IT WAS A hose-down day, one of the sultry sort that typify summer in Maryland. To reward myself for my sweaty garden labors, I treated myself to a shot of hose water. First, I let the stream of cold water wash my neck and face. Then, in a ritual that has been a part of my summers since I was a boy, I took a long sloppy drink of water gushing from the end of the hose. Later, when I researched hoses, I learned this could be considered mildly risky behavior. There could have been some chance that water standing in the hose contained potentially unhealthy levels of lead and other chemicals that leached through the walls of the hose.

The coaches at Easton High School have apparently seen lacrosse players Casey Edsall and Graham Dennis with the lighter and pocket knife that landed the two with suspensions ("A penknife, a lighter — and 2 suspensions," May 10). If anyone should be in trouble, it is the school board for not properly training its employees to be on the lookout for such items and to take appropriate action. If the coaches thought nothing of it, the other students thought nothing of it, and the parents thought nothing of it, the school board should think nothing of it. Anne Cerutti, Chester
