Carroll County deserves its own community college. It should not be content having an appendage of the Baltimore County system. For a rapidly growing metropolitan county, such as Carroll, and for a college with a rapidly expanding enrollment, such as the county's two-year community college, that much should be clear.Independence from Catonsville Community College, of which Carroll Community College is now a branch, would give the Carroll education center more state aid and also would give Carroll citizens more control over the institution's curriculum and budget.

The economy, jobs creation, and unemployment continue to be in the national and state news these days. Locally, the business and economic climate has changed in the last few years. To be certain, change has been a constant dynamic in the local economy since the beginnings of our county in the 1700s. The one thing that has remained the same in spite of all the changes, is that agriculture continues to be a major industry in Carroll. But one agricultural product many younger readers may not be familiar with that has not withstood the test of time is an ancient medicine known for its distinctive, unpleasant smell - wormseed.

Harford Community College students would see tuition rise $12 per credit hour under the school's proposed operating budget for next year, while Carroll Community College wants to raise tuition $5 per credit hour. Officials at the Harford school said they need to close a structural deficit and to offset flat state and county funding. Their proposed $47.8 million operating budget was given to the members of the HCC Board of Trustees at their most recent monthly meeting on Dec. 10. The proposed budget includes an increase of about $800,000, or 2 percent compared to this year's spending level of $47 million, but the tuition increase amounts to a 7.6 percent increase for county residents who attend HCC. The $12 increase would raise the tuition per credit hour for Harford County residents from $92 to $104, with similar increases for out-of-county and out-of-state students to $191 and $278 per credit hour, respectively.

An hour before Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama squared off on national television on Oct. 3, the pre-presidential-debate debate got under way at Carroll Community College, with one student speculating out loud, "I wonder when the shoe-throwing is going to start?" Not to worry — no shoes, rotten tomatoes, spitballs, mean-spirited invectives or anything else went airborne. In fact, the hour-long debate, which featured a seven-member panel representing the county Republican and Democratic central committees, the Carroll County League of Women Voters, the Libertarian Party and We, The People — a local offshoot of the Tea Party movement — was cordial.

The speaker was introduced as Pastor David Whitney to an audience of about 50 county employees in a lecture hall at Carroll Community College, but he made no attempt to proselytize. "I am honored to be with people who care about their country," said Whitney, the pastor of a Pasadena church who frequently lectures for the Institute on the Constitution. "I commend the county commissioners for having the foresight to offer you an opportunity to study the supreme law of the state.
