-the-art computer technology in every classroom and special subject area. G. Thomas Hill is principal. The school PTO will meet at 7 p.m., after the technology open house.

Used book sale

A "Previously Loved Book Sale" is being held by Sunday School of Trinity United Church of Christ, 3229 York St., Manchester.

The sale of donated books will be held Sunday and April 29.
