POLITICALLY incorrect sign of the week, found on a liquor store: "Celebrate the Fourth with a fifth!"Other than that, it's been a slow week here. The end of June was a strange time -- schools were closed, but it was still too early to go on vacation. We get odd storms, with too much rain and plenty of thunder. All in all, an off-putting time. Glad it's over and July finally here!In honor of the summer's arrival, let us recognize the recent graduates who soon will scatter across the landscape to colleges, the armed forces and new jobs.

About 60 Hammond High School students and faculty gathered in the cafeteria last week for a brief stint in the food service industry. They donned hairnets and gloves and branched off to various tables to form assembly lines to package and ship about 10,000 dehydrated meals destined for people in impoverished areas overseas. Students said they hoped some of the food would head to victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Visayas region of the Philippines last month. The effort marked the third consecutive year Hammond High School has staged a meal-packing event.

The head of the Howard County teachers union wants the school system to explore the option of transferring principals from schools where employee morale is low. The stance from Ann DeLacy, president of the Howard County Education Association, follows results from the association's annual job satisfaction survey that show that eight of the school system's 73 schools fall below 50 percent when it comes to teacher morale. But Superintendent Sydney L. Cousin says the practice of using a survey, which was done in the school system about 15 years ago, is outdated and does not reflect the current needs of the school system.

None of the 47 people tested in connection with the positive diagnosis of a Hammond High School student has contracted tuberculosis, Howard County's top health officer said. "It was as we expected," said Dr. Peter L. Beilenson. "There were no positive diagnoses. This is essentially over." Beilenson's office sent out letters Monday to the Hammond High community that said everyone had tested negative, and that the case has been resolved. The school community was informed of the diagnosis Feb. 25. Letters were sent Feb. 23 to the 47 students who rode the bus with the student, warning of possible exposure and urging them to get tested.
