Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has given a preliminary go-ahead for a $44 million renovation of the North Harford High School that will basically amount to the construction of a new school. In his capital budget released Thursday, the governor designated $2 million for the first phase of construction. "That is very good news for the county," said Kathleen Sanner, supervisor of planning and construction for Harford County Public Schools. "It's not written in law, but there's a gentlemen's agreement in Annapolis that insures when the first installment of construction money is awarded, you get the rest of the money," Sanner said.

Merri Leonard is learning to drive a sky-blue '67 Ford. But this is no Mustang or Galaxie 500 that the 15-year-old is cruising around in - it's a tractor. And the brightly colored model clearly stood out at North Harford High School's annual Tractor Day. "Even if you don't have your license yet, you can drive a tractor," the sophomore said at the Friday event. "They are way funner to drive than a car because you can do more with them." Merri's four-cylinder tractor, the lone blue one and only Ford among dozens of vintage and new John Deere, Farmall, McCormick and foreign models on exhibit at the athletic field, took part in a nearly 40-year-old tradition of showing off tractors on the Pylesville campus.

On a rainy Friday afternoon, Dave Thomas says he must have made the brief walk from North Harford High's main building to the school's temporary office "at least 50 times" that day - the kind of sacrifice the principal and others at North Harford are learning to cope with as the school settles in for years of construction work. In June, the Pylesville school broke ground on a $53.5 million, three-year renovation, the most expensive school project in Harford County's history. By the end of this school year, six new classrooms are to be finished in the space that formerly was the school's auxiliary gym. Also under way is a new media center that will take the place of eight classrooms that already have been torn down.

High school cultivating farming's next generation With surgical scissors, a needle and thread, Jessica Meadows carefully sutured a cut on a replica of an animal limb. Stitch by stitch, she repaired the deep laceration, an exercise that consumed most of the 80-minute animal science class at North Harford High School. "It takes time, but it really isn't that hard once you get the hang of it," said Meadows, a senior who hopes learning the technique will further her plans to study veterinary science in college.

For years, school officials have kicked around the idea of putting a performing arts magnet school at Havre de Grace High School. Earlier this month, Harford County Executive David R. Craig gave that idea a boost when he endorsed it at a county school board meeting. The school board agreed to put together a community study group. But critics say the idea is misguided, wasteful and counterproductive. "Why do we need a performing arts magnet school when we already have so many high schools doing great work?"

Since his appointment in 2005, Harford Executive David R. Craig has pushed for synthetic turf fields at the schools.

"In high school, I was a homebody, always afraid to branch out," said the North Harford High graduate. Her attitude changed on a pre-admission tour of the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. "I fell in love with this college," she said. "The minute I set foot on campus, the feeling that I could succeed there overcame me."
