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.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has given a preliminary go-ahead for a $44 million renovation of the North Harford High School that will basically amount to the construction of a new school. In his capital budget released Thursday, the governor designated $2 million for the first phase of construction. "That is very good news for the county," said Kathleen Sanner, supervisor of planning and construction for Harford County Public Schools. "It's not written in law, but there's a gentlemen's agreement in Annapolis that insures when the first installment of construction money is awarded, you get the rest of the money," Sanner said.

Harford County officials broke ground, at least ceremonially, last week on the $82 million Edgewood High School and the $29 million Deerfield Elementary School on the campus that the two buildings share with Edgewood Middle School. Both projects are set for completion for the opening of the 2010 school year. "This ceremony was much more than ceremonial shovels in the ground," said Councilman Dion F. Guthrie, whose district includes Edgewood. "There was heavy equipment operating in the background as the ceremony went off."

Editor: After reading the article "A 'new breed' in Edgewood" in your June 10 edition, I wondered if I stood up in a community meeting in Bel Air and said I "sensed" that the town was being overrun with gang members and Oxycodone addicts it would be placed on the front page of The Aegis .

Harford County will soon embark on $140 million in school construction projects, which include a new high school and two new elementaries, without the promise of reimbursement from the state. "The state has not given us planning approval or construction funding for any of these projects, but everything is under appeal," said Kathleen Sanner, director of planning and construction for county schools. Severe crowding, aging buildings and long overdue renovations prompted the school board to move ahead with the work.

School administrators and police will be able to monitor schools throughout Harford County remotely this summer with surveillance cameras installed in hallways and stairwells. As part of a safety drive, the high-tech cameras will begin appearing this summer at Joppatowne High, Bel Air and Edgewood high schools, Edgewood Middle School and the Alternative Education Center.
