The ball field at Third Avenue Park in Glen Burnie is less than a 100-yard stroll through the woods from Frank Buckland's home. It is a walk that he and Laddy, a 42-pound Australian cattle dog/collie mix, frequently take to practice the sport that has made Buckland a seven-time world champion. "I've always had a love for dogs," Buckland said. "I've had them following me around ever since I was a kid. " When Laddy followed the 68-year-old retiree to the park on a recent early-autumn afternoon, the wag of the dog's tail and the energy in his stride made obvious his enthusiasm for the task at hand.

THE VOTE IS IN at Shiloh Middle. Votes cast during the school's first "Meet the Teacher" night Thursday selected the PTO as the official governing body for activities that bridge parents and pupils with teachers, principal and staff. Unlike the PTA, which is guided by national rules and expectations, the PTO has no national umbrella and permits a greater measure of autonomy to the school community. "The whole philosophy is individuality," said Carol Donaldson, a parent who has years of experience in PTA and PTO. Officers will be nominated for the Shiloh PTO at 7 p.m. tomorrow.

" The outpouring of fellow clergy and laity filled New Shiloh Baptist Church in the Mondawmin section of Northwest Baltimore, where Dr. Carter preached for more than four decades. He died of cancer last month at age 76. Between passages of gospel-style anthems and hymns, Dr. Carter was recalled as a man who did not settle for second-best and believed in pressing on, challenging himself to do better.

Unlike other more sedate dog events, like the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, which is more like a beauty pageant, this contest,  held last weekend in Chattanooga, Tennessee was pure athleticsm. Running. Leaping. Catching. Or, as organizers put it, "Rather than prancing on carpet ... these amazing canine athletes gouged out chunks out of turf as they raced to snag spinning flying discs in midair.

Every member of the big group was reading a book, quietly, for 100 minutes. Twelve reading and language arts teachers from the school watched over them, distributing hard candies to fuel their literary gusto. It was the school's annual readathon, organized by reading specialist Joanne Ashwell, and it raised $3,578 to be divided between the school and Literacy Council of Carroll County.
