The Howard County school system may have to search for a new location for a much-needed elementary school because the owner of the property it is trying to buy is embroiled in a legal dispute that has held up the sale. Meanwhile, the Board of Education has sued the property owners in Circuit Court, alleging that they reneged on the $2.64 million deal to sell the school system the 10.1 acres in Elkridge. But the developer can't complete the deal until a lien dispute is resolved with a shareholder, Barry Mehta, who has fought several battles with the county over the years involving an adult book store and operating a flea market at the site of a former drive-in movie theater.

After 31 years of teaching Howard County elementary-schoolers - notorious for trading germs like baseball cards - Herb Hayes retired Friday having never taken a sick day. Never. "That's uncanny," said Robert Bruce, principal of Centennial Lane Elementary School, where Hayes taught for 23 years. "That's a Cal Ripken kind of thing." Hayes, 58, acknowledges he has missed work because of jury duty (twice), but was never under the weather enough to stay home - or to justify having to draw up lesson plans for a substitute.

For some Baltimore County students and their parents, getting ready for the school year that starts today involves more than just restocking the pencil box and buying new clothes. These parents must prove that the children really live in the county - even if the kids have been going to county schools for years. The new policy applies to students moving from elementary to middle school or from middle to high school. And it is designed, at least in part, to prevent students who live outside Baltimore County from fraudulently attending county schools, a concern voiced in recent years by lawmakers.

Several pupils, in kindergarten through second grade, stood on the stage at Centennial Lane Elementary School trying to twirl "poi balls," just as they had seen Kathleen Haller demonstrate. Haller, who was giving a presentation Thursday at the school on Hawaiian culture, dance and music, made it look so easy. She simply held one poi ball by the string in each hand and twirled them at her sides and even over her head. Her son, Tom Haller, 20, who was helping out with the show, did an even faster and more elaborate demonstration with the poi balls, which are used in Hawaii for dance and exercise, Haller explained.

Worthington is one of about 600 schools nationwide participating in the program, said Susan Ay, the school's speech pathologist.

The minute the doors closed at Centennial Lane Elementary School last month, a small army of construction workers invaded half of the building, embarking on a 10-week journey to equip the school with systemic renovations in time for the beginning of the academic year next month. "They literally came in at 4 p.m. that afternoon," said Robert Bruce, principal at Centennial Lane. "They tore out everything within a week and a half. It was like an empty shell." Since 1992, the Howard County school system has completed about 45 similar projects in its schools with the same frantic pace.

Misook Jeon's 8-year-old daughter isn't the only member of the household attending school these days. For the past seven weeks, Jeon has been sitting inside a classroom at St. John's Lane Elementary School learning about what questions to ask at parent-teacher conferences, how to read report cards and school newsletters and how to help her child with homework despite her limited English. Jeon, a South Korea native, is part of a second-year program at the Ellicott City school that seeks to bridge the cultural and educational differences between immigrant parents and their children who attend Howard County schools.

On a recent morning at Featherbed Lane Elementary School, the lights were out in a trailer where third-graders attend class. Blood dripped from the head of a teacher struck by an opening door as she tried to squeeze through a congested hallway. And a speech pathologist scrambled to find a desk to use to help a boy. Otherwise, it was a good day at the Woodlawn school, which has suffered from official neglect for years despite repeated complaints by parents about the cramped, makeshift conditions.

HAPPY 2001, everyone! The holiday season is a time to reflect on treasured traditions passed from one generation to another. One Ellicott City family has just such a tradition. It started June 7, 1958, when Ann and Sam Pagnotta were married in Buffalo, N.Y. The wedding crown worn by Ann has been in the family ever since. Each of the couple's daughters, Carole Ann and Rose Ann, wore the crown for her first Holy Communion. Rose Ann, now Rose Ann Pagnotta-Lee, also wore it when she got married.

The Centennial Lane Elementary School fourth-graders who asked Howard County officials last night for a footbridge over the busy street in front of their school have learned research techniques and presentation skills, but their goal still seems elusive. The bridge they crave over the 13,111 daily vehicle trips the county has measured on Centennial Lane might be moving farther from reality instead of nearer, based on county capital budgets of the past few years. The budget adopted last spring called for design of Centennial's bridge now, with construction to begin after July 1, followed by construction of a similar bridge at Rockburn Elementary in Elkridge.
