Today is the big day for Carroll County public school students, as they return to the classrooms for another year of readin', writin' and 'rithmetic.There was no mistaking it, as children of all ages could be seen standing on corners waiting for the bus to come.It is always amazing to me to watch the metamorphosis that takes place with children as the school year goes from beginning to end.On the first day, their faces perk with smiles and excitement.

Fewer students have enrolled at Anne Arundel Community College this year than last, but school officials say they are not worried."It's not a panic situation for us," said Leonard Mancini, dean of student services. "It's happening, and we need to do some things about it."Figures released by the school Friday show that enrollment dropped 5.1 percent, from 11,890 last fall to 11,278 this year.Much of the decline stems from an 8.2 percent decrease in part-time students, caused in part because of an 11.3 percent decline in part-time evening students.
