Lyndsey Darling and Erin Stump huddled on the beach Friday at Sandy Point State Park, sipping cups of hot chocolate and looking skeptical. Both wore sweatshirts and boots, but within an hour they planned to swap their heavy layers for bathing suits and wade into the Chesapeake Bay, kicking off the weekend of the 17th annual Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge. Stump, 15, said the swim was against her better judgment, but Darling, 16, had one idea to stay warm. "I'm going to wear my socks," she said, "because I've got another pair.

A small-town school in Harford County made the big time Tuesday, when the popular band from a Nickelodeon TV show played the gym at St. Margaret's School in Bel Air. The event had all the trappings of a rock concert — enthusiastic fans, infectious music and Big Time Rush, a Minnesota-based pop group with four-part harmonies and energetic dance moves that have made them the darlings of the pre-teen set. The students won a contest to host the...

The classrooms at Hebbville Elementary School on Baltimore County's west side got so hot this year that 8-year-old Cameron Harris' mother sometimes took him out of school early on especially muggy afternoons. "When I hear him complaining about not being able to breathe and feeling like he wants to explode, it scares me," said Sheila Harris, whose son just completed second grade at the Woodlawn-area school.

When the smash 2006 TV movie High School Musical suddenly burst out of its box on the Disney Channel into the open, lucrative hearts of seemingly every tween girl in America, you'd have thought Disney Theatrical Productions would have been champing at the bit to turn the megahit into a Broadway-style show. But Musical's journey from the small screen to the live stage has been anything but a slam-dunk. To work for Disney is to fall victim to stereotyping. That's at least partly why the people who run Disney Theatricals - the studio's live-entertainment arm - are intensely preoccupied with artistic legitimacy.

"There are no real loose dollars hanging around," said Superintendent Carol S. Parham. "If the board directed me to find the money, yes [I could], but it comes from someone else, from someone else's project." Engelbretson and a committee of west county parents have been working for months to raise money to cool the two schools.

Tired of seeing their children come home from hot, sweaty days spent in west county schools without air conditioning - and tired of waiting for the Anne Arundel County school board to pay to install a cooling system - parents from Arundel middle and high schools are raising money for the work themselves. Parents from Arundel Middle School in Odenton have collected $12,000, putting them well on their way to their goal of air conditioning the top floor by the time school resumes in the fall.
