Morgan Jones couldn't hold back the tears. Ten inches of her brown locks that she had carefully grown and groomed for four years were gone with a decisive snip of the scissors. "Oh, my hair," the misty-eyed teenager cried as she held her severed ponytail. Her mom and her friends surrounded her, giving reassuring hugs. Jones is one of the organizers of the Locks of Love campaign at Harford Technical High School, which continues throughout this week. People who have at least 10 inches of hair can donate their locks and get a free haircut and styling from Harford Tech's cosmetology students.

HAGERSTOWN - On a sunlit Washington County hillside, with a 21-gun salute, Seaman Craig B. Wibberley was laid to rest yesterday, nine days after he and 16 other crew members were killed in a terrorist attack on a Navy destroyer refueling in a Yemen harbor. Hundreds of residents of Hagerstown and surrounding communities turned out along a 10-mile route to pay their respects as a hearse bore the flag-draped coffin of Wibberley, 19, from a Hagerstown church through cornfields and subdivisions to the cemetery south of the city.

Principal H. Edward Parker has an odd way of keeping in touch with his former students: He does business with them. Graduates of Sollers Point/Southeastern Technical High School have fixed Parker's cars, remedied his home's ailing air conditioning system and helped his mother and him through medical emergencies. It's no surprise then that Parker has high hopes for the future. "I have absolute confidence in the next generation," says Parker, whose school was honored yesterday for its certification by an international standards-setting group.

ISSUE: -- In the wake of increasing complaints from parents and school board members about the prevalence of inappropriately dressed students, Harford County school officials are stepping up enforcement of the dress code. Some students think the dress code is too stringent, but administrators say it's about setting limits on what is appropriate attire for the school environment. Are school officials overreacting with their increased enforcement of the dress code? Uniforms would benefit education I think it's about time Harford schools had a dress code, for the following reasons: 1. School is not about fashion.

As the seat of Harford County, Bel Air is a hub of government and related offices. But the town, incorporated in 1874, and its surrounding area are a blend of old and new, of quaint downtown shops and bustling mall businesses, of people pausing to greet friends and hustling to work and school. "It's growing by leaps and bounds," said Donny Bromley, an antiques dealer who has lived in Bel Air since 1949. "It used to be rural." It's become an area where people like raising families amid conveniences but away from the Interstate-95 corridor.

Tell me where do you go when you got no dough, "There must be a way out of here. "But I've got to find some peace of mind, "There must be a place that I can find." -- Garnet Mimms and the EnchantersOn the sidewalk near Big Boyz Bail Bonds and the liquor store, a few men stand in a splash of sunlight and speak in reverent tones of the high school kid everyone calls "Dawg."It's a nearly discarded neighborhood, a tiny chunk of Middle River in eastern Baltimore County, the kind of place where police removed two public telephones because dopers were using them to run their packages.
