Karwacki, a retired Maryland Court of Appeals judge who was president of the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners during the troubled early 1970s, died of kidney failure Monday at his Chester home. The former Mount Vernon resident was 80. He was named head of the city's school board in 1970 and assisted in the appointment of Baltimore's first African-American schools superintendent.

Bushy Park Elementary School - which boasts some of the county's highest test scores and routinely garners praise from parents, pupils and staff members - didn't become top notch by accident. Principal Nancy Kalin attributes the school's success to lots of work: hard work by the pupils, teamwork by the staff members and administrators. That work was recognized yesterday by Sens. Paul S. Sarbanes and Barbara A. Mikulski, who presented Kalin and her small suburban school with the prestigious Senate Productivity Award.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall waited nearly 20 years to become a head football coach, navigating multiple stops along a twisting path that led him to Connecticut 15 years ago at the age of 40. Edsall, now at Maryland, has a contemporary home that's decorated with evidence of a coach's nomadic lifestyle.

There are watercolor portraits - given to Edsall and his wife, Eileen, as gifts - of many of the family homes they have left behind.

For all the horrible scenarios I had in mind for my first day of high school, a shooting never crossed my mind. It was fourth period and we were just about to watch a movie when the intercom crackled. My principal declared, "We are in a lockdown. " Initially, I wasn't scared. I was curious. Even excited. My whole class was. Because "lockdown" sounded like something straight out of "CSI. " But we had no idea that someone had just gotten shot. We had no idea that soon, the whole school - the whole community - would be in a state which my government teacher labeled "controlled chaos.
