An elected Baltimore County school board has been a hot issue for decades, and The Sun has opted to support a partially elected board ( "Balto. Co. should have a hybrid school board," March 17). Your rationale is that "the desire for elected members on the school board in Baltimore County has been consistent for so long that it cannot be ignored. " But as a former legislator I think that is not a good enough reason. What is lacking is any consideration of how an elected board benefits children's education.

The first thing you should know about David Epstein's prize-winning essay is that he didn't get any help from his parents. If the 17-year-old's piece about the merits of U.S. peacekeeping sounds like something out of Foreign Affairs magazine, that's because Epstein subscribes to the journal, not his folks. While other teen-agers are learning pop music lyrics, Epstein, an A-student at Pikesville High School, is digesting the United Nations charter. So it would be little surprise that Epstein won a $10,000 scholarship for his first-place essay, except that he didn't tell anyone he had entered the competition.

Early this month, I shopped at Loehmann's for the last time. The national off-price, fashion retailer chain was bankrupt and liquidating. As a kind of monument to local fashion history and my own past, the Timonium store beckoned me from Pennsylvania for a final shopping trip. It was an emotional experience for this 69-year-old, who first shopped at Loehmann's in spring 1962. A fashionista before the word became trendy, my mother discovered the store on Joppa Road, near our Baltimore County home, and she knew her only daughter would find the perfect prom dress there.

Dorothy E. Hardin, principal at Pikesville High School, marched through the hallway and up the stairs to a science lab on the second floor. Her school had a chance to pick up $1,000 in grant money, if the science department chairwoman would simply fill out a form. "This is all you have to do," Hardin told the teacher, who agreed to do it right away. "I appreciate it, because we want that money." Last night, Hardin was named Principal of the Year by the Maryland Association of Secondary School Principals.

While growing up as brothers, Andrew and Jesse Schwartzman relished head-to-head competition. They were never far from the next argument, the next wrestling or shoving match, the next trip to the back yard, where the boys would grab their lacrosse sticks and re-enact the ritual. The older Andrew would fire shot after shot at Jesse, who was charged with defending the goal. This week, they are treading on new ground. For the first time, the brothers, who teamed up three years ago to lead Pikesville High to a state championship, will be operating on opposing sidelines.
