Since his death several weeks ago, I've received a number of calls and e-mails from former students of Tom Longstreth, the celebrated St. Paul's School English teacher and coach, who was a much-beloved figure on the school's Brooklandville campus for 41 years. Tom was also my former neighbor and a prolific daily walker who could be seen striding along the streets of Riderwood, ramrod-straight and wearing his trademark khaki pants and blue button-down Oxford cloth shirt. In the warm months, he'd add a crumpled tennis hat to his wardrobe, his only concession to the elements.

On the bus ride home from a scrimmage in Pennsylvania, the lacrosse players from St. Paul's School were feeling good. The Maryland team was already ranked among the best in the nation, and the season was about to begin. The mood was light, conversation strayed from one subject to another until - these were high school boys - the talk turned to sex. Laughter broke out as one player recalled a scene from the movie "American Pie" in which a high school student films himself having sex with an unsuspecting girl and broadcasts it over the Internet.

For us to use this art form directly to reach people is not unusual," said Paul Tines, director of the Ward Center for the Arts, used by both St. Paul's School and St. Paul's School for Girls.

One solo changed Lin McEwan's life. About 10 years ago, as a sophomore at St. Paul's School for Girls, McEwan sang "Amazing Grace" at a school gospel show and received a standing ovation. Her uniquely low voice struck a chord with the crowd, and their overwhelming response sparked an interest that later led McEwan to pursue a career in music. "That was it," said McEwan, whose real name is Linda Thieman. "From then on, it was pretty much my passion." In the next few days, the Baltimore native will perform twice in the area.
