David Hart is a bit of an anomaly in the world of fashion. In an industry dominated by larger-than-life personalities, fickle taste and cutthroat politics, he prefers to play nice, stay cool and let his work do the talking. "I really appreciate all the people that I've met and the relationships I've built," said Hart, 32. "I treat people the way I like to be treated. I really respect the talent of the people I've worked with. As a result, people respect me as well. " His approach has ingratiated him with the fashion elite.

EVER SINCE Brooklyn Park High School closed its doors in 1990, its alumni have felt that a piece of their history has been taken. As renovations on the old building progress, the exterior becomes less and less familiar to the thousands of Brooklyn Parkers who passed through its doors from 1954 to 1990. The new middle school and Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts to be housed there will be welcome assets to the community, but the strength of nostalgia lingers. Two years ago, the Old Brooklyn Park Improvement Association sponsored an open house to give everyone a last chance the view the building before renovations.

IT ISN'T OFTEN that reunions are held for an entire school. It's difficult enough to organize a reunion for a single class. But the Brooklyn Park High School Alumni Association has risen to the occasion. The association's Second Annual Brooklyn Park High School All Class Reunion will be held from 8 p.m. to midnight Nov. 2 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie. Brooklyn Park High School closed in 1990 to make way for a community middle school and North County High. The building on Hammonds Lane was renovated for multipurpose use. It now is the home of the Chesapeake Arts Center, the North County Recreation Center, the Brooklyn Park Senior Center, the County Police Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education offices and Brooklyn Park Middle School.

I HOPE everyone enjoys the chocolates they receive today. I'm not a chocolate person myself, and my children prefer licorice and Sweet-tarts. Still, I wound up melting more than 20 pounds of the stuff to make eggs and molded candies for friends and relatives this Easter.Once you start something like this, it becomes a tradition, and everyone comes to expect homemade candies for Easter. But, it is fun. So if you received homemade chocolates as a present, be sure to thank that person -- or thank them again.

Severna Park High School has let out for the day, and about 10 girls are in the school's dance studio, kicking and twirling in unison as "Santa Baby" booms through the small room. They are rehearsing for a school concert scheduled for Thursday. Senior Lindsay Moore is among them. She has been dancing since she was in preschool, and she hopes to be a Rockette some day. Recently, her ambitions took a step forward (or should that be a jete?) when she won a four-week summer scholarship to the Joffrey Ballet School in New York.
