Even though the remnants of Thanksgiving dinner may still be resting in your refrigerator, it is time to start planning for New Year's. If you're not content watching Dick Clark's annual visit to Times Square, perhaps you might enjoy an evening of dancing and dining at Arthur Slade Regional School, 120 Dorsey Road.The school's Band Boosters has organized a New Year's Eve party that may make Mr. Clark wish he had visited Glen Burnie instead of the Big Apple.The fun begins at 8:30 p.m. with light hors d'oeuvres followed by a buffet dinner of honey ham, meatballs, chicken teriyaki, green beans, glazed carrots, scalloped potatoes, salads, rolls and butter and dessert.

Principal Patty Hoffman spoke in a firm but reassuring tone to the teary-eyed third-grader who stood in her office holding a teacher's note and a coloring assignment covered with wayward scrawl. "This isn't the end of the world -- it's just a little blip," the interim leader of Arthur Slade Regional Catholic School told the boy, after getting him to promise he would finish his assignment more carefully. It is with the same balance of authority and compassion that Hoffman has taken charge of the Glen Burnie school since July, when its longtime principal resigned abruptly.

THE LINTHICUM library reopened Monday after being closed for more than a week so new carpeting could be installed. This is the third carpet the library has had since it was built in 1967, according to Adam Mazurek, branch manager. The confetti-like pattern has a blue, gray and white color scheme. Mazurek said that though the library has no plans to buy new furniture and equipment, the color scheme of the new carpeting would allow for easy blending.
