The examples of Dallas Dance's supervisory abilities given in the article "Meet Mr. Dance" (April 8) are of concern. A principal should not have to wait for a visit from a supervisor to have a sewage problem repaired or a broken card swiper fixed. Those are indications of a school system that is not responsive to the needs of the local schools. Mr. Dance has not stayed in a job long enough to gauge the success or failure of his policies. His enthusiasm and energy are welcome, but they do not compensate for his lack of experience.

Steve Smith started the healing process immediately after he left the Carolina Panthers' facility and returned to his Charlotte home. Even though he anticipated his release by the only NFL organization that he had ever known, he was still angry and bitter. When Smith sat down with his family, the emotions poured out. They discussed everything - his college career at Utah, getting drafted by the Panthers, the 13 prolific seasons he played with them, and then of course, the difficult parting of ways.

The return of former Oriole Miguel Tejada still has several steps to overcome before coming to fruition, according to Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette. Tejada will report to the team's spring training facility on Monday to meet with Chris Correnti, who oversees the organization's rehab and conditioning. The 37-year-old former AL MVP will have a physical there and if he passes will then be signed to a contract to play in extended spring training, Duquette said.

Thanks to his unabashed enthusiasm for the job and his way with a tweet, Cockeysville's Reid Wiseman is becoming quite the Twitterverse celebrity as he orbits the Earth on the International Space Station. Almost from the moment he arrived at the station May 29, Wiseman, 38, has been posting photographs and commentary to his Twitter feed (his handle is @astro_reid). Even before his Soyuz flight took off May 28, Wiseman was posting selfies, including some featuring his crew mates German astronaut Alexander Gerst and Russian cosmonaut Maxim Suraev.

Ravenstown has never been more down than it was at the end of last season. There was genuine disgust for the first time since the team's arrival from Cleveland. Among the many factors that combined to generate disappointment, none was more important than the overheated expectations for the team that prevailed as the season began. Many observers had the Ravens making the playoffs and possibly going far. Coach Brian Billick had said it was his most talented team, quite a statement considering his 2000 squad won the Super Bowl.

Reading Time: Two Minutes.What the Washington Bullets have proved with their winning play to date -- last night's 118-98 triumph over the Charlotte Hornets put their record at 5-4 -- is that enthusiasm and attention to assignments can overcome any deficiencies there may be in the talent department.While Wes Unseld continues to get a pretty good line on what he can expect game to game out of his lads, the Hornets showed up obviously thinking half an effort (no defense) would carry them in this one.* OK, culinary types, plan tomorrow's repast either during the late morning or at approximately 7 p.m. if football fanatics people your domicile.

Why is enthusiasm about where you work and the people you work for so important? "The more enthusiasm a work force has, the higher the performance of a company," said David Sirota, founder of Sirota Survey Intelligence, a group of industrial psychologists based in Purchase, N.Y., who use survey methods to help companies improve managerial skills. "People come to work wanting to be enthusiastic, and they are - at least in the beginning," said Sirota, who has a doctorate in social psychology and has done behavioral science research for businesses for more than 40 years.

Havre de Grace. -- The presidential primary election campaign in Maryland brings back a lot of memories of another campaign 16 years ago, and some of them are unsettling to a voter trying hard to make up his mind in the spring of 1992.In 1976, the Democratic powers-that-be let events get away from them, and before they knew it, the little-known Jimmy Carter was well on his way to winning the nomination. Many party big shots hated the prospect. Here in Maryland, Gov. Marvin Mandel went bananas.

Where would America be without exuberance, that infectious, agitating mood that sent Teddy Roosevelt to explore the Badlands, write 40 books, recover from his wife's death, remarry and run for president? Where would this country be without the passion of John Muir for Yosemite or the enthusiasm of James Watson for the inside of a cell? Outsized enthusiasm, sometimes ridiculed and often supressed, is underrated in our society - perilously so. At least, that's the theory of Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, the Johns Hopkins psychiatrist who has studied moods most of her career and whose books shattered myths about depression.

