It's no secret that for the past eight months the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners had been conducting a robust search for the system's next CEO. With the board's selection of Gregory Thornton to take the helm, I believe the next CEO has been carefully chosen ( "New Baltimore schools chief navigated complex terrain in Milwaukee," Feb. 23). I am so honored to have been a member of the board at such a pivotal moment.

A student at Watkins Mill High School in Montgomery County has active tuberculosis and parents were told Feb. 6 in a letter that some other staff and students will be tested for the disease, though the risk of transmission is small. The letter from school and health officials told parents that the infected student is being treated and there is no additional risk of exposure. Those who need to be tested had classes with the infected student or an after-school activity between October and January.

Practically the second that the Towson Town Center opened at 10 a.m. Monday, Theresa Hall burst through the doors with her two children and 4-year-old nephew, in search of hot food and toilets that flushed. Entering her third day after losing power in her Edgewood home, Hall was tired of telling 6-year-old Faith and the 4-year-olds, Andrew and Brian, not to open the refrigerator so their food wouldn't spoil. She was tired of listening to her son and nephew complain that they were missing their favorite show, "SpongeBob SquarePants.

In a move that seems to defy logic, the county has decided to take away strawberry milk:  Come January, school cafeterias in Montgomery County will be missing the pinkest offering of the lunch line. Strawberry-flavored milk is on its way out. St. George reports: "The drink is not as popular as chocolate milk and not as nutritious as plain milk, officials say.
