Police officers assigned to a small Eastern Shore high school arrested more than a dozen students in recent months for what critics say was simply misbehavior - prompting investigations by the NAACP and the Maryland attorney general's office. In one case, a 14-year-old girl known as a good student was handcuffed and escorted to the principal's office for talking back to an officer and refusing to sit down. The spate of arrests at Crisfield High School apparently began after the town Police Department stationed an officer at the high school in January.

A PHONE CALL home from the principal's office is not usually met with positive feelings. But Sharon Herring, principal of Freetown Elementary, has turned that misconception around. When pupils perform a special act of kindness or do well in their academic work, they take a trip to the principal's office to make a "sweet phone call home." The calls are made from an M&M candy phone. Guidance Counselor Carolyn Crawley says the calls not only promote good citizenship, but also help build self-esteem.

He heard some scary things about the principal. One of the things is that the principal uses the tall, bad students for coat hangers. After Hubie met her, he found the principal wasn't so bad after all."-- Erin KettererLisbon Elementary" 'The Bear Scouts' by Stan and Jan Berenstain is my favorite book because Pa Bear and the scouts went camping and they had so much fun until Pa Bear got chased by bats."

For Philip L. Arbaugh, Manchester's new town manager and a former elementary school principal, running a town isn't much different from running a school.After a month in his new job, the longtime educator observed: "I spent 27 years as a manager, basically what I'm doing now, but instead of talking about kids reading, I'm talking about drilling wells. But I'm still talking to people and trying to solve problems."He's found more similarities than differences, he said. Sometimes the town office -- like the principal's office -- "is one of those environments where people who come here are not always happy.

Thank you!In 1991 I wrote a column on the power of thank-you notes. (Reprinted in these pages two weeks ago.) It drew, by far, the greatest number of comments I've received for a single column among the 524 I've written.Some of you sent me thank-you notes. Almost all testified to the extraordinary impact of saying thanks.So, belatedly, it's my turn to thank you, my readers, from Seoul to San Jose. The occasion is the cessation of this column. In short, I've decided to give my Ball Pentel Fine Point R50 pen and Weston Bowl Mill wooden laptop writing desk a rest.
