When Calvert Hall's Zach Rowe started thinking last spring about the independent senior project he would complete as a member of the McMullen Scholars Program, he came up with a way to incorporate two of his favorite things - baseball and service. Rowe, a member of the Cardinals MIAA A Conference champion baseball team, put together an invitational camp for some Baltimore City youngsters that he will run Sunday afternoon at Carlo Crispino Stadium on the school's Towson campus. With help from the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation and his Cardinals teammates, Rowe will conduct a four-hour session with at least 20 boys ages 12-to-14 from the James Mosher League.

Kids today, with their different music, outrageous fashion, strange slang and devil-may-care attitude: what's the world coming to? It's coming to the likes of Carley Bynion, a high school senior who has been making teddy bears to give to children unfortunate enough to have been involved in tragic situations. The 17-year-old from Bel Air, who attends John Carroll, started making the stuffed animals as part of a senior project designed to get students to do something that challenges their comfort zones.

Backing away from her insistence that students pass four state tests to graduate, Maryland schools Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick said yesterday that those who repeatedly fail the exams should be allowed to do a senior project instead. Grasmick made the proposal as state officials acknowledged that at least 2,000 to 3,000 students in the Class of 2009 are in jeopardy of not getting a diploma because of their poor performance on the state's High School Assessments. "It is our belief that we should have an alternative for our students," Grasmick told the state school board at its meeting yesterday.

The Presbyterian Home senior housing plan for Fountain Green has its merits, but the degree to which the public is expected to grant tax relief is a major question that needs to be addressed. Presbyterian Home of Maryland is a not-for-profit corporation that's proposing a continuing care retirement community consisting of as many as 700 living units and, possibly, as many as another 160 single family houses for a little more than 150 acres off of Route 543 near the busy Route 22 intersection.

Fourteen seniors from The John Carroll School left from BWI Marshall Airport on May 18 for a week-long mission trip to Roatan, Honduras. They were accompanied by John Carroll teacher Jake Hollin, and his wife, Amy. The students spent a week living and working in the Roatan children's home, school and clinic, operated by Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries. This is part of the students' senior project, a graduation requirement that allows seniors to pursue projects that focus on potential careers, creative expression or community service.

After nearly four hours of debate yesterday about whether to make passing four high school exams a condition of graduation in 2009, the Maryland State Board of Education still appeared deeply divided on what to do. State Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick presented a variety of options to the state school board, from phasing in the tests one at a time, to allowing the option of senior projects, to delaying the requirement for all students. While Grasmick has been an enthusiastic proponent of the tests during her many years as superintendent, it is not clear whether the school board will keep the tests as a graduation requirement for the Class of 2009.

A day after state Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick proposed giving students an alternative to passing high school graduation tests, educators and business leaders expressed concern that her plan would significantly water down the testing requirement. "How rigorous is this alternative route going to be? And how are these kids going to perform when they get out of school?" said Terrylynn Tirell, education director at Advocates for Children and Youth. Some teachers, principals and students said that they support Grasmick's idea and that struggling students should get a second chance.

They gathered the other night - a band of 50 or so girlfriends and classmates - to catch up on important things: the prom, graduation and life after high school. Seniors at St. Paul's School for Girls in Brooklandville got a head start on the third subject when they spent time with professionals in the fields of their choice for two weeks. Dubbed the senior project, the activity is a graduation requirement that gives each student a taste of life to come - of morning commutes, chatty office mates, working lunches and demanding deadlines.

A proposal to impose new limits on construction of senior communities in Howard County will be tabled by the County Council until next month to allow senior advocates time to suggest changes. Ellicott City-Elkridge Councilman Christopher J. Merdon initially proposed increasing from 20 to 50 the minimum number of units for each age-restricted housing project for people age 55 and older - a change that would limit senior developments to a smaller number of larger parcels. Merdon acted after residents in one Ellicott City neighborhood protested construction of a senior townhouse complex close to their developments of traditional single-family homes.

The $15.2 million project is set to include mostly one-bedroom apartments, plus 18 two-bedroom units.

Groundbreaking could take place in two years on a multimillion-dollar senior housing and care development in Ellicott City now that the county's Zoning Board has approved rezoning of the site to permit the project. The proposed Lutheran Village at Miller's Grant senior housing project would include 299 residential units, including 36 single-family detached homes, 48 townhouses and 200 apartments. The $100 million development, on Frederick Road adjacent to the Charles E. Miller branch library and a county senior center, would also provide assisted living and skilled nursing services.
