All he had to do was flash a cool half-smile and the room went ballistic. Baltimore R&B-pop crooner Mario made an appearance yesterday at the Charles Theatre, where 120 students from Thurgood Marshall High School were invited to an early screening of Freedom Writers. The movie, in theaters next month, is based on the true story of a troubled California high school and a young English teacher (Hilary Swank) who inspires her students to write their often-violent life stories. Mario -- who last year appeared in the Baltimore-based Step Up, his first flick -- plays Andre, a vocal student who's conflicted about his life in the streets.

After hearing from parents and community residents, Baltimore school officials agreed to a few changes to a proposed plan to reduce school space. But concerned citizens still have time to make their voices heard. Speaking up could yet make a difference in the proposals to be voted on next week. In the face of declining enrollment, Baltimore school administrators are looking to reduce overall space by 15 percent over the next three years. State officials are tying $41 million in school construction funds to the closing of some city schools.
