Maintaining an environmentally friendly landscape at her family's home in Long Reach comes as second nature to Janine Pollack, who loves gardening and the outdoors. The pluses, some obvious and some not, are numerous. They include the inherent adaptability of native plants to the area's climate as well as their ability to attract insects, which attract birds, which attract wildlife. But the primary ecological benefit - which goes undetected by most visitors surveying the natural beauty of Pollack's outdoor canvas - is the ability of strategically placed landscaping to prevent polluted stormwater runoff from spoiling waterways and eventually fouling the Chesapeake Bay. Such benefits, and the principles behind them, will explained to visitors Sept.

Long Reach has two contenders for the CA Board of Directors. Ed Coleman, the incumbent, is pledging to serve with a balanced approach of Long Reach interests. Looking for initiatives combined with common sense and solid management approaches he provides an innovative yet logical view. As a former Long Reach representative on the CA Board, I believe planning for the future but keeping the fiscal and representative interest of the constituents a priority is of the utmost importance.

With his 0-3 team trailing visiting Atholton 14-0 at halftime Saturday, Long Reach senior Rob Carter had cause to be dismayed. But rather than get down, the running back got to work, rushing for two fourth-quarter touchdowns and leading his team to a 15-14 win on homecoming. "We just had to keep playing. We already knew the talent we had on this team, we just had to keep fighting. I never gave up on my team," said Carter, who gained 80 yards on 16 carries in the second half alone.

NEW YORK CITY - Kevin Liles is riding high. On a bright August afternoon, the Baltimore-born entertainment mogul is ensconced 35 stories above midtown Manhattan, enjoying lunch at one of the city's most exclusive hotels, the Mandarin Oriental. The restaurant is a favorite spot for the music impresario, who is dining with his mother and two of his three children. "There's so much I want to do," says the 46-year-old entrepreneur and former Warner Music Group executive.

When Sarah Suskind, 18, stopped by Long Reach High School with her mother, Shelly, on Thursday morning, she thought they were there to pick up a copy of her high school transcript. Instead, a secretary directed Suskind, a recent graduate, down the hall to the principal's office. Visibly confused, Suskind entered the office to find not the principal but her father, Steve Suskind, brother Spencer, Long Reach Assistant Principal Sam Richman, Howard County Public School System Chief of Staff Susan Mascaro and - perhaps strangest of all - Amy Colman, one of her elementary school teachers.

Pete Hughes earned his second state title in 32 years of coaching when Long Reach edged Centennial by six points for the Class 3A championship. He also guided the Hammond girls to a title in 1993, but Hughes really took pride in how hard the Lightning worked this winter. This was the team's first state title in indoor track. Long Reach really came on late, winning the Howard County and region titles before getting past Centennial for the state crown. "The key this year was senior leadership," Hughes said.
