Quick. Somebody tell Roger Hayden he doesn't run the Baltimore County school board anymore.The county executive, once a school board president of long standing, has made it clear to education officials that he will deny their $500,000 request for the reopening of Sudbrook Middle School as a "magnet" facility. By doing so, the executive and his administration practice the kind of micro-managing best left to the people running the schools, not to government number-crunchers.The argument has been made here before: The executive can shape the budget as he sees fit because he's the county's top elected official.

On the second floor of the Sudbrook Arts Centre in Pikesville, Tim Fox snapped his fingers to live piano music as he watched his three teenage ballet students move elegantly through their growing repertoire of ballet positions. "This is not brain surgery and nobody dies if you screw up a step," the instructor said gently, detecting a slight hesitation at the double and triple combinations he was calling out as the trio warmed up at the barre to Richard Strauss' "Russian Folk Dance.

The possibilities for Sudbrook Middle School have been narrowed to three, including a proposal to turn Sudbrook into an innovative public prep school for grades seven through 12.But none of the plans from a committee studying Sudbrook's future foresees reopening the building as a traditional neighborhood middle school.The community will get a chance to talk about all three proposals at a meeting Monday night.The most unusual of the three proposals would reopen the Pikesville-area school with a college preparatory curriculum for grades seven to 12, according to a "private school model."

If you have ever seen a Currier & Ives holiday greeting card— snow on the roof of a Victorian house, a wreath at the door and a Christmas tree glowing warmly in the front bay window — then you can picture the home of Michael Sotir and his wife, Carolyn Black-Sotir. The Sotirs live in a three-story, turn-of-the-century structure fashioned of cedar siding, with a wrap-around front porch, floor to ceiling front windows and a slate roof. And while the holiday season is still weeks away, the glow of autumn foliage embraces the home in the Sudbrook Park neighborhood just northwest of Baltimore.

Sudbrook Middle School will reopen in 1994 with three academic magnet programs, but the Baltimore County school board this week eliminated a proposal for a fourth concentration -- in physical education and athletics.Board members said they killed the physical education proposal because it might be interpreted as existing for the sole purpose of attacting black youngsters to the Pikesville-area school and because including four magnet programs seemed like too ambitious a beginning.The board also gave its initial OK to a proposal for a 1994 magnet program in mathematics, science and computer science Parkville High School on the northeast side of the county.

Baltimore County Executive Roger B. Hayden has pulled the plug on Sudbrook Middle School.One line in his budget, eliminating $500,000 the school board requested to equip the building, is enough to halt plans to reopen the 1,000-seat school with innovative magnet programs in math, science, performing arts and language.It also might force a boundary change that would affect Pikesville, Old Court and Woodlawn middle school students and renew the controversy over racial makeup that had plagued Sudbrook since the late 1970s.

Baltimore County Executive Roger B. Hayden said yesterday that he has decided to allow Sudbrook Middle School to reopen in 1994 as a magnet school, three months after he stunned administrators and community groups by yanking money for the project from the school department's capital budget.Mr. Hayden blamed school officials for not keeping him informed about the project's status. "Communications have got to be better," he said. "I will be very reluctant to ever do this again."He said he decided to restore the money last week after conversations with community members and groups.

When is a Baltimore County school overcrowded? It depends who's counting.The school board bases its estimates of school capacity on an average of 24 students per classroom.But County Executive Roger B. Hayden says the standard should be 26 students -- which is how he budgeted for teachers.A bitter battle between Mr. Hayden and school officials over this small difference could determine the fate of a plan to reopen Sudbrook Middle School with magnet programs to reduce overcrowding without drawing new boundaries that could exacerbate racial tensions.

"You get up. You are black," the woman screamed as she pointed to a student in the front row to leave. "Segregation now. Segregation forever. " The words were so astounding to this group of eighth-graders that they sat silent and stunned. The woman was Janice Washington, a teacher and civil rights activist who wanted eighth-graders at Sudbrook Middle Magnet School in Baltimore County to feel the same sense of outrage that she had felt as an African-American growing up in Texas, even if just for a second.

Now he's off to bigger digs, with the help of a $300,000 grant from the Baltimore County Department of Economic Development. Health-Way Pharmacy will relocate from Bedford Avenue to a new $2.4 million, two-story retail and office building it is developing at Reisterstown Road and Sudbrook Lane.

Somewhere a phone is ringing - maybe it belongs to a school board member or a state legislator or a lawyer. Calling is a parent who got the news this month that his child didn't get a coveted slot at Sudbrook Magnet Middle School, a parent who desperately wants someone to reverse that decision. Principal Mary E. Heine has heard all the stories, all the pleading. The wildest one, she said, is that of the woman who had her daughter repeat fifth grade after she was rejected so that she could reapply to Sudbrook the next year.

A Baltimore County juvenile court judge ordered yesterday that two teenage girls be detained until they can be tried on explosives charges filed after a threatening note led to the evacuation and early closing of a county middle school. Master Jacqueline E. Dawson said that she had "to be concerned about community safety" in deciding whether to allow one of the girls to return home with her parents or be held at a juvenile facility to await trial. Dawson closed the courtroom for the detention hearing of the other girl after that teenager's lawyer argued that she could not speak freely with reporters and others in the courtroom about "sensitive matters" she wanted the judge to consider.
