James King got into politics to help small businesses. And already, the new delegate from Anne Arundel County seems to have given a boost to one: a bar called The Rockfish, which is suddenly mobbed on Monday nights. King owns the bar. And the crowds? Fellow delegates, senators, legislative staffers and lobbyists, who arrive courtesy of a free shuttle bus King started running a few weeks ago between the State House and the bar. "They've kind of dubbed it `Lawmaker Mondays,'" said King, who in addition to transportation offers drink specials, free food and live music.

Brenda Luengas, a sixth-grader at Annapolis Middle School, said students don't push in the halls anymore. "Usually, when we came back from lunch, they were running and pushing," she said. "But this year, they don't. They walk nicely." Brenda thinks the difference is Caring Community, a new program at Annapolis Middle School. Instead of the typical take-attendance-and-listen-to-announcements homeroom, teachers use the first half-hour of the day to talk to students about issues that matter to them.

It was the spring of 1968 and I was a junior in one of the enormous Catholic high schools of Philadelphia. Our class alone consisted of more than 900 boys. To my surprise, a few friends in my homeroom nominated me to run for senior class officer. To my utter amazement, I wound up on the list of eight candidates selected to deliver a speech to the class at a morning assembly.The competition was stiff: two football stars, an honor student and four current members of the student council (career politicians)

In his homeroom, flashcards in English and Spanish abound, and classmates resort to facial expressions and hand motions when words don't work."

ANOTHER SCHOOL year begins in Baltimore County, and Stephanie Brittingham attends by telephone. Her teachers came to her Parkville house Monday, gave her books and set up a speaker phone on the desk in her bedroom. Yesterday, Stephanie dialed up a science lesson at 10 a.m., math at 11 and social studies at 1 in the afternoon. She's a sixth-grader who won't see the inside of a classroom or study with classmates this year, and that's how it goes when you're 11 and tethered to an intravenous tube, on the long end of a wait for an organ transplant.

NEARLY A DOZEN New Windsor Middle School pupils spent the last of their school days packing bags of towels, toothbrushes and other personal items for the homeless in Baltimore. The children, members of the after-school club, Students Helping Others and Understanding Themselves, or SHOUT, learned of the need through a school secretary, said social studies teacher Lisa Lardieri, the club's adult adviser. The secretary knew that Uniontown Bible Church worked with the nonprofit group Happy Helpers for the Homeless.

HER NAME was Michelle Winder, and her destiny was to tug at all hearts. She arrived one school day in the middle of the 1950s, beautiful beyond articulation, with a shy and sunny sweetness to fill a whole classroom, and then disappeared until last weekend when she was spotted on the Senator Theatre movie screen.That was Michelle up there, wasn't it? In Barry Levinson's "Liberty Heights," that lovely black girl who accidentally steals the heart of the white boy named Kurtzman -- that must have been Michelle, for who else in that time could have caused such a great leap across the previously uncrossable American color line?

To understand the drive and perseverance of Kenneth Starr, you have to examine his Texas roots, friends say.A glimpse of Starr's formative years presents a picture that meshes little with the White House's portrayal of him as a relentless, if not brutal, and politically motivated inquisitor.The son of a minister, Starr was born in Vernon, Texas, but attended school in San Antonio after his family moved to a small house on the outskirts of the South Texas city. His classmates and teachers recall him as a squeaky-clean, mild-mannered, straight-A student.

Gilman School will build a $4.5 million lower school to replace its lower school, which was constructed in 1922 as the second building on the Roland Avenue campus, its headmaster said yesterday.Although the nearly 40,000-square-foot structure will provide an additional homeroom for each grade, the school will not increase its enrollment, but rather reduce class sizes in the early grades -- from about 25 to about 17 students per homeroom.The building is expected to open in September 1998 and will be named for Gilman's legendary leader, Henry H. Callard, who was a teacher there during the 1920s and headmaster from 1943 to 1963.
