"It is not a quick thing. You've got to build confidence and respect.

As a physician at the April 11 public hearing on proposed changes in the HCPSS Wellness Policy, I left with an appreciation for the articulate students who expressed concern about the nutrition value of some foods offered in school during and after classes. A Centennial High student thanked Booster Club efforts to fund uniforms and trips for athletic teams.    Clearly we have in Howard County extraordinarily committed students, adults and...

"I understand you earned an 'A' for your first day of high school parenting," my friend said.We sat in the kitchen, savoring the privacy that followed a very long, very hot summer.Yes, I did quite well. There were no tears as I watched my son leave for his first day at Glen Burnie High. Evidently we were both mature enough for the big day.I didn't follow the school bus even though I couldn't help but notice the bus driver was wearing a Grateful Dead T-shirt.I even refrained from stopping by the cafeteria at lunch time with a Chicken McNugget Happy Meal.

Every football season, another layer is added to the Long Reach-River Hill rivalry, which began when the two schools opened. The series continues Friday when the Hawks visit Long Reach at 7 p.m. Last season, the Lightning took a 15-14 win during the regular season on its way to the county championship before the Hawks avenged the loss with a 21-13 victory in the Class 3A East semifinals. "This game means everything to us. You can put the records aside; this is a rivalry with no love lost - they want to beat us, and we want to beat them, and it's been that way since we opened together 11 years ago," said Long Reach coach Pete Hughes.

HAMMOND HIGH School's Golden Bears will sport new colors this fall. For 25 years, the school's athletic teams and bands have worn brown and gold, but as Hammond moves into its next quarter-century, its colors will be maroon and gold, Principal Sylvia Patillo said. The Golden Bears include all the school's athletic teams. "Brown was chosen by the original principal 25 years ago," explained Ben Sandler, Booster Club treasurer. "In those days, it was probably more popular. But it has been a long time since brown has been a stock color."

"If You Think You Can, You Can" may well be the motto of Hammond High School's Booster Club. Sharon Lea, booster club president, reported to the school's PTSA at the October meeting that the club raised $13,000 between February and June.Hammond was the only county high school (there are eight) that did not have a booster club. But once they were organized, the club members succeeded in a big way. Last month the money was given to 22 clubs, organizations, activities and programs in HHS: Little Bear Nursery, Maryland's Tomorrow, Cross Country, Class of '92, Black Awareness, Art Department/Art Club, Academic Awards Night, Band/Jazz Combo/Jazz Ensemble, Bear Press, Drama, Field Hockey, Class of '95, Class of '96, It's Academic, Photography, Girls' Soccer, Boys Soccer, Special Education, Speech and Debate, Photography and Math Club.

TCHale boosterThis is in response to Patty Perkins' letter regarding the Blast Booster Club and Ed Hale. I feel she should get all her facts before writing such a negative letter. Mr. Hale in no way insulted the booster club by creating his own fan club. Mr. Hale was very diplomatic and graceful toward certain booster-club officers who, while supposedly representing the Blast Booster Club, were seen wearing Wichita jerseys. This is not the way executive officers should act. While representing the booster club, they should be supporting the Blast.

Partisanship is the hallmark of Glendening's rule The Sun's article "Glendening relishes role outside Md." (Sept. 16) noted that Gov. Parris N. Glendening plans to devote his last year in office to campaigning for Democrats. That's nothing new. For the past seven years, Mr. Glendening has acted more like governor of the Democratic Party than governor of Maryland. His budgets have overwhelmingly favored Democratic constituencies. He has appointed an overwhelmingly Democratic judiciary and used "Smart Growth" to attack jurisdictions such as Carroll County that vote Republican.

A PARENT spent $500 to reserve a parking place for his or her high schooler. Another gave $320 for special seating at graduation. (Makes you wonder where you'd sit for $20. Sounds like graduation wasn't actually expected and must now be celebrated big-time.) Okay, okay, it was all part of a fundraiser sponsored by the River Hill High School booster club. Marquee event: the raffling of a $27,000 automobile (obtained at discount). One of the school's seniors won it. When the ticket sales netted less than the car's lowered price, boosters chose to award the grand prize anyway.

For the second day in a row, Howard High School's gym was empty and its boys basketball team was left to ponder just when - if at all - its 2000-01 season might continue. On Monday, the Howard County school board overturned the hiring of coach Derrick Dunlap, who coached the team during its first two games of the season, and awarded the job to Howard special education teacher Greg Smith. Two board members said that upon Smith's appeal, the change was made because Dunlap, who teaches fifth grade at Burnie Elementary in Washington, did not work in the high school, and Smith should have been given priority during the hiring process in accordance with county policy.

The first taste of winter roared into Howard County last week with a portent of further cold. Kids awoke to a light covering of snow on the ground, and the sight of large snowflakes falling from the sky promised even more.The closing of the schools sent many kids scurrying to the basement for their sleds. They were filled with visions of a day spent racing down snow-covered slopes. Unfortunately, the snow soon changed to rain, and the fluffy white cover quickly turned to dingy gray slush.
