Despite receiving a national character education award yesterday, students and faculty at South Carroll High School aren't celebrating. "We announced it to the students and congratulated them because this award is theirs. But we've tried not to make too big a deal of it because it's the behavior we expect and the behavior we feel the students expect for themselves," Assistant Principal John Seaman said. "We shouldn't get too excited about doing the right thing, but at the same time, it's nice to have it recognized by someone else."

Some Mount Airy parents would like to see their local middle and high schools on the school system's newly proposed capital improvement plan, which the Board of Education is expected to vote on Wednesday. Both buildings are in need of modernization, parents say. "We moved to Carroll County on the assumption that our children would have the same opportunities as those in neighboring counties and the same opportunities as those within the same county," wrote Jennifer Seidel, who has a child at Parr's Ridge Elementary, in a letter to Carroll Superintendent Charles I. Ecker, the school board and the county commissioners.

The last thing South Carroll High School teacher Mary Lou Hanley had expected to see on the paper-plate platter painted silver was a papier-mache roasted pig with the head of junior Michael Naugle, an apple stuffed in his mouth. So, naturally, she shrieked. "Oh, you totally freaked me out," Hanley said, to the delight of Naugle and fellow students Vincent Frasco, Tommy Michie and Ian Rhoades, who sat with her at a small table, complete with place setting, salt and pepper shakers and a candle with a paper flame.

Dressed in a black skirt and pinstriped jacket, Courtney Gladhill shook hands with Andrew York, an electrical engineering manager at Northrop Grumman. Gladhill sat down and talked about how she wanted to be a nurse. Her brother was a hemophiliac, she said, and she sometimes helped her ailing grandmother. "I like to help people," Gladhill said, waiting for York's response. "You did a great job with your initial pitch," York said. "Your introduction was great. It gave us a snapshot of how you perceive yourself and how that matches up with a career."

When Luke Finch spotted the 1980 Chevy El Camino SS for sale off Route 27 on the road to Mount Airy, he knew he'd found his car. The South Carroll High School sophomore cleaned out his savings last year to buy the $1,800 set of wheels, but knew he had his work cut out for him: His new ride had rips in its interior and rust along its bottom. It needed a paint job, tires and rims, and, of course, a sound system with subwoofer to pound out heavy-metal favorites Pantera and Metallica. And now he's hoping that, after winning a school contest called "Trick My Ride," his El Camino will be resurrected to its glory days in a matter of months.

Carroll County officials have decided to delay presenting their six-year community investment plan to the county planning commission until February to offer a more finalized list of the buildings, roads and schools the county hopes to fund. In past years, the commission reviewed the plan in November. "My hope is that it will take some of the pressure off the commission, giving them a little more time to think things through," said county Planning Director Steven C. Horn.
