The Anne Arundel County Council's "slashing" of funding to Anne Arundel Community College is hardly an example of local leaders responsibly dealing with difficult times ("Arundel takes a balanced approach," May 26). The council decided in private and quickly voted for an unprecedented $5.2 million cut in funding for fiscal 2012. They held a public hearing only after approving it. During the present economic crisis, enrollment at AACC has continued to increase because students want affordable programs that prepare them for higher paying, more professional jobs.

It's late on a steamy August morning. Forty scholars and their lecturer have been at their studies for a couple of hours. One of the more challenging courses in the summer program at Anne Arundel Community College is already well under way. But there are no desks or chalkboard. The classroom is a gym, and six young people are walking the floor on stilts. Eight more spin plates on sticks, and one weaves his way through the commotion on a bicycle the size of a ringmaster's hat. Welcome to Circus Camp, a five-day, 40-hour expedition through the big-top arts in which comedy is king, the teacher is a clown and the students — county children between the ages of 7 and 14 — will be able to conquer the course material only if they can manage not to take themselves too seriously.
