I was stoked at the thought of capturing video and still images one recent morning as Leif Cogswell unstuck the wooden arms of the 25-foot-diameter southern-facing dial at Baltimore's famed Bromo-Seltzer clock Tower. City residents tend to take the long-standing tower for granted, barely batting an eye at the structure that was completed in 1911 and resembles the Palazzo Vecchio's tower in Florence, Italy. The city owns the tower and is renovating space inside for possible use as studio space by city artists.

It took some persistance from a local activist to extract the whole story behind the school superintendent's contract imbroglio.Over and over again since August, Wayne Cogswell has asked the Carroll County school board:Why did the board say it couldn't, by law, release the superintendent's contract, and then do it anyway? And why did it reverse that position last month and propose a policy to make contracts public for all future superintendents?Yesterday, Mr. Cogswell got his answer, but not without some more pressing.

Kenwood HighSince the headline-grabbing student walk-out of this past spring, very little has been printed about the situation at Kenwood High School in Essex.At the time, it was reported that the student protest had been sparked by Principal Fred Cogswell's announcement concerning zero-based staffing, in which all teachers at Kenwood would be required to re-apply for their own jobs.The result of this action, which has gone unreported in the press, is that no less than 36 teachers at Kenwood will not be returning next year.
