As a resident of Harper's Choice for 33 years, I am excited about the opportunity to have Alan Klein serve as our representative to the Columbia Council. Alan and I have worked together in the field of leadership and organizational change and for many years. I know him to be an independent thinker with insight and intelligence who always strives to treat others with respect. Alan has the kind of mind that enables him to grasp very complex, systemic issues, the kind of issues facing the Council as it grapples with decisions about Symphony Woods, open government and ensuring that lien payers receive real value for the fees we all pay. He consistently applies his skills in bringing people of divergent views together to come to a result that serves the common good.

I was pleased to read in the latest Columbia Flier that Regina Clay was successful in including $75,000 in the new CA Budget Year for additional amenities for the Faulkner Ridge Pool. I have been a strong supporter of the Faulkner Ridge Pool and for 42 years have used it daily with my wife during the summer season. Last year I lobbied intensely to keep this pool open, and was pleased that the CA Board of Directors voted not to close it. Since I live in the Longfellow section of Harpers Choice, I am unable to vote for Ms. Clay.

In a time-honored rite of passage, Sarah Klos received her diploma in the sweltering heat Thursday afternoon, along with many of the 905 eligible students in the largest graduating class in Howard Community College's 39-year history. But unlike students who knew their big day in black cap and gown was coming and were impatient waiting for it to arrive, she had good reason to wonder whether such a day was even possible. Klos, who lost her short-term memory as a child after two debilitating strokes and delicate brain surgery, waged a fierce battle for nine years to achieve an associate's degree in general studies typically earned in four semesters.

As Barack Obama surveyed the pandemonium, he spied two familiar faces in the crowd. Striding toward the podium during a campaign rally at the Comcast Center in College Park in February, the Illinois senator paused before addressing his exuberant supporters to speak to his wife's aunt and uncle on the sidelines. "I know, I know - 'It's just Barack,' " he quipped to Carleton and Stanette Robinson of Columbia, guessing at what they were thinking and poking fun at himself. "What's the big deal, right?"

Yinka Morakinyo, 13, an eighth-grader at Harper's Choice Middle School, normally wears T-shirts and jeans to school. But on Wednesdays, she makes an effort to look special - in part as a taste of the dress code she'll face one day in the working world. "It just makes you feel good," said Yinka, who was wearing a jean skirt and lightweight blue sweater. "You start off with a more positive attitude." That attitude is the goal behind a program called Dress for Success, started six years ago by the school's principal, C. Stephen Wallis.

"I think a big wasted resource in this county is senior citizens," says Bob Spongberg, 79, a retired engineer who lives in Columbia. That is why he has volunteered to work with pupils at Harper's Choice Middle School as part of a new collaboration between the school and the county's Office on Aging. The tutoring sessions pair seniors with pupils for an hour once a week. If the program goes well, other schools might add it. "This particular program is kind of a microcosm of what we envision," said Judi Bard, program specialist for the Howard County Office on Aging.
