STRATFORD, Conn. - The cool evening mist doesn't penetrate the ground beneath this beech tree in Stratford. Near here, monk parakeets native to South America, the descendants of long-ago escapees, have built their intricate nests. This is a favorite walk of Stratford poet Norah Pollard. She enjoys the juxtaposition of craggy fishermen and women on a nearby dock and the delicate green birds meant for cages. The beech's trunk is covered with whirls and folds that look, says the poet, like body sex-parts.

Lois O'Brien-Cronin, the former dean of students at Villa Julie College who later worked with an academic and career counseling program for women at the Community College of Baltimore County's Essex campus, died of a stroke Thursday at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The longtime Mays Chapel resident was 84. "She was one tough broad, but she had a great sense of humor. She was just a hoot," said Paula K. Minsk, who was director of education at the Stratford School of Business in the 1990s, where Mrs. O'Brien-Cronin had also worked.

Paying for the mistakes and lies of the staff at Stratford University is something you can look forward to if you or your child applies to Stratford. I have been enrolled at the university since it was under the name of Baltimore International College, and since Stratford took over, it has been a mess. I was dropped from a class and now I am being told it messed up my financial aid and the refund I was due. I always do my financial aid package early but the person in charge of attendance, a woman who was not only handling attendance but was school counselor has been fired.

Shakespeare in Washington Move over, Stratford-Upon-Avon, England. Make way, Stratford, Ontario. Washington will be the international Shakespeare hub for the first six months of 2007. That's when the city hosts "Shakespeare in Washington," a multidisciplinary festival featuring plays, films, operas, concerts and exhibits by almost 50 organizations ranging from Russia's Kirov Ballet to New York's Tiny Ninja Theater and Washington's National Building Museum.

Lois Burdett, author of today's read-aloud selection, is a teacher in Stratford, Ontario, a town that shares the name of Stratford, England, the place most often associated with playwright William Shakespeare.The schools in Burdett's Canadian hometown are named after Shakespeare plays (she teaches at Hamlet Elementary School). But when she asked her second-graders who Shakespeare was, they didn't know. One child responded: "I don't know any of the big kids."That was 20 years ago, and it inspired Burdett to set out to make Shakespeare's plays come alive for her students.

Baltimore International College is set to hand over control of its operations to Virginia's Stratford University after restructuring its debt and receiving approval from the required accrediting agencies. The downtown culinary college held its final graduation Dec. 10 and will officially become a branch of Stratford on Jan. 1. Baltimore International students will be able to continue their classes at Stratford in January, and the branch will begin admitting new students in February.

Virginia's Stratford University has received preliminary approval from the Maryland Higher Education Commission to take over operations of embattled Baltimore International College on Jan. 1. The approval from MHEC was one condition of a legal settlement reached in September that forestalled the culinary college's loss of accreditation. Now, the takeover must be approved by the agency that accredits Stratford and by the banks that hold bonds backing Baltimore International's operations.

The plan announced Monday to save Baltimore International College is not a finished dish. But it is in the oven - and it has the whiff of something promising. Baltimore International College, which over the last four decades has produced scores of culinary workers for area restaurants, has agreed to become affiliated with Virginia-based Stratford University, a move designed to avert an accreditation crisis that had threatened to close the downtown college. The proposal calls for students to continue going to classes as Baltimore International students, until Jan. 1. After that date, classes will continue under the auspices of Stratford University.

NEW YORK -- Perhaps it's time for Geoffrey Rush's second lightning strike.The droll Australian actor, 47, labored on the stage in relative obscurity for more than 25 years, then became an ``overnight sensation'' with his Oscar-winning, tour de force portrayal of mad/brilliant pianist David Helfgott in 1996's ``Shine.''``A film about a troubled pianist from Perth,'' Rush ruefully describes the movie that made him a hot property in international filmmaking circles. ``I mean, you try to pitch that one.''It certainly wasn't the kind of premise that might have attracted Hollywood A-list talents (such as Rush's one-time college roommate Mel Gibson)
