HOWARD COMMUNITY COLLEGE is not accustomed to selecting new presidents, so you'll have to excuse its board for being a bit rusty as it goes through the process. It has been 16 years since the 27-year-old institution last conducted this exercise, and that was but the second time it had to choose a new leader.Dwight A. Burrill looked for all the world like he would be HCC president for life.He's only 57, has roots in the community as immutable as those of the tall trees that surround the Columbia campus and has become a visible part of Howard County's business scene.

Dwight A. Burrill has announced that he is retiring as president of Howard Community College, a post he had held for the past 16 years."I'm going to take some time to step back and evaluate what I want to do with the rest of my life," the 57-year-old resident of the Columbia neighborhood of Hobbits Glen said yesterday. "I might do some business of some sort, but right now, I don't know what that would be."Burrill, whose retirement from the $120,000-a-year post takes effect Sept. 1, is the second president in the college's 27-year history.

LET'S GET THIS STRAIGHT: Howard Community College trustees have appointed an acting president to lead the campus until they choose an interim president to serve until they select a permanent president.This is one step too many in the process of choosing a leader to replace Dwight A. Burrill, who served for 16 years at the west Columbia school before his retirement took effect Monday. Worse, it is a waste of time and money.There is no need to have two people serving in acting and interim capacities -- terms that are usually synonymous.

President for Life.That title someday may prove true for Dwight A. Burrill, who has led Howard Community College from adolescence to maturity, built firm roots in Columbia and tried -- unsuccessfully -- to build a local business base for himself.A year and a half ago, though, Burrill's future seemed far less certain.He hinted in a September 1994 interview in the school newspaper, the Times, that he might leave. The school was beginning an effort to raise private funds and Burrill wondered whether he was through.

Here's probably the only fact you need to know about JimmyO and April Monique Burril: They were married on Halloween 1998 in costume. She was dressed as some sort of demented fairy-type thing, he as a werewolf. Need another fact? Try this one: They've made a movie together, Chainsaw Sally, that has nothing to do with chopping wood. Yep, they're one of those couples. "In this neighborhood, we're definitely the weirdos on the corner," says April, 32, chatting amiably at the dining-room table of their Perryville home, an unassuming end-of-the-row duplex a stone's heave from where the Susquehanna River flows through town.

Think of it as the biotechnology industry's New Year's hangover. After partying through last year with a record 67 initial public offerings in the sector, a number of newly public biotechnology companies might see shares dive - or at least dip - in the first part of this year. The reason: Company insiders and many large shareholders suddenly will be freed from "lockup" periods that have prohibited them from trading their shares. The lockup expirations, which generally come six months after an initial public offering, could result in a flood of shares hitting the market.

In another sign that the market for biotechnology stocks has revived, Gaithersburg-based Gen- Vec Inc., a developer of gene-based drugs, has filed for the second time to go public. GenVec had filed for an initial public stock offering in May 1998, only to shelve those plans when the market for biotechnology stocks soured. Company officials were not available for comment on the filing last night. However, in a news release issued late yesterday, the firm said that it had filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, a necessary step for companies seeking to go public.

If any theme will mark the biotechnology industry in the coming year, says industry expert G. Steven Burrill, it likely will be this: The big will grow larger while the small struggle on. Only this year, the struggle shouldn't be quite as exhausting. That said, the industry should also find a friendlier investor climate, predicts Burrill, chief executive officer of San Francisco-based merchant bank Burrill & Co., a major biotechnology industry investor. Already this year investors have been flocking back to the industry.

Howard Community College officials are considering a tuition increase that would cost the average student anywhere from $35 to $140 more each semester starting next fall.The increase is built into a $15.2 million budget for fiscal 1993 that HCC President Dwight Burrill unveiled to the school's Board of Trustees last week.The school's growing enrollment, which increased 10 percent last fall, is requiring HCC to hire more faculty and expand resources, Burrill said.The budget, which represents an 8.4 percent increase, calls for hiring 10 new faculty members and purchasing approximately $254,000 in new equipment and software.

Fledgling biotechnology companies struggling to get money at home might have better luck overseas if they know how to work out a partnership with a foreign firm.Industry specialists, speaking at a World Trade Center Institute seminar yesterday, said the foreign market presents some pitfalls to new companies, but can be a source of capital to get a new company started.G. Steven Burrill, international director for manufacturing and high technology industry services with Ernst & Young, said domestic sources of venture capital have started to dry up and private sources of capital have always been skimpy.

These are heady days for scientists at biotechnology companies as they take part in what many see as a remarkable revolution in our understanding of disease and efforts to develop treatments for scourges like cancer and spinal cord injuries.But for the executives charged with running many of these ventures, these are days of fret and worry: As their companies burn up cash, traditional sources of financing such as venture capital and the stock market have gone bone dry."It's really dismal," said Robert Curtis, chief executive officer of Baltimore-based Lion Pharmaceuticals Inc. The company was born two years ago as the nation's first biotech venture focused on commercializing discoveries at a major university, in this case the Johns Hopkins University's School of Medicine.
