In reading the article ("CA explores heated pool open year-round," June 6) on the possibility of turning the Dorsey Hall pool into a heated year-round pool, my memory was jarred. CA currently has two heated outdoor pools, Stevens Forest and Swansfield. Wouldn't making necessary adjustments to either of those pools be more fiscally responsible than reconfiguring a third? Just a thought. Sue Heyman Columbia

The Howard County school board rejected last night a proposal to split the county's program for seriously emotionally disturbed students between Stevens Forest and Waterloo elementary schools.Instead, the board, in a 3-2 decision, adopted a plan that limits the Waterloo program to 20 students and keeps its special education staff intact. The rest of the students will be sent to the Cedar Lane School for physically and mentally disabled students."I believe that putting this program at Stevens Forest is like putting a square peg in a round hole, and I'm not willing to do that," said board member Stephen Bounds.

Life is sometimes a puzzlement.The residents of the San Fernando Valley in California are still devastated by the aftermath of the earthquake. Only the tremors moved fast.I have wondered how and why it was possible for the media, politicians and Federal Emergency Management Agency to travel to the area within hours but not load their planes with food, water and essentials to be distributed immediately upon arrival.Paperwork and promises do not feed children when they are hungry or help heal wounds and suffering.

It's a Casual Thursday at James Kendig's small business. Donning a maroon T-shirt, jean shorts and some old pins he found at his grandmother's house, James considers himself the manager. He supervises advertising, money-handling and customer service, and he takes his job seriously - even if he does work barefoot. But this isn't an ordinary operation. James is spending part of his summer running a lemonade stand to raise money for the American Cancer Society. And he's only 9 years old. "I was at a restaurant and I was just squeezing lemons into my water," said James, a rising fifth-grader at Stevens Forest Elementary School.

Todd, who oversaw the 46 students from Running Brook Elementary, and Vanisko, who oversaw the 71 students from nearby Stevens Forest Elementary, joined forces to encourage their students to keep up their attendance at the Running Brook summer school program.

By the end of the school year, George Pittman hopes that the students at Stevens Forest Elementary School will be ready to begin their experiments examining the effects of cigarette smoke on plants. But if more time is needed, that's OK, too. Pittman said he believes that kids learn about science by figuring things out for themselves. It might take years to perform the experiment, but meanwhile, students are learning about oxygen and ambient light and control data. They are building chambers to hold the plants and figuring out how to make sure each plant receives the same amount of smoke.
