JIM ROBEY was one of many Howard High School alumni at the school yesterday afternoon to help celebrate its 50th anniversary. He sat on the stage with other graduates and local officials, waiting his turn to talk, as proclamations were issued and memories shared. When he finally stepped to the microphone, a handful of audience members rose and said in unison: "Yeah, Class of '59." And the crowd burst into laughter. Robey, who was elected Tuesday to a second term as county executive, did his official duty and issued a proclamation in honor of the school.

But when Howard High School invited him to be its volunteer scientist-in-residence, Brown couldn't resist. The 70-year-old Columbia resident hasn't missed a Tuesday or Thursday in eight years of working with students. "I never had time to go into that blue mode, depression," after retiring, Brown said.

I n one scene, an empty chair sits in the middle of a student art class, a blank sheet of paper on the easel in front of it. In another, an empty seat is surrounded by students playing flutes and clarinets. Then in a roomful of chess matches, one student is seated at a gameboard but missing an opponent. The message at the end: Don't let there be another empty seat. The video, developed by the Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center and shown to Howard County high school students, is appropriately named “Empty Seats,” and it's part of a campaign called Don't Do Nothing, which educates students about the signs of suicidal thoughts and urges them to intervene if they suspect a friend is in trouble.

Even though Monica Patel can no longer play the violin, her love of music helped her win a four-year scholarship to McDaniel College in Westminster. Patel, who graduated in May from Howard High School, has been involved throughout her high school career with Collision Music, a nonprofit organization that fosters community service through music. Most members of Collision Music play instruments. Patel played violin for many years, but about four years ago, while jumping on a friend's trampoline, she broke both bones in her right arm. She had surgery to install metal plates, then another operation to take the plates out after her bones healed.

As I stood in The Mall in Columbia parking lot throughout the day and night Saturday, I received a few questions on Twitter about why I, a sports reporter who covers the Orioles for The Baltimore Sun, was there reporting on the shooting. So, before you continue to read, know that this blog isn't about the Orioles or what they've done or haven't done this offseason. But it is to answer that first question in much more than 140 characters. To me, it was a little personal. When violence occurs locally, we are often cliché in saying that it happens too close to home.

For a junior camp counselor at the Howard County Recreation and Parks' Summer Sensations Camp, the to-do list is varied. There are tables to wipe down, campers to corral, snacks to prepare. But at the moment, the job is: dance. The Ellicott Mills Middle School auditorium is booming. The deejay turns up the “Cha Cha Slide.”  Everyone is hopping and clapping, laughing and sliding across the auditorium. “I love helping kids,” says Zoe Williams, 13, an Elkridge Landing Middle School student who was a camper before becoming a junior camp counselor.

For Eric Bouchat, being redrawn into District 9A was a homecoming of sorts. The Republican candidate for the House of Delegates is a Howard County native, graduated from Howard High School in 1985 and lived in Howard County for several years before moving to the Carroll County side of Woodbine. Late last month, Bouchat held his fifth annual Ravens-game bull roast fundraiser at the Winfield Fire Department in Sykesville. He said the roast was a laid-back, "grassroots" event. "Nobody dressed up, people were in Ravens gear," he said.

If there is one piece of advice business professionals from billionaire Donald Trump to small-store owners tell applicants searching for employment, it is this: You must sell yourself. That means your cover letter and resume must be in top shape, free of grammatical errors. It also means you must dress professionally and sit up straight during an interview and be prepared to discuss why you are the best person for the job. In the Howard County school system, juniors must go through an interview process as part of the World of Work state education requirement.

On Tuesday, May 21, my son graduated from HCC, and I want to thank the many people who made his graduation possible. In 1994, he was diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorder: not otherwise specified, in Prince William County, Va. It became clear that Prince William was not the place for him to receive his education and I was fortunate to get a job in the Howard County School System in 1996. In 1996, Howard County was not the school system it is now for students with autism and other kids on the autism spectrum.
