Nine Baltimore County schools, including Towson High, Dulaney High, and Loch Raven High, sent marching bands to the county's 26th Annual Marching Band Showcase on Sunday at Johnny Unitas Stadium at Towson University. The event served as an opportunity for the county's various marching bands to gather at the same place and enjoy each other's routines in a non-competitive environment. While the bands typically perform as a complement to their football teams during halftime, the showcase was an opportunity for the bands to take center stage as the main attraction.

The sight of bare walls in her classroom was too excruciating for Denise Webster. So the art department chairwoman at Loch Raven High School posted photocopy after photocopy of a painting that reflects how she and her students felt when they first saw those walls without their artwork. Called The Scream and painted by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, it shows a man holding his hands to his face in anguish. The source of their frustration: a flood that cascaded through the school late last month, resulting in the loss of hundreds of pieces of student artwork.

Charges against a former two-time high school state wrestling champion were dropped Friday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court because of what prosecutors called inconsistencies in the victim's statement. The charges — second-degree assault, robbery, reckless endangerment and theft — stemmed from an incident in September in which Patrick Downey III of Glen Burnie and two others were accused by a fellow North County High School student of not paying for a small bag of marijuana and then driving away while the 16-year-old victim was attempting to get back in the car. In asking Judge Paul A. Hackner to drop the charges against Downey, Assistant State's Attorney Brooke McKay said the 16-year-old told "numerous versions" of his story to police and prosecutors.
