At Edgewood High School's commencement exercises, John H. Hudson Jr. was among the average graduates."I feel I'm no different, and they feel the same way," John said on one of the last days of class.The 17-year-old Edgewood resident finished school with a B average. He plans to attend Harford Community College in the fall. He's not sure yet what his major will be, but he would like to work with computers some day.He played The Reverend in a recent school production of "Hillbilly Wedding." He likes country music, and two or three times a week, he shops at his favorite country-western clothing store in Bel Air.Not much to set him apart from the county's 2,000 or so other graduates.

Editor: Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Donte' Lamont Hickman, the Pastor of the Southern Baptist Church. I have been the Pastor of Southern for 12 year, and since I began as Pastor, we have implemented a vision and mission driven church committed to community outreach and transformation. About four years ago we began a multi-site church in Harford County. We had members who already lived in Harford County and we wanted to provide another ministry presence and option for established and new residents of Harford County.  Interestingly enough, the first place I came to look for a facility to hold services in was Joppatowne.

Given his family background, it's easy to understand how Steve Salters got into coaching. What sets Edgewood High School's new head football coach apart from his peers, however, is his age.At 25, he is one of the sport's youngest head coaches in the state, but since his appointment last month, there have been more "How're you gonna do?" queries from his friends than comments about his age.One week into preseason practice, Salters is still feeling his way but he has ensured a measure of continuity from last year's 8-3 State Class 2-A playoff team by retaining the coaching staff, most of whom are also in their 20s."

Editor: Edgewood High School is Awesome! I read with great interest Bryna Zumer's article in the Friday, Aug. 23, edition of The Aegis in which Mr. Llewellyn, an art teacher new to Edgewood High School states that he was very surprised at the order and fine learning environment that he found upon his arrival. In September 1956, I arrived at Edgewood High School to teach English and found the very same environment as Mr. Llewellyn. A few years later, I was appointed Assistant Principal and later opened the newly-constructed Edgewood Middle School as its first principal where I remained for 20 years.

Every community has positive attributes and problems. Heck, some states - New Jersey and West Virginia, to name two in the immediate vicinity - have their own brand of associated jokes. Yet plenty of people are proud to call New Jersey and West Virginia home, and both states can boast having strong tourism components to their respective economies. Jokes about what exit a certain attraction is off of or the number of dentists per 100,000 population are likely to persist, but that doesn't mean either state is lacking or in need of making a particular change because of what someone who lives in New York or Ohio or Maryland might think.

Sophomore Seth Higgins likes to think of himself as a student of the game. This offseason, Morgan State coach Donald Hill-Eley found out first-hand just how intent his starting quarterback is on becoming a football scholar. "Seth was always in the office. It was almost like he was employed," Hill-Eley said. "I mean, seeing the copier machine was just like seeing Seth. He was going to be there, and he was going to put the time into watching film and learning what's expected. " It's that kind of commitment that has Morgan football fans buzzing about the former Edgewood standout, who started the team's final seven games as a true freshman, throwing for 1,116 yards and nine touchdowns.
