The South County Senior Center invited some four-legged guests to a party, and a few of the critters left the festivities for new homes. The center in Edgewater staged its annual SPCA fundraiser and adoption day last week. Members raised money with a raffle, a book signing and a stuffed-animal sale that came complete with birth certificates for purchasers. The SPCA, based in Annapolis, showed off four of its potential adoptees, all on their best behavior, and representatives spoke of the wealth of health, safety and emotional benefits derived by those who share their homes with pets and demonstrated how a trained dog can assist people with disabilities.

Come August, students at crowded North County and Arundel Senior High schools are likely to be allowed to pick another high school in the county to attend.That unusual freedom is being prompted by such a press of bodies in the two schools -- in the next school year North County will be 180 students over capacity and Arundel 240 -- that if everyone stays in place there will be no room for them all to sit, do school work, eat lunch or hang up their coats.With possible construction of a new high school in West Anne Arundel County a long way off, Superintendent Carol S. Parham proposed allowing students to transfer out of the crush and into less-crowded high schools if students arrange their own transportation.

Decked out in her most patriotic costume, Flo Keeny arrived ready to wow the audience at an Annapolis retirement home with her part in the South County Showstoppers revue. With less than 30 minutes until curtain time, a change in the lineup had this 77-year-old hoofer dashing for home to retrieve another costume. Her act suddenly shifted from Broadway's "Yankee Doodle Dandy" to a graceful hula and sweet song reflecting on a little grass shack in Hawaii. Instead of tapping across the stage in red, white and blue, she swiveled smoothly in traditional island garb.

An All-Metro receiver in football, Brandon Johnson-Farrell also is one of the key players on Arundel's surging basketball team. Johnson-Farrell was one of the leaders on Arundel's Class 4A state runner-up in football and now is one of the leaders on the basketball team that is ranked No. 13 and is 10-2 after going 13-11 last year. His speed, quickness and instincts are as noticeable on the court as they were on the football field. Johnson-Farrell does a lot of things for the basketball team, as he did last week in the Wildcats' 89-74 win at No. 14 Old Mill.

Arundel baseball player Corey Overholtzer has had more than his share of disappointing injuries over the past two seasons since transferring from Riverdale Baptist. "I've had absolutely the worst luck you can have on the baseball diamond," Overholtzer said. "It hurts even more watching my team play and having to sit out when all I really want to do is play baseball." The injuries have come late in the season. The senior missed last season's postseason run by the Wildcats to the Class 4A state final, and the talented left-handed-hitting outfielder's availability for the coming playoffs were uncertain going into this week.

At 6 feet 4, Arundel senior forward Justin Kondos is hard to miss on a soccer field. It's more than just his slender build, though, that warrants notice. He's fast and smooth and displays a poised confidence when he's on the ball, whether it's at his feet or in the air. And he always has company - one defender by his side with others often close by. As one of the county's most dynamic offensive players, Kondos can score, assist or simply draw attention to free up teammates for chances - always doing something that gives defenses fits and helps the Wildcats win. "He's someone you just worry about because he's so versatile," said Broadneck coach Sean Tettemer.
