Their first school board meeting was delayed two hours by an ice storm and punctuated by an angry mob of parents. Ann M. Ballard and Joseph D. Mish Jr. called it a "baptism by fire." Their last meeting this month, though much less eventful, was a bit rushed - because of an approaching ice storm. In between the storms - a span of 10 years - Ballard and Mish saw the school system through some of its best and worst years. There were years - 1994, 1996 and 1997 - when Carroll schools ranked second in the state, barely trailing Howard County in Maryland's annual pupil assessment exams despite being severely outspent by its affluent neighbor to the south.

Questions about the city's decision to increase its parking fees and spend more money on garage decks and parking equipment dominated an hourlong public hearing held last night in Westminster to discuss next year's $25.8 million budget before it's set in stone next week. Joseph D. Mish Jr., a candidate for the city's Common Council, questioned the wisdom of increasing parking fines to augment city coffers. "You can trust that anyone who gets a $15 fine for parking is not going to come back and shop in downtown Westminster," he said.

Nobody on the Carroll County Board of Education -- especially Joseph D. Mish -- escaped criticism over its initial decision to remove the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday from next year's school calendar.The board, which restored the holiday last week after intense community pressure, was labeled arrogant, naive and insensitive for not recognizing the powerful symbolism of the day in the African-American community.However, the anger directed at Mish seemed to rise to another level of intensity.

SCHOOL BUDGETS and higher taxes are explosive political issues in school board elections. So, too, are controversies over "outcome-based" education and the "phonics vs. whole language" debate.These are among the red flags raised by the joint campaign of William Bowen and Jerry Brunst to win two open seats on the Carroll County Board of Education.

Bowen Jr. and Jerry L. Brunst.

Brunst, the two men challenging Ballard and Mish in the most heated school board race anyone can remember here."We have differed in the past," said Cheryl A. McFalls, who served on the board from 1987 to 1992.

Claiming that the Westminster Common Council doesn't reflect the conservative nature of the city and county, Joseph D. Mish Jr. wants to break into what he calls a "closed inner circle" and capture a seat on the panel. "I think people would really like a more conservative voice on the council," Mish said. "Someone who supports fewer regulations and no tax increases and who opposes the additional regulations that produce more red tape." Of the three newcomers running for office in the election May 12, the 63-year-old retired schoolteacher appears to have the greatest name recognition.

A month before municipal elections, six candidates are competing for three Westminster Common Council seats, with a former Carroll County school board member, a community activist and a businessman challenging the incumbents. It's no surprise that two-term Councilwoman Suzanne Albert and active first-termer Thomas Ferguson are seeking re-election. But an unexpected candidate, Joseph D. Mish Jr., also is running. Mish, 62, is a fixture at council meetings, where he represents the Parr's Ridge Condominium Association, a community of older residents off Uniontown Road.

So far, I'm not cheating my way through Kingdom Hearts, a game that is touted to contain about 40 hours of play. That means I've sampled only a relatively small portion. Still, it's worth discussing. No concise description does Kingdom Hearts justice, but its essence is a combination of Disney characters with the Japanese style of the Final Fantasy quest-and-battle game series on the Sony PlayStation 2. The result is intriguing and beautiful, with parts that deserve to be called inspired.
