A chronic shortage of school bus drivers - fueled by a shrinking applicant pool and limited work schedules - has Carroll County school officials pondering ways to make the job more appealing. "It's an ongoing problem," Jim Doolan, the school system's director of transportation services, said during an interview last week. "Eighteen years ago when I took this job, we were talking about a driver shortage. But it wasn't as severe then as it is now." He said the most significant contributor to the shortage is a dwindling supply of applicants.

Business as usual. Just another game.That's the strategy first-year Mount Hebron coach Jeff Doolan chose to get his squad ready for the Class 2A state championship game yesterday at UMBC.And in the end it worked.David Lechtrecker (27 goals, eight assists), the Vikings' leading scorer, headed in the winning goal with 9: 45 left to play and No. 5-ranked Mount Hebron held on to defeat James M. Bennett, 1-0, to capture its first state title in its first state playoff appearance."We didn't talk about winning the state title this week in practice because I was afraid of getting them too fired up and having them come in here in awe," said first-year coach Doolan.

Carroll County school officials cleared a bus driver yesterday of accusations by children that he drove their school bus across railroad tracks through flashing red warning lights Friday afternoon. But parents in New Windsor remained upset, because school officials, who acknowledge a train was in the area, didn't believe their children. There will be no further action involving the driver, 74-year-old Roland C. Strawsburg, who has an exemplary record in 30-plus years of driving, said James Doolan, the county schools supervisor of transportation.

It's safe to say Mount Hebron and River Hill won't be exchanging Christmas cards in the off-season after yesterday's lacrosse game, a 9-3 Vikings win. "They don't particularly care for us, we don't particularly care for them," said River Hill coach Keith Gonsouland. "But hey, we're not out here to make friends. We're here to win." The feeling wasn't exclusive to the Hawks. The Vikings made it quite clear that they don't care for River Hill, and they too had only winning in mind. "River Hill has been running their mouths all year talking about how they're going to beat us, just like they do every year," said Vikings attackman Dan Selawski, who scored twice in the win. "We didn't play that well today, but there is still no better feeling than coming out and beating them on their own field."

The more things change in Howard County boys lacrosse, the more they seem to stay the same. Once again, Mount Hebron will begin the season as the favorite, but the feeling throughout the league is that the gap between the best and the rest is much smaller than it has been in several years. Interestingly, no one agrees more than Mount Hebron coach Jeff Doolan, and he is quick to point out that the Vikings return only two starters from last year's powerful squad that went 17-2 and lost in the state semifinals.

About 6 inches of snow covered roads and surprised morning commuters yesterday as a storm forecast originally as mixed snow and rain caused a rash of fender benders and closed Carroll schools. Phil Poole, a National Weather Service forecaster in Sterling, Va., said forecasters had expected rain, but yesterday morning, the temperature dropped and the air didn't stay as warm as expected. "Consequently, we got more snow in your part of the world," Poole said. Snow, heavy at times, fell until 2:30 p.m. in Westminster.
