It's easy to get lost in the back and forth about education policy decisions in Harford County, or anywhere else for that matter, and focus on problems like portable classrooms, security issues, teacher retirement plan funding and the like. A danger when this happens is the focus is lost on what's right with our public school system, and there's plenty that's right. Maryland has one of the highest-ranked public school systems in the country, and Harford County's public schools have been among the top tier in the state.

WESTMINSTER — With a trio of figures holding the world and a theme of "Building the Future," a new logo for Carroll County Public Schools was unveiled this week at the Aug. 8 Board of Education meeting. The logo is a variation of a design developed by Beth Sheedy, a 2012 graduate of Francis Scott Key High School. Sheedy had developed a logo based on a system-wide project to come up with new look to represent the new theme, "Carroll County Public Schools - Building the Future. " The process stems from a December 2011 initiative that created a new mission statement for the school system with the "Building the Future" theme.

Ron Belinko spent a lot of time at high school games over the last 21 years, despite the heavy load of office work and meetings that came with being coordinator of athletics for the Baltimore County Public Schools. He never could let go of the student-athletes who remained the focus of everything he did over a 46-year career as a teacher, coach, athletic director and central office administrator with the county. Belinko, who will retire Friday, found no better measure of how well he did his job than seeing it all come together on the field.

Howard held off defending champion Centennial at the 35th annual Howard County Championship meet, April 22 at the Howard Community College pool. Because swimming is not a sport that is sanctioned by the county's high school athletic program, the event is sponsored by the Columbia Clippers club team. Each school had a captain that recruited his or her classmates to form a team. Although Howard County public school swimmers get only one chance a year to represent their high school in the pool, many local swimmers will be continuing in college next year.
