The private Key School in Annapolis announced Wednesday that it finalized the purchase of Annapolis Golf Club - a deal that was unsuccessfully challenged by golf course neighbors. The school, located in the Hillsmere community, plans to use the golf course property for three athletic fields, eight tennis courts, a baseball diamond, a nature trail and a pool, according to school officials. There will be maintenance facilities on the property, but 44 acres of the 70-acre tract will remain undisturbed, according to a letter from Board of Trustees President Missy Attridge and Head of School Marcella Yedid that was sent to Key School families.

More than 50 Maryland middle-schools students have been building a house during a summer camp in Annapolis - not a routine task for teens and preteens. "I came here skeptical," acknowledged JJ Jennings, 13, a rising eighth-grader at the Key School in Annapolis. "Why am I paying to do labor?" To be fair, the house is a small-scale project - 210 square feet and sitting on trailer in the Key School parking lot. But that doesn't mean it's a not a big deal. Complete with solar panels and a rainwater filtration system, the compact home is designed to have the smallest possible carbon footprint.

The 10th annual Annapolis Book Festival at the Key School promises volumes. Faculty and parent volunteers are expecting more than 2,000 visitors on the 15-acre campus Saturday, April 21, for a free, family-friendly celebration of the written word. The day offers opportunities to meet more than 40 authors, participate in panel discussions, preview the latest best-sellers and browse through thousands of new and gently used books. While adults pursue classes in creative writing or delve into election news, 21st-century China and the popularity of audio books, children can learn bookbinding, indulge in science experiments or exercise at the "Hunger Games" training center.

As someone whose career in public service was launched from the trenches of community activism, I could not agree more with Yara Cheikh, who wrote in the May 10 issue of this newspaper that citizen advocacy was the driving force behind school reform ( "Sen. Jim Brochin doesn't serve big government" ). The voice of parents and neighbors is and has always been the prime mover behind education in this county. I am only sorry that I did not make that as clear as I might have at the Idlewylde Community Hall senatorial forum to which Ms. Cheikh referenced.

An Anne Arundel County judge handed the Key School a victory Tuesday, allowing the 55-year-old Annapolis private school to go ahead with plans to turn the 70-acre Annapolis Golf Club into an outdoor campus for athletics.

Goetzke. An appeal, however, is possible. "This is an important day for us," said Marcella Yedid, head of the school, noting that the school has been working with Anne Arundel County on the site plan.

Mittens McGee doesn't exactly look like an artist. He's a friendly, fat, gray-and-white cat who commands a comfy couch in his room with a view at the SPCA of Anne Arundel County in Annapolis. A few weeks ago, though, teen volunteers wrangled Mittens McGee into creating a work of art. They dipped his feet in pet-safe, water-soluble paint and coaxed him to walk across a canvas. The result - a bright, abstract painting that's reminiscent of fall leaves - will be sold next weekend along with other feline, canine and leporine works of art. "We get their feet in the paint and they hop around," said Kirstyn Northrop Cobb, the SPCA's outreach coordinator.
