The students stood up and looked around awkwardly. With some coaxing, they formed pairs and faced each other, then put out their hands. "Hi, nice to meet you," said Katie Frager, 11, after shaking the hand of Kerry Wilkes, 13. A little ways off, Monique Walker, 12, shook another student's hand and introduced herself. Then she looked away. "There's nothing to talk about," she said. "I don't know her." They'd get to that, promised Carol Haislip, who was teaching the communication skills class at Mount Airy Middle School.

Prompted by air quality concerns and complaints from parents, Hampstead Elementary School has closed four portable classrooms until Monday while cleaning crews scrub walls, floors, ceilings and desks. The school has shifted the fifth-graders into other spaces in the main school building. An indoor air study was conducted last month by an independent research company after a problem with portables at Mount Airy Middle School last fall prompted a countywide inspection of that type of classroom.

With a color-coded map of the Middle East projected onto the classroom wall, pupils in Greg Nelson's eighth-grade social studies class learned that Iraq is about the size of Texas with less than a tenth of the United States' population. They answered fill-in-the-blank questions about Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's possible links to terrorism. And they used a drawing on a class handout to rate their support for a U.S.-led invasion, marking a spectrum to show whether their views fall closer to the olive branch on the far left or to the bundle of arrows on the right.

"OUT OF SIGHT, out of mind." All too often that is how parents feel about the increasing drug problem among young people in Carroll County. Mike College, a retired Maryland State Police narcotics officer, said society often forgets about heroin use until it becomes front-page news. "Heroin has been here before, and it's still here," he said. College said statistics can't be ignored. Heroin overdose deaths in Carroll County rose from two in 1999 to eight last year. Perhaps more frightening for parents, nine of 10 youths treated at the Carroll County Drug Treatment facility were approached with drugs by friends.
