A Harford County principal was slapped with two hazardous materials violations yesterday for delaying reports of two gas leaks at Riverside Elementary School in Joppatowne.James W. Terrell, chief of the county's Emergency Operations Center, said the citations were issued to the school's principal, Beretta Y. Goodwin, for failure to report the release of natural gas and carbon monoxide at the school. "We felt she was the one who was noncompliant," Chief Terrell said.The violations stemmed from incidents Jan. 25, when a faulty chimney fan sent nonpoisonous fumes through the main school building, and Feb. 3, when natural gas leaked in a kindergarten annex at the school on Stillmeadow Drive.

Leaky roofs are one thing. Gas leaks are another. Schools have a responsibility under state law to promptly report gas leaks to emergency response officials. The potential consequences are highly dangerous, even if the immediate symptoms of those exposed are only headaches and nausea.So Harford County's citation of the principal of Riverside Elementary School for violating the law on two occasions this year was amply justified. The citations should send a warning not only to the individual principal, but to the Harford County Board of Education that this law must be obeyed.

The state Board of Public Works has awarded Harford County $1,031,500 for park expansions and playground equipment. The county will receive $714,000 to partially fund the purchase of 66 acres near Dublin for a new community park. The purchase protects wooded areas and will also offer the northern Harford area new athletic fields, picnic pavilions and a playground, once the project is fully developed. A $212,500 grant will mean Prospect Mill Park in Bel Air grows by more than four acres.

The hundreds of mourners who gathered in Catonsville to say good-bye to Jane Frances Tyson, the grade school teacher's aide slain in a parking lot holdup last week, heard her life compared to a gem."She was like a jewel, a precious jewel," said the Rev. Lou Martin, of St. Lawrence Catholic Church during yesterday's Christian Wake Service at the Leroy M. & Russell C. Witzke Funeral Home."It's almost like we've been violated," he said of her violent death. "She was a precious jewel taken from us."
