Several homes and businesses in Northeastern Anne Arundel County were expected to be without natural gas service overnight after a subcontractor for Comcast ruptured a gas line while installing equipment yesterday morning near Sunset Elementary School, an Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman said. The rupture in the 8500 block of Fort Smallwood Road did not result in a fire, explosion or injuries, said Lt. Frank Fennell, the spokesman. The school was evacuated, traffic was halted, and more than 200 homes in the nearby Pine Grove Village lost gas service, which Fennell said would be restored house by house through the night or early today.

Every morning for three weeks, Chris Mosier and the other students at Sunset Elementary School heard the same question over the public address system: "What did you have for breakfast this morning?"The announcement reminded students that some people didn't have anything for breakfast and urged them to participate in the school food drive.The message inspired the 9-year-old Pasadena boy and his fourth-grade classmates to bring in more than 350 cans and boxes of food last week, besting all other grades and earning them the honor of eating breakfast Friday with the Oriole Bird, the Pillsbury Doughboy and Sprout of Green Giant fame in the school gymnasium.

The Anne Arundel County school board voted last night to move 1,640 students to new schools beginning in the fall.Some of those transfers won't take effect immediately, however, because they rely on the completion of school construction projects.Thomas E. Florestiano warned his fellow board members of that development before they voted."It's a massive financial undertaking that we're making, make no doubt about it," Mr. Florestiano said.For example, rather than build a single new elementary school for $9 million, the plan calls for spending $7.1 million to build wings of six or eight classrooms at six schools; Crofton, Davidsonville, Freetown, Jones, Windsor Farm elementaries and Crofton Middle School.
