The Howard County school board last night unanimously approved a floor plan for the new eastern high school that would place physically disabled students on the second and third floors despite concerns they would have difficulties evacuating the building in an emergency.It was the second time the proposed floor plan for the Long Reach high school -- under construction and set to open in 1996 -- came before the board.In September, the board voiced concern for the safety of special education students, who would rely on one elevator to get to classes in the new school and on teachers and staff to carry them down stairwells in an emergency.

There were only two days left before the big show at the Lake Clifton-Eastern High School complex, and things were not exactly as Christina Youngston would have liked them to be. The clock in the vast, seldom-used auditorium was frozen at 11:48. Only four of the stage lights were in working condition; the rest were bulbless, collecting dust on a shelf. There was still no sign of the microphones or costumes someone had agreed to provide for the show. But Youngston, the volunteer director of School No. 426's drama club, set aside those worries as her 15 actors gathered on the dimly lit stage to warm up. Together, they swung their arms, rolled their heads from side to side and blew raspberries to loosen their lips.

While demolition crews take down the last of Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, a city landmark across the street has been given a chance to shine again. Baltimore's former Eastern High School, closed to students in 1986, has reopened this spring as the anchor for a new satellite campus for the Johns Hopkins University. Hopkins acquired the high school in 1996 and has invested $28 million to convert it and the surrounding property to an administrative center called Johns Hopkins at Eastern.

Tell me where do you go when you got no dough, "There must be a way out of here. "But I've got to find some peace of mind, "There must be a place that I can find." -- Garnet Mimms and the EnchantersOn the sidewalk near Big Boyz Bail Bonds and the liquor store, a few men stand in a splash of sunlight and speak in reverent tones of the high school kid everyone calls "Dawg."It's a nearly discarded neighborhood, a tiny chunk of Middle River in eastern Baltimore County, the kind of place where police removed two public telephones because dopers were using them to run their packages.
