They spend hours with gizmos and gadgets, though it's unlikely most Howard County high school students spend much time questioning how the products they love go from idea to "must have. " Yet surely some students have pondered whether they, too, could conjure up the next great innovation. Students from Centennial High School's Future Business Leaders of America organization say they'd like to hear about some of those innovations. They've created the Blue Ocean Competition, an entrepreneurial event that allows student teams to compete by generating an idea, product or service - and an initial plan for how they would bring it to market.

Tyler Johnson had been clean for more than two years, he wrote on his Facebook page. The 25-year-old Mount Airy man made a point of seeking out other struggling addicts, was active in local 12-step programs and spoke to high school students and young adults about living a sober life, friends said. But his life was cut short Saturday morning when he and Brianna Benlolo, 21, were killed in a shooting at Zumiez, the skate shop where they worked in the Mall in Columbia.

At their teacher's suggestion, some Centennial High School students are closing their eyes in class and taking their minds off academic subjects. They are relaxing instead of sitting tensely on the edge of their chairs. And they are thinking positive thoughts instead of stressing over a coming test, a lower-than-expected grade, or a social or emotional challenge they may be facing in one of Howard County's many top-performing schools. To help them feel grounded, they are focusing on their breathing and their feet.

The Centennial High School junior's passion for the past began about seven years ago, when she attended the Victorian Dreams camp - a week-long camp through Howard County's Department of Recreation and Parks that recreated Victorian life in the 1850s. Abdow's interest grew through middle school when she researched the Patapsco Female Institute, a once nationally renowned girl's school in Ellicott City, and then presented her work during Howard County Public Schools' Middle School Achievement Expo.

Displaying his characteristic courage, Zach Lederer bravely attempts to recreate the notorious strongman pose - biceps flexed and fists clenched - that turned a 2012 photo of his steely-eyed resolve to fight cancer into an Internet craze called "Zaching. " But debilitating weakness on the left side of his body, caused by swelling on the right side of his brain after treatment for a third brain tumor, has left him unable to raise his atrophied left arm above his chest.
