At The Snowball Stand in Woodstock, Erin Compton has snowball-making down to a science. On Thursday night, she dispensed a mound of crushed ice from a tall silver machine on the counter and added a splash of syrup. She piled on more ice and more syrup, topped it with a big scoop of marshmallow, stabbed a spoon into the side, and in less than a minute, it was out the window and into the hands of a waiting customer. It is a ritual that has been performed thousands of times in the three decades the stand has operated at the corner of Route 99 and Woodstock Road.

A snowball stand's success depends on two key things: hot weather and lots of hard work, say Baltimore-area purveyors of the summer treat. Add those ingredients to the crushed ice and syrup concoction that has long been a regional favorite, and summertime entrepreneurs say they can make a decent living during the season's warmest weeks. "A lot of people think it's easy to start it," said Margo Torsell, who along with family members runs a three-year-old stand on Liberty Road in Randallstown.

Haas, the Harford County superintendent of education: I am writing to you in regard to the conditions at William Paca Elementary School in Abingdon.

What seemed a victory for a Scaggsville family whose neighborhood snowball stand has been embroiled in controversy may be nullified by proposed changes to zoning regulations that could be approved within weeks. One week before Mike and Marian Frentz were to appeal the county's decision to revoke the license the family held for 11 years, the county reinstated the license and dismissed the charges it had levied. But county officials are using the issues surrounding the snowball stand built in the family's garage to guide regulations proposed to the comprehensive rezoning plan that is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.

RECENTLY, MY 20-year-old niece and I were driving on Church Street when she remarked, "Oh look, the snowball stand is still there. That was there when I was a kid." Well, it was there when I was a kid, too, and it's still owned by the same family and going strong. In 1960, fewer women worked outside the home than today and fewer still were business owners. That was when Reena Schrader told her mom, Mary Fant, that her in-laws had a snowball stand in Baltimore on Lexington Street and suggested that she open one in Brooklyn Park.

Some say money changes people, but four Baltimore youths running a snowball stand with their own funds this summer say it's strictly business. That means no IOUs, no refunds and no free extra squirts of flavor. Even if you're a friend. In an unorthodox business course based in the real world, Tony Bey, Deonte Austin, and Keith and Korey Minor have set up outside the College Gardens Community Center at 4238 Parkton St. in Southwest Baltimore to sell snowballs, learn about managing money and give back to the center that helped launch them.
