A Pasadena teenager whose problems with dyslexia eroded his pride when he was younger will receive a national award for developing workshops to help protect elementary schoolchildren from struggles like his. Davin Singleton, 18, will be named one of six 2007 National Caring Award Young Adults next month, an honor that annually goes to youths who have demonstrated extraordinary voluntarism and community service. Last year's recipients included Mattie Stepanek, a nationally renowned 14-year-old who was national ambassador for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, raised money for the hungry and co-wrote a book with former President Jimmy Carter.

So why must Anne Arundel County spend $14.4 million to build a new Davidsonville Elementary School, when other counties are building schools for about half the price?Some of the extra cost is in the site.Building the 600-student school at Central Avenue and Queen Anne Bridge Road would require major road improvements to allow separate bus and car lanes as well as a traffic signal. Total cost: $200,000.Because public water is not available, the builder would have to dig a well and install water treatment, septic and underground sprinkler systems.

The students tripped out of Jacobsville Elementary School three hours early yesterday with a giddiness that belied the heat."This is my favorite day of the whole school year," declared Travis Haas, a fourth-grader, as he scurried to catch his bus.A combination of temperatures in the low 90s and humidity prompted the Anne Arundel County Board of Education to close all elementary,middle and high schools.The Memorial Day holiday compounded the problem. "The schools had been closed for three days, and the heat had really built up," said spokeswoman Jane Doyle.
