On her first day as a junior at the brand new Manchester Valley High School, Christina Wingate didn't exactly embrace the dark blue and silver colors of her new school.

Her family's home fell, however, inside the boundaries for the new, $80 million high school being built to alleviate overcrowding at North Carroll.

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.
