While the host Loch Raven boys lacrosse team was working on a regional quarterfinal shutout, J.B. Cadorette was busy setting one school record and chasing another. In the Raiders' 22-0 rout of Randallstown on Saturday, Cadorette scored a game-high 10 goals, the most scored in a single game and one goal short of tying the single-season record of 50 set by his cousin Eric Friant in 2006. Teammate Wes Dingman totaled 13 points on four goals and nine assists to set the single-game record for most points and assists.

By the time the kids are in fifth grade, many school volunteers find it time to go back to work and are no longer able to volunteer. Not so for Ron and Wendy Duncan . But then again, they're not parents of elementary students, they're grandparents! They started volunteering when their grandson started kindergarten at Oakleigh Elementary; six years later, they are still there. As the boy moved up a grade, they moved up but they also continued to volunteer in the grades he completed.

To help mark the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, tree plantings are scheduled this weekend, and also in November, in the Loch Raven and Prettyboy watersheds. Both the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy and the Prettyboy Watershed Alliance will each host plantings on Saturday, Oct. 20, and the Prettyboy group will also conduct a planting on Saturday, Nov. 10.  The new trees are intended to help protect both the Loch Raven and Prettyboy reservoirs from runoff, and will also absorb pollutants that would otherwise enter the water supply. Together, the two reservoirs provide drinking water to 1.8 million people in the region every day. The Prettyboy Watershed Alliance received two grants from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, totaling $5,666, which will be used to plant 500 trees.

To say that No. 4 Loch Raven sweated out a 15-11, 9-15, 15-12, 15-7 victory over No. 7 Catonsville in the season opener for both teams certainly would be truthful.In more ways than one.Loch Raven first needed to overcome the stifling heat in the Catonsville gymnasium yesterday.

In the face of education and community issues that stretch across traditional neighborhood lines, leaders in the Loch Raven area have joined forces to resurrect the dormant Loch Raven Community Council. "It's been defunct for a number of years," Councilman David Marks, who represents the area, said.

Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance faced questions last week from the Baltimore County Planning Board and Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot regarding the controversial central area elementary school construction plan. "The reason we're asking the questions is before the county and state spend $31 million when all we're hearing is community upset about the scenario, we want to make sure we've explored every option for spending the right way," said Scott Jenkins, a member of the Baltimore County Planning Board.

Thanks to reporter Jon Meoli for his balanced article, "No Accord on Loch Raven Elementary" in the Jan. 22 issue of the Towson Times. We are writing because although we believe the story fairly reported Superintendent Dallas Dance's position, the article fell short in several ways from the perspective of the four community members representing the Loch Raven Village and Knettishall communities. The two primary concerns articulated by Dr. Dance in the article are that our children will not be able attend the new school and our community programs will be displaced.

Representatives from the Loch Raven Village and the Knettishall communities emerged from a meeting Friday with Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance as strident as ever in their opposition to a plan calling for reopening a school at the site of the former Loch Raven Elementary despite assurances that a revised plan addresses some of their concerns. "We heard their feedback and aside from just not doing the school, which would be their ultimate goal, we adjusted our thinking of what it should look like based on what they said to us," Dance said in an interview after the meeting.
