The evidence is tacked to a bulletin board in a conference room at Bowling Brook Prep. On the left side of the board is the word "academics," and another word "athletics" holds court on the right side.

At Bowling Brook, located in Keymar in western Carroll County, playing sports is nearly as significant as hitting the books.

Hartland Four Corners, Vermont. -- The New Yorker, a Mr. Edwin Morgan, knew nothing of Vermont, but after one of his daughters married a country lawyer from Windsor, he ventured north to see her. The visit was to have a remarkable long-term impact on many lives.Not unlike other New Yorkers before and since, Mr. Morgan found Vermont enchanting. And the land was so cheap! Farms sold for a few dollars an acre, and soon he'd bought one near here. It had a barn, a small brick house, and a wonderful southern view toward Mt. Ascutney.

Carroll County planning officials identified yesterday the four South Carroll subdivisions where development will be halted because of crowded elementary and middle schools. County planners announced last month that they would deny building permits to four proposed developments in Sykesville, Mount Airy and Eldersburg. They delayed naming the subdivisions until they had notified the developers. The subdivisions are: Hood Hills, a 21-lot development on Deer Park Road; Freedom Hills Farms, a 41-lot development on Route 97 near Obrecht Road; the Thompson property, a one-lot development on Old Washington Road; and Pine Brook Farm II, a 36-lot development on Route 97 near Buckhorn Road.
