Facing angry complaints from residents about unruly and violent students from Hampstead Hill Middle School, Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke announced yesterday that the troubled school's principal would be transferred.The mayor also told nearly 200 people gathered at St. Elizabeth's Roman Catholic Church that his administration would investigate the possibility of rezoning the school so that more of its students come from the immediate neighborhood."One of the big problems is that the children attending the school are not from the neighborhood and thus they have to cross over this neighborhood to get home," Mr. Schmoke said.

As the song "Timber" rocked through the speakers, the crowd gathered for River Hill High School's Cultural Awareness Night couldn't stay seated - soon everyone joined in for a Zumba demonstration.

EVERY MORNING I walk my dog and every morning I get angry.My dog, a Jack Russell mongrel terrier named Gin, is not the cause, although she is one unruly beast. What gets me angry is Steuart Hill Elementary School on Union Square. For more than a year now, its American flag has been flying at half-staff. Day and night. Every day.To me, the Steuart Hill school's flag epitomizes everything that is wrong with the Baltimore public school system: people who do not care, people who are so uninterested in what they are doing that they do not see things that are obviously wrong.

Eric King opened the door to his car after a practice at Old Mill High School for tomorrow's Super 44 high school all-star football game and grinned, making it hard to tell whether the words that followed were a serious challenge or a playful joke. "I'll race you home," the All-Metro cornerback said, with his grin still spread wide. On the off-chance his driving is anything like his on-field play, there is good reason you should automatically decline. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound McDonogh graduate runs a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash, bench-presses 270 pounds and compensates for his size disadvantage with a craving for solid, brutal contact.
