I am glad that speed cameras have been installed on South Rolling Road. They have encouraged people to drive slower, which helps make it safer for me and other Catonsville High School students who walk to school. I appreciate Del. Jim Malone's and Councilman Tom Quirk's help in getting the cameras installed. It has made a major difference. Brian Neighoff Catonsville High School

This has been an exciting time for Catonsville High School, its football team and the fans in this community. The Catonsville Times has done an excellent job reporting the most recent win and the upcoming game against Poly. We are certainly proud of our team.

Please understand that I am not complaining about speed cameras. If drivers do not wish to have their pictures taken, there is an easy method to avoid the inconvenience: do not speed. I am complaining about the location of a specific speed camera — the one located on South Rolling Road, across the street from Catonsville High School, facing so as to catch speeders heading in the direction of the I-195 Park & Ride. Three times, I've been traveling west-bound when a vehicle set off the camera.

Stopping and preventing smoking is a great thing to do ( "City Council passes smoking ban near playgrounds, athletic fields," March 24). The best prevention is keeping kids from starting. Why not just raise the legal age to smoke to 25? That way it would be illegal for young people to smoke, at least in public. If our government can make me wear a seat belt starting at age 16, or set the legal drinking and voting age at 21, it could do the same for smoking. One thing that has really helped is banning smoking indoors.

I wonder if anyone knows why the power companies seem to have such a hard time keeping the power on in south Catonsville during foul weather. I live near Catonsville High School. During July, power has been interrupted twice, for roughly a total of five hours. That doesn't seem like much, but I have family living near Edmondson Avenue and their power has yet to go out this month. I've lived at my current location for close to 18 years. In all that time, power outages seem to have occurred remarkably more frequently than in any other section of Catonsville.

At a recent Anne Arundel County school board meeting, members bemoaned losing one of the district's most prominent and influential leaders to a neighboring county. They weren't talking about Superintendent Kevin Maxwell's departure to take a similar post in Prince George's County. Instead, they were lamenting the loss of Bill Heiser, the principal of North County High School and recent Principal of the Year honoree, who departed this month to become principal of Catonsville High in Baltimore County.
