Although he has no degrees in archaeology or anthropology, Richard Slutzky has made a hobby of studying Native American culture. About 30 years ago, Slutzky, who was the department chair of health and physical education and the wrestling coach at Aberdeen High, took his hobby into the classroom. "I would trade places with the AP history teacher and for about an hour and a half I would give a brief overview of Native American culture," said Slutzky, who serves as the vice president of the county council.

Slutzky offered insights into the history of an area that humans have frequented since pre-historic times.

Chris Hoffman loves to surpass other people's expectations of him. For example, the sophomore joined the Aberdeen junior varsity football team for the first time last fall and started at center and nose guard despite being 5 feet 4 and 112 pounds. And as a freshman last year, Hoffman went out for the varsity wrestling team despite being a novice in the sport. He picked things up quickly, however, and finished with a 22-13 record at 103 pounds. After working tirelessly throughout the spring and summer to gain experience, Hoffman won his first 35 matches at 112 pounds this season.

"Every one of our kids lost, but we had a couple of guys not get pinned. And because of that, we were able to win our one match of the season by a few points," recalled coach Jerry Lacey, who was then an assistant. "I called [former coach] Dick Slutzky on the phone and I had to brag a little bit. I told him, `We did something you never did: We won a dual meet without actually winning a bout.

Harford County Councilman Dion F. Guthrie said after Tuesday's council meeting - in which the council voted to approve a contentious rezoning package - that the county might be wise to look at rezoning more often than once every eight years. And why not? This year's process provided ample theatrics, including barnyard animals parading out front of council chambers, a long-tenured council member changing her vote in what some said was an election-year ploy, and another council member wistfully recalling the good old days when politicians could settle a score by challenging someone to a duel.

As the new Harford County Council convened its first meeting last night, District E representative Richard Slutzky's fate was still undecided, after an advisory from the state attorney general's office found his dual role as councilman and public school teacher violates the county charter. Slutzky took his seat at the meeting and beforehand said, "I'm sure I'm going to leave teaching. The question is how fast it can be done." He said he planned to meet with county school administrators to move up his retirement, which had been planned for the end of this school year.
