A 29-year-old Baltimore man was convicted of second-degree murder for stabbing another man to death at a Walbrook High School reunion nearly two years ago, the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office announced Monday. A city jury found James L. Dixon, of the 900 block of Kevin Road, guilty on Wednesday. It was his second trial on murder charges in the death of 23-year-old Carrington McNutt, who was stabbed in the neck and torso at the Patapsco Arena, where the reunion - attended by by roughly 900 people from the 1995 through 2005 graduating classes - was held.  Dixon's first trial ended with a hung jury in November 2011.

During a weekend gathering of black alumni from the University of Maryland Law School in which the continuing inequalities faced by African-Americans was discussed, one participant called for Baltimore to preserve the city's tradition of public pools. UM law professor Taunya Lovell Banks presented Saturday new work on the civil rights history of swimming in Baltimore and questioned whether Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is doing enough to keep the pools open and available. "Like mayors before her, when it's time to do budget cuts, the first think they look at are parks," said Banks.

I recently returned from my 35th high school reunion. Yes, I'm that old. I like going to these reunions because I find it interesting to see how people have - or haven't changed. The class clowns are still cracking jokes. The serious students still sit quietly and talk among themselves. Reminiscing is always a big part of school reunions and I've noticed the memories aren't always accurate. For example, at this last gathering one of my classmates made the comment that kids today are just not as respectful of their teachers as we were.

The first school reunion I ever attended was my 30th, and I went with great trepidation, having left Michigan not long after high school and having kept in touch with classmates only occasionally. I had a wonderful time, renewing friendships whose depth I hadn't realized at the time, and connecting with people I hadn't before.Taking my new husband to my 35th this spring was even more fun, because I wasn't scared. (It was extraordinary to hear many of my class' popular leaders say they had never been sure they were liked, in school, and that they had come to the reunion with great misgivings.

Sharon Scerback Baldwin and Dennis Kreps met in one of the world's most romantic cities and couldn't help but fall in love.The year was 1962. The place was Vienna, Austria. Sharon and Dennis were students at the American International School in Vienna, where his father, who was in the Air Force, and her father, who was in the Foreign Service, were stationed.They soon were inseparable, as Dennis' old yearbook attests. "His outstanding leadership cannot be questioned," the 1962-1963 volume opines, tongue in cheek, "for he was quite capable of persuading Mr. and Mrs. Scerback that he and Sharon simply must try to solve her math problem (she had to prove that Friday plus Saturday plus Sunday night with Dennis equals only good friendship)

1967. The Vietnam War was escalating. Israel defeated the Arabs in the Six-Day War. Thurgood Marshall was appointed to the Supreme Court. The cordless telephone was tested and the average home cost $22,700.But most of the seniors at Northeast High School were not worried about war or politics or the economy. Although some of them would go on to march in peace protests, experiment with drugs or die in Vietnam, in their senior year a big deal was skipping school to go on a picnic at Great Falls or painting their graduation year on the local water tower.

Ralph Keyes' Is There Life After High School? - a musical investigation of high school's universal impact - barely qualifies as a plot, and Craig Carnelia's score is less than memorable. Yet these shortcomings are transformed into entertaining theater by Colonial Players' high-energy cast. In a series of vignettes, nine characters, some now into middle age, contemplate their approaching high school reunion by recalling their high school experiences. Their isolated remembrances are tied together by varying degrees of embarrassment, with four women who once were cheerleaders, late bloomers and a homecoming queen, and five men - former jocks, a friendless fat boy, bullies, jokers and bookworms remembering their high school days.

Rebecca Miller's five-year high school reunion seemed dead on arrival. Only 30 of her 200-odd classmates from Joppatowne High School class of 2005 RSVPed on a Facebook page set up for the reunion, which was booked at a Harford County bar last year. As the event neared, interest waned. Eventually, the reunion devolved into an informal party at the class president's house. "Maybe one or two people went," Miller said. "They were posting on their Facebook status, 'Hey, it's a great party, everyone should come over.' No one came.

It's been some months since my high school reunion. I don't know why I waited so long. The determination slipped away with almost the same momentum as the passing years. Maybe my reluctance had something to do with the number. Even now, I'm gasping for breath when I say it was the 50th anniversary of my graduation from Claymont High School, just outside Wilmington, Del. I had spent only two years there, but I remember it well: the sub shop next door to the school where I had lunch every day (a Philly cheesesteak and a chocolate Tastykake)

The bobbed hairstyles are white now. The once youthful hands are covered with age spots. And many grip canes or walkers.But these women in their late 80s are as high-spirited as when they graduated from Eastern High School in 1926 wearing white dresses and each carrying a single red rose. They still refer to themselves as girls.Yesterday, 13 class members got together at Edenwald retirement center in Towson to celebrate their 70th high school reunion -- a long way from Broadway and North Avenue where the all-girls city school originally was.And a long way from the Roaring '20s, the decade when George Burns and Gracie Allen debuted on radio, the first motion picture with sound was demonstrated and a Model T Ford sold for $350.

PRINCESS ANNE - An all-white high school reunion next weekend celebrating the "good years" of the 1950s and 1960s has become a reminder of the Eastern Shore's segregationist past, say African-Americans who remember the days when the races led separate lives here in the Somerset County seat. Critics say organizers of the Sept. 25 event for graduates of the old Washington High School have excluded black alumni by inviting only those people who graduated between 1940, the school's first year, to 1969, the last year of legal segregation in Somerset.

IT ISN'T OFTEN that reunions are held for an entire school. It's difficult enough to organize a reunion for a single class. But the Brooklyn Park High School Alumni Association has risen to the occasion. The association's Second Annual Brooklyn Park High School All Class Reunion will be held from 8 p.m. to midnight Nov. 2 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie. Brooklyn Park High School closed in 1990 to make way for a community middle school and North County High. The building on Hammonds Lane was renovated for multipurpose use. It now is the home of the Chesapeake Arts Center, the North County Recreation Center, the Brooklyn Park Senior Center, the County Police Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education offices and Brooklyn Park Middle School.
