Ellie Gonzalez was not thrilled with her time (18:26) in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland cross country championships on Wednesday at Oregon Ridge Park in Hunt Valley. Given that she ran 27 seconds slower than she did on the same course last season, the Catholic High senior's reaction to capturing her third consecutive IAAM overall individual title is understandable. Even so, Gonzalez acknowledged that finishing first by a healthy 1:12 over runner-up Kristen Kohles of A Conference team champion John Carroll is still something special.

Editor: Whatever happened to teen centers, CYOs and high school mixers? How do the teens (16-19) of Harford County socialize these days? Facebook, texting and interactive gaming! They boast about having hundreds, even thousands of Facebook friends, but in reality how many do they actually physically see and do social activities with? There is nothing for most teens to look forward to on the weekends. Of course, there is the mall, spending time in local restaurants, which can be costly!

`TC A Sykesville mother says she doesn't need a feasibility study to know there's a demand for a new Catholic high school in southern Carroll or northern Howard County.But the Archdiocese of Baltimore does need a study, because there is just as loud a cry for an elementary school as for a high school, said Ronald J. Valenti, superintendent of education for the archdiocese.A parent meeting Sept. 26 will be one step in figuring out what to do, Dr. Valenti said."We have to make sure the impetuosity for the building is tempered by the reality, and it's a well-studied, thought-out plan," said Dr. Valenti, adding that the school should be one that will provide at least 10 years of service.

It wasn't scandalous by tabloid standards, but it was a rebellious act for the young women at the Mount Saint Dominic Academy, a small all-girls Catholic high school in New Jersey. Whitney Houston, class of 1981, sometimes wore mismatched socks and rolled up her sleeves. The mischievous gospel singer would then push the maroon-colored dress code just a bit further. She would "roll up her little skirt, just a little bit above the knees, and wouldn't care if she got a detention," said Dr. Maria Pane, who lives in Lutherville and sat next to Houston in high school home room.

Towson Catholic High School's surprise closing this month has left dozens of families scrambling to find new schools for the fall semester. Now the 163 students who had enrolled at the Towson school are scattering, with some heading to Baltimore Lutheran School, others to Catholic schools such as Calvert Hall and Mercy, and still others to public high schools. Some students have not figured out where they're going; and others are pinning their hopes on a court hearing scheduled Friday, when a Baltimore County judge will be asked to block Towson Catholic's closing.

Towson Catholic has long served non-parishioners Monsignor F. Dennis Tinder is all wrong about Towson Catholic High School evolving in recent decades from serving students from the church to drawing students from beyond the parish ("Pastor says he fought to keep school open," July 16). I began [at] Immaculate Conception school in the '40s and graduated from Towson Catholic in 1949, and there were more students there at that time from way beyond the parish than along Belair Road, York Road and Harford Road.

Towson Catholic High School was not the first parochial school in Baltimore to close, and given declining enrollments and a tough economy, it most certainly won't be the last. But it would be hard to imagine a school doing a worse job of handling such a difficult situation. The abrupt announcement, coming less than two months before school is due to resume, left students and faculty alike scrambling to find placements for the fall. The school's leadership made no attempt to reach out to alumni for help before the closure, and it has made no effort since to explain itself to the justifiably angered community.
