Francis Scott Key boys basketball coach Jeff Cook, The Sun's 1998 Carroll County Coach of the Year, has stepped down to spend more time with his family. Cook, who made his decision to resign public after the Eagles lost to top-seeded Fort Hill, 83-73, in a Class 2A West quarterfinal game in Union Bridge Tuesday night, said he didn't want to miss watching his six children -- ranging in age from 2 to 11 years -- grow up. "I just missed a lot of their games and practices, and my wife has had to do it all by herself for four months," Cook said.

About the only thing that doesn't come naturally to Francis Scott Key wrestler Randy Owings when he's on the mat is losing.Owings has taken to the mat 23 times this season for the Eagles and 22 times he has left a winner -- 14 by pin. Key coach Bill Hyson says the 16-year-old already wrestles like a polished veteran, despite being only a sophomore.Owings -- ranked second in the state in the 130-pound class -- has a strong wrestling background that began when he was 4. It was then he started competing in tournaments before joining the FSK Junior Eagles program at 7. He won states as an eighth-grader in the junior program, and his immediate success in high school was no surprise to him."

Francis Scott Key High School's auditorium was filled with red, white and blue on Wednesday night, Sept. 13, as the school hosted "Voices of Freedom," a program designed to honor the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 through dance, song, music and readings. Featuring students from Runnymede Elementary, New Windsor Middle and FSK, the event was coordinated by Mickey Brilhart, a visual arts teacher at FSK, and Shellie Rosso, the high school's dance teacher. The program was created after the school's administration approached the fine arts department last year requesting ways to recognize the War of 1812 - and its link to Francis Scott Key, who lived in Carroll County and penned the words by dawn's early light that became our national anthem.

What does it mean to belong to a group? The Maryland Ensemble Theatre's latest original piece, Something Brilliant Will Come to Us, explores the social dynamics that drive people to passionate and sometimes fanatical involvement. Something Brilliant shows the improvisational roots of the Frederick-based theater, which began in 1993 as an improv comedy troupe. Associate artistic director Gene Fouche called the play an interactive theater experience. She said the point is not to make the audience laugh but to cross audience-performer boundaries and turn the audience into participants.

In its continued efforts to get the sewage treatment plant at Francis Scott Key High School operating, the county held a state-required public hearing on the troubled facility last night. About a dozen people attended the hearing on a proposed amendment to the county's water and sewerage master plan, which would outline Carroll's plans to treat sewage generated by the high school. Those plans call for use of the $786,000 wastewater treatment plant - built in 1998 without the required construction and environmental permits - and the discharge of treated effluent into a wetland on an adjoining property.

As Carroll County continues to truck raw sewage from Francis Scott Key High School, hopes for a functional wastewater treatment plant at the school received a boost yesterday. Maryland Department of the Environment officials have issued a draft of the permit the county would need to move the long-delayed and mishandled project forward. The county must review the draft, which establishes preliminary guidelines for releasing treated sewage into wetlands, and send it back to MDE. Then the community will have opportunities to comment before MDE makes a final decision.

Carroll officials will survey Bark Hill Road residents to determine whether they would allow the county to bury a pipeline across their properties to carry sewage from the illegally built wastewater treatment plant at Francis Scott Key High School to Union Bridge. Although county officials are making the proposal, they expect residents to oppose the idea of a pipeline carrying raw sewage or treated effluent beneath their front yards - a more than $1 million project. Tensions in the case are high, with some Bark Hill residents plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the county Board of Education, demanding removal of the treatment plant.
