About 70 Korean parents combed through sample essay questions from the SAT in Centennial High School's media room on a recent evening. Down the hall an additional 60 parents learned about writing techniques for elementary pupils. With the addition of a writing section to the SATs and more and core subjects requiring written explanations, the focus of the seventh annual Korean Education Seminar was writing. The event attracted more than 300 people. "Because the dominant language at home might not be English, there is a large gap in writing," said Young-chan Han, a specialist with the system's International Student and Family Outreach Office.

Three pigs believed to have wandered from a troubled Carroll County farm have tested positive for trichinosis, the disease caused by a deadly parasite discovered in a malnourished pig removed from the property in the spring, state officials said yesterday. State veterinarians will test the remaining pigs on the 112-acre Marston farm, which has been under a swine quarantine since late April, said Kate Wagner, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Agriculture. Wagner said officials will seek permission from farm owner Carroll Schisler Sr. to test about 80 more pigs but have the authority to proceed if he declines.

A "For Sale" sign is planted next to the quarantine notice that reads, "No swine, living or dead, may enter or leave," at the entrance to a 112-acre Carroll County farm with overgrown fields and weathered fencing. The farm, in the western Carroll community of Marston, has been on the market for several months, since its owner, Carroll Schisler Sr., 60, moved to Pennsylvania this year, his attorney, Roland Walker, said. But neighbors suspect the farm might be the source of marauding pigs - something Schisler denies - and shake their heads at the latest reports of decomposing carcasses and unsanitary conditions at the shuttered facility.
