Thank you to everyone who has ever worn the uniform of the United States of America, saying goodbye to family and friends to travel far from home in the cause of freedom and leaving worried loved ones behind to pray for their return.On Veteran's Day, I used to think of my father, who served in the U.S. Navy before and during World War II. Now I also honor my son-in-law, U.S. Marine reserve Captain Dan Greif, who, at the young age of 32, is a veteran of foreign war in the Persian Gulf.*At the 8th Annual Maryland State High School Band Championships at Towson State University two weeks ago, Severna Park High School's Marching Band came away with some top honors: Best Drum Major, Corey Poorman, and Best Band Front, accepted by Silk Captain Genny Roanhouse.

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.

Anne Arundel school board members want facilities officials to examine how the system uses its schools and other buildings and how that might change in the future. Such a report would show "how we can best utilize facilities we currently have within the system," Vice President Konrad M. Wayson said at the board's meeting yesterday. Staff members would decide whether to conduct the study internally or hire an outside consultant to examine demographic patterns, such as age and population shifts; building conditions; and the locations of programs in schools, maintenance and training facilities, and offices.

Well, so far, so good.Arriving with one eye on the residue of poor old 1991 and the other on the political upheaval expected during its lifetime, 1-week-old 1992 is a lot less innocent than most New Years.It just managed to make its appearance without falling into one of the recessionary dips littering the way.The question to be answered by this January child is: How many dips can a recession take before it becomes the "D" word, defined by Webster as "a period of low general economic activity marked especially by unemployment?"

"OUR RECORDS may not be the longest, but our spirit is ever the strongest " So goes the fight song for Baltimore's Forest Park High School. Never were those words truer than over the weekend, when the Forester basketball team capped a Cinderella performance by winning the state's Class 1A championship.Not bad for a team that went 2-15 in the regular season against such city powerhouses as City, Douglass and Dunbar. The Foresters kept the games close; they just didn't have the manpower to compete against bigger schools.

A donation of $25 purchases an entire holiday meal for a family of five; $15 pays for the trimmings; and $10 covers the cost of a turkey.
