I just read the article announcing that the city of Laurel is receiving $150,000 to renovate a local park ("City gets state playground funds for Cypress Street field," Leader, Oct. 20), and though I am grateful that the state has chosen to invest in outdoor recreation, who's going to invest in LBGC? It amazes me that here we have a huge historic building, a staple in the community, and some areas of the building are in urgent need of repair. It is a structurally amazing building and the possibilities are endless.

A group of McDaniel College students and elementary school kids have only needed one thing to bond: a couple of hours in the gym together. With a few balls, a plastic bat and some jump ropes, the newly established Fitness Buddies group meets weekly under the direction of Roger Isom, a McDaniel sophomore who designed the program. It's kind of like Big Brothers Big Sisters for fitness, says Isom, an exercise science and physical education major. "I want to show them that exercise isn't just for athletes," he says.

Laurel Boys and Girls Club officials have not only decided to put off plans to open a charter high school in their Montgomery Street headquarters indefinitely, but they will not renew the lease of its current tenant, Princeton Day Academy, for next year. According to club president Levet Brown, the charter school is being delayed because club officials have not been able to raise the money needed to bring the building up to code in order to house a school in the facility. Brown said Princeton Day, a private high school with about 40 students, was using space in the annex portion of the building free of charge.

Our mission cannot be realized without the tremendous amount of support extended to us from dedicated volunteers, grantors, businesses and the community who believe in our programming, service to families and youths and realize the positive impact the club has on the greater Laurel area. Just recently, such a supporter, Laurel Art Center, who recently closed its business on Main Street after over 40 years of providing a service to Laurel, contacted the club expressing a wish to give a last tribute to the club by conducting a fundraiser at the Laurel Art Center.

Having been a longtime city of Laurel resident, I am concerned that we caved in and allowed candidates who had enough time to fill out their forms completely by the deadline to run in the next election ("Laurel elections board finalizes November ballot. " Oct. 10). I certainly hope that when people turn out to vote in the next election for City Council members they ask themselves if they want someone who cannot complete a simple form in charge of our tax money. The reason given [by Board of Election Supervisors John Kish]
