Tip of the week: Get your foot in the door If you are unable to get a formal interview, ask for an informational meeting or lunch to learn more about the company and position. This is an opportunity to talk about your background and skills, and it will help the person who hires understand the type of position you would be best suited for. You might also be told about other potential employers to contact within the company or outside. Get as much information as you can about the company, its competitors and the position of the person interviewing you. You have only one chance to make a first impression, so being well-prepared is essential.

Carroll Community College started its spring semester last week with an increased enrollment but without a full complement of full-time faculty because salary demands are stymieing the school's ability to hire and retain teachers, officials said yesterday. The college needs one math teacher, and the nursing school, which opened last year with 100 students, is clamoring for more instructors. A math teacher declined a position at the last minute, saying several public school systems could pay more.

OWEN BROWN resident Carrie B. MacMillan has strong feminist instincts, says her daughter Marjorie Hever. In her day, she just didn't act on them. Her day was the early 20th century. MacMillan is 106 years old and lives with Hever, 69, and her husband, Robert, 70, in Owen Brown village. "We attribute her longevity to her genes and her love of walking," Hever said. "Her mother and siblings lived into their late 90s. But she added to the luck of the draw by walking every day until she broke her hip at 102."

TO LIVE IN suburbia these days is to fret about growth: Sometimes, it seems, there's too much of everything: too much building, too many people, even too many plants.Plant experts patrolling in Howard County worry about an invasive, flowering weed called loosestrife. Multiflora roses and even Queen Anne's lace are threats as well. In time, they could kill enough benign vegetation to threaten the ecosystem that nurtures them.A homeowners group opposes an elder care development. It's too big, they say, and potentially damaging aesthetically.

A number of Baltimore County elected officials are pushing Gov. Parris N. Glendening to reappoint former Sen. Francis X. Kelly as head of the Community College of Baltimore County system, fearing that the Republican might be ousted by the governor.Political observers say that they believe the appointment is in trouble because Kelly -- who is widely credited with helping to turn around the once-troubled college system -- aggressively supported the election of Glendening's Republican opponent, Ellen R. Sauerbrey, last year.
