For a few moments last week, Allison Stanley got an inkling of what it would be like to be a professional musician. The 15-year-old sophomore at Ellicott City's Homewood School played cello while accompanied by three members of the acclaimed Marian Anderson String Quartet. As she nervously played in front of her classmates, her rendition of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" accompanied by violins and viola filled the room with a beautiful, rich sound. The workshop held in the music room at Homewood, an alternative school, was part of an outreach program run by the Candlelight Concert Society - a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of music in Howard County.

The recession's effect on public policy produced a celebratory groundbreaking Monday for a new $49 million health sciences building at Howard Community College, two days after county teachers gathered to complain to legislators about proposed pension reductions and school budget cuts. The college's new 112,776-square-foot health sciences building has been in the works for years, and both county and state officials said they are glad that each branch of government still has enough capital budget money to push the project forward.

In anticipation of one of the tightest economies in recent years, Howard County Schools Superintendent John R. O'Rourke unveiled last night a lean spending plan for next year - adding no new programs and forgoing raises for himself and key aides - but still increasing last year's budget by at least $20 million. When the cost of annual pay increases for teachers and staff is added, the increase could move several million higher. The preliminary $389.6 million proposal for fiscal year 2003 alone represents a 5.6 percent increase over this year's budget.
