"Here's the deal," he said to the waiter. "I want a mushroom burger with Cheddar cheese instead of Swiss. No, forget it. Let's do the old English burger with lettuce, tomato and onion, which I see there."See, Dexter Manley was reading the menu. Dexter, who graduated from high school and stayed eligible to play four years at Oklahoma State when he couldn't read, then starred with the Washington Redskins, could handle Houlihans' menu. He made more sense than the waiter, actually."I can read my own book," said Dexter, and proceeded to open it to a random passage and read it. It tells how he got the courage to go to the Lab School in Washington for help learning to read because it was too painful not to.The book is "Educating Dexter," which is the sequel to the locker-room whispers of "Dexter can't read."

There are always studies showing how many people are obese and overweight. Well if more places around the world had free classes, such as yoga or biking, more people would be out getting into shape. It all comes down to money: People who have enough money can buy memberships in order to work out, but people that lack money are unable to do so. When one doesn't work out they will only gain weight. No matter how healthy you eat, there are many factors that contribute to how healthy you live in life.

Recent articles and editorials touched on some of the relationship between school hours and suspension rates and teenagers' biological clocks and the benefits of keeping kids in school ("How early is too early for high school students," March 8; "Suspension as a last resort," March 5). But they omitted any discussion of how high school students should be spending their afternoons. By the end of eleventh grade, the average public school student in Maryland has acquired most of the credits that they will need to graduate.

Baltimore County schools spokesman Charles Herndon told The Sun there is no empirical evidence that class size is linked to student achievement ("Smaller Balto. Co. class sizes urged," May 150). But if that's true, then why did officials limit class sizes at the lowest-performing high schools, where smaller classes were deemed important for struggling students? The answer is that they, like everyone else other than maybe Mr. Herndon, recognize the simple truth that bigger classes make it harder for students to learn.

Legends of the Fog 500 Carsins Run Road, Aberdeen Years open: 8 Open: Fridays through Sundays through Nov. 1 (and Oct. 30); tickets from $25; legendsofthefog.com. First impressions: Legends of the Fog stops just shy of being a full-blown festival-style amusement park situated in the middle of a massive corn field. With an entry area featuring horror-ific midway games like "Zombie Ball" and a "Coffin Ride," alongside a fire pit for warmth/teenage makeout sessions and food trucks for pre-terror sustenance, the atmosphere is pretty family friendly.

While I was completing my undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins University in the mid-1970s, I took several sociology and psychology classes including one on psychotropic drugs. I was surprised to find Baltimore police officers in my classes. I was glad to see them, but their naïveté and seeming lack of common sense based on their comments and questions in class led me to hope that by the end of their education they would have a better understanding of the need for compassion in their dealings with city residents ( "Require college degrees for police," Sept.

Yoga enthusiast Riley Porter has sharpened his tree pose taking classes at Ellicott City's Gogo Guru Yoga Studio & Store. Riley is 8 years old. His mom, Jeni Porter, says her son's interest in yoga began when he was 5.  “He heard that all football players and baseball players also study yoga. He thought it was cool,” says Porter, who took yoga while she was pregnant with Riley. “There's a lot of movements [in yoga] that are similar to shooting a basketball.” Kids' yoga classes are just one example of the niche offerings Howard County studios are developing in an effort to expand their appeal to a wider audience.

To write it has been an impressive start for the boys and girls soccer teams at McDonogh is a huge understatement. Both teams won their respective conference championships last season -- the boys winning the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and the girls winning the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference -- and both left last season and started this season as the area's No. 1 teams. Both teams are constant targets -- knock off McDonogh and a season can be made.

Main Street is finding its inner peace. After opening Gogo Guru, a women's yoga and fitness clothing shop, in Historic Ellicott City in November 2012, Hilary Brich expanded her operation with a yoga studio in February. Brich's original plan was to simply provide the shop's patrons with information about where in the neighborhood they could practice yoga. But with most of the studios being more than a few miles away, she noticed a problem. “People kept asking where to do yoga but didn't want to go farther away than they had to,” says Brich.
