Finding that the risks of building a cell phone tower near tennis courts and athletic fields at Randallstown High School were too great, the Baltimore County Board of Appeals overturned yesterday a zoning commissioner's ruling to allow the project. The three-member panel debated the proposal for about an hour before unanimously agreeing that T-Mobile should not be allowed to lease a patch of land on the high school campus to build the tower. "I don't think a school is an appropriate place for a cell tower," said Margaret M. Brassil, chairwoman of the panel considering the cell tower case.

A Baltimore County man paralyzed from the waist down in a 2004 shooting at Randallstown High School was awarded $21.4 million Monday in a civil case against the two men convicted in the attack. Baltimore County Circuit Judge Kathleen Cox ruled in favor of William "Tipper" Thomas, now 26, who was shot twice outside in the school parking lot about a month before he was scheduled to graduate. The gunmen - Matthew McCullough and Tyrone Brown - did not appear in court Monday and did not have attorneys in the civil case.

William "Tippa" Thomas III, He didn't know who shot him. He didn't know how many bullets were fired that day. And he didn't know why anyone would open fire on a crowd of students at his high school on a sunny Friday afternoon in the midst of graduation preparations and prom season. So for six days, William "Tippa" Thomas III, who was left partially paralyzed by the May 7 shootings at Randallstown High School, wheeled himself into courtroom No. 2 in Baltimore County Circuit Court and listened.

William Thomas doesn't want anyone to pity him, and he doesn't want to spend his life feeling sorry for himself.

With a passion for constitutional questions that bubbles just below the surface, a group of mostly foreign-born students from Randallstown High School beat out teams from schools in Montgomery, Washington and Charles counties for a chance to represent Maryland at a national social studies contest. Perhaps it is because they come mostly from Nigeria, Liberia, Grenada and Egypt, countries that have all seen political turmoil, that these students, with the help of their teacher, have turned the new experiences of living in a democracy into a quest to win the We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution National Finals to be held in Washington this weekend.

One Randallstown High School parent wants to use the school parking lot, the site of a quadruple shooting, as the site of a prayer vigil tonight. Eleanora Franklin, whose son is a senior football player at the school, said she organized the prayer vigil because "praying is all we can do right now." The gathering, she said, will be held to lift the spirits not only of the four victims - one of whom remains hospitalized - but also teachers, students and parents. "It has touched us all," she said.

Given what happens daily around here - and just about everywhere else these days - it comes as no surprise to discover, after a search of The Sun's computerized news morgue, that the last time this columnist mentioned Randallstown High School it was in commentary about a shooting on the vast parking lot there. Some young fool with a 9 mm semiautomatic Glock drove up to the school and handed the pistol to another young fool, who got into a brawl and opened fire on a crowd of students. That was on a lovely Friday afternoon in early May 2004, right after a charity basketball game that had finished the school day. Bullets hit four young people, leaving one of them, William "Tippa" Thomas III, paralyzed from the waist down, another tragedy wrought by fools empowered by guns.

Jackson, 24, of Owings Mills was ordered held without bail yesterday on an 18-count indictment that charged him with the same crimes that prosecutors dropped in 2005, when they could not find their key witness.
