A half-empty former shopping mall in Eldersburg will be remade as a Walmart-anchored plaza under plans announced Monday by owner Black Oak Associates. In a move long awaited by many in the community, the Owings Mills-based developer will spend $50 million to renovate Carrolltown Center into Eldersburg Commons, with new restaurants and home, fashion and beauty retailers. For a decade, Carrolltown Center has been a community sore spot. The interior of the small community mall was closed in 2005, and the property languished with a diminishing roster of tenants and an abandoned movie theater.

The scenario: Four preteens are on an island when a volcano erupts. They have five minutes to get to a nearby island using nothing but a boat, a life raft, a rope, an inflatable ring and their ability to think quickly. The reality: Four fifth-graders are in the Carrolltowne Elementary School gymnasium in Sykesville. Their boat is a scooter board, their life raft a carpet square. The rope is a jump rope and the inflatable ring is a deck tennis ring. The activity was one of many the fifth-graders participated in that day that went beyond their usual studies.

Don't just talk; report prejudice If I understand this correctly, Carroll County Public Schools' administrators are seeking information from ethnic minority parents regarding insensitivity directed toward their children by teachers. This means that CCPS must realize there is a problem of some magnitude to sponsor so many forums. Yet parents are cautioned not to name teachers or schools involved in the incidents. Why are teachers who have discriminated against a student immune to being reprimanded?

Eldersburg parents have revived an 18-year-old effort to enclose Carrolltowne Elementary School's open-space classrooms -- a 1970s-era architectural fad that critics say disrupts student learning and poses a security risk. South Carroll Del. Susan W. Krebs first pushed for constructing walls to hem in Carrolltowne's open pods when her now 22-year-old daughter started kindergarten there.

On a snowy morning last month, 9-year-old Courtney Cole waited in her yard with her mother's camera. Finally, two small birds landed among the snow-covered branches and she snapped the photograph that won her a blue ribbon in Carrolltowne Elementary's annual Media Festival. "I shot in color so you can see the birds better," said Courtney, who will be vying for countywide honors with her entry. An exhibit at the Eldersburg school gave the young photographers a chance to tell the stories accompanying pictures of siblings, pets, waterfalls and wildlife.
