Ralston is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Pikesville, an area in northwest Baltimore County. The Bromley Atlas of 1898 shows only Ralston and Sudbrook Park, the first of many communities to grow in Pikesville, according to the 1982 book, A Pictorial History of Pikesville by Beryl Frank. The book notes that the name Ralston has "gradually been forgotten" - a fact borne out by many who had to consult their maps to locate the boundaries of the neighborhood. Ralston is bordered by busy Reisterstown Road on the east, Sudbrook Road on the north and west and Slade Avenue on the south.

Teachers are held to tough standards Ari Kaufman's column "The world that teachers inhabit is far removed from the real one" (Opinion * Commentary, Oct. 26) contains two fundamental fallacies. First, Mr. Kaufman, who taught for less than three years, suggests that teachers bide their time in faculty rooms, complaining about their salaries and the awful way that society treats them. In the 12 years I have been teaching in private and public schools, the teachers I have met have spent their time laughing, bonding and sometimes crying after a rough day. Most times, we don't have time to chat at all; the only time we have is 10 minutes to scarf down lunch before moving on to the next class period.

Officials released a report yesterday on efforts to deal with the millennium bug. Most computer systems use two digits to keep track of the calendar year and experts say that without modifications, many computers will read 2000 as "00" and malfunction when the New Year begins.