William Maughlin and "Downtown" Kevin Brown want you to have a good time and good food in Station North , a community they love. The duo behind the much-adored Station North Arts Cafe Gallery are following up that success with a second restaurant, Nancy by SNAC (as in Station North Arts Cafe), which opened last fall. Plans for a third Station North spot, a barbecue joint, are already in the works. Nancy is named for Nancy Haragan , the late founder of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance . Given the arts connection, its location - within the Maryland Institute College of Art Graduate Studio Center on North Avenue - is an appropriate one. Nancy by SNAC is open for breakfast, lunch and snacks every weekday but for dinner only on Fridays.

For some it's the allure of fresh local vegetables. For others it's a coffee and a something baked. But for many it's a Sunday tradition. The city's Sunday Farmers' Market & Bazaar has been operating for 37 years and drawing crowds of regulars. Despite a persistent drizzle, this week was no different - except it was the last chance to shop until the first Sunday in April. The JFX overhead gave cover from the rain to vendors, who stocked their end-of-season tables with Christmas wreaths, meats, hot sandwiches, sweet treats and cider, as well the usual fall and winter vegetables.

The steel drum sounds that filled the room at Catonsville High School were so infectious that students playing the instruments couldn't help but dance. Music teacher Jim Wharton, the cavorting leader of the impromptu jam session, was steadily beating a cowbell when he stared out a nearby window and spotted a truck driver looking in while reversing the vehicle. "Come on," Wharton beckoned, motioning the driver to pull over and join the troupe. Even though his calls went unheeded, the 62-year-old child at heart resumed getting his groove on, savoring the Caribbean flavor he helped introduce to Baltimore County schools more than 20 years ago. After teaching music in the county for nearly 40 years, Wharton is retiring.

Cuban Revolution has come to Baltimore's Middle East neighborhood.

The neighborhood is being developed as a mixed-use life science campus. The anchor tenant is the Science & Technology Park at Johns Hopkins, but the 80-acre area will include other research facilities along with new housing, parking and a six-acre central park.

Baltimore baseball fans flocked back to Camden Yards and merrily decorated themselves in orange and black as the Orioles authored baseball's most surprising story of 2012. Now, signs abound that the enthusiasm from last fall - when the team broke a 15-year streak of losing records and postseason whiffs - has carried forward to a new season, which starts Tuesday in Tampa Bay. The Orioles' home opener Friday is the second-most-expensive opening-week ticket in the sport. The team's merchandise accounts for three times as much of the Major League Baseball retail market as it did last year.

PHILADELPHIA -- Maybe Roy Campanella once said, "You gotta be a man to play baseball for a living, but you gotta have a lot of little boy in you, too."Maybe he didn't.You never know. New York had seven newspapers in the '50s. Seven beat writers scrambling for something fresh, seven columnists hovering around the batting cage, eavesdropping, lusting after the hard angle, willing to bend a phrase here, a quote there.Roger Kahn, in his splendid book, "The Boys of Summer," has Campanella chirping during a World Series, "There's nothing a boy likes better than a circus, and to play this game good, a lot of you's got to be a little boy."

Take a look at him during practice, when he thinks nothing of getting down on the mat and working with kids nearly 30 years younger.Mohlhenrich's enthusiasm and love of the sport have helped Westminster shoot to the top of the county and state in recent years. The Owls were 16-2 last year, took second in the Class 3A-4A dual meet state tournament and third in the state's open competition.

The crowd, especially the student sections, were unrivaled in their support and enthusiasm for the youthful and sometimes erratic Terps . There was a festive atmosphere among the students dressed in the traditional Terps colors and a lot of pent-up energy as the Maryland crowd savored their team's victory.

The comparisons are inevitable because there has been only one other Super Bowl winning season in the Ravens' 17-year history in Baltimore. Both the 2000 and 2012 teams will have their special place, but no championship season will ever compare to the first. This season's title, however, adds to the distinction of the Ravens being one of the best franchises in the NFL, and it has created a whole new generation of fans - and excitement - for the organization. The 2000 season was special because it was the first winning season in club history.
