Sometimes teachers and administrators walk between the two buildings at Point Pleasant Elementary School. On some days, however, when time might not always allow for a walk, they drive. "It's a football field between us," said Karen Scheel, assistant principal at the Glen Burnie school, whose two buildings separate intermediate and primary classes, making for two different bus stop areas and a staff that must go back and forth throughout the day. That's why school officials are encouraged that the Anne Arundel County Board of Education approved a $3 million site work contract to revitalize the school's buildings and place everyone under one roof.

Avenue Montaigne makes what seems, at first, a bold statement: that art is entertainment, and drawing distinctions between the two is both foolish and self-defeating. The highbrow among us might beg to differ, arguing that there's no comparison between an Ibsen play and a soap opera. So might the more lowbrow, for whom classical music is a labor they don't care to endure. But, really, the vast majority of people understand that they like what they like, not for what it's called but for how it makes them feel.

It used to be that midseason was a tryout time and dumping ground for new television series that failed to make the networks' fall schedules. Giving flawed series a few showings to recoup some production costs made more sense than burying them before they ever aired - even if there was little hope of their ever catching on. But that's not the case anymore. Midseason has become a second season unto itself, and this year it is starting earlier than ever - tonight - with a lineup featuring the return of several of television's most popular shows, as well as a promising roster of new dramas, sitcoms and reality series.

DOES THE THOUGHT of speaking before a group terrify you? You're not alone. Surveys show that public speaking is one of the five most common fears. But help may be closer than you think. For 12 years, the Glen Burnie Toastmasters Club has been helping people face their fears. Jerry Dotterweick, club vice president of public relations, says he had passed up promotion opportunities before he joined a Toastmasters chapter more than 30 years ago. "I wasn't comfortable speaking before management," said Dotterweick, who worked in logistics at what was then Westinghouse in Linthicum.

GUESS WHAT'S in the trash can," my husband said gleefully as I pulled my car into the driveway.Twenty-two years into the marriage, I knew better than to guess at the answer. Exiting the car, I peered into the container."It's a black snake. I moved the trash can and it jumped right out," he continued. Shoving his hand in my face, he announced, "It bit me. Twice."Seconds later, back in the car, I questioned his decision not to seek medical care instead of waiting for me to return home and share his adventure."
