Two longtime friends give two-piano recitalThe art of the two-piano recital is something like the art of friendship -- knowing when to listen, when to talk and when to do both. Pianists Ceilito Elliot and Reynaldo Reyes have been friends since their teen years at the Manila Conservatory in the Philippines, each now teaches in the Baltimore area -- Reyes at Towson State University and Elliot at Garrison Forest School -- and they continue to play together for their own pleasure. Friday at 8 p.m. in the Ward Center for the Arts at St. Paul's School, on Falls Road, they will perform for the public's pleasure.

Education officials, staff and parents at a northern Harford elementary school coping with contaminated wells are asking for a connection to nearby public water lines. Trace amounts of MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether), a gasoline additive, were detected in the two private wells at Forest Hill Elementary School in 2005. By the spring of last year, tests showed the levels had risen to 13.6 parts per billion, a level still considered safe by federal standards, but one that prompted the school to use bottled water.

A former Latin teacher who taught at Garrison Forest School for 42 years has donated an estate valued at $4.6 million to the Owings Mills boarding and day school. The gift came from the estate of Miriam B. Vanderveer, who taught at Garrison Forest from 1930 until 1972. She died last year at age 97. Molly M. Hathaway, president of the school's board of trustees, said Vanderveer's bequest is the largest single gift in the school's history and is likely the largest gift from a former faculty member to any private, kindergarten through 12th-grade school.

The equestrian competition at Garrison Forest School yesterday was not just about which horse jumped with the most speed and accuracy. It was also about remembering an accomplished 16-year-old rider from Owings Mills, Allison Taylor Stevens, who was killed in a riding accident nine months ago after her sophomore year at the school. It was only fitting that the Garrison Forest riders won yesterday's Mid-Atlantic Jumper Show and that Allison's mother presented them with the Allison T. Stevens Perpetual Trophy -- which will be housed in a trophy room under construction on the school's campus in Owings Mills that also will bear her name.

When the girls entered the room and saw the man wearing thick padding to protect his groin, they laughed nervously. Their laughter subsided almost immediately, however, when instructor Donna Chaiet slammed her kneecap hard into the man and yelled, "No." Chaiet and her partner, Dave Ayala, the man in the bulky, diaper-like protection, had a message for the girls of private Garrison Forest School yesterday - and it didn't have anything to do with polite mixers or the varsity polo team. "You can all deliver a knockout blow to an adult male," Chaiet told a group of eighth-graders, one of three classes participating in a week-long self-defense and confidence-building course at the school in Owings Mills.
