WHAT A GREAT sadness overcame me, just back from holiday, reading the newspapers. Dr. Walter E. Loch and his wife, Mary, had been brutally slain in their Guilford home on a summer weekend. Steadily -- like a breeze -- a shadow settled over and began to envelop me.I'd been out in the wilds of Colorado -- well, the semi-wilds, and then for a peep at the innocent and quick glory of summer in Maine.All had seemed well and hopeful in our universe. There were no newspapers to read. There was no need to fear my fellow man.I had started my walks in a park at daybreak carrying a big stick.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz proposed a new 700-seat elementary school near the center of Towson on Friday to relieve overcrowding, telling the school superintendent that he won't fund the school system's plans to renovate two other schools. In a letter to Baltimore County school Superintendent Dallas Dance, the county executive said he is withdrawing support for renovations to the former Loch Raven Elementary and Cromwell Valley Elementary because they are too costly.

Like a lot of people who live in New York City, interior designer Loch McGaechy likes to escape the crowds and grime whenever he can. But unlike those who are heading to beaches, mountains or rural retreats, when McGaechy loads his dogs and his luggage into his station wagon and heads south, his destination is a simple story-and-a-half frame cottage in the Woodbrook area of Baltimore County. He discovered the house about a year and a half ago, after the agent who was showing it hesitated even to take him inside.

Here's some weather trivia: On Maryland's rainiest day, Aug. 23, 1933, nearly 8 inches fell. Now, after $29 million worth of bulking up, the Loch Raven Dam in Baltimore County is designed to withstand three days of that kind of rainfall, and more. "I guess you could put this under the better-safe-than-sorry category," said Robert H. Murrow, spokesman for the Baltimore Department of Public Works. "The lesson for us all in the last few weeks is sometimes even the unimaginable becomes real."

A Baltimore County historical commission delayed a decision Thursday that would push forward a Baltimore County public school plan to renovate and reuse Loch Raven Elementary School. More than a dozen community members attended the commission's meeting and voiced opposition to the school system's plan, saying the building's current use as a community center fits the neighborhood's needs. Architects for the school system argued that their $35 million plan - which would demolish all of a 1970 portion and part of a 1949 addition to the 1947 building - would return the school to its original use and allow it to continue to serve as a focal point for the Loch Raven Village neighborhood.

Timonium resident and poet Ann Kolakowski says that what she discovered when her grandmother turned 99 has haunted her to this day. Now, nearly 12 years later, she has published a book of poetry about that discovery. "When my brothers and I were clearing out our grandmother's home when she moved to an assisted living facility," said Kolakowski, "I found a shabby notebook. I opened it and read, 'Marian Brown, Domestic Science/Warren School, Maryland.' I was really confused. " In fact, the town in which her grandmother, Florence Marian Brown Eichler, had spent her childhood and attended Warren School had been bought, razed and flooded in 1921 to create a municipal water supply.

Ever wonder which room in the house has the most dust?  Anthony Zverev  did. So he used dust distribution as the subject of his recent STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) project. Triggered on by his own bout of sneezing and coughing in the fall, the Villa Cresta Elementary School fourth-grader was driven to research dust mites and dust allergens. He then made the hypothesis the living room would have the greatest concentration of dust and outside would have the lowest.
