Riverside-area parents are frustrated because they say the school system is stonewalling them by refusing to say when construction on Church Creek Elementary School will resume.The school was to have been completed Aug. 15 but education officials announced in April that the building, at Riverside Parkway and Church Creek Road, would not open until the start of school next year. Officials cited earlier construction problems with the compactibility of soil beneath the building."I'm real tired of being patient and understanding," said Pat Benedict, who lives in Riverside and has two children who would attend Church Creek.

Stacey Sewell vividly remembers her physical education teacher. Sewell said she thought the teacher had the greatest job. "I watched her and thought that her job was more exciting than an academic teacher," Sewell said. So it seemed only fitting that she would become a physical education teacher. Twelve years later, Sewell has made her mark in physical education. Later this month, she will receive the Simon McNeely Award from the Maryland Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.

It all began with a birthday invitation in February to a second-grade pen pal class in Minnesota. Abby Schultheis, a pupil at Church Creek Elementary School in Belcamp, thought it would be fun if her class could meet their pen pals. "It was pretty much all my idea," said Abby, who turned 8 on May 24. However, she didn't realize the amount of hard work it would take to make her birthday wish a reality. With an outpouring of community support and fund raising, the Cass Lake-Bena Elementary School pupils, residents of the Leech Lake Indian Reservation and members of the Ojibwa tribe, made her wish come true.
