Feb. 6 must have been really busy for top bosses at Duratek, the Columbia radioactive-waste disposal company. They signed new "golden parachute" deals that would pay them big money just in case Duratek got sold to another company and they lost their jobs. Then their board agreed to sell Duratek to another company - EnergySolutions of Salt Lake City - although Duratek's biggest shareholder turned out to hate the deal. Potential ... and fruition. Wishes ... and fulfillment. All by the close of business Feb. 6. The heck with magic carpets; Aladdin has a better ride that floats through the sky. Golden parachutes have been described as job insurance for top executives.

When Al Shawver Jr. of Finksburg won his first race in the semi-late division at Hagerstown Speedway three years ago, it looked like he would be following in his father's footsteps.That was quite a compliment for the younger Shawver because his father, Al Sr., was one of the top late model drivers in the '80s, capturing three track championships at Winchester (Va.) and Lincoln (Pa.) speedways.By the time the 1992 season ended, Al Jr. had won two features in less than 10 races driving a car built by his father.

When the Spanish-speaking population of Oakland Mills Middle School jumped from 20 to 40 children last year, school counselor Roberta Shawver decided it was time for action. About the same time, Murray Simon, president of the local Hispanic organization Conexiones, noticed a disturbing trend: a high dropout rate among Latino students. Before the 2002-2003 school year began, Shawver contacted Simon with an idea. She said she and other teachers realized "these kids had some kind of unique needs that we wanted to address and help them to be more successful at school and more comfortable at school."

Despite gradual improvements in Adelphia cable's Internet service, hundreds of Carroll County residents, Westminster's mayor and many other public officials remain angry about the company's unreliable technology and inconsistent customer service standards. The good news, Carroll officials said, is that a long-promised technical upgrade seems to have reduced the number of complaints about Internet service during the past two weeks. Where the county's cable coordinator, Carol Shawver, received about 50 complaints a week before the Feb. 21 upgrade, she said she now receives about 20 a week.
