Even though the Carroll County school system produces superior results -- as measured by the students' first or second-place performance on statewide standardized tests -- many parents express unhappiness with it. This unease may explain why 11 candidates have decided to run for two vacancies on the county school board. Voters get to choose two of the candidates in the non-partisan primary on Sept. 13; the top four vote-getters advance to the general election.Several candidates have fashioned their campaigns to tap into this animosity toward the board and administration.

A Carroll County bookkeeper accused of embezzling more than $236,000 - including a total of almost $50,000 from a Cub Scout troop and an elementary school PTA - was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore to three years in prison, federal officials said. Angela E. Hiltz, 43, used the money to purchase Ravens tickets, pay bills and furnish a home in Little River, S.C., according to court documents. The Mount Airy resident was immediately taken into custody to begin serving the sentence handed down by U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett.

Surrounded by their families, Thomas G. Hiltz and Susan Holt were sworn in yesterday afternoon as new members of the Carroll County Board of Education, roles they'll officially assume Monday. In years past, new board members took their oath of office in the county courthouse basement. The ceremony typically lacked any ceremony at all and lasted about 30 seconds. No flowers. No punch and cookies. No polite applause. But this year, after one of the most intensely fought school board elections in local history, Interim Superintendent Charles I. Ecker deemed a ceremony appropriate.

Gary Gait and Rodney Tapp each chipped in three goals.

During a low-key race for the Carroll County school board, the two winners stressed the need to continue building on the system's academic achievements, and it was that message that seemed to resonate with voters. Incumbent Thomas G. Hiltz - who is being returned to the board for a second four-year term - and newcomer Cynthia L. Foley maintained during the campaign that although the district was doing well, they saw room for improvement. "I think we are moving in the right direction," Hiltz said yesterday.

After 3,006 absentee ballots were counted yesterday, Thomas B. Hiltz and Susan Holt maintained their leads from Tuesday and won four-year terms on the Carroll County Board of Education. Hiltz led the field with 28 percent of the votes, Holt had 25 percent and Lisa Breslin had 24.6 percent, according to unofficial totals tabulated by the Carroll board of elections. Steven M. Nevin came in fourth with 22 percent, the results show. In all, 64,142 votes were cast, the board reported. Holt led Breslin after Tuesday's count by 515 votes, too slim a margin to declare victory without counting the absentee ballots.

When Carroll school board member Thomas G. Hiltz first looked over the school system's ethics policy, he found just about everything to be in order. Upon closer examination, however, Hiltz discovered that he could possibly accept an all-expenses-paid trip to Lake Tahoe or some other far-flung locale from a company that does business with the school system simply by offering the flimsy justification that he was participating in a panel discussion for the company. "If you read it, it certainly appears that we have a stronger policy than we actually do," Hiltz said in an interview last week.

When Thomas G. Hiltz was elected to the Carroll County school board in 2000, the school system was trying to restore public trust after weathering lawsuits, a grand jury investigation and the early retirement of its superintendent. A debate also raged about the building of a high school in Westminster. Hiltz won one of two vacant board seats in a race noted for the abundance of candidates (more than 20 at one point); candidates forums (more than 10); and campaign spending (Hiltz shelled out about $10,000, more than half of which came from his own pocket)

While Carroll County students will be required to take a financial literacy course to graduate starting next year, concerns linger over whether mandating the course is the most effective way to teach money matters to teens. "The course is likely a good thing, but I am convinced it is not the best thing," school board President Thomas G. Hiltz said last week. "One course is not a panacea and, alone, will not make our students financially literate." After a lengthy debate about requiring the class, board members voted 4-1 to require students beginning next school year to take the half-credit course.

With a week to go before the candidate filing deadline, no one has submitted the necessary paperwork to run for two Carroll County school board seats - the same seats that 24 people fought for in a contentious election nearly four years ago. While incumbent board member Thomas G. Hiltz said he intends to file his candidate application with the county elections board this week, fellow incumbent Susan G. Holt remains undecided. She said she would like to run for re-election in the March primary but is "still in negotiations" with her family.

Yesterday morning began with only one Carroll County school board candidate -- incumbent Thomas G. Hiltz -- having filed to run for the two seats up for grabs in a March primary. By the 9 p.m. filing deadline, a McDaniel College graduate student, a Sykesville man and a Westminster mother who has become a fixture at school board meetings had entered the race, ensuring an uncontested primary but a competitive general election. Besides Hiltz, 44, a Naval Reserves commander who works for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, candidates on the November ballot will be David Stysley, 24, chairman of the county's Green Party who is studying human resources at McDaniel College; Gary G. Weishaar of Sykesville; and Cynthia L. Foley, 47, of Westminster who turned in her candidacy paperwork 15 minutes before the deadline.
