Judith Sala Legg, a trustee of Garrison Forest School whose struggle against breast cancer inspired a support group of more than 700 friends and strangers, died of the disease Saturday at her Owings Mills home. She was 52. Mrs. Legg's support group -- The Fireflies -- produced newsletters, bumper stickers and tote bags during her 6 1/2-year struggle against cancer and was sparked by "her amazing sense of optimism, courage and strength," said her longtime friend, Toni Vreeland of Owings Mills.

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.

April is Financial Literacy Month. Imagine how different the economic meltdown might have been if every school-aged child were taught some basic economic skills, from learning how to earn, save and budget to investing and donating money. Financial literacy is the intellectual raw material for crafting goals and shaping strategies in the new global economy. It's like learning another language, putting a "D" for "dollars" into the ABCs of education. Twenty years ago the term "financial literacy" was barely in the lexicon.

Wu Ching-ju, speaking through an interpreter, opened the ceremony at Garrison Forest School, an all-girls elementary through high school in Owings Mills.

Even before Harvard University President Lawrence H. Summers proposed that differences in the "intrinsic aptitudes" of men and women were the explanation for women's underrepresentation in the sciences, a plan to increase the number of female science and engineering students had been hatched by the Garrison Forest School and the Johns Hopkins University. Garrison Forest, an independent boarding and day school near Owings Mills, is partnering with Hopkins' Whiting School of Engineering and Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences to bring high school girls into the science and engineering fields.
