People who hate unions should go to work today. Everyone has his own notion of Gary Condit's crime. To his Democratic colleagues, it is being unre-electable. Who said our governor was dull? O'Malley for State's Attorney! Never mind which O'Malley. That can be specified later. School tomorrow. Make the most of it.

I am Zahara Unique-Lynne Johnson, a 23-year-old Morgan State graduate from Camden, N.J. I live part of the time in Baltimore, part of the time in my hometown. But no matter the state, one thing remains the same: my name is always pronounced wrong. The correct pronunciation is Za-hi-ra, but my mom felt frivolous on that 26th day of August, and opted out of spelling it that way. On the first day of school, I can remember teachers butchering it. "Za-hair-ra" or "Za-hor-ra," they'd say with certainty.

Reporters were everywhere last spring, or so it seemed to students at Northeast High School -- the site of one of the most notorious teacher-student sex scandals in the nation.Handling the continued media coverage is one key part of a back-to-school plan to provide support for students and teachers at Northeast -- the school where three teachers have each been charged with having a sexual relationship with students.From the day in April when Ronald Walter Price was arrested and charged with having sex with one of his students, teens couldn't step off school grounds, go to the local convenience store, or even wait at a bus stop without reporters asking them for quotes or putting television cameras in their faces.

Robert W. Gladden Jr. "expected to be killed" on the day he allegedly shot a fellow student at Perry Hall High School, according to his lawyers, who said the teen remains on suicide watch in jail. The comments came on the day of the 15-year-old Gladden's first court appearance since the incident; his morning bail hearing was postponed after his attorneys requested more time to secure and examine recent mental health evaluations. Gladden did not speak in court, but kept his head down, letting his long dark hair hang in his face.

With Carroll County planning a rare public school day on Good Friday to make up for snow days, administrators are bracing for least 15 percent absenteeism tomorrow among teachers - and perhaps even more student absences. More than 300 of the school district's 1,950 teachers had given notice by Tuesday afternoon - the most recent statistics available - that they plan to take the revoked spring vacation day as a personal day. "The surprise is not the number of teachers taking off," said Stephen Guthrie, the school system's assistant superintendent of administration.

Schools in the Baltimore region remained closed today for the third snow day in a row, and many officials were skeptical about being able to reopen school doors to students tomorrow because of inaccessible roads, sidewalks and facilities. Baltimore County and Prince George's County already have decided to keep schools closed tomorrow. Officials in Baltimore County said many of the system's 766 school buses are trapped in snow and not all school buildings are yet serviceable. School officials in Baltimore and in Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford, Howard and Montgomery counties had not yet decided last evening whether to stay shut for the last day of the week.

Michele Becker never thought teaching would be a 9-to-5 breeze. But in the 10 years she's been at it, she has felt the workload grow and her voice in shaping Carroll County's educational policies shrink. Every year seems to have brought another standardized test for her fourth-graders at Linton Springs Elementary, with no support staff added to help. This year, she learned of newly required lessons she'd have to teach, just three days before the children arrived. Becker and most other teachers at Eldersburg's Linton Springs say they've had enough.

Band director Barry Enzman attended the Maryland Music Educators' Association annual convention in Ocean City earlier this month, where an overflow crowd of teachers came to hear him give a presentation and clinic on jazz bands.
