Business entrepreneur and philanthropist William Polk Carey, who donated more than $100 million to Maryland schools and universities, spent most of his life outside the state, but he never stopped thinking of himself as a Baltimorean. Mr. Carey, 81, died Monday at a West Palm Beach, Fla., hospital. But he left a legacy here. He maintained a rooting interest in state politics and the Baltimore Orioles. He was proud of the six generations that his family spent in Baltimore, relatives and friends said, and the influence they've had on the city.

T he debate over the $410,000 in bonus payments to former University of Maryland School of Law dean Karen Rothenberg has largely devolved into an argument between two camps. Her defenders say that the focus on the payments is smearing the record of an excellent and transformative leader for the school, and her detractors are appalled by the amount of money being thrown at a public employee. There's truth to both sides, but that argument misses the point. Ms. Rothenberg was, by all accounts, an excellent dean.

The fight over the fate of Towson Catholic High School escalated Tuesday when the alumni association filed suit against the school's parish and its pastor over the abrupt closing of the school. The group is seeking an injunction to keep the school open at least another year. "This closing is a slap in the face to the alumni and to anyone who ever loved this school. We were ready to remedy this through various options, but we could not get the archdiocese to the table," said alumni association president Paul Mecinski, who announced the lawsuit at a rally last night.

The decision to close Towson Catholic High School and the resulting outcry from students, parents and alumni has revealed a long-brewing disconnect between the school and the parish that has been its home since 1922. Only 17 of the 163 students who were enrolled for the fall are parishioners at Immaculate Conception Church; 86 percent live outside Towson. With the school facing a $650,000 deficit that included $160,000 in unpaid tuition from last year, parish officials announced last week that they would close what some described as a money-losing ministry that they could no longer afford to subsidize.

Is giving a student an alarm clock part of the answer to truancy in Baltimore? Experience tells us that it can be. But make no mistake: There's no simple answer to this vexing problem. There are, however, a number of things that we know can help. In the University of Baltimore School of Law's Truancy Court Program, we work with students every week who are in danger of joining the thousands of city children who do not attend school. Since 2005, we have learned a few things about what connects truancy, suspension, dropping out, crime and violence.
