The students at Joppatowne High couldn't ignore the words spray-painted on the front of their school in the fall of 1992 -- "KKK," "White Power," "Go Back to Africa" and "Nigger."Though the visible signs of racism could be cleaned up, the underlying messages made an impact on the students and staff."We saw some ugly stuff on the walls of the school," said Principal Doris Williams. "What it did to the student body can't be denied."The vandalism also set in motion the formation of a committee of students and teachers to address the issues of bigotry and multiculturalism.

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your column about the local history of the Joppa Town area last week. I especially hadn't known the part about the once flourishing port that had to be abandoned along with others along the northern bay and Bush River. Having grown up in Catonsville myself, I was also familiar with your comparing the modern version (1960s onward) with Columbia in Howard County, which was planned and built at about the same time. One more interesting personal thing was that I began my professional teaching career at Havre de Grace High School in 1973.

Earmarks by Maryland lawmakers from both political parties would funnel more than $200 million to projects in every corner of the state. A final vote on the omnibus spending measure could come as early as tonight, though opposition from a few Democrats and most Republicans in the Senate could jeopardize chances for approval in its current form.
