Veteran Assistant Principal Stan Neumann knew just what to do when he was confronted in the Towson High School hallway Thursday afternoon by two naked, masked runners streaking toward him."I yelled, 'STOP!' " he said."We've got 1,000 kids here," Mr. Neumann explained yesterday. "I was worried that some little girl or female teacher would walk into the hall and get run over. Someone could get hurt."When neither of the young runners slowed at his command, Mr. Neumann grabbed the nearest one around the waist, taking an unintentional elbow to the forehead, which caused a small scratch, he said.

When they go to the front office, they trek across a huge floor mat that urges them to "say no to drugs and alcohol."But the students, teachers and administrators don't think their school is free of drugs and alcohol.

Sixteen-year-old Eleanor Weir held her right leg out in front of her, arched that foot and brought her toes delicately down to the floor, then back up again. She was pretending that the floor was a cat, and she was trying to pet it with her foot. "Yup, bup, bup, bup" guest teacher Gerard Charles said, counting out the beat at Towson's Carver Center for Arts & Technology. Eleanor and 27 other cat petters in training were taking an intermediate-level ballet class with Charles, the ballet master for the Joffrey Ballet.

A lingering back injury from football season had kept the junior out of the lineup, but he refused to sit out another match with the win against the Cardinals at stake.

Nine Baltimore County schools, including Towson High, Dulaney High, and Loch Raven High, sent marching bands to the county's 26th Annual Marching Band Showcase on Sunday at Johnny Unitas Stadium at Towson University. The event served as an opportunity for the county's various marching bands to gather at the same place and enjoy each other's routines in a non-competitive environment. While the bands typically perform as a complement to their football teams during halftime, the showcase was an opportunity for the bands to take center stage as the main attraction.

The only time Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil has stepped foot inside M&T Bank Stadium was before his senior year at Towson High School. A former running back who once emulated San Diego Chargers star LaDainian Tomlinson, Cudjoe-Virgil was then a linebacker who idolized Ravens icon Ray Lewis. Cudjoe-Virgil did not imitate either of his football heroes that summer afternoon in 2009 at a college scouting combine in Baltimore. He didn't even look like himself. "I didn't have a good day," Cudjoe-Virgil, now a 6-foot-2, 250-pound junior linebacker for Maryland, recalled Tuesday while sitting in the cafeteria at the Gossett Team House.

Sergi, the filming moved indoors to a ground-floor classroom, where Ms. Turner was to confront the teacher during a parent conference.

At a recent Baltimore County Board of Education meeting, a change in the wording of certain documents has allowed the school system to remove school libraries and department heads in alignment with plans to increase funding for new technology. School Superintendent Dallas Dance has begun his crusade to fix one of the best school systems in the nation. I truly wish the best of luck to a school system that has given me a spectacular public education, but Mr. Dance's attempt to cut libraries and department heads to save money seems misguided.
