Each week, when the weather allows, Jon Korin hops on his road bike and pedals far enough for a three-day tally that cyclists call a century ride — 100 miles. This year, the retired Severna Park resident who grew up riding his bike to school reached another cycling goal: He joined with Anne Arundel cyclists to launch the county's first bicycling advocacy group. Korin, 59, is president of Bicycle Advocates for Annapolis and Anne Arundel County (BikeAAA), which began in March as a project for Leadership Anne Arundel, a nonprofit that gathers residents for community service and outreach.

Attention, Anne Arundel County schools math whizzes: Meet Sammy the owl. Sammy is a fictitious character that runs a pole measuring business. His wings are injured, so he can't fly to the top of the pole, which has a rope tied to the top. The rope is 3 feet longer than the pole, and when the rope is pulled taut, Sammy is 5 feet from the base of the pole. How tall in feet is the pole? That query is among the brain-teasing word problems on tests county students tackle in Anne Arundel Community College's annual High School Mathematics Competition.

The sizzle echoed through the halls of the Center of Applied Technology North in Severn, emanating from the school's culinary arts baking and pastry lab, where it was joined by a tempting aroma. Normally, a restaurant kitchen would be responsible for such sounds and smells, but this day it was students and the Culinary Institute of America. Former staff from the Culinary Institute of America were instructing students as part of "Teaching with the CIA," a day of culinary education for Washington-area students interested in careers in the food service and hospitality industry.

EVERY PRIVATE school dreams of hiring an inspired fund-raiser, and Severn School seems to have found one with a Midas touch. Laurette L. Hankins, who left Severna Park for the bright lights of New York and a career that mixed fund raising and show biz, took over this month as Severn School's director of development. "What an extraordinary twist of fate for me, after living in New York and elsewhere for so many years, to be able to truly come back home," Hankins said. "There are so many connections for me. My uncle, John Giddings, was a member of the Severn Class of 1950, and one of my best friends in high school, Cindy Ward, is the daughter of the late Adm. Alfred G. Ward, Severn's headmaster at the time."

One of Lauren Morrell's earliest memories involves a family hike and a candy wrapper, which explains why the 16-year-old from Arnold is now the student representative to the Severn Riverkeeper group and why, the day she turned 15, she applied to become a Pangaea Young Explorer, trying to help a world-renowned adventurer named Mike Horn save the planet. Her passion began with those summer trips to the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York — and that little piece of trash. "We were on top of a mountain, and my father just picked it up and said, 'I just hate it when people litter the mountain,'" Morrell said last week at the Severn School in Severna Park, where she is a senior.

SPRINKLERS HAVE been blasting away at Severn School, watering the rolls of sod installed this summer on the athletic field.The school is getting more than a spruce-up this year. A student center is under construction by the Annapolis architectural firm of Alt, Breeding and Schwarz and is expected to be completed by February, and a handsome brick sign is being built at the school's Maple Avenue entrance.This edifice in mortar and brick is something of a metaphor for the enduring quality of a school that opened in 1914 as a preparatory school for young men hoping to enter the Naval Academy.

A keen knowledge of geography and some good fortune helped Neel Lakhanpal take first place Friday at the Maryland leg of the 23rd annual National Geographic Bee. "Some questions were hard, and I had to think a lot," said the 13-year-old seventh-grade student at Severn School in Severna Park. "It takes a little bit of luck. Some of the questions that others got I would not have known the answer. " Economics had a part, too, in the final question. Neither Neel nor Adam Rusak, a seventh-grader at Lakelands Park Middle School in Gaithersburg, had missed a single question as they entered the championship round.
