New homeowner Ron Morris admits he is "a complete novice when it comes to home improvement." So he signed up for the Fix-It Yourself class at the Glenwood Community Center. "I want to learn the right way to do things instead of paying someone to do simple tasks, and I have been able to apply things [I learned] immediately," Morris said. The Fix-It-Yourself class is just one example of how the community is benefiting from the Glenwood facility, which opened last month to rave reviews. "It has been great.

Baltimore's housing officials have delayed the demolition of part of the former Benjamin Banneker School until early next week after receiving a petition from supporters who want to save the school's West Building, built in 1895.Empty since 1984, the former elementary school at Greenmount Avenue and Federal Street was sold in 1997 by the city to the Baltimore Metropolitan Korean Center. The center plans to transform part of the school into Greenmount Senior Center.The Community Education Expansion Project, a group of alumni, teachers and former staff members, has been trying to persuade the city to save the building since the demolition was proposed.

The Carroll County school system will be one administrator short for at least the rest of this year, with two supervisors picking up the duties of David Miller, who left as head of vocational and technology education for a post in Frederick County.Superintendent R. Edward Shilling told the Board of Education yesterday that he decided not to replace Mr. Miller because of expected reductions of $2.5 million to $3.8 million in money coming from the state.Marjorie Lohnes, formerly supervisor of home economics and health education, will continue to supervise home economics and add most of Mr. Miller's duties to her work load.

Community college will better serve adult learnersWhile the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) would have preferred a smoother "opening day" for the newly adopted Community Education program, we remain enthusiastic about this opportunity to extend our service and expertise ("Registration debacle prompts an apology," Oct. 5).In fact, recent experience leaves us even more optimistic about the future of community education.As The Sun's editorial noted, the "silver lining" to the start-up problems we've experienced is realizing what a tremendous market for lifelong learning exists in our backyard ("CCBC stumble," Oct. 6)

Like any adult who reads a newspaper or watches CNN, I have my own answer to the question "What's wrong with America and how do we fix it?"I don't think we suffer from a breakdown in morality, or from an unwillingness to spend for social programs, or from the host of other political and moral failures my friends see as the flaw in American life. I think our problems stem from not doing enough arithmetic.Notice I didn't say that we lack enough scientific training to compete in world markets.

In the Howard County school board election -- where backgrounds seem to differ more than issues -- the two candidates seem to be the inverse of each other.One is an educator who promises to give the board an insider's perspective on the workings of the school system.The other is a community activist who says her extensive record of working with county leaders and experience as a planner will ** help the school board get things done.Both are largely outsiders in the other's world and can point to examples to prove it.Even as Jane Schuchardt and Francine Wishnick differ more and more in their positions on the issues, the race to replace Susan Cook on the Howard school board comes down to a choice between candidates of different backgrounds.
