Sean Jordan steadied the hulking euphonium on Wednesday afternoon as he followed the rest of his classmates snaking through the hallways of Jeffers Hill Elementary while playing "We Will Rock You." Throngs of classmates wildly cheered as they held up homemade signs that read: "Music!" and "Music Rocks." Sean, 10, was in his element as he formed his mouth to make the buzzing noise necessary to play the golden-colored instrument that resembles a tuba. The fourth-grader was among a group of about 70 third-, fourth- and fifth-graders who performed in the Columbia school's first Music Parade.

YOU ALMOST wonder if people have to convince themselves that it won't be embarrassing to live on Golden Sunset Way or Basket Ring Road. Or Blue Barrow Ride, a few of Columbia's oddly saccharine street names. One can forgive the namers who had 1,000-plus streets to label -- none of which could duplicate street names in Baltimore, Baltimore County or Anne Arundel County. But Ralph Tavern Lane? Okay for Ralph maybe. If you were a naturalist or environmentalist, you'd have no second thoughts.

Anne Arundel County police have charged a 22-year-old West River woman with prostitution - and say charges are pending against her husband, who is accused of facilitating some of her rendezvous. Elizabeth Jeffers of the 5700 block of Muddy Creek Road was charged with engaging and soliciting prostitution after police say she advertised an escort service on Craigslist.org, which police said she operated with the help of her husband. A vice detective answered a posting on the Web site, where Jeffers reportedly used the name Ann. Officials say she instructed the detective to come to her home, where she offered him an erotic massage followed by a sex act of his choice for $170.

When third-grade teacher Jhonna Adams, 26, got engaged on the Fourth of July, she thought she would be the only teacher returning to Jeffers Hill Elementary School at summer's end with a big ol' sparkler on her finger. "I thought I would have this unique information to share," she said. Boy, was she wrong. During teacher meetings in August, it soon became clear that three other teachers were also engaged to be married. And that was just the beginning. By the time students returned from spring break in mid-March, 10 teachers were engaged, including three out of four on the kindergarten team.

For Gillian Engelbrecht, 11, a fifth-grader at Jeffers Hill Elementary School, one of the best parts about creating a mosaic for the school has been working on a team. Instead of working on one section from concept to completion, the students share responsibility. "They made us work on different things," she said, as she scraped grout between spaces on a near-completed section of the mosaic last week. Like other students involved in the project, Gillian came up with an idea for a section, but then worked to place bits of broken pottery, shells and other objects on a design created by someone else.
