It was one of those loud thumps that made Paul Cross think the boys had knocked over the television. His girlfriend instinctively knew otherwise. Peering out of her bedroom window late at night onto Route 99, Donna West saw orange flames leaping from a mangled pickup truck. "Paul, there's a car on fire in our front yard," she said. Cross laced up his sneakers and ran to the scene -- a decision that would save the 18-year-old driver's life. Cross found Eric Jason O'Brien Jr. of Woodstock unconscious, his torso dangling from his burning 1987 Ford F-150 at Route 99 and Raleigh Tavern Lane.

Carroll County's assistant superintendent for instruction, Dorothy "Dottie" Mangle, will retire this summer after 30 years as a teacher and administrator in county schools. Her retirement will end a five-decades-long string of first days of school for Mangle, who has been "going to school full time" since her mother signed her up for preschool at age 3. "I will have to find something to do the first day of school this year because when I see those yellow school buses on the road, I'm sure I'll be inclined to follow them somewhere, anywhere, to whatever school they're going to," the 52-year-old said in jest.

Congratulations, Renny Harlin. You've successfully exorcised all the horror out of The Exorcist. Exorcist: The Beginning, a prequel to William Friedkin's 1973 masterpiece of horror both psychological and physical, fills in the backstory - as if that were really necessary! - of Father Merrin and how he first encountered the demon Pazuzu. The first film, you'll recall, opens in East Africa with Merrin (Max von Sydow) at an archaeological dig, searching for something mysterious and nefarious.

EVERY DAY brings new evidence of the breakdown of Maryland's criminal justice system. Nothing short of a fundamental overhaul will do when the court system in the state's biggest city moves from one paralysis to another, the probation machinery is broken and criminals walk free even after committing heinous crimes. Two years ago in an editorial called "Getting Away with Murder," we urged top public officials to end this officially sanctioned miscarriage of justice. Our repeated appeals fell on deaf ears.

Hundreds of Carroll County third-graders will come home from school on March 21 with jars of food and, farmers hope, a better understanding of where that food comes from. To mark National Agriculture Day, 13 county elementary schools will watch local farmers and agricultural extension agents demonstrate how milk gets from farm to cereal bowl, or how a crop farm is the first step in the production of everything from bread to hamburgers to baseballs. "My focus when I go to the classroom will be bread," said Jean Knill, information officer for the Carroll County Farm Bureau, which offered the program to Carroll County's 21 elementary schools, 13 of which accepted.
