The public back and forth among our elected officials regarding whether Havre de Grace High School is in line for being replaced has been focused on a number of somewhat important policy-making details, even as the big picture has been overlooked. In short, Havre de Grace is next in line for a major high school renovation project, and the details of who gets to first list it as an official budget priority, while of some interest to those involved in the politics of the matter, is largely immaterial to the community and students affected.

Talk about rebuilding or replacing Havre de Grace High School got me to thinking. Talk about rebuilding or replacing Havre de Grace High School got me thinking. For more than a year, some noticeable changes have been taking place at the school. It started with the removal of what for generations had been the school's tennis courts tucked behind the gym at the corner of Adams and Bourbon streets. It's been a long time since they've been used for tennis. In recent years as they fell further and further into disrepair, they had been used primarily for baseball, lacrosse and softball teams seeking a dry spot during the cold, wet months of spring.

I t's possible that Harford County's decision to spend millions on the future Beechtree Estates neighborhood is not a big, sloppy subsidy for developer Clark Turner. Shame county officials can't demonstrate that. When a county diverts future taxes to help a longtime friend of the county executive's, it needs to make a bulletproof case that the public benefits more than the businessman. Last week, the County Council agreed to float $14 million in bonds and spend the proceeds on streets and sewers in and near Beechtree - the kind of public improvements usually paid for by developers.

But that kind of gathering is common when members of Havre de Grace High School's Improv Club turn on the spotlight. With a format that mimics the popular TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway? hosted by comedian Drew Carey, the students play games built around over-the-top scenarios and topics. At a recent practice, the students worked on a storytelling game in which they lined up and were picked randomly one after another to ad-lib parts of a story that included Cleopatra and her army (naturally)
