For Ken Hovet, life now is a mixture of relief, anger and anxiety. The 43-year-old former Oakland Mills High School athletic director and football coach got his teaching job and back pay restored by the Howard County school board this week. Today, he is due in Circuit Court, seeking $113,000 in legal fees and damages from his fight to obtain access to documents he needed to prepare a defense against charges that he should be fired in a grade-changing scandal. But important as all that is, there is something more vital to Hovet, a plain-spoken father of three who agreed to be interviewed yesterday in the downtown Washington law office of Thomas R. Bundy III, a 1991 Oakland Mills High graduate who represented Hovet.

Konyinsola Oshikoya, a 14-year-old sophomore at Howard County's Oakland Mills High School, is always on the lookout for new members of the Alpha Achievers.

For 15-year-old Jennifer Bryant, the meaning of Howard County's decades-long celebration of Race Unity Day on Sunday is simple and clear. "It's always going to be important to celebrate racial diversity. If we don't, we get farther and farther apart," the Oakland Mills High School sophomore said. The idea that honoring differences will draw people together has eluded millions of Americans who mostly live and socialize among their own, and send their children to racially separate schools.
