With more than a third of precincts reporting, Siddiqui, a pediatrician from Clarksville, led with more than 18,000 votes. Giles, the board's vice chairman, was second, and Dyer, an attorney from Ellicott City who mounted an unsuccessful school board attempt in 2006, was close behind.

Ask any of the 10 Board of Education candidates what the pressing issues are and most agree on redistricting, student performance and aging schools. But to solve those and other problems, each candidate will bring a different approach based on his of her experience, which varies with age, occupation and previous involvement with school-related issues. No matter who is elected Nov. 7, one thing is for sure: It will be a drastically different board as new members step in and the panel increases from five to seven members.

On Dec. 6, 2010, Larry Cohen and I brought charges to the Howard County Board of Education Ethics Committee concerning board member Allen Dyer's interaction with the student member of the board. A hearing on our charges was not held until March 3, 2011. The decision was not reported until April 12, 2011. We were advised that we were to maintain confidentiality until the Ethics Board made the results public. Mr. Cohen and myself have made no public or private statements. However, Mr. Dyer has on several occasions published information and documents on the Internet and has made public statements with impunity.

Ellen Giles and Janet Siddiqui are both very good friends of mine. I had the honor, pleasure and privilege of serving with them on the Howard County Board of Education for four years. They are smart, dedicated, knowledgeable, hard-working, caring and conscientious. They are both running for re-election to the Board of Education based solely on their desire to serve the best interests of our children. Throughout this campaign, Ellen and Janet have been negatively criticized and personally attacked by some of their opponents and their followers.

Denim, bandannas and cowboy hats were de rigueur under the tent next to the Baltimore Arena. After all, this was the pre-concert VIP reception for the Metris 14th annual concert to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. And this year, the featured artists were the Recording Industry of America's "Country Band of the Century" -- Alabama, with local opening act the Hard Travelers. Some 1,100 cowpokes and cowgirls moseyed alongside buffets of barbecue as well as more citified chow, exchanging "howdys" in a right neighborly fashion.

As a former elected Howard County Board of Education member and a retired Howard County educator, I'd like to give my support to Howard County Superintendent, Dr. Renee Foose. I was not happy with the results of the survey of her performance that came out from HCEA. One of the roles I had as a Howard County educator was principal. Being a leader is a challenging task and awesome responsibility. You share credit when things go well and you take the full blame and responsibility when things go wrong.

With three last-minute entries -- including two candidates who ran unsuccessfully in 2000 -- the slate of candidates running the Howard County Board of Education is set. The latest additions, who signed up Monday, the filing deadline, brings the total number of candidates to 14. Allen Dyer, 59, a lawyer and computer consultant, said this election is important because of the board's expansion from five to seven members. "The transition is critical," Dyer said, adding that a majority of the board's seats are up for election.
