The voice of William C. Schultheis echoed off stone walls and clapboard Dickeyville homes on July 4th mornings. He spoke through a bullhorn as he led his neighborhood's annual history walk along nearly forgotten mill sites, abandoned streetcar lines and a jail. His audience offered no objections when the history lesson lasted two hours. The retired Baltimore teacher died of lung cancer Wednesday at the Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. He was 70. Born and raised in Frostburg, he was a Beall High School graduate.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. was supposed to teach an English class yesterday at a Baltimore high school. Mayor Martin O'Malley and his police commissioner had called a news conference to praise the effectiveness of the city's crime fighting efforts. Instead they all found themselves answering, and asking, questions about another city teenager who had been shot to death. "Why the violence?" Ehrlich asked a classroom of Lake Clifton High School seniors. In their responses, the students offered the governor rare insight into how violence, particularly the murder this week of a classmate, affects their perceptions of the city.

Tension and emotion from a large crowd spilled over onto the basketball court last night at Lake Clifton High School as spectators twice threw objects onto the floor, forcing school administrators to suspend the boys game between No. 1 Douglass and No. 8 Lake Clifton. Lake Clifton principal Veronica Brown made the decision to call the game between the Baltimore City rivals after a discussion with officials. The contest was stopped near the end of the third quarter with Douglass leading, 53-41, when someone threw a can of soda onto the court.

Glen Mendels, Baltimore: According to The Sun, under the [former] administration of Superintendent Robert Booker, the city schools system overspent its budget by $33 million, and ended the year with a $18.8 million deficit. It appears that the deficit began under Booker's administration, since the system had a surplus for the two previous fiscal years. Could you identify where the system overspent funds under the Booker administration? Bowie: The largest area of overspending was on a computer management system that had millions in cost overruns.

There's not much in the way of physical evidence to mark Room D112 as School No. 426's Student Court: It's a former science lab furnished with a few chairs and tables and an old sectional sofa. But a few afternoons a week, the place takes on the formality of a courtroom as stone-faced "jurors" arrange themselves on the sofa, and a "judge" with an authoritative baritone voice calls the Student Court to order. It is here that students who violate school rules come to find leniency - or at the very least, avoid being suspended or expelled.

There were only two days left before the big show at the Lake Clifton-Eastern High School complex, and things were not exactly as Christina Youngston would have liked them to be. The clock in the vast, seldom-used auditorium was frozen at 11:48. Only four of the stage lights were in working condition; the rest were bulbless, collecting dust on a shelf. There was still no sign of the microphones or costumes someone had agreed to provide for the show. But Youngston, the volunteer director of School No. 426's drama club, set aside those worries as her 15 actors gathered on the dimly lit stage to warm up. Together, they swung their arms, rolled their heads from side to side and blew raspberries to loosen their lips.
