"I asked Commissioner (Richard) Rothschild to come debate me on education, but that didn't work out," Howard said, referring to his fellow commissioner from District 4 who advocates for cuts to the county school budget that Howard opposes.

After a summer of busy construction and renovation, school systems in Anne Arundel, Howard and Carroll counties welcomed back nearly 150,000 students for the first day of classes yesterday - and for the most part, everything fell into place. Even the most serious problem - a power outage that shut off the lights at Worthington Elementary School in Ellicott City - didn't stop the day's lessons. Teachers and administrators used the light of yesterday's bright sun to keep the classrooms illuminated and didn't call off school.

Despite spending a year away from football, Tyrice Rock of Century High School seemingly hasn't missed a beat, and is having a season that most players only dream about. The senior Knight leads Carroll County in rushing attempts and yardage, and his 20 touchdowns far outdistance the current runner-up, Westminster wide receiver Garrett Bean. He has exceeded the 100-yard rushing mark in six of Century's seven games, and has gone for more than 200 yards four times. Even with a tough performance Friday against Westminster, Rock still has a chance to break the all-time Carroll records for rushing yardage and touchdowns.
