Working with Anne Arundel County schools, an independent foundation helped feed needy children and their families for more than five years. But that came to an abrupt halt a year ago, after a member of the Journey Foundation reviewing the organization's bank records saw that more than $3,700 was missing. Within months, the foundation was defunct, and one of its founders, then a teacher a Corkran Middle School in Glen Burnie, was charged with stealing from it. On June 11, a tearful Pamela Fowler pleaded guilty to felony theft from the foundation that was the brainchild of her and her brother, jazz musician Norman Evans, whose annual spring concerts raised thousands of dollars for Journey.

Students at Corkran Middle School in Anne Arundel County had quite the exercise routine Tuesday. They ran agility drills on their school field with Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk. They stretched with Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo. They high-fived Gov. Martin O'Malley. And they heard repeatedly from some of their sports heroes that they should get out from in front of the computer and TV and get some exercise. Shannon Thomas, an eighth-grade student, bounced excitedly as she watched her classmates run and jump.

Instead of building a controversial $3.1 million bypass near Corkran Middle School in Glen Burnie, the county should reroute traffic by making part of Thelma Avenue and Old Stage Road one way, a task force has advised County Executive Robert R. Neall.The county has put on hold a 20-year-old plan Mr. Neall had dusted off to build the bypass starting in 1996. However, with many Brookfield-area residents livid and the county facing a budget crunch, Mr. Neall in February named about a dozen community residents to a panel to re-examine the area's traffic problems and possible solutions.

Democrat Rich Corkran hopes his idealism and energy will put him in the Maryland State Senate, but the numbers in South Carroll's District 9 could tell another story. Just over half of the registered Carroll County voters in District 9 are Republicans; about one-third are Democrats. Republicans also outnumber Democrats on the Howard County side of the state Senate district. "I'm optimistic, otherwise I would have dropped out," said Corkran, a 59-year-old high school teacher from Ellicott City.

Shane Severe, an incoming sixth-grader at Corkran Middle School, had the usual misgivings of a new student when classes started Monday. How would he find the right classroom and read his schedule? Would he be able to make new friends? Whom could he ask for help? "I was really nervous because I thought I wouldn't understand anything," Shane said. But after orientation with his eighth-grade mentors, he felt relief. "I know they're going to help me out when I need help," Shane said. The Anne Arundel County School System starts sixth-graders a day before their older middle school classmates so they can get used to their new environs, but Corkran is one of the few that offers its students a mentoring program similar to those offered in high schools.

Quinter, heard about the responsibilities and realities of school board membership during a two-hour-plus workshop Tuesday run by Diane Mikulis, the school board chairman, and board member Sandra H.
