While they had the undivided attention of the state's second-highest elected official, nearly two dozen pupils at Manchester Elementary gave Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele an earful on a range of issues including late-day lunches, lack of access to the computer lab and having to attend classes in portables. As chairman of the 31-member Governor's Commission on Quality Education, Steele came to the school in northeastern Carroll County to hear from pupils, school officials and area residents about what is working - and not working - at the school.

It was encouraging to read that a group of residents in Eldersburg and Sykesville were able to attract county officials and Jeff Degitz, the director of the county's Department of Recreation and Parks, to form a group to decide future trails in the South Carroll area. It appears this group, with support of county resources, will develop a feasibility study to obtain grant funding for trails that will serve residents in the local area. This will allow many of the unique destinations along the routes 26 and 32 corridors to be tied together, allowing citizens a healthy, safe and cost-saving alternative to travel by auto.

About noon every day, while sitting in social studies, Dakota Beatty's stomach begins to grumble. That's because Dakota isn't scheduled to have lunch until 1:05 p.m. at Manchester Elementary, about six hours after the bowl of Cheerios he usually eats for breakfast. He says he is so hungry during social studies that his stomach aches, he can't concentrate and his handwriting grows increasingly sloppy. "My whole class wants an earlier lunch," said Dakota, a fourth-grader. The flip side of the problem is pupils eating as early as 10:40 a.m. at some Carroll schools, about five hours before the end of the school day. School officials acknowledge that many pupils are eating lunch earlier and later as principals struggle with growing enrollments and do what they can to wedge more pupils into cafeterias that weren't built for so many children.
