The thought of a child in harm's way gives Carolyn Roeding pause -- especially if it is her own.She worried so much about the lack of sidewalks on the route her oldest daughter, Laura, used to take to get to George Fox Middle School that she got involved in the local Parent-Teachers Association to lobby for sidewalks.And nearly a decade later, the new president of the Anne Arundel County PTA still worries, but mainly about other people's children."When I got involved I learned my kids had it relatively safe compared to some others," recalled Mrs. Roeding, a mother of three girls.

Carolyn M. Roeding says she can see herself becoming "the poster child" for the motto that every vote counts.The Pasadena community activist lost a place on the Democratic ballot for the District 31 House of Delegates race by only five votes, it was officially determined yesterday.Seven Democrats ran in that election, in which the top three finishers will go on to an Election Day run-off against three Republicans. Three delegates for the district will emerge."Every vote does count, and I guess I will be the poster child for that for the next 10 years," Roeding said after the votes were finally tallied and Thomas J. Fleckenstein, a county assistant state's attorney, was declared the winner.

Baron and Eleanor M. Carey, the investigators, expressed outrage that two Northeast High School students who had accused teachers of sexual abuse were made so uncomfortable that they had to transfer even before the teachers' trials.

For years, residents of the Pasadena neighborhood of Green Haven hated the streets outside their homes. Too much traffic. Too many people flying 20 or 30 miles over the speed limit. Too many children -- five between the end of 1989 and 1995 -- getting hit by cars.Then they discovered how to do something about their problem. That discovery may soon be emulated in unhappy neighborhoods across the state.In the mid 1980s, Pasadena residents bombarded county government officials with complaints and suggestions about the streets.

A rival of state Del. Joan Cadden charged yesterday that the incumbent has exaggerated her accomplishments in a campaign brochure.In the pamphlet, Mrs. Cadden, a Brooklyn Park Democrat who is seeking re-election in District 31, says she is "responsible for a statewide task force on school traffic and safety zones."Her opponent, Carolyn Roeding, chairwoman of the State Highway Administration's School Zone Traffic Safety Task Force, said that statement is "misleading."The task force was a culmination of efforts by many parents, elected officials and others who worked with the SHA after several children were injured, one fatally, in Glen Burnie and Pasadena, Mrs. Roeding said.

County traffic engineers believe they have a way to put sidewalks along Outing and Catherine avenues -- make the roads one way.By narrowing both roads to accommodate one-way traffic, Chief Traffic Engineer James Schroll says he would have room to install the long-awaitedsidewalks without having to buy extra land from homeowners.The high price of purchasing the extra right of way had blocked previous attempts to put sidewalks along the roads.The plan would affect both roads between Mountain Road and Duvall Highway, restricting Outing Avenue to northbound traffic and Catherine Avenue to southbound.
