Laurel High School once again had a successful Grad Night thanks to the support of many. I can't possibly thank everyone in limited space, but I want to especially thank Mayor Craig Moe and the city of Laurel for continuing to support and sponsor our all-night, substance-free celebration; and Levet Brown, and the Laurel Boys and Girls Club for his support and use of their facilities. Thank you to all the businesses, individuals and groups that have continued to support this program through donations of money, food, door prizes or services — some for 23 years!

The city of Laurel installed speed registers that indicate the speed of oncoming traffic approaching Laurel High School and posted before the actual speed cameras. After a year of data, it would be appropriate to check the data to determine if the registers had an impact on accidents and the number of tickets issued. If the number of tickets at this location declined from the previous period and the number of accidents were reduced or negated, in the interest of safety for the children, it would seem logical to post these speed registers at all schools in Laurel.

It started as idle chatter on the beach. My family was vacationing with old friends we've known since our Laurel High School days in the early 1970s, Richard and Denise Pond. Rich was talking about his father, Clayton Pond, an American Indian and World War II veteran, who died in 1989. His father was typical of many World War II veterans, and reluctant to talk about his military service. He would occasionally drop hints and tidbits that made his children curious, but when pressed for details, he clammed up. At Rich Pond's request and after some digging, I found an amazing story of a small-town hero who was written about in newspapers across the country in the 1940s.

It's about an hour before showtime, and 16-year-old NicKayla Tucker, of Laurel, is obviously enjoying the last-minute preparations for her NicKayla & Friends concert Saturday at the Comfort Inn in Beltsville. Dressed in Nike pants and a muscle T-shirt, she joined her dancers in a number, stood back and watched, gave them a few instructions, and rejoined the action, smiling throughout and exuding an energy that's contagious. "Hey, can you play 'No Permission,' " she asked her sound crew in the back of the auditorium, a song she wrote and planed to perform for the show.

Laurel Boys and Girls Club officials have not only decided to put off plans to open a charter high school in their Montgomery Street headquarters indefinitely, but they will not renew the lease of its current tenant, Princeton Day Academy, for next year. According to club president Levet Brown, the charter school is being delayed because club officials have not been able to raise the money needed to bring the building up to code in order to house a school in the facility. Brown said Princeton Day, a private high school with about 40 students, was using space in the annex portion of the building free of charge.
