Major collisions between trains are not an everyday event in this country, but when they do happen, the results can be calamitous. Over the last quarter-century, Maryland has suffered two particularly horrific crashes, in Silver Spring in 1996 and Chase in 1987, in which a combined 27 people lost their lives. After each of these disasters, the question was raised: Isn't there a safer way to control trains? It's a particularly vexing problem for the nation's increasingly congested 140,000 miles of rail lines, particularly on the approximately 25,000 miles where heavy freight trains share the rails with Amtrak and commuter trains.

Folks who need their holiday spirits revved up should take in a performance of Pasadena Theatre Company's "It's a Wonderful Life" this weekend. I've seen this show every year since 1997 and enjoy it more each time. It has now become my favorite holiday entertainment. As almost everyone knows, Frank Capra's 1946 movie classic "It's a Wonderful Life" starred James Stewart as Bedford Falls banker George Bailey, who discovers that "no man who has friends is a failure." With the help of his wingless guardian angel, Clarence Oddbody, George learns that he has profoundly affected the lives of his friends, co-workers and family.

Pasadena Theatre Company's current production of "Jekyll and Hyde" is superbly acted and staged, philosophical and a psychologically charged thriller.In Leonard Caddy's version of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," the action remains in 1851 London, where Dr. Henry Jekyll conducts experiments to unlock the secrets of man's inner nature and his struggles between good and evil.Director Chuck Dick wanted to portray the dual character of Jekyll and Hyde in more than the black-and-white terms of good and evil, revealing the conflicting elements in the good doctor and his alter ego, Edward Hyde.

No writing and eyeballs are on print."These are the only limits on students during "Proud to Read" time -- an effort at the Anne Arundel County school to shore up lagging reading skills.Even though students can read anything that interests them -- including Teen magazine and comic books -- the reading period is "really painful" for some students, says Principal Judith Jenkins. "They are not good readers."
