John Billingslea, the Franklin High School psychology teacher named yesterday as Baltimore County's Teacher of the Year, said that growing up on the family farm in northern Harford County taught him much about the value of hard work and the endurance he would need to sustain a career in education. He said his grandmother, Inez Billingslea, a kindergarten teacher, drilled into him the value of a good education. "My grandmother used to always, at dinnertime, tap me on my forehead and say, 'John, remember, they can't take this away from you,'" Billingslea recalled yesterday in a phone interview from the 97-acre farm in White Hall that he and his wife, Ellen, tend.

Franklin High School in Reisterstown marks the start of each school year by ringing a replica of the Liberty Bell. Students buy their lunch at the Kite and Key Cafe, Ben's Bistro or the String Shop. They eat beneath aphorisms, printed on the walls, such as "a penny saved is a penny earned." In the past few weeks, classmates have quizzed each other about the life and legacy of a certain founding father. And today, students and staff will don red, white and blue and enjoy some cake - all to mark Benjamin Franklin's 300th birthday.

C. Anthony Thompson had been principal at Woodlawn High for a few days, not enough time to unpack, when he was visited in July by an official from the State Department of Education. Woodlawn's longtime nickname -- the Warriors -- took the shape of a Native American in full-feathered regalia. The state school board had passed a resolution encouraging the 26 schools across Maryland with Indian mascots to choose less offensive logos and names. Woodlawn was being strongly urged to follow suit.

The symbiotic nature of the relationship between Franklin's senior Mays twins, Sam and Luke, is in sharp contrast to those of some of Maryland's most successful sibling grapplers. The Lynch twins of Annapolis, 1990 state champs Brian and Kevin, "couldn't practice together very long or ride in the same car without fighting," said retired coach Dave Gehrdes, who has coached three sets of twins over 23 seasons. Northeast's three-time champion Kusick twins are another example. As sophomores, after Marty beat DeMatha's Todd Beckerman, 8-7 - Beckerman's only loss in a career replete with four National Preps titles - Mike was inches from Marty's face, screaming "you were terrible."

In a showdown that was likely for the top-seeded position in the 3A North Region of the state soccer tournament, Eastern Tech smothered Franklin both offensively and defensively while posting a 3-1 victory yesterday. Eastern Tech raised its record to 11-2 heading into tomorrow's regular-season finale against Dundalk, and Franklin dipped to 9-2-1 with games against Dulaney and McDonogh remaining . Despite putting great pressure on the home forces from the opening whistle, Eastern Tech fell behind as the midpoint of the first half approached when Franklin co-captain Chris Borcik got his foot on a bounding ball in heavy traffic, one of his team's rare ventures into the Tech end of the field over the first 20 minutes.
