The fourth graders at Glen Burnie Park Elementary School had strong reactions the first time many of them heard the Maryland state song, a rousing Civil War era tune. An Thai, a 10-year-old, said the song struck her as "too long and unpleasant." Kewannie Edwards said he was confused. The song had harsh words for Abraham Lincoln, celebrated as one of the country's great presidents. "It called Abraham Lincoln a despot," said Edwards, 9. "It was mean." So the students wrote to their local legislators, including Del. Pamela G. Beidle, who ultimately agreed with her young constituents and crafted legislation to get rid of the 70-year-old state song, "Maryland, My Maryland," and replace it with a shorter and tamer song.

The Anne Arundel County school board voted yesterday to move forward with a proposal to create a regional "early childhood center" for 4-year-olds and 5-year-olds on the site of dilapidated Ferndale Elementary School, opening the issue to a public hearing in coming weeks. The board declined requests for public hearing from three communities seeking to redistrict their children to other schools. Board member Paul Rudolph introduced motions on behalf of two of the groups, but they failed because of a lack of support from the board.

Some Glen Burnie residents were not amused last week when they heard of a developer's plans to build a "fun park" near Ritchie Highway that would include go-carts and paintball. They'll take their concerns today to a county zoning officer. Les Jenkins, developer of the proposed Les Jenkins Family Fun Park, is seeking a special exception to build the park in a commercially zoned district near Dover Road and Ritchie Highway. The developer also has applied for a variance to build the park on the site, which is farther from a freeway than allowed for an amusement park.

THE MORE MY kids tell me how different life is now from when I was a kid, the more I'm convinced they are wrong. The transition between summer and school is one example.Little variation exists with school supplies. My daughters' lists include the same No. 2 pencils, folders and loose-leaf paper that mine did.And the anxieties are the same. What teacher will I have? Who will be in my class? What kind of clothes will everybody else be wearing?And speaking of clothes, even they aren't all that different.
